Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

SynergyBuild on Land Based Combo Help

Bazaar of Baghdad & Life from the Loam, with support from Ramunap Excavator/Crucible of Worlds will give tons of support to Windgrace's ability to 'draw cards.'

Punishing Fire + Grove of the Burnwillows = allows you to Shock creatures on repeat.

Deserted Temple + Rings of Brighthearth + any land that taps for 5 mana = infinite mana. Think Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Gaea's Cradle, or Cabal Coffers to get that kind of mana.

Otherwise, Petrified Field + Rings of Brighthearth allows you to repeatedly bring back lands (the second copy can target the Petrified Field!)

Here's some land recommendations to both speed up the deck and give them more utility. All recommendations are under $20.

Lands to swap:
Sunken Hollow instead of Rupture Spire
Underground River instead of Shimmering Grotto
Morphic Pool instead of Transguild Promenade
Drowned Catacomb instead of Grixis Panorama
Tainted Isle instead of Esper Panorama

Since you don't need to fetch a lot of basics, I'd swap a few basics for dual lands to ensure you always have your colors, ~10 basics is more than enough for a deck
Creeping Tar Pit
Dimir Guildgate
Darkslick Shores
Dreadship Reef
Secluded Glen

Utility Lands worth including:
Arcane Lighthouse
Temple of the False God
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
Field of Ruin
Ghost Quarter
Inventors' Fair
Ash Barrens
Isolated Watchtower
Tolaria West (Transmute this land, to fetch another one you need)
Crypt of Agadeem
Reflecting Pool
Spire of Industry
Shizo, Death's Storehouse
Hall of the Bandit Lord

sylvannos on When to buy into ultimate ...

You want to buy after the set is released and people are still drafting it. A lot of the time prices on Masters sets drop as people sell chase cards for immediate cash to buy more packs/draft. Prices go back up shortly afterward, so this window is tight.

@APPLE01DOJ: On the night of prerelease, I traded a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and some other chase rares out of Theros for a playset of Snapcaster Mages lol.

If you want a way to deal with opponents’ lands without expending your own, then there’s always Field of Ruin. Faith's Fetters can deal with problem lands too, although it doesn’t stop Cabal Coffers or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. There’s always good old Stone Rain too

I still recommend Strip Mine and Dust Bowl first though! They’re so good because they don’t take up nonland card slots!

I think one of our problems is that we don’t see eye to eye on hate cards. I LOVE cards like Blood Moon, Rest in Peace, Aven Mindcensor, Torpor Orb etc because they all punish degenerate decks! It brings me so much joy to drop a hate card because it helps me just as much as any other card that only helps me - by hurting everyone else

Aura of Silence is exactly like that. You’re wrong about it being a 1:1 answer card because it prevents players from doing everything they want in a turn. No matter what, it deters further threats, and once someone plays something that you don’t like, you can just blow it up!

You can also think about it this way - hitting your opponents in the face with Kalemne doesn’t help you, it only hurts your opponents. Hate cards are no different

Anyways that’s just me - I’m not here to tell you to build a certain deck or play a certain way, I just want you to know where I come from :)

For future reference, there is a Rules Q&A section for questions regarding cards, card interactions, and the rules. Unlike other forum sections, you can "Mark as Answer" a post, helping with forum organization.

shadow63 is correct. From the Gatherer ruling:

This effect doesn’t affect names or supertypes. It won’t turn any land into a basic land or remove the legendary supertype from a legendary land, and the lands won’t be named “Mountain.”

So, for a few examples:

Underground Sea will become: Underground Sea; Land - Mountain.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will become: Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx; Legendary Land - Mountain.

I appreciate your consideration! When I came across this deck, the low land count and lower Avg CMC reminded me a lot of the mono-colored commander deck that I've been working on! I love tempo-control builds, but I'll usually wield blue over white myself. Feel free to check it out:

Taking into account what you've said about not being able to effectively use a high number of basic lands in your deck, I guess the only other land-related suggestion I could have is maybe a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to keep your land count low but still have a chance to 'surge' for extra mana if you need it in a pinch. That being said, I've taken some time to play-test your deck a bit and I really like how it performs. Basically just four turns of you not posing a threat at all and then suddenly you've got a juggernaut that no one's prepared for, and it only gets bigger. The simplicity and centrality of the commander's role in this deck makes it surprisingly resistant to outside disruption. I love to play control, but this is definitely the deck I'd pick if I had to play against control.
