Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

and maybe drop 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx 4 seems a lot especially if 2 are stuck in your hand

I highly suggest dropping the Mana Confluence all together from this deck. In my experience. Having this land in a two colored deck is just a way to shorten your Life total advantage. Granted, the mana fixing it has can be say a three or four colored deck, but having it deal one damage EVERY time to need it's mana can take a serious toll in most matches.

If I were to offer a replacement card(s) for the Mana Confluence , I would suggest adding two, maybe even three copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . With how many double white symbols you have on your permanents. It could provide some ramp in the early game, and allow for multiple spell casts later. Not to mention how well it interacts with Hidden Strings . Other than that this seems like a really fun and solid deck to play.

Evolving Wilds is to clean(thin) out the deck as well as fogger for Deathrite Shaman in those rare situations. 6 basics is very rare to come out all at once in my hand, and even the shuffling effect is useful in times where Courser of Kruphix is showing just tons of land and no good spell (also can cause a double life gain trigger from double land drop).

Mutavault : Yes its for more aggressive situations, but also control decks who board wipe a ton and I have no Golgari Charm

I have considered Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , but don't really see me using it all that often.

amep Thanks for all the suggestions and commentary.

Of the tutors you suggested Summoner's Pact is the one I've been considering the most. Because its a delayed cost and puts the creature into my hand it allows me a little more versatility considering most of my creatures are X cost 0/0 Hydras.

Garruk Wildspeaker was actually the first choice for this build but I got my hands on a copy of Garruk, Primal Hunter first and got attached to the card draw he allows.

I wont go with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx because I wont go the devotion route. I do use Skyreaping in the sideboard to deal with fliers but I sometimes struggle even to get to 4 devotion to deal with angels. Nykthos would rarely be worth it.

Pithing Needle Is an excellent suggestion. It hoses a lot of creature based combo and It definitely belongs in the sideboard for Modern.

+1 from me! I really like this idea! I would highly recommend Waste Not , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Dark Prophecy (which is risky with your build but could pay off monumentally)! Nice job capitalizing on the nefarious nature of black!!

Evolving wilds is very very very very bad. If you have urborg it's a swamp, sure, but most of the time it's a guild gate that only taps for one colour.

Maybe swap for a guildgate (which will always tap for G or B) of even add either

  • the other 2 mutavault for a little more aggression

  • Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx because you have enough devotion to at least break even.

Some thoughts on Vampire Hexmage ... I recommend getting a couple Pithing Needle s for your Sideboard.

I would also look into faster ramp.... Utopia Sprawl is a great turn 1 or if you wanna do turn 1 Arbor Elf and turn 2 Utopia Sprawl .... that's 4 potential mana turn 2. If you wanna go bigger, you can play Garruk Wildspeaker on that turn 2 and then have more land untapping shenanigans!! The Birds of Paradise doesn't seem as important and if you can sport the Overgrown Tomb s, it makes an Arbor Elf just as good as a Birds of Paradise pretty much.

Garruk Wildspeaker is great because he can untap Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx so if you go the devotion route, a turn 3 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would produce all the mana you need to get the big guys out with sufficient counters. If you don't like the idea of Arbor Elf or Garruk Wildspeaker , look into Voyaging Satyr as an untap for your lands.

Your goal should be a turn 3 Corpsejack Menace and some hydra. To help with this, I would look into some green tutors. Green Sun's Zenith , Summoner's Pact , or Chord of Calling would all work for this, it is just a matter of how you wanna play the deck. I don't think you have enough creatures to go Chord of Calling and make use of the convoke (If you go Devotion route, it would be a different story cuz you would prolly have 4 Burning-Tree Shaman s for the devotion boost). Summoner's Pact is good especially if you want to kill on the same turn as you use the spell but I don't think you have the haste necessary for this. So if you are cool with paying the upkeep cost, then it would work just fine. I would recommend Green Sun's Zenith because you prolly won't have to worry about sorcery vs instant speed tutoring and it brings your creature directly onto the field.

I like the deck though and I'm glad you are getting into modern haha

Seems like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would fit well in this deck...maybe remove 4 x Mountain s and play off that devotion? Price
