Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

downie78 on Modern Merfolk

Thanks for the suggestions on the lands, but I would rather have input on the rest of the deck, specifically the sideboard, as I think that matters a lot more than what nonbasic blue source I use. I don't think Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is needed because if I have a vial on board I'm just board vomiting anyways, plus Merrow Reejerey is already there to help me get out all my creatures. @Evoska: I don't think that the unblockability of Inkfathom Infiltrator is very relevant, since the point of this deck is islandwalk anyways, but I appreciate the feedback.

Hey buddy, Necropotence, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, I'll take more of a look when I get a chance!

I disagree with @Pwogenitus2 on the land issue here, 35 is perfect for a Shadowborn Apostle deck, But there is another issue im seeing.

You dont have nearly enough Apostles. In my Shadowborn Apostle deck, i run 35 of them. As many as i do lands. I very rarely have 6 of them by turn 4. I can only imagine it takes you longer to do so with 20. Thrumming Stone Is in fact cute, But with 20 apostles, I cant see it ever hitting your entire deck.

Some notable cards you're missing: Skullclamp Yawgmoth's Will Mirror Entity (The best white demon to ever exist may i add) Vault of the Archangel Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Demon of Death's Gate (turn 2 9/9? Fuck your Serra Ascendant buddy :) ) Living Death

If you wanna look at a "Complete" List that ive been playing with for a while now in real life, Teysa's Shadowborn Apostles

Also, I completely skipped over your fixing of Mana. I have played with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx plenty of times, but it never seems to work out quite the way I planned. Unless you had a bit more things to dump Mana on, I would substitute Blossoming Sands in for it, no it doesn't let you scry, nor does it let you get more than one Mana per turn, but it can possibly put multiple counters on your creatures with Sunbond on them if you have your Hardened Scales out. The Windswept Heaths can also possibly be cut, you don't really need them unless you had Temple Gardens in here. They also take a life, and thin your deck a bit. Shock lands would be a good replacement, and you don't need to pay the 2 life unless you are desperate.

I also took out the 2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in favor of 2x more Heir of the Wilds I really if ever used the Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ability so I decided to take it out in favor of increasing draws of Heir of the Wilds.

@ downie78: There are other non-Island blue sources you could use like Yavimaya Coast, Ancient Ziggurat, Cascade Bluffs, Temple of Enlightenment, Vivid Creek, Wanderwine Hub and Halimar Depths, among others similar to them. Since you are running Mono-blue, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would probably work fairly well for you as well.

Well, these creatures do indirectly add mana through Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
