Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

I've played around with elves a little, and I've found that a Beastmaster Ascension can be almost as great as a behemoth for only being three mana. It also costs less, helping with the budget concept. I would definitely add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, because a ridiculous amount of mana is always fun. Looks good though!

Awesome, dude! Don't forget about Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx so you'll have plenty of mana to mill with.

My own thoughts:

I have this deck too, and I have so much fun with it. People don't expect it anymore, and they don't have their sideboard stuff for it anymore too. Things I can recommend:

Agent of the Fates-nice 3 drop 3/2 with Deathtouch. and since you are running Herald, bestowing Herald on him will trigger the Heroic ability. And provides the extra 2 Devotion too.

Merciless Executioner-A very nice ETB effect, and you can even Whip him back. And you can even sac himself when he comes out.

And even though Sign in Blood costs less, try out Read the Bones. For one more mana, you get to Scry, then Draw. And then lose 2, which I find is better. Just for the Scrying. Try mainboarding it.

Also, you could use a couple Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

And Hero's Downfall, which is a staple in this deck.

This isn't exactly budget, your deck is $40-$45; it's still seems pretty good though.

I would lose the Radiant Fountains and replace them with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Although this isn't a devotion-based deck, Nykthos goes well with your double white-cost permanents (Citadel Siege, Soul of Theros, Dictate of Heliod Spear of Heliod, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Fountain isn't exactly useful.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx needs to be in there if you have the money. Also because this is a slower deck, replace Sign in Blood with Read the Bones

in all honesty, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx(pretty ok for monocolor decks though) and Temple of Abandon(in standard, it's ok. outside, not too much) would only slow this down in ramp. IMO, take it out and maybe put in some fetchlands like Bloodstained Mire and Wooded Foothills. remember, it's just life. since this /was/ standard it's still pretty ok. just needs some other new(or old) things.

Yeah Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx was just a little extra land to use. I have no extra need for fixing and I thought it would be kind of cool. I am using Swiftwater Cliffs as a 1 of for extra fixing including my 2 in the side for control options with my counters and Keranos, God of Storms.

Any ideas/suggestions for the list? Do you like it?

I'd love Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx but my local store has none, but defiantly what I'm wanting to look for, just a 1 or 2 of.

And Mistcutter Hydra is a card I havnt really thought of, but a nice hasted turn 4-5 7/7could really be nice!

As for craters claw, I'm after a more aggro board presence approach, I have that in there for slower decks where I'm having that extra mana to stomp over!
