also, if and when you can get it Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will be rad for you, like z0mbiekiller619 mentioned above.

First rule of consistency is to play 4 of each card, it increases odds you'll draw it, not just how many you will have in play. If it's legendary/planewwalker or a real high caster, you may want to run fewer, but only if it's not key to your win condition.

Lifegain on it's own is hard to win. It's more of a solid defense until your wincon shows up. Test of Endurance or Felidar Sovereign can both give you insta-win if you don't just wear them down first.

Do you think Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is to slow for this deck?

Hi Saljen! Thanks for the comment. At first glance, I agree with you - Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx seems like it would fit perfectly in a deck filled to the brim with mana symbols. I currently don't own any, and I think I want to let then hit their basement price when they rotate before I invest in them. My only hesitation is the tax that playing them may place on my opening turns. I often will be playing two 1-drops on turn 2, Strangleroot Geist or Kalonian Tusker. Unfortunately, all three of these lines of play require .

That being said, I want to try it out before passing judgment on the card, so I'll be proxying some copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and seeing where that takes me. Thanks again :)

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx seems like a default card for this deck. I'd toss 2 in in place of a couple forests.

@Neko069: Thank you very much for the suggestions, and here's what I'm going to do:

  1. Since Hall of Triumph and Spear of Heliod are different cards, you can have them both on the field at the same time, so one won't just be dead in your hand if you have the other one on the battlefield.
  2. I know Astral Cornucopia is useless in this deck, and I've been looking for something to replace it with, so I took them out and added 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
  3. Since this deck is mostly based on tokens rather than creatures, I left out the Arashin Foremosts and the Dragon Hunters, but maybe I'll add them, I have to do some testing first. As for the Dragonscale General, it's pretty useless in this deck and it'll just be bolstering tokens which will probably die pretty fast. I'm not familiar with Sightless Brawler, so I'm leaving it out for now, but maybe I'll add it after I test it.
  4. Radiant Fountain's don't come in tapped, however they only add colorless mana and the two life isn't much, so I bumped two of them out and replaced it with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, sort of a mix with the replacement of Astral Cornucopia.
  5. I know Triplicate Spirits can be slow, but for three mana, three flyers can really pack a punch in this deck. However, I do like the idea of Pacifism, so I added 2 Banishing Light to the mainboard as well as two Pacifism from the leftover slots from the Radiant Fountains, and sided two of the Triplicate Spirits, just to see how it goes.

Thank you very much for the suggestions and please tell me how you feel about these edits.

Hi man! I don't really know how much would you like to spend to play, but this deck is lacking several things in my humble opinion.

  1. Both Spear of Heliod and Hall of Triumph are legendary. Yo don't have a way to cycle cards or draw more than 1 each turn, so when you have one of them in play, the other becomes a dead card in hand. 1 is just enough. Your deck shouldn't depend on them to win.
  2. Astral Cornucopia is totally useless in this deck.
  3. Include 4 Arashin Foremost and 2 more Dragon Hunter. I'm not so sure, but I'd give Dragonscale General and Sightless Brawler a try.
  4. What are Radiant Fountain for? You need to attack as fast as you can, a tapland won't do any good. And you shouldn't care abou yur own life, as you'll be hitting your opponent faster! Include Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx instead!
  5. Triplicate Spirits is very slow, despite its 'Convoke' ability. Use those slots to include removal spells, like Pacifism or Banishing Light. They also give Heliod, God of the Sun a boost in devotion.

Awesome help! I appreciate this a lot, and I'm sure my friend will. I have to leave the Nylea's Emissary because she loves cats lol. So I took two out for the two Mistcutter Hydra. I can't believe Arbor Elf slipped my mind too, so I took out two Voyaging Satyr. I'd have run a playset, but I love being able to untap Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for ignorant things with the Voyaging Satyr haha.
I think this will be the deck she'll go for, and if she loves it enough, we'll work in some of the other suggestions for sideboard. Thanks a ton, everybody!
