Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

That Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a beautiful card. I'll definitely try and find a way to work a couple of those in. Garruk Wildspeaker is a card I had actually ruled out in an earlier build, but with my newly discovered Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl combo, I can see it being much more useful now.

I will admit being less moved by the Genesis Wave idea, however I think it could be great to work in to a sideboard, as well as that Forked Bolt. Both inspire me to start looking into building a sideboard.

Thanks for the ideas, and for the luck!

Updated to include Collected Company and try some other cards - Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Copperhorn Scout, Talara's Battalion, etc.

It's pretty beastly! It recovers from removal quickly, produces ridiculous amounts of mana, and gets big, green, pointy-eared bastards swinging hard.

Creature-based ramp in Modern is often iffy at best, given that mana dorks are so easily two-for-one'd with staples like Electrolyze, Forked Bolt, etc. However, some incredibly fast ramp decks are able to run off Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl + Garruk Wildspeaker. I also have to recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx-- you'd be surprised how even mana dorks and rampchantments add up to huge devotion. As a finisher, consider something like Genesis Wave over Vorinclex. At least you can dump some lands into Borborygmos if you have to, but if Vorinclex gets removed by eot Murderous Cut/Terminate/Path to Exile/you get the idea, it's going to leave you tapped out and open. Good luck with the deck!

I feel like Hardened Scales doesn't do enough. It helps with your devotion, but otherwise it's just a single counter increase and I feel like you could do better with Solidarity of Heroes or maybe just a normal pump spell like Titanic Growth. I also agree about the Genesis Hydra and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx that was suggested.

I don't know if you plan on taking this to any tournaments, but it looks like Rooting Kavu isn't Modern legal.

I would definitely add 4x Lightning Bolt in here. It kills early threats, helps your guys push through for more damage, and gives you some extra reach.

Another card to consider is Rancor. You have lots of creatures, so finding one to enchant shouldn't be a problem. It doesn't leave you open for a 2-for-1, and it helps you push through for extra damage.

Burning-Tree Emissary might be nice here. You can cast a lot of threats from it's ETB, and it is really sweet with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, if you decide to go that route.

Other than that I think the deck looks sweet :)

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Garruk Wildspeaker would work nicely as well with Arbor Elf

I think he meand Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I personally never enjoy siding lands, even if they are like Twest where you probably don't want to use it as a land. not worth the spot.
