Nylea, God of the Hunt

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God


As long as your devotion to green is less than five, Nylea isn't a creature. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to green.)

Other creatures you control have trample.

: Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn.

I dunno, man. I'll tell you one thing - I really love Vorapede. I used to keep 1 in the deck (or sideboard, i forgot) when I first discovered it because it just seemed so good, but if you want an answer from my purely competitive standpoint I would say they just cost too much mana. The lower-cost creatures in the stompy deck are so good already at beating the opponent's face in, lol. Especially with all the help from the Rancor/Aspect/Vines etc. Then again, you just told me they have been working for you. If they are working for you in your specific play group /local meta then by all means, continue using them. One thing I would still recommend is to TRY replacing them for a more streamlined deck (4x the main creatures and like 1 or 2 flex 2-or-3 drops).

You could always try building a hybrid stompy/devotion style deck with mana dorks and all the good 3 drops (4x Leatherback Baloth , 4x Steel Leaf Champion -- possibly even Arbor Colossus , Rhonas the Indomitable and/or Nylea, God of the Hunt , Gigantosaurus , Verdurous Gearhulk and the brand new card Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi , etc etc etc.). And more than 1 Ghalta, Primal Hunger . It's a little awkward with only 4 elves as mana dorks, though... so you'd still wanna try and play some experiment ones or pelt collectors, I'd assume. But, I dunno. As I type this I feel more and more like this would just warrant going full Devotion and breaking from the earlier game plan with smaller creatures and more to playing cards like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Genesis Wave or that brand new card Finale of Devastation , etc...

  • But I'm rambling on again, heh. Short answer, no, I think Vorapede is too slow for a deck trying to, ideally, win before you're even able to cast it. But if it works for you then it's all good. Just at least try dropping them for a bit and see what happens. One card that Corbin played in his video that you may wanna try is Groundbreaker . I would play 1 of those about 50% of the time and I really like it. Only downside is drawing a hand with all the goodies but your only creature being the Groundbreaker to start...

As the Infect player in my playgroup I can appreciate your attempt at a difficult and disliked build.

Suggestions are Helm of the Host , Rite of Replication , if your playgroup allows it Evil Presents This is hilarious with Blightsteel Colossus in hand Cathars' Crusade , Nylea, God of the Hunt .

What is your meta like? It seems like you’re trying to fight control, but then I don’t understand the choice of running Nylea, God of the Hunt , because it doesn’t do much on an empty board, and Blanchwood Armor seems really bad in the control matchup, because it provides no card advantage and the enchanted creature is most likely just gonna get slaughtered, bringing you down two cards. You’re also only allowed four cards in a deck with the same name (sans basic lands); the fifth copy of Blanchwood Armor isn’t actually legal in the sideboard.

I can brainstorm with you on ways we could add blue. It just seems like you’re trying to dilute the idea of Mono-Green Stompy a tad bit too much, and I need an idea of what matchups you feel blue is needed for.

MagicalHacker three Theros gods: Purphoros, God of the Forge , Nylea, God of the Hunt , and Xenagos, God of Revels . The only thing is that they would need to print more Enchantresses that aren’t white to get the critical mass of about 8.

Buried Alive and Final Parting should go in. Ramos, Dragon Engine could be fun. Also more ramp would help a lot. Cultivate Kodama's Reach and Farseek can't be underestimated in 5 color. Even Coldsteel Heart could be helpful. The vivid lands, like Vivid Grove would be pretty helpful. Tarnished Citadel is another affordable option if you get it from the right seller.

I'd cut Animar, Soul of Elements Doomgape Diabolic Tutor (for final parting) Iroas, God of Victory Fusion Elemental Nylea, God of the Hunt Roil Elemental Cleansing Nova (you have enough board wipes)

Arkavine on Need Help getting Kruphix deck ...

Looking at it, first thing I would say is it does seem to be lacking some sort of theme besides X spells.

Cards I would personally cut

Rancor, Loxodon Warhammer, Haunted Cloak, Chariot of victory, Vorrac battlehorns- A lot of your creatures are going wide / benefits on that (Craterhoof, Hangarback, Hooded hydra kinda, Hydra broodmaster, gelatinis,verdeloth the ancient) over trampling over stuff. Having this many trample enablers is not going to be super great, cutting it down / removing them could help. Nylea, God of the Hunt could replace all of these and take use of your creature tutors.

Protean Hulk - Only can really grab hydra broodmaster, and pathbreaker ibex, seedborn muse or teferi with much effect, and you need to have a way to kill him as well. With the fact he is already 7 mana to put out, can be a dead card.

Basilisk Collar - The creatures you are playing with are going to be big enough for deathtouch to be less relevant, and lifelink is nice but at that point adding a card for lifelink isnt worth it Chariot of Victory, Haunted Cloak, Rancor

Leyline of lifeforce depending on meta - This stops you from countering your opponents creatures as well and considering you have a number of counters it could be a detriment

Vedalken Aethermage - Effect is VERY narrow, and wizardcycling only grabs teferi or trinket mage

Lifecraft Awakening - Most of the time you are going to want to put the mana towards something more impactful, this is essentially making a vanilla creature while making your artifact more vulnerable

Genesis Wave - Most of your creatures are base 0/0 creatures, and this kills them instead of putting them out. Aside from that, only a third of your deck is artifacts/creatures so only 1 in every 3 should in theory be something really useful

Wurmcalling - Normally this card is good if you are ramping hard because it gives you a mana dump every turn, but you are playing kruphix so you are usually going to want to save that mana up for something more impactful

Also, I see that cyclonic rift in your sideboard, if it isnt a cost issue, put it in. That card will win you so many games, and reduces your need for trample even more. dont need trample if they have no blockers
