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'd remove the Raptor Hatchling as long as you you have no way to stack damage triggers or something. It just doesn't have real impact in EDH.

Same goes for Arlinn Kord  Flip. I'd rather play other, more consistent ways of giving your commander (and other creatures) haste like Fires of Yavimaya or other enchantments that give your creatures haste and trample.

I'd also remove the monuments, they won't help you so much. For example Oketra's Monuments second effect won't impact the game much, and you have like 10 white creatures that can profit from the cost reduction. You'd have to play all of them after the monument to save like 7 mana. If you just play Kodama's Reach you will profit a lot more of it. Instead of Hazoret's I'd play anything that lets you draw a card whenever you play a creature, something like Elemental Bond. Rhona's is fine, you have enough green creatures, I personally would prefer something like Primal Rage or Nylea, God of the Hunt to keep the trample even without casting creatures.

Also I recommend Caltrops for the enrage trigger, if the lack of flavor doesn't matter to you.

Hey GrimVeracity, thanks for the suggestions. I will detail my thoughts about the cards below:

Vines of Vastwood / Blossoming Defense - These are both cards that I have considered before, I decided on 3x of Vines of the Vastwood in the sideboard. One thing I've realized about this deck is that you shouldn't be afraid of single target removal, simply because of how many threats I can play and how quickly I can ramp my mana, so I am wary of putting too many cards into the list that only 1 for 1 removal. One issue i've run into vs control while trying to play these 1 mana hexproof cards is that they can then put a counterspell on the stack after you play your card, and your creature ends up getting removed anyways. Even still I think there can be value in protecting or buffing our creatures so i think 3x in the sideboard is good.

Asceticism is another card I have heavily considered just because it protects against alot of stuff. Even thought I can have large amounts of mana to spend, the mana cost to benefit ratio for this deck is pretty low. Instead of paying 5 mana for an enchantment, I can play Heroic Intervention for 3 less mana, and it also grants indestructible. The regenerate part usually doesnt seem relevant, and theres lots of enchantment removal in modern already anyways so it can often be a 5 mana do-nothing card.

Nylea, God of the Hunt is interesting, but outside of her being a 6/6 for 4, the trample effect doesnt always seem like its going to matter very much, and i have Craterhoof Behemoth as a finisher in order to give everything trample.

Rhonas the Indomitable is something I am going to strongly consider for this deck. It isn't too hard to get creatures out with 4 or more attack with my deck and his body is really nice for a 3 drop, which in my deck will often be a turn 2 play. It does worry me that he can potentially be a dead card on the board if i don't have an activator.

thanks for the suggestions!

First off cool deck I like the idea of Arbor Elfs untapping Utopia Sprawls and then just keeping all of the leftover mana with Omnath, Locus of Mana all awesome cards but anyways... The one thing that has always scared me in MTG is playing a fat creature and then having it get spotted down quickly by an instant like Path to Exile before it even had a chance to attack. May I suggest some hexproof like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense cheap yet effective cards that can also pump your boys up at instant speed.. you could even dodge a Dismember on some of your smaller guys with Vines of Vastwood and then swing with the +4 +4 if you kicked it. Since I can see no shortage of manna here you might even consider something like Asceticism to regenerate a bigger creature about to face a sweeper. Lastly I couldn't quite say how these may fit in but some cool cards I like in green stompy are the gods Nylea, God of the Hunt and Rhonas the Indomitable I would say that you could probably support these guys with the type of deck your going for.

Rhonas the Indomitable or Nylea, God of the Hunt and a great mana producer such as Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can give Pallaida-Mors a power boost. Add Staff of Domination or Umbral Mantle and equip to Selvala for infinite green mana for infinite power pump or mana of any colors for other cards.

With so many lands sacrificing themselves, Titania, Protector of Argoth, will make an army. If she eats removal immediately she at least snagged a fetch back to hand for 2 more Tatyova triggers.

You have a few big guys, but Overwhelming Stampede and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa are good pumps to make your board lethal. Nylea, God of the Hunt and Thassa, God of the Sea give evasion plus a mana dump as well.

I do not see much if any graveyard hate, Scavenger Grounds and Relic of Progenitus are my go to choices.
