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.

Nylea, God of the Hunt Discussion

Naksu on My snake deck (that title took me two weeks...)

If you're going with the Nemesis being your major wincon, I strongly suggest something like Primal Rage or Nylea, God of the Hunt for trample. And with your current setup the Hooded Hydra has stronger synergy with Seshiro and flooding the field with snakes. But I might be wrong or I'm just trying to build it to suit me. My 2 cents :)

The deck looks great! lots of mana ramp and some great creatures! For suggestions I would recommend putting in some cards that give Omnath unblockable or trample so that when omnath gets huge, it's a lot harder for people to stop him from killing people. Cards like Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, and Nylea, God of the Hunt would all add to this and make your deck much scarier! Also if you haven't yet you should put in Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger because he's a bomb that not only helps you ramp but slows down your opponents!

Nylea, God of the Hunt is the best card to give your creatures trample. Really good deck idea! It's really good. +1 Also since you put a YouTube video in your description, could you show me the code you used to do that?

Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland could make for some good excel and colorless mana if you need it.Mosswort Bridge is a great land, and having big creatures make is combo great.Magus of the Candelabra really really does do good in sir Clex right now, I don't see a good reason to ditch him or not much.- list text hereI notice you also took out Search for Tomorrow, and you only have one spell worth casting on turn one(Sol Ring would be good for this too).I think Explore would be really rather decent too, it's also card drawing, so worth thinking about.I also think having a few more lands would be really a good idea, I know you love your cards, but Animist's Awakening, and anything that adds land plays are only good with having land in your hand.Journey of Discovery is also one you had before I don't see now.Beast Within is probably some of the strongest removal out there, and I feel it is definitely better than Titan's Presence which while okay, is only good if you have your titans in your hand... where you'd rather they not be. Option is Song of the Dryads which(while a sorcery) can take out commanders or anything at all.Vedalken Orrery is in some ways better here than in Jin, because of how strong how safe it makes you.Now, those are some suggestions, let's do some take outs.I feel that Nylea, God of the Hunt really isn't the best you can you use for it, the trample is gotten from Akroma's Memorial and the pump is strong but there should be other options, and you have some pretty massive butts as it is. Another idea(that could be terrible), would be Ursapine. He is a little odd, but with a straight mana buff to your commander, I can easily see you one shotting people by attacking with him, and he already has trample. In addition, Pathbreaker Ibex and Overwhelming Stampede really can just win you the game, works similar.Courser of Kruphix is only really good if you have land in your hand... something that doesn't look like it will happen too much(maybe late game, but I feel you can have better actual excell).Rampaging Baloths... disappoints me... it should be so strong... but... meh, I don't even run it in Karametra. Regal Force is made stronger by the Baloths, but I don't think you need to depend on your green creatures. Another Soul's Majesty kinda card would give you more cards most of the time.Horn of Greed Just has to go.Defense of the Heart is really a great card, but I don't think you need it... at the same time I can't just say take it out.I agree about Garruk, Caller of Beasts.I think that should be a good dose of feedback. Any questions?

Sounds like you already have some things in mind, but some suggestions as far as creatures go: Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Inferno Titan, Bogardan Hellkite, Dragonlord Atarka, Greenwarden of Murasa, Wurmcoil Engine, Thragtusk, Tyrant's Familiar, Thunderfoot Baloth, Terastodon, Craterhoof Behemoth

Obvious choices here are also the gods: Purphoros, God of the Forge, Iroas, God of Victory, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Xenagos, God of Revels. Heck Karametra, God of Harvests may even have a place here.

Also possibly Omnath, Locus of Rage depending on how much of that land tutoring you plan on keeping. Feldon of the Third Path may also have a place here. A few of my suggestions have ETB or on-death effects, so depending on how many of those effects you end up with, he can be crazy powerful.

And sorry for so many suggestions, but once I got started I just kept thinking of more and more :P

Hey there! I also run a werewolf EDH deck and I think I have ideas that may help you based on my own experience. I see based on prior comments you're concerned with getting more reliable flips (my challenge too). Here's a few ideas that either deter spells from being played or help give your spells flash so you can spend your turn flipping:

Vedalken Orrery
Winding Canyons
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
Price of Glory
Yeva, Nature's Herald
Conqueror's Flail
Dosan the Falling Leaf
City of Solitude

Remember that werewolves are checking to see spells "cast" so finding spells that simply put things into play also helps flipping:

Selvala's Stampede
Garruk, Caller of Beasts
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Just a few general good cards that have been effective for me are:

Full Moon's Rise
Rishkar's Expertise
Lifecrafter's Bestiary
Descendants' Path
Xenagos, God of Revels
Nylea, God of the Hunt

Best of luck to you with your build! I like the token them you've developed.

definitely should consider Predator Ooze, Wolfir Avenger, Nylea, God of the Hunt and Avatar of the Resolute Good deck, very similar to a green modern one I have in quite a few regards. Good job! +1
