Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to green is less than five, Nylea isn't a creature.
Creature spells you cast cost less to cast.

Nylea, Keen-Eyed Discussion
5 days ago
Hey thanks for commenting y'all! I recently played with this deck and noticed that it was very slow to start, i'm guessing my land count and mana curve are coming back to bite me haha.
carlmoores i wasn't feeling them but now i have a slightly better understanding of the game, are there any that you recommend?
golgarigirl all my ramp cards made it more green than black but i like both. I believe I have Moldervine Reclamation, Golgari Charm, and Murder somewhere so i'll definitely add them! I also added Nylea, Keen-Eyed for less expensive creatures lol. I'll definitely look into getting Overwhelming Stampede as well, Timberwatch Elf helps me especially if someone else is running elves too. Do you know any cards that can protect my enchantments, especially Conspiracy and Liliana's Contract? Since it's my secondary win con and all that haha

Nylea, Keen-Eyed is cheaper than I thought, so much so, she could go in this deck right? its less than 5 bucks after all.

Nylea, Keen-Eyed seems rather underpowered in the deck. Arasta of the Endless Web is really more of a sideboard card, and has to fight for even that. Speaking of sideboards, this one isn't that well prepared for the meta.
I really feel you could add a second color (probably white) and increase the power-level of this deck by a ton. Flicker of Fate, Alseid of Life's Bounty, Banishing Light and Elspeth Conquers Death, all of these are great cards in white that support the archetype, and are all cheaper than Nylea, Keen-Eyed. Definitely worth even spending a few extra bucks to have all of in the deck.

InutilisVisEst: Definitely, I'm just stuck on a couple changes on the budgetless version. I also want to make sure that any changes made are not theoretical and actually have some testing put into them.
The above cards are being heavily considered, while some cost-intensive cards will be coming out in the foreseeable future for the sake of lessening the overall price of the deck. Thank you very much for keeping up with the deck and I am sorry I haven't been as quick to update as I'd like. As soon I have a solid update for the main one, you can expect an update on here shortly after.

I like the enchantment base of the deck, so beasty and Nissa will have to sit this one out. I do like Dryad, and I pulled one at the pre-release, but how many would you run? I am thinking of taking out two of Nyx Herald and putting in two Dryads. If I were to take the other two out, I'd replace the other two with one copy of Nylea, Keen-Eyed and one copy of Arasta of the Endless Web. Does that sound good?

So, some suggestions. There were a lot of decent-good enchantments printed and your commander loves em. That ultimate has the potential to make this deck super resilient and you can just pound out the wins by out valueing opponents.

Thanks for another comment on this deck. I will try and remember to post on your Pioneer Angels deck, just as a token of my appreciation for how much you've helped me with this deck. I also see that you have a Rienne deck (although mine has more multicoloured synergies), great minds think alike ;).
For your card draw suggestions, I think that Keeper of Fables or Colossal Majesty are my best options because Keeper of Fables can draw me lots of cards when I'm in a good situation, and Colossal Majesty can help me when I'm in a worse position, perhaps leaving my guys back to block.
I didn't like Bishop of Wings in my old deck because I felt that he was either a win-more card or did nothing. I am going to try out Gisela, the Broken Blade, but my only concern is Wizard's Lightning, as most of the aggro decks at my LGS have a lot of Wizards, so I'll have to try and figure out how to deal with that. Bruna is definitely in the conversation, but my curve is probably a little bit too high already, so I'll have to figure that out.
I really like Heroic Intervention and Unbreakable Formation, so I'll have to test both. I'm not a big fan of Selfless Spirit because people can just kill it and I'd rather be playing big Angels anyway.
I like Shalai, Voice of Plenty due to her hexproof giving ability (as it stops burn spells and kills spells) and mana sink ability (in case I have nothing to do). You're probably right about Thalia, Heretic Cathar, so I'll take out a Thalia and some other things for some Gisela.
I think that the Heliod, Sun-Crowned investment is worth it, he'll probably add so much to the deck, so I'll cut Nylea for him.
Also, now that I think about it, what are your thoughts on Stasis Snare versus Banishing Light? I think I agree with you now about taking out Cast Out I've rarely flashed it in and only cycled it a few times.
Finally, what are your thoughts on the changes that I've listed below?
Thanks again, your suggestions have really helped both of my Pioneer decks,

Thanks for your continued help and feedback on my two Pioneer decks, I really appreciate it. I also apologize for the late response, this is my first week in a new school. Yea I think I've found a better angle on my original deck, making it two colours definitely feels more consistent and better against my bad matchups.
You're right in saying that I should split Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic, so I'll do that. I chose Nylea, Keen-Eyed and Ripjaw Raptor over the Heliod-Balista combo because the latter is pretty expensive and I think that Ripjaw Raptor will really help my aggro matchup. Even though I know that Nylea won't be a creature most of the time, I still think she's worth it, due to her activated as well as her passive. In her place, however, I could add in something like Gisela, the Broken Blade, Rhonas the Indomitable, or Verdurous Gearhulk. I could even take out Board the Weatherlight and add in some of these, which is what I'll think I'll do. I like Cast Out because it allows me to cycle it, as well as having flash.
I like Sunpetal Grove because if I don't have a land in hand, I can play it without it coming in untapped. But you might be right in saying that I'll probably need Fortified Village so I'll test it out. I've talked about Sylvan Caryatid before and I think I agree with you now, so I'll add it to my next order.
