Nylea's Colossus Discussion
1 week ago
There are some sweet just overall cool cards in this deck, as of right now my understanding is that, cast tons of enchantments, use Tusava as a draw engine, and just win by the enchantments themselves. Removal and responses are a necessity in every deck, and you seem to have more than you need, considering this is an enchantment deck. I suggest cutting almost all the counterspells except one, according to your choice. As said above interaction is must in almost every EDH deck, yet you have exessivly to many of them. I would also cut some removal, if you were to have removal, I would put in a form of enchantments, such as Darksteel Mutation , which you have, or Deep Freeze or something of that sort, even though the instant speed of instant card are always nice, I feel like enchantments in forms of removal would be better. Next considerable enchantments to cut. I would cut the theft enchantments, considering how much people hate gettijg their stuff stolen, and also I think you should use most enchantments to benefit yourselves, just an opinion, considering who you play with or your meta. Sheltered Aerie and Wild Growth are not good, even if they are enchantments. They could be easily cut, or replaced by better cards. Same goes for Dawn's Reflection , or Fertile Ground , If you like, I would keep about a third of the "Land" enchantments that tap for extra mana, and add some other form of ramp such as Birds of Paradise . As for the creatures, Nylea's Colossus CMC is quite high, and overall I think should be cut.

I don't like Phyrexian Rebirth , Martial Coup , Bant Charm , and honestly most of your creature base. Shalai, Voice of Plenty Nylea's Colossus Archetype of Courage Loyal Guardian Celestial Ancient and Yavimaya Enchantress seem pretty bad in particular. I dont understand the +1/+1 theme you have here, you only have 20 creatures.
I would add Crush Contraband and or Return to Dust . Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares are also no brainers. Three Dreams is another solid one, it can search for pumps like Eldrazi Conscription and even pseudo-removal like Control Magic or Faith's Fetters

My wincons for the deck are Estrid, the Masked enchanting The Chain Veil with at least 4 mana from enchanted sources out to get infinite mana, drawing enough of the deck to find Elspeth, Sun's Champion and making a ton of tokens with her and getting her emblem.
Alternatively, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Toothy, Imaginary Friend comboing with Nylea's Colossus , especially with Open the Vaults (Honestly, even Sun Titan with Nylea's Colossus would work. The specific creature isn't that important.) I should probably stuff Laboratory Maniac in here, too just in case something happens to my creatures and other planeswalkers.

Not sure if you're still looking for some help but I saw a comment from you asking for recommendations on this deck. If you're still going with the idea of Voltron I'd personally cut cards like Cold-Eyed Selkie , Dreampod Druid , Giltspire Avenger , Nylea's Colossus , Qasali Pridemage , and Whitewater Naiads . Everything but the Druid and Colossus don't have synergy/good enough synergy with enchantments in my opinion and could be replaced with stronger enchantments or auras. Other creatures that I think could go are Kestia, the Cultivator and Kitsune Mystic . Kestia because with a voltron gameplan you aren't going to be going wide and you even have cards that make it so you only want to attack with one creature so 6 mana to Bestow just for +4/+4 and one cards a turn isn't worth it in my opinion. The Mystic while nice probably won't do much since you want just about everything on Tuvasa so moving auras around doesn't help you out.
For non-creature spells the board-wipes, Phyrexian Rebirth and Winds of Rath could be replaced with spot removal or counterspells but I'd say this is personal preference. Last cut I'd say would be Aura Shards because while it is a good card if you take the recommendations to cut down on creatures you probably won't trigger it very often so a strong aura or other enchantment will do more for you.
Other than that all I can say is you might want to try out Open the Vaults for if you get milled or Tuvasa dies while a ton of auras are on her. I also want to make it clear this is my opinion and I'm not some competitive Tuvasa player. These were just my ideas of how to make the deck into more of a voltron deck like the comment I saw said the deck was.

I like the overall idea of the deck, in fact I currently work on kind of a similar idea. Kitsune Mystic is a really sweet addition indeed since not only you can basically use it for moving around hexproof\shroud, but also for moving combat enchantments mid-combat on an unblocked creature, basically turning it into a 1-mana combat trick. However, I`d like to give couple of improvement suggestions.
1) The mana base is only 33 cards, which is extremely low. Such a scarcity of lands should have a solid reasoning, like a really solid one, for instance a ramp on the stick in form of the commander. The average agreed-upon amount is 37-38, and I do not see why this deck should be an exclusion.
2) Following up the mana base argument, I would suggest working on a ramp package, which is basically non-existing in a current version of the deck, and those cards that do ramp you are either conditional (like One with Nature ) or sub-par ( Utopia Vow ). Kestia is in , so not running ramp is a crime against humanity. I would include at least 7 more ramp cards, especially 2-mana ones, like Rampant Growth , Sakura-Tribe Elder and Farseek . Ramp and better mana base provide much more consistency, and this deck is already very good with draw, so it just needs to have better chances to play the cards it has drawn. Also, just put Sol Ring in there. You would never regret it. It`s just too good.
3) The deck is overkill on creatures and enchantments. Now if the enchantments are not that much for a problem since the whole deck is built around them, and usually a deck should have around 30 cards of which it is themed around, the amount of creatures can be decreased. Now which of these should be cut is completely up to you, but in my opinion: - most of the bestow creatures are not as effective as you would want them to be. Most of them are either just sub-par cards ( Boon Satyr ) or just overpriced copies of enchantments that you already have in the deck (i. e. Hopeful Eidolon Ghostblade Eidolon Hypnotic Siren ); - Nylea's Colossus , although being a really sweet card, seems unreliable. 7 mana in a deck with virtually no ramp is just so far into the future, and you have to spend your whole turn to cast it. Plus, you already have a lot of enchantments, so pumping a dude to lethal numbers should be pretty easy already; - Celestial Ancient seems to lack synergy with the deck as a whole. I can see only 3 token producers and a Starfield of Nyx , which, by the way, is also a controversial inclusion since many enchantments in the deck are auras.
4) I would also try and squeeze in more unconditional removal. I see you have most of your removal in form of Pacifism type enchantments, that have better synergy with enchantresses, however I would argue that since you have so many enchantress type effects and enchantments in general that those cards can be swapped for more reliable and consistent removal like SWORDS TO PLOWSHARES Path to Exile and Return to dust. Also I`d also include couple more board wipes because they are basically your safety nets if you fall behind in the game. One sweet thing you can actually do is to include Calming Verse , Aura Thief and Cleansing Meditation , cast one of these along with Enchanted Evening and basically watch your opponents scoop as they lose all their stuff.
I have a lot more tunings to suggest, but they become much too subjective from here, so yeah, there you go.

Matrixxx999 Hey, thanks! The reason I'm using Calming Verse instead of Cleansing Meditation is mostly about safety. Meditation is cheaper, but Threshold checks on resolution, not on cast. So someone might be able to exile my graveyard in response, whereas with Verse, if someone tried to untap my land, I could just tap it again.
The other reason is colour balance. 1WW is more restrictive than 3G, especially considering that I already have a lot of white costs in the deck. Verse allowed me to spread my mana around a bit more, allowing me more plays per turn. Also, in my deck, the only cards that really benefit from enchantments entering the battlefield (instead of them being cast) are Nylea's Colossus and Estrid's Invocation, both of which don't do a whole lot without Haste or other enchantments already present. In a W/B shell like Zur or something, I think Meditation might be superior to Verse. In this case, I prefer spending one extra mana for the added safety and less pressure on my coloured mana.
(I did try Meditation at first though, before I found Verse, and it worked basically fine. So it's a good suggestion, thanks!)
