Nyx-Fleece Ram Discussion

ZendikariWol on the Teferi Way

1 week ago

I cannot foresee a single scenario where Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is not much better than Dovin, Architect of Law . I'm assuming you're using him mostly for the life gain? You'd be better with a Nyx-Fleece Ram . Super underrated card: it dies to black removal, but against burn this thing is a monster.

Maybe try Nyx-Fleece Ram, Orzhov Basilica, Staff of the Death Magus, Staff of the Sun Magus, Soulmender, Sungrace Pegasus, or Serene Steward

Using Serene Steward you can trigger its mana ability to buff every time you gain life. I use Athreos, God of Passage in my Orzhov deck as my commander

Most of these aren't standard legal but if you're just playing casually or looking for a commander deck

halla on Who doesn't love drawing cards?

Hi CaptSillva, thanks for your comment! With the two creature tutors, I have effectively 10 creatures, which is pretty low, but I've tried to tailor them to what the deck really needs. From playing with this deck, I typically have enough pillow fort or interaction for problem creatures that I don't get beat down too hard early on. Courser of Kruphix is great source of card advantage though, and I always forget that it's an enchantment creature. I'll try to find room for it somewhere!

Hypnotic Siren, Kestia, the Cultivator, and Kruphix, God of Horizons seem a bit too high CMC for their effects IMO. Nyx-Fleece Ram is cheap and a good blocker, but I think in this deck, I would generally rather run a good interaction enchantment (like Prison Term or Darksteel Mutation) over the Ram because enchantments are overall less likely to be removed than creatures. At least that's my thought right now, what do you think?

I've had Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence in the deck before, but they've felt like more of a liability in most situations. If I play them to improve my board state and don't win on the spot, most times a board wipe will come down and destroy my whole game plan. They are pretty potent as a win condition, but I feel like the Enchanted Evening combos are a bit less fragile and easier to pull off.

I feel like this deck could use a few more bodies on the ground. Maybe you could consider these Hypnotic Siren, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Courser of Kruphix, Kestia, the Cultivator, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Starfield of Nyx, and Opalescence.

TheWrongBunny on Frustrating Lifegain Crap (PLEASE HELP ME)

4 months ago

Sorry to hear you are getting frustrated with this. i would personally say there is not enough consistent life gain. creatures like Nyx-Fleece Ram give you nice early game defense and consistent life gain. and for combat tricks with a bit of life gain i like Riot Control

Feel free to have a look through my life gain deck: Ajani's lifeforce (budget) (note it is completely make from my spare cards but it serves me very well)

Ramsey, of the Nyx-Fleece

Legendary Enchantment Creature - Sheep 0/5

Whenever you gain 1 or more life, you may put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control and all creatures that share a creature type with it.

At the beginning of your upkeep, gain 1 life.

"He has a quality that is greater than the gods, he has empathy for us mortals." -Kyre, Disciple of Kruphix

I just really like Nyx-Fleece Ram, and am very disappointed that's it's the only good sheep in the game. Rustspore Ram and Ovinomancer aren't playable, and Ovinize doesn't specifically turn it into a sheep.

Please create a sheep, legendary or not, that is NOT a sheep lord or a sheep tribal card. Just draw me a sheep, let's say.

The black version of Nyx-Fleece Ram.

Underworld Ram

Enchantment Creature - Zombie Sheep

At the beginning of your upkeep you lose 1 life.

: Target opponent gains control of Underworld Ram.


Make a Commander that is somehow able to invade someone else's Command Zone. That is to say, a Commander who has some sort of ability that lets them go to an empty Command Zone, thereby preventing that player's Commander from re-entering the zone until it is empty once again.

Should be an interesting way to mess with people.

Bonus points if you can also somehow force an opponent's Commander out of their zone. Probably through some sort of activated ability.

Personally, to me that sounds like a job for Esper but you can do whatever color pattern you desire.
