Oath of Nissa Discussion


22 hours ago

Hi, let's try to help starting this discussion!

First, I'm having a difficult time understanding your payoffs here. Aethersquall Ancient may give you lots of headaches, like returning gearhulks to their owners hands. Possibly, you should think about two interesting payoffs: Dynavolt Tower and Torrential Gearhulk are staples in Temur and UR builds, should be on the list too.

I would go full set on Attune with Aether. It's a one drop, a filter and an energy source, can't go wrong with it.

Servant of the Conduit and Greenbelt Rampager are versatile options. Servant helps fixing the mana and crew Aethersphere Harvester. The Nellie the elephant is a very strong one drop, but demands you to pay for him to stay on board. But you can use it for crewing Aethersphere (or Heart of Kiran, if this sounds ok to you) crew a vehicle with it's trigger on the stack.

Since you have Greenbelt and Servant and you may play Dynavolt too, why not play Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Consulate Turret and Paradox Engine too? You may hit an infinite combo that could generate mana and energy! Fabrication Module could be interesting, but we are talking about a long, long game, something not so common in this meta. Even those 5 or 6th turn combos have very low probability...

Then, you need to dig this deck as fast as you can. Oath of Nissa, Anticipate and Glimmer of Genius are the main choices here, but you may go some Evolving Wilds too. Maybe not necessary with attunes, Aether Hub and Botanical Sanctum, though. Negate, Disallow, Horribly Awry and Void Shatter are (now) staples in more control builds.

Longtusk Cub remains an interesting two drop and Rogue Refiner a 3-drop.

Still, don't know what could really bring this deck out without a splash to black or red... Harnessed Lightning, Fatal Push, Incendiary Flow and To the Slaughter are powerful in this meta.

Would love to see this build taking shape in two colors!

Oath of Nissa would help with color fixing for getting the walker down.

Between Oath of Nissa, Fertile Ground and Utopia Sprawl, at 4 copies each, in a 60 card deck, you have about an 80% chance of having one in your opening hand, increasing to 85.25 if on the draw. Not bad odds by any means. That said, it might be worthwhile looking at adding a mana dork like Birds of Paradise or Sylvan Caryatid for extra mana fixing. Personally, I would take either of those over Sakura-Tribe Elder

TheRedGoat on Cards suggestions for Bant Turbo ...

If you want to "win with walkers" in a turbo fog then you sound like you're basically going to be running a control build that wins with a few good creatures.

Like Sphere of Safety and similar cards are going to be your best options for stopping attackers, and then also you'd want something to give you hexproof like Leyline of Sanctity. In between all that though you'll need the walker support, which is best had through the oaths like a turn one Oath of Nissa and a turn 2 Oath of Ajani. Also pretty much all the most recent versions of Ajani are amazing for a walker deck, even the starter one.

Also you may want to try and get to 23 lands, to keep up with casting walkers/ have land when you need it. Oath of Ajani and Oath of Nissa help a ton, but they are legendary enchants so only one of them out at a time.

Saw your deck on fb and have a few questions, but first love this idea! So why the Filigree Familiar and not Cloudblazer ? Is seams strong as you draw with the enter ability and would help Woodland Wanderer out by adding another color. Also why not Oath of Nissa over Traverse the Ulvenwald as you can blink it later?

Oh, I had not thought of adding red as third color.

I like Lone Rider  Flip more than Trusty Companion, so that's an easy trade, but I'm not looking to add more red to the deck. There is one mountain for Arlinn Kord  Flip in case I don't hit Oath of Nissa early.

Inventor's Apprentice is also a good idea; for awhile I ran Militant Inquisitor which does something similar, but I'm sticking to green/white for the deck.

In the side deck, I'm going to add either Fumigate or Planar Outburst. Planar works slightly better because of Sylvan Advocate, but we'll see.

Thanks for the ideas! I may change it in the future and add that red.

Do you find Oath of Gideon to be more beneficial than Oath of Nissa. I run both in my Superfriends deck and was just curious as to why you chose to leave Nissa out. Btw, huge fan of this deck, I have drawn a lot of inspiration from it!!
