Oath of Nissa Discussion

CurdBrosBrewingCo on Garruk Green Devotion (w/ Combo)

Hey all...quick question...is Magus of the Moon better here than Blood Moon? Both Oath of Nissa and Garruk, Caller of Beasts can "dig/tutor" for Magus of the Moon....but it is so darn killable that I'm not sure...would love everyone's input.

I would honestly put Cloudstone Curio in the mainboard with all of the ETB effects you have. That is something that is probably worth multiple slots because of the strong synergy you have with it in the deck.

If you're looking for cards to take out for Cloudstone Curio I would recommend one Garruk, Caller of Beasts and Reverent Hunter. You have multiple Garruks so one less probably isn't a problem and Reverent Hunter just seems lackluster and unnecessary.

I second Scorprix's thought on Blood Moon. If Cloudstone Curio is in the deck, Oath of Nissa or Utopia Sprawl can bounce it when you need to use your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. You stall your opponent, but it doesn't effect you.

Scorprix - Pretty sure I'm not apart of it, but just to clarify, who is "yal"?

Dorotheus on Budget Grixis artifact control?

it sounds like you want to just play with a modern lower level in mind and not a competitive deck is that correct?

I have a friend that recently built a UB artifact control deck, and I helped him hone it a bit better, the deck could easily splash red if he wanted to or just SB Galvanic Blast in at any point, it does run 2 Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, but no deck is competitively capable, within reason of playing Nicol Bolas, expect for 1 deck. And that's a green based Tron deck centered around Oath of Nissa which probably costs a decent amount, and can upgrade, but not considered viable.

The reason I use Serum Powder over Oath of Nissa is that it can also ramp in a tight spot. My turn 1 is almost always Flamekin Harbinger followed by turn 2 dork, which makes oath take all the way until turn 3 before I can cast it. Although it doesn't look it, Flickerwisp is too much strain on the mana due to the double off color cost.

I have tried tyrant. It didn't work.

Shriekmaw misses on too many creatures right now to run 4 of. In a matchup where I need it, I effectively already have 5 copies due to harbinger. Hound of Griselbrand however has been an all star in this deck if the combo does not happen, creating value or being a 2 mana or being a 4/4 double striker almost every time.

Ingot Chewer is mainboard rather than sideboard, because, in the matches I need it, I need it in all 3 games to stand a chance. In addition, so many decks run targets for it that, while confusing at times, it is rarely a completely dead draw.

As for Nova Chaser, it's complicated, mainly because it has so many uses. I am in the process of writing a primer for the deck which will go into it in full detail.The main uses are

-Surprise! 11 damage

-reuse of etbs/trigger ltbs

-flash it in to protect something

-instantly turn on bridge, sometimes to give itself champion fodder

-evoke shenanigans

-championing warden so that it comes back ready for battle every time it dies.

The reason I do not run exemplar is mainly the cost. If I do not have soulstoke out it will be at least turn 5 before I can realistically cast it, whereas chaser is still a strong turn 3 play.

Cool deck.

I'd suggest Oath of Nissa to improve consistency over Serum Powder, it could provide even more value with Flickerwisp which can replace Ingot Chewer (is a SB card) and Torrent Elemental.

Have you considered Tyrant of Discord as a fatty to cheat out (maybe from the SB) ?
It can randomnly take out multiple permanents or just a land.

Since the deck lacks removal I'd max out on Shriekmaw and take out Hound of Griselbrand which is decent but not great.

Also, how do you usually use Nova Chaser ?
And why not Supreme Exemplar instead ?

Was originally Naya, but removed Green as it was only for Walker color fixing with Servant of the Conduit and Oath of Nissa. The only green speels outside of ramp/dig/fixing was 2 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Verdurous Gearhulk. It felt forced and had too many tapped upon entering lands.

How do you feel about the "Oath of" Cycle? Oath of Ajani, Oath of Nissa, Oath of Jace, Oath of Chandra, Oath of Gideon seem like they cold be pretty good in the deck. Listed in order of preference
