Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice Ordeal of Nylea.

When you sacrifice Ordeal of Nylea, search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

Ordeal of Nylea Discussion

JuQ on 4 Color Counters

1 week ago

Journey to Eternity  Flip would work great as you need your creatures to die to trigger the commander. Also some sac outlets and more card draw Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Life's Legacy. The take part of Give / Take can also be a powerful drawing utility in this deck. Don't waste your card slots with black card draw when you have blue and green that can do it better.
Bloodspore Thrinax for a second Master Biomancer.
Path of Discovery and Cathars' Crusade also great counters producers.
Animation Module and Mycoloth for extra synergy with the counters.
Hadana's Climb  Flip, Ordeal of Nylea and Ordeal of Thassa can also work great on this kind of decks, you get a counter and reap the profits right away.

JuQ on Marath Commander of the Wild

3 weeks ago

Need more card draw, a lot more:
Wirewood Savage, Elemental Bond, Mouth / Feed, Shamanic Revelation, Inspiring Call, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Hunter's Prowess, Hunter's Insight, Rishkar's Expertise. There are many on the same theme you can chose among. I usually try to fit at least 8 card draw spells.

Sheltering Word over Predator's Rapport?

Illusionist's Bracers Perfect for Marath.

The other Omnath, Omnath, Locus of Rage comboes nicely with Marath as he can pop 1/1 elementals that will that will trigger 3 points of damage when they die.

Kindred Summons over Selvala's Stampede players will vote "free" anyway...

Forgotten Ancient to recharge Marath with counters, or anyone else.

Ordeal of Nylea enchant Marath and ramp two lands that very same turn.

JuQ on Jenara Mk. 2

3 weeks ago

Hardened Scales feels like an auto include in a Jenara deck, specially if its a enchant deck.
Verduran Enchantress is sad because she wasn't invited to the party.
Having two cards to sacrifice enchantments you could use Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea to trigger them as soon as they get to the battlefield. Or placed in Jenara they can also be triggered on the same turn you casted them if she had two counters on her already.

I've always wanted to build a Skullbriar deck, and I love counters! You want suggestions? I got suggestions!

For starters, 34 lands is a little low I think, so here's some ramp spells that play into your theme: Ordeal of Nylea, Map the Wastes, and New Horizons . Also Path of Discovery, which isn't exactly ramp but is sweet all the same.

Want more counters? Nissa, Voice of Zendikar will put one on all your dudes! And she's not a $20 card any more, or even close to it. How about some more Auras? Check out Sadistic Glee and Shape of the Wiitigo. Gigantiform gives Skullbriar +7/+7 and trample, no matter how many counters are on him. Or maybe you'd like to use Fallen Ideal to just fly over the blockers instead of crashing through them.

You have a lot of non-standard cards. Halimar Depths, Ordeal of Nylea, Talrand, Triton Tactics, and Yavimaya Coast. You need 4 Merfolk Mistbinder

felletje on Azusa: ultimate tree domination plan

5 months ago

I have azusa to play extra lands, and the deck likes to draw cards using huge creatures to do so. Rites does what i want for my game yeah but i dont think it does enough :<. Its superfun though.

The animists awakening looks great! Its probably gonna replace Boundless Realms. Hits every land and probably untaps em too.

As a side note. You only wanna ramp if your board actually develops because of it. Thats why I play things like Sword of the Animist and Ordeal of Nylea. Ramping for the only reason to get more mana the next upkeep actually tremendously hinders the deck.

AkaAkuma on Jenara Rising With Ones

Ordeal of Nylea would mostly mean place one counter and put two basic land in play.

I think this general could need Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Prime Speaker Zegana also.

PietroS88 on GB +1 counter

6 months ago

Guy_Sensei Agreed! Any suggestion? Ordeal of Nylea provides a good land bonus but requires a bit of setup so I've been looking at Farseek instead. Maybe 2 and 2?
