Ordeal of Nylea Discussion

nmonett1 on Grand Warlord Radha EDH

Hey elfric so I wanted to use a cheap commander that I can cast 4-5 times from the command zone if necessary, so that is why I chose Radha. If you were building the deck from my first draft, would you make the deck more about the creatures or more about the burn (if I felt inclined to keep Radha). I know a bunch of cards that I could put in for both sides. I was thinking about adding in maybe an Early Harvest, Soulbright Flamekin, and maybe Ordeal of Nylea. (do you think those are good ideas instead of burn spells?)

I'm not too sure about cocoon, but maybe Ordeal of Nylea and Hardened Scales would work.

What about aggro saprolings? Like using cards like Sprout, Ordeal of Nylea, and Mycoloth are really good in the same deck. My version of modern saprolings is like this. Heres the link - Modern Saprolings

consider rebound spells like Emerge Unscathed and Distortion Strike...ordeal auras are sweet too like Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea...... idk what the deal is with you Commander.... would you consider an alternate 5 color commander like Maelstrom Archangel just to at least have some kinda benefit/synergy?

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

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

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.
