Starfield of Nyx


At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return target enchantment card from your graveyard to the battlefield.

As long as you control five or more enchantments, each other non-Aura enchant you control is a creature in addition to its other types and has base power and toughness each equal to its converted mana cost.

Starfield of Nyx Discussion

Reverie42 on Daxos - Enchantments

2 days ago

I built a very different Daxos, so it was cool to see this list. I think Celestial Dawn and Archetype of Finality are pretty neat additions.

A few things that might be non-ideal:Starfield of Nyx is really risky in Daxos. If it ever activates, all of your spirit tokens die immediately. This is because they get their normal P/T as a characteristic definition ability in layer 7a, then have it modified to 0/0 as a power/toughness setting ability in layer 7b.

You might consider trimming some number of the buff auras for more utility enchantments. I've found that being a cheap source of experience counters is frequently just not good enough on an aura. I really like Rule of Law and Eidolon of Rhetoric since they give you more room to sink mana in to generating spirits without falling behind. Some combination of Cathars' Crusade, True Conviction and Intangible Virtue can also be pretty good.

I see you have Cage of Hands. In a similar vain, you might consider Flickering Ward. That combined with Doomwake Giant is really strong. Add in Celestial Dawn and it's probably going to be hard for your opponents to play creatures. It's a bit of a nonbo with Rule of Law, but in most cases, if everyone is only casting one spell a turn, you're already pretty happy.

Skybind might also be worth considering. You've got a couple flicker effects and Daxos lets get Skybind triggers at instant speed to blink out scary attackers.

I learned about a few neat cards from this list. Thanks :)

Starfield of Nyx is absolutely a good card in this deck; it was the original finisher before I got Luminarch Ascensions. I took it out for a few reasons:

  • Ghostly Prison is probably the best card in the deck, and Starfield suddenly makes them vulnerable to Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push, not to mention board wipes.

  • Luminarch Ascension is a great mana sink, and I often find that I have extra mana on my hands that I can spend a lot more effectively with the Ascension.

  • The Ascension also costs only 2 mana, so it comes down early and allows me to spend mana more efficiently later on.

That being said, Starfield definitely has its uses. I think the real reason I took it out is because it's too swingy. When it's good, it's fantastic, but when it's bad, it's absolutely terrible. I could probably fit a couple copies into the sideboard, though, maybe in place of Nyx-Fleece Rams. Thanks for the feedback!

Hi Gadianten,

Thank you for commenting :) Concerning Concealed Courtyard, I don't really like the 'enters tapped unless you control 2 or fewer lands' thing. This means that unless this card happens to be in my opening hand, it'll enter tapped anyway. Now you might be thinking that's still better than the absolute guarantee that Forsaken Sanctuary enters tapped (and you'd be right), but it's just not worth 5 euros to me.

Eldrazi Monument could work very well in this deck, considering that I have multiple ways of creating tokens (including my commander) to keep the evilness alive :) I'll give some thought to what I'd replace for it.

Don't believe for a minute that I haven't drooled over Serra's Sanctum for long periods of time. It would rule in this deck. But the price, it's just brutal. Where I come from, I wouldn't be able to get one under 50 euros. Maybe some day I'll be able to trade for one, but until that time I'll just keep on dreaming.

I see what you're getting at with Starfield of Nyx and this card actually used to be in this deck. I rewmoved it because of one fatal flaw in it; creatures are a lot easier to remove from the field than enchantments. I found that out several times, the hard way.

You're partly right about Angelic Accord. There are only five ways for me to gain life in this deck. However, I often end up tutoring for one of these; especially when my pillowfort enchantments are already on the field. I'll give this one some more thought.

Thanks again, much appreciated.

I have been wanting to make a deck like this for awhile and definitely like where you are taking it.

With that in mind I have a few of recommendations, replace Forsaken Sanctuary with Concealed Courtyard and if you are having trouble with saving your tokens from board-wipes try Eldrazi Monument, and a commander upkeep cost of for flying, indestructible and +1/+1 you really can't go wrong. Price may be an issue but if you are able you may want to replacing New Benalia with Serra's Sanctum, the land seems practically custom made for your commander. Also, try replacing Angelic Accord with Starfield of Nyx, its essentially a Debtors' Knell for enchantments and you don't quite seem to have the life gain to take full advantage of Angelic Accord.

Cool deck! For ramp/deck filtering, I would add Abundance. Also, Open the Vaults is extremely powerful and can be used as a win-con. Another possible win-con is Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx.

I have considered it, both Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence, but the main issue is that they kill the Daxos tokens when they're online and those tokens are most of the time to valuable in my local meta to do away with.

Have you considered Starfield of Nyx? It gives your enchantments some recursion and also makes them A bit scarier.

Ok this is a strange deck. it s really political and difficult to be play.The strategy of the deck is to put pieces which slows my opponents and build with the enchantment a wall of protection on myself, after that I Have all time for defeat my opponents in different way playing creatures like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for example or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite too. In other case I could steal or copy my opponents resources with Bribery or cards like Progenitor Mimictoo. Rhonas the Indomitable is very dangerous with the number of mana I could have in this deck and sometimes with my General I Could win by Voltron.Starfield of Nyx the main reason which I play that card is to "Reanimate" my enchantments over and over again and with Defense of the Heart it makes funny tricks.I had to think on the change of Lotus the only reasons which I haven't change it yet it s because when you do Lotus I don t go tappedout but I know Geoscope fixing better the mana then Lotus.
