CheapCanadianrototype on Nikya'll Kikya

If I may, I would suggest putting in Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic to keep your curve down and help with the ramp as you try to fish for more lands early on. Borderland Ranger is another good budget option that can get you more lands early. Journey of Discovery is a fantastic sorcery for land ramp. Depending on your group's meta, Runic Armasaur might be another cheap option for card draw. I see you have some hydras lined up as possibilities, Mistcutter Hydra is a fantastic card against control decks that run blue and Savageborn Hydra will be absolutely titanic if it hits the field! Polukranos, World Eater is another fun hydra that fights opponents creatures when you make it monstrous.

I don't think you should discount having other enchantments either since Nikya tries to discourage that. Zendikar Resurgent has dipped in price and having good card draw on top of ramp can be a win-win.

It would be good for you to have some redundancy for making your creatures uncounterable. Prowling Serpopard and Spellbreaker Behemoth are both good options and Vexing Shusher if you want to spend extra. Adding something to give creatures haste from the get go is also nice to have outside of your Rhythm of the Wild. Anger is just a solid option at about 50 cents and Urabrask the Hidden does that and then some, too.

These are just some of my thoughts as a fellow G/R player. I honestly love Nikya and seeing someone putting a deck together is exciting! Hope some of the suggestions get you on the track you want, whether you take them or not.

hkhssweiss Vexing Shusher is a good card and a hidden gem, good call.

I don't run Boseiju, Who Shelters All cause I'm going to cast the spells without paying the mana cost anyway. It coming into play tapped actually makes me lose tempo.

As for Cavern of Souls , it is a tough call to exclude it. I do have a few friends playing counterspells but it ain't a big thing here in my meta.

Also, I value lands that produce colored mana over those that produce only colorless (I consider Cavern as producing colorless), especially since some of my spells have , or in their casting cost.

Cloudius Same here I run that package, with the exception of Misdirection , as well as Boseiju, Who Shelters All , Vexing Shusher , and most cheap efficient counters.

I'm curious, is there a reason why you don't run Cavern of Souls or is control not really an issue in your meta?

You need to play cards that punish control players. Ruric Thar is a good example. Also cards that protect you against counter spells like Vexing Shusher . Cards that increase cost of spells like Sphere of Resistance , Defense Grid , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thorn of Amethyst .

More nasty cards against control: Dragonlord Dromoka , Plow Under , Citadel of Pain , Price of Glory , Gaddock Teeg , Grand Abolisher , Conqueror's Flail , Aurelia's Fury , Silence

And if you really wanna watch control player cry: Bazaar Trader + any permanent that doesnt let your opponent cast noncreature spells like Nikya of the Old Ways .

As you can see I know alot of anti control cards. That's because my playgroup is ridden with filthy control players. We're good friends but they just love to play some sort of control.

I would just go ahead and lose the 7 non-permanents, entirely. Vexing Shusher can replace Red Elemental Blast as anti-counterspell tech. You already have a ton of artifact and enchantment hate, so Krosan Grip and By Force aren't necessary. Burnished Hart , Dawntreader Elk , Oashra Cultivator and Elvish Rejuvenator are all creature options to replace Cultivate and Kodama's Reach . Elemental Bond , Guardian Project (from the new set), Garruk's Packleader , and Regal Force would all be suitable replacements for Rishkar's Expertise and Shamanic Revelation .

Sorry if I missed this from previous comments but what are your thoughts on Grand Abolisher or Vexing Shusher to add more protection?

if I see a lot of blue in my meta on a given day, I have a Vexing Shusher I put in for Shaman of Forgotten Ways to deal with counters.

Haha same here dude!

I love using cards that people never even heard of before! I remember the time where I was about to go combo off with my Intet deck and seeing no blue in the pod I discarded my Vexing Shusher not thinking of needing any protection and WHAM! I got countered by a Warping Wail....I was so shocked and my reaction is forever know at my LGS on that day LOL
