Wistful Selkie Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion Thorbogl, I have not considered Wistful Selkie but now that you mention it I think it would fit perfectly into this deck, giving me 3 devotion for each color on a 3 drop. I am a bit confused though, are you suggesting that I drop Kefnet the Mindful for the Selkies? I can see the appeal to do this, more devotion for only one of the gods, but Kefnet will be really easy to active with this deck and his ability to bring back a land can be crazy good with Arbor Elf + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . I will definitely consider putting Wistful Selkie in this deck, probably as a replacement for Void Grafter.

Blue_Flame, I really appreciate the offer for my sideboard, I could actually use some tips from someone more experienced. I am still pretty new to modern and don't know what I should but in my sideboard for different match ups. I was probably thinking more counter spells like Spell Snare and Negate or Mana Leak for the side board. I'm not that worried about creature removal, because gods are indestructible and can chump really easily, but there could be a deck that i'm not thinking about that could bypass this in some way.

Thanks again everyone for all of the tips and suggestions!

Hey there, ever considered Wistful Selkies?

They work perfectly well with devotion themes, replace themselves for kefnet and can be cast turn 2 if you miss the 4 mana on turn 2.

i really dig the garruk + curio
if i played this i think id take out the creatures you cant abuse with it like hornet queen and bellower,
and probably switch caryatid with Wistful Selkie to turn nykthos on quicker
how often do you even see bolts nowadays

Regal Force looks awesome and much more fit for purpose.

I'm not sure going down the path of Voyaging Satyr is the best one; once the devotion to green is high enough that the payoffs become worth it, you're probably winning with the Primalcrux anyway. The flip side is if more Walking Ballistas were on the upper end of the curve, as you noted, which could be insta-kill payoff.

Wistful Selkie looks good for the 3-drop slot, maybe in place of the Predator Ooze, which has less synergy than the other beatdown cards in that slot. Maybe that also goes for the Unyaro Bees - though I have concern about no answers to fliers other than Cloudthresher.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Yep and Voyaging Satyr can untap it so you can tap it for devotion again, and if you are looking for other non basic lands there's Treetop Village and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Ya it sounds like Polukranos would have done work on that board. If you want to continually repeat the Polukranos ability you could add Temur Sabertooth. You can activate the Sabertooth to pick up creatures and replay them, like Polukranos, and then Monstrosity again. It also works well with other creatures that have excellent enter the battlefield abilities like Eternal Witness, Wistful Selkie, and Nylea's Disciple.

What do you think of Regal Force over Mastery, it draws a ton of cards and adds to your Devotion?

If you want to amp up the devotion add in some hybrid mana creatures like Boros Reckoner, Nightveil Specter, Wistful Selkie, Dominus of Fealty, Overbeing of Myth, etc.

Sankkeri on Ezuri and his minions.

Hmm... For example maybe Orochi Hatchery (quite expensive to use), Wistful Selkie and Thelonite Hermit? Also I can suggest to you: Hornet Queen and Hornet Nest.
