A Standard deck with mana ramp for Nissa, Steward of Elements's ultimate as the win-con. I would like to cast her with 9 mana so I could do her ultimate right away. If the opportunity was right, I would consider casting her with 8 mana, doing her ultimate right away, and killing her, especially if I have another in hand or the one Call the Gatewatch.

Control via several Fog-like cards ( Commencement of Festivities , Haze of Pollen , and Encircling Fissure ), plus Cast Out, Forsake the Worldly, Dissenter's Deliverance , and Fumigate. Ramping with Servant of the Conduit, Druid of the Cowl , and Attune with Aether. One Call the Gatewatch because I gotta get Nissa since she's the win-con! Eight cycling lands, as well as other cycling cards and Oath of Nissa, to help me draw into what I need. For opponents with non-creature-based win-con decks, I would side out the Fogs and side in the more control-type cards like Negate, Disallow, Gideon's Intervention, and Thopter Arrest .

Please comment, make suggestions, and upvote if you like it!

EDIT 05/06/17: Added 2 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and deffo liking the results! And Gideon's Intervention in the SB has definitely pissed off a bunch of people, thus being very helpful to me ;p
