Discard-focused Nath EDH deck - do the discard things, make the tokens, and either start swinging out or do some shenanigans with cards like Shaman of the Pack, Immaculate Magistrate, Luminescent Rain etc. Still in development so suggestions are needed and appreciated!

I looked through a lot of nath decks, and I think I like this one best.

I'm curious why you decided on 33 lands, and if jungle basin/Everglades are in there for that reason? Getting a "free" land is nice, but tapped is not, especially when you don't fix.

Also, is Novijen a placeholder? It's ug.

Thanks, Agnos! I think I'm at 33 right now more because the deck isn't play-tested yet. Also I'm really only playing commander casually with friends so having the fastest mana ramp possible isn't too much of a concern especially when fetch lands are out of my budget to get for every deck that I'd want. And good catch, I just goofed on that Novijen lol. I should really put Nephalia Academy in its place, good for commander in general but also specifically for the couple of my own discard spells that hit everyone including me.

Unfortunately that card only works on effects caused by opponents. There are colorless lands that force players to discard (usually as part of a loot effect), though.

Using some of your list as inspiration, here's mine:

Il be updating soon after my initial playtests are finished this weekend.

I feel very vulnerable to bad draws even with 35 lands, and have decided to go up to 36. Most of my decks run 37-41, though. I feel that elves and ramp (especially 3cmc cards that accelerate AND replenish) work as a handicap, but won't always get you there, especially in metas that are a bit slow but very focused on removal and controlling board states.

Nice! I'll check out your deck soon. And yeah idk I guess I'm just not paying attention to my cards xD

I should add a few more lands for sure, and I need more mana rocks - I played a slightly altered version of this deck today (cus I'm still missing about a quarter of the deck as it is built here) and so far it plays very slow the first 5-8 turns, and by that I mean more slow than my friend's or my other EDH decks. Obviously getting Nath out is crucial to a lot of the plays but unless I get a great hand with some elves to get some board state going early then there really isn't much to do. I can play discard spells before Nath comes out if I need to, but it just hurts to do that lol.
