Episode 31: Nissa, Steward of Stompy Elements


This is a first-draft deck brewed live on our podcast, Mox Team Zirconia. We aim to inspire people to build their own decks for competitions.

**What's with that maybeboard? We talk about a ton of cards on the podcast, and I add those to the maybeboard so you can follow along.

This deck is untested. Give it a tune! What would you change or add? We want to hear your suggestions in the discussion below.

STMS says... #1

hey! you played enough lands!

I don't think there are enough non-dork creatures for rishkar to hit but I could be wrong.

Why would you ever run Halimar Tidecaller over more embodiments/dorks? she doesn't really seem to help unless you already are going off, so why not just make sure you actually go off by playing the combo peices instead?

all in all intresting theme, I am skeptical but it would be cool if it worked

Is it possible to be skeptical and optimistic at the same time? Maybe that's just "unsure." Want to see if we can make flooding and/or drawing lands late in the game into a good upside.

I could not convince Graham to cut the Tidecaller. That's brewing by committee! There were many different ways this deck could go, and I think that once we actually play with the new Nissa, a clearer direction will present itself. So hard to evaluate a planeswalker as weird as this! Which of her abilities will be the most useful? We'll find out and then optimize from there.

Also noteworthy that this list was still trying to fight the Felidar Guardian combo, which is no longer a thing, so the control cards will probably change.
