Nissa, Vastwood Seer

Legendary Creature — Elf Scout

When Nissa, Vastwood Seer enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic Forest card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, if you control seven or more lands, exile Nissa, then return her to the battlefield transformed under her owner's control.

One thing to note: see how as we add more cards a mana curve naturally starts to form? That happens just about every deck. I try to maintain the curve that forms unless I have a reason to adjust it. So we'll be cutting cards that disrupt the curve. For example, at this moment we would want to cut cards that cost 6 cmc. But we're not done.

Hey, looks good, nice start. Creative intro deck description :) Do you have the cards in the maybeboard? There's some cards there especially lands that are better than main deck cards.

I think you're better off playing more basic Forests in place of ETB tapped lands such as Jungle Hollow, Kazandu Refuge, Akoum Refuge, etc. even the Bounce lands even though they have interaction with landfall. Consider more/upgraded land ramp? It helps with more Forests. Windgrace as Commander can benefit from a lot of land ramp because you need lands to fuel his abilities. More land ramp also helps to power landfall creatures.

Land ramp to consider adding:

Farseek, Lore, Skyshroud is dual land ramp.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Charnelhoard Wurm
  • Garna, the Bloodflame
  • Rubblehulk
  • Whiptongue Hydra
  • Hunting Wilds

Other semi-budget cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Lavalanche
  • Ruinous Path
  • Savage Twister
  • Seek the Horizon
  • Stitch Together
  • Consign to Dust
  • Seer's Sundial
  • The Mending of Dominaria
  • Khalni Heart Expedition
  • Acidic Slime
  • Centaur Vinecrasher
  • Worm Harvest
  • Gaze of Granite

darkone8 thanks for your comment!

As far as budget goes, having almost all the cards passed down from 2 generations to me made my life a bit easier for those big boi cards, and newer cards are still being printed so thats nice!

Samut, the Tested is a card everyone really ignored, I liked it a lot and started using her now people at my lgs who build superfriends now see her as a must. To further convince you about her hidden talents Ill debunk her abilities: I completely understand that she seems unviable especially underwhelming with her +1, however, that's not why shes here! Her -2 can kill both your Arena Rector and Academy Rector immediately! Grabbing you an extra planeswalker or your Omniscience / Doubling Season

Alternatively her -7, grabs you 2 more planeswalkers from your deck, and places them directly into play! Usually you have Doubling Season in play when you ult her, so why not ult 2 more planeswalkers while you're at it!

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip was actually in this deck before, the problem is, her flip isn't very powerful. You barely want to ult her, same with Party Jace, and a couple other planeswalkers that are there for there + and - abilities. I wanna ult these bois!

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker will be added though! Unfortunately it's not in my collection just yet, but once it is I will include him. The question is who to take out?

Noting how you don't seem to be running on any sort of a budget, I'm just going to throw out a couple of the other planeswalkers to replace a few of the ones you have that aren't that good (Like Samut, the Tested , who isn't effective since your deck doesn't have much to do with creatures). My personal suggestions would be to play some planeswalkers that have +1/+1 counter abilities, like some of the Ajanis do help boost Ramos's ability. Also, I would play some of the flip planeswalkers (like Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip) and I would personally play Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker because of the control options it offers.

Kulrath Knight and Everlasting Torment can't be run in here because they have a rakdos color identity

Would recommend a few land dorks to recur to get you to midgame quicker. Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves and Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip get a lot of traction in every meren variant.

otherwise a fun build :P

Are you sure? Between the Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl combo, with Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Marwyn, the Nurturer . Also I've been thinking about replacing Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip with some 1 cmc mana dorks, as I don't see the deck hitting 7 lands that easily.

"Other" Section Observations:

Burgeoning good card, but you have alot of multiple lands per turn cards

Constant Mists solid

Crop Rotation Unnecessary imo

Life / Death Can only use one spell, can prob find something that is more impactful to the deck

Sensei's Divining Top Yes

Sylvan Advocate Good because it's a 2/3 for 2 mana, but only adds significant value with commitment to land creatures

Sylvan Library V good card, excels if you maintain lifegain sub-strategy

Titania, Protector of Argoth Only good if you commit to the graveyard recall sub-strategy

Traverse the Outlands fantastic, can this be turned into a win condition?

Volcanic Offering fun af, but probably better options for the card slot

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Print out Business Cards saying "GG" for when you play this

Wildfire Abso-freakin-lutely

Zuran Orb A must have if you commit to graveyard recall + lifegain sub strategies


Additional Observations:

World Breaker kinda sucks for 7 mana

Bane of Progress a conditional 6 drop is risky; amazing sideboard card in our meta

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip her -2 will trigger the legendary rule

Exsanguinate Love it.


Final Comment:

Your non-creature game is strong, but your damage output is weak and is currently the biggest flaw facing your deck. Your best bet imo is to either rip out creatures and synergize removal + damage or add in a few more big trample creatures. I think your comparative advantage lies in creatures: you'll consistently have an ungodly mana pool to take advantage of them, and you're already relying on creatures for this concept to work.

Some good creatures for this deck:

Liege of the Tangle

Oran-Rief Hydra

Charnelhoard Wurm

Blightsteel Colossus

Ghalta, Primal Hunger

Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer

Phantom Nishoba

Stonehoof Chieftain

Worldspine Wurm
