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.

The cuts

New hotness


Now the changes (reduction in bears) came after multiple playtests. Initially the deck was designed to function a lot like my Arahbo, Roar of the World deck in just jamming as many tribal cards as possible. The issue with this though is:

  • Bears by and large have very few meaningful ETBs by themselves,
  • Arahbo, Roar of the World always functions from the command zone due to eminence, and
  • The way Arahbo is designed means that he requires as many cats as possible to function, as he can never affect himself.

Conversely Ayula, Queen Among Bears only functions on the battlefield, and we have access to multiple token producers in both permanent and spell form.

The Future

A few cards that have caught my attention for possible future additions:

Osbert on So Many Heads

Interesting that you omitted Unbound Flourishing as it's basically the tribal hydra card.

Rishkar's Expertise would also fit very well in here.

Ulvenwald Tracker is one of the few repeatable creature removal cards in green.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller is a great haste enabler.

Karametra's Acolyte is the most busted mana dork in mono green, right alongside Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

Giving your creatures flash is a great way to avoid board wipes and get the upper hand so I suggest including Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Vedalken Orrery , and Yeva, Nature's Herald . Alongside flash if you populate your deck with more instants than sorceries you can take advantage of a card like Veilstone Amulet which allows you deny your opponent spot removal and can still trigger Gargos.

Because your creatures are extremely valuable I suggest running some more ways to protect them like Heroic Intervention and Asceticism .

Mono green has some of the most powerful, one sided ramp effects so I'm just going to list a ton. Some of these are upgrades to existing cards you have in the deck already and some you probably haven't considered yet. These are usually the cards I include first in every mono green deck.

Gaea's Touch , Llanowar Druid , Nature's Lore , Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Nissa, Worldwaker , Nissa's Pilgrimage , Nissa's Triumph , Utopia Sprawl , Vernal Bloom , Early Harvest .

It's looking good, I play Windgrace myself and you got most covered. I can confiurm that Realms Uncharted is the best thing ever. It basically say get the 4 lands you want the most and it doesnt really matter where the opponent places them.

My suggetions for you are to add Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, maybe switch with Wood Elves as they do almost the same thing. Nissa often becomes a walker with some neat abilites and has a better statline to begin with.

Anyhow good luck with your Catman =)

-1  Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip / +1  Sunstone

Nissa has been underwhelming so far, and I decided to move her to the sidelines for a bit while I test the Sunstone.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The 3-mana Nissa I was talking about was the flipwalker Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

Cradle is usually the difference for me between winning on the spot or winning the turn after I get tokens. A pretty common line for me is to play 1-2 ramp spells after Omnath is in play, keeping cradle up then chording for craterhoof using all that sweet cradle mana to knock out a player or 2 that same turn. If I have a sac outlet in play that might be enough to finish off the 3rd guy. While you might still win over the following few turns after a good scapeshift or something, cradle just increases the clock and helps empty your hand faster.

I don't think Wrenn and Six is more effective than Ramunap Excavator since it doesn't synergize as well with all the Exploration -style effects this deck runs. It still has value as a 2-drop though, and I wouldn't fault anyone for trying it out.

Hey, looks good, but consider cutting several of the high CMC creatures for more support? In my opinion you don't need the high CMC creatures such as Thantis, Savageborn, Soul of Innistrad, Whiptongue, Crash, Emissary of Grudges, Guardian, Flameblast, etc. These creatures are all lackluster compared to the other high CMC creature of the same mana costs. If this was a budget deck then sure include several of these creatures, but this isn't a budget deck therefore you don't need them.

Cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Crash of Rhino Beetles
  • Emissary of Grudges
  • Flameblast Dragon
  • Loyal Guardian
  • Savageborn Hydra
  • Soul of Innistrad
  • Thantis, the Warweaver
  • Turntimber Sower
  • Whiptongue Hydra
  • Xantcha, Sleeper Agent
  • Yavimaya Elder
  • Darksteel Ingot
  • Lavalanche
  • Savage Twister
  • Ruinous Path
  • Fury Storm
  • Consign to Dust
  • 1x Swamp

AutomaticFrenzy on Forests^2

Working on a budget copy of this deck Forests^2 copy, where I remove Borrowing the East Wind Concordant Crossroads Mirri's Guile Misty Rainforest Oracle of Mul Daya Scroll Rack Sensei's Divining Top Sylvan Library Verdant Catacombs Wooded Foothills Windswept Heath .

Added four normal forests to replace the lands lost, so I also removed Realms Uncharted because I only have 5 different types of lands now, and might draw her after I've pulled a couple to my hand/field.

Also added Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip because I like the look of the card and it was in your aquire.

Any advice on what to add? I have some ideas for the 7 slots, but I figured it'd be a good idea to ask you as well.

EDIT: I'd probably be willing to splurge to get one of those $20-$40 if one of them is really good for the deck

Sylvanrush on [[Primer v3.4]] - OM_RATH!!! (M20 Update!!!)

In my version, I'm going to try Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Nissa's Triumph , because I already use Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip and Nissa, Vital Force - Nissa's Triumph is sick if you have a Nissa Planeswalker out.. if only the lands went to the battlefield! Nissa, Who Shakes the World 's ultimate is nuts with Om-nom out! I also have Prismatic Omen in my version, so Nissa, Who Shakes the World 's extra forest mana static is that much better. If the Nissa planeswalker direction works well, I might just have to put Evolution Sage in.

TBH, I'm not sold on Wrenn and Six yet, he doesn't really protect himself if you get him in an opening draw, he comes in with low loyalty - he's more of a mid-game play... I'd rather have a ramp spell than him, tbh.. like Kodama's Reach - he mostly just keeps the Om-nom engine running, and there are other options that I think are better. Pulling him for a bust-the-game-wide-open card like Boundless Realms wouldn't be my first choice.. but give it a try!

Force of Vigor is a great add, I still use Krosan Grip in my version, so I'll likely keep running with that.

Prismatic Vista is just about the easiest card to justify ever.. it's a SICK card for Om-nom - Blighted Woodland is a good cut choice.

not sure I like Springbloom Druid enough to take out Hour of Promise

Note - you're pulling two of your 'find any land you want' cards out, ( Sylvan Scrying and Hour of Promise - that might be risky..

I don't have Wheel of Fortune in my deck.. I own one, but I'm leary of potentially putting Path to Exile s, or Cyclonic Rift s in my opponent's hands - has it really worked well for you?
