Nissa, Who Shakes the World Discussion
16 hours ago
I've played against this before and thoroughly hated it, even though I was the one playing control...
I'll be honest, I hate anything to do with Niv-Mizzet Reborn, but I always do like looking at the lists to try and understand them. I know you have early-game 'walkers, but would you consider running Fatal Push? I notice you're running playsets of Evolving Wilds + Fabled Passage. Also, just my personal opinion, I'd say run 2x Nissa of Shadowed Bows. She makes creatures out of lands, and can return/put a card onto the battlefield, which, who knows, may be Niv one day...
I want to know what your opinion on Nissa, Who Shakes the World is in this build. She gets a lot done, no doubt about that. I'm not sure if her abilities would be of use, but I'm just spitballing.
Good luck with the deck!

Is there any creatures you are specific "I will not take these out"? I have a few suggestions mainly about the ramp and how to make it more consistent/efficient.
You don't need gen wave and put in play cards. For example...
replace Nissa, Worldwaker with Nissa, Who Shakes the World because she pumps your forests, untaps lands, and allows you to thin your deck if -8. Vernal Bloom also if you feel like taking advantage, but you do have vorinclex.
Eternal Witness at least one
Instead of Green Sun's Zenith I would go Genesis Hydra it allows you to dig for permanents mm like Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip (witch will also let you get a creature when it enters) rather than just a creature, and gives you a blocker / attacker
If you want to have a possible turn 3 add in Devoted Druid & Vizier of Remedies and to help cast it utopia sprawl and the card you wanted to add Sylvan Caryatid. That's if you want to add white. I'm a Mono Green player to but this is good.
Last suggestion would be if you went Hydras like someone said Unbound Flourishing, I play Hydras and they are better than most people think.
Hey check out my deck Gruul Hydras
If you want genesis wave to be optimal going all out on getting it pumped up is the way to go. There is an old school Gen wave deck that was pretty good i would refer to it for extra tid bits.

Anything that lets you turn your lands into creatures with vigilance is also technically letting you attack with a creature and then tap it for mana, such as Embodiment of Insight or Nissa, Who Shakes the World.

GreenGuy47 I just brought the deck back from retirement! I had converted it into a Selvala cEDH , but i hardly played it, and Omntah was my general and the deck has always been fun. I definitely like Monstrous Onslaught because creature board wipes in green are so hard to come by! Three Visits, yeah, I don't really feel like dropping 100+ on something I can't even get foil lol. I run so many dorks to get Omnath out turn 2 so I keep the ramp spells limited, but idk, that might change depending on how play testing goes this time around. I was considering Helix Pinnacle as a wincon I could flash in with Emergence Zone or Vedalken Orrery, or just have it out early game because people don't want to waste a removal spell on it in the early goings. I've had Nissa, Who Shakes the World on my radar since bringing the deck back....i like mana doublers :D I will definitely be testing out different stuff as I get this deck back up to snuff, thanks for the all suggestions and reminders of good green stuff ^__^

Hey, idk if this deck is still active but I thought I would recommend a few cards. First of all Monstrous Onslaught is a must for all Omnath decks as it will most of the time wipe just about all of your opponents creatures for only 5 mana. Elephant Grass can be good. Elvish Herder is a great trample giver. Three Visits is better than rampant growth if you have the money. Nissa, Who Shakes the World is basically vernal bloom 2.0. I think Doubling Cube needs back in and Helix Pinnacle wouldn't hurt either. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is great card draw. Sword of Feast and Famine untaps your lands and gives you protection from a cast down or walk the plank. Crop Rotation is great with rogues passage and the cradle. Plow Under absolutely kills someone usually. Calming Verse is a one sided enchantment wipe, and Sylvan Tutor is wordly tutors weak cousin.

Love the deck! I built this on MTGO and so far so good. Couple thoughts:
- I think it needs 36+ lands. I noticed a lot of mulling to get more than 2 lands in hand. In a lands-matter deck, you want an overload so you can consistently trigger. Lands I'd definitely add: Strip Mine, Wasteland, Flagstones of Trokair (great with sac effects - replaces itself with ANY Plains).
I would also consider adding some big threats like a Eldrazi Titan or Ugin.

If I were to add proliferation to the deck I'd probably slot in a Karn's Bastion.

Like the deck. Thought the deck could possibly use Rabid Bite for potential removal as the plant tokens will end up big due to all the landfall triggers. Also, Nissa, Who Shakes the World and her ultimate will bring a huge landfall mass, while her plus one could give those lands extra use (and you can clearly get them back if someone blows them up). Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip is another good card as it would be very easy to flip in your deck's case and is a really good planeswalker for land decks. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar can make you more plant tokens that can benefit from Phylath while ticking up her loyalty. The explore mechanic would benefit your deck as well in my opinion. Proliferate might be useful your decks case, however I cannot seem to think of any at the moment in your decks colors.
