Planeswalker — Nissa
+1: Target land you control becomes a 4/4 elemental creature with trample. It's still a land.
-1: Untap up to four target forests.
-7: Search your library for any number of basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library. Those lands become 4/4 elemental creatures with trample. They're still lands.

Nissa, Worldwaker Discussion

RNR_Gaming I made mono green elf-based decks before getting to this deck, based around mana doublers. I play with the same group of friends all the time, and most elf decks disappeared from our meta. There’s just too much board control and wraths tend to hit elf decks really hard. True, elves can be insanely fast and are great combo pieces but I have a very hard time making an elf-based deck that can win outside of absurd god-hands. I’m probably not a great elf-deck pilot! This is why I’m focusing on mana doublers in this deck.
For now, I would really like to stick with the mana doubling theme. This makes the deck more unique and pretty fun to play.
Nevertheless, your great comment made me think about other cards. What about Arbor Elf , Voyaging Satyr and Nissa, Worldwaker ? Untapping lands with Garruk is often extremely strong, and these provide a similar effect.

Hey Kain. There's a lot to unpack here haha.
Hall of Gemstone is strong not only because it allows you to generate green mana with colorless lands, but also because it disrupts multicolored opponents (each turn, they choose one color and will pretty much only be able to use spells and abilities of that color).
Questing Beast just seems like a french vanilla beater to me. He's alright in a planeswalker-filled meta I suppose. But even there I think you could just beat your way into planeswalkers' faces with Omnath and the gang.
Angel's Trumpet is just an odd effect for mono green so I thought you might like it. In conjunction with Silent Arbiter , it does heavy damage each turn to any opponent with a lot of creatures, while also tapping down their potential blockers. Angel's trumpet also gives all your dudes vigilance. So even without the arbiter, since your green creatures will usually be bigger than opponents' dudes, you likely won't mind swinging with your team every turn while your opponents will be at risk putting their tiny dorks into combat.
Uba Mask essentially reads "when anyone draws a card, they must play it the turn they drew it or it is lost forever". Since you produce a ton of mana, you will always be able to play the cards you draw. Opponents will struggle with this though, making sub-optimal plays so that they don't lose the card they drew. Uba Mask is brutal with Teferi's Puzzle Box or Hall of Gemstone , or against opponents who draw a lot of cards or play a lot of counterspells. Even without support the mask is a highly disruptive card.
Abundance is decent for several reasons. It replaces draws, which means you would be unaffected by Uba Mask and would not lose if your library is empty. It also allows you to always draw gas if you're top-decking, or get land if you need it to cast a big spell.
It That Betrays only triggers from sacrifice. Killing something with deathtouch damage will not trigger It That Betrays. He's alright on his own since he has annihilator, but he's also easy to remove. I think better things can be done with 12 mana. Same with the other eldrazi. Sure they're strong, but they aren't that interesting imo (except for Emrakul, the Promised End . that card is super interesting).
Lignify can only target creatures while Song of the Dryads can target any permanent. Also, you can get rid of creatures by applying combat pressure (forcing blocks), so lignify is only marginally useful.
Unless you have an immediate draw effect, Reclaim and Noxious Revival won't return your card until next turn. They also telegraph your plans to your opponents, so if you put something strong on top with Reclaim, your opponents might band together to eliminate you before you draw it. Regrowth would be better imo.
Green is generally weak to board wipes. It would be especially bad if your stored a ton of mana with Omnath and somebody wiped the board, causing you to lose all that mana. Colfenor's Urn and Cauldron of Souls protect your creatures from board wipes.
Mimic Vat is a way for green to steal creatures. Or, you can use it to reuse sweet ETB creatures like Eternal Witness , God-Eternal Rhonas , Meteor Golem , Ulvenwald Hydra , etc. It can also deter board wipes, since opps might not want to destroy creatures if it means you get to imprint the best one.
Not of This World = free protection for Omnath. When you are storing a lot of mana via Omnath, it is all lost if he gets removed, so this helps to prevent that. It can also be used in a pinch to protect vital artifacts/enchantments like The Great Henge or Mana Reflection which wear huge bullseyes.
Sensei's Divining Top is never a bad card, but in most decks it is just filler. Since you're in green you could use this card slot to just draw a lot of cards instead with something like Hunter's Prowess .
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (and stax effects in general) is just unfun to play against. Just my personal opinion. I wouldn't feel accomplished if I won a game simply because I dropped a Vorinclex.
Bow of Nylea isn't bad, but there are plenty more impactful cards out there.
Anyway these are just my opinions. EDH is all about playing however you like, so don't feel like you have to make adds or cuts just because they were recommended. Play that Kitten-Hydra if you love the card!
Yes Gingerbread Cabin is lackluster. Inventors' Fair could be a good replacement. Nissa, Worldwaker looks very good here! Extra 4 mana each turn? Sign me up. Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus is cool but very situational (you would need both cards in hand, plus a way to sacrifice artifacts). But infinite turns in mono green is extremely rare, which fits your deck's theme of "green doing non-green things", so if you want to reach for that dream go for it! Trading Post might be a good sacrifice outlet for said combo. Sword of the Animist is a common ramp piece for non-green decks. Since you have green, there are better ramp options. Umbral Mantle is very good with Karametra's Acolyte or Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , so yeah I could see it warranting a spot. Worst case it can be used to give Omnath pseudo-vigilance. I agree with your assessment of the Nyleas, there are better cards to sink mana into.

(CAUTION: TL;DR Crap AHEAD; Reason: This is a set of opinions of cards of note for this deck.)
@king-saproling: After all this, I'd like a possible Review on this deck, as well as this:
Commander / EDH*
30 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
This is a 1 Damage KO Deck. Utilizing Card Advantage, a Myriad of threats to slow those down, Heck, I actually put the High CMC stuff in as Atemsis Bantha Fodder. just to win a game; so they're not useless at all as this is how Atemsis, All-Seeing Works as a CMDR; high amounnts of unique CMC Costs for use.
But what about these?
Hall of Gemstone
: (I guess Omnath Reserve works here?)
(Ramp or Kill... I'd rather ramp; not enough powerful creatures to be a "Dragon"...)
(Is this why you said "No." to a
(But why use this, W/O
(I, uh,,, How good is this? I never understood how these effects are "Good".)
(It's a Random Pick, but at least you get to choose which pick needed. II keep.)
7: Teferi's Puzzle Box ( Mindmoil ? IN MY ?! Permanent Keep.) 8: Meteor Golem If only what this guy can do IRL is safe; as it's not. Awesome effect; almost like a Bramblecrush on legs; Artifice also. Keep.). 9. Cauldron of Souls (This looks good for my Cromat "No Counters Allowed" Deck. But why the recommendation?
10: Colfenor's Urn (Uh... I'd have an opinion as long as I know Exile Stoarge Plus'.) 11: Lifeline (I'd like to make a list of stuff hates, & recursion is one. Since we're in theme, this Pases.) 12: Mimic Vat (This is secret tech for Superfriends; but what to use w/ here) 13: Mirrorworks 14: Not of This World (This wasn't chopped. This was Planet-Cleaved. How many creatures here have 7 Power?) 15: Pariah's Shield (I guess it's for Omnath? I'd like to change this up after this as well as work on my Atemsis Deck for this.)
As well as the Losers of this deck...
(There is a combo involving this,
, something w/ Deathtouch, &
It That Betrays
to wipe a whole field clean while going to Value Town. Why the cut?)
(I re-entered this in as it's Mana-Pricey, but we've Omnath Anyway; so putting this online is proof of
's HUGE Ramp.)
(I guess we've already enough flying stuff; & this was just a clunker.)
(Why cut this, & not
Song of the Dryads
also? Is this for turning a creature into a mere blocker?)
(Is this Aura really that bad? Alright,
Tuvasa the Sunlit
has it now.)
(Reclaim is at least, affordable (Quasi-Recursion via Topdecking;
is basically the same, but on
level power. Why does everyone think Phyrexian Mana Cards are so good? I'll never know...)
Scour from Existence
(Do I Other Ways of Destruction? I guess I'll allow the cut.)
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
(Are Eldrazi that Bad here? It's either This, or Kozilek, & It that Betrays. Should I trust my gut on this?)
: Replaced by
indefinitely unless it gets banned.
Key to the City
: (I guess The Quasi-Rummage requiring more mana for one to have a creature unblackable, then untap to Draw. I didn't think I'd be better off w/o Discarding...)
(Blowing up Mana Rocks; someone said (Kinda...), But you were right about this as a cut; I thought it as sketchy.)
Sensei's Divining Top
((?_?) I mean, even
is understandable, but saying Chopp'd to a Big Staple of all Commander/EDH? I'm at a loss...)
(Should I put
((Looks at Card.) Why say no? It makes food, & ramps. Just imagine the (Weiß)Versatility this can do.
It That Betrays
(Why say no to this? is it that average? Remember that Value Town Combo...).
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
(Does this attract that much hate? Is that why the Eldrazi are veto'd here?
Wall of Tanglecord
(Actually, good piont; would rather bust defenses, not use them.)
(Are you confident to suggest cutting
It's one of the best cards in this case, sadly...)
20: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (Doubling Land Mana; & more so, while Halfing everyone else? Is the problem w/ big fatties I didn't know of even?) 21: Bow of Nylea (+1/+1 Counter on a Creature? 2 Damage to a flyer? 3 Life? & Retrieve 4 Cards from the Yard to the Bottom of your library in any order? Attackers have Deathtouch? Damn; I'd actually put this in now if I've a way to Untap Freely for this...)
& the underdogs?
(Is this worth keeping? Seems lackluster...)
(Searching for all Forests? Why not Landfall like mad? Opinions?)
3: Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus
Extra Turns w/o
. Good, or not?)
4: Sword of the Animist Is this good for ramp? I'm wondering...) 5: Umbral Mantle (Yeah, this could've been good, if the Shaman Staff 1 Damage Deathtouch Steal via IT THAT BETRAYS is far better even w/o the last piece!) 6: Yeva, Nature's Herald : (Is another Restricted to just Creatures worth it?) 7: Nylea, God of the Hunt : Already got a way to Trample like MAD, & I've other ways to increase both Power & toughness for my creatures anyway. Nylea, Keen-Eyed ? Worse here, but better in Animar, Soul of Elements all-creature builds. Oh, & the latter demands Topdecking, otherwise, you might just wasted a good card.
Sorry for the immense sized comments; I just want to point out my opinions; & I'm sorry if So, that said, I'll revise my Atemsis, All-Seeing Deck later; It's night where I'm at...

Just run Sisay, Weatherlight Captain as your commander, and you can have a legal commander deck you can play anywhere. The Genju is recursive, so once you tutor it up once, it's effectively the same as having it as your commander, since you wouldn't want to pay the command tax, instead returning it to your hand when it dies, anyway.
The other good thing about Sisay is you can tutor up Nissa, Vital Force , Nissa, Who Shakes the World , Nissa, Worldwaker , Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper , Titania, Protector of Argoth , Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , and Anthousa, Setessan Hero . All of that will add quite a bit of on-theme power to your plan.

Very nice build! You might like these: Perilous Forays (super strong with your general! essentially allows you to pay 1 mana to ramp 1 land and deal 3 damage), Fertilid (elemental that ramps!), Retreat to Kazandu (great with Fertilid, still cool otherwise), Greenwarden of Murasa , Fierce Empath , Warstorm Surge , Budoka Gardener , Animist's Awakening , Genesis Wave , World Shaper , Splendid Reclamation , Embodiment of Insight , Nissa, Vital Force , Nissa, Worldwaker , Generator Servant

Hey man, love your list!
I'm running a Reki myself and been having tons of fun with it. If I may just drop some suggestions here:
Honor-Worn Shaku , my god this over performs in many ways. It's no legendary but it works well with any legendary.
Sakiko, Mother of Summer This beast pumps out heavy mana in your second main phases and has great synergy with your Omnath, Locus of Mana . I'd switch her with Sashi, Daughter of Seshiro. You don't have that much snakes or shamans to make her that important imo.
The Great Henge Is jsut ONE of those cards..
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Because salty tears taste best with Vorinclex on the field.
Nissa, Worldwaker just the +1 to untap FOUR FORESTS.. and let's not get started over the -7. There are many other planeswalker I run in my deck but this one definitely stands out for me.
Bow of Nylea has so much possibility's and potential in an entire EDH match, don't underestimate this card.
Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Helped me get some stuff out of the graveyard lategame. Pretty awesome.

I run a Glissa, the Traitor death trample deck. Find cards that grant trample to deathtouch creatures, give the finger to people attacking me, hit for massive amounts because the have to throw as many creatures as it’s power.
So, I run Chaos Wand because it’s funny and for this exact reason; target atraxa player rips Become Immense off the top attaches it too glissa who already has a Loxodon Warhammer and then Blossoming Defense . The guy just throws up his hands and is out. Now my GF she was playing at the same table and winks at me and plays Turnabout Untapping my wand and sol ring. I also had a Nissa, Worldwaker in play and then untap my forests. I use the wand again and hit a Relentless Assault Knock out another player. Then she kills me next turn.
