Nissa's Encouragement Discussion
1 year ago
I'd suggest removing these cards:
Brambleweft Behemoth - It's a 6/6 for 6 with trample, yes it's an elemental but there are far better ones, especially for 6 mana.
Drove of Elves for 4 mana, you'd want something stronger than this, it's not an elemental, and the only real upside is that it has hexproof.
Nissa's Encouragement It's not really worth to have, considering that the cards it gets you aren't that great.
Nissa, Genesis Mage there are better nissa walkers out there
I'd suggest these cards:
Ashling the Pilgrim you can build up a boardwipe, and with omnath triggers, you could easily kill everyone.
Briarhorn gives you either a 3/3 blocker with +3/+3 on target creature for a combat trick, or you can evoke it, get the +3/+3 anyways and then you get to deal damage with Omnath.
Brighthearth Banneret makes your ele's cheaper
Fertilid 2 land for 3 + 4 mana instant speed fetch too.
Flamekin Harbinger topdeck Eletutor for 1 mana. Really recommend this card, plus elemental decks are the only decks which can really run this.
Greenwarden of Murasa It's effectively a big, double eternal witness.
Incandescent Soulstroke lets you cheat out an elemental which then gets sacrificed later.
Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar gives you ways to return lands to your hand for more landfall triggers.
Skullmulcher gives some card draw.
Soul of the Harvest I know it doesn't work with all the tokens you make, buuuut it does give draw.
Undergrowth Champion gives you a nigh indestructible blocker so you can go wild with your attacks.
Walker of the Grove gives you a 4/4 ele when it leaves the battlefield.
Budoka Gardener gives you extra land draws/elemental generation
Flamekin Village gives a creature trample, and is an ele land
Primal Beyond is also an elemental land.
Raging Ravine is also an elemental land
Skarrg Guildmage makes a land 4/4 for 3 mana
Waker of the Wilds does the same thing.
Vivien Reid gives some nice card draw.
Animist's Awakening with the amount of ramp you have, you could easily have a massive awakening.
Chord of Calling is a pretty good tutor in green.
Khalni Heart Expedition Gives you moooooore ramp, but more importantly, double landfall triggers at instant speed.
Crop Rotation is an instant speed landfall.
Harrow more instant speed landfall.
Perilous Forays Sacrifice your free landfall elementals for 1 misc, get a tapped basic, and another elemental.
Sakura-Tribe Elder for more instant speed landfall.
Tireless Tracker gives you 2 mana card draw for landfall.
Forgotten Ancient can be a real all star when buffing up your board.
Grave Sifter could be a nice include to let you replay elementals, but considering that people are bringing tribal decks, maybe not.
If you went down the burn route, Hostility would be a fun card.
Rite of the Raging Storm is a pretty fun card in multiplayer.
Sylvan Awakening is okay, and pretty funny to kill someone with 2/2 lands.
Eternity Vessel Can make you live forever
Indomitable Creativity you can destroy your own elementals to get other creatures.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow upside is that you can get heaps of lands, downside is that you don't have /that/ many legendary permanents.
Constant Mists will protect you from damage all the damn time.
If you wanna be super mean, Tectonic Break to destroy everyone's lands, except that you'd have way more lands out than anyone else. Boom // Bust Destructive Force Devastating Dreams From the Ashes Thoughts of Ruin Tremble Wildfire

Thanks for the feedback-- I'm building just with cards that I own and have pulled from boosters. I noticed that I actually do have 2 copies of Scaled Behemoth, and so Accomplished Automaton has been removed in its favor. I also replaced Ancient Brontodon with another Greater Sandwurm. I do want to keep the Nissa's Encouragement along with the brambleweft and Nissa herself, because I believe that the sorcery there can help me keep my hand at 7 in case of Kefnet the Mindful being out, as well as being able to return Nissa from the graveyard to my hand. Brambleweft Behemoth is present in one copy simply because Nissa's Encouragement searches for it, and I believe the sup-optimal-ness of the card is made up for by the fact that it's a 6/6 that I have two searches for and can also return from the graveyard.

You have a good start, but there's some sub-optimal cards in here. I am assuming this is a budget deck, but there are still some strong options at lower price points. Feral Prowler, Brambleweft Behemoth, Accomplished Automaton, Ancient Brontodon, Nissa's Encouragement, and Nissa, Genesis Mage are all cards that are either sub-optimal, too slow, or just don't fit the deck. Some better options for payoffs that are still cheap would be Thundering Spineback, Sifter Wurm, and Scaled Behemoth, while some better enablers would be Spring / Mind and Beneath the Sands. Hour of Promise would also be a good addition, but you would have to switch up your mana base to include a healthy number of desserts. You could also make the deck better with better payoffs if you wanted to spend more money, but you can easily keep the deck under $15-20 and still be useable.

Consider Nissa's Encouragement and Brambleweft Behemoth? Brambleweft is not the best, but Encouragement can tutor for it. It's still a 6/6 trample creature for six mana. Being able to tutor for three different cards including Nissa even from the graveyard for five mana is good.
For cheap removal there's bounce options: Unsummon and Winds of Rebuke which conveniently has synergy with Encouragement. Baral's Expertise is a fine mass bounce spell. Rishkar's Expertise could be good with Brambleweft; letting you possibly draw and cast Encouragement for free.

Fun suggestion, if I had the cards. I'm keeping this deck accurate to the deck I have IRL. I'll put those into the aqquireboard. I definitely want the 4 Nissa's Encouragement.

Hey, consider more 2 drop creature ramp? Druid of the Cowl or Naga Vitalist along with Avid Reclaimer can help to ramp into Nissa's Encouragement and/or Brambleweft or Nissa herself. Believe it or not Encouragement is the best card in the deck because it can tutor for three different cards and put them all in your hand. If you have more Encouragement add them, I would play it as a 4 of here. More Encouragement will also help if Nissa or Brambleweft is killed because it can tutor for either from the graveyard.
