If you added in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl I'd think those cards would slot in better.

so, after rigorous playtesting, I have come up with some cards to cut and add that will hopefully msk the deck better:


  • Alabaster Kirin This does absolutely nothing, has no prison effects, and is kinda useless here

  • Baird, Steward of Argive His prison effect is okay, but you can definitely slot in better options for not too much more money

  • Knight of Sursi Once again, just a vanilla card that doesn't do anything except get a small body on the battlefield, which isnt very good in commander, even if it is indestructible

  • Misthoof Kirin Only really okay in a morph deck, this is kinda useless here

  • Oreskos Explorer just a worse Land Tax

  • Segovian Angel a 1/1 with vigilance has to swing 120 times to win. just a terrible card all around.

  • Silver Knight Kinda bad, doesn't really do much .

  • Shepherd of the Lost this would be good if it have every other creature it's abilities, but alas, it's kinda terrible, especially because I'm smelling a voltron sub-theme around Avacyn

  • White Knight Unless your in a very black heavy meta, this is just bad, and is barley passable even if you have said meta

  • Journey to Nowhere a worse Pacifism

  • All your lands except basic plains. You need more utility lands, not just non-basics that do nothing

  • Wing Shards This one is debatable, although I don't see you casting a bunch of spells and having the mana to cast this, due to the lack of ramp you have.

  • Armillary Sphere bad ramp

  • Traveler's Amulet bad ramp

  • Orazca Relic have fun waiting 5 turns to get blessing and then only drawing one card

  • Take Vengeance crappy removal

  • Bishop of Wings I don't see this deck supporting an angel tribal

Potential Add-Ins

Thanks so much for reading my list, and I hope this has been some help to you. My main problem with this deck was it ran too much inefficient removal and bad creatures, but once these are added in, I think the deck should be a lot for mean. Have a great day! =)

Also, if you can swing it, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go pretty hard in this deck. I think I have a couple in my collection if you wanna trade for one.

Syr Konrad, the Grim would fit in good here. The deck looks good so far. But you may wanna start looking at your lands. Cabal Coffers Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth are a good start I know some of the lands can be pricey but if you acquire them over time you'll get there. Others to consider are Deserted Temple Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Phyrexian Tower .

One thing I can promise is, that I am not saying no to the mana rocks. I am still unconvinced about the urge of having them. The amount of games I was able to play was not that big, I admit, but theese few showed me, that:

  • there are bigger threats at the beginning than me and someone else is focussing all attention. I know, that's the risky strategy, but my goal is to survive to second point, which is...

  • ... staying alive long enough to cast Dragonstorm and search for Utvara Hellkite . If I can do this, while having one or two dragons on board, there is mostly too late for the others (especially with Dragon Tempest ).

Other insights from last weekend of playing are, that actually I didn't draw that much discounting artifacts either, once in a while there was a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , sometimes Dragonspeaker Shaman , sometimes Herald's Horn . But not all at the same time. I know - having additionally few rocks in deck, the probabilities would have been greater, but there was only one time, when I had to discard cards on end step - when I started with 3 Mountains and didn't draw any other land for maaaaaany turns. Sure, if I should have rocks, I wouldn't have the problem, but they also could have been stacked somewhere on the bottom.

To sum up - I found some pretty nice strategies lately and I am still strongly considering the mana rocks, but I need more games, to figure out, what other cards are useless enough to replace them with Sol Ring and company :)

And last but not least - how do you suggest a playtest, where and when? :)

Nyxbloom Ancient looks pretty stupid. Worth it to point out it's actually a multiplier, not 'an additional two mana', which means stuff like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gaea's Cradle becomes REALLY stupid. Any thoughts on working it into the list, or is it too win-more and vulnerable as an enchantment creature?

Cards like Doubling Season , Carpet of Flowers , Guardian Project , Asceticism , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Sol Ring are all generally good cards in mono green. Also if you are having a hard time against blue players cards like Choke , Veil of Summer , Savage Summoning can help.
