OLucas on Ooga Booga: Competitive Mono-G Ramp/Devotion

4 days ago

Vexing Shusher could be used in sideboard instead of Prowling Serpopard .

It's a smaller creature but it's cheaper and if the opponent tries to counter anything, including a Blood Moon or Heroic Intervention , you shush them for one green.

Questing Beast is a new Throne of Eldraine card that is bound to become a staple in mono-green and should be included in mainboard.

Strangleroot Geist whas mentioned by 6ixer misspelled. Resilient against boardwipes and removal.

Veil of Summer could be put in sideboard depending on your local meta.

Another direction you could take the deck is add some more mana-dorks and put in Leyline of Abundance . Just keep in mind that it doesn't synergise with Arbor Elf .

The Great Henge and Ghalta, Primal Hunger are cards I'm not sold on for monogreen stompy in modern since they could just be win-more cards but they might be great.

Fetches are good for thinning the deck lowering the odds of drawing lands later on.

For those reading the comments that whant some budget options Gaea's Revenge could come in instead of Carnage Tyrant and Castle Garenbrig instead of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Altough the castle could be added as a one or two off to the current manabase replacing forests.

BoardDumb on To War Enchantresses! A Mono White Aura Deck

5 days ago

Not a bad idea. I think auras are widely overlooked and I see potential here.

I think there's room for the devotion mech to be strengthened for the benefit of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , and some room to even make the deck somewhat more competitive if you're interested.

I would consider cards like Worship , which become easier to cast with Hero of Iroas already maxed out in the MB, and Leyline of Sanctity which provides 2 white symbols for devotion to white. Each offer quite a frustrating foil to a good number of and burn and hate decks.

In order to make room, I would suggest boarding or removing at least 1 or more Hyena Umbra and Angelic Destiny each. I also suggest a slight thinning out of auras in general, try for no more than 20, to offer the player a contingent against hand flooding uncastable auras early game, and thus, mulligans.

Umbra Mystic makes Hyena Umbra a fair bit redundant, you have plenty offering first strike as it is, making first strike also I think a bit redundant, so even replacing Hyena Umbra with stronger, more mana costly white auras which can benefit from Hero of Iroas , would be another suggestion here.

This is the most painful suggestion, due to the $$ involved... If you can get your hands on 4x Stoneforge Mystic and at least 1x Sword of Fire and Ice , that there is a great combo for both drawing cards and dealing with decks with aura removal. I would recommend thy be at least in the sideboard.

heyzeus_ It's been a while since I've updated this deck and asked for your advice, but this is the completed deck! I don't actually own all these cards. Those cards being Admonition Angel , Angel of Jubilation , Baneslayer Angel , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Cavern of Souls , and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Other than that i'm both sad and happy to have this deck be my very expensive baby. One problem though, I need to remove one card out of this deck and I don't really know what to choose. The one thing this deck does very well is ramp which is surprising for mono white. It also gains life very easily when there are angels out. But it didn't have card draw, which I'm hoping the artifacts fixed that problem. I don't want to remove any of the artifacts or enchantments everything else I'm open to. The only cards I can think of removing is Exquisite Archangel or Reya Dawnbringer .

Fellin22: Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be a fun one-off! It does end up with a lot of white-devotion, so the extra mana could be useful!

adam1floyd3 on Yawgmoth, Bad Medicine

First off, just want to say, I love your deck! It is very similar to how my own Yawgmoth deck was when I first made it. You've got some excellent synergies going without driving your budget crazy.

Looking over your maybe board, there are quite a few cards that I added to my own deck so I wanted to give you my thoughts on some of the ones that stuck out to me the most.

Skullclamp , If you can get your hands on one, it can be extremely effective card draw, even better than Yawgmoth in some scenarios. Overall I'm never sad to draw it when I play. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , easily has become one of the best lands in my deck, the value it generates tends to be better than thinks like Cabal Stronghold. - Reliquary Tower , if you really start leaning into a lot of card draw, an absolute must. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , easily one of the best cards to get with Yawgmoth out. Undying has proven to by amazing and so having another way to give it to your creatures is super helpful.

A couple of cards that I thought of that may or may not be helpful to you that I came up with include; Burnished Hart , fantastic for the extra swamps which tend to be safer to have out than mana-dorks. For that same reason, I'd also suggest Wayfarer's Bauble . Dreadhorde Invasion , having a way to get a token each turn to sacrifice or to allow to build up is super helpful. It is also pretty cheap which helps keep the budget down.

Again, awesome deck and I hope you are enjoying it!

This Might be a bit to much of a theme [and might have budget concern's,] but I think you can play your hand very fast with Leyline of Sanctity + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

Very similar to my build :) a good addition would be Deserted Temple , being able to untap Cabal Coffers or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can create an absolutely absurd amount of mana.
