Hi

Your deck looks great for the first try.

I was suggested your deck under my favorite deck, which uses the same commander. Had Ghalta, Primal Hungeras Commander first, but then switched to Nylea, Keen-Eyed because Ghalta was to OP ;-) Also had Nylea, God of the Hunt like you, but i don't need "Other creatures you control have trample."

What do you want to do with your deck, I did not realize.

You have some mechanics:

Landfall

+1/+1 counter

Control

If all goes well your deck is strong, but what do you do when you play against a deck that destroys/enchants the 2-3 key cards? I would add the:

Nature's Spiral

Once and Future

And remove:

Defend the Hearth

Hunter's Ambush

You say you've been playing for only a month? Makes me wonder how you got such a strong deck together, respectfully.

What helped me a lot was to make the listing personal.

Potential Non-Boros Commanders: Show

SelfieM on Marwyn's Elves

JoJosMagic: First of all thank you for all the suggestions and kind words! The deck started of as a budget build but with addition of cards like Gaea's Cradle and Mana Crypt I've moved passes this limitation and started to pour more funds in the deck however, I still want to limit over the total cost so will most likely not add cards like Mox Diamond, but adding a Doubling Season would definitely be on the table I'm not sure if it would be beneficial as it would most likely replace Hardened Scales. Where with a lot lower cost it does not being too much impact and generally it does the same as most triggers will be on Marwyn, the Nurturer when playing other elf's. So when it comes to doubling season I'm really unsure but I'm still considering it.

When it comes to Aggressive Mammoth I've already used it in earlier days of the deck however it is way to expensive for what it does, a more likely card that I'm considering for the deck is Nylea, God of the Hunt that gives trample to everything and more wile being 2 mana cheaper plus it is indestructible however, I'm still testing out Nylea, Keen-Eyed and those two would most likely have to trade places.

As the problem with lack of defence against fliers comes down strictly to the fact that my play group for some reason always runs a small number of creature with flying, regardless in any other meta this would proably a big weakness of the deck.

The Ozolith is already on its way in the mail and will definitely be a great addition and will provide extra "protection" from creature board wipes. Then regarding the planeswalkers Nissa Revane is definitely on my "to get" radar and will replace Nissa, Voice of Zendikar however my dilemma with this card is the first plus one ability that fetches Nissa's Chosen as I do not want to use one of my 99 for a 2/3 that can be fetched as I would prefer having any other card that already is in the deck so my question would be is it still worth it to add this nissa to the deck without the Nissa's chosen in my 99.

With cards like Blanchwood Armor, Presence of Gond and Colossification I really don't like using them as then the opponents get that 2 for 1 when they use a removal spell on the enchanted creature and my play group in particular tries to destroy any creature that has some "make it big" enchantment on it.

Then with God-Eternal Rhonas I'm stuck between getting him or Rhonas the Indomitable so I'll probably leave it to whichever I can get first on a good deal and then it will go in the deck.

And last but not least Harvest Season is a card that I was thinking about getting last night as if I'm understanding the card correctly, in this deck can fetch for all remaining forest in mid to late game as most of the creatures can be tapped but it would take the slot of Cultivate and as stupid as it sounds I love the full art cultivate art and it will be difficult to cut it from the deck :)

So sorry for the lengthy reply but you had some really good points and suggestions so it is really apricated and just wanted to do the justice with my answer to such great comments!

MTGBurgeoning on Zaxara: Built by the MTG Burgeoning Community

4 months ago

Wow! You put some work into those suggestions!! Excellent! Here are the nonland cards that leapt off of the screen and right into my heart...and then the deck list:

  1. Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip

  2. Rhystic Study

  3. Cyclonic Rift

  4. Assassin's Trophy

  5. Demonic Tutor

  6. Lightning Greaves

  7. The Ozolith

  8. Sol Ring

  9. Arcane Signet

  10. Chromatic Lantern

  11. Thran Dynamo

Two other spells will be included, as suggested by MTG Burgeoning YouTube subscriber Me Geal:

  1. Garruk's Uprising

  2. Farseek

I prefer Garruk's Uprising over Nylea, God of the Hunt. Both spells provide trample to our creatures, but Garruk's Uprising is more favorable due to its card-draw ability. Nearly all of our creatures will have power four or greater, and as a bonus, Garruk's Uprising is triggered by creature tokens as well. Each time Zaxara, the Exemplary creates a hydra creature token with power four or greater, we will draw a card if Garruk's Uprising is under our control. Drawing cards is more beneficial to us than Nylea, God of the Hunt's ability to give target creature +2 +2 until end of turn.

So this brings our total to 13 cards. Let's continue:

What if we add Diabolic Intent instead of Worldly Tutor?

Sacrificing a creature as an additional cost to cast Diabolic Intent should not be a burden in our deck, and we can put the card directly into our hand as opposed to on top of our library. Additionally, we can seek out any card in our library and not just a creature card and keep it a secret from our opponents by not being forced to reveal it. Diabolic Intent is, for all intents and purposes, Demonic Tutor #2.

What if we add Rampant Growth instead of Simic Signet?

By doing so, we dodge artifact removal, mass permanent removal and an overloaded Cyclonic Rift. The spells have equal converted mana cost and yield the same total amount of mana (if we include the land needed to activate Simic Signet to the basic land fetched-out by Rampant Growth).

What if we add Thought Vessel instead of Winding Constrictor?

The volume of cards and synergy among our +1 +1 counter spells are already strong in our deck. I sense that our ramp needs strengthening and with few deck slots remaining, necessity may outweigh desire. Thought Vessel helps us ramp and gives us no maximum hand size. We should be drawing a lot of cards, and we prefer keeping them in our hand over discarding down to seven.

What if we add Bloom Tender instead of Seedborn Muse?

I am unsure about Seedborn Muse. Currently we have eight instant spells officially in our deck list (including Cyclonic Rift and Assassin's Trophy) and without a flash theme and/or enabler, I wonder if the card slot dedicated to Seedborn Muse can be filled with a card more dedicated and/or focused to our theme. Bloom Tender ramps us and can help us cast bigger spells and seems like it's a better fit to the concentration of our deck.

What if we add Strionic Resonator instead of Hydra's Growth?

I am stubborn when it comes to auras. The threat of a 2-for-1 looms large whenever an aura is cast. Additionally, with respect to Hydra's Growth, we don't reap the major benefits of this spell until the beginning of our upkeep. This allows each opponent an opportunity to remove it with instant-speed and sorcery-speed spells before we can double the +1 +1 counters on our creature. For the sake of comparison, when we cast Pemmin's Aura targeting Zaxara, the Exemplary, the threat of a 2-for-1 exists at instant-speed only. If left unchecked, the payoff is enormous and most likely game-winning. I don't sense the same level of power from Hydra's Growth. Strionic Resonator interacts favorably with multiple spells in our deck and presents greater versatility than Hydra's Growth. As Hydra's Growth enchants one creature, Strionic Resonator synergizes powerfully with numerous cards in our deck.

What if we add Kalonian Hydra instead of Herald of Secret Streams?

Open Into Wonder is in our deck already and provides our creatures unblockability (owning it!) for a turn, and Herald of Secret Streams makes creatures we control with +1 +1 counters on them unblockable. This type of redundancy is favorable. However, if this is the last creature we're planning to add to our deck, I think perhaps we go in a different direction and add a previously suggested creature, like Kalonian Hydra. How about exchanging one potential win condition for another?

I do not have available copies of Nyxbloom Ancient or Mana Crypt. When copies become available they will be added to our deck. We'll find a way to make it work! These are powerful spells and would serve us well.

So that's 19 spells added to our deck list! Awesome!! There are, at most, five more spells we can include.

As for our lands, after we solidify and complete our list of spells, we'll check back and construct the land base.

Great suggestions! Thank you again and keep 'em comin;!!

Alright then. I shan't pester you. If you wish for trample, Nylea does so whiles also being an effective use of mana.

Hynx Appreciate the tips, but I don't think you got the point of the deck. It isn't to ramp and hard cast the big boys. It runs low to the ground and quick with aggro play until it has enough ramp to drop a big creature or preferably Primal Surge to get the entire deck(or as much of it as I choose) onto the battle field. While Elvish Piper wouldn't be a bad test run in place of Bow of Nylea or Nylea, God of the Hunt. Unfortunately I don't really have much use for the instants you recommended as protection since they would definitely fizzle out Primal Surge if cast much sooner than intended in exchange for saving many dorks that I don't really care about. Dosan the Falling Leaf could be a decent preventative measure, but mostly I rely on Asceticism to protect my board. Thank you for the suggestions!
