Nylea's Colossus Discussion

SpammyV on Win Con for Gruul Enchantress?

1 month ago

On-topic for what you're planning, you can use Ancestral Mask and Nylea's Colossus to get something really big before you rumble in. There's also passive damage you can stack up with Overabundance , Mana Barbs, Sulfuric Vortex , Court of Ire , et cetera to whittle people down. Sandwurm Convergence makes a lot of beef. It's mana intensive but Pyrohemia and Rite of Passage means you can have a thing that lives while you keep pinging everything. There's also the aforementioned Helix Pinnacle if you're looking at having a lot of mana.

Of course, if you think some thing demand a more personal touch, you could slam a Form of the Dragon and off someone yourself.

Sorry I'm a year late SFCD, but I almost always tutor for an enchantress to draw more cards or protect the ones I already have. Nylea's Colossus and Nylea herself are good, but cater more towards creatures which I steered away from since adding more value creatures I found makes the enchantment engine less seamless. Rancor I also tried, but same issue with it not doing much without the right creatures. I personally prefer Aspect of Mongoose .

Looks like a super fun, casual deck! Nice brew, though I would cut back on the creature count to make room for more enchantments. Kruphix, God of Horizons, Satyr Enchanter, Herald of the Pantheon, Alseid of Life's Bounty, and Nylea's Colossus are all good cards, but they're either redundant or are goodstuff cards that have other enchantment applications (Though you may want to consider cutting other, as the cards mentioned are powerhouses. Just a couple suggestions). Good build, I like where it's headed

It looks like the spoilers that I put the non-Boros giant suggestions aren't working. So weird. I'll try to reconstruct what I suggested.

So I know you had your heart set on Brion as your commander, but I wanted to list all the good giants with , and in their colors, as there are a bunch that are excellent. Brion doesn't bring much to the giant-tribal table other than a small-ish lifelinking Giant body and occasional face-damage. You may want to use Iroas, God of Victory or Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas as your commander if you're dead-set on staying Boros colors. If the idea of fully exploring Giants in Magic's history is the goal, and being the most Giant-y deck, having more colors or all five colors will give you a greater creature spread and significantly help with the deck's function.

Arbor Colossus - great rate! Worth considering

Beanstalk Giant - ramp AND a giant body! Worth considering

Earthshaker Giant - Worth considering

Garenbrig Paladin - playable, but probably wouldn't make the cut in a five-color deck

Gorm the Great - interesting choice, and nice at four mana, but probably not worth a slot

Marshdrinker Giant - odd removal piece.

Nylea's Colossus - good effect even without a ton of enchantment support. Worth considering

Outland Colossus - Worth considering

Rampart Smasher - watch out, Knights! Probably wouldn't make the cut

Skyshroud Troll - Regeneration is always nice, but the stats aren't great

Sunder Shaman - fucking awesome giant. One of the best reasons to consider running Green cards. Can't recommend enough.

Swarmborn Giant - kinda a weird one, but interesting nonetheless

Towering Titan - potentially awesome! Worth considering

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath - fucking incredible. Pretend you're terrorizing standard! That pricetag though :(

Valleymaker - very interesting utility. Potentially worth considering, but might not make the cut in a five-color deck.

Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig - Absolutely stellar Giant. three on-color might be hard to swing in a five-color deck, although any deck would probably lean Green due to ramp and utility. Very much worth considering.

Frost Titan - outstanding giant. One excellent reason to run Blue. Highly recommended, like all the titans. Too bad Prime-Time is banned! (Primeval Titan)

Galecaster Colossus - extremely strong Giant. better in Wizard-tribal decks, but is still really good on its own.

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - A real powerhouse. Highly recommended

Ruhan of the Fomori - Another excellent giant. Highly recommended

Skaab Goliath - Pretty decent. Might not make the cut in 5-color but worth considering]

Thryx, the Sudden Storm - Incredible! Ramp AND a flying body. A perfect reason to run Blue. Highly recommended

Bartel Runeaxe - this is a giant. Probably only worth running for the memes. Expensive too. A piece of Giant Magic history though.

Doomwake Giant - Pretty decent even without Enchantment support--lots of one-toughness support creatures out there.

Erebos's Titan - slightly recursive threat. Decent

Grave Titan - an utter powerhouse. One of the best giants. Highly recommended

Grixis Slavedriver - decent for a common. Probably not quite worth a slot.

Helldozer - pretty good! Three on-color might be hard but the payoff is huuuge.

Knight of the Last Breath - leaving behind blockers is pretty good. (Mana)-expensive though.

Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger - Pretend you're terrorizing Standard!! Incredible Giant, but expensive.

Necrosavant - recursive creature, but you probably don't want to be sacrificing giants

Nightfire Giant - could be decent utility. Not the strongest giant but worth looking at

Tithebearer Giant - good for a common I suppose!


So as you can see, there are a bunch of fantastic Giants outside of Red and White colors. The stand-outs on a budget are:

Arbor Colossus - Beanstalk Giant - Earthshaker Giant - Outland Colossus - Sunder Shaman - Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig - Frost Titan - Ruhan of the Fomori - Thryx, the Sudden Storm - Helldozer

I should have a Frost Titan, Arbor Colossus, and Outland Colossus for trade.


Once you have the deck for a while, snagging Grave Titan - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger - Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath- Towering Titan as upgrades would be well-worth it.

Optimator on Giant's Deck

Some more giants that are worth considering:

Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas - Kalemne is bae, but I'm biased.

Realm-Cloaked Giant - this card is mandatory.

Hundred-Handed One

Quarry Colossus - this one is passable.

Grasping Giant - I love this one--just put it in my Giant deck

Oathsworn Giant - Good utility if you are wanting to swing out every turn

Swathcutter Giant - I actually kinda like this one a lot.

Sentinel of the Eternal Watch -

Taurean Mauler - one of the best giants, sadly

Bonecrusher Giant - pretend you're terrorizing Standard!

Arbiter of Knollridge - gimmicky but fun.

Boldwyr Intimidator - I have one in my Warrior deck. Very funny card. Not exactly a powerhouse at 7CMC but the unblockable aspect could win a game here and there.

Siegebreaker Giant - Pretty good for 5 mana IMO

Non-Boros Giants Show

One thing that's tricky with Giants is that they are traditionally commons and uncommons; usually rare large red creatures are Dragons. As such, many giants are pretty low-impact or poor deals for their mana (think of the classic Hill Giant). There are enough good ones to fill out a deck, though, but you gotta hunt for them.

Hii!! love your idea of Genju of the Realm commander!! I love the "illegal" commanders, a new whole world of posibilities, I have a illegal Nephilim commander deck :)

Just to give some ideas to the Genju of the Realm 's deck in case you build it with that card as your commander. I'd be great to kill people with commander damage! so, to achieve that asap you can use some double strike combat tricks and extra-combat pashes, like: Nantuko Mentor , Overwhelming Stampede , Pathbreaker Ibex , Nylea's Colossus , World at War , Seize the Day , Scourge of the Throne , Berserk , Blood Mist , Savage Beating , Hadana's Climb  Flip when it's flipped, Psychotic Fury , Moraug, Fury of Akoum , Aggravated Assault , Relentless Assault and more...

I found super-epic to kill your opp hitting them with ur massive land-commander!!

Crow-Umbra on Twice the Enchantments, Twice the Fun

I think your deck has a solid start, but could benefit from having a few more enchantments. Personally, I think you could cut all of your artifacts, or at least the ramp artifacts, and include a few more enchantments like Weirding Wood, Wolfwillow Haven, Utopia Sprawl, or Unbridled Growth.

I'm not sure what your budget is like, but a few really helpful Auras are Rancor, Aspect of Mongoose, and Whip Silk, since they can all be replayed multiple times. Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea can both be helpful and pop-off early since your creatures will likely already have counters on them.

Simic Sky Swallower is okay as a beefy body, but can't be enchanted. You might be better off with something like Nylea's Colossus or Prime Speaker Zegana, both of which synergize with enchantments & counters.

If you're interested, check out my Eutropia deck, WAP- Wet Ass +1/+1 Counters. I built mine more around +1/+1 counter synergies with Auras.

Toxicology on Thrun, Voljin's Chosen

As an enchantment deck, I think Might of Oaks and Giant Growth can be replaced with an enchantment that is equal, if not superior, like Armor of Thorns or Hydra's Growth. I think your Natural Connection has better alternatives, there's far better spell based ramp, and you should use an enchantment, like Sheltered Aerie.

Cool deck though! Definitely like Sight of the Scalelords and Oath of the Ancient Wood. Have you considered Nylea's Colossus? You have far more ramp than my deck does, so it could be an absolute all-star in here.
