Nylea's Disciple Discussion

Hey, I ran a deck like this in standard, so a couple of things: 1) Walking Ballista is banned in pioneer, not sure why the site didn't flag your deck and

2) Swap out Nylea's Disciple for Setessan Petitioner . Costs one less for the same effect only a smaller creature, I've always wanted this card to be a little bit cheaper.

3) I used to run Setessan Tactics as my board wipe as getting the extra green to strive each time was not a hard thing to do at all, most of the time my entire board fights your board. I also ran Soul of New Phyrexia . I didn't have blue but was about to add it and put in Kruphix, God of Horizons . I had Nylea, God of the Hunt and Hydra Broodmaster . That guy was insane. I also used Karametra's Acolyte . Can't recall what else I had as this was years ago and I don't have the list. They added a ton of cards since then and Pioneer has a large card pool anyway. Good Luck

Small mana quibble: You probably want the full set of Stomping grounds, to just roundly get your mana to 90%+ odds of red when you need it. It's not totally free, but I think it's worthwhile and relatively low cost. ALSO, you can probably go down to 20 lands, between your huge quantity of dorks and Once.

I'm not sure how I feel about Xenagod? He's a big boi payoff that requires you to have a different big boi payoff, but very often you will only have 1 big boi.

I think the payoff ratio might be slightly off, even with your cantrip count. I count 7 payoff creatures, 1 payoff planeswalker, and the set of Nissa, Who Shakes the World as a pseudo payoff...they MIGHT get you there, but they're also around in large part to get more ramp. A few midsized payoffs that bridge the gap a little bit might be advisable. I might cut 1 Nissa, Xenagod, and the land for 3 Tireless Tracker . It might also be that you don't need the Voyaging Satyr , because of the nonbo with your leyline. With 10 rampers you have an 80% chance to have it in your opening hand, and Once is 66% to find a ramp creature on top of that.

I also might see if some Scavenging Ooze and Nylea's Disciple might find their way into your sideboard. I think agro deserves respect, and obviously scooze has additional utility. If you don't like disciple, Pulse of Murasa is also a good option, as it has play in control matchups too.

I’d swap out Sedge Scorpion for Hexdrinker , as it can grow to be something useful (i’m not too sure why you’re running the scorpion to begin with?).

Other creatures I think you should ditch are Nylea's Disciple and Reverent Hunter - these would both be better served as land and/or ramp creatures (20 land is very low for what you’re trying to do, even with the ramp I think you need 24ish)

Solidarity of Heroes feels like too much of a “win more” card to be useful. I think you should drop it.

Time to Feed just feels like a bad Prey Upon ??

There’s two recent cards that might be of interest to you: Gargos, Vicious Watcher and Unbound Flourishing .

Hi, punchbattle,

My suggestions pretty much all involve the Devotion mechanic from the Theros block. I'd suggest you have a look at Aspect of Hydra, Nylea's Disciple and Nylea, God of the Hunt the last two are probably more sideboard cards though. Outside of that Scavenging Ooze and Heroic Intervention would almost certainly be good fits and extra ramp Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl rarely goes wrong, though with Devotion you also have the option of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Hope that is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Nice little deck you have here +1.
A lot of devotion to green I see.
Have you considered these cards:
- Aspect of Hydra
- Karametra's Acolyte
- Nylea, God of the Hunt
- Nylea's Disciple
- Reverent Hunter ?

  1. 60$.

  2. Could you put in a couple Nylea's Disciple for anti-burn? Lead the Stampede is also pretty insane. Ripjaw raptor is good for card advantage and it has a butt that's hard to beat.

Khalni Hydra is a must have in this deck. Aspect of Hydra is also really good. Nylea's Disciple might have a good affect on this deck as well. Since you have Doubling Season instead of Parallel Lives then Reverent Hunter might be good for you.

@Chasmolinker Avatar of the Resolute is Garruk's Companion with more late game value. I think the third toughness on Kalonian Tusker to help evolve Experiment One's with Rancor and beat Dark Confidant/Snapcaster Mage is a little more valueable.

Nylea's Disciple is less versatile than Obstinate Baloth, and IMO less effective in the burn matchup, since Nylea's Disciple can be killed in response to its trigger for two less life, whereas Obstinate Baloth is beefier and can't be bolted.

Thank you for the suggestions
