Nylea's Presence Discussion

StopShot on Building a kitchentable Magic deck …

Rith's Grove or Ash Barrens provides great mana fixing. Let's say you don't have white, but your hand has a lot of white spells. Either of those lands ensures you get a white source untapped the turn you draw it. Abundant Growth is another valuable card as it provides a permanent source of color fixing and you draw a card off of it meaning it won't take away too much from your strategy of cats and dogs.

As for creatures I'd recommend Bolt Hound over Zodiac Dog. Same cost and stats, but Mountainwalk is sort of an outdated keyword and Bolt Hound effectively pumps all of the cats and dogs. If you'd rather keep Zodiac Dog for artwork then a good mana-fixer would be Lush Growth as it gives you all three of your deck's colors or if you don't need it for color-fixing you could put it on one of your opponent's lands effectively making the dog unblockable against non-red decks. I would still advocate Abundant Growth over Lush Growth just for the card draw as that's better than the small scale interaction. If you want a card that can do both effects there's Nylea's Presence, but that card costs one more mana than either card. Personally, I'd advise Bolt Hound and Abundant Growth but you do have other options if you'd rather deviate from that.

The deck also feels like it has a lack of cats. I think a Pride Sovereign would do wonders to boost the deck's cats without taking away too much from the dogs. I think you could remove a Zodiac Dog and a Release the Dogs to fit two in. Exert is a bit of an unconventional ability but you can keep track by putting a marker on it and removing the marker on upkeep instead of untapping it.

Polaris on Urban Utopia compared to Nylea's …

To clarify one thing first: Nylea's Presence gives all basic land types but does not make the card a basic land. Similar to how Ketria Triome is an Forest Island Mountain, a land enchanted by Nylea's Presence will be a Forest Island Mountain Plains Swamp in addition to its other types.

To answer your main question: most of the time this won't matter, but if you have cards that care about having certain land types (such as Evasive Action or Corrupt, it will count for those. If neither player has cards that care about basic land types, though, Nylea's Presence and Urban Utopia will function almost identically.

What is the difference between Nylea's Presence and Urban Utopia? Does the fact that it makes the card all basic lands better than if the enchanted land simply said 'tap for any color'? Generally basic lands are less likely to be removed from the game, no?

psionictemplar on Domain, is it good enough?

Disclaimer: I do not play a lot of pauper so take this with a grain of salt as well.

I think domain has playable cards, but they need to be a supplement to another strategy. My thoughts lead me to think of a landfall strategy where the "domain" can be built over time with things like Harrow which allow you to apply pressure and set things up simultaneously. Nylea's Presence could be included as a supporting cantrip/ psuedo power-up but not the main focus.

fatalzintomyum on Domain, is it good enough?

Is domain OK in pauper? With Nylea's Presence, I think that you can get domain consistently by turn three, enabling large and threatening Matca Rioters and burning Tribal Flames, but I have not seen this deck anywhere, so I am just wondering if these cards are playable at all.

Here's my recommendations:

Running the Bicycle lands as well as the Shadow lands and Temples seems a bit much. Mana Confluence may be a better for fixing. The Tango lands are also not as good when you're running as few basics as you are. Prismatic Vista also grabs any of the basics you need for the time.

If you wanna go more token heavy then Shark Typhoon and Ominous Seas are both great token generators.

Enchantress's Presence is a good Enchantress effect that you're missing out.

Archetype of Imagination is also a good card to give your tokens evasion if necessary.

Another board wipe would be a good idea. Time Wipe, Supreme Verdict, or even Evacuation could be good. Not to mention more interaction and removal. Seal of Cleansing, Seal of Primordium and Consulate Crackdown are good VS artifacts/enchantments. Kenrith's Transformation, Darksteel Mutation and Imprisoned in the Moon are all good auras VS creatures.

Ground Seal is good yard hate.

For fixing, Abundant Growth can certainly help whilst also cantripping for you. Along similar lines, Abundant Growth is absolutely fine, though hardly stellar. Same with Nylea's Presence.

Boza on Zirconia, the Prismatic Palace

Besides the dryad and prismatic omen and Nylea's Presence, which are green, is there any other card with that effect outside of green? Plus, green cards and artifacts are the only ones which modify lands to use any color - Abundant Growth, Market Festival,etc.

Green is the only color able to modify the colors of mana lands produce.

Off to a nice start. I suggest bringing more focus to your deck... an easy way to do this is to go all in on the elf tribal and remove your non-elf creatures... Elvish Archdruid is really good to consider for a "win condition enabler" to generate tons of mana to pay Joraga Warcaller s kicker cost (you would want 4 of each if you did this).... ezuries ability is another great reason to want all that mana... another idea is to go combo route and use Elvish Champion with Nylea's Presence on your opponents land to give your an opponent a forest and then have unblockable elves.
