Oath of Nissa

Legendary Enchantment

When Oath of Nissa enters the battlefield, look at the top three cards of your library. you may reveal a creature, land or planeswalker card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

You may spend mana as though it were mana of any colour to cast planeswalker spells.

Oath of Nissa Discussion

Deruvid on Too Many Elves on the Shelf

Couple suggestions.

  1. You're already at 4 Lead the Stampede , plus a Harmonize and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip for card draw and selection. I'd either cut all 4 Summoner's Pact or all 4 Elvish Harbinger to lower your deck size back towards 60.

  2. Your land count is a tad low, imo, especially because you're only running 8 1-drop accelerators. I recommend swapping out Lead the Stampede for either Winding Way or Oath of Nissa to help smooth land draws.

Tuesday Night Modern 2-2

2-1 Infect Lost first game to being greedy and not leaving a blocker. Second game i Genesis Hydra choosing a Bird of Paradise for a blocker, and swing for lethal. Third game opponent went all in on Inkmoth Nexus turn 3 Primal Command shuffled the threat into the library.

2-0 Goblins Primal Command a lifesaver, was able to Karn, the Great Creator for a Trinisphere then second game down to one life Primal back enough life to fetch shock to be able to cast my Freed from the Real combo and search for Genesis Hydra for 100, play Karn, and tutor up Walking Ballista for lethal.

1-2 Humans First game top decked combo win before lethal attack. Second game aggro'd out, third game my opponent wrecked me top decking sideboard Plague Engineer naming Dryad and taking down all 3 of my mana dorks.

0-2 Burn Burned out turn 3 on both games...

Deck not fast enough. Consistent to turn 4 or 5, not working good enough for modern i'm afraid. Promising shell, seems like it needs another couple of support cards... Oath of Nissa not being able to choose enchantment is a real bummer.

Die4Dethklok on Oath of Tron

There was 2 Ajani's originally. I came to the same realization, however, there are fringe scenarios where Ajani is very good. One downtick on Ajani allows Bolas and Ugin to ult after a single uptick each, and Garruk and Elspeth make tokens.

That is, of course, a 'win more' approach, since resolving Ugin, Bolas, Karn, or Elspeth is almost a guaranteed victory anyway. I might swap him out for a new walker. The deck hasn't been updated for quite some time. Karn, the Great Creator would be an obvious choice, but the deck as a whole was only FNM level competitive in 2016 / 2017. Now I'm not so sure, and putting the Karn / Lattice combo in would take away from the identity of the deck too much.

On the other hand, I haven't playtested with the London Mulligan yet, which could increase the consistency of the deck. At the very least, it should allow a start that contains a Tron land, a green source and an Oath of Nissa .

The Oaths are good as a budget options with Planeswalkers: Oath of Nissa , Oath of Liliana and Oath of Jace . Oath of Nissa can help to color fix for Planeswalkers, good with a budget Sultai manabase. Grateful Apparition can be another repeatable source of no mana cost proliferate. Pir, Imaginative Rascal is a less expensive price Doubling Season effect.

Pernicious Deed is powerful because it destroys all nonland permanents except Planeswalkers equal or less than the amount of X you pay. Spore Frog can be a repeatable Fog which is good to protect Planeswalkers. Vessel of Nascency is a budget way to repeatedly try to find a Planeswalker and put it into your hand while also filling your graveyard for Muldrotha. Kaya's Ghostform can reanimate when the enchanted Planeswalker/creature dies or is exiled. Interplanar Beacon is more budget color fixing for Planeswalkers.

Alrighty roo, let's spend 10 minutes fixing your deck


Aluren + Cloudstone Curio + any 2 legends 3 CMC or below = draw your deck.

Don't run Reap . It depends on opponents board state to function, meaning it is unreliable.

You are running Snow-Covered Forest but don't have Mouth of Ronom slotted. Low opportunity cost land that allows mono G to have a targeted creature nuke.

Add Prismatic Vista for increased deckthinning.

There are a whole host of other legendary cards you can be running that are 3 CMC or less. Replace any combat oriented or random buff artifacts/creature (most of the 2/3/4 CMC legendary artifacts, and also Skyship Weatherlight) with some of the following

Voltaic Key works with Paradox Engine and Sensei's Divining Top to draw deck. You already slot the other two. Key also lets you ramp or get value from other artifacts.

Inventors' Fair opens many winning lines from many board states, usually by fetching Paradox. Expedition Map lets you get to Inventors' Fair more often.

You should really up creature tutor density, and add some value targets. Eldritch Evolution Chord of Calling Finale of Devastation Natural Order Time of Need Woodland Bellower Summoner's Pact Uncage the Menagerie Weird Harvest

Adding in value creatures that can be grabbed from tutors gives you a far greater chance to escape from nasty artifacts/enchantments Caustic Caterpillar Reclamation Sage Manglehorn

Burgeoning Mirri's Guile Earthcraft and Oath of Nissa have far less value here than you think. I would cut them all, except possibly Earthcraft due to how well it works with Paradox engine. You should add Squirrel Nest as an alternate wincon if you keep it.

Why are you running Strip Mine ? You run no other stax pieces and no land recursion.

opusprime15 on Planeswalker Commander Ranks List

You should consider the colors that the Planeswalkers give you color identity-wise. I personally think that just giving you 3 colors alone should be enough for all of the Nicol Bolas cards to go up to playable level. I would also consider potentially ranking some commanders lower due to their colors. Chandra, Torch of Defiance while powerful in a vacuum, restricts you to mono-red which is very negative. You should also consider the oath cycle that interacts with planeswalkers. generally, blue/white planeswalkers will be better because of Oath of Teferi and green because of Oath of Nissa in a casual format
