Ordeal of Nylea

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice this.

When you sacrifice this, search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

the thing about Harrow is that lands come in untapped, which means you go from 3 tapped to 2 tapped and 2 untapped - which is pretty nice, since then you can cast a creature and whatnot. extremely situational...you can use it to sacrifice a land that's getting destroyed anyway :D

In another deck, i liked using Talara's Battalion with it. There's also Cultivate or Field of Ruin which might also work (but if they don't have a non basic land it works as a ramp for the enemy too...) and adds a bit of land removal.

Maybe Ordeal of Nylea is not that bad...let me know what you find out (for some reason i read you had already tried it out, mb).

How has Ordeal of Nylea worked for you? I've seen it on another deck but someone else commented on its speed - I mean, wouldn't something like Caravan Vigil be better at that point, since you'd be getting counters with other means anyway? Alternatively, people tell me it's trash, but Harrow basically costs 1 and puts you still one land ahead.

Drestlin - Ya, I saw Tezzeret's Gambit this morning and immediately added it to my cart as that it the essence of what I need in my deck. Throw out some extra +1/+1's AND draw cards...perfection!

Let me know how Huatli's Raptor works for you. I do love how for only 2 mana you get a 2/3 creature and get to proliferate. Compare that to like Basri's Solidarity and it looks really good. I just wish you could activate it more than once but that would be asking a lot from a 2 CMC card that is also a creature with decent initial stats and vigilance.

You are not wrong about Evolution Sage. I feel like it would work in both our decks but you would not be maximizing its ability. We are both running 3xEnter the Unknown but I feel like I would want to get some copies of Ordeal of Nylea to get some additional ramping in the deck and built it more around Evolution Sage to really make her worth adding. Lately I feel like I am drawing >50% of my lands each game so it seemed like a great ideal at the time!

Love the deck and the explanation!

I notice you arent super land ramp which is awesome! So, since we like plus one counters, AND also get lands, you can swap the Cultivate for an Ordeal of Nylea

I really like Ordeal of Nylea in this. Makes me think of putting it in my korvold deck and maybe my Animar, Soul of Elements .

Some thoughts. I think you want to build this as an aggro stompy deck - as it’ll want to close the game out early.

From a competitive modern standpoint, i don’t think the following cards you’re running are worth it:

  • Inscription of Abundance is kindof good but maybe better as a sideboard option against decks where you need to fight creatures to death. I think this mostly just doesn’t get enough value.

  • Selesnya Charm doesn’t do enough for you.

  • Inspiring Call gets you good card draw, but doesn’t apply pressure, and will likely give your opponent enough breathing room to stabilise

  • Incubation / Incongruity isnt good imo, you want to be applying pressure every turn in the form of creatures.

  • Tezzeret's Gambit is again, useful, but slow. I don’t think its worth it in this build.

  • Hardened Scales i don’t think fits here, just cause its not a creature that can swing for damage.

  • Ordeal of Nylea ... if it’s not Rancor it ain’t worth running. Auras are generally bad cause they turn your opponents killspells into bombs. Play Rancor instead cause you get it back.

  • Ajani, the Greathearted it waaay too slow to be useful.

I think what you want is more creatures that can threaten the opponent, as well as trample in the form of Rancor , and a quick-finish combat trick in the form of Aspect of the Hydra

Personally, I think voltron strategies are some of the most cost effective for a beginning budget player.

A commander like Skullbriar, the Walking Grave can be tuned to be competitive at any table and does especially well in duels.

A lot of his best cards like Evolutionary Escalation Feast on the Fallen Hydra's Growth Ordeal of Nylea Biogenic UpgradeSoul's Might Ring of Kalonia FireshriekerWinding Constrictor Corpsejack Menace and many others are cheap.

My deck is not budget, but you could replace the most expensive 30 cards with budget friendly alternatives and still have a deck that stomps most tables. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/15-09-20-skullbriar-the-walking-grave/
