Oath of Nissa ---> Exploration
Oath of Nissa tends to be quite underwhelming in my deck except for the occasional Venser chain. I tested e ploration and find that it is good thruout the course of the game since i am focused on ramping early and i have a tendency to have man card draws in midlate game.
I'm not sure about Eploration. Its great in the starting hand but you need pretty consistent draw to keep it going. Should this be a rock? I'd be willing to try it again but last time I tried it I cut it after a few games.
Phyrexian Arena ---> Unfulfilled Dreams
Unfulfilled Desire acts as a pseudo Necropotence. I find that card quality is much more important than card quantity. It helps to filter the deck much quicker to find a mass removal answer. The greatest use of this card i find is that it acts like a instant speed demonic tutor at the cost of 1 life/mana/card for the one mana tutors the deck plays. Great if you need an answer urgently.
Interesting card. I'm very close to cutting Phyrexian Arena because its too slow. I was thinking of trying Mystic Remora instead. I might also give this card a shot.
Oath Of Gideon ---> Ajani Steadfast
Ajani Steadfast seems to have more value than Oath of Gideon at a additional cost of 1mana and provides a important source of lifegain in lategame via sliverqueen beatdown, especially so since i tend to take much damage from mana crypt/Necropotence/Ancient tomb.
Steadfast has been amazing for me. All of his modes are relevant. He's a little bit awkward when he's alone on the board tho. I'm not a big fan of the Oaths as they don't provide a whole lot of value unless you play them early.
Beast within ----> Anguish unmaking
Loss of 3 life is better than giving a 3/3 beast to opponent.
I came to the exact same conclusion.
Kiora the crashing wave ----> Nahiri
Nahiri starts off with a higher loyalty counter and her ability to exile problematic enchanments and synergy with Tamiyos and Ral Zarek warrants her a spot.her +2 filter is great to uptick her fast.
I don't like both TBH. Kiora does not provide much value for 4 mana unless she sticks. She can't ult with doubling season... Nahiri is also awkward. The card quality is quite high in this deck so discarding a card is not always possible. I already have this issue with Dack Fayden sometimes. 4 mana to exile something is a lot. Might has well just run Utter End. Her ult is a complete fizzle in this deck as in it does not win you the game at all.
Jokulhapps ----> Merciless eviction
I am taking out my win condition to try merciless eviction for more interaction. Merciless evction exiles creatures and planeswalkers which helps in reanimator strageies.Jokulhapps tend to hit many of my artifact ramps even though it is much more effective to win in multiplayer settings. I think i will play both in competitve edh plays though.
I like both. Evition is great if you play in a graveyard heavy meta.
Some cards i am still considering are Oath of Gideon, lethal vapours (only in 1v1), Daretti the scrap savant ( as i play many artifacts and his filtering is good), throne of geth, ensnaring bridge ( both can be tutored by tezzert and Moat.
I am thinking of trying out Chrome Mox/ Mox Diamond/Utopia sprawl/Wild growth for more explosive play. Any feedbacks for my current decklist is appreciated. Thanks!
I will be adding Lethal Vapors to my list soon as a test. I will report back later. I had Ensnaring Bridge for a while and it only prevents lethal swings (Cratehoof). It does not prevent cards like Trygon Predator from attacking or anything with power 3 or less to kill your planes. It does not really advance our gameplan and is a weird political tool. Out of the fast mana cards I like Mox Diamond more because in my current decklist I only have 14 green mana symbols, 5 of those being garruks. Yours seem also green light. The extra fixing is good.
I'd play Contagion Engine over Throne of Geth even if it has a higher CMC. The value it generates is amazing. It can be tutored by Tezzeret off Doubling Season too. It could give you a good reason to ult Nahiri. If you look at your planeswalker list, a lot of them ult after 3 +1 activations. I've gotten a lot of ults after playing a planes, doing the +1 and then next turn drop Contagion, Proliferate twice into the ult. Its also good defense if you can activate it the same turn its played (-3/-3 gets rid of a lot of creatures).
