Amonkhet Brews, pt. 8 – Nissa Energy Ramp

No [card]Elven Mystic[/card] available, but that part of Standard seems to be permanently over. However, there is several fairly efficient manaproducers in the format, like [card]Servant of the Conduit[/card] and [card]Rishkar, Peema Renegade[/card] and then there’s these two:

There’s also [card]Kiora, Master of the Depths[/card], which might work, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

In the current meta, ramp might even work, because removal like [card]Harnessed Lightning[/card], [card]Fatal Push[/card] and [card]Grasp of Darkness[/card] don’t kill most big creatures. We might also want to avoid artifacts here.

So, what do we ramp into?

Here’s a few ideas:

[draft]Ridgescale Tusker
Verdurous Gearhulk
Aethertide Whale
Bristling Hydra
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
Tireless Tracker
Ulvenwald Hydra
Rhonas the Indomitable
Elder Deep-Fiend[/draft]

Since there’s already a beginning of a energy theme, we might do that as well.

[draft]Attune with Aether
Longtusk Cub
Rogue Refiner[/draft]

… and finally, [card]Nissa, Steward of Elements[/card].

    • I think the more pertinent question is whether this deck is really good at all.

      If you are worried about a learning curve, the deck should be fine. Nissa is the only card that requires complicated decisions and planning. Just remember to keep the energy available for the Bristling Hydra and I think you’ll be fine.
