Card Me: Nylea, God of the Hunt

Nylea, God of the Hunt has been a high-impact card for me in Magic: The Gathering.
Card Name: Nylea, God of the Hunt
Mana Cost: 3Green

Converted Mana Cost: 4
Types: Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
Card Text: Indestructible
As long as your devotion to green is less than five, Nylea isn’t a creature. (Each Green in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to green.)
Other creatures you control have trample.
3Green: Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
P/T: 6 / 6
Expansion: Theros (Mythic Rare) Theros
Rarity: Mythic Rare
I primarily play Standard in Magic, which meant I lost a lot of vital cards in my previous deck when cards got rotated out of the format.One important element I needed as a Green player was to find ways to grant trample to my creatures. No matter how powerful my creatures were, trample proved necessary to deal chipping damage to my opponent to win more consistently. Otherwise, I would just run into random walls that prevented my creatures from being useful.

With Nylea, I am capable of granting my other creatures trample with her presence out in play. If I can build up enough devotion, I end up with a 6/6, indestructible creature for combat purposes. Not to mention, the extra bonus of granting a target creature +2/2 is a decent option for a mana sink.

I just love having Nylea in my deck. It’s a really slick card, especially when paired up with her weapon: Bow of Nylea.
