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.
