Combos with itself. Use the ramp to cast something color intensive and then use that to go ham.

This is actually the closest to a re-imagining of the old Gaea's Cradle... In most circumstances it will probably generate less mana, but cards like Elvish Archdruid will count for 2 instead of 1, and this will also get bonuses from green enchantments where the Cradle wouldn't.

Of course, it works in other colors, but Green and White will probably see the most benefit from it.

Besides giving colors like blue and white some better mana acceleration without having to splash in some cases, i really like the interaction with the new legends rules.

play one, usue it, obviously.

now consider what you'd do normally if you drew another legendary land before.

nope. now use it, play the second, sacrifice the first, use the second to ramp again.

i like anything legendary that can combo with itself. with help of course.

This card is just beautiful in mono-standard. I see people running 2-ofs, but I see no reason to not run 4 instead - it really doesn't hurt to have a spare in the midgame, because you can either replace it if it gets broken, or drop a second one to ramp into from the first for massive stockpiles of mana.

What I especially love is that (and please correct me if I'm wrong) this is a mana ability, so your opponent can't respond to you by doom-blading your Boros Reckoner or something to drain you of your mana.

And it works beautifully with Burning-Tree Emissary too!

There is always a Nyx assassin.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Knight of the Reliquary = the Knights who say, "Nyx".

I love this land, am currently using it in my green-blue legacy enchantress deck.
I do have a question though. If i put a wild growth on nykthos and I use the second (mana-?)ability, does wild growth make an extra green mana or not? I'm not sure if this counts as "tapping for mana"...

After having this opening sequence at an FNM, I'm sold on this card.

T1 Forest, Elvish Mystic
T2 Nykthos, Burning-Tree Emissary, Burning-Tree Emissary, bestow Boon Satyr on one of the Emissaries
T3 Garruk, Caller of Beasts... and swing for six!
