|Been demoted to 2nd favorite card :/|
Core: Darkheart Wanderer, Static Shock, Master of Elements, Rite of the Grimgaunt
Master of Elements and Static Shock are still the backbone of all the spells decks I love so much. Rite of the Grimgaunt is by far the best way to grow in N/T, and works well with the removal we have flying about. Match ups where removal is scarce can instantly lose to a well timed Rite, particularly against Mono-Uterra
Synergy Spells: Epidemic, Uranti Bolt, Lightning Spark, Fervent Assault
3 good removal that we are happy to see made free by Master of Elements and are also good when leveled. Fervent Assault provides a way to get an overgrown creature a clean hit, and also has great synergy with the majority of our creatures.
Synergy Creatures: Grimgaunt Predator, Rageborn Hellion, Grimgaunt Devourer
GGP sees a lot of play, particularly because we are playing a lot of removal and because his mobility means he's very potent. Grimgaunt Devourer is easily stopped, but a well timed GGD can often come onto the board as big a 9/7 and instantly be a huge threat.
Rageborn Hellion is a card I completely omitted from my Deckbuilding 101, and quite unfairly. He has a great body, he grows out of control quickly, and his high health make him hard to remove. Like GGD he mainly sees play when the situation is favorable, as in Rageborn Hellion comes into play and instantly grows out of control.
Support: Dreadbolt, Zimus
Playing N/T you don't have the elite removal of Botanimate or Metasculpt. Having a Dreadbolt that can be pulled out when you see things such as Everflame Phoenix or Brightsteel Gargoyle is very helpful, even if you end up trying to play catchup.
Likewise, when playing the mirror matchup against N/T Zimus the Undying is the biggest nuisance in the world. Often whoever plays more Zimus wins the matchup, so bring one and hope to draw him often. Oh, and he's not bad if you happen to play him in other matchups, but other plays are often just as lethal and are also relevant as level 1.
Potential Deck List:
Darkheart Wanderer x3
Static Shock x3
Master of Elements x3
Grimgaunt Predator x3
Rite of the Grimgaunt x3
Uranti Bolt x2
Lightning Spark x2
Fervent Assault x2
Rageborn Hellion x2
Grimgaunt Devourer x2
This is an incredibly spell heavy decklist, but for large majority of deals you get at least 2 creatures, or what you draw is very workable. If anything drop a Rite of the Grimgaunt. It will be much better relatively once N/T Shapers gets nerfed.
