Ordeal of Nylea - Theros Spoiler

Ordeal of Nylea


  • Color: Green
  • Type: Enchantment - Aura
  • Rarity: Uncommon
  • Set:

Enchant creature

Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice Ordeal of Nylea.

When you sacrifice Ordeal of Nylea, search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.



  • Joshua McTiernan

    Delayed Farseek with three +1/+1 counters on a creature seems good!

    • David Herrera

      It’s more like Explosive Vegetation. This plus Strionic Resonator from M14 is silly ramp turn 4.

  • chris

    with all of the green cards that lets you get +1+1 counters you could potentially trigger this the turn after you drop it or faster if you have haste already (not likely, but still possible on turn 2 i think)

    • chris

      With the wording, “When you sacrifice ordeal” does that mean, if you have another way to sac it, say from someone targeting you with a spell that makes you sac a permanent, wouldn’t that mean that the final ability of the enchantment triggers if you choose to sac it?

      • Ben Ehren

        yes, but it also makes you sac it if it hits 3.

  • Ben Ehren

    this… THIS IS ALL THE THINGS MY DECK DOES!!!

  • Kevan Kramer

    A better version of ranger’s path if it goes off.

  • Leonardo Duarte

    The best ordeal.

  • james chapman

    If you are forced to sac a permanent (other than the 3 counters), will it trigger the land ramp?

    • Jacob Eggebeen

      Only if you sacrifice THIS permanent. If you sack the creature it is on, you DON’T get the ability.

  • Yusuke

    All you need is primeval bounty and a creature you control on the battle field. Then when you cast Ordeal, you get 3 counters on that creature, two basic lands, and gain 6 life out of just one card which costs only two mana.
