With its Indestructibility and ability to make creature spells cost 1 less to play, this could be a solid sideboard card against control, Nylea can help you gain card advantage with its activated ability.

This card is a good common in Limited format, and it lets you put cards to your graveyard to help you use the Escape mechanic.

Wrath of Storm

Wrath of Storm deals 4 damage to each creature and planeswalker.

This card reminds me of "Languish" but better against Planeswalkers since it can hit them. It will at least be playable in Standard format.

Chained guardian can't attack unless you control another creature with power 4 or greater.

This card will probably see play in aggressive red/green beatdown decks with "Klothys, God of Destiny".
