Nissa of Shadowed Boughs is a green and black Planeswalker card that has a Landfall ability that lets you put a loyalty counter every time a land enters the battlefield under your control. It comes into play with 4 loyalty, and can turn a land into a 3/3 with Haste and Menace until end of turn. Its -5 ability lets you play a creature card with converted mana cost less than or equal to the number of lands you control from your graveyard or your hand onto the battlefield.
