Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This is a Choose One card which provides the player with two options: to permanently gain 2 Mana Crystals, or to draw 3 cards.

Gain 2 mana crystals[edit | edit source]

This option grants the druid 2 additional mana crystals. These mana crystals are permanent, and are full when they are granted. This means that choosing this option in effect costs only 3 mana, although it still requires 5 mana to play.

Most people never choose the "gain 2 mana crystals" option because it costs 5 mana crystals. However, the advantage gained in earlier rounds by advancing your mana progression is substantial.

Used in combination with Innervate and Wild Growth, choosing this option can allow the druid to very quickly expand their mana pool, albeit it at the cost of other action. In ideal circumstances, the druid can play Innervate x 2 followed by Nourish on their first turn, and Wild Growth x 2 on their second turn, allowing the druid to arrive at the start of their third turn with 7 mana crystals.

However, as well as relying on a very unlikely sequence of cards, keep in mind that the above strategy will empty your hand and give you no board presence. This will likely leave you taking damage and relying on quickly drawing something useful in order to make up for lost time and board control. Building a deck around such an unlikely amount of cards early in the game is not recommended: Astral Communion achieves much the same result.

Draw 3 cards[edit | edit source]

This option is much simpler: draw 3 cards. This is a powerful card draw effect, and can be very useful at any stage of the game.
