Abzan Falconer Discussion

HalbrechtHalbrecht on Kenrith +1/+1 Counters/Life

Hey, thanks for the +1 on my deck! I +1'ed you back. :)

A couple thoughts: First, I suggest that you more clearly define what you mean by budget, as it's different for everyone. Some people mean no one card being over a dollar, some mean nothing over $10, while others are fine buying one $50 card as long as the total budget for the deck isn't more than $100, etc.

On that note, you currently have 3 creatures — Abzan Falconer , Sapphire Drake , and Skatewing Spy — that grant flying. Since this buff doesn't stack, it would feel bad to draw more than one at a time. Instead, I'd recommend keeping just one of them (probably the Falconer, as he's the most cost-efficient) and replacing the other two with creature tutors, such as Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling . I consider both of those budget, at about $5 to $7 each (T/O pricing puts them higher than that, but they can be found on TCGPlayer for that price). These essentially become copies 2 and 3 of ALL your creatures, so you can go grab whatever team-wide buff is most relevant at the time — ramp from Rishkar, trample from Zegana, etc.

I have replaced Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver , which had three effects; first, it lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3,65 to 3,63, which is nice; second, it improved the balance of colors in the deck, and; third, it proves an additional source of proliferation for the deck.

bushido_man96, in that case, I shall replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver .

I understand the importance of drawing cards, but I am not certain what I could remove, since I have spent so much time improving this deck; I need to use it extensively if I am to determine if it needs to be improved in any areas.

bushido_man96, I did have both Steady Progress and Tezzeret's Gambit in this deck, but I replaced them with repeatable sources of proliferate, and this deck does still have both Fathom Mage and Temple Bell , which are only two cards, but I cannot afford to remove any cards that contribute to the central theme of this deck.

Also, do you believe that I can afford to replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver ? I already removed Abzan Battle Priest in favor of Crystalline Crawler , so I supposed that I could do the same for the falconer; Herald of Secret Streams and Mer-Ek Nightblade , however, are too good to remove, so I am keeping them in this deck.

RNR_Gaming, what about removing Abzan Falconer in favor of Merfolk Skydiver ? Is the falcon really that great of a card for this deck?

Hey, I don't think you need to play Guildpact Informant , Merfolk Skydiver or Abzan Falconer . You could cut all three as there's better cards that would help your deck.

Consider Eladamri's Call ? It's budget and one of the best creature tutors in Commander. Instead of playing subpar creatures for redundancy play an instant that can get you any creature into your hand? Consider Sage of Hours ? It's a creature to want to put counters on an proliferate especially with Forgotten Ancient .

DemonDragonJ on Guildpact Informant or Merfolk Skydiver?

The newest debate that I am considering for my Atraxa EDH deck is whether or not I should replace Guildpact Informant with Merfolk Skydiver . The skydiver has a lower converted mana cost and can also immediately make itself or another creature more powerful, but its proliferate ability requires a significant investment of mana, which is the main focus of my deliberation.

On one hand, the informant’s ability requires no mana, but triggers only during combat, whereas, on the other hand, the skydiver’s ability can be used at any time, but requires mana to use. Also, each of those creatures has redundancy with other cards in my deck; the informant has redundancy with Thrummingbird , Grateful Apparition , Sword of Truth and Justice , Kalonian Hydra , and Archangel of Thune in that each of those cards has a triggered ability that places counters on creatures. If I were to put the skydiver in the deck, it would have redundancy with Viral Drake , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Karn's Bastion , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , and Gavony Township in that each of those cards has an activated ability that places counters on creatures.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Guildpact Informant with Merfolk Skydiver ?

Actually, I could alternatively replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver , because, as nice as the falconer is, it does not really contribute to the overall theme of the deck and having another source of proliferation is better than giving all of my creatures flying, especially since a large number of creatures in this deck already have flying, and I have two other cards in this deck that can grant all of my creatures flying. What does everyone say about that?

all of your lands enter tapped, which makes it kind of slow for the CMC of your creatures. to replace Stroke of Genius you could add Blue Sun's Zenith or Braingeyser . Herald of Anafenza is a token creator with outlast. Abzan Ascendancy puts counters on all your creatures to make them get the benefits of Abzan Battle Priest and Abzan Falconer . if you want more things with outlast that benefit all your creatures Ainok Bond-Kin , Mer-Ek Nightblade , Tuskguard Captain , Longshot Squad . those are options, not what will necessarily make your deck better.
