Abzan Falconer Discussion

Bou on EDH Licia, Tribute for the Tribune

3 days ago

@ReignBeauxRida: The Outlast creatures would be so much better if you could put a +1/+1 on other creatures, as it is now they only put them on themselves. Abzan Falconer and Mer-Ek Nightblade would be interesting though! The other effects we already have.

@AkaAkuma: Thanks! Soldiers are definitely a good option, I toyed with the idea as well. Favor of the Mighty seems good but you have to keep in mind that protection also means we can't enchant or target her, so we can't give her more counters, the equips still work because they don't have a color.

Rest for the Weary looks pretty good, but you'd ideally want it if they blow up Licia and you need to recast her.. Sunspring Expedition might be good as well for the same reason, just wait a little with sacrificing until you need it. I'm still piecing together the heal spells so I'll put this in the maybeboard :). Ordeal of Heliod on Licia wouldn't work that well..

The problem with lifegain spells is that you need them to help you cast Licia. If she's already there, extra life doesn't really matter because just fighting with her can get you pretty much 10 life a turn. Add in all the other tools we have and you can easily get 100 life. Aetherflux Reservoir at that point, would just be mean hahaha

zephyr_chang Thanks for the advice! I'll be experimenting with 4 Experiment One to see if it works better than 4 Servant of the Scale. As good as Strangleroot Geist is I'm unsure where'd I'd be able to fit it in but I'll have a tinker and see what I can figure out. Abzan Falconer is great in this deck however when I played this deck I've found that having four often meant my hand often had one too many, that'll most likely just be due to the meta within my friend circle though.

I would go up to a full 4 Experiment One and add 4 Strangleroot Geist. A playset of Travel Preparations is also probably better than having 4 Increasing Savagery, since the latter's CMC is a bit high. 1 more Abzan Falconer would be good too since it is quite important in the deck. You can consider Scavenging Ooze too. It is a widely played green creature that has a lot of utility and can get counters on itself as well. Dromoka's Command also seems useful.

This is probably a budget issue, but Noble Hierarch instead of Birds of Paradise is an easy upgrade. Horizon Canopy is also good in this deck. I still think Abzan Falconer is a better target for Evolution/Company, or just to cast naturally, than Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Mayor of Avabruck  Flip is also a good Human lord who you don't mind flipping either. It is tough playing Modern with zero interaction so the Cloudshift should really be Path to Exile at least.

This was pretty much my next big deck build....very nice!! I had written it all out and here it is!!! lol albeit I had some different creature choices the main one being Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip in lieu of Student of Warfare plus the inclusion of the anthem spells Honor of the Pure @ 4 and the additional Always Watching @ 2.

Problem with that is I've left myself no room for the Vials or the DT Spheres OR the Sphinx's Revelation by doing that. I'm curious if you have tested that route and just plain found it to be slow and ultimately not good by comparison to your choices?

So many other humans I wanted to incorporate as well. Just wanted to understand your thinking behind their exclusion:

-Doomed Traveler the pro seems to be the spirit he leaves behind

-Boros Elite gets pretty beefy too the more humans that follow the charge!

-Consul's Lieutenant more beef upon active renown

-Deft Duelist shroud/evasive

-Knight of the White Orchid land!/first strike!

-Abzan Falconer the weaker of the choices I had in mind...flying I guess

-Frontline Medic boardwipe insurance for the army that fights together!!!

-Mentor of the Meek draw....but you got that covered

-Archangel of Tithes make things cost more for your opponent and forces hard choices

The last one understandably is not tribal but her abilities to slow down opponents are valuable my only counter to it right now is it has a demanding 4-cast expense on a curve that tops off very efficiently at 3.

I'm passionate about this deck type and really love humans in these colours. White and blue has always been my favourite colour combo and I use it frequently with either green or red to make jeskai or Bant.

Sorry for the word-y post getting to the bottom line of the preamble now with saying I definitely +1 this deck and if I could, +2 for humans and this deck design I so would!!!

  • An extremely heartfelt thank-you for building this and reading this!

recodef on my +1 (dromoka green white +1/+1)

There are a lot of creatures that allow you to exploit the +1/+1 counters on your other creatures. For example Abzan Falconer, Crowned Ceratok, Tuskguard Captain, Bramblewood Paragon, Battlefront Krushok, Ainok Bond-Kin or Abzan Battle Priest.

There are also some instant and sorcery cards that you could check out. Lifecrafter's Gift, Nissa's Judgment,Scale Blessing, Sunbringer's Touch, Inspiring Call,...

At last maybe these enchantments are worth checking out: Cathars' Crusade and Hardened Scales.

These are just some suggestions, maybe you've allready considered these cards. Or maybe you see something you like :)

xyr0s on Abzan blink

I think you should cut out the Eldritch Evolution-plan. There's only 2 it in the deck, but a pile of 1-of creatures that seem like they wait for you to draw it. And given your mana-base, Sun Titan is very close to a dead card if it just sits in your hand.

You also have a bit of a go-wide strategy going, but not really anyway. Abzan Falconer is a bit of a nonbo with blinks, as the blinking peels the +1/+1 counters of your creatures. Oblivion Ring is another card I wouldn't be too sure of. Is there a particular reason for having that, instead of Path to Exile? The difference between 1 mana and 3 mana is pretty substantial in modern...

Also, you could go for more blinking - more Restoration Angel and Flickerwisp, and try to win that way. Mangara of Corondor is removal-creature, that goes very well with instant-speed blink.

...and you need better lands. Buddy-lands, check-lands... anything, really, as long as you get it untapped into play.

DemonDragonJ on Ideas for an Atraxa Deck

Winterblast, True Conviction also grants all creatures lifelink, which is very useful with Archangel of Thune's ability.

What about Abzan Falconer, Master Biomancer, and/or Sage of Hours? Would they be worthwhile inclusions in an Atraxa deck?
