Aid from the Cowl Discussion

HawkRider on Revolting isn't it?

1 day ago

I play an Abzan Revolt deck in Standard personally, and I can think of one or two things that may work.

In your colours, the five cards that come to mind are Tireless Tracker, Thraben Inspector, Implement of Ferocity, Call for Unity and Aid from the Cowl.

First, Tireless Tracker and Thraben Inspector. Clues are amazing for revolt. Not to mention, Thraben Inspector is one of the best one-drops in Standard.It's always helpful to have a clue floating around for those times you just have no other way to trigger revolt. Plus, extra card draw never hurts.

Call for Unity is a fantastic card, in my opinion. All of your creatures get gradually stronger, and people don't pack as much artifact removal in Standard currently. Aid from the Cowl is more fun, but when the worst thing that can happen is show your next draw you can't really complain about free permanents most turns. I've had a lot of fun with it.

Implement of Ferocity I rate as the best implement, except maybe Implement of Malice. It's better than Implement of Improvement, in my opinion, but I suppose it mostly depends on meta and personal preference. (As a side note, Renegade Map is another good artifact revolt trigger and can really help with consistency and mana fixing).

You may want to consider splashing in for black. Hidden Stockpile is an amazing card, both being able to trigger revolt and having a revolt trigger itself. Another benefit is that it allows you to do things like sacrifice your own creatures so you don't get burned by any Unlicensed Disintegration, or limiting life gain from Fumigate. Shambling Vent is a really good land (I've had a lot of fun, getting it to a 12/13 lifelinker through Call for Unity). You also get access to the amazing cards that are Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness.

Revolt decks need consistency more than anything. There needs to be a way for you to trigger it every turn. Aethergeode Miner is really good for that, but more triggers that don't depend on killing your own creatures on your opponents are nice.

Nice to see someone else playing revolt though! Have fun!

Does Panharmonicon make Scrounging Bandar come into play as a 4/4? I would have thought, since it says "enters the battlefield with" instead of enters the battlefield, add" that it wouldn't, but I'm not sure.

I'm not sure how your deck plays, but I would think with 20 lands that cards like Aid from the Cowl and Call for Unity would just sit there in your hand a lot, or the game would be over before you could play them. I would probably replace those with cards that you would be able to play early, since you deck looks like it gets going pretty early.

Consider adding some removal other than the 2 Immolating Glare. Stasis Snare is a reliable way to get rid of annoying cards that keep coming back, like Scrapheap Scrounger. Or else Clear Shot is a good way to take out some pesky creatures instantly, and works well with Narnam Renegade.

Looks like a fun deck! Could be a pretty fast one too!

Hey uh, Niblet, neither of those lands are currently in standard, although Gordin_The_Archer, if you're looking for a duel land to play for mana fixing, Tranquil Expanse is super cheap, however, you could also consider Canopy Vista or Fortified Village, slightly more expensive, but better overall. Also maybe consider Aid from the Cowl. And if you're also willing to spend a bit (a lot) more on this, play Walking Ballista, probably the best card in the format to trigger revolt.

Drop to 1 Yahenni's Expertise because you would end up killing your own field half the time. I don't know if I would use Rishkar's Expertise at all. Just because you want to finish your opponent fairly early and you only have a couple cards that would be worth casting after the draw.

Aid from the Cowl is slower than it looks so maybe just one of for that as well. Cool card but it doesn't play like you want. For a replacement You could try out the Lifecrafter's Bestiary for a late game card. Helps you sift through lands and cards you don't want after turn 4-5.

Now for Unbridled Growth, great card but 4 is too heavy because it's going to get in the way. I would drop to 2 and run 2 Attune with Aether instead. Best energy card there is. But it's really up to you because growth is great for revolt and it's better than the Renegade map I suggested earlier.

Drop out Lifecrafter's Gift for something like Highspire Infusion, Blossoming Defense, or Larger Than Life.

You have a good concept. You just need fine tuning. Good luck!

Since you have big creatures to play, what about using an Aid from the Cowl as a possibility?

Aid from the Cowl is just not really good enough, and I would recommend switching it out for one of your maybe board cards. Giant Growth doesn't exactly fit the theme of the deck, so I would take that out too. So, what this deck is lacking in is removal. At least some removal is necessary. I take it you want to keep it budget, so I won't recommend Path to Exile, but path is the best removal in white. Prey Upon can sometimes do the job, but not always. Maybe Oblivion Ring/Banishing Light could do some work.
