Aid from the Cowl Discussion

Ok, so, after some more testing, Walking Ballista is a must. The way it cheats direct removal is great, and it also deals with planeswalkers.

For sure, Verdurous Gearhulk is a very important card in the deck, as it gives a lot of value for the mana cost.

Hissing Quagmire feels good as it is a potential attacker at some point, and, after turn 3, it doesn't really matter if lands enter tapped.

I boarded in from sideboard Aid from the Cowl against control and it is an interesting card, not sure yet how good it is, definitely better than Rishkar's Expertise.

What I felt missing always in the first game were cards like Blossoming Defense and Fatal Push.

Tireless Tracker seems a good addition to the deck.

Kushala, When I started putting this deck together on here it originally started out Azban but I found myself only touching 3 black cards so I scrapped them, I didn't think reaching for the 3rd color gave me that much value. I agree that black is the best midrange right now, I'm currently playing B/R Zombies. After thinking about it more I do think Greenbelt Rampager should go in. I'm not a big fan of the Aegis Automaton so those will probably come out.

LogicVoid I think I disagree here. Aid from the Cowl hits all but 5 cards. It is on the expensive side but I think it works as a pseudo draw outlet that's always valuable. That said, I'll keep an eye on how it does. I might bring the number down so I can fit the Rampagers in.

i agree with LogicVoid Aid from the Cowl is not very good.

Check out Aid from the Cowl. Super-competitive? No. Worth messing around with in more casual decks? Absolutely. I greatly enjoyed sacrificing my Relentless Dead and flipping a Rune-Scarred Demon on my end step. If it wiffs, it acts as a public scry, letting you push the non-permanent away if you don't want it. And revolt should be easy to trigger in most Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, or Meren of Clan Nel Toth builds.

Also, I guess those Roon of the Hidden Realm flicker people could use this too, but ew bant.

Aid from the Cowl is expensive an will rarely give you much value.

I am not sure Yahenni's Expertise is a good idea, it kills most of your creatures. Maybe some combination of Rishkar's Expertise, Monstrous Onslaught, and Aid from the Cowl.

This deck is running no-AER cards right now, since I will be playing it on the first week, before I get my pre-orders. Despit this, I don't expect much changes.
