Draw a card for each Bird in play.
Airborne Aid Discussion
1 month ago
I also run a Derevi Birds tribal deck, if you want to have a look at it you might be able to find some cards you like. My Deck: Bantish Birds That being said, there are a few cards that work well that I can definitely recommend. Dovin, Grand Arbiter is great for deck filtering and just getting the cards you need when you need them. Serra the Benevolent buffs our birds and her ultimate is easy to get to and powerful as well. Another thing to mention, is that while Airborne Aid is card draw based off of birds, there are better ways to achieve that same effect, such as Bident of Thassa , Coastal Piracy and Edric, Spymaster of Trest . As if you're aggressive and attack with your birds every turn, you get to draw a card for each bird that does damage, and you can do the same as every turn as long as the effect is on the field. Keeper of the Nine Gales is a good bird that likes having other birds on the field for a repeatable bounce effect. If you're going to run Kangee, I'd suggest also running Aven Mimeomancer , which can give Kangee extra feather counters and Thrummingbird , which can proliferate the counters on Kangee. Also, not related to birds, but I've found that Lux Cannon works really well with Derevi's tap/untap abilities. There's plenty more to be said, but that might get really lengthy. I hope you enjoy playing your deck! I've had a lot of fun with mine.

Bident of Thassa , Coastal Piracy and Airborne Aid are already included so yeah my usual strategy so far is "how about just a bit of damage so I can draw a card?". Not so sure about the eldrazi though since it lacks my birdy theme

No trouble. I never considered that interaction! I've never been big on WU, but maybe I should look into a Taigam deck. Ethereal Usher , Enlightened Tutor , and Idyllic Tutor would probably be the next upgrades I would go for, then. Seaside Haven , Soulcatchers' Aerie , and Airborne Aid could also be good, depending on how reliably you get out Dovescape.

good card for them to replace are :High Tide, Distant Melody, Airborne Aid, Shared Discovery, Mizzium Skin, Gigadrowse, Sage's Row Denizen, Rhystic Study, any of the cantrips. theres a bit of protection, control and card draw. but i suggest you take out Sudden Storm, Aerial Formation, Piracy Charm, Hubris, Jace's Scrutiny, Refocus, Reach Through Mists, Tidal Bore. for more useful cards like Gush, Hoodwink, Man-o'-War, Snap, Volrath's Curse, Relic of Progenitus and more counters like Dream Fracture, Faerie Trickery, Arcane Denial, Logic Knot oh and See Beyond seems like a good enough hand filter.

Hi there! First of all +1 for the obscure tribe.
So you mentioned that you are looking for ways beef up the power level of your deck and your focus is bird tokens. I am not sure what your budget considerations are, but here are some suggestions that I think that may help.
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is a solid way to end the game once he becomes large enough (and he definitely will in a 4 player game).
Phantom Flock can get really out of hand with your proliferate sub-package
Shriek Raptor is another way you can end the game through infect.
Riptide Replicator can create large bird tokens for you.
Some other more utility considerations could be:
I highly recommend running Herald's Horn in any tribal deck as it provides cost reduction and occasional card advantage.
I'd recommend a little more interaction in your deck. Obviously Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift and Return to Dust are very good in these colors, but a more tribal centric card is Harsh Mercy. It allows you to save your birds but still removes a majority of you opponent's creatures. Just watch out for other tribal decks.
I hope some of these suggestions help. Good luck deck building!
