Augury Owl

Creature — Bird

When Augury Owl enters the battlefield, scry 3. (To scry 3, look at the top three cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

I've been looking for other things that can do what top does:

I found the secret to a quicker Yuriko deck is top deck manipulation. Here is my package for that: 1x Augury Owl 1x Insidious Dreams 1x Lim-Dul's Vault 1x Mystical Tutor 1x Personal Tutor 1x Sage Owl 1x Sensei's Divining Top 1x Vampiric Tutor

I would definitely swap out your Diabolic Tutor for at least Mystical tutor, and budget depending, the other 2 I listed as well. Maybe Crystal Ball but I find it too slow.

You could also focus the deck more by taking out the graveyard recur. I would also add more 1 cmc unblockables to enable all your ninjustu ninjas. Here's my decklist: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/hits-you-with-ninjutsu-yuriko-edh/ It's very focused on what Yuriko wants to do.

I really like Paradise Mantle , I'll definitely add that. Cloudchaser Eagle actually used to be in the deck, as did Augury Owl ! I'll definitely have to revisit them for some more utility in here. I did consider Aven Fateshaper too, but he's just too expensive to be reliable - his activated ability cost is actually 4U not 1U.

The big thing I'm noticing in playtesting is that Kangee works really well with all this proliferate. Even getting him out with only one feather counter has been perfectly viable, as it never stays just one. But with him as the sole linchpin, it's not hard for an opponent to just kill him off and leave me entirely open. Even upon his second cast he costs 9 mana to get out with a single feather counter. I need to maybe go a little overboard with my mana solutions here, and almost definitely add at least Whispersilk Cloak and Swiftfoot Boots to offer him some protection.

Oh man, I just saw the art for Aven Brigadier . Such a winner! And Commander Eesha is incredible! Crookclaw Elder and Gustcloak Savior are sweet value too. Bird Tribal has some fun value.

In terms of mana, some other ideas are Dreamscape Artist .... he alllllmost counts as a bird? Technically he does, he's a shapeshifter, but maybe not a flavour win, haha. Probably not good enough. Also, I'd say Paradise Mantle which has a flavour win as it's off the Birds of Paradise idea and, even if only in imagery, gives "wings" (see picture) ;). I was going to recommend Dream Thrush over a signet if you had one, for fixing mana on theme, but you don't have one.

I really like Opt , Brainstorm , and Ponder in my blue decks cause they help me make sure I hit my landrops, or later on get me the cards I need (or skip the cards I don't need). In this awesome bird theme your building up, I think Augury Owl is a great way to fill that niche. Brilliant, in my own mind :). Aven Fateshaper does that too, but he's a little more pricey... except, when he comes out he can keep doing it for ! Awesome.

If you ever find that infinite combo, Apex Hawks might be good in here!

Cloudchaser Eagle is almost like bird tribals very own Acidic Slime ... note quite, but almost. I see you got Kestrel in there, his cheaper counter part (though I guess classified "equal" as kestrel requires two vs. the extra for eagle.

If your playgroup combos off, goes Voltron, or has some crazy creatures that end games, Aven Augur seems like cool utility. If you playgroup is just "good times" though, I do think you should put in Carnivorous Death-Parrot for fun or Cardpecker ;). My playgroup allows 1 unhinged type card, unless it's absolutely broken.

It's too bad Aven Warhawk is so pricey, or else his effect would be great!

This would be fun to play, I can tell. Nice work! So cool to see a tribe with such a tool box.

Vampiric Tutor is the #1 card you could put in to improve the deck. Diabolic Vision is an excellent cantrip. Temporal Trespass is the best extra turn spell you could ask for, since the CMC is an upside. Same goes for Curtains' Call and Avatar of Woe . Insidious Dreams and Ancestral Knowledge are extra Doomsdays. Unnatural Selection is an extra creature-type changer. Emrakul, the Promised End is a good eldrazi of choice, since you'll actually be able to cast it if you tutor it to the top of your library. Trench Gorger is a good late game card, since it does triple duty acting as a huge beater, high-CMC target, and deck-thinner. For little guys, Tormented Soul , Triton Shorestalker , Faerie Impostor , Prickly Boggart , Vampire Cutthroat , Looter il-Kor , Nether Traitor , Flitterstep Eidolon , Thalakos Seer , Baleful Strix , Augury Owl , Spire Owl , and Sage Owl are better than some of your choices,

I'd recommend looking through list of staples in your colors. Stuff like Eternal Witness and Cyclonic Rift are always good. You definitely need better ramp and more card draw. Cards that fill that role and could suit your deck well are Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Cultivate, Mystic Remora, Blue Sun's Zenith, Beast Whisperer, and Soul of the Harvest. I would also recommend adding some more token generators, because small tokens synergize specially well with your commander: Chasm Skulker, Hornet Queen, Hangarback Walker, or, a personal favorite, Fable of Wolf and Owl. You should also consider adding more single target removal. Cards like Pongify or Rapid Hybridization are great for getting rid of big threats and for popping off your own cards like in case of them being exiled. There is no better feeling that responding to a Path to Exile targetting your Hangarback Walker with ten +1/+1 counters with your own Pongify. In case you have trouble wondering what to cut I'd recommend taking out the worst mana producers, Biomantic Mastery, Snakeform, Infiltration Lens, Augury Owl, Omenspeaker, Overrun, and Give / Take. Maybe even one to three lands given how low your curve is and how much card draw you can generate. I hope this helps.

These are all cards I use in my Aminatou deck. These first 3 give some descent continual top deck manipulation that I think is worth their higher converted mana cost (compared to sorcery versions)

Augury Owl is a nice cheap blink target to get continual scrying. Cryptic Annelid: can dig up to 6 cards deep to set up future draws nicely Riverwise Augur: is a brainstorm on a stick.

Hostage Taker: can keep stealing opponents artifacts/creatures as long as you cast them in between blinks

There are a few cards I'd like to call into question.

And there are a few cards I think you should really consider:

I tried to avoid recommending anything super expensive but I believe that any of these cards would slot right into your deck.
