Augury Owl Discussion

kamelyan on Belligerent Birds

My favorite bird is Rimefeather Owl. Switch your basics for Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Islands, and you've got yourself one large bird. Although it actually pairs better with Rimescale Dragon and Training Grounds, so...

...and my tribal-bird deck is a pauper deck, so there's no good common to suggest from there; especially since you've already included Augury Owl.

Cavern of Souls! Cavern of Souls is a card that would boost this deck!

Oh yeah... budget.

Basalt Monolith, Clever Impersonator, Augury Owl, Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Cutpurse, Darksteel Mutation, Mystic Remora, Trophy Mage are all awesome in brago. Stax pieces like Winter Orb, Static Orb, Tangle Wire, and Stasis are perfect for brago also due to him being able to flicker your rocks to avoid you being locked down.

Another way to fix that issue could be with adding 1 extra Warden of Evos Isle, getting rid of the Sage Owls and adding an extra Augury Owl. Dash Hopes could be a fun card if youre able to make sure mana isnt a problem. Also, it might be worth taking more advantage of Stormscape Familiar with more black spells that have colorless in the cost. Once again, great deck!

I would say combo decks are better defined as instant win decks, basically once the combo is up and running they win through whatever the combo is doing. I don't know if you would really call them control decks as sometimes they do use sweepers and countermagic to make it until the combo pieces are assembled, but sometimes they just use efficient blockers and creatures like Augury Owl to find pieces. The rest of your descriptions seem to fit relatively well. I would argue that tempo decks have 2 categories, proactive and reactive.

Hyperalgialysis on Bolas Control

You need to add more control elements to make it run smoother, you have a decent amount, but it needs some sweepers like Anger of the Gods Languish or AEtherize. Disallow is going to be better than Cancel, but if you don't want to spend the money on it Scatter to the Winds, Void Shatter, Dissolve, Dissipate and Counterflux are all cheaper upgrades. Upgrade your mana base as you can, you could easily start by adding a few of the cycle dual lands or the battle for zendikar ones, then get Dragonskull Summit. I also like Foreboding Ruins and Choked Estuary, especially if you focus more on swamps. To help get bolas in play faster, Talisman of Indulgence and Talisman of Dominance are 2 drop mana rocks that work well in your colors. I would drop all your creatures and go more spell heavy, maybe making room for some Spellheart Chimera or Enigma Drake since you would increase your spell count. You can also run things like Sea Gate Oracle and Augury Owl to set up your draws. Consult the Necrosages is better than Brainbite. Slave of Bolas and Elder Mastery should be replaced with Dark Intimations. Drop Throne of the God-Pharaoh as well since you arent making tokens to benefit from it. Another decent creature to put in would be Noxious Gearhulk since it removes a creature. Duress and Blightning are also really good, as well as Negate and Barter in Blood.

Adding cipher cards would be a nice addition. Hidden Strings and Hands of Binding are both awesome with Invisible Stalker. Curiosity is good on them too. Silver-Inlaid Dagger is good equipment, so is Butcher's Cleaver or Loxodon Warhammer. Truthfully once you get an Invisible Stalker out the deck should start really doing some work, so replacing defenders with creatures to let you dig for them would be cool, Sage Owl Augury Owl Sage of Epityr Sea Gate Oracle, anything that will let you move cards around, I like Sigiled Starfish for that too.

Nelloh on Sen Triplets EDH

Exclusion Ritual seems way too specific for EDH, I wouldn't recommend it. Plus that mana cost is bonkers. In fact, all those enchantment (Nevermore, Oblivion Ring) are probably not ideal for EDH. You'd be better off replacing them with specific removal similar to Path to Exile, for example Anguished Unmaking.

You may want to consider swapping Augury Owl with Baleful Strix.

Also, since you have Sharum, you would benefit from Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph if you want to play combos. These, in combination with Altar of the Brood or Bitter Ordeal, will result in a mill infinite combo, if that's something you want to use.

You could also consider replacing Akroma's Vengeance with Hour of Revelation as the effects are similar, the costs are the samebut there's a chance you might only have to pay 3 for Hour as opposed to Akroma's.

Lastly, if you want to get the most out of Sen Triplet's effects, you really need Chromatic Lantern or similar ways to cast mana that isn't in your colours. Looks like a fun deck overall though, I really love Sen Triplets.
