Aven Mimeomancer Discussion

Dorotheus on Flashy little spirits

2 weeks ago

I'm a bit of a veteran player and deck builder, and basically you've just verified everything I've tested so far.
It seems there are 2 pique ways to build spirits, Jeskai and Bant, clearly because of the UW core being so already in-line with synergies. For a Red build I'm using Eidolon of the Great Revel and Lightning Bolt, some decks just fold to Eidolon already. And at least in my build that Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is likely a better SB card against midrange than MB. And Nebelgast Herald is GREAT! I've had to take it out a lot for control/combo matches but I've locked up Elves and Merfolk decks with it. <3 Definitely a favorite.

Another card I've been trying is Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit 1 has been really good, 2 always locks up my hand, but Eidolon has been my main "power" 2-cmc so maybe you could use her for the 2 drop you mentioned.
That's funny you mention not to play Geist, I've been having trouble getting it though (my other buddy that also has built my list, Tempo Ghosts (Tribal Spirits), went up to 3 instead of 2 and it always works for him, I can't understand how). But I'm going to be testing 1 Aven Mimeomancer to get the non-flying spirits I have, to fly.

Last thing: Moorland Haunt vs Mutavault I haven't tested Haunt entirely and Mutavault has been more a blocker than an aggressor like I thought it would be.

upgraded on derevi bird tribal

I had Aven Mimeomancer in the initial list because I thought it worked like a Song of the Dryads effect and made dudes into VANILLA birds, then when I figured out how the card actually worked I cut it without really considering whether the card ACTUALLY works with my deck. I should probably give it a shot.

I'm trying to keep my curve super-low, so once my cantripping enchantments come out I can machine-gun out birds, but Raven Familiar probably deserves a place even though three is a bit more than I want to spend on a non-game-winning bird.

Great suggestions, both! Thank you.

I'd consider Raven Familiar - yeah, it's a little costly with Echo considered, but its deck manipulation is very nice. Much better than, say, Owl Familiar's. Besides, with Seaside Haven and Soulcatchers' Aerie in there, sometimes you won't mind him dying right away.

Aven Mimeomancer might also be a nice addition. He can buff all of your little 1/1 birdies, bring an opponent's hulking dragon down to size, and even combos delightfully with Kangee.

They are both decent for sure. I want to see how Aven Mimeomancer plays out. I'm thinking I only want two cards (8 total) in the 3 mana spot. If the mimeomancer or Lyev Skyknight are lackluster, I'll give spell queller a go.

Red_Trinket on Paradox Haze Feat. Zur

Lazaro46 I'd say that overall, the deck has been performing pretty well at a casual level, maybe 50% tuned decks. If I were to mark the things that are in most dire need of change, it would definitely be the curve and the early game. If you were looking at upgrading the build that is posted here, I would take out some of the weaker win cons such as Herald of Leshrac and some of the less useful cards such as Drana's Emissary and Aven Mimeomancer. The early game is where this deck can struggle; if it gets a good start then it will faceroll against decks of a similar power level, but it can really struggle if it doesn't get a t3 or t4 Paradox Haze + abuser. Additionally, I would run a LOT more interaction. This version of the deck is super greedy, running almost no removal and no counterspells which tends to lead to losing a lot of games.

In summary, I'd take out all but your 5 or so win cons of choice and run some more interaction and more control elements. I'd take out most of the cards like Aven Mimeomancer and Martial Law since they don't do much to slow down an entire table, and I'd add more ways of consistently finding and protecting your good win conditions such as Mirror-Sigil Sergeant. I'll be the first to admit that there aren't a ton of ways that this card wins for you, which is why this is a VERY casual deck. Best of luck in your paradoxical ventures :)

Additions (trying to push boros. We can remove anything on this list, of course):

Things to consider for UW (not added, lets discuss):


Some notes:

Do we include sigets? I think it might be a good idea.


Darklordnfg on Birds of a Feather

I ended up pulling Devrai out and putting in Pride of the Clouds. He gives good additional token productions and much better mid-game play. I really do not like how Kangee, Aerie Keeper interacts. Since he isn't a bird, he simply isn't worth dropping unless you can use his kicker which is much slower than this deck is built to run. He also is very prone to getting burnt out of existence. I am up for suggestions. Thinking about Cloudfin Raptor, Gustcloak Savior, Aven Mimeomancer, or Augury Owl.

Neat deck! You might try to extract a little more value from your 1-3 mana creatures. Reflector Mage, Judge's Familiar, Lyev Skyknight for tempo plays.

Esper Stormblade, Aven Mimeomancer, Daxos of Meletis, Geist of Saint Traft or whatever floats your boat for finishers.

Just suggestions, obviously. For space, I might take out Arashin Cleric, Mortarpod, Ojutai's Command. But cool deck! Love the concept.
