Aven Warhawk Discussion
1 year ago
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.

Thank you for all the suggestions!
I started off this deck years ago running Aven Warhawk and never got him to work right. Whenever I get to turn 5 I never have enough birds in hand to make it worth playing.

Interesting concept, jchapsman.
Is this something you play among your friends or a deck building challenge?
Aven Warhawk seems like it would be a decent addition, but that 'anthropomorphized' stipulation kind of nixes that.
Any reason to not just run another Judge's Familiar over Suntail Hawk. Seems like it's better on all accounts. Impaler Shrike could give you some late game draw if you need, and Mindshrieker could give you another threat/win con.
Just some ideas. What do you think?

Amplify, which appears only in one set IIRC. Aven Warhawk. Basically just gives it bonus counters when it enters for each creature that shares a type.
