Aven Wind Guide Discussion

nvmorale on UW servos of God-Pharaoh

takeaseathoney, yes, i think you're right, i've added 3rd Anointed Procession, also added 4th copy of Master Trinketeer, as a mana sink in late game with embalmed Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun and Aven Wind Guide, for more consistency getting board presence

noorinjax on Uwe (UW Embalm)

@bellz76: Yes, Anointed Procession is the main reason I built this, as I really look forward to swarming with those tokens. I originally chose not to include Angel of Sanctions because of his really ugly mana cost - I thought, if I built this deck like any Aggro deck and considered embalming as what I do when I'm done casting spells off my hand, I might not need more than 20 Lands. Considering your advice, I'd guess this is more of a Control deck - I have a lot of Tempo, but next to no Speed.

I wasn't too sure when Kaladesh would rotate, seeing how often they changed that recently, so I thought I'd just include Amonkhet - It's a nice fit for a Vorthos, and it's easier to get your hands on most cards, if they're all from the most recent set.

I won't include Oketra's Attendant or Glyph Keeper, as they're both too expensive in a build like this. Sure, they're fliers, but Aven Wind Guide makes all my dudes fly, and unlike Angel of Sanctions they don't really bring enough value to the board.

Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate that!

Geo67 on Trying out B/W zombies with some Blue in it

COol thought. Why not throw a Glyph Keeper in there? He is hard to kill, and comes back as a zombie.

I know he's double blue, but he plays well with the Aven Wind Guide, and the Prized Amalgam.

Maybe ditch the Cast out, add another Anguished Unmaking or a board sweep to take on those pesky zombie decks, like Fumigate?

I am intrigued with this, might try and build something like it.

WarrKing on Deck help: Embalm, Zombies, and ...

If you don't mind a light blue splash, Aven Wind Guide would work well for your deck, giving all your tokens (including embalmed creatures) flying and vigilance. Cryptbreaker is also a meta defining card right now. It allows you to dicard embalm creatures to generate more tokens,and tap zombies for card draw.

Evolving Wilds is very potent right now as well. It gets you into your colors early game and thins out lands from your deck late game.

Cartby on Flying Servos

Hey! I like the idea of the creature tokens with flying, but I'd suggest more lords in the deck like Metallic Mimic, Master Trinketeer, or Angel of Invention especially angel given its ability to create more servos. Bumping Aven Wind Guide up to 4 copies might be better for consistency for flying servos. I definitely agree with the suggestions of Sram's Expertise and Reverse Engineer. Also, for more on color dual lands I'd suggest Irrigated Farmland. In terms of making room for these cards, I would try and limit the energy theme, especially with cards like Aethertide Whale not seeming like it has a whole ton to do apart from be a huge body, unless you have some huge energy payoff I'm just not seeing.

I hope this helps! Your deck looks great.

Spooktacular on Temmet, Tiny Leader Token Deck

You should be playing Aven Wind Guide, and possibly Regal Caracal to help with your tokens. Failure / Comply would work on the control side.

these are all great cards, and you've put them together nicely. You want to focus on a theme though, like here, you have stuff like Champion of Rhonas that would work so well with high mana creatures.

IMO, you should focus on tokens. For tokens, running strategies like embalm would work. For example, Noose Constrictor to discard embalmers (which are Trueheart Duelist, Sacred Cat, Anointer Priest, etc), and then using Anointed Procession, you keep getting double tokens. For planeswalkers, Nissa, Vital Force is powerful, but Nissa, Nature's Artisan is not as necessary.

I would also suggest cutting down to 60 cards, to maximize your consistency (E.g. trying to draw 1 Vizier of the Menagerie out of a 60 card deck versus out of a 10000 card deck i.e. you want to have the lowest deck size possible so you can consistently draw your important cards)

and the good thing is, this is very budget friendly. If you want, you can take a look at my bant embalm that i've been working on, An Amalgamation of the Embalmed. the main difference is that I run blue, allowing me to use powerful walkers like Tamiyo, Field Researcher, and good cards for tokens like Aven Wind Guide.

I hope you enjoy this game as much as I do! good luck =)

I would consider adding a sac outlet or a way to discard specific cards so you can have a reliable way to cast them from the embalm ability. Right now it seems like you're relying on your opponent to destroy them in some way, except for Oketra's Attendant. I suggest splashing black for Hidden Stockpile. To squeeze it in, you could cut a copy of Anointed Procession and/or a higher cost creature like Glyph Keeper or Aven Wind Guide.
