Battle Screech Discussion

Augury Owl and Judge's Familiar are cheap creatures important in early game for scry and to counter spells/instants.

Later in the game, two other players Stormscape Familiar and Warden of Evos Isle shines. Stormscape Familiar reduces the mana of white spells, which means that white counter spells Orim's Chant, Wing Shards,Dismantling Blow and Island Sanctuary have their cost reduced. Most importantly, Stormscape Familiar reduces the cost of Battle Screech, Eyes in the Skies and Migratory Route. When these cards come to play, 1/1 bird tokens are summoned (4 for each Battle Screech and Migratory Route and multiple 1/1 bird tokens for Eyes in the Skies's populate). Rootborn Defenses (reduced by Stormscape Familiar) multiplies even further our 1/1 bird tokens with populate and turns them indestructible. Warden of Evos Isle reduces the cost of other bird creatures (Thrummingbird and Soulcatcher) meaning more birds.

Many bird tokens and non-tokens creatures and are going to die and repopulate. For each dead bird, a feather counter will be put in Soulcatchers' Aerie (cost reduced by Stormscape Familiar) and boost our creatures wavelike. Tokens and counters are further multiplied by Thrummingbird (proliferate pre-existing tokens) and Soulcatcher (+1/+1 token for each dead bird). Once birds have been summoned and everything is put to its place there is a great synergy. Token-wise, Cathars' Crusade cost reduced by Stormscape Familiar) is a great addition. Favorable Winds is a plus while Gravitational Shift is GG.

In order to speed up the summoning of the birds, Coastal Piracy (draw a card for each attacking creature) and Military Intelligence (draw a card whenever 2 creatures are attacking) come to play. They match-up nicely with Island Sanctuary in order to protect our birds. Deluge can be a very nice surprise.

About lands, Halimar Depths and Seaside Haven speeds up the game. Seaside Haven is important once it sacrifices a bird for Soulcatcher and Soulcatchers' Aerie. Speaking of counters, Calciform Pools, Vivid Creek and Vivid Meadow counters can be proliferated by Thrummingbird and more mana can be added.

If the commons/uncommons are packed with Lightning Bolts, Swords to Plowshares, Ponders, Inquisition of Kozilek, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Counterspell, and other fun stuff I'd still get few even if the mythics were all storm crows and grizzly bears.

Sure, it's fun to open a $10 pack with 14 chaff and one $20 card, but I'd much rather open a $10 pack with 15 $1 cards.

Plus, life becomes a lot easier if Chainer's Edict and Battle Screech finally get paper printings at common.

Commenting on my friend's behalf: Basically he's saying Battle Screech is op and Glint Hawk would fit in well (Bonesplitters and Thraben Inspector) Now me talking:I like what i'm seeing, might build your deck! +1 if i find how to +1 heh

Have you considered Battle Screech for the Triplicate Spirits slot? It doesn't have convoke, but it generates more tokens and you can do stuff with it when it's on the yard.

DarksteelBadger Thanks I am as well! I played a Grixis Version and of course the Jeskai version pre-Drake but, I've been on this R/W list and loving it. Battle Screech and Rally the Peasants work great! The deck is so grindy and I never feel like I'm out of the match.
