Cavalier of Gales Discussion

Thanks for the recommendations! I tossed in Brazen Borrower since it fits perfectly in the deck theme, and Cavalier of Gales to replace those higher cmc creatures. I found the mechanic on the Cavalier interesting, since it is like a dynamic scy 3 draw 1 that lets me put other things in my hand away instead.

I tried Faerie Miscreant out and while it did combo off nice a few times, when I only had 1 or 2 I didn't find myself lacking mana and kept Cloudkin Seer instead. I also have Warden of Evos Isle, so if that is out it can lower the cost and was wasted on my 1 cmc creatures.

Faerie Formation looked really tempting too since it included a way to draw cards, and making flyers is a nice bonus. I felt it might work better in a deck that focused more on buffing many things/all flyers though, and the other options at the same cmc worked better for this deck concept.

What about Brazen Borrower?

Faerie Miscreant can be useful. Maybe Hypnotic Sprite, but it's a pretty weak card.

I'd definitely remove the Air Elementals. If you want a big beater, rather play Cavalier of Gales or Sphinx of Foresight. Heck, even Faerie Formation is stronger.

Cerulean Drake is a must-have for the sideboard in a deck like this.

For ETB creatures, you might look at Cavalier of Gales and Cavalier of Dawn, but too many five-drops will slow you down, so don't add too many. Your finisher would be Agent of Treachery.

Now, if we went for the white weenie route, Conclave Tribunal is a must. There is another route we could go, which involves dropping blue and going full-on white weenie. Reverent Hoplite would be more effective there, but isn't horrible here. Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis gets you a ton of tokens repeatedly.

VampiricJace I'm excited to see what you come up with!

Like I said, I think the real power from mono blue in the upcoming set with be the ridiculous late game threats that Cavalier of Gales , Vantress Gargoyle , and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling provide. I like the inclusion of Leyline of Anticipation as a free way to play at instant speed and devotion, which would end up being awesome against any flash/control deck.

Another option I didn't mention that I might see working out well is a big-mana strategy, using Agent of Treachery or Mass Manipulation . Not sure if that deck runs Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and chooses to go Simic ramp style instead, but blue devotion with Nyx Lotus paired with Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner and Corridor Monitor could be nasty.

I like this build, it reminds me of the popular Roon of the Hidden Realm EDH decks. I have a few thoughts that you might like to consider:

  • First off I think reducing the number of high end cards, and smoothing out the curve a bit will help you out alot here. Meteor Golem really isn't needed if you are using Agent of Treachery to steal everything, and I would much rather devote those 4 slots to something like Cavalier of Gales . It is a great target for Thassa, Deep-Dwelling , provides plenty of blue devotion, along with being an Elemental for Risen Reef, and is a major recurring threat that is hard to deal with without exile effects. A straight up swap of all 4 copies would be ideal.

  • I think your card draw is going to be good enough through Cloudkin Seer , Fblthp, the Lost , Risen Reef and Teferi, Time Raveler that you won't need to run Guardian Project . It is at a point in the mana curve where you would realistically like to be impacting the board, and this build is looking to get into the late game quickly. I would rather play a ramp creature such as Leafkin Druid to get your Agent of Treachery out earlier, or a removal effect such as Brazen Borrower to give you more time against any aggressive matchups.

  • Charming Prince seems pretty weak in this build since it doesn't add devotion for Thassa, Deep-Dwelling or have the Elemental creature typing. There aren't too many better options in standard for Elemental creatures without playing , however Cavalier of Thorns is a good card to pair with Risen Reef . The mana is going to be tough though, so sticking to a base and only splashing for Teferi, Time Raveler will help clean up the mana. Alternatively, you could run Gilded Goose instead to get your 3 CMC cards on the board turn 2.

It wasn't mentioned whether or not this was intended to be a budget build, so I am sorry if the cards mentioned are either out of price range or too high of rarity to craft with wildcards on MTG Arena, but the power level in standard is extremely high as of Throne of Eldraine and this deck would need to be tuned pretty well in order to be competitive. I hope you like my suggestions!

I like the build, however I have a few comments regarding the overall play pattern of the deck.

So to summarize, I would make sure to include the following:

jroyhood: Thanks! I didn't take it face value (for example, the Brazen Borrower has worked so well for me I couldn't take out 2). But, I'm going to heavily playtest this new version, having included a lot of your advice.

Thoughts on having Thassa, Deep-Dwelling be included at all? Her ability plays well very well with Cavalier of Gales , Syr Elenora, the Discerning , & Thassa's Oracle , but other than that, she might not be the perfect inclusion. Of course, however, I made this deck because I'm a Thassa fanboy..lol.
