Commander Eesha Discussion
1 week ago
I think why Commander Eesha is worth the 4cmc is because the bird pulls double duty - it doesn't just have as good evasion as shadow creatures, but when the game goes wonky and you need to be on the defensive, it can block anything (but trample) and it won't ever die from combat.
That's awesome you have a blade of selves, I think it's a perfect fit, especially to get all 3 opponent triggers. Master Warcraft is one of my favourite cards, and would be great in here. Sunblast is another fantastic board wipe that works with the synergy, which to me is what makes a great, unique deck (rather than just playing a Damnation type wipe... those there's times for that). on that note, I need to get me a Mogg Infestation.
Rhythm seems like a great fit... and I think most charms are must play. The harder casting cost is worth having 3 options in your hand.
A Rogue's Passage could be a good "fine I'll do it myself" card. Then we can start getting some land in here too ;)

goldlion Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll give my thoughts on all of them here:
Commander Eesha Cool card! love the art and seems very useful! My one thought is that I prioritized keeping my evasive creatures mostly below 4cmc, since ideally I'd like to swing in on the turn Marisi hits the board. This still seems like it could be worth including though since it's always gonna be unblockable.
Terastodon is a card I've always liked, but I just wasn't sure if its cost was too high for this mostly aggressive deck. Definitely worth a try though, I'll test some games with him!
Blade of Selves Awesome, unique effect, and I have one in my collection already! Great suggestion!
Primal Vigor I had one, but I gave it to the Ghired player. I'll get one for sure when I get a chance, it's great in the deck, but it's sadly pretty expensive.
I agree with the thought about small flyers, I'll probably want some better evasive stuff, though hopefully still low on the curve. Happy to hear more ideas if you have any!
Some other cards I found in my collection since putting this list together, and am considering adding, are Sunblast Angel, Master Warcraft, Rhythm of the Wild, and Naya Charm The first two seem especially suited to the deck's goals, while the latter two are just solid and flexible cards in our colors. I like that Sunblast Angel can wipe the board of our last oppenent standing, so that we can easily finish them off at the game's finale.

Excellent! I'm going to make some time at one point soon to go through and offer some ideas...
right away I can see Commander Eesha, a card I have, being a great addition. Get's through 80% of the time, all the time.

Yo DanTheBear, have you ever consider using these cards?
- Aven Mimeomancer
- Celestial Gatekeeper
- Crookclaw Elder
- Commander Eesha
- Metallic Mimic
- Unsettled Mariner
- Dovin's Veto
- Vanquisher's Banner
- Herald's Horn
- Contagion Clasp
- Contagion Engine
- Sword of Truth and Justice
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study
- Smothering Tithe
- Kindred Discovery
- Coastal Piracy
- Bident of Thassa
Aside from that direct straight upgrades for the rocks will definitely help Kangee out, as he is pretty mana hungry. So the fast acceleration rocks like Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress, Azorius Signet, Arcane Signet, and Coalition Relic really helps to bring him out faster with the feather counters. Hope that helps!

I would just like to note, the artwork of a bird deck is very important.
Instead of basics from Dominaria, the Plains from Mirage have birds in the art: Plains
It's a crime to not run Soraya the Falconer . She is of the uttermost bird-kind.
For an actual suggestion, Abolish is an underrated card with much application. But you must further your bird-game. Make haste!

Yeah, I agree, Commander Eesha is way better. If you want to change up the whole deck to make it better, I would run Uril, the Miststalker as the general, but that would take a lot of work.

I don't use to say to someone try using other commander but Huang Zhong is kind of dated man...
I'd say to run Commander Eesha at the helm

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.
