Favorable Winds Discussion

Sarkhan420X on Spirit Bounce w/ Soulherder?

2 weeks ago

the deck i use doesn't really have the same theme as what you're going for, but i don't mind explaining my deck. my spirit build has a lot of counterspells like Mana Leak and Rune Snag , with Mausoleum Wanderer and Spell Queller as my "counterspells on wings". it also has lots of power/toughness boosts in Supreme Phantom , Favorable Winds , and Drogskol Captain .

i'm not saying Soulherder doesn't work for bouncing creatures with etb effects. thats exactly what it was intended for. i'm saying it doesn't work in the usual spirit tribal build, because most spirits don't have meaningful ETB's.

This seems like the makings of a fun deck! It has a lot going on... I'm not convinced so many strategies can be supported (tho I'm fine being wrong if you think you can pull it off). My #1 suggestion would be to dump one or more strategies to strengthen the others. Roughly in order:

- Mill. IMO this is the weakest/least supported. Recommend cutting these cards (especially since you're not playing any wheel effects).

- Creature Copy/Stealing. This one is also pretty thin, but if you keep it consider adding Memnarch (flavor win!) and Rite of Replication .

- Thopters. This is worth keeping with a little more support. Consider adding Hangarback Walker . Maybe Sharding Sphinx ? If you do go harder on this strategy, look at Favorable Winds .

- Card draw. Already strong, but with this commander I'd go for even more. Surprised not to see any of the X draw spells like Pull from Tomorrow . Another idea is replacing counter/unsummon effects with cantrip versions like Exclude or Drag Under .

As for mana, do you own a Caged Sun or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Both are clutch in mono-color decks. Last, since you're playing artifacts, suggest replacing some of the high CMC beaters like Inkwell Leviathan with things you can cheat out like Metalwork Colossus .

ClockworkSwordfish on Azorius - Over Your Head

Between Pride of the Clouds and Thunderclap Wyvern, I'd try and go all-in on the flying theme! Favorable Winds , Warden of Evos Isle and Esper Stormblade would all be useful additions to that end.

Cafelattis on Mono U Tempo!!!! The Mono blue deck I like

The decklist looks cool, some suggestions. If you are going to run Delver of Secrets  Flip you are gonna need a lot more spells and scrying so that it can be flipped more consistantly (Also run 4 of Delver, and 4 Pteramander. Cut out Mistcloaked Herald). That also works well with Pteramander so you can adapt it a bit easier. The one thing that you REALLY should run is Remand , it is a great tempo play, and you also draw another card. Spell Pierce is great. Serum Visions for the scrying. A great budget option for blue is Nimble Obstructionist , since it is a flying threat with flash AND can counter any activated or triggerd ability you do not control. Depending on your budget you really cannot go wrong with Snapcaster Mage , since you can reuse any spell. Vendilion Clique is great for tempo, another threat in the air and lets you take an important card from your opponents hand it is great against combo decks. I would take out Favorable Winds since it is a bit slow and Pteramander , Tempest Djinn and Delver of Secrets  Flip are great finishers, seems a bit redundant. Not so sure about the Unstable Mutation but i do se the appeal of it. These are just some suggestions and it kinda depends on what direction you want to take it in, your budget and if you want it to be competative. Hope this helps in any way.

Heya Fans, and welcome back to our show. After some practice with our potential new hires we come to our first look at what fresh acts we can bring to the audiences.

After much hiring and firing, then rehiring again, and many hours of choreography, I am happy to report we have had decent results. And that I'm convinced there could be physical changes made. If you disagree or think of something better, please share your thoughts in the comments.


End Hostilities - Supreme Verdict : One mana less, and unstoppable.

Fumigate - Cleansing Nova : Having choices is always better.

Disperse - Unsubstantiate : Not quite a counterspell but at least we know what'll be in their hand.

Rewind - Lay Bare : Theme fitting, like cost.

Dragonlord Ojutai - Dream Eater : Smaller beater, better effect.

Overwhelming Denial - Dissipate : Needs more testing to be sold. No big change really.

Angel of Condemnation - Admonition Angel : We lose the reactive ability, but I see this being a useful tool for clearing blockers, and for political plays.

These changes aren't so deck altering as some of the others I am still considering, but I'm still not 100% on them. Need some outside input.

Wandering Eye or Fog Bank - Ingenious Thief : Eye gives away our own information, Fog does nothing against trample. Thief however can be blinked and doesn't pose a large threat stats wise.

Hanna, Ship's Navigator - ???: Closest things I could find that flies is Razor Hippogriff , Sanctum Gargoyle , and Griffin Dreamfinder but that only covers half. Or is this ability really necessary, can we work around our toys being removed and use this spot to fit something new?.

Azorius Keyrune & Ojutai Monument : for lack of a better word they seem 'cute' now. They seemed useful at first because they turned into flying creatures that shared the benefit other flyers do. Better rocks? Keep? Replacements could include Fellwar Stone , Basalt Monolith could be blinked with Brago... unsure what else is good and not overly expensive.

Favorable Winds : Is it really necessary, amid the other +'s it seems the least shiny, even though it's foiled.

Stay tuned for more to come! We're always trying to keep fresh acts, and as accidents happen replacement performers will hopefully be swift coming. Don't forget the suggestion and vote box on your way out. See you next time at The Circus!

Flawless_Sin on Cheap Flyer Deck

Good start. To pump your fliers use Favorable Winds . I would replace Curiosity for Curious Obsession if your budget permits. And maybe Jace's Phantasm as a cheap solution for graveyard decks. Good luck!

pretty solid deck, any thoughts on Favorable Winds might be decent with the amount of flyers in the deck
