Favorable Winds Discussion

Zappter on Tezzeret, Master of Djinns

I think your Sideboard is a little not consistent with a deck idea. We have to beat down our opponent very quickly and we have to stick to this plan. I was playing very similar deck based on Favorable Winds, so I guess we can use this same list of cards but with a little changes.

2x Blink of an Eye and 2x Unsummon - I was playing those in my Main Deck because the are allow us to go through enemy lines getting rid of scary, big flyers or opponent's bombs. You are playing 4x Dive Down instead of upper spells because of Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp and Tempest Djinn.

3x Admiral's Order - Great card against Mass Removal like Settle the Wreckage or other Instant Speed Removals because we are paying 1 Blue Mana instead of 3 Mana after our attack declaration. Still a 3 mana Couter Spell for something bad.

2x Silent Gravestone - Because Gifts and Zombies decks.

2x Sorcerous Spyglass - Planeswalkers and Combo pieces.

3x Negate - Against Control Matchups.

1x River's Rebuke - It may be useful and "Save a Game".

I hope I helped somehow :)

Entweder 3 Inseln oder 2 Inseln und ein Cycle Land rausnehmen.

Mystic Remora würd ich auf jeden Fall reinnehmen. Eine meiner Lieblingskarten für Decks mit vielen Instants und Sorcerys ist Sphinx-Bone Wand, damit kann man Kreaturen abschießen oder auch den Gegner pingen, während man seine Zauber countert ^^

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur ist ne gute Möglichkeit. Ansonsten sind, wenn ich das richtig sehe, grade Favorable Winds und Telepathy neu drin, kann das sein? Finde ich beide ziemlich gut für das Deck.

Stasis würde ich nicht mit reinnehmen, dafür fehlt dir die Synergie, die du vorher hattest.

Schwierig wird es nur, was man für den Sphinx-Bone Wand rausnehmen könnte, falls du den denn auch spielen willst :)

RedUndead40 I’m pretty new to this with a very small sample of matches and I greatly appreciate the advice of someone more experienced with the deck, but here is some of my reasoning for my current choices:

I have considered Curious Obsession before but my main problem seems to be a lack of things to do on turn one. It still might be worth the slot though. I have also had Remand in the main in the past but I cut them because when I don’t have a Rattlechains I can never seem to afford to keep mana up for them. Even when I do counter something important it is rarely enough of a Tempo swing to kill them except against big mana decks (which seem to be one of my worst matchups anyway). And it just seems to be a liability in so many matchups (affinity, burn, etc). I feel that with the two Phantasmal Images I probably have enough lord effects and so Favorable Winds isn’t necessary. And Think Twice Seems similar to Opt but slower, and I think I’d just rather run Opt since it gives me another turn 1 play. I totally agree that I would rather have Remorseful Cleric in the sideboard, but I think I need a critical mass of spirits to maximize the value of my lords, and an on tribe Stormfront Pegasus isn’t really that bad. And then sometimes it randomly hates on your opponent’s graveyard effects. I would love to hear a suggestion for a better 1 or 2-drop spirit to take its place in the main though, as I think it is my weakest link. I’ve even considered running Topplegeist to fix my turn 1 problem and my critical mass problem, but it’s just not a good card.

I also play UW Spirits. I'd say drop Opt and sideboard Remorseful Cleric for a playset of Mana Leak.

I run a couple Favorable Winds as well but that's up to you, it's not necessary. Remorseful Cleric should definitely be sideboard though.

Also I love to run a few cards to refill your hand. I'm a pretty big fan of Curious Obsession. Yeah it has the downside of any aura but it's cheap and therefore easy to protect with a Mana Leak or Rattlechains in handd, or if Drogskol Captain is out, the power bump is nice, and it can give you a nice advantage over a couple of turns. Alternatively you could run Think Twice since it can be cast reactively if you don't need to counter something or flash in a spirit.

Ravenrose, thanks for the suggestions. At one point I had quicksilver, but I took it out for more dragons. I still have some cheaty cards in, but sometimes playing a dragon straight up is just as useful instead of the investment into a card like quicksilver imo. Wild Pair acts kind of like Lurking Predators and Favorable Winds I could see as useful. Where Ancients Tread looks fun for some good removal/burn along with most of the dragons.

I took a look at this deck and I have four ideas for this deck: Favorable Winds, Wild Pair, Where Ancients Tread and Quicksilver Amulet. I especially advise Wild Pair because it ensures your dragons come in doubly swift. You have your Ryusei come in with Kokusho at his side. One dragon comes in with a friend.

Great point, I do find Dreamcaller Siren highly situational, Hope of Ghirapur is much better, totally forgot that I had those. Curious Obsession is probably better than Favorable Winds due to presence of dive down . Opt and Chart a Course are nice but I found that they slow down the deck a lot and with them it stands no chance against current meta aggro decks.
