Flying Men Discussion

zanesebo on Edric's Aggressive Diplomacy

3 weeks ago

I really enjoy this deck! And thanks for your comment on mine. I'm a budget player, so a lot of the choices you've made wouldn't exactly work for me. However, I've been really sleeping on that Wirewood Symbiote combo. I have most of the important elves for that to be effective, so I'll be adding that card to the mainboard for sure. I also really like Plaxmanta . I've never seen this card before, and I think it works fantastic in the deck. I considered Bident of Thassa and Druids' Repository before, but seeing it in this deck convinced me to add them.

I think Hypnotic Siren could be a good replacement for Flying Men or Cloud Pirates . It's basically the same thing, but it can be used mid-late game if needed to steal a bothersome creature from an opponent. Jace's Phantasm and Hope of Ghirapur are also 1/1 flying creatures that can be useful mid-late game. I also think One with Nature is good ramp in this deck because of the evasive creatures.

Seeing how aggressive this list seems, you should definitely go with Djinn. The specter seems totally off here.

If I've been counting correctly, you have five empty slot. As this is basically a Flying Men deck, you should definitely include a playset of Curious Obsession . To stay true to the aggro plan, some number of Dive Down should be your choice for the control spell.

Looking your deck over, I love how you're avoiding stax. I want to with my deck as well. My list is an agro deck utilizing cards like Coastal Piracy , Edric, Spymaster of Trest , Favorable Winds , and Coat of Arms . Kind of a classic Flying Men deck, but with wizards.

I love all the untapping shenanigans you have and I love your wizard-based combos. I would love to incorporate them into my list but a bunch of the core pieces are out of budget, like Intruder Alarm and Enlightened Tutor . Not all of them though!

First of all, Sol Ring

Craterhoof Behemoth is a strong finisher in a go-wide strat like flying men. You can also add a Natural Order for a second copy at half the cost.

If you feel like you could use another board wipe, Evacuation is efficient and has strong tempo potential.

Nostalgic Dreams could certainly replace one of your regrowths; I think Call to Mind is sub-optimal.

Delay , Abjure , and Arcane Denial are all really efficient counterspells that are worth considering.

I think this deck needs more Flying Men , they're not hard to find so I won't bother listing a bunch, but I will mention Blinkmoth Nexus as it's often overlooked in Edric.

I noticed you're not running any non-creature removal, I'd recommend Natural State and Nature's Claim at least.

SynergyBuild on Arena "Modern"

Boza Really? Do you know how many Flying Men and vanilla 3/2s for 3 have been made?

Tons of random gain life taplands, vanilla creatures, or creatures with... trample or reach (or both like Archweaver , yeah that'll take days to code).

But SynergyBuild, tons of spells are in this game... like Firebolt or Advent of the Wurm , or complex multi-lined creatures like Ambush Krotiq .

While I understand there are complex cards, perhaps replacement effects like dredge, etc. could be difficult to make (but once done the code can be copied over from Darkblast to Golgari Thug ), and the mythics and walkers that need voices and animations can be difficult to get, but a vast majority are super easy to make. 50% could be done by just putting art and the keywords on the cards. Random discard spells, burn, countermagic, card draw, ramp, tutors, fatties, dorks, taplands, duals, etc. could all be so easy to make and the other 50% would just be cards with keywords like Battalion they'd create and copy between everything.

HalbrechtHalbrecht on Suicide Black? I prefer Suicide Blue!

Blue isn't very strong in mana acceleration, sadly. There's the obvious "Use mana rocks" answer, but here's some older cards you might prefer:

High Tide is probably the best, because it produces blue mana.

Apprentice Wizard is a blue mana dork. He'll net you two colorless mana.

Energy Tap might also be of use, though I don't prefer the sorcery speed. It's also colorless mana, though in conjunction with all Islands, that might work for you. However, none of your creatures have a terribly high CMC. The most this will net you is {3}, and it's completely useless with Flying Men . It also goes against the goal of this deck, which is to attack or tap down creatures with Old Man.

Mana Drain is extremely expensive (even its reprint in Iconic Masters is like $50!). But obviously amazing if you can afford it.

Turnabout is an interesting one. It gives you a flexible answer to different situations, and in the late game when you have, say, 7 lands, it'll net you 3 mana.

Of all of those, I'd most recommend High Tide , since it's closest to the "ritual" effect you were wanting and produces blue mana. Turnabout would be my next pick.

to save everyone some time;

@justinhohenshelt - it's in the deck already. It's an instant (one of the reasons why it's good), so you might be missing it. ctrl+f for it

@enpc - there was a discussion about it on Edric discord and everyone, including Allergymedsandcats, agreed that the deck has wide enough selection of attackers that we can be picky, so a simple " Flying Men with a slight upside" doesn't cut it these days. There is a guide for grading attackers in the primer so this all could make more sense if you take a look there. But it's cool that budget versions just got a new solid attacker.

How has this deck not hit the ban list yet. Also, needs more Flying Men in my opinion though (a pseudo-Storm Crow in the 99).
