Gustcloak Savior Discussion

psionictemplar on Cards That Protect Attackers?

Gustcloak Savior. Would something like that be what you are looking for? Kinda like having free attacks.

Oh man, I just saw the art for Aven Brigadier . Such a winner! And Commander Eesha is incredible! Crookclaw Elder and Gustcloak Savior are sweet value too. Bird Tribal has some fun value.

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.

SynergyBuild on Balan... No Longer on a Budget?

Sunspear Shikari, Champion of Arashin, and Gustcloak Savior are considerably bad, try a few cards like Winds of Rath, Inheritance for card draw, and Sword of the Animist for ramp.

Love Kaalia, though my deck (shameless plug: Still Better than Dan Brown...) doesn't bother with the dragons as I feel you have to give them a bit more support if you want to make use of the firebreathing abilities lots of them come with. If you've not seen it definitely look into the Dominaria card Helm of the Host which is just filthy with Kaalia. The earlier suggestion of Gustcloak Savior is a good one but you can get a similar effect from Dolmen Gate, which will be out earlier and so can protect Kaalia from her first swing. Plus you still get to do some damage. Do you have any draw/search plans? I know tutors are expensive but you may find yourself with no creatures in hand which is a waste if you want to go down the extra combat phases route. Even just a Phyrexian Arena will greatly raise the probability of drawing a playable creature as the game goes on, or there's Ob Nixilis Reignited who brings creature destruction along with him too! Finally, as you're not heavily into Angel Tribal I'd consider Dust Corona over Angelic Destiny. Cheap and simple way to make your flying Commander unblockable without blue.

griffstick on Tajic, hits with three

Well there's one more that works like that. Reconnaissance

And a few more cards you might like along side that theme. Gustcloak Sentinel, Gustcloak Savior, Gustcloak Runner, Gustcloak Harrier, and Gustcloak Cavalier

But definitely Reconnaissance
