Healer's Hawk Discussion

Heal could be Bandage, which in almost every scenario will be better for you.

Healer's Hawk has been out for a while now. Have you made the switch? It should definitely be there over Suntail Hawk.

Icatian Javelineers can ping a Delver or something annoying for free.

Sunlance is great removal for mono-White. I would play it over Pressure Point. You could also just play Journey to Nowhere for the same cost.

Kor Skyfisher is one of the best common White creautres, period. It can pick up some of your utility lands in the mid game for extra value, or draw you an extra card with the Inspector, or if you play the Javelineers you can reset the counter for more ping, or you can reset a Journey to Nowhere onto a better target. I would definitely play that over Tundra Wolves.

I think you could cut to 17 lands with this deck. You won't need more than 2-3 lands and can easily keep 1-land hands in most cases. If you end up playing Battle Screech you might consider going up to 18-19 lands, though.

To beets:

I’m not a fan of Banehound. Yes, Banehound has Lifelink and Haste, which are good keywords. However, Banehound doesn’t do that much. I don’t want to see this card early because it is just a 1/1. Serra Ascendant is just better at for attacking on the ground, Healer's Hawk is better for attacking due to flying, and Segovian Angel is better if I’m defending. If I just want Banehound to be in the graveyard, Leyline Prowler is useful both on the field and in the graveyard. Arcane Signet is good, but isn’t the want the deck wants. Mana dorks for mana acceleration, trigger ETB effects such as Aura Shards, and sacrificing for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. As for Swiftfoot Boots and Shalai, Voice of Plenty, these two cards provide a Hexproof option if Kathril isn’t allowed to come into play. In my meta, the “play Kathril and beat face’’ plan might occur uncontested maybe twice before they understand the deck’s strategy. Therefore, I like having other sources of Hexproof. Also, Shalai protects my creatures and myself.


To ClockworkSwordfish:

You are correct about Questing Beast.

golgarigirlTriusMalarky the point is that with 2xFountain of Renewal, 1x Ajani's Welcome, 3x Revitalize and 4x Chaplain's Blessing I'll either use them to gain health or use it for storming with tokens. This also works with Archangel of Thune. If I get rid of Chaplain's Blessing I will have to have some sort of lifegain card, and with Resplendent Angel this card works perfectly, as it gives 5 health. If I were to run Angel of Vitality, I would have to waste a turn playing her in order to gain 1 more life per lifegain, and it won't even guarantee that i'll have over 25 health, while I could be casting Resplendent Angel. Relying upon enchantments and artifacts for lifegain could go wrong in being destroyed by a spell, while an instant is an instant. Sure, no one can protect against hand control, but regardless i don't think chaplain's blessing would be their first choice if they knew my strategy and saw my anointed procession in my hand. Hedron Crawler are like Pillar of Origins but not as good for angels. So, I would rather add more Pillar of Origins than Hedron Crawler; also Hedron Crawler is a creature which is more susceptible to being bolted or destroyed while Pillar of Origins is an artifact. Certainly Ajani's Pridemate would be very useful, but if I don't have something like 4x Healer's Hawk and multiple lifegain events triggered, it won't be a big card. However, that's why I have so many lifegain cards! So, yes, I'll consider Ajani's Pridemate!

Swilliam, thanks for the suggestions! I do indeed like Faerie Guidemother more, mainly because it flies. In the side, I have Rest in Peace to deal with cards like Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (yep, I know, you're suggesting something for the main instead of the side), and I like that Faerie Guidemother has the sorcery attached to pump a creature and give it flying (if it doesn't have it already).

Healer's Hawk I have sincerely considered a few times, and play tested it. It does work, and it is arguably as good as Faerie Guidemother, so that is definitely a solid card for this deck. Thus, it comes down to preference-- do I want some additional life gain (which has definite synergies with Resplendent Angel), or do I want to have a card that has two-cards-in-one, even if I only occasionally use the sorcery part? Good arguments going both ways, so my personal preference is Faerie Guidemother. If I were to cut something for Healer's Hawk it would be Skymarcher Aspirant, but I prefer that extra point of damage. Again, personal preference.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Hey, love the deck. It takes guts to play a few copies of Gisela, the Broken Blade without it's other half. I know you are quite fond of Fairy Godmother, but a few Mardu Woe-Reaper can help deal with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath without dipping into the sideboard. Healer's Hawk is pretty good as well, especially if you have an Always Watching or Benalish Marshal out.

Great job! I am a big fan of lifegain decks, and this is really good! I see you've got some Gideon's Company in there, which many people who do lifegain don't know about. I don't really see why Alseid of Life's Bounty is in there besides the one-drop lifelink deal because there are no enchantments to protect. You could replace one or two Alseids with some more Healer's Hawks. But if you want to keep your Aleids to protect enchantments, maybe try Oath of Kaya, which is okay because of the Orzhov colors and some lifegain. It would be best on the sideboard. Sorin's Thirst is pretty good as a sideboard card as well. Here's my idea for your sideboard:

2x Sorin's Thirst. 2x Oath of Kaya. 1x Kaya's Wrath. 2x Healer's Hawk. Maybe even some Banehounds!

So, finally, great job on the deck. You can put all my tweaks in the sideboard if you like, or even replace some maindeck cards. Great Job, 0riginal

Hello Vangoguey,

I see that your strategy is a white weenie flyers deck and I normally play white weenie for pioneer, so please see the below suggestions.

I recommend removing 2 Raise the Alarms and adding 2 Tithe Takers because with Tithe Taker's afterlife ability, you are getting at 2/1 and a 1/1 flyer for 2 mana, whereas with Raise the Alarm, you are getting two 1/1 creatures. Furthermore, Tithe Taker's taxing ability can slow down your opponent and this works in your favor as an aggro deck.

I see the Cavalry Pegasus' ability as a win condidion for this deck and, as a result, I recommend adding 2 Cavalry Pegasuss and removing 2 Healer's Hawks.

Similarly, I would add 2 Faerie Guidemothers instead of 2 Healer's Hawks because Faerie Guidemother's ability will pump one of your humans +2/+1 and give it flying, which would allow you to go over the top for damage.

Finally, your mana curve is low, so I recommend removing a plains and adding 1 more Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip because I can see her triggering often due to all the tokens that you are using. You could also add some

After awhile, if you find that you are dieing to decks with CMC 3 or less creatures, like red deck wins or mono black aggro, you may want to remove some of your [Giant Killer]s and replace them with Declaration in Stones as dec in stone exiles any creature for {1}{W}.

I hope that you find my recommendations useful in improving your deck.

Thanks,

Philosopher

Mana curve seems a bit high on this even with Warden of Evos Isle. There are a few Azorius Flyer decks out there, but they seem to go wide with cheap creatures and buff them with Rally of Wings, Staggering Insight, and Empyrean Eagle. This will help you put a lot more pressure on your opponent early in the game. Cheap and wide also makes you less vulnerable to removal.

You may want to try something like this: 4 Empyrean Eagle 4 Faerie Guidemother 4 Faerie Miscreant 4 Faerie Vandal 4 Healer's Hawk 4 Loyal Pegasus 4 Spectral Sailor 2 Winged Words 4 Rally of Wings 4 Staggering Insight 9 Island 9 Plains 4 Tranquil Cove
