You dont need to worry about the competitive level of a deck. It doesn't really mean a whole lot on this site lol.

How I usually play my Feather, the Redeemed is ONLY if I have a draw engine in hand, or have Sunforger on the field already. Otherwise I usually play like a stax deck as I tutor with smaller creatures. And yeah most of your tutors will be luck of the draw, which is why we try and include as many of them as possible.

All in all I can only really make changes to your deck based on how competitive your meta is, or what kind of decks they bring. for instance cards like Stonehorn Dignitary would never work in my deck since there is only one player in our group that cares about the combat step. Also when adding stax pieces like Intimidation Bolt you need as many Paradox Engine tutors as possible, since casting a card every turn in order to lock them down can be hard (also remember you wont ALWAYS need to cast Intimidation Bolt , since not everyone needs to attack for their deck to win).

ChibiNature How is this deck so far? I'm having trouble making that connection from having Feather, the Redeemed on the board to getting Sunforger into my hand.

If you take a look at my deck list you'll see that I've added Thalia's Lancers . Tell you the truth, it's great... and not that great. I don't have a tutor for it so I'm relying on luck of the draw (which sucks by the way).

You'll also see that I've added Stonehorn Dignitary which is great because I can tutor for it, and cast Cloudshift and lock down opponents that rely on combat to trigger their tricks or stop them from killing... ever. I found it easier to lock down opponents pre-Paradox phase by using only 1 White per opponent's turn instead of using Intimidation Bolt that costs 3 mana per opponent's turn (THAT'S 9 MANA!!).

I took out Boros Charm and it made my competitive level from 87% to 94%, go figure... I have no idea why it would go up that much.

VaalVanir Intimidation Bolt is a decent inclusion. I dont run it but I see a lot of other lists run it. You need to be careful with it tho, even if Feather, the Redeemed has 4 toughness. But having a recurring fog effect every turn is nice against the large number of mono green Craterhoof Behemoth combo decks out there as well.

Also do not underestimate infinite colorless mana. You can win the game off of a single cast of Aurelia's Fury , but honestly I wouldn't consider it if it didn't also let you tutor 2 cards with a single activation of Sunforger

ChibiNature I pulled Red Elemental Blast to put in Return to Dust against Zur's enchantments and send my Sunforger into a prison (See Oblivion Ring ). I kept Pyroblast for the Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck because fuck blue.

I kept Basalt Monolith because I'm not baller like you and have Grim Monolith and Mox Diamond . But the number of times that Basalt Monolith helped is quite high. Basically I have Basalt Monolith and two other mana rocks that give colored mana and i'm ready to tutor for Paradox Engine and Aetherflux Reservoir . Going infinite with colorless mana is almost unhelpful in this Feather deck.

I understand about pulling out Past in Flames and Smothering Tithe in favor of Aven Mindcensor and Aura of Silence .

How would you feel about Intimidation Bolt in this deck?

My playgroup has Zur and Atraxa and Geist of that stupid ghost. I'm thinking of putting Intimidation Bolt into the deck.

How are you finding Intimidation Bolt works for you? Also, with such a low land count do you find yourself Mulling alot?

My pet card for this deck is Veilstone Amulet . It puts in work.

You are a little creature light especially if you want a lot of targets for mirrorwing and zada. I see what you are going for with Swiftblade Vindicator but I think there are better creatures for this deck.

Psychotic Fury can't target zada or mirrorwing, so it didn't make my list.

Seize the Day underperformed for me. Without a lot of vigilance creatures it ended up doing the same as giving one creature double strike

Other considerations for the deck, Akroan Crusader , Path to Exile (can be used on your own tokens to ramp you), Goblinslide , Intimidation Bolt , Guttersnipe , Electrostatic Field , Thermo-Alchemist , Sentinel Tower , Reliquary Tower

Really nice list! Definitely more together than mine.

I love card choices like Burning Prophet and Tenth District Legionnaire . Those are dope. I also like Akroan Crusader as a way to make tokens! I’ll have to look for that one to add in.

I love Grapeshot and Long Road Home too.

You’ve reminded of a few cards I definitely have that i need to find like Shelter and Intimidation Bolt . Definitely better than some of the cards I’m currently running.

Not sure if you decided against it but i dont see Path to Exile in here. Could be a great add-in for ramp (obviously contextual if you dont have token generators) which could be a potential problem. So you may have already thought about that.

+1 Fellow Feather Friend!
