Gadianten on Bird Tribal Attempt with +1/+1 counters

6 months ago

I love tribal decks and I have only seen a couple of bird decks but not any that build around counters and with the built in evasion that seems a pretty viable way to run them; I think a few of the picks are sub optimal so I compiled a some bird choices that might be interesting depending on how your meta is built. I also think you could stand to some more card draw to help fuel the tribal beat down, all in all I think this looks fun and I will enjoy seeing it evolve as you tweak it over time. +1

Cheap useful birds: Baleful Strix , Judge's Familiar , River Hoopoe , Sage Owl , Spire Owl , Stormscape Familiar , Thrummingbird

Interesting and useful birds: Aven Sunstriker , Wingmate Roc , Kathari Remnant , Lieutenant Kirtar , Nimble Obstructionist

Birds matter: Kangee, Aerie Keeper , Keeper of the Nine Gales , Crookclaw Elder

Tribal stuff: Door of Destinies

Non creature draw: Guardian Project , Greater Good

Fun stuff: Battle Screech , Beck / Call

MCJennings on Ramos Dragon Engine

Much appreciated! I have to say I think it's the most fun deck I've built yet. Thus far every win has been off the top and unexpected. Probably my favorite inclusion of what you mentioned is Possibility Storm for how much it 1) does not hinder Ramos' cascade minded build 2) Hoses combo decks entirely 3) Doubles up cast triggers & storm count for yourself. Potential to hard lock combo with Lavinia, Azorius Renegade but I'm too much a coward to run her since her being cloned or stolen would hose a literal 1/5 of the deck haha.

I know the counter doublers are common in Ramos, but I've found he becomes plenty lethal & ramp already and that his real struggle is keeping up with draw & protecting him - I just added Padeem, Consul of Innovation & multiple modal counterspells. Fear of the "win more" aside, I do think I want to test out Corpsejack Menace at some point. I may also be more hesitant because I already run Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as a commander and I'd rather avoid too much overlap.

I wanted to ask about your inclusion of Phyresis as your infect source- is it not an issue to cascade into it pre-Ramos? Or do you hold your cascade til after he's out?

Your Conflux setup with Cloudshift to "reset" ramos, Congregation at Dawn and Maelstrom Wanderer - what's the line from there? Value town or is there an infinite/lock I'm missing?

Is Past in Flames part of a combo or just value? Any advantage I'm missing to it over Mizzix's Mastery ? Flashback reuse in case it's cascaded into prematurely?

In your article you mentioned the benefit of running modal counterspells (charms) for cascade synergy- I see none now but I do see Trap Essence . What made you decide to make that transition? Ramos gets to 5 counters and is "online" but it could also do nothing on an unlucky cascade. AKA could you please sell me on it vs Dromar's Charm ?

How would you rate Kathari Remnant ? I'm indecisive on adding more cascade and if so which ones.

I think many try to go "all in" with Sunforger by including Tithe , Mistveil Plains , Stoneforge Mystic , etc. but I think it'll work better for Ramos just as as it is. Your deck atm is already 10 potential targets inclusive to counterspells, protection, draw, removal, search... I'm not sure yet but I think it should work well.

Hope I'm not overloading, just excited for a new deck and there's zero other Ramos players in any of my meta.

Kemokyle on Help me cut cards for ...

I think you're splitting your focus between ETB/Evasion creatures and setting up the top of your library for Yuriko's triggered ability a bit too much.

Cuts I recommend: Metallic Mimic - Is a ninja, buffs ninjas, but no evasion built in so will be harder to trigger Yuriko. You've got enough creature type fixing to gain more benefit off Yuriko triggers than an extra counter.

Kathari Remnant - I feel like most of your cuts are going to come from your 1-3 drops since you want a higher average CMC for Yuriko's triggers, so the cascade will be lackluster.

Amoeboid Changeling - Once one of your board-wide subtype changers hits the board (especially since you're tutoring for them), since this doesn't have evasion, I don't think it'll see much use.

Consign // Oblivion - The bounce is nice, 2 discards from someone is a little meh. But feel like you can just have creatures that bounce your board to gain more benefit like Faerie Impostor.

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive - Besides herself, you only have 4 creatures in your list with power/toughness 1 that don't already have evasion built in, 3 of which are ninjutsu creatures that will likely be unblocked anyways.

Dragonlord Silumgar - Good CMC for Yuriko's trigger, and a nice ETB effect. But they get the creature back when you ninjutsu him away, and he's a little pricey to tack onto a ninjutsu cost to regain the same target.

You should had Kathari Remnant since he is a multicolored skeleton!

PriestessKikyo1 on Too many lands

I would switch out Kathari Remnant... for almost anything else. The reason being is its going to cause you to dump all of your lands into exile, because you have so many of them before your cascade hits a non-land card.

Cool deck! Gonna build a Ninja deck myself after picking up the Planechase Anthology box and yours inspires me. Just a question though about Kathari Remnant. Why are you playing that, instead of Will-o'-the-Wisp? Is the cascade really worth it?
