Loyal Pegasus Discussion

I am trending away from global enchantments in favor of repeated life gain or creature generation in this batch of edits. I made sweeping edits in several categories:

  • Lands

Swapped out 8 Plains for Cryptic Caves, Desert of the True, Encroaching Wastes, Idyllic Grange, Karn's Bastion, Labyrinth of Skophos, Radiant Fountain and Secluded Steppe.

  • Defensive Auras

Upgraded Pious Interdiction to Recumbent Bliss (which would potentially provide many instances of life gain instead of 1) and dropped Bonds of Faith in favor of Gossamer Chains.

  • Offensive Auras

Upgraded Chosen by Heliod to Soaring Hope, Hope Against Hope to Spirit Mantle, Indomitable Will to Gift of Immortality and Ordeal of Heliod to Sunbond.

  • Sorceries

Upgraded from Blessed Reversal to Aetherflux Reservoir, Plea for Guidance to Silent Sentinel and added Pegasus Stampede for more ETB creature triggers.

  • Vanilla Creatures

Swapped out generic flyers (Armored Pegasus, Concordia Pegasus, Loyal Pegasus, Mistral Charger, Stormfront Pegasus, Wingsteed Rider) for ones with more ability or utility (Pegasus Charger, Plated Pegasus, Eiganjo Free-Riders).

  • Relevance

Bigger is not necessarily better so I opted to swap out Serra Avatar for Danitha Capashen, Paragon.

  • Defense and Removal

I swapped out Elspeth Conquers Death and Ghostly Prison in favor of Sacred Mesa and Monastery Mentor and Giant Killer for Frontline Medic.

  • Boost

I also replaced 3 boost effects (Commander's Insignia, Dictate of Heliod, Honor of the Pure) with 3 alternate win conditions (Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign, Archon of Redemption).

  • Life Gain

Replaced 3 less efficient or reliable life gain sources (Soldier of the Pantheon, Righteous Cause, Honden of Cleansing Fire) with better ones (Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Answered Prayers).

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

After playing with this deck for a good chunk of time, I found that Loyal Pegasus was not as good of a card as I thought. I'm thinking about replacing it with Faerie Guidemother . Thoughts?

Skymarcher Aspirant does not seem as good as Loyal Pegasus - Thoughts?

The archetype of "Flying Men" is certainly a fun one and cheaper than many other Canadian Highlander decks. A few suggestions one could make are the inclusions of cards like Preordain , Serum Visions , Dig Through Time and Ancestral Vision for card draw and card selection in addition Ponder and Opt which you have already included. Also, perhaps adding fetchlands to the deck could enable finding Watery Grave more easily. Moreover, Vendilion Clique would be a perfect fit for the deck. Last but not least, you could splash white for removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile , along with more flying one-drops such as Healer's Hawk , Duskborne Skymarcher , Loyal Pegasus , Suntail Hawk and more, as these creatures synergize with Favorable Winds , unlike other creatures in the deck like Triton Shorestalker , which do not. Sorry for the length of the response, hope it was even a tiny bit helpful. Nonetheless, Canadian Highlander is such a fun and diverse format, so just play what you enjoy most!

Another suggestion regarding your 1 and 2 cmc creatures. Keep in mind that many of those creatures will be outclassed very quickly in a multiplayer game. Some of them, such as Grand Abolisher, Imposing Sovereign, and even Boros Guildmage have great effects that scale well into the later stages of the game, but cards like Loyal Pegasus, Bomber Corps, and the like become dead draws after the first turn or two. You might consider cards like Mother of Runes or Selfless Spirit as early creatures that scale well into the late game. The same can be said about many of your 3 cmc creatures as well, though you're a bit more solid there.

I like the deck but I think you need to try lowering your mana curve; Modern is a brutally fast format and it's easy to fall behind if you end up with a clunky hand that doesn't do much in the early turns. Flyers are never going to be the most aggressive creatures, however, so I'd also look at creatures that help disrupt and slow the opponents game-plan.

I'd definitely look to add Selfless Spirit, Mausoleum Wanderer and Pride of the Clouds as they're just powerful creatures that fit what you're trying to do. Aven Mindcensor, Hushwing Gryff, Vryn Wingmare are Lyev Skyknight could be good additions, depending on what decks you expect to face (maybe just in the sideboard though). Cloudfin Raptor and Loyal Pegasus might be a little too unreliable but I'd give them a test as aggressive 1-drops. Squadron Hawk isn't that aggressive or disruptive but it's card advantage in creature form, which is useful.

To make space I'd start by removing the Dragonlord Ojutai and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, which while powerful don't really seem to fit the overall plan of the deck. Warden of Evos Isle might not be worth it anymore since I'm suggesting dropping the curve anyway and Nimble Obstructionist seems too situational to run 3 in the maindeck, although I've never played with it so maybe I'm underestimating it.

Also, Faerie Miscreant really seems like it should be either 4-of or 0-of and I'd consider 1 or 2 copies of Moorland Haunt.

In this deck, Windbrisk Heights is a win-more, the creatures here are mostly 2+ drops, and no tokens, so the 3 attackers is a sign of a win-condition. Windbrisk Heights can be used for card advantage, if reveals/scry are in play (move the bad cards to the bottom.) but with things like Aether Vial for mana, it won't be properly used.

If this deck ran Raise the Alarm/Gather the Townsfolk, or a bunch of one-drops (Dryad Militant, Soldier of the Pantheon, Dragon Hunter, Elite Vanguard, Expedition Envoy, Kytheon, Hero of Akros, Loyal Pegasus, War Falcon, etc.) then Windbrisk Heights would work, but for now it won't.
