Loyal Pegasus Discussion

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.

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.

Mermaidsheep Yeah I took it out while I was still deck building for Preeminent Captain, but I didn't like it, and forgot to put it back in, also Loyal Pegasus is now Isamaru, Hound of Konda because I didn't like it that much, and I used the extra card for another Path to Exile.

I think the deck has a good basis using Brave the Elements to sneak past any blockers. However, if you want to have a reasonable chance winning against some of the top modern decks, you're going to need to have:A)More impactful creaturesB)More ways to interactC)A tighter list overall (more 4-ofs)
Of the mainboard, the only cards I think are decent are: Dryad Militant, Fleecemane Lion, Loxodon Smiter, and Wilt-Leaf Liege. It seems you're on a budget, but I think there are a few cheap G/W creatures that would greatly improve your list. I would use Qasali Pridemage over Elvish Hexhunter. They are very similar, except the Exalted on Qasali Pridemage and no need to tap it makes it considerably better. Loyal Pegasus, Selesnya Guildmage, Topplegeist, Watchwolf, and Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers are simply too slow, to unreliable, and too unimpactful for modern. There is definitely an allure to having creatures that are both G/W, but you have to consider the individual power of your cards as well. I'd strongly encourage playing some number of Selfless Spirit, though they are somewhat expensive. Advent of the Wurm is also a card I highly suggest if you're on a budget. This card creates a huge surprise for your opponent and gives you some more late game, especially if Collected Company is out of your budget. Soldier of the Pantheon, Scavenging Ooze, Boon Satyr, and Experiment One are also potential options for good creatures.
As far as ways to interact with you're opponent, Blessed Alliance, Selesnya Charm, Celestial Flare, and Oblivion Ring are decent options if Path to Exile is out of your budget. I highly suggest cutting all of the enchantments to make room for these cards. The only enchantment I'd consider keeping is Shield of the Oversoul which could surprise an unprepared opponent and steal you the game.

So I have to apologize on this one. After a bunch of additional digging I am seeing a theme that abilities like Loyal Pegasus' ability is not seen as similar to a cost payment. In this situation, if the second creature is able to also attack with Pegasus, it must. I see that Lame_Duck beat me to it.
See judge blog:
The distinction is odd in my eyes, but there you have it.
Again my apologies for misleading.
No data for this card yet.
