Ornithopter Discussion

rbroyles on Azorius Winds

1 week ago

I've been tinkering with a VERY similar deck. I cut out all the 3 drop fliers though and included Skyship Plunderer (can boost Storm Fleet Aerialist), another Chart a Course and even 2 Reverse Engineer (may play more). I haven't play tested this yet, but I'm actually considering a 4 of for Ornithopter and adding another Reverse Engineering. Basically, load the board up as fast as I can, find as many Favorable Winds as possible, and hope I can overwhelm the opponent. Also, using Prepare//Fight for surprise removal/life gain/damage to the face and Unsummon to try and buy just a liiitle bit more time. Bottom line is everything is very low to the ground and flying out fast :).

Also, definitely sideboarding a full playset of solemnity.

Cragon18 on Tezz Seems to Have an Invisible Touch

Thanks for the comment and +1 backinajiffy. I have found Treasure Map  Flip to be so good that I just want to see it every game. I could see dropping to 3 copies and maybe doing a one of Metalspinner's Puzzleknot as you suggested for an additional cantrip and tezzeret's touch target, or I could go ahead and add the 4th Herald because that card is insanely good. Thanks again and I'll let you know how testing goes!

Thanks for the comment and +1 Chewy5150. I only currently have a single copy of Tezz so I did not add him to the deck. I have been meaning to do some playtesting with the one copy to see if it's worth adding him/more copies of him. I do not deny that he would be great in the deck though. I have found the artifact lord to be medium. Benefits are that he makes my Ornithopter and Hope of Ghirapur more potent in the event I cannot find my enchantment or a herald so that I have at least a small path to victory. He also is great at eating up removal. Many opponents don't like the idea of a lord on the battlefield and use removal on him instead of my 5/5 or Herald. However, there are times when he is just a 2/3 for 3. I could see replacing him for Contraband Kingpin rather than Foundry Inspector. Kingpin helps filter for my win-cons and also helps block against aggro with some lifegain where the inspector dies to Shock and dies in combat much more easily. Thanks again!

I replaced both Kami of the old Stone, and Looming Altisaur for Ornithopter and Phyrexian Walker. A 2/2 flyer for 0 and a 3/3 for 0. Thoughts?

Aqueous Form should be useful.

And maybe Ornithopter for some early game Ninjutsu triggers?

Aaerys on Mono Blue — Counter/Copy

1 week ago

TheRedGoat Thank you! I didnt even notice those cards, Ill definitely playtest both.

Visually, Ornithopter seems like a great addition, the second one is also nice, however with Dinos taking over standard at the moment, Im more cautious of creature spells.

Thank you for your help!

I know they're not great but why not run Ornithopter or Hope of Ghirapur? They are still standard legal.

Sheet on Purphoros, The Token God

2 weeks ago

Just some ideas:

Panharmonicon is a ton of fun in Purphoros decks.

Shifting Shadow has been amazing for me, but I run dragons as a sub theme in my list. It's slightly less good if you mainly run non-creatures, but can potentially deliver a shocking one-of, surprise Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre (or whatever you choose to run). Indestructible means Shifting Shadow moves on to find another creature but your indestructible creature remains.

I like running a few Wheel of Fortune effects in my list to refuel my hand.

Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista work really well. Also, the free-drop creature cards like Ornithopter, Endless One, Crimson Kobolds, Crookshank Kobolds, Kobolds of Kher Keep, Memnite, Phyrexian Marauder, Phyrexian Walker, Shield Sphere, and Shifting Wall are good options if you have room for them and want to lower your curve.
