Pride of the Clouds Discussion

ClockworkSwordfish on Warden of Evos Isle Flying

I think you'd love a set of Pride of the Clouds. Even at two mana, he can easily be the biggest creature around. Soulcatcher is a similarly powerful two-drop, which can make your opponent hesitate to kill your other creatures. I'd also run Judge's Familiar or Cloudfin Raptor over Flying Men. Thunderclap Wyvern makes a good pseudo-lord (I find him more impressive than Archon of Redemption) especially with his ability to show up mid-combat.

Squadron Hawk gives you some card advantage, providing an army off just one card. Plus, it combos well with the Pride of the Clouds. Other efficient flyers that might interest you include Arctic Aven, Lyev Skyknight and Azorius First-Wing. Good luck!

PookandPie on derevi empyrial tactician

Hinder and Spell Crumple honestly aren't that great any longer since the tuck rule is gone (if a Commander would be tucked away into a library, they can choose to put it into the Command Zone now). Counterspell is a straight upgrade to one of those slots (tutor heavy decks would prefer the card being in the library versus the graveyard, plus 1 mana less), and Swan Song might be a good idea for the other as no one cares about 2/2 birds in a 40 life format.

Cyclonic Rift should be in. Overloading that gives you a late game option to swing in and claim a victory when you otherwise would have been behind. As for what to remove, Dovin Baan is cute but not really very good (his ultimate is Static Orb, but you could just run Static Orb if you want to be Stax Derevi as his other abilities aren't that great at once per turn for 4 mana).

Small creatures that grow or have evasion are great with Derevi. Pride of the Clouds is likely better than some of your other creatures.

Coastal Piracy is cute, but Rhystic Study would either draw you more cards or slow your opponents down: Both aspects are better for you.

It seems odd to run Perilous Forays in a list that doesn't make tokens over, say, Dawn's Reflection, which would net you 3 extra mana every time a creature of yours hits an opponent. Forays costs mana to use, as well, so you can't even properly loop Reveillark/Karmic Guide + a 2 power creature like you could, say, Martyr's Cause.

Vedalken Aethermage could just be Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling,

Also, you have Eldrazi Displacer as your blink enabler, but you don't have enough colorless sources or tutors to find those aforementioned sources. The only land you have that produces colorless mana is Reliquary Tower, and you have no way to tutor that card. The only other things in the whole deck that make colorless mana are Ashnod's Altar and Sol Ring, at least that I am seeing at a cursory glance. So, my suggestion is to add Adarkar Wastes, Brushland, and Yavimaya Coast to the mana base. Wooded Bastion, Mystic Gate, and Flooded Grove are easier to use, but also more expensive. In any place, 3-5 of these lands should replace things like Meandering Coast, Guildgates, etc., so that you increase the likelihood of being able to use Eldrazi Displacer if you draw it (because that diamond symbol means that you need colorless mana plus two of any other type). otherwise, switch Displacer to Deadeye Navigator as he's easier to use without changing your mana base right now.

CHANGELOG 29.05.17

Major overhaul to account for finalized archetypes.

CUTS:

GOLD:

WHITE:

BLUE:

BLACK:

RED:

GREEN:

None

ADDITIONS:

COLORLESS:

GOLD:

BLACK:

RED:

Note: With Welder and Daretti in the picture, I think its worth reconsidering whether we want Spine of Ish Sah. Its just pure value at that point (still slow to reduce opponents board presence, but you get your artifacts directly to the battlefield)

BLUE:

White:

A few thoughts:

If we want to include Eldrazi Displacer, then I think we have to keep the painlands, and should probably include some other colorless utility lands as well. I would be okay to lose some of the tap for any color lands as well as the artefact lands for this purpose. Its also possible that the Displacer is also just too good, in which case we can add the trilands over the painlands to give Simic Domain a bit more oomph.

Speaking of: Im not familiar with the enablers for Domain, so Im gonna be relying on you a bit to help flesh out the archetype. I look forward to your suggestions!

Anyways, let me know what you think about cuts/additions and I will make the changes. After that, we should probably just switch to cubetutor to get a better idea of where we are with each archetype.

maxon on I'm tired of playing other ...

I built a really budget mono flier deck in standard way back. It was really straight forward and put out a lot of pressure. It used mostly one and two costed creatures like Cloudfin Raptor, and Vaporkin to spew out a bunch of fliers, with the goal being that they at least needed to have power equal to the cost paid. I don't have it listed up here, but you could totally do something like that. If you went that route one card I would suggest especially is Pride of the Clouds (unfortunately I did not have access to this beast in standard). Good luck on finding something you love.

I didnt even think about Pride of the Clouds. Thank you! I will find a place for this in the deck

how are you not running Pride of the Clouds? Even without the bird creature type, it's insane. It buffs from all your fliers, AND everyone elses.

Some notes:

Do we include sigets? I think it might be a good idea.
