Rustwing Falcon Discussion

LordBlackblade on Which is better?

5 months ago

Helica Glider is more versatile, but more expensive. Snickering Squirrel is arguably better in a deck that relies heavily on dice rolls.

Rustwing Falcon is strictly better than Storm Crow if you are running white.

Context is very important, and very few cards can be effectively evaluated in a vacuum. If you want effective assistance with this, you need to provide that context.

Winged Words seems great for this deck. I like Faerie Seer or Spectral Sailor much better than Rustwing Falcon but I'm guessing it's kind of hard for this deck to have a turn one blue mana ready, but I personally would try to make it work. Love the deck +1 from me!

Have you found Hero of Precinct One to be paying off? imo, the deck would work better w/ 4x History of Benalia and leaning more into plains in the manabase. I also played around with a lot of Healer's Hawk and the lifelink always felt great if I could successfully mentor it. That said, Rustwing Falcon ended up being my card of choice in this style deck because it doesn't die to Goblin Chainwhirler or Fanatical Firebrand + after being mentored it can attack into or block a Thief of Sanity or an early Hydroid Krasis without dying.

Sneaking Pleisiosaur

Creature - Dinosaur


Whenever Sneaking Pleisiosaur attacks and isn't blocked, the player it is attacking, or controller of the planeswalker it is attacking may discard a card. If they do, draw a card.

Enrage - Whenever Sneaking Pleisiosaur is dealt damage, each opponent discards a card. You draw cards equal to the number discarded that way.


I'd like to see a pushed common, like Rustwing Falcon , Healer's Hawk , War Falcon or Hunted Witness .

These seem weird to be common, but not broken as 1-drops.

Hey man! Nice idea. A suggestion for you and some cards to consider.

  • I would try and make this more focused and have more 3 and 4 copies of cards, and less 1 and 2 copies. What is your main goal? How does your deck win? Right now, it's a bit all over the place. If you want to, I could remake this deck into a deck that can stand its own at FNM, taking into account things such as sideboard and budget restrictions. If you don't want me to do that, I completely understand. Having someone else make a deck for you is kind of boring, and takes the fun out of deckbuilding.

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

Got something similar in my mind, but why Rustwing Falcon,Healer's Hawk could make a better job.

Hey Wayneh73! Thanks for the comment.

I've been debating between Rustwing Falcon, Healer's Hawk and Hunted Witness for the 1-drop slot. I'm not high on Hunted Witness, and I think it's a metagame call for the birbs. If aggro is very prevalent or 2 power creatures aren't showing up, I would completely agree with Healer's Hawk. Even still, Mentoring Rustwing Falcon into a 2/3 flyer turns it into a solid attacker and defender, what with the Thorn Lieutenants, Ravenous Chupacabras and History of Benalia knights running around.

I will have to try Healer's Hawk out, though. Thanks!
