There actually are a large amount of flying token generators in . Luminarch Ascension, Sacred Mesa, Entreat the Angels, and Emeria Angel are among the best. There is also Thopter Spy Network, Sharding Sphinx, Migratory Route, and Stolen by the Fae.

You also might want to consider Anointed Procession, Cathars' Crusade, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, or Divine Visitation if your budget allows for those cards.

This is my favorite deck of the month, for sure! I love pillow fort decks :3

Here's a few suggestions. Some are kinda weird, so bear with me here...

I remember back in a time, long ago, when no flying theme deck was complete without Radiant, Archangel. Alas, those days are probably passed.

Grind , Luminarch Ascension is a perfect fit for this deck,I just need to get one first. Same goes for Magus of the Moat. Hes about the only non-flier I could justify having in here. Sacred Mesa fortunately is already in the deck. Thanks for compliment and upvote!

thoughts about Luminarch Ascension over Sacred Mesa?
also i know it doesnt have flying but really Magus of the Moat seems like an mvp here

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).

Hey, since your deck is low budget consider adding more cards to take advantage of your best card? Your best card is Tymna :)

You have the right idea with wanting to add Kunoros and Kambal. Kunoros because of menace evasion, lifelink and it's a hatebear. Kambal because he can be a repeatable source of life gain. With Tymna you want more creatures who have evasion so they can more easily do combat damage.

White has many good budget flying creatures. Hatebears who fly and can also disrupt your opponents are good in multiplayer Commander: Aven Mindcensor, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Hushbringer, Tomik, Distinguished Advokist, Archon of Absolution. Flying creatures who can create flying tokens: Emeria Angel, Archon of Sun's Grace can be repeatable sources of flying creatures. You also want more repeatable sources of life gain to safely keep triggering Tymna: Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Wingmate Roc, Answered Prayers.

Cards that create flying tokens are nice to go wide which helps to attack more than one opponent. Spirit Bonds and Sacred Mesa can be repeatable source of flying tokens. Lingering Souls, Spectral Procession, Battle Screech, Midnight Haunting create flying tokens. Entreat the Angels can create a lot of 4/4 Angels. With more creatures with flying then you can play Sephara, Sky's Blade who has a powerful effect for flying creatures, has lifelink and other flying creatures reduce her casting cost.

Other budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Outlaws' Merriment makes a token at each of your upkeeps and I think that the variety of tokens they make can be pretty beneficial.

Sacred Mesa is similar to Luminarch ascension with how you can drain a lot of mana into it for tokens, but it is a bit more fragile with how it can blow itself up if you don’t have any of the tokens to sac.

For Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder:

Goma Fada Ox

Creature - Ox

Whenever Goma Fada attacks, target creature you control gains protection from colorless or from the color of your choice until end of turn.

If Goma Fada Ox would deal damage, it instead creates a copy of itself.


While this doesn't make use of his lifelink, it makes him a much better commander, is flavorful to him, and also does synergize with the double strike part.

For Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa:

A riff on Sacred Mesa

Zhalfir, Home of the Bellicose

Legandary Land

Zhalfir enters the battlefield tapped.

At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Home of the Bellicose unless you control at least two Pegasus and/or Horse creatures.

: Add

Whenever a creature you control with flanking attacks, create X 2/2 white Pegasus creature tokens with flying, where X is that creature's toughness.

I'd like a Red card for Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, or a card that synergizes with flanking, doesn't mention flanking itself, and is decidedly non-black. (Flanking give the -X/-X ability to nonblack colors flavorfully)
