Scryb Sprites Discussion
2 months ago
Gaea's Skyfolk v Scryb Sprites/Spire Tracer/Treetop Scout? Burgeoning v Exploration? I consider it much faster, even if it's removal bait. Elvish Spirit Guide v Mana Crypt or something similar? This deck seems very color demanding.
Hope this helps

This is an awesome list! I was contemplating something like this a while ago, but I had no idea where to start. I'm so glad you started this! I'll definitely add this to the list of lists.
As for your comment on Volcanic Eruption and other color-hate cards, don't feel bad about leaving them out. I would not consider them eligible for this list either. Color-hate between & is actually pretty normal, as well as color-hate (versus enemy colors) of some degree in all colors. like Black Knight that one card that turns all mountains into plains, or something like that.
Also: Scryb Sprites
And: do you think Goblin Gaveleer would count? He always seemed odd to me, like he should be & human instead.

Some stuff you could consider
Uktabi Drake: Aggro
Ifh-Bff Efreet: Against green this is suicide, but against everyone else this is a 3/3 flying for 4
Giant Dustwasp: Great draw in an opening hand. Not so great later.
Scryb Sprites: I mean... it's as effecient as flyers get for green.
Skinshifter: Does this count?
Faerie Noble: lol you ready for that green faerie tribal?

Budget Friendly Decks:
Talrand, The Sky Summoner: simply fill with counters and other instant and/or sorceries and attack with your drake army. Runechanter's Pike is a good addition as well as Bident of Thassa/Coastal Piracy.
Purphoros, God of the Forge: Have to second this one as I main this. any token spell makes quick work on your opponents. Goblins have the most synergy simply for things like Skirk Prospector, Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Matron, ect. In other words goblins offer tutors for other goblins and are also very prolific.
Karametra, God of Harvests: She is actually pretty darn fun. I built mine quasi-group hug with Heartwood Storyteller, Rites of Flourishing, and Horn of Greed simply for extra card draw and the latter we will abuse to no end. She flies under the radar until your Llanowar Elves and whatnot produce 20+ lands... She also works great as a Landfall general but I wouldn't focus on it. Oh! and she works great with Panglacial Wurm; no one expects a 9/5 trample to get whipped out of nowhere simply for casting Llanowar Elves.
Zada, Hedron Grinder: goblin tribal. All you have to do is throw out a bunch of goblins, cast a cheap cantrip or two (like Accelerate and/or Balduvian Rage) on Zada and in no time you'll have 20+ 26/26 trample, haste goblins and more cards than you know what to do with in hand.
Doran, the Siege Tower: Can be built several ways: goodstuff (albeit more expensive), treefolk tribal (not my cup of tea, very limited), or big butts attack. The latter can be done easily on a budget using cards like Yoked Ox or Tasseled Dromedary. Doran himself is about ~$10 but that can be the most expensive card in the deck.
Edric, Spymaster of Trest: I feel dirty suggesting this one. Add in mana dorks, cheap evasive weenies like Scryb Sprites or Gudul Lurker. Ideally skip all the 2-3 drops, the first 2 turns you want to drop 1 drops so on turn three when Edric comes out you can attack to net cards. As mentioned earlier with Talrand, Coastal Piracy/Bident of Thassa act as Edric replacements. Most people have caught on to his shenanigans by now. You could over time upgrade him too adding in extra turn spells and ways to return them to your hand (like via Eternal Witness).

i figured most the suggestions wouldnt be any good but i was bored, but this time i think i actualy have a few good ones, to start off with, Jace's Phantasm at worst it's a 1/1 flyer for 1 blue, next, Deprive is a definite add in this deck, i'd suggest replacing Hydroblast with it, also Delay is a good addition and Annul is really good, i would say use Remand over Unsubstantiate but you already have enough draw, and Unsubstantiate doubles as a Boomerang, Chain of Vapor could be very good over Disperse especially in a multi player game because often ppl will not target you back with it becuase you have mostly 1 drops, they will target someone else and it ends up being basically a 2 for 1, Gemstone Caverns for some good early game ramp, Cavern of Souls if you can afford it, it add protection 4 your commander and hits about 7-8 creatures if u call elves and about 5 if you call rogues, Merfolk Spy, Jhessian Infiltrator, Surveilling Sprite, and Faerie Impostor increase the rogue count all though i doubt any of your creatures will get countered, your better off adding to your faerie count with Zephyr Sprite, Surveilling Sprite, Faerie Impostor, Mothdust Changeling , Scryb Sprites and Cloud Sprite for Spellstutter Sprite, Signal Pest is good, has evasion and is kinda like an anthem,Notorious Throng is real good if you get your rogue count up, take an extra turn and get some 1/1 flying faeries, heck yeah, also almost forgot, Spellskite is pretty good its cheap adds a decent blocker plus additional protection for edric and it can shut down/slow down many deck types and commanders, slows down tron builds, meren builds and flicker builds,

I like to think it was Xira Arien, so:
Xira, Guest of Honor
Legendary Creature - Insect Wizard
If a source would destroy Xira, Guest of Honor, regenerate her unless that source's controller pays .
Whenever a creature attacks you, draw a card and that creature doesn't untap during it's controller's next untap step.
2 / 3
Trying to think of some other things a fancy Insect Wizard might do.
Let's see a green Faerie like Scryb Sprites, only more interesting.

What all the 1/1 fliers like Scryb Sprites? Are you trying to trigger draw off of Edric?

Totally fine, thanks for the credit JonAvon.The deck has definitely been updated since the post, theres some amazing Pendelhaven/Elves/Scryb Sprites abuse that helps the deck survive zoo a little better. Replace Crumble with Scavenger Folk for more 1/1's, add another Tracker and a Giant Growth, oh and Gaea's Liege is cute, but for a more competitive feel, replace it with Ernie.
