Shimmering Wings Discussion

multimedia on Eutropia, an Enchanting Tour

2 months ago

Hey, more land auras are good ramp for your deck because they trigger Eutropia and other enchantresses. Utopia Sprawl, Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, Wolfwillow Haven, these could replace land ramp spells.

Hadana's Climb  Flip especially Winged Temple of Orazca which doubles power is good with Eutropia to make her a real threat to kill with Commander damage. Cephalid Constable has a busted combat damage trigger. Pump Constable with Eutropia and give it flying making it easier to do combat damage. As it gets bigger it can bounce more of your opponents permanents.

Incubation Druid (with a counter on it) + Freed from the Real + Shimmering Wings is infinite triggers of Eutropia. Incubation enchanted by Feed can make infinite blue mana and use that infinite mana to infinite cast, ETB and bounce Wings. Whip Silk can also do this except with green mana instead of blue.

Flooded Grove and Hinterland Harbor are Simic dual lands to consider adding.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

With that said, I would try to keep things low to the ground, like you have Rhystic Study in the maybe board but, you maybe better with Curiosity, Curious Obsession or even Military Intelligence. That said, Kindred Discovery and Coastal Piracy I think would work out as back up Bident of Thassa for more draw engines.

Your commander is critical for your deck, in these colors I would advice running some mix of Lazav, the Multifarious, Spark Double, Sakashima the Impostor, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and/or Helm of the Host. One having more then one of your commander on the field at the time is never a bad thing. Two, your opponents will know to keep your commander down so make as many of it as you can 8p.

wheres the Flickering Ward or Shimmering Wings for the repeatable triggers? Sigarda's Aid for the insta speed Indestructibility.

Watch the nonbos like Hanna, Ship's Navigator or Auramancer with Rest in Peace in play makes for sad days. You have Tragic Slip but, only 2 triggers for morbid (Myriad Landscape and Seal of Cleansing)? I mean I like Tragic Slip and all but, it's better in sacrifice theme decks.Ephara, God of the Polis but, no flash to keep triggers each opponents turn.

More over the game plan is turn dude side ways but, now are looking to run Faerie, Enchantment or Flying mans?

last Omen of the Sea would just be a good card to run.

enpc on I need a token deck...

I run a casual list with Tymna the Weaver and Tana, the Bloodsower which does a pretty good job of pumping out saprolings. It's not a dedicated token list, however it spews them onto the battlefield pretty well (deck is Don't be Blue).

If you want a lot of tokens, Ghave, Guru of Spores is going to be one of your best bets. Saprolings have a lot of support and he enables them well, especially when paired with token doubling effects. You will need a lot of dice though.

As for enabling Alela, Artful Provocateur , Shimmering Wings is an easy way of getting toekns, however is not an infinite combo in itself.

enpc Arcitect/Pala is in there mainly for when I can get Walking Ballista , and I'm also looking for another insta-win or two to go with it. But it's also something I'd be willing to cut, at least Pili-Pala .

Shimmering Wings I like, for the name and infinite token potential. I just wish I had stronger non flyers that I'd want to put wings on. Hmmmm..

I like big fliers, but can see what you mean with Coat of Arms . Good thing I'm the tribal guy in my group.

I'm not a fan of Coat of Arms . It always seems win-more to me, especially if your play group runs a lot of tribal. I also think that here the Grand Architect / Pili-Pala combo isn't very good. You only have 3 infinite mana sinks in the whole deck and one of those is Steel Hellkite .

If you want some pure jank, Shimmering Wings lets you repeatedly make a token for 2 mana.

I love your decklist, I love your playbook, I love this take. It's a hot take. I was about to suggest a bunch of BS about cards that would make it look more every go-infinite Najeela Warrior Ball Deck, but you can just EDHREC that. I will suggest Cryptolith Rite because its budget Druids' Repository and Earthcraft , and dorks is the key to the deck, so why not dork out hard? (Also, I don't know if your win strategy necessarily needs Najeela online, but that is the most obvious).

What I want to do is talk about abusing your untap enchants. I have a lot of experience with Intruder Alarm , but this thing with the Jeskai Ascendancy : magnificent. Didn't this idea get a little play in standard? Anyway.

Intruder Alarm first: Cheap creatures that bounce themselves like Shrieking Drake or Man-o'-War or Dream Stalker . There's Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion in white, too. Green has Temur Sabertooth which is super nasty for saving other creatures as well as completing your loop. Great with ETB Triggers.

Jeskai Ascendancy is what I'm really excited about. I've never brewed with this card, but it's got huge potential. You have enough colors and sources to make this one really sparkle. There's buyback cards: Capsize , Elvish Fury , Fanning the Flames , Haze of Rage , Mind Games maybe, Sprout Swarm Definitely (works with Intruder Alarm, too), and many lesser ones. Another Tempest-theme comes in the form of a cycle of Aura Crown of Flames , Shimmering Wings , Whip Silk , and Flickering Ward . The last two are playable (you can make a lot of green and usually white with creatures?), but a lot of this means you have to be hitting at least one strange mana color. I would consider looking at some of the "any color" dorks or Gemstone Array Effects. (That's the best one because it's a battery, too.) ... Priest of Titania ...

I would get my draw from creatures. Beast Whisperer is my dude right now. There's elves and wizards that etb trigger with draw (which would be good to bounce and storm off with, too) and would synergize with tribal cards you are running if they're just lame ducks after being played.

If you want your jank to really clank, consider some more tutors, too. I'm thinking cheaper Enlightened Tutor , Mystical Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Gamble ... I guess that's not too cheap, but way cheaper Vampiric Tutor or Grim Tutor . The reveal might be too much information in your play group, though, so I could see leaving them out.

Also, While researching for this deck, I came across Sunscape Master and Banishing Knack Who I think have been hoping for this deck forever.

All that, I just love this mashup. do whatever. I can't wait to see how you evolve this.
