Gadianten on Bird Tribal Attempt with +1/+1 counters

1 month ago

I love tribal decks and I have only seen a couple of bird decks but not any that build around counters and with the built in evasion that seems a pretty viable way to run them; I think a few of the picks are sub optimal so I compiled a some bird choices that might be interesting depending on how your meta is built. I also think you could stand to some more card draw to help fuel the tribal beat down, all in all I think this looks fun and I will enjoy seeing it evolve as you tweak it over time. +1

Cheap useful birds: Baleful Strix , Judge's Familiar , River Hoopoe , Sage Owl , Spire Owl , Stormscape Familiar , Thrummingbird

Interesting and useful birds: Aven Sunstriker , Wingmate Roc , Kathari Remnant , Lieutenant Kirtar , Nimble Obstructionist

Birds matter: Kangee, Aerie Keeper , Keeper of the Nine Gales , Crookclaw Elder

Tribal stuff: Door of Destinies

Non creature draw: Guardian Project , Greater Good

Fun stuff: Battle Screech , Beck / Call

@Control_Train:Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate you sharing your experience with Yuriko; I've only played a few games with her, she can be quite brutal and generates significant hate (and respect).

More cards for your consideration: - Sage Owl or Spire Owl - Diabolic Vision

Vampiric Tutor is the #1 card you could put in to improve the deck. Diabolic Vision is an excellent cantrip. Temporal Trespass is the best extra turn spell you could ask for, since the CMC is an upside. Same goes for Curtains' Call and Avatar of Woe . Insidious Dreams and Ancestral Knowledge are extra Doomsdays. Unnatural Selection is an extra creature-type changer. Emrakul, the Promised End is a good eldrazi of choice, since you'll actually be able to cast it if you tutor it to the top of your library. Trench Gorger is a good late game card, since it does triple duty acting as a huge beater, high-CMC target, and deck-thinner. For little guys, Tormented Soul , Triton Shorestalker , Faerie Impostor , Prickly Boggart , Vampire Cutthroat , Looter il-Kor , Nether Traitor , Flitterstep Eidolon , Thalakos Seer , Baleful Strix , Augury Owl , Spire Owl , and Sage Owl are better than some of your choices,

consider making this deck modern by cutting Dauthi Slayer and Spire Owl and adding Sage of Epityr

Jonas_Poponas how is Sleep perfoming for you? Agreed on Bident/Piracy matter - mostly, because Vandalblast is a thing.

I think you can improve some of the evasive creatures you use for ninjutsu.

Out:

Looter il-Kor - you don't rely on him dealing combat damage anyway

Inkfathom Witch - I was playing it, but i have dimir zombies in my playgroup and it just does nothing against them

Prickly Boggart - same problem as witch

Cavern Harpy - how is it working for you? i feel the fact you can't sometimes drop it turn 2 sucks

In:

Sage Owl

Spire Owl

Thalakos Seer

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive

All of them are evasive, but do smthing when you use them as ninjutsu fodder, except Tetsuko, which gives Yuriko and couple of ninjas unblockable.

PS Ninjas and Owls - my Yuriko version, similar idea, less budget:)

Thanks for showing me Wu Scout. That will be nice in a few decks.

Spire Owl and Owl Familiar for a "playset" of owls.

Have you thought about Thalakos Seer and Insidious Dreams?

Insidious Dreams is arguable better finisher than Doomsday. Thalakos Seer has shadow and payoff when ninjutsu is used on it.

There are some useful changelings (they are ninjas), like: Amoeboid Changeling, Shapesharer, Cairn Wanderer and maybe even Skeletal Changeling

Notable mentions Spire Owl, Sage Owl and Augury Owl
