PhotogenicParasympathetic,
Mine is Winterflame, for sure.

Though I have a whole "deck" of my favorites:

Deco_y and Gleeock,
I'm with y'all on Gift of Orzhova and Commander's Authority ... they're not my favorites but they're way up there.

Deco_y,
Thalia's in Strength of Arms ... is that maybe what you meant?

I've been trying to break Zada, Hedron Grinder since she was first spoiled. Same with Mirrorwing Dragon. And though I've seen and played a bunch of REALLY fun brews, I've yet to see one that's competitive.

That's where I'm hoping y'all can help: Please share your ideas and brews!

To get us started ...

Here's a list of all the ...


Cards that play nicely with Zada and Mirrorwing

Here are the known playable archetypes:

  • Blink: Abuse Blink effects (Essence Flux, especially) and ETB Creatures
  • Clues/Artifacts: Investigate effects (Confront the Unknown, especially) and Artifacts-matter cards
  • Counters: +1/+1 Counter effects and Counters-matter cards (multiple cards ... IMO this is the strongest archetype so far)
  • Energy: Energy counters and Energy-matters cards
  • Prowess: Prowess made better with Zada/Mirrorwing
  • Tokens: Token-maker effects ( Silverfur Partisan , especially ... though Strength of Arms may actually be better)
  • Something else entirely?

And here are some earlier threads: Solving Mirrorwing and Solving Mirrorwing: The Sequel.

With both Zada and Mirrorwing rotating out of Standard in September, we don't have much time. Thanks in advance for your help!

Strength of Arms is quite good for buffing your creatures.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch also helps.

Mother of Runes provides some good protection.

To make the deck faster, you could add another 2-drop (e.g. Hamlet Captain or if you can afford it Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip ) and some more combat tricks or removal (e.g. Blessed Alliance, Aim High, Repel the Abominable, Strength of Arms, Survive the Night, Prey Upon)

Note that you can cast Survive the Night pre combat to give all your creatures indestructible until end of turn IF Odric, Lunarch Marshal is out.

I suggest to cut Ulvenwald Mysteries, which only hekps in very long, grindy games and Neglected Heirloom  Flip despite its synergy with Avacynian Missionaries  Flip. Save it for the werewolf tribe, they have no trouble flipping it.

clayperce on Solving Mirrorwing: The Sequel

This is a reboot of the original Solving Mirrorwing thread.


Do you have ideas on how to make Zada, Hedron Grinder or Mirrorwing Dragon shine in Standard? If so, you're in the right place, and I'd LOVE to see and talk about your deck!

Archetypes that need optimization ...

  • Artifacts: Abuse Investigate effects and Artifacts-matter cards
  • Blink: Abuse Blink effects and ETB Creatures
  • Counters: Abuse +1/+1 Counter effects and Counters-matter cards
  • Energy: Abuse Energy counters and Energy-matters cards
  • Prowess: Make a good deck even better with Zada/Mirrorwing
  • Tokens: Abuse Token-makers like Silverfur Partisan, Strength of Arms and Make Mischief
  • Something else entirely?

Please don't hesitate to post your deck in large format (it makes it easier to find the decks). Here's the syntax ... just copy-and-paste, replacing the "mirrorwing-energy-kld" part with the "slug name" from your deck's URL:

[[deck-large:mirrorwing-energy-kld]]

Aftertherevolution on What removal can take out ...

1 year ago

lots of nice stuff in that thread, and have been looking at a few of those mentioned. def love silverfur, and do ok with a Hanweir Garrison/Slip Through Space deck. Also was looking at a Otherworldly Outburst, Strength of Arms, Fumigate combo :) ... when I get a chance I'll dig deeper on the thread and post some something if I can add anything new.
