Tiana, Ship's Caretaker Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks, EPICSpider23, for all the comments, help, and the links. I do look forward to comparing brews in the future!
Rona, Disciple of Gix is intriguing. I may have to look over EDHRec for some ideas. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive can just be a pain in the but, and run with cards like Coastal Piracy can really rack up value.

Hey bushido_man96, so here's the link for my Hallar boy: Hallar the Firekicker and I've also got a Brawl deck with Tiana, Ship's Caretaker which has the amazing combos of Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Kwende, Pride of Femeref . I might upload that at some point because at the moment it's just on paper.
I almost made a Rona, Disciple of Gix Commander but there wasn't enough content, I was after equipments/enchantment that gave her Ingest or ": Exile card from target player's library/graveyard/hand/whatever" but there was nothing so I was really diappointed, even after all the exile in the recent Zendikar block.
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is also really interesting but at the moment I'm slotting her into a Standard deck (while it's in rotation) combined with Rat Colony , sweet combo. This is in construction here: Tetsuko's Colony.
I don't know whether you've played Oathbreaker or not but I've started using the new uncommon planeswalkers in that format too. Uncommons are just the greatest for budget XD
I'll be keen to hear from you again and hope we can assist each other in our brewing :)

EPICSpider23, thank you for the suggestions, as well. I'll address them bit by bit...
Tideforce Elemental does appear that it would be quite helpful. The more I play, I'll see if I need more of that effect, and it may go in. It's added to the Maybeboard for sure.
Lotus Cobra isn't as expensive as it used to be, so I'll consider it, as well. Its just figuring out what to cut.
The other landfall cards are good cards, but I'm not necessarily looking to gain 300 life, so the lifegainers I'll probably pass on (although they would go very nicely in a more landfall-focused build). Guardian of Tazeem has a solid effect, but not sure if I want to wedge that in there. I've got a decent removal package right now, but I'll keep it in mind. I was aware of Tireless Tracker ; I've got a copy I run in a Titania, Protector of Argoth deck. Also a good consideration. At the time of the initial build, it was more than I wanted to pay for a card I didn't have another copy of. Now that I'm fine-tuning, I'm more likely to spend a bit more on a card here and there. The drawfall cards I'm going to pass on; if I switch out too much stuff, then I lose the original theme of the deck with the Moonfolk and land bouncing effects, which I want to keep.
As for the Planeswalkers; I'm not averse to them, I just don't own many of them, and I try to make my initial builds fairly easy on the budget. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner has a decent static ability and a useful loyalty ability, but I'm not sure she's quite worth a spot in the deck. The others, I just don't have.
Now, on to other matters: I really enjoy the uncommon Commanders, too, and have built around several of them; Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , Slimefoot, the Stowaway , and am currently working on a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker build. I'd love to see your Hallar, the Firefletcher build. I like him, and think he's worth a build, but am just curious as to how consistent he is for you, and how you manage the kickers, etc. Looking forward to your reply!

Firemane Avenger is a good budget card, but doesn't really interact with your auras. Tiana, Ship's Caretaker is good too, but I don't know if you want to be playing four copies of a legendary 5-drop. You might want to sub out some of those for Favored Hoplite , Akroan Skyguard , or Graceblade Artisan .

Murphy77 thanks for the advice! I was running Sure Strike and Run Amok but I continually ran into issues where I just didn't have or want to spend 2 mana on an instant. In the case of Run Amok we also need to have our creature attacking so it's useless when trying to save a creature from shock or something. They also make it harder to get the effect of Dreadhorde Arcanist off. I will definitely consider both for a sideboard position but so far my experience with the deck makes me want to keep all my instants and sorceries at 1 CMC if possible. Feather is a 3 drop so ideally we want to drop her on turn 4 with one white up to protect her if need be. Dropping her on turn 3 leaves her open to removal and any later than turn 4 and you risk falling too far behind to recover.
Moving onto my reasons for 2 Gird for Battle I was torn on the card but it has been surprisingly useful. I hate that it is a sorcery but being able to give 2 creatures +1+1 and possibly prock Tenth District Legionnaire is just amazing. Plus when we attack with Dreadhord he can do it all over again (assuming Feather is not on the field). So for 1 mana I can beef two of my creatures by 2 (4 in the case of legionnaire!). If this card was an instant you better believe I would be running 4 copies. I don't think Tiana, Ship's Caretaker has any synergy with this deck but it is a real cool card.
Another card I have been back and forth on is Spellgorger Weird . I love the card but it dies to Shock and is a 3 drop. I know Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin does as well but the potential for him to swarm the board justifies that in my eyes. Honestly I like both cards very much and I may sideboard one to swap out with the other depending on the match-up.
As for Ajani's Pridemate that is a strong contender for the deck right now. It's a two drop and if I started running 4 Moment of Triumph it could get real spooky real fast! I'll do some play testing to see if that should claim a spot. I see a lot of potential with it. I'm hesitant to run Battlefield Promotion because, again, it costs 2 but if pridemate work's as well as I think it might replace Gird for Battle .
Guttersnipe is a cool card and I can see it working really well in the deck but I'm not sure that is the strategy I want to go. I've been screwed too many times by that card so using it might leave a bad taste in my mouth. I was running Electrostatic Field because it's a good blocker and does some poke damage but I think I want to focus more on getting my creatures beefy and swinging.
Again, thanks for the advice! I'll be sure to update this page once I've tested out some different things.

Having 2 different spells that make your creatures indestructible has worked for me. I tend to go with Sheltering Light and Adamant Will . Sure Strike and Run Amok in place of burn spells forces you to go more aggro from the start.
Gird for Battle just seems to have a very narrow window when it adds any value to the deck. While Dreadhorde Arcanist is great for when you don't get Feather, the Redeemed out, it exiles the instants that you want to recycle with Feather. I had a look at Tiana, Ship's Caretaker but that also limits your pump spells.
The best version of this deck may well be one where each time that you cast an instant spell, you are placing a +1/+1 counter on at least one creature. Spellgorger Weird just slots right into any Feather deck. Guttersnipe could fill a gap and belongs in the side-board. At the moment, I am leaning heavily toward Ajani's Pridemate as my final creature to collect counters (with Moment of Triumph and Battlefield Promotion in the main-board).

I would think Tiana, Ship's Caretaker would be a pretty good card with this kind of deck because if your opponent is getting rid of the curses, Tiana is there to help get those curses right back into your hand!

If Feather, the Redeemed is really working, you tend to accumulate cheap pump spells in your hand that you can re-play each turn. I would really like to see a few more cards like Thought Vessel or Reliquary Tower that allow you to keep a bigger hand, but can't think of any or spells that fit the bill.
I really love Zada, Hedron Grinder in this deck.
