Feather, Zada's Best Friend

Commander / EDH* RW (Boros)



Instant (1)

April 8 2019 - today Feather, the Reedemed was spoiled. Now that's a Boros commander! And a reason to switch my Zada deck ([token-storm-zada) from RUG to RW.

What do both those commanders want to do? Cast targetting cantrips to draw cards of course! Every one mana instant or sorcery with "target creature, draw a card" is in this deck, as well as a few that cost 2 mana or are otherwise a bit worse. In fact, one of the nice things about white is getting to play an additional 2 one-mana "target creature, draw card" cantrips! That brings the total to 8, which is a pretty good number.

Once Zada, Hedron Grinder or Mirrorwing Dragon & some creatures are down, the deck can start comboing off. Each cantrip suddenly becomes a one mana draw 3 or draw 10+! Then a few mana sources help to combo off - Battle Hymn which scales the same as cantrips, Runaway Steam-Kin which makes red cantrips free, Sword of Feast and Famine to double mana. No cards with storm in the deck currently, but we're definitely storming off at this point. ( Grapeshot can target Feather, which is nifty). With Monastery Mentor or Young Pyromancer tokens are plentiful enough that a copied Titan's Strength will deal 30 or so. Likewise Phalanx Leader can grow the team, even if it does not work with Zada.

Some nice synergies: Runaway Steam-Kin + Phalanx Leader or Twinflame can give 2 mana for 1 red spell. Seize the Day + Zada can be a lot of combat steps. Unfortunately most of your creatures don't untap. However Loyal Apprentice can give a bunch of thopters & Sword of Feast and Famine can give a bunch of mana. Also just great with Feather for the same reasons, over multiple turns. Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame for actual infinite damage. Radiate + the cantrips for big end step card draw before untapping.
