Description

This is a trial run to see if this idea works (proliferate lots of counters) in EDH. Feedback needed and welcome.

The deck is based primarily around fliers - the enemies deck will have trouble keeping up with them all, especially after Magus of the Moat and Kangee hit the board.

The second idea is proliferation. The deck may be slow off the mark to begin with - but once Kangee hits the field with a feather counter - all the birds get +1/+1. Proliferate this up, along with the +1/+1 counters generated from Cathars' Crusade, Brace for Impact and Ajani Goldmane AND the feather counters on cards such as Soulcatchers' Aerie, and your birds with be growing in power quicker than your opponent can keep up. This isn't even to mention Aven Mimeomancer - who can put even more feather counters on Kangee!

The final "theme" in the deck are the control spells - these are to help your deck get off the ground (pun intended). The deck is slow at the start - but cards such as Dissipation Field and Volition Reins help you set the record straight. This stalling will help you get your counters on your creatures and prepare Calciform Pools in order to cast Kangee or Mikaeus, the Lunarch with the maximum possible counters!

Suggestions

Updates

A few more updates on this ever-changing deck. The decklist that has been up for a while is currently wrong, and I am updating it in a few minutes to reflect actual play.

Windreader Sphinx is in, and Warden of Evos Isle is in.

In other news, a new version of this deck is in construction called "Mockingbird" using the new Bird Legend. It's going to be this, but filling a different role. The bird I am desperate to use? Whippoorwill.

Surfin' Bird will still live on as a deck, and hopefully my two Bird Tribals will help reforge the EDH world. Maybe.

Thank you all for the input to this deck - I am glad everyone has enjoyed the concept as much as I have enjoyed playing it! More suggestions are always welcome!

I would suggest Storm Crow for a win con, I hear he is pretty good.

I reaaaaallly like this deck idea so +1.

Something you may consider though is the addition of Adaptive Automaton He helps buff your birdie buddies and changes into a bird himself, pretty important for tribal EDHs.

I want to alert you to the dangers of Dissipation Field however, If you consider all of the really amazing entering the battlefield abilities we have access to in EDH, having Dissipation Field on the battlefield might just give your opponent the incentive to attack you so they can get off their Massacre Wurm again.

It can get annoying with the lack of chump blockers in the deck - I am considering swapping it for Swan Song to fit with the flavour.
