I am a white mage, a Vorthos, a Johnny, a lover of the color pie. My patron planeswalker is Gideon. My favorite things in magic are story, and flavor, and times when gameplay reflects these two.

I would define myself as mono white - centered against black. I did briefly play abzan when it was in standard (before ending up in Temur oddly enough.) but I generally refuse to play black. Power is never worth the price.

And if only everyone could put aside their selfish tendencies, act in the greater interest and follow the rules put there for the benefit of all . . . then we would all prosper.

Red is less problematic. It's chaotic, destructive, and uncontrolled, but also creative, constructive and if it has friends it can be channeled to act to the benefit of all.

enter image description here

You would think that would make me Selesnya but it doesn't. I stand pretty well balanced between blue and green. I'm a physics major and a botanist - but above all my passion will always be story.

The way a story binds a community, shapes them towards a greater good. It's a form of real life magic.

I run my local magic club, and am pretty deep into the online magic community. If you look at my decks, I'll probably take a look at yours too.

Awesome deck!

Are you aware of the "Vorthos" tag? - because this deck deserves the Vorthos tag.

Awesome primer! As I've been going through Feather decks for ideas I've been noticing a lot of interesting repeats (they all have Teferi's Protection despite it only working once? How odd) now I understand why.

Just want to add my two cents here on a different direction you can go. Arcane spells - feather sees spliced spells as targeting even if the original spell does not, and it's a great way to get extra effects in there.

For instance Zada, Hedron Grinder + Desperate Ritual spliced onto something that targets. Makes insane amounts of mana.

Crack the Earth + Spiritual Visit + a targeting arcane spell, say Blessed Breath + Zada or Mirrorwing Dragon = annihilator x where x is the number of creatures you control, for 3 mana.

I haven't completely tuned it yet, but just want to throw out some alternative ideas if people want to take a look.

Okay, so I have this Feather deck built around arcane spells and I've been trying to come up with a punny name with arcane in it and totally failing to get anything.

Any ideas?

Heh, that's some solid lack of imagination!

Just cut Evolution Sage after some playtesting because it doesn't do enough for the combo. I think I'm down to everything either comboing off for infinite mana, digging for the combo, or having trample for when the combo goes off. (because it turns out infinite power and toughness mean nothing when you have two creatures and they can be chump blocked.)

I would cut:

Insufficiently on theme - these are good cards but don´t take advantage of your commander or what you´re trying to do. Magnetic Theft , Comeuppance , Electrodominance , Lapse of Certainty , Panic , Return to Dust , Teferi's Protection , Temur Battle Rage , Titan's Strength , Wear , Acrobatic Maneuver , Wheel of Fortune , Blasphemous Act , Day of Judgment , Empty the Warrens , Faithless Looting , Gamble , Kari Zev's Expertise , Wrath of God ,

Removal targets: Smothering Tithe , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

good cards you don´t really have the support for. Aurelia, the Warleader , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Cloudshift - the only solid target I see is Sun Titan ? same with Eerie Interlude

Paradox Engine was recently banned in commander.

Given that I cut more than the needed 16 I´ll point out a couple feather allstars you´re missing.

Aurelia's Fury - does so much. One damage to one of your creatures and you have repeatable tapping, removal, and combo protection. Intimidation Bolt - repeatable fog when targeting your own creature. Spawning Breath - this is your smothering tithe replacement, mana, creatures for Zada to target, and removal in a pinch all on an instant. Orim's Thunder - kicked is the best repeatable enchantment and artifact removal I´ve found.

Conceding.

The only win con is my commander swinging in on an eleven turn clock, and I only start attacking once I'm established and my opponents have largely killed one another off.
