Ahaha, you're absolutely right. Fixed, thanks!

Oh, definitely! I'd for sure love to run one of Favorable Winds as well, and I'm pretty sure I even have one laying around somewhere so even better!

I'd been thinking the same thing about Dream Chisel, and Shamanic Revelation looks great. I'll do exactly that, thanks!

This looks to be a really fun deck, and at a great price point too! I might recommend sticking in a Windbrisk Heights too, as it would be super easy to cast its Hideaway card with all the creatures you're pumping out. Also may want to think about Oblivion Ring or Banishing Light just because while you have plenty of removal, most of it is destroy effects that won't be able to shut down anything with Indestructible.

This looks like such a fun deck to play! I definitely recommend running that Unbender Tine in your Maybeboard. One of my absolute favorite cards. And not only is it perfectly on-theme here, it ends up super useful every game I draw it in. And absolute worst-case scenario, it's another mana rock. But it can untap Ancient Tomb for 4 colorless mana per turn, Rogue's Passage for two unblockable creatures each turn, or a whole host of other fun little uses that I discover every time I play it.

Just wanted to comment that I absolutely adore this idea. Sphinxes are my favorite mythical creature and I've always toyed with the idea of making a tribal deck for them.
My main thought is that the average mana cost is sort of high and you're running relatively few lands, and without much mana fixing elsewhere. Belltower Sphinx also seems iffy here, as mill tends to be pretty unreliable in EDH without serious commitment to it. Maybe add a Magister Sphinx in its place? Although that would also increase your average mana cost, Yennett could play him for free.

Love Emeria Angel, I'm just always worried about having her late game and getting no birds off her ability. That said, I haven't actually tested her out to see if that would be the case so I really should.
And I'd definitely love to run Propaganda as well, I'm just already super stuck on what to remove as is haha.

Sorry for the bother, was just hoping I could get CSS enabled for my deck posting as well. Trying to add card images to a description and was pulling my hair out trying to investigate what part of my syntax was wrong haha.

I really like Paradise Mantle , I'll definitely add that. Cloudchaser Eagle actually used to be in the deck, as did Augury Owl ! I'll definitely have to revisit them for some more utility in here. I did consider Aven Fateshaper too, but he's just too expensive to be reliable - his activated ability cost is actually 4U not 1U.
The big thing I'm noticing in playtesting is that Kangee works really well with all this proliferate. Even getting him out with only one feather counter has been perfectly viable, as it never stays just one. But with him as the sole linchpin, it's not hard for an opponent to just kill him off and leave me entirely open. Even upon his second cast he costs 9 mana to get out with a single feather counter. I need to maybe go a little overboard with my mana solutions here, and almost definitely add at least Whispersilk Cloak and Swiftfoot Boots to offer him some protection.

Absolutely adore this idea. I have no specific card suggestion, except that for the basic lands you should really consider the Ixalan art with Jace wandering through, as he's at least half-shirted in all of them. Then it would just be all nonbasic lands lacking a nice chesty man.

Oh, Smothering Tithe I really like. I'll definitely find a place to fit that in here.

And yeah, an infinite mana combo could absolutely be awesome with his kicker! Our little playgroup just generally tries to avoid infinite combos.
February 5, 2019 11:04 p.m.
That's true- I hadn't given much thought into how expensive the ability on Glarecaster is, just his personal casting cost. I think I'll drop him for the Vanquisher's Banner to offer me some more card draw, as well.

With most EDH decks I tend to use the old tried-and-true rule of 40 lands, then take 1 out for every three manarocks/landfetchs/etc. But by that I'm actually one land short, you're absolutely right. Much as I love the card, I think I'll pull Kindred Boon as it's only there for Kangee himself and doesn't directly push my win-con, just gives it a little more oomph. Thanks for the feedback!

Have you considered running a Tasigur, the Golden Fang in here? I actually switched to running him as my commander in a similar deck, because with a couple other players he gets to play some great politics ("we both want this thing gone, give me that card and I'll take care of it") if you do. With your lack of instants/sorceries it might not matter much in the end, but it could open up the ability to try some out if you did go that route.

Been working a lot on a bird tribal for the past week or so, just always doing some further refining lately.

Love the synergy between Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Phyrexian Hydra there. You seem pretty low on land though, especially with not having many manarocks or instants/sorceries with library searching like Cultivate . Your curve is pretty low, but even considering that I might recommend at least Evolution Charm for the versatility, but probably even others like Kodama's Reach or Lay of the Land . I do love all the proliferation, too. Even just a couple counters can add up to deadly with repeating effects like your contagion clasp/engine!

Oof, you're right- that was supposed to say Seaside Haven . Fixed now, thanks for letting me know!
And I definitely had thought about Dovescape, but the potential of an opponent outpacing my birds and using Kangee against me was just too scary. But Guile alongside it is sure tempting, I'd never thought of that! I'll have to give that some thought, thank you!
