Aven Skirmisher Discussion

legendofa on This Deck's a Mess

Is this an EDH deck? If it is, and you want Oloro as your commander, mark it with (asterisk)CMDR(asterisk) in the deck building list.

Oloro generally wants to go slow and defensive. If that's what you're looking for, then look for stuff that prevents attacks or damage like Ghostly Prison . Felidar Sovereign could act as another win condition, but not everyone likes it.

Cards like Aven Skirmisher and Vengeful Reaper don't really do that much for this deck.

I'm not a great builder for EDH, so I'm sure I'm missing something obvious. These might be some starting points, though.

I would lose the Herald of Dromoka for a cheap ass warrior or another lord. Cheap ones: Aven Skirmisher, Dragon Hunter (it's a 2/1 for one with upside), Goblin Cohort, Grim Initiate, Mardu Shadowspear, Mardu Woe-Reaper (should at least be in the sideboard), Somberwald Vigilante, Vampire Lacerator, and of course, the best one, Zurgo Bellstriker.

Hi Shayda!!!

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!

Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).

I'd also recommend Golgari Charm, Boros Charm, and Heroic Intervention.

Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

You can replace Aven Skirmisher with Healer's Hawk.

Seems like this deck could use a few more one drops to fix the curve, since you only really have 2 turn one plays in your deck and aggro needs a strong curve to be quick enough to overwhelm. Since you're going for a 'Warrior' theme, you can't play really strong cards like Voice of Resurgence or Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. Something you could add that will fit your theme would be Rhys the Redeemed since it's a warrior and a one drop that can create tokens. Looking at cards in gatherer, you could be playing Aven Skirmisher as a one drop but its fairly underwhelming of a card.

So the only card that gives you any sort of real warrior synergy is Rush of Battle, which is a pretty expensive card for such a small effect at sorcery speed. If it was a permanent it might be ok, but it just doesnt seem to do very much. Aggro doesnt need lifelink usually, but trample it can use.

I dont think you have any way of utilizing Bramblewood Paragon as it stands. I'm not seeing any cards that give +1/+1 counters in your deck.

Also consider that your deck runs no removal, and cannot deal with anything your opponent throws at you. So your deck as it stands instantly loses to Ensnaring Bridge, and gets impeded by even stuff like Ghostly Prison. Green has alot of artifact removal, I usually go for Naturalize but there's plenty of other good options.

My honest opinion would be to drop the Warrior theme, and go for a more finely tuned Abzan aggro/mid-range strategy with more solid cards.

what about Uncage the Menagerie? its cheap and can fetch out both of your combo pieces since they both cost 2. I would maybe cut Aven Skirmisher for llanowar elves to help ramp up to your combo sooner. you could also cut Ezuri's Archers for Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip as another way to dig for your combo and once you get infinite mana you could use it to draw all the creatures in your deck.

Olde_English on Reckoning of Zurgo

When it comes to creatures, I see about 22 that you could do without. Here's my list of the creatures you should oust:Accursed Witch  Flip, Aerial Responder, Anax and Cymede, Aven Skirmisher, Boggart Brute, Caravan Escort, Farbog Revenant, Foundry Champion, Hope of Ghirapur, Kitesail Scout, Lightning Runner, Mystic Familiar, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Relic Seeker, Renegade Wheelsmith, Riot Ringleader, Sabertooth Outrider, Sungrace Pegasus, Suntail Hawk, Sweatworks Brawler, Weldfast Engineer.

Many of these cards don't fit your theme or are weak in general. Right now you have a creature heavy strategy, where your creatures support Zurgo and help make him a more effective attacker. I think removing these creatures would benefit your deck a lot.
