Aven Wind Guide Discussion

BiggieCheese on A Vicious Cycle

Both of those are definitely great options to support a token theme. One of the early decisions I made in deck building was to keep token making as something that just happens incidentally as I cycle rather than lean into it hard with support cards like those two and Aven Wind Guide for example. I think that's a solid direction you can take with Gavi but I'm looking at other plans for now.

You asked me for suggested cuts, here are some that you probably don't need-

Artifacts- Bident of Thassa

Enchantments- Breath of Fury Song of Freyalise - Seems too slow/predictable

Sorcery/Instant- Camaraderie Untamed Wilds Thrilling Encore

Creatures- Mardu Woe-Reaper Aven Wind Guide Blood-Chin Fanatic Mardu Strike Leader

Recommended Cuts

Creatures

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons

Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough

Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons

Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost

Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better

Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior

Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive

Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.

Tenacious Dead - Just bad

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive

Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.

Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts

Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.

Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost

Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan

Sorceries

Maybe Cut

Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.

Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?

Enchantment

Fires of Yavimaya - Replace with Rhythm of the Wild

Instant

Artifact Mutation && Aura Mutation - Change with generic artifact or enchantment removal

Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough

Artifact

Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough

Recommendations

Attacking / Combat Matter Cards

Blood-Chin Rager - Warriors have Menace

Herald of Dromoka - Warriors have Vigilance

Chief of the Edge - Warriors get +1/+0

Raiders' Spoils - Very good card draw

Ogre Battledriver - Your warriors that enter will be 3/1s when attacking

Jazal Goldmane - Massive Buffs

Mardu Woe-Reaper - Graveyard Interaction

Thrasher Brute - Drains an opponent with warrior etb triggers

Edric, Spymaster of Trest - MOAR CARD DRAW

Combo Pieces

Other

Purphoros, God of the Forge - This guy doesn't need explanation

Cyclonic Rift - ....yeh

Heroic Intervention - Anti-Wrath. Rootborn Defenses Dauntless Escort Join Shields

Divine Visitation - BECAUSE ANGELS

Harvest Season - we make a lot of tapped and attacking creatures. We want mana

Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Alternate win cons

Shared Animosity - Massive Buffs

Anointed Procession Parallel Lives - More tokens

Aggravated Assault - Easier Najeela trigger without keywords

Maybe

Aven Wind Guide - Gives our tokens flying and vigilance

skeletonbarrel on Value Mummies

First round of changes: - -3 Anointer Priest - -2 Aven Wind Guide - -2 Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun - -3 Trueheart Duelist - +1 Fumigate - +1 Champion of Wits - +4 Chart a Course - +3 Glyph Keeper

Goal is to remove some of the more low impact creatures and add more draw/removal and some bigger threats.

Apollo_Paladin on Oops, All Dragons (Budget casual)

Neat deck. - Have you thought about using token lord (and lord-like) options such as Intangible Virtue, Aven Wind Guide, Phantom General, or even Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer?

  • I definitely think Intangible Virtue would be a good fit at least, possibly even over Leyline of the Meek since you've only got one copy in there anyway.
  • The other suggestions may or may not work for you on mana costs for their yield depending on how the deck plays, but I think beefing up the tokens even before they all become dragons (at which point they're still tokens too obviously) is a solid move.
