DadHumanPraetor on Feather Redeems Boros in EDH [Primer]

10 months ago

I am in the process of building Feather and I am considering Silent Arbiter Magus of the Moat Aurification Mangara, the Diplomat and some other tech to discourage ops from swinging wide. Have you run any smiliar cards, and if so what was your experience with them? I was also plan on running Backdraft Hellkite. The mirrorwing looks a lot stronger since it can do something the turn it comes into play, but I wonder how many creatures I will actually have on the battefield and whether it will be as effective as it looks at first glance. Any thoughts?

I would say that Seize the Day I don't seen in every Feather deck. It's won me a few games just because my opponents will gladly take Feather damage at 3 power until they have about 12-14 commander, and then they don't see StD come out of nowhere (and on top of it's clutch flashback it would just go back to my hand since it would target Feather).

Other cards I don't see in every deck or hear people talk about negatively are Assemble the Legion, Backdraft Hellkite and Spawning Breath. AtL is really the only one that I hear get negative feedback a lot but I like it a lot.

I can think of a few good cards but theyre at the top end of the curve- Fiendish Duo Chandra's Ignition Sarkhan's Unsealing Warstorm Surge and the new Terror of the Peaks all seem solid.

How do you plan on avoiding running out of cards? I feel like Light Up the Stage Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Ox of Agonas Mind's Eye Magus of the Wheel Underworld Breach Backdraft Hellkite all add quite a bit of value either by providing you with cards or retracing cards in your bin.

Yo PJ! I've made a good amount of updates to the deck since we last talked about it, what do you think now?

Other cards I want to test out: Cartographer's Hawk, Verge Rangers, Backdraft Hellkite, Fiendish Duo

Yes. ETB triggers will still happen because the creature is entering the battlefield. Important note though, you don't get cast triggers like from Kozilek, the Great Distortion nor will you get attacks triggers like that of Backdraft Hellkite.
