Further more Neheb, the Eternal can give somewhat of a second main phase sorda like what Sword of Feast and Famine would do. For this deck it is more important since most of the time you cast out before attacking to either create devotion or make a buff to your army with something like Balefire Liege.

Interesting ideas! I've had Herald of Leshrac in here before, but I've noticed that it takes a lot of turns before the effect really impacts the game - especially if it doesn't come out early. I like the Custodi Soulcaller and Balefire Liege especially. Thanks for the input, I'll look at swapping some cards in and out to make room for these!

PHATJER I did consider it however I prefer the faster nature of this deck that comes when having a low CMC. Balefire Liege might eat a whole turn to cast before it gets to do anything and that might put my commander to risk.

Nice deck list. Have you thought about adding Balefire Liege ? I find it to be a very nice addition to any Feather deck.

Masyeldarb, Balefire Liege is totally rockin, great anthem, some free lightning bolts etc. But it's pretty off-theme for an $11 investment. I think any additions of that price would be mire killer angels, like Archangel of Thune etc. I appreciate the suggestion, though. All of the Lieges are so cool.

DemonDragonJ on Orim's Thunder or Duergar Hedge-Mage?

PhyrexianWombat, Hjaltrohir, I like those suggestions, because Wear / Tear can destroy two permanents for either the same or a lower mana cost than can Orim's Thunder , the damage is rarely relevant, and that card shall trigger both abilities of Balefire Liege , whereas the thunder shall trigger only one.

DemonDragonJ on Skyknight Legionnaire or Skyknight Vanguard?

I have a red/white deck with four copies of Skyknight Legionnaire , which I think is a great card, but, now that Skyknight Vanguard has been printed in Core Set 2020, I am contemplating replacing the previous card with it.

The vanguard has lower power and does not have haste, but it also has a lower mana cost and generates a token every time that it attacks (and, importantly, the tokens do not cease to exist after combat is over), and, since the deck also contains four copies of Balefire Liege , those tokens could become quite powerful.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Skyknight Legionnaire with Skyknight Vanguard ?
