Call to the Kindred

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may look at the top five cards of your library. If you do, you may put a creature card that shares a creature type with enchanted creature from among them onto the battlefield, then you put the rest of those cards on the bottom of your library in any order.

Call to the Kindred Discussion

Shnuff on Myojin deck

1 month ago

I just had a similar idea for a deck when I saw Call to the Kindred ('Kindred Spirit' pun alone made it worth brewing) and Lifespinner ! Then I thought how the Myojin are cool (also highest when searching Gatherer by CMC) but lack of Divinity Counters was sad... then I too found That Which Was Taken ! Play a little spirit- get a big spirit! Of course, this idea is by no means 'standard' anymore but funny that someone 5 years ago came to the same conclusion as me. Oh, to be a Magic player when Kamigawa was standard legal. sigh

Unless you're playing with some funky homebrew rules, your commander does have to be a legendary creature. For bird tribal, Kangee, Aerie Keeper or Kangee, Sky Warden would be the most obvious choices. Also, Screaming Seahawk does not get around the singleton restriction in the same way something like Relentless Rats does. Even if it did, I still don't think it would be worth running over the much faster Squadron Hawk . More relevant inclusions might be Watcher of the Spheres , Warden of Evos Isle , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Migratory Route , Wingmate Roc , Aven Mimeomancer , Emeria Angel , Favorable Winds , Kangee's Lieutenant , Judge's Familiar , Steel-Plume Marshal , Battle Screech , Skycat Sovereign , Pride of the Clouds , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Jotun Owl Keeper , Windreader Sphinx , Aven Gagglemaster , Thunderclap Wyvern , Jubilant Skybonder , Rally of Wings , Eyes in the Skies , Alrund's Epiphany , Aerial Assault , Rise of Eagles , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Dovescape , Gravitational Shift , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Serra the Benevolent , or Seaside Haven .

Looks like my comment is now a little redundant here, but hope the seconded advice still helps. Good luck!

I have Call to the Kindred on the battlefield attached to a wizard creature.

During my upkeep, Call to the Kindred triggers and I find a Damia, Sage of Stone and put it into play.

Does Damia, Sage of Stone 's ability triggers, since I'm still during my upkeep ?

Doombeard1984 There is absolutely a lot of randomness that goes with it, I admit. I've sent away a fair share of useful lands and enchantments using Call to the Kindred , for example, but I see it as an acceptable trade-off for the ability to put some extra Slivers on the field, especially for free. To be fair, my deck is also more heavily centered around the Sliver Queen combo than yours, so my strategy isn't much affected if I shuffle away something that's not part of the combo.

With that being said, I still see it as an acceptable risk for your deck, since you're shuffling away anything you would have drawn every time you tutor anyways, and there's very little difference to me between shuffling away a good pull because of Sliver Overlord and putting a card on the bottom of the library. It's also worth mentioning that you have half again as many creatures in your deck as mine, so Call to the Kindred would probably work better for you than for me :)

Thank you lucariolover1023, and always appreciate some ideas. Whilst those cards look fun (especially Call to the Kindred, not seen that before), my only concern would be ripping a killer spell from the top that isn't a creature, and then having to place it on the bottom. To an extent I could always then use Sliver Overlord to search and shuffle them up again, but there is a degree of randomness there that I am just not sure about. Have you experienced using these cards and any kind of outcomes like that?

Always good to see another Sliver deck lol

As for suggestions, Call to the Kindred and Descendants' Path work well in Sliver decks imo. Best of luck with the deck!

+1 from me from the concept alone. I like the theme/gimmick of legendary wizard tribal in all these colors. Snuck in charm tribal too. Maybe complete the Confluence and Command cycle?

0 artifacts or enchantments? Capitalize on their absence with a play set of stax hate.

Reki, the History of Kamigawa while not a wizard would still create real value in this list.

Tribal cards like Arcane Adaptation, Call to the Kindred, Cavern of Souls, Cover of Darkness, Descendants' Path, Kindred Discovery, Kindred Dominance, Kindred Summons, Patriarch's Bidding, Species Specialist
