RNR_Gaming on Directionless Feather Deck

2 weeks ago

Though I don't personally enjoy this commander...yes Psychotic Fury and Crimson Wisps are a must in this deck. Literally, every feather player has those 2 cards in their deck. Also, Zada and mirror wing aren't needed unless you're doing a token focus; they're great in that archetype but in a weird beats/draw deck its suboptimal. Without fetches/shocks and duals the only things you can really add are some of the rainbow lands City of Brass and Mana Confluence are still a tad pricey though. As for removal for boros the go to cards are always Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Lightning Bolt . Everything comes down to the play testing you do and your meta. Its definitely a good start for a feather deck but will only get better if you test all your options until you find the right fit.

First off, you should put your list into a deck - it makes giving advice much easier as people can see the deck stats.

As for recommendations, maybe Crimson Wisps / Expedite ? it's a cantrip at worst, and gives your Pili-Pala haste to combo off. You would however need to splash red.

Your other option is to use something like Blue Sun's Zenith to deck your opponent.

I propose to take out Aria of Flame for Goblin Engineer .

  1. We don't need another win condition and Aria of Flame is kind of a drag with its 'Instant and Sorcery' only while giving our opponents 10 lives each.

  2. We need to have our pieces connect and leave less to the luck of the draw.

Right now we have disconnects in our sequence to winning... Feather, the Redeemed has a disconnect with Sunforger which tutors for Enlightened Tutor to grab us Paradox Engine but only if we get to draw using a draw spell. But where is Aetherflux Reservoir ?

I have Thalia's Lancers to tutor for Paradox Engine , even though it is up to luck if I draw Thalia's Lancers , which leaves Enlightened Tutor to grab Aetherflux Reservoir .

But by having Goblin Engineer I can grab any one of the missing artifacts that is required for our win condition. With a casting cost of 1R and activation cost R, we just need Crimson Wisps or Expedite to pull our artifact into the battlefield for a total CMC of 4, which is the same as Aetherflux Reservoir and less than Paradox Engine .

And, if need be, we can also pull Sunforger , straight into the battlefield. Which is cheaper CMC than using Stoneforge Mystic and Open the Armory (When combined with the casting cost of Sunforger ).

Yes, we need to sacrifice an artifact for the activation but that's why we have Ancient Den and Great Furnace , and that Mind Stone doesn't seem so useless in the late game anymore.

By the way: Goblin Engineer can be tutored by Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard . I might even take out Thalia's Lancers and replace it with Goblin Matron / Goblin Recruiter .

Hey, looks good for a first version.

Some card draw options to consider adding:

I consider all these low mana cost instants staples for Feather.

Other cards to consider adding within this deck's budget:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Boros Guildgate
  • 5x Mountains
  • Spellbook
  • Lightning Greaves
  • Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran
  • Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
  • Odric, Master Tactician
  • Squee, the Immortal
  • Truefire Captain
  • Astral Steel
  • Star of Extinction
  • Razia's Purification

Greaves is a good card, but not with Feather because can't equip Feather with it since shroud doesn't allow you to target a creature meaning can't trigger Feather. You have Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower , both excellent cards for no max hand size, don't also need Spellbook. Good luck with your deck.

legendofa on Crimson Wisps vs. Expedite price ...

So I was checking over my $10 decklists, and $10 Boros Weenie had shot up way over budget. 3x Crimson Wisps was more than the rest of the deck combined... I did a bit of price history checking, and it looks like it spiked during WAR spoilers. Expedite had a small blip, then restabilized. What's going on here? Is there some new deck I haven't seen that likes its creature base to be red?

What happened to the price of Crimson Wisps compared to Expedite ? Why is turning something 20 times more valuable than giving it haste and drawing a card?

Looks fun! I do have a couple of thoughts. Why Healer's Hawk instead of a different one drop that benefits from all the spells you'll be casting? Like Monastery Swiftspear or Favored Hoplite . You also might want to find room for some of the cantrips- like Expedite or Crimson Wisps . If you target feather with them, you'll get to draw a card and bring it back to hand so you can draw more later!

You also definitely don't want to be running Blood Moon in your sideboard here. If you cast it, you suddenly only have 4 white sources in your whole deck, which is very not good for you.
