Crow Storm Discussion

Raging_Squiggle on Chulane, Somewhat Competitive

I would add in some redundancies to the bouncing creatures. Man-o'-War, Dream Stalker, Kor Skyfisher, and Stonecloaker (especially good cause flash and also grave hate). Cloud of Faeries also does good work when comboing with Aluren and a bounce source.

Speaking of bounce sources, more redundancies! Words of Wind and Overburden (This card is important as it combos out with Shrieking Drake and is generally a strong card. You won't care about bouncing lands cause chulane will put it right back into play).

Now what to do with all the mana in the world you could want and all the casting you could want? Well, Aetherflux Reservoir and Brain Freeze come to mind. Also, Words of Wind doubles as a win con by bouncing everyone out of the game entirely. Similarly, Words of Wilding can give you as many bears as you want to swing with. These Word cards will help save that mandatory draw from Chulane as your deck empties out. (And on the chance your playgroup allows some UnCards, Crow Storm is quite the funny win con)

How are you gonna get these cards quickly and consistently though? A couple more draw engines wouldn't hurt. Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project are both strong when playing a "I must cast all the creatures" deck. Abundance and Rhystic Study aren't too bad either.

But, how to protect your stuff when you cast it? Prowling Serpopard should be in here to protect your creatures. He's a cat, he protec. Also, Gaddock Teeg strongly hates on any spell slinger deck.

Depending on your budget, Earthcraft should be in here. Otherwise, its budget, (but not nearly as good cousin) Cryptolith Rite could work too.

Since, you didn't make the basic land, you made a legendary land, I will make the basic land.

Pumpkin Patch

Basic Land--Field

(: Add {o}

And now another card to go in the orange scarecrow deck:

Straw Birdscarer

Creature--Scarecrow Horror


Whenever a creature with flying becomes blocked by Straw Birdscarer, destroy that creature.

Your opponents can't cast spells named Storm Crow or Crow Storm


Make more Orange-colored cards to go in this deck.

I'm not sure if "Storm Crow" is lingo that y'all kids use, but I'm going to assume that you're referencing Crow Storm, but not an un-card. And I feel like doing it in the likeness of The Wanderer...

Wandering Hermit

Legendary Planeswalker

Non-human creature spells with flying you cast cost less to cast, and can't be countered

-2 Create a 1/2 blue Bird creature token with flying named "Storm Crow" for each spell cast this turn


Probably broken, I don't know, but at least there's a decently strict condition to the static ability. Maybe the one loyalty ability should only count flying, nonhuman creature spells? Does that make it too weak?

Make a card with a storm-like effect that is really good but not broken.

Would Crow Storm be too heretical here? If not, it would be awesome flavourwise while propably not too powerful.

Okay, so I finally had some time to come by and take a closer look! First, I suspect you know this, but Crow Storm, Five-Finger Discount, and are silver-bordered and thus not legal in commander. Many playgroups will allow them, though, which is fine if yours lets you. With that being said, Bronze Tablet is beyond banned: it permanently exchanges ownership of a card, an effect that is never ever allowed under any circumstances in modern Magic. I know it's in the sideboard, but it's not even worth having there.

Second, this deck looks a lot better than the first time I stopped by here! It has a tighter focus and more focus on a specific goal: steal if you can, mill if you can't. You're still on a budget, so I'll do my best to keep that in mind. I don't know if you're opposed to infinite combos, but Bloodchief Ascension is great here: just a great card anyway with mill, but doubly awesome when it goes infinite to kill opponents with Mindcrank. Mnemonic Betrayal might be exactly up your alley, as might Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and/or Lazav, the Multifarious. You also could use some more decent draw effects, like Rain of Notions, Read the Bones, etc.

Beyond that, Mastermind's Acquisition doesn't function in EDH unless your playgroup is playing with unusual rules (the second mode just doesn't do anything). My first cuts would be Energy Chamber, Feroz's Ban, Glasses of Urza, Magistrate's Scepter, Spellbook, Mastermind's Acquisition, and Peek. I hope that helps!
