Sky Tether Discussion

How about Sky Tether as another removal option and Brave the Elements for protection?

Nice! There are three other cards to consider for budget UW flyers: Sky Tether, Winged Words, and Rally of Wings. Rally is seriously one of the best combat tricks out there.

I think it's a solid non-legendary rare, in any case, as it has aggressive stats, and seems like a Johnny card/Spike maybe given the cards I'll put below (Only competitive with a standard reprint of the concept of the cards, obviously). It has a solid hate effect, and while Flying & Reach is silly, it does have marginal usefulness, in the face of Archetype of Imagination and Sky Tether.

I run Eon Hub in my Lavinia, Azorius Renegate, to work around Stasis and other similar effects, as it doesn't run smokestacks, and will have Paradox Haze in the Jhoira of the Ghitu deckI'm in the concept stages of

Newer cards: Winged Words, Sky Tether, and Rally of Wings are all great budget options.

These are typically the "core" Modern spirits creatures:

Now you're on a budget so I think Queller and Selfless are out. But if you can squeeze Wanderer and Phantom into your budget (I'd replace Tallowisp and your two 2x spirits), I highly highly recommend. A scalable utility 1 drop and a 2 drop lord make a huge difference. Then you can probably cut to 22x lands.

You usually want slightly more blue than white mana sources, since more of your color pips are blue in most spirits decks. Try 1-2 extra Island, swapping out Plains.

I don't like Temple of Enlightenment, a tapped land is such a tempo killer for this deck. Any chance you can acquire Port Town in its place?

For creature removal, since Path to Exile is presumably not an option, try Sky Tether. Your creatures almost always fly so in a lot of cases this is as good as actual removal, and for 1 mana too.

I've tried Staggering Insight and I honestly don't think it's worth it at 2 mana. Curious Obsession imo is better if you want this sort of effect. If instead you decide you don't want any of this, I suggest something cheap like Spell Pierce, just as a nice easy out to planeswalkers and other noncreature stuff people might drop on you.

Hope some of this helps you out. Good luck! Spirits is insanely fun.

There are several newish cards that are great for budget fliers - see, especially, Sky Tether , Winged Words , and Rally of Wings .

Love this deck, I made a version of it based on the list.

I have found Gleam of Authority underwhelming unless you have managed to get your Cloudfin Raptor up using Thrummingbird . Because most of the enchantments are cheap, if you don't know you have Celestial Ancient coming up it's hard to justify keeping stuff like Ordeal of Thassa and Favorable Winds in the hand to activate the triggered effect of Ancient later on. However usually if you get get some proliferation from Thrummingbird + Collective Effort , you have a viable bird army by T3 or T4.

In the 1-drop slot I swapped Faerie Seer for Healer's Hawk . I have been thinking of adding Sky Tether as basically a 1 mana Pacifism for removal. Blessed Spirits also rounds out the curve nicely and fits right in with the theme. I happened to have a Starfield Mystic which also dovetails nicely. I found Gird for Battle as a nice mana sink on T3 or T4 to get the proliferation / boosts for High Sentinels of Arashin if you have any "naked" creatures. To boost card draw, one could also add Winged Words and/or Curiosity / Curious Obsession which would get more enchantments in the hand. Invocation of Saint Traft is also a great combo with Cloudfin Raptor . Finally, Eidolon of Countless Battles can be a nice T4 bomb, boosting up one of your smaller flyers.

I know a lot of those changes make it a little less budget, but we're still talking like <$15 here.
