Obial on Feather WAR Standard Deck

3 weeks ago

Love this deck +1 from me.

I would run Reckless Rage into the ground until it rotates out: not only does it not kill the Arcanist, but it also works wonders with Tenth District Legionnaire since it adds a counter on her before damage and she stays alive, plus the scry ... then Feather and repeat.

I also run a few Shock to ward off those pesky mono-red decks and the like. Plus in a heavy-hitting green match-up a Shock plus Rage gives you 6 damage for the low price of 2 red mana.

I only run 20 mana total in my deck since your scry and draw ability are insane. I've played single mana hands before and still done fine with how low this deck curves out.

My problem recently has been against other aggro decks that beat me out by just one or two life and it's been frustrating. I really like how you've incorporated Healing Grace and Moment of Triumph into this deck which have been the changes I think I've needed to put this over the top in my store meta. So thanks for the ideas!

Keep it up and I look forward to your updates and progress!

I heard Feather, the Redeemed has a daughter, called Tenth District Legionnaire

Inspired by the great chasm of War of the Spark, while Feather fights in the air in normal EDH, lets take the fight down to the ground with Pauper EDH!

I second Flagellum on Guttersnipe , Tenth District Legionnaire , and Anax and Cymede . All three have proven useful and efficient in my feather deck.

I have also contemplated putting in Purphoros since I also run a minor token generation theme but havent decided on it yet. Same goes for Sun Titan. Im not sure how useful it’ll be in a deck that runs mostly non permanents.

Good luck!

Flagellum on Tokens of a Feather, spellsling together

Guttersnipe , Firebrand Archer , Electrostatic Field : all do passive damage as you play. Creature based isn't always the best but they are all recurable with Sun Titan though.

Purphoros, God of the Forge / Impact Tremors + Anointed Procession : with enough tokens being produced no sense in not running these

Martyr's Cause : is nice to use with a token strategy.

Anax and Cymede : pump your whole team and gives them trample.

Tenth District Legionnaire : scry's

Goblin Bombardment : for grins and giggles

So how has this rendition of Feather worked out? I like the cantrip/flicker with ETB aspect but still hesitant to go voltron as I've melted all my other commanders that were (Karlov/Rafiq maybe another 1 or 2 that I can't recall).

I'm also having a lot of fun with Feather, and Gird for Battle makes for some really explosive plays in my experience. I only run it as a 2of, it's not always good, but t2 Dreadhorde Arcanist into t3 Tenth District Legionnaire lets you hit with a 3/5 and a 6/6 on turn 3, and in the great amount of red decks running around, there's not many of them equipped to deal with threats like that.

I do run some Shock / Lightning Strike main deck though, because Reckless Rage can be a dead card in your hand if your creatures do get removed and you don't draw any new ones. Shocking your Legionnaire with Feather out still will pump it, and you will get the shock back to hand. It's not something you want to do a lot, but it's a niche use for playing very good t1/t2 removal spells (I still run into Wildgrowth Walker from time to time). They also provide reach by going to face, twice even if you have your Dreadhorde Arcanist . Even though they synergize less with Feather, I find myself happy to run them.

My list: WR Feather

Murphy77 thanks for the advice! I was running Sure Strike and Run Amok but I continually ran into issues where I just didn't have or want to spend 2 mana on an instant. In the case of Run Amok we also need to have our creature attacking so it's useless when trying to save a creature from shock or something. They also make it harder to get the effect of Dreadhorde Arcanist off. I will definitely consider both for a sideboard position but so far my experience with the deck makes me want to keep all my instants and sorceries at 1 CMC if possible. Feather is a 3 drop so ideally we want to drop her on turn 4 with one white up to protect her if need be. Dropping her on turn 3 leaves her open to removal and any later than turn 4 and you risk falling too far behind to recover.

Moving onto my reasons for 2 Gird for Battle I was torn on the card but it has been surprisingly useful. I hate that it is a sorcery but being able to give 2 creatures +1+1 and possibly prock Tenth District Legionnaire is just amazing. Plus when we attack with Dreadhord he can do it all over again (assuming Feather is not on the field). So for 1 mana I can beef two of my creatures by 2 (4 in the case of legionnaire!). If this card was an instant you better believe I would be running 4 copies. I don't think Tiana, Ship's Caretaker has any synergy with this deck but it is a real cool card.

Another card I have been back and forth on is Spellgorger Weird . I love the card but it dies to Shock and is a 3 drop. I know Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin does as well but the potential for him to swarm the board justifies that in my eyes. Honestly I like both cards very much and I may sideboard one to swap out with the other depending on the match-up.

As for Ajani's Pridemate that is a strong contender for the deck right now. It's a two drop and if I started running 4 Moment of Triumph it could get real spooky real fast! I'll do some play testing to see if that should claim a spot. I see a lot of potential with it. I'm hesitant to run Battlefield Promotion because, again, it costs 2 but if pridemate work's as well as I think it might replace Gird for Battle .

Guttersnipe is a cool card and I can see it working really well in the deck but I'm not sure that is the strategy I want to go. I've been screwed too many times by that card so using it might leave a bad taste in my mouth. I was running Electrostatic Field because it's a good blocker and does some poke damage but I think I want to focus more on getting my creatures beefy and swinging.

Again, thanks for the advice! I'll be sure to update this page once I've tested out some different things.
