The Raven's Warning Discussion

DrSnipy on Nevi in the making

Hey! Sadly The Raven's Warning doesn't work on the third lore counter, because Wishboards are "disabled" in commander. If your play group is okay with it, or if you play the warning just for the first 2 counters, Ignore me. If not, you might want to take that out :)

Birds is a surprisingly well supported tribe, and flying tribal has been getting a fair bit of support recently. So building birds in commander can be both fun and powerful because you can combine old and new cards.

A creature has to be a Legendary creature to be legal as your commander. The classic option for birds would be Kangee, Aerie Keeper . Some other options that are more "Flying tribal" than bird tribal could be Kangee, Sky Warden (a very budget-friendly option), Isperia the Inscrutable , Akim, the Soaring Wind , Derevi, Empyrial Tactician or Alela, Artful Provocateur .

Now you should decide whether you want cards that support having Birds specifically: Aven Brigadier , Celestial Gatekeeper , Crookclaw Elder , Seaside Haven , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Airborne Aid , Migratory Route , Animal Sanctuary etc. Or if you just want cheap flyers that may or may not be birds and just play flying tribal: Battle Screech , Favorable Winds , Gravitational Shift , Gust of Wind , Island Sanctuary , Kangee's Lieutenant , Lofty Denial , Pride of the Clouds , Rally of Wings , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Siani, Eye of the Storm , Skycat Sovereign , Soulcatcher , The Raven's Warning , Thunderclap Wyvern , Tide Skimmer , Warden of Evos Isle , Watcher of the Spheres , Waterkin Shaman , Windstorm Drake , Winged Words , Battle Screech .

Your list has a lot of pretty bad cards that don't support your strategy. I would cut Healing Salve , Resupply , Take Up Arms , Call to Mind , Survival Cache , Refurbish (has 4 targets in your deck and no matter what you get you pay more mana than you should), Siegecraft etc. Pure lifegain spells are bad unless you build around them, and this is supposed to be a bird/flying deck right? Cards that make tokens without flying are not great because your lords and synergy don't make them better. So even though Raise the Alarm is a solid magic card, you would prolly rather have like a Mistral Charger because you can build synergy around it.

Removal is always good. You can almost never have too much of it. However, if you are really cool, you can try to play removal and card draw that is flavorful and synergistic as well: Ravenform , Wing Shards , Aerial Assault , Swan Song , Winged Words , Gust of Wind , Lofty Denial . Also, sol ring is great but more ramp is usually a good idea in commander, and Azorius Keyrune is also a bird!

Good luck with the screechy dudes!

As mentioned, the wish cycle can do it in any format that uses a sideboard. Fae of Wishes and The Raven's Warning are ones that are legal in standard. They can all get you cards from your sideboard in formats that use a sideboard.

I am not sure there is any way to make it fast enough for competitive play. It's pretty janky. To get it more reliable we could adjust the list for some draw however.

We could cut some slots and add some card advantage; -1 Volcanic Geyser , -1 Niko Aris , -1 Leafkin Avenger , -1 Stonework Packbeast .
Then go +4 Omen of the Sea or +4 The Raven's Warning .

That might make it more consistant. The saga is slower to the payoff but you can put key pieces in your sideboard.

Solid deck. One thing that I think would be pretty cool is if you put Discontinuity in the side board to allow you to get extra turns, which you can fetch with The Raven's Warning .

Just a thought.
