Wydwen, the Biting Gale occurrence in decks from the last year

Wydwen, the Biting Gale Discussion

Coward_Token on Commander Legends Spoilers

"Abomination of Llanowar" : Woah okay that art is pretty freaky. Simple yet pretty interesting wide-to-high voltron commander trough elfball.

Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar: neat when paired with a trampling partner

Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer: as is the least artifact-friendly, I feel this is kind of a misguided attempt to answer the fairly big demand for a Golem tribal commander. However, this could be the start of a new megacycle, with one partner Splicer per color. Golems for everyone!

Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant: what was ever about this guy? I can only assume it's more mechanically for the board wipes. Anyway, not at all efficient but this + Tombstone Stairwell + Conjurer's Closet is pretty funny. More seriously, delayed/cheap wipes like Planar Collapse or the activation of his Disk lets you afford casting him while still killing a lot of people's stuff, while end-of-turn flickers like Turn to Mist lets you dodge & profit from opposing wipes.

"Flamekin Herald": Honestly kinda underwhelming? I can't think of any commanders -inclusive commanders that can rescue themselves like Wydwen, the Biting Gale

so the way I see it you're actually quite close (33 basic lands means 25 basic lands brings you up to 82)

Sooooo creatures

  • Zephyr Sprite (basic 1 drop flyer, but a 1 drop flyer is good on its own)
  • Wydwen, the Biting Gale (3/3 flyer with an ability that gives you bounce to save itself or add faerie casts)
  • Wasp Lancer (3 mana faerie flyer, that's it)
  • Vendilion Clique (ok, pricey but a good way to say no to an incoming problem)
  • Thieving Sprite (another way to say no to an incoming threat)
  • Silkbind Faerie (untap effects are very exploitable, although often rare)
  • Silkbind Faerie (easy to be a 3/3 flying vigilance for 3)
  • Ringskipper (this one is kinda mostly filler but could be obnoxious to get rid of)
  • Quickling (ok I think this is a diamond in the rough, 2 mana, get a body AND save a faerie from impending doom)
  • Oona's Gatewarden (i know defender BUT WITHER IS SUCH A GOOD MECHANIC)
  • Nightveil Sprite (2 mana 1/2 flyer that lets you look at the top card of your library, with the option to toss)
  • Mistbind Clique (forcing your opponent into an all out play can create quite the opening, timing it before the end of a phase limits their options on what they can do with all that mana)
  • Metropolis Sprite (With anthems that ability could be nasty, especially since early game flyers are often going unblocked)
  • Knacksaw Clique (I hate myself for suggesting this monster of a card but even if you aren't stealing their cards, your permanently removing them and that's just nasty)
  • Faerie Vandal (drawing 2 cards in a turn isnt hard in blue, so in many cases it will get +1/+1 every turn)
  • Faerie Mechanist (counts as an artifact AND sifts for more)
  • Fae of Wishes (that adventure lets you pull solutions out of thin air)
  • Eye Collector (1/1 with a decent ability)
  • Brazen Borrower (again not budget but another great adventure)
  • Faerie Guidemother (1 drop white with an ok adventure option)
  • Phyrexian Metamorph (clone that can hit artifacts always good, especially in EDH)

Other Stuff

My sanity is lasping soooooo…. Also might want to think of artifact / enchantment recovery cards and good ol’ Elixir of Immortality

Also, you probably want to cut Wydwen, the Biting Gale , Shinechaser and even maybe Spell Queller .

Orbs of Warding might be a direct upgrade to Ivory Mask .

Hello, just wanted to say that Cavern Harpy is just better version of Wydwen, the Biting Gale .

Create an Oona, Queen of the Fae or Wydwen, the Biting Gale planeswalker, or, if you can come up with lore justification, Vendilion Clique .

Dankey: If you are looking for a BU sacrifice deck while controlling the stack then there are a few options. Muldrotha, the Gravetide is just a really busted card overall and if you like the oppressive features of the Sultai triple colors it will give you a lot of value. Dralnu, Lich Lord sounds like what you are looking for but he also has a very severe drawback considering things like Pyrohemia and even Anger of the Gods exist. Wydwen, the Biting Gale is a very safe and annoying option. Although her abilities aren't directly related to sacrificing permanents, you can dodge removal (Either theirs or your own) with her ability. tjalling: I always think there is room for improvement but I love this deck.

Illusionist's Bracers would greatly help out your commander's ability. Also, consider Training Grounds. You could also seriously use a Sol Ring and probably a Thran Dynamo to help accelerate your ability to use Oona. You also might want to consider Notorious Throng and Stinkdrinker Bandit to take advantage of the fact that you are creating a bunch of flying faerie rogues which are presumably attacking, especially the latter.

I'm not sure whether Wydwen, the Biting Gale is quite worth it in your deck, unless I'm missing something, so I'd consider dropping it.

Catalog also seems a bit weak without madness or graveyard recursion. Consider Glimmer of Genius, Hieroglyphic Illumination, Thieves' Fortune, or Thirst for Knowledge instead.

Violet Pall is a bit too much mana for what you are getting even in a faerie deck. Consider Reckless Spite, Malicious Affliction, Eyeblight's Ending, or Doom Blade instead.

Hi, I am trying to build a deck for local multiplayer casual highlander and so far, I have this build with cards I was able to gather from my and my friends collection. It focuses on defense mostly, board control, wipes/bounces etc. The thing I am most unsure about is Wydwen, the Biting Gale as a commander - used her mostly because it was the only UB legend I could get so far :) I was thinking about replacing her with Dralnu, Lich Lord, even though he may be risky to play.

UB Highlander

Any advice on the construction will be appreciated.
