EDIT: Finally got to masters with this! Woohoo!
The deck's consistency dramatically went up when I removed the Valkyrie Spireguard
(they were fine, but often unimpactful) and added the 26th sigil (finally stopped screwing so much) and the Aerialist Trainer
. I thought this last card was going to be bad, but it ends up in a similar position than Whispering Wind
, where it smooths up some bad or mediocre draws, and it blocks super well on the ground. It's also entirely disposable, so you can take "risks" while blocking.
This deck's been performing quite well for me, and it's very accessible since there're no legendaries in the list. I just don't think any legendary card would actually make the deck better than what it is right now.
The trick is to get one big flying threat and protect it. This will vary a little bit depending on what you're facing (sometimes it's better to just go wide, or play defense for a couple of rounds), but that's the gist of it.
Some of the best plays the deck can make is Silverwing Familiar
followed by any equipment.Hammer of Might
is great since it boost your next creature to come into the battlefield "equipped" (+3+3), but Cloudsnake Saddle
is also good, since you'll be able to keep power open for Backlash or Protect.
