Today I am going to be reviewing the Take to the Sky Intro Pack. It wins by dealing damage using hard-to-block fliers, while stalling on the ground with high toughness creatures such as Nivix Barrier.
Soulblade Djinn is a 4/3 with flying for 5 mana, and when you cast a noncreature spell, creatures you control get +1/+1 until end of turn. This can be really effective if you already have accumulated a significant flying army and want to power them up for some extra damage. This deck has 5 two-drop noncreature spells, so you can easily trigger Soulblade’s effect quite quickly. Alhammarret, High Arbiter has an okay extraction effect, but the fact you can only target cards in their hand is a big downside. As a 5/5 flier for 7 mana, it’s not very efficient.
Totem-Guide Hartebeest is a 2/5 for 5 mana, making it a good ground blocker while your squadrons of fliers are dealing damage. But also, when it enters the battlefield, you can get a aura from your deck and put it into your hand. This deck has 6 auras, 4 of them are pacifism-like auras, so this card becomes useful when there is a creature you need to take care of. Thunderclap Wyvern is a 2/3 flier with flash for 4 mana, and it gives all other creatures +1/+1. Great as an emergency blocker, and when you flash it in, you can give your opponent an unexpected surprise when all of your creatures suddenly get +1/+1. Faerie Miscreant is an 1/1 flier for 1 mana, and when it enters the battlefield you draw a card for each Faerie Miscreant you control, this deck has 3, which makes it pretty useful. It’s also a great early flying attacker.
Cards That You Should Add
Aspiring Aeronaut is good in this deck because it gives you two fliers, and two bodies are always better than one!
Archangel of Tithes is a great 3/5 flier for 4 mana, and when it’s untapped, it forces your opponent to pay 1 mana for each creature they want to attack with, and when it’s attacking, your opponent has to pay 1 mana for each creature they want to block with, this is a great creature for limiting opponent’s blockers and attackers.
Dragonlord Ojutai is a great 5/4 flier for 5 mana, because when it deals combat damage to a player, you get to look at the top 3 cards of your library, put one into your hand, and the rest on the bottom of your library.
Thanks for looking at his Product Review! I hope you enjoyed it!
