Feed the Birds

Hi there! I don't know about you but I love birds. I even had a edh bird tribal deck for a while. And while I had a lot of fun with it, I will admit it wasn't the best deck out there. Let's change that! I want to see some great bird tribal cards that will darken the skies of whatever edh game they're a part of. Whether that's commanders, support cards, or anything in-between, I wanna see your creative wings soar!

Now some rules for this competition
1: No joke cards. Some lighthearted easter eggs are fine. But we're looking for these to be functional balanced magic cards.
2: Only 10 entries per person. Any entries beyond that won't be considered.
3: No Entries beyond July 27.
4: No previously existing MTG art.
5: Griffens, sphinxs, or any other winged creatures are not bird tribal unless they specifically support birds somehow

Winners will be posted on July 29th (which is my birthday, more bird tribal is the only present I want.)

Top 5 entries will win:
1st: 5 favorites on cards of their choosing, 3 of my choosing, and a follow
2nd: 4 favorites on cards of their choosing, and 2 of my choosing, and a follow
3rd: 3 favorites on cards of their choosing, and 1 of my choosing, and a follow
4th: 2 favorites on cards of their choosing, and 1 of my choosing
5th: 1 favorite on a card of their, and 1 of my choosing

Also things to keep in mind, 1: the best birds/bird commanders are in bant (w/u/g) colors. Ex. Derevi. But if you wanna go outside the box and make some real cool R/B birds, I'd love to see it! 2: Design these cards with edh in mind. They don't have to be hyper-competitive level of power (though I do welcome it) but they should put birds in the realm of tribal decks to look out for in your next edh game. 2: I'll be grading on, templating spelling, art, flavor, fun, and usability.

That's it! Have a flappy day everyone! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

  • Birds are one of my favorite tribals as well and I play commander edh. I will be all over this contest. I have an older bird i made i think would do well here ill drop it, let me know if old er cards are allowed!
  • Old and new cards people have made are allowed. Id prefer to see new, but if you got some old creations to show off, Id be happy to judge them.

    Hug card for players casting flying creatures, but you get the extra edge of course. Centrally focused on Birds but works with any flying creatures as well.

    meh.
  • Yup, I went 5 color on the last one. It can be used for edh commander very well. Either a proliferate deck or a bird deck.

  • Just saying, Aryanf's cat bird deserves the win. Or second place at least.
