Worth splashing green for Scattershot Archer, probably. Seems like the easiest way to deprive them of their birds while keeping your own, should you want them.

Great card and really hard to get rid of since it can prevent most removal from your opponent, including Krosan Grip for instance.
Anything a player will be able to cast once this card hits the table are creatures, what makes watching your opponent easier most of the time.
Scattershot Archer for instance can keep the heaven clean in case you mainly run other creature cards which don't mind this.
And even if you don't use cards like the archer you could make use of damage prevention as from Guardian Seraph and consider adding Pride of the Clouds and Radiant, Archangel, which will do a pretty good job especially if they get trample.
It's also fun when you cast noncreature spells that can't be countered, since it will both resolve and provide an accordant amount of bird.

Anybody considered Battletide Alchemist or Guardian Seraph or something like that?

Engineered Plague gets rid of the pesky birds, if needed.

I actually use this card offensively in combo decks.

Combo's amusingly with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. You get 3/3 birds, your opponents get nothing.

@ Elysiume
Cards like Volcanic Fallout wouldn't work because they'd be countered by Dovscape before killing the doves.

Belz_: "Engineered Plague gets rid of the pesky birds, if needed."

And how, exactly, do you propose to cast your Plague? Because I imagine you'll end up with 3 bird tokens, instead.

Used it on Blightsteel Colossus.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
