zulp, scattershot would kill all the birds, not just theirs, unless you pump them some how

but yeah, guile and this, I pay 1, cast tome scour, counter, remove, bird, repeat about 1 million times, then next turn, swing, and btw, once played, tome scour is still handy for another turn of birds, as long as guile survived

infinate birds ftw

youd still have to keep spamming volcanic fallout to keep an opponent from attacking you, considering once they see you have red, theyd just attak each turn, and play noncreature spells every turn. this card is great with things like pride of the clouds,court hussar, and spirit warden

would be fun in a deck thats mainly zendikar traps. seeing as the cards converted mana cost stays the same, your traps would come out for free or less than thier cc, and would spawn masses of doves

Why not ask Venser, the Sojourner to exile this card on your turn, while you cast all manners of noncreature spells, and then return it before your opponents can cast sorceries, enchantments, artifacts and planeswalkers of their own?

Add Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir to neuter your opponents' instants as well.

I love this card, I'm surprised I never commented on it before.
First off, the art on this is absolutely beautiful. I use it as my profile image on more than one forum.
In regards to this card in actual play: this card is awesome. The obvious use is with Enduring Ideal type lockdowns (see previous comments). But another that can be just as fun is casting this, then using a Shining Shoal into a Chant of Vitu-Ghazi or some such on their end step, then smashing in for way too much damage. Good, clean fun.

Use with uncounterable spells. Then you get the spell as well as loadsa birds.

Imagine a Banefire for 5. You hit someone for 5 and get 6 birds! Not terrible. I'm sure there's some goodies out there with that idea. Also still works fine with storm cards.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
