Bird Maiden



This starts from the comment that my friend gave me in Facebook. He dared me to make a deck from Bird Maiden as he has quite nice collection of Bird Maidens – over 60 of them. 😉

So what to make out of Bird Maiden? This is what I came up with:

The deck

4 x Bird Maiden
4 x Buried Alive
1 x Entomb
2 x Zombify
4 x Rise from the Grave
2 x Dance of the Dead
4 x Earthbind
2 x Torture
4 x Seizures
2 x Exotic disease
2 x Phyresis
1 x Last Word
4 x Terminate
4 x Tarnished Citadel
1 x City of Brass
1 x Bloodstained mire
1 x sulfurous springs
6 x Mountain
11 x Swamp

How to play

The basic idea is to bury the Bird Maiden alive (or entomb her) and then turn her into a zombie (very accurately so via Rise from the grave) or alternatively you can just force the dead Maiden to dance by your whistle.

Now that we’re at it, we can also bind the Maiden to earth and torture her. I totally expect her to have a headache so I added Seizures to the deck. And if you ask me, bird maiden probably carries an exotic disease (and with Phyresis you can make sure she has infect).

That annoying Maiden probably tries to have the Last Word, hence it’s better to just Terminate her as soon as possible – as if there would be a way to cast the sole Last Word anyway.


I never really liked Bird Maiden.
