Angel of Condemnation Discussion

I think it's fine to have Hushwing Gryff there, I'm just pointing out that it works really badly with Iona, but unless your games are way longer than mine, you won't cast her very often, so maybe just cut her for another Lyra?
Leyline of Sanctity is indeed beter as a 3-of, the problem is that against a creature deck it does next to nothing (other than give you a bit of free Devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ), which is why it lives most of its life in various sideboards.
Angel of Condemnation is too expensive I think. It's 4 mana to cast it, then 3 mana and exertion to exile something, and it only has toughness 3. I much prefer Angel of Sanctions , but if you want to run that, you need to get rid of the gryffs.

I put in there Hushwing Gryff becaus I've been playing with a friend that has a lot of creatures entering the battlefield and triggering abilities but maybe I should sideboard it and keep Fiend Hunter there? Same with Leyline of Sanctity that shutsdown most of mill decks, though I think I really want it in my opening hand so probably should have at least 3?
I put in there Light from Within because I feel like my sublime angels and othere angels have low thoughness and since they carry lots of white symbols I figured it might be a good adition to the deck.
What do you think about Angel of Condemnation ?
Thanks again for your feedback Esbilon!

Heya Fans, and welcome back to our show. After some practice with our potential new hires we come to our first look at what fresh acts we can bring to the audiences.
After much hiring and firing, then rehiring again, and many hours of choreography, I am happy to report we have had decent results. And that I'm convinced there could be physical changes made. If you disagree or think of something better, please share your thoughts in the comments.
These changes aren't so deck altering as some of the others I am still considering, but I'm still not 100% on them. Need some outside input.
Hanna, Ship's Navigator - ???: Closest things I could find that flies is Razor Hippogriff , Sanctum Gargoyle , and Griffin Dreamfinder but that only covers half. Or is this ability really necessary, can we work around our toys being removed and use this spot to fit something new?.
Azorius Keyrune & Ojutai Monument : for lack of a better word they seem 'cute' now. They seemed useful at first because they turned into flying creatures that shared the benefit other flyers do. Better rocks? Keep? Replacements could include Fellwar Stone , Basalt Monolith could be blinked with Brago... unsure what else is good and not overly expensive.
Favorable Winds : Is it really necessary, amid the other +'s it seems the least shiny, even though it's foiled.
Stay tuned for more to come! We're always trying to keep fresh acts, and as accidents happen replacement performers will hopefully be swift coming. Don't forget the suggestion and vote box on your way out. See you next time at The Circus!

Mark for Death I think is a hidden gem for combat deck including red. As for Angel's, you have Subjugator Angel & Sunblast Angel that work well together, esp if you include a blink package. Angel of Condemnation can be used both offensively and defensively. Angel of Finality for gy hate, Brisella for shiggles, Angelic Arbiter to slow things down.

Why do you suggest cutting Angel of Despair . Eldrazi Displacer and Twilight Prophet they follow the theme of the bounce flicker strategy and with re-occurable flicker engines they are too strong? Just wondering your thoughts on those. I like Dance of the Dead because its re-occurable with Sun Titan . Defintly looking to add pupeteer clique and Angel of Condemnation . I swapped in the chupacabra for the archon of justice.

Thanks SomaCruz, lots of great suggestions here. I really wrestled with the angel decisions for this deck - there's so many amazing ones. I debated as to whether or not I should include each of the ones you've mentioned so I'll try to explain the 'why' behind my omissions.
Angel of Jubilation is excellent, love the casting cost and lord effect but she didn't make the cut because I need to be able to pay life for one of my win conditions, Aetherflux Reservoir . Angel of Condemnation and Angel of Sanctions are good removal options, but ultimately I decided that I'm running enough removal. I may revisit that line of thinking if it becomes a recurring problem, perhaps replace Angel of Serenity with one of these cheaper, less win-more options. Now having said that, looking at Admonition Angel again, yeah. That needs to be in here. You're also right about Angelic Skirmisher so I think I'll take that out and swap in Angelic Field Marshal , good call. Sunblast Angel is awesome and is indeed in here already. I thought about Karmic Guide and Dawnbreak Reclaimer as recursion options but I am actually comfortable with the current recursion amount ( Bruna, the Fading Light , Emeria Shepherd , Reya Dawnbringer , Defy Death , Buried Ruin & Emeria, The Sky Ruin ).
Dawn of Hope and Smothering Tithe make a lot of sense and should probably be in here, I'm just not certain what to cut for them yet. I'm luke warm on Geier Reach Sanitarium and Inventors' Fair in here but I see what you're getting at, likewise with Weathered Wayfarer & Expedition Map .
Thank you for the good ideas and let me know when/if you post your Lyra deck, I'd be keen to check it out.

Consider Ravenous Chupacabra Orzhov Locket Junk Diver Dead Man's Chest Big Game Hunter Settle the Wreckage Angel of Condemnation Fiend Hunter weird way to actually permanently exile creatures with this since it's two paragraphs and has 2 triggers on the stack. Flickerform Puppeteer Clique not sure but may be able to permanently steal with this if you exile it with a different card so it's not in when the exile trigger goes off. Didnt look up the interaction/rules. Triad of Fates slow but works perfect for what you want. Maybe Body Snatcher this one is kinda a stretch-ish.

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.
I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.
Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.
Let me know how the list comes along.
