Angel of Sanctions Discussion

Nanande on Trostani lifeparty!

I would definitely add these cards: Phyrexian Processor , Phyrexian Rebirth , Slime Molding (better than it looks since paying 11 mana will give you a 3 mana 10/10 each turn after), Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage (populate mana-sink late game), Parallel Evolution , Illusionist's Bracers (populate twice, for the same price!), Acidic Slime (just an awesome green staple), Sakura-Tribe Elder , Phantom General , Angel of Sanctions (INFINITE REMOVAL EACH TURN!), Beast Within (staple removal in green), Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life (mana acc and lategame big tokens in one)

I would consider these also: Worldspine Wurm , Parallel Lives (awesome, but a bit $$$), Rootborn Defenses (stops a board-wipe and pops), Trostani's Judgment (high cmc, but good value), Overrun (probably wins you the game if you have a few creatures out), Hydra Broodmaster , Austere Command (wipes opponents' boards, but a bit $$$), Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth Tirel (both Elspeths have great board wipes for token decks), Oblivion Ring , Yavimaya Elder , Ajani Goldmane / Ajani, Caller of the Pride (both have great synergy with big lifegains), Baloth Cage Trap (P.S you can play this and populate as combat trick!), Beast Attack (the flashback makes this a good comeback-card in case of board wipe and you need to get the pop-engine going), Blade Splicer (very powerful early-mid game)

I would 100% cut these cards: Take Heart , Centaur Healer , Healer's Hawk , Parhelion Patrol , Candlelight Vigil , Conviction , Noble Purpose , Flight of Equenauts , Siege Wurm , Bounty of Might (no trample=hard to use)

I would also consider cutting these: Lone Rider  Flip, Sumala Woodshaper , Sunscorch Regent , Verdant Eidolon , Scatter the Seeds , Wake the Reflections , Ajani Unyielding

I'd probably run Angel of Sanctions  instead of Admonition Angel , I don't expect to drop a whole lot of lands after I get my 6 drop on the board, and Sanctions can also come back from the dead if they kill it.

Depending on your local meta, I'd also definitely add Stony Silence  and Rest in Peace to the sideboard. Those can really be life-savers.

You may want to consider Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , but a lot of your early drops lack Devotion, so that might not be the best despite the deck being mono-white.

Esbilon on Avacyn/Boros

Having a lot of cards isn't going to help you a lot against mill, I think. You could consider getting something to shuffle your graveyard into your library again. The best would be something like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , but that's quite an expensive card to have just so that you can get your library back, but it has the upside that you don't need to cast it. More reasonable options would be Elixir of Immortality .

I also strongly recommend that if you're not going for a Commander deck, or a commander feel, that you consolidate your deck and play multiple copies of most cards. If it's nice having one copy, it's usually nice having three.

I'd also recommend having some ramp to actually get to play Avacyn, Angel of Hope once in a while ;) Mind Stone , Gold Myr , Boros Signet , and Knight of the White Orchid are things to consider if you don't want to splash green for Avacyn's Pilgrim or some of the pricier mana-dorks.

Some just all-round good cards you may want to consider are Thalia's Lancers to get Avacyn when she's hanging out on the bottom of your library, Angel of Sanctions for getting rid of the opponent's nasty cards, and of course no angels deck is complete without Lyra Dawnbringer these days.

Sudden Demise and Tooth and Claw aren't modern legal, but if you're only playing casually, I guess that doesn't matter much.

I don't think Luminarch Ascension is really worth it. It does nothing when it comes into play, and for at least 4 more turns. Sure, it's just a 2 drop and it does provide devotion, but I only really see that card working well in multiplayer.

Mox Amber also seems like a subpar choice, you don't need the mana-fixing, and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is the only card that really allows it to ramp you. I'd just get another plains, or possibly a fancier mono-white land like Eiganjo Castle, Mistveil Plains or Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

You don't have a whole lot of removal, so I'd definitely consider adding some. Path to Exile and Oblivion Ring are the classics, but Angel of Sanctions is on theme even if it is pretty pricy.

Your curve is pretty high, so maybe consider Knight of the White Orchid, Mind Stone or Weathered Wayfarer. There's also Endless Horizons and Extraplanar Lens. For the second, maybe consider switching to Snow-Covered Plains.

I definitely want more Lyra in my deck, but I'm worried about cutting too many of the early drops. I was more thinking of dropping Angel of Sanctions or Thalia's Lancers. And in the 4 drop slot, I get a lot of mileage out of Archangel of Tithes whenever she drops in a deck with any kind of creature presence.

Personally, I would cut Emmara Tandris. Why? Because while she prevents damage, she is absolutely powerless against the power of Damnation or Merciless Eviction. That's the main reason I cut her from my Trostani deck.

As mentioned before, boardwipes are Trostani's worst enemy. I'd put in Heroic Intervention or Teferi's Protection (a bit more on the pricey side of things, but EXTREMELY effective).

Crested Sunmare, Sandwurm Convergence, Angel of Sanctions, and Ajani Goldmane are all nice cards to have with Trostani.

Here's my less budget take on Trostani if you want some ideas.

shagreel on War Deck

I listened to the CMDR podcast and that brought me here. I play a boros deck however it is a more control style iroas build the list is here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/10-06-15-wifes-boros/ . Wanted to reccomend a few cards and see what you think.

Unlike CMDR central I am a big fan of a sunforger package espically in your deck as the +4/+0 on Aurelia, the Warleader can make a huge difference on your clock and be removed to blink her.

I would like to recommend the following additions to your Sunforger package:

  1. Mistveil Plains, This allows you to reuse one of you sunforger targets by putting it back into your deck from your graveyard
  2. Comeuppance, I consider this an upgrade to Safe Passage as it still prevents damage but also reflects it back to the source of the damage.
  3. Expedition Map, This does not ramp the land out like Wayfarer's Bauble does but it allows you to find any land you need not just a basic
Also you might want to consider a few removal cards like Crush Contraband.

As for other cards to think about for your deck I would consider these Creatures: (I went with an angel theme)

  1. Angelic Page
  2. Blinding Angel
  3. Voice of All
  4. Angel of Serenity, Please note you can exile cards in a graveyard with this, and when it leaves they go back to a players hand
  5. Angel of Sanctions
  6. Angel of Condemnation

Non Creatures: As I went with the Angel theme Urza's Incubator to amke all your angels 2 cheaper, I agree with CMDR central to play Pearl Medallion, also might want to consider Seal of the Guildpact, Lastlythink about Sudden Demise it is similar to Aurelia's Fury but kills the creatures instead of making them not able to block.
