Angel of Sanctions Discussion

landofMordor on Too Many Women in Magic ...

saj0219 I'm totally with you on all of that. Especially #2-3. Granted, one of the main tropes of fantasy is to use stereotypes to communicate effectively, but even then, fantasy should also have a component of transcending those stereotypes so we're not just living our work lives out on Zendikar.

Gleeock I'm with you 100%. The only reason AMK had male angels (Angel of Sanctions) is because Bolas "corrupted" the plane. I think male angels would be super awesome. It's also worth noting that most Demon subtypes are male, if I thought about it off the top of my head. What does that say about our inherent superstitions?

For more life you definitely want Anointer Priest, Elspeth Tirel, Essence Warden, Healer of the Pride, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Suture Priest. All will allow you to pull more life out of your tokens. You also probably want Angel of Sanctions because it's just a token soul ring.

You don't have much token generation for anointed procession. You might want something like Oketra's Monument and Stir the Sands. Off the top of my head those two will go well with it. Also, consider embalm and eternalize cards. They will copy themselves when you use that ability. the best one is Angel of Sanctions to the best of my knowledge, but there are others you can look up

Pc238 on Control Deck? (HELP)

Thanks again for more advice DragonEleven. I now realise the problem with this deck: too much stall cards. I will get rid of most of them, but keep a few and try and replace them with some of the cards you suggested. bellz76 also suggested Cast Out and I have been thinking about using it but now I am certain I should. Angel of Sanctions and Angel of Condemnation both look good too. Thanks for suggesting Nimble Obstructionist and Riddleform, I think these two cards will be very useful in this deck, once I get them. However, I didn't really want to use any win-con cards such as Approach of the Second Sun.

DragonEleven on Control Deck? (HELP)

I think the way your deck is built at the moment is more of a stall deck than a control deck... you're slowing them down more than you're stopping them from doing things.

Maybe take out cards that tap your opponents creatures, reduce their attack, or return them to their hand and put in more counter spells.

More exile cards would also be a good idea... if you can get them, Cast Out and/or Angel of Sanctions would be best, but you could probably try Angel of Condemnation as an alternative.

Nimble Obstructionist would be worth putting in if you can get them.

Riddleform could also work well in this deck instead of a couple of the creatures, and you can use it to scry if you have the extra mana... some additional card draw would also help with excess mana.

You may also want to consider Approach of the Second Sun as a win-con... it works pretty well in control decks.

Control decks usually run more than 20 lands. Since your deck has a low CMC i would cut the 2 Aven of Enduring Hope for 2 extra lands. Also, try swapping some of the single colored lands for duals like Irrigated Farmland, Lumbering Falls, Scattered Groves and Fortified Village or maybe some Evolving Wilds.

The current standard metagame is full of aggro decks, maybe running Primal Druid instead of Manalith and Traveler's Amulet is a good idea. Thraben Inspector is a great card, i would totally swap some of your less impactful creatures like Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs, God-Pharaoh's Faithful and Eternal of Harsh Truths for a set of Thraben Inspector. Also consider swapping Beneath the Sands for Shefet Monitor. Traverse the Ulvenwald is amazing but kinda pricey.

Life goes on is a card i would definetly try to cut for something better. Cards that just gain life are often not worth of a deck slot. Ambuscade is not suited for control decks. Both cards could be swapped for sweepers like Fumigate or Descend upon the Sinful or better spot removal like Cast Out.

Choosing which creatures to run on a control deck is very diferent from choosing creatures for aggro/midrange decks. On control you almost always divide your creatures between support creatures and finishers. The only finishers you have are 2 Striped Riverwinder so i recommend adding some combination of Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Linvala, the Preserver and Angel of Sanctions for a total of 6 or 7 finishers. Casting a Shefet Monitor can also help you close the game but it doesn't have any evasion so i would use them almost exclusively to ramp.

Of your remaining creatures Sidewinder Naga feels really out of place because it is an aggressive, midrange creature on a control deck, Tireless Tracker makes a lot more sense as a support creature.

Unsummon bounce effect is best suited on decks built to exploit the tempo advantage it gives or aggressive decks where temporarily removing a blocker can make a big difference so i would swap it for Spring or Nissa's Renewal.

I think your mana curve is too high for the current meta, which is very fast out of the gate... maybe try taking out some of the 4+ CMC cards for a few 1/2 CMC cards.I'd probably suggest removing 1x Angel of Sanctions and 2x Angel of Condemnation in favour of 3x Selfless Spirit... these should also help against board wipes.

Your mana base also looks like it could use a bit of work, as a 50/50 split is probably not best for a primarily white deck... maybe something like 7x Island and 13x Plains would be better.
