Angel of Vitality Discussion

ItJustMightWork on Mono-white lifegain aggro

I have a few suggestions. First, I would definitely recommend Alseid of Life's Bounty . It's a lifelink body that you can also use to give protection to force attacks through. Hushbringer is also nice as it stops etb and death abilities, has flying, and lifelink already. This can let it be a good target to trigger Heliod, but it also is a non-bo with daxos and impassioned orator. Heliod's Intervention would be good to deal with artifacts and enchantments, and can give life in a pinch. Angel of Vitality makes you gain an extra life each time you gain life and get to be a 4/4, which can be relevant. Shatter the Sky is a great card with gideon, as you keep two creatures, draw a card, and wipe, but it can be dangerous. As for cuts, haazda marshal is too inconsistent, and will generally die when it attacks. Grateful apparition is a pretty good interaction, but can also be underwhelming if you don't get an engine going. Finally, good luck in mono white. I tried and never got too far, but I may try again with the new set.

Hello Esbilon, thank you for your comment

Knight of Autumn can trigger for 5 lifegain with Soul Warden , but true, its a better sideboard card. You are right about Trostani Discordant . Bishop of Wings and Angel of Vitality are just to bad cards i think.

You have very little synergy between Emmara, Soul of the Accord and the rest of the deck as you play only 5 Convoke spells and most of your attackers fly.

Knight of Autumn is a good card in a lot of situations, but I don't think it's something that belongs in your mainboard as it doesn't really contribute to the Angels plan.

Trostani Discordant is best in a go-wide strategy where what you really want to do is beat down with a handful of powerful angels, I'm not sure she's really what you want to be going for.

Instead, I'd try cutting them and play some more lands (maybe 2 Plains and 2 Castle Ardenvale ) and a few Bishop of Wings . Angel of Vitality  could also work as a cheap 4/4 in most situations and it makes it a lot easier to hit that 5 lifegain to trigger Resplendent Angel .

Angel of Grace is also a pretty good card if you can get it down at a crucial time to save yourself, and the lifegain later can be relevant too.

If you're looking for Angels in the early game, Angelic Page , Segovian Angel , Serra Avenger , Resplendent Angel and Angel of Vitality .

I would look into Vitality first, as she's a cheap creature that starts as a 4/4 in the early game before your life total goes below 25, then gets bigger once you recover. Segovian is a bulk common, and is just hilarious. Serra Avenger is powerful, but comes with a built-in limitation where you can't play it when you need it the most. And Resplendent Angel can make more angels as your lifegain starts up.

And good luck with the rest of your league!

Hey there ExtraEasy,

Thanks for your comment and compliment. I'm getting pulled to red due to the good boardwipes ( Deafening Clarion ) I might have in my sideboard, as well as a good 4-drop Angel. I am considering dropping Red, but it'll come down to how useful it is in the sideboard.

Thanks again,


Hey there 9-lives,

Thanks for your comment. I considered Oketra's Monument when the deck was originally just Red-White. However, I decided to add Green for Dromoka's Command , more effective ramp, and Once Upon a Time . I don't think that Oketra's Monument is objectively better than my current ramp choices, as it costs one more, and without T1 Llanowar, then I'm forced to use T3 playing a ramp card instead of playing a Resplendent Angel or Angel of Vitality .

Thanks again,

Hey check out my deck Soul Sisters: Angelic Pressure

I went all in on the +1 counters and angel procs.

Angel of Vitality and Heliod, God of the Sun are currently my only non synergy players but they work. I need input, so tell me what you think.

Great deck! I have a very similar build, check it out. Lifegain (Angels)

My meta has very little removal so I can focus a bit more on populate with Rootborn Defenses . Works amazing, makes a token which triggers lifegain which often makes yet more tokens. Cant forget about that indestructible either.

Soul Warden has similar affect as Seraph Sanctuary . Angel of Vitality is super nice as it nets more life but also is an angel as well.

Note that the Angel of Vitality will synergy with your healing dorks and boost your Bishop of Wings . Bishop also now provides synergy with your other angels, because you now have an Soul Sister Angel deck.
