Angelic Arbiter Discussion
1 week ago
Updates: Out Sunblast Angel, in theory it seems but just never does as much as you want it to. Angelic Renewal, often I find I don't even have time to cast it, though its good if theres a lot of spot removal in your meta. Hammer mage ive moved to the maybe/sideboard. Some decks cant win if you cast it, at least until they get rid of it, but its also very slow an mana inefficient. Faithless Looting was just never as good as I wanted it to be.
In: Iona, Shield of Emeria, Angelic Arbiter, Platinum Angel these 3 can shut down a wide range of problems that opponents may try to throw your way. Angelic Arbiter is particularly sweet against decks that try to use Craterhoof Behemoth or other overrun type of effects. Boros Locket will try this out, see if its worth card draw ability.

I reckon average CMC probably needs to come down overall. You have almost no ramp in the deck, afterall, only like 5 cards. 21 at >5 CMC seems pretty whack, especially when your commander is a mana sink. Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves seems reasonable value with your creature synergies.
Felidar Sovereign seems not synergistic. Low life gain opportunities.
Reya Dawnbringer is clunk town, particularly with lots of other ways to reanimate/prevent creatures dying.
Hydra Broodmaster will probably be a 2 turn process. That's usually a 7/7 for 6, followed up by 3 3/3s if it lives. 19 power for 13 mana isn't really an exceptional rate on mana efficiency, and it offers so little utility.
Yosei, the Morning Star seems ambitious with your fairly small reanimator suite.
Sunscorch Regent seems a bit like a do-nothing fatty.
The Great Aurora feels pretty bad when you really aren't a dedicated token deck.
Angelic Arbiter is a giant awkward fatty that ALSO gives your opponent choices. Don't love it.
The 'aura package' might be too cute. I think you already are working in a lot of different directions there, between trying to be a counters deck, and a hatebears deck, and a tokens deck. Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim are not exceptional. This makes Lignify pretty bad too.
You have a variety of field sweeps despite being a creature deck. I don't think this is wrong, but given the effort you've put into 'indestructible synergy', the sweeps that bypass indestructible seem problematic for you. Note, this still leaves you with 5 sweeps after Hallowed Burial and Descend upon the Sinful are cut.

I don't run Consecrated Sphinx and Avacyn, Angel of Hope because of their price, but I've recently been looking to trade for them. Angelic Arbiter is a card that comes with a big target on it's head. I use to run it but I got tired of paying 7 mana to trade for a removal spell without getting any value. Quicksilver Amulet seems super good though, and not too expensive, any idea what I'd cut for it?

I used to run Isperia. Mine was more of a control version, but I recommend good old Consecrated Sphinx, maybe Angelic Arbiter, and Quicksilver Amulet. It's always fun to tutor for a flier and cheat it into play. Oh, and Avacyn, Angel of Hope, because she's awesome.

Solemn Simulacrum I know, he's annoying and expensive and in every deck but he RAmPS AND DRAWS AND IS COLOURLESS LIKE BLEH
Pristine Talisman Triggers your life-gain abilities.
Gravestorm MAN that theming
Ob Nixilis Reignited one of THE cheapest walkers around
Krav, the Unredeemed and his partner Regna, the Redeemer can generate card advantage by searching for each other, seem to be on theme (life gain and tokens are both parts of this deck, see your commander for details, but krav specifically lets you draw a shit TON of cards. Also, gives you some sac outlet ability and ridiculously tiny activation cost)
Necropotence this IS a more expensive card and with good reason. But of all the "more expensive card draw" cards i believe it is the LEAST more expensive. Seriously this card blows games out. (SIDENOTE this works SUPER WELL with your axis of mortality, necropotence yourself to 1 in response to the trigger then swap with someone to go right back to 35)
Harvester of Souls Gimme card draw for your creatures. Tax'ing the hell out of the entry to hell.
Actually on-theme cards that are really mean:
Magus of the Abyss There's a REASON people refer to chumping every turn as abyss-ing
Infernal Darkness a card you can probably find for 3$ or less, ruins people's happy fun times (except you)
Call to the Grave See above regarding magyss of the abyss.
Patron of the Nezumi Pay the death tax
World Queller This one's especially spicy cause you can choose a permanent type you DON'T have one of.
Angelic Arbiter A little high on the curve tbh but does make your opponents choose combat or spells
Aura of Silence I really think this is a must-have card for this strat.
Archfiend of Depravity New government law, every player shall have no more than 2 creatures. Communism at work, the government gets as many as it wants.
Magister of Worth A VERY thematic board wipe. (it will ALWAYS be a board wipe)
Cliffhaven Vampire For all those extorts and life linkers.
Leonin Arbiter Seriously punishes decks with greedy manabases and green decks
Aven Mindcensor See Leonin Arbiter
Oathsworn Vampire This guy is great card advantage and a recurrable chump for your "symmetric" forced sacrifice effects
Windborn Muse Better than Baird IMO
Orb of Dreams EVERYTHING is tapped
Utter End Seems to me a better card than Mortify, even if it costs 1 more.
Hushwing Gryff Flash torpor orb fucks SO MANY DECKS
Descent into Madness Although this is only particularly strong if you have a huge draw-engine to keep exiling bad cards from your hand instead of permanents.
False Prophet HOW IS THIS CARD SO CHEAP???
Words of Waste Can be powerful but may require too much tuning of mana/draw to be actually good.
Kataki, War's Wage expensive but powerful effect.
That's all for now. too many options honestly.

Making some updates to address some of the concerns I have with the early version of this deck:
(no need to have an extreme mana base with this early of a deck version. Expect mana base to continue to change)
(no ETB )
(no ETB, cost reduction on turn 5 not powerful enough)
(expensive value negated by real ramp)
(too expensive for a 2 color deck)

I took Angelic Arbiter out of my deck because it's ability counters Yennett's.
