Angelic Arbiter Discussion
1 week ago
Some words to this decklist from a fellow stax player here.
For a stax deck you are pretty slow and have a really high mana curve. Fast Decks will simply overwhelm you before you get to a point of control. The Angelic Arbiter comes way to late for example and does not much for stax. I would suggest to take a look at the stax primer: klick here
Better take in some mana rocks and set your sight more on the land count then on the punishment. Because you will punish yourself while your opponent will punish you too as fast as possible and you have very few means to stop him from hitting you with at least 2 creatures. Remember: There are still counters in the game and spot removal and you will face them.
I would cut Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker too since she does not prevent the damage that might kill you. Stuffy Doll is cool but with 5 mana you better get yourself some mana rocks in here and then you might still die to flyers.
I would cut all lands that come into play too since they hurt you more then needed with Static Orb out. Alternately you should look for cards to go around the orb. Then you could still play those.
The key to stax is that you should punish your opponent more then yourself. As it is the deck punished you almost equally, like 60 to 40.
Quicksilver Amulet is a good card but what for? In stax you usually don't need any big mana cost creatures to flash in. In a 60 card deck you can run almost no creatures at all and still get no damage from your opponent.
The rest sounds pretty interesting. Keep those enchantments and do sth with them while keeping the deck at a lower risk level for yourself.
Last suggestion: How about a Pox build? Though this would cut a lot of those cool enchantments you put in here sadly. If you want to keep it with those in I will be really excited to see the deck progress.
I hope this helped. Greets MA.

I have ordered Reya Dawnbringer, Angel of the Dire Hour, Angelic Arbiter, Archangel of Tithes, and Celestial Mantle. I have thought of adding these to the deck but I am at an impasse on what to replace.

"Absolute garbage deck with little to no chance of winning" - well not with that attitude! I kid, but in all seriousness, it sounds like you're having a tough time with your deck. I guess it'd be safe to assume you ha ve no reliable wincons. So, we have two options here - you switch commanders, or try and figure out something what can enable you to win. I'll give you my thoughts on each option:
Switching commanders: So, you have a commander that's an angel. To my surprise, she's the only WB angel there is. Go figure. So every other option is non-angel...but you do have some very interesting choices.
Mind you, I didn't list all of the cards because IMO, these are probably the more popular choices and the most expensive (sorry!). The idea behind choosing a commander is choosing a creature that speaks to you. Something you like about the way they play, what they embody stuff like that. If you have any thoughts regarding any of the previously mentioned cards, let me know and we can try to build a deck that's more centered around it.
Figure out something - so if we stick with Selenia, Dark Angel as our commander I think the most reliable way to get her to win is to voltron her up. Basically, we'd just rely mostly on just her winning us the game. So we would use cards like:
Just to name a few. The idea would be that your commander would be so well equipped that she'd be nigh impossible to deal with for hte rest of the table. Additionally, you'd have to have a means of protecting yourself. Cards like:
- Ghostly Prison
- Angelic Arbiter
- Privileged Position
- Engineered Plague
- Hissing Miasma
- Ensnaring Bridge
- No Mercy
Just to name a few. But the idea is that you build up a defense while your opponents have to deal with your commander who will stand vigil in front of the wall you build. As you constantly equip and build her up, she becomes a legitmate threat on the board. Of course, there are other creatures that are better suited to this strategy, but given what she has this is the best I can come up with. I'm sure there are smarter people out there that would have better ideas though. Don't give up!

Cool deck, the backstory provides a nice touch! I think to lower the curve, you could replace Angelic Arbiter and Blazing Archon with good wrath effects like Toxic Deluge or Austere Command. Oath of Liliana can also be quite good, providing an edict effect for each opponent while protecting your walkers.

I mean you won't draw it every game and he will only really be used to attack the turn he comes in because of his attack alone requirement. I am not sure what to pull for it but Angelic Arbiter is great for multiplayer edh since it really hurts your opponents. Especially if you get it out early with Kaalia

Made some changes, some of which may not be permanent depending on their performance.
Thoughts? Any alternate suggestions? Let me know.
