I'd take out Angelic Guardian and instead add some Dauntless Bodyguard and a Lyra Dawnbringer or two

How about considering Luminarch Ascension . Great angel token maker, esp. with all the dead mana you may have in late game.

Also, some other great angels to consider are Angel of Finality , Angelic Guardian , Radiant, Archangel , Angel of the Dire Hour .

Angelic Guardian and the other four cards from the M19 Gift Pack show up as illegal cards for a commander deck. I wasn't sure where to report this, so here we are.

Angler Turtle , Immortal Phoenix , Rampaging Brontodon , Vengeant Vampire

Spirits on Kaalia of the Cruel

Hey LordKunai,

Here's some recommendations, budget conscious where I can be.

Lightning Greaves is a critical component of Kaalia of the Vast , I play multiple tutors for it, like Steelshaper's Gift and Stoneforge Mystic . Lightning Greaves is a must, if you can't connect a Haste Kaalia of the Vast swing your going to have a bad time.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a staple, the double ended effect is really the key. She is a bit pricey, so I'll offer some other options tool.

Angel of Despair , I believe is $0.25, another key removal for any permanent! like an Omniscience and drop her in off of an opponents Show and Tell . #Winning

Lands are important, but expensive, Blood Crypt because it's both a Swamp and Mountain is good, Godless Shrine same idea but Plains . Works with the check lands like Isolated Chapel .

Anguished Unmaking & Path to Exile good removal if you have, expensive to buy elsewise. Utter End & Mortify are cheaper alternatives but still exceptional removal spells.

Battlefield Forge is cheap and gives good color indexing. Diabolic Tutor is still okay at CMC4 and very inexpensive to all the reprinting of this tutor.

I would try and hone in on a desired goal and synergize around that. Mine is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel , Land Destruction / Indestructible, Liliana's Contract / Shadowborn Apostle type decks, Worldgorger Dragon , Extra Combat Phases.

You have a little bit of Legendary sub-theme, some protecting yourself and Kaalia of the Vast sub-theme Magus of the Moat / Boros Charm , some recursion with Phyrexian Reclamation . You've got a very strong base of cards, once you pick a synergy, you definitely want to synergize around those core abilities.

You have lots of great cards, and I bet it's extremely fun to play! The Signet's are good, Talisman of Indulgence is cheap and better, I also feel like in most situations Fellwar Stone is better than the signet too. But because of the cost of the other mana sources, augmenting with Signets is a fantastic idea.

I don't like Subterranean Tremors , small ground walkers should matter too much to you, and all of your ramp comes from artifacts so destroying those is not a great idea. If your getting a Lizard, something is off the rails. Something like Vandalblast is better for Artifact control.

Never been a fan of Rogue's Passage , CMC5 for unblockable is too much, perhaps try something like Shizo, Death's Storehouse .

Crackling Doom another card that gets around indestructible, but so do things like Utter End or Anguished Unmaking . Crackling Doom is very unlikely to get what you really need it to solve.

Chancellor of the Annex doesn't seem strong enough for the CMC7, or Stax enough. Odric, Lunarch Marshal seems a little out of place, the A/D/D are pretty tough on their own, if you have enough where engaging Odric, Lunarch Marshal to multiply their abilities you should be winning anyway without him.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip is similar to Angelic Guardian but a little more versatile.

Sneak Attack another way to cheat things in, similar to Quicksilver Amulet .

I don't see anything out of place here, other than some of my comments.

Adarkar Valkyrie has many infinite combos (like infinite combat with Aurelia, the Warleader ) for example. I have a bunch under my Alternative Synergies Considered if your interested. She's powerful, can establish some combos, and fits the build in a budget format.

Caerwyn on Mono Black Infinite Possible?

6 months ago

For fun, I looked into what options you had if you removed the mono-Black requirement.

Options in terms of untap engines are pretty limited in Modern. You have Cacophodon and High Alert .

For High Alert to work, you would have to generate each iteration to go infinite. Priest of the Forgotten Gods provides you the , but you would need three copies of Pitiless Plunder to make up the remainder of the cost.

For Cacophodon to work, you would first need to give it indestructible. Your options would be as follows: Adamant Will , Angelic Guardian (though this might be risky since you would have to attack), Chance for Glory (which gives you an extra turn so its three mana casting cost does not detract from your play significantly), Dauntless Bodyguard , Join Shields , Make a Stand , Resolute Watchdog , Sheltering Light , Song of Freyalise , and Vivien Reid .

You would also need some form of damage outlet that triggers on entering the battlefield or creatures dying. Currently, only Judith, the Scourge Diva works in standard.

You could also use a card like Open the Graves or Desecrated Tomb to generate creatures, which you could sacrifice to Makeshift Munitions , but you will need a copy of Pitiless Plunder to make this work.

To clarify what I meant in my earlier post: Angelic Guardian and the other G18 cards aren't showing as legal in Commander, but they should be. They should also be showing as legal in Standard, Modern, Legacy, Vintage, and I suppose several other niche formats that I don't really know much about.

Rhadamanthus on Angelic Guardian Banned in Commander?

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to make a link. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on with your question: Angelic Guardian

Updating the TappedOut legality system is a manual process and sometimes things get missed. I put a post in the Official Missing/Incorrect Card/Token Thread, so hopefully it will get fixed. Always use MTGCommander.net as the official resource for what's legal in the Commander format.
