Awesome tips! I picked up a few Hardened Scales, replaced Angelic Skirmisher with Angelic Overseer, and filled out my playlet of Champion of the Parish. I'll update the list, but keep the suggestions coming, loving the help!

Hey Geomonbla.

As suggestions, I think that you may do this changes:

With this changes your deck can be more aggresive, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is good to avoid annoning removals on the firsts turns. And if your budget allows it, you can replace the taplands by some fastlands, shocklands, fetchlands and more Cavern of Souls.

Greets, TheSimikBOat :]

I'm also in favor of dropping Mardu Hateblade for another copy of Champion of the Parish. Did you mean Angelic Overseer instead of Angelic Skirmisher? The skirmisher's not bad, but at 6 mana and not a human, it just doesn't play well here.

If your budget allows it, swapping your comes-into-play-tapped lands for Fetchlands would be a great upgrade. If you're looking for +1/+1 counters and returning small creatures to the battlefield, then I"d recommend Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants over Liliana in the planeswalker slot.

How about 3 Hardened Scales, 4 Collected Company, and getting the 4th Champion of the Parish in there?
Your instants and Liliana are bit top heavy or better as SB cards, and Angelic Skirmisher is... six mana, and not a human.

Have you looked at any of the human meta decks before?

Nice to see a new player to EDH, if you ever have any questions just ask.


I have a few preliminary suggestions for you.

Taking advantage of the 0 power of your walls is a must here (so avoiding things that give your walls +1/+1 is advisable. Rather, go for effects like Stalwart Shield-Bearers instead).

Giving your walls vigilance (and other things) is a powerful thing to do from my experience.

I have a lot more to suggest, but I'll hold them unless you have specific ideas you are looking for. I also have my own Arcades deck that I have built that I would highly recommend looking at.

Response to Vargavaka comment.

It ramps like crazy almost have no problem with the CMC. I am having trouble with control decks; they are able to destroy my one or two big creatures leaving me with little cards in hand and a bunch of useless equipment. I’m thinking about upping the number of draw cards.
I do have several things to protect me against wrath effects like Teferi's Protection, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, and Wild Ricochet If the spell is targeted. I also can tutor for Teferi and Wild Ricochet with Sunforger. I have more trouble with repeated single target removal then I do wrath effects, but Selfless Spirit dose sound very good option. I can also reoccur its effect with Sun Titan.
Remove:

  • Treasure Nabber: Likely to get removed if non green, little effect on green players.
  • Archangel of Thune: Not going wide, most of the time I have few creatures on battlefield making the effect very weak.
  • Angelic Skirmisher: Most other angel have one or more of the effects granted, making it less powerful.
  • Blade of Selves: Not enough ETB effects or synergy. CMC high to equip.

Adding Cards:

  • Combustible Gearhulk: More card draw, with high CMC can do massive damage with commander out. Synergizes well with commander and top card manipulation.
  • Etali, Primal Storm: Cheating cards in to play. Synergizes well with high CMC deck and top card manipulation.
  • Druidic Satchel: Good Ramp and Blockers. Synergizes well with top card manipulation.
  • Selfless Spirit: Good protect from board wipes, and repeatable with Sun Titan.
