Angelic Wall Discussion
2 months ago
Since the secondary ability of Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs only works with deserts and I'm trying to modernize this deck, I found some potential replacements, as there's no point in including slow lands for a single creature.
- Steel Wall
- Oona's Gatewarden
- Perimeter Captain
- Order of the Stars
- Consulate Skygate
- Wall of Tanglecord
- Cathedral Membrane
- Thing in the Ice Flip
- Returned Phalanx
- Murmuring Phantasm
- Ludevic's Test Subject Flip
- Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch
- Jeskai Barricade
- Geist of the Lonely Vigil
- Fog Bank
- Angelic Wall
- Vertigo Spawn
- Wall of Omens
- Wall of Essence
I really like Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch because of how bouncing enemy threats is a big theme of this deck, but I could also see Thing in the Ice Flip being a replacement for both Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs as well as Striped Riverwinder though it doesn't get Hexproof. Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

solar, the one idea I had for Sylvan Caryatid is that if I had Worship on the battlefield it would be almost impossible to lose the game. The other upside to Sylvan Caryatid is that it can't be dismembered which might not be as much of a problem as I think it might be, I'd have to test it out. I like the idea of Jaddi Offshoot because it's cheap and it would give some lifegain to help in aggresive/burn decks. I like the idea of Angelic Wall especially with Assault Formation down since it would be a 4/4 flyer for only 2 mana. Do you have any thoughts on what to cut? Also, the reason I have Xenagos, God of Revels is to make Emrakul, the Promised End a 26/26 flying trample with haste. I would get it onto the battlefield using Tooth and Nail for its entwine cost, so I don't have to have it in my hand. I'll check your deck out!
Yams, thanks for the hand discard tips, I think I could just get another Emrakul, the Promised End if it seems like a problem. Those are some good sideboard ideas especially the countermagic since control decks seem like the biggest problem this deck faces.

Since you have plenty of mana ramp, it might be worth adding another Emeria, The Sky Ruin to ensure that you can take advantage of resurrection, or some Weathered Wayfarer to fetch. Having a couple 1-drops couldn't hurt!
Considering the number of legendary angels you're running, I highly recommend adding Avacyn, Angel of Hope. She's a win-con all on her own and can seriously mess with your opponents.
While keeping the casual nature of the deck in mind, it has a lot of inconsistencies. It might be worth cutting some non-legendaries to make play-sets of other non-legendaries.
Finally, Wall of Omens can easily replace Angelic Wall. You have plenty of flying blockers and the card draw is nice, especially if you pair it with some utility flicker like Cloudshift. Cloudshift (or Restoration Angel, keeping in mind angel ineligibility) also has great synergy with Knight of the White Orchid, Angel of Serenity, Hixus, Prison Warden, Sunblast Angel, and Thalia's Lancers.

i would cut Angel of Invention and Angelic Wall. one or two Aegis Angel and Guardian of the Gateless work well. i would also see about getting the soi avacyn. Daybreak Coronet, Angelic Destiny, and Sunbond are very good. i would also consider Graceblade Artisan. i would cut the artifacts and some other things and put in more removal like Swords to Plowshares and the plethora of one or two mana white instants that give you creatures indestructible or protection from colors.

Wall of Tanglecord has a reach ability too, with high defense.

So due to being less than thrilled with my Bant Token deck, I was thinking about rejigging it to be a voltron deck since my commander; Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is pretty good at powering themselves up since I often play multiple opponents in my local magic group, and was considering of changing it to a new theme.
Cards I own
I For control and disruption I have plenty of control cards like Convolute, Counterspell, Simic Charm, Spell Rupture, etc... Disruption includes Divine Reckoning, Pacifism, Diminish, Paralyzing Grasp, Rapid Hybridization, Defang, Cage of Hands As well as stuff that trashes enchantments and Artifacts.
For powering up my commander my Artifact pool is less than ideal, had to work with what I got. They include Trailblazer's Boots, Fireshrieker, Skyblinder Staff, Ring of Evos Isle, Grafted Exoskeleton, and Livewire Lash.
Enchantments and effects for protecting my commander and/or giving them evasion include: Infiltrator's Magemark, Holy Mantle, Guildscorn Ward, Alpha Authority, Ghostform, Sheltering Word, Survive the Night, Haze of Pollen, Shielded Passage, Rogue's Passage etc...
Mana Ramp: Assume all of my mana rocks in the bant deck are going to be cannibalized.
Creatures: I don't have the good stuff to do a true one man voltron, but I can use walls like Angelic Wall, Fog Bank, Wall of Frost for protecting myself and the effects of creatures like Fan Bearer, Mistmeadow Witch, New Prahv Guildmage, to aid my commander so they can swing in for lethal damage.
Cards I'm Scouting to Buy
New commander to pair with Ishai: Reyhan, Last of the Abzan
The cards I'm looking to get for this build would be things like the WUBRG Wards and the dual color protection like Shield of Duty and Reason, and Spectra Ward. Mask of Avacyn, Swiftfoot Boots, Aqueous Form, Steel of the Godhead, Indestructibility, and Battle Mastery
Think this is something that I can/should pull off? Any Budget recommendations?
