Angrath, Captain of Chaos Discussion

rdean14, yeah I've done quite a bit of lore-investigation into Angrath. He's one of my favorite Planeswalkers, along with Sarkhan, Sorin, Kaya and Lukka.
When Angrath uses his magic, his body exudes unimaginable heat. He uses this heat to turn his chains and hammer into glowing-hot weapons, along with his horns, fists and breath. In fact, most (or at least a good amount) Planeswalkers vanish in a blinding yellow-white light when they leave their world for a new one. Not Angrath. He literally erupts the land around him into an inferno-like explosion. The magic itself ignites the inner rage in those around them, making them blind slaves to raw emotional anger.
During War of the Spark, Angrath, Captain of Chaos, Angrath was not leading the charge with Bolas against Ravnica. He was actually taking control of the Eternals and leading siege toward Bolas. Now, he did not care what stood in his path - be it living or inanimate, if you stood between he and Bolas, it was destroyed. But, during WAR, Angrath was actually on the good side. ;)

Other equipment you may have already considered:
Loxodon Warhammer (underrated, in my experience, and awesome with first strike)

I’d suggest clone creatures to target Storm Fleet Sprinter Or other pirates with invasion.
Could all work and then you can swing with multiple unblockable pirates.
Angrath, Captain of Chaos also helps you connect damage with more pirates.
I’d also suggest Strionic Resonator to copy the Admiral’s ability.
Love the concept, I’ve brewed up ideas for this Commander loads haha.
Good luck with the deck!

Hey man nice looking deck have you considered Angrath, Captain of Chaos?
I run him in a similar deck and find his passive great for pushing damage through. He also provides another amass trigger.
I'm thinking of using this deck to modify mine. Amass and Overwhelm if you want to check it out.

ProximaNova this deck it's orzhov! In the maybeboard there is Angrath, Captain of Chaos,it is also red but playable with two black mana,but it's not in the deck at the moment. What do you think of the deck? If you want, look at my other decks too and tell me what you think ^^

Mardu wants to attack as often as possible, which makes this a bit of a mechanic fail as it restricts mobility on the boardstate. However, it's a bit of a vorthos win as it funnels combat down to 1v1 battles. If you are able to build around this, it really makes a powerful card.
For example, if you run Iroas, God of Victory or Angrath, Captain of Chaos then all of a sudden no opponent can block your incoming assaults as they may only block with one creature each, and they need a minimum of two. It also ties in nicely with Phyrexian Obliterator if they only control creatures with a relatively high power. Because you want to attack and are allowed up to three attackers (EDH designed), Eldrazi with Annihilator become quite impactful as well since they have both vigilance and haste now.
You can also play it into Mathas, Fiend Seeker decks to reign in his terror. It slows games down, meaning you have more time to take full advantage of his bounty counters.
Beautiful synergy with Zurgo Helmsmasher, as well.
There is also a very nasty work-around with this card, too. Not only do creatures with Myriad (Link) become horrendously more powerful, you can also take advantage of cards that either create or drop creatures into play attacking, such as Moonsilver Spear, Mardu Ascendancy, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and Kaalia of the Vast This is because they aren't being declared as attackers, and therefore not restricted to this card's rules.
I'd really love constructive criticism on this one, if you don't mind. I feel really quite proud of this design.

This deck feels like it’s trying to do a lot of different things. I ran a couple of sample hands and I saw some glimmers, but also like it runs out of gas. Toxic Deluge felt counter productive when you’re not getting stuff back often or drawing a lot of cards. Although if you’re on your heels I see the benefit.
One hand I did get Phyrexian Reclamation and a sac outlet. But I also got Oathsworn Vampire, Purphoros and Exquisite Blood, so that line took precedence. I love me some Olivia Voldaren and Mirri the Cursed but I drew them both in my test hands and they’re just so underwhelming without a shell that supports them.
Like I said, some nice glimmers with a solid foundation, but I think the problem with vampire creatures is they don’t have much to unite them other than Edgar himself. The madness line of play doesn’t lend itself to this deck very well though, so drain and gain it is, but then you’re not really synergizing with Edgar. Other than etb triggers and swinging away with tokens.
Cruel Celebrant could fit here, and Malakir Bloodwitch. I’m not a big fan of Vampiric Rites but I have very high expectations of that role, I’d rather just see Dusk Legion Zealot and a way to return him to hand after sacrificing him. But again, that’s just me. I was excited about vampiric rites at first but it never did enough in the environments I’ve played it in. Maybe Stensia Masquerade and Angrath, Captain of Chaos to make your dudes harder to block?
I have a lot of thoughts, and a lot of potential directions to go. Even Call the Bloodline and Bloodline Necromancer seem interesting. A deck built with Olivia, Mobilized for War and Anje Falkenrath as lieutenants and a madness/reanimating subtheme could be fun. Strong? I dunno though.
What do you think?
