Dreamweav3r on Kalemne is Best Girl [EDH Primer] v1.6

Thanks Phaetion, I checked your list out and it looks like a very good list for going all in voltron. I tried doing similar strategies and they sometimes work out, not as often as I liked... Maybe its just my playgroup. I desire more value from my deck if my commander becomes impossible to cast, which happens sometimes, then the deck can win on its own. I've thought about Etali, Primal Storm and would like to try him eventually, I'm a little hesitant just because it doesn't do anything right away and puts a target on my back, but I will soon. Hammer of Nazahn ain't a bad card either, though this deck would never utilize it's free equip ability as good as yours and maybe it needs to be played in a deck with more swords. Let me know how your revival goes! I will be making a Anya, Merciless Angel pressure deck eventually.

I used to run Kalemne for a long while (It's my best-ranked deck if I'm not mistaken), and the new Anthology made me bring her back, though I'm doing things differently from last time because I also intend on using Anya, Merciless Angel and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight as well. That said, my heart goes to Devour for Power, which has a special place in my heart for personal reasons.

My list of suggestions for you will be too big to list, so what I'll do is let you go through my deck and maybe you could find some ideas then. It might be outdated, but were I to consider all the new cards, Hammer of Nazahn and Etali, Primal Storm would be the ones I'd consider adding first. Forging Suns Out of Skulls.

I like the Aggravated Assault + Neheb, the Eternal combo and use it myself. Anya, Merciless Angel is really good for attacking multiple times since it can have indestructible. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder also works with this since the more times you attack with him the more people get double strike and lifelink until you decide to finish your turn. Even if you can't kill them from lots of indestructible cards then you can gain as many life points as you want until you pass the turn to them. Tajic, Blade of the Legion would become impossible to stop after a while of attacking with as well.

From my time playing with Saskia, Exquisite Blood is really good if you're looking for lifegain and also works with Saskia's triggers. Whip of Erebos also helps and can bring angels back for one last hit. Anya, Merciless Angel can get pretty big and indestructible in a Saskia deck.

Anya, Merciless Angel is a trap as well, she seems good at first glance but in play the only time she actually does anything impactful is when you're already winning anyways. There are far better options for that slot like Sublime Archangel that are fantastic all the time.

Shane.Allen on Gisela Beatdown

I see this as less of an Aggro deck and more of a deck that is in it for the longer game, If you can go off the damage you can do is very strong and with Gisela you can use her second ability to take less damage in the late game. Later in games you'll always have a threat to drop so keeping the pressure on is really easy.

Some cards that may help or just make it lots of fun.

Quicksilver Amulet to help you get out more big drops faster and sooner.

Anya, Merciless Angel she really seems to fit the deck theme.

Possibility Storm because this deck really screams lets have fun with this card.

Kor Haven this is good support for your deck.

Darksteel Plate is good for really protecting your commander and other big angels.

PhotogenicParasympathetic mmm well I have had a mardu Angel deck in the past. Are you only looking for mono white ones? I believe I have most of the good ones except linvala, so like Tariel, Gisela, Aurelia, the other flip avacyn etc. The only two im interested in keeping are the Angel of hope and tithes really, here is a list:

Gisela, the Broken Blade, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Archangel Avacyn, Restoration Angel, Aurelia, the Warleader, Admonition Angel, Bruna, the Fading Light, Herald of War(foil), Akroma, Angel of Fury, Serra Avenger, Radiant, Archangel, Emeria Angel, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls(comm, FTV, oversized versions), Anya, Merciless Angel, Angel of Despair, Exquisite Archangel, Reya Dawnbringer, and like 10 others under a dollar.
