Adenthar on Gisela's angels

Thanks a lot wintermoon !

i will try to get Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Resolute Archangel and Archangel Avacyn  Flip

Iona and Siege Dragon seems very good but not so cheap in mana

I can't wait to see your next suggestions :) !

Wintermoon on Gisela's angels

If you are doing a deck with angels, imo these are a must have:

Now, because this is also a deck where you want damage, Archangel Avacyn  Flip is also a must have. If she flips when Gisela is in play, she will be dealing only 1 damage to your creatures but 6 damage to everything else, basicly a boardwipe. Aurelia's Fury, Harsh Mentor and Siege Dragon are also cards I would run in a deck like this.

Back home I think I have some more good cards that would fit here well. If you want I can give you some more suggestions later.

Another few changes to make this more lethal and playable Ive add/removed the following

Out: Touch of Darkness , Blood Moon , Kolaghan Monument

In: Archangel Avacyn  Flip , Gisela, the Broken Blade , Bruna, the Fading Light

I wanted to have Brisela, Voice of Nightmares in the deck even though its rare for it to ever appear in play, just one of those gotta have combos :)

boomycastle I thought about Archangel Avacyn  Flip and a lot of combos that involved Pyrohemia, Boros Reckoner, and Solitary Confinement. In this deck Torpor Orb kind of makes Avacyn useless.

Aurelia, the Warleader is interesting and Very strong: however I have seen other decks with her and wanted to do something different.

I prefer Painful Lesson to Read the Bones, as the versatility means you can use it to finish off an Opponent who is on 2 life.

You have mentioned upgrades, and I think you would do well to incorporate 4x Vraska's Contempt, as Planeswalkers cause this problems.

It would also allow you to get rid of Creatures lands, which easily skirt Declaration in Stone, and Liliana, the Last Hope.

You've got Eerie Interlude (I would make this 4x), but you can also use Blossoming Defense, and Heroic Intervention to protect your Creatures.

Winds of Qal Sisma is another personal favourite of mine.

Alternatively, you could run Archangel Avacyn  Flip as she gives you lots of options, including Indestructibility.

You are missing some bigger Creatures with evasion. Something like Archangel Avacyn  Flip, and Gisela, the Broken Blade, or Angel of Sanctions, could work.

This is definitely a good start. I look forward to where this brew might end up.

Wintermoon on Heaven's Betrayal (Proto Name)

Nice deck, I too thought about doing one with Gisela as the commander but changed my mind eventually.

Anyway, I would suggest Archangel Avacyn  Flip. When she flips with Gisela in play she basicly becomes a boardwipe for your opponents, doing 6 damage to their creatures and only 1 damage to yours.

Argy on 12-Lord Thopter Assault

Just did a playtest.

My inferior deck thrashed this one.

You got in early damage but I was able to offset it with Sorin's -X ability.

I was able to sac a Zombie using Kalitas' ability, which transformed Archangel Avacyn  Flip, and wiped your board. I had a Languish in hand anyway.

I had gotten enough hits in with Archangel Avacyn  Flip that hitting you with Avacyn, the Purifier finished you off.


Argy on Cast a Shadow [Frontier]

1 month ago

I'm confused.

You said Frontier is dead, but that you play it with friends.

Tetzimoc, Primal Death is excellent in Standard, I have it in Flame-Chained, but isn't right for this deck.

It needs Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for its Lifelink, and Archangel Avacyn  Flip for the many things that card offers.

I've never liked seeing people post a link to their deck in the Comments for somebody else's.

It feels a little bit like trying to springboard off someone else's work.

If you want help, better to ask on that person's Profile.
