AioriaxWingz on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

Silverblade Paladin can make both himself and Archangel Avacyn  Flip gain Double Strike.

I'm suggest swap Swiftblade Vindicator with Adorned Pouncer xD

Possibility Storm is probably the greatest enemy of all to control players there is and it has little down side for your deck.

Karmic Guide is a useful angel and helps with removal problems and Angel of Serenity is good removal/recursion. If you prefer more protective measures there's Aegis Angel, Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Deathless Angel for in tribe options.

You may want to add more cards that cheat angels into play like Cryptic Gateway and Quicksilver Amulet to help the beat down come out faster, also has the bonus of being at instant speed.

I think you are better off skipping the voltron route as its kinda slow and instead aim for haste and extra combat effects like Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine), Combat Celebrant, Waves of Aggression and just crush your opponents quickly. If you go this route Crescendo of War and Archangel of Strife will make things very interesting.

With that in mind you may have better luck with Aurelia, the Warleader piloting the deck, I personally think the extra combat step is more valuable as your not geared to exploit pinging damage or burn spells with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. If you don't swap her out you should add Heartless Hidetsugu then and exploit that damage bonus.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty is more of a sideboard card in my opinion to start and even then I would only personally run it as a one-of there. The list you have here is very much somewhere between the decks I mentioned earlier, taking some things from martyr proc and some from B/W tokens. My first suggestion though is to drop the soul sisters plan. It may seem weird I know but personally I have always found it much too slow for modern and they likely don't sit around long anyway, in their place I would run 4x Martyr of Sands, 2x Cast Down, 1x Wrath of God, 1x Oblivion Ring, and 1x Damnation. This is also assuming Shalai gets moved to the side. Ajani's Pridemate can also go with this setup, in it's place 1x Timely Reinforcements, 1x Gideon of the Trials, and 2x Sorin, Solemn Visitor can come in. The plan should be to gain enough life quickly to beat down with ascendant but to that end have a ton of removal characteristic to midrange to help this plan.

As for the sideboard, it definitely needs work, one recommendation I have is Archangel Avacyn  Flip but bar that can I have a picture of your meta?

Welcome to the site!

By tradition, when we need help with a deck, we create a new "deck" in our profile. We itemize our cards so it's easier for players unfamiliar to hover over and know what they do. And when linking them, We use double brackets.

1 Avacyn, Angel of Hope 1 Archangel Avacyn  Flip 1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty 1 Iona, Shield of Emeria 1 Baneslayer Angel 1 Exalted Angel 1 Bruna, the Fading Light 1 Gisela, the Broken Blade 4 Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip 1 Cathedral Sanctifier

1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion

4 Devout Invocation 3 Entreat the Angels 1 Fragmentize

1 Murder Investigation 3 Anointed Procession 2 Secure the Wastes 1 White Sun's Zenith

2 Cobbled Wings 2 Darksteel Ingot 1 Gilded Lotus 1 Gauntlet of Power 1 Panoptic Mirror

1 Sandstone Bridge 24 Plains

Remember that deck building skill increases with blood alcohol content (but only if you're 21, otherwise stay away from the stuff).

clayperce on Martyr Proc w/ Resplendent Angel

4 weeks ago

I haven't tested Resplendent Angel so I can't speak to it but here are a few other thoughts:

  • 'Destroy' effects aren't great in my current meta, so I personally prefer Settle the Wreckage or Hallowed Burial over Cleansing Nova.
  • I go back-and-forth on Hex Parasite ... it's especially great vs. Planeswalkers, but Flash Angels seem just a little better to me lately
  • Speaking of which, I found Archangel Avacyn  Flip to be just a little too slow for my tastes (and that's with 25 Lands in my deck) . I moved to Restoration Angel recently and really like her. Coming in a turn earlier has been extremely relevant, and her ETB is great with a BUNCh of our cards.

Also, if you're not already aware of them, I highly recommend the Martyr group over on Facebook and the Martyr channel on Discord.

Draw well!


Paging cstick. I figured you'd probably have some thoughts here :-)

I thought the deck was funny, then I looked at the comment and lost my goddamn mind. I have no idea what PinkBoi was trying to say, but damn was it funny. Anyway, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker would be a perfect fit here to grab the fatty you want and pop it on top. You also might want to consider splashing white for Congregation at Dawn and/or Idyllic Tutor. Wurmcoil Engine and Worldspine Wurm are also fatties you could consider instead of Giant Adephage or Stormtide Leviathan. And since you're not planning on actually casting any of your fatties, you can run off color ones too - Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are the ones that jump to mind.

BMHKain on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

I'm back. I'll see where this will go from here...

I've been trying to find a Boros Commander that can Synergize with a Stax/Hatebear deck. Right now, I'm running Archangel Avacyn  Flip, but it seems to be more of a placeholder than something I can use. If anyone can help with this, I'll see if I can bring Boros to a new level of competitive nature, and by that, I mean Tier 2.5 or whatever. For now, I need help searching for a new commander...

@LabManiac_Dan Just gave your Twitter Account a tweet regarding what may also be a failure all the same.

Avacyn Burns All

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


After finding a lot of staples thanks to Lerker, I actually want to know how bad (Or at least, decent) this is. I'm using a Major Stax Theme. But what I really want to Know is: Should I run more mana Ramp besides rocks? And if so, what? & how do I make it so the combos affect me less than the opposition? Just a heads up in case Boros can be viable...

NOTE: Archangel Avacyn  Flip may not be the final choice of commander here; it's not Tier 3.
