Archangel Avacyn Discussion

+1 from me!
A question; Niblis of Frost its a tricky choice for me. It works for you? I have considered it in my deck (Draw-Go Spirits (Gameday winner)) but the lack of Flash disencouraged me. To keep 2 more mana open (to counter something or rattlechain a spirit), it would require 6 mana... Archangel Avacyn Flip seems more attractive - beside the tribal theme.
And my 2 cents:
I strongly suggest Dusk / Dawn. Its a sweeper that dont affect your creatures and it's a hand-refiller in late game; enjoy all the ETBs again!
For the SB, I suggest Glyph Keeper as an option against control (you can cast it for 5 and, if countered, Embalm - counter proof - for 7 later)

Thanks so much! Yeah I look forward to trying out a bunch of Deserts ... I have no idea how they're going to work out, but I'm excited to find out!
Geier Reach Sanitarium is interesting, but it seems kinda like Noose Constrictor: Great with The Gitrog Monster but kind of meh otherwise (because the deck is not generally looking for the discard effect). Thanks though!
Clip Wings is great, and I played it all the time when Emrakul, the Promised End was a thing. Right now though, my meta is chock-full of Temur Energy decks, where there's always a Thopter token to sac' instead of a Glorybringer. It may be exactly what the deck needs for HOU Standard though! Btw, Plummet works fine against Archangel Avacyn Flip ... well, as long as you have 1G available to hit her while the Indestructible trigger is on the stack.
Thank you again!

Man this is a really cool deck.
It seems well below your deck's level but Sunscorched Desert could be a hilarious way to ping out a few damage since you can sac and recur it lol. Um... aside from that... Geier Reach Sanitarium can draw you 2 cards if you pitch lands with Gitrog out, but the main seems real solid. Outside of the cards you've already covered in the deck description I don't see much that could be added til we know how the meta is going to turn out.
The only real suggestion I have is maybe replacing Plummet with Clip Wings in the side because the only flying threats I've faced recently are Heart of Kiran, Kefnet the Mindful, and on occasion; Archangel Avacyn Flip. Maybe go to 4 Appitites, and 2 Clip Wings if you ended up going that route? Idk. Honestly it all seems solid, just my 2 cents.

Heroic Intervention or Archangel Avacyn Flip due to the issue that we straight up lose to any Wrath of God effect without them.I'm more worried about Archfiend of Ifnir decks; so we need Solemnity as well.

Other than Tracker and Tamiyo, Field Researcher I don't see other needs for so much green. I think it would be better to focus more on a Azorius manabase and just splash green for Tracker and Tamiyo since they both only require a single green in their costs. I'm a huge fan of Sylvan Advocate, but being a two drop and wanting to be able to cast him turn two really messes up your manabase.
A primarily white with a blue and green splash manabase is better, this lets you play many double white casting cost cards which are the most powerful for your strategy.
Avacyn is one of the best tempo cards in Standard I would use her as a 4 of main deck. The same can be said about Gideon. The powerful curve of Queller into Gideon into Avacyn is what you're looking for.
You really want to play as much as you can at instant speed of course there are exceptions Gideon and Tracker, but they are both powerful enough that you don't mind tapping out for them. Bant colors allow you to play a lot at instant speed because of cycling. Censor and Cast Out are good tempo cards because of their instant cycling. Being able to cycle them for a draw if they aren't needed. I recommend you use a removal suite of Stasis and Cast main deck because of their instant speed and ability to hit any creature. Censor can slow down your opponent because they will not want to tap out for something without having an extra mana; they have to play around Censor or get punished for not. Declaration in Stone is fine in some matchups, Zombies, but I would put it in the sideboard and main deck instant removal in it's place.

Your best sideboard card is Fumigate because it's an actual board wipe and you will need it vs all the midrange that's now in Standard. Cataclysmic Gearhulk is not a good card because it gives your opponent choices. You want to be clearing the board with your board wipe not letting your opponent keep their best creature. Essence Scatter is also a good sideboard card right now because Standard is dominated by creatures.
Another card to consider for tempo is Baral's Expertise although not instant, being able to bounce up to three of your opponent's creatures and then play a Gideon or Tracker for free seems very good.
Good luck with your deck.

I always find statements that "this card is unplayable", without any explanation to back that up, hilarious.
It's often said about a card that is found to be strong, once people start brewing with it.
