Archangel of Thune Discussion
14 hours ago
Thanks a lot Bababad!!!Your recommendations are very useful. Archangel of Thune might be horrible to my opponents if I keep it on board. I already knew Rings of Brighthearth but did not thought about it when I built this deck. It can be very VERY strong indeed. I didn't know Rhox Faithmender and I think I'll put it in this deck (I just have to find something to put ouf it before lul. I'm not sure about using Sublime Archangel but I'll keep it in the sideboard to make some tests. You're right about Toxic Deluge. Yet, I don't have this deck anymore and I'll certainly not be able to buy every cards. Then, I think I will use Bontu's Last Reckoning (because I already have it) at the begining. However, I'll run Toxic Del later.Nim Deathmantle looks nice. I'll look at it.
Thanks again for your suggestion, it's really appreciated!

Seems like an extremely fun brew with a lot of synergy :)
Just have a few recommendations:
Rings of Brighthearth lets you double vona's removal without hemorrhaging too much life (you only pay the 7 original life and double the effect). Pricey, but just integrated it into my Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim edh deck and double exiling has been extremely satisfying
Archangel of Thune seems like it would help build up your army and your life buffer with ease. It just got reprinted so it finally has dropped in price.
Rhox Faithmender could provide a fat blocking butt early game and supplement your lifegain substantially
Sublime Archangel a pet card I try sneaking into most orzhov brews just because of how punchy and aggressive it is early/mid game.
Finally, Nim Deathmantle lets you utterly abuse your etb's (namely Sun Titan and Kokusho, the Evening Star) by essentially being a 1 card recursion engine, so long as you have the mana to use with it.

Anyone who has played this game for any significant duration will know that it can be very expensive, which directly contradicts its main purpose of being fun and entertaining.
Typically, WotC will make an effort to ensure that this game remains affordable by reprinting expensive cards, but I cannot help but wonder if they occasionally deliberately do not reprint cards to keep them expensive, despite such a tactic being very unprofitable for them.
One of the best-known and most infamous examples of this idea is Damnation which because very expensive due to not being reprinted for so long, despite there being many excellent opportunities for it to be so (most notably From the Vault: Annihilation). Other examples are Rhystic Study and Privileged Position, both of which are far more expensive than they should be, in my mind. Also, WotC has never reprinted the "filter lands" from the Shadowmoor block in a normal set and reprinted the "shock lands" from Ravnica only once, despite those lands being some of the best in the game and always desired by fans, making them terribly expensive. Yet another example is that both Kalonian Hydra and Ghave, Guru of Spores were reprinted in Atraxa's deck in Commander 2016, but Archangel of Thune was not, despite the fact that she would have been perfect for that deck, not was she reprinted in From the Vault: Angels, where she also would have been perfect, but she was reprinted in Iconic Masters, however, so that is a rare instance of WotC actually reprinting an expensive card. They also did reprint both Doubling Season and Bitterblossom, but those cards are still far too expensive, so they definitely need further reprints, in my mind.
What does everyone else say about this? Do you believe that WotC ever deliberately withholds reprinting cards to keep them expensive?

Very cool commander idea.
It might also be fun to test with Cathars' Crusade.
If you swap in some more lifelink creatures and develop a lifr-gain sub-theme, Archangel of Thune would be bonkers with all your tokens.
Have fun brewing!

@ OTPHJ: Which commander deck of yours are you referring to?
As far as this deck goes, the most dangerous cards have been my commander, Chandra's Ignition, Sanguine Bond, Serra Ascendant, Archangel of Thune, Bloodchief Ascension, the Theros gods, and my equipment.

Thank you for the compliments and suggestions! Currently Archangel of Thune and Deathbringer Liege are a bit out of my price range, but they're definitely on my radar if they ever drop in price! I'm leaning towards a few life generators that can activate many times based on tokens and sacrificing, but if that plan ends up not working, I'll definitely keep cards like Divinity of Pride in mind.
