Archangel of Thune Discussion
17 hours ago
thegeekvapor not a problem. There's only one catch to all of this, if you want to improve your deck it will cost you some money. But It will definiteley help you win or atleast control some games. Intangible Virtue Isn't all that bad, but I'd rather suggest Brave the Sands as it let's you block an extra creature. You can pump up your creatures later with Archangel of Thune and let em fly by using Abzan Falconer

Yes, Archangel of Thune will trigger from the life gained from Soul's Attendant when it enters the battlefield and give all creatures you control, including itself, a +1/+1 counter each. Terminology note: Counters, such as +1/+1 counters, are placed on permanents (and players, and occasionally cards in other zones), tokens are permanents that are not represented by actual cards (such as saproling tokens).

Yes. Soul's Attendant has an "enters the battlefield" trigger, meaning that for it to trigger Archangel of Thune must be on the battlefield. When Soul's Attendant's trigger resolves you will gain a life, and Archangel of Thune will trigger, putting +1/+1 counters on your creatures.
Just remember, whenever you see "when ... enters the battlefield" that means whatever triggered it has entered the battlefield, so it's there for the purposes of any interaction that follows.

There is always Forced Adaptation, which makes any of your creatures grow each turn. Combo it with Hardened Scales and you passively get huge. Use Managorger Hydra as a bane against your opponent playing spells. That should do the trick.
Alternatively, in white you have access to Citadel Siege.

Are any of the degenerate combos cat tribal specific. I'm trying to find some cat-centric combos for my Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH Deck but haven't found anything good yet.
All I've been able to come-up with so far, but are really janky are:
Temur Sabertooth + Karametra's Acolyte + Swiftfoot Boots + 4 Devotion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or + 1 Devotion Infinite Mana. No clue what I would do with this mana even if I made it.
Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens. Who doesn't love 4-card combos that involve 2 cats to make 1/1 warriors that don't even have haste. On the plus side Oketra's Monument looks cat-ish.
Aluren + Fleetfoot Panther or Whitemane Lion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Aluren terrifies me, none of the cats are ultimately good on their own either.
Changeling Hero + Changeling Titan | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. They may not look like cats but they are... I guess.
Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring or Journey to Nowhere + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark + Greater Good | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Soon as you say Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark which is Saffi Eriksdotter so why would I waste time with Cats.
If you have anything please let me know!
Whats your Tooth and Nail combo, any cats?
Any help very much appreciated.

This deck doesn't stand in the current modern metagame, and I am concerned with the amount of people saying otherwise.
The deck runs a 9 mana do nothing (Reya Dawnbringer) and Archangel of Thune with nearly no lifegain. Restoration Angel is being run without Blade Splicer nor Siege Rhino, and it can't get it's legs off the ground before turn 4. Be that point control will have wiped your field and will present win with countermagic against your lategame, aggro would have won, and combo will have won that turn or the turn prior. Midrange decks will have shredded your hand with Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, and be presenting efficient threats while you wait to rebuild.
If you want this deck to be better, I suggest building a deck that isn't a normal midrange, control, aggro, or combo build. Death and Taxes is the style of deck you want.
The deck runs small and efficient beaters that it cheats out with Aether Vial to shut down the opponent.
Against control? nice try Supreme Verdict, Gaddock Teeg has you beat, fast paced weenies will outpace or at least generally nor get shut off by Thoughtseize. Aggro has to get past Kitchen Finks and Blade Splicer tokens. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben can help in that deck as well.
I'll go build of a list for GW death and taxes. This deck isn't far from it, Noble Hierarch instead of Avacyn's Pilgrim, and other small changes, 4x Flickerwisp and probably only 1-2xRestoration Angel, etc.

Thanks for the comment TzickyT.
He's a 3/2 for CMC3, so he's decently in scale. He is not a cat, so can't use the Eminence with him. He does have built-in recursion. In my build, he only has 10 targets (that's pretty low), but Lost Leonin, Puresteel Paladin, Qasali Pridemage, Swiftfoot Boots, Sylvan Library, Umezawa's Jitte all pretty high value targets.
Because he's not a cat, and because he doesn't have enough targets (10), I wouldn't run him in this deck, plus I think he is built for being abused (which I like, but is not the goal of this build).
If you want to build around him, I think he would be great.
Can't think of anyone else off the top of my head he combos with, but:
Another tool in the Saffi Eriksdotter combo wheelhouse. I'm testing Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters of which neither are Cats, so really bothers me. It plays on my Life gain Sub-Theme, but it's still not right.
I've worked out a couple combos with Cats, but nothing really concrete yet. Renegade Rallier is a bit too far away from my goal, but a pretty amazing guy, I like him. He feels more Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or Karametra, God of Harvests or 100% Saffi Eriksdotter to me. It's easily tutorable combo in . With a Greater Good can tutor for the Blasting Station or whatever damage outlet you need.
If you decide to run him, I would build some synergy around him with a recursive sub-theme.
