Archon of Valor's Reach Discussion

Archon of Valor's Reach is a 6 drop that doesn't win you the game if you are going to cut anything for Prime Speaker Vannifar , thats what I would cut unless the archon really does so much work that you are willing to go up the chain hardcore and grab it. In that case I guess you wouldn't want to cut a pay off for an engine.

Personally I always like to have a way to protect my strategy against interaction. How much is purely based on who you play with but having options like Heroic Intervention , Selfless Spirit , and Teferi's Protection can put you ahead when people wrath. Finding effects like this for all permanents especially enchantments would be ideal but these are some of the first ones I found. I am about to just lay out some potential additions that if you feel you like them feel free to swap cards you are finding to not work out for. There are quite a few suggestions so I would just go by category. Generally a good way to cut cards would be to ask yourself if a card is over 5 mana is it doing something that good or worth it and if it is over 7 is it winning you the game. Some of the card recommendations are just improved cards of what you already have that are a little less narrow. Hope this helps at least some and sorry for the long comment. I would personally make these changes to make it a little more streamlined:

Remove some of these cards: 1x Krond the Dawn-Clad, 1x Enchantress's Presence, 1x Dictate of Heliod, 1x Spidersilk Armor, 1x Journey to Nowhere, 1x Pacifism, 1x Seal Away, 1x Bow of Nylea, 1x Mine Excavation, 1x Approach of the second sun

Replace with some of these cards: some mana ramp that is also an enchantment would work pretty well as well ( Fertile Ground , Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , etc)

Removal (personally I don't like removal that is situational even if it is an enchantment like seal away and pacifism sometimes doesn't hit what you need to remove. Adding cards like Banishing Light allows you to target anything you want including planeswalkers.): Swords to Plowshares , Cast Out , Banishing Light , Grasp of Fate , Aura of Silence , Archon of Valor's Reach , Karmic Justice , Conclave Tribunal , Darksteel Mutation

Cards advantage and recursion:: Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip (seems okay), Beast Whisperer , Vizier of the Menagerie , Krosan Grip , Beast Within , Panharmonicon , Sun Titan , Eternal Witness , Open the Vaults

Miscellaneous (other okay adds that I like): Rancor 1 mana enchantment can draw you cards and returns from the graveyard worst case, Snake Umbra creature protection and card draw on one card

Expensive additionas but would all probably be pretty good additions:: Aura Shards , Craterhoof Behemoth , Oracle of Mul Daya , Replenish , Sylvan Library

Thanks for the feedback Naetus! I think Archon of Valor's Reach would generate too much hate and it hinders me as well as my opponents. And Lena, Selfless Champion can't even protect our commander so I don't know why I would run it over over a draw engine like Prime Speaker Zegana or recursion like Greenwarden of Murasa

Beast Whisperer is a solid idea though, doesn't have an ETB but has value.

What about Archon of Valor's Reach for the Memnarch deck naming artifacts lol. Of those 3 I like Dragonlord Dromoka the most.

@Killzun, comment# 13, You know I just thought that I should run both Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile because I would lose to a Archon of Valor's Reach that names enchantments

I'd start by looking at these creatures: Archon of Valor's Reach, Celestial Ancient, Daxos of Meletis, Elderwood Scion, Emeria Shepherd, Hydra Omnivore, Loyal Drake, Loyal Guardian, Nylea's Colossus.

Then I'd look at your auras, you probably don't need a ton to get a lot of value from your commander: Empyrial Storm, Phyrexian Rebirth, Angelic Chorus, Epic Proportions, Ground Seal, Myth Unbound, Octopus Umbra, Spawning Grounds, Vow of Flight.

Seems that the ultimate lock would require to block sorceries (and maybe instants). Archon of Valor's Reach does provide exactly that.
