Hey, good first version, nice Avacyn, Angel of Hope :)

29 lands is unfortunately not enough land especially since Tariel is seven mana... The priority for deck changes to consider is to add more lands and add more ramp. I recommend 38 lands and 5 more additional mana sources. You don't just need more lands for Tariel you need them to be able to consistently play the other Angels in your deck since many of them have high mana costs.

Budget cards ($3 or less each, most are $1 each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angel's Feather
  • Scroll of Avacyn
  • Pious Interdiction
  • Angelic Gift
  • Increasing Devotion
  • Syndicate Guildmage
  • Cathar's Companion
  • Angelic Wall
  • Ritual of Rejuvenation
  • Flameblade Angel
  • Angel of Renewal
  • Teyo, the Shieldmage
  • Kaya, Bane of the Dead
  • Replenish

Replenish is an amazing expensive price card, it's great you have it, but it's not doing much here because there's only seven enchantments. Because you have Replenish you should consider building an enchantment matters deck with lots of enchantments.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start, well made first version.

I think it's a mistake to play more Forests and Islands than Swamps because you need Swamps more than any other lands to play Zombies. Consider less Forests, less Islands replacing with more Swamps and dual lands? Lands within the deck's budget to consider adding:

Undead Augur and Cryptbreaker are great tribal Zombie cards. I especially like the interaction of these Zombies with Gravecrawler . Cryptbreaker is an engine for Zombie tribal which is busted for a one drop. Carrion Feeder is another one drop Zombie who has good interaction with Gravecrawler and Augur. Plague Belcher has a good Zombie tribal ability. Wonder is powerful when you have discard outlets, good with Island dual lands (Watery, Breeding, Sunken and Fetid). Buried Alive can tutor for Gravecrawler and Wonder and put them into your graveyard. Having another way to tutor for Gravecrawler and other Zombies and get them into the graveyard is helpful to play them with Muldrotha. Deathrite Shaman is not a Zombie, but its a great versatile card in multiplayer Commander. Mystic Remora and Animate Dead are excellent cards to replay with Muldrotha.

Some cards that are within the deck's budget that are upgrades:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 4x Forest
  • 4x Island
  • Rampant Growth
  • Murder
  • Razaketh's Rite
  • Diabolic Tutor
  • Gilded Lotus
  • Liliana, Untouched By Death
  • Risen Executioner
  • Soulless One
  • Curse of the Bloody Tome
  • Dread Summons
  • Graf Harvest
  • Kindred Dominance
  • Havengul Lich
  • Noosegraf Mob
  • Kodama's Reach

Consider cutting Ashnod's Altar , Altar of Dementia and Door of Destinies to clear enough price to add Phyrexian Altar ? Because of having Gravecrawler then Phyrexian Altar is a big upgrade since it can make colored mana which can combo with Gravecrawler and another Zombie. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget version of Feather :)

Consider a few more budget mana sources: Battlefield Forge , Talisman of Conviction , Jeweled Amulet , Opal Palace , Ash Barrens ? Young Pyromancer and Guttersnipe are budget creatures who can take advantage of casting so many instant/sorcery spells. It's helpful that you don't have to target either of these creatures to get value. Fists of Flame is a good instant pump and draw spell. The +3 power pump and scry 1 of Titan's Strength makes it a good instant spell for one mana.

Twinflame can trigger Feather and is a game winning infinite combo with Dualcaster Mage resulting in infinite attacking Dualcasters for five mana, . Generous Gift is a powerful instant white removal spell. You can even target your own creature/token to trigger Feather and create a 3/3 Elephant. Swords to Plowshares is a budget staple white removal spell in Commander and even though it doesn't have interaction with Feather it's too efficient for one mana not to play.


If you're interested in adding some of these card suggestions then cards to consider cutting are basic lands. The avg. CMC of your deck is 2.1 which is very good with Feather. With this low of an avg. CMC you don't need 41 lands, that's overkill. I recommend 36 lands max for your current deck. Other cards to consider cutting:

  • Abzan Advantage: bolster doesn't target a creature you choose one.
  • Justiciar's Portal
  • Aerial Maneuver
  • Pressure Point
  • Zealous Strike
  • Crash Through
  • Bolt Bend

Good luck with your deck.

@skroes: No need to fret. It's either Ash Barrens , or Fiery Islet ; both enter play untapped, or would Prismatic Vista or something be any better? Already deciding on the Islet though...

@skroes: Odd. That actually taps when online. Not that it matters anyways, I ponder as to if Ash Barrens is a good alt here...
