Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice Discussion

Hexaflexagon on Monowhite Angel - (Maybe Add Green)

I would suggest one of two options:

  • The first, as someone has suggested, is to make this deck into a commander or (as you've already done) a casual deck.

  • The second, which I'm going to talk about a bit more is trying to make this deck into a Standard deck. Currently in Standard, Angels are actually a good tribe, with cards like Lyra Dawnbringer , Resplendent Angel , Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , and the upcoming Seraph of the Scales . Even though the two most powerful Angels IMO in Standard are rotating out in Q4 of this year, it's still a long way to go before the time comes. The good thing about making this deck into Standard is that Standard is a more popular format, making you more likely to get into an event, and you have most of the important pieces already (Lyra, Shalai, Resplendent, Sunpetal Grove ). If you are interested in making this deck a Standard deck, I could possibly draft some decklists for you (taking into account things such as budget, etc) as I have loads of free time because it's the school holidays. If you are going this route, there are some of my Angel decks that you might want to check out for inspiration:

Selesnya Standard Midrange

Standard* Hexaflexagon


Descend Upon the Sinful - Abzan Edition

Standard* Hexaflexagon


Good Luck!

Font of Agonies for the side board to go with Adanto Vanguard and Midnight Reaper? Doom Whisperer could also a nice substitute for Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice if its worth the higher CMC.

I've been playing around with Boros angels in MTG Arena and have found that going for the aggro plan works fairly well against other fast or midrange style decks since you have speed coupled with the survivability of lifegain. However, the deck really suffers against control since the removal of early threats limits the amount of pressure you can exert. Boros has it especially rough since you'll tend to run out of cards as the game drags on.

For the first problem, I've found Adanto Vanguard to be a Godsend. It's an enormous threat like some other 2 drops but it's much harder to dislodge. My win rate rose a lot after switching a playset in. There's a bit of a nonbo with Vanguard and mentor triggers, but I still think it's worth inclusion in at least the side. Finding effective card advantage sources has been much more difficult. I'm currently using Mentor of the Meek since it can be triggered by most Boros weenies and even Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice. Other options like Dawn of Hope, Arcane Encyclopedia, and Sarkhan, Fireblood just don't seem to fit into the archetype. If you have any ideas, let me know.

Since you're only using blue for Divination and Opt, I don't think it's worth it. I'd go in a green or red direction instead, more in line with more traditional Selesnya or Boros Angels decks. Green gives you access to ramp (Llanowar Elves) which can be very important and lets you activate Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Red has Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and a lot of good removal, plus Banefire which is an excellent in the control matchup. Plus, both of those already have their shock lands (Temple Garden and Sacred Foundry), so the mana base is better. Here's a recent take on Boros Angels:

I would take out Wall of Omens to put in 3 more Lyra and 1 more Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice as you need to upgrade the consistency of the deck for it to the viable in Modern.

Excited to see what changes you make to the deck, Enral! I think Swiftblade Vindicator is pretty great; I tried him over Grand Abolisher for a while. I personally was having trouble with vigilance and dealing with flying attackers. Reconnaissance and Brave the Sands were very useful, and the latter was bonkers with tokens in play. Serra Ascendant and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice put in a lot of work for me as well.
