Tajik and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice have Mentor. But they are by no means stuck in this deck if I can find something better to replace them. I don't love one-drops...

Good start, I'd focus on getting some better ramp/fixing, because casting him will be difficult. Smothering Tithe is the obvious choice, but here's what isn't obvious:

Since he costs 4 cmc, 2 cmc mana rocks are critically important to get him out turn 3. Arcane Signet , Star Compass (if you keep the number of basics where it is, Fellwar Stone , Dockside Extortionist , Knight of the White Orchid , Wayfarer's Bauble , Talisman of Conviction , Myriad Landscape (doesn't help you ramp him but helps fixing). I'd run Chromatic Lantern over Boros locket or cluestone.

Otherwise keep looking for cheap anthems and haste enablers, and be careful with things that probably can't target him like Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice .

Hey there Esbilon,

Thanks for your upvote, comment and compliment. I honestly think the best idea about deck-building sites like Tapped Out is the ability to share ideas on decks you wouldn't have otherwise discovered, and gain priceless feedback from other players.

While I agree that Red can be too greedy at times, I think it adds a lot to the deck. I personally think that Red is to invaluable to drop, with cards such as Deafening Clarion and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , not to mention the two three-mana Domris.

I agree with you on Game Trail and Fortified Village , if only I had remembered about them when I ordered the cards I needed for this deck. I'll see if I can get them from my LGS.

I'm still on the fence between Paradise Druid and Sylvan Caryatid . I really need to playtest this deck more before I make a decision.

I like your idea of Single Combat . The only problem is, against aggro, I'll most likely want to have Deafening Clarion as it costs 2 less and gives my remaining guys lifelink.

Regarding your suggestions on fight/bite effects, do you still think that Scorching Dragonfire is still a good choice mainboard vs decks like Phoenix and Dredgeless Dredge, or should I replace it with Thrash / Threat ?

Thanks for your help and continued input,


Hey CrowValentine,

Thanks for your continued support and help, I really appreciate it.

As I said before, I'm still on the fence on Paradise Druid and Sylvan Caryatid .

I think Red provides more than fight/bite effects, so I won't be taking it out.

Thanks again,

Hey there!

I was looking through the Pioneer decks when I saw your deck. Having just made an Angel deck for Pioneer myself, I was very interested in seeing another one to compare.

What are your thoughts being just mono-white? Have you considered using some other colours (Red, for Angels such as Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and Green for ramp and card draw and selection)?

Also, what are your thoughts on Knight of the White Orchid ? It could come in very handy if you are going second or you've missed a land drop, but if you're going first, then I just think it's kind of a dead card, as it has no tribal synergies.

What are your thoughts on Anointed Procession in Angel decks?

Thanks for your help,

That's fair. Maybe keep 3x of both Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and Embercleave ? Idk, just ideas.

On second thought I think maybe dropping down to 2 copies of Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and including the final copy of Embercleave will be best. In many cases Embercleave actually will end up being less mana to play and provide a similar impact that the angel does.

Play tested it and did not too well. most notability facing Red/Blue decks with Improbable Alliance , Irencrag Pyromancer , and The Royal Scions as Irencrag Pyromancer can easily block all my non-buffed attacks and kill next turn via second card ability trigger. Giant Killer can tap her (adventure totally useless in this case) but as soon a second Irencrag Pyromancer is on the field hes a goner. maybe a forth Giant Killer could work as an extra in the sideboard?

For sideboard I would highly recommend Lava Coil for removal of Irencrag Pyromancer . And Disenchant at Improbable Alliance to shut down such decks.

I would also recommend Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice just to buff any non- Tenth District Legionnaire creatures and for the mentor ability for white only creatures if forced to use those.
