Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

triproberts12 Lyra, once I can afford her, will be in the deck. Using her as commander is intriguing. I haven't updated the deck yet, but I was thinking of using Radiant, Archangel as commander over Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

dragonforce60 I was actually just looking into Fumigate . I do have a Terminus that I could add as well. I'm just stuck on what to take out for it. [Resolute Archangel] is going to be added to the deck when I get a chance to update it. I think I have Angel of Invention , I think I skipped over the life link part. Do I have enough Humans to make Angelic Overseer work to her full potential? I don't know. Worth looking into, but Aegis Angel would be the better of the two, wouldn't they?

Hey Zerraphon, nice you liking the idea! Well you want the protection pieces i got in there. I am playing in a meta where removal is not the focus of a lot of decks but there are some nasty things that from time to time fly around. It helps a lot having Avacyn, Angel of Hope and her little sister Deathless Angel around. Same goes for Teferi's Protection which you can also replace, if it is not in your budget, think Boros Charm is a nice addition. The black pieces i got in this deck are mostly supportive and you don't really need black. Most of your draw can be done from blue anyways and recursion is decent in white. Make sure you got Bruna, the Fading Light in there, i replaced her with Phyrexian Reclamation cause it is just cheaper. The only thing you lose from not having black is some decent removal in form of [Utter End] and potentially Merciless Eviction (did put that into my licia deck thats why it is not in this deck). The other way you profit from red. I think you should really put stuff in that gives Haste ( Fires of Yavimaya Dragon Tempest ) and so on. Doublestrike should also be a higher priority if you have red. Think if you build around KT you need to try out how the ramp and draw from the commander plays out. This deck is build around ramping early, thats why there are 13 pieces, but also tuned to not heavily have to rely on your ramp spells. If you get to 4-5 Lands you are mostly good to go and the deck functions. It is a slower mid range control deck and red should probably accelerate this a little bit, cause you can give your creatures haste. I think thats why you probably dont need that much protection spells, cause you can prepare your turns in your hand because of haste. This deck has to protect the board state over several turns, cause of the +1/+1 counter theme that is the shell for the Angel Tribal. I just suggest you to find a shell for your ladies and awesome Angels and go from there. Doublestrike beatdown would be one thing to consider. After that, play test a lot. It takes a lot of time to refine how many cards you need for your strategy and how many you can devote to other stuff. Would also suggest to think about a second win condition that doesn't resolve around combat damage. I took in the Debt to the Deathless that allows me to close out games that otherwise are unwinable. I think you got a lot of stuff in red like Chandra's Ignition and so on. Have fun building! If you have any questions towards which Angels to include (cause i know it is hard to cut them) just ask!

You could mention that cEDH is almost exclusively dominated by stax and combo. (under power levels)

Is, while mandatory for mill, not the ONLY color combo. The Mimeoplasm mill is a deck my casual side takes great joy in playing. (under subtheme)

Note Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Nevinyrral's Disk under Wraths. (under subtheme)

Azami, Lady of Scrolls - you forgot the last S. (under commander)

"Combo is generally the best win condition." Not true. It's definitely the easiest, but the 'best' is a matter of opinion. (under the aggro problem)

Thrasios, Triton Hero - you forgot the first H. (under the colors)

Umbra Mystic is a HUGE white enchantment payoff. (under the colors)

I didn't know it was possible to mention blue draw without talking about Rhystic Study .

Combat Celebrant doesn't combo. It can only exert itself if it hasn't that turn.

Reins of the Vinesteed - you missed the third E- the first E in Vinesteed. (under the colors)

I'd take Journey to Nowhere over Pacifism , there are a lot of creatures who hurt you just by being on the battlefield without attacking or blocking anyone. Luminarch Ascension seems like a card that's good in multiplayer where you have a lot of opponents' end phases for it to trigger in and a propensity for stale mates, so if you're playing that way a lot it's a good card. In normal matchups, though, I don't see it doing much for you. Instead of Ghostly Prison , I'd bring in Archangel of Tithes , she's a bit more expensive for you and not as expensive for your opponent, but she's more versatile and comes with a 3/5 body which can really do wonders.

Darksteel Citadel doesn't seem to do a whole lot of good for you, and the occasional life-gain from Seraph Sanctuary is really also something you need to have a payoff for for it to be worth it. Maybe just get some extra plains, or you could get Eiganjo Castle or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers . You also seem to have rather more forests than I'd really recommend, but good dual lands are expensive, so I get you :) If you can afford them, I recommend Temple Garden , Horizon Canopy , Windswept Heath , Razorverge Thicket and Wooded Bastion .

Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems way too expensive, I'd get Birds of Paradise or more Noble Hierarch s if you can afford it, otherwise Avacyn's Pilgrim , Beastcaller Savant or Bloom Tender can do good work too. I'm also not sure what Kytheon's Irregulars ' role in your deck is, again let me recommend Archangel of Tithes , or alternatively Angel of Jubilation , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , or Indomitable Archangel or Gisela, the Broken Blade . Baneslayer Angel is a fine card, but unless you're facing demons and dragons regularly, Lyra Dawnbringer is probably better. Her ability to be a lord for other angels is really nice.

Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are super powerful bombs, but I'm not sure you have enough ramp to play them consistently. Of course, you know your local meta better than I do, so you be the judge of that yourself :) I'd recommend thinking about dropping them, though.

And last, a shameless plug. I've been playing with an angel deck of my own at my local FNM and been doing OK, it's been mono-white, white-green-red and is now just white-green. You can check the latest iteration here if you're looking for a somewhat different take on this whole business: Noble Angels

No problem CoolMemeDude

Mayael is a super fun deck, you should definitely add in a Avacyn, Angel of Hope if she isn't too costly. If ya need any help feel free to notify me!

Yo My first EDH Deck was also dinos. It is a lot of fun.

You should check out my deck list. Dino Swarm. Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Forerunner of the Empire, Polyraptor, and Silverclad Ferocidons makes for a game ending combo! lol

Very interesting take. I've always wanted to build her and looked at different techs. I went for a human tribal deck here on tappedout but never ended up building the deck. I'll keep an eye on this list. Maybe you could keep us posted on how it performed as well.

I'm unsure how well it is able to win, just for some extra redundancy you might consider adding Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. If you like to try extra combat phases consider Aurelia, the Warleader and Scourge of the Throne. Things like Beastmaster Ascension, Triumph of the Hordes, Overwhelming Stampede and obviously Craterhoof Behemoth can provide instant wins. For ramp I would consider Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways. True Conviction and Avacyn, Angel of Hope might also be considered.

SynergyBuild on What Card Should I Put ...

As I am told to do by my overlords, Captain Sisay is the commander you want for all of your EDH decks. It can find Gaddock Teeg, Trostani Discordant, Karametra, God of Harvests, Chorus of the Conclave, Paradox Engine (for an instant win with Mox Amber, Mox Opal, Seton, Krosan Protector, and then line up any win of three drops like Bow of Nylea, Bontu's Monument, and Mikaeus, the Lunarch) and Dragonlord Dromoka, as well as many other good utility cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope, other tutors like Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Inventors' Fair, etc. and removal like Urza's Ruinous Blast, Mangara of Corondor, and many other great inclusions.

For example, it can fetch any walker, many legendary lands, protection for itself like Hammer of Nazahn, fun wincons like Helm of the Host, etc.
