Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

ibstudent2200 on One Scrappy Chap: Daretti EDH

1 day ago

If you need ways to win once you go infinite, I recommend Shivan Gorge. It doesn't cost you a nonland slot, and there is at least one way to deal infinite damage using cards in your list and Gorge. You don't run Ruination, so you aren't really losing much by adding another nonbasic.

Personally, I prefer Starstorm to Comet Storm for instants, but if you need a win condition, Comet Storm technically works.

I wasn't saying that you cut Darksteel Forge, Nevinyrral's Disk, or Mycosynth Lattice. I was just pointing out that your explanations for why you included Disk and Lattice don't emphasize that the core combo is Forge + Disk, and that adding Lattice just lets you blow up lands.

Your argument about having enough tutoring is...sketchy. You have 4 tutors in deck, one of which is Kuldotha Forgemaster. It depends on the deck, but Forgemaster is often best categorized as part of an N-card combo rather than a tutor, where N is the number of other artifacts of any sort you need to control when you untap with Forgemaster in order to immediately go infinite (I think N = 6 is sufficient to find Forge + Disk for your list, and N = 7 finds an arbitrary number of artifacts if you add Nim Deathmantle). The card-drawing component of your argument is more difficult to compute, though you definitely have enough card draw to make my traditional numbers* inapplicable to your deck, but the threshold for seeing enough cards to consistently assemble a 3-card combo is really high.

I'd also contest your claim that Lattice is an essential component of any Daretti deck. My experience with Daretti has been that you're rarely short on artifacts to sacrifice, and color fixing is rarely an issue in a mono-color deck, so Mycosynth Lattice's main purpose is for combos. The main cards that combo with lattice include:

  • Forge: Avacyn, Angel of Hope is good, even when it's a 2-card combo.
  • Forge + Disk: this combo is already backbreaking even without Lattice.
  • Karn, Silver Golem: this combo is gross. It's less mana-efficient than something like Decree of Annihilation or Boom/Bust, but being one-sided and repeatable counts for a lot.
  • Clock of Omens / Unwinding Clock: Given that you have some big activated ability payoffs, these are definitely strong.
  • Voltaic Key/Clock of Omens/Unwinding Clock + Goblin Welder: These cards just happen to work together extremely well.
  • Vandalblast: this is gross, and you already want Vandalblast in your deck.
  • Quicksmith Genius: This is a card that always fails to make the cut for me (I skip from 2 mana to 4 mana about 70%-80% of the time in my Daretti list, which places 3-drops in a weird spot in my curve), so I don't have a good sense for whether triggering the Genius whenever you play a land is very good.
  • Inventors' Fair: If Lattice onboard makes a difference in whether you can take advantage of Inventors' Fair, something has gone horribly awry.

So by my count, you have about 6 cards that work well with Lattice, and 2 that work against it (All Is Dust does literally nothing with Lattice onboard). Given that you have incidental combos like Goblin Welder+untapper shenanigans, I think it's best to view Lattice as a card that combos with 6 cards in your deck, but does very little on its own. Whether that is above or below your threshold for usefulness is up to you.

*My traditional numbers: If Card A does nothing on its own but combos with other cards, you want at least 10 tutors and/or synergistic cards for Card A to be consistently useful.

i love enchantments and playing my Anafenza The Enchantress EDH Deck stil i am having some troubles with understanding your cursed enchantress deck. looks fun but tarrifieing at the same time. stil i feel like some things can be added and some things can go away. but for a first look this deck at my locals wouldn't survive a single turn. as for the deck u want to play as much enchantments as possible. so the money of lands wil also be of big estimation for the deck. cards i would suggest to put out are - Agent of Erebos Femeref Enchantress Kor Spiritdancer Ulvenwald Hydra i would for creatures add definitly these to your deck Herald of the Pantheon Sun Titan Avacyn, Angel of Hope Auramancer and to slot it out i would also maybe suggest this enchantment Maelstrom Nexus

Hey,

did you consider these cards:

dlamars on Ayli reflects, Boon or Wound?

hoardofnotions well Defiant Bloodlord is definitely not worth his cmc but he is easily cheated in using Reanimate, Animate Dead or Necromancy and is one of 3 wincons. The bloodlord or Avacyn, Angel of Hope are typically the target for Entomb depending on the table and your hand.

Cliffhaven Vampire may go back in later, the problem is he only wins the game if I have a infinite combo out and in that case Blood Artist is probably better.

I like the commander, love the vampire theme. I just don't understand how the deck is supposed to win in a multiplayer format. Ultimately this all comes down to your playgroup and how competitive the deck is, what the meta is, all that good stuff. Most vampire decks to date have done Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond / Defiant Bloodlord. Or stealing opponents stuff with Olivia Voldaren in the late game. Or even Vampire Hexmage + Dark Depths. In my experience, very rarely are you going to be able to overwhelm all of your opponents with vampires that have had time to grow and get fat. Heavy creature decks that also generate tokens are huge Wrath of God magnets.

You may want to consider some more removal if you plan on keeping the win condition brute force: Merciless Eviction, Austere Command, Tempest of Light, Utter End, Oblation, Red Elemental Blast, Grave Pact, whatever. Otherwise, you fall victim to a huge variety of defensive measures: Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Copy Enchantment, Moat, Crawlspace, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, No Mercy, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, etc.

Finally, it's hard for me to say what I would cut without knowing your meta, but I'll give it a go: Confusion in the Ranks, Harsh Mercy, Insolent Neonate, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Attrition, Urge to Feed. These cards are either too finite, or have circumstantial value. Other than that, I challenge you to look at your creature base, I know you want to get a lot of value out of Edgar Markov but the creatures themselves need to bring a lot to the table too.

I run a similar list including anya in the 99 but with tajic at the helm.

Due to her indestructible nature and access to stuff like Boros Charm Frontline Medic Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Iroas, God of Victory, i would recommend running powerful spells that indestructible creatures like anya, see my list for reference, but a ton of spells exist that anya survives but everything else wont

Martial Coup

Anger of the Gods

Hour of Revelation

Jokulhaups

Devastation

Kirtar's Wrath

Obliterate

Akroma's Vengeance

Blasphemous Act

Wrath of God

Razia's Purification

Cataclysm

Worldslayer

Armageddon

Also, your lack of tutors is disturbing :/

Stonehewer Giant

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Gamble

Enlightened Tutor

Idyllic Tutor

Open the Armory

As far as artifact theme, you're missing a few key cards

Darksteel Forge

Without this, a single Vandalblast neuters your game plan

Sunforger

not just flavor, this card allows you to run a "toolbox" of 1-4 cmc instants, some i run in tajic are

Comeuppance

Oblation

Chaos Warp

Master Warcraft

Deflecting Palm

Swords to Plowshares

Nim Deathmantle***

Creatures constantly being destroyed? Fear not. Leave 4 mana open and anya and friends will NEVER die, it also abuses etb effects like Godo, Bandit Warlord

Also Reality Shift is a really sweet piece of creature removal considering it's ... because no-one likes to sit on the business-end of Avacyn, Angel of Hope
