My friend is like your friend- has one modern deck and it is angels. Wont build anything else.
So, after playing a few games with my friend against his vampire tribal deck, I learned that getting Nythos really helps the deck. We played three games real quick to test the deck out.Game One:I Journey to Nowhere 'd his Vampire Nighthawk , dropped Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Angel of Jubilation and a few other spells. That allowed me to ramp into Akroma, Angel of Wrath and the game spiraled from there. Serra Angel was tossed in there somewhere, and I managed to get enough devotion to white to cast Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Day of Judgment in the next turn. That ended the game.
Game Two:This game actually went very poorly. I got Thran Dynamo out on turn 4, but very little ramp, no board wipes, and my opponent getting out a Nykthos very early and flooding the field with vampires really ruined the game. He got out both an Olivia Voldaren and a Captivating Vampire , and it became impossible for me to hold onto creatures. After a few turns back and forth of me dropping some angels and having them stolen, he won pretty solidly.
Game Three:This game went by in no time at all. I was on the play and dropped a Sol Ring off of a plains, and then Lightning Greaves off of the ring. Turn two, Urza's Incubator calling angels. His turn 2, he dropped a Bloodghast . Turn three, I cast Guardian Seraph , equipped the greaves and swung in for 3. His turn, he dropped a Bloodline Keeper Flip and swung in with Bloodghast again. My turn 4, I dropped Light from Within and swung for 5, he blocked with the Bloodline Keeper Flip . After nothing meaningful on my opponents turn, I dropped Avacyn, Angel of Hope equipped her with the greaves, and swung in for 16. In response, he scooped.
Overall, a very nice three games. When it wins, it's because I'm able to drop angels early and starting dropping damage. The games I lose, I'm stuck on low mana and no good angels to hit with. My angels are vulnerable to removal, which is an issue, especially effects that aren't destroy, such as exile and Mind Control effects.
I'm enjoying it so far, and am probably done adding cards to it for a while, at least I can get some more money.
Comments and +1's are appreciated.
PS I do have a full art zendi Forest <.< >.>
I have 1x Avacyn, Angel of Hope @ $29.50
Hope we can make a deal!!!
@NinjaNate - The main reasons for removing Blazing Archon is the playgroup change and the amount of hate it draws, almost as much as Avacyn, Angel of Hope . It will almost always be removed when needed, and if not it draws everyone's attention to me. And my playgroup has moved to strong synergies and combos, making it rather redundant. It doesn't stop Mindslaver lock (which is prevalent in 2 decks), doesn't prevent Oona, Queen of the Fae infinitely exiling my library, and the most aggressive deck in our playgroup, my friend's super effective Wort, Boggart Auntie tribal deck can infinite damage everyone without ever having to swing (it is very impressive how quickly it can get up and running).
Don't get me wrong, it used to be a fantastic card in the deck, and I used to love seeing people faces when I top-decked it with Mayael, but lately it seemed kinda lackluster in comparison, was never too happy when top decking it, and has been removed to adapt to the playgroup. I need creatures that can remove creatures, remove other permanents, pose huge threats if not dealt with, and just delay or interrupt peoples combos. People swinging at me hasn't been too much of an issue when I control the largest blockers. If they're swinging at me it's because all my stuff has probably been removed, including Blazing Archon .
