Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

Since you play Stonehewer Giant and Avacyn, Angel of Hope , did you think about Worldslayer ? Flashing it in onto unblocked Zurgo with Giant is pretty hilarious.

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

3 days ago

Hi weezel,

I was thinking about my Reveillark alternative win-con's,

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Reveillark + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

It's also recursive with Grand Abolisher or Dark Confidant etc, in addition to Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Karmic Guide

The downside is, it's CMC5 (), and needs sac outlet and Enabler Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Karmic Guide .

Hatred is CMC5 () and just needs Kaalia of the Vast but also likes guys like Baneslayer Angel , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Gisela, the Broken Blade , Lyra Dawnbringer , Serra Ascendant or Whip of Erebos .

Was thinking, it's a different win-con (only 1 player too in some cases), but other than being high CMC, would allow me to cheat in an A/D/D and Commander Damage kill a player if left unblocked as well (Instant speed).

Combat Celebrant is enticing because of his CMC3 (), other than his obvious Exert ability which can land 2 A/D/D in 1 turn, do some mass damage with someone like Balefire Dragon or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , but his real power is that he doesn't need the sac outlet.

Combat Celebrant + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker | Infinite Combat Phases

Potentially a win-con with someone like, Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Demonlord Belzenlok , Doom Whisperer , Hellkite Tyrant , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Etc. unless there is something large enough to block the Trample indefinitely. Doesn't matter if Combat Celebrant is blocked, just making the copy, allows for the next attack to occur. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker never gets in harms way.

I'm sure there are more ways to abuse him, Splinter Twin obviously, which doesn't work with Buried Alive but can replace Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in most/all? combos too. could tutor Splinter Twin pretty easily. Idyllic Tutor for example could also pull me an Animate Dead etc, feel there could be some good build out around Combat Celebrant for combos, and just his natural talent when attacking with large A/D/D.

Early on, when I played Adarkar Valkyrie , I also played Aurelia, the Warleader for:

Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Combat Phases

Adarkar Valkyrie also gave me:

Adarkar Valkyrie + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

Adarkar Valkyrie + Karmic Guide + Lightning Greaves or Dragon Tempest + Goblin Bombardment | Infinite Damage

I just found neither Adarkar Valkyrie or Aurelia, the Warleader properly ETB triggered with Kaalia of the Vast , and I was never tutoring either of them because they aren't that impactful, so ended up removing Adarkar Valkyrie and then later Aurelia, the Warleader to focus more on the primary win-con with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel .

Crucible of Worlds more inline with a classic Kaalia of the Vast , which the Infinite Combat phases + Land Destruction is part of the reason (as well to a degree the amount of hate Kaalia of the Vast receives as a commander), is why she fell to Tier 3, from Tier 2.5 previously. If I have a Grand Abolisher I don't care, but if I don't, sometimes there is surprise when they have 40 life and think they are unkillable by Kaalia of the Vast and leave themselves open and I can swoop in on T4 with the Restoration Angel horde!

It's been a long time since I needed to resort to Reveillark , either I've won, or someone else has combo'd before I really get to a point of attempting a Reveillark win. Combat Celebrant , I feel like I could also use, Entomb / Gamble , example:

Entomb > Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Mausoleum Secrets > Reanimate . With a Combat Celebrant and anything to attack with, I'm good to go. ( Entomb makes Mausoleum Secrets more valuable to me too). He also doesn't get haste from Dragon Tempest either, so that's another negative.

He can't really Turn 1 so that's kinda why I was thinking more along the lines of Hatred even without augmenting the Lifelink. Life also fuels my speed, Draw/Mana/Tutor, so not sure of the impact to my game post Hatred .

Dark Ritual , Simian Spirit Guide , Mox Diamond all increase T1 potential, but I always worry about, outside of T1 do they have much value. Dark Ritual can cast a Necropotence so it has some benefit and with other cards Buried Alive + Reanimate .

My current challenge is Faithless Looting , I think it needs to go back in, have to decide what to remove. In games where I draw my Karmic Guide or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker I'm usually like T9 because I have to actually cast them and at CMC5, it's just not realistic with the other costs ( Buried Alive CMC3 and Reanimate CMC1) thats, CMC9, never going to happen. A Faithless Looting makes it CMC5 only. Faithless Looting also has some nice synergies if I don't have an A/D/D in my hand and Kaalia of the Vast is ready to go.

I agree, when is a deck every truly complete. Ever time I play I learn something new about my deck, or a Razaketh, the Foulblooded comes a long and takes over top dog spot in my decklist, and makes Griselbrand being Griselbanned a little easier to take.

Both of you are right magnusactor and PapaC83 about Zur the Enchanter and Oath of Ajani .

I've tried Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Privileged Position it hasn't worked too much, specially indestructible.

For Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon I never thought about him, but with Captain Sisay and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign could be an interesting addition.

Knight-Captain of Eos could be good, but I'm quite satisfied with Spike Weaver probably better than indestructible. I truly need to test with the combination of Elspeth, Knight-Errant

I don't think that Sword of Body and Mind would work fine in this deck, but it gives me the idea of trying Umezawa's Jitte .

Grafted Exoskeleton it's a personal choice and every time it hit the table this equipment had the job done.

Cant wait to see the new set War of the Spark. I'm pretty sure I'm going to see something good for my deck.

Tenebroleso on Ezuri, Renegade Leader [Elfball] [8/10]

16/03/2019: LOST (Home testing)

vs Oloro, Ageless Ascetic + Prossh, Skyrider of Kher + Ezuri, Renegade Leader
Partita straordinariamente veloce. Oloro apparecchia con un po' di mestizie tipo Meekstone e Pendrell Mists .
La partita quindi rallenta subito finché non entra Jodah che spara Sunbird's Invocation e, il turno dopo, Conflux . Tutora Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Omniscience , Kaervek the Merciless , Progenitus e Archetype of Endurance .
Scende Omniscence senza che nessuno abbia risposte e la sinergia con l'invocazione gli fa giocare a suon di cast e cascade letteralmente tutto il mazzo tranne le terre.
Si sente il bisogno di qualcosa che dà rapidità perché Jodah passa e, prima che il turno gli torni, Oloro spara un Cyclonic Rift overloaded che gli rimanda in mano 50 carte.
Le terre però sono ancora lì e sono sufficienti ad appoggiare Omniscence e, di conseguenza, tutto il resto. E questa volta il tavolo non ha risposte.
