Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

Spirits on My my my my Kaalia

1 hour ago

Hey, welcome to the world of Kaalia of the Vast.

Crucible of Worlds + Ravages of War + Armageddon + Cataclysm isn't the only mid-range strategy.

If you're interested check out my Kaalia of the Vast deck Kaalia, the Purifier

I personally use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, I find it just as consistent as Crucible of Worlds, doesn't slow the game down, and has less down side to destroying myself. I have some details of Worldgorger Dragon mid-range win con as well for infinite mana or infinite damage.

Rune-Scarred Demon is a must have for me as atoz42 indicated. So is Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Balefire Dragon.

Also, you need a Master of Cruelties, triggered off Kaalia of the Vast attacking and no blockers, it's a win as their life becomes 1 then Kaalia of the Vast hits for 2.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is also pretty awesome.

Spirits: Wow, thanks for the suggestions! Rune-Scarred Demon and Avacyn, Angel of Hope seem really great. And I didn't even think about Hanweir Battlements. Definitely adding these cards.

Hey, nice build, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the flagship Angel of this deck, shes pricey, but critical in here. The indestructible is also very, very nice.

Rune-Scarred Demon is a great Demon, he replaces himself in your hand with a Master of Cruelties or a Avacyn, Angel of Hope or can pull an Anguished Unmaking if Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Purphoros, God of the Forge are punching you in the face. Demonic Tutor also great. Best solutions, more searching for them.

Path to Exile is great removal.

Blood Crypt and Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry are great because they are Mountain, Swamp and Plains so searchable. In 3-color Mardu, mana fixing is an issue.

Angel of Despair is also good for destroying annoying permanents.

Not sure Night's Whisper is a good enough card advantage, but I understand, Mardu doesn't have too many great ones. Sign in Blood is a little more modular, allows you to target opponents, if you need them to lose two life or lose. But the makes it more difficult to cast earlier on during ramping up.

I like the Banishing Light and Oblivion Ring you've gone with.

Don't think this guy is too much of a threat Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury. if he gave haste to others would be ok. Usually won't be attacking with too many creatures. His Dash is nice, but not really that strong. Won't trigger if brought in with Kaalia of the Vast either and negates his Dash.

I think Hanweir Battlements is better than Slayers' Stronghold, You lose the +2/+0 and Vigilance, but for less Mana.

Overall cool build, some fun demons and dragons in there. +1

Hey nice build. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

You could really use a Rune-Scarred Demon in here. He is a respectable 6/6 but replaces himself with a Master of Cruelties or an Avacyn, Angel of Hope depending on board position, or he can pull an Anguished Unmaking if you have a problem.

I also really like Balefire Dragon, he is one of my favorites.

Really like the Angel's Grace in here. Could utilize a Dragon Tempest the haste allows Kaalia of the Vast to connect more often, than waiting for everyone to have a turn to destroy her.

Since you have Crucible of Worlds could utilize an additional land destruction like Ravages of War or Cataclysm, or at least a Strip Mine. There is a second Strip Mine as well, it's name escapes me at this very moment.

I would have to verify this but I don't think Duelist's Heritage can double strike the Angel/Demon/Dragon. Both Kaalia of the Vast and Duelist's Heritage triggers will go on the stack (in the order you choose), but you have to select the targets when going on the stack, which means, the creature isn't on the battlefield yet. I could be wrong, but feel like Silverblade Paladin might be a better option, but he's a creature so easier to remove, I understand that.

You don't have many equipment, the double strike maybe, but worries Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon without any equipment or other creature support might not get there on the 10 poison counters, and then he's really just slowing you down since everyone else is just doing damage, except him.

I personally dislike the randomness of Tariel, Reckoner of Souls plus it relies on opponents graveyards, when all you removal is Exile. Although you do run LOTS of board remove (except Terminus which won't help with graveyard)

Pretty cool. +1.

Maybe drop Emeria Angel for Hellkite Charger. Also, I'd suggest Avacyn, Angel of Hope.

Hello there, my favourite Kaalia player! I'm really glad you like my precious deck.

It is true my deck is sometimes too slow and you are right, it's because of Hall of the Bandit Lord but also the nature of the deck itself AND my style of playing it. I often like to have bigger board presence rather than actually doing anything with it. I like making possibilities and not attacking with all the aggro I can get.

Eldrazi Conscription is a card that made me think a lot but I came to a realisation: for me it's not an aura for 8. It's an equipment for 4 with equip 4. That is so since I'd cast and equip it on one turn anyway to minimise the risk of removal. If you look at it like this it suddenly stops being so overcosted, doesn't it?

Condemn is great because it has no drawback. Except it's very optional indeed. I am actually planning to upgrade it to the Path, but not until I get the promo series version with Rebecca Guay's art. :)

Oblation is a draw card as well as a removal if someone has something really terrifying like Avacyn, Angel of Hope on the field.

I am planning to get rid of some more gray lands, Darksteel Citadel included for Inkmoth Nexus for example, but currently I find it hard to acquire them. When i do though, they will replace these less valuable ones.

New Benalia, Thran Turbine and Terrain Generator are all really nice suggestions. I'm afraid that the first one will slow me down more than help with the scy. The Turbine looks great but gives me mana only for the upkeep. I hardly ever do anything on my upkeep. The Generator is nice if you are flooded, but it's not bad imo to put one land down each turn. I don't need to put all I have on the board. I'd rather not draw any more of them. And this is when Endless Horizons used to rescue me. It was a lot of searching and a lot of shuffling after the game though and I took it out.

Stonecloaker is a really nice one! I remember I've seen it before. Never gave it a second thought though. Looks really nice. I need to get one and playtest it!

I used to want Kemba on the team but after some time I realised the tokens aren't that great. Ok, some fire and block power. But nothing else except making it harder to protect the one equipped creature since the opponent will use a lot to get rid of her.

Hushwing Gryff is already in my "sideboard". I don't always want it in play because I have the Stoneforge Mystic and I like to blink it. (which I could do with the Stonecloaker too!)

Mentor of the Meek would be nice with Kemba. Without her I don't have a lot of creatures with 2 or less power. It's 17 -ok, but I'm not sure it's worth it. Well, maybe it requires more thought...

As for another suggestions: Linvala, Priest and the Rack: there is only one reason I don't use them: money. Containment Priest actually look like it's within my reach but it's only against Kaalia. Do you really want me to have it? :) Also, it would prevent me from blinking the Mystic or anything in fact.

Thank you very much for such an amazingly long and thoughtful comment with so much great stuff to think of! I do appreciate it a lot. Cheers!

Neat deck! I've never actually played dredge, so I'm a bit rusty on the input at the moment. My only concern here is you being able to pay for cards like Progenitus or Avacyn, Angel of Hope other than Dread Return, and you may want to cut colors like red and white to get a much smoother and less damaging mana base. I also don't see why Flame-Kin Zealot is in here, as it could probably be replaced with Stinkweed Imp for a more dredge-focused game. Again, I'm new with dredge, but in the competitive play that I have seen, it's usually a good idea to stick to three colors or less. +1 hope this helps!

Avacyn, Angel of Hope isn't legal in standard. Did you mean Archangel Avacyn  Flip?
