Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion
5 days ago
Depends on how many times you face aggro decks. You can construct your angels deck very different on the lower end. For Aggro you only need to survive 5 turns and then you are good. You can adjust your Angels setup deck for aggro with: (Keep in mind when you bring Sorceries and instants in your maindeck, you kill more and more any devotion plan)
What to put in:
- Mass removals: 4x Settle the Wreckage and 4x Terminus and 4x Sunscour (That one is actually only for retarted turn 2 boardswarm decks)
- Creatures: 4x Auriok Champion (Mono red aggro option, keep in sideboard), 4x Archangel of Tithes, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Linvala, the Preserver
- Enchantments: 4x Ghostly Prison, 4x Norn's Annex
What to take out:

Hey, nice start, mono white can be tricky to build and play in Commander. You have Avacyn, Angel of Hope, make her the Commander? This is Angel tribal, but using Elesh Norn as Commander is strange...
No matter the Commander with Angel tribal Angels take up most, if not all, the high CMC spots in the deck because the best Angels have high CMCs. My advice is cut the majority of the other nonAngel high CMC (5 CMC or higher) cards. Ramp and Angels should be priority.
Cards to consider cutting right away because they're not as good as other cards or are redundancy you don't need:
- Beacon of Immortality
- Parhelion II
- Akroma, Angel of Wrath
- Bruna, the Fading Light
- Mass Calcify
- Serra's Guardian
- Seraph of the Sword
- Segovian Angel
- Curse of Exhaustion
- Moonsilver Spear
- Answered Prayers
- Serra Avenger
- Angelic Chorus
- Ajani, Wise Counselor
- Guardian of the Gateless
- Angelic Skirmisher
- Rhox Faithmender
- Vanquisher's Banner
This is 20 cards that doing a quick look over are subpar compared to the rest. The next 10 cards are cut to streamline by choosing the most important cards at different CMCs and cutting the others. Cards to consider cutting:
- Resolute Archangel
- Angel of Vitality
- Gisela, the Broken Blade
- Blinding Angel
- Linvala, the Preserver
- Platinum Angel
- Serra the Benevolent
- Cleansing Nova
- Angelic Accord
- Treasure Map Flip
The last four cards is where it gets difficult to make cuts, but continue to streamline:
Hopefully this info helps and I offer more advice especially if you change to Avacyn, Angel of Hope as Commander since there's several good interactions to take advantage of.
Good luck with your deck.

Grind, Thrashing Wumpus and Crypt Rats were an auto include, I had no idea that this card even existed so thank you for the idea! And I do like Liliana Vess She does bring a lot of hate but if I can get 2 searches out of her then I feel she is very well worth it and has turned games around for me, and at the worst you are right she is just a worse Diabolic Tutor. I have Oblivion Strike in because my play group likes to play eldrazi at times and it is the one spell I can hit ulamog, the ceasless hunger with. And I chose to run Baneful Omen because another player in the group likes to pillow fort with Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Archetype of Endurance and it gives me a way to deal some damage even though I can’t swing through, it also is kind of like a time bomb if played kind of early like turn 4 or 5 with Dark Ritual if it isn’t dealt with. I also cut 1 land for Bubbling Muck, that may not have been the smartest decision over taking out dark ritual but, it has been working wonderfully. I also added Imp's Mischief to the deck. Thank you again for all of your ideas!!

Hey, I like the deck. Two thoughts. Add Isochron Scepter and use it with Dramatic Reversal. Unlimited mana from mana rocks. Second make your lands indestructible with Avacyn, Angel of Hope and/or Soul of New Phyrexia. You get to keep your lands.

white is the weakest mono-color deck due to its lack in card draw and ramp... on that note... the best ramp you can get in white:
and honestly any mana rock would do you well
some spicy includes
and Fiendslayer Paladin because its an awesome looking card

EleshNornsFs - The protections are the big thing, though the creature is nice in case I run into sac effects like Plaguecrafter. I actually do have both Giver of Runes and Mother of Runes and I can fetch them up with Ranger-Captain of Eos or the more flexible Recruiter of the Guard. (With only three CMC1 creatures, I'm not sure how much I'd like Ranger of Eos; I'm not sure it does enough for 4 mana). Thank you for the suggestion!
DuTogira - wow, I completely forgot about Umezawa's Jitte. I was a modern player (I only play casually now) so I've always thought of that card as "off limits." But that's a great suggestion! And the price isn't so bad either; it's cheaper than most of the Mirran Swords.
My commander is Avacyn, Angel of Hope, and so I do think the protection from blue is relevant as most creature theft spells are in blue, and having her stolen would be disastrous, though I have some exile removal and Homeward Path. Do you think creature theft would be relevant here? Is this the best way to go about stopping it?
I also like how the protections make her unblockable against the appropriate colors, as with such a large commander, commander damage is a very viable wincon, and it helps get Worldslayer through, too.
Peligrad - Sure! I was mostly focused on the "mill 10" portion of the sword as part of a general discussion, but ultimately, I do want to improve the deck and it seems that the strength of Sword of Body and Mind is much more context-dependent anyway, especially compared to the other swords. Thank you for the offer!

Previously, this build was listed as "private" up until today as I ironed things out, so please excuse the hastily written description.

In my opinion you could also run Silence so that your opponents couldn't stop your destruction or counter Avacyn, Angel of Hope (See you have Grand Abolisher, but that might not be enough). There are white counters, like Rebuff the Wicked, but not sure about them. Also, I didn't really see any card draw, so maybe something like Mind's Eye, could also help, because you have ramp and some tutors, but I think there would still come dead hands (However if you're going for completely optimal CEDH deck, then maybe not a good choice).
I do have a question if you would run Rest in Peace, since everything you destroy is also exiled so nobody could really recover what is lost? Also, Drannith Magistrate might also be a good stax piece.
