Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

NensouHiebara on Eight-and-a-Half-Tails | Equipment Voltron

Gideon Jura was in my deck, but didn't stay long. Low utility and no proper ult isn't what I want in a Planeswalker.

Wurmcoil Engine was also in my deck, but was cut for Serra Ascendant. I'm also trying to limit the amount of 6cmc cards in my deck.

I don't need Soul of New Phyrexia. I already use Avacyn, Angel of Hope and I don't like the idea of being forced to hold back 5 mana every turn.

MadMNML on Tokens as Leaders

first of all, i really loved this deck.So i have some questions:1. Can't understand why u used Dark Depths? it's legendary token, just can't clone this. And whitout Thespian's Stage need 30 mana(!) to use it... also with it we need some land tutors like Expedition Map and Weathered Wayfarer last guy really bad for green color, even u have it on u start hand... p.s. just think it's not good idea, just space in your deck.

  1. Skyshroud Claim in play tests i have some moments then i just can't find some forests in deck, becose they was in battelfield or hand. p.s. Dark Depths -> Forest or Homeward Path

  2. Conqueror's Pledge > Increasing Devotion > Spectral Procession. Just saying.

  3. Avacyn, Angel of Hope, i really love Avacyn... she's my main general. but vs blue decks she really bad. Clone or Mind Control and JUST HORRIBLE - Bribery. Can be cruel fo some situations. Just 2 options: first, used Homeward Path, this land good vs blue, or replace Avacyn, Angel of Hope for Enlightened Tutor to find Eldrazi Monument or other 17 cards.

  4. Deserted Temple + Gaea's Cradle More mana - more fun!

  5. other Removles

Austere Command - good

Phyrexian Rebirth - ok

Martial Coup - good

Kirtar's Wrath - ok

March of Souls - Exellent

Condemn - exellent just for general.

  1. More tokkens Nomads' Assembly // Decree of Justice // Devout Invocation

  2. Golems Blade Splicer // Master Splicer // Maul Splicer // Precursor Golem // Vital Splicer and Sensor Splicer -but he outsider here.

  3. Worm? Wurmcoil Engine

  4. also Baloth Cage Trap // Thopter Assembly // Hero of Bladehold // Thraben Doomsayer // Knight-Captain of Eos // Marshal's Anthem

  5. Rings of Brighthearth // Illusionist's Bracers - hm, not bad idea. White color helps find it: Enlightened Tutor // Idyllic Tutor // Stoneforge Mystic // Stonehewer Giant

I'm still attempting to trade some of my friends' cards for Khans fetches, and he still has many good cards left! Some of the notable ones are 2x Avacyn, Angel of Hope, 2x Restoration Angel, and 2x Counterbalance! Look at his list and the fetches he still needs in the SB here!

I would have to say my favorite is definitely when I played my Kaalia of the Vast deck and I got Liliana of the Veil ultimate out, and then I had Avacyn, Angel of Hope out to, then I dropped Ravages of War and won and havent played that deck since cause my playgroup wont play if i do :( but it was fun while it lasted

I had similar thoughts. I've found I needed more wrath spells with the people I play with. I was thinking of getting Avacyn, Angel of Hope to solidify the deck, but I might wait to see what the next set holds before I make that move because she carries a lot weight money wise with purchasing her.

Deadan on Anima (feedback please!)

Also since you have 3 colours, you might just want to have the signets (Gruul Signet, Selesnya Signet and Boros Signet). In addition Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus can do wonders. And while we are talking artifacts: Rings of Brighthearth is essential to Mayael the Anima.

Staying with the colourless theme...the arguably best creatures you can have in a Mayael deck are the Eldrazi. Namely Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, It That Betrays, Artisan of Kozilek, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Ulamog's Crusher. They destroy your wallet and you will earn yourself some justly earned hate, but it doesn't get more effective...

And since I already suggest you to make people hate you, why not go for the most annoying of angels even surpassing Avacyn, Angel of Hope in that regard: Iona, Shield of Emeria.

So now for some comeback mechanics. There are games, when you draw shit and you just can't keep Mayael the Anima for long. Your opponent(s) on the other hand play(s) creature after creature. Removal is now key: Wrath of God and Blasphemous Act are prime examples. Some of your creatures may even survive the latter. Afasia already mentioned Dense Foliage, but there are two more cards like that, that cost 5 and do the same and more for you alone: Asceticism and Privileged Position. The former also has a very nice ability against many removals and is a staple in pretty much any green EDH deck.

Hope that helps!

jraynor on Picking the best two tutors

Personally I love Tooth and Nail and Defense of the Heart because they pull two creatures. Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Avenger of Zendikar + Craterhoof Behemoth can win you games. Aside from that, Wargate is the obvious choice in Bant so run 3.

rcrimmins on Karador, ETB Chieftain

4 days ago

Just food for thought, I'm not saying this is exactly correct, but I wanted to share my theory based on my play testing.

I've been building a similar list and I've been removing almost all 1 for 1 removal that isn't on a creature's back.

I would replace:Mortify Path to Exile Maelstrom Pulse

with all wraths:Rout, Day of Judgement?!?!?!!, (maybe Crux of Fate). In this case, End Hostilities is actually quite good because so many EDH decks run Sword of Fire and Ice, etc, and try to Voltron up.

If your concerned about enchantments like Rest in Peace, Back to Nature is probably better than a 1 for 1 because you can recover your lost enchantments more easily.

The main reason to wrath instead of target is because you can recover from a wrath far more quickly and efficiently than your opponents can. Plus, a yard full of creatures is where you want to be - especially since you have so many have etb effects.

If you add in a few of these Satyr Wayfinder Grisly Salvage Commune with the Gods Deadbridge Chant, you'll always be able to play Karador, Ghost Chieftan for three, which means you'll be able to play it and (at a minimum) Voice of Resurgence the turn after any wrath. Your opponent, on the other hand, will be at a card disadvantage for every creature lost under the wrath. They may end up in a position where they need to top deck to recover.

Throw in Avacyn, Angel of Hope and wrath effects win you the game.

There are exceptions. Vindicate is so good that it should stay in. But for anything that can ride on the back of a creature, I think you'll be better suited to do so. Reclamation Sage is better in this deck than Krosan Grip for example. Avatar of Woe will almost always drop for 2 and provides an answer for most threats.
