Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

First off, this is not commander. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is a pretty high cmc, even while using the arbor elves.I would switch out this for a lower cmc cost card. Another thing I wanted to point out is or ask you to consider is switching 2 arbor elves for 2 Llanowar Elves.

Ravenrose on Yennett, I Can't Even

1 week ago

First, I would like to say I like your deck a lot (with the exception of the now-banned Iona but that is because I hate that stupid angel). You definitely have a more nasty take on Yennett that I would dread to face! I do think Fated Infatuation would be a fun addition to this deck. Perhaps you would also like to play Medomai the Ageless since you have a lot of extra turn spells. Now that Iona is banned, why don't you add Serra the Benevolent , Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip? I think your deck would love them.

If you want to see my take on Yennett, feel free to check out The Sphinx: A Menacing Mystery.

I hope my comments have been of some help!

Saljen on Lock You Out By Turn 4

If you like land denial, you should check out Wren and Six + Crop Rotation.

I really like what you've put together here. It's very much along the same veins as my "get your friends to stop playing Oathbreaker" deck listed above.

I would suggest Strip Mine / Ghost Quarter + Crucible of Worlds . I know you'll always have access to Armageddon post-turn 4, but it's nice to get in the early land denial and they'll be extremely useful to cycle in the late game when Armageddon costs 8+ mana.

Also, having Terra Eternal in play before dropping that first Armageddon would secure you the game 100% of the time. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is more late game, but also does something similar with it's ability.

Appreciate the suggestions Ill switch some things out for these. The reason for cards like Radiant in my deck is for the mass army of tokens. By using Steel Overseer I give +1/+1 to Myrs, Tendershoot Dyrad for Saprolings, and Radiant for one of the other tokens depending on how my field is going so I have more power per token and reduce my opponent's chances of surviving even if they are also a creature spam deck.

As for cards like Aether, Thran Temporal, and Quicksilver, I've found in my testing my deck has a tendency to give either no mana or only two out of the three types of mana. This is a problem since several cards require 2+ devotion to a certain mana and they are there sort of as insurance to getting out cards like Archetype of Endurance and Avacyn, Angel of Hope . Though I certainely will be putting Elvish Piper in and likely take out Quicksilver Amulet

As for Leyline of Sanctity I'll likely leave it in but add Shalai to add the chance of me getting hexproof, especially since its one less dependence on getting Archetype out with it having such a high cmc.

Appreciate the feedback highly!

Serra, Mother of the Plane

Legendary Planeswalker - Serra

+1: You gain 2 life for each card in your graveyard, then you may shuffle any number of cards in your graveyard into your library.

-2: You get an emblem with, "At the beginning of each end step, if you gained life this turn, create a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying and vigilance."

-9: You get an emblem with "Permanents you control have indestructible." and "You and permanents you control have hexproof"


This would be similar to Chandra Ablaze , as the -2 would be good, but still not amazing. The first ability is narrow, and can often do nothing.

+1: Archangel's Light

-2: Angelic Accord

-9: Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Shalai, Voice of Plenty

Although Chandra Ablaze easily reaches her solid ultimate, this Serra would be a hard task to reach it, but a better reward, also it fits its own strategy better. Burn doesn't want a 6 CMC walker. Control-lifegain doesn't mind a 6 CMC planeswalker, also until Chandra, this one likely protects herself well.

More bulk mythics!

Right now your curve is a bit high so take out Avacyn, Angel of Hope it’s cmc is teeny but high and the chances of getting the card out is slim. If it does manage to get out then your practically unstoppable, depending on your meta. Take out the cluestones and add Sol Ring , Thran Dynamo , Unwinding Clock (sry I feel like this might be part of a combo I didn’t have time to read the whole description) for any color coded signet. If u want token generation Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants put +1/+1 counters and if u reach his ultimate then your set. I feel like one win con is a a bit iffy, considering your opponents can take u out sooner than u can take it out, plus they will be targeting that Felidar Soverign right when it comes out. Commander damage wins is definitely a win con I would consider.

runelord on Does Indestructible prevent loyalty counters ...

I was asking in general for example if something like Avacyn, Angel of Hope gave my plainswalker indestructible would the replacement effect of losing loyalty counters instead of taking damage still take effect.

Not sure if you're going for a cynical or an aspirational approach.

If the former: Border Guard , Soldier of the Pantheon , Unquestioned Authority , Tragic Arrogance , Gauntlet of Power , Warmonger's Chariot , Eternal Dominion , Scorched Earth , and Disdainful Stroke . And maybe some of the 'each player votes' cards like Coercive Portal and Ballot Broker .

If the later, I'll have to ponder some more ... Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the only one that comes immediately to mind.
