Avacyn, Guardian Angel Discussion

I feel Providence may do more harm than good. You never want to reveal it, and 7 mana is a lot to invest in life reset. A good reveal angel would be Chancellor of the Annex. I would also replace Avacyn, Guardian Angel with Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

In addition to what other people mentioned, it's important to not just make people like you, but encourage people to do things other than attack you. I've been in games where people will thank me, but then turn on me later. If you include cards like Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Orzhov Advokist there's extra incentive to attack someone else.

For me a large part of group hug decks is getting political. By this i mean you help out people in exchange for them helping you and helping take out other player you deem scary. You can go beyond that and directly barter with people too. Telling people you will use your Phyrexian Splicer, Duelist's Heritage, or Power Matrix if they attack someone other than you is always nice.

If however you want to stay truly group hug and ignore the political aspect of it, i'd add more ways to directly give people more options with cards like Wishmonger, Intellectual Offering, Benevolent Offering, Sylvan Offering, Collective Voyage, Tempt with Discovery, Tempt with Reflections, Alliance of Arms.

The advocate creatures are also pretty nice. They have a benifit to you (or an oponnt if you feel generous) and return cards from your opponents graveyard back to their hands: Forcemage Advocate, Nullmage Advocate, Pulsemage Advocate, Shieldmage Advocate and Spurnmage Advocate.

Avacyn, Guardian Angel can also help your opponents or save yourself if needed. (vigilance is also nice cause you can still attack someone if needed)

Forced Fruition is a wierd one (they draw the cards whether they want to or not)

You mentioned in your last comment you said you really enjoy ridiculous decks. While it isnt exactly group hug, Knowledge Pool, Eye of the Storm and Hive Mind fit that description pretty well.

I've tried the mono-white angel EDH before. Never panned out, but since angels are usually expensive creatures, Quicksilver Amulet is usually a good idea. You also might want to consider more board wipes like Wrath of God and Rout. I'd also consider removing Avacyn, Guardian Angel because she doesn't really do enough (at least in my opinion).

Hey I just read your primer over on MTG Salvation and I really enjoy your idea for this deck, so much so that I'm looking to build a deck around this Avacyn myself.

I might be biased in suggesting this because I love angels but I don't think a Deathless Angel would be amiss in a list like this. It's basically an Avacyn, Guardian Angel / Eight-and-a-Half-Tails but for indestructible. It's a bit mana-pricey but I think it fits the kind of theme you're going for.

First off, sorry for the delayed response. I don't comment on this site too often.

ericweiss1999, regarding your suggestions:

Wayfaring Temple: I tried this for a while, but the lack of evasion often just made it a big blocker.

Growing Ranks: Just a little too slow for me

Avacyn, Guardian Angel: the deck is surprisingly mana-hungry as it is, so adding this would only accentuate that problem.

Precinct Captain: I actually play this in my Daxos soldiers deck, but it's just too little in this deck. This deck is on the slower side, so an aggressive 2-drop doesn't really contribute to the strategy.

Champion of Lambholt: Not a bad idea, but the deck normally doesn't make enough tokens fast enough to justify it.

Collective Blessing: Added it. I'm not sure if it's worth it, but I like that it makes most of your tokens into things that trade with most staple big dudes (6/6s, 7/7s).

Hornet Queen: A good idea. I should try to grab a copy to replace Wolfcaller's Howl.

Advent of the Wurm: Maybe? I'll have to think about it

Elven_gamer: Tenacity seems pretty good here, but I really want to add that to my Aurelia deck, I think. Or maybe Numot since it runs Sunforger.

Rhys the Redeemed I think is better as a commander and in a deck that's more about going wide. This deck is more about going... square, I guess? It wants a good number of tokens, but it prefers big tokens to lots of little ones.

sava629: Thanks you! I hope that EDH is as fun for you as it's been for me. I'll have to pass on Emmara Tandris, though. It's both just really expensive and the deck prefers to make bigger tokens, so I don't normally have to worry tokens dying and don't mind if I lose one in a gangblock or something. It might be good for dealing with voltron commanders like Geist or Uril, but I'm probably dead before I can reliably get this out anyway lol.
