Avacyn, the Purifier Discussion

For future reference, when you have questions regarding rules, cards, or card interactions, you can use the Rules Q&A section of this site. Unlike the regular forums, you have the option to "Mark as Answer" a button to indicate your question has been resolved and you have no more follow-ups. I have taken the liberty of moving your thread--if you could mark an answer once this matter has been resolved, that would be appreciated.
A card's colour is determined by the mana symbols in its mana cost or its colour indicator (a dot next to its card type, such as Ancestral Vision having a Blue colour indicator). This only looks at the card face that is showing. For example, Archangel Avacyn Flip is mono-White, even though its back face, Avacyn, the Purifier is Red due to a colour indicator.
It That Rides as One , on the other hand, lacks a casting cost and a colour indicator--thus it is a colourless creature. As such, once your Lone Rider Flip transforms into It That Rides as One , it will go from being a White creature receiving the White benefit of Edge of Divinity to being a colourless creature, receiving neither benefit from Edge of Divinity.

Taking a look now.
Anyone have any thoughts on the rebuild of my well-known Avacyn, the Purifier EDH deck? I'm shifting it from straight-up Voltron to a hatebears list with Voltron subthemes, and enjoying the new version a lot!

Darkshadow327: My meta is one where spot removal is more helpful than full wraths, honestly? Not to mention that Ghostly Prison is often better than a wrath against token decks (in terms of combat), and Avacyn, the Purifier 's damage can often do the trick against mana dorks and smaller creatures. But in this deck I mostly want to prevent my opponents' silliness from happening at all (say, with Spirit of the Labyrinth or Containment Priest ) rather than focusing on answering it after-the-fact (which Boros is very bad at generally).
hkhssweiss: Thanks for the comment. I'd like to avoid ETB-hate (because several things in my deck only work with ETBs, and Containment Priest tends to deal with dedicated ETB spam well enough). However, Devoted Caretaker is very interesting (sorta like a second, less-good Mother of Runes ), and Grand Abolisher is something I really should be playing :/ I'm not a fan of Spelltithe Enforcer or Leonin Arbiter (I don't like giving my opponents choices when using hatebears), and while Gorilla Shaman is really good in Vintage I'm not much of a fan in EDH (he's only good dealing with 0-cost artifacts, and there's rarely more than 5 of those in any deck save Jhoira). Harsh Mentor was something I considered here, but I have found it's very meta-dependent and doesn't do enough work for me. And while I like Sunforger packages, I think that I have enough in those slots (and most of those options are pretty bad outside of their synergy with Sunforger itself). Thanks for your thoughts!
Any of you have any ideas on what you would cut?

You can link cards using double brackets in order to make it easier to address the question, like so:
Bloom Tender isn't checking CMC, but rather a card's actual color. While this is usually represented by casting cost, sometimes it isn't.
A goblin token may have a CMC of 0, but it's still a red permanent, in this case indicated by its frame (anything that produces a Goblin token will usually say "create a red Goblin token" to let you know what color it is).
If you have Avacyn, the Purifier on the board, it also has no CMC of its own, but its frame and color indicator are red, making it a red permanent. Bloom Tender would also produce red mana if you had this under your control.

MadMadison nope. Just an example ;p (I play it in my Jodah decl). I was looking through some cards and found some good ideas. See if any of these work? Maybe take out some clunky cards for it. BTW not checking to see if you already have these cards. If they are here, then they should be pretty good. 1. Commandeer? --> You have a bunch of draw power, so put it to good use! 2. AEtherspouts? --> Not too sure about this one. I'll test it a bit more and see. 3. Cryptic Command? --> Almost always a good card, especially in mono blue! 4. Cephalid Constable --> More Disruption. I stand by this card and think it's extremely valuable. 5. Latchkey Faerie --> Depends on if you are planning to go tribal heavy or not. 6. Master of Waves --> I think those 2/1s are gonna poke in for a lot of damage. 7. Nimble Obstructionist --> I think the cycle ability is great, but a 3/1 unblockable is also valuable. 8. Phyrexian Revoker --> Good card in general. Also unblockable. Disrupts tempo. 9. Rootwater Thief --> Helps disrupt certain cards in their combo. 10. Surrakar Spellblade --> Amazing for card draw. Also unblockable. 11. Thing in the Ice Flip --> Good card in general. I think you should use him as one of your finishers in case your board gets blown up. 12. General Comments: - I think you are too creature heavy. I think you can include soft counter spells. For example, Spell Pierce, Spell Snare, and Negate. I think you need less counter spells for creatures (speaking of, use Counterspell and Mana Drain), because the big damage will be coming from spells like Damnation, Wrath of God, Anger of the Gods, etc. I think counter spells will be useful to save your board state. And if a mass removal does resolve, a Thing in the Ice Flip would be great. Some examples are... - Cyclonic Rift is also great creature disruption with high versatility. - Forbid might be good if you need to dump some cards that u drew. - Stifle is also nice if a creature entered the battlefield and triggered mass removal, like Avacyn, the Purifier.
Another miscellaneous cards could be.. - Mask of Memory --> great card draw!
What you should cut... - Wild-Field Scarecrow - Temporal Adept - Shapesharer and Shape Stealer - Consider Siren of the Fanged Coast even though it did me wonders in that one match. - Courtly Provocateur
That's all I've got for now. Please remember these are just my suggestions. If you implement all of these, it becomes my deck and not yours. So remember, keep what you can justify, and leave what you can't. Incorporate what you see potential in, leave or test the rest. Good luck!
P.S.: I will be back to look at it some more. This deck really intrigues me!

I'm sure you already know, but in case you don't you can actually use red cards for this deck since the flip side Avacyn, the Purifier is red. There are a lot of good boros and red cards that make this deck work a lot better such as Boros Charm, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and Blasphemous Act.

Just did a playtest.
My inferior deck thrashed this one.
You got in early damage but I was able to offset it with Sorin's -X ability.
