Avacyn's Pilgrim Discussion

JoltsOfEnergy on Mayael Renewed

There are some cards which I find confusing in your deck. Purphoros, God of the Forge is usually reserved for token decks or other "Go-wide" stategies whereas you are a "go-big" strategy. I also dont know how good Stalking Vengeance is. You are not a sacrifice based deck so this is just a lot of mana for some incremental damage. Then there's Sun Titan . It just doesnt seem like you have a lot of targets for him to bring back. Perhaps a fetchland or a mana dork that got killed early but not much else. Doesn't seem worth it. Then there's some other cards. I prefer Terastodon over Woodfall Primus . And why Sylvan Scrying and no Kodama's Reach ? I'd also consider adding just one more haste enabler. You have multiple creatures that want to be attacking right away like Etali, Primal Storm , Ilharg, the Raze-Boar , Balefire Dragon plus all the eldrazis. May I recommend Rhythm of the Wild ? Seems really solid in your deck.

Here are some other cards you could consider: Elvish Piper , Aura Shards , Decimate , It That Betrays , Void Winnower , Blasphemous Act , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Regal Behemoth .

Hope these help.

Patryn on Najeela and the war bound

Mana Base: In an ideal world you'd have 10 duals, 10 fetches, the good rainbow lands, X shocks (built around your card colors), Gaea's Cradle, and a basic or two. Most people won't have this but you can replicate it with 10 shocks, 5 battle lands, as many fetches as you have, up to 10 check lands, and up to 10 basics (5 regular, 5 snow so they work with Tainted Pact.) Depending on your average CMC I think you can cut one land (I run 34).

Ramp: Ideally all of your ramp would be 1 CMC or less so you can use it in your opening hand to get a turn 2 Najeela. You could add more dorks like Deathrite Shaman , Avacyn's Pilgrim , and Elves of Deep Shadow . I personally don't like dorks since they die to wraths but most of the best Najeela decks run them. You could also add Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl (depending on forest count).

I'd cut Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Pillar of Origins (can't tap to activate Najeel'a ability), Fellwar Stone, Kodama's Reach, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rattleclaw Mystic, and Farseek. Normally I'd say cut Chromatic Lantern but it helps fix your mana base so depending on how your revised mana base performs you can decide whether or not you still need the lantern. Also Harvest Season is cool but depends on how many basics you end up with and its slow.

Combo vs. Pump: You currently run approximately 5 cards that go infinite. When you go infinite it doesn't matter if you're attacking with infinite 1/1s or infinite 6/6s. This is a personal taste call but if you like the combo finish I would cut almost anything that pumps your team and replace it with tutors / counterspells. I'm personally not a fan of Cryptolith Rite because of needing vigilance / a ton of warriors but it helps fix your mana base so up to you. I'd also replace Bear Umbra with Sword of Feast and Famine if you have it.

I'd cut Beastmaster Ascension, Anointed Procession, Door of Destinies, Oketra's Monument, and Lovissa Coldeyes. The only pumps I do like are Bramblewood Paragon and Metallic Mimic because they come down turn two which lets you start the pain train turn 3.

Other: In my opinion you want to keep your CMC as low as possible because if you have 5 mana you could be activating Najeela or keeping up mana for counterspells/protection spells.

Here are some other random cut suggestions: Brighthearth Banneret, Grand Warlord Radha, Hearald of Dromoka, Mardu Strike Leader, Ogre Battledriver, Thrasher Brute, Behind the Scenes, Bow of Nylea, (replace Bow and Behind the Scenes with Reconnaissance and Dolmen Gate for sure) Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Driven/Despair.

TLDR: Reduce CMC and focus on combo instead of pump. I want to say that I see why you put every card in the deck and I'm sure the deck works fine as is so feel free to take any of my advice or none of it. I play Najeela a lot in a semi-competitive environment and here is my deck if you want more ideas Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. I keep a ton of stuff in the Maybeboard of things I used to run or think might be cool.

Mana dorks don't seem like a horrible idea actually. Turn 2 loxodon smiter into turn 3 siege rhino seems nasty. I'd probably suggest going a bit higher on the curve, dropping some fleecemanes and a few removal (as mentioned above), and adding more wilt-leaf liege, maybe Thragtusk , and some Mana creatures ( Birds of Paradise , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Noble Hierarch if you have them) Hope this helps!

I would add a bunch of cheap mana dorks. They help you ramp into Karametra but then will help you get lands off her. Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , Boreal Druid , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Priest of Titania , etc are all really good options and will make your deck a lot faster as well.

Looking at you mana curve, I think that you could easily go down to 20 lands and be just fine. And If you are running 34 creatures, I'd suggest Collected Company unless this is supposed to be a more budget version. If it isn't supposed to be a budget version I would also suggest swapping Noble Hierarch in place of Avacyn's Pilgrim because it has 2 of the colors you need as apposed to just one. I am also going to suggest Path to Exile / Lightning Bolt / Lightning Helix because any deck needs at least a little bit removal. Thalia's Lieutenant is amazing in any humans deck. Militia Bugler could tutor up every creature you have except for Kessig Malcontents . If your deck relies on +1/+1 counters, I'm going to suggest Hardened Scales and Abzan Falconer .

Hey, for a first Commander deck well done.

I'm not sure what your budget is for this deck because I see expensive price cards (Avacyn, Iona, Baneslayer) then also many ultra low budget cards. My cards suggestions are low budget ($4 or less each, most are $1-$2) to improve the manabase because when playing three colors you want more dual lands. A 12-12-8 basic land ratio is too many basic lands for a three color deck. There's several budget lands and additional mana production to consider adding.

White is the most important color because the majority of Angels are white and have mana costs. Angels have high mana costs therefore more ramp (mana rocks, land ramp, mana docks) are quite helpful to cast them in a game.

Cards to consider adding:

Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Port Town, Fortified Village, Ash Barrens and Bant Panorama have interaction with basic lands. Vista, Stream, Scattered Groves, Irrigated Farmland can be searched for with Farseek since these lands are two different land types. Vista and Groves can be search for with Nature's Lore since they have Forest as one of the two land types. Being able to search for and ramp with dual lands is helpful with a three color manabase.

Signets and Talimans are good two drop mana rocks for ramp in Commander decks. Fellwar Stone and Chromatic Lantern are rainbow mana rocks. Very helpful for mana fixing since Lantern lets you tap any land you control for any one color of mana which is good with a three color manabase. Elvish Mystic and Avacyn's Pilgrim are additional one drop mana dorks.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 6x Island
  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Forest
  • Blazing Archon
  • Clone
  • Dust Elemental
  • Gleaming Barrier
  • Servant of the Conduit
  • Conqueror's Pledge
  • Secrets of the Golden City
  • Beneath the Sands
  • Divine Verdict
  • Time Stop

If your deck's budget is higher than I think it is please let me know and I can give you better land suggestions. There's other budget card upgrades you can make here and if you're interested I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

I think that you COULD splash G in exchange for the nonhuman creatures here, those being Angelic Overseer , Dearly Departed and Commander's Authority . In splashing Green, you get access to extremely powerful cards in the form of Tireless Tracker , Harmonize , Dromoka's Command , Hardened Scales , Avacyn's Pilgrim and of course the ever popular, ever relevant Collected Company .

I have a deck similar to this, splashing G to great effect here: Thalia's Horde of Humans.

On the other hand, if you don't want to splash G, Abzan Falconer could be a good finisher.
