Avacyn's Pilgrim Discussion

Esbilon on Lyra, Chorus of Angels

I have not found Seraph Sanctuary to be worth it, particularly not when you're running so many Forests. Razorverge Thicket and Windswept Heath are excellent in my experience. You may also consider running Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , but you do have some non-white devotion, so it may not be worth it.

Noble Hierarch is a significant upgrade on Avacyn's Pilgrim , that Exalted keyword can really help, but I understand if you don't want to spend the money.

I'd also try and make room for Archangel of Thune , she can really make a difference if you get to swing a few times. Though with her, maybe Seraph Sanctuary  would be worth it.

For the sideboard, I recommend Leyline of Sanctity and Stony Silence , they do great work.

I had a similar deck for a good while you can check out if you're interested: Noble Angels.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. This looks good for a budget deck. Consider more lands or more ramp or both? 34 lands is not enough land to support such a high mana curve without having more ramp, additional mana sources. Lots of ramp is helpful with Ghave because he's an engine by himself getting him into play faster than normal is good.

Budget lands ($6 or less each) to consider adding:

Other cards to consider adding:

Sol, Fellwar and one drop mana dorks are additional ramp. Call and Intent are powerful budget tutors. Scales, Constrictor and Pir are additional cards that put more counters on a creature when counters are put on a creature. Cutthroat, Artist and Slimefoot are ways to make your opponent lose life and you gain when you sac Sap tokens. Feeder, Ooze and Champion are creatures who can repeatedly put counters on themselves.

If you like any of these suggestions then I offer help to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

I was looking through the changes in the deck and I noticed something I hadn't before: your Mana curve. It's well made, buy more importantly it's cheap. I'm thinking Collected Company . It's just a powerful instant that can set sooo many thing in motion. Plus it can put (most, not all) of you creatures onto the battlefield.

Something that I normally run in these kind of deck are a mana dork. I WOULD suggest Noble Hierarch , but because this is supossed to be budget, I'm gonna recommend Avacyn's Pilgrim .

Hey, looks good, but consider more ramp? Is this a budget deck? The total deck cost and the manabase tell me that it is, but the maybeboard and a few cards in the main looks like it isn't. Do you have the cards that are in the maybeboard?

Budget cards ($6 or less) to consider adding:

The avg. CMC here is 4.5 which is very high many of these card suggestions/cuts will help to reduce this number.


Cards to consider cutting:

Anthem effects that only pump power/toughness are not doing much when the creatures are already big.

  • Wilt-Leaf Liege
  • Collective Blessing
  • Intangible Virtue
  • Tolsimir Wolfblood
  • Primal Vigor: Lives and Procession are better and don't help your opponents.
  • Desolation Twin: too much mana.
  • Verdant Sun's Avatar: not good enough for seven mana.
  • Kazandu Tuskcaller: too slow.
  • Trostani's Judgment: six mana removal spell for one creature is not worth it even if there's tokens to populate.
  • Emmara Tandris: this effect is not worth seven mana.
  • Nomads' Assembly
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor: 3/3 for six mana who might give you tokens later on is not worth it.
  • Phyrexian Rebirth: Command and Reckoning are better high mana cost board wipes.

Good luck with your deck.

Esbilon Didn't know about the existence of Avacyn's Pilgrim , can be a great upgrade! so is Birds of Paradise , especially because there's no turn 1.

Noble Hierarch is out of my budget for now, but definetly the best.

4 Emeria, The Sky Ruin you are right, maybe there are too many and probably cut 2 for 2 Plains, for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx I think 3 is the right number, you want to draw at least 1 asap.

Thx for replying and the suggestions, I want to try it with the green splash now!

I'd think that 4 Emeria, The Sky Ruin and 3 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx  are too many. Unless you get a lot of value from Knight of the White Orchid , it's going to be hard to consistently get the seven Plains without having to go through half your deck.

It might be worth it to add some GW dual lands that double as Plains Temple Garden , Canopy Vista , Scattered Groves which would let you play Avacyn's Pilgrim , Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch depending on your budget. Getting a turn 1 mana dork into play makes it much easier to get the ETB to work off KotWO.

Esbilon on Avacyn/Boros

Having a lot of cards isn't going to help you a lot against mill, I think. You could consider getting something to shuffle your graveyard into your library again. The best would be something like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , but that's quite an expensive card to have just so that you can get your library back, but it has the upside that you don't need to cast it. More reasonable options would be Elixir of Immortality .

I also strongly recommend that if you're not going for a Commander deck, or a commander feel, that you consolidate your deck and play multiple copies of most cards. If it's nice having one copy, it's usually nice having three.

I'd also recommend having some ramp to actually get to play Avacyn, Angel of Hope once in a while ;) Mind Stone , Gold Myr , Boros Signet , and Knight of the White Orchid are things to consider if you don't want to splash green for Avacyn's Pilgrim or some of the pricier mana-dorks.

Some just all-round good cards you may want to consider are Thalia's Lancers to get Avacyn when she's hanging out on the bottom of your library, Angel of Sanctions for getting rid of the opponent's nasty cards, and of course no angels deck is complete without Lyra Dawnbringer these days.

Sudden Demise and Tooth and Claw aren't modern legal, but if you're only playing casually, I guess that doesn't matter much.
