Benevolent Offering Discussion

What are your thoughts on the Offerings? (Intellectual Offering, Sylvan Offering, and Benevolent Offering)

According to tapped out, Trade secrets is showing up as an illegal card for commander. But again, if you're only using this for casual games and not tournaments that makes no difference.

As far as the tax versus politics stuff goes, political cards to me are stuff like Mana-Charged Dragon or in your colors Hunted Phantasm or Tempt with Glory. Be like Bugs Bunny. As in, cast a card like Benevolent Offering to give the player not drawing into creatures tokens, but giving another player the health because they need it more. Or even use a Tempt with Reflections on a Swans of Bryn Argoll. You wouldn't need tax effects like the prison or propaganda then because people don't want to attack you anyway, lest you die and your benefits go away. I've survived a lot of multiplayer games till the end for exactly that reason. You want to get really deep into that style of play though? Then be willing to hit somebody else's lands with Rewind.

Swords to Plowshares, Wall of Shards, Avenger en-Dal, Luminate Primordial, Last Breath, Armistice, Benevolent Offering, Condemn, Oust are most of the notable "opponent gains life for a profit" cards.

Find ways to spend your life gain! Birthing Pod might be right up your alley.

Bant Charm, cuz. Ditto for Cyclonic Rift, Beast Within, etc.

Temur Sabertooth to bounce your stuff to hand and recast, while protecting ya dudes.

Drogskol Reaver for the dank life-gain synergies.

Nice deck, Radiant is pretty interesting!

Here are some hopefully budget recommendations for this deck.

Flying creature token generators: Benevolent Offering, Custodi Soulbinders, Decree of Justice, Drogskol Cavalry, Herald of the Host, Moonsilver Spear, Requiem Angel, Sacred Mesa, and Spirit Bonds.

Wrath of God with flying creature tokens: March of Souls.

Enchantment-based flying creature token generation: Sigil of the Empty Throne.

Benefits for having flying creatures: Archon of Redemption and Serra Aviary.

Dealing with opponents with flying creatures: One-Eyed Scarecrow, Predator, Flagship, and Skyblinder Staff.

Also, since Forsaken Sanctuary, Nahiri's Machinations, and Spectral Shepherd have mana symbols that aren't just white or colorless in their rules text, for EDH/Commander, they don't have a white color identity, and so they can't be in a deck with Radiant, Archangel as the commander.

Ghost Town and Mage-Ring Network don't seem too useful in this deck, but if you are looking for storage lands that give white mana, Icatian Store and Fountain of Cho seem like better options. Also, while the art for Serra's Blessing is amazing, I think Brave the Sands would be a better option.

False Cure is much better as three more Enlightened Tutors and another Rest for the Weary. You may want to consider Benevolent Offering over Congregate. Also, Beacon of Immortality exists.

Swords to Plowshares and/or Oust may interest you. Enlightened Tutor will increase consistency. You may also enjoy Benevolent Offering and/or Beacon of Immortality.
