Bladewing the Risen Discussion

dbpunk on Commander 2017 - Spoilers

Isn't Bladewing the Risen at about $3? I would say that's a pretty decent reprint.

With three of my friends looking to buy the dragon tribal deck for Commander 2017, I might just have to get this list.

I have found that lots of dragon decks love tokens.

If your opponent uses Descent of the Dragons, then run a Hallowed Moonlight to stop it. I would say to use a Containment Priest but it sadly doesn't touch tokens. But if they are running a Bladewing the Risen, then Priest will stop that.

So I did some research and found that most Kaalia decks are pretty streamlined, with a few goals in mind. The deck can be divided into a few key parts to look for: big stompy angels/demons/dragons, the best of which are the avacyns, old Gisela, Iona, any other ones with etbs, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Balefire Dragon, Bladewing the Risen, stuff like that. Then you want mana accelerators that can jam kaalia early-stuff like signets, chrome mox, fetches and shocks for fixing, and maybe a couple rituals. Then you want a couple ways to give kaalia haste, like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mass Hysteria, and the like. This can also include lands like Hanweir Battlements, Hall of the Bandit Lord and Slayers' Stronghold. Then once kaalia is out, you'll want a way to make sure your threats stick, which is typically done through land destruction like Wasteland, Strip Mine, Armageddon, Vindicate, and other other mass land destruction. The last bits are some light spot removal (basically the best spells like Anguished Unmaking and Swords to Plowshares) and some backup plans if kaalia gets hated out, like Reanimate strategies and/or Sneak Attack packages.

That being said, you should have a clear idea of what to look for, and for your troubles I can contribute a Reanimate, an Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Sire Of Insanity, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Chrome Mox, Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Swords to Plowshares, Vindicate, Armageddon, and fetches/other mardu lands as filler.

Many renimator decks use disruption in the early turns with cards such as Despise etc. I do have the advantage of using Bladewing the Risen though which doubles my threats early on.

Platinum Angel, Balefire Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Angelic Skirmisher, Bladewing the Risen, Dragon Mage, and Archfiend of Depravity to name a few AMAZING creatures. I would remove your Sarkhan for Sorin Markov or just add him in.

Don't know if Akroma's Memorial would be counterproductive, but would still give your cards a lot of benefits. Armageddon and Wrath of God wouldn't hurt as wipes. Cavern of Souls would be good for counter decks. Blood Crypt and Godless Shrine is more useful for your fetch lands than Bloodfell Caves and Wind-Scarred Crag

Hi hark, I have put together the first draft of the Bladewing the Risen deck. I will fill in the description of how it works on Thursday (5/4/2017). I just wanted to give you the link. Remember, this is only a draft without a description, and I still have some tweaking to do. Feel free to leave suggestions. Try to keep the suggestions under $3. However, I will consider any suggestion you give me (even if it is above $3). It is just that I want to keep it semi-budget.
