Blazing Archon Discussion

Whirlwind_2100 on Avacyn: Hope Eternal

so, after rigorous playtesting, I have come up with some cards to cut and add that will hopefully msk the deck better:

cuttables

  • Alabaster Kirin This does absolutely nothing, has no prison effects, and is kinda useless here

  • Baird, Steward of Argive His prison effect is okay, but you can definitely slot in better options for not too much more money

  • Knight of Sursi Once again, just a vanilla card that doesn't do anything except get a small body on the battlefield, which isnt very good in commander, even if it is indestructible

  • Misthoof Kirin Only really okay in a morph deck, this is kinda useless here

  • Oreskos Explorer just a worse Land Tax

  • Segovian Angel a 1/1 with vigilance has to swing 120 times to win. just a terrible card all around.

  • Silver Knight Kinda bad, doesn't really do much .

  • Shepherd of the Lost this would be good if it have every other creature it's abilities, but alas, it's kinda terrible, especially because I'm smelling a voltron sub-theme around Avacyn

  • White Knight Unless your in a very black heavy meta, this is just bad, and is barley passable even if you have said meta

  • Journey to Nowhere a worse Pacifism

  • All your lands except basic plains. You need more utility lands, not just non-basics that do nothing

  • Wing Shards This one is debatable, although I don't see you casting a bunch of spells and having the mana to cast this, due to the lack of ramp you have.

  • Armillary Sphere bad ramp

  • Traveler's Amulet bad ramp

  • Orazca Relic have fun waiting 5 turns to get blessing and then only drawing one card

  • Take Vengeance crappy removal

  • Bishop of Wings I don't see this deck supporting an angel tribal

Potential Add-Ins

Thanks so much for reading my list, and I hope this has been some help to you. My main problem with this deck was it ran too much inefficient removal and bad creatures, but once these are added in, I think the deck should be a lot for mean. Have a great day! =)

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/turn-3-archon/ just copy this m8 :P. Replace Blazing Archon with your Progenitus and you're done ^^. More stable, more redundancy, usually you have your card out in turn 3.

For creature decks like this, I try to prioritize not just big creatures but also creatures that can replace noncreature spells. This lets your deck be interactive while not deviating from the main plan.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller is a haste enabler that can also be played with Mayael! To make matters even better, he's

Blazing Archon because why not?

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is a really nasty version of Mirari's Wake on a big stick. Regal Behemoth offers another creature version of a mana doubler. Your deck needs all the mana it can get.

Apex Altisaur can remove a lot of creatures for you.

I've only got 2 noncreature suggestions for you. Traverse the Outlands gets you a ton of mana. Illusionist's Bracers is great because getting a copy of Mayael's ability is nothing to scoff at.

Gleeock on Goading to Victory

I have actually goaded my way to victory or (near)victory several times now with my Marisi deck Cats off the Lawn!. Some allstars for me have been: Naya Charm , Return of the Wildspeaker , Glory , Wishmonger , Selvala's Stampede , Thieves' Auction , Oath of Druids , Earnest Fellowship , Gingerbrute , Lumbering Satyr . I can give you any number of reasons for any of those if some of them make you scratch your head. Mass enchantment hate or artifact hate has been much more important than mass creature hate for me. Of any subtractions, I would recommend Blazing Archon or Norn's Annex as I usually have effectively goaded out of taking hits anyway.

Vigor is thematically a super fun idea for the deck, but unfortunately isn't how your deck plays (because your sig. spell is triumph of the hordes)

Woodland Bellower

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip

Reclamation Sage <- this on is highly recommended, giving you control, which only acidic slime really provides right now

Beast Within Similarly control, although I expect this to be mostly removing oathbreakers or problematic pillowforting (think Ghostly Prison or a rogue Blazing Archon (which you should have won before it comes out but hey, doesn't always happen))

Inspiring Call 1/1 counters are a subtheme, and I could see this being very beneficial

Dryad Arbor This is a dryad arbor deck. You like having the additional elf creature at pretty much all times.

Green Sun's Zenith

Chord of Calling

Soul of the Harvest

Harmonize This is a little slow, but I could see it working out in your favor if your inital ramp has failed. sideboard: Mwonvuli Acid-Moss Land destruction is obnoxious, but there are some times when it's necessary Terastodon Your deck ramps enough for this card to be relevant.
