Blinding Light Discussion
5 months ago
This looks like one fun deck! For your consideration, you may want to take a look at Phyrexian Rebirth and Martyr's Bond as additional removal. Blinding Light can open up the field for a big swing, and if you have True Conviction on the field, it's really going to hurt. Captain's Claws might be good sideboard card to make more tokens. Keep up the great work!

I would remove the following cards: 1. Soldier of the Pantheon- It has too small of an effect. 2.Blinding Light- It is Sorcery speed so it can only be used offensively and the effect is too small. 3. Defy Death- This effect is alright but is really situational. It is a victim of having only 100 cards.4. Staff of the Sun Magus- Too small of an effect.5. Scroll of Avacyn- Too small of an effect.6. Marble Diamond- Mediocre card that is just "alright".7. Coldsteel Heart- same as Marble Diamond.8. Reverse Damage- 100% reactive cards are often dead draws.9. Chastise- Same as Reverse Damage.10. Moonlit Wake- To small of an effect.11. Sun Droplet- +1 life a turn is awful. Use this card as a coaster.---The above cards are all bad and are easy cuts.-The last two cuts are hard, but id suggest one card for sure:12. Sensei's Divining Top- with only 1 card draw engine Well of Lost Dreams and no other shuffle effects, the top is not very good at all. Great card in a bad situation. I would cut it.---As for the 13th cut; you will have to playtest and see what feels underwhelming, too often.

It looks like you may be a little short on mana... You also have a lot more white costs than red. I'd suggest Pearl Medallion and maybe up to 35-36 land. You have a fair bit of enchantment/artifact destruction, so I'd drop Aurablast & Wear / Tear as well as Reroute unless you find those cards really useful or need them to stop combo decks. Iona's Judgment seems really high in CMC - maybe Oblivion Ring? Consider Gisela, Blade of Goldnight because it's a great card. Goldnight Commander is nuts with Assemble the Legion, but not as much otherwise. Moonsilver Spear might also come in handy, or Spear of Heliod. I'm not sure how useful you will find Sunblast Angel without Blinding Light or Subjugator Angel. Also not sure about Guardian of the Gateless unless you play a lot of decks that try to kill you with a huge swarm of tokens. Not sure about Angelheart Vial... would Sun Droplet be better? or maybe something like Norn's Annex or Crawlspace to keep them from hitting you in the first place? Also, not too sure about Faithless Looting or Firemane Avenger (I have one, but somehow it never quite makes the cut)... your mileage may vary.
I'd build a little more flexibility into your manabase... it doesn't have to be expensive to work well... Consider adding Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion, Rogue's Passage, Wind-Scarred Crag, Seraph Sanctuary, Terramorphic Expanse, Sejiri Steppe, even Naya Panorama is an option... I'd also lean your basics to favor white more heavily.
Forgive my rambling.. it's late and I need to get to bed. I hope some of these suggestions help you, and let me know if you have any more specific questions or areas you want to work on. I like the use of Myriad with Battalion and Melee in your deck, and I hope you have fun in your casual group.
