Daedalus19876 on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH [REDUX]

hkhssweiss: Huh, I've always found Mask of Memory to be one of the strongest card advantage engines in the deck in testing. Gilded Lotus is a bit slow, I'll acknowledge, but remember that it's essentially 2 mana overall (it comes in untapped and immediately can be tapped to recover a certain amount of the mana investment). And Fight to the Death probably is one of the weaker links here, but I really love the idea of flashing in Archangel Avacyn  Flip followed by Fight to the Death as a surprise (or using it to screw over the Voltron player when they're chump-blocked). And honestly, I'd rather run Grand Abolisher than Tithe Taker here, we'll see :)

DrkNinja: Would you prefer Blind Obedience , Kismet , or Loxodon Gatekeeper here, if I were to run one?

RecklessN7: Bounty Agent was one of my most recent cuts actually! I wanted to run it as commander-hate and as a way to flip Avacyn, but it kinda got overshadowed by other things. And as I was cutting most of my self-sacrificing creatures, I ended up cutting Gift of Immortality (it no longer works with most of my options). I really like the idea of this version of the deck so far though!!

Darkshadow327: Your advice has been implemented!

Hey Daedalus19876 I gotta say I’m Enjoying this new approach you’re taking with this. I hadn’t considered a hatebears strategy but I think it has mad potential. Already have a lot of what you’re running too so maybe I’ll try it out and see what my meta does to handle it. They have been hating me out hard lately since they don’t like how aggressive she can be.

Have you considered Bounty Agent ? Probably very meta dependent but most of my playgroup like to run decks that center around their commanders so he hasn’t proven to be highly disruptive. Even more fun with Gift of Immortality if you decide to keep it

Great! I'm glad I'm not far from the mark.

So, some somewhat relevant cards that are just suggestions with reasoning. I'd like your thoughts on.

As Foretold - not only do you get to sound like a wise elder when you play this, but it lets you break parity incredibly well beneath a stasis lock.

Bounty Agent vigilant (ref. Stasis lock); also it shoots a deck's general.

Incubation Druid a bad version of bloom tender? Goes extremely well with the synergy of the deck already.

Lavinia, Azorius Renegade - on your turns 1-5 she's great. Probably a high priority tutor target early game, likely somewhat dead late game.

Damping Sphere a great anti-storm piece, comes down just as early as they win, so a solid option

Prime Speaker Vannifar an obligatory mention. Some people like bad birthing pod. At the end of the day - it's exactly that. So with this knowledge what you will

Smothering Tithe - a 2 card hard lock with stasis that is just dumb.

Wilderness Reclamation - same as smothering tithe. I feel like it's less good - but is probably better.

The main card advantage engine in this deck is by taxing others. But it says nowhere that you can't also run: Beast Whisperer ,

Vizier of the Menagerie - bad style of draw & mana fixing.

Tithe Taker - a bad grand abolisher... but another copy, I guess.

Chakram Retriever is the goodest boi, especially for abusing bloom tender

Conclave Tribunal is a 0 mana o-ring. Neat.

Dawn of Hope - a nice win-more card. Cute.

Deputy of Detention - a spicy creature version of det-sphere. Meh.

Guardian Project more 4 mana draw engines. Ok...

Spellseeker is a nifty wizard. Fetches your real tutors / mana drain in a pinch.

That's the best summary I could give for the recent set's new cedh options & possibilities for this build.

Thanks for the very good suggestions. Especially the Bounty Agent might find a slot.

It is flagged for needing help since I just wrote it off my mind and I thought I might have missed something.

Really like the deck. It seems like a very solid initial draft, not really sure why you have it flagged for needing/wanting help.

The only 'hatebear-y' stuff that I can think of to suggest are Bounty Agent, Mother of Runes and True Believer but all are pretty dependent on your meta. The Believer can be good if you face spell intensive or combo opponents, the Agent can shine against people playing expensive commanders or anything that runs things like Paradox Engine or Helm of the Host

Mark Rosewater revealed on Blogatog that WotC did not wish for Bounty Agent to be able to destroy planeswalkers, but that seems to be very random and arbitrary, so what does everyone else say about that?

Militia Bugler would allow you to hit your best cards a lot more often. Bounty Agent is a good sideboard card for hitting a variety of threats.
