I don't see the point of running Gisela, the Broken Blade if you're not running Bruna, the Fading Light . I'd replace it with a value creature to keep you alive until you can drop your haymakers, something along the lines of Kitchen Finks or Knight of Autumn .

Hey LordKunai,

He's definitely on the cusp, I spend life like it's mana, so it's comfortable having some lifegain. Definitely Baneslayer Angel is getting close to cut as well. We'll see what new A/D/D come with War.

I found 22 A/D/D the buoyancy level, less than that, a high % of time you connect with a Kaalia of the Vast attack with nothing to play for free.

I could make good arguments for: Archangel Avacyn  Flip shouldn't strike herself, Lord of the Void needs trample, Steel Hellkite .

It's a balance, trying to get better consistency on Win-Con below turn 5, it's been a tough barrier to break though.

weezel been a great help playtesting some of the cards, since I haven't had too much time lately outside my Budget commander league 2x a week to play.

Damnation I need more indestructible (like Archangel Avacyn  Flip), Teferi's Protection needs Split second or to be . I'm probably replacing Terminate with Gamble , and I've picked up a Hatred to try, but then I need MORE Lifelink. Hatred + Lifelink creature is Superstar, so he won't come out if Hatred is in.

Assumed you were kidding LordKunai, poor Bruna, the Fading Light , if only they had given her an ETB!

Might try an alternate combo piece instead of Reveillark like a Combat Celebrant but not sure. Hoping some cool new Dragons come out with Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God coming out.

Hi LordKunai,

Thanks for the comment! Bruna, the Fading Light puts the suck in suck.

Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is awesome...

But Bruna, the Fading Light is SO BAD it ruins it.

Several games I found Bruna, the Fading Light was functionally useless for me in almost all circumstances.

I found I don't need Brisela, Voice of Nightmares to win, but I've found I hate a Bruna, the Fading Light lol.

multimedia on Commander Angel

Hey, you're welcome. I like the changes you've made.

Is Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade worth it? Even though they're Angels they seem only good for flavor not because they're good cards. How offer can you have both in your control to make Brisela, Voice of Nightmares and is Brisela even worth it in Commander? Consider Aven Mindcensor and Luminarch Ascension ?

Mindcensor slows down decks that are relying on tutoring for cards, just about all decks in Commander. One problem with mono white in Commander is a lack of tutors. This puts you a quite a disadvantage against opponents who have a lot of tutors or Fetch lands. Mindcensor helps to even the playing field.

Luminarch Ascension is a great Angel themed card for multiplayer Commander because it looks at each of your opponents end steps. This means that against three opponents just going around the table one duration can give you three counters which is fast to activate it's ability. When it's active, two mana at instant speed to make a 4/4 Angel is very good. Not to mention that you can create as many Angels as you want depending on how much mana you have. Mono white lacks a lot of draw options that other colors have access too therefore you want cards for card advantage (repeatable effects) and Ascension is good at doing that.

Hey, this looks like a ton of fun to play! One thing I noticed: unfortunately, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip has a black color identity due to the color indicator on its' flip side, so you can't play it with Odric. You could use Akroma's Memorial instead, its an artifact loaded with keywords, and can function independently from Odric, which helps with board wipes.

It might also be worth considering putting in Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light , 'cause Brisela, Voice of Nightmares seems like exactly what you're looking for.

Forkbeard on Lyra Dawnbringer: Seek & Destroy

Thanks SomaCruz, lots of great suggestions here. I really wrestled with the angel decisions for this deck - there's so many amazing ones. I debated as to whether or not I should include each of the ones you've mentioned so I'll try to explain the 'why' behind my omissions.

Angel of Jubilation is excellent, love the casting cost and lord effect but she didn't make the cut because I need to be able to pay life for one of my win conditions, Aetherflux Reservoir . Angel of Condemnation and Angel of Sanctions are good removal options, but ultimately I decided that I'm running enough removal. I may revisit that line of thinking if it becomes a recurring problem, perhaps replace Angel of Serenity with one of these cheaper, less win-more options. Now having said that, looking at Admonition Angel again, yeah. That needs to be in here. You're also right about Angelic Skirmisher so I think I'll take that out and swap in Angelic Field Marshal , good call. Sunblast Angel is awesome and is indeed in here already. I thought about Karmic Guide and Dawnbreak Reclaimer as recursion options but I am actually comfortable with the current recursion amount ( Bruna, the Fading Light , Emeria Shepherd , Reya Dawnbringer , Defy Death , Buried Ruin & Emeria, The Sky Ruin ).

Dawn of Hope and Smothering Tithe make a lot of sense and should probably be in here, I'm just not certain what to cut for them yet. I'm luke warm on Geier Reach Sanitarium and Inventors' Fair in here but I see what you're getting at, likewise with Weathered Wayfarer & Expedition Map .

Thank you for the good ideas and let me know when/if you post your Lyra deck, I'd be keen to check it out.

Yes, cool deck! I like the way it works, especially that you've stayed away from an ultra control themed deck. The main thing to change is your average mana costs. Depending on your deck an average cmc could be around 3.0.

Many flying creatures are the proper card for this deck, but I would prefer to turn down Bruna, the Fading Light , Gisela, the Broken Blade for your decks strategy. Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign on the first sight seems right, would be great to insert some more Sphinx creatures. Sphere of Safety is indeed a good card in enchantment decks, but in case of mana costs it may not be worth to consider the payment. On turn 5 you have really good spells in your deck, and the Sphere of Safety doesn't do anything more than Ghostly Prison or Propaganda . Whirlpool Drake is in my opinion not good for shuffeling your graveyard into your library.

My suggestions are Darksteel Plate , for giving your creature indestructible. As I see you are not going into the strategy to pump up your commander with many equipments, but this card could be useful. Also a nice card for giving any of your creatures vigilance I recommend Reconnaissance (okay, it doesn't say dirctly vigilance, but with rules understanding you can untap the creature after the damage is done and before end of combat - so the same effect as vigilance. Also it protects your attacking creatures). Commander staples for white-blue are of course Cyclonic Rift (budget alternative Devastation Tide ), Supreme Verdict or Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer .

In your Maybe-board are already some nice cards - Aura of Silence does work well. Also Kinjalli's Sunwing slows your opponents down. Please consider the following:

  1. Strionic Resonator for getting more trigger effects!
  2. Warden of Evos Isle for some kind of mana ramp
  3. Steel of the Godhead

In my opinion you have to make some desicions wheter you play:

  1. Control with instants (Counterspells, etc.)
  2. Control with enchantments (Stax strategy)
  3. Creature based (more creatures - less spells)
The more strategies you follow the more complicated and destructive is your game plan. I'm really looking forward for this deck - again: many ideas are already awesome!
