Capashen Unicorn Discussion

DejairOrteno on Bring on the Hate

I think people underestimate the power of cards like Soltari Champion. Sure it doesn't look better than Honor of the Pure, but after factoring in that it's a creature, that is basically unblockable and that can be the target of teshar's ability, you'll see how it's that much better for what we're trying to do. Same can be said about effects like Capashen Unicorn.

If you're putting sacrifice effects on the list I would suggest Mangara of Corondor, which even in the worst case scenario it's an exile effect.

Two cards that missed me when I wrote the article were, Frontline Medic and Lieutenant Kirtar. The first is amazing as a way to force through damage and the second is a flying beater that has a strong removal stapled to it.

Personally, looking a bit closer, I would go with Karametra, God of Harvests as a commander. I did a gatherer search including Antelope, Elk, Horse, Unicorn.

Burnished Hart and Dawntreader Elk get you additional land. Grazing Gladehart gains life for landfall.

Capashen Unicorn blows up artifacts and enchantments. Somberwald Stag can be used as a sort of creature removal.

Opaline Unicorn taps for mana. Diamond Mare from the new set gets you life when you cast spells.

Crested Sunmare is a horse that makes other horses.

Stampeding Elk Herd can give your other stuff trample (which works great with Beastmaster Ascension, since it doesn't give trample).

Replacements for Decommission with rationale.

Capashen Unicorn - Repeatable by bringing it back to the field

Disenchant - I'd rather have lower CMC than the potential to gain 3 life.

Devout Witness - Use to discard creatures from hand, provides targerts for with Alesha

Duergar Hedge-Mage - You have mountains and plains. Recurs with Alesha

Rzepkanut on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH [PRIMER]

All those self sacrificing cards made me think of Lifeline... also Capashen Unicorn, Children of Korlis, and Orcish Settlers. Maybe Masterwork of Ingenuity. Nice deck looks harsh.

The deck right now is perfectly servicable as a R/W midrange archetype, but I get the impression it doesn't really know what it wants to be yet. In adding cards like Boros Reckoner and Spitemare, you've created more payoff when Avacyn transforms from white to red, but those guys seem rather lackluster when you have Light of Sanction or Mark of Asylum on the battlefield. I'd either go further into the "protect all my guys from global damage"-theme and remove the punisher cards or alternatively you could maybe embrace the fact that your creatures will get damaged, in which case you'd want to cut cards like Repercussion. As it is, I feel there are a couple of boardstates where the deck might be it's own worst enemy. Either way, you could use some more non-angel creatures you can sacrifice at will or alternatively some more reliable token producers, possibly in the manabase (Kjeldoran Outpost and Kher Keep seem like good options to me).

There are a couple of cards I don't really see much use for regardless of the theme of the deck. Those include Braid of Fire and Flickerform. I can't see any mana sinks to use the mana provided by Braid of Fire during upkeep. Keep in mind that mana pools empty between turn phases. While I can guess that Flickerform is supposed to be used as a reset button for Avacyn, I'd wager that it's not necessary to flip her back this often. Maybe just play a simple instant speed flicker effect or two if you feel it's important for the deck strategy.

Since most of your creatures have flying and likely won't lose in 1v1 combat, I'd maybe think about playing some sweepers that only hit grounded creatures like Molten Disaster or Fault Line.

Personally, I recommend cutting Boros Reckoner and it's ilk and going for some more damage prevention. That'd suggest the following cards, specifically:

Hi! Nice primer! Reading it gave me the desire to build a similar deck.
I have couple suggestions for you:
