Cathars' Crusade Discussion
2 days ago
Nice deck. +1 from me.
- Maybe Falkenrath Noble and Pious Evangel Flip as copy 3 and 4 of Blood Artist
- Phyrexian Arena is also a strong card
- Retribution of the Meek would be a very good wrath for this deck as nearly non of your creatures is effected.
- With Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Darkest Hour and any Sac-Outlet on the table Cathars' Crusade is ridiculous.
- for land additions I would also suggest Caves of Koilos and Marsh Flats

So a few more suggestions that work really well with the token and equipment plan, and some cuts. The new Heavenly Blademaster feels made for this deck. Cathars' Crusade makes every creature lethal. Champion of Lambholt is another good way to make your creatures almost impossible to block. Hero of Bladehold makes tokens and makes your tokens more powerful. Rapacious One and the new Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor might also work like Tana.
You could replace Living Death and Decree of Pain with Austere Command or Retribution of the Meek to kill big creatures while leaving your tokens alive. Elspeth, Sun's Champion does the same and can also make tokens.
You might be putting too much emphasis on recursion from the graveyard. Alesha doesn't have too many good low power targets to reanimate. Praetor's Counsel may be too costly in mana. Bloodline Keeper takes too long to transform since you don't have other Vampires. Has Teysa been performing well for her mana cost? If Temur Sabertooth is meant to protect your creatures, Asceticism might cost less mana overall since you don't have to recast the creature. I assume you're already cutting Solemn Simulacrum and Twilight's Call once the new cards arrive. I'd also cut Golgari Thug, Pyreheart Wolf, maybe Necrogenesis.
I feel that you could cut a Swamp for a Forest since you have more green costs than black. Krosan Verge is also a good fetchland.

I feel like for going wide with tokens Noxious Ghoul, Cathars' Crusade, and Anointed Procession fit really well with your build. Also have you considered Archangel of Thune for the life gain trigger? Awesome build by the way!

Thanks again Despair. I took your suggestions of adding more ramp and swapped out Tenza, Godo's Maul for Mana Crypt since it is useless without Aurelia, the Warleader out. I also dropped Sword of Kaldra for Mana Vault since the exile clause is useless unless against recursion, where I would rather run Rest in Peace and the +5/+5 isn't worth 8 mana. I also dropped Cathars' Crusade for Solemn Simulacrum since it just isn't going to provide enough value at 5 mana compared to ramp and card draw. In light of making it more competitive through "ramp" I also swapped out Hammer of Nazahn for Sigarda's Aid since they both let me auto equip something and Sigarda's Aid is 3 mana cheaper and let's me cast my equipment at the end step before my turn, giving a sort of pseudo-ramp and I figured 3 mana less and the flash clause was better than +2/+0 and indestructible.

I'll second Ghave, Guru of Spores. While you lose access to blue, Ghave lets you go both high and wide and can build a board state very quickly. With sufficient ramp and cards like Cathars' Crusade, you can build an entire army of big beaters in one turn.

I would suggest Sundial of the Infinite which helps you keep the angel tokens permanently, also very fun interaction is Isochron Scepter with an exiled arcane spell. This was you always have a target spell for splicing and don't need to worry about recursion of the host spell or drawing another one to enable further splicing. Since this is a token deck you can also put Anointed Procession and/or Cathars' Crusade. Lastly I think you need at least 2 boardwipes just in case and maybe 3 more lands (you have some hefty cards but only 31 lands).
Hope this helps. Cheers!

I would recommend Cathars' Crusade in a go wide deck.
