Cathedral Sanctifier Discussion

BlazingAbsol on MONO WHITE BLINK (opinions please)

Kitchen Finks is always nice. How is Cathedral Sanctifier working for you? Seems a bit underpowered.

Unless you like it as an etb effect, I would play Pride Guardian > Cathedral Sanctifier

Yes i will look at lone missionary. But is Cathedral Sanctifier better than that or the soul sisters?

I also like the Concealed Courtyard suggestion but I think I should keep some Vault of the Archangel as a mana sink for the late game. That's also why I have Dark Impostor. I might replace Cathedral Sanctifier with Vampire Nighthawk though.

I've been playing with a mono-white deck with some similar themes. A cheaper, but more restricted version of Dazzling Reflection would be Awe Strike. Other cards worth considering: Cathedral Sanctifier, Well of Lost Dreams, Aetherflux Reservoir, Lone Rider  Flip, Chalice of Life  Flip, Survival Cache, Serra Ascendant, Wall of Reverence, Ajani's Pridemate, and Rhox Faithmender.

First, let me start with I think you have some cool ideas going here. I like your angel theme.Is this meant to be a casual or competitive deck? If you're playing this deck as a casual "have fun with" deck, then great. If you are looking at making this more competitive, then we need to drop your mana curve, focus on more beatdown and get more removal.

I agree with chaosumbreon87. Drop the green completely as it isn't doing much for you except making your mana base more difficult to manage and opening you up to some crappy draws. Making the deck red/white cleans up quite a bit and should smooth out your draws from one game to the next. For competitive you'll need more removal. Condemn, Cavern of Souls, Lightning Helix, and Path to Exile are all good choices.

Now for the cards. Thundersong Trumpeter and Gideon's Lawkeeper are really weak "tap that dude" creatures that just don't provide enough use to really be effective. They don't have haste so you can't use them as anything other than blockers on the turn they enter the battlefield.

Both Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Nahiri, the Harbinger are good card, but you aren't getting that much out of them. You don't have any graveyard recursion, so anything you discard to Nahiri's +2 ability is wasted. Chandra's +1 ability is nice but I think you would get more use out of other cards. I think you would get more use out of mana artifacts or more low cost creatures than you do from the planeswalkers.

I would replace the two Glory of Warfare for two Spear of Heliod. The ++ bonus applies to all of your creatures all of the time and you get an additional removal effect as well.

So, depending on your collection and budget, here's some cards to look at in no particular order. Cathedral Sanctifier, Champion of the Parish, Soul's Attendant, Knight of the White Orchid, Kor Outfitter, Nearheath Pilgrim, Stonewright, Stormblood Berserker, Ranger of Eos, Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Clifftop Retreat, Sacred Foundry, Slayers' Stronghold, Archangel of Tithes, Masako the Humorless, Azorius Arrester, Lyev Decree, Devil's Play, Magma Spray, Boros Charm, Volcanic Geyser, Staggershock, Electrickery and other low-cost cards that provide more utility.

I use Weathered Wayfarer for mana fixing and accelleration in my angel deck. I'll post my casual angel deck build here in the next day or so.

As for your sideboard. I would add a least one more Leyline of Sanctity. I think 4 Runed Halo is too many. Maybe two or three. Consider Vandalblast, Disenchant, Oblivion Ring and some other artifact and enchantment removal spells.

pauldiamond64 I started a deck like that once. The idea was to use Cathars' Crusade and tokens to bulk my Risen Sanctuary. I also had a play set of Cathedral Sanctifier which gives +3 life and I would shuffle it around with Emancipation Angel and Cloudshift. Which also played activated Cathars' Crusade bulking my sanctuary even more. I think I had a Behemoth Sledge in there too.

Roccovsky on milling all day

Do you find you often require the Leyline of Sanctity and Cathedral Sanctifier in game 1? They seem like odd inclusions in a mill mainboard.

If this were my deck, I'd be cheeky and slip in a one-of Phenax, God of Deception. It'd let the Hedron Crabs and Jace's Phantasms do double duty. But that's probably just me.
