Mardu_Maniac on Civic Saber on Alesha, Who ...

Wondering if Civic Saber gives +1/+1 or +3/+3 on Alesha, Who Smiles at Death given that she technically has 3 colours?

I tried running an angel tribal deck using Atraxa too.Based from testing:

  1. I find some angels just doesn't suit Atraxa so cutting some angels for other support cards would benefit the deck.

  2. Just angels just doesn't affect the board much because of their high cmc and low power. Being a beat down angel deck would take a few turns before you can take down one opponent.

  3. I went with Angel Voltron build, I put in good aggressive artifacts and enchantments like Rancor, Civic Saber, Hero's Blade to help pressure opponent's with flying beats.

Hope this input helps

Run Phyresis, just because, and Civic Saber, because on Zurgo it's a permenant +3/0 boost for 2, which goes perfectly with the former

I play Atraxa and I like that you can build with her in so many way.

Atraxa become a 8/4 witch Civic SaberYou don't miss some wrath ? Like Merciless Eviction, Duneblast, or Black Sun's Zenith can be nice with Prolif.

And I agree a bit with buildingadeck, maybe you can try to add more tutors or some cheap removals.(but it depends on your meta)

I disagree about Civic Saber - its quick and cheap to get into play on my commander and makes her an 8/8 flyer that kills players in 3 turns or less.

I rean a lower cost aggro variant of this- relying on Shield of the Oversoul, Clout of the Dominus and Steel of the Godhead with Civic Saber and Blessing of the Nephilim to pump up, and Zur the Enchanter as a one-of. Curved into mantis rider and Lightning Angels where the shroud could really shine. Sedraxis Specter deserves a look as a resilient and powerful threat, and Skyrider Elf is both cheap and big without knights. Hide/Seek is a really powerful tool. I ran Shifting Sky for a while as a mixed pump with Guildscorn Ward, but it isn't great.

Going 3 v 1 does not inherently mean that the playgroup is competitive. For instance, you are somehow lacking Swords to Plowshares in this list. That is a very strange oversight. If you want your deck to be competitive, you need to have early interaction (spells that interact with your opponents on the stack or on the board at cmc 0-3) and a win condition that comes out early enough to finish the game in one or two cards. Or you can make a stax variant that is much grindier, interacting with your opponents with static effects like Tangle Wire or Winter Orb. You also aren't running a single tutor effect, and you're in black. Civic Saber is horrible, and I highly recommend cutting it as well as other things for Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, etc.

Creature beat down like this with Thallids is simply not a competitive list. I suggest looking at this list. While it is a different theme (walkers as opposed to tokens), I firmly believe that a stax variant of Atraxa is better than a beatdown plan, particularly in a competitive environment.

The7thBobba, it's hard for me to say since I don't have much experience working in 5 colors. My initial instinct was that 4 Knight of New Alara, 4 Boros Charm, 4 Might of the Nephilim, and 4 equipment seems like a lot to buff creatures that are already quite overstatted. Civic Saber and Might of the Nephilim in particular seem to be extremely aggressive cards that contrast heavily with the slower pieces of the deck like Chromanticore and Fusion Elemental. If that aggression is part of the primary gameplan, though, then I'd probably just drop most of the cards at 4 CMC or higher.
