Desolation Angel Discussion

timmyt1000 on Angelic Horde

Yeah Desolation Angel really makes people groan when it resolves. I use this when I play with my more casual friends they always have fun.

Muglacious_NiceFaceToad on Angelic Horde

2 months ago

Not yet but I am looking to construct something similar. I'll let you know if I do.

I really like the pro-color element you have going. I run a pro-color Angel Tribal (work in progress) that I have been tweeking for a while and would love to put some of the angels I have kicking around tht didn't make the cut to use! Also I am just discovering Horde and it seems to be the answer to all the really bad tribal decks that never really work well.

I'm excited about;

Desolation Angel looks brutal in horde.

Herald of the Host Herald of the host looks fun!

Iridescent Angel sounds brutal to deal with.

Here are some recommendations based on my tribal deck;

Concerted Effort would probably work really well in this build.

Luminarch Ascension If you worked the rules for it it could be good with a d-6 dice.

Spectra Ward....??? could be good to Iridescent Angel an Avacyn...

Angel of Jubilation is super useful.

Angelic Skirmisher HAS to go in. She is just too good.

Bruna, the Fading Light seems like an auto-include 2-for-1. and if you have bruna why not Gisela, the Broken Blade?

Twilight Shepherd could cause difficulties.

Reya Dawnbringer & Dawnbreak Reclaimer for some recursion. More recursion would probably be brutal.

Anyway I'll stop pestering you and build my own deck lol... Sorry for the wall of text. I'll send you a copy when I do for it's is always good to collaborate eh?

DemonDragonJ on Iconic Masters Announced

3 months ago

Eladamri's Call and Cromat have never been reprinted, so I would like to see them reprinted in this set, and Worldly Tutor also should be here, as well, since it was left out of Eternal Masters in favor of Green Sun's Zenith.

As for iconic creatures, my predictions are as follows:

Angels: it is very safe to presume that both Serra Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath shall be in this set, hopefully, with new artwork for both, and I also would like to see Angelic Arbiter, Shepherd of the Lost, Angel of Jubilation, Pristine Angel, Iridescent Angel, Crypt Angel, Desolation Angel, Angel of Despair, Empyrial Archangel, and Archangel of Thune.

Demons: Lord of the Pit is one of the most iconic demons in the game, but some other excellent choices are Abyssal Persecutor, Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon, Butcher of the Horde, Grinning Demon, Havoc Demon, Herald of Torment, Kagemaro, First to Suffer, Kuro, Pitlord, Lord of the Void, and Xathrid Demon.

Sphinxes: it was not until recently that sphinxes started to become powerful and efficient, but, thankfully, there ave been a number of excellent sphinxes made, recently, including Consecrated Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx, Goliath Sphinx, Guardian of Tazeem, Medomai the Ageless, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, and Sphinx of Uthuun.

Hydras: as with sphinxes, hydras only recently have been well-designed creatures, so some hydras that I would like to see in this set are Apocalypse Hydra, Domesticated Hydra, Genesis Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Kalonian Hydra, Khalni Hydra, Managorger Hydra, Primordial Hydra, Savageborn Hydra, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, and Vastwood Hydra.

Dragons: there are too many dragons for me too list all of them, but it is safe to presume that Shivan Dragon shall be in this set, hopefully with new artwork, and some of my top choices are Moonveil Dragon, Balefire Dragon, Dragon Tyrant, Ebon Dragon, Mirrorwing Dragon, Moltensteel Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, Stormbreath Dragon, Two-Headed Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Vampiric Dragon, Viashivan Dragon, and Hellkite Overlord.

Wow, I certainly typed many card names in this post: I hope that I did not miss any. enter image description here

Spirits on Kaalia of the Vast

Reiver Demon and Desolation Angel don't work in this case.

Really dislike this because of the new Bruna, the Fading Light. No Brisela, Voice of Nightmares for me.

Force_of_Willb on Be You Angels?

Is the goal of the deck to be competitive in legacy or casual fun?

If competitive, the deck will need to be faster. I suggest a reanimate theme with Reanimate, Animate Dead, or Exhume

You can get items into your graveyard quickly with: Putrid Imp, Tireless Tribe, Call the Bloodline, Oona's Prowler or nonbudget cards Entomb or Buried Alive

Then you will need specific angels for match ups

Iona, Shield of Emeria - shuts down any mono colored deck

Angel of Finality - shuts down graveyard decks

Linvala, Keeper of Silence - shuts down lots of creature decks

Maybe try New card Exquisite Archangel - could be good against burn or tendril/storm decks

This card doesn't see play but I like Angel of Jubilation - shuts down fetch lands, causes shocklands to come into play tapped, and makes phyrexian mana need to be paid.

If this is just casual, here are some other budget angels to consider:

Serra Avenger / Angelic Curator - 2CMC angel

Voice of All / Pristine Angel / Iridescent Angel - protection from colors

Angel of Despair - ETB destroy permanent

Magister of Worth / Sunblast Angel / Desolation Angel - ETB wrath effects

Archangel Avacyn  Flip

Happy Brewing.

Well, there's Meta for you. I've never played against Zur the Enchanter.

I say this extremely reluctantly, but... have you considered making this a Kaalia deck? (Upside: Really powerful. Downsides: Very expensive, no one lets you keep her on the battlefield.)

A few suggestions for cards:Flameblade AngelDesolation AngelAngel of DespairDeathpact Angel

Am I reading this right as Angel tribal?

TetrAggressive on Rock & Combo - Karador, Ghost Chieftain Primer!!

Hey Blackerlotus thanks so much for the feedback! I'm sorry I didn't reply I don't really go on Tappedout that much anymore, so I check it pretty scarcely. Anyways, here's my reasoning for some of the cards I use:

  • Spore Frog & Spike Weaver: I use these two as more of a meta-call as they help stifle some very heavily creature based decks that go off earlier than I can set up my board state. At this point Spore Frog is a pet-card of mine so he stays around for novelty alone lol.
  • Desolation Angel: This card's in the deck because it's a recurable land wipe that I can abuse with Crucible of Worlds and Exploration, she also counters Rise of the Dark Realms which is in a good deal of mono-black decks that are in my meta. Magister of Worth is a decent card and I might try it out if and when I get my hands on when.
  • Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, & Necromancy: These three actually used to be in the deck because of the synergy you mentioned with Sun Titan, however somewhere along the way I decided that they weren't valuable enough, I'm not quite sure what triggered this thought process, but I've had the deck a while and at this point a lot of the fine-tuning has come down to meta-calls.
  • Life from the Loam: Definitely a solid card I will most likely run when I get one, the extra land destruction was a recent edition and it's still be playtested.
  • Sensei's Divining Top: I think I'll keep this bad boy, it's not contesting many other turn one drops and it provides extra hand sculpting alongside Sylvan Library that has proven to be quite useful, as unfortunately Karador's color pie doesn't have the strongest card advantage.

Thanks so much for the opinions though! I like your Karador list a lot and made sure to +1 it!
