Thanks!

Definitely some good color hate in green (e.g., Veil of Summer). Animar would be sweet, and it would be fun to surprise people that it wasn't a morph deck. Definitely would hurt the budget goal though. I thought about Jeskai, too, since white can get you cards like Story Circle and Eight-and-a-Half-Tails.

My thought is that blue is pretty much essential to this archetype, but other colors are optional. I've ordered the cards I need, so it will be one of the first decks I play once it's safe to play Magic with friends again.

While Jori En isn't very flashy, and there are other Izzet commanders that might even be more on-theme, the card draw is important. With all the janky color change spells, I wasn't able to include as much draw as I would have wanted, so having a source on a cheap commander will be important to keeping the deck going.

Based on Eight-and-a-Half-Tails:

The Nine-Tailed Fox

Legendary Planeswalker - Tails

The Nine=Tailed Fox has protection from white.

+1: Until your next turn, either permanents you don't control, or spells you don't control become white.

-3: Exile target nonwhite permanent.

-9: You get an emblem with "You and permanents you control have protection from white." and ": Target spell or permanent becomes white until end of turn."

I'd like a common artifact enchantment.

This is great but... why not Eight-and-a-Half-Tails as Commander?

A few suggestions - food for thought.

Kismet > Imposing Sovereign. It's higher CMC so it doesn't come out as fast, but it's also harder to remove. Does more work / better late game draw.

Conqueror's Flail is great. Redundant with Grand Abolisher and harder to remove.

Kusari-Gama is awesome in voltron decks; puts the defending player in a bind - chump block and lose all their creatures, or don't block and lose the game... (For this or the flail, I'd prob remove Golem Gauntlets. By the time you have enough equipment out for it to matter, Balan will already be a 1-shot.)

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails. Mono-white staple. So good.

In my experience, is a Force Multiplier. It makes other colours better, but by itself it has serious gaps that can be exploited by the opponents easily. So in multi-colored decks, it provides much needed utility and redundancy, but those same factors aren't present when there is no other colour to bounce off of.

This, of course, said by the guy currently tweaking a Eight-and-a-Half-Tails deck.

Hi epartica,

Thank you for your feedback! Windswept Heath and Flooded Strand are in here mostly for filtering purposes. We filter lands out of the deck so that we need less actual lands and thereby slightly increase the chance of drawing something other than lands when we already have enough of them.

Idyllic Tutor is actually due to be replaced. We recently noticed it's not doing that much for us and we were thinking maybe Scroll Rack would be a more useful addition. We are thinking about writing a primer for this deck. When we do, we will probably also make this replacement.

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is in here to protect Avacyn from getting exiled; well over half of all the most common exile spells are (at least partly) white, so we felt this was a good addition. And when an exile spell (or maybe some sort of forced, targeted sacrifice) is of a different colour, well that's what Tails' second ability is for :)

So far both Mox Opal and Chrome Mox have been working well for us. The deck contains 21 artifacts in order to make the use of Opal a reality. Evicting a white permanent for Chrome can be annoying, but we've experienced often that a game-state could be turned in our favour because of it.

We're not sure whether we have an Hour of Revelation, but if we do it will definitely replace Planar Cleansing. Thanks for the tip!

Regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Love the deck NV_1980, always happy to see another deck with a love for angels! Before I give suggestions I would like to ask about some cards and why you chose to add them in your deck. Also love Pariah such an underrated card!

The first one are both Windswept Heath and Flooded Strand as a mono color deck why do you want these lands?

Second is Idyllic Tutor you don't seem to have to many enchantments, are there any that stand out to you?

Third is Eight-and-a-Half-Tails even though you can make something have protection from white that won't save you from a board wipe because nothing is targeting it. Unless you do something else with this card I'm not sure it will do much for you.

Lastly, the Chrome Mox and Mox Opal I find these conditions sometimes hard to meet because white has horrible card draw so I wanted to ask if these are still working out for you.

After making my angel deck I find that mono white biggest problem is card draw but your control in this deck is solid, which stops a lot of faster decks and anything that might hurt you on your turn. I have plenty of board wipe suggestions to give to you for instance Hour of Revelation is a direct upgrade to Planar Cleansing.
