Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

loreleaf on Prison Angels

While I'm not that familiar with Angels, I have a pretty good understanding or Prison Style type decks.

Here are some cards I would consider in your build for the prison aspect. Quantities vary based on how much control you want:



  • 4 Flagstones of Trokair - Yep Legendary, no down side as it brings a plains with it when you replace it and it dies.

Misc Value Cards:


  • I would put 2 Rest in Peace in the mainboard as it screws with so many decks in the field.
  • <3 the Runed Halo's and Paths in the main.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion kinda seems like a weird inclusion for a 'vampire' tribe. I might replace that with Tainted Remedy.

Alright first of all, you would benefit greatly from going all in on stax and synergies with atraxa's vigilance/lifelink. I have no experience myself with Hermit Druid, so I can't judge the efficiency of the Doomsday/Hermit Druid line, yet I will reccomend to take this out (If its not working that is) to go more all in on stax, which will severely hinder fast decks and pretty much all decks hopefully :3

Thanks for the suggestions! Now Elspeth, Sun's Champion may be a bit harder to add, I will definitely find room for Serra Ascendant because you're right, it's broken, especially in a deck like this. I am thinking of removing Lingering Souls in order to put it in, what do you think?

I would find a way to fit in Wall of Omens here, if I were you. Not only a 0/4 for 2, it has defender so it benefits from your other creatures and lets you draw a card. This card draw should not be underestimated. I would play Wall of Omens over Wall of Faith, and Im not sure if Endless Horizons is that great here. I would only run Endless Horizons if you're planning to run a pretty low number of lands, or if it combo's well with another card (even though it combo's here with Ghirapur Orrery). If you want to run more tokens, you could find a way to play Extraplanar Lens maybe, it works well with Ghirapur Orrery and Endless Horizons, and is extremely good with spells with in their mana cost, which most token spells are. If you go that route, you could try Secure the Wastes or Entreat the Angels and maybe soem token pump spells like Intangible Virtue or Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

Good luck with your deck!

I like the mill combo. maybe you could fit in a token generating planeswalker? Elspeth, Sun's Champion ? hm? hmmmm? yeeeeaaaa. you also need 4 Sandsteppe Citadel !

If it's in your budget, Serra Ascendant is great. for a 6/6 flying lifelink is borderline broken. One of the main reasons souls sisters is a deck. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is an easy, reliable finisher, and 3 creatures a turn + 2 maybe 3 soul sisters is a good way to stop anything from happening. Cool deck, i like the use of Mentor of the Meek and Essence Warden, dont see that much. +1.
