Emeria Angel Discussion
1 week ago
I'll go through your update and cards you're thinking of adding/taking out soon. I just had a thought though - what about Emeria Angel ? Not a bird, but they are bird factories. You don't have enough instants/sorceries for Murmuring Mystic to pay off, but the bird token strategy could be an interesting build for working with the anthems and abilities.

Paradox Engine Worst case scenario, you play the card with not enough pieces to go off and someone instantly krosan grips the card.
Jaddi Offshoot You have more efficient ways of generating Lifegain.
Mikaeus, the Lunarch Isn't impactful enough when it hits the board or when it stays needs paradox engine to be abused and there are easier ways to go about this effect.
Oblivion Ring Excellent cheap removal but unfortunately there are better removal spells that are available
Elspeth, Knight-Errant Not impactful, deck isn't primarily combat focused.
Avenger of Zendikar No brainer
Rampaging Baloths Works with your landfall theme, this is easily abusable with an instant payoff.
Blackblade Reforged You have enough flyers to abuse this equipment easily
Admonition Angel More landfall goodness (with exile)
Quarantine Field removal
Titania, Protector of Argoth Insurance
Sword of the Animist Landfall redundancy

I'm also building this in paper. I'm adding two Emeria Angel and one Primeval Titan to the mainboard, Nissa, Vital Force to the sideboard and cutting 1 Stony Silence there. Any thoughts? Best of luck with your build.

Last night I was involved in two multiplayer games of magic against the same two guys. The first game player A; with his version of Temur Energy sits down to an aggressive start with an intended combo-y finish. The second, player B, a mish-mash blue/black aetherborn/servo tokens energy deck. I’m playing an Emeria Angel + Knight of the Reliquary deck that uses Zealous Persecution as my main difference maker, and lots of 1/1 tokens (on a side note; great place for the new Serra Angel generator, Lingering Angels? Raise the Angels? Wut?)
So that game goes fairly smoothly, B runs short on mana and only draws his fourth when I’ve got 10 birds and two angels. Player A has a fair army, but isn’t keeping up with the landfall shenanigans and I eventually draw into Vault of the Archangel and put the game out of reach of their fair, recently standard but very casual decks. I concede my deck was much stronger than theirs, but they left that game not feeling too bad and somewhat impressed with the synergy (ie; drop a land, make a bird, Mentor of the Meek trigger, draw a card, gain a life off Suture Priest.)
Now comes the second game. A little background first;
I joined this group roughly a year ago. At the time their existing group was evolving. The core of the group is made up of a bunch of guys late thirties - early forties who have either come back to the game or are new to it. Player A is a returning player. When I came to town, their were three guys exiting moving south to “try to go pro,” younger guys, early twenties-ish. Im told later that Player A was so excited and that he was boasting about how he was going to be the best player in the group now...So I show up to the first day I’m invited and it’s an Ixalan draft. It goes ok in a large group and I finish top 4 with a hodgepodge of creature types. Notably player A finished ahead of me. So at the end of the night one of the guys that’s going to be leaving and I start up a conversation about some deck types we’re interested in based on the new cards, and card names start to fly. You know the conversations, where any uninitiated onlooker goes “wtf are these guys talking about?!?” Anyway, Player A gets a bit concerned he may not be the guy to beat moving forward.
Fast forward to game two; I sit down with deck-large;the-mad-king-of-tristram (which I acknowledge might be a bit anti-social for the environment, but it’s my favourite deck and I’ve only played it twice, maybe three times, in the last year including last night.) A is playing the pre-con cats basically right out of the box into sleeves, and B is playing a tweaked Edgar Markov (but not so tweaked as to be any more threatening than it is out of the box.) They’re probably a bit outmatched here. The first few turns nothing happens of relevance, since I kept a hand with no rocks just an Ancient Tomb. Turn three I play Font of Mythos planning to curve into Archfiend of Ifnir on turn four. So A plays Qasali Pridemage and lets everybody draw the two extra cards until his next turn comes around, in which he doesn’t swing with his cat but he does sacrifice it to blow up the Font so B and I don’t get the two cards. Well, after that the Archfiend does a fairly reasonable job suppressing the board state and the two non-blue decks don’t find anything to kill it or Nekusar until eventually I Lim-Dul's Vault for Megrim, kill his Leonin Relic-Warder that had stolen my Memory Jar and crack it. A dies and B is left with three life, he Merciless Evictions my creatures away and I top deck Wheel of Fortune for the win.
Well, as soon as A dies he packs up his deck, throws his stuff in his bag and says “I don’t like playing with you.” I start to say I understand how that’s not fun for him and how I rarely play this deck, and he stands up, leaves his beer on the table and goes. B and I finish the last turn, chat for a bit and leave.
So am I in the wrong for playing a deck too powerful for my environment? feedback from other group members goes something like “your decks are so interesting and we get better by seeing how you play your turns and you don’t gloat when you win or sulk when the whole table turns on you.”
On the other hand, this guy who is 40+, throws salt and shade every time someone blows up a permanent or even throws an opportune attack in his direction. I do consider him the only other player who is a threat though, and have been known to do things like blow up his only Forest (and green source) that he just put a Fertile Ground on...I view it as a learning experience but I also see how some people could consider me an a**hole...
What do you guys think?

Emeria Angel if you play a plains is the best I could find.

Ended up swapping Emeria Angel > Shalai, Voice of Plenty, the Fumigate > Rout, the Selvala, Heart of the Wilds > Aetherflux Reservoir, the Courser of Kruphix > Odric, Lunarch Marshal, and Hammer of Purphoros > Fires of Yavimaya. Still unsure how to fit in Sunbird's Invocation and/or Ulvenwald Tracker.

I agree with the Emeria Angel swap as Shalai, Voice of Plenty is bonkers. also agree with the Lightning Greaves swap but the rest I'm not sure they are better, especially the The Immortal Sun. don't take that card out but if you do I want it lol

Finding the build either dumps the hand quickly then durdles, or struggles to hit the top end without mana doublers. To smooth out the build a little more considering the following changes: Emeria Angel for Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Fumigate for Rout, The Immortal Sun for Sunbird's Invocation, Courser of Kruphix with Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds with Ulvenwald Tracker, Hammer of Purphoros with Fires of Yavimaya and maybe swap Lightning Greaves for Swiftfoot Boots as the Shroud is problematic at times.
