Ethereal Armor Discussion
3 days ago
Hey, man. Finally got the chance to look at it, thanks for linking it to me. Here are my suggestions:
There are a few really good upgrades you can make on the cheap. I'd say almost all the upgrades below are strictly better except Divine Visitation which is new to MtG, since it's a part of the new Guilds of Ravnica block. Trading out Sigil is just personal preference.
- Swiftfoot Boots for Lightning Greaves
- Sigil of the Empty Throne for Divine Visitation
- Prison Term for Conclave Tribunal
- Kemba's Skyguard for Boreas Charger
- Ajani's Sunstriker for Burnished Hart
- Worn Powerstone for Thought Vessel
You've got too many enchantments eating up space for things that are more important like your land base. White has a really hard time ramping and tends to be the most costly color, so you want to draw as much of it as possible. I'd aim for 35 lands minimum, but 36 is probably preferable. Every land counts.
- Angelic Gift
- Cradle of Vitality
- Curse of the Forsaken
- Ethereal Armor
- Luminarch Ascension
Six of the eight add-ins below are lands. You need a hard to deal with board wipe like Wrath of God and I'm really surprised you didn't immediately go for Riot Control, since it's a table staple. If you really don't want it, I'd go straight for the Path to Exile.
- Windbrisk Heights
- Terrain Generator
- 2x Plains
- Myriad Landscape
- Mistveil Plains
- Wrath of God
- Riot Control
Mono-colors can get some crazy mana numbers going, but white has terrible ramp, cards like Land Tax and Thawing Glaciers will help you get lands on the board, while the multiplier artifacts will keep your mana plentiful.

Have you thought about just making this into a boggles deck? It’d be basically the same thing with different creatures - hexproof ones that can’t be targetted.
Boggling it it would skyrocket this deck from a casual brew to acompetitive nightmare. Have a look at these cards:

Ethereal Armor is on the list if that’s the one you were thinking of.

I've spent some time switching between the two. I'm currently running Empyrial Armor as you can get a lot of damage in quickly with Necropotence. Ethereal Armor is more consistent but is more tricky to set up. Both are fine choices and if you want to go more in on voltron you could even run both.

Nice deck, your construction reminds me of my first version which was more Enchantress-draw based. Keep in mind that in those days not all cards in your deck where available. You can find that deck over here: [Rafiq 1.0] Enchantress Draw
Enchantments and Auras
There are a few enchantments i'd like to mention which I tried in my decks aswell and did not make it to the final cut (or at least the deck how I play it nowadays).
Armadillo Cloak I used to run this and also Unflinching Courage but I dropped them because in my playgroup people tend to scoop when you strike them lethal so you don't get the advantage of the lifelink.
I think you should replace these cards with cards who give better 'unblockable' bonus for instance Infiltrator's Magemark or Spirit Mantle who have a low CMC. Or maybe Drake Umbra which cost more but also gives better bonus.
Further your creature base. I also have tried cards like Herald of the Pantheon but I rather use a general ramp card than an card that only affects your enchantments. Same for Kor Spiritdancer who only triggers on auras. I would consider Knight Exemplar and Umbra Mystic who both help protecting your Commander.
Also I am not a fan of the Legendary-Enchantment Creatures. Bestow cost are mainly too high to cast and I think there are better options available. But if you want to stick to that theme that's okay and then you might consider Thassa, God of the Sea.
I see no planeswalkers in your deck and Bant has a few which really juice this deck up. One I am allready playing myself and the other one is on my wants-list. I suggest to try Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Estrid, the Masked they can be smashing. And if you are adding planeswalkers Shalai, Voice of Plenty might be a nice add.
You really need to add this one: Hunter's Insight this is a crazy card drawer in your deck. And I like cards like: Vines of Vastwood, Invigorate and Might of the Nephilim for the surprise (aka lethal) hit. They are cheap to cast and speed up the game.
Well this is all for now. I might review your deck later again. Maybe you can review mine in the latest version: [Rafiq 2.0] To Serve & Protect [cEDH]

Aarakocra, yes you are right concerning the birds. I have a deck that actually uses both now just for the likelihood of opening hand card draw. The Ethereal Armor is one of my favorite white enchantment based boost cards. Not only does it provide a +1/+1 boost per each enchantment you control, it also offers first strike, all for only one white mana. When used in the right deck it can get rather out of hand. As to what to cut, my personal recommendation would be to cut out one Sleep and both Take Vengeance and try running three Ethereal Armor in its place. I like the deck set up otherwise as it has a nice amount of control.
