PartyJ on First try

Welcome on T/O!As the member above said, get a higher land count. Otherwise you would experience mana screws most of the time.

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.



PartyJ on Angels the best

Nice seeing an Angels theme pop up. I had to look, since I love playing Angels too.

Maybe I can still be of any help while I am here. Did you think of these options:

It looks promising, but I think you should put some cheaper creatures in there to crew the vehicles sooner!

Maybe 2 more Gearshift Aces and add 4 Trusty Companions.

You could also put a few Mountains in there to add guys like Renegade Wheelsmith, Depala, Pilot Exemplar, and Veteran Motorist!

It may also be good to take out some of the expensive creatures. Wispweaver Angel and Airdrop Aeronauts are fun together, but they cost a lot of mana and don't work too well with anything else in the deck. I do think Exquisite Archangel is worth keeping, though!

Spirits Thanks for the ideas - after looking at your comments, I would have to agree with those critiques, so I added Balefire Dragon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Deathless Angel and Exquisite Archangel, and dropped Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls and Duelist's Heritage. I'll give it a run this way and see how it performs. There are a couple other tweaks included as well - hopefully it can keep up with my Animar and Leovold decks this way. Thanks again.

Angel's Trumpet is an oldie but goodie.

Phyrexian Unlife + Delaying Shield/Melira, Sylvok Outcast combo might work here if you go hardcore and find yourself losing life too quick.

Eternity Vessel and Exquisite Archangel help in that regard as well.

Having an indestructible (cough Stuffy Doll) block with stuff like Godsend with cards like Defensive Formation to do epic stuff.

And lastly, stuff like Avatar of Hope + Indestructibility / Darksteel Plate / Spirit Mantle

I think Tooth and Nail, Craterhoof Behemoth, and Sunforger are things you have to put in. They're just too good.

I think you need some more ramp like Weathered Wayfarer, Land Tax, Farseek, and Exploration to help accelerate your plan further. Ancient Tomb should also help.

Some of the creatures I think you need to cut are Woolly Thoctar, Angel of Deliverance, Exquisite Archangel, and Tyrant's Familiar You have enough fatties already and you have a really small amount of removal. Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Krosan Grip, and Wear should be enough.

I think you might need an infinite for this deck, too. Midnight Guard+Presence of Gond creates infinite 1/1s.

@ticked-off-squirrel: Ah, you're right. As you said, in your example it's not dealing damage, but there are some examples (some of which I played myself very enthusiastically, such as Agonizing Demise).

Whether it's lethal damage or a destroy effect destroying the creature actually makes a difference, which is something I initially overlooked and koylucumert therefore might be interested in: For example, if you're at 2 life, control an Exquisite Archangel and your opponent casts Cinder Cloud, your Angel will be destroyed (as in put in the graveyard by the effect, not by SBAs), then deal 5 damage to you. There is no Angel on the battlefield anymore at the time the damage is dealt, so it's replacement effect won't work and you will end up at -3 life.

Defiant Bloodlord would make a fun addition, since going back to your starting life from Exquisite Archangel's trigger counts as gaining life :)
