Exquisite Archangel Discussion

NuMetal on Thats alot of (double) Damage!!

3 days ago

Exquisite Archangel finde ich nicht gut, da sie den Tod nur minimal herauszögert. Harsh Mentor ist zu random und schlecht. Indulgent Tormentor ist nicht gut, da er dem Gegner die Wahl gibt. Du wirst also nie etwas ziehen. Und "Loss of life" wird nicht durch deine ganzen Karten vervielfacht. Neheb, the Eternal Afflict bringt nichts, da es loss of life und nicht damage ist und die zweite Fähigkeit ist nicht verlässlich genug. Tunnel Ignus ist einfach nur schlecht

Ansonsten sieht's lustig aus :)

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

As a fellow Angel lover (you can see my angel tribal & taxes deck here ), I think you run many angels that are simply not good enough. Angel of Retribution, Radiant, Archangel is too fragile to mass removal, Seraph of Dawn, Seraph of the Suns, Shepherd of the Lost, Requiem Angel, Angelic Field Marshal is useless if you don't have your commander out, and if you have it you really don't need that much having viligance on all your creatures when a lot of them already have it, Exquisite Archangel (if you want this kind of effect I would prefer Resolute Archangel, that does it whenever you want), Herald of War I think is too slow, all of those I think cost too much for what they do, even Radiant, because she is too vulnerable against mass removal, although you could argue that she is good enough, I don't like her that much. I also think some of them like Silver Seraph or Shattered Angel could be removed but I'm fearing that I am going to cut too much and you will end up with less than 100 cards. Also, I'd suggest removing Iona, as hard as it is for me to say, but when my opponents stole it from me for the third time and named white I finally decided is too risky to run her in a monocolored deck.

I also think you are running some inefficient lifegain. Chaplain's Blessing is too weak, you could instead run cards like Blessed Alliance that are far more versatile, or Solemn Offering to mix targeted removal with life gain. Rest for the Weary, Sun Droplet, those ones I think are too ineficient.

Finally, some of the artifacts you run are to make your creatures able to evade more, but I don't think it is necessary when all of them already fly and are enormous, so I would cut Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm. I don't think Whispersilk Cloak is that good taking into account how many enchantments and abilities you have that target your creatures, and Sunbeam Spellbomb isn't good enough if you are not running some kind of graveyard recursion.

Finally, I would cut many of the cards you use to buff up your angels. They are already big, you don't need too many +1/+1 effects when you are always casting 5/5s, 6/6s and 7/7s. That would make Silver Seraph, Path of Bravery, Honor of the Pure, Dictate of Heliod and Light from Within cuttable.

Have you thought about adding Approach of the Second Sun? It's a nice alternate win condition that makes you gain life. I'd also think about including the OG Ajani Goldmane, it was made specifically about lifegain.

I think I will cut Guardian Seraph in favor of Exquisite Archangel. I like Angel of Glory's Rise because during one of my plat tests last night, I was able to bring back a bunch of humans such as Paragon of New Dawns and Grand Abolisher right before I played Avacyn, Angel of Hope

But ya, you should totally build Angel Tribal! I am thoroughly enjoying this deck so far.

Maybe Guardian Seraph? They are both defensive creatures but in my experience Exquisite Archangel is a must-answer card that has greater impact on your life total.

Alternatively, maybe Angel of Glory's Rise? How often are you bringing back humans from your graveyard and are they worth it? It's also the same mana cost so you wouldn't be adding to your curve by swapping.

I think I may have to build an Angel tribal deck after seeing this list! The cards are powerful, have gorgeous art, and they can pack a punch!

Thanks for the feedback! I am surprised with how well this deck has performed so far considering the budget I am working with. Anyways, I considered adding Exquisite Archangel but my problem right now is figuring out which cards to cut. I am considering cutting a Plains or two for some substitution, other than that, I am at a lost. Do you have any suggestions?

Your list looks great! You have all the critical Angel's within reasonable budget. I especially like Aegis Angel and Resolute Archangel here. If you find you need another lifesaver consider Exquisite Archangel.

Since you like Mana Tithe you may also enjoy Rebuff the Wicked especially once your opponents start saving their removal for Avacyn.

Looks like fun!
