Hey Ghosty :)

I had it sideboarded, but brought it back into main. I only like Stasis Snare for it's flash, but in case of Decommission or something like that, I'll have Declaration in Stone ready now. Thanks for the nugget.

How do you feel about my sideboard, Exquisite Archangel in particular?

Well, as a collector of all angels, I'm definitely hoping to stumble across an Exquisite Archangel, and I'll need the masterpiece Platinum Angel at some point.

S'far as cards I want to play with, Indomitable Creativity seems like the perfect balance between janky and actually good for my combo decks.

It seems I voiced my typical "Expansion Update" in a Reddit post. I'll add one to this page soon.

  • Herald of Anguish - He's "not bad" but there's definitely better. The only real value you're getting out of him is the discard effect as the improvise and the activated ability being irrelevant in most builds. He's one of those cards I'd recommend for a casual player as a competent placeholder, though his price will stop me from doing that for a couple of years.

  • Exquisite Archangel - There's better. It doesn't phase most combo decks. Lab maniac only needs to draw another card, most other infinites only need do what they've been doing one more time. If you really want the effect there's always Platinum Angel if you have a way to ditch it at the right time.

  • Freejam Regent - Firebreathing and improvise. Nothing to give a second glance.

I'm really hoping for something juicy soon. I feel as though Kaalia's two or three bombs from having a "definitive" competitive creature roster. This last round of creatures, while interesting, focus around the mechanics of the set. Energy, improvise, and fabricate really don't gel well with what the deck wants to do. It's been sometime since they made an angel, demon, or dragon that's capable of standing on its own. They're still making competent creatures just not on Kaalia relevant bodies. Hell, I'd love if any of the Kaalia-colored Gearhulks were on Kaalia-relevant bodies.

Dude, this deck rocks! I totally can see why you won it all. I found that when I got my fliers out, it put a lot of pressure on my opponent.

I faced off against the Exquisite Archangel.

It's gotta be Quicksmith Spy for me. The U/R deck that it was in was the only time I 4-0'd during the six events I played in, and it was mostly due to this. Drawing a card every turn for basically free is completely insane, especially since the "drawback" is so easily circumvented by targeting an Equipment with the ability, or targeting a late game Renegade Map. This does need at least a few artifacts in order to be good, but those shouldn't be too hard to pick in draft.

Aside from that... Hm. In the last deck I played, I was a really big fan of Quicksmith Rebel, which is just as good as the Spy if not even better. Exquisite Archangel has a very powerful effect, and is definitely worth first picking. Some cards really impressed me (

Favourite AEther Revolt cards

Mythic: Exquisite Archangel (useless in a lot of situations but priceless in some - can see this being decent for Commander)

Rare: Yahenni's Expertise (has revitalised my Control deck)

Uncommon: Ornithopter (there should always be an Ornithopter in every rotation)

Common: Shock (there should always be a Shock in every rotation - I was going through my collection the other day and feeling sad that we currently had no Shock)
