The word 'additional' is so that players will know that the effect is cumulative with other effects (like Sage of Fables or Festerhide Boar), instead of an overriding effect.

Biomancer works with all creatures.

Hey also Festerhide Boar would probs be a good swap for Birds of Paradise (because it's not angel or boar). Also I'd sideboard Warthog and Zodiac Pig for against black decks.

Well Snap157 Undying Evil was definitely a card I considered however the aim of the deck is to make your creatures immortal and Undying Evil only works for 1 kill spell. I considered making the deck different by running that and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed however that would defeat the purpose of having some of the undying cards. Of course you could switch the undying cards for cards with morbid, such as Skirsdag High Priest however many cards with morbid just give the creatures +1/+1 counters, such as Festerhide Boar which would then not allow undying to work defeating the entire purpose of having the morbid cards in the first place. Of course the argument could be made that we do not really want our Blood Artist and Emrakul's Evangel to die but we run Altar's Reap and Eldritch Evolution in order to reliably get new ones. Additionally, while making sure Blood Artist stays alive and gaining a 2nd use of Emrakul's Evangel will be usefull we can still win without it especially since they have had to use a kill spell, or in the case of Emrakul's Evangel multiple 3/2s we are still in a good position. But of course please feel free to try out the deck any way you want

From Gatherer:7/13/2016 Only activated and triggered abilities on the stack are countered. Static abilities of objects remain unaffected, and activated and triggered abilities of objects may be activated or may trigger again later in the turn. Spells and abilities that have already resolved arent affected.

You will exile any and all spells (both your own and your opponent's).
It will counter the ability of the planewalker. However, it will not undo the change in loyalty, because that is part of the cost, not the effect, of the ability.
It will stop triggered abilities such as Civic Wayfinder's, but not replacement effects such as Festerhide Boar.

Great ideas! Thanks, Gift of Immortality seems solid with the right mana base. I like the idea of having the newts come back for free each turn for more abuse :]

I'm not sure I'm ready to cut the Treasured Finds yet as they help return the Bubbling Cauldron if it gets removed.

Any suggestions on replacement cards? I'd be willing to cut Festerhide Boar for the right playset as he doesn't do a whole lot with angel tokens flying around.

No data for this card yet.
