Gisela, the Broken Blade Discussion

drohack on Kaalia call of Brisela

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). It appears I've slightly reversed it and have a "9 by 7" ratio. Some cards also overlap, but I put them in their main use case category.

After looking at the list though I only have 7 categories of cards which means I could look to add a new category by removing some of the weaker cards in each of the existing categories.

Target Protection (10)

Removal (8)

Tutor (9)

Draw (10)

Revive (8)

Utility (9)

Meld (6)

Mana (5 + 35 - 1)

I don't know your budget, but Gideon, Ally of Zendikar seems like a brutal finisher, also possibly Gisela, the Broken Blade. Thalia, Heretic Cathar could also be more tech against aggro decks. And maybe some Dusk / Dawn or Selfless Spirits to deal with sweepers

@NensouHiebara - you and I definitely diverged a bit over the past couple years with card choices. Likely due to meta and playtesting (I have 13 decks now...). But I believe that we're in sync on Balan, Wandering Knight being the best thing since sliced bread for equipment commanders. I opted for Gisela, the Broken Blade for a time for the keyword soup. It's nice to have an option that doesn't get double punished for commander tax and equip costs and is more than viable as a threat himself. Very much looking forward to him taking Gisela's place.

Hammer of Nazahn is another welcome piece to the arsenal. Can't wait to make use of it.

I will explain how I think the Sideboard works, but I might not understand it fully.

To see how the rest of the deck works, look up the Amonkhet Pro Tour final match on YouTube.

Liliana, the Last Hope is expensive because it is the best Planeswalker in this deck. Making unlimited Zombies in a way that can't be stopped, then giving them all a boost due to either Liliana's Mastery or Lord of the Accursed is very difficult to play against.

Hey there! The Gisela, the Broken Blade that got lost weeks ago actually came in today, so I refunded your money on Paypal! No idea what had it so delayed since the envelope looked fine, but who knows. I didn't have a balance, so it's going through e-check. Should clear in 3-5 days. Thanks!

Noctem Well you don't play the card until main 2 and you have gained life and flip it at your end step. It isn't difficult to do. An Exerted Glory-Bound Initiate a single attack of Gisela, the Broken Blade or even Aerial Responder or Shambling Vent with a Always Watching on the board. Its risk reward is worth it and the cost is cheap for what you would be getting.

Alrighty Then

Fist of all, your mana curve is WAY too high for your land base, with this sort of mana cure, you should be at 22 lands at the ABSOLUTE least. Even with a drastically lower curve, you'd still probably need 17 lands at least. Either way, You really shouldn't be running anything over 4 mana.

Here's a list of quick and easy changes.

So firstly you really want to focus this deck on a few key creatures. Angels are notoriously hard to build around as they are all so expensive so I would recommend adopting a prison style deck to bide your time before being able to play your angels. For this you want things like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, and Luminarch Ascension.

As for the creatures, Serra Avenger is an auto include, I would also play Kami of False Hope and Thalia, Heretic Cathar to further slow down your opponent. You probably want Archangel Avacyn  Flip as your angel bomb along with the meld package of multiple Gisela, the Broken Blade and 1 Bruna, the Fading Light and from there use support angels like Angel of Sanctions, Angel of Condemnation, and Emancipation Angel.

You want 4 Path to Exile or an alternative such as Banishing Light or Cast Out for your removal package. You may also want to splash blue for some counters or Geist of Saint Traft (cheap effective creature).

Finally I would say you want to be playing 24-25 lands seeing the mana cost of angels. If you need any help feel free to ask me I love angels.
