Gisela, the Broken Blade Discussion

Have you tested with Beacon of Immortality (Explorers of Ixalan) or Beacon of Unrest? Gisela, the Broken Blade (From the Vault: Transform) might be cool. I'm not sure you need any of the lifelink-effect enchantments, but they're always out there, as well.

Have fun playing!

I'm looking for a precedent to determine how cards interact with Grusilda, Monster Masher when it comes to spells like Brand or effects like Homeward Path.

If I take a creature from my graveyard and a creature from an opponent's graveyard with Gruisila, who is considered the creature's owner? I'm hoping to find some rulings regarding something like I own Gisela, the Broken Blade and my opponent owns Bruna, the Fading Light and a Homeward Path effect is activated after they're merged into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares as some basis of how this applies. So far I've come up empty handed.

If you combined Murderous Redcap and Geralf's Messenger you'd have a single creature with both undying and persist. We can do this in black border by having Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Cauldron of Souls, and Brisela, Voice of Nightmares. In the black border world, both abilities would trigger, but the first one to resolve would return both cards, Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade to the battlefield with either a +1/+1 counter or a -1/-1 counter on each of them (same type of counter), with the second trigger doing nothing as neither card was there for it to return. Why would the silver border case of a mashed Murderous Redcap and Geralf's Messenger work differently with the triggers only returning one each?

I like this theme.

Is your playgroup friendly to combos and quick wins? If so, Felidar Sovereign might be a good inclusion along with Exquisite Blood.

Serra Ascendant might be a good creature to include along with Archangel of Thune, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Gisela, the Broken Blade, and Victory's Herald.

Beacon of Immortality might be a fun sorcery to play off of an artifact like Aetherflux Reservoir, too.

Its looking better already though!

Archangel of Tithes isnt as good as the card Ghostly Prison.

Raise the Alarm would be a huge help and might actually make this viable.

Entreat the Angels could be considered. Nice thought on Terminus, I would main board it though.

Have you tested with an Aetherflux Reservoir?

Have fun!

PhotogenicParasympathetic mmm well I have had a mardu Angel deck in the past. Are you only looking for mono white ones? I believe I have most of the good ones except linvala, so like Tariel, Gisela, Aurelia, the other flip avacyn etc. The only two im interested in keeping are the Angel of hope and tithes really, here is a list:

Gisela, the Broken Blade, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Archangel Avacyn, Restoration Angel, Aurelia, the Warleader, Admonition Angel, Bruna, the Fading Light, Herald of War(foil), Akroma, Angel of Fury, Serra Avenger, Radiant, Archangel, Emeria Angel, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls(comm, FTV, oversized versions), Anya, Merciless Angel, Angel of Despair, Exquisite Archangel, Reya Dawnbringer, and like 10 others under a dollar.

chadsansing on Kaalia of the Vast Ruthless Dictatorship

I really like Angelic Accord and Eternal Thirst. I wonder also about Archangel of Thune and Gisela, the Broken Blade for life gain.

Winter Orb seems like it would draw a lot of hate on top of Kaalia of the Vast. Would you consider more political cards like Vow of Duty, Vow of Lightning, or Vow of Malice? Or is your local playgroup competitive enough to enjoy an orb now and again?

With a few more rocks like Chromatic Lantern and Fellwar Stone or Worn Powerstone, you might have the fixing and ramp to cast your creatures in addition to cheating them into play, which might make it even better to play more creatures and fewer other types of spells. I try to do that to avoid playing from the control seat with this deck - my playgroup hates on Kaalia enough.

If you'd like to see another creature suite, check out Snow-Covered Kaalia. Rimescale Dragon is my favorite there, hence the snow-covered basics.

Have fun building & playing!
