Herald of War Discussion

DRmagic2017 on Karlov of the Ghost Council Lifegain

1 week ago

Hello! I've got some ideas about your deck. As I understand your tactics is to gain life each turn in order to activate Karlov's ability. In this case you don't need cards like Herald of War - she doesn't have anything connected with life-gain theme.
You have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. So why should you just sacrifice your creatures to activate her abilities without any other effect? Let's get more profit by adding Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble. Then I'd recommend to add Felidar Sovereign as a wincon. Ajani's Pridemate is another useful card for a life-gain deck - it gets counters almost each turn. Serra Ascendant is also extremely powerful. Tymna the Weaver helps with card advantage.
Then artifacts. Whip of Erebos - without a doubt. Loxodon Warhammer - this is a classic card. Eternity Vessel - I think you can get some profit from it. Venser's Journal - it's very useful with Necropotence: unlimited draw engine, no maximum hand size and you gain life each turn. Not sure about your Armillary Sphere - Burnished Hart seems better. Filigree Familiar also looks interesting: life-gain + card advantage. And probably Elixir of Immortality?
I hope my ideas were useful. Good luck and have fun!

If you're trying to make a modern deck you can't have Belbe's Portal or Sol Ring. If you are trying to make an all angel deck I would put in Herald of War. It might be difficult to proc Emeria, The Sky Ruin with only 10 plains in the deck, I would recommend taking out two and also the Buried Ruin. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is another really good land for monocolored angels. Your lowest creature drop is 4 so maybe some more removal? Such as more Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile.

You should also try to add in far more control based spells and less angels, you don't need 20+ creatures that are going to average over 4 mana. Try to mix humans with angels to best utilize Herald of War.

I actually have a really good angel deck that I use quite often. Herald of War, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Platinum Angel, and lots of removal. I added in Mikaeus, the Lunarch to pile up counters on herald of war to make my Angels come into play cheap. It usually gets my Platinum Angel out for 4 mana or less. I added some human cards to the mix that offer removal. Banisher Priest is an example. Add in Path to Exile and you can control the board long enough to get out angels.

Hit me up if you want more advice on Angels.

No Herald of War? Grand Abolisher is great to keep your opponent from countering your expensive creatures, tho I see you also have cavern.

i guess Herald of War isn't needed but without it you might want Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to help ramp your mana since the angels are all expensive.

Tiadon777 I have a Herald of War but I had to make some decisions and I felt like other cards fit better in the deck.

I feel like Herald of War would be useful in here, and i would put Birds of Paradise in replace of Elvish Mystic. Since you included humans in this deck Angelic Overseer would be a viable option.
