History of Benalia Discussion

magicsheep on UW Angel Control Deck

I would use Dive Down to protect your creatures without having to rely on counter spells. Against aggressive decks, Authority of the Consuls is realistically the best protection you can get. Fumigate and Settle the Wreckage would help against hordes of creatures from your opponent.

Alternatively, History of Benalia might help you stall until you can get your Angels out and your deck running. Right now, the deck plays almost like UW control, but the issue is that UW control is struggling against aggro.

Good job avoiding creatures with 1-point toughness, as they die easily to aggro decks because of Goblin Chainwhirler.

I don't really know the correct approach to tweaking the deck, but I do look forward to seeing this deck evolve! It is uniquely themed and has an interesting construction. Great job Archfear!

If History of Benalia is too much for one card (granted, it will drop significantly after standard so I understand), then some of the planeswalkers I would suggest would also probably be too much. However, here would be some that might be decent in the deck: Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Goldmane, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and Sorin, Solemn Visitor. The main theme I tried to keep there were things that can buff your creatures. Whether or not they would be worthwhile in the deck, I"m not sure. But these are the ones that I think could have a decent consideration.

Maybe Vivien is good in elves or merfolk ? she could be protected by small creatures and help them find other small creatures

+1 search for creatures either for Marwyn, the Nurturer, Llanowar Elves Steel Leaf Champion, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca Merfolk Branchwalker Jadelight Ranger, Thrashing Brontodon Carnage Tyrant

-3 destroy Artifact( Heart of Kiran Wheatherlight, Blackblade Reforged, Enchantment History of Benalia, Hidden Stockpile all the flip enchantment from the Ixalan block Search for Azcanta  Flip, Legion's Landing  Flip Journey to Eternity  Flip etc.. and Creatures with flying Glorybringer,Lyra Dawnbringer, Demonlord Belzenlok.

-8 get a emblem which gives all you're creatures +2/+2 trample, vigilance and indestructible.

the one thing i look forward to in this set is if this card is a "hiddenpowercreep" it's always those little details which decides if it's the real deal or not :)

Would Primevals' Glorious Rebirth be worthwhile since this is a casual deck? You could include some planeswalkers in here to make it a little more useful. Definitely helps if you decide to put in Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. My advice would be to switch out some of the Call the Cavalrys for History of Benalia. The Saga gives a stronger presence on the board for less mana.

For anthems I would suggest Honor of the Pure. While not a knight it's much less colored mana to cast, and it affects all but one creature. If you decide to go the Haakon route then maybe the creature knight would be better.

History of Benalia is too good not to run 4 in knight tribal.

I added two History of Benalia and I think you’re right, could even go to three. I also like the idea of first strike / double strike. Going on with history and dropping kwende Dane turn can be insane. Alternate plan; one of the knights of grace/malice or Danita equipped with forebearer’s blade then drop kwende. Or just get wide then finish with history.

The lack of History of Benalia seems... incorrect.

You have a couple of Creatures that can do extra stuff if you used more than one colour. I will list them and the colour you would need to add:

Knight of Grace -

Shalai, Voice of Plenty -

Your deck has a bit of a Knight theme going on, so I could help you change your mana base to , and you could add some Knight of Malice and some extra Knight of Grace to your deck. I would go with 4x of each.

You could also add some Josu Vess, Lich Knight, and the excellent History of Benalia.

In my opinion you don't get much value out of these cards (or they aren't legal):

1x Cathar's Shield
1x Gilded Lotus
1x Mox Amber
1x Sensei's Divining Top
1x Board the Weatherlight

I would replace them all.

I think you said you are playing this casually with friends. What kind of decks are they playing?

You have to build for your "meta", which means you have to build your deck so that it can deal with what everyone else in your group is playing.
