Avacidal_maniac on Does anyone else get targeted ...

5 days ago

So I used to run a Glissa, the Traitor jank deck where it would just recur stuff to try and eventually ramp into big creatures like Darksteel Colossus or a praetor. that deck got targeted until I eventually had to retire it. Reason was because one of the big creatures was Blightsteel Colossus, which i can understand why people hate that one but it was only one out of 99 and I only ever cast it once, new deck I made is Avacyn, Angel of Hope angel tribal. That one is being hated out so much the only permanents I ever seem to have are lands until they get bounced by capsize or similar effects- for reference my playgroup use the following decks Inalla, Archmage Ritualist combos, the only way this deck wins is through going infinite, most of them revolve around making infinite hasters with Inalla's ability, and i do have Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Blind Obedience to try and slow it down but based on my current predicament they don't last 2 seconds before they get blown away. another uses either Kaalia of the Vast beat down or Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury elf tribal. this guy wins the most and people tend to listen to him whenever he tells them to do anything even though I try the same thing and I get killed within the next turn cycle. the third uses Brago, King Eternal stax. somehow he never seems to get targeted either and if i do manage to play a mana rock to try and get my angels out and if it sticks, he always seems to have a way to shut it down be it a Null Rod or Lavinia of the Tenth

I have made several changes to the deck to try and stop these from happening but it doesn't seem to fix anything. I have tried toning my deck down despite the fact I have never won a game with this deck before. Didn't work. I'm not sure what to do, I need some help

Atrabilogie I don't blame you- it's something I never knew about morph creatures myself until recently :) Akroma is definitely the most powerful option of them all.

Ephara, God of the Polis is definitely a hit or miss card - generally speaking I am able to eventually bring her online as a creature, once the board has really been developed, but it does take a while. Unless you get Flickerwisp, Lavinia of the Tenth, Venser, the Sojourner, or Detention Sphere out along with her own devotion, it can be pretty challenging otherwise. The biggest benefit I have found for having Ephara is as a card draw engine, which is one that once it gets going, can really help find your combo pieces and lock out the opponent even sooner. The card draw also happens to help enable her devotion even quicker, but having her as a creature is more of a side benefit.

That being said, Ephara can be pretty slow, as it takes at least a couple of turns before you start to get benefit from her. I think it'd be perfectly acceptable to go down to 1x or even 0x in the mainboard, in favor of other spells with faster impact. It's often one of the first cards I swap out for a sideboard card anyways. I think I'm just still attached to her, since she's one of the first gods I ever pulled :)

I REALLY like your deck. By using things from your side it actually beats the monstrous Affinity archetype !

I tried it with Momentary Blink instead of Cloudshift and it works way much better for the long run with its flashback.I didn't understand why you've put Red Akroma in this deck so I just changed it to the white in my list.Feel free to explain to me why you've chosed it !

Here's a different decklist. Don't get me wrong, outside of my Momentary Blink advice, I'm not trying to tell you how to build your deck, I've just tried a little bit different list to counter the most threatening aggro decks.

Mono Red Burn is actually rolling on this deck, I added 4 Dragon's Claw to the SB as the 2 Leyline of Sanctity are not enough to counter it. Those 4 claws actually completely wall it.

I really like your deck, I'm trying to get back at MTG and after more testing, there are lots of chances I buy/trade for this decklist !

You might want Lightning Greaves and maybe Hammer of Nazahn to protect Raff. I think you listed Talisman of Dominance instead of Talisman of Progress. Grand Arbiter Augustin IV seems helpful. Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle could be good to respond to some threats. Summoner's Egg can help cheat stuff in response to boardwipes. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is really painful to flash in. Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Batterskull, Wurmcoil Engine, and Platinum Emperion could be good combat tricks. Lavinia of the Tenth can be a useful delay in these colors. Ephara, God of the Polis could be nice for card draw if you're flashing in creatures. Nezahal, Primal Tide could be a good replacement for Venser's Journal.
