@AlwaysSleepy: Thanks. Based on such a combo, I guess the only replacing card I'd use to replace Night's Whisper is either Tormenting Voice or even Wild Guess ? All three have a CMC of 2, or am I missing out on something? I'll have to check to comment to be sure...

Hmmm... it seems as if both replacements just require a single discard from the hand, & the rest is in the clear; much like how Night's Whisper works for this combo. Might as well have an extra card to discard for either Rummaging Replacement. So, yeah. Thanks very much, sir; after a lot of such I've been through; I think it's about time I start my Mardu deck project. But what the heck to use as a CMDR of such design? Queen Marchesa is good, but not what I'm looking for. Zurgo Helmsmasher is ridiculous on its own, but still not what to use as Voltron (Not what I want.), Oros, the Avenger ? nope. Tariel, Reckoner of Souls ? Chaos (This really deserves a symbol here for commenting, & other things of the like. Same for the Planeswalker Symbol on the Same Planar Die.) so far is too hard to control, & is potentially better off as something else entirely that's NOT Angel Tribal. Kaalia of the Vast is more akin to Mayael the Anima as they tutor for very powerful creatures w/ crazy effects. Not much closer. Not going to allow anymore Partner duos. Ol' Edgar Markov means a no can do for me; Eminence was never going to last long enough anyway. Licia, Sanguine Tribune just wants to feast on blood at an extremely huge mana cost, but this deck has little to nothing about life gain. One option remains: Mathas, Fiend Seeker . I wonder how he can truly work... Thanks again! ^_^

Normally you'd be right, but because Licia, Sanguine Tribune is a CMC 8 creature, Morbid Curiosity draws us 8 cards off 3 mana compared to spells like Night's Whisper . This isn't a voltron strategy deck so I don't mind sacrificing Licia as she works more like a utility commander in this deck and it's easy to get her back on the field anyway.

Hey! I really love Evra, Halcyon Witness I run her in my Licia, Sanguine Tribune deck and she does work there.

A couple of suggestions. I'd definitely recommend adding Children of Korlis . It allows you to kill two persons with Aetherflux Reservoir and with Evra, Halcyon Witness you can gain back the life from the activation. Straight away.

Swords to Plowshares is a premium removal spell and can be used in a pinch to gain a ton of life with your commander.

Smothering Tithe is a really good ramp option in white that I'd recommend trying out. Even better if you include Memory Jar :)

Myriad Landscape is a great land that shouldn't be too hard to find! Scoured Barrens from Fate Reforged is another inexpensive two color land. Shambling Vent isn't too expensive (although you never know how or when that could change with manlands in other formats). Command Tower is reprinted in every commander set, and should be in every multicolor commander deck.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty actually can't be played in this deck, since there's green in the activated ability. Same issue for Seek .

Also, I'm curious why Kambal is the commander instead of Arvad the Cursed . Almost every creature in this deck is legendary, so I'm also inclined to recommend Thalia's Lancers , Urza's Ruinous Blast , Yawgmoth's Vile Offering , and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth .

As for what to replace, I'd suggest cutting Shadowfeed , Rest for the Weary , and Chaplain's Blessing , since those cards don't really help your deck function, or accomplish very much at all. Single-instance lifegain cards tend to be on the underperforming side, unless they have a strong synergy (such as Licia, Sanguine Tribune 's cost reduction!)

Hope this helped!

Well, I hope you can buy your cards in germany,. Often I hear about the enormous card-prices in the us. Is it the same in canada?

Yeah, you are right, but I am a very big fan, exchanging card. I mean, everybody has a big basic equipment of bulk rares, un-& commons and I can buy a 40cent card, or try to interchange it with person who needs something from me. For me, it's one of the elementary processes in playing magic. But you are right, sometimes, you have to buy the stuff. :>

About the changes: I play multiplayer much more often than 1v1, but I think also in multiplayer games, it is very important to have Arcades early on the board. And I play multiplayer as well as 1v1, so I have to build a deck which performs well in both gametypes. About Serra's Blessing , in my opinion, vigilance is, especially in multiplayer, great. I also think about adding Reconnaissance but I have only one and it's in my Licia, Sanguine Tribune -Deck. So I took Serra for the moment. About Propaganda and Ghostly Prison , there is no doubt, they are great, but Propaganda is already in my nekusar-deck and Ghostly Prison in my licia-deck, on which I both working in the moment. xD I don't think I need the enchantment tutor, cause I draw a lot of cards to find one of these. But I have them, so maybe I change my mind later. :D By the way, I took out Mentor of the Meek and Assault Formation , cause both never performed that well.

Thank you for the suggestions, I appreciate it a lot!

Daedalus19876: The Scarab God has always been up in my list for deck ideas, he is pretty sweet and great for a lot of different ideas!

I been on the spur of building a new deck. Some ideas as of lately is rebuilding my Bear tribal deck (due to all my friends wanting me to rebuild her, and also surprisingly people on T/O saying I should rebuild it as well) or Licia, Sanguine Tribune .

Welcome Darkshadow327! ^^
