Maelstrom Archangel Discussion

Prismatic Omen is a good choice for five color deck, IMO. Darksteel Ingot, Coalition Relic, Chromatic Lantern, Mana Bloom, Mox Amber and Pillar of Origins are super great Mana fixers, and I love Path of Ancestry/Cavern of Souls in this deck. I am glad you included Maelstrom Archangel, great angel!

consider rebound spells like Emerge Unscathed and Distortion Strike...ordeal auras are sweet too like Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea...... idk what the deal is with you Commander.... would you consider an alternate 5 color commander like Maelstrom Archangel just to at least have some kinda benefit/synergy?

This is a wicked dope deck. Your mana fixing seems great, surprisingly! My advice is to find more ways to cheat things into play.
Check out Maelstrom Wanderer, as you could cast it for 5 and cascade twice for 8. Unexpected Results might just be a fun card to throw in there. Defense of the Heart is two free beasties for a 4 mana cost enchantment. Quicksilver Amulet, Dragon Arch, and Elvish Piper are all much cheaper alternatives to your commander's ability.
For other mana fixings, look at Ramos, Dragon Engine's ability. While it's not exactly fixing, Maelstrom Archangel can do similar things as Ramos if you get her swinging. Anyway, I hope this helped. Good luck!

Thanks for your feedback! I definitely think that Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Maelstrom Archangel, and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth spike this deck's price way up. There are plenty of more budget friendly options such as Winding Constrictor, Vorel of the Hull Clade, or even Fusion Elemental. I definitely don't think you should remove the expensive mana ramp/fixers, such as Chromatic Lantern or Crystalline Crawler because they really help this deck. The mana base is pretty much the sole reason that this deck is above 150 USD, the typical budget deck cost, BUT this is a five color deck and there are definitely plenty of even cheaper land options, such as the khan tri-lands, I just happened to choose a slightly less budget mana base.
I hope that my response helps you!

If you're trying to build Ramos deck I'd try cascade builds with cards like Maelstrom Nexus, Maelstrom Wanderer and maybe Maelstrom Archangel. Also while you have 10 mana avaiable then why not Door to Nothingness someone just because you can :D

Jodah is by far the most intriguing leaked legendary so +1 from me. I'd say you should run Fist of Suns, Sunbird's Invocation, and Maelstrom Archangel to provide redundancy incase Jodah is dealt with.
I think you could upgrade most of your removal packages. I understand that Contract Killing and Gild get you treasure, but cards like Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, Cyclonic Rift, etc. are far superior and more versatile. Sylvan Reclamation is also great to deal with a troublesome Blood Moon and can help fix your mana.
Good luck deck building and I absolutely love seeing someone play Hypnox!

If you group commander group is open to non-traditional commander options I played a Maelstrom Archangel tribal deck for a while. The card itself isn't so powerful that people are afraid of it and as long as I wasn't trying to pull off stupid infinite combos they didn't mind me using her.

I understand the enchantment flavor for Chromanticore and that it's decent by itself, but would rather see Ramos, Dragon Engine or something else that functions better (although Ramos can be aggro).
You totally have a theme going and I dig it, just tossing some thoughts out there.
