Serabelle on Avacyn Worldslayer

Hey, nice to see someone else is trying to make Avacyn competitive! Here are some thoughts from my own Avacyn deck, I’m still in the process of building it as well. :)


Card Quality:

Protecting Avacyn:

  • Avacyn is a huge threat and most people will definitely try to stop you from using her by: countering her summoning, exiling her, -x/-x, sacrifice, copying or stealing her.

  • Teferi's Protection is complete board protection. Probably the best defense white has.

  • Effects like Otherworldly Journey or Long Road Home allow you to save her from exile board wipes, Cyclonic Rift and the like.

  • Arcane Lighthouse is useful in circumstances that someone copies or steals your Avacyn.

  • Whispersilk Cloak can also combo well with Worldslayer (just be sure to equip Worldslayer first).

Spot Removal:

  • Oblation (shuffles back into deck)

  • Condemn (puts attacking creature at the bottom of its owner’s library)

Counter Spells: (Not that there are many in white).


Potential Planeswalkers:

Good Luck! I hope the deck building goes well! :)

Along the theme of mono white control and weird planar chaos cards, I like to run Porphyry Nodes in any deck with Mana Tithe. Yes, you have a lot of creatures, but they all have high power, and nodes can slow the game down to a snails pace as your opponent has to either stop playing creatures for a bit or outrace it and overextend into a boardwipe.

Omniscience_is_life on Lemures Citadel

Looks like a very powerful deck. My only recommendations are as follows:

Remove: (let me know if your meta makes any of these cards better than they might usually be, btw)

Mana Tithe. This card will too often be dead in your hand, as a 1 mana tax is, at most points in the game, equivalent to nothing.

Disenchant/Seal of Cleansing. There are just more powerful versions of this card(s?), it's just too narrow for 2 CMC

Fragmentize. Um... sorcery speed? No, thank you

Serra Ascendant. As far as I can tell, this card has very little synergy with the strategy of the deck, I know you want to be gaining life but this card doesn't care as long as you're just barely staying around your starting life total. Don't get me wrong: Serra Ascendant is busted in the format, but a more synergistic piece would be better in its place.


Phyrexian Arena. Great repeatable card draw, and works great in decks that A. don't care about a little life loss, and B. want the game to go longer anyway.

Slaughter Pact. Awesome spot removal, can get you out of sticky situation where you want to cast spells, but also hold up answers.

Dismantling Wave. Works best in our 4-player format, kind of a lot of value in one card. Nice to be able to "overload" it, too.

Teferi's Protection. Great for keeping your combos pieces safe if someone tries to wrath or something, also can just keep you from dying to direct damage and the like ;)

O-stone/Nev's Disc. Great way to be efficient with mana, you can play 'em out on a turn that you don't have any other actions on, and then crack them with the situation gets tight.

Abolish. Similar theory to Slaughter Pact.

hope this helps, good luck with the deck! (also, definitely tell me if I missed any key interactions or anything like that. Thanks)

@DemonDragonJ white is secondary in counterspells (is allowed 'taxing' counterspells ala Mana Tithe) therefore it's not a problem. I believe REB is problematic due to the 'destroy' part, not the counter part, which would only be a bend imho (compare Guttural Response for reference).

Mana Tithe was from a plane where all mana took on different forms, so a purposeful break.

Think Dreamscape Artist, which is a blue Harrow Spellshaper.

You really should be heavily taxing everything your opp does, so TS and Tithe early are great ways to keep them down. Then you move to some more heavy land destruction, and eventually win with Rhino.

Or at least that's how I'd do it.

dichia on Abzan

I'm trying to make a deck based on Leonin Arbiter and Aven Mindcensor to get more value out of cards like Path to Exile, Ghost Quarter and Assassin's Trophy.

I wanted to make it a sort of taxes deck, but since I'm running a lot of noncreature spells, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is not viable imo.

To keep it a little more control-oriented I was thinking about Tidehollow Sculler and Mana Tithe that fits the taxes archetype.

I'm looking for suggestions on other cards that could fit a deck like this. Possible win conditions, other cards that could benefit the effects of Leonin Arbiter and Aven Mindcensor or that synergize with them and other "taxing cards".

I have been interested in this commander since I saw the spoiler. I have one nuts and bolts recommendation that does have synergy and can bail your ass out: Mana Tithe. Good luck!
