Mangara of Corondor Discussion

Since you have a lot of spirits and humans, I would add tribal cards like Door of Destinies, or even better, Coat of Arms. Some common cards in Death and Taxes are Rishadan Port and Aether Vial, and I can see how they would work with this deck. Mangara of Corondor can take down a massive threat for , and Flickerwisp can temporarily eliminate their win condition. If you're willing to make the deck more pricey, Karakas would be an awesome addition, but it is illegal. Take out Diabolic Tutor and put in Enlightened Tutor. These seem to be the main changes I would make, tell me if it helps by clicking that check mark next to my suggestions. Nice deck, keep up the good work!

The only one of those I do not like using is Mangara of Corondor... Pretty meta specific reasons though. He's just so rattlesnakish, my group hones in on removing him so that they can try to play back to their original designs. In effect he usually is a wasted play in my meta because someone always removes him before he does anything... and he needs haste

Hey, thanks for the suggestions! Definitely added a few of those to the maybeboard. I'm not too interested in an infinite combo for this deck, since that's not really the speed of my playgroup. I can loop Mangara of Corondor with a sac outlet and Phyrexian Reclamation if need be, and the oodles of tokens I create are not quite infinite but definitely enough to remove any other creature from the board and any life out of opponents' totals, when combined with Dictate of Erebos and a few aristocrats.
That's basically why I didn't fully go for the vampire tribal - Edgar doesn't make quite as many tokens as other non-vampire cards do, and I wanted more of an aristocrat deck than a go wide and tall with vampires deck. The tokens very rarely attack, but Edgar/Vish Kal/Drana/Licia is plenty powerful with a Blade of the Bloodchief and Whispersilk Cloak when you sac 20 zombies, then sac 20 spirits, then swing and give lifelink while Sanguine Bond is up.
I'm really liking the look of Phyrexian Altar, Bloodcrazed Paladin and Indulgent Aristocrat though. Might need to cut something to make room for those. Also thinking of swapping the Crypt Ghast out for Nirkana Revenant, or just putting both in and tripling my mana. I also like Legion's Landing Flip but I used to run Trading Post which serves the same purpose but is more versatile. Cut for Ashnod's Altar at the moment.

I like this theme a lot.
Angel of Finality might give you some graveyard hate. Angel of Glory's Rise might help you recur your humans and even include a few more utility humans like Mangara of Corondor or Mageta the Lion. Angel of Serenity is often a spicy surprise. Bruna, the Fading Light, + Gisela, the Broken Blade, + Thalia's Lancers can be fun. Exquisite Archangel is kind of like a cheaper Platinum Angel or a back-up Resolute Archangel.
Since you are running a mono-colored deck, you might also be able to play fewer lands, which would free up some slots for more creatures, protection (e.g. Lapse of Certainty or Mana Tithe), or removal (e.g. Hallowed Moonlight or Rout). Banishing Light is another good O-Ring effect. Path to Exile might help. A few more rocks and some more card-draw (e.g. Inheritance) might help, too.
I hope some of these suggestions are useful.

Flicker decks are awesome.
Have you ever tested with Mangara of Corondor? Might be a great flicker target with its ability on the stack.

Wow thanks a lot for all these suggestions! i also love the idea to use Mangara of Corondor. Comparing to that, Merieke is quite easy to built around i guess.
Hexproof is amazing in this case. Unfortunatly Champion's Helm is a little too pricey, but Mask of Avacyn is already in my collection so it's in. Isochron Scepter is amazing too. I'm thinking about including Trophy Mage to search for this kind of stuff. Would you agree on that? Eldrazi Displacer also seems perfect for this deck. I'm not so sure about the spells though. I like Eerie Interlude and Teferi's Protection but they don't synergize well with Isochron Scepter. And the rest of them doesn't quite accomplish enough to be worth it i think. Maybe Momentary Blink and Dramatic Reversal? I'm not sure about those two. Apart of all this i took out a Swamp for Bojuka Bog to slow down Graveyard shenanigans.

This looks fun. You might test with lands that support your tribal theme like Cavern of Souls and Path of Ancestry. Since this deck in Mono W, there might also be room for utility lands like Maze of Ith.
Kindred Boon might offer some protection against board wipes and other destruction-based removal, and Mark of Asylum might help protect creatures from damage-based removal. Ghostly Prison and Solitary Confinement might also protect you and buy you time to set up your board.
A few mana rocks might help cast Avacyn and Elesh Norn earlier.
Finally, I wonder if more card draw might be useful, especially to replace lost creatures. Cards like Inheritance and Pursuit of Knowledge might be good alongside something like Words of Worship for value.
Have fun brewing!

There are lots of cool exile effects in W, including enchantments like Banishing Light, Journey to Nowhere, and Oblivion Ring. Cards like Nevermore and Ghostly Prison give you a bit more control. Creatures like Mageta the Lion and Mangara of Corondor give you cool abilities attached to creatures who can serve as alternate commanders - especially if you combine blink effects with Mangara's ability on the stack.
I'm working on a similar list at Mangara of Blinkrondor, am I right?.
