Optimator on Giant's Deck

So as far as ramp cards I can give you, I have:

Mind Stone - Worn Powerstone - Dowsing Dagger  Flip - Prismatic Lens - Darksteel Ingot - Arcane Signet - Boros Signet - Heraldic Banner - Hedron Archive - Talisman of Conviction - Coldsteel Heart - Dreamstone Hedron - Burnished Hart - Commander's Sphere


Cards I don't have that you may want to consider:

Sword of the Animist - Wayfarer's Bauble - Gilded Lotus - Nyx Lotus - Thran Dynamo - Fire Diamond - Marble Diamond - Solemn Simulacrum (can be thrown with Brion!) - Star Compass - Sisay's Ring - Ur-Golem's Eye - Firemind Vessel - Cloud Key - Empowered Autogenerator - Lavabrink Floodgates - Guardian Idol

I really like Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo a lot. This really is a deck where you want to get to 8+ mana.

I would recommend at least ten pieces of ramp, perhaps even twelve. Definitely no fewer than ten in my opinion. Perhaps six that add 1 mana and four than add 2+ mana? Something like that. Getting Brion out a turn early, while not vital, can be convenient as he can pad your life total.


I would recommend 36-38 lands.

I really like Angel themed decks, but the only problem is, most angels are just super expensive and looking at your deck list, there is just no ramp, except very few cards... Im just gonna type some cards, maybe you'll like some, most likely not all of them, just so you have some larger pool of cards to choose from. :)

Myriad Landscape/Burnished Hart is alright; Land Tax is just auto-include in most decks; Caged Sun is also good, but you need to ramp into it somehow; Sword of the Animist is ok, but you need to swing with a creature and there are no Haste enablers (not even Lightning Greaves.

First of all, I would cut exile board wipes, since it just hurts mono-white without ramp the most (Play of the Game and Perilous Vault). You could hold priority and cast Teferi's Protection, but.. dont really know about that... :D

Sunscour should have really good place in mono-white deck.
Endless Horizons - is something like budget of Land Tax, but can also help to thin your deck after you get enough mana on board.
Planar Bridge,Planar Portal,Thran Temporal Gateway,Belbe's Portal,Cryptic Gateway - to either search for anything or put big stuff directly on board. Urza's Incubator should be there to reduce mana cost of your big angels.

worldslayer -> protect your creatures and artifacts: Show

Card draw in white isnt the best, so using artifacts is really helpful, both for ramp and card draw: Show

Some mana rocks for sure: Show

Some ramp with white creatures and spells: Show

Your average cmc is over 4, thats really high. I would recommend cutting 6 high cmc creatures for Talisman of Conviction Boros Signet Arcane Signet Boros Locket Fire Diamond Marble Diamond locket is bad but the 2 cards can help later in a pinch. Also try to find some lower cmc spells to swap for some fatties Maybe include Speaker of the Heavens and Bishop of Wings or other angel relevant clerics. Do you have a meta that supplies enough time for Burnished Hart ? I find it to be incredibly clunky, its 2 turns to play 2 extra lands. I would just add Myriad Landscape to the mana base and swap the burnished hart for Knight of the White Orchid Legion's Initiative can protect your team from a wipe. Leaving mana open is hard in Boros, but losing creatures with limited card draw is very bad. Eerie Interlude and Unbreakable Formation or Teferi's Protection can also protect the team if there is a board wipe. And now the important part. Herald's Horn and Vanquisher's Banner since your tribal red has wheels and impulse draw like Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel there's Mazemind Tome 4 scrys for 2 mana is a fair rate and if you need cards or have the mana open go ahead and draw. Stolen Strategy Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Rogue's Gloves Chandra, Torch of Defiance Mask of Memory can all get you cards just off the top of my head but Im sure scryfall or looking through some other gisela decks will render many more options as well. Cheers good luck with your Angels!

Joe_Ken_ on mono w soldiers

You'll want to tone down on creatures and look into getting some interaction into the deck.

Some enchantments like True Conviction for a game finisher , Dawn of Hope to make soldier tokens and for some card draw , or Brave the Sands to give your board some blocking power.

Second you have to have ramp. Use cards like Myriad Landscape , Burnished Hart , or Isolated Watchtower as the game goes on the player with the most mana is the most likely to win. Gift of Estates can secure you some land drops as well as Thaumatic Compass  Flip which becomes a good utility land later on. Also mana rocks like Marble Diamond , Hedron Archive , Worn Powerstone , and Mind Stone can be good. Also there is Heraldic Banner which will also be a boost for your team.

Azeworai on White Supremacy

Alright, I'm here to rectify the meiny of follies within this decklist.

Unto what I would ablate:

Shalai, Voice of Plenty is an illegal inclusion due to the colour identity rules, for she has Green therewithin.

Akrasan Squire does close to naught in all scenarios. It adds one power to the board, yet offers nothing else. An eath exclusion.

Seeing as that you commander provides indestructible, Terminus is a wrath that shall hit your board as well. Try Catastrophe, as the Armageddon tells me that you don't mind foredoing all lands.

Riot Control is inutile. I shan't say more. The very same is of Faerie Guidemother, for it just does nothing.

Sorcery-speed removal is just awful, and therefrom I would remove Revoke Existence.

Scaretiller is awful ramp, even when playing mono-White.

Wherefore do you run White Knight? 'Tis a potent card, but doesn't do much for this strategy.

Now, Eternal Dragon is a favourite of mine, yet it just finds a basic plains. Other than that, 'tis a seven-mana 5/5. Don't run this.

Acolyte's Reward is egregious, thence I would rede for its removal.

Why is Anafenza here? She is meant to go infinite, yet there isn't much to combo with here. Just murder it.

Suspicious Bookcase is rather perfidious, avaunt it should be snuffed for something else.

Wellway! Quite the multitude there, whereupon I have some recommendations.

Boon Reflection was just reprinted and thence it has quite the low price, for it does the same as Rhox Faithmender. Another is Alhammarret's Archive.

This is a slow deck, so try Ghostly Prison.

If you wish for other efficient life gain, Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant do much at a cheap cost.

Heliod's Intervention is fantastic removal and a splendid mana-sync, withal Abolish is an underrated favourite of mine.

Lyra Dawnbringer anthems much of your deck whiles Baneslayer Angel is a scarily efficient flyer.

Unto ramp:

Given the high mana curve, you'll need a lot of this. Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, and Arcane Signet are each two-mana, which is when you want to ramp, and do their job well. Solemn Simulacrum is okay but not great, yet Thran Dynamo does a most meritorious effect for an eight-mana commander.

Lastly, though not ramp, Generous Gift is universal and efficient removal as an instant.

That shall be all from me. Fare thee well.

ClockworkSwordfish on Mono-White Keyword Banding

3 months ago

If you're having issues with mana, then I definitely wouldn't extend the deck to three colours! Instead consider making room for the likes of Marble Diamond, Pearl Medallion, Worn Powerstone and Temple of the False God as well as the various white cards that can piggyback off your opponent's ramp, like Tithe, Gift of Estates, Knight of the White Orchid and Oreskos Explorer.

Also, I'm surprised you aren't running Errand of Duty! Having access to banding at instant speed is pretty handy. I'd also recommend Return to Dust over Ray of Distortion - it gets two targets for four mana rather than ten mana, and exiles them to boot - and something like Brave the Sands since banding pairs well with vigilance.

Another thing to consider is that banding is at its best when you have a scapegoat to soak up all the damage. That could be anything from Cho-Manno, Revolutionary to Seraph of the Sword to Darksteel Myr.

DoIStillLoveIt on Autumn Tail EDH

I have long been a fan of Autumn-Tail, am just finally putting a list together. Have you considered Victory Chimes? It gives you a free move on each of your opponent's turns!

Also, for speed and consistency, have you considered some 2cmc rocks, like Marble Diamond, Arcane Signet, and Mind Stone? They would help you land turn 3 Mystic so you can really get your engine going :)
