I'm curious as to the reason for choosing of Mass Calcify , since only Narset would survive it.

Forkbeard on Lyra Dawnbringer: Seek & Destroy

Thanks for the card ideas Prospekt, lots to consider here!

  • Endless Horizons is a gamble card in that the guaranteed land drops that come with it are certainly sweet, but the risk of losing EH + the exiled lands to removal is scary. I guess if you don't get too greedy with it and just grab a conservative amount of land it could be acceptable, I'm just not certain what I'd remove to make room for it
  • Dawn of Hope has been suggested a few times now and I like it. It's on theme and likely a reliable draw engine, I should get it in here
  • Mass Calcify is a great 1-sided wipe in theory, but a dead draw against other white decks of course. The casting cost is brutal too, I'd sooner run Wrath of God
  • I will say that Light from Within is a tempting anthem to add seeing as most angels have a minimum of in their casting cost
  • Brave the Elements ! The surprise factor would be great and I like the defensive/offensive versatility, I'm tempted to find room for this
  • Evangel of Heliod is a no go. Expensive to cast, off theme and is really just devotion good stuff
  • Luminarch Ascension seems like a no-brainer inclusion, but my experience with it has been rough. It turns into a game of 'don't let Forkbeard build those quest counters' and I just become the target. It's slow, draws hate & is win-more which is a shame because it's thematically awesome

  • Cheers :D

    peter20percent your brother is right, some targeted removal isn't the worst idea. Some of my favorites in mono-white are Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , Generous Gift , and Revoke Existence . Brave the Elements is also a fun little combat trick you could utilize. As far as cutting cards, I'd take out Coat of Arms , Knight Exemplar , Patron of the Valiant , Strongarm Monk , and possibly Touch of the Eternal . You don't have a centralized creature type enough to make Coat effective, plus is can be detrimental against other tribal decks. Same concept with the Exemplar, you're just not using enough Knights to make her worthwhile. Patron and Strongarm are just not the most effective to the strategy you're building. And Touch is a really risky card. When it works it's awesome, but I see it backfire more often than not. I'd also consider swapping out Mass Calcify for Day of Judgment or Cleansing Nova . Mass calcify is great, but it's a really high drop and you might be going up against decks that contain white creatures, nullifying your advantage. DoJ is cheaper and is great for if you're getting overwhelmed and need to clear the board, and Nova is great utility. Lastly, I'd consider swapping Angel of Invention for Akroma, Angel of Wrath , since you seem to be going for cards with word jumbles. Hopefully this helps!

    polydeuces17 on Oloro, Weaponized Life Gain

    Drop phyrexian arena, it's too slow. What's your budget like, and how competitive are you looking to make the deck? Demonic Tutor instead of diabolic if you've the funds, maybe keep both. Diabolic Revelation is a really nice search card too. How fast you want the deck, some proliferation cards to get that Sorin up quickly, Contentious Plan , Tezzeret's Gambit ... Some of the Ajanis have nice Ults too, with lower costs to hit the board. Looks a little to me like you're trying to do too many different things with the deck at once, Stax, life gain, control, tokens, draws etc. If you want to combo out, switch a bunch of those creatures for more control/search cards. Soul warden/soul attendant is alright, not a real good fit for the deck, since you already gain 2 life per turn off of oloro, being like 16 if you have three of your double life gains.. you could fit something better. Get rid of that blood baron, you definitely need more artifact/enchantment control... Not sure what your play group is like but there are some nice ones that gain you 4 life to trigger your angelic accord... I would maybe think of more Stax style cards, Propaganda perhaps, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV thinking of Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and Karlov of the Ghost Council will be more useful than a lot of those creatures and also allow you to have fewer while keeping control on board, maybe add a Dovin's Veto Time Wipe Supreme Verdict if you rather only hit opponents creatures, In Garruk's Wake perhaps Mass Calcify I could go on and on, but yeah kind of depends on how competitive you want to be I suppose..

    I think a couple of copies of Felidar Sovereign might be useful to have in the Mainboard.

    I don't know why everyone is being so cagey about their Sideboards, we already know what some of the best cards are for each colour.

    Here are some you might consider:

    Hope that helps. I am still testing against this deck, and might have more suggestions later.

    So now I'm going to organize this post is from different types of cards and alternatives and/or strictly better cards that have the same Converted mana cost!

    Let's start with enchantments! It seems like your all over the place, which is fine, but you have aura enchantments and land enchantments. which seems a little weird to me! Normally you want to either go a route for your deck, and this seems unorganized, so let us fix that! Serra Aviary is a bad card, cause it also gives opponents fliers +1/+1, we don't want this. So id suggest either going with some like Citadel Siege cause sure, it won't buff all creatures, and it'll give a boost to one creature you want per turn, or it can be used defensively which is always a plus! I'd also suggest going Dictate of Heliod cause it gives an extra +1/+1 for one extra mana, AND IT HAS FLASH! For cards that are better for the 4 cmc are Light from Within , Force of Virtue , Marshal's Anthem .

    Also if you want anthem's like that there are some better than 4 cmc! such as Honor the Pure, Spear of Heliod , Glorious Anthem , Always Watching , Radiant Destiny

    For ramp, I like the inclusion of Zendikar Resurgent but Mirari's Wake should be an auto-include 100%!

    If you're looking for removal enchantments for commanders or problem creatures cards like Darksteel Mutation and Song of the Dryads , Imprisoned in the Moon are WAY better than Illusory Wrappings

    For protection cards or cards that accumulate value, instead of Angelic Renewal and Angelic Accord , cards which can be good, but you don't have a whole lof of life gain or recursion to run these two! So I'd suggest cards like Sigil of the New Dawn , Kindred Boon , Privileged Position and Asceticism are 100% more effective in protecting your creatures or giving good value.

    Speaking of value, enchantments you should look to include are: Sylvan Library fantastic enchantment. Rhystic Study and Land Tax are all good cards you should look at!

    Now that we got enchantments out of the way! lets work on these instants! I love some of these instants, Absorb is a fun card that I'm 100% gonna get, same with Archmage's Charm ! Disdainful Stroke , Essence Scatter (and the like), Commencement of Festivities and Guardian Angel are all weaker versions of cards like Mana Drain and Counterspell which I'd upgrade with. I'd also suggest getting some artifact/enchantment removal such as Krosan Grip one of the best in this as it has split second, another card I highly recommend is Bant Charm one of the most versatile instant printed in these colors. some other instants i enjoy and have seen good results with are Teferi's Protection , Plasm Capture / Mana Drain , Render Silent , Arcane Denial , Dawn Charm and Heroic Intervention . Those are just some of my recommendations! I may have some more but You'd really need to let me know what direction you want to go!!

    For sorceries, you're in gosh darn green! WHERE ARE THE RAMP SPELLS?!!??!!? Add Farseek , and since we have big fatty CMC angels, Recross the Paths puts in some work! Kodama's Reach and Explosive Vegetation are better than cards like Rampant Growth because 1) it gives card advantage (2 lands for 1 card) and 2) gives us more mana to work with during the late game! (this is when angel decks typically win). other ramp spells I use are Cultivate and Traverse the Outlands .

    I've noticed this deck does not have a SINGLE BOARD WIPE, as big as our angels are for the CMC, we won't be able to cast them until later, board wipes are essential to have especially since you aren't running any pillow forts kind of cards, I HIGHLY recommend adding some, cards that I've always had in my white decks are Austere Command , Rout , Supreme Verdict , Cleansing Nova , Descend upon the Sinful , Planar Cleansing and Mass Calcify . Some other sources that are more focused with tribal is Harsh Mercy sure each player gets to pick a creature type, but that typically is one creature for them, and of course we'll pick angels, so we get the upper-hand in this!

    We need some card draw, and this is important as I don't see any in this deck and that is a HUGE mistake. Think about adding cards like Rishkar's Expertise , Praetor's Counsel , Blue Sun's Zenith , Sphinx's Revelation , Finale of Revelation just to name a few that come to mind.

    For Lands, these look just.....fine albeit slow, but not quite optimized. I totally understand how people on a budget don't run cards like Misty Rainforest and the like. But as a 3 color deck, I suggest adding in cards like Temple of Enlightenment and Temple of Plenty at least you'll get value from them coming in tapped. Other cards I'd suggest are Krosan Verge , Prairie Stream , Flooded Grove , Wooded Bastion , Seaside Citadel , Path of Ancestry , Forbidden Orchard (cause what is a 1/1 to our angels? PFFT) other lands that give some utility in a pinch are: Scattered Groves and Irrigated Farmland ! other good cards are Glacial Fortress (and it's kin), Hinterland Harbor and Temple Garden !

    For Artifacts, I see the signets, I don't typically run the Sol Ring and X signets just cause I like my land ramp better and won't get destroyed with target removal or artifact/enchantment wipes. but as a 3 color deck, you 100% NEED Chromatic Lantern basically makes all your mana problems go away, just tap lands for whatever color you need! If you're trying to go for some voltronish cards, I'd suggest going like Darksteel Plate , which basically secures that you keep whatever creature you want alive for the rest of the game (unless they exile it with a spell somehow). Godsend is also a good card as people won't want to block because it exiles shit, which is GREAT, let me tell you how many times people didn't block because they wanted to keep their creature(s).
    For tribal support cards, there is a very small pool to chose from, So you might want to grab a Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , Urza's Incubator , Door of Destinies , Coat of Arms , Stoneforge Masterwork and Cryptic Gateway are some cards to look at!

    Ok, lets finally get this creature situation fixed! first of, YOU'RE AN ANGEL DECK WITHOUT ITS PRIME GURL!?! WHERE IS MY Avacyn, Angel of Hope ?!?!?!??!!?!?!? I'm disappointed!!!! But for real, add her.

    Other cards considering should be Metallic Mimic (if you're going for a 1/1 counter theme.) Solemn Simulacrum should go in here, he's just too good not to have here! Rhonas the Indomitable is a great mana sink, and if you really need to give trample to your creatures, Nylea, God of the Hunt is also a good alternative. Resplendent Angel is a great 3 cmc angel, don't underestimate this gurl! Sephara, Sky's Blade is also a great (shittier) version of our gurl Avacyn, Angel of Hope but still a good effect none-the-less! Iridescent Angel , for a 7 mana angel, I was hesitant at running her in my jenara deck, but has proved to be SO GOSHDARN STRONG! Can literally take ANY damage from ANYTHING (don't mention the Eldrazi to this gurl) but it has soaked up a lot of damage over my games. Archangel of Tithes is a great 4 cmc angel that gives taxes for attacking and defending! great include! Angel of Invention a fabulous card, especially if you have something that gives +1/+1 counters, say a Bow of Nylea , is a great addition to our squad! Angel of Serenity is a good card here as well! great recursion for this deck! since we're in bant, Stoic Angel is also a good include! Akroma, Angel of Wrath can't go wrong with an 8/8 creature with so many keywords and protection(s)!

    Also, there is ONE card that is SO GOSHDARN UNDERRATED AND NEVER PLAYED and has literally been the BIGGEST beater I've EVER seen is non-other than Selfless Squire . THIS GURL...Where are my words for this card. It's a fog effect but you get a MASSIVE creature that has to be answered or your opponent die! I've had people swing at me for 20+ damage, not worried because of Selfless Squire and she becomes a huge creature, give her trample and/or indestructible, good game! This gurl is so badass she can oftentimes beat an ELDRAZI TITAN 1v1 (in terms of power/toughness). Best and most fun card I'VE EVER PLAYED IN A CREATURE! 50/10 would recommend!

    I would consider cutting one board wipe (probably either Mass Calcify since it might not kill all your opponents' threats or Fell the Mighty for the same reason) and maybe one or two targeted removal (enchantment) spells and Benalish Commander to add in some more card draw and ramp ( Hedron Archive , Dreamstone Hedron , or even Orazca Relic ) and a Ranger-Captain of Eos and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite .
