Mentor of the Meek Discussion
5 hours ago
I've been playing around with Boros angels in MTG Arena and have found that going for the aggro plan works fairly well against other fast or midrange style decks since you have speed coupled with the survivability of lifegain. However, the deck really suffers against control since the removal of early threats limits the amount of pressure you can exert. Boros has it especially rough since you'll tend to run out of cards as the game drags on.
For the first problem, I've found Adanto Vanguard to be a Godsend. It's an enormous threat like some other 2 drops but it's much harder to dislodge. My win rate rose a lot after switching a playset in. There's a bit of a nonbo with Vanguard and mentor triggers, but I still think it's worth inclusion in at least the side. Finding effective card advantage sources has been much more difficult. I'm currently using Mentor of the Meek since it can be triggered by most Boros weenies and even Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice. Other options like Dawn of Hope, Arcane Encyclopedia, and Sarkhan, Fireblood just don't seem to fit into the archetype. If you have any ideas, let me know.

Hey man. Your list seems okay on paper, but I've been playing Saffi for almost 3 years now, and can see a lot of problems that your list is sure to run in to in a real game.
Immediate changes I would make:
- Naturalize >> Nature's Claim
- Angelic Renewal >> Survival of the Fittest
- Scattered Groves >> Brushland
These cards will accelerate your deck more than you know.
Furthermore, you should make slots for better pieces of protection, as other decks at the table that run more advantageous colors like Blue and Black, and will surely out-pace you, even at full power. Sylvan Tutor is an instant include to speed you up, as are Summoner's Pact and Chord of Calling. You lands that enter tapped should be replaced with better options, such as Mana Confluence and/or City of Brass, as color fixing is a must. That being said, Glacial Chasm should be there to protect you and be your best Crop Rotation target. For creatures to protect yourself please consider: Aegis of the Gods or True Believer, and Tajuru Preserver.
Lastly, I would drop the Skullclamp/Mentor of the Meek package. You're taking up too many card slots devoted to something to is inefficient is terms of mana usage. If you really want to get card draw down, please use Soul of the Harvest (and check out how Loyal Retainers gets you there with Soul and with Fecundity).
All in all this is a fairly solid list, but don't be afraid to check out mine!

championeggo Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to take a look at your list. I know my draw is pretty underwhelming, I like Mentor of the Meek I just don't like that it's not a vampire, but neither are sign in blood or siphon mind so I may replace one of them for it. As far as Coffers, I'll probably pick up a copy eventually but I wanna work on getting shocks, fetches, and Purphoros, God of the Forge as my next more expensive cards.

dlj529 As a fellow Edgar player I love the foundation you have. Obvious stand out is Cabal Coffers would be huge for you since you have Urborg. Also you have some expensive vamps that are very late game, but would pay off if you can get them down early. Also as much as I LOVE Phyrexian Reclamation, and I tried it in my Edgar Deck before I just never really needed to dig in my graveyard and it was a dead card most of the time, and there are better ways to draw cards than sign in blood and syphon mind, but if you dont have anything else they are find. Phyrexian Arena and Mentor of the Meek are great for this deck. Nonetheless good start and I gave an Upvote. Cheers! My list is below if you wanted to bounce some ideas. Happy Brewing!

Completely forgot about Mentor of the Meek, not a knight so I can see why I overlooked this but splashed in there for purely card draw looks amazing. I'm swapping out the Llanowar Elves for now and will see how this works out. I'm liking how this deck is coming together. Everyone's suggestions are amazing!

Hey, if the goal here is the tap Emmara to make a Solider army then consider more repeatable ways to do it without attacking?
- Survivors' Encampment
- Holdout Settlement
- Cryptolith Rite
- Smuggler's Copter
- Springleaf Drum
- Paradise Mantle
- Glare of Subdual
- Honor-Worn Shaku
- Seeker of Skybreak
- Nullmage Shepherd
- Song of Freyalise
Being able to tap Emmara to make mana for ramp is very good.
Other cards to consider:
- Quest for Renewal
- Mentor of the Meek
- Fierce Empath
- Beast Within
- Swords to Plowshares
- Hour of Reckoning
- Thunderfoot Baloth
- Sun Titan
- Seedborn Muse

Actually, I was being an idiot before. To draw cards in white in Standard, check out Mentor of the Meek and Dawn of Hope depending on whether you'll be getting most small dudes or most life. You don't have a lot of lifegain as is, so if you want to go with the latter, maybe consider Legion's Landing Flip or Fountain of Renewal.

I love the idea and I have a competitive similar deck, but I just feel this is very inconsistent, too many parts, I would cut Llanowar Elves with a mostly white deck you need a forest to play it and then after that it can only give you a forest. I would also cut Sprouting Renewal any token deck need a 4 of for Saproling Migration. Personally I would also cut Dawn of Hope i understand it is for draw and to get more tokens but its pricey to get the tokens and the 2 man cost to draw a card is a lot also, Mentor of the Meek would do almost the same think for less mana, Finally i would think of cutting Fountain of Renewal the life gain is great but you should be making a lot of lifelink soldiers so you don’t really need that life gain. Overall i think they deck is trying to be 2 things a life gain deck and a token deck and you should try to make it more consistent.
Add another Venerated Loxodon great card when doing tokens, it will pump them and can be played turn 2 or 3 with he right draws
Here are my comments if you want you can also look at my deck, it has done well in competitions so far Selesnya Angel Tokens
As always these are just my thoughts I have not played the deck but I wish you luck.
