Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist Discussion
9 hours ago
I like this deck very much, but I do have both a question to ask and a comment about it.
First, while your mana curve is mostly low, Omniscience is a very expensive spell, so how do you plan to be able to cast it reliably? Simply by having sufficient lands and mana-generating artifacts?

Okay, take two with the new commander.
Shalai wants to go wide with a lot of tokens, then to pump them up with her ability, as you get a whole load of hexproof tokens that get +1/+1, so I will recycle the rhetoric I used with Trotstani about tokens. You should probably think about abusing a go-wide strategy.
I playtested this deck 5 times, you have a serious problem with a lack of card draw. I playtest until turn 8, and you were consistently running out of cards. If you wish to assemble your Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Platinum Angel + Shalai, Voice of Plenty + Tajuru Preserver combo, you need draw and tutors. For reference, my wizard deck combos off pretty reliably by turn 8, most combo heavy decks will combo off by turn 4 at the earliest, turn 10 at the latest.
Okay now to the cards:
I repeat myself with Soul Warden You'll want her two sisters, I named them in my last comment.
Elvish Mystic et al. is nice, you are in green, so you may want more ramp past a few dorks.
Shapers' Sanctuary erm... your commander gives everything bar herself hexproof. You won't be using this effect often at all.
Naturalize does too little. If you want enchantment/artifact hate, go for reusable rather than spot removal.
Elemental Bond and Triumph of Ferocity the draw is nice, but the card is better suited in a big stuff deck or in a deck with etb abuse, your deck isn't quite a bigstuff deck, but if you added more powerful creatures then it'd be better.
Krosan Grip same comment about naturalize, if you're going to keep one, keep this one due to split second.
Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist wants you to play in a go wide token strat too.
Aura Shards I'd be careful with playing with this, it is a very strong card.
Harmonize is fine, I do suggest you add more drawpower to your deck though.
Rhox Faithmender while great in a trotstani deck, does not do much for you in this deck, as you do not have all that much lifegain. Including the faithmender, you have 4 creatures which give you some form of lifegain.
Wrath of God interesting include, considering that you are very reliant on your own board state.
Terminus is fine, but again, you're very reliant on your own board state, so I'm not sure you want to include boardwipes...
Nissa, Genesis Mage is expensive and pretty bad compared to other nissa walkers. There are far, far better nissa walkers.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is a fantastic card, especially for tokens.
Reya Dawnbringer is very expensive for what she does. THere are cheaper ways to recur in white/green... if you even want to do that.
In the end, I feel like you've chosen two commanders now which really want to push you into a token strategy, and you've included some cards which are fantastic for token decks, and yet you have not built a token deck.
You really, really need more drawpower and ramp if you want to stay on your semi-combo big angels strategy.
If you want to go for angels, why not go angel tribal?

Thanks MegaMatt13! I was thinking of running Archetype of Imagination. I would definitely replace Brago if I would run it. Brago was just for the Reality Acid and other ETB triggers when flickering enchantments (mainly Ajani's Chosen and Eidolon of Blossoms). Archetype of Endurance is a bit to high of a CMC for its' impact on the board. Giving itself and my other creatures hexproof and taking it away from others is amazing, but I don't find hexproof to be a problem in my play group and Shalai, Voice of Plenty somewhat fulfills this role. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist was protection against crack backs, but she is a bit of a shoe in to be honest.

@Dankey ; Propaganda is a pillow fort spell at its core. All it does is discourage players from attacking you specifically. Derevi is one of the most creature-heavy decks in the format apart from Blood Pod, So being attacked shouldn't scare you as you can take most of the damage and block if you really have to. It also doesn't actually prevent combat in any way really... I find it unplayable in most Metas. if aggro is really troubling you I'd look at Willbreaker and Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist as answers (they have worked wonderfully for me at more casual aggro tables and the longer the game went on you eventually get Elesh out).
The one mana counterspells like Spell Pierce and the like or Swan Song indeed, can get the job done really easy if you're afraid of them drawing answers in a certain scenario... Back when she was played in 1v1 a lot of these were played like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile as well and they can still be worth it from time to time, it's just a Meta call really.
