@kameenook: there are some different applications. You cannot target creatures that would deal damage to your opponents with Deflecting Palm.

More important, Deflecting Palm prevents the damage and then deals the same amount to the creatures' controller. So it never deals infect or commander damage.

Mirror Strike on the other hand just redirects the damage to the controller, so that a commander could deal 21 dmg to its controller or an infect creature could deal 11 infect to its controller. While this may be a cornercase it is a really sweet one at least.

But in the usual situation where you are beeing attacked by a non-commander creature without infect, Deflecting Palm is more efficient, yes.

No Mercy and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts can easily be removed from the board, I'd rather play more instants. I've thought about Rout, maybe I should put it in for it's flash ability. I'll put Cyclonic Rift in some time, and I really want to put in Comeuppance, Mirror Strike and Entrapment Maneuver to try them out

Hi,

your deck-idea is great! +1

I once thought about a similar deck, but it was more goofy. It tried to incentivize the opponents to attack each other and then cast pump spells and cards like Berserk or Blood Frenzy on the attacking creatures - ideally on their commander. Your deck somehow reminded me of that idea. I think, I'll have to start working on that again.

Some suggestions:

The following cards were in the deck I mentioned before and could be nice in yours as well:

That's all for now. Let me know what you think

Have you considered Mirror Strike? I run it in my build:

  1. It can be fetched by Sunforger.

  2. It's a blowout.

  3. It ruins Craterhoof Behemoth's day.

  4. It's epic.

Bisher hast du noch nicht viel Grund, Sunforger zu spielen. Die Folgende Liste ist nur 'ne Ansammlung von Optionen und sollte sicherlich nicht komplett gespielt werden, ich wrde aber allgemein empfehlen, einfach den Sunforger zu cutten, wenn du dir Gedanken darum machst, ob dein Engel-Thema verwssert. Meist baut man automatisch ein Sunforger-Deck, wenn er in der Liste ist.

That's a lot to work through :) Thanks for the suggestions, will see what I can do with them.

Most of my instants have actually saved my life or won me the game Mirror Strike for example. Holy Day does same as fog, but for instead of , both would be useful.

Gonna keep Animal Boneyard for now, gain life from chump blockers, or salvage a board wipe to some degree.
