Moonlit Wake Discussion

I would remove the following cards: 1. Soldier of the Pantheon- It has too small of an effect. 2.Blinding Light- It is Sorcery speed so it can only be used offensively and the effect is too small. 3. Defy Death- This effect is alright but is really situational. It is a victim of having only 100 cards.4. Staff of the Sun Magus- Too small of an effect.5. Scroll of Avacyn- Too small of an effect.6. Marble Diamond- Mediocre card that is just "alright".7. Coldsteel Heart- same as Marble Diamond.8. Reverse Damage- 100% reactive cards are often dead draws.9. Chastise- Same as Reverse Damage.10. Moonlit Wake- To small of an effect.11. Sun Droplet- +1 life a turn is awful. Use this card as a coaster.---The above cards are all bad and are easy cuts.-The last two cuts are hard, but id suggest one card for sure:12. Sensei's Divining Top- with only 1 card draw engine Well of Lost Dreams and no other shuffle effects, the top is not very good at all. Great card in a bad situation. I would cut it.---As for the 13th cut; you will have to playtest and see what feels underwhelming, too often.

I would cut 13 Plains.

Nah Jk

As for actual cuts, Belbe's Portal just never impressed me as opposed to actual ramp cards. However, it does allow for flash and a small mana reduction, so I might be wrong.

Staff of the Sun Magus just doesn't do enough. You'll be gaining excessive amounts of life anyway, so a 3-mana artifact that lets you gain 1-2 life a turn is pretty much pointless.

Chastise and Reverse Damage seem to expensive mana wise for what they do, unless your meta is heavy on people who attack with a single massive creature that doesn't have hexproof for some reason.

Moonlit Wake also seems like too little effect. If you really want that effect, Ashes of the Abhorrent is strictly better in Angels outside of Reya Dawnbringer, which you aren't even playing

Soldier of the Pantheon seems low effect. Even if your opponents are playing heavy multicolor cards, I doubt it gains more life than just a Soul Warden effect (which I also don't suggest playing)

Oketra's Monument, Scroll of Avacyn, and Sun Droplet also seem too low effect to be worth a card slot. Sun Droplet is only good if you want a lot of whenever you gain life triggers, like in Karlov of the Ghost Council. Oketra's Monument is a bad Pearl Medallion, and I don't think the warrior tokens are too important in your deck. And Scroll of Avacyn is just pretty bad.

That's what I saw to cut. I, too, am building Lyra Dawnbringer (I pulled a foil at prerelease!), do you think you could help me with cuts?

Gonna do what I usually do and brainstorm a bunch of cards in the vain hope that some of them will be of use:

Maybe Martyr's Bond instead of e.g. Grave Pact? Dunno if you produce enough enchantments and/or artifact permanents to make it worth it but it could finish off everthing your enemies own that were exempt from e.g. Cataclysm.

Maybe Cauldron of Souls as a source of backup recursion which can save more than just your commander? (And she'll shed that -1/-1 counter pretty fast.)

Tombstone Stairwell is a pet card of mine and I'd love for it to make a comeback. Maybe also consider other, similar cards like Curse of Disturbance, Benevolent Offering or Alliance of Arms?

In the same vein, maybe a non-Creature card that benefits from enemy creatures like Bloodchief Ascension, Authority of the Consuls, Ashes of the Abhorrent, (Carnival of Souls) or (Moonlit Wake)? (I assume you've already considered e.g. Blood Artist.)

@Vaan

This is better advice than I was expecting. So. Sincerely, thanks for it. =)

Building and playing decks with a lot of single copies is something I'm used to and familiar with, many of my decks have various ways to play it due to my not having several copies of almost all the cards in a deck. Its hard to explain, but there is usually a varied way to play the deck based on how it comes up. This makes the deck a little less predictable. Though I'm still working on that trait for this one.I've never really been a fan of decks with many 4 offs, to me those decks seemed geared toward a single strategy or combo, there's less variety and challenge to playing a deck like that for me. A few of My decks usually have multiple strategies, and the less predictable outcome of each game challenges me to play on the fly.

I would like to keep as many Angel types as possible. Angelic Page, is in there for early-game defense mostly. Decree of Justice, I don't even use the ability to create soldier tokens. I've even debated using a few copies of Illusory Angel, just to have some Angel type creatures early game.

I do plan to cut Angel's Tomb and Angelic Armaments for two more copies of Quicksilver Amulet. Ways to reduce the CMC, like Herald of War or a couple copies of Helm of Awakening. I haven't decided yet, depending on how it plays with the amulets. I'm also looking to replace Moonlit Wake with Proper Burial.

The Kaldra artifacts are actually in there for Guardian of the Gateless, Sigarda's Aid allowing me to spend the eight mana I'd need to play and equip one, to have both equipped. The Flash ability isn't one I really take advantage of too often, but having it open comes in handy.

I will, however, be adding Archangel of Tithes and Emeria, The Sky Ruin. I wasn't even aware a land card had that ability. Might even add Vault of the Archangel, to help with life gain.

I honestly do appreciate the feedback, I just wish there were more low-casting cost Angels to use.

@griffstick: I feel like Angelic Renewal has too much value here, especially if I can have it out with Felidar Sovereign. I did some rearranging (In: Haazda Shield Mate, Marshal's Anthem, Fountain Watch, manlands for lifegain triggers and the three you mentioned...Out: Mimic Vat, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Vassal's Duty, Moonlit Wake and Dawn to Dusk). Let me know what you think.
