Hikarumei on Faeries Tribal

so the way I see it you're actually quite close (33 basic lands means 25 basic lands brings you up to 82)

Sooooo creatures

  • Zephyr Sprite (basic 1 drop flyer, but a 1 drop flyer is good on its own)
  • Wydwen, the Biting Gale (3/3 flyer with an ability that gives you bounce to save itself or add faerie casts)
  • Wasp Lancer (3 mana faerie flyer, that's it)
  • Vendilion Clique (ok, pricey but a good way to say no to an incoming problem)
  • Thieving Sprite (another way to say no to an incoming threat)
  • Silkbind Faerie (untap effects are very exploitable, although often rare)
  • Silkbind Faerie (easy to be a 3/3 flying vigilance for 3)
  • Ringskipper (this one is kinda mostly filler but could be obnoxious to get rid of)
  • Quickling (ok I think this is a diamond in the rough, 2 mana, get a body AND save a faerie from impending doom)
  • Oona's Gatewarden (i know defender BUT WITHER IS SUCH A GOOD MECHANIC)
  • Nightveil Sprite (2 mana 1/2 flyer that lets you look at the top card of your library, with the option to toss)
  • Mistbind Clique (forcing your opponent into an all out play can create quite the opening, timing it before the end of a phase limits their options on what they can do with all that mana)
  • Metropolis Sprite (With anthems that ability could be nasty, especially since early game flyers are often going unblocked)
  • Knacksaw Clique (I hate myself for suggesting this monster of a card but even if you aren't stealing their cards, your permanently removing them and that's just nasty)
  • Faerie Vandal (drawing 2 cards in a turn isnt hard in blue, so in many cases it will get +1/+1 every turn)
  • Faerie Mechanist (counts as an artifact AND sifts for more)
  • Fae of Wishes (that adventure lets you pull solutions out of thin air)
  • Eye Collector (1/1 with a decent ability)
  • Brazen Borrower (again not budget but another great adventure)
  • Faerie Guidemother (1 drop white with an ok adventure option)
  • Phyrexian Metamorph (clone that can hit artifacts always good, especially in EDH)

My sanity is lasping soooooo…. Also might want to think of artifact / enchantment recovery cards and good ol’ Elixir of Immortality

I find that there's enough annoying enchantments out there to justify mainboarding two Mortify . Looks like a fun cat build

Drakorya: i'd recommend cutting down to 3 colors. i'd start with green of course, but then if you add black you get Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy . the choice of colors may depend on your choice of removal. Mortify , Ride Down , and Bedevil come to mind.

Self-Tithe Liturgy

Sorcery

As an additional cost to cast Self-Tithe Liturgy, pay X life.

Search your library for a card of converted mana cost X, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library afterward. Until the end of turn, you may pay X life and discard a card from your hand to cast that card without paying its mana cost.

Orzhov demands that your tithes be paid. No, no, put that money away. Nothing less than your own blood will absolve you of your debts.


I'm not sure if it's broken. But it can be a real bomb in lifegain decks. It can also save you in the early game if your board is not yet stable. Desperately need to remove a dangerous threat with a Mortify or Despark that's buried somewhere in your deck? Cast this, discard a card, and pay 6 life or 4 life to get the right removal out and played. Or maybe you need to find your 4-mana combo piece; 8 life is a small price to pay if your combo gets you the win on your turn. Even with such a steep price, I think the sheer versatility of this card makes it playable in almost every Orzhov, Mardu, and Abzan deck.

Also, Revenge of Ravens might be a decent lifegain tool with a political bent. Same with Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Authority of the Consuls .

They're very likely not be worth the slots but there's always Falkenrath Noble , Zulaport Cutthroat , Blood Artist . They're nice because they synergize with your removal plan. The family of Soul Warden cards are decent but probably not worth it without lifegain synergies. Lol add a Karlov! Pontiff of Blight and Blind Obedience can net you some fine Extorts.

This is all assuming you need help grinding out lategame. I think we briefly discussed it?

Generous Gift is pretty great if you feel you want more removal. Mortify has the versatility too.

Teysa Karlov is really good in any token build and any deck with Seraph of the Scales .

Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is also really good in these builds, essentially giving you the revive side of revive / revenge repeatedly and with no CMC limit.

Here is my Orzhov build on angels, if you want to peek and compare. I like what you are working on. Orzhov Angels Thrones

You should look into a sideboard. Any Black/White deck has access to a lot of really good sideboard cards. My suggestions there are to start with 3x The Elderspell (for planeswalker heavy opponents), 3x Mortify (for Fires of Invention decks and decks with big critters), 3x Despark (for either of the first two mentioned), 3x Oath of Kaya (for aggro opponents), and 3x Dreadhorde Invasion (for early sticking threats against control, and it works really well with Divine Visitation).
