Könnte mMn etwas mehr REMMP gebrauchen.

Wenn ich recht sehe sind aktuell drin: - Arcane Signet - Boros Signet - Rakdos Signet - Pillar of Origins - Talisman of Conviction aber für nen 6 CMC Commander sind 5 Ramp-Spells etwas wenig. Ich persönlich empfehle noch 5 mehr, 10 sind immer ne solide Anzahl.

zum Beispiel: - Charcoal Diamond - Fire Diamond - Marble Diamond - Burnished Hart - Orzhov Signet - Mind Stone - Hedron Archive - Worn Powerstone - Fractured Powerstone - Talisman of Indulgence - Talisman of Hierarchy aber auch jeder andere Ramp spell bei dem man die Hälfte von dem Mana wieder rauskriegt, was man rein steckt. In der Regel ist mehr Mana = mehr gut, vor allem wenn man einen Commander hat der viel kostet und powerful ist.

Liebe grüße, ein -Spieler

In my opinion 31 lands are too few for having a consistently reliable mana base, especially considering that you don't run many mana rocks and that white does not have mana dorks: I would suggest you to add more Plains and a Drifting Meadow which is convenient as you can cycle it just in case. I assume the deck is on a budget, so let's not consider expensive mana rocks, but a Marble Diamond should be helpful. As most of your creatures are either humans or angels, Pillar of Origins is a cheap rock (both CMC and $ wise) that could have some use.

To make some space, I'd start getting rid of sorcery speed spells providing little added value such as Gather the Townsfolk or redundant as Silverflame Ritual.

Field of Ruin is a great ramp card for 2 generic mana, so if I don't have Pillar of Origins I can use that to ramp! <3

golgarigirlTriusMalarky the point is that with 2xFountain of Renewal, 1x Ajani's Welcome, 3x Revitalize and 4x Chaplain's Blessing I'll either use them to gain health or use it for storming with tokens. This also works with Archangel of Thune. If I get rid of Chaplain's Blessing I will have to have some sort of lifegain card, and with Resplendent Angel this card works perfectly, as it gives 5 health. If I were to run Angel of Vitality, I would have to waste a turn playing her in order to gain 1 more life per lifegain, and it won't even guarantee that i'll have over 25 health, while I could be casting Resplendent Angel. Relying upon enchantments and artifacts for lifegain could go wrong in being destroyed by a spell, while an instant is an instant. Sure, no one can protect against hand control, but regardless i don't think chaplain's blessing would be their first choice if they knew my strategy and saw my anointed procession in my hand. Hedron Crawler are like Pillar of Origins but not as good for angels. So, I would rather add more Pillar of Origins than Hedron Crawler; also Hedron Crawler is a creature which is more susceptible to being bolted or destroyed while Pillar of Origins is an artifact. Certainly Ajani's Pridemate would be very useful, but if I don't have something like 4x Healer's Hawk and multiple lifegain events triggered, it won't be a big card. However, that's why I have so many lifegain cards! So, yes, I'll consider Ajani's Pridemate!

TriusMalarky If I draw a Pillar of Origins on my 2nd turn, I'll be able to playResplendent Angel and Chaplain's Blessing both on turn 3, thus having a 4/4 angel as soon as possible! If I have Prism Ring and Fountain of Renewal, I would have to play multiple of them in order to even gain 4 life per turn, even with Angel of Vitality! And if I don't have Resplendent Angel then Angel of Vitality is useless! What is the point of having 1-drops? Chump blockers? I don't know of any angelic 2-drops, and the entire point of having Pillar of Origins is to cast angels, as it must make me choose a creature type. I do have Bishop of Wings and Tithe Taker as 2-drops, and I won't need ramp for these as they are 2-drops.

I think you should drop the Pillar of Origins since Unclaimed Territory is just a better version of it.

Play 4 Expedition Map instead of Pillar of Origins so you can get the tron land faster. Also take out the four Darksteel Citadel and put in four Eldrazi Temple. For in tribe creatures Reality Smasher is good.
