Platinum Angel Discussion

Hi Again xXImpetuSXx,
Ho, indeed, my bad. :(Sorry, I didn't memorize the Ban and Restricted List. :(
Thanks for pointing that out, you saved me some money mate !
Hi Again ghoul_Legion
Yeh, Aurelia, the Warleader RRWW and Akroma, Angel of Fury RRR aretricky to play. I often face the situation where I'm missing White or Red Manas. That's why I put mostly two-colors-lands and Bounces-lands ( Izzet Boilerworks etc etc )
Even Entreat the Angels without Miracle is just unplayable.
Yeah, I messed up the lands ratio as well, sorry. I'll fix that in a few days.
I don't want to annoy you with tons of questions heh. Your advices are extremely precious, for I'm not an hardcore MTG Player and your advices are extremely pertinent / relevent !!
Thanks again for your time !!

You might want to run a second Platinum Angel just in case the first on blows up or if you get one in your starting hand.

lots of humans, maybe you should streamline it to that. I enjoy the tribals, and though people say Coat of Arms is overdone in our group I disagree. 1 of never hurt anything, so I would put that in there. Get rid of the treefolk, it doesnt fit. I like the angel for its ETB, but its not a human, and thats about all i like. If youre going to go big with an angel, get something that really fucks your opponents.
I mean, you can get Platinum Angel for one more and not lose the game. Advanced search for white or green angels CMC 6 and see whats out there, or scrap it and get heavy with human buffs. Sigarda, Heron's Grace and my favorite eldrazi hoser Sigarda, Host of Herons should be in consideration.
Heroic Intervention is a new favorite of mine, and is a must for any green deck IMO, especially with all the land destruct going around, your opponent will learn his lesson quickly. Thats what i see at first anyways.

Hello again xXImpetuSXx
I'll follow your advice, and try to play with 2 Entreat and None / One Bonfire !
Also, I have a Aurelia, the Warleader in my stock, do you think she'll be useful somehow ?? I love this card so much, it's hard to put her aside ! ( Same goes for Akroma, Angel of Fury and Platinum Angel.
Thank you for answering, your help is much appreciate !!

Even if a card is printed different, which many are, for example Karmic Guide, you have to play by the Oracle rule.
In addition, they publish specific rulings on cards that are unclear, or have questionable interactions.
In the case of Master of Cruelties, using this link http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=368981, you will find several rulings, the one that clarifies the interaction that you are discussing, ie: if he didn't attack, does his if he is not blocked trigger, and when does it trigger, it is very clearly laid out.
Rulings 4/15/2013 An ability that triggers when something attacks and isnt blocked triggers in the declare blockers step after blockers are declared if (1) that creature is attacking and (2) no creatures are declared to block it. It will trigger even if that creature was put onto the battlefield attacking rather than having been declared as an attacker in the declare attackers step.
1) Triggers in the "Declare Blockers Step, After Blockers are Declared"2) It further clarifies the ruling "It will trigger even if that creature was put onto the battlefield attacking rather than having been declared as an attacker"
It's very clearly been ruled.
1) Attack with Kaalia of the Vast
3) After blockers have been declared, IF: Master of Cruelties is attacking (do not confuse with attacked), AND, No creatures were declared blocking it, you will trigger Master of Cruelties, and the opponents life will become 1.
4) Master of Cruelties says Master of Cruelties assigns no combat damage this combat, so he can't kill the opponent, however, Kaalia of the Vast is still attacking (and assuming unblocked), will resolve 2 points of combat damage to that player. That players life is 1 during the declare blockers step. So when Kaalia of the Vast hits for 2 during the combat damage step, she eliminates an opponent, if no other effects like Angel's Grace or Platinum Angel, etc are in effect.
Works exactly as intended an expected with Kaalia of the Vast. They can lookup the rulings on http://gatherer.wizards.com/ if they are still unsure, but this is 100% how it works. They've been robbing you of victories! :)

Also @lindleya1, Platinum Angel is how.
Now imagine I play the angel, then play Abyssal Persecutor, and wait until everyone else would've, under normal conditions, lost the game. What happens if I then play Merciless Eviction?!! XD (evil laugh)

only reason I dont run Platinum Angel is because I can Mayael it.

Hey man back again I can't stay away. Cruel Bargain and Infernal Contract want to see play in a deck like this, casting them at 1 or 0 life would be awesome! Wretched Confluence belongs. Soul Channeling is flavorful protection for Platinum Angel.
