If noncombat damage would be dealt to you, prevent that damage. You gain life equal to the damage prevented this way.

When Purity is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Purity Discussion

AkaAkuma on Boros | Gisela's Recipe For Scorched Elder Dragons

First of all thanks for your feedback, your comment is much appreciated!

You gave my allot of interesting thought to consider about, especially Volcanic Offering and Ghostly Prison are great cards i might add. And after checking your deck, Protector of the Crown and Purity might also be interesting additions to consider as well, but I'm unsure how well my mana curve would flow adding 2 more 6 mana creatures to it.

Actually I don't think Malignus ever had trouble getting through an opponents defense for me thus far. With the amount of wipes, trample and battlefield control I run he always has been able to bring allot of bang for his buck.

I agree the Isochron Scepter has better use with blue and I won't miss it whenever i play a game without it, however I consider this card a mini-game to this deck where whenever i find it, it's a fun extra feature to my game. Deflecting Palm, Ride Down and Temur Battle Rage have been solid win conditions to this deck since the beginning and also Swords to Plowshares or Condemn are great imprints for the scepter. That Disenchant made it to this deck might be the poorer choice over Return to Dust or even Revoke Existence. But it's an extra imprint option and it helps my curve better. I have yet to decide if I should keep it however.

Browbeat is a bit tricky yes, also since it's this deck's only card advantage. But I've tried Emeria Shepherd and it's just too expensive. I always end up with better options to play. Urza's Incubator is in the same spot however. While this card greatly benefits me to get Gisela on the field asap, it can even work against me in the long run as angels are a popular theme to play and over the development of this deck fewer and fewer angels stay. But i also haven't updated this deck since the Amonkhet so far. Oketra's Monument might replace the incubator and Bloodlust Inciter, Onward / Victory or Pyramid of the Pantheon seem kinda interesting.

Lastly I used to run Inferno Titan in this deck, but when i saw the Assembled Alphas i fell in love with that card and decided to retire the titan for the alphas. I can't say I've had any regrets thus far.

I personally thing you would do better with Horde of Notions as your general. I know a guy at out local shop who has a crazy amount of synergy with the lorwyn block evoke elementals, like Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, and Slithermuse, while also boosting the mass removal with Bane of Progress and Dread, while Purity and Omnath, Locus of Rage provide deterrence.

it also would make sense for Dust Elemental, Grave Sifter, Incandescent Soulstoke, Smokebraider, and Flamekin Harbinger if you end up going that route. Finally, Thunderblust or Torrent Elemental are decent assault cards that provide recursion.

Purity You can draw a good sum of your library with Necropotence and gain tons of life. Good for late game.

yeah, Necropotence wouldn't be prevented by Purity, because its not damage, its loss of life. completely different mechanic.

but if you are screwed if someone is playing Angel of Jubilation

I do love the Necropotence+Purity+Reliquary TowerCombo. It's one that's very easily over looked, yet works so well. Thanks for pointing it out.
