Requiem Angel Discussion

Hey, Caves of Koilos , Concealed Courtyard and Shambling Vent are more budget dual lands. Esper Panorama can search for a basic Plains or Swamp. Reliquary Tower is very good when drawing a lot of cards. Consider adding more cards that can search for Skullclamp? Games where you have Skullclamp are going to be much better than not therefore having more ways to get Skullclamp directly into your hand is pretty beneficial. For budget consider Open the Armory , Diabolic Tutor and Relic Seeker ?

Requiem Angel , Viscera Seer , Reveillark , Archon of Justice are all budget upgrades for cards here. Requiem is a 5/5 flier can be a finisher and in combination with another token producer, a sac outlet and Teysa can make a lot of Spirits. When Reveillark leaves the battlefield as a result of it dying it triggers Teysa getting to reanimate 4 creatures with power 2 or less which is good with afterlife creatures. Justice is a 4/4 flier who when it dies can exile any permanent; exile two permanents if it triggers Teysa.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Swamp
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Butcher of Malakir: don't need her since you have Dictate of Erebos .
  • Martyred Rusalka
  • Plagued Rusalka
  • Pious Evangel
  • Xathrid Necromancer
  • Harvester of Souls
  • Final Payment

+! My friend!

I won’t lie I’ve neither piloted nor even seen another Darien deck. I also rarely play white so my opinions might be limited but Imma try and throw some helpful suggestions at ya if I can.

Looking through the deck I would say you’re already well on your way to making this thing a real monster. Plenty of what I was originally thinking is already in. Since you’re running Urborg for those shenanigans you might consider Karma . With Urborg out it’ll hurt youre opponents for each land every turn and it’ll make a bunch of dudes for you. Even without it there is almost always someone playing black so it still serves to put some pressure on.

Marshal's Anthem allows for recursion of a key creature when or if its been hated out. The option of multikicking for multiple recursions is also nice.

When I first looked over the list I wanted to say Divine Visitation just because 4/4 angel’s is nicer than 1/1 soldiers lol but part of me wonders if it isn’t a “win more” card here. Unless you’re also willing to slot in Requiem Angel as a means of going infinite with any of your sac outlets.

I personally think Spear of Heliod might be worth a slot in here. Not only does it serve as an Anthem but it double’s as a threat for your opponents should Darien not be out. Even if he is the ability to, at instant speed, destroy anything that deals damage to you is nice. Niv-Mizzet, Parun comes to mind since we have one floating around in our meta.

I also really like Jade Monolith instead because it allows you to get Darien triggers even when you’re opponents are trying to avoid you. Angel's Trumpet might also do some work here. Particularly if it’s combined with Throne of the God-Pharaoh unless I am misunderstanding when the triggers would occur.

That’s all I got currently. Keep up the good work buddy! Glad to see another fan of Darien in the Deckwatch.

Hey, this is a good start, but I think you can expand on the idea of "sac them all" :)

If price is a concern then consider cutting Teferi's Protection ? It can clear a lot of price for more card interactions. Protection is a good card, but it's not worth $50 for a single card, taking up a third of the budget...

Budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

phsycord on Teysa Karlov's Citadel

Hi Masterful, thank you for taking a look at this deck. In the text below the deck you can see that I already got the great idea of Cruel Celebrant from your deck :) I just haven't put it into the list as of now, as they are just include cards I currently have. Also note the planned addition of Necropotence instead of Sultai Emissary .

Maybe I'll switch Falkenrath Noble with Athreos, God of Passage , giving me a similar effect with a funny politics interaction if we have an arch enemy on the table.

As for Liliana, Dreadhorde General I'm not so sure she will be able to stay on the board long enough to be relevant in my meta.

Bolas's Citadel I find really interesting. A bit similar to Ad Nauseam . Maybe I'll find a replacement for Requiem Angel with lower CMC and I'll put this one in and try it out.

Thanks for the advice crabclaw.

I've seen a lot of people saying Sadistic Hypnotist is scary, but doesn't fit super well. He was a nice sac outlet enabler but I may cut him and put in Yahenni, Undying Partisan .

Thopter Squadron is in there to go infinite with an altar, zulaport, and annointed procession. Its a bit tough to pull off, but the token creation can help with a couple different cards.

Open the Graves wasn't originally in, however it was subbed in because both Requiem Angel and old teysa don't trigger on spirit deaths. Extra Skullclamp s are spicy, but I wanted to ensure more value when working with me other cards.

If you're looking for cards to cut to reduce your cmc, then:

Sadistic Hypnotist -- it's a nice effect, but you can't combo this, you don't have a reanimator shell, and you're not exactly a discard-focused deck. Is too dependent on other specific cards.

Just checking, as you may already realize this, but stuff like Smothering Abomination 's second ability will not be doubled by Teysa Karlov .

I'm not super sold on Seraph of the Scales as a commander card. I've not seen it played so I may not be the best judge.

Thopter Squadron is a combo with other cards, sure, but there are cheaper, more concise combos. Look at Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar .

Requiem Angel is good with Divine Visitation in particular, but is super-high cmc, and won't be helpful at all in the case that you just have the tokens from your Afterlife cards.

Several of your 5-6 drop enchantments and sorceries could easily be swapped. Martyr's Bond does a little bit more for you than Grave Pact , depending on if you have one of your three treasure-generating cards out, which themselves are dependent on other things in order to create any treasure tokens. Not sure if the potential synergy is worth it.

Black Market will be nice in some cases, but will otherwise result in either a) unused mana or b) a blowout if anyone points removal at it. It's too undependable a source of ramp, especially because it limits your usage of the mana to your main phase. That you don't have a reliable mana sink with which to use the mana is even less ideal. More efficient, consistent sources of ramp will work better in its slot.

Is Open the Graves better than Field of Souls ? I like the latter much more in that it gives you flying creatures that are also Skullclamp -able.

Some of these cuts below are for efficiency to reign in your cmc, others because there are better cards. Are you looking to make a lifegain-matters deck or a tokens/aristocrat deck? You have a ton of lifegain sources that situationally come into play.

Consider cutting some of the permanent-based sources of card draw for things like Night's Whisper or Sign in Blood . Harvester of Souls is great, especially with Teysa on the board, but it costs 6 mana and can potentially draw you into nothing. Or it may give underwhelming returns for the amount of mana you have to pay into it.

Cuts --

Impassioned Orator

Dutiful Attendant

Orzhov Cluestone and/or Orzhov Locket . Replace with Commander's Sphere

Debt to the Deathless

Exquisite Blood

Sanguine Bond

Open the Graves --> maybe consider Field of Souls . 1 cmc less, and flying is almost always relevant.

Requiem Angel --> I know the combo with Divine Visitation , but that's an 11 mana combo that still needs other cards for any sort of payoff.

Regna, the Redeemer --> Could still leave Krav, the Unredeemed in.

Butcher of Malakir .
