Kvad on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

1 week ago

I've built the deck and played with it for a while. This deck is awesome. I've had a game where my opponent went back to full life from single digit after resolving a Resolute Archangel, and he immediately died getting smacked by an Aurelia wearing Argentum Armor and wielding Inquisitor's Flail.

That being said, I've had a hard time recovering after an artifact boardwipe. Creature boardwipes are manageable, but I often find myself in an unwinnable situation after an opponent resolves their Bane of Progress, Vandalblast, or Merciless Eviction. Cards like Boros Charm helps, but you don't always have access to it when you need it. What's your strategy for protecting your equipments against mass artifact removals?

I have a Roon ETB Deck. Here are a couple of cards I found to be all stars that you may want to consider:
Champion of Lambholt and Resolute Archangel

So I want to make another immortality deck and I was thinking of putting tribal gideon into the mix for Gideon of the Trials. Especially with the new rulings on planeswalkers. My thoughts were putting in the following cards:

Exquisite Archangel Lich's Mirror Platinum Angel Transcendence Platinum Emperion Worship Resolute Archangel Solitary Confinement so its kinda like the lich deck I have but I was thinking about making it mono white with Kytheon, Hero of Akros at the helm to keep the gideon emblem in affect.

Real question is, what should the other 90 cards be? What tactic would you run in mono white to try and become immortal? Or should I splash in and put some combos like Teferi's Protection/Render Silent + Elite Arcanist and Silence/Orim's Chant + Isochron Scepter then shove Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Then counterspell for a good amount of the rest.


I could run solider tribal and stop combat damage with Knight-Captain of Eos and Holy Day affects. Then run anthem to boost them. Maybe a token strategy?


Throw damage back into their face kind of cards like Comeuppance/Shining Shoal/Divine Deflection/Deflecting Palm/Reflect Damage and use Stuffy Doll/Spitemare/Coalhauler Swine/Mogg Maniac with Pariah?

Or possibly hate bears? Grand Abolisher/Kataki, War's Wage and so on?

Need some ideas on how to be the best jerk that no one wants to play with lol

Florg, thank you for your suggestion, I've thought about Children of Korlis a to exploit Necropotence like you said, but it would be worst than both Oketra's and Resolute Archangel on scenarios not involving necropotence on that specific turn. I guess it could payoff to have a lifesource that can be recursive with Sun Titan, but for I'm still tied between oketra's and resolute archangel, perhaps in the future if I change the deck into a more reanimate oriented build, with more reanimate spells then Children of Korlis will be added.

Mandalorian Thanks for the suggestions! I hadn't seen Call for Unity before and it seems pretty dope. Angel of Serenity seems like a really good idea, both for removal and for recursion! Resolute Archangel, but thanks for recommending it!
