Restoration Angel Discussion

QuietMyth on Competitive Aurelia Com(bat/bo)

Milesfuzz hey, thanks for the comment. Godo and Conscripts have been in this deck before, but they met their end on the chopping block because they only really have one good use. While Godo doesn't necessarily have to go get Helm, and he does put it into play, doing anything else is pretty useless. You still need 4 mana to equip barring any shenanigans happening, so you would prefer to just have Stonehewer Giant to do the job a hundred times better.

Conscripts doesn't do anything that Restoration Angel can't. Stealing an opponents creature and using it in 2 combats thanks to aurelia is cute, but I want more triggers from Dire Fleet Daredevil and Imperial Recruiter.

I think it just comes down to the number of slots in the deck, right now everything does a job that can't really be replaced.

Sorry I should have clarified. I meant how I helped TheErebos not asking him for advice. To go with your questions.

How well do you know cEDH? You do know that unless your running a combo deck multiple pieces of cards as a win con is too slow. You said you want to make a Boros color as competitive as possible. The cards you listed are not optimal and subpar.

You mentioned that you want to build a value town/stax(prison) hybrid. You are delving into combo pieces and not part of the lines you set your self up for. The main reason I listed the partners as commanders is because in a competitive meta life is a valuable resource if your going against Ad Naus type of decks the pressure Akiri gives is great. Having all the mana rocks in addition to stax/hate pieces will boost up her power and rack up damage as well as staxing the board. You break parity by gaining additional creatures for the value and go hatebears to swing and chip away at their life slowly while Bruse helps micro manage and enables higher outputs of damage.

Hatebear/Value Creatures:

Artifact Stax/Tax:

Enchantment Stax

Prison is a type of Stax, if you want to add in combo. The most efficient one in Boros is Kiki-Jiki and any creature that can untap him ex. Restoration Angel/Village Bell-Ringer.

Land destruction isn't fun.

That dosen't mean it is fun to play against any deck. Almost every deck has unfun elements. Is it fun to watch a KCI player combo (For me yes) the general public says no. Is it fun to lose on turn two to infect? No. Do you like getting Thoughtseized? No. LD is just another nail in the coffin for players who want to feel as if they have the best deck, but don't. I am sorry for being insulting here, but in a way it's true. And yet, we (most of us) still play Magic. Even through the LD, even through The Rack. The game is still overall fun. I bet you could look through everyone's deck, and find unfun things (If the decks were made on the principle of winning) to pick at. Even if you get staxed out with Trinisphere and Molten Rain, it could be Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel. I think that LD is not present enough in any (Non-Commander, because I know nothing about the metagame of EDH) format to warrant much hate, aside from Pauper LD.

Alright if your less worried about the tribal theme than there are a couple others that are quite useful. Here are some infinite combos that may be of help:

Thanks NeverCloud!

Ohhhh, so close with Yeva, Nature's Herald. I had actually looked at her, but unfortunately her text reads "green creatures". How ever, with that "nasty surprise" strategy in mind, I added Elvish Piper and Deathrender in. Protean Hulk, Eldritch Evolution, Pattern of Rebirth and, Birthing Pod (recommended by hkhssweiss) could all be great parts of the "Surprise Package" :). I like looking at it like that!

The flicker strategy would be great to bring more focus to, such a good point. I have an Eerie Interlude. With the amount of board wipes in my metta I was thinking Faith's Reward and Second Sunrise would double as responses and flickers (in a way) for my board-state. I could also use them after sacking Avatar of Growth through Ghave or another trigger. Flickerwisp, Conjurer's Closet and Restoration Angel will definitely get some serious consideration as I work with the final deck list!

Painful Quandary could be such a perfect include and really brings a paint theme to completion, especially if I go the "lands matter's" route with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen as an include. And with that direct pain strategy in mind, Exquisite Bond becomes a huge include. I appreciate the combo potential with Sanguine Bond as well, however at this point it seems like its only reason for being in there would be Exquisite Bond due to the lack of other life gain in here. Huge thanks for the Exquisite Bond idea though - that could be an easy 30 life in a turn, while swinging my opponents down! Awesome.

I think I'll end up working with two different builds of this deck because of different metta's I might play in. One group has less of an enjoyable view for control, so for them I think I'll go "land's matter". However, I really want to work on the control version as well to make a version that is more of a fast, interesting combo deck. I think Bitterblossom could work in the either one, especially with the fuel it gives Ghave and a few other sac engines in here.

Awesome, NeverCloud - your comment definitely helped it evolve a good step! Thanks again.

I'm really loving the deck idea! Maybe add Yeva, Nature's Herald for a nasty surprise when you tempt them while Ob isn't out, then flash him in when they pay costs to do a search (:

-Flickerwisp Conjurer's Closet Eerie Interlude and Restoration Angel can work with creatures like Avatar of Growth to get additional procs of their ETB. There are other flicker options as well if you want to go this route.

Given the nature of your deck, adding Painful Quandary to punish people further (with Wound Reflection that's potentially 10 life paid to cast a spell) could work.

Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo is a nice alt win con, with the latter giving you more survival as you drain your opponents' life.

For your Maybeboard, looks like you have a few very separate ideas going on. I personally like the black control you've got going, so you could build more on that. Bitterblossom and Mind Slash can be a harsh combo to have out for your opponent(s), especially if you just got rid of their hands with Mindslicer.

Hope this helps!

You are in my realm this time with your flicker deck Wow that's a high curve. 17 of you flicker targets cost 5+ mana. Its ok to have big value cards, but when you have so many you aren't helping yourself.

The first thing I would do if I were you is trim back your mana curve. Some lower costing card I'd suggest are

I'd also recommend running more protection for Brago so he can get in more. Off the top of my head I can only think of Whispersilk Cloak,Swiftfoot Boots,Lightning Greaves and Rogue's Passage.

And I'd also recommend running more flicker effects. some good ones would be

As always these are just suggestions, but I believe that these cards would improve your game-plan immensely
