Reya Dawnbringer Discussion
4 days ago
Yeah, so is it my imagination that Sram, Senior Artificer, the most popular mono-white commander on EDHREC and one of the cheapest card draw engines in the Command Zone in the game, next to Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Nin, the Pain Artist, Sygg, River Cutthroat, and the almighty Thrasios, Triton Hero, while Sram also being one of the most efficient after it hits.
Or you know, Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, a repeatable tutor in the command zone, Djeru, With Eyes Open, another tutor, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, repeatable recursion much like the old Reya Dawnbringer, or in red Daretti, Scrap Savant, one of the most popular mono-red commanders (#2 on EDHREC) with built in card selection, recursion, and more, emblemmy recursion on top, Zada, Hedron Grinder, a storm commander that gains card advantage with effects like Expedite, Godo, Bandit Warlord being a tutor, Feldon of the Third Path being recursion that is repeatable.
And again, the other boros commanders like Depala and Munda.
I guess I was mistaken, and some of the most popular commanders of all time, like Zada storm on a budget, Sram, or Daretti never existed.

TurtleLordMTG,I know, the only recursion I really have is uhh Bladewing the Risen, Whip of Erebos, Unburial Rites , Karmic Guide and Reya Dawnbringer. I actually dont have any of the classic recursion spells or any of the good fetches too for that matter. I still need to get them but thanks for reminding me. i just wish they weren't so damn expensive ya know? maybe ill proxy lol.

Alright i get it, very nice. Still consider Reya Dawnbringer. First it is a nice combination with Buried Alive and then again you can combine it with Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur when you need to discard cards from your hand. Thanks for your reply!

I reckon average CMC probably needs to come down overall. You have almost no ramp in the deck, afterall, only like 5 cards. 21 at >5 CMC seems pretty whack, especially when your commander is a mana sink. Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves seems reasonable value with your creature synergies.
Felidar Sovereign seems not synergistic. Low life gain opportunities.
Reya Dawnbringer is clunk town, particularly with lots of other ways to reanimate/prevent creatures dying.
Hydra Broodmaster will probably be a 2 turn process. That's usually a 7/7 for 6, followed up by 3 3/3s if it lives. 19 power for 13 mana isn't really an exceptional rate on mana efficiency, and it offers so little utility.
Yosei, the Morning Star seems ambitious with your fairly small reanimator suite.
Sunscorch Regent seems a bit like a do-nothing fatty.
The Great Aurora feels pretty bad when you really aren't a dedicated token deck.
Angelic Arbiter is a giant awkward fatty that ALSO gives your opponent choices. Don't love it.
The 'aura package' might be too cute. I think you already are working in a lot of different directions there, between trying to be a counters deck, and a hatebears deck, and a tokens deck. Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim are not exceptional. This makes Lignify pretty bad too.
You have a variety of field sweeps despite being a creature deck. I don't think this is wrong, but given the effort you've put into 'indestructible synergy', the sweeps that bypass indestructible seem problematic for you. Note, this still leaves you with 5 sweeps after Hallowed Burial and Descend upon the Sinful are cut.

Hi! Welcome to EDH. Nice deck. As for me I'd make some additions. Creatures: Herald of War (strongly recommended for Angels/Humans tribal), Burnished Hart (everyone needs additional lands), Angel of Invention (useful creature without a doubt), Reya Dawnbringer (mana cost is high but her ability is nice). Artifacts: Sensei's Divining Top (card advantage), Ashnod's Altar (one of the best mana rocks. But you need tons of creatures to sacrifice so I advice you to think about token generators. For example Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Anointed Procession). Good luck!

Okay, take two with the new commander.
Shalai wants to go wide with a lot of tokens, then to pump them up with her ability, as you get a whole load of hexproof tokens that get +1/+1, so I will recycle the rhetoric I used with Trotstani about tokens. You should probably think about abusing a go-wide strategy.
I playtested this deck 5 times, you have a serious problem with a lack of card draw. I playtest until turn 8, and you were consistently running out of cards. If you wish to assemble your Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Platinum Angel + Shalai, Voice of Plenty + Tajuru Preserver combo, you need draw and tutors. For reference, my wizard deck combos off pretty reliably by turn 8, most combo heavy decks will combo off by turn 4 at the earliest, turn 10 at the latest.
Okay now to the cards:
I repeat myself with Soul Warden You'll want her two sisters, I named them in my last comment.
Elvish Mystic et al. is nice, you are in green, so you may want more ramp past a few dorks.
Shapers' Sanctuary erm... your commander gives everything bar herself hexproof. You won't be using this effect often at all.
Naturalize does too little. If you want enchantment/artifact hate, go for reusable rather than spot removal.
Elemental Bond and Triumph of Ferocity the draw is nice, but the card is better suited in a big stuff deck or in a deck with etb abuse, your deck isn't quite a bigstuff deck, but if you added more powerful creatures then it'd be better.
Krosan Grip same comment about naturalize, if you're going to keep one, keep this one due to split second.
Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist wants you to play in a go wide token strat too.
Aura Shards I'd be careful with playing with this, it is a very strong card.
Harmonize is fine, I do suggest you add more drawpower to your deck though.
Rhox Faithmender while great in a trotstani deck, does not do much for you in this deck, as you do not have all that much lifegain. Including the faithmender, you have 4 creatures which give you some form of lifegain.
Wrath of God interesting include, considering that you are very reliant on your own board state.
Terminus is fine, but again, you're very reliant on your own board state, so I'm not sure you want to include boardwipes...
Nissa, Genesis Mage is expensive and pretty bad compared to other nissa walkers. There are far, far better nissa walkers.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is a fantastic card, especially for tokens.
Reya Dawnbringer is very expensive for what she does. THere are cheaper ways to recur in white/green... if you even want to do that.
In the end, I feel like you've chosen two commanders now which really want to push you into a token strategy, and you've included some cards which are fantastic for token decks, and yet you have not built a token deck.
You really, really need more drawpower and ramp if you want to stay on your semi-combo big angels strategy.
If you want to go for angels, why not go angel tribal?

There's lots of options but do also be care of creature cards that say "When monster attacks" because when cheated it, they are not technically attacking because they weren't there during the declare attackers step in combat so their ability doesn't work if they were put in by Kaalia. Enter the battlefield effects are usually better unless the attack ability is too good not to have for a second swing in.
