Reya Dawnbringer Discussion
21 hours ago
Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal are awesome for this style of build with a lot of high cost creatures. You can flash in your creatures on the end step, which is a pretty big deal, and paying 4 on turn 4 and 4 again on turn 5 is much different than paying 8 on turn 8 (assuming no mana rocks). I haven'tried explanar, caged sun, or gauntlet of power because my mana base is setup different. I use Coalition Relic, Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus and the 2 cost mana rocks.
Sunscorch Regent and Taurean Mauler are awesome definitely run Sunscorch if you aren't married to angel tribal. I don't care for Malignus that much, it really needs trample to shine, and it will get smaller as the game goes a long.
I have had the same problem with Marshal's Anthem where it sits in the hand. Reya Dawnbringer is good, but I haven't been able to get Emeria Shepherd into play with the right situation, but it seems good against board wipe heavy opponents. I haven't tried out Dawnbreak Reclaimer I am interested to check it out though, but it does seem situational.
For this style of deck I personally wouldn't run Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, orHellrider. Kalemne, dies too easily and doesn't have evasion, plus gets worse as the game goes long. Instead of Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder I would Duelist's Heritage you lose the lifelink piece but its much harder to remove. My problem with Adriana, Captain of the Guard is that you have to attack everyone to get max value, and that makes it so everyone at the table hates you. I haven't played with Adriana at all, but ive use the myriad cards, and its similar.
Tajic, Blade of the Legion is solid. If you gives a blocker against the big dumb creature on the board, and when you get battalion online it gets huge. Iroas, God of Victory seems reasonable, but may not be necessary with all the protection spells you have, but maybe you cut a protection spell for Iroas, he offers decent utility.
I haven't used Crown of Doom but it actually seems pretty good, I will need to check that one out as well.
It will interfere with your curve a bit but True Conviction is good for a deck like this, if the curve can support it.
Mana cards to check out Gift of Estates I run instead of Armillary Sphere its more conditional the mana savings is pretty big. Another interesting card is Oath of Lieges, I am still undecided on it, since its awesome if you are behind on lands, but a dead card if you are head or tied on lands.

How do you find Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal work for you? I recently added Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, and Crucible of Worlds route and have been pretty happy with it. I was thinking they may be a little slow actually.
In my experimenting with Marshal's Anthem in the past it always ends up a dead card in hand for me. Does it work for you? Have you tried Emeria Shepherd, Reya Dawnbringer, or Dawnbreak Reclaimer? Emeria is incredible with fetch lands. Yet I frequently find that there isn't anything yet in my yard to recover... and a beater that utilizes Aurelia's ability might be better.
I was thinking of going more towards the lines of Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Serra Ascendant, Galepowder Mage, Iroas, God of Victory, maybe even Hellrider.
You are absolutely right about Mask of Memory! I think I will replace some of the other high cost card draw with it, Rogue's Gloves and Sword of Fire and Ice . I might even add Markov Blademaster, Mirran Crusader and Oketra the True to double the triggers.
I totally will be getting a copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal. I was just looking at him actually. I just had had a chance to check out SteveSketches recommendation of Concerted Effort which was totally awesome! Thank you SteveSketches! Indestructible Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and a flying Iroas, God of Victory were rather awesome. excepts I was still obliterated that game. So I think the similar effect from Odric, Lunarch Marshal is going to be awesome as well.
I keep on wanting to add Karmic Guide but it is such a combo piece. I want to do it justice with more combo pieces but I usually find myself avoiding combos... usually ;)
I was recently looking at Crown of Doom, do you have any experience with it? I think it might be great with the double attack phases!
Thanks for the commenting! :D

Not yet but I am looking to construct something similar. I'll let you know if I do.
I really like the pro-color element you have going. I run a pro-color Angel Tribal (work in progress) that I have been tweeking for a while and would love to put some of the angels I have kicking around tht didn't make the cut to use! Also I am just discovering Horde and it seems to be the answer to all the really bad tribal decks that never really work well.
I'm excited about;
Desolation Angel looks brutal in horde.
Herald of the Host Herald of the host looks fun!
Iridescent Angel sounds brutal to deal with.
Here are some recommendations based on my tribal deck;
Concerted Effort would probably work really well in this build.
Luminarch Ascension If you worked the rules for it it could be good with a d-6 dice.
Angel of Jubilation is super useful.
Angelic Skirmisher HAS to go in. She is just too good.
Twilight Shepherd could cause difficulties.
Anyway I'll stop pestering you and build my own deck lol... Sorry for the wall of text. I'll send you a copy when I do for it's is always good to collaborate eh?

Very ballsy mana curve. If I were you, I'd try to cut some of the more expensive and subpar creatures like Reya Dawnbringer and Moonveil Dragon for cheaper utility creature like Grand Abolisher or Weathered Wayfarer. The later is especially importan in R/W decks because otherwise you miss your land drops and fall behind on lands way too fast. I've seen it a dozen times with this color combination. Another good option of course would be Land Tax. I've found these cards to be very useful in decks that ramp only with artifacts.

This deck might be a good candidate for Enduring Renewal as it is Gift of Immortality on steroids. It works as recursion for your spite creatures and other creatures that take damage in your place, Then Sun Titan, Reveillark, Emeria Shepherd, Karmic Guide all mitigate the can't draw in to creatures downside while Reveillark, and Karmic Guide bounce back to your hand while on recursion Reya Dawnbringer seems like a nice fit.

Thank you all SO MUCH for all the suggestions! I certainly have a lot to think about haha!
Some initial thoughts though:
First, I've been trying to stray away from high white-devotion cards for a while because I mostly need red mana in this deck, BUT... once I've eventually improved my mana base(help please) I'll be able to include cards like Reya Dawnbringer, True Conviction, and Twilight Shepherd.
Second: This is still a very budget deck(which explains why the mana base has suffered so far), with no cards over $4, but the expensive cards like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Phyrexian Dreadnought are now on the radar because of the effect they could have in the deck.
Again, thank you all SO much! Keep the comments coming!

I can't recommend Reya Dawnbringer and Adarkar Valkyrie enough. Also, and I'm sure people get tired of me mentioning this one, Lifeline works well in a Brion deck, and would bring back cards like Serra Avatar and Hamletback Goliath. Yes, Lifeline works for other players, too, but you've got to figure you will get more value out of it than the others around the table will.
