Reya Dawnbringer Discussion
2 days ago
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.

Teal_Fox I love the idea of more untap abilities! Thousand-Year Elixir is definitely going in! I also love Scuttling Doom Engine! Most of what you recommended to cut I agree can go but War Elemental has been invaluable so far and as of right now still deserves a leading spot in the 99.
Poptartz95 thanks for the recommendation but Quicksilver Amulet is a bit too narrow. Also since I'm working on dropping my average cmc I see it's usefulness becoming even less. I have one tho and will play test it a bit and let you know.
bushido_man96 glad you chimed in! I've been thinking about trying Reya Dawnbringer in her just haven't given her a chance. Also Lifeline looks awesome! As far as steal cards go I'm only running a few because I don't really like them....
Thanks for the recommendations everyone once I get a few more cards I will update.

Also, you might run more theft cards, like Act of Treason, Lose Calm, Mark of Mutiny, and the like. Why fling your own creatures all the time when you can fling others? Steal a creature, attack with it, then throw it back to them. Now that's card value.
Here is the list I currently run:

I'm delighted to hear that my suggestions have been so well received! Looking at your list, it now boasts a clock that it didn't before. Regardless of whether Descendants' Path nabs a scary angel, it has the added benefit of threatening to do so. Opponents will never feel safe if you have this, and an angel on the board.
That being said, there are a couple of angels that I'm not the biggest fan of. These two could be replaced by two extra copies of Bruna, the Fading Light improve your inevitability. Akroma, Angel of Wrath folds to Path to Exile (unlike her red counterpart), and doesn't feel super good for an eight-drop. Reya Dawnbringer, while good, also loses to a Path, whereas Bruna will benefit your board-state the moment she hits the field. Also, Bruna can be flickered with Restoration Angel to start rebuilding the board faster (and possibly bring back Gisela for the meld).
So, there's one final thing that I noticed. Most of the Angels in your deck have a bagillion different keywords on them. So...what better jank way to win than a singleton copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal? Just a thought.

Hi DarkStarStorm, finally found the time to fiddle some more on this deck. Well, I guess your decklist was kinda on point. Tested different settings with 4 Descendants' Path and 4 Idyllic Tutor and only angels with no defenders plus some removals, but have to admit your suggestions are hard to beat. Now turn 4-5 the deck is running as it should be. Flexspot I filled with some badass angels I personally admire (Akroma, Angel of Fury, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Reya Dawnbringer). Hopeing for some more feedback, for now I have to change the deck description :D

@DarkStarStorm: Didn't know this card. But lets be realistic: First creatures out there are Defenders. Imagine that I now play Descendants' Path: I'm going to put my angels right at the bottom of the deck. On the other hand when I got enough mana to play an angel, the card isn't necessary anymore :o
@KongMing: Had a look at all of these angels, Reya Dawnbringer was the one I liked the most. But I'm still not sure how many of the Defenders would actually die before I'm set up with the angels, playtests are desperately needed ;) But I keep your suggestions in mind (also the one with the lands) and will take action after playtesting it.
@DarkEclipse18: Yeah, I think it's definitely not a tournament deck but built to play some kitchentable magic. But for the kitchentable it could be quite competitive, at least I hope so :D
