Rout Discussion

SteelSentry on BIRD TRIBAL (Soraya)

I would definitely put some kind of wrath in here, if not WoG then Fumigate or Rout.

The Candles of Leng for card draw is an interesting idea, I didn't think of that. However, I would recommend using Jayemdae Tome, Staff of Nin, or Farsight Mask instead. The first one has the same effect as the candles without revealing the card, and the other two are card draw that doesn't require mana.

Definitely needs more enchantments that focus on buffing/taking advantage of all the tokens Rith will be able to spew out every turn.

Parallel Lives is a critical card for tokens, and lets the Saprolings from Rith grow exponentially over several turns. I also recommend the newly printed Anointed Procession, since it does the same thing but costs a lot less (they're like $2 right now).

Beastmaster Ascension and Cathars' Crusade are two enchantments that grow the size of your creatures as lot as you keep spamming them out. Ascension takes about two combat phases to activate, on average, but there is a very good chance you can drop it and immediately swing in for a ton of damage. Crusade is incredible with effects that put multiple creatures into play at the same time (a la Rith); even if a measly three or four Saprolings are grown the first time, that's still a +3/+3 permanent buff on ALL your creatures.

Cryptolith Rite lets you accelerate your more expensive spells out quicker by turning all your creatures into rainbow mana dorks. Oh, you just topdecked Genesis Wave? GG

Impact Tremors is a cheap enchantment to drop early on that offers powerful group slug hate whenever Rith spews out her tokens.

Second Harvest can be cast in response to an opponent declaring an attack phase to create a ton of blockers out of nowhere, or during their end step before your turn so you have creatures ready to swing in for hurt.

For a token deck, you sure are running quite a few boardwipe spells (I counted 7 at time of this comment). I see you running cards like OG Avacyn and Dauntless Escort, but you can't rely on those draws, and you need to be focused more on aggression than board control. Having more tokens IS board control, and Rith is pretty good at doing that. If you want another protection spell, Heroic Intervention is a good choice. Five boardwipes is probably the right number; I'd remove Desolation Giant (pretty bad card in this list) and Rout (too expensive, and not foil :P). If you're set on having lots of boardclears, Hour of Reckoning is an absolute must.

Sorry for the long post! Hope you have the stamina to read it all! :D

Nukulargear on Rise of the Angels

I've tried the mono-white angel EDH before. Never panned out, but since angels are usually expensive creatures, Quicksilver Amulet is usually a good idea. You also might want to consider more board wipes like Wrath of God and Rout. I'd also consider removing Avacyn, Guardian Angel because she doesn't really do enough (at least in my opinion).

Also, Bastion Protector is another consideration. I'd recommend replacing the eidolon with it. It's also a good idea for all EDH decks to have a couple board wipes because things can get quickly out of hand. This deck would benefit from them because of very quick recovery with a cheap commander. Two good (and cheap) examples which wouldn't wipe your artifacts are Kirtar's Wrath and Rout.

Grind on My commander can beat up your commander

Looks like a fun deck, Rafiq is great and can be very powerful!
Saw your deck on the commander thread, here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them you like and are in your budget. Cheers!
Lands: cut Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree and some of your ETB tapped lands for some etb untapped multicolor lands to help your color production be reliable: Command Tower, Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, City of Brass, Breeding Pool.
ramp: Sol Ring, Simic Signet,Azorius Signet, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach.
control:
Wrath of God > Terminus.
Rout > Martial Coup.
Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift.
recursion:
Eternal Witness, Seasons Past, Mystical Tutor, Archaeomancer.
card draw:
Recurring Insight, Fact or Fiction, Stroke of Genius.
things to help Rafiq of the Many crush your enemies:
Rancor, Inquisitor's Flail, Steel of the Godhead, Shield of the Oversoul, Swiftfoot Boots, maybe Command Beacon, Sword of Vengeance, maybe Sigarda's Aid.
given how many creatures creatures you run, you might want some tricks to protect your board from boardwipes. Bastion Protector, Make a Stand, Dauntless Escort may or may not be useful.
anyway those are just the things i thought of. I built a rafiq deck a while ago, you should be able to find it in my profile if you want any more suggestions, i went a little bit more in on the pillowfort/control/combo side of things but the list was a bit pricier too. anyway have fun and keep crushing!
cheers

KingMathoro on Thalia lock em up!

The pleasure is all mine RedStanley

First off, I like what you got going on so let's build on that. First, I would either add Wrath of God or replace Day of Judgment with it, purely because the dis-allowance of regeneration. Other board wipes that are viable are Fumigate, Akroma's Vengeance, Planar Cleansing, Descend upon the Sinful, Rout, Austere Command and Mass Calcify Secondly you have a lot of creatures and there is a new card coming out called Oketra's Monument which is great for this style of deck. Moving onto your protection, Aegis of the Gods is great and all but Leyline of Sanctity and Witchbane Orb are also nice and can give you extra protection. Along with a card called Personal Sanctuary you will be safe from bolts and what have you. Another card you may want to consider is Crawlspace or Silent Arbiter to help prolong your life. Next we need to focus on alternate win cons, because let's face it sometimes you can't beat face. I recommend adding Helm of Obedience because it combos with Rest in Peace allowing you to mill someone out. The next alternate win con will be Sun Titan, Blasting Station, and Angelic Renewal which creates an infinite loop of sorts. Now for beating face I recommend getting some more anthem effects, things like Always Watching , Cathars' Crusade(maybe), and mayhaps an Akroma's Memorial. I know that I am recommending a lot of non-creature stuff but it works with that you are doing. However there are some creatures that I can recommend, that can help you pull out a creature based win, those being Odric, Lunarch Marshal,, Eidolon of Rhetoric Angelic Skirmisher, Suture Priest, Windborn Muse, Odric, Master Tactician, these guys awesome. Also while mentioning creatures, there are some that seem very under-performing, such as Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish, while you have around 60 some odd percent of creatures that are humans you still have the 40% that's not. For money cards I would look for things like Mana Crypt and what have you, things to help you ramp up. Also as I am sure you are aware, mono-white and card draw don't exist really. Which is why I like Staff of Nin and also Mind's Eye and also for some tutoring Ring of Three Wishes they are all helpful in that regard. On that thought as well, it just occurred to me that the combination of Land Tax and Scroll Rack is almost unparalelled for mono white. I would also recommend a fetchland or two, this is becuase they give you the ability to shuffle your deck for a reasonable cost which is nice. Looking at your maybeboard now I really like Pearl Medallion, Weathered Wayfarer, and also the Mark of Asylum. Those are all nice. Speaking of the Asylum, a card that works well with that is Dolmen Gate making the only way that your creatures receive damage is through blocking. OK... I think I am done. I apologize for the long response but I hope this gave you some thoughts.

MunchingAberration on AROOOOOOOOOOOOOO (Werewolf Primer)

I haven't - at the moment I'm running Rout and Akroma's Vengeance for wraths, because they both allow you to act on an opponent's turn (allowing me to get some sweet, sweet flips). I've definitely been blown out by Phyrexian Rebirth by my friend's Trostani, Selesnya's Voice deck, haha!
