Sephara, Sky's Blade Discussion

Spirits on Kaalia, M.D. of Destruction and Havoc

Hi Demarge,

Drakuseth, Maw of Flames won't work, because he enters the battlefield tapped an attacking, never attacks.

Skyline Despot is a risky Bloodgift Demon , may not provide the card advantage. But fun, agreed.

Sephara, Sky's Blade is difficult to utilize her lower cost mechanic, doesn't protect herself, and only protects creatures ( Avacyn, Angel of Hope protects all permanents. I'm still thinking on her, but seems wrong.

Vilis, Broker of Blood was a welcome replacement to Iona, Shield of Emeria .

Hey, interesting brew combining Goblins with Aurelia. White gives you lots of good support cards for Goblins that red doesn't offer.

This deck's budget is very low. It's going to be difficult to make any real improvements without spending an extra $15, but a $15 upgrade could do a lot for your deck. Even a $10 upgrade can help quite a bit.

Good budget ($3 or less each) cards to consider adding:

This could be a about $15 upgrade. Tower and Forge are two Boros dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped which is helpful in game play. Tower is one of the best lands to play in mulicolored Commander decks. Cut Plains for these lands.

Armory gives you more opportunity to get Skullclamp because it's is by far your best repeatable source of draw because of having many sources of 1/1 Goblins. Assemble can be another repeatable source of 1/1 tokens and if not dealt with by opponents can create a lot of value over the course of turns. Adding more mana rocks that can make white mana is helpful to be able to reduce the number of Plains in the manabase.


Cards to consider cutting:

40 lands is a lot of lands and when you have this many basic lands it's very likely you'll get consistently land flooded which is not fun. My advice is to reduce the number of Plains. If doing this then cut the casting cost cards because white is the secondary color, red is the primary color since you need lots more red for Goblins.

In my opinion Titan and Aurelia are the only worth keeping because they're six drops which makes it easier to have double white mana available when you want to cast them. Archetype of Courage is a good card, but having consistently for a three drop is not something you should have to worry about.

Herald of War and Sephara, Sky's Blade are going in. Resplendent Angel seems decent but it costs $10 and looks like a creature version of Angelic Accord . Thnx for all the suggestions Joe_Ken_!

You may also want to get Sephara, Sky's Blade from M20 since it will help protect your angels.

So with the ban for Iona I need to find a new angel for my Aurrealia the warleader angel tribal deck.

Aurelia's Angelic crusade

My first thought are for some angels that give indestructible, but I’m open to suggestions.

Sephara, Sky's Blade is one that seems very good since it will act as a mini Avacyn.

Another I had some thoughts of and already have in paper is Archangel Avacyn  Flip since the flash indestructibility and lower cmc could be good to take people by surprise since a lot of resources tend to go into board wipes.

Replace: Gray Merchant of Asphodel for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker

Herald of War for Liliana's Contract (Card Draw!)

Shivan Dragon For Sephara, Sky's Blade (Cooler creature)

More card draw and mana ramp would do this deck really well. Make the tough choice to get rid of some of the expensive creatures. You can favor creatures and cards that change the board state the turn they come in rather than later.

Boros Battleshaper for Angel of Serenity (Targeted Removal)

Disciple of Bolas for Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice (Duh)

Assemble the Legion for True Conviction

I would also try to decrease the average converted mana cost. This deck feels slow and bulky. Add in the appropriate mana ramp. Some artifacts that cost 2 or less that give you mana. Like the Talisman of Hierarchy , Wayfarer's Bauble or Talisman of Conviction .

If you rebuild it: 10 Ramp Spells 5+ Removal (This includes creatures that remove, i.e. Angel of Serenity . 10+ Draw Spells 30ish leftover for the cool stuff.

Hey ZombieCat! Might I suggest the freshly released Sephara, Sky's Blade in place of Iona instead? That's what I slotted in my own angel deck and it seems like an ideal fit for your overall theme in here.
