DespairFaction on Aurelia RW Angel Reanimator

2 months ago

I have 2 Aurelia decks also. This one and I switch between equipments voltron, and the all creature build ...so really i just need to build a 3rd one but some people may think thats excessive. This one is great for games that go a little longer, would avoid it for faster metas though.

Gisela, the Broken Blade was in here for a while, but im still tweaking the list a bit. Id like to get the angel count back up a little bit, it seems to have dropped off for more removal and ramp. The truth is theres just so many angels that I want to run its tough to get them all in. In a perfect world there would be room to add Gisela, the Broken Blade, Firemane Avenger, Seraph of the Sword, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Angel of Finality, and Angel of the Dire Hour. I have been giving some thought to Brisela though, would love to get that going. Ive got 3 or 4 cards I want to cut, so we'll see what kinds of things I can get into those slots. Another thing to think about also, is focusing on life gain with things like Dawn of Hope, Angelic Accord etc. That would definitely be a reason to use Gisela.

RoseGhoul on Angels Revised

@lagotripha Thanks so much for the advice! I really appreciate the comment. Porphyry Nodes seems like a card I might look into, haven't seen it around before so I'll consider it. Usually I don't have too much of an issue with creature damage as long as I have Seraph of the Sword out, but who knows what hand/situation I'll be in. I've only played the deck against aggro so far in cardboard, and based on what I've seen Ghostly Prison would be great to stop/make it harder to play those Bolts. I've won against a few aggro but that was mostly thanks to their bad luck. Honor does seem like something I could easily replace, Lyra could be that buff asset for bulking up. I've been thinking about replacing Moonsilver Spear as well, as cool as it is with the theme of the deck it is a really mana-hungry card from playing.

Ahhh great to see a big army of angels, so +1 just for that!

That said, I think you should lower your average CMC a bit, since twelve 7+ drops can be problematic even in casual games (and almost half of your deck costs 5 or more to play anyway). As much as I love all those huge-ass angels, maybe you could replace some of them with cheap but powerful 4-5 drops like Battlegrace Angel (lifelink), Angel of Jubilation (lord + anti-black) or Seraph of the Sword, or if you have some more money available, then you have many more to choose from like Archangel of Tithes (combat control), Shalai, Voice of Plenty (hexproof for everyone), Restoration Angel (for re-triggering enter the battlefield effects, including Seraph Sanctuary), or the golden trio of lifelink angels: Baneslayer Angel, Archangel of Thune and Gisela, the Broken Blade.

As more concrete suggestions, I think Seraph of the Sword is better than both Serra Avenger (since you can't play her until turn 4 anyway) and Guardian of the Gateless. Also I would swap Angelic Arbiter for Archangel of Tithes or Battlegrace Angel, and take out Reya Dawnbringer and Angel of the Dire Hour for some of the others I mentioned.

Regarding other spells, you might like Journey to Nowhere instead of Pacifism, or maybe Oblivion Ring/Banishing Light so it's not only for creatures.

Also, your angels won't die that often, so I would cut a couple of Defy Death for something with more utility like Survival Cache, that gives you lifegain + card drawing.

And lastly, if you take out most of your 6+ angels, you won't need Quicksilver Amulet so you could use faster ramp like Pearl Medallion or Oketra's Monument.

And that's all I can think of right now. I'll leave you the links to my angel decks in case you want to check them :) Mono-white Angels, Angels are coming, Angels and the townsfolk

soulwarden11 on Lyra enchantress?

7 months ago

This ended up being really, really long...so if it's TL;DR or you feel too critical, feel free to delete it (I wouldn't even complain at this point). Hard to really see this as an "Enchantress" deck while only being able to use Mesa Enchantress and NOT including a Serra's Sanctum to boot. Much more simply an Enchantment heavy Angel deck, which I definitely approve of since I love both Enchantments and Angels, but the title is misleading.

Enchantress is a deck centered around the Enchantress triggers of Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Eidolon of Blossoms; and if you're adding a color, you add White so you can use Mesa Enchantress and Femeref Enchantress. Without this core, it's not Enchantress.

As for the rest of the deck, it looks like it should be able to hold its own, but would probably improve with some cheaper Angels or more ramp. I used to run Voltron Akroma, Angel of Wrath and had to use tons of mana rocks just to make it playable. Akroma also cost 5WWW to get the FIRST time soooo....yeah...

Angels:Serra Avenger, Angelic Page, Emancipation Angel, Seraph of the Sword, Sustainer of the Realm, Angel of Condemnation, Seraph of Dawn, Blinding Angel, Herald of the Host, Angel of Sanctions, Angelic Arbiter, Angel of Serenity, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Resolute Archangel, Archangel of Thune, Baneslayer Angel, Serra Ascendant, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Iona, Shield of Emeria.

Enchantments:Serra's Blessing, Brave the Sands, True Conviction, Righteous Cause, Aura of Silence, Blind Obedience, Endless Horizons, Spirit Loop, Karmic Justice, Nevermore, Seal of Cleansing, Sphere of Safety, Spiritual Focus, Starfield of Nyx, Worship, Moat, Test of Endurance

Rocks/Ramp:Land Tax is pricey, but the best mono white land grabber in the game.Gilded Lotus, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Manalith, Fellwar Stone, Spectral Searchlight, Darksteel Ingot, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Pristine Talisman, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Explorer's Scope, Thunder Totem, Marble Diamond.

Lands:Seraph Sanctuary, Reliquary Tower, Serra's Sanctum, Command Beacon, Path of Ancestry, Cavern of Souls

Other:Door of Destinies, Herald's Horn, Howling Mine, Demystify, Disenchant, Fragmentize, Forsake the Worldly, Fumigate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Approach of the Second Sun, Faith Healer, Grand Abolisher, Open the Vaults, Replenish, Second Sunrise, Oketra's Monument

A number of these are pretty pricey (and definitely out of my price range) but as someone who plays White in every format he plays, a Tribal player and an Enchantress player, I can go on and on and on about these kinds of decks...This deck happens to have a White-centric tribe and is Enchantment based. XD My apologies.

This deck would greatly benefit from more copies of the same creature. A decent portion of your commons are pretty hard to play. 3 examples would be Wojek Halberdiers (pretty bad unless you have 2 other creatures), Voice of the Provinces (6 mana for a 3/3 flier and 1/1, this could be a Seraph of the Sword for 4 mana and have more value) and Gavony Ironwright (has little value unless your life total is 5 or less). I would try and get more copies of your solid creatures. If you are trying to keep a somewhat low budget, you can search for rares and mythics that are less than $1 or so and pick some that fit well. Seraph of the Sword is a good creature, and while a high cost Assembled Alphas at least has a good combat ability. It would help people on here if we knew if you were trying to play a competitive modern deck, or if you play more casual kitchen table magic. While you are looking for upgrades try and avoid conditional cards like Massive Raid it is removal, but if you have no creatures it is a dead card. One last thing, your deck needs to be 60 cards, anything more and you are just decreasing your chances of drawing something useful, and try not to go above 24 land unless you are running a control deck, which this is not.

Seraph of the Sword is great. For card draw Bygone Bishop would probably be ok too.

first off, this deck is not standard legal, you would be best off putting it under casual because sol ring is banned in almost all formats. second, you have a very high mana cost deck and you don't have to much to play on turn 2 or 3 that will make an impact since you seem so set on protection your angels i would recommend Selfless Spirit this cards is a great early play and will do well protection your angels. another cool angel is Seraph of the Sword it pretty much just cant die in combat. other cards you may like are Gods Willing and Archangel Avacyn  Flip both protect your creatures.
