Shattered Angel Discussion
1 month ago
Ripwater Yea! They really did, I was so surprised! They worked out so well, I gotta thank you again!
ManaPickler OMG I have never seen Shattered Angel before and now I definitely want to add her! I always had an issue with Blind Obedience cause I could never have enough Mana for the Extort. But I think you're right: if I cut down some of the higher mana costing cards, I could probably streamline the deck a little more. Though, recommending me High costing cards dont help XD Def gonna look into Righteous Cause : I didnt realize that its ANY creature that attacks.
And to the both of you: Honestly? With all the good stuff coming in from M20, as well as some Juicy bits from Modern Horizon's I may just end up cutting most of the extra combo pieces: I only need at least 1 or two to go with Exquisite.

I fully agree with Ripwater about Sanguine/Exquisite combos, most playgroups I'm in will kill someone just for dropping one of the pieces. And its too easy, I don't run Aetherflux Reservoir for the same reason. But if your group is doing similar things, let 'em have it!
You could can definitely streamline your turn's by replacing your 5 & 6 drops with some cheaper CMC options.
Have you considered Shattered Angel of Blind Obedience for the extort and the fact that it normally puts opponents on tilt? If your really focused on the soul sister's, I would recommend Darien, King of Kjeldor .
Hope this helps.

The easiest way to allow a community to make a set, would be to make it as a combination of two sets together. This would allow people to draw on inspiration from both sets, and implicitly present design guidelines for the cards in the set: each card must feel like it would fit on one plane or the other, or a mix of the two, but nowhere else.
Let's roll with the Steampunk-Angel idea. Here's my solution:
If we look at the flavor text on Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : "The Gitaxians whisper among themselves of other worlds. If they exist, we must bring Phyrexia's magnificence to them." And we see the Planar Bridge was invented on Kaladesh, I vote we design this set with the theme of "a Phyrexian invasion on Kaladesh". We know New Phyrexia had angels, with Shattered Angel , Chancellor of the Annex and others, all in Elesh Norn colors, so we can justify the corrupted angel theme on a steampunk world.
Doing it this way, would solve all questions about setting, mechanics and lore in a way that any player would understand without having to read an entire thread of backstory.

As a fellow Angel lover (you can see my angel tribal & taxes deck here ), I think you run many angels that are simply not good enough. Angel of Retribution, Radiant, Archangel is too fragile to mass removal, Seraph of Dawn, Seraph of the Suns, Shepherd of the Lost, Requiem Angel, Angelic Field Marshal is useless if you don't have your commander out, and if you have it you really don't need that much having viligance on all your creatures when a lot of them already have it, Exquisite Archangel (if you want this kind of effect I would prefer Resolute Archangel, that does it whenever you want), Herald of War I think is too slow, all of those I think cost too much for what they do, even Radiant, because she is too vulnerable against mass removal, although you could argue that she is good enough, I don't like her that much. I also think some of them like Silver Seraph or Shattered Angel could be removed but I'm fearing that I am going to cut too much and you will end up with less than 100 cards. Also, I'd suggest removing Iona, as hard as it is for me to say, but when my opponents stole it from me for the third time and named white I finally decided is too risky to run her in a monocolored deck.
I also think you are running some inefficient lifegain. Chaplain's Blessing is too weak, you could instead run cards like Blessed Alliance that are far more versatile, or Solemn Offering to mix targeted removal with life gain. Rest for the Weary, Sun Droplet, those ones I think are too ineficient.
Finally, some of the artifacts you run are to make your creatures able to evade more, but I don't think it is necessary when all of them already fly and are enormous, so I would cut Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm. I don't think Whispersilk Cloak is that good taking into account how many enchantments and abilities you have that target your creatures, and Sunbeam Spellbomb isn't good enough if you are not running some kind of graveyard recursion.
Finally, I would cut many of the cards you use to buff up your angels. They are already big, you don't need too many +1/+1 effects when you are always casting 5/5s, 6/6s and 7/7s. That would make Silver Seraph, Path of Bravery, Honor of the Pure, Dictate of Heliod and Light from Within cuttable.
Have you thought about adding Approach of the Second Sun? It's a nice alternate win condition that makes you gain life. I'd also think about including the OG Ajani Goldmane, it was made specifically about lifegain.

What PieGuy said, but I disagree with cutting Shattered Angel. It can easily gain a looot of life, and that's not even counting any crazy ramp decks with things like Collective Voyage or Boundless Realms, or even smaller ramp cards like Rampant Growth or Explosive Vegetation
