Sky Terror Discussion
4 days ago
Other things removed:,Browbeat, Risk Factor, not the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Combo as it locks down nearly all staples of cEDH for being "CMC3 Danger Zone". Same for Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel as my stuff that wrecks fields has immunity towards such cards' Color Identity. Same applies for Odric, Lunarch Marshal even though Sky Terror & Swiftblade Vindicator are removed. Possibly adding them back... Still trying on Damage Doubling as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is, basically this.
Question: Are the following cards good?
Planar Bridge (Hefty cost to search for Permanents, but can put them in play right away. Plus, I already have infinite mana combos to boot.)
Mangara's Tome (Not sure if drawing a card at the start of a turn is a replacement effect, but if not, this can give you all 5 cards easy. I don't think this gets sacced after that, so flickering this again would mean potentially, I can play my deck.)
Citanul Flute (Why I have a lot of fat in the first place. I can net both parts of the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares meld, & play them both on the same turn. (Gisela, the Broken Blade is CMC4, & Bruna, the Fading Light is CMC7...) Then hell will be given.)
Your thoughts on these? I'll continue cutting from here. Just got to 100% Competitive though; even though it seems like a hopeless lie...

Tormenting Voice looks fantastic for fixing some of the mana flood issues I'm having with the deck but Aurelia is an absolute game winner. Even the turn she comes out her combat ability buffs the crap out of any creature I run, especially Sky Terror and Swiftblade Vindicator so i'd be loathe to cut her.
However that being said those are going straight in the side board and I'll have to shuffle some things around to make room for them.

Dat Pokemon reference though ( ._.)
Xena, Nyx-Born Myth
Legendary Planeswalker - Xena (She's a Unicorn-person thing)
+1 Create a 2/2 white Unicorn enchantment creature token with hexproof.
-3 You may put a nonland permanent an opponent controls third from the top of their library. If you don't, Xena, Nyx-Born Myth deals 4 damage to any target.
-8 You get an emblem with "Creatures you control get +1/+1 for each enchantment you control. Creatures you control gain the keyword abilities of other creatures you control."
So by the end of it, creatures you control would ideally have +4/+4 and Hexproof minimum, which isn't so bad. You can easily get them all to get flying / indestructible / first strike / trample if you build right with the colors at hand. Hell, Sky Terror alone makes them all nearly untouchable in combat and that's not including their Hexproof from the Unicorn tokens.
But I feel like I didn't do a Unicorn Lord justice so I'm reissuing it.
Make a Unicorn Lord.

Yeah, I think your curve is way too high for creatures. Maybe make room for Sky Terror and Boros Challenger. I appreciate that you want to make an angels deck, but the converted mana costs are way too high. You need to get in some additional cards. Dauntless Bodyguard and Skymarcher Aspirant are good 1-drop creatures that could add early board state, and Dauntless Bodyguard can help protect an angel a bit later in the game.
Looks like a fun deck to play, but it looks slow. I think trimming angels down to make room for some more aggressive creatures would be good.
Cool concept, though! +1 from me!

Sky Terror is an overlooked Boros card that woudl slot nicely into this deck. A 2/2 flier with menace for only 2 mana is efficient!

Thanks for leaving the comment GeneralWeenie. I like all your suggestions and since publishing this prototype last week ive been play testing some new concepts for this deck.
First off Ill start by saying that i haven't 100% playtested this list because ive been playing on MTG arena. I noticed this deck has 3 main problems
Lack of ways to escalate creatures with the mentor ability all my mentors are 2/3 strength thats in the right situation for example Gerrards enchant and aurelia pumping so i fixed this by adding 2x Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants to make pumping more consistent
Card draw im working on this but im thinking if Risk Factor for late game steam
Token based strategies im thinking of adding a few copies of Deafening Clarion

I took it to my LGS tonight and found some folks playtesting standard decks, so I jumped in with them and gave this deck a whirl. I was only able to play it against one dude who was running an Izzet burn/control deck. I was pretty sure that it would be a really bad matchup for this deck that is so reliant on critters being on the field and spells resolving, but it ended up doing very well. We played three matches and I won two of them. The first game I won I hit the Truefire Captain and Star of Extinction combo. He really did not like that one bit. The second time I won was with infinite tokens infinitely large with a Forerunner of the Empire, Raptor Hatchling Bellowing Aegisaur and Chance for Glory. He didn't like that either. The cool thing was that once he saw the combo with Truefire Captain and Star of Extinction he was gunning hard for the Captain so I kept playing them to soak up his removal while I was able to resolve and keep everything else I needed to hit the second combo that won me the second game.
I'm feeling pretty good about it. There are enough cards in the deck that make my things indestructible (Make a Stand, Sheltering Light) that I was able to keep up with his burn spells, or at least make him use two or three spells to get rid of my things.
It's working! I'll keep playtesting, but I guess the next big step is to take to FNM and see how it do.
Thanks everyone for the support and feedback. Thanks BaneOfLordran for the heads up about Star of Extinction and thanks Apex_killjoy02 for the recommendation about Treasure Map Flip. You were right. That card is so good at digging for the good stuff. Also I get to use my shiny Dino/Treasure token that was the FNM promo during the Ixalan and Rivals blocks of standard, which felt nice haha.

Love this deck!
Sky Terror is a pretty fun early Boros creature with double evasion. It's a very good target for Mentor triggers. I'm not sure how much better it is than any of your other two drops, but thought it might at least be worth a look.
Nice write-up, too. Great work!
