dlamars on Take me to Church

KeelHaul10 Hey thanks for the suggestion, I actually chose to include Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant / Rune-Tail's Essence over Mark of Asylum/Light of Sanction purely because he is tutorable by both Thalia's Lancers and Recruiter of the Guard. Otherwise I'd have to choose it as I searched with Enlightened Tutor which is tough vs. Sneak Attack.

The name of the deck is just a play on the name Archangel Avacyn  Flip, it's not super clever but it is the first tHong I thought of. A - rch - angel, A - va - cyn. Bit of a stretch but it works. Thanks again for commenting.

Hi, so I'm currently working on a avacyn list myself but I plan on going with more enchantment control. I was wondering if you tried out War's Toll? Seems like it'd be great here.

Also I plan to rely on Sneak Attack heavily, abusing Karmic Guide, Reveillark etc did you consider going that route?

Drana, Liberator of Malakir works nicely with Marchesa's second ability. You can also consider Yahenni, Undying Partisan as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is extremely useful, so you can include him if you're willing to break the bank a little.

Dictate of Erebos is an instant-speed version of Grave Pact, so when someone blocks your guy with a bigger creature, just flash in Dictate for annoyance.

River Kelpie, Sage of Fables, Disciple of Bolas, and Grim Haruspex give nice card advantage. These are also somewhat synergistic with Chasm Skulker.

You can also try out Olivia, Mobilized for War (and/or Olivia Voldaren) and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born for some synergy with Marchesa.

Oona's Blackguard and Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch work as well.

For some more ETB damage, you can put in Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and maybe Sneak Attack.

Spirits on the vast whoopass

Nice creature centric build, must be fun to play.

I would get a Command Tower in here.

You don't quite have enough spells targeting creatures to utilize Agent of the Fates, I would replace her with a Demonic Tutor so you can pull a REALLY fun Dragon to your hand, or the Coat of Arms.

Serra Avenger is a little weak for a turn 4 drop, and a wasted drop off a Kaalia of the Vast trigger. Angel of Despair, Lord of the Void, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Reya Dawnbringer, Hellkite Tyrant, all feel like better drops.

You have a few ways to cheat in the creatures, could ramp a bit more with Orzhov Signet or Boros Signet, or some other tricks like a Sneak Attack, Whip of Erebos and a Sundial of the Infinite to allow you to keep the creatures long term. With so many creatures would be pretty effective.

While you do have a lot of ramp, 15 mana is still alot to cast ol' emmy. Eldrazi Temple and Eye of Ugin can help with that. Also Ancient Stirrings seems great here as it can grab land, sol ring, or a big fatty. If you were willing to splash red Through the Breach or Sneak Attack is another option to victory. Sure you might not get the cast trigger but if you make them take 15 damage in the air and sac 6 permanents they are gonna have a hard time coming back.

So I ended up playing Sneak and Show, and split for 1st place with the only other undefeated player from the 8 that showed up to the event! It was just a small FNM sort of thing, but the competition was tough. I won round 1 against a 4-color deathblade variant due to him getting mana screwed both games (I guess even with dual lands 4 colors is tough?). Round 2 I beat ANT thanks to my 1 MD Flusterstorm and Leyline of Sanctity out of the SB. Round 3 was against UW stoneblade which would have been a win for him if we didn't split, but also would have been a win for me if I had realized a certain interaction in game 2 after winning game 1. I had 6 mana available to me, a Wipe Away in hand and a Sneak Attack on the field against his Containment Priest and 4 open mana. I started by bouncing his priest, but then realized he could flash it back in (forgot about the flash). Out of frustration I just passed the turn instead of realizing that I could activate Sneak Attack a 2nd time in response to him flashing back in his Priest to get my Emrakul into play (he had no other relevant interaction in hand). So in a way, I would have won that match as well. I really just need more practice I guess.

Thanks for the help in deck selection!

I also replaced Blightning with Sol Ring for some acceleration, it just seemed the right thing to do. I love Blightning, but I think it's just too weak overall for Commander. I will say that I'm strongly considering Palace Siege because the Khans effect at upkeep works beautifully with Sneak Attack to be able to play and replay things. Not sure what to cut for it, but in the games I played today I wish I had a little more reanimation.

I'll end up using Blood Moons just b/c I already own those most likely. If I can drop them turn 1 or 2 against Eldrazi I think it will buy me enough time even if they get a chalice on 1 down. I'm wondering if a SB Smash to Smithereens would be good enough in this meta to kill a chalice or a Pithing Needle naming Sneak Attack?
