Snow-Covered Plains Discussion

ClockworkSwordfish, The utility of Scrying Sheets seems tempting, but there is rarely any Mana left over for an effect that might add a land into my hand. Coldsteel Heart isn't worth it as it comes in tapped (not a big deal turn 2 or 3 but quite detrimental on turn 8). Also, the point of the Snow-Covered Plains is to help prevent others from benefiting from Extraplanar Lens .

Thanks you for your suggestions, though!!

You don't know how happy I am whenever I see another fan of... ELDRAZI TRIBAL!!! First thing I want to say is that Primeval Titan and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn are banned in EDH (sorry EMMY). Before I start listing upgrades/good additions to this list I will say that I'm not gonna go name any of the Moxes ( Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond , etc) as good additions because they are 100% not needed, but just good investments for the future. (Things like Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Fetchlands, and Grim Monolith go along with the Moxes.)

What I would add that I think would really benefit the deck a lot:

1) Cavern of Souls , it is a bit pricey and not needed, but trust me if you had to choose betweeen a Mana Vault + Chrome Mox or just one Cavern of Souls I would highly recommend Cavern of Souls

2) Put more 2 cmc ramp cards in (the first thing I would change on this list), Fellwar Stone , Selesnya Signet , Rampant Growth , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Farseek , Nature's Lore , Three Visits (this one's a bit pricey), Into the North (only if you switch to Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Forest , they also make your Extraplanar Lens better)

BTW, I could list a bunch of other upgrades, but these are the ones I think will be most beneficial to your deck. If you would like me to write a full list of everything I would add from most beneficial to least I will gladly do that, but let me know if you have a budget on the cards you would like me to list first. Have a nice day and long live the ELDRAZI!!!

I forgot to mention Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand , Marsh Flats & Windswept Heath can be pretty useful to include. While at first they may not seem to do much, they make an incredibly strong synergy with Crucible of Worlds as you'll always be guaranteed to hit your next land drop that way by continually being able to pull them out of your graveyard. (Until you run out of basic Snow-Covered Plains of course.) Buying fetch-lands for such a minimal improvement might not be worth it, but if you have spares they really make a good synergy!

Speaking of snow-lands, Sunstone is a really good panic-button if one of your opponent plans to deal lethal out of nowhere. Being able to deny someone a combat step on demand is pretty strong, especially if you have a Crucible of Worlds to fuel it.

Since your mono-colored Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains can't hurt anything except your wallet.

Also eventually I’m going to swap the plains for Snow-Covered Plains and throw in an Extraplanar Lens

Scrying Sheets works pretty well when paired with 20+ Snow-Covered Plains . 1 or 2 would give you some extra draw lands and ensure your draws are all gas.

Hey, lots of good cards here and this is a good start for a deck built around Angels. You say in the description "Uses few artifacts to speedily get additional angels out" consider expanding on this? It's the right strategy to use since Avacyn costs 8 mana :)

Cards to consider adding:

Do you have Scroll Rack ? I see it in the sideboard; if you have it play it main deck, card is very good at helping to draw an Angel every turn and has fantastic interaction with Herald's Horn. I see Extraplanar Lens, this card works much better with Snow-Covered Plains then normal Plains. Snow-Covered reduces the number of opponents who can benefit from Lens. If you imprint a Snow-Covered Plains instead of Plains then only opponents who play Snow-Covered Plains get the mana bonus.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Always Watching
  • Angelic Chorus
  • Angelic Exaltation
  • Brave the Sands
  • Radiant Destiny
  • True Conviction
  • Dragon Scales
  • Door of Destinies
  • Akroma's Memorial
  • Cryptic Gateway
  • Moonsilver Spear
  • Akroma's Vengeance
  • Sunblast Angel
  • Subjugator Angel
  • Serra's Guardian
  • Seraph of Dawn
  • Resolute Archangel
  • Malach of the Dawn
  • Lightkeeper of Emeria
  • Angel of Invention
  • Angel of Condemnation
  • Shattered Angel
  • Exquisite Archangel

Many of these cards I suggest to cut are anthem effects. I don't think Angels need so many of these effects since they're already powerful flying creatures; they don't benefit enough from so many anthems. Replacing anthems effects with ramp lets you actually play Angels faster which I think is more important than pumping them since you can't pump Angels if you don't have any on the battlefield. Lots of other high mana cost (CMC six plus) Angels have potential to clog your hand, not able to cast them. You already have your powerful eight mana Angel in the Command Zone because of this consider cutting a lot of other high mana cost Angels to help to reduce the avg. CMC of the deck which is currently high at 4.5.

Good luck with your deck.

If you convert all your basic lands to Snow-Covered Plains you can make use of Extraplanar Lens without helping any of your opponents most of the time. Really helps with mana production because Avacyn is a pretty slow commander. Other than that this looks really good!
