Creature — Soltari Soldier
Shadow (This creature can block or be blocked by only creatures with shadow.)
: The next time Soltari Guerrillas would deal combat damage to an opponent this turn, it deals that damage to target creature instead.
Soltari Guerrillas Discussion
1 month ago
I'm going to throw out Soltari Guerrillas as some seriously random, anti-illusion tech. The oracle text makes it a free, targeting, activated ability. It is traditionally combined with Horobi, Death's Wail or Cowardice to great effect. Play your cards right and it could easily be a one-sided board wipe.

I would reduce the average CMC of your deck by removing some of the big angels at the top of your curve. Also adding additional mana ramp to make sure you can play all your angels.
Deck Theme Questions: 1. Another big question is what is the theme that you're going for -- right now it is just tribal angels. I would add an additional subtheme like equipment or taxes to slow down to your opponent.
I would add more card draw and ramp for consistency, plus perhaps some equipment to buff up your angels: Add: - Vanquisher's Banner - Open the Armory - Sword of the Animist - Lightning Greaves - Swiftfoot Boots - Hedron Archive - Commander's Sphere - Mind's Eye - Emeria Shepherd - Loxodon Warhammer - Blackblade Reforged - True Conviction

R/W Soldier Creatures - Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Iroas's Champion, Hearthfire Hobgoblin Three powerful double strikers and two of which should be includes just since Iroas is your commander. Soltari Guerrillas Personal favorite of mine Lightning bolt on a body, great for removing pesky low toughness creatures with annoying abilities.
Artifacts/Enchantments - Konda's Banner, Herald's Horn, Obelisk of Urd These three are amazing with tribal decks. Sunforger, Legion's Initiative these two can give you responses Sunforger can tutor any of your instants and Legions Inititive can protect you from a board wipe unfortunately tokens will still be lost as they cease to exist when they leave battlefield.

Trespasser and Stronghold Rats leave you at something of a disadvantage, while Zealot doesn't really do a hell of a lot in comparison to other creatures in the deck -- Especially compared to Soltari Guerrillas which does HEAPS of damage under the right circumstances.
Other possible recommendations:
Whip of Erebos -- Always nice to have Lifelink (Forever, unlike Skirmisher, which in itself is great, don't get me wrong)
Phyrexian Reclamation -- A cheaper way of getting creatures back from the grave (Debtors' Knell is great, but you might be waiting a while for it...)
Archangel of Thune -- An expensive card, but potentially huge pump for your little shadows!
Harvest Season (Not yet in the database) -- Turns a full swing of attackers into massive ramp.
I would have suggested Concerted Effort but you'd have to redesign the deck slightly to get it in with a few keyword creatures, and I think that'd kinda ruin the deck.
Love Shadow -- I try and get Dauthi Embrace into decks where I need the evasion whenever I can. Keep working at it and you've got something nasty here!

As a way to send damage directly to an opponents creatures i like Soltari Guerrillas but thats not as thematic as i would like here
2 years ago
- Stonehoof Chieftain for Dolmen Gate. much cheaper and same basic affect
- Sylvan Caryatid for Shaman of Forgotten Ways. can attack and has a sweet ultimate if you can ever get it off
- some amount of signets instead of 3 cmc mana rocks. get a turn 3 commander and start the damage train early
- Dictate of the Twin Gods for Gratuitous Violence. If you can get your mana to support it, this seems like a great upgrade
- Duelist's Heritage for Silverblade Paladin. more creatures to attack with, and could be a sweet opening play. turn 3 paladin, turn 4 commander, attack for 20 turn 4? Boss status
- Necropotence seems very hard to cast, maybe Mask of Memory
- some amount of fast lands for basics. seems like you're running alot of checklands (Rootbound Crag) which i like more than the fast lands
- Quicksilver Amulet is another elvish piper that could be cool.
- I saw your forecast shadow creature and thought you might like some more, Dauthi Embrace, Soltari Champion, Soltari Guerrillas and Soltari Visionary
- I agree with @Daedalus19876 and think Strionic Resonator dosen't belong in a beatdown deck.
- I'm not sure about Crackling Doom, another kill spell would probably be better.
- Ankle Shanker
I hope some of these suggestions are helpful. I'm working on a deck I could use a couple of fresh eyes on, if you wouldn't mind checking it out I'd really appreciate it!

Blessed Reincarnation could technically be targeted hug as the odds of getting something better are high in edh.
