Vault of the Archangel Discussion

So, your commander benefits greatly from your creatures having vigilance. That way you can attack and use her destroy ability the same turn. Always Watching , Angelic Field Marshal, Brave the Sands, Concerted Effort, Heliod, God of the Sun, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, and Radiant Destiny are all decent options for that. Paradox Engine can make your commander able to smite creature after creature in one turn. Another thing that could be nice is giving deathtouch with all of the first strike and double stike inherent in knights. Archetype of Finality, Odric, Lunarch Marshal (with a deathtoucher) are basically the only ways to do that other than the Vault of the Archangel which you already have. I hope some of these help!

I found that im not surviving during long games cause my life keeps going down.

so im getting Dragonlord Dromoka , Whip of Erebos and Vault of the Archangel which should do the trick.

also thinking about adding Second Sunrise for the boardwipes.

I'm just wondering what how much colorless land is too much colorless land because I want to add Vault of the Archangel or Westvale Abbey  Flip at some point. Also, should I add more cycling lands or do I have enough tapped land as is?

yeah should be fine to run in the side. also i would consider running Shambling Vent for control match ups or gaining life back against burn. I'd like to recommend a 1 of Vault of the Archangel but i think that would be too cheeky

Hi, thanks for your tips. Exsanguinate is much better than Torment of Hailfire.

Have you tried Martial Coup instead of Secure the Wastes? Do you think that being a instant is better than an occasional board wipe?

Vault of the Archangel is really good in some matchups.

I am trying to get Necropotence and Ad Nauseam following your ideas.

the idea of Extinguish All Hope its great but always end being a card that does nothing at all in my hand and its so expensive to cast.

Have you considered Merciless Eviction? i dont run more than 2 wraths in my deck (one is Oblivion Stone and i can recur thanks to the Sun's Titan) and Vault of the Archangel + Lots of tokens usually cleans the board, but if needed merciless is one of the best answer to creatures that can come back from the grave.

think Exsanguinate its better than Torment of Hailfire both of them are great finishers but exsanguinate can save your life. and if you gonna get Cabal Coffers better using Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

In my playgroup we try to play with 1 o no tutors at all, that's why i only run one.

Another card draw option is Geth's Grimoire and you can add Geier Reach Sanitarium for force the players to discard and dig for cards

Thanks tarotplz!

Timely Reinforcements just has been wonders for me because of all the aggro decks such as humans running around. Really lets me rebound quickly, especially if I was able to play a Intangible Virtue turn two.

Thinking about cutting 1 Vault of the Archangel for another Ghost Quarter or Shambling Vent cause I do agree. I think its more of me wanting to force it in, and that's why I keep the 2.

The reason I don't run Spectral Procession is for two reasons:

1.) The mana fixing. This deck runs a lot of black costing spells. Nothing worse then having it cost 4 or at the very worst 5 mana due to colorless mana draws.

2.) Start Has replaced it for the main part, for me at least. It also gives the option to provide that instant speed blockers, and additional removal if needed.

I like your list. Timely Reinforcements in the main is something that I found never worked out quite well enough.

2 Vault of the Archangel seems excessive, we don't really use it all that often.

It's probably still correct to run at least some ammount of Spectral Procession. i know it taxes the mana base pretty hard with Lili and all, but the card is really powerful.
