Vault of the Archangel Discussion

Thank you very much, this deck has been a lot of fun to work out and to play. I have played Naya most of my magic career and this is my first time exploring black and The junk color combo. I always thought if I were to switch up a color I would trade the white for black and play Jund but it just kinda happened this way and I am very happy about it.

Shambling Vent is something I have meant to put on the consideration list for some time now, but for what ever reason I keep missing it. I lost to that card in a Nahiri deck at my last PPTQ. Thank you for reminding me about that one. So far I think I like Gavony Township more than Vault of the Archangel but they are both pretty sweet when they do go off.

Is Noble Hierarch really much better than Birds of Paradise? Is it just because of her Exalted trigger? Would that require altering my land base to consider that she doesn't produce Black Mana? My buddy keeps telling me the same thing, but I feel that if I am putting that much bread into the deck it is going towards Tarmogoyf.

I am definitely going to consider adding some more disruption to the mainboard. The lifegain thing almost works, in many cases I find that I gain just enough life to outlive my opponents hand, and I just have enough left going on. I am just not sure it is consistent enough.

I would love to check out your deck and let you know what I think. Thank you greatly for your consideration and your input.

christ4like2l0ve great deck! I also built an alternate Abzan strategy and love to see you break the mold. For land I would love to see you get to 23. I would play a few different times with different Utility lands and move forward with one 3X or two 2X. Great options for you are Gavony Township, Vault of the Archangel, Ghost Quarter, and Shambling Vent.

In the MB Birds of Paradise could become Noble Hierarch, Assualt Formation could become Thoughtseize. And in the SB I prefer Thrun, the Last Troll over Sigarda.

I hope this helps a little. The good and bad of Junk is you can tweak it indefinitely and its never "right". I would love another set of eyes on my attempt at a planeswalkerless Abzan if you have time: Abzan Beatdown. Good luck at the table!

I would consider adding a Gavony Township or Vault of the Archangel.

Sprout Swarm could be super sweet as well.

i have noticed the life problem at times, most of the time im ok either i have too many blockers for them to hit me or i have 1/1 lifelinkers or even bigger from Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. but i do like the idea of the Vault of the Archangel seems good for blocking or an attack with the deaththouch. i also like the Disenchant, i was really only prepping for boggles with Blessed Alliance but for other decks Disenchant could be good just need to find a place on the sideboard. thank you.

You should add some enchantment hate, like Disenchant, and for artifacts (some more). And i would maybe add Sorin, Solemn Visitor for some extra lifelink, with Bitterblossom, Thoughtseize and lands that drain health. Maybe something like Vault of the Archangel for some midgame lifelink. Other than that, its nice to see some more B/W token decks around. Hope this helps :)

Hey Dumpstergod! I love the idea with Gavony Township and Vault of the Archangel. Both seem like fantastic options for grindy matchups and the synergy between Township and Hardened Scales is pretty awesome. It's like having a second (or possibly third) Nissa, Voice of Zendikar in the deck that's harder to remove and less awkward to get online by not requiring GG in the mana cost. I'm not sure about Vault but Township seems like a great addition.

Dromoka's Command is a card I actually used to run, but ended up axing in favor of more creature slots to fuel Collected Company. As it stands now even, the number of creatures is on the low end of what can be considered consistent for the purposes of hitting 2 off of CoCo, so it's a card I mainly use in the sideboard when I'm expecting a lot of burn or super aggressive matchups to force 2-for-1s. Its usefulness is pretty undeniable in those situations.

Thanks for the suggestions!
