Avacyn the Worldslayer: Say hello to my Boomstick!

Commander / EDH Angels Control Mono-White Tribal



Angels + More Angels + your face = Game Over

Also, Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Worldslayer is a dream every child should hope to achieve (I have done it and it was awesome as heck).

Looking to foil this one out over time as it shouldn't be too expensive besides Linvala.

Catastrophe is a mix of Wrath of God and Armageddon, maybe that is something you want despite the slightly higher cmc. If you are behind on board, get rid of the creatures, but if you are ahead, freeze the board by destroying lands instead.
Mistveil Plains offers some nice utility and has the advantage of counting as a Plains. If you are running Evolving Wilds (i assume it's to trigger landfall?), you might also want Terramorphic Expanse.
Do you actually need the colored mana from Gilded Lotus? If colorless would also do the job, you could just run Thran Dynamo instead. Dropping it turn 4 allows for a turn 5 Avacyn. Of course it would also be an option to run both Lotus and Dynamo.

I am familiar with Catastrophe but I don't like the art and it doesn't exist in modern border or foil and I'm working on foiling out this deck. Mistveil Plains is definitely a great card but there's no way to tutor in this deck and I have no desire to add any so I would essentially be losing that card to the bottom of the deck. In the graveyard I have ready access to it with any of the reanimation effects in the deck. You can safely assume that I'm aware of Terramorphic Expance if I'm building a deck like this; I simply chose not to put it in. But yes, shuffling is important for Scroll Rack, and landfall is important to two cards in the deck. I don't think there's any argument for taking Gilded Lotus out of a mono-white deck. A significant number of the angels have in their mana cost and it's just a huge boost to the deck. There aren't many games that are decided by getting an 8/8 indestructible flyer out on turn 4 or 5. However, I am trying to fit more mana rocks into the deck for more ramp and also card draw abuse with Emeria Shepherd + Hedron Archive or Dreamstone Hedron.

I am aware that you need a lot of white mana, but you have plenty of lands that generate it, so i think my suggestion of using Thran Dynamo still seems reasonable to me. There are a lot of ways to make good use of colorless mana in this deck. Gilded Lotus certainly isn't a bad card by any means, i am just suggesting you can have the same effect and save a point of mana. And while casting Avacyn a turn earlier isn't instantly game winning, you can't deny that's a solid advantage of playing the Dynamo.
By the way, Pearl Medallion could also be a great accelerator for a mono white deck. I run the black equivalent in my Chainer deck and i've been impressed by the effect. Have you considered it?

yeah pearl medallion is a really solid card and one of the main things i want to squeeze into the deck actually. I totally understand what you're saying about Dynamo, but I just like having access to the colored mana and don't care as much about the turn earlier thing from dynamo. i'm not a very aggressive player :)
