pie chart Forest and Flicker (G/W/B)

Standard* Angels Control Lifegain Ramp



The main theme of this deck is to flicker cards like Thragtusk, Fiend Hunter, Borderland Ranger , Acidic Slime, and Angel of Serenity . I'm flickering these cards with Cloudshift and Restoration Angel, while using Undying Evil and Unburial Rites as secondary methods to utilize the LTB and ETB abilities of the other cards.


Playing Fiend Hunter or Angel of Serenity , and then flickering either of them with Cloudshift to exile two (or six) of the opponent's creatures.

Blocking with a Thragtusk to kill one of their attacking creatures, and throwing an Undying Evil on my Thragtusk before it dies. When it returns, Cloudshift it, giving me a total of 10 life and two 3/3 Beast tokens, all ready to attack on my turn, and for only TWO mana!

Casting a Garruk, Primal Hunter, and then immediately using his -3 ability to draw cards equal to the greatest power among creatures I control. This usually allows me to draw 5 cards mid-game.

I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions, or even some insight on how you think this deck would fare against current archetypes at FNM's, since I haven't been to one in a long time, and I have no idea what kind of cards people are playing.

Thanks for the interest!

The first FNM went pretty well considering I only won one match. I might have been able to win two others, but I just wasn't paying attention correctly. For instance, I ended up sideboarding against myself against Zombies in my third match. I brought in my Curse of Death's Hold and Rest in Peace while leaving things like Unburial Rites and Undying Evil in my deck. Such fail...

My next match was very close, but I completely ignored my Vault of the Archangel. This would have been an easy win if I would have just swung in to gain some life to sustain myself for another turn or two. Another fail... Hopefully, next time, I won't be so careless.

Aside from all that, I've decided to change up my deck slightly. I wasn't able to utilize Duress as much as I had hoped, so I'm going to pull it out for now. However, if it seems I'm not getting much use from my Undying Evils, I'll probably bring them back for a permanent exchange.

Removed: 2x Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, 3x Duress

Added: 2x Sever the Bloodline, 2x Sigarda, Host of Herons, 1x Garruk, Primal Hunter.
