The plane of Innistrad has never been without horror and desolation. However for centuries the angelic hosts stood against the corruption, the demons and the terrors of the night. Lead by Avacyn, Angel of Hope an Archangel created to give balance to the plane and the hosts leaders, Bruna, Light of Alabaster Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Sigarda, Host of Herons Humanity began to win the endless war. However Innistrad was forever changed when Nahiri, the Harbinger drove Avacyn to madness and unleashed the Eldrazi Titan onto the plane to get revenge on Sorin. Avacyn, Bruna and Gisela turned against the humans in an effort to purge them of sin. Only Sigarda remained unphased and stood against her sisters. This is Sigarda's army.

Hope Against Hope is my from scratch commander deck using, Sigarda, Heron's Grace At its core, Hope Against Hope is a beatdown, semi token creature based deck. Heavy focus has been put on each creature and its ability to either delay/protect or fight off the horrors of the night. Our armies come from the remaining Heron host, the spirits of the departed who cannot be phased by Emrakul and the soldiers of the plane standing against the twisted faces of their former loved ones.

*Edit, the new printings of Avacyn (all printings of Avacyn), Gisela and Bruna are not being added to the deck to keep the flavor intact. Nothing says sleeper agent like the 'Angel of Hope' killing everything.

'Sigarda was the last uncorrupted archangel, but she would not have to fight alone.'

Nice deck! I got my Sigarda deck to a point where I could play test it yesterday. One thing I noticed is possibly switching out Sun Titan for Emeria Shepherd. The landfall ability as well as no CMC restriction seems great.

Thanks! I didn't think of this angel for some reason I guess, its actually closer to theme, and has better synergy overall. Much appreciated!
