Angel's Grace , Backup Win Conditions and all things combo

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on March 13, 2018, 3:39 a.m. by enpc

As the thread name eludes to, I am considering adding Angel's Grace to my Thrasios and Tymna deck, Triton Weaver. This is primarily to do work with Ad Nauseam.

I am also looking at my backup win condition package. Currently it is using Noxious Revival and Memory's Journey to loop Reality Shift to exile each opponent's library. However I recently added Thought Scour to the deck which I can use in place of Reality Shift, as well as looping Swan Song for infinite birbs.

So the question is this: should I cut Reality Shift for Angel's Grace? Is there another card I should cut for it? Is it actually worth running?

The other thing is that I am looking for feedback about the combo package/deck in general. I know I'm missing Imperial Seal, Arid Mesa, a few of the ABURs and Timetwister.

Timetwister is currently placeholdered by Day's Undoing - we house rule undoing to be twister in comp games as none of us want to drop over a grand for a single card.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you are wanting to play HE-MAN. Gonna plug GitGudFrog's 4c Humility Control list and maybe he could answer some questions here.

I've seen HE-MAN lists which look good, however I'm aim more for a Paradox Engine storm-esque build (that was to goal at least).

There is a lot of removal in the list though, which is a bit of a habit of mine.

So I took another look at your list and I don't think Kiora's Follower is really needed in your list. Also removal is never a bad thing to have.

Kiora's Follower may not seem like it but that card is actually a powerhouse. Especially since you can Birthing Pod a one drop dork into it and then combo off next turn by playing Thrasios, poding him into Trinket Mage fetching Lion's Eye Diamond and then untap pod with follower getting Auriok Salvagers and comboing out.

Not to mention he can untap Mana Vault and gets dumb with any 2+ mana producing cards.

I don't know it still just seems too slow to me.

Bauble feels pretty silly outside of the combo. I'd rather cut that.

Reality Shift is just great by itself. It removes any creature, counters tutors, and messes up Doomsday.

Angel's Grace is worse but still worth the include over Bauble imo. Just don't cut Shift :)
