Hey, Pikobyte you gave me a comment on one of my decks before giving me some excellent help. I'm wondering if you can give me some advice on my most recent deck "Sephara's angels". Thank you!

You got a lot of room for improvement here. Polyraptor is dangerous and might lose you the game btw

You can only ramp with mana rocks or mana doublers like Extraplanar Lens. But there should be enough rocks to do that. Land Tax also ensures you a land drop each turn.

Why do you only play 2 wheels? Also funny that you like puzzlebox that much, I ended up cutting it because it was a dead card in my deck 99% of the time but I can see it do something here

I get you on the creature point, but I made this swap by myself recently and the ability to destroy something instant speed to stop a combo is really worth it imho. Since instant speed stuff if the only thing Muldrotha isn’t really good at, recurrable instant speed removals like seal of doom or caustic caterpillar are really great here

I would swap shriekmaw for Seal of Doom. It hits artifact creatures too and can be used at instant speed. Imho that makes up for the 1 more cmc. But pretty nice budget list

What does rielle do here? You got 3 discard wheels, that’s it. Your other wheels shuffle your hand back

32 lands seems too low here. I play 33 with plenty of fast mana and lower avg cmc. You prob should go up to 35-36. Otherwise it looks nice for that budget

You don’t have to go all in for sure, but I can highly recommend cards like Battle Hymn or Xenagos, the Reveler. Add in a few tutors to find phyrexian altar and the deck should play much smoother and better. My list looked pretty similar to yours at the beginning, but cards like ogre battledriver turned out to be dead cards often since it only affects tokens that come into play after it. Mass Hysteria or Fervor affect even the creatures that came into play before. You sacrifice some potential power there for less situational card choices. You have to see what works best for you

Pretty good list to start but a few questionable cardchoices and it could be faster and more consistent.

Heya CrouchingCrab, I’m not sure what you’re talking about. This list isn’t my list, if you tested this one you didn’t test mine. If you tested mine it’s a bit weird to post that here. My deck is a little more explosive and faster, but overall pretty similar. If you mean my deck we can move this conversation over there ^^

Yeah, it tends to create ridiculous turns @TriusMalarky

@TriusMalarky:

Both bident and puzzlebox can be good in Xyris, but not in my list however. I played both in early lists and cutted them because they don’t do anything for me. My deck aims for the win the turn after Xyris hits the field (and usually does). I storm off by creating tons of tokens and mana and either win before combat or with combat. Atacking for drawing cards with bident prevents me from swinging for lethal dmg with shared animosity or beastmaster ascension. And if I got them already I don’t need to draw any cards because the game is over already. Puzzlebox doesn’t do anything because there won’t be any triggers from my puzzlebox if the game ends and my opponents don’t get a turn anymore. So the only situation where puzzlebox does anything is if you draw and play it before Xyris hits the field. However even if I did draw it before I didn’t play it because I used those turns to tutor combo-pieces and set up for the win the turn after Xyris.

Both cards are undeniably good in slower decks but don’t work for me with this specific playstyle.

Heya TriusMalarky, I have tested effects like bident of thassa before and they didn’t work too well.

Distant Melody however is a card I never thought of. It may be a nice replacement for wheel and deal but I have to test that. It seems really solid in a 1v1 scenario but might kill me in a 4 player game. Having more snakes than cards in my library isn’t uncommon. But I’ll give it a test and see how it performs, looks promising.

You could add 4 different infinite combos here that win you the game on the spot by abusing atlas ability. All you need is either Purphoros, God of the Forge or Burning Sun's Avatar in the deck, an eldrazi Titan to reshuffle your grave and these combos.

  • Thornbite Staff + Ashnod's Altar lets you produce infinite eggs and put all your creatures on the table. Cycling an eldrazi titan over and over kills with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle through your deck until you find the desired creature or killed everyone with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Mirror Entity also kills the table with purphoros triggers when you activate entity for 0 just often enough by holding priority.

  • Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.
