Tenshi41 Deckling

Tenshi41 says... #1

Hi I’m Tenshi,

I recently started to play magic (May 4th 2018), I started playing Draft, Sealed Draft and moved into Standard. I tried to make my own homebrewed Standard deck but got stomped at my local LGS (Not a fan of net decking). After being very frustrated with Magic a friend told me about Commander Format and I started loving it right away. I believe it has helped my grow my skills in Magic, now I feel my homebrew Commander and Standard are a slightly more playable. I hope to hone my skills and learn from other more experienced players.

Deck Changes

  • Entreat the Angels: Allows the Deck to go wide, in case of sacrifice or other removal. Very threating, synergizes well with my top card manipulation.

  • Divine Reckoning: Cheaper and allows me to keep one key piece.
  • Skullclamp: Deck dose not rely on toughness, Power is more important for my commander. Also has great draw card potential and is repeatable.
  • Snow-Covered Plains: Swapping out for more basic to make Extraplanar Lens more powerful.
  • Pristine Angel: Very hard to remove, can easily Voltron it and not worry about removal.

    I see what you’re saying about Vanquisher's Banner and Sram, Senior Edificer, but I think both almost work. Boros Signet seems like it should fit, I was also considering running the new Boros Locket which can also be sacrificed for draw cards if I ever need it.

    I’m really thinking of cutting Starstorm but my deck does lack in board wipes. Even though Extraplanar Lens dose seem slow. I normally play it later game when I have 5-6 mana play for 3 and generate 3 mana, so essentially its free late game. If I cast it early game I have ton of rock that can easily cast it without tapping land. Rocks: Sol Ring, Mana Vault and Mana Crypt. I might remove some special land to add more plains to make Extraplanar Lens more powerful.

    Deck Change

    Remove:

    • Twilight Shepherd: Back to hand is not that good, does not have flash so can't cast it after a board wipe. When it’s out people know it’s not a true board wipe so they might deal with it first.

    Add:

    Thanks for all the help. @Vargavaka, @KarmaKimeleon.

    I really like Linvala, Keeper of Silence now that I’m looking at it; I have played against several decks that have tons of activable ability’s. Also lower CMC is nice. Now just trying to figure out what to cut, any opinion?

    Response to Vargavaka comment.

    I had Outpost Siege as well as Reforge the Soul in this deck before, but it seemed like they were never useful when I had them. When I needed them I never got them. What’s your opinion on Browbeat? Some of my friends swear by it and say they always get the card draw, but when I look what other people’s opinion it’s normally negative towards Browbeat. It also synergizes very well with my commander. Any other Draw cards you would recommend and what do you think I should cut?

    Cards Considering Cutting from Deck:

    • Twilight Shepherd: Back to hand is not that good, does not have flash so can't cast it after a board wipe. When it’s out people know it’s not a true board wipe so they might deal with it first.
    • Starstorm: Inefficient, but nice because I can control what gets wiped, but low on Board wipes.
    • Maze of Ith: Speeding up the deck would be better the stalling for more turns.
    • Ghostly Prison: Speeding up the deck would be better the stalling for more turns.

    It ramps like crazy almost have no problem with the CMC. I am having trouble with control decks; they are able to destroy my one or two big creatures leaving me with little cards in hand and a bunch of useless equipment. I’m thinking about upping the number of draw cards.
    I do have several things to protect me against wrath effects like Teferi's Protection, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, and Wild Ricochet If the spell is targeted. I also can tutor for Teferi and Wild Ricochet with Sunforger. I have more trouble with repeated single target removal then I do wrath effects, but Selfless Spirit dose sound very good option. I can also reoccur its effect with Sun Titan.
    Remove:

    • Treasure Nabber: Likely to get removed if non green, little effect on green players.
    • Archangel of Thune: Not going wide, most of the time I have few creatures on battlefield making the effect very weak.
    • Angelic Skirmisher: Most other angel have one or more of the effects granted, making it less powerful.
    • Blade of Selves: Not enough ETB effects or synergy. CMC high to equip.

    Adding Cards:

    • Combustible Gearhulk: More card draw, with high CMC can do massive damage with commander out. Synergizes well with commander and top card manipulation.
    • Etali, Primal Storm: Cheating cards in to play. Synergizes well with high CMC deck and top card manipulation.
    • Druidic Satchel: Good Ramp and Blockers. Synergizes well with top card manipulation.
    • Selfless Spirit: Good protect from board wipes, and repeatable with Sun Titan.
