Change Thrilling Encore to Living Death. More bang for the same cost and speed. Personally I’d be greedy and use Rise of the Dark Realms instead of Angel of Glory's Rise. Also, I’d run Dictate of Erebos as redundancy and drop the Black Market.

Your deck pulls into two directions: 1) Aristocrats 2) Token Overrun

I’d advise dropping Mirror Entity and adding Bontu's Monument. The loops you have are enough to kill without dumping mana into the mirror for a big hit.

You’re short on draw. Taborax, Hope's Demise can help here while gaining a big stick.

Thank you for the rich feedback Beware!

Mortal Combat and No Rest for the Wicked do seem handy. I'll try them out.

I take your point on Sol Ring and Sol Talisman, although the former does help get Athreos online on turn 2 as well as accelerate how quickly the bigger spells are played like Phyrexian Altar, Remembrance, Angel of Glory's Rise, and anything else above 4 Mana in general. Sol Talisman I was trying on in place of Land Tax or an unconditional draw spell like Night's Whisper. It's cute in a bad way so I agree with you that it needs to go.

Black Market is OK. It's just helping me with mana at a point when I don't need it much anymore. Still, the mana package here feels raw so I'll play around with it again and see if it feels like a better functional fit as I do like how on theme it is.

Expedition Map is a personal preference. I like being able to grab Cabal Coffers or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to power up mana. I also have found being able to grab a Bojuka Bog pretty helpful against graveyard decks. And weirdly enough, snatching Vault of the Archangel has helped me several times to deter aggro with deathtouch capable Shadowborn Apostles or improve survivability with lifelink. Finally, there are games where lack of lands can be an issue and it gives me an out to those corner cases to stay on curve or fix mana colors.

I have never had a problem with Dark Confidant. Nearly 83 cards in the deck are 2 mana value or less so the damage is often negligible especially when our life total matters as little as it does in a combo build. In a pinch, I can sac it to Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Diabolic Intent, Phyrexian Altar, or Skullclamp when draw is no longer necessary. I'm comfortable with this risk profile particularly with fair access to lifegain as from Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Vault of the Archangel.

I'm going to take your advice on a few of these suggestions and I really appreciate the years of experience behind your feedback. Thank you!

I'm not sure how exactly Quin plays yet, but I'm trying to come up with something with him too so I'll throw some cards I thought were interesting at you. Sentinel's Eyes seems decent, with Quin out it gives you two 3/2s for , which is pretty good. Battle Screech is just a generally strong tokens card so it fits with the token support, but also gives you a 3/2 (for free!). Same with Increasing Devotion , although thats definitely a lower power level just because of the mana cost. Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants are both also pretty strong cards that also will just throw in a 3/2 with Quin.

You have quite a few humans, so maybe throw in Bruna, the Fading Light  Flip, and if you want to meld, Gisela, the Broken Blade ? Bruna's solid on her own, but I might just be biased because I love meld. Angel of Glory's Rise too, depending on how many humans you end up with. You could also play things like Resurrection and Breath of Life , or even Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift . Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sac outlet, which you should probably have at least one more of. Ashnod's Altar is the go too, but I think its pretty expensive nowadays, so maybe Blasting Station , Dark-Dweller Oracle , or Grafted Exoskeleton

A bunch of the phoenixes seem decent, since they always return. I think the best ones would be Flamewake Phoenix , Rekindling Phoenix , and Skyfire Phoenix . Flamewake seems great since with Quin your spirits activate ferocious, the others I'd be more skeptical about.

Well I hope that's at least somewhat helpful lol

Angelic Overseer, Herald of War (which plays well with your Cathar's Crusade, your Gavony Township and your Mikaeus) and Angel of Glory's Rise would be 3 non-humans I'd run in this deck for obvious reasons. On top of that I'd remove Benalish Marshal to add, if you really want to keep the anthem flavor, Knight of New Alara. Dire Tactics would also fit this deck quite well.

Why not some mana rocks?

Without Kamahl's Druidic Vow and Angel of Glory's Rise, you could have Jegantha be the deck's companion.

Merely a note.

Thanks for the comment Elasar99, I have not obtained Orah, Skyclave Hierophant or any of the new clerics as of yet. With the new additions to cleric tribal I am having to rethink the deck quite a bit as I pushed human subtribe to take advantage of Angel of Glory's Rise. With the new additions the deck might morph quite a lot soon.

Very nice alternative. I must say I think your list of searchable demons is a little thin and not that much utility to get. It appears you mostly have demons that grant card draw in some fashion.

I would probably put in something like Archfiend of Depravity or Pestilence Demon for swarm control. And I do find Archfiend of Despair a very neat tech choice to wallop an opponent out who has taken a bit too much damage. Or Sower of Discord to either dissuade an opponent from attacking into you or to utilize damage against one player to swing against another.

While Reaper from the Abyss is a very nice card that keeps on giving, I find Overseer of the Damned to be a good alternative, as the effect happens immediately and can better be utilized to save your skin or deal with a problematic creature from an opponent.

Also I'm surprised to not see Secret Salvage nor Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker in your list.


All this being said I don't think I'll ever drop the Orzhov variants of Shadowborn Apostle decks.

The amount of value you can get with Black-White is well worth it in my eyes.

Cards like Aven Shrine or Remembrance are easily paying themselves back in short time.

Include cards like Immortal Servitude and Rally the Ancestors and if you're a bit more casual; Angel of Glory's Rise. Even if you only have a small slew of Apostles, you can use them again and again for quite cheap.

Of course there's the palette of removal that is accessible with white; Vindicate, Utter End, Anguished Unmaking. Merciless Eviction is also a favorite along with Austere Command.

And while we're at it, throw in a Smothering Tithe.
