It's beautiful. I love mono-white, I love Avacyn, I love angels. Steller!

If possible, I'd run Cavern of Souls, Angelic Arbiter, Archangel of Tithes and Archangel of Thune, but that's just me (especially the last two).

Hey, nice to see someone else is trying to make Avacyn competitive! Here are some thoughts from my own Avacyn deck, I’m still in the process of building it as well. :)


Card Quality:

Protecting Avacyn:

  • Avacyn is a huge threat and most people will definitely try to stop you from using her by: countering her summoning, exiling her, -x/-x, sacrifice, copying or stealing her.

  • Teferi's Protection is complete board protection. Probably the best defense white has.

  • Effects like Otherworldly Journey or Long Road Home allow you to save her from exile board wipes, Cyclonic Rift and the like.

  • Arcane Lighthouse is useful in circumstances that someone copies or steals your Avacyn.

  • Whispersilk Cloak can also combo well with Worldslayer (just be sure to equip Worldslayer first).

Spot Removal:

  • Oblation (shuffles back into deck)

  • Condemn (puts attacking creature at the bottom of its owner’s library)

Counter Spells: (Not that there are many in white).


Potential Planeswalkers:

Good Luck! I hope the deck building goes well! :)

Omniscience_is_life thanks for your comment :) I agree it's a very nice card! Have you considered Scroll Rack? It's even better in my opinion!

KotetsuRedwood thanks for your suggestions! Marisi, Breaker of the Coil was certainly on my radar and might come in at one point. Angelic Arbiter was in the deck for a very long time but eventually ended up being removed as it often didn't solve the boardstate in my playgroup. The other 2 cards are cool, but I'm not sure if they are powerful enough compared to the rest of the deck. Still, I'll have to try them some day.

InfernoTitan115 Thanks for the suggestion! It's a good card, too bad you can't hit it with Mayael herself.

Yarok there's a section in the primer explicitly explaining why I decided to not run the Eldrazi Titans. Void Winnower is in the deck as the only Eldrazi, maybe you missed it ;)

Cool deck. I am not sure if you are really looking for suggestions, but I had some thoughts when looking over your list.

I ran a Boros angel-tribal-reanimator list for a while, but eventually took it apart. One thing I learned when playing that deck was that a critical mass of low cmc utility creatures was needed in order to keeping me in the game long enough to start casting my Angels. I'd suggest adding Sakura-Tribe Elder (absolutely great with Emeria Shepherd), Selfless Spirit (more protection), and Remorseful Cleric (good early, excellent utility later) over some of the less impactful angels.

You might also consider swapping Graceful Reprieve with Brought Back as it is both more powerful and versatile. The new Obscuring Haze or the good old Comeuppance seem like better options over Endure. I also think Angelic Arbiter fits well with your Angel/protection theme.

Also, also, there seems to be very little card draw in the deck. Even adding some more egg style mana rocks like Mind Stone and Commander's Sphere might be helpful, but Greater Good and Rishkar's Expertise would both be fantastic here.

+1 from me!

I'm particularly interested in what you guys think about Angelic Arbiter taking the place of (at least) one copy of one of the other angels. Maybe replacing 1 copy of Iona, Shield of Emeria. My thinking is that the more weapons you have to limit what your opponent can do, the less likely they'll gain the upper hand. I just want to ensure that the deck has, at least, 1 back-up of every angel, in case one of them gets exiled. What do you think? Too much, or is the deck fine the way it is?
