Seabody & alexjustdoit thanks for sharing your thoughts, much appreciate, I was not familiar with Condemn to be honest, in some ways that even seems better than swords.

I wasn't especially hot on Angelic Ascension but have seen some hype for it and was keen to get your inputs. Thank you again.

Openil - if you need more removal that can hit planeswalkers, Generous Gift, Anguished Unmaking, and Chaos Warp are all better than Angelic Ascension. Beyond that you could try Despark which hits a lot of planeswalkers that get run in EDH. Keep in mind Boros Charm can also hit planeswalkers for 4, and we can also push thru some damage with evasive creatures directed at planeswalkers.

I think Angelic Ascension is a pass for me. I can just see someone getting spiteful with that 4/4 and us having to find a way to deal with it. I would run Swords or Path over this. If you're looking for another of this type of effect Condemn isn't too bad. In a different vein I like Generous Gift - you still give them a creature but it has no evasion which makes it much easier to manage and Gift hits anything. With out deathtouchers they are more like't ti send the elephant elsewhere which is good news of us.

What's your thoughts on Angelic Ascension the additional mana over Swords to Plowshares is big but it also hits planeswalkers and is still able to be gotten with Sunforger. the flyer may be awkward with monarch but i feel like most of the time giving your opponent a 4/4 flyer is better than giving them a land. It's also not impossible to use it on a late game Serra Ascendant that has lost it's buff as a rattlesnake blocker seems at least decent.
