Angelic Overseer

Creature — Angel


As long as you control a Human, Angelic Overseer has hexproof and is indestructible.

Overall you need focus and tuning still. I think going away from enchantments can be beneficial however you lose the enchantress draw effects like Mesa Enchantress either way is fine just remember you are at your core and lifegain /weenies deck unless you want to change that. Cutting some on theme cards is necessary but I'd still keep in the more impactful ones.

Speaking of impact Doomed Traveler type effects don't do enough for you in my opinion unless you stick it on a permanent like Requiem Angel or a second life effect Luminous Broodmoth.

You definitely want more lifegain payoffs. Crested Sunmare is one of the best in my opinion.Ajani's Pridemate effectively reads when you have your commander. Gain +1+1 for each attacking creature.

Some cards seem like the underperform. A few Doomed Traveler Brave the Sands Call To Serve rather then pious Evangelion Suture Priest is both sides on 1. Also not sure evangelon is not black white identity because of back half tbh. Angelic Overseer Big beefy flyer sometimes. For 5 mana Lyra Dawnbringer would be better.

I'd recommend looking up edhrec for better ideas these are just off the top of my head.

I'll check your list again later when I'm on a computer.

Atm have scrapped and restarted remaking an old deck. It excites and scares me as cards have gotten better and my old list is lost. Jazal Goldmane is difficult to build around. But fun nonetheless.

There aren't really that many Human-Zombie positive interactions. Angels and Spirits might be better, with cards like Dearly Departed, Angelic Overseer, and Herald of War. Adding green gives you a couple different options for Sigarda, as well as Hamlet Captain and Survivors' Bond, among others.

If you want to stick with Humans and Zombies, I would suggest going or for additional options.

Hello friend

Nice deck, I love it!! it looks like you like flying so I came to recommend you Radiant, Archangel and also Angelic Overseer that becomes indestructible when your commander is on the battlefield.

See you around :)

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?

For Angels, go with Angels & Humans. There are angels and humans who get benefits when they share the field. Stuff Like Angelic Overseer.

Very cool!

When I started playing Standard, I started with Innistrad (I learned and got into it with the Dragons vs. Knights Duel deck, but didn't play a real format until the fall), and My deck was a white weenie, centered around Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (she came along later, but I have to mention her, she's so great!!), Elite Vanguard, Doomed Traveler, Selfless Cathar, Elite Inquisitor, Unruly Mob, Mentor of the Meek, Fiend Hunter, and topped by Angelic Overseer.

But the centerpieces of the deck were Champion of the Parish and Mikaeus, the Lunarch, who inspired this:

Thraben Recruiter

When Thraben Recuiter enters the battlefield, create X 1/1 white Human creature tokens, then put X +1/+1 counters among Humans you control.


I'd like to see a Kaldheim common, considering the cards already spoiled.

Current abilities called Characteristic-Defining Abilities (CDAs) function everywhere. Lord of Extinction has a P/T CDA. Other than CDAs, the traits of a card very rarely change. The effect of Angelic Overseer grants the creature that it represents on the battlefield those abilities, but it does not change the text nor abilities of the actual card.
