Anger of the Gods


Anger of the Gods deals 3 damage to each creature. If a creature dealt damage this way would die this turn, exile it instead.

Just a small nitpick: the 3/3 (and any other creatures that would die) is not destroyed, but exiled instead.

If a creature dealt damage by Anger of the Gods would die in the turn, the creature is exiled instead.

Spells and abilities resolve one at a time and there is a round of priority between each thing that resolves. Each time a player would receive priority state-based actions (SBAs) are checked until none are performed and then triggers are put onto the stack. The way the stack would work in your scenario assuming no responses not in the question is:

Arcbond is cast and allowed to resolve (anger is a sorcery after all).

Anger of the Gods is cast (stack is now Anger of the Gods )

Reverberate is cast in response targeting Anger of the Gods (stack is now Anger of the Gods , Reverberate )

Stack resolves in first in, last out (FILO) order. Reverberate resolves creating a copy of Anger of the Gods . (stack is now Anger of the Gods , Anger of the Gods copy.)

Stack resolves FILO. The Anger of the Gods copy resolves dealing three damage to the 3/3 and triggering the Arcbond trigger. (stack is now Anger of the Gods .)

SBAs are checked and the 3/3 is destroyed. (as well as any other creatures with 3 or less toughness.)

Triggers are put on the stack. (stack is Anger of the Gods , Arcbond trigger.)

Stack resolves FILO. Arcbond trigger does three damage to all creatures. (stack is now Anger of the Gods .)

(SBAs are going to be checked before the next thing resolves, so any creature that now had lethal damage marked would be destroyed)

Stack resolves FILO. Anger of the Gods does three damage to all creatures. As you can see, the creature with Arcbond on it is not currently on the battlefield and so will not trigger.

So you will deal a total of 9 damage to all creatures.

Hi guys, I've recently been playing some commander, and was curious as to how this scenario would play out? Would the 3/3 creature die before the second "copy" of Anger of the Gods goes off? Or would it take 6 damage, deal 6 damage, and then die? I'm a little confused as to how the damage would work.


Arcbond + Reverberate + Anger of the Gods

If you want to play control, i would cut Dragon's Hoard as you have only 10 possible triggers.

You only have two Counterspells and need more draw.

Countersquall , Mana Leak , Logic Knot are good Counterspells. Maybe Cryptic Command . Stubborn Denial with Dragons out there is another good non-creature Counter. Dissolve for Counter and Filter. For Draw Glimmer of Genius with Aether Hub ?? or Archmage's Charm for Counter or draw? Search for Azcanta  Flip for filtering and cardsearching?

Anger of the Gods for Massremoval? Rakdos Charm for like evrything in the sideboard?

With Faithless Looting (alongside Hogaak) banned, a Golgari shell might well be the best way to approach graveyard decks. However as someone who played Hogaak and before that Hollow One (with the Vengevines) in modern I'd say your missing a payoff creature. The problem with Vengevine is it dies and is exiled to Anger of the Gods which is a pretty common sweeper. You really want one of the bigger delve beaters here; Tombstalker Hooting Mandrills Gurmag Angler Necropolis Fiend Tasigur, the Golden Fang Become Immense or with perhaps a little work Soulflayer

My plan has been to try Tombstalker, I'm not sure it's good enough and unlike Hogaak can't be recurred, the other option that might work in a Vengevine shell, if you want the blue splash is Skaab Ruinator which is both a zombie and a horror, which might still be relevant... The deck list I'm working on is Ode to Hogaak if you fancy a look.

Alright, let's get down to it! Anje Falkenrath is relatively new and I'm not yet sold on her validity as a vampire commander. My primary hang up is the overall weakness of madness as a mechanic. It is still critically underrepresented on cards, and of those that do exist only a handful are actually any good. I'm not saying it can't be done, just that I am skeptical that it can compete with existing vampire archetypes.

My overall impression is that you've got a decent base here, but have made several choices that I see a lot of new EDH players make in their early decks. In general, you could use more card draw and I would encourage you to take a look at EDHREC or other vampire decks on here for inspiration in terms of what kinds of effects truly shine in EDH versus other formats.
