Archangel Avacyn Discussion

1empyrean on The Angels' True Nature

Well, the angels theme is never going to be the fastest, though Kaalia of the Vast would be a better, if expensive, commander for the theme. If you really want to embrace the theme, that's who I recommend using, but Its understandable if you don't want to switch.

I like Archangel Avacyn  Flip, but she isn't really an angel tribal commander, given how her flip ability triggers. Maybe try building around the ability as opposed to a theme if you want to keep her as commander.

"To find the place where true evil lies, mind not below and look to the skies!"

Led by Archangel Avacyn  Flip, the angels are out to see the Multiverse burn! Sadly these angels are missing a good win condition other than damage and implore those of you to assist! If you succeed, you will greatly be favored by the holy light of the angels and receive their gratitude for assisting in their cause!

While I am sure I haven't played the game as long as many of you i still have some favorite cards. I started playing at sleep away camp when a friend gave me a deck full of 1/1s and boy did i love that deck, it brought me into the color white. The first commander game I ever saw as also at that camp, and One of the commanders was Sigarda, Host of Herons and after i saw it i knew angels were my absolute favorite tribe. For the rest of that camp i tried to get was many angels as i could, and i only got one. it was a foil Angel of Deliverance and that was my new favorite card and cemented angels as my favorite. When i got home i spent countless hours on amazon looking at all the different angels i could get. Avacyn quickly became my favorite character and that led to innistrad becoming my favorite plane, so to answer the original question, Archangel Avacyn  Flip is my favorite card because it shows many parts of who i am as a magic player.

I would specifically- take out: Herald of Faith (Not very good. Body is barely ok, 2 life is not that much) Puresteel Paladin (You don't have enough equipment for it to be good) Tajic, Blade of the Legion (It doesn't have any evasion, and a conditional 7/7 is not good) Defy Death (This effect is not good enough for 5 mana. There is a 4 mana version but it's still not very good) Sephara, Sky's Blade (While you do have a lot of fliers, you don't have enough to get the reduced cost frequently)

A lot of your Planeswalkers don't really contribute to your plan of attacking a ton, I would drop some of them.

Mentor is not a very good keyword for commander, a single +1/+1 counter on each attack is not very good, I would recommend taking out the creatures

You do have too many board wipes. You specifically don't want the board to be wiped because you rely on creatures a ton. There might be some synergy with all of your ways to give indestructible.

To help you build the deck, I would organize it with custom tags. Sort all of your cards into one of the following categories:

() Lands

() Removal

() Draw/Card advantage (Etali goes in this, for example)

() Ramp

() Goodstuff (general good cards, like Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Akroma, Angel of Fury. These cards are good, but do not contribute to the general deck theme or synergise with multiple attack steps)

() Synergy (cards that do things when you attack. I would only file cards that give you a permanent advantage when they attack, like Firemane Avenger Sun Titan or Hero of Bladehold, but not Odric, Lunarch Marshal)

Would you consider Archangel Avacyn  Flip? or Silverwing Squadron? The silverwing seems really good because it makes non human knights and the archangel is a non human with flash with a wrath effect on the back side.

I would consider Academy Rector if you have ways to sac it or kill it on demand.
