I know that this is a WIP, but there are a few issues. Archangel Avacyn  Flip technically has a color identity and isn't legal in this deck. Same problem with Sigarda, Bruna, Razia and a handful of others. There are also some cards that are included twice.

If you want this deck to be playable, Giada, Font of Hope is probably your best bet for the commander. Sephara, Sky's Blade is another option. Morophon, the Boundless is a five color option, though that means the manabase will get pretty expensive. If you don't care about this deck being terribly competitive, and your playgroup is cool with it, then you could change the format of this deck to Commander: Rule 0 and run Serra the Benevolent anyway. If anyone isn't okay with that, then just swap her for Giada or Avacyn or someone. Easy. Just be sure to ask beforehand. The only issue with Serra as commander is her ultimate ability being immune to interaction. Promise not to use it and most people should be fine with it.

You'll probably want to look at cards like War Room, Bonders' Enclave and Vanquisher's Banner as sources of card draw, as well. Other cards that work really well with the angels tribal theme are Bishop of Wings, Rally of Wings, Resplendent Angel if you focus on a lifegain theme, and Harsh Mercy as a "board wipe but not for me".

Art wise, Angel of Flight Alabaster, Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Lyra Dawnbringer (who's getting a new full art treatment in Dominaria Remastered!) are some of my favorites.

All I want in a commander is a five color angel that says you draw a card whenever you cast an angel spell >_<

Angels are my favorite tribe in Magic, and I know Giada, Font of Hope exists, but even then there are angels outside of mono-white I want to run like Aurelia, the Warleader and Archangel Avacyn  Flip. I've made a Giada deck that is rule-zeroed into a Boros deck, but I'd still have to ask everyone I play with if they're fine with me playing it. I've also built Kaalia of the Vast, but it's just not the same since she's a human. Give me an angel commander with at least boros colors and cares about card advantage dangit!

Hey JaakpG71 Take any of my constructive critisim with a grain of salt as I am far from an expert deck builder but I thought I would provide you with my two cents.

First off, you mention the build is around Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Brisela, Voice of Nightmares  Meld  Meld but I am not exactly seeing anything that "builds" around those. Avacyn transformation it pretty much a Anger of the Gods and Lightning while Brisela does not allow your opponent to cast most cards seen in Modern play. The majority of the deck feels more like a Maddness deck built around discarding and playing stuff for cheap. You are also only running a single copy of the creatures you are building around with no way to force them so the chances of actually playing them is extremely low.

In terms of mana, your deck currently sits at nearly 3 CMC on average with only 22 lands which feels pretty low. You are also running for than 60 cards which in my oppinion, is a trap unless you have a reason fro running additional cards. I would recommend shaving it down to only 60 and trying to squeeze some extra lands in there or something in place of a land. For example, Giada, Font of Hope could perhaps be a nice addition for an angel themed deck.

Hopefully something in there sticks and gives you some ideas. Good luck and happy brewing!

Nice dino deck! Honestly, part of me kind of hopes that they don't print newer and better dinosaurs in the future just because of how cool the ones we've got are. Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor are so good, and I really like your addition of Reckless Rage That's one I always wanted to try and it just never quite made the list, but I bet it can be nuts good.

One that I play in dinos is Ulvenwald Tracker to get another one drop and to have reusable fight effects. I know that it can be hard to find room for non dinos in there, but it's a very good one if you can find space for it.

But yep, I have a sans-red version if you ever want to check it out Dino Stomps To Value and it uses Tamiyo, Field Researcher to great effect and also Enter the Unknown which is one of my favorite ramp/scryish/pump cards. And Archangel Avacyn  Flip as both a flash indestructable to go with enrage, but also when she flips and hits all creatures for enrage effects. Plus a big flash flier is just good : )

But it's just different. Your deck is definitely more synergistic in dinos, and I really like seeing the different takes on my all time favorite magic creatures. They are surprisingly versatile for big bitey lizards : ) Awesome list!

Just as a quick note, despite what the site says, this deck would not actually be Commander legal because Archangel Avacyn  Flip technically has a RW color identity, due to her flipside being red.

I enjoy the comparison that Magic is a combination of chess and poker. It's similar to chess in that each piece serves a purpose and you need to foresee potential threats several turns in advance. For example, the best time to drop a Genesis Wave is after the black player has cast their Toxic Deluge, not before. If you know what your threats are, you can play around them.

However it is also like poker; You need to know when to call, bluff, fold and raise the stakes. Do you need that Avacyn, Angel of Hope to win the game? Probably not. But is the blue player who's been itching to counter something going to leap at the chance to keep Avacyn off the table? Likely, yes.

Question: Who here plays chess? I was in chess club for years from middle school into high school. Which is the strongest piece of the game?

If you said the Queen, you don't know how to play chess. The correct answer is the King. Without it, you lose.

People become so wrapped up in the whole I NEED TO WIN AT ALL COSTS SO I NEED TO DO XYZ SO TO DO XYZ I NEED ABCDEFG AND 1234567 but... Then you take away the chess, and the poker.

Now it's an unfeeling algorithm.

It'll eventually get to the point of raw statistics.

  • "You've got Teferi Azorius control? Nice. I'm running Jeskai Burn. Since your Teferi won't last on the table, I've won. Gg."

That's not for me. I'm sorry, but I'm here to play a GAME, not be told I've already lost the moment you unpack your deck.
