Thanks mate, i actually had True Conviction in here, but i cut it out for cheaper cmc Voice of the Blessed. I think i have enough lifegain-events in here to get Archangel of Thune out of control without the need of Conviction....but still it is a super strong card - it simply doesnt synergyses with one of the key card Springjack Shepherd...I have to think about it..

DemonDragonJ on How Can I Put Aurelia, …

I very much would like to put Aurelia, the Law Above into these two EDH decks, but I am not certain what cards I should remove to make room, for her.

For my Uril, the Miststalker deck, I believe that I could replace Flameblade Angel with Aurelia, because, while Flameblade Angel is an excellent card, she is reactive, while Aurelia is proactive, but my Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck is slightly more complicated, since I am not certain which card to remove. I originally was contemplating removing Archangel of Thune, but she is too amazing to not have in this deck, so I think that I may instead remove The Immortal Sun, because, while that is an excellent card, it does not contribute to the overall theme of that deck.

What does everyone else say about this subject? How can I put Aurelia, the Law Above into those two decks?

True Conviction with Archangel of Thune is a monster Synergy. First strike hits doubling the power on board then double strike hits getting a massive life total and doubling again.

Scapegoat will get the job done. Bonus points for refilling your hand if a boardwipe you can't otherwise avoid happens.

Together Forever is an excellent option if you have a counter theme (Felidar Retreat, Anduril, Narsil Reforged, Archangel of Thune, Cathars' Crusade, Nykthos Paragon, Luminous Broodmoth, etc.)

Archangel of Thune puts a counter on each creature you control as long as she connects. You don’t even have to build into life gain with her.

Only reason I see that she isn’t already included is you have enough 5 or higher drops already.

I've had really good results with a +1+1 counter subtheme. Anduril, Narsil Reforged, Shadrix Silverquill, Felidar Retreat, Archangel of Thune, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Nykthos Paragon (an enchantment and Alela conveniently has lifelink) are my go-wide +1+1 counters and Felisa, Fang of Silverquill / Breena, the Demagogue are my single target/support guys.

Reconnaissance is amazing here. Swing with EVERYONE safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped by the end of combat.

Vault of the Archangel effects combat in your favor even if you don't activate it. Just the unspoken threat of potential activation makes people think twice and when it is activated, you'll gain huge chunks of life.

I tried to make this on MTG.Design and it kept breaking.

Aurelia, Exemplar of War

Legendary Creature - Angel Soldier

Flying, vigilance, haste

Whenever Aurelia attacks, for each attacking nontoken Angel you control, create a number of 4/4 white Angel creature tokens with flying and vigilance tapped and attacking the same defending player or permanent.


So if Archangel of Thune is attacking Invasion of Zendikar  Flip, a 4/4 will be created ALSO attacking the Invasion as well.

I'm honestly laughing at the "cut Reconnaissance, it doesn't do much here" comments. Any go-wide deck that relies on turning creatures sideways should run this and never consider cutting it.

One suggestion I'd make is Nykthos Paragon. It's not a flyer but is conveniently an enchantment and Alela has lifelink so 2-3 counters on all your dudes is easily done and it just snowballs FAST from there. I do run a bit more of a +1+1 counter subtheme with things like Felidar Retreat, Shadrix Silverquill, Archangel of Thune, etc.

Vault of the Archangel is another card I'd make room for. Just the threat of potential activation affects combat in your favor and a 30+ swing in life totals isn't unheard of.
