Archangel of Thune occurrence in decks from the last year
Archangel of Thune Discussion
2 weeks ago
Swapped a couple more cards around:
Wrath of God is out for Ajani, Strength of the Pride . Ajani costs the same, usually comes in able to ultimate, and exile opponents creatures AND artifacts, and if not, he’ll gain us a heap of life so we can next turn. Basically another Elspeth Tirel .
Palace Jailer is out for Recruiter of the Guard . Basically, it was this or buy an Auriok Champion to ensure I get a life gain engine online as soon as possible. Auriok costs so much right now, and recruiter can be bounced and played repeatedly to find any number of wonderful creatures from our library.
Heliod, Sun-Crowned is out for Archangel of Thune . Archangel is just better, and I forgot it existed. Heliod’s job was to make things big enough to swing for a kill (sounds boring) or make stuff big enough to make pulling off wins with Altar of Dementia easier. Again, archangel just does it better.
That’s it for now.

Previews for Strixhaven have finally begun!
I shall first say that I am not particularly fond of the learn mechanic, because being able to obtain cards from outside the game is very powerful and prone to abuse, so I believe that that ability should have bene abandoned.
I also severely dislike the wording on Augusta, dean of order, because players do not attack, their creatures do.
Even further, Will, scholar of frost being able to unconditionally exile permanents is yet another break in blue; it does not matter that the players are given tokens to compensate for the loss of the permanents. Blue is not supposed to be able to remove permanents, other than by returning them to their owners’ hands, so why does WotC continue to give blue such powerful removal?
Why does Uvilda not use the suspend mechanic? That would have been much easier than creating an entirely new type of counter for her ability.
Willowdusk’s ability would be so much better if it could be used at any time, as the fact that it can be used only as a sorcery severely limits its usefulness.
Lisette is mostly worse than is Archangel of Thune , but it is nice to have that effect on a legendary creature, for use in EDH. However, Valentin is far too inexpensive for such a powerful effect; how did WotC think that such a card was balanced?
Breena, the demagogue is very nice, but her ability is useless in one-versus-one games, so any deck that contains her must be used only in games with three or more players.
I do like the cards in the mystical archive, but only two of them are multicolored, thus far, so I hope that more of them shall be. Another reprint of Time Warp is always welcome, to me.
The flavor text on both Blue Sun's Zenith and Krosan Grip implies that the students of Stirxhaven are aware of the existence of other planes, which is actually a nice departure from the majority of planes being utterly unaware of each other’s existences.
Ward being a new keyword is nice, so I do hope that WotC gives it to all previous cars that had it (which were admittedly not many).
Adrix and Nev render Parallel Lives obsolete, but still cannot replace Doubling Season , due to them lacking that card's other ability. Also, why has the wording been changed from "if an effect would create one or more tokens" to "if one or more tokens would be created under your control?" I dislike that, because there is a difference between a cost and an effect.
I see that the "reveal land" cycle from Shadows Over Innsitrad is the cycle that is being completed, which is nice for fans of that cycle, but disappointing, to me, as I was hoping for the "battle land" cycle from Battle for Zendikar to be completed, but I am certain that that cycle shall eventually be completed, some day.

Hero of Precinct One and Tome of the Guildpact are some decent cards that care about multicolored without being so themselves. Orzhov picks could be Pillar of the Paruns , Beckon Apparition , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Nightsky Mimic , Kaya's Guile , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Karlov of the Ghost Council , Resolute Rider , Seraph of the Scales , or Vizkopa Guildmage . I tried to pick card suggestions that fit in with either the multicolored or the lifegain plans. Popular inclusions in more tempo or aggro focused Mimic/Divinity builds include Castigate , Orzhov Charm , Mourning Thrull , Cartel Aristocrat , Sin Collector , and Gift of Orzhova . Combine the two and you might get some value out of a shell of Ajani's Pridemate , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Light of Promise , Wall of Limbs , and Archangel of Thune .
Anyway, now that I've probably named every black and white card ever printed, do let me know if you have questions. Good luck!

Hm it doesnt seem to have a consistent plan nor a legit format. I would suggest to go for modern since it has a lot of cards in its pool and is the most common 60 cards format besides standard. I am an Angels Deck builder since 6 years, so i have a couple of suggestions. Of course that doesnt mean that you have to change something, i mean it is just a suggestion and all the mentioned cards wont fit anyway in a 60 cards deck. Try to make it more consistent if needed by playing 4-of or tutor effects.
Since you mentioned your friend plays burn, i will give you some cards that will make your winrate nearly 100% against burn. Burn has barely no chance against lifegain decks. Angels can be build in a lifegain way, which i am personally no fan of but many are, so here we go.
If you want to check out a non lifegain modern Angel deck, you can check out Devotion to White Angels.
- Akroma, Vision of Ixidor
- Angel of the Dire Hour
- Angelic Arbiter
- Angelic Wall
- Herald of War
- Serra Avenger
- Wall of Reverence
- Angelic Renewal
- Angel's Feather
- Devout Invocation
- Resplendent Angel
- Archangel of Thune
- Lyra Dawnbringer
- Giver of Runes
- Soul Warden
- Auriok Champion
- Gisela, the Broken Blade
- Bruna, the Fading Light
- Ajani, Strength of the Pride
- Wall of Omens
- Nyx-Fleece Ram
- Authority of the Consuls
- Path to Exile
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Emeria, The Sky Ruin
- Settle the Wreckage
- Leyline of Sanctity
- Righteous Valkyrie
- Speaker of the Heavens
- Serra the Benevolent

SuckassBolas Nice. I actually have something like that in my deck with Archangel of Thune , hence the +10/+10 flyers :-) And good to hear you use Light of Promise which is one (W) cheaper than Sunbound which many people still use. Although you could use both.
Another addition I considered but did not put in in order to keep the deck more mono-white (and lower power) was Walking Ballista which of course combines for an infinite loop with Heliod, Sun-Crowned .

I understand your point but it is unfortunately not valid for this deck. Shapeshifters and creature types have a strong appearance in Kaldheim but i would not call it an Angels Deck anymore if you just fill it up with 20 different creature types and putting a playset of Maskwood Nexus in it and call it a day (Technically the truth, but it misses the flavour of an Angels deck).
The whole point of "Devotion to white Angels" is to be a mono white devotion deck that features only one creature type if possible (modern contains too few angels for that, so humans as a subtheme do the rest of the job). I still miss an Angels that is Skyclave Apparition and an Angel that is Gadwick, the Wizened in mono white
Sephara, Sky's Blade is an Angel only suitable for a flyers/token-deck that can spam creatures. Lingering Souls , Spectral Procession , Midnight Haunting etc. This deck simply has no possibility to cast it for
Flickering effects need a lot of ETB creatures to work with. Except 4x Wall of Omens and 2x Thalia's Lancers there is none. If you really need the protection, i don't think there is any other viable option at the moment than Giver of Runes
Ranger of Eos is no option because it's only 1 devotion to white. Ranger-Captain of Eos would be the better fit but i still would need a third 1 drop option besides Weathered Wayfarer , Giver of Runes
Bishop of Wings belongs to a lifegain Angels deck that features a complete different set of Angels like Angel of Vitality , Resplendent Angel , Archangel of Thune , Lyra Dawnbringer . This is a non lifegain version. To be honest, i'm no fan of lifegain or tokens strategies in white. White can be so much more than that
