Archangel of Tithes

Creature — Angel


As long as Archangel of Tithes is untapped, creatures can't attack you or a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays for each of those creatures.

As long as Archangel of Tithes is attacking, creatures can't block unless their controller pays for each of those creatures.

Changes, 11 Mar 2022: -1 Windborn Muse, +1 Tamiyo, Compleated Sage. I have plenty of attack tax effects and can spare one of them. A creature based one seems like the best choice, and I like Archangel of Tithes better so out came the muse. This Tamiyo I knew I wanted to include for recursion purpose since she was spoiled, so in she goes.

I don't understand your land choices.

The Pioneer meta is quite fast, these days.

Usually, for an Azorius deck, you would use playsets of Hallowed Fountain and Glacial Fortress

Lotus Field sacrifices itself if it enters alone. Due to this, it is the opposite of fast. It only really works in the Lotus Field combo deck.

Archangel of Tithes might be worth considering, although I usually only include it in Mono White.

These are my initial thoughts.

Hey m4rs, I got some cheap cards that can pull some weight on your deck:

Spelltithe Enforcer can get some more taxing done. Silent Arbiter can halt the battlefields. Crawlspace is even better since it doesn't limit your opponents attacking each other. Archangel of Tithes is one of the coolest taxing effects available on a creature (and the only one that forces people to pay mana to block). Norn's Annex is another unique tax effect since it requires colored mana to get through. And we can't forget the best taxing effect ever: Mystic Remora. Pair that up with Brago, King Eternal and you'll be drawing lots of cards for little mana. Also, Archon of Emeria is one of the best effects along the lines of Ethersworn Canonist you can run.

DigitlViking glad you like the deck! With an appropriate SB for the meta I am sure you can get a few wins with this deck, and more importantly have a ton of fun.

Archangel of Thune is our biggest finisher and we tend to want one as soon as we can cast it. That said it's a 5 drop and it's not like we can't win without her so I don't think there will be much problem going to 3 to save a few bucks. Lyra Dawnbringer is the second best choice for a 5 drop IMO for this deck, and they do quite similar things, so it won't make much difference if you go 3 Thunes and 1 Lyra. And in the future you may want to upgrade once tryed and seen why Thune has an slight edge.

About Shalai, Voice of Plenty , I think she's amazing, you are always happy to see her in your hand. She protects us and our hand super well and combos neatly with Giver of Runes. You feel safe with her on board. The only reason I don't run a 4 of is because she is legendary. But she doesn't really advance our win plan, so I assume that if you cut one of them our plan doesn't really change or gets affected, it's just a bit easier to disrupt.

About other options, the other best angel 4 drops are Archangel of Tithes, Angel of Jubilation and Linvala, Keeper of Silence. I already explained their their individual pros and cons more in depth in previous comments so check those out. But basically those 3 (may depending on the deck) disrupt your oppenents plan. But to have a card that my or my not disrupt the oppenents plan I'll rather have one that ensures that our plan doesn't get f****d. After all we are in white, every card is relevant.

Any way, if you manage to free two slots i'll probably give a go to 2 Speaker of the Heavens. When he is online is such a power house... A couple of Serra Avenger s might fill the gap also.

Card draw is a huge problem so I've been thinking lately about testing a 2 of Mask of Memory and my main candidates to go were actually an archangel and a Shalai so you might want to be the one who gives it a try and tell us all how it went. I think that with such a cheap both cast and specially equipping cost and so many flyers in our deck it has the chance of being pretty consistent.

I think it works really well with her powers as someone who sees and alters fates. I'd like to see a card, preferrably a commander, with a unique built-in pillowfort method.

Current methods or deterrence:

Full Protection: Blazing Archon, Peacekeeper, and Glacial Chasm

Conditional Protection: Arboria, Elephant Grass

(Mana) Tax effects: Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Archangel of Tithes, Archon of Absolution, Forbidding Spirit, Elephant Grass, Windborn Muse, Baird, Steward of Argive, and War Tax (My favorite, I love the politics!)

Other costs: Norn's Annex, Reclamation, Flooded Woodlands

Hurt the attacking creature: Barbed Foliage, Briar Patch, Sarkhan the Masterless, Lightmine Field, and Lost in the Woods

Hurt the attacking player: Revenge of Ravens, Hissing Miasma, Blood Reckoning, Marchesa's Decree, Riddlekeeper? (Is this even a downside? It's not a cost, per the rules.)

Protect/Help you, the defending player: Revenge of Ravens, Righteous Cause, Orim's Prayer, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Search the Premises, Thantis, the Warweaver, Slumbering Dragon

I don't count Aurification-style effects, as the damage was already dealt.

janederscore the deck now looks pretty solid tbh.

I've just seen that you can get a MH2 copy of Vindication for the same price as Generous Gift which is leagues better so check that instead (I don't get your American pricing at all...xD).

23 lands should be enough, but 24 is not too many so play however it makes you feel more "secure" (I have an ongoing feud between Vindication and Anguished Unmaking for the same reason, xD).

Archangel of Tithes seems better than it ends up being. With all the life gain you don't care much about letting some attackers through and with most of our creatures flying they will rarely have enough able blockers anyway (if any). For its American price I'll suggest you spend the money in Silent Clearing or Archangel of Thune . I think both those card will help the deck more and are easier to trade/sell in the future if need be.

But as said, this looks pretty solid now, had fun with it!

darkmus no worries haha, you don't talk too much don't worry about it. I was thinking about the lack of artifact/enchantment/planeswalker removal, and that does seem like a good solution.

With regards to Resplendent Angel , getting 2 now is the plan. I'll definitely aim for getting 4 Resplendents in the long run, they're very very solid cards. Archangel of Tithes is also on my wishlist for the future, that card also looks super strong. Having thought it over more, if I add in Seraph it'll probably be as a sideboard card.

I'm a bit nervous about running anything less than 24 lands, I have historically pretty bad draw luck and I find myself getting mana screwed way more often than I like haha. I do think I will swap out one Great Hall of Starnheim for a standard Plains, though. It's a card that I find (in my experience) to be pretty situational but, when it does pay out, it pays out really really well. Something I think is worth having around, but I agree probably only as a one-off.
