I try to keep it up to date too (^-^)

this is probably the only Avacyn, Guardian Angel deck still alive, everyone would rather use Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

Thank you for the suggestions! Iona we're specifically avoiding due to the no-fun factor associated with it. Also because I play, among my decks, mono-black, mono-red, and mono-green, lol. For the same reason we've avoided Linvala.

Luminarch Ascension we've considered before, however if you don't get it out early, many decks can make it so you never get to four counters.

Ghostly Prison/Authority of the Consuls/Blind Obedience are interesting includes, though I'd doubt we'd put more than one of the three in. As ways to slow down opponents, I think I favor Authority as it comes down the earliest and is the least intrusive, keeping us from being marked as a threat early on.

As for Adarkar Valkyrie, I personally think it's fantastic, but he thinks he has enough recursion already. I'm trying to convince him that since he has snow synergies he should put it in, but we'll see.

I should mention we just replaced Avacyn, Guardian Angel and Light of the Legion since the Avacyn never felt good to play. The Light is still in testing, but it seems like a good support for the combat-oriented strategy we've got going on.

Making some updates to address some of the concerns I have with the early version of this deck:



Horizon Canopy


Razorverge Thicket

Temple Garden

Windswept Heath

Wooded Bastion

(no need to have an extreme mana base with this early of a deck version. Expect mana base to continue to change)


Windbrisk Heights

Blighted Woodland

Seraph Sanctuary

Secluded Steppe

Ghost Quarter

Temple of the False God



Archangel of Tithes

Avacyn, Guardian Angel

Bruna, the Fading Light

Gisela, the Broken Blade

(no ETB )

Herald of War

(no ETB, cost reduction on turn 5 not powerful enough)

Oracle of Mul Daya

(too expensive)

Weathered Wayfarer

(expensive value negated by real ramp)


Aegis Angel

Angelic Arbiter

Banisher Priest



Chromatic Lantern

(too expensive for a 2 color deck)


Swiftfoot Boots

Hedron Archive



Anointed Procession

(off strat)


Into the Wilds



Ajani Unyielding

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Yes, Spike Feeder's ability can target itself. There's no language in its ability preventing it from doing so. When a permanent's ability cannot target itself it's typically worded as "another target..." like you see in cards like Avacyn, Guardian Angel.

Edgar Markov Isn't even that powerful. I've seen him played several times and never once saw him win even in a casual enviroment. He gets rocked hard by several decks of my own, most of which are tier 3 or lower, Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Avacyn, Guardian Angel. Free vampires and haste is great and all, but fairly easy to get around.

Avacyn, Guardian Angel and Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo can both blank attacks. I play Avacyn though and she's very mana dependent obviously, as is OE to maximize him.

If you people are willing to accept a tier 4 list, I like to think I've made a pretty damn good Avacyn, Guardian Angel deck.
