If you were in my playgroup, I would REQUIRE you to put Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld in the Command Zone, a la Partner's With.

sean360 I have considered it! It is a strong card and certainly can stay under consideration. I would appreciate anyone who can testify to how it's performed in their decks so far. My general thoughts on this are this. It's ceiling is super high, because if it gets left untouched we can recur stuff at least once per time around the table (more if Archaeomancer's Map or a similar effect allows us to play additional lands, or if one of our swords/dagger ramps one out. For this reason opponents would be forced to remove it, because if they don't we can just recur any creatures they destroy. The floor is we can't take advantage of it before it gets destroyed, and at 7cmc it is at the high end of our curve. It is of course, the same cmc as Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld and is a recursion piece with a much higher ceiling, but the fun and possibility of Brisela, Voice of Nightmares  Meld  Meld, as well as the fact that we can tutor it, means that we keep that one on the board. It could be a replacement for Karmic Guide, because in this deck we generally want to keep out angels, and guide's echo cost is not something we usually want to pay, but often will, making its cost more over the long term. It'll definitely be on my maybe-board and I will eventually try it out, but for those of you with experience with the card I'd love to hear how it is working for you.

I've ordered some cards and pulled a few from my binder which I may add to the deck, but while they are enroute I thought I'd telegraph my thoughts on them so that some of you can weigh in with your thoughts.

1) Draw Lands- War Room and Bonders' Enclave While I don't like using four mana (including the land itself) to draw a card, I'll be happy to in a pinch or when the mana is free. These are not primary draw, but they will add options and I think get use, and since they don't come into play tapped that's good.

2) Seraph Sanctuary Missed this one in my first build, but it's obviously great here.

3) Emergence Zone This is a hidden gem most people forget about. A huge piece of aggro is the element of surprise, and this allows us to make bigger plays and functionally double mana by playing on our opponent's end step before our turn. It's great.

4) Sanctuary Warden This is another painfully obvious choice that I missed on the first round (I should have read the card more closely). It's an angel draw engine in Giada that leverages our Giada counters rather than the helpful shield counters it comes with. Nice.

5) Tome of Legends This is a favorite draw piece for me in two of my other decks, so I was thankful that someone reminded me of it. It also fits our low curve nicely.

6) Vanquisher's Banner This card does not fit our draw curve as nicely, but is broken and probably the second best draw engine for this deck.

7) Eye of Vecna I saw this in a few other lists and it seems great. Why not pay a small amount of the life we are gratuitously gaining for a card each turn? For 2 mana, and we get a card immediately when we play it! The only downside is that Angel of Jubilation shuts it down, but that is a narrow case.

8) Mask of Memory I saw this on other lists as well and it seems like a good choice. We get to look at two cards, end up one, and discard what we need least. There could also be lines of play where we discard a good card like Gisela, the Broken Blade  Meld and return her with Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld, so there's that too.

9) Together Forever Premium protection from both board wipes and targeted removal. And for an efficient cost. What's not to like?

Thanks for the comments and questions, Guerric!

Well, so far, I've only had Marshal's Anthem come up once in a game, but when it did, it was sweet. Of course, that was mid-game, and I had plenty of mana, so I was able to get back several angels. I do know, however, from long experience with the card, that it can be hit-and-miss. The thing I like about it is the potential for mass recursion in mono-. I do have my eye on it, though. I run Karmic Guide and Reya Dawnbringer and Emeria, The Sky Ruin already, but my Avacyn deck is hogging my Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld.

If it is a question of either-or, I would recommend Together Forever over Marshal's Anthem.

This deck is still pretty new, so I've not actually drawn Speaker of the Heavens yet. It has been good in my Avacyn deck for a while, though, and I can only think it will be better in Giada.

Victory's Herald is a blast for the lifelink, and Sanctuary Warden is a gem!

Looks pretty awesome! I've actually got a kind of similar deck with Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld if you want to check it out at all. It's a little different, going into self mill a lot and heavy artifact synergy, but some similarities there. I'm actually planning to add Giada soon, she's a great card.

Bruna Blinks Bombs (EDH) if you want to check it out at all.

I like your take on it, and yep, angels will always be such a classy way to play it : )

I would be totally plebeian and go for Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld and Gisela, the Broken Blade  Meld. I would build them tomorrow, just for the fun of it.

I'd love to add Lier, Disciple of the Drowned to my Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld deck. Right now I use a lot of self mill to select reanimation targets, but white has very few ways to get instants and sorceries back from the grave, so they are dead cards when they get milled. Having Lier would open the deck up to two whole different card types, and it would be awesome.

But, if I'm being honest, I'd probably do Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld and Emrakul, the Promised End for first the flavor, and secondly because if I add no colors to my deck, then it's already done : )

4 things:

1: Mono-White EDH deck based around Eldrazi and lead by Brisela? You have my interest!

2: Court of Grace, as a suggestion. I may be overrating the Monarch mechanic a bit, but Court of Grace is turning into an auto-include for not just my white decks, but my decks that have white in them.

3: I briefly considered building a deck around Brisela, and my friend said that Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld would be better in the command zone, because she can reanimate Gisela, the Broken Blade  Meld, in case you loose Gisela. Granted, my plan would have been more focused on killing people with Brisela, Voice of Nightmares  Meld  Meld, but just something I thought I can pass on.

4: Meldrazi. Meld Eldrazi. Meldrazi. Well played, well played!
