kimosabe, I do know of the combo, but, faceless haven would break tribal. The entire deck is ONLY Angels, with no possibility of other creature types. There’s not even an Angel Warrior or Angel Cleric. When I found out they errated Chancellor of the Annex to be a “Phyrexian” Angel I removed her mid-game. I can’t even run Decree of Justice. Yes it makes angels but if you cycle it, it COULD make soldiers. STRICT tribal lol

And snow-covered lands are too cheap! Plus, the Avon foils are one of the prettiest Plains in the game, and Angels deserve the prettiest.

Favorite Alt art on a card is for sure the full art variant of Oxidize. passimo! Big plus for bringing up Suture Priest! I feel the same way for Phyrexian Unlife and Shattered Angel, not to mention Chancellor of the Annex. New Phyrexia had excellent art direction.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Thanks for the suggestions XinZhao, I’m not sold on Knowledge Pool , but Emissary of Serra is definitely going in. Awesome card, almost as good as Iona. Chancellor of the Annex is a good swap, but I like Chancellor’s auto-counter effect for early game. Maybe I can drop something else instead, I’ll think about it. The new Profane Tutor looks interesting as well.

multimedia on WTF KAALIA

Hey, well done on a budget. Nice Aurelia, the Warleader :)

Phyrexian Reclamation can be a repeatable source of recursion for Kaalia or any other creature, even at instant speed. Let Kaalia die, put her into your graveyard not the Command Zone; recur her to your hand which bypasses Commander tax. Dragon Tempest is a source of haste for Kaalia and any flying creature you cast or reanimate. It has the bonus of being able to do damage if the creature is a Dragon.

Dragon Mage pairs well with Emeria Shepherd . Mage discards the permanents that you then reanimate with Shepherd and Mage refills your hand to keep doing it. Nahiri, the Harbinger can be reanimated by Shepherd and her -8 in two turns can tutor for any creature or artifact including Shepherd. -8 Nahiri, tutor for Shepherd, play a Plains and reanimate Nahiri. Nahiri has other uses besides her -8 she can be repeatable discard/draw for reanimation or even repeatable removal that exiles.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a Demon who can reduce the casting cost of all other Angels/Demons/Dragons. If he or other creatures are attacking and doing combat damage to opponents then he's ramp to cast high CMC creatures which helps if Kaalia is disrupted. Arcane Signet is a staple mana rock in Commander. Orzhov Signet and Rakdos Signet is more two drop ramp.

Some changes to consider, with suggestions of cuts close to or equal in price:

My advice is cut the majority of the equipment theme for more ramp since ramp is going to help more to cast Kaalia and high CMC creatures. Phage the Untouchable and Sigarda's Aid are two expensive price cards for your budget that aren't doing much in your deck. You can't cheat Phage onto the battlefield with Kaalia or reanimation which makes it pretty useless. Aid is a good card, but not taking enough advantage of equipment and I don't think you need to since the most important equipment you want to play Greaves/Boots are low mana cost to cast and equip.

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.
