Exile any number of target creatures you control. Return those cards to the battlefield under their owner's control at the beginning of the next end step.

Welcome to Magic! I highly recommend watching this deck-building template from The Command Zone, it gives extremely helpful suggestions on how to put a deck together that will run smoothly and do what you want it to do:

Also, you could visit EDHREC to get some suggestions on what cards might be good in your deck based on what other people are playing.

Some suggestions I would make:

Add Boros Signet and Talisman of Conviction to help make sure you get your colors. Because of the extra combat steps, if your budget allows, you could also consider adding Sword of the Animist.

I would consider some cheap removal spells to answer opponents' threats, namely Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, and Wear / Tear.

I would add some more protection, such as Boros Charm and Eerie Interlude.

Card draw is key, and I would consider adding Valakut Exploration and Laelia, the Blade Reforged.

Some cuts I would make:

  • Anointer of Valor, because it is too much mana to use its ability.
  • Norika Yamazaki, the Poet, because you don't have that many enchantments, and its only useful if someone killed one you really needed.
  • Rummaging Goblin, because you could just replace this with card draw or pseudo-card draw.

@Jhi69 Hey! I love the list. It's pretty similar to my own. You should consider Eerie Interlude as a protection spell that also has the benefit of being able to be cast on your opponents end step to flicker all of your humans except for Kyler and get sweet, sweet ETBs on all of them. :)

Excalibur478 Thanks! I'm really glad you like the deck, a friend of mine used to play a Brago deck years ago and I remember I hated playing against it, so I really tried to make something more interesting lol

I haven't playtested this one that much yet, but the weakest aspect is definitely closing out the game. Currently the main wincon is token generation with Blessed Sanctuary, Myr Battlesphere, Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward, Whirler Rogue, Blade Splicer and Pegasus Guardian, but I found that it's actually pretty slow. Approach of the Second Sun is a good backup wincon, but it paints a huge target on your back so it's better if you can redraw it quickly or lock down the board, and the deck is quite good at both os those things.

The deck can't protect the board very well against wipes, only having Eerie Interlude as protection or maybe a counterspell, but it can rebuild pretty consistently after one given how much card advantage it can generate.

Getting creatures tapped so Far Traveler can blink them isn't really an issue but can be a problem sometimes, so I've been thinking about adding more tap effects, although this can also be solved by breaking the budget a bit and adding more blink enablers like Conjurer's Closet

Thanks again for the comment and the upvote! If you have any more questions or maybe some suggestions, I'm all ears :)

Yeah, I think I mentioned this somewhere, but obviously you should run it if you have it. I do have it but it's in my planeswalker deck where it is more critical to saving my walkers from attacks and such. I do plan to replace Eerie Interlude with Guardian of Faith as a practical equivalent for this deck. That being said, by all means play it! Thanks for the comment!

Hi all! I'm getting back into the swing of things as I'm back from all of my intense AP Reading stuff and am playing again. I have another gameplay report, some updates, and some other thoughts related to the deck partly inspired by some player comments and questions here. Before I get to that however I want to respond to everyone I hadn't had a chance to yet!

The must-play card from Baldur's gate is Battle Angels of Tyr, which has already replaced Emeria Angel in my deck. Beyond that it's creating a headache for me with my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck since there are so many more dragons to consider, but I haven't seen a ton more for Giada.

Glad you're enjoying the deck! You can totally write it up and link it here if you'd like! The more resources, the better for us all! As far as protection goes, Commander's Plate is a good choice, as protection is so much better than we think it's going to be. Ephemerate not so much unless we have a blink theme because of the one-off, situational nature of the card. I'd also add that, in my experience, we don't need to worry too much if she dies a couple of times. At 2cmc we can recast her a few times no problem, and smart opponents will not feel it's not worth it when there will be more immediate threats on the board, or will not want to target her when she has already put some massive threats out. They killed her four times the other night, and when they ran out of removal I put out a massive flight of angels to kill them out in almost a single turn! I'd agree on Eye of Vecna being really good draw. Less so on Thorough Investigation; it's rather Dawn of Hope that always manages to be just not that great for me, though time will tell on this all. I'm trying to get Inspiring Overseer back in as it seems good. I have Angel of the Dire Hour in my binder too and just want to warn that it is a trap card. We'll almost never hold open seven mana to use it, so most of the time it will be an otherwise vanilla 5/4 flyer for 7 which is just terrible. If she were 4cmc, then she would definitely be played!

Thanks for the compliment, comment, and upvote! I upvoted your deck too. Feel free to let us know how it goes and share any insights you have from play!

Thanks for the compliment, comment, and upvotes! I am glad you are enjoying the deck, as I have been! As far as cards go, I can definitely see the case for Shadowspear. It does fit the curve and gives us life-link, and if there are Sigarda players or other annoying things like that in your meta it could me a good choice for dealing with that as well. Akroma's Will also probably belongs, for thematic reasons as much as anything. It would be a good replacement for Eerie Interlude, though I have another plan for replacing that card currently. Legion Loyalty does sound like fun and I'd recommend it for more Timmy-minded Giada players. At 8cmc I'm personally not willing to risk it, but that's just me! I can see some ridiculous "I win!" plays with a card like that from time to time! Blessed Sanctuary does sound like fun, and my unicorn/alicorn/pony loving daughters would probably appreciate it very much! That being said, it doesn't do much to help us with life loss combos or infinite attacker/attack step combos, which are pretty common out there, and as such is pretty narrow on those grounds. I play a lot of combo myself in other decks, and my top deck on tappedout is my Inalla, Archmage Ritualist deck which is about the most degenerate combo deck outside of cEDH imaginable. So, my tip from the dark lord about dealing with combos is that the best way to deal with them is to kill the combo player, destroy the combo pieces, or call out the combo pieces so someone else with removal can help us destroy them. That being said, unicorns are fun and flavorful, and if your meta has lots of ping-type infinite combos I could see it as a good meta choice in those circumstances!

thefiresoflurve, I think it’s one part metagame choice and another part choice for assumed optimization.

My meta is more targeted removal than wraths, so Cloudshift works in a pinch to save one creature and I don’t always need the full board protection. Most of the time, I feel like I use it to save Emiel the Blessed anyway. I do play Teferi's Protection, but that does do much more than wrath protection. Heroic Intervention is my other choice for wrath protection because it can work as either wrath or targeted removal protection with the hexproof (although Intervention always feels like it’s next on the chopping block).

My reasoning for optimization is that it’s easier to hold up a single mana than it is to hold up three. Additionally, cards like Eerie Interlude require a large board state when used proactively, and I feel like my playstyle is more early and incremental advantage plays. It tends be less splashy, but draws less aggro like you’re describing.

I might be wrong, because I know they’re solid cards, but it’s just the way I’ve run the list. I haven’t tested them, it’s strictly on theorycrafting that I haven’t included any of those cards.

Nice brew! What are your thoughts on Eerie Interlude/Semester's End? I run a similar set of protection cards in my Esper blink deck, but use Eerie Interlude in place of Cloudshift. I do find that if I actually resolve an Eerie Interlude with more than 2-3 creatures on the board, it tends to paint a target on my back, LOL.
