Possible includes: Herald of War, Thraben Doomsayer, Oblivion Ring, Might also look at some more instants and sorceries like a field wipe you can use when all your creatures are indestructible. You might also look at more card draw like Rogue's Gloves or even Arcane Encyclopedia.

Possible to remove: Thraben Valiant, Ikiral Outrider, Affa Protector, Attended Knight.

Feridia on Serra's Descendants, competitive Angel Tribal

1 month ago

I Love this. My very first deck I ever built was angel tribal. Been trying to figure out how to make it competitive ever since. This deck build looks great. I always tried to “cheat” angels in though through re animation or my very first deck through Herald of War. If I ever get back into fnm I might give angels another try.

TheBubbaEA It really depends on your playgroup's meta when considering certain strategies. If your group has a lot of board wipes 3.45 will be too slow and hard to rebuild a board state if you are hard casting all your creatures. For me personally I like explosive turns so I find ways to generate a lot of tokens or cheat out a bunch of creatures near the end game (in my playgroup turn 10+). For example using effects like Omniscience , Rise of the Dark Realms .

If you do choose to go more aggro angels may not be the best option due to their avg high cmc. But if you do stick with angels a couple other cards worth considering would be:

  1. Herald of War
  2. Herald's Horn
  3. Oketra's Monument
  4. Warden of Evos Isle
  5. The Book of Exalted Deeds
  6. Thraben Watcher
  7. Righteous Valkyrie
  8. Valkyrie Harbinger
  9. (There are other cards with similar effect)
  10. Bishop of Wings
  11. Speaker of the Heavens
  12. Geist of Saint Traft

Some other cards I like, although may not be quite right for this deck:

  1. Basri Ket (For that -2) similar to Launch the Fleet
  2. Basri's Lieutenant
  3. Luminous Broodmoth
  4. Brought Back
  5. Storm Herd (Very high cmc but high reward when paired with Odric, Lunarch Marshal + Akroma, Vision of Ixidor )
  6. Well of Lost Dreams

Some white staples(some are quite expensive):

  1. Smothering Tithe
  2. Mangara, the Diplomat
  3. Esper Sentinel
  4. Land Tax
  5. Felidar Retreat
  6. Keeper of the Accord
  7. Archaeomancer's Map
  8. Verge Rangers

Sorry only white cards come to mind as I myself was building a mono white angels deck.

Shalai Angels, Counters, and Good Stuff

I have a few specific things I have thoughts on and I was hoping someone could check my logic. Here are somethings on the "Maybe" list I need a second opinion on.

Blackblade Reforged ---> Heirloom Blade : Blackblade has a higher ceiling, giving me a potential voltron win if I need it, but I only have 6 or 7 legends in the deck including Shalai. Heirloom Blade has a low-cost investment, but late game that +3/+1 might not be enough in a pinch. Is it worth the loss of the high ceiling to save mana?

Finale of Glory ---> Secure the Wastes : Finale of Glory needs a 12 mana investment to really go off, but I think given how much ramp I have it might be possible. Would it be worth it to lose out a bunch of late game beaters in exchange for an army of 1/1's I can drop at the end of my opponent's turn?

Sigarda, Heron's Grace ---> Herald of War : Sigarda is mostly there because it is a financially safe and efficient beater. It's also there because I really like Innistrad. Would it make more sense to cut it in favor of a slightly less powerful, but overall more impactful tribal component?

I also have a Shalai, Voice of Plenty deck. I am on the fence about including Starnheim Aspirant , but I don't see a lot of other decks running it. Seems good--might be able to help cast more than one angel per turn, and cast those Flash angels easier. Its Human subtype synergizes too with cards like Herald of War . How would you evaluate it for a deck like this?

Intro

  • Hm it doesnt seem to have a consistent plan nor a legit format. I would suggest to go for modern since it has a lot of cards in its pool and is the most common 60 cards format besides standard. I am an Angels Deck builder since 6 years, so i have a couple of suggestions. Of course that doesnt mean that you have to change something, i mean it is just a suggestion and all the mentioned cards wont fit anyway in a 60 cards deck. Try to make it more consistent if needed by playing 4-of or tutor effects.

  • Since you mentioned your friend plays burn, i will give you some cards that will make your winrate nearly 100% against burn. Burn has barely no chance against lifegain decks. Angels can be build in a lifegain way, which i am personally no fan of but many are, so here we go.

  • If you want to check out a non lifegain modern Angel deck, you can check out Devotion to White Angels.
