zapyourtumor on Ang-Hellic

I'd lower the curve a bit if you want the deck to be more competitive. If you want to keep Brisela in for the fun that's obviously your choice, but the chances of you getting her on the battlefield are pretty slim.

I 100% think you should move the 4 Youthful Valkyries from the maybeboard to the mainboard.

Sensei's Divining Top is not legal in modern (or legacy for that matter).

I'd probably run more Path to Exile, or maybe a couple Fatal Push over some of the other more expensive removal spells you have.

Resplendent Marshal may be worth considering, since it buffs all your angels and also gives a ton of value even if it gets removed.

Segovian Angel is obviously nothing fancy, but you don't have many proactive turn 1 plays.

Serra Avenger could be funny if you go for 3-4 Aether Vial, else probably not worth including.

Not sure if Angelic Curator is worth it as a sideboard card against artifacts, but it is pretty funny. Heliod's Intervention or Kataki, War's Wage might just be more direct though.

Linvala is pretty garbage in the current meta but always a sideboard card to keep your eye on. Currently the only deck she's good against is Yawg.

I would cut the number of lands in your deck to around ~33 to ~35. You can substitute these with enchantments like Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth, and Carpet of Flowers.

Additionally, you specifically ask for "controlling enchantments". I myself run a Sythis, Harvest's Hand deck that is based on shutting the entire board down, so you can check my deck for inspiration. I run stuff like Suppression Field, Stony Silence, Root Maze, Ground Seal, and other cards like Kataki, War's Wage, Null Rod, Collector Ouphe, and Linvala, Keeper of Silence. My deck wins through locking my opponents by preventing them from being able to play/use lands with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Living Plane.

If you need any other help, feel free to ask.

If you're looking for help making cuts, the first step I would take is to look at your symmetrical stax pieces and see which ones hurt you the most:

Deafening Silence, Grafdigger's Cage, Containment Priest, Ethersworn Canonist, Hushbringer, Kataki, War's Wage, Leonin Arbiter, Rest in Peace, Sphere of Resistance, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Trinisphere, Sanctum Prelate, Rule of Law, Thorn of Amethyst, whew I think that's all.

Of these, you want to look at the ones which most hamper what you want to do, or have negative synergies with other cards you run. You have a few cards that say "draw", so Spirit of the Labyrinth is IMO the very first cut you should make.

Another negative synergy I saw is Hushbringer and Authority of the Consuls. I like Authority a lot better since it synergizes with Heliod.

The next ones I'd cut could take one of two routes: so, I'm thinking of cards like Ethersworn Canonist and Sphere of Resistance. These kind of innately have negative synergy - if people are paying more for spells, they're less likely to be able to cast multiple spells in the first place, meaning the Canonist's ability is wasted. You should consider going for one type of effect or the other, not both. (I wouldn't run either symmetrically in mono-white, personally).

Council's Judgment can probably be cut - you have great enough removal without running it.

kataki definitely needs to go with how many artifacts you're running.

Kataki, War's Wage would be a good addition with the small amount of artifacts you run.

I'm also fond of layers on layers of protection for myself and my board when I'm playing hatebears. Teferi's Protection, Flawless Maneuver, Sylvan Safekeeper, Mother of Runes, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, and Luminous Broodmoth for board protection. Windborn Muse, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Solitary Confinement, etc. for personal protection.

Fell the Mighty and Retribution of the Meek are a pair of good boardwipes that'll keep most of your hatebears intact.

I have 2 different hatebear decks (neither contains red though) if you care to take a look for some ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Sisay's Hombres -Hatebears (deeper in hatebears theme) and Added Layers of Protection - Tymna & Sidar (more selective with hatebears w/ loads of protection)

That's fair with Sylvan Library. I run all 9 of the fetches I can along with a few tutors. I shuffle a LOT and this helps me with Sylvan being more selective card draw and digging without being as aggressive by taking 8 just to switch up the topdeck.

I've had pretty good results out of Jared and the monarch mechanic in general. It sucks that you can't become the monarch the turn he enters but once you have it the very next turn, it's easy to hold onto here. He also makes for one hell of a blocker/deterrent for surprise hastey creatures.

I'm with you on Toski/Ohran being my main tutor targets though. I run Imperial Recruiter alongside them for another easy way to Tutor either (or Loyal Apprentice) as well.

Also, have you considered running Kataki, War's Wage? You don't run many artifacts and he's great at taxing and slowing down your opponents.

Marina, Guardian of Nature

Legendary Creature- Elemental Avatar

When Marina, Guardian of nature enters the battlefield destroy target enchantment.

Echantments have “at the beginning of its owners upkeep pay or sacrifice this permanent.”


Been taking a few days to be lazy, and watch a couple animes I’ve been putting off, in preparation of my last final I finished yesterday cementing my last year before graduation as a success.

Create another card that adds an upkeep cost to a permanent type, ideally it should cost 6+. Unlike Kataki, War's Wage who costs 2

Thanks for the question arcarceus. I wouldn't spring for a The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale given the extremely high creature count of our own deck. I typically only play this deck in cEDH or cEDH-adjacent pods and usually find that my own creature count is much higher than my opponents. I do love this type of plan for artifacts, and my low count of artifacts has enabled Kataki, War's Wage to be extremely powerful against the high artifact count of many cEDH decks.

I haven't spared much expense when it comes to this deck, but Living Plane over Nature's Revolt comes to mind immediately. I'm personally not a fan of artifact driven fast mana for reasons unrelated to the power of the strategy, but I certainly believe that the deck would be more powerful with its inclusion. Mana Vault is already included due to its synergy with Derevi, and Grim Monolith would be a similarly powerful inclusion. Additional rocks to include would be Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, and Chrome Mox. If those were added you'd have to take out a couple pieces of artifact hate (the aforementioned Kataki, Null Rod), but I think you'd speed up your average first or second turns which is where this deck can really struggle against your typical cEDH deck.

August 20 FNM, I went 3-1 for 8th place in a field of 73, according to the Companion app. In order: 5C Domain Zoo (2-0); Dredge (2-1); Lantern (2-0); Indomitable Creativity (0-2).

No changes to the main, I think it's great. I don't love the triome but the double-color demands are real.

Changes to side: -2 Kataki, War's Wage, +2 Fracture, because fuck T3feri, and other reasons.
