There are so many combos that do this with Luminous Broodmoth and Solemnity. Basically anything that's a 0/0 that enters with x +1/+1 counters on it like Hydras like Feral Hydra. Just make x equal 0 because you can

kirbysan Housegheist Just found time to release the update where I briefly go over these. Curse of the Restless Dead makes tokens too slowly. While ideally it can make a bunch in one turn with fetchlands + Second Sunrise, that's too specific of a situation. Mostly, it'll be making 1-2 tokens per turn, which isn't ideal as a non-death-trigger.

I don't think geistcatcher compares favorably to Nightmare Shepherd or Luminous Broodmoth. Its a one-time effect instead of providing repeated value every time like shepherd or broodmoth. This means its potential is a lot lower.

Also Prowling Geistcatcher could double your board state with a sac outlet similar to Nightmare Shepherd or Luminous Broodmoth.

kirbysan I'm confident The Meathook Massacre will find a place in the deck. The lifegain triggering off opponents' creatures is incredibly strong with boardwipes, and it also seconds as a boardwipe. It won't take the spot of any of our current wipes, acting more as an additional Blood Artist, but the fact that it can be used as a wipe ups our control potential. Not sure what the best cut is, but it's certainly stronger than a few current cards in the list. I just wish it were a creature so it could proc off itself and we could fetch it with creature tutors, but at least enchantments are hard to kill.

I think you're right that Dreadhound is too expensive. Similar to Syr Konrad, the Grim, we achieve this effect by cheaper means via Blood Artist and friends, and we don't gain much from additional procs off mill.

One card I've been keeping an eye on is Adeline, Resplendent Cathar. As long as we have a piece of fodder to attack with each turn, she's pumping out 3+ tokens every turn. On a similar level to Ophiomancer, 3+ tokens on our turn every round is as good as it gets, especially since it can proc as soon as she comes town. She's also quite big for a 3 mana creature, making her hard to kill and a strong attacker early game to consistently proc her own effect. The only unfortunate thing is that the tokens have to attack, and we have to attack to create them, meaning we can't sit on them while we build our board. However, she still does a great impression of Elspeth, Sun's Champion at 3 mana.

Eloniel We're always happy to play more aggressively costed drainers, especially one with additional versatility. I find Falkenrath Noble and Vindictive Vampire are too expensive. Our 4 mana options usually do more, like Luminous Broodmoth or Elenda, the Dusk Rose providing exponential value. I could see us playing as many as 7 good 2-3 mana drainers, as I always find myself wanting more in-game.

unstable_anomaly on Blood Bending - Awaken the Avatar

Absolutely love it. +1 for the name alone, but solid build all around. If I could give +2 for your choice of basic lands I would. You've definitely inspired me to try and build my own version of Awaken the Blood Avatar .

Quick question though... do you rely mostly on sacrificing your tokens in order to reduce the casting cost of Awaken the Blood Avatar , or do you sac your regular creatures as well? I'm curious because I thought cards with afterlife might be good here. Doomed Traveler / Garrison Cat / Hunted Witness and Ministrant of Obligation just to name a few (there are many, many more in these colors. Theses would all pair really well with two cards you're already running Anointed Procession / Teysa Karlov .

Regardless of whether or not you decide to use those you could add Agadeem's Awakening  Flip / Rally the Ancestors or Wake the Dead for some pretty explosive turns. Luminous Broodmoth would be really good here as well.

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.

Hello. I have been studying Blink Brago Control for few weeks and I have to tell that I probably have found my place in MTG - I need to build this deck. The job that you had done is so good.. I'm gonna create my deck based on yours. Why ? Because your deck is IMO lacking some essential cards and OFC an UPDATE. Yep... you really need an update. Im casual player, any feedback is very appreciated. So I encourage everybody who is reading this to a discussion.

card draw / card selection

Rhystic Study - Every blue commander should play this, why don't we try - gives consistent draw to get more cards..

Mystic Remora - more draw..

Esper Sentinel - kinda new card in magic - gets consistent draw

Teferi, Master of Time - perfect for multiplayer commander and also 1v1 - +1 in opponents' turns. Discard helps to cast Delve ability or to play Snapcaster Mage - its fine I think.

Dig Through Time - Powerful because of delve.

Search for Azcanta  Flip - enables delve cards and lets to search graveyard for more options. There are some payoffs like Snapcaster Mage , Sun Titan and more.

Blink

Luminous Broodmoth - Mass removal - even more profit! more blinking!

Soulherder - Every blink deck, please. This enables to get more blinking triggers and payoffs at the same time.

Ghostway && Eerie Interlude - Why not ?

removal

Time Wipe - powerful mass removal spell, despite Supreme Verdict or Wrath of God :)

Disallow - extended counterspell...

Trickbind - counter triggers sometimes are gold worth.

Dovin's Veto - One of the most powerful counterspells in magic. Guesss what. It's Azorius colors ;)

Path to Exile - classic

protection

Lightning Greaves - protect commander

Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate - lets sacrifice it anytime we need...

mana

Thran Dynamo - IMO really underappreciated mana base card.

updates

Phantasmal Image - worse version (but only ... ) of Clever Impersonator

Snapcaster Mage - also seems like you are missign something... Play mass removal or counterspell, or anything discarded even by Teferi, Master of Time

Teferi, Master of Time - Isn't this a must-play in an BW deck now?

Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Isn't it too much mana?

Just wanted to say that Selfless Savior is a strictly better Resolute Watchdog.

Also, while he's neither a cat nor a dog, Luminous Broodmoth provides a layer of protection to all your non-token creatures with the potential of retriggering Rin and Seri's ability when said creatures die.
