And here I thought I was the only one who attempted this!! You have clued me in on a load of failings in my list. That said, I can spot a couple in yours as well. Karador, Ghost Chieftain hails from Theros. Lyra Dawnbringer bears the name in the same way as Danitha Capashen, Paragon and is not from Serra's Realm, she is from Dominaria.

My list is missing one legend. Yours is missing over fifty. I'll find out which as I double-check, so

multimedia on Avacyn, Angel of Dope

Hey, nice version of Avacyn, but do you really need all those other Angels?

Smothering Tithe is fantastic repeatable ramp for mono white in multiplayer Commander. Lyra Dawnbringer has very good interaction with Resplendent Angel; repeatable Angels with lifelink. Rather than play lots of other Angels consider more pillowfort? The problem with mono white is you want a lot of turns to get going since Avacyn is eight mana. You want a very good opening hand with ramp, but if you don't get that then having ways to slow your opponents down can help.

Other cards to consider adding:

  • Resolute Archangel

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, your deck doesn't show an official Commander because you didn't add the CMDR tag after the Aureila text in the deck editor.

Aurelia, the Warleader *CMDR*

There's 2x Path to Exile here ;) Command Tower and Battlefield Forge are good Boros lands. Ancient Tomb is helpful when playing high CMC Angels. Ancient Den and Great Furnace are worth adding to help metalcraft of Puresteel. Mistveil Plains and Tithe have great interaction with Sunforger. Mistveil can put the instant you cast with Sunforger back into your library to cast it again and Tithe can be cast by Sunforger to tutor for Mistveil.

Consider expanding on control with more pillowfort, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric? More pillowfort is good with Luminarch Ascension which is one of the best Angel cards, a repeatable source of instant creatures for control. Law/Rhetoric can help slow the game down which is helpful with control and to buy time to cast Angels. Law/Rhetoric is very good with Ascension.

Arcane Signet and Talisman of Conviction are Boros mana rocks. Pearl Medallion can do a lot since the majority of cards and Angels are white. Knight of the White Orchid is nice ramp for Boros and it can search for Mistveil or Foundry.

Emeria Angel doesn't create Angels, but she does create fliers and that's good with control. Getting repeatable value without paying mana is helpful with control. Resplendent Angel, three drop Angel who's very good with Lyra Dawnbringer and another potential repeatable source of Angels that doesn't cost mana.

Good luck with your deck.

Deadpoo111 on When Bolas Is Away, Palladia Will Play

2 months ago

Yup, okay so I'm digging this concept.

So I think the first order of business is exploring the different paths Palladia would take upon being reawakened.

Option 1: Helping Bolas Escape

The Steps: First, she'd have to learn what a planeswalker is, as far as I can tell from the lore, she has not met on nor does she know of their existence (She's been asleep for long time). So she would probably have to meet some more knowledgeable people, perhaps the crew of the Weatherlight battled her? Perhaps she does defeat them and learn the secret from an impressionable you Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, maybe she keeps the weatherlight. After knowing what a planeswalker is, she'd need to learn of Bolas' imprisonment. ATM only three beings know of this, Jace Beleren, Ugin, and Bolas himself. IDK how she'd learn of this but we can get into that detail after she's a planeswalker. Now, she needs to become a planeswalker. In her day, all you had to do to become a planeswalker was gather a ton of mana. Assuming this is post-mending she'd have to be born with a spark, or a spark would have to be given, or perhaps taken. What if a young planeswalker like Teyo, the Shieldmage stumbled upon her path? She could take his spark with the help of her followers, and ascend to be a planeswalker. Additionally, she could use a Planar Portal to traverse the planes. Or maybe she met Tezzeret, who has the planar bridge inside him and struck a deal to travel to another plane, but this is unlikely because Tezzeret has sworn not to serve another dragon. Okay, so Palladia can traverse planes, what next? Now she has to search for info on Bolas and Ugin. This could take centuries, not only are their histories as old as Dominaria but they've both been to so many planes. A possible encounter is with Azor, the Lawbringer on Ixalan where she learns of their plans to trap bolas. She could travel to Ravnica, though this would be hard due to everyone being on watch for planeswalkers. But if she did, she would learn about the war and stuff, and that Bolas might be dead or is thought dead. Now, in order to find where Bolas is, she'd need to find Jace, Idk how she would, he's sort of on and off with Vraska on ravnica as of late and he's a tough cookie to crack, maybe she could hire another mind reader? Either way, she gets the info and now has to find the meditation realm. As of recently, Ugin, Sarkhan, Niv Mizzet, Ashiok, Narset, and Tetsuko Umezawa know of the meditation realm. Of these Sarkhan would provide the best guide, as she could control him again (this seems to be a recurring theme with him). So she finds the realm and stuff but look out now she has to fight Ugin. But wait, what if she fixed The Immortal Sun? Boom Ugin can't escape and now she's fighting him. The point is Ugin needs to lose, but I don't know how Palladia could do that as Ugin is way more experienced than her. Maybe she attains mastery of the meditation realm? There is also, what I think would be the most epic thing ever, where she kills Sarkhan and gives Bolas Sarkhans spark. Bolas kills Ugin and is free. Maybe he kills Palladia right there and then, maybe she somehow kills him? Maybe he becomes her underling, lots of possibilities. So that's that whole destiny right there.

Option 2: Taking over

Palladia wakes up and decides to finally conquer Dominaria. The fractured remnants of the cabal rally behind her. She has a few obstacles though. Shiv won't go down without a fight, especially with Darigaaz defending it, neither will Benalia or Tolaria and then there's the whole Weatherlight crew to deal with. Maybe include Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Squee, the Immortal, Tiana, Ship's Caretaker. Overall, it's a very difficult crusade, include key enemies such as Lyra Dawnbringer and Radha, Heir to Keld. Finally, after a decade-long war, Palladia rules all of Dominaria.

Option 3: Palladia Mors, Ruiner of Planes

Somehow (literally any of the ways I listed in 1) Palladia finds a way to move plane to plane, she takes it upon herself to sow chaos and bloodshed throughout, collecting trinkets of victory as she goes, maybe she takes the Seal of the Guildpact from Ravnica and Obelisk of Alara from Alara. Ooooo maybe Shadowspear if she defeats Elspeth wherever she goes.

That's just a few of the options for her that I could come up with, I personally think #1 could make a good fan fic

Hope you like feedback, this deck looks sweet.

Hey, it's great you're doing this for your daughter, but this is deck is not aggro, not close. It's midrange and honestly it's better that its midrange since aggro is less good in multiplayer Commander and aggro is not what you want with Angels.

Angels are about doing combat damage with flying to your opponents which Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is much better at than Anya, Merciless Angel and you have Gisela. As General Gisela doubles the flying combat damage that Angels do including herself. All Angels you control benefit from Gisela. Gisela can also help with the crack back since damage dealt to you is reduced. Anya is better as part of the 99 than as General.

For starters to upgrade your deck I would get away from aggro and focus more on how you can strengthen the midrange strategy with Angels. Examples of upgrades to improve midrange are cutting Embereth Shieldbreaker for Knight of the White Orchid, cutting Fumiko the Lowblood for Solemn Simulacrum, cutting Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas for Anger.

Cards you could cut:

  • Dwarven Mine
  • Idyllic Grange
  • Phyrexian Soulgorger
  • Embereth Shieldbreaker
  • Fumiko the Lowblood
  • Meteor Blast
  • Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
  • Jareth, Leonine Titan
  • Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
  • Fiendslayer Paladin
  • Tajic, Legion's Edge
  • Desolation Giant
  • Truefire Captain
  • Hunted Dragon
  • Pacifism
  • Razia's Purification
  • Crystal Slipper

Some other cards you could add:

Good luck with your deck.
