Mangara, the Diplomat Discussion

smackjack on The Machine (The Pit of Despair)

Nice list! Im building her as well, and i like Magus of the Moat (or Moat if you can) in my list since im mostly attacking with fliers. Well of Lost Dreams is also pretty nice allowing you to draw 5 when swinging with Liesa. Mangara, the Diplomat is another nice source of card advantage. Resolute Archangel can be really good late game and Helm of the Host multiplies the pain from Liesa, altho its quite an mana investment..

Things I like


Probably not...

I've played a small set of games with the deck now. It had impact on the game. Majority of creatures cast in the deck didn't feel of consequence when standing alone. I'm investigating more ways to gain life but also add "target player gains life" to abuse Tainted Remedy against non-life gain decks that just ignore it when it hits the field. Spells like Swords to Plowshares.

MagicMarc Agree. I find it confusing that Mangara, the Diplomat and Keeper of the Accord got so much attention and this one is flying under the radar.

I haven't see a card slept on this hard since Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger were printed.

1 card per cycle with no additional upside would be a new white staple...

Mangara, the Diplomat is a white staple and it isn't a guaranteed card draw per turn and it is substantially more vulnerable permanent.

Outpost Siege sees considerable play and it is an impulse, not even a draw.

There are some deck building considerations with this, obviously. But if it your deck's goal to dominate combat either by superior force or through control, especially if your deck values haste for the token. Then this is a great card.

You should run 10 card draw spells per deck list. For most, I certainly can't think of 10 other spells that I'd rather run over this in white 2 color combinations. Even in white/blue there are certain strategies where I would run this as one of my 10 card draw spells.

If you're looking for both more card draw and a quasi-stax piece, Alms Collector is a card I'm fond of in white for commander, and would work well in this list, I think. Also Mangara, the Diplomat, of course, is always one of the more powerful white card draw effects for commander, and is actually easier to generate value from than he may seem at first glance, in my experience. You may want to consider replacing Arcane Encyclopedia with one of those two. Neat deck, good luck with it in the future!

Added clerics Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Mangara, the Diplomat, and Bygone Bishop.

Added removal spells Despark and Dire Tactics (most of the clerics in the deck are humans).

Added ramp spell Talisman of Hierarchy.

I'll see what of the other suggested cards I can scrounge up (a lot of them are pretty pricey).

Willing to take any further suggestions!
