I love your deck and have been using it as a template as my regular deck for random pub games. While it performed pretty well without any upgrades, I found it ran out of steam mid to late game after I get blown out by a board wipe. After a game or 2, players would usually exile Giada the moment it hits the board, slowing down our ramp signifcantly. Also, if we miss a land drop mid-game, we're basically stuck waiting for a good draw. I realized that building an early oppressive board state begs for a board wipe when everyone else is still building but it sets us back significantly. With that in mind, I cut a lot of the lower CMC angels and built more towards value/recursion. Based on your comments it seems that this deck is more budget focused but since I'm making this my main, I've decided on pulling the best cards from other decks for some spicy upgrades. Let me know what you think below (sorry for the wall of text):

Mana Crypt - What's better than a Sol Ring? A free Sol Ring. Life loss is not concerning.

Mox Amber - With Giada on our board turn 2, this is like an additional land drop.

Mox Opal - I'm currently running 19 artifacts so hitting metalcraft isn't hard.

Land Tax - This card is just straight up good in mono-white. Not so much for never missing a land drop but also so we don't draw into lands on later turns.

Archaeomancer's Map - This one isn't as good as Land Tax but it can help us keep pace with Green ramp and drop the tapped lands on opponent's turns when we can't use them efficiently.

Smothering Tithe - I've played this card in 2 other decks and it's always been great. It usually pays for itself by the time it comes back to you and if not removed can add plenty of mana over the course of the game.

Smuggler's Share - I have mixed feelings about this card. The smarter opponents will play around it, but should still give us some card advantage overall.

Sensei's Divining Top - Helps keep tempo in the game for the cost of 1.

Scroll Rack - Wheeling away a mediocre hand for 1 is strong. Particularly good with Land Tax or Windbrisk Heights.

Lotus Field - I loved Lost Vale so much I wanted another one, especially when someone blew it up.

Flagstones of Trokair - Comboes with Lotus Field.

Thespian's Stage - Copy Lotus Field or Lost Vale.

Vesuva - Copy Lost Vale or Flagstones of Trokair or Myriad Landscape.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Value with a strong board presence.

Ancient Tomb - Helps with the artifacts and equip costs, life loss is not a concern in this deck.

Cavern of Souls - I hate when blue counters our big angels, so this stops it.

All the fetch lands - Arid Mesa, Fabled Passage, Flooded Strand, Marsh Flats, Prismatic Vista, Windswept Heath. This reduces our number of basic Plains to 11-12 but I haven't had issues with it yet so far as long as we have access to colored mana in my starting hand.

Enlightened Tutor - I swapped out Search for Glory as it can hit my rocks early game or stronger equipments mid-game.

Stoneforge Mystic - Amazing with Sword of Hearth and Home. Keep blinking it and grab the rest of your equipment package for free. Second target would usually be Lightning Greaves just to get some protection on the board or make some hasty angels.

Weathered Wayfarer - Comboes well with the newly added lands. Fetching Lotus Field helps guarantee activation while keeping pace with the ramp.

Recruiter of the Guard - Prime targets would be Stoneforge or Wayfarer but can also hit Starnheim Aspirant or Karmic Guide. Also gets the cost reduction from Herald of War which is nice.

Pyre of Heroes - While Search for Glory can fetch some of our legendary creatures, I prefer getting them straight onto the battlefield. I wouldn't use it on the lower cmc Angels, which I mostly pulled out, but on the higher cost ones to cheat out big angels. The dream is to target the one-off 5 cost angels like Karmic Guide or Sigarda's Vanguard to pull Sanctuary Warden for the card draw into Emeria Shepherd for the recursion or Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld to bring out Brisela, Voice of Nightmares  Meld  Meld

Sword of Feast and Famine - This card is probably the best addition to the deck so far. Having the pro green & black which are both popular colors in Commander usually lets us have a free target. The resource denial isn't super relevant but getting an extra untap for lands is super strong. It's even better if we drop a tapped land before attacks and getting all that value on second main phase. It does draw a lot of hate, but even getting 2 swings off is well worth it. We can also recur it with Serra Paragon or Emeria Shepherd.

Sword of Fire and Ice - I haven't added this one in yet but I think it's a strict upgrade over Rogue's Gloves. Getting the pro blue/red and pinging things off the board is just so much more value for the extra 1 cost.

Lightning Greaves - Short of board wipes, single target removal is the bane of this deck. I usually voltron Giada with all my equips and let the other angels synergize the board.

Angel of Destiny - Needed an alt-win con option and this can provide a way out to knock out combo players. The double strike is also relevant as most of our equipments are based on combat damage so we get 2 triggers.

Emeria Shepherd - Especially strong recursion with fetches. Dropping this on the right turn with a fetch in hand can be game ending.

Serra Paragon - Doubles as a Crucible of Worlds and can grab our swords back when destroyed, and it's an angel to boot. Definitely an auto-include.

Steel Seraph - Haven't playtested this one yet but I like that it's a 3 drop with relevant abilities. The dream is to cheat out Emeria Shepherd with Pyre of Heroes as a turn 3-4 play.

Interesting take on Shrines and Gods.

I took a different approach for this. Maybe you can take sone inspiration.


You better worship! Meet the Gods on Shrines!

As for Manalith… aren‘t Arcane Signet or Altar of the Pantheon straight upgrades?

Mox Amber or Faeburrow Elder would fit perfectly, too.

SufferFromEDHD on Niambi Legendary Reanimator

1 month ago

Been meaning to build Niambi all year but I keep getting distracted by other commanders. I really like your take on Azorius reanimator. Death or Glory is a pet card of mine and it really shines in this build. I also like how you snuck in the legendary sorceries to feed to Niambi. However, I'm confused by the lack of legendary artifacts!

Helm of the Host seems prime for abuse in this list.

Mox Amber suddenly pricey but very appropriate in this list.

Sword of the Animist ramp value. Cut Burnished Hart

The Immortal Sun your list is low on planeswalkers so this is powerful value.

Umezawa's Jitte swiss army knife.

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds an island that you can feed to Niambi in the late game.

Academy Ruins low on artifacts but worth it.

Hall of Heliod's Generosity really low on enchantments but probably worth it.

Conjurer's Closet/Teleportation Circle the etb effects in this list are worth recycling over and over.

Hey, you can add these spells : Culling the Weak ; Jeska's Will to accelerate your mana, and all tutors : Scheming Symmetry ; Wishclaw Talisman ; Tinker ; Diabolic Intent ; Imperial Seal ; Gamble ; Grim Tutor ; Personal Tutor ; Planar Bridge ; Demonic Consultation ; Tainted Pact (with the combo Thassa's Oracle if don't play a lot of lands), you can add Divining Witch same thing, and the master piece for these tutors is Laboratory Maniac. Nowday there is a lot of mana rock : Arcane Signet ; Mox Amber ; Thran Dynamo ; Thought Vessel

TheWiseDragon43 on Five Color Planeswalkers

SufferFromEDHD thanks for the suggestions! Unfortunately Mox Amber and The Chain Veil are both quite far out of my price range, as are Luxior, Giada's Gift and Norn's Annex to a lesser extent. I’ll definitely consider Honor-Worn Shaku and Rings of Brighthearth though.

Honor-Worn Shaku turns planeswalkers into mana rocks

Luxior, Giada's Gift turns planeswalkers into dudes

Mox Amber possibly in place of BoP

Norn's Annex the best pillow fort effect for the theme

Rings of Brighthearth double loyalty triggers

The Chain Veil double loyalty triggers

legendofa on Yorion & Meathook Massacre banned

1 month ago

Delve has three bans out of 27, but Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise both have bans in multiple formats.

Of the ten black-bordered Moxen, only Mox Amber, Mox Diamond, and Mox Tantalite aren't banned anywhere. This group includes five of the Power Nine. Is "cheap artifact mana" a mechanic?

ash_whi - You might also consider Mox Amber. Hopefully that has some potential with this deck!
