Avenging Angel < The instances where you would want to "top" lock yourself to know that you'll draw a generic 3/3 flying angel for 5cmc are few and far between.

Dawning Angel < Minimal lifegain doesn't seem worthwhile for the cost.

Feather, the Redeemed < You don't really have anything that targets your own creatures to be able to recur the spells, so it's just an efficient cmc angel, but otherwise irrelevant.

Firemane Angel < Too expensive both on the recursion ability and for it's stats and conditional lifegain.

Ghirapur Orrery < May benefit your opponents too much.

Great Furnace < Reflecting Pool or any other land.

Lotus Petal < One and done effect without a way to copy or recur it seems lackluster.

Pristine Angel < likely to be an untargetable/unblockable body, but no utility.

Rending Volley < Just have this be Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares .

Segovian Angel < Flavorful, but it's simply bad.

Serra Angel < could be something more impactful like Baneslayer Angel for the cost.

Sigarda, Heron's Grace < This should just be Sigarda, Host of Herons .

Stoneforge Masterwork < Win More card. Better in decks that go wide for a bigger pump. Unlikely to be very relevant when it's a +3/+3 pump. A bigger pump means you're likely already winning.

Sustainer of the Realm < could be Angelic Field Marshal for the cost.

Sword of Body and Mind < Doesn't advance your gameplan in any way, random color protection. A wolf token and milling an opponent doesn't help you much.

I am not fond of aeon engine, because reversing turn order is not a very useful effect, and can be abused to prevent a player from taking a turn; such effects should have been kept in un-sets, in my mind.

However, that new version of Chainer is quire awesome; is he the fourth character from the Weatherlight saga to be given a new card? I hope not, since he lived long after that story was over. The fact that the creatures that he reanimates do not become nightmares is a flavor fail, unfortunately. I now wonder if there shall be a new version of Braids in the future, or perhaps a card of Chainer’s mentor, Skellum?

Bloodthirsty blade is a very unique and interesting design, and does anyone here think that that is Gerrard in the artwork, when he and Urza were forced to fight each other?

The reprint of Geth is nice, since he has become expensive, recently.

That new demon is quite awesome, as it is essentially a second Phyrexian Obliterator for this format; its mana cost is rather high, but the fact that it has madness helps to balance that.

At this point, reprints of Akroma's Memorial and Vedalken Orrery are highly unlikely, but a reprint of Overabundance would be very awesome, indeed, and would perfectly fit the red/white/green deck.

Skyfire phoenix is a very nice card, and I especially appreciate the artwork; does it remind anyone here of the Firebird segment of Disney’s Fantasia 2000?

Yes, there is a new version of Greven! I especially like how his artwork is a dark parallel to the artwork in the new version Gerrard, although I do not remember if the two of them ever fight (although I still am reading Prophecy, and have not yet reached the Invasion cycle in the novels).

That reprint of Soul Foundry is great; it was not terribly expensive, but it still was long overdue for a reprint, in my mind; since I started playing this game in 2003, when I was still in high school, I have many fond memories (and some not-so-fond) of that card.

The reprint of Pristine Angel is also nice, but I do wish that she had been given new art for it. I actually am surprised that WotC did not reprint Luminous Angel , because she would have been perfect for the populate deck.

Mire in misery is definitely a bend for black, but at least it does not outright destroy enchantments.

BMHKain on Does Pristine Angel allow Protection ...

Just answered it. I wonder what else I've been missing on from awhile back. Thankfully though; Pristine Angel + Concerted Effort combo was since removed for such reasons BTW. Didn't think Colors are the only quality that mattered...

@landofMordor: Removed Lose the Game effects, Sundial of the Infinite, & Platinum Angel all for the sake of such cards.

Other things removed:,Browbeat, Risk Factor, not the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Combo as it locks down nearly all staples of cEDH for being "CMC3 Danger Zone". Same for Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel as my stuff that wrecks fields has immunity towards such cards' Color Identity. Same applies for Odric, Lunarch Marshal even though Sky Terror & Swiftblade Vindicator are removed. Possibly adding them back... Still trying on Damage Doubling as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is, basically this.

Working on Sunforger Package, though I do have a purpose for Isochron Scepter yet. Fork, for Instant/Sorcery Doubling.

This is what I got so far; also added Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Flameshadow Conjuring, & Splinter Twin.

Question: Are the following cards good?

Ring of Three Wishes (Stuff like Ancestral Statue & Felidar Guardian can pull off a Genie Exploit.)

Planar Bridge (Hefty cost to search for Permanents, but can put them in play right away. Plus, I already have infinite mana combos to boot.)

Mangara's Tome (Not sure if drawing a card at the start of a turn is a replacement effect, but if not, this can give you all 5 cards easy. I don't think this gets sacced after that, so flickering this again would mean potentially, I can play my deck.)

Citanul Flute (Why I have a lot of fat in the first place. I can net both parts of the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares meld, & play them both on the same turn. (Gisela, the Broken Blade is CMC4, & Bruna, the Fading Light is CMC7...) Then hell will be given.)

Your thoughts on these? I'll continue cutting from here. Just got to 100% Competitive though; even though it seems like a hopeless lie...

And aside from Neotrup's answer, your other facts seem correct. As long as you're using Pristine Angel and Concerted Effort, you're best off skipping auras and equipment.

Kogarashi on What happens if Pristine Angel, ...

And in fact that will happen with any auras you control that grant protection from their own color, such as Flickering Ward or Floating Shield (if you choose white). While these auras contain clauses or rulings that specify that they don't cause themselves to fall off if you choose white, if the enchanted creature gains protection from white in any other way, including Concerted Effort duplicating the protection from white from those auras, they will fall off as a state-based action because the "this effect doesn't cause this enchantment to fall off" clause is not copied over, same as with Pristine Angel's "must be untapped" clause.

This also applies to Spectra Ward. Even though it doesn't cause any auras already on a creature to fall off, you can't add new ones afterward, and Concerted Effort will give the enchanted creature another instance of "protection from all colors," which will make Spectra Ward fall off.

In short, Concerted Effort is basically a non-bo with many protection-granting auras.

Kogarashi on What happens if Pristine Angel, ...

With the listed cards, your creatures will get flying and protection from all colors and artifacts from Pristine Angel, and protection from colors of permanents you control from Empty-Shrine Kannushi/Pledge of Loyalty (which is redundant with Pristine Angel's "all colors").

Colorless is not a color, so your creatures won't get protection from colorless things. However Pristine Angel will give your creatures protection from artifacts, regardless of whether or not those artifacts are colored.

None of the listed cards will grant protection from any creature types, any card types other than artifacts, or specifically "multicolor," but the protection from all colors will cover multicolored creatures.

None of the listed cards will grant this to you. The only cards I can find in Boros that give you protection of any sort are Runed Halo (specifically named card) and Teferi's Protection (only until your next turn).

Additionally, be aware that using Pristine Angel with Concerted Effort will mean that any auras (other than colorless ones, if they exist) and equipment will "fall off" of your creatures due to the protection.
