You have very little synergy between Emmara, Soul of the Accord and the rest of the deck as you play only 5 Convoke spells and most of your attackers fly.

Knight of Autumn is a good card in a lot of situations, but I don't think it's something that belongs in your mainboard as it doesn't really contribute to the Angels plan.

Trostani Discordant is best in a go-wide strategy where what you really want to do is beat down with a handful of powerful angels, I'm not sure she's really what you want to be going for.

Instead, I'd try cutting them and play some more lands (maybe 2 Plains and 2 Castle Ardenvale ) and a few Bishop of Wings . Angel of Vitality  could also work as a cheap 4/4 in most situations and it makes it a lot easier to hit that 5 lifegain to trigger Resplendent Angel .

Angel of Grace is also a pretty good card if you can get it down at a crucial time to save yourself, and the lifegain later can be relevant too.

If you're looking for Angels in the early game, Angelic Page , Segovian Angel , Serra Avenger , Resplendent Angel and Angel of Vitality .

I would look into Vitality first, as she's a cheap creature that starts as a 4/4 in the early game before your life total goes below 25, then gets bigger once you recover. Segovian is a bulk common, and is just hilarious. Serra Avenger is powerful, but comes with a built-in limitation where you can't play it when you need it the most. And Resplendent Angel can make more angels as your lifegain starts up.

And good luck with the rest of your league!

Bitter Angel

Creature - Angel (mythic rare)


At the beginning of each end step, create a black X/X angel creature token with flying, where X is the amount of life you paid this turn.

, pay 3 life: Bitter Angel gets +3/+3 and gains lifelink until end of turn.

"Sins unforgiven lead to vengeance exacted by my kin."

3 / 3

Inspired by Resplendent Angel , I wanted to create its opposite (I also like Font of Agonies and wanted more synergy that way).

Let's have a card that creates beefy creature tokens. Tokens 3/3 or bigger. You pick the color, creature type, and card type (sorcery, instant, artifact...)

Hey there ExtraEasy,

Thanks for your comment and compliment. I'm getting pulled to red due to the good boardwipes ( Deafening Clarion ) I might have in my sideboard, as well as a good 4-drop Angel. I am considering dropping Red, but it'll come down to how useful it is in the sideboard.

Thanks again,


Hey there 9-lives,

Thanks for your comment. I considered Oketra's Monument when the deck was originally just Red-White. However, I decided to add Green for Dromoka's Command , more effective ramp, and Once Upon a Time . I don't think that Oketra's Monument is objectively better than my current ramp choices, as it costs one more, and without T1 Llanowar, then I'm forced to use T3 playing a ramp card instead of playing a Resplendent Angel or Angel of Vitality .

Thanks again,

Crested Sunmare is an auto-include in any Oloro deck. Such a good card.

If you're looking to have a fairly interactive deck with Oloro at the helm, I recommend any creature that does things when you gain life. Oloro naturally pushes you in the direction of control, which is fine for some, but I think something more along the lines of midrange is more fun for a newer player as I have found from personal experience. Archangel of Thune , Angel of Vitality , Serra Avatar , Drogskol Reaver , and Resplendent Angel are all great examples of these types of cards. Karlov of the Ghost Council is also an amazing card that is easily abused in Oloro.

If you're looking for more lifegain and drain stuff, Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a really good one, as is Vizkopa Guildmage , Suture Priest , Twilight Prophet , and Exsanguinate .

I can't really think of anything else off the top of my head but from one Oloro player to another, I hope you have fun.

The only modern competitive lifegain deck I know is soul sisters.

Soul Sisters - MTGgoldfish

I've also seen versions splashing green for Soul Warden and other versions splashing black for Blood Artist in conjuction with Forbidden Orchard .

A more janky idea that i thought of but didn't persue much is Ghirapur Orrery + Bottled Cloister + Venser's Journal and/or Ivory Crane Netsuke .

For the deck as is i would up the Resplendent Angel count since one of your best curves is Bishop of Wings into Resplendent Angel .
