Latest Decks as Commander
Segovian Angel Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, nice start, mono white can be tricky to build and play in Commander. You have Avacyn, Angel of Hope, make her the Commander? This is Angel tribal, but using Elesh Norn as Commander is strange...
No matter the Commander with Angel tribal Angels take up most, if not all, the high CMC spots in the deck because the best Angels have high CMCs. My advice is cut the majority of the other nonAngel high CMC (5 CMC or higher) cards. Ramp and Angels should be priority.
Cards to consider cutting right away because they're not as good as other cards or are redundancy you don't need:
- Beacon of Immortality
- Parhelion II
- Akroma, Angel of Wrath
- Bruna, the Fading Light
- Mass Calcify
- Serra's Guardian
- Seraph of the Sword
- Segovian Angel
- Curse of Exhaustion
- Moonsilver Spear
- Answered Prayers
- Serra Avenger
- Angelic Chorus
- Ajani, Wise Counselor
- Guardian of the Gateless
- Angelic Skirmisher
- Rhox Faithmender
- Vanquisher's Banner
This is 20 cards that doing a quick look over are subpar compared to the rest. The next 10 cards are cut to streamline by choosing the most important cards at different CMCs and cutting the others. Cards to consider cutting:
- Resolute Archangel
- Angel of Vitality
- Gisela, the Broken Blade
- Blinding Angel
- Linvala, the Preserver
- Platinum Angel
- Serra the Benevolent
- Cleansing Nova
- Angelic Accord
- Treasure Map Flip
The last four cards is where it gets difficult to make cuts, but continue to streamline:
Hopefully this info helps and I offer more advice especially if you change to Avacyn, Angel of Hope as Commander since there's several good interactions to take advantage of.
Good luck with your deck.

I’m not a fan of Banehound. Yes, Banehound has Lifelink and Haste, which are good keywords. However, Banehound doesn’t do that much. I don’t want to see this card early because it is just a 1/1. Serra Ascendant is just better at for attacking on the ground, Healer's Hawk is better for attacking due to flying, and Segovian Angel is better if I’m defending. If I just want Banehound to be in the graveyard, Leyline Prowler is useful both on the field and in the graveyard. Arcane Signet is good, but isn’t the want the deck wants. Mana dorks for mana acceleration, trigger ETB effects such as Aura Shards, and sacrificing for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. As for Swiftfoot Boots and Shalai, Voice of Plenty, these two cards provide a Hexproof option if Kathril isn’t allowed to come into play. In my meta, the “play Kathril and beat face’’ plan might occur uncontested maybe twice before they understand the deck’s strategy. Therefore, I like having other sources of Hexproof. Also, Shalai protects my creatures and myself.
You are correct about Questing Beast.

I'd probably switch out one Serra Ascendant and Brought Back for 3 Segovian Angels. Just because Brought Back has to be that turn which makes it very situational, whereas Segovian Angel is good no matter when.
Also your mana is a quite low considering how expensive most of your cards are, and the fact that you have spenders like Dawn of Hope, I'd aim to get at least 20 probably more like 22. Or run some Aether Vials. Not a bad little deck though!

Great Bird of the Forest
Creature - Bird
Flying, Trample, Haste
I'd like another Gigantic creature for Ikoria, but like a traditionally tiny creature, opposite of Segovian Angel

so, after rigorous playtesting, I have come up with some cards to cut and add that will hopefully msk the deck better:
Alabaster Kirin This does absolutely nothing, has no prison effects, and is kinda useless here
Baird, Steward of Argive His prison effect is okay, but you can definitely slot in better options for not too much more money
Knight of Sursi Once again, just a vanilla card that doesn't do anything except get a small body on the battlefield, which isnt very good in commander, even if it is indestructible
Misthoof Kirin Only really okay in a morph deck, this is kinda useless here
Segovian Angel a 1/1 with vigilance has to swing 120 times to win. just a terrible card all around.
Silver Knight Kinda bad, doesn't really do much .
Shepherd of the Lost this would be good if it have every other creature it's abilities, but alas, it's kinda terrible, especially because I'm smelling a voltron sub-theme around Avacyn
White Knight Unless your in a very black heavy meta, this is just bad, and is barley passable even if you have said meta
All your lands except basic plains. You need more utility lands, not just non-basics that do nothing
Wing Shards This one is debatable, although I don't see you casting a bunch of spells and having the mana to cast this, due to the lack of ramp you have.
Armillary Sphere bad ramp
Traveler's Amulet bad ramp
Orazca Relic have fun waiting 5 turns to get blessing and then only drawing one card
Take Vengeance crappy removal
Bishop of Wings I don't see this deck supporting an angel tribal
all the Moxen, while expensive, they are amazing and can let you ramp to Avacyn as soon as turn 3
Sol Ring amazing ramp
Thran Dynamo amazing ramp
Commander's Sphere great ramp
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben super good stax/prison
Sphere of Safety typically opponents will have to pay 3-4 for each attacking creature. brutal
Sword of Fire and Ice really good equipment that deals with the two most problematic colors to this deck, however it's very expensive.
Path to Exile great removal
Blazing Archon if you're playing prison with Avacyn out, you basically can't lose
Windborn Muse STAXXXXX
Pacifism good removal
Norn's Annex great way to both deter your opponents and punish them for attacking you
Smothering Tithe you will be generating a TON of mana
Crawlspace amazing pillow fort card
Archangel of Tithes amazing pillow fort, and has the flavor bonus of being an angel
Felidar Sovereign you will probably always have 40 or more life, especially with all the stax you're throwing around, so easy wincon
Approach of the Second Sun another great wincon
Aegis of the Gods great for not getting burned out
Generous Gift awesome removal
Teferi's Protection because teferi's protection
Elixir of Immortality amazing card to clutch up with
Thought Vessel good ability plus some ramp
Homeward Path great land
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx always great in a mono colored deck. Even better with Avacyn's triple-cost
Maze of Ith great utility land
Tectonic Edge great land destruction
Field of Ruin great land destruction
Thanks so much for reading my list, and I hope this has been some help to you. My main problem with this deck was it ran too much inefficient removal and bad creatures, but once these are added in, I think the deck should be a lot for mean. Have a great day! =)

No offense to SynergyBuild or yourself, but this sort of Favorable Winds deck with a lower average cmc is closer to what you'd see in a competitive setting. I haven't updated it in a while and a few cards in it have spiked in price (namely Smuggler's Copter and Spell Queller ), so if you want to save some money I suggest cutting the Copters and Quellers for more Faerie Guidemother / Healer's Hawk / Segovian Angel . Also, depending on how far into the theme you want to get, you could replace the tax creatures ( Mausoleum Wanderer and Judge's Familiar ) with more faeries like Faerie Miscreant .
If you want to take it even further, you could cut most of the non creature cards ( Curious Obsession , Favorable Winds ) to play more Sephara, Sky's Blade and Spellstutter Sprite since they're very good payoffs for having flyers/faeries and are closer to the theme than the enchantments are. The deck will be slower and a bit underpowered without the anthems, though.
