Selenia, Dark Angel

Legendary Creature — Angel


Pay 2 life: Return Selenia, Dark Angel to its owner's hand.

Niko9 on Impactful Lifegain to improve black …

I do love a good lifegain deck : ) The one I built a while back is a variation of 60 card soul sisters with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant gaining me life from Lingering Souls or afterlife creatures like Seraph of the Scales or Orzhov Enforcer all to power up a Bloodthirsty Aerialist

Revival / Revenge is a great versatile card, and my favorite lifegain combo is to use Selenia, Dark Angel with Sanguine Bond and Tainted Sigil Selenia is a great flying blocker that your opponent will never actually get rid of, bond is bond : ) and sigil can actually save you in a pinch, but when you put them all together, it's a kill one player combo. Stacking Selenia triggers can be fun when it works : )

But again, I use this in 60 card, so not sure how applicable it is to commander. I also really like Ivory Tower or Sun Droplet just for constant gain effects for Bloodthirsty Aerialist but I'm not sure if it would work in EDH.

Best of luck with the deck! Looks pretty awesome.

AstroAA Yep, Selenia, Dark Angel is just a fun card : ) I enjoy that just the fact that you can stack her trigger and lose more life can be a combo piece. Plus, it's really nice to have a "game over" button in a lifegain deck that can kinda prattle on sometimes.

Still nothing on your combo though : ) The effort to flow cart it legit made me smile. You're awesome!

Ha, that is definitely a convoluted combo, but that kind of makes it so much more awesome : ) And I like that a lot of the pieces are just good cards, so it's not like you are running them just for the combo.

I'm definitely not quite pushing it that far, but I really like a combo of Tainted Sigil+ Sanguine Bond in my Selenia, Dark Angel lifegain deck. If you get both into play, and have more life than an opponent, then Selenia triggers you down to 1 life, gain it back with tainted sigil, and that's a damage bomb headed their way. It almost never works, but I do enjoy that it can work : )

I do like that it's doing something really unique. "pay any amount of life" in particular stands out because that can be such a combo starter. It could do things similar to a Selenia, Dark Angel deck.

Mira+Tainted Sigil+Sanguine Bond would create an extremely cutthroat board state where, because of Mira, you can't attack but the second any of your opponents are dealt damage they are dead. Somebody gets pinged for 1, activate Mira for 39 life, sigil to bring it back, and bond to destroy.

I don't know, just brainstorming a bit. It looks fun, and we can always use more legendary angels, right?

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

seshiro_of_the_orochi - Thank you! I love Beacon of Immortality and used to have it in an old Selenia, Dark Angel deck where I could one-shot someone if I had Tainted Remedy in play. Thank you again for the suggestions!

Check out Selenia, Dark Angel she is a cool commander that pings for 2 damage to return her to your hand. The idea with her is at the EOT of your opponents turn activate her ability with an odd life total to win the game with Near-Death Experience . There are lots of decks based off her.

What about something Orzhov, centered around draining, paying and switching life totals?. W/B offers lots of control options and there are several commanders that fall under that strategy. I personally like Selenia, Dark Angel because her ability allows her evade removal and can be stacked for life loss effects.

Esper has alot of stax builds though I'm not too familiar with the commanders. Black or Rakdos could be discard centric which is also a kind of control. There's Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger or something more Janky maybe like Neheb, the Worthy with a dash of Minotaur Tribal.
