Selenia, Dark Angel Discussion

This is awesome! I have my own brew of Selenia, Dark Angel that I put on the shelf for a bit but happy that I stumbled across this for some inspiration and ways I can tweak my own. Check out the list here: Selenia's Suicide Squad. Thank you again! +1!!

Karlov is the 'tried and true' and likely easier route to go. Vona I think would require a different approach to make better use of their ability (untap effects, effect copy). Me being me would likely give Vona a try being as it's the path less traveled.

Black generally has no problem ramping (Urborg, Coffers, Black Market, sac effects), and white is slowly getting better ramp (Smothering Tithe), and mana rocks are a thing. So either way I think you're covered. I think the question is: Will you gain big chunks of life at a time (Vona) or small increments of life (Karlov). That I think would be the deciding factor for who gets the captains chair.

Not to further muddy the waters, but Selenia, Dark Angel is a fun commander for a life manipulation deck because her ability stacks, then you use the life loss/low life total to your advantage.

I think my most prominent inspiration is 'The Underdog' commanders. The not so popular, never considered tier 2 or above types. Take for instance Isperia the Inscrutable and Selenia, Dark Angel both I had never seen at a table and at the time, under 100 decks by EDHREC stats.

Second would probably be 'outside the norm' things. Example; Redless Dragons, or taking a popular commander like Riku of Two Reflections and making it an energy deck. Maybe this would fall under the 'Jank' classification? If that's the case you can add Golos.Wincon.dec which is just as it sounds... Mazes End, Gates, Approach, etc 'I win' cards.

And then there's tribes. I like some popular ones like dragons, and humans but I strive for the lesser known/supported like Wurms and Golems. Or try at least. If any of this sounds remotely interesting feel free to snoop. Love the articles btw #Moar_TO_Content_FTW. Keep em coming.

Here is all of them but for this idea you should go with something that spends life. Selenia, Dark Angel or Vona, Butcher of Magan are interesting options. Selenia is better for enabling combos faster and works great with the likes of Repay in Kind or Transcendence for that matter.

I have been on and off again trying to build a Lifegain/Pay Life matters deck with Licia, Sanguine Tribune and/or Selenia, Dark Angel .

I have noticed they are printing a handful of new cards with abilities that trigger "if you lost life" or "Whenever you lose life". I would love to see a commander that had phyrexian cost and cared about life gain/life loss.

Vigilance, lifelink

When you pay life you may put a -1/-1 counter on X target creatures where X is the amount of life you paid.

Whenever you gain life each opponent loses 1 life, then proliferate.


Something like that anyway.

Ravos, Soultender + Tymna the Weaver could work for what you want. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim or Karlov of the Ghost Council may also be an option if you want to include life gain and recursion, but if you're going to go that route I'd suggest Selenia, Dark Angel . Selenia is an underdog commander that may be overlooked until you start your gain and drain shenanigans.

Outside of that they're mostly like you said, Aristocrat style types. Hope I've helped a bit at least, good luck in your search. If you want to see an example of Selenia check my profile.

cmsrDPM on Licia Suicide Combos

Hi friend. I run a version of this deck with Selenia, Dark Angel and have really considered Licia for red.

There is an upcoming combo in this wheelhouse you may be interested in. Start with a Bolas's Citadel in play. Then Cast Doomsday . The cards you will pick (hopefully there are still in you deck) are Aetherflux Reservoir , Children of Korlis , Tainted Sigil , a land, and Beacon of Immortality .

Depending on your life total after halving it you may want more 1 drops than anything. But the plan is to make it so Beacon of Immortality is the only card in your library and you keep casting it off the top. You gain infinite life. Aetherflux Reservoir , Sanguine Bond , or Vizkopa Guildmage finish off your opponents.

I know this is a lot of cards you are not currently running. Just wanted you to have all the tools you might need.
