Serra Avatar

Creature — Avatar

Serra Avatar's power and toughness are each equal to your life total.

When Serra Avatar is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

RambIe on Angel Deck needs updating

3 months ago

Since you went with Atla Palani, Nest Tender
Put Thornbite Staff, Ashnod's Altar, Brion Stoutarm & Serra Avatar in deck.
The rest of the cards wont matter.

I really like that the hard counter to this deck is one copy of Serra Avatar and the extreme patience to discard it 200 times.

On one hand. This is what magic was meant to be. I havent played a few of these cards since i first put a deck together. Crusade. won't even show the image.. That is a discussion for another time...

Suggested additions

Loyal Warhound ramp in white

Skullclamp card draw

Sun Titan recursion

Abzan Falconer can give mass evasion

Some amount of board wipes my favorites atm are Tragic Arrogance Martial Coup Vanquish the Horde Ondu Inversion  Flip .

Cathars' Crusade it wins games. You may want to not use this so you focus on lifegain but this cards does work

Crested Sunmare lifegain payoff

Crovax, Ascendant Hero Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Soul of Eternity Celestial Mantle Axis of Mortalitykinda slow for my meta but might work for you.

Dawn of Hope card draw and can make tokens

Alseid of Life's Bounty protection w/ lifelink

Well of Lost Dreams card draw

Shattered Angel Angel of Vitality to keep with the angels if u want

Palace Jailer monarch is card draw also fun. and removal

Ajani's Pridemate lifegian payoff. its gets huge here because each attacking creature has its own trigger to grow the pridemate. i think 1 or 2 cards make essentially copies of this card. they might be worth looking for

Blind Obedience staxy and lifegain

Moon-Blessed Cleric you run a lot of enchantments your enchantress sub theme can be supported with this

Akroma's Will protection/ finisher

Noble Purpose unnoticed lifegain card that would be good here maybe

Lunarch Veteran  Flip Soul Warden Soul's Attendant Daxos, Blessed by the Sun Suture Priestlifegain dorks

Katilda, Dawnhart Martyr  Flip lifegain with enchantment payoff as well

now how do u win? atm you focus on going wide with weenies but have a focus on gaining life. Possible ideas Aetherflux Reservoir Archangel of Thune Felidar Sovereign Serra Avatar Starfield of Nyx Nykthos Paragon True Conviction

this is just some ranting. Its up to you how you want to build your deck! Other areas you should look at it your mana base (use tech lands you have almost all basics), ramp to your bigger stuff and card draw in general.

griffstick on Path to Exile or Swords …

Situational either card can be better. It really comes down to the type of deck it goes in and the decks you're up against.

These cards on their own at base value Swords to Plowshares is better. Unless you hit a token from the card Body of Research created. Or Serra Avatar or Malignus Type cards. Then Swords isn't good. Unless that big creature if gonna hit you. But then again it's situational.

Nice deck! I love a good aura deck. It just feels very old school magic goodness, you know?

I can think of a few things from my white deck that may or may not help. Up to you, but I figured I'd mention.

Sejiri Shelter  Flip is a great MDFC that can take a land slot. It can save you creatures in a pinch or power through that Serra Avatar for a KO.

Blaze of Glory effects can be really funny/oddly powerful with protection and umbras. Things like Entangler Valor Made Real Guardian of the Gateless Give No Ground Palace Guard I kind of love valor made real. You don't always end up playing it, but when you do, it's a huge surprise. And you can even throw it on an opponent's creature if it seems like it will swing something big. One of my favs is to Darksteel Mutation one of my creatures if I don't need it for removal and then put an Entangler on it : )

Sevinne's Reclamation can get you back some of your auras and most important, it can get back Prison Term Darksteel Mutation and other removal enchantments back, which can really be powerful.

Cast Out is a little expensive, but it's really nice that it can hit a variety of things at instant speed. Exiling things to break up combos can be really useful. And cycling is kinda nice sometimes.

Might think of some other ones. My decks are packed up right now, but that's what I could think up off the top of my head. Not sure if it helps or not, but just throwing some ideas : )

Oh and Moon-Blessed Cleric gives you a tutor and a decent body to put auras on. Every time I play her I feel like she's way better than I thought she'd be.

Scuttling Doom Engine was in the original iteration of this deck. It was definitely serviceable, and I'd recommend it for a budget build, but if it can be afforded, there's better stuff out there.

Evra, Halcyon Witness is AWFUL against removal and if people really think about it, it's a non-bo.All the card that rely on having a high life total are SCREWED if you use Evra: Serra Avatar, Soul of Eternity, Aetherflux Reservoir, etc. So while it looks good on first glance, it's bad.

There are so many good lifegain cards I could mention, but your deck looks fine. I haven't seen many Licia lists, but I like the way you're taking with it.

Just to list some potentially interesting cards to consider: Vilis, Broker of Blood is insane. Tivash, Gloom Summoner is powerful, as well. You could add in Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, and Ajani's Pridemate becomes huge in no time. Btw, Sunbond and Light of Promise can turn everything into Pridemate. Pontiff of Blight for more extort seems good here. Beacon of Immortality is a big life splash, and Serra Avatar can become really big.

Quickspell on Non-Creature Naya Card Draw?

1 year ago

Ramble it sounds like a great combo. I had considered putting Serra Avatar because she shuffles back like the Eldrazi, Blightsteel or even Worldspine Wurm . But with no trample I had no use for her. This is a fine way to use her!
