Serra's Emissary

Creature — Angel


As this enters the battlefield, choose a card type.

You and creatures you control have protection from the chosen card type. ((Remember the acronym debt.) This can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything of the chosen card type. Anything of the chosen card type attached to this immediately falls off.)

Token wise Seance can be interesting in the deck along with Song of the Worldsoul. Also a little surprised at no Ajani planeswalkers. Also might like Soul of Eternity, Serra's Emissary, and Archon of Valor's Reach. Just a couple of thoughts.

JackNavi Thank you for your comment!

I had no idea Reprieve worked like that. That's nifty! I'll definitely consider it!. As for the other suggestions, I'm not wanting to be too in-depth in the equipment subtheme. I do run a few because I do want to be swinging, but I'm not really sure Helm of the Host or Blade of Selves is the direction I want to take the deck.

As for Serra's Emissary, it just makes me wish Iona, Shield of Emeria was legal >_<

Heyo, love the deck and theme. Quick additions from a fellow Angel Beats player: Sigarda's Aid will help out with all of your awesome Equipment. Serra's Emissary can protect your Platinum Angel from Instants and you from Creatures. And I would suggest running Helm of the Host or Blade of Selves for multiples of Giada and for fun! Also, I would run Reprieve in the deck as well, since you have Approach of the Second Sun to really lock in that win! Have fun and I hope to see more!!!!

I would definitely run Trouble in Pairs over Mangara, the Diplomat. Unfortunately it doesn’t come in foil and I’ve made it a point to foil out my entire Giada deck.

2 non-angel cards I have my eye on are Lost Jitte and Collector’s Cage.

With Jitte I’d probably stack counters and dump them all at once to untap a strong land like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Lotus Field.

For the cage I like the idea of doing hideaway on something big like Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Serra's Emissary for board wipe protection and a big swinger on your turn. You can then reset it with Guardian of Ghirapur or something that blinks it.

Azoth2099 oh oops, done! I've been wondering these past couple days how to also make the deck work with the cards I want, with enough card draw, but also not extremely dependent on Kaalia. I've felt that my most powerful turns are around turn 5-6 where I become a threat if I go full unga bunga but after that if there's a board wipe or I got Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Serra's Emissary, or Kaalia of the Vast spot removed, I go the rest of the game crippled headbutting walls.

No problem dude! Glad to help, truly.

As a longtime brewer of this particular Commander, I'm definitely seeing a few cards here that I would cut in favor of more card draw, Ramp, Tutors, & Interaction to get you to your power pieces like Vilis, Broker of Blood. Please don't take this the wrong way, but it will be a shorter list to include the things that I would personally keep in the list, sans Lands. Here we go:

Creatures: Vilis, Broker of Blood, Rune-Scarred Demon, Burning-Rune Demon, Ancient Gold Dragon, Drana and Linvala, Mother of Runes, Giver of Runes, Grand Abolisher & Serra's Emissary

Artifacts: All Mana Rocks CMC 2 or less, Swiftfoot Boots & Lightning Greaves.

Enchantments: Dragon Tempest, Phyrexian Arena & Phyrexian Reclamation.

Instants: Boros Charm, Swords to Plowshares, h Path to Exile.

Sorceries: Damn, Diabolic Tutor & Seize the Spoils.

Everything outside of these ones should be replaced with value pieces imo! I'd also heavily recommend that you pick up a copy of Razaketh, the Foulblooded. It was just reprinted in Commander Masters, and is hovering around ~$8 at the time of this post! It was just like $25-$30 a little while ago. Insane. I'd also recommend looking through the Dominaria Remastered set, lots of spicy reprints in there that have taken a price plunge & could be great here like Sneak Attack & Gamble.

Update May 2023: I stopped playing the Magic for almost 4 years, back now and made some swaps with newer cards as well as some cards that I should've been running in the first place.

Now I just need to figure out what to do when I run into the Serra's Emissary reanimator deck or something else that's just as messed up! LOL
