Swords to Plowshares Discussion
7 hours ago
The archetype of "Flying Men" is certainly a fun one and cheaper than many other Canadian Highlander decks. A few suggestions one could make are the inclusions of cards like Preordain , Serum Visions , Dig Through Time and Ancestral Vision for card draw and card selection in addition Ponder and Opt which you have already included. Also, perhaps adding fetchlands to the deck could enable finding Watery Grave more easily. Moreover, Vendilion Clique would be a perfect fit for the deck. Last but not least, you could splash white for removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile , along with more flying one-drops such as Healer's Hawk , Duskborne Skymarcher , Loyal Pegasus , Suntail Hawk and more, as these creatures synergize with Favorable Winds , unlike other creatures in the deck like Triton Shorestalker , which do not. Sorry for the length of the response, hope it was even a tiny bit helpful. Nonetheless, Canadian Highlander is such a fun and diverse format, so just play what you enjoy most!

Looks fun! I would personally suggest Anguished Unmaking over Utter End (I prefer the lowered cost), and even in a voting deck Illusion of Choice seems very situational: maybe Swords to Plowshares or Reparations instead?

Hey, good first version, nice Avacyn, Angel of Hope :)
29 lands is unfortunately not enough land especially since Tariel is seven mana... The priority for deck changes to consider is to add more lands and add more ramp. I recommend 38 lands and 5 more additional mana sources. You don't just need more lands for Tariel you need them to be able to consistently play the other Angels in your deck since many of them have high mana costs.
Budget cards ($3 or less each, most are $1 each) to consider adding:
- Battlefield Forge
- Caves of Koilos
- Exotic Orchard
- Inspiring Vantage
- Concealed Courtyard
- Opal Palace
- Ash Barrens
- Foreboding Ruins
- Tainted Field
- Talisman of Conviction
- Talisman of Hierarchy
- Orzhov Signet
- Commander's Sphere : can sac it later on in the game to draw a card.
- Mind Stone : sac to draw a card.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Angel's Feather
- Scroll of Avacyn
- Pious Interdiction
- Angelic Gift
- Increasing Devotion
- Syndicate Guildmage
- Cathar's Companion
- Angelic Wall
- Ritual of Rejuvenation
- Flameblade Angel
- Angel of Renewal
- Teyo, the Shieldmage
- Kaya, Bane of the Dead
Replenish is an amazing expensive price card, it's great you have it, but it's not doing much here because there's only seven enchantments. Because you have Replenish you should consider building an enchantment matters deck with lots of enchantments.
Other budget upgrades to consider:
- Angel of Despair > Pristine Angel
- Adarkar Valkyrie > Subjugator Angel
- Angel of Serenity > Resolute Archangel
- Karmic Guide > Light of the Legion
- Unburial Rites > Defy Death
- Animate Dead > Aid the Fallen
- Boros Charm > Unlikely Aid
- Swords to Plowshares > Rally of Wings
- Generous Gift > Topple the Statue
- Aven Mindcensor > Tomik, Distinguished Advokist
- Hour of Revelation > Descend upon the Sinful
- Entreat the Angels > Decree of Justice
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Nice upgrade of the precon, but consider less creatures, more one and two drop enchantments? Lots of creatures is not really needed because Daxos is a repeatable source of creatures from the Command Zone. For him to create a token that's worth three mana then you need to be casting enchantments. One and two drop enchantments can give you experience counters faster and also reduce the avg. CMC of your deck.
- Flickering Ward
- Kaya's Ghostform
- Animate Dead : reanimate a creature from any graveyard including an opponents.
- Angelic Renewal
- Luminarch Ascension
- Darksteel Mutation : shut down an opponents Commander since it doesn't destroy or exile so the Commander can't go back to the Command Zone. The Commander can't do anything until this aura is removed and indestructible prevents it from dying from most board wipes.
- Blind Obedience
- Authority of the Consuls
- Aegis of the Gods : enchantment creature, give yourself hexproof.
- Dreadhorde Invasion
Ward, Ghostform and Renewal can protect Daxos. Bounce Ward for one mana and then cast it again. For Ward is an engine to get experience counters with Daxos, draw a lot of cards with Mesa, gain a lot of life with Coinsmith, create a lot of Angels with Throne, etc. Conviction can also be an enchantment engine for .
Ascension can be a repeatable source of creatures it's amazing in multiplayer Commander because it looks at each opponents end step. Obedience and Consuls expand on the pillowfort strategy which is helpful to stall opponents, giving you more turns to get experience counters, get other value from casting enchantments and make Spirits with Daxos. Exort is also a deceptively powerful effect in multiplayer Commander.
Hall of Heliod's Generosity from Modern Horizons brings a new graveyard strategy with repeatable enchantment recursion for white enchantress decks (wanting to cast enchantments to get value). You can now use your graveyard as a source of enchantments. Hall has good synergy with an enchantment that can sac itself to give you value such as Seals, Aura of Silence, etc. since you can recur it, draw it and cast it again. Sun Titan is very good repeatable reanimation of 3 or less CMC permanents includes enchantments and lands.
Other budget cards to consider adding:
- Command Tower : best land for multicolored Commander decks.
- Caves of Koilos
- Concealed Courtyard
- Reliquary Tower : no max hand size is helpful when drawing cards with Mesa.
- Heliod's Pilgrim : tutor for an aura.
- Open the Armory : tutor for an aura or Boots/Greaves.
- Talisman of Hierarchy : two drop Orzhov mana rock.
- Commander's Sphere
- Mind Stone
- Swords to Plowshares : staple white creature removal in Commander.
- Generous Gift : soon to be staple white permanent removal in Commander.
- Read the Bones
- Night's Whisper
- Day of Judgment : four drop creature board wipe.
- Fumigate : five drop creature board wipe that gains you life.
I'm not going to give you an exact plan of what cards to cut and replace. Instead, I'm giving you lots of options, list of 26 cards to consider adding and list of lots of cards to cut. I'm leaving it up to you to make the decisions of what you cut. My advice of cards to cut are creatures and high CMC cards. Cards that don't give you value right away or repeatable value over time can be cut. The exceptions for these kinds of cards is removal, board wipes and draw spells, but you only want a few of these kinds of cards not a lot instead focus on enchantments.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God
- Vivid Meadow
- Orzhov Guildgate
- Vivid Marsh
- New Benalia
- Herald of the Host
- Necromancer's Covenant
- Deadly Tempest
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
- Dreadbringer Lampads
- Treasury Thrull
- Thrilling Encore
- Thief of Blood
- Silent Sentinel
- Celestial Archon
- Vow of Duty
- Vow of Malice
- Kor Sanctifiers
- Corpse Augur
- Burnished Hart
- Banishing Light
- Traveler's Amulet
- Ghostblade Eidolon
- Orzhov Cluestone
- Death Grasp
- Finale of Eternity
- Ancient Craving
- Marshal's Anthem
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Out: Gild --> willst nix exilen sondern in den Graveyard packen, Springleaf Drum --> zu langsam und du willst nix tappen, Ghostly Prison --> geschmackssache muss nicht sein hast genug gute Kreaturen zum blocken, Death Grasp --> besser wäre hier Debt to the Deathless bring lieber alle um als nur einen, Bontu the Glorified muss hart drum herum gebaut werden besser wäre der neue bontu God-Eternal Bontu , Overseer of the Damned --> zu langsamer removal und zombies kommen tapped rein meh, Pontiff of Blight --> Extort brauchst du nicht bzw. das ganze gibt es billiger in Tithe Drinker .
In: Anguished Unmaking + Utter End + Despark + Swords to Plowshares --> typisches Removal Package in Orzhov, Selfless Spirit --> sehr gut weil protection von wipes, Golgari Thug --> kann rein füllt graveyard, Enlightened Tutor --> wenn du ihn hast perfekt findet Skullclamp, Living Death --> hervorragender Boardwipe für dich, Viscera Seer --> immer gut zum saccen, Pawn of Ulamog --> sac futter und ramp,
Rest hast du schon drin.

Kiyomei - The best hate cards to shut down Brago are Aven Mindcensor and Torpor Orb . Brago searches the library constantly. Usually multiple times a turn. And obviously etb triggers is the name of the game. Brago also struggles against Ensnaring Bridge , Maze of Ith , Spore Frog , Constant Mists or anything else that prevents him from dealing damage. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite making him a 0/2 for example. Anything that prevents him from triggering is the most relevant hate. Often that is simply targeted removal or a board wipe. An early Aura of Silence can also be painful to fight through because of the tax and built-in removal. Vandalblast overload can hose Brago as well.
Sanctum Prelate on 2 would stop Strionic Resonator , Lightning Greaves , most counterspells, many mana rocks, Power Artifact , Cyclonic Rift , etc. I think 2 would be best against Brago. However, 3 does stop Fabricate , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth ; and 1 stops Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , some counterspells, some mana rocks, Sensei's Divining Top , Silence , etc. If I was playing against Brago I would choose 2. Next best is 1 in my opinion, then 3.

Token generation without Precursor Golem ? This commander was made to enable him.
As far as removal... you have Oblation and Chaos Warp , which are good, but you may also want to consider Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares . Have I used Path to Exile copied across six golems, netting myself six basics, in a response to a board wipe? Yes, yes I have.
If you want to check out my list, it's below. There are still a few cards I need to swap out, like Faith's Shield ; it has been a dead card every time.

I made a chopping block, figuring I can live without these cards and replace them with probably lands but other cards for sure. I threw most of this together a little quickly after all:
Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Mother of Runes , Dread Shade , Well of Lost Dreams , Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant , Wall of Glare , Iona, Shield of Emeria , Obzedat, Ghost Council , Sentry of the Underworld , Lord of the Void , True Conviction , Ashes of the Abhorrent , Swords to Plowshares
I also just straight swapped my Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds for swamps. I end up using them to search for one 90% of the time anyways, and more swamps lets my Extraplanar Lens give me more.
