The Book of Exalted Deeds

Legendary Artifact

At the beginning of your end step, if you gained 3 or more life this turn, create a 3/3 white Angel creature token with flying.

, , Exile this: Put an enlightened counter on target Angel. It gains "You can't lose the game and your opponents can't win the game." Activate this ability only as a sorcery.

It really doesn't seem like you have enough life gain to justify / make use of The Book of Exalted Deeds.

Hey Basshunter, thanks for the sugestions.

I had Faceless Haven in the deck, at some point, to pair with The Book of Exalted Deeds, but my playgroup dosen't have any land destruction at all, (not because we are against, is just that nobody runs any "broken" land, so we never feel the need, the "meta" kind shaped tha way), so it became an automatically win, since nobody could interact with it. I usually stray away from that "win in the spot" type a thing, nothing against, is just dosen't fell that much earned, in comparison to beat the living shit of someone with angels, reason cut Angel of Destiny from the deck, as well.

Thanks for the input, if you have more fell free to give.

Mutavault and Faceless Haven? They have great synergy with The Book of Exalted Deeds + they are angels aswell!!

Basshunter awesome suggestions. Had to double check what you meant about the manlands that's a awesome combo with The Book of Exalted Deeds

Thank you :)

Hi! I love lifegain aswell, specially the soul sisters..

In here i think that Martyr of Sands could be a real beast!!

And every deck with The Book of Exalted Deeds needs a Mutavault and a Faceless Haven in my opinion! A land is bit harder to remove than a normal angel.. =)

Some thoughts:

  • Speaker of the Heavens feels pretty useful/mandatory here.

  • The Book of Exalted Deeds is pretty useless unless you have some way to abuse it (i.e putting it on a land). Steel Seraph also feels out-of-place and unhelpful here.

  • I’m not convinced that Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is helpful here, as it might trip-up your early turns more than it’ll help you late game - most your early turns require only white-pips, which it can’t help with. Late game i don’t see you needing mana anyway.

  • Even though I don’t think you want Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, i do think you need more lands. 20 is super low, and I would think this deck needs at least 23 to perform.

  • your deck is doing a lot at sorcery speed, you’re unlikely to be able to use Shelter in a way that isn’t clumsy - i’d just ditch it.

Hi, what you think about The Book of Exalted Deeds? You can add like Mutavault and Faceless Haven and get a Land that makes you almost unkillable

I had a similar build on Arena a while back using the more classic Solemnity + Nine Lives combo and this seems similar. One thing I found with my build was that Wishclaw Talisman can work against you, particularly if an opponent knows what you're up to. Idyllic Tutor will get you the same job done, but there's no opportunity for an opponent to Tutor their own deck for an answer. You could also go with Grim Tutor and it would open up the ability to fetch anything, but I'm not sure it's really needed here.

Beyond that, the only suggestion I'd make is moving away from all of those 'enters tapped' lands just to speed you up. The only real reason to use those indestructible Artifact lands is if you're trying to pull off a different "can't lose" condition with Majestic Metamorphosis + The Book of Exalted Deeds and since you aren't running that combo here I only see them inhibiting you.

Anyway, +1 for a neat build and feel free to add me on Arena if you want to deck tech further with it.
