Timely Ward

Enchantment — Aura

You may cast this spell as though it had flash if it targets a commander. (You may cast it at any time you could cast an instant.)

Enchant creature.

Enchanted creature has indestructible. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it.)

Phule451 this is what I've done to the deck now which includes your suggestions:

Timber Paladin > Gala Greeters

Timely Ward > Gallant Pie-Wielder

Angelic Destiny > Lady of Laughter

Starfield Mystic > Grand Crescendo

Idol of Oblivion > Sterling Grove

Please let me know what you think and if you have anymore suggestions to make this deck a great show

I see people discussing boardwipe suggestions. The only one not mentioned here I run is Promise of Loyalty

I see you're running Vow of Duty. The other two Vow auras are quite fun too, with their versatility to enchant Killian, or something else.

Vow of Torment Vow of Malice

Same for the Impetus auras.

Ghoulish Impetus Martial Impetus Parasitic Impetus

Some of my favourite most powerful cards for Killian are: Holy Mantle Astarion's Thirst Angelic Destiny Celestial Mantle Sage's Reverie Timely Ward Ethereal Armor Songbirds' Blessing

I'm also looking forward to having the new Redemption Arc and Idolized

Nice build!

Only changes I might make are adding Akroma's Will or possibly Timely Ward for a little more protection. I am not really sure what I'd recommend taking out though - maybe The Reality Chip? I haven't really played much with "look at the top of your library" effects, so I'm really not sure how much card advantage they provide in a game. Thoughts?

amarthaler: Timely Ward is definitely a "win-more" sort of card. As you can imagine, it's best cast in response to any sort of non-target destruction spell. I can't recall having to rely on it too often, but it is nice to have to back up your final push. I highly recommend it.

You're right - sorry I missed that.

How well does Timely Ward play? That card seems like it would be a finisher in most games!

I appreciate the upvotes!

Alright!

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.

Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.

Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.

Banisher Priest is good.

Blinding Souleater could easily be replaced by Law-Rune Enforcer, or, if you'd prefer an artifact creature, Burnished Hart is just better in general.

Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.

Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.

Consul's Shieldguard... see the Aegis Angel comments.

Court Street Denizen... see the Blinding Souleater comments, though this one is better so it's definitely worth keeping around if you want.

Drillworks Mole is a cool card. Basri Ket, Felidar Retreat, and Cathars' Crusade are good too.

Eldrazi Devastator is actually a card I used to run in my decks as a finisher. I would recommend something like Finale of Glory as an alternative that you can really sink your mana into.

Felidar Cub is nice, but War Priest of Thune is strictly better.

Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.

Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.

Inspiring Overseer and Knight of the White Orchid are good.

Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.

Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.

From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.

Toolcraft Exemplar is a really cool card that I have NEVER seen before. If it's working well for you, you should try out Serra Ascendant as well. It runs in a similar vein.

Welcoming Vampire is good too.

Celestial Flare could be replaced by Silence.

Dauntless Onslaught could be replaced by Charge, Bastion Protector, Benalish Marshal, Ethereal Guidance, Glorious Anthem, Guardians' Pledge, or Path of Bravery.

Divine Verdict could just be replaced by plain removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Conclave Tribunal, or Oblivion Ring.

Feat of Resistance is nice.

Gideon's Reproach - see Divine Verdict's feedback.

Gods Willing is good.

Kill Shot - see Divine Verdict's feedback. Actually, for the rest of these cards see that and Dauntless Onslaught's feedback.

Aligned Hedron Network is good.

Cloak of the Bat and Hero's Blade - see Dauntless Onslaught's feedback, but also Commander's Plate.

Spidersilk Net doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want another 0-mana artifact, look no further than Mishra's Bauble.

Font of Vigor - see previous comment

Siegecraft - Eldrazi Conscription is one of the best auras in the game, but Battle Mastery is nice too

Not Forgotten - Rest in Peace, Ashnod's Altar

Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned

Also consider Sphere of Safety.

I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Botanical Plaza, Windbrisk Heights, Unbreakable Formation.

Out:

Boss's Chauffeur, Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Timely Ward.

This is just to add more lands and reduce the mana curve of the deck.
