Vanquisher's Banner Discussion
2 days ago
Hello all! I have a handful of cards I'm looking to part with. I'm planning to list them on TCG player at the end of the week, but figured I'd give everyone here first crack at them. It's mostly little stuff, but there are a pair of reserved list cards in pretty good condition I'm planning to part with.
I can take payment through PayPal, and shipping is covered in all purchases. Generally, I'll ship under $30 in an envelope, and $30+ in a bubble mailer with tracking. Prices should generally be about 10% below the cheapest card of similar condition I found when I pulled them from TCG, but if I'm off, feel free to let me know! I've noted condition for the more expensive stuff and am happy to provide pictures, though generally everything on this list is NM.
- Yawgmoth's Will: NM/LP condition, priced at $120 (~ $15 less than the cheapest LP I found on TCG)
- Wheel of Fortune: LP/MP, priced at $160 (~ $15 less than the cheapest MP I found on TCG)
- Shalai, Voice of Plenty: $3
- Whip of Erebos: $3
- Thousand-Year Storm: $3.50
- Ob Nixilis, Unshackled: $5
- Ashnod's Altar: $6
- Chromatic Lantern: $6
- Dictate of Erebos: $6
- Starfield of Nyx: $7
- Dragonlord Silumgar: $9
- Ob Nixilis, the Fallen: $10
- Neheb, the Eternal: $10
- Rankle, Master of Pranks: $10
- 2 Aetherflux Reservoir: $4 each, or two for $7
- 4 Cryptolith Rite: $5 each, two for $9, or all four for $16
- 2 Vanquisher's Banner: $6 each, or two for $10
Again, if you're interested, please let me know! I'm happy to adjust as the market changes, and I'll remove items from this list as they're sold. At the end of the week, I'll be posting these on TCG.

Love the list. A few things to consider.
First of all you have a mill strategy, make sure you have enough graveyard hate to handle graveyard decks.
Second, the expensive card I need to mention Bitterblossom
Ok, real feedback:
When I am turning my creatures sideways a lot I like Dolmen Gate
Since you are tribal, Cover of Darkness, Door of Destinies and Vanquisher's Banner might be nice inclusions. You a few tribal pieces, but I wonder if cost reduction is more important than other synergies.
Whirler Rogue and Sure-Footed Infiltrator seem like they might be weaker than the other rogues in this deck. They might be okay, but my feeling is they might be the rogues you cut. May I suggest: Dunerider Outlaw is a lot better than you might think. Ghostly Pilferer seems commander friendly. Also a not so budget friendly True-Name Nemesis, but money is a thing.

wgoms: Thank you for your suggestions! They all fit the deck very well.
Kindred Discovery is a little out of my current budget, but will definitely make a future version of the deck.
Bloodforged Battle-Axe is interesting, but seems a little inconsistent. I will do some more playtesting and get back to you.
Thada Adel, Acquisitor was in the original decklist, but I took her out because she drew a lot of hate and didn't really further the strategy of the deck.
Thieving Skydiver is a card I had not thought about in conjunction with the deck! Its ability is interesting, and more consistent than I thought at first sight, as it can "steal" your own equipment to get around Equip costs.

I like the idea of adding OG Purphoros, I think that adding Vanquisher's Banner, Markov Blademaster, and/or Icon of Ancestry would be good. Adding some of the other Sorin planeswalkers would be a solid choice. I'm not super keen on Ashnod's Altar, attrition, vampire nocturnus, anointed procession, or mana echoes. You're running a three-color deck,and so colorless sources won't help as much as one might think. You aren't doing much with tokens, so procession isn't super good, and Vampire Nocturnus is a 4-drop with triple pips, so casting it is going to be tricky. attrition has a caveat, and so I'm not as big on it as other cards.

Solid build +1
I'd recommend adding in something like Vanquisher's Banner since you've got a consistent creature type to play off of. A lack of card draw is about the only glaringly obvious thing I can see that'd help this deck along.
You might also consider some Counterspell type effects since your mana curve is fairly high (not a lot of 1-mana drops and only a couple 2-mana's) as these would help keep you protected while you build up your board state a bit.
Spirit Mantle is devastating and equally makes creatures Unblockable (among many other things with Protection). I'm not sure if you're really leaning on the Lifelink from Steel of the Godhead, but this could be a beneficial swap potentially (maybe Sideboard for play against decks you can keep at bay w/o Lifelink while you build up?)
Beyond that, stuff like Index can help you churn out what you need fairly quickly, especially early game where you may be after a certain color of mana (your distribution looks pretty good tho, not like you're hurting).
Either way, nice job

Vanquisher's Banner is an extremely reliable way to generate some Card Draw (pretty much essential in a deck anymore), and Grave Defiler is another extremely good way to work through your deck faster. Cryptbreaker isn't really reliable since not only do you need at least 2 other Zombies in play to activate him, but you also Tap them which takes away from your attack potency for the turn.
Cheers on your choice of Sudden Spoiling, that's another one I tend to recommend. Split Second is so powerful and so often overlooked.

Your average cmc is over 4, thats really high. I would recommend cutting 6 high cmc creatures for Talisman of Conviction Boros Signet Arcane Signet Boros Locket Fire Diamond Marble Diamond locket is bad but the 2 cards can help later in a pinch. Also try to find some lower cmc spells to swap for some fatties Maybe include Speaker of the Heavens and Bishop of Wings or other angel relevant clerics. Do you have a meta that supplies enough time for Burnished Hart ? I find it to be incredibly clunky, its 2 turns to play 2 extra lands. I would just add Myriad Landscape to the mana base and swap the burnished hart for Knight of the White Orchid Legion's Initiative can protect your team from a wipe. Leaving mana open is hard in Boros, but losing creatures with limited card draw is very bad. Eerie Interlude and Unbreakable Formation or Teferi's Protection can also protect the team if there is a board wipe. And now the important part. Herald's Horn and Vanquisher's Banner since your tribal red has wheels and impulse draw like Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel there's Mazemind Tome 4 scrys for 2 mana is a fair rate and if you need cards or have the mana open go ahead and draw. Stolen Strategy Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Rogue's Gloves Chandra, Torch of Defiance Mask of Memory can all get you cards just off the top of my head but Im sure scryfall or looking through some other gisela decks will render many more options as well. Cheers good luck with your Angels!

Metallic Mimic (Maybe - because of counters)
