Vault of the Archangel Discussion

darkmus on Serra's Descendants, competitive Angel Tribal

cabal_patriarch I was going to go a bit in depth of why your suggestions don't really fit in this deck, but zapyourtumor gave you a really good answer, basically all your suggestions dilute too much the plan of the deck. I would only ad that I don't like multiple legendaries in a deck, that's why Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a x3. She used to be 2x but since is ability makes her the only possible objective she doesn't tend to stay around for long. Also combos with Giver of Runes making a nice look that essentially makes all my stuff untouchable. Plus she can be used as short of a counter spell with vial, which can be really handy even if you already have 1 in play and you have to sack it. Plus we want as many angel creatures in the deck as possible to trigger all our stuff.

I haven't tried Vault of the Archangel but I don't feel that it would make the cut. Not because of the card itself but because we can't afford more colorless lands because the Cavern of Souls are great, but all our creatures aren't angels plus the 4 instants... So essentially why have in a way already 8 colorless lands. I've tried Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Field of Ruin and those showed me that I can not afford more colorless/conditional colorless mana. Also I may be wrong, I don know without trying, but I think that my creatures are relatively to big to have death touch be really relevant, and already gain me enough life to make the life gain redundant. Flavorwise is amazing though, xD.

cabal_patriarch If you're casting avacyn angel of hope you should have already won the game by then. Aetherflux Reservoir is more for storm, it doesn't gain much life in this deck especially cuz of vial, and if you have 50 life you don't really need a wincon at that point. Also, there's only 8 token generators so I don't think anointed procession is worth it.

1x Vault of the Archangel maybe? Flavor is on point.

zapyourtumor on orzhov afterlife lv 1

Are you sure you want this to be a modern deck? It could currently either be a modern or a pioneer deck, and you should probably choose one and stick with it.

If you choose modern, Doomed Traveler fits the theme of the deck pretty well. Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a powerhouse that gives all your creatures afterlife, doubles as removal, and is another instant-speed sac outlet. Honestly, she's the only reason I would consider playing an afterlife deck in modern. Xathrid Necromancer is another option that generates tons of tokens off of most of your creatures, and it works really well with Hero of Precinct One .

For lands, there's Marsh Flats , Concealed Courtyard , and Isolated Chapel . Vault of the Archangel is very strong in any token deck.

This deck definitely needs a playset of Fatal Push for removal which works in either format, plus maybe some Path to Exile or Vindicate if you choose to stick with modern. Mortify is bad in both formats so I'd cut it. 4x Kaya's Wrath is definitely overkill and might not be the best choice, since even though your board would have a bunch of spirits it would still wipe a lot of your creatures.

Giant Killer is just bad outside of standard. Athreos and Ethereal Absolution are also too slow, and I don't think Sorin adds enough to the gameplan to justify including him. Teysa Karlov obviously synergizes a lot but I'd take her out since she doesn't have any immediate board impact (while the other Teysa can have its abilities activated at instant speed to do a bunch of stuff in response). Not sure if Corpse Knight is worth it either. The other Athreos, Athreos, God of Passage , might be worth trying as a 1-of.

Hey lobsternips! Thought I'd jump in and give you my take on what you've got going on. Your noncreature spells look fantastic, not much I would take out, but if you can find a way to fit in some creature recursion in Rise of the Dark Realms or Thrilling Encore with your mass creature destruction in dictate or Killing Wave . Also bounce-type effects like Conjurer's Closet could make use of your etb effects, you'd definitely see some usefulness there. The only problem I see with this deck is its SUPER heavy into red, there are some non-red Goblins out there, but you'd basically be playing a Red deck splashing white and black for support. However, Goblins are funny and mean just like Negan.

As for creatures, I love what you're doing. Lots of synergy, and I love the Goblin tribal theme. Also, love the Kiki-Jiki inclusion, plus with snoop you sorta just win.

Hope I helped some, I probably didn't seeing as I gave more inclusion suggestions rather than cuts. If you decide on doing one thing like "Go Wide" or "Go Tall", adjust your cards to reflect that. Aside from that good luck on your deckbuilding!

carpecanum Those are some great suggestions. I’m definitely going to put Vault of the Archangel and Palace Siege in there, and the the others are also very interesting. Thank you kindly good sir

Thief of Blood, Vault of the Archangel, Demonspine Whip

Anything that lets you recast your vampires would be good. Palace Siege etc.

Depending on who you play you might need a couple things to give your boss hexproof or shroud. maybe protection from a color.

Erebos, God of the Dead is a solid recommendation especially now that I've removed Tainted Remedy.

Bloodchief Ascension would be a good consideration if I had ways to force discard and a lot of destroy effects. As it is the only ones I have are No Mercy and Vault of the Archangel.

I'd put in Oath of Kaya if I had more than just the one Planeswalker.
