Big Angel Tribal


Big Powerful Ladies With Even Bigger Swords

Definitely my favorite EDH deck I own: slowly build a board, fill the battlefield and start pounding away at the enemy (or, enemies). These ladies are also fantastic defenders, considering their massive size and threatening disposition, so use them to attack decisively, and hold back when you need to. The deck is loaded with protection and removal as well, in order to easily clear up a pathway and deal with any difficulties. This deck is resilient, a blast to pilot, and picks up speed well for its curve.

Each Angel is in here because one, they're damn good, and two, they each serve an individual purpose. Need a sac Outlet? Krav the Undredeemed's got you. Need to deny that really disgusting black deck the ability to sacrifice, or just turn off K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth? Angel of Jubilation does the job. Lifelink? Lyra Dawnbringer and any other angel. You need a Settle the Wreckage? Nah man. Settle the Wreckage + 3 mana + a body? Oh yeah. Angel of the Dire Hour.

  • Cards in the sideboard are ones I'm currently working on fitting in, or switching out with based on meta or a want to change up deck strategy.

Description still under construction

Since these beaters are also quite an investment to cast, I've made sure to put in as much protection as I can, to make sure they stay around and have some fun. (Disclaimer: Hexproof is my favorite keyword, so here's a section all about it and its friends.) Yeah!

These all provide some sort of saving grace. Hexproof, Indestructible, Regeneration, damage reduction, or protection from sac effects. Not much more explaining needed here. Stay healthy, stay safe.

Lots of this fun stuff. Hate your creatures dying? Me too! Want to get them back? Here's how!


Updates Add

In - Speaker of the Heavens - Solemn Simulacrum - Phyrexian Reclamation

Out - Swords to Plowshares - Darksteel Ingot - Eerie Ultimatum

I switched Swords to Plowshares with Speaker of the Heavens, as I'm already running a lot more pieces of multi-faceted removal, and another 1 drop permanent will help the curve a tad. I'll playtest it for a while and see how it feels. Solemn in because ramping feels better than an extra rock, and Reclamation because like Speaker, it lowers the curve and it's more widely usable.
