Liesa Shadowborn Apostles

Commander Deck Help forum

Thoughts on Liesa Shadowborn apostles? I’m not sure how to build it - the cmc and delayed effect make it different enough from Athreos that I’m pretty lost but still want to stick with the apostles theme. I want to keep the combo-y feel that Athreos has but also want to run Liesa. Any suggestions are welcome

I can't imagine it'd play too differently... I feel like any Athreos list you find would be ok to just swap out the commander for.

I think the only real change vs an athreos build is I would have more protection like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Hammer of Nazahn, Shield of Kaldra, etc, just because she doesn't have as much in built protection as athreos does. Maybe also a few more board wipes along with the indestructible protection for Liesa, that way your stuff can come back, and your opponents things stay exiled.

Mostly Agree
i would just add cards like Dictate of Erebos to the current suggestions to take advantage of Liesa, Forgotten Archangel secondary ability forcing opponents to exile creatures when you sacrifice Shadowborn Apostles.

I like Atherosclerosis personally. Comes down sooner and is harder to get rid of.
