I thought about Angelic Cub but the lack of flying as a default ability kinda sucks. Guerric pulled out all the changelings because they lacked flying. In order to give it flying you'd need it to come out as the 4th angel with Giada on the field. Or you'd need to have equipments already on the field and target it to give its 3rd +1/+1 counter. Honestly it just sounds like a lot of setup for a flying angel body in the end. So, not a fan.

Sceptre of Eternal Glory is another mana rock. I've brought up the concept of mana rocks before but the disadvantage to them is that due to the lack of sufficient card draw in mono-white you're basically playing rocks instead of threats and you run out of gas quick.

Foster_I_Am I vote it replaces Sultai Emissary. It's 1 less and doesn't remove from the top of deck and both creatures are 1/1's so die easily to Skullclamp

Chittering Skitterling and Scheming Aspirant would’ve been perfect if not for the focus on the new toxic mechanic. There may be a new phyrexian aristocrat commander coming out soon that could take advantage of these cards.

Masterful had cut Dark Prophecy to test out Weatherlight Compleated but I'm thinking prophecy is better. While Weatherlight achieves the same thing when it's fully turned on it doesn't do much when it comes in late. You also need some form of sac engine going to get it up to snuff. Prophecy on the other hand can hit the ground running and draw you into answers from the get go.

Body Launderer is ok but we don't have too much reanimation going on so discarding cards is not always optimal. Our typical reanimation strategy is just going for Living Death that also acts as a board wipe. Agadeem's Awakening  Flip is also another option but can double as a land if we're mana screwed. Reanimate is used for our single target reanimation and for a single black it's hard to beat that slot. As Launderer is only a single target reanimation it doesn't beat these cards.

Storm of Souls used to be in the main decklist but 6CMC is a lot to hold up and the typical meta is usually faster with more interaction. It's another reason why cards such as Rise of the Dark Realms was also cut.

The one aristocrat we get from this set and it sucks. Vraan, Executioner Thane. 1B. Whenever one or more other creatures you control die, each opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life. This ability triggers only once each turn.

Perilous_Percival Haha to each their own. Whenever I get Brisela, Voice of Nightmares  Meld  Meld melded I push it towards the center of the table because the art creeps me out. :)

Masterful, jelwell

It was only the 1 game that I got color screwed and I ended up winning the game at the end so perhaps it was an outlier. I'll continue playing without the fetches and see.

The more I think on it the less I like either of the Dominus. Although they play into Teysa, they don't do anything more efficiently than what we're currently doing. Luminous Broodmoth is better not only because it's cheaper but we can also get some ETB effects from our tutor/fetch creatures. I definitely would never swap out Razaketh, the Foulblooded as he can simply end games being out and unanswered. The same could not be said for Drivnod.

I saw that too and was at first excited for a new angel BUT it's 5CMC so it's tied for Archangel of Thune, Herald of War, Lyra Dawnbringer and Sigarda's Vanguard. It doesn't gain life, cost reduce or finish the game. While it does increase the number of counters it's only once per our turn and only by a power of 1 per angel.

If we're trying to bring back Giada late game then we'd already need counters on the board to proliferate. If we're attacking it's not providing the same power as Vanguard which is essentially double. At most it'd be an 4-5 additional power? Nothing to write home about.

If we had other types of counters it could be interesting but at most it'd be an additional enlightened counter off The Book of Exalted Deeds or an extra quest counter for Luminarch Ascension. Neither of which are great choices.

As a body it holds up well enough, 5/4 flying first strike but at that cost we're looking more towards abilities and less at bodies.

If it's cheap and you want to test it out I'd say go for it but I'm personally passing. Also, it's phyrexian, and not pretty so ew. :)

Masterful & jelwell New card spoiled: Drivnod, Dominus of the Massacre

If a creature dying causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers one more time. {b/p}{b/p}, exile three creature cards from your graveyard: Put an indestructible counter on ~

Not sure how many death doublers we need but it requires far less setup than Ratadrabik of Urborg and could accelerate our gameplan much faster than before?
