Avacyn Commander Deck

Hello everybody it's Monday again so here I am to beat everyone to the punch..."beat everyone to the *insert magic jargon here*", patient pending...I'm working on it. I thought I'd have to gripe about WotC's botch earlier today when they used some cheap programing method to host the first official spoiler for Avacyn Restored, it took them several hours but it was finally corrected.

Check it out.

While this fits your typical cookie cutter reanimator target, it's still underwhelming when she weighs in to Iona, progenesis, emrakul, even in standard this may make a decent companion to elesh, but it's not going to replace her.

And then I thought wow, this would be a pretty awesome commander.

So without further a due, the first Avacyn, Angel of Hope commander deck:

Of course this is just a rough draft, but this is what I would start out with before doing anything fancy like fit in a stoneforge package or change up the creature/wrath ratio, a lot of that has more to do with your own meta. The beauty of Alacyn is you don't have to play swiftfoot boots or lightning greaves, although I would recommend looking for a place for them once people wise up and start running oblation and chaos warp, but I couldn't begin to tell you the number of times I've had opponents that had to read oblation. Play dudes, ramp up, drop angel, and laugh as the battles of attrition fall into your favor. Enjoy.
