Mono-white has several powerful keywords associated with it, such as flying, but vigiliance is another such effect.This means Angelic Field Marshal can pump our field while also giving us more freedom to attack and keep up blockers when Radiant is on the battlefield.Artifacts for this deck seemed to be focused on ramp effects via Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, and even Urza’s Incubator naming Angels.
In the end, this is what I think a current list would look like: was great for the Archangel!
Outside of that, Condemn, Return to Dust, Path to Exile, and Swords to Plowshares will permanently get rid of key parts of our opponents’ fields.
For sorcery spells, we want to be able to wipe the field whenever we are not in control.
Someone on Discord put it up for the poll and it WON! Like I mentioned, Radiant was originally printed as a rare back in Urza’s Legacy, all the way back when legendary creatures were classified as “summon legends.” At first glance, it can be easy to see why Radiant was shifted down to uncommon.
Five mana for a 3/3 flying and vigilant Angel does not seem like the best exchange rate.
