Top 10 Cards I am Going to Miss Post Rotation: #5 Angelic Accord

For those of you asking, I don’t hate white! And coming in at #5 is a card that proves it. (keep in mind my go to Modern deck is monowhite Soul Sisters!)

Angelic Accord

I think I am more fond of this card because of M14 Draft than actually utilizing it in constructed. This was by far my favorite strategy to draft in m14. Pairing this card with other cards like Trading Post , Bubbling Cauldron , or Brindle Boar was extremely satisfying. There were other ways to get recurring Angels through lifelink, especially hooking up a card with Mark of the Vampire. With enough stall with cards like Festering Newt and Child of Night , BW Accord won me a TON of m14 drafts. I must have played the format a ton because looking at my collection, I had 9 Mutavaults at one point.

Anyways, the best way to brew this flavorful card is around other cards that gain 4 life. The obvious choice is Warleader’s Helix. 4 Damage, 4 life and already “on color” with a splash of red is VERY synergistic with Angelic Accord. You can always threaten a huge 8 point life swing. Helix also does the job against those pesky 4 toughness dudes like Courser of Kruphix and Brimaz, King of Oreskos.

The next best option is Blood Baron of Vizkopa.  What I like about this card is the nice 4 turn into 5 turn curve. Unfortunately though, it takes another turn to swing with BB to gain that 4 life.

What I ended deciding on building is a mix of the two. A bit of control to wait out the Baron and a bit of Burn to threaten early games, paired with the highly effective combo of Bubbling Cauldron + Young Pyromancer for lots of stabilization. The deck also has access to sweet combos like Whip of Erebos + Obzedat Ghost Council or even Spark Trooper:
