Deck Upgrade Suggestions

While the deck itself is slightly better than the ones you get from the tutorial, it can definitely be streamlined and upgraded with better cards, even at the common and uncommon level. Our budget Orzhov Clerics deck is probably the closest option for Avenging Angels that has a Cleric tribal and lifegain theme, that cares much more about building a board state and the synergy between cards rather than individually powerful cards:

    Hi, any suggestion for an improvement for this deck?

    I can undestand they don’t add gems or vault progress if u alredy have the full playsets, but don’t add extra copy if you already have the 1of is a scam!

  3. Dawn Wright says:

    The upgrades for the Orzhov Clerics deck calls for cards that won’t work using Lurrus as a companion. This will probably frustrate anyone trying to upgrade when they can’t find the 3 casting cost cards like Heliod.
