|It's your destiny to get 2-for-1d with this card.|
Angelic Destiny wouldn't normally be on my radar, but there's a certain someone from Innustrad that partners well with this card for a two-turn clock. And since he's a ghost, I find it odd that he still has an 'Angelic Destiny', since, y'kno, if he had a destiny to be fulfilled then he wouldn't have died in the first place. Oh well.
|Celestial Collonade on a stick, anyone?|
As if nothing could sweeten this pot any more, we also just finished up a block on Mirrodin. Which means that it's Traft's destiny to hold a sword in his nonexistent hand when a lethal enchantment can't be found. It's up to Vorthos players to figure out how this deck even begins to make sense, because I honestly have no clue at this point.
|Sword of Sun Tsu and Ghandi|
So we have alternatives if Traft actually doesn't have a destiny, but what if we don't have Traft? There's alternatives to him as well, of course.
|I had one of these once. I think. Not sure, she was invisible.|
In short, Traft is a whore.
Fill out the list with some countermagic, consistency assistance, and there you have it. The Angelic Destiny of Traft the Prostitute. Yes, that really is what I call the deck.

This deck plays very similar to a combo deck, which is fitting seeing as it basically is, only with the added bonus of your opponent still not prepared for Angelic Destiny if you don't win off it in the first game. I said earlier that I was playing with a jank deck, and this is, but this is also a new Standard. Every rotation, there's one, maybe two decks that survive and then the rest is a lot of jank. So yes, this deck can win, and it can win a lot. I don't plan on playing it any time soon, I'll be honest, but it's honestly not my style of deck. If you want to go ahead and steal some games, then by all means, go ahead and do it. Your friends will probably hate you for it. And you're a Magic player, so I say 'friends' loosely.
This was Yo Mama, saying when you have a stalker, the best thing to do is give them a sword.
