Angel Stax is an old Legacy deck that doesn't see much play anymore. Often it has evolved with Armageddon Stax into White Stax, a strong combination of the two.

The old Angel Stax used to run cards like Exalted Angel, Wrath of God and Smokestack. The idea of the deck was to hold back your opponent using cards like Tangle Wire, finally locking with Smokestack: your opponent has to sacrifice a permanent every turn, while you use Crucible of Worlds to recur your land.

The more potent White Stax usually contains the following cards:

  • The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale
  • Magus of the Tabernacle
  • Armageddon
  • Ravages of War
  • Ghostly Prison
  • Moat
  • Trinisphere
  • Chalice of the Void
  • Smokestack
  • Exalted Angel
  • Flagstones of Trokair
  • Crucible of Worlds

This is a representative stax deck as of March 2009
