Hey guys my friend has a foil Spell Queller and neither of us play decks with it so we are looking to trade it if anyone wants it. I also have some non foil Spell Queller, a couple Selfless Spirit, an Ishkanah, Grafwidow and a Gisela, the Broken Blade as far as current standard cards are concerned. Let me know if you are interested and I will look through your binder as there are not many specific cards we are looking for. Thanks!

You already have Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal, meet Cryptic Gateway it so strong, and don't consume mana. Check out My Deck, it's fast (for an angel deck) and might give you some ideas to build up speed in your deck

Some cards you might like...
Hope it helped! :D

Lion's Eye Diamond is one possibility, while it can provide that extra broken push for an early general or skip over 1.5 deaths worth of commander tax into Draw 7, its a terrible top deck most of the time from mid to late when it would be better for you to not dump your hand.
Ensnaring Bridge I would replace Tangle Wire with it. Tangle Wire is best in a colored artifact deck that can recur it, multiply the counters more easily, etc.
Doubling Cube is questionable outside of green ramp decks, it is generally a win more card. True you only invest two mana to start, but when it gets blown up, that two mana you could have invested in a threat/mana rock/kill button(Disk, O-Stone) or simply left open to activate a land ability.
Krak-Clan Iron Works. When I am your opponent, I want you to sac all your stuff to this.
Scorched Ruins is a land you could consider depending on how much land destruction is in you meta. The pay off is huge if your meta can allow you the risk. And you can mitigate some of the sacrifice via Crucible.
Vedalken Orrery With Unwinding Clock you can be more reactive. Flash in Emrakul right before the person you want to control's turn, Use Ulamog like a doped up swords to plowshares, flash in Forcefield in response to an alpha strike, so on so forth.

ChiefBell is actually a more entrenched, and still current modern player. I gave up after they banned three combo decks in two years. Now I play mostly commander and legacy. The formats where combo decks can survive and people are expected to adapt and overcome instead of wait for a banning.
It is too bad that they brought back modern as a PT format for just long enough to kill all the interesting combo decks though. I was a big proponent of keeping modern as a pro-tour format, but the accelerated tuning of decks killed interesting decks and WotC's want to showcase new cards killed the combo deck that was the epitome of what they said they wanted in Modern. I got pushed out of the format by being given what I thought I wanted lol.

You have enough activated abilities in here to warrant a Rings of Brighthearth, (Which can go infinite with Basalt Monolith).
Alternately, there are enough triggered abilities to warrant a Strionic Resonator.There are enough artifact tokens and/or expendable artifacts to make a Time Sieve.Just some thoughts if Steelshaper's Gift isn't doing much for you.

I playtested this a bit, it's great when it works but it often isn't able to really get going. Maybe drop the Raze to increase the chance you draw a Stinkdrinker Daredevil? Often you can't spare the lands to cast it anyway.

Temur Battle Rage, Balefire Liege, Brutal Hordechief and Iroas, God of Victory feel like powerful cards for this deck. I'd also recommend some land destruction in case of mazes, or Kor Haven. I like Fulminator Mage, Avalanche Riders (for Alesha), Desolation Angel, Dwarven Blastminer, Dwarven Miner, Pillage and Wrecking Ball due to their extra utility. Stone Rain, Icequake, Molten Rain, Rain of Tears, Rancid Earth are more to-the-point.

The art of deck brewing can be super fun! I really get into it and sites like this make it even more enjoyable. The ideas and conversations that go back and forth is what it's all about - You should post a few of your decks and we can tune 'em.

The +1 is a much stronger ability than the -2 ... at 5 CMC I think it should probably just be 2 damage on the +1, or maybe 2 damage to a creature and 1 damage to that creature's controller. The -2 should probably be discard your hand and draw that many cards. The newest Chandra only costs 1 more mana and she lets you discard your hand and draw 1 extra. At 4 mana it would have to be different though.

I'm really sorry this reply took so long guys! I just moved into a new apartment and started classes up again so I've been super busy but I'm all settled in now.
I'm glad you like it Shane.Allen! This deck is not truly competitive so against tuned competitive decks you can be shut down fairly easily. This deck being boros and not being a combat damage themed deck means it'll never be tier one. That being said I don't use this as my competitive edh deck but rather one of my fun decks that I use for my own enjoyment and to wreck other casual decks.
That's awesome Drunk_Seryth! I'll message you now. I really hope I'm not too late to help!

I have a RG landfall deck too, though it's more tailored to being full-on aggro, with only the 2-drop landfall creatures being on the higher end of the curve.
Speaking of speeding up land drops, you can possiblyget away with adding in 2 Explorations.
Hope this helps!

Ha, thanks Handsome_Panda. I think that little douche-lord would hurt my game plan just as much as my opponents. He could be interesting if played when I have a clear board state advantage, but I hate his smug little face. FU Teeg.

The decks your are talking about are:
If you look closely, you will see, that it's the exact same person playing those two decks. This guy apparently thought it would be better to simply run a third mana dork instead of Nettle Sentinel. Besides Mystic Elves and Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid is the best 1 mana dork. The deck runs very few forest, and Beastcaller Savant doesn't let you ramp.

Fevered Visions and Jori En, Ruin Diver would make this deck really nice. Mystic Speculation would be a nice add as well. Stormchaser Mage is a cheap flyer that gains temp buffs off prowess trigger. You might be able to fit Nephalia Academy into your land combo so you don't actually have to discard then.

Perfect, that's what I thought. Thanks for confirming. I guess the only way an opponent could sacrifice the creature that dealt the damage is if the creature had indestructible and thus couldn't be destroyed by Dread, leaving it on the battlefield to be sacrificed.

Coinman1863 - Could you help me work on this? I want it to have a similar feel to yours in that it includes strong tutor, hatebear, and land manipulation packages but also keep the silly theme of "oops all creatures".
I'm a bit disappointed by the high average cmc, can you suggest any creatures that could substitute existing ones to help lower things a bit?
Do you think card draw suite is necessary or could i just go towards more hatebears/recursion/value etc options?
Is there any point in a large recursion suite or shall I just take a few repeatable examples like Avacyn, Reya, and Sun Titan which all have a repeatable long-game effect?
