Akroma, Angel of Wrath Discussion
1 week ago
Platinum Angel, Balefire Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Angelic Skirmisher, Bladewing the Risen, Dragon Mage, and Archfiend of Depravity to name a few AMAZING creatures. I would remove your Sarkhan for Sorin Markov or just add him in.
Don't know if Akroma's Memorial would be counterproductive, but would still give your cards a lot of benefits. Armageddon and Wrath of God wouldn't hurt as wipes. Cavern of Souls would be good for counter decks. Blood Crypt and Godless Shrine is more useful for your fetch lands than Bloodfell Caves and Wind-Scarred Crag

D1beast: I pretty much just went to my binders for your request for a budget version. I haven't looked for much card interaction, mostly just trying to help this deck capitalize on Mayael's ability to cheat cards while keeping the price tag low.
Unfoil Blazing Archon.
Sideboard Omnath, Locus of Rage, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Dragonlord Atarka, Dromoka, the Eternal and Dragonlord Dromoka - put these in as you please.
Remove Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Scourge of the Throne, Vigor, Sword of Feast and Famine, Thran Dynamo, Rings of Brighthearth, Defense of the Heart, and all non-basic lands except for Command Tower and Reflecting Pool.
Adjust basic lands to 15 Forest, 11 Mountain, 10 Plains.
Add Aegis Angel, Bane of Bala Ged, Elderscale Wurm, Essence of the Wild, Krond the Dawn-Clad, Scaled Behemoth, Stoneshock Giant, Tyrant of Discord, Green Sun's Zenith, Primeval Bounty.
Total Cost of Mainboard as of 5/15 (TCG): ~$169. Sideboard adjustments above total ~$16-$17.
Again, this probably isn't optimal and needs tweaking to make all the removals and additions work together, but these are some ideas to take the deck if you wanted a unified theme.

At the very least, I would try to find room for Thousand-Year Elixir as that pseudo-Haste can be very key to ensuring you get value from your commander ASAP. Not to mention untap triggers are pretty great, so Magewright's Stone can also be a pretty powerful inclusion. And the ability to untap your general cranks up the value of cards such as Molten Primordial exponentially.
And let's not forget that Scuttling Doom Engine is just downright hilarious in this kind of deck. I'm also not sure why you would run Expedite over Hammer of Purphoros, as the latter is static and can even give you more fling targets should you start to draw into excess land. And speaking of land, Command Tower>>>>>>>Rupture Spire
As for things to cut, War Elemental, Invincible Hymn, Living Inferno, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Sunblast Angel, and Astral Cornucopia seem to be really slow cards for what they do, while cards like Stonehorn Dignitary, Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Bull Cerodon, Dragon Hatchling, Reroute, Wing Shards, and Desperate Ritual just look too low impact/situational to keep.
Anyway, those are just my impressions on the deck. It looks really fun and I hope you find my suggestions helpful.

I think Akroma, Angel of Wrath would be a nice addition too.

Eladamri's Call and Cromat have never been reprinted, so I would like to see them reprinted in this set, and Worldly Tutor also should be here, as well, since it was left out of Eternal Masters in favor of Green Sun's Zenith.
As for iconic creatures, my predictions are as follows:
Angels: it is very safe to presume that both Serra Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath shall be in this set, hopefully, with new artwork for both, and I also would like to see Angelic Arbiter, Shepherd of the Lost, Angel of Jubilation, Pristine Angel, Iridescent Angel, Crypt Angel, Desolation Angel, Angel of Despair, Empyrial Archangel, and Archangel of Thune.
Demons: Lord of the Pit is one of the most iconic demons in the game, but some other excellent choices are Abyssal Persecutor, Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon, Butcher of the Horde, Grinning Demon, Havoc Demon, Herald of Torment, Kagemaro, First to Suffer, Kuro, Pitlord, Lord of the Void, and Xathrid Demon.
Sphinxes: it was not until recently that sphinxes started to become powerful and efficient, but, thankfully, there ave been a number of excellent sphinxes made, recently, including Consecrated Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx, Goliath Sphinx, Guardian of Tazeem, Medomai the Ageless, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, and Sphinx of Uthuun.
Hydras: as with sphinxes, hydras only recently have been well-designed creatures, so some hydras that I would like to see in this set are Apocalypse Hydra, Domesticated Hydra, Genesis Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Kalonian Hydra, Khalni Hydra, Managorger Hydra, Primordial Hydra, Savageborn Hydra, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, and Vastwood Hydra.
Dragons: there are too many dragons for me too list all of them, but it is safe to presume that Shivan Dragon shall be in this set, hopefully with new artwork, and some of my top choices are Moonveil Dragon, Balefire Dragon, Dragon Tyrant, Ebon Dragon, Mirrorwing Dragon, Moltensteel Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, Stormbreath Dragon, Two-Headed Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Vampiric Dragon, Viashivan Dragon, and Hellkite Overlord.
Wow, I certainly typed many card names in this post: I hope that I did not miss any.

Just to say thanks for coming back and keeping this deck updated!
I've been following it since I started playing commander and was probably the tipping point to bring me into the format ~late 2015! I have my own version of this too, granted without some of the more expensive cards ( Moat !)
One of the two suggestions I could think of would be Odric, Lunarch Marshal in and maybe for Linvala, the Preserver out? (she always seemed to underperform for me in my mono-white Akroma, Angel of Wrath deck, but i'd be interested to know your thoughts!)
One other card suggestion is Aven Mindcensor - due to the prevalence of combo strategies in EDH/Commander these days, would you say the 1 health and its obvious effect would paint a huge target on it? It would force someone to burn removal on it at the very least, especially if playing a multicolour deck and needing to search for lands/combo pieces..
Thanks again for restructuring the deck, I look forward to where you take it in the future!

I'm delighted to hear that my suggestions have been so well received! Looking at your list, it now boasts a clock that it didn't before. Regardless of whether Descendants' Path nabs a scary angel, it has the added benefit of threatening to do so. Opponents will never feel safe if you have this, and an angel on the board.
That being said, there are a couple of angels that I'm not the biggest fan of. These two could be replaced by two extra copies of Bruna, the Fading Light improve your inevitability. Akroma, Angel of Wrath folds to Path to Exile (unlike her red counterpart), and doesn't feel super good for an eight-drop. Reya Dawnbringer, while good, also loses to a Path, whereas Bruna will benefit your board-state the moment she hits the field. Also, Bruna can be flickered with Restoration Angel to start rebuilding the board faster (and possibly bring back Gisela for the meld).
So, there's one final thing that I noticed. Most of the Angels in your deck have a bagillion different keywords on them. So...what better jank way to win than a singleton copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal? Just a thought.
