Always Watching Discussion

How about Archetype of Courage? And also, maybe Honor of the Pure is redundant. Try a third copy of Always Watching better?

Anyway, nice deck!

Hey, love the deck. It takes guts to play a few copies of Gisela, the Broken Blade without it's other half. I know you are quite fond of Fairy Godmother, but a few Mardu Woe-Reaper can help deal with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath without dipping into the sideboard. Healer's Hawk is pretty good as well, especially if you have an Always Watching or Benalish Marshal out.

Chino90, I did sincerely think about that, but I decided to go with the one mana flier. Indeed, it turned out having Faerie Guidemother won me a couple of games because of Gift of the Fae (the instant spell on Faerie Guidemother)! I gave flying to Benalish Marshal and won that way. Nevertheless, I get why you say that. I just think it's better to have creatures with flying. Generating the 1/1 flying tokens is really nice, but they don't get the anthem effect of Always Watching, which proved to be crucial in nearly every match. I also think that Bishop of Wings may "tip my hat" a bit and let an opponent hold up removal for any angel that shows up. Sure, they would do that after game 1, but I'd rather keep it a surprise, generally speaking, and not tip them off to my deck being packed with angels, which that card would definitely signal.

Good suggestion, but for what I'm doing, I think Faerie Guidemother works a bit better. Thanks!

Since most of your creatures are human Angelic Overseer and Thalia's Lieutenant can pretty good finishers here. Cavalry Pegasus is probably a better option than Garrison Griffin here since it comes out sooner and gives most of creatures (humans) flying when it attacks with them. Honor of the Pure/Always Watching is pretty cheap and looks like it would be a nice fit for this deck. Also Knight of Meadowgrain is also really good in the early game. Hope this helps.

I would recommend mainboarding Always Watching since you're running Dragonlord Ojutai. It would maintain its hexproof since it protects itself from removals. While Deputy of Detention is nice, I would also recommend switching it to its enchantment version, Detention Sphere. You're going somewhere with this deck. Cheers!

In my opinion this deck has too many Artifacts or Enchantments for the amount of Creature it is running. Oftentimes in testing I had nothing to attach to Equipment that was on the field. It just sat there, doing nothing.

It is also missing some high value cards such as Thraben Inspector, Knight of the White Orchid, Selfless Spirit, and Declaration in Stone.

From experience (4 seasons of play) Ixalan's Binding is MUCH better than Banishing Light.

In a deck Always Watching is a must.

Has this deck played successfully in any tournaments? If so, I must be missing something.

Selfless Spirit and Thraben Inspector might be two handy additions.

Gisela, the Broken Blade is also VERY good. Once you cast her, aggro decks don't stand a chance. She's an early Angel too, so fits your theme. StuBi used her to great effect in his midrange deck.

Finally, Always Watching might be a good addition.

Silverdrake on Nya Exert

Looks fun! I think you DEFINITELY need to find room for either Brave the Sands or Always Watching (or both!). Exerting a creature means you don't untap it during your next untap step - but if it isn't tapped to begin with (because it has vigilance, for example) then exerting effectively means nothing at all! Either of those enchantments + combat celebrant = infinite combat!

I'd also consider Glory-Bound Initiate and Glorybringer
