PhotogenicParasympathetic mmm well I have had a mardu Angel deck in the past. Are you only looking for mono white ones? I believe I have most of the good ones except linvala, so like Tariel, Gisela, Aurelia, the other flip avacyn etc. The only two im interested in keeping are the Angel of hope and tithes really, here is a list:

Gisela, the Broken Blade, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Archangel Avacyn, Restoration Angel, Aurelia, the Warleader, Admonition Angel, Bruna, the Fading Light, Herald of War(foil), Akroma, Angel of Fury, Serra Avenger, Radiant, Archangel, Emeria Angel, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls(comm, FTV, oversized versions), Anya, Merciless Angel, Angel of Despair, Exquisite Archangel, Reya Dawnbringer, and like 10 others under a dollar.

Declamor on triad of the fates EDH

Yeah it is a little light on the card draw, but was sticking to a strict enter the battle effects and flicker cards only. Pay life to draw cards like Read the Bones where out. I ran Ichor Wellspring for a while but it did not help that much. And if you really need to you can use Triad of Fates black ability on a token creature of yours.

I put fate counters all over the board. Just the threat of exiling cards keeps people at bay in large matches.

Lastly for board wipes, I can usually flicker my way around them. Yes it is hard to rebuild but if trigger a flicker in response having Angel of Despair as the only creature in play and removing a land is a huge advantage.

I will have to take this into consideration.

Harvester of Souls is here because it is awesome synergy with Teysa. I don't actually remember why Gift of Orzhova is in here, and I had more recursion at one point with a plan to just keep casting Ashen Rider and Angel of Despair over and over again. As with Suture Priest, now that I think about it it probably wouldn't do that well unless against a token deck.

These were some good cut ideas, I probably wouldn't have thought of it. Thanks!

Here are some of my considerations for what to cut:

Gift of Orzhova: Not sure how much this adds to your deck. You have a number of other methods of gaining life, and I do not think the additional evasion/lifelink is all that helpful.

You have a number of large creatures, all of which are pretty solid in their own right. However, I think the volume of high costed creatures might be a tad problematic. I would probably consider cutting a couple of them. Granted, I have not playedtested your deck sufficiently to see what provides the least utility. Here is what I would consider, but you should adjust based on your own experiences.

I am not sure about Harvester of Souls adds that much here--drawing cards is always nice, but you have a lot more exile effects than destroy ones.

Ashen Rider and Angel of Despair provides powerful, evasive bodies, but they lack lifelink synergies and are a tad expensive to cast.

Oh, and while looking at your list for things to cut, I thought of another suggestion: Suture Priest.

Mr.Beaver on Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Deck

I like the deck, but I have a few suggestions. You could add Exquisite Blood so you can go infinite with Sanguine Bond. You should also probably get rid of some of the more expensive creatures, like Wurmcoil Engine, Angel of Despair, Divinity of Pride, It That Betrays etc., in favor of more token generation, like Luminarch Ascension or Spirit Bonds and/or more ways to gain life, like Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Serra Ascendant, or Suture Priest.

cuelix on Teysa deck

I think b/w's targeted removal is the strongest and most versatile in the game so I would include all of these if I could:

maybe include a few more board wipes? resetting the board before you get to 7 mana for your general could be a good idea.

include Temple of the False God and Myriad Landscape in your land base to help you ramp up maybe Wayfarer's Bauble

Coldsteel Heart is another mana rock you could run.

I see you run Whispersilk Cloak the unblockable is a little redundant on teysa because she already has protection from creatures but maybe you like it for some of your other creatures. Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots are always safe includes. Gives you haste instead of unblockable and has cheaper casting and equip costs than the cloak!
