Angel of Finality Discussion

I use all those same tricks in my Budget Commander League deck Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH.
It's difficult because the A/D/D use the same abilities so the obvious Torpor Orb is out.
Leyline of the Void is the best, if it's in your opening hand then It's CMC0, otherwise CMC4 is quite reasonable. Shuts down the recursive component of the deck. Bojuka Bog is a classic. Rest in Peace / Grafdigger's Cage but since you have some recursion too might hurt you on occasion. With either you could combo with Helm of Obedience . Some others Angel of Finality (Angel). Nihil Spellbomb (Draw). Keep in mind that Leyline of the Void also means Meren of Clan Nel Toth isn't getting experience counters since the creatures are exiling not "die"ing.
Cauldron of Souls might also help, but they can see it coming, and CMC5. Cauldron Haze is a bit more tricky. Archangel Avacyn Flip but doesn't help against Sacrifice (shes no Sigarda, Host of Herons ). Teferi's Protection works good.
Or just haste + Master of Cruelties him lol, if the board is clear.

I just put this deck together after a long time of mulling it over, i'll be uploading my own list soon. Some staples you're missing include Angel of Finality and Angelic Field Marshal , those two can be good if you want to stay budget. If you can drop a fat 100 on this deck you should definitely pick up the 'hate bear' angels, they might not be very good for your casual environment though. Linvala, Keeper of Silence and Iona, Shield of Emeria are both very good. Dawnbreak Reclaimer is a stupid good card and isn't expensive.

Mark for Death I think is a hidden gem for combat deck including red. As for Angel's, you have Subjugator Angel & Sunblast Angel that work well together, esp if you include a blink package. Angel of Condemnation can be used both offensively and defensively. Angel of Finality for gy hate, Brisella for shiggles, Angelic Arbiter to slow things down.

Panharmonicon to double triggers, Resolute Archangel (could probably replace filigree) to reset your life total, Angel of Finality for those pesky GY decks, Diluvian Primordial to cast your opponents spells, and lastly Sunblast Angel + Subjugator Angel because with Brago your creatures have Psuedo Vigilence, and boardwipes for days, theirs not yours. Hope this helps a bit, I know it's all over the place but you'll love it I'm sure ;). Enjoy

Props for not going easy mode with Edgar Markov .
As for suggestions, the best thing I think you could do to improve this deck is to make it more explosive. The way to do that would be to add free sacrifice outlets, along with creatures that provide you multiple bodies.
For sac outlets, Viscera Seer , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodthrone Vampire , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Cartel Aristocrat , Blood Bairn , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , Vampire Aristocrat , and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are good vampire options. Sadistic Hypnotist , Dimir House Guard , Spawning Pit , Hidden Stockpile , Mind Slash are also good. What's important is that you can go off all at once. You want to sac a bunch of creatures to grow Elenda and sac her the same turn.
The other challenge you'll want to keep in mind is that Elenda, the Dusk Rose must go to your graveyard to get the trigger. That means If you want to recast her, you'll have to reanimate her or exile her from your graveyard. Bojuka Bog , Relic of Progenitus , Angel of Finality , God-Pharaoh's Gift (and Gate to the Afterlife !), Skeletal Scrying , Rescue from the Underworld , Necromancer's Covenant , Cremate , Seance , Planar Void , Goryo's Vengeance , Postmortem Lunge , Purgatory . Despoiler of Souls , Mistmoon Griffin , Purify the Grave , Offalsnout , Coffin Purge , Drudge Spell , Cryptwailing , Treacherous Vampire , and Consecrate / Consume , Angelic Renewal , Karmic Guide , Reveillark (the prior two being an infinite loop combo), Dread Return , Nim Deathmantle (there are combos with it and Ashnod's Altar , which you also want), Palace Siege , Bloodline Necromancer , Profane Command , Unburial Rites , Faith's Reward , Ever After , Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Hell's Caretaker . Apprentice Necromancer , Wake the Dead , Second Sunrise , Infernal Offering , Corpse Dance , Zombify , Resurrection , No Rest for the Wicked , and Footsteps of the Goryo , are all good options.
The final piece of the puzzle is making your sacrifices devastating. Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Grave Pact , Black Market , Harvester of Souls , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex , Zulaport Cutthroat , Open the Graves , Blade of the Bloodchief , Ogre Slumlord , Athreos, God of Passage , and Dark Prophecy will help with that.

I tried Resolute Archangel and found it underwhelming. Its an expensive 4/4 and you just need to not be at zero life to win. Incidental life gain is great but I had a couple times where I pulled this late when I needed removal and honestly going back to 40 still didn't save me. I have found Angel of Jubilation and Angel of Finality more useful.
And this may be a deck where Crovax, Ascendant Hero could shine.

Also, I'm trying to keep in mind Kaya, Orzhov Usurper's +1 which relies on cards being in the graveyard.
I've tested Deadeye Tracker, it's costly and too slow in this build. At times may even rob Kaya's +1 from being optimal.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim would fit better in a deck that utilizes lifegain more efficiently.
Banisher Priest would be effective side board material to replace Kitesail Freebooter against more creature heavy decks. 3 Fatal Push and 4 Path to Exile may be to much creature only removal against some matchups.
Angel of Finality may have a place in the mainboard. Thanks!
The remaining cards seem too high cost for the early game control this deck seems to be pushing.
Yes, but all the early game hand disruption and creature removal makes it hard to not take advantage of those cards rapidly filling the graveyard with Gurmag Angler or a similar card. Kaya will not be drawn many games, unfortunately... so Gurmag kinda makes the deck less onesided.
Thanks for the insight! Never really focused much on a exile strategy, and you brought some great cards to my attention.

Mmm I see in that case, than I would definitely recommend a lot of the fast mana rocks. If you can get your hands on them. I think you already know them but I'll list them just for the sake of it. Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Mox Diamond , Chrome Mox , Grim Monolith , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Pearl Medallion . I would also recommend some protection spells or recursion spells Faith's Reward , Rebuff the Wicked , Silence , Lapse of Certainty , and Teferi's Protection . If you want to keep the Angel theme some good angels are Angel of Jubilation , Lyra Dawnbringer , Archangel of Tithes , Platinum Angel , Baneslayer Angel , Emeria Shepherd , Angel of Finality , and Karmic Guide .
Hope that gives some insight! :P
