Angel of Jubilation Discussion

I have been pretty happy with the deck performance so far, but I'd like to try a couple of small changes and see how they work out.
abandonding for now the side strategy of inflicting damage to opponents for having cards in their hands: I had already took out Black Vise , so I'll be removing also the Sword of War and Peace , as in any case I'm not attacking a lot.
limiting further the possibilities left to opponents to trigger their combos by having Angel of Jubilation preventing them from sacrificing creatures.
decreasing the mana cost of my spells: Jace's Sanctum was already reducing of 1 CMC the cost of instants and sorceries, but thanks to Sapphire Medallion and Pearl Medallion now also enchantments, creatures and planeswalkers will be 1 CMC cheaper (further reducing the costs of instant and sorceries as well).

Resolute Archangel has saved me a lot of times, she is in the deck only because the restorate life ability... its a good card to discard in early game and retrieve in late game with Bruna.
The idea in the deck is retrieving my creatures from the graveyard "cheating" mana costs and be able to do a boardwipe and get a good creature back with the commander or other spells. Mistveil Plains put the card on the bottom of my library... not helps a lot( in my opinion) Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a good card. definitively i will put in the deck!

I'd take Journey to Nowhere over Pacifism , there are a lot of creatures who hurt you just by being on the battlefield without attacking or blocking anyone. Luminarch Ascension seems like a card that's good in multiplayer where you have a lot of opponents' end phases for it to trigger in and a propensity for stale mates, so if you're playing that way a lot it's a good card. In normal matchups, though, I don't see it doing much for you. Instead of Ghostly Prison , I'd bring in Archangel of Tithes , she's a bit more expensive for you and not as expensive for your opponent, but she's more versatile and comes with a 3/5 body which can really do wonders.
Darksteel Citadel doesn't seem to do a whole lot of good for you, and the occasional life-gain from Seraph Sanctuary is really also something you need to have a payoff for for it to be worth it. Maybe just get some extra plains, or you could get Eiganjo Castle or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers . You also seem to have rather more forests than I'd really recommend, but good dual lands are expensive, so I get you :) If you can afford them, I recommend Temple Garden , Horizon Canopy , Windswept Heath , Razorverge Thicket and Wooded Bastion .
Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems way too expensive, I'd get Birds of Paradise or more Noble Hierarch s if you can afford it, otherwise Avacyn's Pilgrim , Beastcaller Savant or Bloom Tender can do good work too. I'm also not sure what Kytheon's Irregulars ' role in your deck is, again let me recommend Archangel of Tithes , or alternatively Angel of Jubilation , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , or Indomitable Archangel or Gisela, the Broken Blade . Baneslayer Angel is a fine card, but unless you're facing demons and dragons regularly, Lyra Dawnbringer is probably better. Her ability to be a lord for other angels is really nice.
Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are super powerful bombs, but I'm not sure you have enough ramp to play them consistently. Of course, you know your local meta better than I do, so you be the judge of that yourself :) I'd recommend thinking about dropping them, though.
And last, a shameless plug. I've been playing with an angel deck of my own at my local FNM and been doing OK, it's been mono-white, white-green-red and is now just white-green. You can check the latest iteration here if you're looking for a somewhat different take on this whole business: Noble Angels

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.

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

Hey, consider Mistveil Plains and Tithe? Mistveil is a way to put a spell back into your library and then cast it again with Sunforger, you can loop the same spell. Tithe can tutor for Mistveil and best of all be cast with Sunforger.
Angels to consider adding:
Other cards to consider:
- Gamble: unconditional tutor for Boros
- Chaos Warp: unconditional permanent removal that can be cast with Sunforger
- Mass Hysteria: give all Angels haste for one mana
- Urabrask the Hidden: give Angels haste, take away haste from your opponents
- Pearl Medallion
Cards to consider cutting:
- Light of the Legion
- Serra's Guardian
- Subjugator Angel
- Voice of All
- Bruna, the Fading Light
- Gisela, the Broken Blade
- Whispersilk Cloak
- Sword of the Animist
- Always Watching
- 1x Plains
I would cut Bruna and Gisela. There's better Angels for their mana costs. The fun factor of playing them together is to meld, but it's not consistent enough without having many ways to tutor for Angels that you'll have both on the battlefield at the same time.
Good luck with your deck

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

I agree with what sagramore is saying, pick a theme with how you want to construct your deck and go from there. From the comments and the way you want to go, which is going wide than stick to anthem like effects and equipments that will help you build your army and ramp.
Since you said you are on a tight budget I'll list some cards that are less than $5 that might be able to help you out.
Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Farseek, Faith's Reward, Wrath of God, Hunter's Insight, Relic Seeker, Auriok Steelshaper, Steelshaper Apprentice, Angel of Jubilation, Remember the Fallen, Cathars' Crusade, Behemoth Sledge, Qasali Pridemage, Leonin Warleader, Prowling Serpopard, Reclamation Sage, and Krosan Grip.
Hope some of the cards listed would be able to help you out!
