Would you consider some of the eternalize/embalm cards from amonkhet?

Angel of Sanctions could be powerful

xxCopperheadx Thanks for checking out my deck. History of Benalia is amazing in this but it's just so damn expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty has been amazing in my deck, she pairs well with Dauntless Bodyguard if they try and destroy her and she shuts down one of the biggest threats against this deck: Settle the Wreckage. A lot of people are using Lyra Dawnbringer but I prefer Angel of Sanctions in that slot since I'm trying to remove blockers to get knights through. Kwende is great when you've been able to get the knights of malice/grace out first. Good luck!

Sorry for the double post but I just thought of something that might be fun. Panharmonicon has FANTASTIC synergy with trespassers curse/authority when you have fairgrounds warden out. When warden dies the 2 creatures that are under it re-enter and drain the opponent for 4 and you gain 4. Panharmonicon is also pretty good with kitesail freebooter. If you went this direction you might consider adding Angel of Sanctions

Lyra Dawnbringer may just only be good on her own cause she is basically a Baneslayer Angel but what if we could use her even more because of her Other angels you control gains +1/+1 and lifelink clause?

Dominaria other angels than Lyra Dawnbringer are Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Serra Angel

Amonkeths angels are Angel of Sanctions, Winged Shepherd Seraph of the Suns, Angel of Sanctions and Angel of Condemnation

Kaladesh Angel of Invention and Wispweaver Angel and Exquisite Archangel.

We have Oketra's Monument which can make all angels cheeper and fill the board with 1/1 tokens which can block early game creatures which also have synergy with Angel of Invention and Benalish Marshal.

soo maybe a mono white control deck?

i've tinkered with a deck with this theme but still what do you think are angels too expensive and it will be to clunky or will it be the second coming of Baneslayer Angel?

Here's a link to a midrange angel deck that recently one an online PTQ. I'm basing my own g/w angel deck off this shell.

I would point out that he argues against Seal Away in favor of Cast Out, even though seal is cheaper, it's much more limited in scope and versatility. Shanna, Sisay’s Legacy is a really good legendary card with this deck since you run so many creatures (he had three in his deck, but I would argue that two would be enough).

Heroic Intervention always goes in my sideboard since I prefer Blossoming Defense's speed and +2/+2. Intervention is great if they're running something like Vraska's Contempt and like to target your planeswalkers, but you're only running three of them so I don't see that being much of an issue.

Steelleaf and that Benalish guy are tough to run in a multi-color deck. The reason mono-color decks are on the rise is that they run cards like this for their aggro speed: a turn two steelleaf in a mono green is killer, and while there is the POTENTIAL for that in this deck, you're going mid-range so it shouldn't really be something you're trying for. I would pull both of them in favor of Shanna and more Shalai's (three of her and three Lyra is a good composition for this deck).

I've fooled around with Oath of Ajani in other decks and I really don't like the card. By the time you play it, your board is already set up for a win or you've already got the planeswalkers out or you draw it in your starting hand and now you've got a wasted turn-two option as you pump your elf to make him a 2/2 ... there are better cards IMO.

If you're gonna run a saga at all, I would do Song of Freyalise since it helps with ramping and get's you the desired +1/+1 effect you'll be taking out with that oath and Benalish guy.

Your gearhulk seems like a forced fit into this deck: turn five you want an angel on the board and not a gearhulk and you've got enough pumping spells/creatures that I don't think he's really necessary.

I plan to run a full set of Angel of Sanctions, 3x of Lyra and Shalai, a full set of Merfolk Branchwalker's and Jadelight Ranger's. I'll send you a link to my version once it's done as well

Super glad angels are a thing again in standard. +1 one from me :)

firyunda I hadn't thought of Angel of Sanctions but I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip

As for Iona, Shield of Emeria, I am making the concious choice to not play her. She's just not fun and a generally "feels bad" card.
