Yeah together we have both progressed our decks extremely far! Ironically he is running a black deck, and he has also finally taken full advantage of sacrifices, card/card removal, life gain drain and now so how Eldrazi.
After recently play testing my deck a couple times I completely agree with you about Archangel's Light. It doesn't make sense for me because I'm always "praying" for the next big bomb or the right card on my card draw. The sideboard for me at the moment is basically cards I can't decide if I should add or not but still consider to be an extremely good for this deck. Hence why I'm here for advice!
So the thing about Lumbering Battlement is I consider it to be a protection card from me. I use it like I would use Faith's Reward or Sudden Disappearance , expect if no one tries to attack me after that then I get a free swing in before board wiping and yet simultaneously getting all my creatures back. Helm of host I have mixed feeling on that because it has actually won games for me. Depending on who I equip it to, like Lyra Dawnbringer which just makes all angels stronger for every time it creates a token or Exquisite Archangel I can sacrifice a token instead of the original angel, Angelic Skirmisher for the first strike and vigilance, Aegis Angel granting all angels close to indestructible or even artifacts, Angel of Serenity can basically exile my whole graveyard or opponents field. I see your point about it being a nine cost but in tell my friends get smart about trying to destroy it might as well keep it. Angelheart Vial Single handily made me win game but I agree it will also go in exchange for Pristine Talisman . I will defiantly try out Mana Tithe again sadly I just haven't used in game but I'm sure you are not wrong about its use!
Thank you heyzeus_ for fallowing my updates! Your support has really helped me shaped this deck into what it is today! I got my first copy on this deck so it's made me extremely happy and proud, just can't believe how much I've put into this deck though... but it has been worth it and of course I will continue to make it better. What are your thoughts on Ugin's Nexus considering I board-wipe and get ride of artifacts.

Hey, I'm also in process of cashing out, of Standard. I can't take Wizards bullshit with that format anymore, but I'm still going to play Commander :)
I make and play causal budget multiplayer Commander decks. I try to limit cards to $6 or less each. Of course there are some exceptions mostly lands/tutors, but for the most part I stick to this rule. I love Commander because I can buy a single staple card and then use that card in all my decks.
This is currently what I'm doing is buying singles of all the budget staple cards for Commander. It's especially helpful with lands because lands take up the largest portion of cost of a Commander deck, but I only need a single copy of a land which I can then use in all my decks. The cost of lands is one reason why I'm leaving Standard. I can no longer justify the cost of playable manabases, there are not enough options.
Some staples in Bant colors as well as other Angels to consider:
- Mystic Remora
- Smothering Tithe
- Swords to Plowshares
- Eladamri's Call
- Mystical Tutor
- Arcane Denial
- Beast Within
- Return to Dust
- Nature's Claim
- Supreme Verdict
- Day of Judgment
- Detention Sphere
- Sublime Archangel
- Stoic Angel
- Karmic Guide
- Shalai, Voice of Plenty
- Angel of Serenity
- Luminarch Ascension
Jenara can grow her own power with her ability this makes her a good attacker and an excellent source of Commander damage to your opponents. Exalted is a way to take more advantage of Jenara by giving her additional power as long as she's the only creature attacking.
I'm offering all these other cards suggestions, but in my opinion priority for upgrades to consider here are the lands and mana production.

Hey again, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Consider cards that can arrange the top of your library? These cards let you more easily reveal a creature to cheat into play with Mayael. If your friend's budget is $1000 then he/she can afford Scroll Rack and/or Sensei's Divining Top and/or Sylvan Library . These three cards are powerful repeatable ways to arrange the top of your library. Enlightened Tutor can tutor for one of these cards. Other cards that do this are creature tutors that put the creature you search for on top of your library: Worldly Tutor , Congregation at Dawn and Sylvan Tutor .
Other cards to consider:
- Iona, Shield of Emeria : in sideboard, if you have it put it main deck.
- Herald of War : in sideboard, if you have it put it main deck.
- Resplendent Angel
- Angel of Serenity
- Nature's Lore
- Defense of the Heart
- Sacred Foundry
- Stomping Ground
- Windswept Heath
- Wooded Foothills
- Battlefield Forge
- Karplusan Forest
- Spire Garden
- Bountiful Promenade
- Mana Vault
Good luck with your deck.

Adarkar Valkyrie and Exclusion Ritual are the only cards I can see right now that aren't too helpful. Here are some suggestions: Oracle of Dust , Murk Strider , Ulamog's Reclaimer , Strionic Resonator , Naban, Dean of Iteration , Reality Acid , Wall of Omens , Meteor Golem , Nevermaker , Angel of Serenity , Diluvian Primordial , Flickerwisp , War Priest of Thune , Ichor Wellspring , Mycosynth Wellspring , Trial of Knowledge , Harbinger of the Tides , Merchant of Secrets , Champion of Wits , Deadeye Navigator , Sower of Temptation , Exclusion Mage .

Thanks SomaCruz, lots of great suggestions here. I really wrestled with the angel decisions for this deck - there's so many amazing ones. I debated as to whether or not I should include each of the ones you've mentioned so I'll try to explain the 'why' behind my omissions.
Angel of Jubilation is excellent, love the casting cost and lord effect but she didn't make the cut because I need to be able to pay life for one of my win conditions, Aetherflux Reservoir . Angel of Condemnation and Angel of Sanctions are good removal options, but ultimately I decided that I'm running enough removal. I may revisit that line of thinking if it becomes a recurring problem, perhaps replace Angel of Serenity with one of these cheaper, less win-more options. Now having said that, looking at Admonition Angel again, yeah. That needs to be in here. You're also right about Angelic Skirmisher so I think I'll take that out and swap in Angelic Field Marshal , good call. Sunblast Angel is awesome and is indeed in here already. I thought about Karmic Guide and Dawnbreak Reclaimer as recursion options but I am actually comfortable with the current recursion amount ( Bruna, the Fading Light , Emeria Shepherd , Reya Dawnbringer , Defy Death , Buried Ruin & Emeria, The Sky Ruin ).
Dawn of Hope and Smothering Tithe make a lot of sense and should probably be in here, I'm just not certain what to cut for them yet. I'm luke warm on Geier Reach Sanitarium and Inventors' Fair in here but I see what you're getting at, likewise with Weathered Wayfarer & Expedition Map .
Thank you for the good ideas and let me know when/if you post your Lyra deck, I'd be keen to check it out.

Normally people between 36-40 lands, right? I'd say this one wants 38. Couple especially good ones: Myriad Landscape and Ash Barrens. If you're serious about the token theme, maybe also Westvale Abbey Flip.
I really like your choice of a bunch of modal cards (with odd mana costs, obviously) that can do a bunch of different things. I would add a couple more - Righteous Confluence is less popular than the blue and black ones but still pretty good (life sometimes matters a lot in Commander, this gains 15).
I STRONGLY suggest the Scry temples from Theros block. Temple of Silence, Temple of Deceit &Temple of Enlightenment all help you control the top of your deck and your colors. Isolated Watchtower is also pretty freakin good in your deck as green decks will often ramp, so it should often be live.
Some pretty good ones from EDHrec that contribute to your strategy: Prognostic Sphinx, Windreader Sphinx Angel of Serenity Luminate Primordial and especially Conundrum Sphinx Penance and Future Sight. Those last three, I really would try to find room for (holy damn, especially Penance).
Then a couple general comments - you should probably try to include 2-3 sweeper effects and maybe 3-5 point removal (for a creature, I mean) effects, and a few effects that hit other permanent types (like Anguished Unmaking and Utter End). I think you'll probably want to include most of the cards I mention above that mention card draw, because it's REAL important to not get stuck on lands in EDH, and card draw's really a good way to avoid that.
A few cards that I think would be good cuts: Dowsing Dagger Flip, maybe Anointed Procession depending (you probably would want 20-30 token effects to justify this), Aphetto Alchemist, Lich Lord of Unx also because it's expensive, Master Trinketeer which has an activated ability that's way too damn expensive, Retrofitter Foundry which again is way too expensive, Sram's Expertise is probably too low impact - Righteous Confluence would be a great replacement here, for example, Connive / Concoct and Discovery / Dispersal are both a lil underpowered too.
Those are some thoughts for now - looks real fun though, isn't this commander's complexity so nifty?
