Angel of the Dire Hour Discussion

Cool deck! +1 from me.
Mind if I suggest a few things?
Teferi's Protection is expensive but a superb way to save yourself if something goes horribly wrong.
I am not sure you are tribal enough to be running Vanquisher's Banner , likewise Skullclamp seems out of place here. I think you would do better with more wheel effects or Mask of Memory for card draw.

How about considering Luminarch Ascension . Great angel token maker, esp. with all the dead mana you may have in late game.

So you're the reason my Isperia list is festering down at #3...
Can't help but love the deck, though! +1 from me! A few suggestions:
I'd swap out Disperse for Expel from Orazca or Unsubstantiate . Angel of the Dire Hour is a great one to have in your toolbox. Angel of Sanctions as well. Vendilion Clique is on the pricey side but it's one of the best recent additions I've made. Tutorable hand disruption that doubles as a peek effect is quite strong. Also, great to see someone else janky enough to run Moonring Island !

Hey I really like this list. How has it performed for you? For me personally I would probably run 38 lands with a mana curve like this, do you find that you get stuck often? How has minds eye performed? In my experience it is really slow. Its sort of like saying, do I want to take 2 turns off to draw cards. Sometimes the answer is yes. However with all of your removal you can probably make that work pretty easily. I know you mentioned wanting to get a teferis protection in, highly recommend it, its every bit as awesome as you think. If you are looking for a few cards to cut heres what I think may be the weakest performing without having seen everything in action, but you may have some specific meta reason which makes them better than I give them credit for. Im not a huge fan of Wild ricochet, because it requires holding untapped mana, which decks like this don't usually do. Ive never had amazing results with Sunblast Angel, sometimes kills 1 or 2 creatures, but often doesn't anything. I really like Angel of the Dire Hour tends to do the same thing much better, just that you are a bit crowded on 7 drops. Zetalpa is cool, do you find you cast it often? Is it worth it? It might be a bit too big, but on the other hand you have a lot of ramp so maybe its fine. Treasure Hunter also seems pretty meh, I would probably run a Buried Ruin in its place. How has resolute archangel been? Anyways those are a few of my thoughts, Id love to hear some of yours.

Also, while these probably don't belong on the list, cards that do damage to all attacking creatures seem like a potential add. Such as - Wind Shear and Sandstorm I'm sure there are lots others, but I won't continue since they don't really fit.

Hi, I'm also a big fan of incorporating politics in EDH!
Here are some cards with a political element you might consider:
Nova Pentacle can disincentivize opponents from attacking you if you're controlling no creatures, because then the opponents have to target some of their own creatures.
Duelist's Heritage is a nice political card. It can incentivize your opponents to attack another opponent instead of you.
You might also like Seht's Tiger.

I have 2 Aurelia decks also. This one and I switch between equipments voltron, and the all creature build ...so really i just need to build a 3rd one but some people may think thats excessive. This one is great for games that go a little longer, would avoid it for faster metas though.
Gisela, the Broken Blade was in here for a while, but im still tweaking the list a bit. Id like to get the angel count back up a little bit, it seems to have dropped off for more removal and ramp. The truth is theres just so many angels that I want to run its tough to get them all in. In a perfect world there would be room to add Gisela, the Broken Blade, Firemane Avenger, Seraph of the Sword, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Angel of Finality, and Angel of the Dire Hour. I have been giving some thought to Brisela though, would love to get that going. Ive got 3 or 4 cards I want to cut, so we'll see what kinds of things I can get into those slots. Another thing to think about also, is focusing on life gain with things like Dawn of Hope, Angelic Accord etc. That would definitely be a reason to use Gisela.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice was until I started playing against Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and realized how important it is to have a form of life gain in the deck, may also add in Mirrorpool or Bramble Sovereign so I can utilize the populate part too
