Angelic Accord Discussion
1 day ago
I adore Trostani, Selesnya's Voice as a commander. This was one of my own first "good" commander decks and can be made very powerful on a pretty low budget. I'll name off some of the best cards for the deck here.
Phyrexian Processor: This is just stupid good. Wait until you have 8 open mana and your commander in play. Cast this card, and once it resolves pay almost all of your life into it (leave just enough not to get burnt out at instant speed, just in case). Then immediately activate the ability, generating a massive token and gaining back all the life you just spent instantly. You now have access to a 30+/30+ token that you can populate or generate a new one from the artifact every turn, gaining you a ton of life as well. Congrats, you pretty much can't die to combat damage except from commanders anymore.
Angelic Accord / Crested Sunmare : Gain life from something, make a token with a nice keyword at the end of the turn and gain extra life. Populate that token during your opponent's turn to gain more life, and get another token from this card at the end of that turn as well. This should churn out about 2 good tokens between each of your turns not including what you get from populating, quickly getting out of hand.
Darien, King of Kjeldor: Whenever you get hit, you get that many tokens. Whenever you make tokens, you gain life equal to their toughness. You now can not take damage unless it kills you in a single hit, and people running into you anyways gains you tokens.
Storm Herd: I'm usually in the camp of "Go tall tokens" with Trostani, but this card is the exception. Nothing ends a game like 40+ flying tokens and doubling your life total.
Aetherflux Reservoir: It's a good idea to have a backup win strategy, especially if you have any turbo-fog or other pillow fort decks in your meta. Pay 50 life to kill an opponent if very doable with Trostani.
Ajani Goldmane: Gaining a couple life isn't a threat. Making your tokens bigger and vigilant is situationally good, but isn't why we're here. Getting to 6 loyalty ang generating a token that's power and toughness fluxuates with your life total means you get to double your life total and the power/toughness of all these tokens every time you populate. Just try to fly under the radar before that.
Rootborn Defenses: Get an extra populate trigger, but more importantly save yourself from a board wipe. Keep your big tokens in play, and kill everyone in a single shot while the shields are down.

Sorry for the double post, but I just realized that I never addressed your question in the forum (I am still a bit tired right now so I am not firing on all cylinders haha)! I personally think what you are trying to accomplish (soul-sisters + tap/untap/tokens) will work. However, I think you should approach it as 70-30 (60-40 at most) in favor of untap/tap/tokens and soul-sisters. Since Emmara is your engine, you want to make sure she is the focus of your deck and runs smoothly. The life-gain part and the associated payoffs should all be incidental and not require much set up. For example, Archangel of Thune is fantastic because she doesn't require much input, but she plays excellent into your token strategy. A card like Angelic Accord however seems like too much of an input and will be inconsistent. Replacing that with a card like Divine Visitation gives you more in return, and will consistently work well with your engine. I hope that makes sense!

First of all, I like your idea of gaining life in tandem with card draw. Life for the sake of life buys time, but that is about it.
Second, your mana curve is not bad either (and congrats on keeping it 60 cards!). You have a rough equivalency of white and blue cards paired with a rough equivalency of land.
That being said, I see a lot of cards of which you only have one copy. There is a value in being flexible, but you also must have a pretty solid strategy. Gaining life and drawing cards is great, but you have to have something to do with it. So, I would cut some of the cards with one copy (consider how often they actually come up in your games). Put 4 copies of a card (1 drawn about every 15 cards) that you want to see each and every game, 2 copies of cards you want most games, and 1 copy of cards that give you a good benefit even if the opponent destroys it the next turn (although counterspells help that a little). If there is a one-copy card you just cant convince yourself to get rid of, put it in your sideboard and try it out for a few games.
I would cut (blank) for the following reasons:
Evolving wilds: You generally don't need that in a 2 color deck, you'd rather have an untapped land. Pristine Talisman: Unless you can get 2 or 4 copies in your deck, if not, sideboard it. Felidar Cub: sideboard it and replace it with another Erase. Djeru's Renunciation: Replace with a "Bounce" Spell like Boomerang. Works offensively and defensively
As far as card suggestions go, pick your poison.... More: Mana Leak, Rune Snag, Reliquary Tower Some: Divinity of Pride, Soul Warden, Suture Priest, Angelic Accord, Tranquil Cove, Dictate of Kruphix, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rapid Hybridization, Spellbook, Whispersilk Cloak, Aqueous Form
TL;DR Don't build the deck too "flat" by having only one copy of essential cards, sideboard what you cant cut, and add some of these low-cost options to the deck. Remember: a lean deck is a successful deck. You can also get some good benefits from Scroll Thief if you can give it lifelink. Paired with Aqueous Form, you get a good glimpse of your top card before you draw it. Mana flooded? Scry it away! Mana thirsty? Scry away the high cost spell you would draw!

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.

Shield of the Oversoul seems a bit redundant. If lifegain isn't a major theme of the deck, then you might consider cutting Angelic Accord. Angelic Destiny seems like a bit of win-more, as well. You already have lots of big creatures, and making just one of them a little bit bigger probably means you're already winning. Oath of Nissa doesn't seem to do much for you either, once it hits the battlefield, and if you are wanting to look at your library more, Mirri's Guile or Sylvan Library would be much better cards. You have a few anthems in there as well, like Serra Aviary and Radiant Destiny. Seeing as the bulk of the creatures you run are already 5/5 or thereabouts when they come into play, the anthems seem a bit redundant, and you could probably substitute other cards for them. Zendikar Resurgent would be very good, another Mirari's Wake that can also draw you a card.
Hope this helps.

Vault of the Archangel Wouldn't hurt either. I've been trying to build a deck like this that is built around Angelic Accord and Bubbling Cauldron ever since they came out back in 2014 so I'm very familiar with these kinds of cards

I had Angelic Accord but it had to be cut to fit other cards.
