Angelic Chorus Discussion
1 month ago
I usually find Beacon of Immortality to be a trap. Unless you put it into a deck that is purely focused on life gain it tends to end up giving some dumb amount like 10 by the time it gets played...
Looks like most the good ones have been mentioned so I really don't have anything else to add. Of the ones mentioned my favorites are Venser's Journal, Angelic Chorus, Whip of Erebos, True Conviction.

Sure, while I agree certain redundancy in EDH is really important, that redundancy should be based on aspects of the specific build that heavily weight the board in your favor. When those areas are simply complimentary to your build, then there's a good chance there are better options available, especially as the corresponding CMC increases. To that end, here are six changes I noticed from your main and maybe board that I think would result in immediate improvements to your typical game.
REMOVE: Reach of Branches, Gravity Well, Behind the Scenes, Abundance, Angelic Chorus and Dusk / Dawn. Each of these cards is either reactionary or situational in nature, meaning they each can be a dead draw in certain scenarios. Also, the combined CMC of these six cards is 24, so average four mana cost, which is fairly spendy for a reactionary or situational spell.
REPLACE: Crenellated Wall, Rhox Faithmender, Eladamri's Call, Vindicate, Serra Ascendant and Tangle Angler. Instead of reactionary/situational spells, you get four creatures with a reasonable mana cost and additional utility value (flying/lifegain/early board state lead, infect/lure, double lifegain, +4 toughness pump) and an instant creature tutor and any permanent spot removal. Better yet, total CMC drops to 18, lowering your curve to an average of three mana cost per slot.
In my opinion, this gives you better options to your typical board without losing any synergy to your design. While Reach of Branches has great synergy, having 5 mana available is going to be a huge warning sign to your opponents, and if I'm keeping 5 mana available for an instant spell, I'd much rather have a bomb like Hatred that will essentially win the game right then if my attacker is unblocked (except in this deck of course). Hope that all makes sense - and good luck with the deck, I do dig the Doran build.

Hello! Awesome deck!
What I like:
Love the color, theme, and commander choice! Seem really fun!
Love the inclusion of Elspeth, Sun's Champion, obviously!
I like all the lands that ping you for mana! Very clever!
Some suggestions to put in:
The first thing I thought of was Cathars' Crusade and am shocked you don't have it already!
Dusk / Dawn for a one sided boardwipe.
Some to take out:
Angelic Chorus seems kinda expensive for what it does.
Spectral Searchlight can be replaced with better mana rocks. Unless there's some group-hug reason for it being here.
Sword of Vengeance kinda seems kinda random here.
Profound Journey is wayyy over costed, even with the rebound. White has better recursion options.
Hope some of this helps! Good luck!

"OH MY GOD BECKY! LOOK AT IT'S BUTT!" that's all that came to mind when I was looking through the deck list lol.
I like the deck, it's interesting to see someone play a non-defender version of Doran.
Just a few suggestions:

Since Crested Sunmare only cares about gaining life and not the quantity of those gains, I'd prefer to have consistent triggers over large triggers. For example, Healing Salve could be Ajani's Mantra for similar results. Quiet Disrepair and Recumbent Bliss are some similar options with other utility. This does make Lone Rider Flip a little worse, but I can't imagine it will be difficult to flip him in most games. If you really like the salves, maybe Isochron Scepter could work. I do also like the idea of profiting from creatures entering. The only non-creature options I found were Angelic Chorus and Leyline of Vitality, although I would probably go with the Leyline for the possible turn 0 play. Finally, I'd probably try to find some creature to play at 3 mana so the deck curves out better. Knight Exemplar is the first that comes to mind since it can boost the many knights already here.
