I think that you COULD splash G in exchange for the nonhuman creatures here, those being Angelic Overseer , Dearly Departed and Commander's Authority . In splashing Green, you get access to extremely powerful cards in the form of Tireless Tracker , Harmonize , Dromoka's Command , Hardened Scales , Avacyn's Pilgrim and of course the ever popular, ever relevant Collected Company .

I have a deck similar to this, splashing G to great effect here: Thalia's Horde of Humans.

On the other hand, if you don't want to splash G, Abzan Falconer could be a good finisher.

Any reason you're not running Lord of the Unreal or Angelic Overseer for Hexproof?

FlammendesSchwert on Angels of the Rainbow Bridge

Hi Leah and eyes2sky.

I'm from Germany: FlammendesSchwert means "burning blade" (angels have).

I also like Angels, myself playing them in legacy: Exil-Flicker (Legacy).

  1. Admonition Angel + with 4x Ghost Quarter and 4x Flagstones of Trokair you can instantly exile 2 target nonland permanents. I've therefore made a youtube-video for her if you like to watch :) Lobpreis dem Mahnenden Engel - Tribute to Admonition Angel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNM_v-mP-54

  2. Angelic Overseer + Xathrid Slyblade

  3. Baneslayer Angel

hoping some day there will be an avacyn angel planeswalker

Ill help you out a bit here, tappedout can get a bit confusing. The competative meter isnt an accurate way to find out how good/bad a deck is. Its not to show how competative a deck is.

What does it do? It shows wether cards you put in the deck are the best variant of its type.

For example Cancel will be less competative than Counterspell in modern. Dont feel bad for not having 100% because the meter doesnt understand what the deck is trying to do.

Now working on the deck itself you might want a direction, what do you want to achieve?

A fast deck that drops effecient threats to kill an opponent fast? This archytpe is generally called white weenie, Champion of the Parish and Thraben Inspector are already great cards. If you add 4x Honor of the Pure suddenly these guys get very scary fast!

Or do u want a slower deck with more power?

Angelic Overseer is great if thats the case. Youd want stuff that keeps you alive long untill you have the mana to cast the big stuff and win from there.

Add ur vision of the deck into the description so people could help out :)

Also drop down to 24 lands as of now. 25 is quite overkill. If ever you go the white weenie route 21-22 is fine.

Whats the budget? Theres plents of good kill spells out there better than Rebuke . If you have some savings the best is Path to Exile . If you are low on budget thats fine too! Pacifism is very good at making opponents cards useless.

Hello dragonforce60

I was considering flip Gideon for awhile, and I actually did pull one a while back, I may add it in just because of its early game presence. I do agree that a lot of the early game "good stuff" like champion and hand-disruption would be more beneficial. Angelic Overseer looks to be a fantastic late-game option that sticks to the board with all of the smaller humans, good suggestion!

I kept crusaders at 2 because I am a sucker for double strikers, especially with boosts from Always Watching and Thalia's Lieutenant . Again it is my first time making a modern deck and I am researching all the tools that can be used. Great list, thanks for the +1

triproberts12 Lyra, once I can afford her, will be in the deck. Using her as commander is intriguing. I haven't updated the deck yet, but I was thinking of using Radiant, Archangel as commander over Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

dragonforce60 I was actually just looking into Fumigate . I do have a Terminus that I could add as well. I'm just stuck on what to take out for it. [Resolute Archangel] is going to be added to the deck when I get a chance to update it. I think I have Angel of Invention , I think I skipped over the life link part. Do I have enough Humans to make Angelic Overseer work to her full potential? I don't know. Worth looking into, but Aegis Angel would be the better of the two, wouldn't they?

Awesome tips! I picked up a few Hardened Scales, replaced Angelic Skirmisher with Angelic Overseer, and filled out my playlet of Champion of the Parish. I'll update the list, but keep the suggestions coming, loving the help!

I'm also in favor of dropping Mardu Hateblade for another copy of Champion of the Parish. Did you mean Angelic Overseer instead of Angelic Skirmisher? The skirmisher's not bad, but at 6 mana and not a human, it just doesn't play well here.

If your budget allows it, swapping your comes-into-play-tapped lands for Fetchlands would be a great upgrade. If you're looking for +1/+1 counters and returning small creatures to the battlefield, then I"d recommend Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants over Liliana in the planeswalker slot.
