Arcane Signet Discussion

Hey, good creation and nice Secret Lair Blightsteel :)
You should consider buying the new Zendikar Rising Commander Land's Wrath precon. In the $20 precon are several cards that can improve your deck:
- Omnath, Locus of Rage: finisher, repeatable Elemental tokens with landfall.
- Zendikar's Roil: repeatable Elemental tokens with landfall.
- Arcane Signet: two drop Rainbow mana rock.
- Mina and Denn, Wildborn: play an additional land on your turn and return a land to give Omnath trample.
- Admonition Angel: repeatable exile opponent permanents with landfall.
- Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor: repeatable +1/+1 counters with landfall.
- Waker of the Wilds: mana sink to turn lands into Elementals.
- Emeria Shepherd: recur or reanimate permanents with landfall.
- Evolution Sage: repeatable proliferate with landfall which is good with +1/+1 counters.
- Harrow: land ramp, puts two lands onto the battlefield to trigger Omnath and landfall.
- Kodama's Reach: land ramp.
- Return of the Wildspeaker: draw.
- Inspiring Call: protection and draw.
- Myriad Landscape
- Naya Panorama
This is a casual budget Elemental interaction, Risen triggers whenever any Elemental you control ETB which includes tokens. If you reveal a land with Risen then you put it onto the battlefield and create another Elemental which triggers Risen again. This can be a lot of card advantage with Elementals.
Another budget Elemental interaction that uses +1/+1 counters. Ancient is a good card for counters in multiplayer Commander because it triggers whenever any player casts a spell. The mana that Omnath makes can be used to activate Marath and you can keep doing this as long as you can keep putting counters on Marath. Omnath, Locus of the Roil, Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor, Felidar Retreat, Evolution Sage can all be repeatable sources of counters onto Marath with landfall.
Some budget lands to consider adding to improve the manabase:
- Exotic Orchard
- Jungle Shrine
- Mystic Monastery
- Kessig Wolf Run: it's less than $1, mana sink to give Omnath pump and trample.
- Yavimaya Coast
- Battlefield Forge
- Shivan Reef
- Cinder Glade
- Canopy Vista
- Prairie Stream
The Pain lands: Coast, Forge, Reef you pay 1 life to make colored mana, but that's fine in 40 life Commander and since Omnath is a life gaining engine with landfall. Can get these lands for less than $1 each. The Battle lands: Glade, Vista, Stream would help the manabase since they have good interaction with lots of basic lands and you can get them for less than $2 each.
Good luck with your deck.

Aether Vial isn't mana ramp, nor do you want to rely on it for big dragons. Gauntlet of Power costs too much mana to be good ramp (you want to stick to cmc 3 or less) plus it doesn't color fix, and only works with basics (which you don't have much room for in a 5c deck). imo, Mox Amber is also too slow when all your legendaries are 5+ mana. it won't be able to produce mana until after you've already reached a point where you can cast your dragons anyway. you want stuff like Arcane Signet and Darksteel Ingot, as well as Farseek which can grab dual lands.
as for lands, a 5c mana base is easy if your group allows proxies. 1 of each fetch land, original duals, and shock lands gives you 30 lands. the rest you can fill out with rainbow lands like Command Tower, and Cavern of Souls. stay away from lands that enter tapped.

I like this deck, I've always wanted a red/blue wizard deck and this one has a lot of potential. So I do want to disclaimer and say that my suggestions are not criticisms, and also I did not consider your budget or your collection lol. Lastly this is suggestions with just a cursory glance. Azami, Lady of Scrolls is pretty amazing in any wizard deck. Sol Ring, Izzet Signet, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Wayfarer's Bauble, and Talisman of Creativity are all low cost mana rocks that will help your deck ramp quickly. Mystic Sanctuary, Steam Vents, and Reliquary Tower are decent utility lands. Counterspell, Cyclonic Rift, Vandalblast, Expansion / Explosion, Blue Sun's Zenith, Chaos Warp, Curse of the Swine, and Fact or Fiction are all really good answer cards (I know rift is 20$ but it's still a staple). Baral, Chief of Compliance, Adeliz, the Cinder Wind, and Vedalken AEthermage are amazing utility creatures. Thousand-Year Storm turns all your spells into storm spells. Primal Amulet Flip helps mana costs and then copies spells. There's a few more things I can't really think of any, but my sources indicate that x spells do real well in a deck like this. Hope some of these help.

Your average cmc is over 4, thats really high. I would recommend cutting 6 high cmc creatures for Talisman of Conviction Boros Signet Arcane Signet Boros Locket Fire Diamond Marble Diamond locket is bad but the 2 cards can help later in a pinch. Also try to find some lower cmc spells to swap for some fatties Maybe include Speaker of the Heavens and Bishop of Wings or other angel relevant clerics. Do you have a meta that supplies enough time for Burnished Hart ? I find it to be incredibly clunky, its 2 turns to play 2 extra lands. I would just add Myriad Landscape to the mana base and swap the burnished hart for Knight of the White Orchid Legion's Initiative can protect your team from a wipe. Leaving mana open is hard in Boros, but losing creatures with limited card draw is very bad. Eerie Interlude and Unbreakable Formation or Teferi's Protection can also protect the team if there is a board wipe. And now the important part. Herald's Horn and Vanquisher's Banner since your tribal red has wheels and impulse draw like Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel there's Mazemind Tome 4 scrys for 2 mana is a fair rate and if you need cards or have the mana open go ahead and draw. Stolen Strategy Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Rogue's Gloves Chandra, Torch of Defiance Mask of Memory can all get you cards just off the top of my head but Im sure scryfall or looking through some other gisela decks will render many more options as well. Cheers good luck with your Angels!

I would personally recommend running some counterspells and removal in the deck as it's currently very fragile to interaction.
Also I think some ramp (land and/or artifacts) could help as well as your progression is going to be very linear with this deck and could easily be outpaces by someone with a more aggressive mana base.

Monomanamaniac Thanks for the upvote and the kind words! I'll comment your suggestions.
Boros Charm: Is a great card and I used it before but I've cut it for more permanents. This deck can have so much interaction because it needs creatures to attack and enchantments to make them better
Mangara, the Diplomat: I'm eager to test it, but I don't own one (I'm not spending in MtG for awhile)
Sunforger: I can't praise this card enought but unfortunately this is not the deck for it. Iroas needs devotion, so I can run only so many artifacts. And Sunforger is not a slot in a deck - it is a dozen. You'll need targets, tutors to find it, maybe a creature or two that can cheat equip costs...
Arcane Signet: Good, could replace Cluestone or Locket for it (but I run those because of the option to draw)
Odric, Lunarch Marshal: Is good, I don't own one so never tested. I'm just concerned that it would be a dead topdeck in some situation, but surely worth a shot.
Odric, Master Tactician: Used it before, actually it underperformed. Iroas is usually good enought
Winota, Joiner of Forces: Same as Mangara
Sword of the Animist: Used it before, it is a good card and works, but I decided to cut it for Burnished and Lannery Storm as they can attack and block. I'm still interested in bringing it back but still have to figure something out.
Shadowspear: Same problem as Sunforger, I can run only many artifacts, also Hexproof and Indestructible are things that could be resolved with "player removal" xD
Chaos Warp: Considering this one, I love removal that hits more than one kind of permanents, but I am satisfied with the removal package on this deck already. Maybe I can squeeze in the place of something.
Flawless Maneuver: Same as Boros Charm
Brimaz, King of Oreskos: Used it before, underperformed.
Knight of the White Orchid: Same as Brimaz
Myriad Landscape: Is good and I might squeeze one in. I have one problem that I think this deck is running too few basics, sometimes I Land Tax all of them out of the deck, and I intend to use Emeria, The Sky Ruin (wich would demand more plains) but it is on my sight!
Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves: Same as Shadowspear
Vandalblast: Same as Chaos Warp
Combat Celebrant: Just neat, maybe someday I find a place for it in the deck!

Great deck but I've got a couple suggestions for you. Boros Charm can save you in a pinch or be used to make a creature hit harder. Mangara, the Diplomat is decent card draw. Sunforger is good for tutoring answer cards. Arcane Signet is good mana ramp. Odric, Lunarch Marshal spreads the love around and Odric, Master Tactician Will let you decide how your combat works. Winota, Joiner of Forces is huge card advantage of you build around it a little. Sword of the Animist is amazing for mana ramp. Shadowspear is decent for turning off indestructible and hexproof. Chaos Warp is decent removal. Flawless Maneuver is free indestructible for your team. Brimaz, King of Oreskos makes a decent amount of tokens. Knight of the White Orchid decent land ramp. Myriad Landscape also good ramp. Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves to protect from spot removal. Vandalblast is good artifact hate. Combat Celebrant can exert you into more combat steps. Anyways, that's all I can think of. I like your build though, it's got just of what you'd expect in a deck like this

Ramp is also something you may want to check out more. Maybe consider some of the following:
