~Just my thoughts, not inciting any changes needed.~~

Im running a very similar list to this one. I have made a few changes though. I've been playing this deck for a long time now. With the release of Hour of Devastation, I've move away from Archangel Avacyn  Flip for Glorybringer due to avacyn not being able to say anything from HOD removing indestructible. I've also ditched Pia for Depala, Pilot Exemplar. Depala pumps your tool crafts and vehicles, plus if you attack with her you get sudo scry's/gas if mana open.

I have cut out the Walking Ballista completely from my list for Veteran Motorist. This was due to the meta around my LGS being alot of control. If you can get a heart and a motorist on the field early control turns into a squishy ball.

All in all I love playing this deck and this list looks right on the money. +1 from me.I was playing R/G ramp for 2 weeks and I ended up putting this back together because of my love for it.

Sadly, I believe according to a newer ruling, Elbrus, the Binding Blade is no longer legal in non-black if a card transforms into a color that is not in your Commander's color identity, it can't be played. Archangel Avacyn  Flip wouldn't be allowed for the same reason.

903.4c The back face of a double-faced card (see rule 711) is included when determining a card's color identity.

Example: Civilized Scholar is the front face of a double-faced card with mana cost 2U. Homicidal Brute is the back face of that double-faced card and has a red color indicator. The card's color identity is blue and red.

Jund may be viable because the post rotation manabase can be good. Here's a hint: get 4x Dragonskull Summit and 4x Rootbound Crag. The ally colored Check lands are in my opinion going to have a big impact on the most viable decks post rotation and Jund can use two of them; a Mountain can activate both of them.

To begin post rotation being in red is a sure bet because Chandra has the potential to be the new Gideon, Ally of Zendikar an oppressive Planewalker. She's very good with Glorybringer which also gets a huge boost even more than now in Standard because the cards that keep it most in check Grasp of Darkness, Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Ishkanah, Grafwidow all rotate. Harnessed Lightning is also still here and it's excellent creature removal.

Black will continue to be good because of Fatal Push and Winding Constrictor, but the lose of Grasp is huge. Some of the best two drops for Jund are rotating, Grim Flayer and Sylvan Advocate. Who takes there place is a guess, but Constrictor makes the most sense because of 3 toughness and it's proven to be good already. It's versatile, can mix two strategies together energy and +1/+1 counters. Gifted Aetherborn also has real potential, as it's good right now, but it's also double black much harder on the manabase. Energy 2 drops are the real winners, Servant of the Conduit, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and Constrictor are all powerful 2 drops for Jund.

Looking at all the current strategies that Jund can use energy is currently the most powerful with +1/+1 counters a runner up. For the time being I think you're much better off in energy with Jund than anything else.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Selfless Spirit popped up each round, but that's all I remember. He also had some exile enchantments. The flying was enough to beat me down for the most part.

Atroxreaper Lone Rider  Flip is very good in here.Also Thraben Inspector and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip but they will rotate very soon you see.. Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Declaration in Stone are just perfect but not 4long.. i am trying to make me a new deck that i can play long so i can test it against more upcoming decks.

So firstly you really want to focus this deck on a few key creatures. Angels are notoriously hard to build around as they are all so expensive so I would recommend adopting a prison style deck to bide your time before being able to play your angels. For this you want things like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, and Luminarch Ascension.

As for the creatures, Serra Avenger is an auto include, I would also play Kami of False Hope and Thalia, Heretic Cathar to further slow down your opponent. You probably want Archangel Avacyn  Flip as your angel bomb along with the meld package of multiple Gisela, the Broken Blade and 1 Bruna, the Fading Light and from there use support angels like Angel of Sanctions, Angel of Condemnation, and Emancipation Angel.

You want 4 Path to Exile or an alternative such as Banishing Light or Cast Out for your removal package. You may also want to splash blue for some counters or Geist of Saint Traft (cheap effective creature).

Finally I would say you want to be playing 24-25 lands seeing the mana cost of angels. If you need any help feel free to ask me I love angels.
