I feel Providence may do more harm than good. You never want to reveal it, and 7 mana is a lot to invest in life reset. A good reveal angel would be Chancellor of the Annex. I would also replace Avacyn, Guardian Angel with Archangel Avacyn Flip.

Yes that was what I meant. Zombies are best when the whole deck is meant for them. My suggestion? Take everything Alesha does into account and focus on it exclusively. She is aggressive, run aggressive creatures/ enchantments/ artifacts (Whispersilk Cloak, Fervor, Gratuitous Violence, Urabrask the Hidden). She recurs things, run recursion enchantments/ spells (Debtors' Knell, Reanimate, Marshal's Anthem, Return to the Ranks, Ravos, Soultender). She does a lot, so run protection enchantments/ artifacts/ spells. (Any of the Swords, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Archangel Avacyn Flip)

With the top contenders revealed at PT Amonkhet, it's a great time for hard control decks to materialize. The question is, however, which colors are best?
In order to survive, control would need both main and sideboard answers to:
- Aetherworks Marvel lists - the best answers here are countermagic (main) and disruption spells such as Transgress the Mind and Lost Legacy (side). Artifact destruction such as Release the Gremlins and By Force are also sideboard options.
- Zombies variants - Cheap removal, especially those that exile (yay Magma Spray) are great, as are unconditional board wipes like Fumigate, and maybe even Descend upon the Sinful? Other, more conditional options are Sweltering Suns and Yahenni's Expertise. Flying creatures are an effective way to get through the horde.
- Vehicles - The artifact destruction and removal mentioned above work here.
So, we have effective answers across four colors - white, blue, black, and red. Since I'm personally looking at a budget (getting into MTGO, but hesitant to spend much on virtual goods for now), Archangel Avacyn Flip, while an incredible answer to Zombies and good against Vehicles, is a little above my price range. Unfortunately Fatal Push is pushing it, and likely too much for the time being.
Blue is certainly the core with countermagic and access to budget finishers such as Sphinx of the Final Word, Glyph Keeper, and potentionally Dynavolt Tower However, there are arguments for each of white, black, and red. So, what do you think? What's the best route for a budget control deck in standard?

You can often merge into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares.
It's basically just a beat down deck, that tries to get bigger than the Opponent.
You'll find a description of how it plays at Heavenly High.

Thanks Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor. I have considered Hidden Stockpile. I worry that it just doesn't do enough and is too slow. In the perfect situation, it will help us grind through a long creature based back and forth, but we do alright in that match anyway. When we are trying to beat control or aggro, it just does too little. Just my thoughts.
I really like Bontu the Glorified and Zulaport Cutthroat in an aristocrats deck. Fun to play, but they need lots of creatures to sac. MTG Goldfish just posted a version a few days ago as an example. The deck benefits from token generators like Doomed Dissenter or Sacred Cat. We just don't have room for all that in this deck.
Forsake the Worldly is great in my mainboard, but entirely because cycle gets it out when its not needed. The meta has enough targets that are disrupted by this to make it useful. I have found it helpful very often, and am kinda surprised I don't see it more. Cycle is really really good.
Thanks for the suggestions!
