Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice

Legendary Creature — Angel

Mentor (Whenever this creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on target attacking creature with lesser power.)

At the beginning of combat on your turn, choose up to one target creature you control. Until end of turn, that creature gets +2/+0, gains trample if it’s red, and gains vigilance if it’s white.

Replace: Gray Merchant of Asphodel for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker

Herald of War for Liliana's Contract (Card Draw!)

Shivan Dragon For Sephara, Sky's Blade (Cooler creature)

More card draw and mana ramp would do this deck really well. Make the tough choice to get rid of some of the expensive creatures. You can favor creatures and cards that change the board state the turn they come in rather than later.

Boros Battleshaper for Angel of Serenity (Targeted Removal)

Disciple of Bolas for Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice (Duh)

Assemble the Legion for True Conviction

I would also try to decrease the average converted mana cost. This deck feels slow and bulky. Add in the appropriate mana ramp. Some artifacts that cost 2 or less that give you mana. Like the Talisman of Hierarchy , Wayfarer's Bauble or Talisman of Conviction .

If you rebuild it: 10 Ramp Spells 5+ Removal (This includes creatures that remove, i.e. Angel of Serenity . 10+ Draw Spells 30ish leftover for the cool stuff.

Ok, so after playing with this for a bit I have made the following modifications. Removed 2x Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , 3x Disfigure 1x Mountain . Added 4x Knight of the Ebon Legion , 2x Shock and swapped 2x Plains for 2x Isolated Chapel in the mana base to compensate for the earlier black requirement. This was always meant to be an aggro deck to prey on the likes of Wilderness Reclamation so more one drops to start beating earlier seems natural. Disfigure might be a better choice than Shock for its combat trick potential but the added reach and ability to pick off low loyalty plainswalkers have swayed me towards the latter for now.

I have also removed Gideon Blackblade and Mortify from the side board, these were meant to help in the control match-up but I found you don't need them with the speed this deck can kill. I replaced them with a fourth Tocatli Honor Guard and Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded to help against Sulti Dreadhorde matches which I see as the worst match-up and potentially be good in the mono-red match-up.

Having things that abuse attack triggers is really good for this commander Cards like Etali, Primal Storm or Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice get you tons of value. Also your missing the best white ramp card Smothering Tithe .

You also mention that your deck has been very underwhelming, what category has been lacking, or how have your games been playing out?

I feel like the 19 land manabase is too low for a 4 drop: I removed Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice because of that. Zada is value but it's hard to keep creatures on the field even in Standard.

I agree with Nic that there are a lot of cards that will be very hard to cast in a Modern tournament. I have been away from Modern for a while, but from what I am understanding is that the format is getting faster. Games usually are over by turns 3-5 depending on what you are playing against. Some decks and get a lot of power on the board too fast for you to handle and others pick apart your hand and you then cannot respond to their one big threat. So your 6+ drops will probably never be played.

Cards I would take out are Blackblade Reforged , Demonlord Belzenlok , Drakuseth, Maw of Flames , and Feather, the Redeemed . Blackblade will be too slow, Bel and Drak are going to be too expensive, and Feather really needs spells that targets her to be effective. You can keep the higher mana cost creatures, but you need to find some way to cheat them onto the battlefield. For example, Goryo's Vengeance , and those decks Griselbrand is usually the best option.

I think you deck may be able to work if you do a bit of a controlling build with hand disruption from Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek as well as looting a a little graveyard recursion from Faithless Looting and Unearth .

Perhaps something where you focus on Resplendent Angel and Kaalia, Zenith Seeker as your targets for Unearth then have th 2x of Seraph of the Scales and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice as other side threats. I think Lyra Dawnbringer is a good 2 of in the sideboard for the burn matchup and other aggressive decks. You can try Bishop of Wings for a blocker, but not sure how well it will work in modern. I think x3-4 Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek would be good along with x4 Faithless Looting and Unearth . I am not sure what that leaves you with after all the subtractions and additions. I do like the Paths, Bolts, and Helix in the deck. You may like having x3 Paths and Bolts while using Helix as a sideboard card for aggressive matchups again. Just a few ideas for you. Not trying to re-create your entire deck as I want you to stick with your angels theme, but trying to make sure you do not get steamrolled by the more powerful decks in the format.

i'd recommend adding more colors to the deck. the first color i'd add is green to ramp into your angels quickly as well as potentially use the effect of Shalai, Voice of Plenty .

red also gives access to Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and of course Lightning Helix and Lightning Bolt .

if running green, you can add black as well for Assassin's Trophy and Abrupt Decay .

blue would probably be the weakest color to add. imo, the only good blue angel is Lightning Angel

I’m going to go with 2 Bedevil and a fourth Dragonskull Summit . Based on Frank Karsten’s math, this deck’s average CMC warrants playing 27 lands. If it feels like too many, I’ll switch the land for the Bedevil .

I’m not sure on the mono red match up, but I’ll definitely keep Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice in mind.

Vraska's Contempt feels right for the left over sideboard slot.
