So you've chosen mono-white, traditionally seen as a weaker colour in EDH thanks to a lack of ramp and draw. But not does it gain life, and you can work with that! First up, some creatures that care about lifegain (if you're not going full stax you'll need decent bodies to block and close out the game if your win-cons get removed): Ajani's Pridemate; Angel of Vitality; Archangel of Thune; Gideon's Company; Heliod, Sun-Crowned; Serene Steward; Serra Ascendant; Serra Avatar or Twinblade Paladin are all decent at this while Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sun Titan are staples for a reason. I'm not convinced by the Runes, they're cool but a completely dead draw if your opponents aren't playing that colour. Other options might be Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Crackdown; Cradle of Vitality, Dawn of Hope; Path of Bravery; Smothering Tithe and Sunbond. The Reservoir is one of your best ways to win, so being able to search it up with Enlightened Tutor or the more budget Inventors' Fair and Tamiyo's Journal would be good. Other cards that might be good inclusions would be a wrath or two; Tithe/Land Tax; Debt of Loyalty; Lapse of Certainty; Selfless Squire; Rebuff the Wicked; Voidstone Gargoyle; Generous Gift; Emeria Shepherd; Exile and maybe some of the many Ajanis, Elspeths or Gideons. Finally, I reckon that 35 lands may even be a few too many, especially as most of them are basics. Might be worth cutting down to 30 and looking for some utility in cyclers/Emeria, The Sky Ruin/Detection Tower/Evolving Wilds etc. Could probably trade Path of Ancestry away too - it doesn't do much for you but is actually quite valuable!

I've been looking forward to this deck but only for the partner commanders tbh. I think it goes without saying Shiny Impetus isn't that good in the deck. Some of my suggestions are Hanweir Garrison and Hanweir Battlements. It depends now which path you take, you can go for a wide board and a beatdown strategy or go for a sacrifice and ping everybody. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Benalish Marshal, Commander's Insignia, Flamerush Rider are some good cards to go for the first strategy. Judith, the Scourge Diva, Xathrid Necromancer,General Kudro of Drannith (can work for both sides),Teysa Karlov,Priest of Forgotten Gods are nice additions for a sacrifice route. Ashnod's Altar works on both sides alongside with Anointed Procession, Phyrexian Arena and Dictate of Erebos if you really want to control the board. Now if you really want to get your table super salty get Silvar, Devourer of the Free jacked up and then equip him with Worldslayer and then just win. Is it viable? Not really, you have better strategies. But is it worth it? Yes, just to see the despair on their faces or you can run Avacyn, Angel of Hope that also works.

ChronoCyrus Thank you so much for your feedback :)

Idk if Privileged Position would be better in place of Asceticism. I enjoy the regeneration ability frok the latter.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is a tad out of my price range sadly.

Smothering Tithe, Open the Armory and Finale of Devastation are already on my buy list to get next.

And yeah tutors need to be added bad. As well as an upgrade to the land package

ChronoCyrus on Trostani's Cloning Process

Hello Ziabo! I was doing some playtesting with your deck and thinking about my old Trostani deck that became a Ghired deck; here are my thoughts. Privileged Position and/or Avacyn, Angel of Hope and/or Dragonlord Dromoka for protection. Searchers for your wincons like: Enlightened Tutor a/o Idyllic Tutor a/o Open the Armory for your token doublers, your auras, a/o your Aetherflux Reservoir , a/o Helm of the Host. Drop the guildgate for Temple Garden.
Altar of Dementia can be an altarnate wincon with your Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond loop; searchable with Enlightened Tutor . Lightning Greaves are good Seedborn Muse is good Smothering Tithe is great! Finale of Devastation is AMAZING!

Hope this helps :)

multimedia on Kathril

Hey, unfortunately it's going to difficult to be able to get Kathril to a power level 8-9 as the build around. Gluttonous Slug? Really?

When your best play with Kathril is to Entomb Zetalpa, Primal Dawn then it's pretty flawed to be high power level Commander. To make power level 8-9 you want to have an infinite combo as a win condition. The first things I would do to increase the power level is make your deck playable without Kathril. This means adding more ramp and using strategies that don't require Kathril to win. This also means cutting many creatures who are only good because they have keywords for Kathril.

Reanimation can be a high power level strategy using cards that also have synergy with Kathril. You already have lots of reanimation enablers, but lack actual reanimation. Couple of directions that I think have potential for a higher power level with Kathril are voltron with Worldslayer and Razacats reanimation combo with Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Could combine both of these strategies to make your deck more fun, more avenues to winning. Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Razaketh, the Foulblooded are good creatures with Kathril and they're also creatures who you want to reanimate. Sigarda, Host of Herons is another good creature with Kathril and she's good with voltron.

Eerie Ultimatum can reanimate entire creature combos including the entire Razacats combo and/or all equipment/auras in your graveyard including Worldslayer with Puresteel Paladin to free equip it all to Kathril/Avacyn/Sigarda. Eternal Witness can recur Ultimatum and Ultimatum can reanimate Witness to do it again. Ultimatum can have great interaction with Worldslayer since it can reanimate it as well as reanimate lands, mana rocks, mana dorks which Worldslayer will destroy. Razacats combo is using Razaketh to assemble the infinite combo of Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Blood Artist who is the win condition. Main reason to include this win condition combo is it uses reanimation spells and reanimation is a good strategy with Kathril.

Flying creatures are good with Kathril and they're also good with equipment. When Kathril is indestructible/hexproof it can act like pseudo Avacyn this makes Worldslayer an option. Wipe the board of all permanents leaving only Kathril equipped with Worldslayer or reanimate Avacyn before you trigger Worldslayer. A voltron strategy requires some equipment, but more important are ways to cheat equipment onto the battlefield and cheat equip costs.

If you like these ideas then I offer to help you to update your deck. Good luck with your deck.

Removed Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Avacyn, Angel of Hope as they always got hated out pretty quick.

Replaced them with Mana Tithe and Rebuff the Wicked

If you are going to be playing an angel tribal deck, I have some suggestions.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope Is the superior Avacyn to the version you have in your deck. I don’t know if it is outside of your budget, but I run it in my Mardu Angels modern deck, and it works wonders.

Either Akroma, Angel of Wrath or Akroma, Angel of Fury are great additions. I don’t know if you want any of them, but they can really put the pressure on your opponent.

Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light can work good in your deck. If you can merge them together, it creates a huge threat, and is still an angel, despite being an eldrazi.

Of course Platinum Angel is good.

Let me know if these work for you for an angels build
