Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

Hi Daedalus19876, point taken.
I had to mention that I am aiming at a 1 vs 1 environment with this card. But I do not like to sideboard solely for such a shitty multiplayer card :)
Avarice Amulet is a beauty, since I really enjoy more carddraw in this deck. And it was in the build before, but I think I misread how it actuually works and not be lost after it falls of my commander.
I also found a leftover copy of Avacyn, Angel of Hope. What would you replace from my current deck. For this one and the amulet? Im on the fence about this. Bastion Protector feels kinda weak, since it only adds value when my commander is out. Other than this, I am having a hard time to pick something to drop.

I have a legitimate question-flavor aside, why run almost exclusively wurms? I get that some of them are combo pieces, win conditions, etc. but a bunch of them would be better suited as better green fatties...maybe Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Avacyn, Angel of Hope,Iona, Shield of Emeria, Woodfall Primus, Thragtusk...hell, even Wurmcoil Engine is a better creature than Armada Wurm that still fits flavor.
What I'm saying is that I understand and love the concept of cheating big fatties into play (I play Mayael in EDH quite often), but I don't see the point of going tribal and playing some less than optimal creatures unless you're also running either lords or tribal buffs like Door of Destinies or something.

Additional combat phases help with Melee. And with all the attacking indestructibility or damage prevention would be helpful to you.

Thanks for the suggestions, Necrotize. Those both seem good. I like Selfless Spirit as an alternative to buying an Avacyn, Angel of Hope. I also considered Dauntless Escort, but the evasion on the spirit is MUCH more attractive than the 3/3 body on the escort.
As an aside, I'm kinda on the fence about Nylea, God of the Hunt. Thinking to replace her with Jace, the Mind Sculptor - primarily so I can cycle through more cards, and gain another removal option. But Nylea tends to stay on the board longer than Jace... thoughts?

Hey there! I pilot a somewhat competitive Kaalia aggro list if you're interested in taking a look.
What's your budget and level of competition? Having that information handy could better produce the feedback you desire. For now I'll offer recommendations based on my experiences and playstyle, which consists of getting Kaalia on the field and exploiting her ASAP.
(Quick Note on your Akroma's Memorial and Obliterate Combo - It doesn't work. Protection doesn't save creatures from non-targeting destroy effects. Protection protects agains DEBT, or Damage, Enchanting/Equipping, Blocking, or Targeting.)
That said, Mass Land Destruction is a viable strategy for locking a game with kaalia on the board. Armageddon, Ravages of War, Impending Disaster, or even hate such as Blood Moon or Winter Orb could help you get an edge.
On the same note, there are some more "targeted wraths" you could run, particularly Austere Command. Kaalia and her lot are all 4 CMC+, so you could blow up small stuff while keeping your own. Still, you can pair any wrath with the (cheap) Boros Charm's Indestructable mode. I'd take a look into some cheaper or more flexible wraths, too. Wrath of God, Catastrophe, Akroma's Vengeance, Merciless Eviction, Fell the Mighty (play before swinging with Kaalia) and the like.
Consider the 2 CMC mana rocks over the 3 CMC Keyrunes, Banner, and Monument. A Turn 1 Sol Ring into a Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, Boros Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, or Talisman of Indulgence can mean a quicker start. If budget or level of competition justifies it, consider going deeper with Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, or Mana Crypt, which all enable a T2 Kaalia with the right hand.
Kothophed, Soul Hoarder's effect isn't a may ability. Most infinite combos have the potential to kill you out right. If you want safer card-draw on a stick, consider Bloodgift Demon or Harvester of Souls.
Speaking of card draw, I think you could benefit from a few cheaper sources. Loreseeker's Stone and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, while reusable, cost a bit of mana. Better options may be Necropotence, which was recently reprinted in EMA while, and Phyrexian Arena which will be even cheaper with CN2 coming later tonight. I particularly like ho well both enchantments can be sought and played after a Spell Mastery-enbaled Dark Petition. Also, that Read the Bones on your maybeboard and the cheap Painful Truths could also be a nice boost, should they find a spot. Additionally, Dragon Mage can refill you entire hand and is highly Kaalia playable.
Your creature selection is missing a couple of the "flagship" Kaalia playables. If budget is an issue you can disregard these suggestions, but consider acquiring Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Balefire Dragon, Aurelia, the Warleader, and the like. As for creatures to cut, I'd advocate for Deathbringer Regent (caditional, must be cast) and Stormwing Dragon (expensive, minimal impact).
There's a couple other points to make but I don't like delving too deep without a good idea of what you're going for. There's a fine line behind suggesting improvements and crushing the soul of a deck. If you have any questions about what I do an do not run, take a glace at my list. Consider upvoting it if any of this was helpful to you. I'd appreciate it!

Cotrolling should be done, by somethings that prevent the opponents from attacking me (Ghostly Prison, Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts) and let them dicard all their cards.
The small creatures with i.E. Shadow are for regaining the throne (become the Monarch again).

I can't remember the name but you'll want that time bug card that removes time counters. You'll also want draw cards so once omniscience goes online you draw into draw into draw into draw into Avacyn, Angel of Hope to protect omniscience. Also counters would help I guess.
