Avacyn, Angel of Hope Discussion

Thanks for your comments! Auriel, thank you for your suggestions. Removal is a good way of protection for me, but Angel of Serenity is a bit late game, I think. Sphere of Safety would be a great fit due to my high enchantments, and with Enchanted Evening every permanent would pay toward it, so thank you so much for that one! My budget isn't very high and I kinda just play for fun. Right now, I'm probably going to keep Avacyn, Angel of Hope printed because I don't have nearly enough money to pay $30 for one card. Endless Horizons is another fantastic card that will definitely be put in. I probably won't focus too much on removal for my deck, because I really would like to make it so that anyone attacking me will be crippled and I'll get the upper hand. Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile and Stuffy Doll are really meant to destroy. I'm very much new to Magic and don't know many cards, so thanks so much for your suggestions.

Considering your description, I assume this is meant as a pillowfort deck. In case this is the case (lol), here are my recommendations:
- Aegis of the Gods; fantastic card to use until your Bruna/Gisela/Teeg combo hits the table.
- Grand Abolisher; an Abolisher a day, keeps the counterspells away.
- Linvala, Keeper of Silence; bit expensive but not as much as she used to be. No more activated abilities from enemy creatures.
- Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Soul of New Phyrexia; to protect everything on your board from targeted removal and destruction wipes.
- Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir; even worse than Grand Abolisher, now your opponents can't cast spells during their own upkeep or combat phases either. And as an added bonus, you can cast creatures anytime you want; even after your opponent has declared attackers!
- Melira, Sylvok Outcast; just in case your opponents like to use infect.
- Vigor; this is great in combat and even better against red damage spells that target multiple creatures.
- Sphere of Safety; great potential to be even nastier than Ghostly Prison.
- Leyline of Anticipation; almost as fun as Teferi.
- Crawlspace; very nice against token decks.
Whatever you decide to use, I sincerely hope you'll get of Entomb, Buried Alive and Jarad's Orders. First off, these cards are nice, but are better suited in a deck that's heavy on recursion. I'd replace them wih Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen or if you have the money, Demonic Tutor and/or Vampiric Tutor. Second, you're using Ground Seal; this seems very counter-productive.

I love this card so much. I started to just build a straight zombie tribal for him to trigger his first ability hard and drain everybody to death, but I think I've found an interesting build to feed his second ability. Try introducing some mill into the deck? Fill their graveyards with cards that COULD'VE become problems if they were cast, but instead zombify them for yourself (just imagine milling a Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger into their grave, only to steal it for yourself? Or Avacyn, Angel of Hope?)
Check mine out, if you don't mind. Mine went heavy on the mill side, but still has a hefty dose of zombie generation. Zombie God of Mill

So after play-testing a bit, I feel like Liliana of the Dark Realms synergizes really well with the deck. She's relatively cheap to cast, and allows consistent mana generation every turn thanks to her +1. By turn 6 or 7, I can pop her emblem, in tandem with the number of Swamps she lets me search for, which isn't even accounting for whether or not I drew into an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, in order to generate ridiculous amounts of Black mana. This let's me pop off cards like Griselbrand, or pay for the colorless costs of Avacyn, Angel of Hope relatively reliably, and without the need for Heartless Summoning.
Any recommendations to add Call of the Gatewatch or Dark Petition to quickly search Liliana of the Dark Realms or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth? I've drawn into them often enough without, but I'd chalk that up to luck, more than anything else.
With so many high-cost cards being run, I feel like having a few 1-2 cost creatures would be more beneficial for stalling than leaving myself wide open for multiple turns, or praying I draw into a Wall of Omens or Wall of Shards. Thoughts?

Not in the way you are looking for, ie something like Asceticism or Avacyn, Angel of Hope. The examples you did not want are the only things you got. There's no static effect that I know of, basically.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope should get a spot. All your creatures are indestructible the second she hits the field!
I would probably take out Malfegor, since if you discard your hand you discard all the fodder you have for Kaalia.
Also because all of your creatures are enormous as is, Akroma's Memorial works well to make them impossible to deal with.

I will warn you up front, this path I'm going to take you down is not going to win you any friends. It's probably going to lose you a few. But this is about top trumping expensive cards with not so expensive cards.
Play every major board wipe you can play, especially land destruction like Armageddon. You can combo that with some protection of your own like Terra Eternal. You can also do the rage inducing combo of Avacyn, Angel of Hope with Worldslayer and some unblockable cards like Aqueous Form or Rogue's Passage, then add in some protection like Vanishing or Flickerform.
Their $500 cards won't save them when they have no land to play with.
