I feel much better about your creature base. However you should lose Gustcloak Cavalier just not that good for 5 mana. Also you are a little high on 7 mana cards. Sure you get to cast many for free but too many might still get stuck in your hand with so few ways to put them back on top from your hand.

Maybe swap out Nezahal, Primal Tide and Grave Betrayal. You could put in Venser's Journal and Reanimate for similar cheaper effects. The journal still gives you no max hand size but adds a little life gain buffer each turn and reanimate only brings back one creature but it can hit anyones graveyard not just your own... also only costs one so is flippable.

Also to bring costs down a little further I would swap out Avacyn, Guardian Angel for Mother of Runes. Effectively does the same thing but only able to protect one creature a turn which should be fine. Also has the added benefit of making a creature unblockable if the opponent only controls one color creature.

Lastly take out Nullstone Gargoyle. This card is brutal and obnoxious and won't make you any friends. Which is normally fine in this game but this card also affects YOU, and your deck isn't built to play around it. If you haven't cast a non-creature and yennett flips one this guy counters it... kind of a nonbo. Maybe replace it with something like Diluvian Primordial (though 7 is much better CMC) or Necromancy for another reanimation spell that can target opponents creatures as well.

As a Vorthos player the name of your deck just irks me. Avacyn, Guardian Angel was created by a freaking VAMPIRE. To keep the other vampires from eating all the humans Sorin made Avacyn - unless you're trying to say that Sorin is God?

I try to keep it up to date too (^-^)

this is probably the only Avacyn, Guardian Angel deck still alive, everyone would rather use Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

Thank you for the suggestions! Iona we're specifically avoiding due to the no-fun factor associated with it. Also because I play, among my decks, mono-black, mono-red, and mono-green, lol. For the same reason we've avoided Linvala.

Luminarch Ascension we've considered before, however if you don't get it out early, many decks can make it so you never get to four counters.

Ghostly Prison/Authority of the Consuls/Blind Obedience are interesting includes, though I'd doubt we'd put more than one of the three in. As ways to slow down opponents, I think I favor Authority as it comes down the earliest and is the least intrusive, keeping us from being marked as a threat early on.

As for Adarkar Valkyrie, I personally think it's fantastic, but he thinks he has enough recursion already. I'm trying to convince him that since he has snow synergies he should put it in, but we'll see.

I should mention we just replaced Avacyn, Guardian Angel and Light of the Legion since the Avacyn never felt good to play. The Light is still in testing, but it seems like a good support for the combat-oriented strategy we've got going on.

Making some updates to address some of the concerns I have with the early version of this deck:

Land

out:

Horizon Canopy

Brushland

Razorverge Thicket

Temple Garden

Windswept Heath

Wooded Bastion

(no need to have an extreme mana base with this early of a deck version. Expect mana base to continue to change)

in:

Windbrisk Heights

Blighted Woodland

Seraph Sanctuary

Secluded Steppe

Ghost Quarter

Temple of the False God

Creatures

out:

Archangel of Tithes

Avacyn, Guardian Angel

Bruna, the Fading Light

Gisela, the Broken Blade

(no ETB )

Herald of War

(no ETB, cost reduction on turn 5 not powerful enough)

Oracle of Mul Daya

(too expensive)

Weathered Wayfarer

(expensive value negated by real ramp)

in:

Aegis Angel

Angelic Arbiter

Banisher Priest

Artifact

out:

Chromatic Lantern

(too expensive for a 2 color deck)

in:

Swiftfoot Boots

Hedron Archive

Enchantment

out:

Anointed Procession

(off strat)

in:

Into the Wilds

planeswalker

in:

Ajani Unyielding

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Yes, Spike Feeder's ability can target itself. There's no language in its ability preventing it from doing so. When a permanent's ability cannot target itself it's typically worded as "another target..." like you see in cards like Avacyn, Guardian Angel.

Edgar Markov Isn't even that powerful. I've seen him played several times and never once saw him win even in a casual enviroment. He gets rocked hard by several decks of my own, most of which are tier 3 or lower, Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Avacyn, Guardian Angel. Free vampires and haste is great and all, but fairly easy to get around.

Avacyn, Guardian Angel and Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo can both blank attacks. I play Avacyn though and she's very mana dependent obviously, as is OE to maximize him.
