DashCat You mean, like in addition to: Baird, Steward of Argive, Balan, Wandering Knight, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Isamaru, Hound of Konda, Kemba, Kha Regent, Kwende, Pride of Femeref, Sephara, Sky's Blade, Sram, Senior Artificer, and (my personal favorite), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben? Ok...

Whenever you cycle a card, draw an additional card, then discard a card
, Exile 5 cards from your graveyard: Cast target noncreature, nonartifact card from your graveyard without paying its mana cost
Can't tell if the CMC is too high. Debating whether it would be 2WW, or if 2WWW is appropriate for the power level.
Was ninja'd, so do above.

Hey awsome deck who doesn't love one sided board wipes? The only two things that come to mind are first cause of Avacyns already demanding cost I would go a little harder on the board lock some mono white allstars in my book are Glowrider/Winter Orb/Vryn Wingmare/Baird, Steward of Argive/Magus of the Tabernacle/Lodestone Golem.
Then second because of that same factor of mana I would just suggest since your already running 30 basics just switch them to snow lands run an Extraplanar Lens and add a Scrying Sheets to consistently filter out lands and not waste draws.
One last thing since your mono white and doing boardwipes I have to recommend one of my favorite cards of all time Scourglass amazing art and its genuinely a good card, good luck! hope these suggestions help in some way, let me know if you have any questions about any of them

Hello. If you are looking to build an Aggro/burn deck but budget style, I have some suggestions.
Electrostatic Field is a great card to play four or three of. It can end up doing some major damage when left out long enough
Of course, there is always Firemind's Research This is helpful to burn, and good if you are willing to run three colors.
All of these cards are cheap, so you should not be spending much on them.
Any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask me

On Thin Ice doesn't work for this deck, as it requires a snow-land to enchant, and your deck doesn't run any (and they will increase the cost quite a bit). If you don't have a Coat of Arms already, I would drop it for other things. It's a nice card, but will benefit other tribal strategies and is pretty expensive overall - Door of Destinies might be a better option. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is not actually in your list, so you'll need to drop a card and put her in. Make sure to type * CMDR * (no spaces) after the card name to show her as the commander. I would look for some ways to push damage through, like adding some equipment that gives trample Ring of Kalonia or Loxodon Warhammer come to mind. Skyblinder Staff makes any of your flying creatures blockable only by creatures with Reach, which is a pretty powerful effect, with a flying commander. Champion of Lambholt can quickly give you an army of unblockable creatures. Dictate of Heliod is another option for an anthem. I think Elder Cathar may be an underperformer here and better replaced with another creature. Maybe Juniper Order Ranger, Abzan Falconer, Aegis of the Gods, Baird, Steward of Argive, Goldnight Commander, Karametra's Acolyte, Krosan Restorer, Tuskguard Captain, Wild Beastmaster or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Good luck, and let me know if there are any specific questions you have.

I have replaced Baird, Steward of Argive with Archon of Absolution, because that card has a more lenient mana cost, because it has protection, and because flying is typically more useful than is vigilance (although that is not to say that vigilance is not a useful ability, since it is usually a very awesome ability, indeed).

well, it's only ever been printed as a foil card but I absolutely agree if you a fifth of your deck is planeswalkers. I would drop Baird, Steward of Argive he really doesn't do anything other than being a worse Propaganda.

Hey, you're welcome.
To start, cards to consider cutting are lands since you don't need 41 lands in an Orzhov Commander deck especially since there's so many basic lands. Consider 36 lands? Next are creatures who don't have flying or other evasion.
You want to make some choices of the kind of creatures/theme you want to play. There's a small Vampire theme here with Captivating Vampire, Malakir Bloodwitch, etc. For these Vamps to be worth playing you need a lot more Vampires because without Vamps they don't really do much. There's many Vampires who have evasion therefore if you choose you could increase the Vamps a lot and make your deck more Vampire tribal then anything else.
A reason to cut the Vamps is there's many more nonVamp creatures that are better. Neither Tymna or Ravos are Vamps which makes the tribe overall less good, no tribal synergy with your Generals. If you choose to keep the Vamps then include a lot more of them or if not then cut them.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Vicious Rumors
- Toll of the Invasion
- Lich's Caress
- Righteous Blow
- Bloodsoaked Altar
- Burglar Rat
- Corpse Knight
- Daybreak Chaplain
- Martyr for the Cause
- Tattered Mummy
- Sanctum Custodian
- Charity Extractor
- Gallant Cavalry
- Relief Captain
- Intrusive Packbeast
- Knight of Sorrows
- Evra, Halcyon Witness
- Loxodon Restorer
- Bishop of the Bloodstained
- Baird, Steward of Argive
- Firemind Vessel
I would cut all these cards, doesn't matter what direction for your deck you choose to go. There's better budget options for each one of these cards. Some cards such as Corpse Knight are good, but it doesn't go with the current strategy therefore I would cut it.
I don't recommend the Vampire direction, but if you want to play Vamps then I do offer advice for that direction.
