More copies of lyra and some Resplendent Angels are must-haves in this build. You can probably cut the human/fateful hour subtheme and replace it with more targeted removal or angels like Baneslayer Angel.

The previews for Core Set 2021 have begun!

Vito, thorn of the dusk rose is very nice, being the second creature to have the ability of Sanguine Bond (with the first being Defiant Bloodlord), but he is better, because of his lower mana coast and the fact that he can grant himself lifelink. Hopefully, WotC shall soon print a creature version of Exquisite Blood.

As many players predicted, Massacre Wurm is being reprinted! That is very nice, and the new artwork is nice, as well, although it does look too similar to the original artwork, whereas I would have preferred very different artwork for it, but any reprint of it is better than none at all.

Given how blurry that image of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is, I wonder if it is genuine, but, if it is, it is a welcome reprint; again, new artwork would have been nice, but it is still a welcome reprint, nevertheless.

I was really hoping that Baneslayer Angel would never be reprinted, again, because it is ridiculously overpowered, but I have no decision in that matter.

Demonic embrace is very nice, and I wonder if it is part of a cycle, or only a single card?

From what plane is Basri Ket? Mark Rosewater said that there would be a new planeswalker from an existing plane, so Basri must be that planeswalker; I shall guess that he is from either Theros or Amonkhet, judging from his name and appearance.

I would say that this set of spoilers is very nice, so I am eager to see what WotC reveals, next.

French Vanilla Mythic?

Baneslayer Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath are my top picks.

It looks beautiful. A few ideas. Guardian of the Gateless and Seraph of the Sword are both decent blockers, Seraph Sanctuary gains you life, Baneslayer Angel is a 5 mana 5/5 w/ lifelink + first strike (and protection from demons and dragons), and Archangel of Tithes can help slow down attackers.

For the graveyard order matters mechanics of yesteryear Nether Spirit and Corpse Dance are the two cards I run in decks with the mechanic, but others do use it. (If no one's decks run any cards which run any graveyard order-matters cards, I think it's fine to ignore the rule about not reordering your graveyard, personally).

I also like protection from a creature type, as seen on Elite Inquisitor and Baneslayer Angel.

Alesha, Master of Death

Legendary Creature - Human Cleric

Menace, Protection from Zombies, Skeletons, and Spirits

At the beginning of your upkeep, if the top card of your graveyard is a creature, you may return it to your hand, if it is a land, you may exile it and add to your mana pool at the beginning of your precombat main phase, if it is a noncreature, nonland, you may draw a card and have each opponent lose 1 life.

: Randomly reorder your graveyard, you may activate this only during your endstep.


Continue the challenge with a new tricolor combination.

Love to see another Angel EDH deck made here on tapped out. I am also working on an EDH Angel Tribal Deck Angels Brought The Apocalypse. It's defiantly on the competitive side but noticed we share a lot of cards already. Also depending on what you mean by making them cheap, here's my recommendation list.

Cheap Angels to add maybe: Angel of Finality , Exquisite Archangel , Serra's Guardian , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Reya Dawnbringer , Resolute Archangel , Deathless Angel , and Twilight Shepherd .

Expensive Angels you could add: Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Angel of the Dire Hour , Baneslayer Angel , Archangel of Tithes , Karmic Guide , and Platinum Angel .

Looking at your deck already I definitely recommend adding Deathless Angel , Baneslayer Angel , Sephara, Sky's Blade , and Serra's Guardian .

Lastly, if this deck is already made, Shalai, Voice of Plenty cannot be in your mono white deck because there is green in its color identity. Even though green is not in its casting cost it has green in its ability. That's why Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is considered a five color commander even though he is still colorless.

I'd like to see an Approach of the Second Sun since it wins you the game and Dragonlord Ojutai can easily dig for it. Also Baneslayer Angel , Eternal Dragon , and Serra Ascendant could all be cut for more board wipes and interaction (spot removals / counterspells). My final suggestions would be Smothering Tithe , and Mask of Memory / Rogue's Gloves . Anyway +1 from me cause I love Ojutai.

Your own list of Banned Cards mentions that Platinum Angel is legal in Angel Tribal, so I would suggest throwing that in.

Baneslayer Angel is a strictly better Serra Angel , so I would go for the former over the latter.

Seraph Sanctuary is a pseudo-tribal Land, which should help with your life total. Not that you'll need it, but it's a nice option. Angelic Armaments makes any of your non-Angels into an Angel. Decree of Justice and Entreat the Angels makes more Angels on the cheap. Why those are legal and not Finale of Glory , I have no idea.

Parhelion II is an Angel Vehicle.

Serra the Benevolent is expensive dollars wise, but is straight up Angel Tribal because she makes Serra Angels.
