Baneslayer Angel Discussion

seems .... like it needs actual soul sisters, Essence Warden, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant etc. especially with the mb Ojutai's Command for additional targets.

also consider swapping Baneslayer Angel for Archangel of Thune

Yeah, I guess you can if you are on a budget. I don't really know your budget, but some of the best angels out there are Gisela, the Broken Blade and Baneslayer Angel, they are both around the 3-6 dollar range, and the absolute best angel ever is Archangel of Thune, but that's like a 20 dollar card, especially because she combos with Herald of War effectively causing mass discounts for your angel creatures.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal could potentially work really well with this deck, especially with either Baneslayer Angel or Akroma, Angel of Wrath out. You could also look into using Angelic Overseer that would also pair well with Odric but I do not know how well you get/keep your human's out. Just an idea.

You should maybe think about angels that really shut your opponent down like Angelic Arbiter

also big angels (i know they can be a little pricey but) Baneslayer Angel is always a good bet. oh and Emeria sheperd is amazing in mono white.

Love the Angel deck. Both Baneslayer Angel and Firemane Avenger do good work in my own Angel brew, which focuses more on multiple combats. Aurelia leads the deck, and CMC hasn't been a problem for me. Her haste-iness more than compensates for that 1 extra mana.

I too have an Ange tribal deck (Whom God Loves), so one thing I'd suggest for COMPLETE overkill is Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. You've got the red sources in Birbs and Sages, so meeting her single red devotion shouldn't be an issue. I'd also suggest Linvala, Keeper of Silence and she can just come down and hose down a lot of things.

Another thing: Baneslayer Angel should be in this deck, she's too good NOT to run and becomes priority number one the instant you announce you're casting her.

And my final suggestion: Sigarda, Host of Herons (the old one!) is a BEATING. She's hard to answer and has a big body, what's not to love?

Lastly, a couple land suggestions that are in no universe budget (but you can run if you find extra cash to be weighting down your pocket). They are Horizon Canopy and Cavern of Souls. Cavern hoses control and taps for anything your Angels need while Canopy provides much needed card advantage to help you refuel in those grinds matches. Just a few suggestions from a fellow Angels player!

These are angels you could add

Angel of Finality

Emeria Angel

Gisela, the Broken Blade

Stoic Angel

Sublime Archangel

Voice of All

Archangel of Thune

Baneslayer Angel

Blinding Angel

Karmic Guide

Radiant, Archangel

Shattered Angel

Sigarda, Heron's Grace

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Admonition Angel

Pristine Angel

Angel of Serenity

Angel of the Dire Hour

Akroma, Angel of Wrath

Empyrial Archangel

Reya Dawnbringer

I think you could take out Emancipation Angel, Illusory Angel, Guardian Seraph, Indomitable Archangel, Lightkeeper of Emeria, Malach of the Dawn, Seraph of Dawn, Avenging Angel, Herald of the Host, Patron of the Valiant, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Archangel, Angel of Salvation

I also think you could cut some lands, 38 is a good number. Bant Panorama, Seaside Citadel are good to add back in

Harsh Mercy seems good as well

you have very little enter the battlefield effects, maybe add Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff

It seems like your heavy hitters are 4 mana and up, so i think your ramp should cost less than 4. This way you're not decieding betweenn casting an angel or ramping for other angels. Maybe cut Explosive Vegetation for Rampant Growth. you could cut Belbe's Portal and Quicksilver Amulet for that same reasoning. You could add Simic Signet, Selesnya Signet and Azorius Signet for more ramp as well

Maybe cut Caged Sun for Mirari's Wake.

I think you need some card draw as well. maybe Rhystic Study or Distant Melody, Zendikar Resurgent

You could run some anthems to pump your team as well, I think Door of Destinies could be really good in this type of deck

Lurking Predators is the Quicksilver Amulet type effect you want i think. maybe take out Selvala's Stampede for it?
