Bishop of Wings Discussion

This may seem like a stupid suggestion at first, but I'd consider 1-3 Crypt of the Eternals. It doesn't really take up a card slot and doesn't change your gameplan at all, but it allows you to go
Turn 1: White source
Turn 2: untapped white source, Bishop of Wings
Turn 3: Crypt of the Eternals (gain 1 life), Resplendent Angel (gain 4 life off of Bishop), move to end step and immediately trigger Resplendent Angel, make a 4/4, gain another 4.

I played mono-white angels/lifegain in standard when Resplendent was legal, and you wouldn't believe the number of people that just concede when you gain 9 life and make 7 flying power over 2 bodies on turn 3. Crypt lets you do that for the price of being a colorless land - I think well worth including a few.
Also worth noting is that you get the same effect with Radiant Fountain (and one bonus life), but the bonus life doesn't help the combo and it can't filter to red in a pinch the way crypt can. Wind-Scarred Crag can help you do the same thing later in the game, but since it enters tapped it can't be your T3 land drop and also play Resplendent.

I really don't like Nylea and Ripjaw for the card draw. Have you considered The First Iroan Games? For more comandery-options I still like better you could try Colossal Majesty, Elemental Bond, Dawn of Hope, Keeper of Fables, or Return of the Wildspeaker?

For shoring up the Aggro matchup, maybe go with Bishop of Wings? It's a great blocker and the lifegain can get pretty crazy if you get your Resplendent Angels going. Gisela, the Broken Blade is a pretty great card too, I really like her in Pioneer where there are so few bolts in sight ;) You can also play a single copy of Bruna, the Fading Light for maximum spice!

HARDsofty it's not that great, since it doesnt activate Bishop of Wings by itself, doesnt provide you tokens, nor gives you white mana. I would go with either plains or a utility land that enhances your game.

I recommend 4x Bishop of Wings. Sustains your Life for every Angel und when an Angel dies, the Spirit Token it creates transforms in an Angel too due to Divine Visitation, giving you constant supply of Tokens and Life. Also I would run 2 copies of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame for the tokens and she lets you re-use some of your spells.

This deck is beauteous. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be a fun include since your general can tutor for Shields of Velis Vel ;) You might consider these too: Bishop of Wings, Rattlechains, Crested Sunmare, Risen Reef, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Drogskol Captain, Hero of Goma Fada, Harabaz Druid, Wirewood Channeler, Midnight Entourage, Whelming Wave.

Also, the changeling champions (Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero, Changeling Titan) could be neat since your general can tutor for them and if you loop all three of you get an arbitrary number of ETB triggers in any creature type. You could draw your deck with Azami or Risen Reef, blow up opponents' boards with Reaper King, get infinite life with Bishop of Wings!

Might I suggest Divine Visitation and Bishop of Wings ? You've creating a lot of tokens here, and if you have a sac outlet (say, Reaper of Flight Moonsilver or Phyrexian Altar ) you could gain infinite life and/or mana. AND with Anointed Procession you'd have infinite angels to boot.

so, after rigorous playtesting, I have come up with some cards to cut and add that will hopefully msk the deck better:

cuttables

  • Alabaster Kirin This does absolutely nothing, has no prison effects, and is kinda useless here

  • Baird, Steward of Argive His prison effect is okay, but you can definitely slot in better options for not too much more money

  • Knight of Sursi Once again, just a vanilla card that doesn't do anything except get a small body on the battlefield, which isnt very good in commander, even if it is indestructible

  • Misthoof Kirin Only really okay in a morph deck, this is kinda useless here

  • Oreskos Explorer just a worse Land Tax

  • Segovian Angel a 1/1 with vigilance has to swing 120 times to win. just a terrible card all around.

  • Silver Knight Kinda bad, doesn't really do much .

  • Shepherd of the Lost this would be good if it have every other creature it's abilities, but alas, it's kinda terrible, especially because I'm smelling a voltron sub-theme around Avacyn

  • White Knight Unless your in a very black heavy meta, this is just bad, and is barley passable even if you have said meta

  • Journey to Nowhere a worse Pacifism

  • All your lands except basic plains. You need more utility lands, not just non-basics that do nothing

  • Wing Shards This one is debatable, although I don't see you casting a bunch of spells and having the mana to cast this, due to the lack of ramp you have.

  • Armillary Sphere bad ramp

  • Traveler's Amulet bad ramp

  • Orazca Relic have fun waiting 5 turns to get blessing and then only drawing one card

  • Take Vengeance crappy removal

  • Bishop of Wings I don't see this deck supporting an angel tribal

Potential Add-Ins

Thanks so much for reading my list, and I hope this has been some help to you. My main problem with this deck was it ran too much inefficient removal and bad creatures, but once these are added in, I think the deck should be a lot for mean. Have a great day! =)
