Blinding Angel Discussion

I listened to the CMDR podcast and that brought me here. I play a boros deck however it is a more control style iroas build the list is here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/10-06-15-wifes-boros/ . Wanted to reccomend a few cards and see what you think.
Unlike CMDR central I am a big fan of a sunforger package espically in your deck as the +4/+0 on Aurelia, the Warleader can make a huge difference on your clock and be removed to blink her.
I would like to recommend the following additions to your Sunforger package:
- Mistveil Plains, This allows you to reuse one of you sunforger targets by putting it back into your deck from your graveyard
- Comeuppance, I consider this an upgrade to Safe Passage as it still prevents damage but also reflects it back to the source of the damage.
- Expedition Map, This does not ramp the land out like Wayfarer's Bauble does but it allows you to find any land you need not just a basic
As for other cards to think about for your deck I would consider these Creatures: (I went with an angel theme)
- Angelic Page
- Blinding Angel
- Voice of All
- Angel of Serenity, Please note you can exile cards in a graveyard with this, and when it leaves they go back to a players hand
- Angel of Sanctions
- Angel of Condemnation
Non Creatures: As I went with the Angel theme Urza's Incubator to amke all your angels 2 cheaper, I agree with CMDR central to play Pearl Medallion, also might want to consider Seal of the Guildpact, Lastlythink about Sudden Demise it is similar to Aurelia's Fury but kills the creatures instead of making them not able to block.

hmm description is very confusing, but it's a kaalia deck so I got lead to here.
I'm going to guess the deck is kinda budget focused and an angel tribal and will try to suggest cards along those lines (though really the best thing to do for this deck would be to upgrade the land base).
Blinding Angel can allow you to lock out a creature based opponent from getting combat steps.
Boros Charm has quite a few functions, you can save your creatures from removal, turn your Armageddon into a one sided mass land destruction, or could give say a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight (also suggest, big dmg while also being good protection) double strike resulting in a 20 dmg swing (or more).
Cover of Darkness is an avoidance giving enchantment I've considered in the past with my Heavenly Rakdos back when I didn't have as many ways to give kaalia avoidance. In this heavier one tribe version you may see a lot more mileage out of it.
it seems you have a heavy indestructible focus on your angelic army, General's Regalia can help them protect you.

Then again if you are running any of these because their pet cards or you like the art or enjoy peoples reaction to them then, by all means, run them. But assuming you're looking for power level i'd cut these.

There's lots of options but do also be care of creature cards that say "When monster attacks" because when cheated it, they are not technically attacking because they weren't there during the declare attackers step in combat so their ability doesn't work if they were put in by Kaalia. Enter the battlefield effects are usually better unless the attack ability is too good not to have for a second swing in.

as far as suggestions, Teferi's Protection, Austere Command (as well as other board-wipes), Oblation, Recollect, Regrowth, and Dawn Charm are some of my favorite cards in these colors. I think that Blinding Angel would be a great fit into the theme of this deck. making you opponents skip a combat step?! it's great! especially if they already can't attack you with more than one creature most turns.
Also other ways I've seen this commander built is as a Voltron commander, using green to ramp and white for equipment spells, attaching things like Sword of Feast and Famine or Blade of Selves for heavy commander damage.
as far as protection, don't forget things like Ranger's Guile and Rebuff the Wicked. giving your stuff hexproof is a kind of counterspell essentially. cause it makes your stuff an invalid target. so the spell fizzles.
Also did I mention Teferi's Protection? it's seriously amazing. just... I can't even express to you how much every deck that runs white needs this card.

This ended up being really, really long...so if it's TL;DR or you feel too critical, feel free to delete it (I wouldn't even complain at this point). Hard to really see this as an "Enchantress" deck while only being able to use Mesa Enchantress and NOT including a Serra's Sanctum to boot. Much more simply an Enchantment heavy Angel deck, which I definitely approve of since I love both Enchantments and Angels, but the title is misleading.
Enchantress is a deck centered around the Enchantress triggers of Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Eidolon of Blossoms; and if you're adding a color, you add White so you can use Mesa Enchantress and Femeref Enchantress. Without this core, it's not Enchantress.
As for the rest of the deck, it looks like it should be able to hold its own, but would probably improve with some cheaper Angels or more ramp. I used to run Voltron Akroma, Angel of Wrath and had to use tons of mana rocks just to make it playable. Akroma also cost 5WWW to get the FIRST time soooo....yeah...
Angels:Serra Avenger, Angelic Page, Emancipation Angel, Seraph of the Sword, Sustainer of the Realm, Angel of Condemnation, Seraph of Dawn, Blinding Angel, Herald of the Host, Angel of Sanctions, Angelic Arbiter, Angel of Serenity, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Resolute Archangel, Archangel of Thune, Baneslayer Angel, Serra Ascendant, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Iona, Shield of Emeria.
Enchantments:Serra's Blessing, Brave the Sands, True Conviction, Righteous Cause, Aura of Silence, Blind Obedience, Endless Horizons, Spirit Loop, Karmic Justice, Nevermore, Seal of Cleansing, Sphere of Safety, Spiritual Focus, Starfield of Nyx, Worship, Moat, Test of Endurance
Rocks/Ramp:Land Tax is pricey, but the best mono white land grabber in the game.Gilded Lotus, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Manalith, Fellwar Stone, Spectral Searchlight, Darksteel Ingot, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Pristine Talisman, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Explorer's Scope, Thunder Totem, Marble Diamond.
Other:Door of Destinies, Herald's Horn, Howling Mine, Demystify, Disenchant, Fragmentize, Forsake the Worldly, Fumigate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Approach of the Second Sun, Faith Healer, Grand Abolisher, Open the Vaults, Replenish, Second Sunrise, Oketra's Monument
A number of these are pretty pricey (and definitely out of my price range) but as someone who plays White in every format he plays, a Tribal player and an Enchantress player, I can go on and on and on about these kinds of decks...This deck happens to have a White-centric tribe and is Enchantment based. XD My apologies.

Blinding Angel is officially on the chopping block. I'm either going to replace her with Lyra or Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle (Teshar from here on out). Lyra offers a hell of a lot of value in combat while Teshar gives me recurrence of my smaller legends.
Kagemaro, First to Suffer offers me an option to wipe the board should I need to, but I already have a lot of wipes. Should she be bumped by Lyra, Teshar, or Sidisi, Undead Vizier for that sweet sweet tutor effect? Should I keep her in there and add a Reliquary Tower so I can actually capitalize on her ability with out losing my hand?
Kambal, Consul of Allocation might be chopped if his ability can't be put to good use. Would I just be better switching him out for Tymna the Weaver or perhaps Mikaeus, the Lunarch for additional buff? Perhaps because of all the board wipes I'm running, I should just replace him with Teysa, Orzhov Scion for a little post-board wipe recovery?
Assuming more white legends take the black legends place, would it be worth it to run Mogis's Marauder ? The dude is a hell of a haymaker, but I realize with each black mana symbol lost, he becomes more useless. If that were the case, should I just use Blood Artist as a post-wipe gut punch?
