Blinding Powder Discussion

babydaggers, that's a great idea! I'll replace Angelheart Vial for that. As much as I love Angelheart Vial for the theme, art and potential card draw, it has not been as useful as I would wish for a drop card. Sun Titan will definitely be a card worth having.
I've had a ton of fun so far playing this deck. Another change I am going to make is replacing Blinding Powder with Skullclamp. Blinding Powder has just not been reliable. Staying the Monarch is a huge game-changer, so being a bit more aggressive with Skullclamp should help keep it that way.

Emzed - First off thank you very much for the detailed feedback.
Blinding Powder is reequippable to make sure he stays on the battlefield and Godsend is there for the case of not getting the hexproof, trample, ect on him quick enough. This deck is still in playtesting and those were just cards I liked. As far as blocking it'll happen eventually. Godsend and Sword of Kaldra are there to get rid of any creatures they decide to block, and the trample gets through that with full damage.
I don't want my commander to have shroud. Whispersilk Cloak is one that I am purposefully avoiding.
I kind of wanted to go to more artifact way of voltron for this deck. I'm sure aura's would make it more competitive, but it's not what I wanted. Loxodon Warhammer is there for Armadillo Cloak, Trailblazer's Boots are there for Traveler's Cloak even though I do see the difference and benefits of the aura instead of the artifact.
The two lands seem unnecessary in the deck. Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers is only +1/+1 and Llanowar Reborn is only a +1/+1 counter. This deck is voltron so the small benefits don't seem too necessary. I might do the Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers because it can enter untapped.
I do understand the more ramp aspect though. And in the form of creatures helps with Sublime Archangel. You've mentioned two cards to take out, any others?

Blinding Powder and Godsend seem unnecessary. Do you honestly expect people to block in meaningful ways against your giant double striking attackers? I would rather play Whispersilk Cloak, Hot Soup, Armadillo Cloak, Spirit Mantle, Unquestioned Authority, Rancor or Traveler's Cloak to get around blockers altogether.
Medomai the Ageless looks decent for this deck, if you grant him double strike you get multiple extra turns.
Having a fast start seems like a big deal, so maybe you want to add Arbor Elf, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl and Carpet of Flowers (that card looks very situational, but test it, if there is even a single Island somewhere on the board it's solid, and it can easily be better than Sol Ring).
Your distribution of basic lands seems off, you have too many Islands for your needs. Maybe find room for Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers or Llanowar Reborn?

Here are some suggestions of some (hopefully) useful Equipment for this deck.
First strike and more angels: Moonsilver Spear.
Hexproof: Mask of Avacyn.
Spot removal: Argentum Armor.

At first i was confused, but seeing as you wanted this to be a guardian angel deck, there isnt any other general that could fit the bill, and while Guardian Seraph is on theme, the fogs and protection make it a minor addition.
the alters are interesting, are they print-outs? (would explain the oddities in font/set symbols)
Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Aurification or Blinding Powder could help deal with your eldrazi issues, while Archangel of Tithes or Peacekeeper could add to the pillowfort of protection provided by your guardian angel(s)
also while it negates your angels Humility feels on theme.

@Reaxetion, I've actually looked at most of those cards. As far as Whispersilk Cloak and Lightning Greaves, I don't want shroud; if I give a creature shroud, I can no longer equip anymore equipments to them which is why I opted for the Swiftfoot Boots route. As for Stoneforge Mystic, I do really like tht card but I was trying to build this out of things I had just laying around; I might pick up the Sword of Feast and Famine because it will allow me to drop more equipments and hold up counterspells. That leaves Sword of Fire and Ice, Darksteel Plate, and Sword of Vengeance. All of them are three drops and cost two or three to equip. While that isn't in reality that much, I've found in playing this deck my hand tends to clutter with three drops and/or I have to only equip one or two equipments and be out of mana to hold up for counters/combat tricks. A change I'm making as soon as I find the card is taking out Loxodon Warhammer and replacing it with Vorrac Battlehorns. Other equipments I'm considering are Infiltration Lens and possibly Blinding Powder. Thanks for the feedback though.
