Don't sleep on Brave the Elements . It's useful against control and burn and worth sideboarding. This card saved my butt more than a few times when I ran Soul Sisters when it was standard.

I would start out with cutting a lot of those enchantments like, Crusade , Honor of the Pure , Divine Sacrament and Marked by Honor . Why would you want that many anthem effect on already "huge" bodies?

I dont know your meta, but at least in my playgroup i had the problem with mono w angel tribal that its just too slow, So i had to have more removal to even survive.

Cards that i suggest are (There are way more but these come to mind first): Emeria Shepherd - Just too good recursion, gets more out from your grave than Reya, Pearl Medallion - Helps with ramping, Angelic Arbiter - Makes opponents choose between casting or attacking, Guardian of the Gateless - make this guy indestructible and its a golden blocker against go wide decks, Hour of Revelation - Hits all nonland permanents, and in multiplayer game easy to cast for 3 mana, Return to Dust - One of the best spot removals, Brave the Elements - cheap way to protect your dudes from something nasty, Cleansing Nova - Mass removal that lets you choose mode, yes please, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Just way too good mana for mono colored deck,

Ordeal of Heliod is actually a god tier level card and i never even knew about its existence, im pretty sure i'll add it. Brave the Elements does sound better as well. Thanks for the input.

Looks good.

I suggest swapping Brave the Elements in place of Shelter , as the lower CMC will fit your mana-base better and its wide range makes lethal strikes more likely.

I think if you're playing very casual games, Saltskitter could be worth including up to 2x. However, I generally agree with wallisface's assessment. I'm guessing you're already aware of Norin the Wary and consider him too pricey. Norin would definitely be worth playing in this Soul Sisters style build, but would increase the cost quite a bit, as you'd really need good lands to make it consistent enough.

Ordeal of Heliod also comes to mind as a possible fit for this build.

Hope you're playtesting this!!

ulmo Hey, thanks for looking at it! I've been agonizing over running Steward of Valeron or Knight of the White Orchid , and eventually decided to go with the Steward since the other one only fetches if I don't already have more lands, whereas the Steward will always tap for G. I might still swap those around a bit depending on how the deck flows, but I haven't had any trouble with the land count (especially with the London mulligan). I'm interested in the first strike part, though. Definitely going to try it out.

Conclave Tribunal and Song of Freyalise are mostly in there because they play super well with vigilance, and I need some form of evasion. The trample Song provides is a nice addition to the unblockable I get from Brave the Elements , and it has ramped me on second main a ton. Also a bit of a thematic include, as a sort of Lady of the Lake figure.

Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:

You do also need some cards to add support which you have a few of but these three are pretty hefty; Iroas, God of Victory , Purphoros, God of the Forge and Hero of Bladehold .

You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .

Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:

I know your goal isn't to nessecarily win via commander damage but these two cards I find are helpful and threaten any opponent usually... Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice

Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs

Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.
