Breath of Life Discussion

I agree with having more ramp. You can do this through spells, as Chhris suggested, which are good, or you can add some more mana rocks, like the Signets: Selesnya Signet , Gruul Signet , and Boros Signet , and/or the Talismans: Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Impulse , and Talisman of Unity . I'd prefer to run one or more of these over a mana rock like Gilded Lotus . The Lotus is nice, but when ramp costs 5 CMC, you have to start to wonder if it's really ramp. I'd probably drop the Gruul Keyrune and Thran Dynamo to run some of these cheaper costed mana rocks. But that's my preference, and it would help drop the overall average CMC of your deck, which is pretty high with all the fatties you're running.

I'd look into cutting Warp World and Breath of Life , unless you just really like to mess with the table with Warp World. Breath of Life is a good reanimator spell, but it doesn't seem like it's what your plan with this deck is, and putting in another ramp spell or rock would probably be better served in that slot.

I think Anger would be a good cut, too, as it tends to run better with decks that can just throw it into the bin reliably, as opposed to just waiting for an opponent to kill it for you, or using it as sac fodder. eliakimras suggestion of Rhythm of the Wild is a good one, and if you are looking for another similar spell, Fires of Yavimaya is another budget option.

If you have the money to spend, getting cards like Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile really work well with setting up for a big Mayeal play. If you can afford to find those, they're great.

It looks like a good start, so have fun with it!

Specific Recommendations:

Creatures:

Cut:

Ancient Brontodon

Cacophodon

Gigantosaurus

Knotvine Mystic

Krosan Drover

Llanowar Elves

Needletooth Raptor

Ravenous Daggertooth

Territorial Hammerskull

Thrash of Raptors

We want to make room for some cards to help you get more dinosaurs onto the battlefield faster, and to interact with your opponents threats and spells. If you increase your card draw, you'll still draw into enough creatures to overwhelm your opponent.

Add:

Forerunner of the Empire

This tutors for a dinosaur and can trigger your engrage abilities. Sick combo with Polyraptor.

Colossal Majesty

This is going to serve as persistent card draw for keeping creatures on board, which you aim to do anyway.

Guardian Project and/or Elemental Bond

Both of these cards allow you to draw a card when a creature enters play.

Unbreakable Formation and/or Make a Stand

These can have two uses: the first use is on attack, but it also can be cast to safeguard your board from effects like Wrath of God .

Eerie Interlude

Like above, this protects your creatures from board wipes, but also works against exile and -x/-x effects like Toxic Deluge .

Resurrection and/or Breath of Life and/or Brought Back

Losing an expensive creature feels bad. Bringing it back to the battlefield for less than its casting cost helps take the sting away.

Replacements

Cut Naturalize , add Krosan Grip

Cut Fires of Yavimaya , add Rhythm of the Wild

Cut Worn Powerstone , add Sol Ring

Consider

Adding Board Wipes:

Star of Extinction and Starstorm are flavorful possibilities.

Adding a tutor or two:

Finale of Devastation is flavorful and rewards you for going big on mana.

Upgrading the mana base: I would start by replacing the "gain 1 life" lands with the "scry" lands in Core 2020, which can be had for about $2 each. From there I might look at getting a Krosan Verge and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, and gradually upgrading over time.

What else to cut / Replace

I might nix Explore and Lay of the Land , and replace them with Domri, Chaos Bringer or Domri, Anarch of Bolas (which can provide mana and either card draw or removal), or Zacama, Primal Calamity , which you essentially cast for free (or gain mana from, if you're using Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun )), since it untaps your lands if you cast it from your hand.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful. I tried to stay on the lower end of prices on this stuff.

GL;HF! :D

I see a few things that you could add in this. And possibly some you could remove. In order to play some of the bigger angels you might want to consider Quicksilver Amulet this will let you have more open mana and puts a creature out as if it had flash. Reya Dawnbringer is an amazing angel in EDH graveyard love on a body. Breath of Life is another card I would consider for the deck. With this color combo you might think about Burning Wish . This lets you keep more answers in the sideboard and having a sideboard. I would also consider removing Aura of Silence and putting Reforge the Soul in the sideboard.

Risque - I had considered Herald's Horn, and even though I am angel tribal, I don't think I am running enough to truly get value from the Horn as I only have 18. You probably want 25+ to consistently trigger the horn. The cost reduction + Urza's Incubator is nice, but if I am actually hard casting most of my angels, something has gone terribly wrong haha. On that note though, I have been strongly considering the addition of Mesmeric Orb as another self-mill option.

ClockworkSwordfish - I always forget about that card. I'll have to give it a look. I will say though, part of the reason why I don't run Breath of Life is because it's sorcery speed and not attached to a body, but the +1/+1 counters are intriguing.

I... what... what is this amazing thing?

I'll admit I have no clue how the deck plays but I love the idea.

As a side note, Breath of Life is not legal in Pauper.

You have 2 Nyxathid listed. All Hallow's Eve would work well, yes it also brings back your opponents creatures but you should have more and better creatures.Artisan of Kozilek,Journey to Eternity  Flip,Breath of Life,Corpse Connoisseur, Dawn of the Dead would all fit your theme.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

It isn't quite Modern, due to Breath of Life(7th Edition), Karoo(Visions/Commander 2014) and Longbow Archer(7th Edition). You probably want to adjust the format to Casual or change those three cards out for something that at least from 8th Edition forward on to make it modern legal and you're short one card, you have 59. Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Grand Abolisher would be a nice addition and maybe some Silences.

Samurai of the Pale Curtain is my personal favorite samurai of the Kamigawa block.

Well after my denial w/ Boros, I actually have one other plan in mind...

Should I make a Gate Deck, or what? Just asking to be sure...
