Bruna, the Fading Light Discussion
1 week ago
Epochalyptik Not really a combo, per se... Just a way to get out Brisela, Voice of Nightmares quicker. Cast Gisela, the Broken Blade out early in the game, then exert Champion of Rhonas to get Bruna, the Fading Light out and use it to summon out Gisela, the Broken Blade therefore getting it out as easily as turn 5.

Yo, huge fan of Angel's here and I've got some recommendations for you.
I see that your deck is largely centered around lifegain as well, if that's the case there's no reason not to run Baneslayer Angel and her little sister Gisela, the Broken Blade. Big Angels with lifelink? Awesome! I can attest to the fact that Baneslayer is a beating and a half.
My next recommendation would be to run a second colour, namely green as Angels are expensive and green is the ramp colour. Things like Explore, Sylvan Caryatid, and Birds of Paradise both help you ramp early. Now the best payoff Angel if you're running green is Sigarda, Host of Herons. She is so much more powerful than her SoI counterpart and is really tough to kill. Resolve her early with any of the ramp I listed and your opponent is in for a nightmare.
Now there are many more Angels I can reccomend, so let's do just that.
Angel of Sanctions, Angel of Serenity, and Admonition Angel all have powerful Oblivion Ring style effects that clear blockers or threats for the rest of your team. Angel of Serenity in particular is a massive swing and will often win games on her own.
If you need recursion (and it's never a bad thing to have), Bruna, the Fading Light really surprised me with how good she is and wins the game almost instantly if you can meld her with Gisela.
Now, if you're doing this then you should for sure go up on lands, 23-24 would be fine and works for my Angel deck. Also, if you insist on being mono-white then Endless Horizons is a hysterical card that fixes the problem ofndrawing lands late game and gives you a steady supply of them.
If you want more ideas, check out my Angel deck, Whom God Loves. Have a nice one!

@ amh62993 - This deck is horrific!
...bad puns aside, allow me to suggest a few things for your consideration.
Consuming Aberration is a card I think has a place in any Dimir build. Many think it is only relevant in mill decks, but really this beast just minds its own business. Sure, you won't win the game with this as your only mill engine. But you will definitely put your opponents at a disadvantage while you get a huge beater.
The following creatures are part of the Consuming Aberration Fan Club: Sewer Nemesis is the president; Nemesis of Reason is the treasurer; Nighthowler hypes up the group; Guiltfeeder is the jerk that makes fun of people outside the club; Geralf's Mindcrusher is the guy that only comes like twice, never to be seen again.
Phyrexian Revoker is wonderful commander hate (or any creature with an activated ability too good to let happen)
Mindleech Mass is expensive to put down, but that ability...
Void Maw can be a finisher late-game.
Greater Harvester (which honestly feels more like a Demon than a Horror)
And, of course, Phyrexian Librarian
Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

I'm delighted to hear that my suggestions have been so well received! Looking at your list, it now boasts a clock that it didn't before. Regardless of whether Descendants' Path nabs a scary angel, it has the added benefit of threatening to do so. Opponents will never feel safe if you have this, and an angel on the board.
That being said, there are a couple of angels that I'm not the biggest fan of. These two could be replaced by two extra copies of Bruna, the Fading Light improve your inevitability. Akroma, Angel of Wrath folds to Path to Exile (unlike her red counterpart), and doesn't feel super good for an eight-drop. Reya Dawnbringer, while good, also loses to a Path, whereas Bruna will benefit your board-state the moment she hits the field. Also, Bruna can be flickered with Restoration Angel to start rebuilding the board faster (and possibly bring back Gisela for the meld).
So, there's one final thing that I noticed. Most of the Angels in your deck have a bagillion different keywords on them. So...what better jank way to win than a singleton copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal? Just a thought.

Hello Again xyr0s
Talking about Miracles, can I ask your opinion about Temporal Mastery ?Should I grab one or two, or is it just too risky to have a 7 Mana dead Miracle in your hand ??
As for my creatures:
Aurelia, the Warleader and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight are both here for the lulz I gotta say. But they gave TONS OF FUN. I mean, Aurelia has huge value on her own, combo'ed with Entreat and Lightning Angels she is very brutal. Same goes for Gisela.
Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade are my two of my all-time favorites cards. Each time I played Brisela, I won. Bruna can bring my other Angels on the board, which combo nicely I think.
But, do you have any suggestions ?? I'm aware that those creatures are slowing down my deck, so I'm open to all suggestions !! :)
Thanks again for your suggestions, I shall update my Acquirelist right away :)

Played in Amonkhet std showdown today. Went 2-1. Very good.First game i played against r/u emerge, with Prized Amalgam, Elder Deep-Fiends etc.Lost the first game due to mana problems (no green mana after i mulled to six). Should mull to five. silly of me. Second and third game won after sideboarding Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.Second game played against bant fog control. Heavy counterspells, only one Torrential Gearhulk and oneGideon of the Trials as finishers. Lost 2-0. Very grindy , long game, very skill intensive. Did have some bad draws.. Lost in rounds, after time was called.Third game was against mardu vehicles. Won 2-0. Both games, i had Brisela, Voice of Nightmares and it was awesome.Linvala, the Preserver also did wonders in this match.Playing the deck, i realized that the deck has bad matchups against control.Thus i'll try Dispel on the sb. I didn't have any answer to counter magic or board interaction except Ulamog or tamiyo....Any help here would be great.In other matchups, the deck flows great.. And Tamiyo, Field Researcher does so much work for us.I played her so many times on T4 tapping my opponents big threats, gaining so much time.Casting Bruna, the Fading Light to bring back Cloudblazer or Rogue Refiner is just value..Let me know what you think!!Any help is much appreciated!!

Hey man, sweet idea. Totally inspiring. I am not sure how I feel about Champion of Rhonas however. He doesn't give you a cast trigger, making him not "THE NUTS" with Bruna, the Fading Light or any other creatures really. I think more often then not, Gisela, the Broken Blade will die before Bruna lands - and you'll want to buy her back to make Brisela (so you want that cast trigger). I just find him slow. I would consider changing him out for something like Linvala, the Preserver or (what I would probably go with) Archangel Avacyn Flip.
