Bruna, the Fading Light Discussion

Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade are solid includes that won't break the bank.

If you have some extra budget look at Platinum Angel as a way to stall out the game and Avacyn, Angel of Hope to blank a lot of removal spells.

As you are in mardu colours I would definitely look at adding some more removal. Path to Exile Swords to Plowshares Utter End Anguished Unmaking Austere Command and maybe even Crackling Doom.

I would also definitely get some haste enablers such as Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves to acutally get some value off Kalia before she is removed. She is a massive means of drawing aggro from other players as she doesn't play fair.

Welcome to the game!
To build off of what Cypher said, consistency is key in building a powerful deck. Having a ton of cool different cards is fun, but if you want to win you want to maximize your chances of drawing the cards you need at any given time. The easiest way to do that is to determine what the "best" cards for you to play on any given turn are and maximize the number of copies you run of them.
To start with your 1 drops: You definitely want to play a creature on turn 1 to start the beatdown and the lifegain. Beloved Princess is a great choice, and Healer's Hawk could work too. Lone Pegasus is fine but not great if you want to lean into the lifegain strategy. Chaplain's Blessing and Outflank should probably come out.
Daxos and Birth of Meletis are great in your 2 drops slot, everything else I think could be reconsidered. Ajani's Pridemate is a MUST for this deck - it's arguably the strongest lifegain-matters card in the game. I'd pick up a playset right away! Declaration in Stone is decent removal you could run in this slot, or Seal Away if you're on a budget. 2-3 copies of Dawn of Hope could do wonders for you as well. You could consider Bishop of Wings if you wanted to go the angels route.
Banishing Light is pretty good at 3 mana, as is Linden. Other cards I'd consider in that slot are Angel of Vitality as Cypher mentioned, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, and Resplendent Angel.
Angelic Accord is great at 4 cmc, I'd definitely up the number of copies you're running to 2 or 3. Ajani, Strength of the Pride is also an incredible fit for this deck. Cast Out or Conclave Tribunal could be a nice replacement for Banishing Light if your 3 drop slot gets too full. Gisela, the Broken Blade could be a fun include.
Lyra Dawnbreaker feels like a no-brainer include in this deck.
Maybe Sephara, Sky's Blade as a top-end, seeing how many fliers you are and could be running. Or if you wind up running Gisela, then you could run Bruna, the Fading Light as your top end. You'd probably want to up your land count by 1 or 2 if you plan on that though.

Those are all just suggestions - feel free to play the deck however you find it most fun! If you want more detailed suggestions about what I'd cut or what numbers I'd add, feel free to let me know!

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

I like what you've come up with. The angel subtheme is very fitting. With 12 angels, you could consider adding Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light. The reanimation is great, and Brisela is a nightmare once she hits the board.

You might have an easier time running Bruna, the Fading Light as your commander because you have the far more useful of the two combo in the commandzone and Bruna can be a lot more versatile than Gisela. You should consider Tithe, Solemn Simulacrum, Land Tax, and Nyx Lotus to help with that mana.

I really don't like Nylea and Ripjaw for the card draw. Have you considered The First Iroan Games? For more comandery-options I still like better you could try Colossal Majesty, Elemental Bond, Dawn of Hope, Keeper of Fables, or Return of the Wildspeaker?

For shoring up the Aggro matchup, maybe go with Bishop of Wings? It's a great blocker and the lifegain can get pretty crazy if you get your Resplendent Angels going. Gisela, the Broken Blade is a pretty great card too, I really like her in Pioneer where there are so few bolts in sight ;) You can also play a single copy of Bruna, the Fading Light for maximum spice!

You are correct. When not on the battlefield meld creatures turn back into two seperate cards and have have the characteristics of the front side of those cards. This means that the casting restriction will be on Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light .

If my Brisela, Voice of Nightmares gets Exiled with Ixalan's Binding , does that mean I can no longer cast either Gisela, the Broken Blade or Bruna, the Fading Light ?

My guess is that once Exiled, Brisela sort of breaks up into her two halves, both of which are Exiled.

Recently I got the foil versions of Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade . I've been trying to think of fun decks to build around them (With Bruna as the commander) but I can't think of anything. Do you have any interesting ideas.

Quick note: I'm looking for something a little budget friendly and have already tried reanimator and angel tribal
