Chaplain's Blessing Discussion

Ah. Then perhaps Chaplain's Blessing would be more your speed.

As a fellow Angel lover (you can see my angel tribal & taxes deck here ), I think you run many angels that are simply not good enough. Angel of Retribution, Radiant, Archangel is too fragile to mass removal, Seraph of Dawn, Seraph of the Suns, Shepherd of the Lost, Requiem Angel, Angelic Field Marshal is useless if you don't have your commander out, and if you have it you really don't need that much having viligance on all your creatures when a lot of them already have it, Exquisite Archangel (if you want this kind of effect I would prefer Resolute Archangel, that does it whenever you want), Herald of War I think is too slow, all of those I think cost too much for what they do, even Radiant, because she is too vulnerable against mass removal, although you could argue that she is good enough, I don't like her that much. I also think some of them like Silver Seraph or Shattered Angel could be removed but I'm fearing that I am going to cut too much and you will end up with less than 100 cards. Also, I'd suggest removing Iona, as hard as it is for me to say, but when my opponents stole it from me for the third time and named white I finally decided is too risky to run her in a monocolored deck.
I also think you are running some inefficient lifegain. Chaplain's Blessing is too weak, you could instead run cards like Blessed Alliance that are far more versatile, or Solemn Offering to mix targeted removal with life gain. Rest for the Weary, Sun Droplet, those ones I think are too ineficient.
Finally, some of the artifacts you run are to make your creatures able to evade more, but I don't think it is necessary when all of them already fly and are enormous, so I would cut Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm. I don't think Whispersilk Cloak is that good taking into account how many enchantments and abilities you have that target your creatures, and Sunbeam Spellbomb isn't good enough if you are not running some kind of graveyard recursion.
Finally, I would cut many of the cards you use to buff up your angels. They are already big, you don't need too many +1/+1 effects when you are always casting 5/5s, 6/6s and 7/7s. That would make Silver Seraph, Path of Bravery, Honor of the Pure, Dictate of Heliod and Light from Within cuttable.
Have you thought about adding Approach of the Second Sun? It's a nice alternate win condition that makes you gain life. I'd also think about including the OG Ajani Goldmane, it was made specifically about lifegain.

Definitely don't run 4 Felidar Sovereign. You're going to want some card advantage engines as well, I'm a fan of Thraben Inspector and Ranger of Eos. Rest for the Weary and Chaplain's Blessing are not good cards. If you insist on running cards like that, I'd suggest Ritual of Rejuvenation and a cycled Renewed Faith as they replace themselves and let you dig deeper. Ajani Goldmane may be a planeswalker for you. I'm always in favor of more interaction, so i'd suggest cards like Oblivion Ring, Declaration in Stone, and Blessed Alliance. Dusk // Dawn might be a good sideboard card for you, while it hits a flipped rider, an ascendant, and a big kitty, it clears any meaningful blockers your opponent has and gets all your creatures (except the sovereign) back.
Mentor of the Meek could also be good
This isn't really the type of deck I usually play, but I hope it was at least a little helpful

I love white weenie decks. This looks like a particularly fun iteration!
I would drop the Chaplain's Blessing, it just feels out of place here.
Launch and Coup both have great late game potential when youre sitting on a turn without much else to spend mana on.

Hi, it seems your deck is a little light on card draw and mana ramp. If I were you I would cut cards like Chaplain's Blessing, Bishop's Soldier, Duskborne Skymarcher and Rest for the Weary for Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, maybe Read the Bones or other card draw cards. I know it sound weird but you will probably need some board wipes to, try Hour of Reckoning. You might need to cut and a few more cards and add more card draw and mana ramp (suggested 10 cards of each, I know it sounds like a lot but it will help your deck run smoothly). I hope this helped, I love the deck.
