Creature — Human Knight
(You may cast Embereth Shieldbreaker from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)
Sorcery — Adventure
Destroy target artifact.
(You may cast Battle Display for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Battle Display, this card is treated only as Embereth Sheildbreaker in whatever zone it is in.)
(Example scenarios for Battle Display: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=1. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, you may cast their Embereth Shieldbreaker from exile. You can cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Embereth Shieldbreaker's cost.)

Embereth Shieldbreaker Discussion

Hey, it's great you're doing this for your daughter, but this is deck is not aggro, not close. It's midrange and honestly it's better that its midrange since aggro is less good in multiplayer Commander and aggro is not what you want with Angels.
Angels are about doing combat damage with flying to your opponents which Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is much better at than Anya, Merciless Angel and you have Gisela. As General Gisela doubles the flying combat damage that Angels do including herself. All Angels you control benefit from Gisela. Gisela can also help with the crack back since damage dealt to you is reduced. Anya is better as part of the 99 than as General.
For starters to upgrade your deck I would get away from aggro and focus more on how you can strengthen the midrange strategy with Angels. Examples of upgrades to improve midrange are cutting Embereth Shieldbreaker for Knight of the White Orchid, cutting Fumiko the Lowblood for Solemn Simulacrum, cutting Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas for Anger.
Cards you could cut:
- Dwarven Mine
- Idyllic Grange
- Phyrexian Soulgorger
- Embereth Shieldbreaker
- Fumiko the Lowblood
- Meteor Blast
- Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
- Jareth, Leonine Titan
- Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
- Fiendslayer Paladin
- Tajic, Legion's Edge
- Desolation Giant
- Truefire Captain
- Hunted Dragon
- Razia's Purification
- Crystal Slipper
Some other cards you could add:
- Lands: Battlefield Forge, Sacred Foundry, Rugged Prairie, Sunbaked Canyon, Clifftop Retreat
- Ramp: Talisman of Conviction, Smothering Tithe, Pearl Medallion
- Angels: Lyra Dawnbringer, Resplendent Angel, Aurelia, the Warleader
- Removal: Swords to Plowshares, Generous Gift
- Skullclamp: use it with 1/1 Soldiers that Assemble creates for a drawing engine.
- Luminarch Ascension: can be a repeatable source of Angels and it can activate fast since it looks at each opponents end step.
- Boros Charm
- Blind Obedience
- Serra Ascendant
Good luck with your deck.

Apollo_Paladin Thank you for the upvote! Since the new Theros block has rolled in I already had some changes in mind. Since my deck has gone down in mana cost I have swapped out Venerable Knight for Worthy Knight. I also think that Bone Splinters & Fling aren't really a good option simply because you have to sacrifice a creature to destroy only a another creature. With sorcery speed for bone & fling only dealing as much damage as the creatures power.
I have given The Circle of Loyalty some thought as well, but I would only end up putting in 2 mainly as a replacement for Icon of Ancestry which is now also out of the deck until I try testing it out with a few more changes. Another reason that I wouldn't really put it in the deck is because of it's mana cost. Already breing a little more heavier on white mana if you're up against someone with a lot of cheap removal you will end up using a lot of mana to cast it, in which itself can also be easily taken down with Embereth Shieldbreaker which a lot of decks with red have in sideboard including myself.
Unbreakable Formation is a good suggestion, so I have put in 2 in sideboard to see how it will go.

Have you considered Embereth Shieldbreaker for sidedeck against Embercleave or Witch's Oven + Cauldron Familiar ? I´ve encountered both often recently and your Conclave Tribunal is a bit too costy/slow/useful for that task, even with 3 CMC.

When I added Embereth Shieldbreaker I though in the new legendary artifacts, espacially Embercleave and The Magic Mirror , that I think that will be relevant in monored aggro and control. Especially The Magic Mirror , because I think that it gives a silly amount of advantage to our opponent. Also against mono red aggro decks with Embercleave (that I think that cab be competitive in future standard), Embereth Shieldbreaker can destroy the Embercleave and then also can kill mostly of the creatures that the deck has. But this is only a sideboard maked with my predictions, and probably I will change this in the future, when the metagame will be more clear.
