Im glad to see a new player building a 3 color deck! Many new players stick to the 1 or 2 color builds to keep it simple. I see where you are going with your deck, but I have a few suggestions. Many of these are things you will see in tons of decks as "staple cards" while playing with other people. I am sticking to budget suggestions you can add in for $10-15 and can be used in any deck if you choose to build another.

  • I do agree that you should take advantage of the green in your deck to add some ramp spells. Llanowar Elves, Cultivate and Skyshroud Claim are all recent reprints that would be budget buys for the deck.

-Your land base needs a little work since you are running three colors, but once again you can do this on a budget! Any of the bounce lands from Iconic Masters are all super cheap and help with color fixing. Boros Garrison, Gruul Turf and Selesnya Sanctuary give you 2 colors and bounce a land so you dont miss the following land drop if you're short. Also any of the tapped dual lands from M19 will work too, theyre not fast but they work. I would also look into getting Command Tower, Opal Palace, Evolving Wilds and Myriad Landscape. These are some budget staple cards you will learn along the way from play experience. Also you can lose 1-2 lands to free up space for other cards. 36-37 lands is your standard land count.

-I see why you like the idea of the cards that say on your next end step lose the game since you're running Exquisite Archangel but its alot of focus on something that can be shut down and then you lose! Since your spells are not permanents, you cant give the "game ending effects" to your opponents. I would take them out for other spells or some artifacts to help boost you ramp/speed. Put in a Sol Ring (staple in all EDH decks) or some signets: Gruul Signet, Selesnya Signet or Boros Signet.

-Put in a few more creatures to get value from Mayael the Anima's ability. A lot of new cards are 5 or more power with some enter the battlefield effects like Demanding Dragon.

Those are my budget build ideas for you to work on, I like the deck and the commander. While you're playing with people write down names of cards or take a picture of cards that you see people playing that would work in your deck. You'd be surprised at some of the budget cards that are really powerful with the right commander! Let me know if you have questions about anything, and welcome to the wonderful world of EDH!!!

I definitely know exactly what you mean. My builds issue in meta is more towards Terminus, Devastation Tide, Evacuation, and the dreaded Cyclonic Rift on top of your average board wipes.

I’m fast to start, but a glass cannon is only as good as it’s abilitu to stay relevant without interruption. Teferi's Protection gets me around this Stunning Reversal is another addition I’m considering. Running these two together would force me to run Exquisite Archangel once again.

I use to run Crackling Doom, but it doesn’t always work well. It gives them a choice of creature if there is a tie, and greatest power does not mean greatest threat. Least to say it just couldn’t make the cut as a top pick for card slots.

One card that will eventually save her from losing a game is Exquisite Archangel. Its saved me a couple of times.

Lyra Dawnbringer may just only be good on her own cause she is basically a Baneslayer Angel but what if we could use her even more because of her Other angels you control gains +1/+1 and lifelink clause?

Dominaria other angels than Lyra Dawnbringer are Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Serra Angel

Amonkeths angels are Angel of Sanctions, Winged Shepherd Seraph of the Suns, Angel of Sanctions and Angel of Condemnation

Kaladesh Angel of Invention and Wispweaver Angel and Exquisite Archangel.

We have Oketra's Monument which can make all angels cheeper and fill the board with 1/1 tokens which can block early game creatures which also have synergy with Angel of Invention and Benalish Marshal.

soo maybe a mono white control deck?

i've tinkered with a deck with this theme but still what do you think are angels too expensive and it will be to clunky or will it be the second coming of Baneslayer Angel?

Okay I'm not great at stay stuff, but here's what I can do. Phyrexian Rebirth is a must, Exquisite Archangel is not great, Herald of Anguish is really not great, especially for its cost, it's worth considering whether Sun Titan does enough, as well as honestly Zur the Enchanter. Maybe this should just be a Sen Triplets control build?
