I can also add in 4x Thought Scour for your Mechanized Production and Exquisite Archangel - also checking to see if you got my last message.

I made a 5 color deck that did this exact thing two or three years ago before I found tappedout and then tore it apart for the inconsistency of 5 colors and needing to get all those combo pieces. I mean, now you have Exquisite Archangel and card:Gideon of the Trials. +1 nonetheless as I honestly am glad to experience some sort of nostalgia that actually works! I playtested it twice, but never used the general or any of the swing dudes, ie Geist of Saint Traft. Any reason why you chose him?

Lastly, I would like to suggest at least a Sol Ring. Playtesting without any mana rocks felt extremely weird (but that may just be me). Selective Memory might be a cool deal to cut all the cards you don't "need", especially if you die and have Lich's Mirror on field. Curse of Exhaustion might be a tech card based on meta. I play against a lot of combo decks and can sometimes lose to them before I'm even set up. I've found Curse to be a great way to slow down the one person who is the most trouble.

Again +1

Metallic Mimic in place of Oath of Ajani maybe, sure Ajani can get more counters at once but then becomes obsolete since your only running one walker

Vault of the Archangel in place of Reflecting Pool as a test? If your mana colors seem to typically work out the added ability to give deathtouch and lifelink, combined with Archangel of Thune can make things big real fast.

Stoic Angel over Moat for a slight 'budget' cut and another angel :P But yes i know it won't have the same impact

Sublime Archangel to replace Platinum Angel or Exquisite Archangel to give an alternate win con, attack with one super powered angel, leaving defense up incase you don't have vigilance, or to avoid losing the board state to something like bouncing or exiling all attacking creatures

Welcome on T/O!As the member above said, get a higher land count. Otherwise you would experience mana screws most of the time.

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

Nice seeing an Angels theme pop up. I had to look, since I love playing Angels too.

Maybe I can still be of any help while I am here. Did you think of these options:

It looks promising, but I think you should put some cheaper creatures in there to crew the vehicles sooner!

Maybe 2 more Gearshift Aces and add 4 Trusty Companions.

You could also put a few Mountains in there to add guys like Renegade Wheelsmith, Depala, Pilot Exemplar, and Veteran Motorist!

It may also be good to take out some of the expensive creatures. Wispweaver Angel and Airdrop Aeronauts are fun together, but they cost a lot of mana and don't work too well with anything else in the deck. I do think Exquisite Archangel is worth keeping, though!

Spirits Thanks for the ideas - after looking at your comments, I would have to agree with those critiques, so I added Balefire Dragon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Deathless Angel and Exquisite Archangel, and dropped Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls and Duelist's Heritage. I'll give it a run this way and see how it performs. There are a couple other tweaks included as well - hopefully it can keep up with my Animar and Leovold decks this way. Thanks again.

Angel's Trumpet is an oldie but goodie.

Phyrexian Unlife + Delaying Shield/Melira, Sylvok Outcast combo might work here if you go hardcore and find yourself losing life too quick.

Eternity Vessel and Exquisite Archangel help in that regard as well.

Having an indestructible (cough Stuffy Doll) block with stuff like Godsend with cards like Defensive Formation to do epic stuff.

And lastly, stuff like Avatar of Hope + Indestructibility / Darksteel Plate / Spirit Mantle
