heyzeus_ It's been a while since I've updated this deck and asked for your advice, but this is the completed deck! I don't actually own all these cards. Those cards being Admonition Angel , Angel of Jubilation , Baneslayer Angel , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Cavern of Souls , and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Other than that i'm both sad and happy to have this deck be my very expensive baby. One problem though, I need to remove one card out of this deck and I don't really know what to choose. The one thing this deck does very well is ramp which is surprising for mono white. It also gains life very easily when there are angels out. But it didn't have card draw, which I'm hoping the artifacts fixed that problem. I don't want to remove any of the artifacts or enchantments everything else I'm open to. The only cards I can think of removing is Exquisite Archangel or Reya Dawnbringer .

Reya Dawnbringer can definitely go. Suuuper high mana cost & if you're relying on her to fetch creatures the game is probably over anyway.

Bruna, the Fading Light is also extremely high mana cost for a relatively weak ability (compared to cost anyway); and that'd let you drop both Gisela, the Broken Blade . Melding creatures are generally not optimal without a way to search your library for the other half. It's a lot of deck space and mana cost & you can easily win with your other angels well before then.

I'm also not a huge fan of Exquisite Archangel . Her effect is rather good, but I see this card playing better in a Two-Headed Giant game where your starting life is higher than 20. 20 damage is really not a whole lot, and if you're at a point in the game where you're using her exile ability to survive, it's not likely you'll be able to pull ahead even with an extra 20 life.

So, 1 Reya, 1 Bruna, 2 Gisela, and 1 Exquisite Archangel ~~ That's 5 cards freed up right there (as well as dropping some of your higher mana cost cards)

It doesn't end the turn, but Platinum Angel and Exquisite Archangel both stop you from losing

+1 for Mayael, but needs more Godsire . How have you enjoyed playing this deck? Do you find you need much removal for your playgroup? If you have issues against wide decks, maybe something like Balefire Dragon will help or similar effects.

Also I've really like running Chance for Glory as a finisher in my deck. Its amazing. I always combine it with Exquisite Archangel and or Platinum Angel so I dont lose lol. Also, if tokens are getting you down, Elemental Mastery will give you the tools to wreak havoc and provide. Here is my deck for reference, but your deck looks pretty dope!!

Hi! Love your list. Mayael is such a cool commander in that every list always looks so different. Yours definitely looks dope. I love a mean Mayael list +1.

There's honestly not much I would change. Awesome job getting a Sensei's Divining Top . I'm still trying to track one down. Also, Protean Hulk is not banned anymore, and you can use him to tutor those weenie cards that get sent to the bottom of the library with Mayael, like Selvala. Definitely recommend. I also recommend Chord of Calling . For instant speed, it's amazing. I always search for Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

Some new cards I've had great success with: Response / Resurgence and Wilderness Reclamation the first of which is great utility, and the second of which lets you play spells, AND then untap for a Mayael activation during your opponents turn. One card has been AMAZING for me: Chance for Glory . I understand it's not for everyone, but I run Platinum Angel and Exquisite Archangel effects and it works amazingly well. Here's my list for reference,Chapter 1: The Safari Zone {Primer} and I would of course appreciate any advice or uproots as well. Good luck with the deck!!

Yeah together we have both progressed our decks extremely far! Ironically he is running a black deck, and he has also finally taken full advantage of sacrifices, card/card removal, life gain drain and now so how Eldrazi.

After recently play testing my deck a couple times I completely agree with you about Archangel's Light. It doesn't make sense for me because I'm always "praying" for the next big bomb or the right card on my card draw. The sideboard for me at the moment is basically cards I can't decide if I should add or not but still consider to be an extremely good for this deck. Hence why I'm here for advice!

So the thing about Lumbering Battlement is I consider it to be a protection card from me. I use it like I would use Faith's Reward or Sudden Disappearance , expect if no one tries to attack me after that then I get a free swing in before board wiping and yet simultaneously getting all my creatures back. Helm of host I have mixed feeling on that because it has actually won games for me. Depending on who I equip it to, like Lyra Dawnbringer which just makes all angels stronger for every time it creates a token or Exquisite Archangel I can sacrifice a token instead of the original angel, Angelic Skirmisher for the first strike and vigilance, Aegis Angel granting all angels close to indestructible or even artifacts, Angel of Serenity can basically exile my whole graveyard or opponents field. I see your point about it being a nine cost but in tell my friends get smart about trying to destroy it might as well keep it. Angelheart Vial Single handily made me win game but I agree it will also go in exchange for Pristine Talisman . I will defiantly try out Mana Tithe again sadly I just haven't used in game but I'm sure you are not wrong about its use!

Thank you heyzeus_ for fallowing my updates! Your support has really helped me shaped this deck into what it is today! I got my first copy on this deck so it's made me extremely happy and proud, just can't believe how much I've put into this deck though... but it has been worth it and of course I will continue to make it better. What are your thoughts on Ugin's Nexus considering I board-wipe and get ride of artifacts.

Exquisite Archangel finde ich nicht gut, da sie den Tod nur minimal herauszögert. Harsh Mentor ist zu random und schlecht. Indulgent Tormentor ist nicht gut, da er dem Gegner die Wahl gibt. Du wirst also nie etwas ziehen. Und "Loss of life" wird nicht durch deine ganzen Karten vervielfacht. Neheb, the Eternal Afflict bringt nichts, da es loss of life und nicht damage ist und die zweite Fähigkeit ist nicht verlässlich genug. Tunnel Ignus ist einfach nur schlecht

Ansonsten sieht's lustig aus :)
