If you have a sac outlet, it goes infinite with Saffi Eriksdotter or Fiend Hunter

Thanks for you comment :)

First to the Desecrated Tomb . I think in an 1vs1 setting its not that great, since from my playtesting a lot of cards go to the graveyard. For a multiplayer setting, it could really get you some value, since there ppl are not paying that much life and are generally more afraid to lose life.

For Teysa Karlov I was thinking a lot to incorparate her into the deck. Problem is I can't figure out what I should cut from my list. Maybe you have an opinion for what card to cut here.

Fiend Hunter I didn't even know existed, so im not sure if Im gonna include it. So far the Banisher Priest has ben working fine for me.

Hi I have an aethreos deck myself and i am going back and fourth about Desecrated Tomb . I love its interaction with aethreos as whenever a creature is returned to your hand with aethreos you get a bat. However, it does furthur encourage people to pay the life rather than return the creature. I'd be interested to here your thoughts on the card.

Also Teysa Karlov is an instant include for me in an aethreos deck. In this particular deck she doubles the death effects of 10 of your creatures (including Reveillark which some people miss), 1 of your enchantments and your commander.

Fiend Hunter is also a better version of Banisher Priest . This is because as you can sacrifice fiend hunter in response to its first trigger, resulting in the leave the battlefield trigger resolving first and the creature actually staying exiled .

i'm noticing some problems that you have with too little recursion and too little in the ways of protecting her from targeted removal. cards like Faith's Reward , Second Sunrise , Resurrection and False Defeat are really good to make sure your creatures come back when you get blown up after you summon your god emperor angel. you also are mono white so the problem with that is your card draw is very limited to really get going. take a look at cards like Mind's Eye , Scroll Rack + Land Tax . it's a great way to draw 3 a turn for one mana. Staff of Nin is a good passive draw for you every turn and you should absolutely look at putting The Immortal Sun in your deck. card is nuts and fucks on planeswalkers at the same time which only really affects one card in your deck. other cards that will help with your voltron strategy are various cards like Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Vaults , Stonehewer Giant and Stoneforge Mystic . various equipments that are really good for what you wanna do are things like Champion's Helm , Darksteel Plate , Whispersilk Cloak , any of the sword of cards (just gonna put a link to all the sword of cards of your choice all but body and mind are sweet, Batterskull , Sword of Vengeance Hammer of Nazahn . certain creatures that are just good stuff that you should think about are Selfless Squire , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Karmic Guide , Reveillark , Linvala, Keeper of Silence also look at putting in Nahiri, the Lithomancer for a good planeswalker for equipment

cards i'm seeing that are just meh: Aegis Angel , Resolute Archangel , Banisher Priest , Fiend Hunter , Herald of the Host (doesn't really do anything to make your commander the one shot machine you want), Deathless Angel , Oracle's Vault (becomes to easily blown up right after you put all the work into making it work), Emancipation Angel , Divine Visitation (i get why you have it there for the 1/1 spirits you make, but it's not worth it), Requiem Angel .

other then that you just trim the fat of cards that don't help make brisela your one shot machine you're looking for. hope this helped!

I should have been a little more clear on that because it's pretty complicated. With the first Hulk you grab Karmic Guide and Viscera Seer . With the second Hulk trigger you get Reveillark and another sac outlet, doesn't really matter. Sacrifice Guide and then Reveillark to get Karmic Guide back followed by Reveillark. From this point, you have infinite dies triggers and scry effects, but if you need anything else:

Have Guide return Hulk instead of Reveillark. Sac the Hulk. Now you can get Fiend Hunter , which exiles Karmic Guide. Sacrifice Fiend Hunter, Guide comes back getting Reveillark. Sacrifice Guide, then Reveillark. Now get back Guide and Hunter. Guide targets Hulk and Hunter exiles the Guide. Sac Hulk to get whatever you want. Now you can sac Hunter to get Guide into Reveillark and do the same loop again to get anything off of a hulk. Hope this helped!

They're not spirits, but Flickerwisp , Restoration Angel , and Eldrazi Displacer are powerful flicker effects in modern. Also consider Fiend Hunter . Just some cards to keep in mind, even though they're not spirits.

If you're on the look out for more control-y includes cards from the Fiend Hunter family (o-rings on sticks,) are almost always big butts in the 1/3 range, Gaddock Teeg , is a nice include but you'd need to switch up your sig to include him: so far I've found that dealing twenty consistently with this type of deck is relatively easy and Triumph of the Hordes is a bit of overkill that's likely get you hated out so switching to something else for the Teeg include (which shuts off almost every other deck at the table, since planeswalkers are more often than not cmc 4+) might be worth considering its.

In my experience, the deck is weak to board wipes and removal, which is why my signature spell is Heroic Intervention : the beauty of Teferi's Protection but at a discount.

Champion of Lambholt is nice evasion since you strategy is to puke creatures on the board. Semi-asymetric boardwipes like Dusk//Dawn and Wave of Reckoning are also really good, but remember that if you play Teeg, they nonbo; Magus of the Disk is a 2/4 board wipe on theme that Teeg doesn't turn off though.

Hunter's Insight and Mentor of the Meek are really strong card draw for the deck, and because your curve is so low to the ground, you can probably most often afford to tax one for the cantrip.

Bar the Door and Tower Defense are the strongest pump spells this type of deck can run that I'm aware of. Village Bell-Ringer is also an on theme combat trick for the deck.

Assault Formation is a nice alternative to your oathbreaker in case she gets removed or worse Imprisoned in the Moon .

Stirring Wildwood is a land. Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is a billion green mana once it flips.

Indomitable Ancients is a four drop 2/10, and Skinshifter is a 1/1 for 1G with G: become an 0/8 uet.

Rhox Faithmender is the reason my record life total with the deck is 120 (three activations of Huatli for 11 doubled is 88 life plus starting life total and a net twelve life from somewhere).

Mirage Mirror is a second copy of anything in your or your opponents decks.

and lastly, Joven's Ferrets is a meme.

I would look at playing Zulaport Cutthroat and Falkenrath Noble in place of Angelic wall and gift of granite. Unless the people you play against play alot of enchantments I would take out demystify for Fiend Hunter
