mrfab13 I actually had that in there as a placeholder until I got the wurm engines. The problem with Battlesphere is once Heartless Summoning is out, Battlesphere becomes a wasted card.

Forget Infernal Plunge. You need Heartless Summoning. A Pyretic Ritual turn 3 would let you cast a 5 cmc dragon. Turn 1 could be Thoughtseize Inquisition of Kozilek. Run 3 each of Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual, 4 Heartless Summoning. 3 Terminate Inquisition of Kozilek Thoughtseize. 4 Lightning Bolt and add dragons to taste. If you find it moving to slowly, you can use that mana gen for a sweeper effect like Earthquake to hit both players. Run Blighting Lava Spike Bump in the Night for game 2 and send it all to the face. Skeletal Scrying is good if you dump and go again with Pyretic Ritual.

Hey Kaleo42,

This deck is incredibly fun to pilot, and can hold it's own in tough situations. Though it is more casual the competitive due to it's battlecruiser gameplay, it almost always starts slow, plus that high mana curve makes it obsolete against super competitive decks. Lets go on to those suggestions

Heartless Summoning - I've always been on the fence about this card, it makes 19 out of the 21 angels cheaper to cast, but that -1/-1 is annoying, it makes Atraxa a far less deadly target, increasing the minimum turn timer of 6 turns to 7, and it also makes her far easier to kill. I would need something to counteract it

Quicksilver Amulet - This deck has many ways of "cheating" things in already, most of which are one time uses, but are either cheaper, or return more than 1 creature. Plus removing Door of Destinies seems to be counterintuitive if I plan to add Heartless Summonings, as it counters the effect.

Akroma's Memorial - Always wanted to add this card, but its Mana cost seems too be incredibly high.

I don't want fell like removing Duelist's Heritage is a good idea, as it's been pulling it weight so far.

Thanks for the suggests, ill make sure to test them.

Loving the commitment. Tribal decks can be so much fun. Honestly there is a pretty casual stigma about edh Angels in my area but this is something I would find fun.

My thoughts looking at it:Heartless Summoning over Duelist's Heritage Double strike is nice and all but playing the angels down a turn or two early will more than make up for that damage.

Akroma's Memorial over the least used removal. Memorial can compensate nicely for cutting Duelist's Heritage but adds haste and protections. I feel like the removal list is higher than necessary.

Quicksilver Amulet over Door of Destinies Door is cute but slow on the pay back, amulet can let you pump out angels at an much faster rate and ignore color requirements. Elvish Piper works for similar reasons but is more fragile depending on your meta.

I feel like if you're playing Lodestone Golems, you should just up your land count (even though you have Heartless Summoning). I'd probably just cut 2 Treasure Mages for a Buried Ruin and a Watery Grave and take it from there. You only have 4 targets for Treasure Mage anyway, so you might even want to just cut them all out, go to 24 lands, and play a singleton Fabricate.

Hostage Taker works very well in my tests ... She interact with Heartless Summoning reducion her cast and the exiled creature cast. It helped me alot. Casting it in the right our, it is good enough ta make me keep this

there's some antisynergy with snapcaster (like you actually need the creature part of it), but Heartless Summoning looks like it could do some work.
