Horizon Canopy Discussion
27 minutes ago
Probably not quite the entire deck in 500 but close to it. The main expensive cards are Verdant Catacombs (you can play other fetchlands itll just be worse) Horizon Canopy (I dont know what you would play to replace this but you can definitely replace it) and Noble Hierarch (I personally do not think you can play the deck without noble)

I too have an Ange tribal deck (Whom God Loves), so one thing I'd suggest for COMPLETE overkill is Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. You've got the red sources in Birbs and Sages, so meeting her single red devotion shouldn't be an issue. I'd also suggest Linvala, Keeper of Silence and she can just come down and hose down a lot of things.
Another thing: Baneslayer Angel should be in this deck, she's too good NOT to run and becomes priority number one the instant you announce you're casting her.
And my final suggestion: Sigarda, Host of Herons (the old one!) is a BEATING. She's hard to answer and has a big body, what's not to love?
Lastly, a couple land suggestions that are in no universe budget (but you can run if you find extra cash to be weighting down your pocket). They are Horizon Canopy and Cavern of Souls. Cavern hoses control and taps for anything your Angels need while Canopy provides much needed card advantage to help you refuel in those grinds matches. Just a few suggestions from a fellow Angels player!

Thank you TheAlexGnan.
I would love to put Horizon Canopy in but alas it's not in the budget as of yet. One can wish.
I definitely can do the mana base you provided. I have the cards coming in this week.
I like basilik collar and believe I have at one and 2 gorgan's head. I can probably swap those for a Unflinching Courage.
Thanks for the suggestions very much appreciated!

Since you yourself have talked about Windswept Heath, and fortunately its not the most expensive fetchland, I'll go ahead and propose a mana base with it:
In your Colors, Horizon Canopy is an Option, albeit a very expensive one.
Generally speaking, i think 5drop planeswalkers are too greedy, even with acceleration. The only reason you would Need Cryptolith Rite is to cast them, and rite is just a bad Card in many situations.

cut Loxodon Smiter and Saffi Eriksdotter add Spirit of the Labyrinth. also, don't forget to cut Horizon Canopy and Cavern of Souls due to budget, though if you've the money to blow, cavern is worth it.

On the whole (and especially as a budget build) the deck looks really good. As for individual card choices:
Selesnya sanctuary is not great, as it slows down your turn two play. Turn two is a vet important turn as a decent chunk of your ramp (as well as your commander) are turn two plays. Tectonic Edge is a good card as it give you a bit of land and isn't too expensive to buy. I would recommend switching them.
Rampant growth is good, however if you can a Nature's Lore, do that.
Kami of false hope is a bit overkill given you have Spore Frog who is the better option as well as a bunch of ways to tutor for him.
Reclaim is ok, but Noxious Revival is so much better. It's a bit expensive for an uncommon but it's basically free and doubles as temporary graveyard hate.
I'm not a fan of persist combos in the deck. They don't work with Saffi or any other recursion combo and without access to Murderous Redcap they don't generate a win condition without Blasting Station or Altar of Dementia anyway. Plus you're hinging everything on Cathars' Crusade with redundancy on it. But adding redundancy means having potentially "dead" card in your deck.
While having additional combo in your deck is nice, the fact that they have no iteraction with your primary combo is not good and in my opinion at least, a waste of card slots. This also means that cards like Fanatical Devotion are completely useless (whooo, you can infintiely regenrate creatures, yay...).
What I did with my deck was to cut a lot of the non-core combo pieces (both creature and otherwise) and just focus on the core combo package as there is an awesome amount of interaction between the recursion pieces. Then I used all the additional card slots I had freed up to add creature tutor and raw card advantage. This in turn helps the deck find its combo pieces better.
That's why I run cards like Eidolon of Blossoms (which is a lot better than a lot of people think), Nissa, Sage Animist Flip, Stoneforge Mystic etc, as well as lands like Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Horizon Canopy, Inventors' Fair (which you should seriously get a copy of) etc. But I appreciate that a lot of those cards are quite expensive to buy.
On that same note, I don't like Mirror Entity. It's quite complicated to get a combo with it working and while it's cute as a beatstick, you're not running Avenger of Zendikar alongside it so it loses a lot of its potency.
Anyway, I hope this has given you some iedas and insights, but feel fre to hit me up if you have more questions.
