Isochron Scepter Discussion

Why run General Tazri as your Commander? You've only got a small handful of cards that aren't mono white. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight or Aurelia, the Warleader still allow you to splash the red you have in here and then you'd only need to cut two cards.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty which you could easily replace with Swords to Plowshares. That would give you spot removal, in addition to being another good target for your Isochron Scepter, on that note, you might want to consider replacing Silence with Orim's Chant. Slayers' Stronghold or Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion are both good swaps for Vault of the Archangel

Other swaps to consider Always Watching in place of Serra's Blessing and check out True Conviction in place of Noble Purpose

Just a few thoughts from a fellow Boros Angel player

This deck seems hella lit!!! I think you can look into cards like Reverberate, Imp's Mischief, Fury Charm, and Darkness (black fog ayyyy) along with Isochron Scepter for some fun shenanigans too :)

Isochron Scepter needs instants, and since Demonic Tutor is a sorcery that won't work, but with a Brainstorm you can draw you deck out, and make infinite mana and have infinite casts, so you then drop Aetherflux Reservoir, cast your deck, and win!

This is a very cool storm build, honestly I think it is really competitive!

A few minor suggestions on additions, like Paradox Engine (goes infinite with Isochron Scepter and can make a lot of mana as you are casting spells) and Wanderwine Prophets (weird infinite combo with Inalla, Archmage Ritualist that makes infinite turns, you can look it up).

Razia's Purification has a high mana cost, but because of the possible land destruction it can really lock the board down for a few turns when the three permanents your opponents have can't stop yours. I previously played a Narset, Enlightened Master deck and used Armageddon and Bust as well to destroyed all lands.

I also used Strionic Resonator which could give you a third combat phase with Aurelia, however all your non-vigilance creatures would be tapped during the third combat phase. It's an interesting artifact but I'm not sure it would synergize well enough to include in your deck. Some exert and vigilance based decks exist that you could check out for combat phase ideas.

I also had a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest commander deck. I play Boros in Modern with the deck Sunshine Burn so that's my background on playing red/white.

Another ridiculous card that you could use is Final Fortune. (also see Last Chance & Warrior's Oath) There are ways to cheat death like playing Angel's Grace or Sundial of the Infinite. Isochron Scepter is a fun card to use with Final Fortune, Angel's Grace, Deflecting Palm, Enlightened Tutor, Balance, Swords to Plowshares, and other sweet instants. These would go well with your Sunforger. Other than Helm of the Host and extra combat phase creatures, do you have ways to gain more or infinite combat phases?

Isochron Scepter goes infinite with Dramatic Reversal and can be tutored with Muddle the Mixture though perhaps you don't want infinite combos

Removed Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter for more utility. I found myself going for cards like metal worker, Staff of Domination and more specifically Paradox Engine way more often than trying for the Dramatic Scepter combo.
