Well, welcome to the community. I hope you like it as much as i do. Let me start by asking some questions. Are you on a budget? Are you just using cards you have? Cause not counting your lands, I would keep about 25% of this deck and mostly start over.

Anointed Procession and Coat of Arms would both be awesome with this commander and theme, but they run about $8-10 each. Command Tower should be in every EDH deck (the price isn't too bad).

Some cheaper options: Benalish Marshal is a good knight lord. Radiant Destiny could act as another knight lord and give all your knights vigilance with the city's blessing. Spear of Heliod is another nice and cheap one that also gives you a to destroy things. Swiftfoot Boots would be amazing on your Knight Exemplar.

So these are just some ideas. I have more if you can give me a little bit more to work with. Also look at some board wipes. Black and white have plenty of those and even some where it doesn't target you.

Oh right you are, Righteous Confluence ain't legal. Whoops.

I'm not saying to replace Gideon with History. I'm saying that if you like Gideon (and you rightfully do), then there's no reason that you shouldn't like History as well. Curving History into ANY of your other 3 or 4 drops is a crazy play-line because then they can swing in with +2/+1 on the following turn.

This deck really wants to win (or close to it) by turn 5. It's not quite aggro enough to win on turn 4, so turn 5 is the prime target. Given that timeline, History of Benalia is the perfect turn 3 play because it makes your turn 5 insanely explosive.

This playline threatens upwards of 30 unblockable power on turn 5. History and Gideon alone threaten 17, while History and Silverblade threaten 20. You can't get anywhere near those numbers without History of Benalia. That card is an absolute house.

@ zombob57: Yep, my math was way off. Not sure what happened there. I squared them each instead of doubled them? lol

Really like The Immortal Sun. It just...does everything. Card draw, board pump, ramp. Negative synergy with Ugin and Karn, but still amazing.

Teferi's Protection is an obvious Commander all-star. Unfortunately I cannot reuse it with the Mistveil Plains/Sunforger combo since it is exiled on resolution. I'll probably stick with Boros Charm for anti-board wipe tech.

Bastion Protector would be so amazing if it were a Knight...oh well. Protection for Commanders is pretty amazing anyway. I have half the package with Knight Exemplar, I guess.

Zirilan of the Claw is great tech, leads to explosive board states and offers great punching power for specialized situations. Exiling the Dragon makes me a bit sad though. I also have the Plains/Forger combo with Sarkhan's Triumph in here for tutoring, but putting something right into play with haste is obviously better (and more aggro) than that, exile clause notwithstanding.

The Immortal Sun seems the most appealing out of your suggestions. What would you suggest to drop for it?

EspioNova Well this is now turning into a knight deck more than an angel deck! So it's up to you in what direction do you want to take it, if a full-blown knight tribal, or an angel deck supported by knights.

If that last thing is what you want, the deck looks good now creature-wise. But some suggestions you might like:

So I just threw a lot of cards in there, but it's up to your preferences and budget what changes to make. Good luck with de deck, it already improved a lot!

I misread Knight Exemplar, it's not very good here. Archetype of Courage might be cool.

I don't see how Fall of the Thran does anything for you here. I wouldn't play Banishing Stroke, it's just gonna suck when you get it in your starting hand or when you draw it too early in the game.

Lyra Dawnbringer of course, very expensive though :p Shalai, Voice of Plenty is also a very powerful angel.

Pride Guardian and Seal Away defend well against aggro decks. Mother of Runes is a great defensive card for your sideboard.

If you want to be a bit more aggressive, replace the Inspiring Clerics and a few Knight of Meadowgrain for some Glory-Bound Initiates and maybe some Knight Exemplars and Consul's Lieutenants.

I think Cathedral Sanctifier and Pride Guardian are usually better than Ghost-Lit Redeemer.

You could run a Luxa River Shrine for some extra lifegain.

Good luck with the deck, looks awesome!

I made some modifications ... Added some Godsend (quite a badass card) and Day of Judgment with the indestructible effect from Knight Exemplar it seemed like a good idea

Love the pun :P

I don't think you should run any green in this deck. Knight of the Reliquary just isn't very good, especially since you don't benefit at all from having lands in your graveyard (except for a pretty irrelevant filter effect.) The equipments aren't great, I think you're better off playing AoE buffs like Serra's Blessing and Coat of Arms. Puresteel Paladin isn't useful enough when you're running only 5 equipments so I'd remove that. If you go mono-white with a lot of plains you can easily summon Benalish Marshal in turn 3. Knight Exemplar in your maybeboard looks amazing, I'd mainboard that 4 times (if you have two of them, they're all indestructable.)
