Knight of the White Orchid Discussion

I'm going to second making 2 mana ramp a priority. Sol Ring is a nice start, but you really should add 4-6 more sources of ramp. Even if you add a creature like Knight of the White Orchid who you can sac later. 2 damage isn't a lot but its something, especially if it comes with a land drop. Also have to echo Solemn Simulacrum.
Have you considered Magma Phoenix? That makes a decent Brion target since it can be brought back fairly easily from the graveyard and helps clear the board.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Fleetfoot Panther, Qasali Ambusher, Regal Caracal, Whitemane Lion can replace some of the underperforming cats. The flash/bounce cats can help save some of your more important feline personalities from removal or even let you reuse their ETB effecs.
Really not a fan of Land Tax effects like Oreskos Explorer because you're just not ramping. Kodama's Reach or Blighted Woodland would be better to get more of your basics out of your deck and help turn on the Emeria. Or if you want to keep all the lands to hand effects, it'd be worth looking at tossing in a Terrain Generator.
If you want to get more cat tokens, you will definitely want Parallel Lives/Anointed Procession to double up, also greatly amusing with Bloodforged Battle-Axe. Also, at that point Konda's Banner is a ridiculous boon for all your cats.
Not a fan of Quietus Spike since with all your cats and equipment, life doesn't matter all that much, and if someone is just sitting too high on life, your commander is no slouch in combat himself. Voltron him up and get in for Commander Damage. Lightning Greaves on the other hand is something that I've never liked in equipment focused decks simply because there will be times you have to play around it awkwardly and lose out because of the shroud.
Finding cards to cut is ridiculously hard. Creeping Renaissance is awesome, but this could also be Open the Vaults/Faith's Reward depending on how flexible you want to be. Renaissance is good for the reusability, but having to cast everything over again can be quite the pain.
All in all, the list is really tight, and save a few cats that might be a bit meh in play, it's a great place to start. Actual games will let you know just which cards are underperforming and need to be reevaluated.

I playtested alot with 4x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and it showed that it was not worth to go with 4 because the devotion mechanic is more of an endgame (Turn 7+) mechanic in this deck. By then, i could fetch it anyway twice. I still try to make devotion a more early game strategy but i would have to sacrifice my control plan to it. I would add Borderposts and Knight of the White Orchid for turn 4 scary Angels. The problem with this strategy was its inconsistency and no control options against aggro.
There was a time where i 50% of all decks i faced were Death Shadow Decks. It showed that using Condemn on a Goyf was a one-sided Boardwipe because the Death Shadow died with it. Yes Path to Exile is a much better spell, but Condemn can be a budget option as well.

With Emeria the Sky Ruin you want to be abusing ETB effects on creatures such as Sun Titan.
A line of play could be something like-
Emeria return Sun Titan
Sun Titan trigger returns Flickerwisp
Flickerwisp targets Sun Titan
Sun Titan gets back Wall Of Omens, Draw a Card
So for free you got 9 power in play and drew a card, pretty good.

Your deck looks interesting, but I see some room for improvement :) Your land count is a little high. I think you could increase the deck's speed by dropping the land count back down to 36 and instead add some more ramp options. This would include cards like Knight of the White Orchid, Oreskos Explorer, Solemn Simulacrum and in case you have the monies, Weathered Wayfarer or Land Tax.
I can't help but notice that some of the more powerful Angels that are available are missing from your deck (you already mentioned Avacyn). If you lack the money to buy these but still want this deck to work as a tribal, perhaps you should look into cards like Honor of the Pure, Door of Destinies and Spear of Heliod.
I hope this helps and I hope you can find the time to comment on one of my decks as well. Happy gaming!

Saharez Hello, thanks for the great tips. Unfortunately im a bit of a newbie so i have no idea what meta i am playing in and my budget really isnt big enough for Aether vials, Wastelands or Rishadan ports.
Although Swords to Plowshares is a great tip i have actually gotten myself a set of those now :P.
The Vial of Poison x2 i got for a bit of attack discouragement since i can sack it instant speed to stop someting big and had used path to exile on myself for mana since white doesnt really have deathtouch. but if you have time, what do you think about switching Vial of Poison x2+Fiend hunters x2 for Swords to Plowshar x4, and fortify x2+Glorious Charge x2 for Knight och the White Orchid x4? it'll give me more a bit more battlefield control but also a bit more mana ramp with Knight of the White Orchid and Path to Exile incase i fall behind in mana.

Sun Titan Holy crap he is a must in this deck.
I'm just spit-balling here:
Phyrexian Ingester I'm not too sure about the interaction of repeated flashes, but it could work.
HAHAHA I am definitely going to go and make a FLICKER DECK IM SO EXCITED. Thanks for the idea, man. I spent so much time looking these cars up I just can't not make my own deck! +10000
