Your landbase is pretty tight right now, I'd recommend diversifying it. Mirrorpool, Lonely Sandbar, Maze of Ith, Ancient Tomb, Homeward Path, Mage-Ring Network, etc. are all very nice options.

@lightningtwister: Can't believe I forgot about Library of Leng. Added immediately!

@Trendy67: I haven't put this together in real life. My deck Tangled Up In Blue - Talrand Morph used to have the same theme, but I found it difficult to operate in multiplayer in my competitive playgroup so I switched it to a combo deck. 1v1 it was a beast though. Diluvian Primordial and Blighted Cataract are only in the deck once but because I put them in two different categories (it's how I like to organize my decks), it looks like they're two copies. Lonely Sandbar and Remote Isle are in for cycling ability and while it does not work with Baral's ability (cycling is an activated ability), late game when you don't need the land, it's nice to sift for something useful. Outside of combo decks, Fatestitcher doesn't have a whole lot of value. The interaction between Voidmage Prodigy and Docent of Perfection  Flip is nice, however with no tutors due to budget, finding/waiting for it would be aggravating. Faerie Trickery and Memory Lapse are good so I shoved those in. Remand and Rhystic Study are also good but I set a hardcap of nothing over $2.

@Clockwurk: Thanks!

@AlbinoNinja: At some point, I'll make an upgrade list for bigger budgets and these will definitely be on there.

Blasted Landscape eh uma bosta, poem Lonely Sandbar.

As cartas Sage Owl e Sage of Epityr nao valem a pena pois deixam tudo no topo, nao agilizam 100% o deck. E o Bonded Fetch acho que eh meio fraco para o custo de mana e defesa dele.

Impulse, por outro lado, foi perfeito para o teu deck.

Few suggestions: Swap Gavony Township for Seraph Sanctuary, In my experience you don't usually have leftover mana to use townships ability.

Lonely Sandbar and Tranquil Thicket for something like Thornwood Falls, Sejiri Refuge or Temple of Plenty. If a land is going to come into the battlefield tapped at least have it do something like you gain one life or scry a card. Or get a double land like Simic Growth Chamber and pair it with a basic land or Radiant Fountain.

Pearl Medallion is always a help since most angels are white, also helps your instants and everything else.

Here's an updated version of my deck you commented on before :) http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jenara-angel-edh-1/

2x Cathedral of War (free pump, no more than 2 in a multi colored deck)

2x Ghost Quarter (against Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and any other 2-3 colored decks)

1x Tranquil Thicket, 1x Lonely Sandbar, 4x Evolving Wilds these thin the deck and speed things up.


4x more Distortion Strike and Slip Through Space or Artful Dodge or both, take out Rancor

Apostle's Blessing over Blossoming Defense


If you can afford Dismember it works well against major threats that could potentially kill you like Tarmagoyf and fliers.

Wild Defiance will save you against burn.

Dredge is popular so you'll also need Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus depending on your meta but they also answer Snapcaster Mage any flashback, unearth, or delve decks.

Nature's Claim is also much needed, and/or Creeping Corrosion for afinity, tron, and boggles, plus anything else that runs arts or enchants in your meta, like the silence stick decks Silent Stick.

Non budget suggestions: Noble Hierarch, Spellskite, Inkmoth Nexus, Misty Rainforest, Breeding Pool

You could lose a couple lands but I feel like there are other tweeks that would be better. In my opinion you have a few high cost cards that don't run as well as some other options that require much less mana. Some land adjustment might be a better option for the mana situation. Myriad Landscape would be an easy addition to help for those times when you need multiple of one basic land type and could easily replace Lonely Sandbar just as a for instance.
