Hidy Ho neighbor,
Really like what the deck has going on, the hatebear theme is well established, and the voltron is still prominent. Love the addition of Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and loving the pre release hebrew promo of Glory . But I see some things that may be better.
I third Tithe Taker , the ability is really nice to have one instance of.
Rant aside, really love what you've done, I think this deck is stronger than its counterpart in many ways, and I believe it's well on its way to being optimised.

hkhssweiss: Huh, I've always found Mask of Memory to be one of the strongest card advantage engines in the deck in testing. Gilded Lotus is a bit slow, I'll acknowledge, but remember that it's essentially 2 mana overall (it comes in untapped and immediately can be tapped to recover a certain amount of the mana investment). And Fight to the Death probably is one of the weaker links here, but I really love the idea of flashing in Archangel Avacyn Flip followed by Fight to the Death as a surprise (or using it to screw over the Voltron player when they're chump-blocked). And honestly, I'd rather run Grand Abolisher than Tithe Taker here, we'll see :)
RecklessN7: Bounty Agent was one of my most recent cuts actually! I wanted to run it as commander-hate and as a way to flip Avacyn, but it kinda got overshadowed by other things. And as I was cutting most of my self-sacrificing creatures, I ended up cutting Gift of Immortality (it no longer works with most of my options). I really like the idea of this version of the deck so far though!!
Darkshadow327: Your advice has been implemented!

DrkNinja: Honestly, I'm running Samurai of the Pale Curtain because I already had a foil, and it has some of my favorite typing in the game... Lol. Honestly I should probably be running both? At least she can carry a sword if I need to deal damage.
With regards to your other suggestions, Ethersworn Canonist DEFINITELY should be on my maybeboard. I feel like Loxodon Gatekeeper is kinda too much mana for his effect, have you found it to be very strong? Tithe Taker is a less-good Grand Abolisher (who honestly should be in here, but cuts are hard...).
Darkshadow327: I've never run Bygone Bishop before, but I feel like he'd be rather good at dodging effects like Spirit of the Labyrinth , and the VAST majority of my creature spells are CMC 3 or less. I'm curious about testing him at least!
hkhssweiss: Gift of Immortality was the MVP of my older Avacyn version, because it let me repeatedly sacrifice cards like Benevolent Bodyguard . However, I have less of those cards in this version, so it doubles as protection for my hatebears... I'm not sure if it's as good here.
Thanks everyone! If you like my Avacyn list, I'd ask that you upvote the "original" (Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*) rather than this temporary version ;)

Hey, TheAmazingSteve gave a good list, here's a few more:

Hey, I think Queen Marchesa is good with hatebears, opponent creature disruption. Drawing two cards a turn (draw step and end step) is very good for you when you have your opponents creatures locked down. White is one of the best colors in Commander for creature disruption. You could start with adding more cards that make it harder for your opponents to attack you since if your opponents can't attack you thus do combat damage to you, you don't lose the monarch. Ghostly Prison is great, but consider expanding on this effect?
Consider adding these cards:
- Static Orb
- Blind Obedience
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar
- Windborn Muse
- Loxodon Gatekeeper
- Containment Priest
Other hatebears/Stax to consider:
- Aven Mindcensor
- Grand Abolisher
- Sphere of Resistance
- Vryn Wingmare
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
- Ethersworn Canonist
- Eidolon of Rhetoric
- Kataki, War's Wage
- Aura of Silence
- Winter Orb
- Tangle Wire
If you like these ideas I can further help you make cuts for some of these cards.
Good luck with your deck.
