Luminous Broodmoth Discussion
1 week ago
Sweet deck! Can I ask why the limited amount of recursion? All I really saw was Athreos, God of Passage and Luminous Broodmoth. I could be blind though XD. Also did you think about adding Reassembling Skeleton? It would go infinite with Teysa, Pitiless Plunderer, and a free sac outlet

Grand Abolisher can help a lot against control decks and suits the devotion plan as well. If you face control often, you can also include other anti control cards. Fell free to experiment with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Favor of the Mighty, 4x Cavern of Souls, Giver of Runes, Greater Auramancy, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Pristine Angel, Voice of All, Pentarch Ward, Spectra Ward. Control has always the upper hand over you, this helps to bind their hands.
Luminous Broodmoth it's not an Angel and you control not enough non flyers that are worth to keep alive. You can run a creature only strategy. I suggest you look at death and taxes decks and draw inspiration from there.
Angels do not synergize with anything. You play Angels only because you like Angels not for competitive reasons. There is an option for a lifegain Angels deck (I'm working on it right now) but it uses very different kind of Angels Angel of Vitality, Resplendent Angel, Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer and a lot of 1 life passive trigger cards.
If you add another color or colorless, you destroy the devotion plan. Therefore you need another strategy to get Angels out. See "Other strategies" in description

Terror of the Peaks would be a good include. It would fit nicely with Winota herself as well as aiding any of your Kiki/Splinter combos.
Luminous Broodmoth could also add a lot here with giving you a recursion source as well as flying for your creatures.

To be fair though, has no synergy with the knights theme. Also being the only non Knight might not be worth the inclusion of Ashes of the Fallen or Conspiracy. Although if you found enough non knight cards that really do deserve a spot in the deck it may be a nice package. Stoneforge Mystic Comes to mind.
Just a fun idea even thought it might not be worth the include.
Edit: Just read the last part of your descryption. QQ

Unfortunately no, if you have Akroma's Memorial in play then all of your creatures have flying as a static ability. This means that if they die, they won't meet the criterion of not having flying that Luminous Broodmoth requires and so the ability to return them from the graveyard won't trigger.

If I control normal Creatures without effects and I have a Luminous Broodmoth and have a Akroma's Memorial too on my Battlefield, does Luminous Broodmoth will Trigger and bring the Creature still back with a Flying Counter?

Sorry I never responded to the other comment I read it then completely forgot- that's my memory for you :/.
But wow! This looks great!!! I bet anything it performs so much better now, and I have to say it looks like a super fun deck to play! Great job! I have a few last comments but nothing too much, because this really does look great!
I'm not too sure why you have Luminous Broodmoth since you don't run too many creatures anyway and it's only for creatures you control? So am I missing something or what.
Literally other than that my only comments are suggestions :). Again, Teferi's Protection is amazing for any deck that has white, so if you can find a cut for that I definitely recommend it. Same goes for Call of the Death-Dweller since it'll do the same thing as the other graveyard return cards except it can give Kelsien the deathtouch counter. Could be worth it? Umbral Mantle might be nice too allowing you to untap kelsien for three mana a bunch of times and reactivate him, while buffing him too. Plus it's an artifact which fits with your theme. If you like the Divine Reckoning sort of effects Cataclysm might be nice too. And finallyyyy Rise of the Dark Realms. Hella expensive in mana but this could be a complete game turn around and could be super helpful with all your opponents stuff in their graveyard. Could be fun! Anyways great upgrades, I hope I've helped, and may this deck bring you many wins!

Fiery Emancipation is amazing with Saskia, as you can triple damage, then triple it again with Saskia's damage trigger.
Flayer of the Hatebound might be a good fit here with your reanimation theme.
Luminous Broodmoth could be used to give flying if you find a way to sacrifice your stuff, which is something you should consider since many of your creatures only last a turn anyways. Combo it with Downdraft and/or Gravity Well for extra fun.
