Lyra Dawnbringer Discussion

I would suggest Growth-Chamber Guardian , Lyra Dawnbringer and Adanto Vanguard as beaters and Adventurous Impulse and/or Silhana Wayfinder for consistency. I'd also swap Forest for dual lands (either one is fine), as you can produce as well as

I would suggest one of two options:
The first, as someone has suggested, is to make this deck into a commander or (as you've already done) a casual deck.
The second, which I'm going to talk about a bit more is trying to make this deck into a Standard deck. Currently in Standard, Angels are actually a good tribe, with cards like Lyra Dawnbringer , Resplendent Angel , Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , and the upcoming Seraph of the Scales . Even though the two most powerful Angels IMO in Standard are rotating out in Q4 of this year, it's still a long way to go before the time comes. The good thing about making this deck into Standard is that Standard is a more popular format, making you more likely to get into an event, and you have most of the important pieces already (Lyra, Shalai, Resplendent, Sunpetal Grove ). If you are interested in making this deck a Standard deck, I could possibly draft some decklists for you (taking into account things such as budget, etc) as I have loads of free time because it's the school holidays. If you are going this route, there are some of my Angel decks that you might want to check out for inspiration:

I'd take Journey to Nowhere over Pacifism , there are a lot of creatures who hurt you just by being on the battlefield without attacking or blocking anyone. Luminarch Ascension seems like a card that's good in multiplayer where you have a lot of opponents' end phases for it to trigger in and a propensity for stale mates, so if you're playing that way a lot it's a good card. In normal matchups, though, I don't see it doing much for you. Instead of Ghostly Prison , I'd bring in Archangel of Tithes , she's a bit more expensive for you and not as expensive for your opponent, but she's more versatile and comes with a 3/5 body which can really do wonders.
Darksteel Citadel doesn't seem to do a whole lot of good for you, and the occasional life-gain from Seraph Sanctuary is really also something you need to have a payoff for for it to be worth it. Maybe just get some extra plains, or you could get Eiganjo Castle or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers . You also seem to have rather more forests than I'd really recommend, but good dual lands are expensive, so I get you :) If you can afford them, I recommend Temple Garden , Horizon Canopy , Windswept Heath , Razorverge Thicket and Wooded Bastion .
Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems way too expensive, I'd get Birds of Paradise or more Noble Hierarch s if you can afford it, otherwise Avacyn's Pilgrim , Beastcaller Savant or Bloom Tender can do good work too. I'm also not sure what Kytheon's Irregulars ' role in your deck is, again let me recommend Archangel of Tithes , or alternatively Angel of Jubilation , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , or Indomitable Archangel or Gisela, the Broken Blade . Baneslayer Angel is a fine card, but unless you're facing demons and dragons regularly, Lyra Dawnbringer is probably better. Her ability to be a lord for other angels is really nice.
Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are super powerful bombs, but I'm not sure you have enough ramp to play them consistently. Of course, you know your local meta better than I do, so you be the judge of that yourself :) I'd recommend thinking about dropping them, though.
And last, a shameless plug. I've been playing with an angel deck of my own at my local FNM and been doing OK, it's been mono-white, white-green-red and is now just white-green. You can check the latest iteration here if you're looking for a somewhat different take on this whole business: Noble Angels

Hey I think you have a lot of 4 drops. I think Hunted Witness , Mortify , Resplendent Angel , Lyra Dawnbringer , Militia Bugler , Fungal Infection all might be worth consideration to help this deck curve a bit. Cheers :)

@ Old_Man: Hmm, I was hoping that Seal Away and Kinjalli's Sunwing would hold down the fort for aggro matchups, protected by Siren Stormtamer of course. But in the sideboard I also have counters to bring in as well as Lyra Dawnbringer . Do you have any suggestions for the aggro matchup?

I think that Angel of Grace can be a great future-card for this deck because it can be useful against aggro decks to gain time. Also can be a good "defender" with the flash ability, and if you have Lyra Dawnbringer .... I do not think I need to say it.

rpbxiii Thanks for the comment and the upvote!
I like Knight of Malice since it plays both roles in this deck. I would consider it depending on how removal shapes up. I do however want to specify that having two agressive two drops in a midrange shell is really important for having some sort of pressure versus control. Midrange typically beats up on aggro since it has more removal, bigger butts and this deck especially with mainboard Lyra Dawnbringer. Tithe Taker is an okay card versus aggressive strategies since it blocks fairly reasonable and leaves behind a body. Versus control it's supposed to shine, but I haven't played with it yet, and something else might be better in the two drop slot.
Mortify is really cool and a awesome reprint. However the deck does need some form of interaction on turn two against aggressive strategies, and it's really good versus most of the field we just had in standard. You could definitely change the removal choices in the future, but the exile effect is so good. Also the deck also runs Bedevil against planeswalkers and has a bit more utility. There is also curve considerations. If some enchantment based deck pops up I would like to run some if only in the sideboard
Kaya's Wrath mainboard is just a concession to week 1 standard where the meta is a lot more aggressive. Also we don't mind wrath the board since we got Afterlife triggers, Midnight Reaper or Adanto Vanguard
However I do believe that these two are flex spots. If you want to you could run more removal or creatures instead. I would not recommend going above 10 removal/wrath spells since it slows you way down versus control game 1.
Hope it clarified you thoughts on the deck choices. Spoilers are still coming so the deck might be due for a makeover depending on new cards!
Thanks again :)

Here is a few more fatties you could consider for this deck Scourge of the Throne, Balefire Dragon, Karmic Guide, Baneslayer Angel, Lyra Dawnbringer, Shadowborn Demon, Demonlord Belzenlok, and Overseer of the Damned.
