multimedia on The Boros Legion has arrested my wallet

Hey, it's great you're doing this for your daughter, but this is deck is not aggro, not close. It's midrange and honestly it's better that its midrange since aggro is less good in multiplayer Commander and aggro is not what you want with Angels.

Angels are about doing combat damage with flying to your opponents which Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is much better at than Anya, Merciless Angel and you have Gisela. As General Gisela doubles the flying combat damage that Angels do including herself. All Angels you control benefit from Gisela. Gisela can also help with the crack back since damage dealt to you is reduced. Anya is better as part of the 99 than as General.

For starters to upgrade your deck I would get away from aggro and focus more on how you can strengthen the midrange strategy with Angels. Examples of upgrades to improve midrange are cutting Embereth Shieldbreaker for Knight of the White Orchid, cutting Fumiko the Lowblood for Solemn Simulacrum, cutting Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas for Anger.

Cards you could cut:

  • Dwarven Mine
  • Idyllic Grange
  • Phyrexian Soulgorger
  • Embereth Shieldbreaker
  • Fumiko the Lowblood
  • Meteor Blast
  • Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
  • Jareth, Leonine Titan
  • Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
  • Fiendslayer Paladin
  • Tajic, Legion's Edge
  • Desolation Giant
  • Truefire Captain
  • Hunted Dragon
  • Pacifism
  • Razia's Purification
  • Crystal Slipper

Some other cards you could add:

Good luck with your deck.

After taking a better look and reading your comments, I would pull out 1x Sorin, Solemn Visitor 2x Vraska, Golgari Queen

As you aren't getting full value. Sorin has a better version already in the main and Vraska needs to destroy permanents which you don't want in this deck. I would consider either Dromoka's Command for flexibility or maybe some different plainswalkers for really grindy matchups against control post sideboard. Tireless Tracker is a great option to play side or indeed main. And that sort of card can work with Vraska if you want her in, as the Tracker makes the permanents required for Vraska to tick up.

The other option I could see for mana reasons is to include a set of something similar to Adventurous Impulse . Digs for land if required or for creatures.

Final option would be Lyra Dawnbringer or similar - I've found sometimes having nothing in the air means you are playing behind the entire game and can't recover. Lifegain here is handy again.

No. I recommand Lyra Dawnbringer mainly. But you can play Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite as a alternative Commander if your Opponents play heavy Creature/Token Decks.

I think Lyra Dawnbringer is the best choice because, you can play on Lifelink and use Cards like Aetherflux Reservoir !.

First time I've seen a duel commander Licia Deck. Your list seems pretty solid and I'm sure you spend a looooooooot of time to find some of the gold nuggets cards that are only good (but really good !) in this deck :)

My only word is that in this format take a good care that your turn 4+ have an impact on the game the turn they arrived or are really strong enough to catch back a huge delay on turn 5. For example, Lyra Dawnbringer does nothing when it arrives... Indeed if she attacks it is strong both to cast your commander and to gain life. Same is true for Gisela, the Broken Blade , Sangromancer or Baneslayer Angel . The upside of Wurmcoil Engine is that even if he got killed the turn it arrives, it keeps producing value ; and that's why it is a meta card.

Can you tell us about how does the deck perform in your meta ?

See you

Two cards that may - or may not - be helpful: Lyra Dawnbringer and Congregate . The deck is yours and you can ignore or accept these, but they are suggestions. Enjoy your day! Also, you have no idea how happy I am to see this. I love angels and think they need more love from the Magic Community!

Off the top of my head? Cards that come to mind... Liliana, the Last Hope , Damping Sphere , Lyra Dawnbringer . Those can all help swing bad match-ups. Collective Brutality is an especially good option in decks using Lingering Souls.
