Whenever Maelstrom Archangel deals combat damage to a player, you may cast a nonland card from your hand without paying its mana cost.

Neato +1 from me
I really like the Honden cycle, Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Reki, the History of Kamigawa , Crackling Perimeter , and a lot of the new stuff like Guild Summit , Wilderness Reclamation and Plaza of Harmony
Nim Deathmantle seems out of place. It's because you're running a lot of boardwipes (so is everyone else); and hopefully you're going to have a lot of mana ?
No Tempt with Discovery ? It gets any land. I guess it's a little over costed unless you're in a big group game. I try to never give in to someone else's tempt ;)
What do you think about Bring to Light , Maelstrom Nexus , Maelstrom Archangel , Demonic Tutor , etc? They're not legendary but are good. Maybe Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , Thrasios, Triton Hero and Azusa, Lost but Seeking to really drop some CA$H XD
Keep up the good work!

PartyJ, if you are looking for more sac outlets, the two lands I just picked up survive the Child Board wipes, and can be used over and over. High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well. I also have a few clones thrown in here to help counter some of the opponents more pesky creatures or even planewalkers, nothing is better than someone casting an emrakul or some shit and you just plop out your own too. lol. it seems like you have a lot of ramp cards that search for specific lands but the only fetch-able lands you have are the shock lands. There are a couple other runs of lands that can be fetched tho, some cycling lands, aside from the original dual lands which I don't even have all a copy of all 10 of those anymore. Devotion is def a thing, and I have found that Child himself is good, but throw a Chromanticore on him and he's even better, plus thats 4 devotion to any of the 2 color god's. I see a lot of child decks on edhrec that have Maelstrom Archangel. I personally like being able to manipulate the top of my library with Sensei's Divining Top, Courser of Kruphix and the temples. plus if you don't like what you see you crack a fetch land or a tutor and get fresh cards on top to check out again. Mirri's Guile is really good in enchantress

This deck wants to push as much damage as quickly as possible, and the angel is better than the dragon in this case. Aurelia puts about the same amount of pressure on the manabase to cast, and is still a card to fetch for the Maelstrom Archangel + Conflux combo, while being a more aggressive and powerful card.

if you like cascade, cards that manage the top cards of your deck such as Sensei's Divining Top are a must. If you use the cascade creatures, the lower cost cascade creatures will fetch your different tutor cards while the higher cost ones will hopefully cast your large creatures for free if you have sufficent topdeck manipulation.
Sylvan Library topdeck manipulation at it's finest, and draw if you're willing to pay for it.
Birthing Pod may allow you to abuse etb effects and toolbox your elementals.
Conspiracy is another card you can use to force the elemental tribe on non-elementals to abuse your effects.
Chromatic Lantern is a mana rock that fixes you in all of your colours at once.
I don't remember any off the top of my head, but enchantment recusion cards for your Maelstrom Nexus that thing is a huge target and should be a cornerstone for your deck in my opinion. if it goes off it nearly doubles the value of any card you play. but you need the tutors to get it in your hand.
Maelstrom Archangel decent beatstick, brings out cards cheaply.

your lowest cost green creature for Green Sun's Zenith is your Maelstrom Archangel. certainly a good target, but unfortunately it'll likely be the "only" target. also curious why you didn't include Bringer of the Black Dawn or Fist of Suns.

My favorite angel is probably Avacyn, on account that Sorin is my favorite planeswalker so... But other than that I love Maelstrom Archangel or Akroma, Angel of Fury. I love Akroma's artwork but Maelstrom is a boss.
