Gonna do what I usually do and brainstorm a bunch of cards in the vain hope that some of them will be of use:

Maybe Martyr's Bond instead of e.g. Grave Pact? Dunno if you produce enough enchantments and/or artifact permanents to make it worth it but it could finish off everthing your enemies own that were exempt from e.g. Cataclysm.

Maybe Cauldron of Souls as a source of backup recursion which can save more than just your commander? (And she'll shed that -1/-1 counter pretty fast.)

Tombstone Stairwell is a pet card of mine and I'd love for it to make a comeback. Maybe also consider other, similar cards like Curse of Disturbance, Benevolent Offering or Alliance of Arms?

In the same vein, maybe a non-Creature card that benefits from enemy creatures like Bloodchief Ascension, Authority of the Consuls, Ashes of the Abhorrent, (Carnival of Souls) or (Moonlit Wake)? (I assume you've already considered e.g. Blood Artist.)

This is better advice than I was expecting. So. Sincerely, thanks for it. =)

Building and playing decks with a lot of single copies is something I'm used to and familiar with, many of my decks have various ways to play it due to my not having several copies of almost all the cards in a deck. Its hard to explain, but there is usually a varied way to play the deck based on how it comes up. This makes the deck a little less predictable. Though I'm still working on that trait for this one.I've never really been a fan of decks with many 4 offs, to me those decks seemed geared toward a single strategy or combo, there's less variety and challenge to playing a deck like that for me. A few of My decks usually have multiple strategies, and the less predictable outcome of each game challenges me to play on the fly.

I would like to keep as many Angel types as possible. Angelic Page, is in there for early-game defense mostly. Decree of Justice, I don't even use the ability to create soldier tokens. I've even debated using a few copies of Illusory Angel, just to have some Angel type creatures early game.

I do plan to cut Angel's Tomb and Angelic Armaments for two more copies of Quicksilver Amulet. Ways to reduce the CMC, like Herald of War or a couple copies of Helm of Awakening. I haven't decided yet, depending on how it plays with the amulets. I'm also looking to replace Moonlit Wake with Proper Burial.

The Kaldra artifacts are actually in there for Guardian of the Gateless, Sigarda's Aid allowing me to spend the eight mana I'd need to play and equip one, to have both equipped. The Flash ability isn't one I really take advantage of too often, but having it open comes in handy.

I will, however, be adding Archangel of Tithes and Emeria, The Sky Ruin. I wasn't even aware a land card had that ability. Might even add Vault of the Archangel, to help with life gain.

I honestly do appreciate the feedback, I just wish there were more low-casting cost Angels to use.

@griffstick: I feel like Angelic Renewal has too much value here, especially if I can have it out with Felidar Sovereign. I did some rearranging (In: Haazda Shield Mate, Marshal's Anthem, Fountain Watch, manlands for lifegain triggers and the three you mentioned...Out: Mimic Vat, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Vassal's Duty, Moonlit Wake and Dawn to Dusk). Let me know what you think.

I ran it in my old Sigarda, infinite creatures/life/mana/+1+1 counters combo deck.

Midnight Guard+Presence of Gond+Ivy Lane Denizen+Soul Warden+Moonlit Wake+Ashnod's Altar.

Righteous Cause >>> Deathgreeter

Polluted Bonds >>> Moonlit Wake

Noble Purpose >>> Falkenrath Noble

All these changes is an attempt to lower the curve. In a multiplayer format a lot of creatures will die so there will be plenty of triggers. Opted for these guys instead of the one upkeep trigger from Ajani's Mantra or Nyx-Fleece Ram.

Hello ya'll! Trying to finalize my Uncle K deck. It uses extort mechanics and many life gain triggers to bloat him up to epic proportions fairly quickly. Recently I playtested the deck and found I needed both more protection and evasion. So I changed some things around adding auras/equipments. I'm currently trying to make the curve as low as possible so I can advantage of the extort mechanics. For that reason a few of the 5 cmc enchantments are on the chopping block. Just unsure about whether to add more upkeep life gain triggers like Ajani's Mantra or more Moonlit Wake type effects.
