That new Growth Spiral looks interesting.

Greetings itachi45, High Counsel of Jin-Gitaxias!
In relation to land (2x Breeding Pool / fetches / 4x Inkmoth Nexus / 2x Pendelhaven ), I will be able to acquire them separately, since my monthly investment will not exceed 30 $. I think it's best to buy the 4x Inkmoth Nexus first, am I right?
With the 4x Inkmoth Nexus obtained, should I continue to invest in the lands? If yes, which ones?
I would like, if possible, you would tell me the investment order that I should follow ...
I relinquished Become Imense when I set up the current library, I figured it would work with the fetchlands on the deck, I would also provide them.
I want to attend the FNM of the local store next month, your tips will help a lot.
I take the opportunity to ask, how should we play against Mono Red Burn? Suggest something for the sideboard? What is the strategy to win?

Greetings, fellow Phyrexian!
Itachi45, High Counsel of Jin-Gitaxias, coming in for a comment.
The list looks pretty OK for a budget deck. I’m sure you know that tear one will require some upgrades, but what you’re doing is pretty much exactly what I’ve done with my list, and it’s pretty close to the optimal list the pros are playing at GPs and pro tours. Brother, That Looks... Infected
My first and biggest suggestion to make , with any infect list I advise on, is realestate. Breeding Pool , fetches, and Inkmoth Nexus Are the single biggest price cards that you’ll buy for the deck. The reason is because they are really good! Especially Nexus; I ran a version of this deck that had no Nexus and it was positively miserable to play.
My second suggestion would be looking at my list and comparing it to what spells you’re playing, particularly the creatures. The biggest draw that blue green in fact has is the fact that when you are able to get a good hand it is extremely explosive. If you look in my description I even describe a pretty reasonable turn 2 kill that’s possible with the deck. Not with the version that you have currently, but that’s irrelevant.
Your augurs really need to be either Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch . I have birds of paradise, because noble hierarchs are $40-$60 a piece and that’s rough. The fact that it is mana fixing plus your cathedral of war in the form of one creature is why it’s so good, but it’s still expensive. I find birds of paradise to be an acceptable budget option. I’m not too big on speaker climber, again because you’re looking for an explosive start and that’s a creature that has an effect that actually wants it to be blocked.
Artful Dodge is cute, but Distortion Strike is strictly better.
Lastly, 4x Apostle's Blessing DOES NOT need to be a 4-of. I’d SO easily trade 2-3 of those in for some copies of Become Immense , especially once you can get your hands on some fetchlands (It just occurred to me that you may or may not know what the twins are, but they are things like Flooded Strand , Windswept Heath , Wooded Foothills , Misty Rainforest , which are the most common ones that you see and infect lists.)
All in all, I like what you got going on and I hope that your additions help you find great success and future tournaments!

My first suggestion might be to move the deck from modern to casual and explain you're looking for a modern format deck restriction. It helps clear away the comments of those looking to aid you in building a deck that can have a chance at a small tournament win. For modern 4+ mana spells are either the key strategy of the deck, or not many copies are ran as the top end, or it has a strong mana ramp strategy in the deck to make big spells hit play early.
Now this is definitely far more tuned to fight the average new/casual player. My suggestions for if this is a casual deck would be Sword of Vengeance or Always Watching . both provide vigilance and the power boost for the initiate to trigger the angel proc, vigilance also provides you with a decent wall to stop creature strategies from attacking you.
If the goal is to start attending tournaments maybe look into building g/w standard angels/tokens, you have many of the more expensive pieces, but if modern is the goal mana dorks like Noble Hierarch , Birds of Paradise , or Avacyn's Pilgrim with maybe a Oketra's Monument strategy (it makes the expensive angels cheaper and combo's with Whitemane Lion or Kor Skyfisher to make every W mana a token) Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is also rather good with helping get your creatures stronger, pumping out tokens, and being another gideon to play well with the other one. Honor of the Pure could also be a consideration.

Probably tke out Defy Death and STW for Path to Exile , Glory-Bound is not great, I would cut it and add Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . Take out Fountain of Renewal , add Noble Hierarch . If thats a little on the WOWTHATSEXPENSIVE side, use Avacyn's Pilgrim . Seal Away is also probably worse then Path to Exile . ( Oust and Condemn are good replacements.) Aven Mindcensor could be a nice replacement for Cast Out , but not necesary.

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

Using tcgmarket prices as a reference (let me know if you prefer another pricing guide)
How does this sound?
1x Noble Hierarch UMA $41.67
1x Noble Hierarch RPTQ PROMO $75.25
1x Misty Rainforest MM3 $47.43
1x Snapcaster Mage UMA $54.87

3x Serum Visions MM3 $3.18 each
2x Lightning Bolt A25 $2.77 each
2x Anger of the Gods IMA $2.80 each
I'd like to add in the Foil UMA Lighthouse ($1.68) and the UMA Engineered explosives ($25.48) so let me know if you can find enough cards you want to add those in, if not then that is fine!! Let me know what works!

If by upgrade you mean pouring even more money out and hoping it solves the problem, i think the deck could play Aether Vial & Noble Hierarch as well..
Jokes aside, i would under under no circumstances create a deck that runs Dark Confidant alongside 4x Bloodbraid Elf & 2x Jace, the Mind Sculptor. (...ok maybe if you have plenty ways to gain life or something like Madcap Experiment into Platinum Emperion)
However if you are in blue, you can use its draw spells, meaning that you won't accidentally kill yourself by topdecking high cmc cards with bob.

Well this franken deck has a glaring issue.
It does perfectly agaisnt most deck, with game ending high cmc silver bullets, or plan B with cheap silver bullets mixed with good old stompy beatdown.
While plan B works fine against pretty much everything, i would love to have a 7-9 cmc finisher that actually does something against tron and (UW)control, to get those nice turn 2 scoops!
