VesuvanDoppelbanger I actually had a Doubling Season in the deck, but my playgroup got fed up with it and banned it from our playgroup! :(

Love the ramp that abuses Atraxa, Praetors' Voice! I'll definitely add Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice.

Love the cycle of the Parallax cards to use with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, one question about fading (I'm not too familiar with the mechanic). The counter that you take off at your upkeep, does that counter get you the effect, or do you have to take off an additional counter to get the effect? Norn's Annex I used to have but took out since people just paid the life and didn't care but Sphere of Safety is a good one to try since I have some other enchantments in the deck too.

The golden goose for this deck has a hefty price tag, but Doubling Season often ends games.

Ramp that abuses Atraxa would be helpful. Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice can become huge mana sources.

Mirrodin's Core is excellent fixing.

The whole cycle of Parallax "X" get very interesting when sustainable w/ Atraxa. - Parallax Wave, Parallax Tide, and Parallax Nexus.

Norn's Annex and Sphere of Safety to keep your PWs safe.

Rzepkanut on Shu Yun, the "Subtle" Tempest

Hey friend! I like your take on Shu Yun, seems cool. Got a few card ideas for you...some pump spells Fatal Frenzy, Onward / Victory, Rush of Blood, some more creature control Ride Down, some mana ramp Thran Dynamo, Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet, Boros Signet, some versatile counters Commit / Memory, Unsubstantiate, additional protection for Shu Whispersilk Cloak, more card draw Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist

Add far as cuts I think first I would go down to 38 lands and add in those mana rocks. They will help you get a faster start in your games. I'm not sure if the Pariah/Stuffy Doll combo is so great since you have no tutors to find it and only having half of it is kinda weak. They are decent at scaring away people so who knows maybe its cool, but they look like cuts to me. The pump spells can replace other pump spells and same with the counterspells. I'm not a fan of the voting, "offering" and "tempting" cards most of the time...but I don't have a group hug kinda deck so maybe they are super fun to cast and i don't know it. Norn's Annex is too easy to circumvent if needed, its never felt like a great protection card to me in practice.

Good luck and happy gathering!!

mastermew and Paddra i agree with both of you on Dovin Baan, i will add him soon,Jace, Unraveler of Secrets is a good choice too since i like to scry it also removes creatures so it gives some protection. Norn's Annex is a card i have been trying to trade for and ill do my best to get one.ill think about both Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and Elspeth, Knight-Errant

superphantom on Gisela Angel Tribal

I see what you mean about Norn's Annex, but those types of cards are there mostly to give me some extra setup time against faster decks. And once Gisela is out paying life to do half damage is probably not worth it in most cases. I definitely could use more draw, as my go-to is politicking Magus of the Wheel back onto the battlefield with Dawnbreak Reclaimer. But removing cards is a difficult and painful process for me so any assistance would be much appreciated :)
