Pearl Medallion Discussion

Aethaleon Mind's Eye is good, and I have considered adding it. Card draw is great, but it isn't a priority addition. I have cards like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in this deck for game enders with card draw. If I play him, and he is not answered I win on the spot. Draw + 12/12 body + annihilator is just disgusting. I have enough cycling in this deck, and have played enough games where card draw is good, but doesn't need to be a priority. Currently my biggest priority is finding ways to add Gideon Jura, and Loyal Retainers as both cards could make this deck just painful to play against. Gideon Jura would work so well with Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Loyal Retainers would be insane due to the amount of pressure the legendary creatures in this deck force. If they are removed which of course players who play against this deck enough will be prepared to remove some of the big hitters asap, but Loyal Retainers adds an option to bring back cards that were answered. I really like Oketra's Monument, and I think I will just remove Pearl Medallion for it. Prototype Portal is interesting, and I will also give it a playtest. Thank you for the suggestions.

I have added some cards to my maybeboard since they have sparked my interest, and I feel some of them may be great additions to this deck. Looking for feedback on what others think. Me, and my friends think Loyal Retainers would be a great addition, and should be swapped for Pearl Medallion. Rest in Peace and Cast Out I also feel would be solid. Looking for other opinions, and feedback about my maybeboard. Wondering what others think about adding some or all these cards. Also what you would take out for some of the maybeboard cards, and why! Thank you!!

For commander, you don't want to run low power level cards (take out Graceful Cat, Oreskos Sun Guide, Sacred Cat, Skyhunter Prowler, Captain's Claws, Journeyer's Kite, and Ajani's Mantra at least). These cards may be okay early game in modern, but are completely useless in commander. Also, cards that do not help you toward your goal of cats/equipment, should be taken out (Ajani's Chosen, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign).
Okay, now that we've just gotten rid of half your deck, here are some replacements. Coat of Arms, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Leonin Squire, Sigarda's Aid, Path to Exile, Ajani, Caller of the Pride and White Sun's Zenith. In commander, mana is kind of important, so cards like Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion should not be left out. Also, you might want to change your commander to Kemba, Kha Regent. He has much more synergy with the cat/equipment archetype. Hope this helps!

Yeah, I'm not trying to be as oppressive as Iona, Shield of Emeria, and I'm not dealing with a lot of counter spells in my meta to need Cavern of Souls. Metallic Mimic, however is one I missed. That could be good. The ramp/discount suit you described is good, and maybe I should add some. I took out Gift of Estates, and Pearl Medallion because I wasn't too worried about needing ramp due to low CMC. I do have Endless Horizons, Oath of Lieges, Solemn Simulacrum, Caged Sun. Maybe Pearl Medallion would be good. I guess I'm trying to keep as many clerics in as possible to benefit from their various abilities. But like you said this is a passive deck, so an explosive finisher is something I'm looking for. Charge Across the Araba, Aetherflux Reservoir,Reverse the Sands, and the Karma Stern Judge combo are some example of what I mean, since I'm not likely to win by beat down until I get Coat of Arms on board.

Felidar Sovereign is a decent white win-con, or go for lockdowns with Iona, Shield of Emeria, Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, but they also require other spots for ramp and additional prison spells. Things like Cavern of Souls and Metallic Mimic could be good for tribal aspect. Pearl Medallion, Myriad Landscape, Oreskos Explorer, Gift of Estates and Caged Sun are good in mono-white. Clerics is a tough tribe to fight against 3 enemies at once as they're mostly pacifists, so the lifegain aspect could be a good way to go... +1

This deck suffers from having low count of lands and ramp, specially one that plays a ton, ton of high cost creatures. Most of the time you'll be just sitting there with uncasteable cards. Remember to have 10 mana ramp cards at least, and with that many high costing creatures, I'll play like 20 ramp spells. Add Basalt Monolith, Thought Vessel, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Pearl Medallion, Solemn Simulacrum, Jet Medallion, Charcoal Diamond, Star Compass, Hedron Archive, Pyramid of the Pantheon, Thran Dynamo, Coldsteel Heart, Astral Cornucopia, Worn Powerstone, Everflowing Chalice. There are even more options out there to choose from. Maybe Urza's Incubator is the best option if you want it to be an Angel Tribal deck.
Try cutting some of the creatures and keep the ones that will most likely win you the game when you play them. One way to determine which ones you want more is to think "did this card help me win the game?" "did drawing it felt like a dead draw?" "Do I want it soon in the game to start going on, or later to finish off".
I like that you play a ton of mass removal, like a control-ish game, but you gain so little with it other than cleaning the board of threats, and casting a Wrath after you spend a lot of mana a turn ago casting a big angel makes you loose even more.
Anyways, go testing how it works. Teysa decks usually a play combo with Darkest Hour and a sac outlet.
Oh, one last thing. Looks like this deck is 99 cards. Teysa appears in the creature list aside of being your commander.
