Platinum Angel Discussion

A lot of the stuff I'm going to suggest you add might be rather expensive, but the cards are expensive because they're good. I would not go out and buy these cards right away. Proxy them out and try them to see how well your deck flows.
For now, I would add:
Savannah (If you have the money)

Platinum Emperion is indeed superor, if the deck is a tempo deck, but its just not the same lock.
It still loses to infect, and being milled out - which can happen if the opponent draws less, and gained ~infinite life.
It also doesn't work with Pact of Negation or Glorious End (latter being able to exile the stack, thus countering stuff like Supreme Verdict, or any ability)
In the end all this deck, is an exploratory attempt, on seeing how far Platinum Angel can as a lock piece in modern.

You can have a negative life total, and even still be in the game via Platinum Angel and the like.
However you cannot pay life you don't have. So if you have 1 or less life, you cannot activate the souleater by paying life.

Looking nice so far!! Here are some suggestions from my experience, fellow Kaalia player :)
As far as creatures go, pretty much just play the ones you like!
Some less-budget suggestions: Master of Cruelties, pretty much instant kill if they have no blockers. Rune-Scarred Demon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Aurelia, the Warleader, Lord of the Void, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade. Those are some of my favorites. A little heavier on the budget but super fun!
Mid-budget options: Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Platinum Angel, Anya, Merciless Angel, Mana-Charged Dragon, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Angel of Despair, Mother of Runes, Deathless Angel, Hellkite Tyrant, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Blinding Angel, Overseer of the Damned, Akroma, Angel of Fury.
More budget-friendly options: Angel of Serenity, Angelic Arbiter, Indulgent Tormentor, Reya Dawnbringer, Harvester of Souls, Bloodgift Demon, Exquisite Archangel, Herald of the Host (For multiplayer), Angelic Skirmisher, Bruna, the Fading Light (to pair with Gisela), Seraph of the Sword, Guardian of the Gateless.
There are obviously numerous options as far as creatures go. Those are a couple of mine. But don't go off just what other people say- if you don't like the feel of killing someone outright with Master of Cruelties, don't get him! If you want to play a little more defensive you can run Seraph of the Sword and Guardian of the Gateless or something! Just play what you want to! :)
Not really sure about the curses. I personally probably wouldn't run them, but they seem fun!
Dragon Tempest is a good include. Give all your fliers haste!
You definitely want ramp, and I see you have some. The appropriate signets, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, probably the cluestones (They can draw you cards, which is usually more useful than getting a small creature until end of turn, as with the keyrunes).
If you're going to spend a little more, the check lands like Clifftop Retreat and Dragonskull Summit are great. Scry lands such as Temple of Malice and be very useful. Obviously fetchlands and shocklands are good, but not friendly to the budget at all. I don't think they're worth it sometimes. But everything is up to you! :)
Hopefully these suggestions help! I've said it a lot, but play whatever you think will be the most fun for you! Good luck in the building process- I'll be following along to see how it goes! :)

If Platinum Angels end up too often in the grave, increasing their number to 3 would be the ideal answer imho.
As doing so greatly increase s the chances of not drawing all of them even when going 30 cards deep into the library - math is a wonderful help for deckbuilding

Platinum Angel going to the grave is a real pain, that true.
However i don't really worry about grave hate.
When you think about it, it helps this deck, as the opposition tends to have a very limited number of removal spells that can actually deal with the angel - due to recent popularity of low cmc spell (that got hyped due to grixis death's shadow, where they shine).
Without snappy to help out (which is negated by RIP), its really hard to kill the angel due to having to fight through my counters.
As such adding some bonus grave filler, can go a long way to help counter stuff in big mana deck like tron, various green devotion, and land enchanting strategies.
