Razorverge Thicket Discussion

Nice. I think it'd be in your best interest to keep the 4x Mimic in, but if you need to cut 2x for the last tusker and baloth I don't think it'll absolutely cripple the deck or anything like that. Keeping the budget in mind, you might look at Canopy Vista and Cinder Glade instead of Blossoming Sands and Rugged Highlands. They have the ability to come in untapped turn 3 to drop a Baloth or Thoctar, and they're both under $3. A step up from those would be the fastlands (Copperline Gorge and Razorverge Thicket) but that would obviously bring you past your $100 budget. It's a nice upgrade to consider for the future though, since they're better but not as expensive as Cavern of Souls

Razorverge Thicket is good one. You could swap some basics for a playset.

Making some updates to address some of the concerns I have with the early version of this deck:
(no need to have an extreme mana base with this early of a deck version. Expect mana base to continue to change)
(no ETB )
(no ETB, cost reduction on turn 5 not powerful enough)
(expensive value negated by real ramp)
(too expensive for a 2 color deck)

Also, your lands look pretty ok to me. If you want some less painful duals, there's Sunpetal Grove, Razorverge Thicket, Brushland, and Canopy Vista. I suggest only playing up to 3 Razorverge if you do play it, but the best out of these for your deck is probably Sunpetal Grove since you have fetches and stuff. If you add these, keep at least 1 forest and 3 plains.
If your concern is geting 3 white for Spectral Procession, there's Wooded Bastion. It's quite pricy, but usually the most filter lands you'd play in a deck is 2, so at least you're not missing out on much by not buying a playset. I recommend only playing 1 since your land count is pretty low.

I like that you are playing enchantress, I have played enchantress for about a year, started with Selvala, Explorer Returned, moved to Karametra, God of Harvests, then Dragonlord Dromoka, then Captain Sisay, finally decided on Selvala, Explorer Returned in a giant stupid circle.
[Help Needed] EDH GW Enchantress is my build.
I'd suggest you drop a bunch of cards like Temple of Plenty, Tranquil Expanse, Tranquil Garden, Vec Townships, Scattered Groves, Selesnya Guildgate, Riftstone Portal, Graypelt Refuge, Grove of the Guardian, Mosswort Bridge, Blossoming Sands, Exotic Orchard, for Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Wooded Foothills, Flooded Strand, Arid Mesa, Misty Rainforest, Verdant Catacombs, Marsh Flats, Razorverge Thicket, Brushland, Savannah and Wooded Bastion or the likes.

Creatures I would recommend for this deck would include Sigarda, Host of Herons, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Herald of War and a couple of value angels like Baneslayer Angel or Archangel of Tithes. Angel of Jubilation shuts down a lot of decks that are black or sacrifice intensive.
Instants and sorceries I would include if you want to consistently get Avacyn out include Worldly Tutor, Eladamri's Call, possibly Traverse the Ulvenwald, Green Sun's Zenith and any other similar creature tutors.
Removal in white is really good so things such as Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are staples in white for commander, if you plan to run Avacyn then some more board wipes would be a good idea (i.e. Hour of Revelation, Austere Command). Decree of Justice while ok is a bit costly in terms of mana. A strictly better card would be Entreat the Angels for the cost of 6 mana into decree you only get 1 angel, for the cost of 5 you get one angel with entreat, and for 6 with miracle you get 4 angels with entreat.
cards to take out include Blessed Light (simply better removal out there), Mirror Gallery (the lack of copy creature spells make this one obsolete in this deck), Untamed Kavu (not enough versatility or utility), Evra, Halcyon Witness (doesn't quite fit into this deck unless there is a combo I am unaware of), Divine Reckoning (better board wipes out there), Marwyn, the Nurturer (not enough elves to fully utilise the ability), Daring Archaeologist (you most likely won't be able to cast enough historic spells to make this guy big enough), Steel Leaf Champion (good beatstick, only problem is the extremely intensive green cost) and at least one land (preferably a land that just enters tapped and does nothing else).
some recommended staples for angel theme would be Grand Abolisher that way people cannot immediately counter or remove your spells, Urza's Incubator, Angels usually have very high mana costs so them costing 2 less is very beneficial. If you are unable to shut down the board entirely with Avacyn and Shalai, there is another solution but I warn you, people who run mono colour will hate it: Iona, Shield of Emeria. A card so obnoxious even I wonder why it hasn't been banned in EDH yet. it is basically night night for mono colour decks and if you can find a way to copy it (Cough Cough Helm of the Host Cough Cough) then your opponents had better pray they have colourless removal or run a colourless deck.
Also needs some card draw too, cards such as Howling Mine or Font of Mythos can help, if you're feeling nice. However if you want to be terrifyingly evil, then use something like Mind's Eye. some card draw spells I would recommend are Harmonize, Greater Good, Rishkar's Expertise and Abundance.
Overall this does seem like it could be potentially the meanest deck at any EDH table, any game featuring angels and/or Avacyn are bound to be very slow and oppressive, the one thing angels are famous for is being oppressive as hell (for reference look at Iona or Linvala). A good number of creatures for angel tribal is 26-29 creatures with about 3 of them being supporting creatures (case example being grand abolisher or eternal witness, maybe an Aven Mindcensor to be even more oppressive) of course the mana dorks can also help as well, in this deck I would say a good number is about 32 creatures with a maximum of 7 supporting units. I am curious as to how oppressive this deck can potentially get in a game. Good Luck finishing this. I can guarantee angel tribal is a very fun thing to do.

swagfrog You could cut Razorverge Thicket or Reflecting Pool, but i feel like the deck doesn't need more shocks and it doesn't want to cut any. But still i could see playing Steam Vents in place of either one i mentioned.

For future reference: these are the dual lands I try to run in my two color decks, in case you decide you want to cut all those comes-into-play-tapped guildgates and such you still have listed from the precon. This goes for Slimefoot too; basically this is the "secret sauce" for the starting point for any two color deck I use:
And then the rest is basics and a few colorless utility lands. I pretty much always run an Exotic Orchard and a City of Brass/Mana Confluence as well, but those are less necessary in a two color deck so I wouldn't prioritize it. There will still be special exceptions; for example, I also run Krosan Verge anywhere I can stick it, but that land only exists for the GW color pairing. A good mana base can go a long way to making your deck run smoother! So be sure to put some thought into that aspect of things as well.
