RedmundR2 I was saying "lifegain is bad" in meaning sort of what you described... it can be good when you have stuff to support it, but just gaining life with no payoff is a waste of spots in a deck. I have played soul sisters (Didn't like it, storm is much more fun) so I recognize the benifits, it just is sorta conditional.

But you are right, I just sorta generalized, which is bad!

+1 to redmunds comments on the deck, also if you wanted to go the lifegain route, a nice card would be Resplendent Angel that, once you got you life-gain stuff on, would make tons of serra tokens.

If you have Resplendent Angels in your deck, consider Dragonlord Dromoka as an alternative to Thrun, the Last Troll. He's a bit easier to kill, but still immune to counters, and that lifelink is helpful for triggering the angels, and stopping your opponent from casting spells during your turn is very nice against control decks. Also, I would cut Nylea, God of the Hunt, she's nice when she works, but your Devotion to green will often be lower than 5, and her passive abilities aren't all that.

Achieving true competitiveness with your own deck is a very hard task, but it's very rewarding to beat a tier 1 deck with something you made yourself :)

When I look at your deck, I see a lot of hood cards, but not a very clear picture of what you want to achieve. I get mixing cheap elves and expensive angels, but it divides your focus and, I think, leaves you weaker than going all in on either.

For a completely different approach, maybe check out Devotion to White Angels. It's a control deck and mostly uses big angels as finishers, but it's pretty cool and the most competitive Modern Angels deck I've seen on this site.

Hey man. Nice deck. I'd like to remake this deck. Would you like me to? My deck will be focusing on the Resplendent Angel + Lyra Dawnbringer combo and trying to ramp them out as quickly as possible.

I'm curious how the Tron lands are working out for you with paying for all of your expensive cards. I'm trying to do a similar thing with my Modern angels deck (Angels of Paradise), and am using Birds of Paradise and Knight of the White Orchid to try and ramp into the mana I need, and I stop my curve well before you do yours.

Regarding sideboard help, try taking a look at mine:

thanks for the suggestions, yes, those would be great, not sure about the Fumigate, maybe it would be better than Merciless Eviction in some cases, it is cheaper to cast. I blink my stuff with Eerie Interlude and wipe the board with Fumigate gaining a bunch of life. Azor's Elocutors seems very slow, unless you can somehow put more counters on it, but for that to work you need cards dedicated to that and so that's not really an option, even if the plan is to grind the game to a halt, I'll put it in the maybe pile for now. Resplendent Angel looks like a nice addition, I'll see if I can fit it in somewhere. maybe I can fit them all inn somewhere.

Azor's Elocutors could be a fun win

Resplendent Angel could be good

Fumigate would be good too
