Restoration Angel Discussion

The reason your mana curve is a struggle for you is because you have a bunch of random high cost creatures that don't synergize well or do much for you. In this kind of deck, you want a list somewhat like the following:
That's really all you need for creatures. I'd run another copy of Venser, the Sojourner in there too so you draw him more often. For spells, I don't think you need Eerie Interlude or Unsummon. They just don't do much. I'd throw in some removal and countermagic, like Spell Snare, Mana Leak, Path to Exile, Logic Knot, and Settle the Wreckage.

Love that you're trying this with a deck that doesn't have black. Doubly so for doing it with Rubinia (the art on her Commander 2013 edition is so awesome). So good on you :)
Ehh, things you could use... Things that blink maybe? Like Cloudshift, Restoration Angel, Ghostly Flicker (Be sure they return under your control). Allows you to retain control of the things you stole, while giving Rubinia a break. Something like Assault Suit should also be hilarious. Steal a creature, slap the suit on it, untap Rubinia and keep letting it go around the table (note that the equipment always remains yours, so they can't unequip it if it is on their creature). Something a bit unconventional for this sort of deck would be Homeward Path, but if you think about it, what's better than stealing someone's creatures? Stealing someone's creatures while having the ability to give them right back.. Under some strict conditions, of course. Remember, you decide when the homeward path is activated, so it can never work against you.
That's all that springs to mind right now, hope you'll get some inspiration out of it.

Use Doomsday to put Grand Abolisher, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Restoration Angel, Final Fortune and Necropotence on top of your library. Then attack with Kaalia, putting Hellcarver Demon into play and connect with it. Cast all the spells and take your extra turn, winning the game.

Mainboard is updated! I opted against Restoration Angel because Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is better in this deck. There aren't many blink targets and this deck doesn't care about instant vs sorcery speed.
Blood Baron is probably very replacable. Obzedat is for when we need to win fast and only if they can't kill it. Blood Baron is to beat removal decks. Blood Baron could easily become a Stormbreath Dragon. In fact, it probably should. I like Blood Baron because it doesn't die to removal, the protections are very relevant, and it gains life. Stormbreath doesn't gain life, but it's much better vs Jace decks and I think aggro decks are good enough as it is.

Oh man, this deck is so ridiculously out of date. It was fantastic back in its day, but the meta has changed. I could probably update it without too much effort. I'll do that one of these days.
As for Goryo's Vengeance, the problem is that I don't have very many ways to dump legendary creatures into the graveyard. And I don't want to go all-in reanimator as that would change the deck too much. The best Goryo's Vengeance deck I know is Bacon LAZERS!!. That list is so sweet, but it's Esper, not Mardu.
I think to update this, first thing is to find room for the 4th Lili and probably 1 Liliana, the Last Hope. Then I'd try to fit Restoration Angel in here. Resto is really good. Possibly good enough to justify changing to a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker deck. Phyrexian Arena probably has to go to the sideboard or just be cut altogether.
If I finish this lab report before too long I'll update this tonight. Otherwise I'll try to do it tomorrow.

Have you thought about Aether Vial? That allows you to get your stuff out at instant speed. Also Restoration Angel and Flickerwisp might be good, as they flicker your stuff and allow for another ETB effect.

To be honest this deck was more a deck for casual deck than competitive mostly because my local game store doesn't host Modern events.Bad news: Flickerwisp doesn't get the infinite combo with Saheeli Rai online. Restoration Angel also doesn't although it is a really good card i just don't think it will fit well in this deck.
Its true that is deck is a bit slow so i will temper with mana base a little bit.
Thanks a lot for the Eerie Interlude by the way, great card.
