Thank you for the comment JKRice!

I do like the Thought-Knot Seer . It's drawback shouldn't be too bad as it's being flickered and I can just remove a new threat if needed. I think I would swap in those for the Vendilion Clique . The big reason I like Eldrazi Temple is it makes the Eldrazi Displacer ability cheaper too. That is intended to be a big part of the deck because of the instant speed ability for both sides of the board.

I like Restoration Angel and the instant speed is definitely nice, but I'm not sure how much better it really is since Flickerwisp can let you flicker any permanent rather than just one of my own creatures. And I think the fact that it's non-angel creature you control and she can't bounce another copy of herself is another drawback.

As far as going Bant, that was something I considered as the first attempt at the deck. I was really trying to avoid going three colors, but Knight of Autumn is really good for sure and you may be right about making it ultra-competitive. Not that I expect this deck strategy to be tier 1 by any means. I may end up playing around with a three color version just to stick those in.

Unless you run more etb eldrazi, like Thought-Knot Seer , I don’t think eldrazi temple is a good idea.

Restoration Angel is probably better than flickerwisp, just for the instant speed interaction? I’m not sure

I think this is definitely a good deck already, but if you want it to be super competitive, you will have to go Bant for cards like Knight of Autumn and Selkie Hedge-Mage . That way you can also play one drop mana dorks

Seems like a good start, but I think it lacks a little oomph! I have a flicker deck that I'm very fond of, so I'll throw out some cool thematic cards to be aware of (most will be better for Commander format than Modern), and you can play with whatever fits your playstyle. Ephara, God of the Polis , Venser, the Sojourner , Restoration Angel , Deadeye Navigator , Strionic Resonator , Flickerwisp , and though they're obscenely expensive Snapcaster Mage and Celestial Colonnade both can add a lot to this sort of deck. My two strongest recommendations are Panharmonicon which has obvious benefits and Venser, Shaper Savant which seems like a soft counterspell until you realize it can target lands and let you nuke someone's mana base back into the dark ages. Super anti-fun but incredibly powerful.

Here are some ideas in Abzan colors that don't use the graveyard. I don't know how useful they would be in your deck, but here they are:

  1. Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune / Sunbond = Infinite life and an / Spike Feeder
  2. Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond = Infinite tokens
  3. Conspiracy + Turntimber Ranger = Infinite tokens
  4. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Soul Warden / Essence Warden = Infinite Life
  5. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Cathars' Crusade = Infinite +1/+1 counters
  6. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Death Match = Board wipe that gets around indestructible
  7. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Genesis Chamber = Infinite Tokens
  8. Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond / Vizkopa Guildmage = Drain the board
  9. Tainted Remedy + Beacon of Immortality = Kill target opponent

Like I said, I don't know how many of these will be relevant in your deck, but they're some ideas.

Black can also be for reanimation and tutors. Angel of Despair is a good Orzhov Angel and Rune-Scarred Demon is a good Demon. With Kaalia you play a lot of high CMC creatures because her ability lets you cheat these creatures onto the battlefield. There's however a drawback when playing so many high CMC creatures, it can make your overall deck's mana curve clunky to play, but you'll have this problem with any Angel deck because many Angels have high mana costs. If Kaalia is getting to attack and you're getting to cheat creatures onto the battlefield then you're in a good position. This is however not always the case thus want back-up plans, other ways to take advantage of high CMC creatures without Kaalia. Build your deck in a way that you're not completely relying on Kaalia in a game.

Reanimation can be a back-up plan. Ways to get high CMC creatures out of your hand/library into your graveyard and then onto the battlefield. Or ways to reanimate your dead creatures or even Kaalia since she will be a prime target for opponent's removal. Some options are:

Another back-up plan is ramp especially Signets and Talismans. High CMC creatures have high mana costs which ramp can help with to cast them without needing Kaalia. Low CMC mana rocks (0-2 CMC) also help to ramp into Kaalia which is good. Some options are:

Other back-up plans can be other ways to cheat high CMC creatures onto the battlefield or combo finishers. Some options are:

With Kaalia you want lots of protection and haste enablers because you want to be able to attack with her the turn you play her and you want to be able to protect her so she can do this. Some options are:

Kaalia can provide a lot of value especially if you can successfully cheat a high CMC creature onto the battlefield the turn you play her then you're in a really good position in a game. For instance with Kaalia cheat Aurelia, the Warleader onto the battlefield. Aurelia gives you another combat phase thus another creature can be cheated onto the battlefield with Kaalia because she gets to attack again.
