As mentioned, it doesn't work specifically because the Imprint mechanic refers to "the exiled card." If you use the Commander replacement effect (not trigger) to instead move your Commander to the command zone, it's not exiled by the Semblance Anvil after all and Imprint has nothing to refer to.

The same would happen if you were to use, say, a Riftsweeper to recover a card exiled with Imprint. The Imprint ability would no longer function for lack of an exiled card to refer to.

As griffstick stated, you can imagine "exile" as a state that card can be in, same is true for command zone. In this case, you try to exile commander with Semblance Anvil and it goes on the stack. When it comes on stack you trigger the commander position change and then you can choose whether to exile it or to send it to the command zone. If you choose command zone then you really didn't fulfill the requirements of Semblance Anvil so it won't work, more clearly you didn't exile anything with Semblance Anvil so when you would invoke the Semblance Anvils ability you would not have a target... Hope that fully clears your mind.

I believe if you put your cmdr into your hand with Rescue, you could choose to instead put it into the command zone. . The same is true for Semblance Anvil. However if you let your commander go to the command zone Semblance Anvil will have nothing imprinted. The card must be exiled. As the imprint mechanic states.

Also if you were to imprint your commander and let it go to exile your commander will remain in exile indefinitely

If I used a card like Rescue to return my commander to my hand, then use Semblance Anvil to exile the commander from my hand, would I be able to place my commander back in the command zone and still be able to utilize the effects of Semblance Anvil? Does exiling the commander still count as satisfying the requirements of the spell if I can put it back in play?

Joe_Ken_ True Conviction was already in there. The other two are good options, but Urza's Incubator has quite the prize tag. If I decide this deck is worth a lot of money, I'd rather buy the Avacyn, Angel of Hope. I believe the Semblance Anvil sets me two far back. The additional card it costs me to play is rather bad in a mono-white deck, where card draw is hard to come by. Thank you for your suggestions never the less.

Thanks for the suggestions Joe_Ken_! I love your deck, having a double attack phase can definitely cause some crazy life gain. I feel like it's rare to see another Angel fan! Although are decks are definitely different they look to do the same thing.

First off I have both Endless Atlas and Mask of Memory . I found that discarding cards hurts me more that anything and paying 2 mana for one card isn't enough for me.

I also own Angelic Skirmisher and Serra's Guardian which I'm now considering adding back because vigilance is amazing in this deck.

Urza's Incubator is a great call! I'd love to add that in there but taking something out would be so hard to do. D: Back to the drawing board.

Semblance Anvil is a great find! But I wouldn't want to get rid of any of my angel's but early game that might be a great thing to do to jump start the game.

I've considered Aetherflux Reservoir but I'd rather just never die by trying to become unkillable with the win condition being Test of Endurance .

Rather than True Conviction I'd recommend Akroma's Memorial however, that card is currently in my Golos Eldrazi deck.

The way I see it so far is if I added True Conviction I would then add both Angelic Skirmisher and Serra's Guardian for vigilance. OR I'd add Urza's Incubator and Semblance Anvil and maybe add back Akroma's Memorial . Sadly taking things out to add things in is such a hard decision to make. Is there anything you'd swap out for these three cards?

True Conviction is a card that I’ve tested out in my Aurellia angel tribal list and the double strike is a good boost to attack power especially with all the big angels you’ll have.

Mask of Memory is a cheap artifact to pick up that is good for card draw since it will let you draw two cards and then discard one from your hand.

Urza's Incubator and Semblance Anvil are both good cards to help lower the costs of your angels by a good amount.

Aetherflux Reservoir is similar to test of endurance for your deck since you can instant speed kill switch an opponent in case some shenanigans would happen before your turn.

Angelic Skirmisher is a good angel for your deck since it can give all your creatures a choice of 3 keywords at the beginning of each combat.

Endless Atlas would be a good card draw artifact for your deck.

Here is my Aurellia angel tribal deck in case you’d like to check it out. I think I’ve got it tuned up pretty well and have it at a nice high power area. Aurelia's Angelic crusade

Have you thought of adding in Urza's Incubator or Semblance Anvil to make your angels cheaper. Also True Conviction can be a really good game ending piece.
