Nice!

I don't think you need any more recommendations for tuning purposes from me but I've been brewing my own list and these were interesting cards:

Revoke Existence
Path of Ancestry
Seraph Sanctuary
Azor's Gateway  Flip
Scroll of Avacyn
Thaumatic Compass  Flip
The Immortal Sun
Well of Lost Dreams

Happy hunting!

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.

Add the following Lands. They will trigger Regna, the Redeemer the turn she comes into play.
Blighted Steppe
Scoured Barrens
Seraph Sanctuary
Springjack Pasture
Kabira Crossroads

Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)

Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board

Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.

Create Mana
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.

You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.

Your enchantments are good.

Artifacts should be replaced with mana rocks or mana reduction effects like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Oketra's Monument, and Bontu's Monument.

What about a Seraph Sanctuary?

Making some updates to address some of the concerns I have with the early version of this deck:

Land

out:

Horizon Canopy

Brushland

Razorverge Thicket

Temple Garden

Windswept Heath

Wooded Bastion

(no need to have an extreme mana base with this early of a deck version. Expect mana base to continue to change)

in:

Windbrisk Heights

Blighted Woodland

Seraph Sanctuary

Secluded Steppe

Ghost Quarter

Temple of the False God

Creatures

out:

Archangel of Tithes

Avacyn, Guardian Angel

Bruna, the Fading Light

Gisela, the Broken Blade

(no ETB )

Herald of War

(no ETB, cost reduction on turn 5 not powerful enough)

Oracle of Mul Daya

(too expensive)

Weathered Wayfarer

(expensive value negated by real ramp)

in:

Aegis Angel

Angelic Arbiter

Banisher Priest

Artifact

out:

Chromatic Lantern

(too expensive for a 2 color deck)

in:

Swiftfoot Boots

Hedron Archive

Enchantment

out:

Anointed Procession

(off strat)

in:

Into the Wilds

planeswalker

in:

Ajani Unyielding

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Elspeth Tirel

My first thought is that you're not taking nearly as much advantage of Licia's cost-reduction ability as you could be. Lands such as Wind-Scarred Crag and Bloodfell Caves fix your colors, and their enter-the-battlefield-tapped drawback is mitigated by the fact that the lifegain makes Licia cheaper the turn they enter play. Radiant Fountain is basically a Dark Ritual in this deck!

Other lands to consider: Seraph Sanctuary - Springjack Pasture - Kabira Crossroads

On a similar note, look for cards that give you an effect on top of gaining you life. Pristine Talisman effectively taps for two in this deck. Zuran Orb can give you a turn-3 Licia all by itself. Renewed Faith can either power out an early Licia or cycle in the late game for (essentially) zero mana. Vraska's Contempt essentially exiles any creature or planeswalker for the bargain price of BB. And so on.

Knight of the White Orchid is a bit tricky - it's an ok card, mostly, but not when you are on the play and hit your lands. But if you use Ghost Quarter it gets pretty good, since ghost quarter leaves you down a land, compared to your opponent. Also, 2/2 first strike can be randomly relevant. I've tried playing it turn 2 on the draw a few times, and that is pretty convincing against fair decks - suddenly you are ahead on mana, without having really spent a card on it. Also worth noting: Your land comes into play untapped. What is it you don't like about it being an ETB-effect?

Since you have Time of Need in your deck, more legendary angels instead of serra angel could be a way to go. Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Bruna, the Fading Light + Gisela, the Broken Blade, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Sigarda, Host of Herons, are all decent legendary angels, and bringing them as one-offs is ok, as long as you have tutors for them.

I would exchange Prepare for Path to Exile. It's a bit of a dull card in comparison, since it's played by everyone and their mother, but that is because of efficiency. One mana to get rid of a creature is ridiculous, even if your opponent gets a basic land. Of course the land is relevant in the earliest turns of the game. But from turn 3 and on, I don't think anyone plays creatures they would like to exchange for basic lands. So... try with a 2/2 split.

Aerial Responder... hmmm... what is important? Lifegain? flying? that it's a creature? that it's a 3-drop? There are all kinds of good 3-drops in modern, depending on budget. Eternal Witness, Kitchen Finks, Renegade Rallier, Mirran Crusader, Blade Splicer... it really depends on what you want. Or you could go down a mana on ccm, for something like Scavenging Ooze or Qasali Pridemage. Or you could go a mana up, and add a couple of token-producing planeswalkers (since they do pretty much the same as Oketra's Monument they benefit from the same cards as the rest of the token-plan) - it could be Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

I suggested Seraph Sanctuary because it's on-theme for your deck, not because it's particularly good in any way.

Hey xyr0s,

Thanks for your response. No offense taken.

On Citadel Castellan, I have replaced her with another Thalia. For more mana, I’ve ordered 4 Temple Gardens and 4 Sunpetal Groves.

I wholeheartedly agree with your suggestion on 24 lands, so I’ll take out the Paladin to make it 60. I’m not a big fan of The Knight, as it is only a ETB effect.

On Prepare, how many do you think I should run? What should I put in for it?

What do you think I should replace Responder with?

I can’t find a full replacement for Serra Angel, but I have got a Shadows Sigarda for one.

I’ll try playing Seraph Sanctuary, but I’m not sure that Colourless mana will work. I’ll try it with the dual lands when I get them.

Thanks for your response,

Hexflexagon
