I love the idea of angels coming out of graves!

You could swap some plains for Temple Garden or Sunpetal Grove just to have the option of using the last ability of Shalai, Voice of Plenty

if you're just playing casual kitchen table games, then the cards that are considered "good" are largely dependent on what everyone else in your playgroup is using.

if you're looking to play a specific competitive format like standard or modern, the best way to start is researching the current top decks and finding out how they work, and why they're built the way they are.

i will give a few generic pieces of advice for each deck though.

  1. angels: angels are generally kinda expensive. you wont want expensive spells like Wrath of God as your only removal. in fact i'd actually recommend not using board wipes at all in a deck based around creatures. you'll want cheap removal like Path to Exile or Lightning Bolt that can be used while you're still trying to get enough mana to cast your angels. or you can splash green for mana ramp and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . a turn 1 Arbor Elf and turn 2 Utopia Sprawl lets you play a 4-drop (like shalai) on turn 2. then of course theres also Birds of Paradise .

  2. eldrazi extra turns: you're trying to combine 2 themes here that don't really go together, and i'm assuming its because you noticed Emrakul, the Aeons Torn gives you an extra turn. but thats only if you "cast" emrakul. if you actually want to use everything you listed for the deck, it'll be 4 colors. that'll require a land base that is very damaging both to your wallet and life points. and all of the cards you mentioned cost a lot of mana, and you still need to keep space in the deck for interaction to stop your opponents plan. especially if you want to use your planeswalker ultimates, as those will need a lot of protecting. teferi wont ult until turn 8 without some help, and zarek waits until turn 7. and thats if they're never attacked or hit with a burn spell, and you never use their 2nd abilities

@Last_Laugh: interesting suggestions. Most of them actually have been in here, but scrapped for other cards.

  • I have a Bramble Sovereign reserved for this deck, but in the end it never got in. The only reason why is because he only works with ETB and not existing creatures. But he indeed is very good here!

  • Fathom Mage has been scrapped one update ago for Guardian Project . She definitely is amazing and would be the 101st card included but the issue is that her card draw is not reliable. I end up drawing 20 cards when I'm ahead or none because her power is to high. Most creatures of mine enter as a 1/1 anyway. I actually lost and won once with Walking Archive . Strategy is to dump a library worth of counters on him in your end step. But one opponent flashed a Laboratory Maniac in play when I did that a second time.. Just my luck.

  • Rishkar, Peema Renegade yes he is a beast! Also a scrapped and reserved card in the deck. I think I can do without. Might re include him.

  • Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest has been on my radar allot. But I think I'll need to run Dictate of Erebos sorta cards along with it. Not really the direction I want to go, but definitely good!

  • Shalai, Voice of Plenty : I skipped her for a reason. Since ravnica I was able to pick up a Privileged Position and found shalai looking terrible on her first inspection (why would I ever pay 6 mana to..!?). But perhaps she is a good addition! I'll test her.

Thanks man, the suggestions are much appreciated. I'll definitely check your deck out!

@DrowZgam3r: thanks for your suggestions and compliment!

  • Sheoldred, Whispering One is very strong, and even more oppressive! Never have I had a game where someone played her and everybody celebrated with dance and joy. People have scooped a game because of her. But perhaps if I play a compatitive game!

  • Rancor interesting you say its not fitting for edh. To me it's an evasive effect that permanently effects my boardstate. But I might look for a replacement.

Since you're running green i would suggest taking out Burnished Hart and Solemn. THrow in Kodama's Reach and Skyshroud Claim . Put in Beast Within for Slice in Twain . Chromatic Lantern . Cut gilded lotus and darksteel ingot. I think your deck has an identity crisis so I would cut the non-counter themed cards. I would add in Anafenza, the Foremost , Biogenic Upgrade Incubation Druid Forgotten Ancient Hardened Scales Champion of Lambholt Inspiring Call . Scavenging Ooze Pir, Imaginative Rascal Juniper Order Ranger Loyal Guardian Shalai, Voice of Plenty . Mycoloth Fertilid .

Bramble Sovereign seems really good for your 'abuse legendary clones' strategy... granted doubling down on anything for 2 more mana is tits.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty is worth it just for giving you and your team hexproof but it also makes a great evasive beatstick that can pump your team. You've got yourself an allstar here.

Fathom Mage I like here more than Walking Archive. Only you draw instead of everyone and you can draw a lot more cards too. (Get the foil promo... dirt cheap and absolutely gorgeous art)

Rishkar, Peema Renegade is king of the mana ramp here. Don't leave home without one.

Last is Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest which is kinda meta dependent. Much better if you see lots of fetchlands in your playgroup and also better when you run lots yourself (you can technically run all 10 fetches in 4 colors, I did).

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Obviously not budget after the all 10 fetches comment but plenty of options that're more reasonable. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

Wow, super budget...

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Good alt win-con here that doesn't rely on combat.

Herald of Secret Streams - Another finisher here.

Necropolis Regent - Close enough to your price lol.

Thrummingbird - Really good here.

Winding Constrictor - Another good cheap card here.

Ready / Willing and Unbreakable Formation - Protect your board... on the cheap.

Now just a few all-stars in the $2-$3 range.

Vigor , Master Biomancer , Bloodspore Thrinax , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Beast Within , Swords to Plowshares , and Imprisoned in the Moon .

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget but has plenty of budget options. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.

I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.

You could also definitely go for infinite attack phases with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Combat Celebrant , Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Aurelia, the Warleader , etc.

Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.

Let me know how the list comes along.
