Looks good!

Not sure if you play against many decks with Grave Pact, but I have found Sigarda, Host of Herons to be a life saver and of course she has hexproof.

Hermit Druid is really good at filling up your graveyard and will keep you stocked on lands. I just saw that he has spiked like crazy in the past week tho..

I personally like Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty, as they can all are pretty good when you need to cast something. Shalai can protect your graveyard from Bojuka Bog and stops opponents from targeting Kathril before his ability resolves.

ConstantVigilance I don't think you'll find one unifying creature type to cover all guilds, unless we're talking humans, because humans are as plentiful and diverse as they appear in the real world.

Demons are black aligned creatures. Dragons are red, Beasts are green, and so forth for many of the stereotypical creature types. All splashes into other colors occasionally but not enough to warrant an entire cycle dedicated to it without a really good reason. If we ever visited Serra's realm - a realm made by Serra the Benevolent that she populated with mainly angels she created as the guardians and human worshipers. Serra's realm got corrupted by the influence of Phyrexia (mainly black aligned), so the normally white-aligned angels could be influenced to draw on other types of mana, thinking in the lines of Innistrad's top angels Sigarda, Host of Herons, Bruna, Light of Alabaster and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. But that would hardly make sense for the Ravnica guilds.

Another choice for a diverse creature type could be elemental - as they can be both beings of pure mana (Cavalier of Dawn / Omnath, Locus of the Roil) or beings of a specific elemental type (air/water is often blue, earth/fire is red, earth can be green, tree is green).

As Boza said; on Ravnica finding angels outside white, white-red and to a smaller extend white-black (there's 3 over 3 blocks) is impossible. As such I don't think we should attribute the guilds' characteristics on this cycle, if ConstantVigilance wants to keep the unifying creature type.

If you'd rather ditch the unifying creature type, here's a few suggestions for replacing creature types - you may need to change some stats and keyword abilities to better match these.

multimedia on Kathril

Hey, unfortunately it's going to difficult to be able to get Kathril to a power level 8-9 as the build around. Gluttonous Slug? Really?

When your best play with Kathril is to Entomb Zetalpa, Primal Dawn then it's pretty flawed to be high power level Commander. To make power level 8-9 you want to have an infinite combo as a win condition. The first things I would do to increase the power level is make your deck playable without Kathril. This means adding more ramp and using strategies that don't require Kathril to win. This also means cutting many creatures who are only good because they have keywords for Kathril.

Reanimation can be a high power level strategy using cards that also have synergy with Kathril. You already have lots of reanimation enablers, but lack actual reanimation. Couple of directions that I think have potential for a higher power level with Kathril are voltron with Worldslayer and Razacats reanimation combo with Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Could combine both of these strategies to make your deck more fun, more avenues to winning. Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Razaketh, the Foulblooded are good creatures with Kathril and they're also creatures who you want to reanimate. Sigarda, Host of Herons is another good creature with Kathril and she's good with voltron.

Eerie Ultimatum can reanimate entire creature combos including the entire Razacats combo and/or all equipment/auras in your graveyard including Worldslayer with Puresteel Paladin to free equip it all to Kathril/Avacyn/Sigarda. Eternal Witness can recur Ultimatum and Ultimatum can reanimate Witness to do it again. Ultimatum can have great interaction with Worldslayer since it can reanimate it as well as reanimate lands, mana rocks, mana dorks which Worldslayer will destroy. Razacats combo is using Razaketh to assemble the infinite combo of Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Blood Artist who is the win condition. Main reason to include this win condition combo is it uses reanimation spells and reanimation is a good strategy with Kathril.

Flying creatures are good with Kathril and they're also good with equipment. When Kathril is indestructible/hexproof it can act like pseudo Avacyn this makes Worldslayer an option. Wipe the board of all permanents leaving only Kathril equipped with Worldslayer or reanimate Avacyn before you trigger Worldslayer. A voltron strategy requires some equipment, but more important are ways to cheat equipment onto the battlefield and cheat equip costs.

If you like these ideas then I offer to help you to update your deck. Good luck with your deck.

High_Priest_of_Avacyn My brother suggested I do selesnya for an angel deck since green ramps. I have 3 possible choices I like. what do you suggest? Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist Sigarda, Host of Herons Trostani, Selesnya's Voice

raspberryfish25 on Karametra, Enchantress

I never really thought about how Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Karametra, God of Harvests interact because you are right you are ramping a lot of plains with Karametra. How quickly are you ramping in this deck because when I ran Karametra as my commander I found by the time I was able to cast her most of my small support creatures had already been cast from my hand.

I also agree going a Voltron style of play in EDH is risky unless you are using creatures like Uril, the Miststalker or Sigarda, Host of Herons with built in strong evasion / protection. However, I found using Ancestral Mask as one of the cards in the 99 makes for a strong secondary wincon. Sure, the Maze of Ith and boundless instant speed spot removal exist but, if you time that Voltron alpha strike correctly you can typically knock one opponent out the same turn you play Ancestral Mask. Not sure how good you are at politicking at your table but, even if someone at the table has an answer to your big Voltron creature you can typically talk your way into letting the creature live until combat resolves. This is assuming the person with the answer is not the person you are trying to kill. If that is the case then you are screwed!

Anyways, glad I was able to give you some advice.

Yo cPute, thank you for being my 100th upvote!

Tuvasa has been a super fun deck to play and one of the more infamous ones in my circle. I been tempted to convert her into a more cEDH version of it and move to enchantress stax, but I been having a lot of fun with her.

My friends do recommend Sigarda, Host of Herons to me before, however the only thing is 5 CMC is quite of an investment and doesn't provide enough of an impact for a 5 drop. Hexproof is extremely good but I wouldn't know what to cut for it to be honest. I even though of running Bruna, Light of Alabaster as another option as well. Any suggested cuts or edits to try it out?
