Stoic Angel Discussion

Hey, I'm also in process of cashing out, of Standard. I can't take Wizards bullshit with that format anymore, but I'm still going to play Commander :)
I make and play causal budget multiplayer Commander decks. I try to limit cards to $6 or less each. Of course there are some exceptions mostly lands/tutors, but for the most part I stick to this rule. I love Commander because I can buy a single staple card and then use that card in all my decks.
This is currently what I'm doing is buying singles of all the budget staple cards for Commander. It's especially helpful with lands because lands take up the largest portion of cost of a Commander deck, but I only need a single copy of a land which I can then use in all my decks. The cost of lands is one reason why I'm leaving Standard. I can no longer justify the cost of playable manabases, there are not enough options.
Some staples in Bant colors as well as other Angels to consider:
- Mystic Remora
- Smothering Tithe
- Swords to Plowshares
- Eladamri's Call
- Mystical Tutor
- Arcane Denial
- Beast Within
- Return to Dust
- Nature's Claim
- Supreme Verdict
- Day of Judgment
- Detention Sphere
- Sublime Archangel
- Stoic Angel
- Karmic Guide
- Shalai, Voice of Plenty
- Angel of Serenity
- Luminarch Ascension
Jenara can grow her own power with her ability this makes her a good attacker and an excellent source of Commander damage to your opponents. Exalted is a way to take more advantage of Jenara by giving her additional power as long as she's the only creature attacking.
I'm offering all these other cards suggestions, but in my opinion priority for upgrades to consider here are the lands and mana production.

i didn’t think about that. Seems like a good addition as soon as i tested the deck and find something to cut. But a few cards like Stoic Angel are also waiting for some spare slots. Thanks for that suggestion!

My only problem with this deck is that my opponents just focus on killing Arcades and removing Assault Formation so I added some 1 cost hex proof spells like Mizzium Skin and Dive Down. Also added Mimic Vat to exile Arcades if really needed and play him each turn, pretty dangerous but get's the job done :D Stealing some good enemy cards is also nice!
Would also add some win-con planeswalkers as this deck is king at keeping them alive.

In your maybeboard I like:
Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.
I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!
Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.
Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.
Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.
Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.
Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.
Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.
Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.
Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.
Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.
Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.
I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,
Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.
Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.
More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

Thanks! Aggro and Control are definitely things that you don't see together too often.
Aluren would be good, my walls have low cmc and come in powerful. I also wouldn't have to worry about completely running out of resources because of Arcades. Vizier of the Menagerie could help, I'll think about it.
I'm not really sure about Door of Destinies, Kindred Discovery, and Descendants' Path. With door I'm worried about boosting so much that I still die to my board wipes, I feel like I have enough card draw without Kindred Discovery, I also worry about burying spells I might need with Descendants' Path.
Archangel of Strife is a good idea, with "peace" mode my walls essentially get +3/+3. Angelic Skirmisher is good too; I can enable vigilance if I don't have it, or give my walls some other advantages.
Thanks for the suggestions! If you have any idea what cuts I could make to include from my maybe board then go ahead and suggest them.

Your deck looks pretty good for aggro-control.
Noetic Scales should be really strong since your creatures won't get bounced due to their low power and your card draw, while you totally disrupt opponents. Stoic Angel and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician can help you pursue a stax strategy.
Aluren is really powerful since most of your walls have low CMC, whereas you aren't worried about low CMC creatures your opponents might have.
Vizier of the Menagerie could help you cycle through your deck really fast.
