If you decide to go with defenders, which I know you mentioned there's Sylvan Caryatid which taps for any colour and has defender and Hexproof.

Any particular reason you are running Sylvan Caryatid over Arbor Elf if you are using utopia sprawl?

Your curve is really high and it seems like your first few counters on Animar will be slow going.

I'd suggest adding more 2-3 cmc mana dorks like Bloom Tender, Sylvan Caryatid, Rattleclaw Mystic, and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

I'd personally drop both Primordials, Zendikar Resurgent, Ulvenwald Hydra, Soul of New Phyrexia, and Tidespout Tyrant just as a starting point. I can understand the desire to fill your deck with fatties but you went way overboard imho.

Here's my decklist for any further ideas

Nissa, Steward of Elements makes this an illegal deck for EDH. All cards must match your Commander's color identity (in this case, Red/White/Green).

Other than that, you are going to want to find cards that give your creatures Trample, a la Nylea, God of the Hunt or even Overwhelming Stampede so you can more reliably get through to your opponents' life totals.

Legion's Initiative is also a great card for not only buffing your creatures, but also protecting your creatures from board wipes.

I also cannot help but notice that you are running a lot more lands than you probably need, as 36-38 is generally plenty. And given that you are running a lot of high CMC creatures, you could definitely use some more ramp cards like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Farseek, Birds of Paradise, and Sylvan Caryatid.

Yo, huge fan of Angel's here and I've got some recommendations for you.

I see that your deck is largely centered around lifegain as well, if that's the case there's no reason not to run Baneslayer Angel and her little sister Gisela, the Broken Blade. Big Angels with lifelink? Awesome! I can attest to the fact that Baneslayer is a beating and a half.

My next recommendation would be to run a second colour, namely green as Angels are expensive and green is the ramp colour. Things like Explore, Sylvan Caryatid, and Birds of Paradise both help you ramp early. Now the best payoff Angel if you're running green is Sigarda, Host of Herons. She is so much more powerful than her SoI counterpart and is really tough to kill. Resolve her early with any of the ramp I listed and your opponent is in for a nightmare.

Now there are many more Angels I can reccomend, so let's do just that.

If you can afford her, Linvala, Keeper of Silence really hoses down lots of strategies and her OGW counterpart Linvala, the Preserver can get you right back in a game you're losing.

Angel of Sanctions, Angel of Serenity, and Admonition Angel all have powerful Oblivion Ring style effects that clear blockers or threats for the rest of your team. Angel of Serenity in particular is a massive swing and will often win games on her own.

If you need recursion (and it's never a bad thing to have), Bruna, the Fading Light really surprised me with how good she is and wins the game almost instantly if you can meld her with Gisela.

Now, if you're doing this then you should for sure go up on lands, 23-24 would be fine and works for my Angel deck. Also, if you insist on being mono-white then Endless Horizons is a hysterical card that fixes the problem ofndrawing lands late game and gives you a steady supply of them.

If you want more ideas, check out my Angel deck, Whom God Loves. Have a nice one!

I picked Vine Trellis over Sylvan Caryatid because it is cheaper, and I only need green mana. The hexproof would be good, except it's not one of my main combo pieces, so I doubt it will be targeted much.

I like this deck alot, i've been thinking of building something similar recently. Why did you pick Vine Trellis over Sylvan Caryatid, just curious? I gotta think theres a better option for Scion of the Wild as well. Cheers
