Thalia's Lancers Discussion
5 days ago
I must have overlooked Thalia.
Kambal is sweet. I would highly recommend it.
Thalia's Lancers is another good cheap card that could fit here. The tutor effect is really nice on an already decent creature.
Ravos, Soultender is also excellent. But if you're trying to stay at a certain budget I get that.

I like the deck, but I'm worried about inconsistency with all the 1-ofs. Is that for financial reasons? If you have good finances, I'd recommend at least doubling up on some of the cards you think are better and eliminating others. For example, having one Negate is unlikely to be helpful because when they play the noncreature spell you don't want them to play (like Aetherworks Marvel), you won't be ready.
Here are some of the ones I'd recommend eliminating: Thalia's Lancers (even though I love this card), Dovin Baan (and doubling up on Tamiyo, Field Researcher), Censor (and giving those to Negate), Archangel Avacyn Flip (and adding one to Selfless Spirit... your deck is expensive so I can't imagine you will ever have 5 mana open for this), and I'd also move Blessed Alliance into Immolating Glare (if a lot of your meta is aggro at your local game store).
Just some thoughts! I really like the deck! +1

Since you have plenty of mana ramp, it might be worth adding another Emeria, The Sky Ruin to ensure that you can take advantage of resurrection, or some Weathered Wayfarer to fetch. Having a couple 1-drops couldn't hurt!
Considering the number of legendary angels you're running, I highly recommend adding Avacyn, Angel of Hope. She's a win-con all on her own and can seriously mess with your opponents.
While keeping the casual nature of the deck in mind, it has a lot of inconsistencies. It might be worth cutting some non-legendaries to make play-sets of other non-legendaries.
Finally, Wall of Omens can easily replace Angelic Wall. You have plenty of flying blockers and the card draw is nice, especially if you pair it with some utility flicker like Cloudshift. Cloudshift (or Restoration Angel, keeping in mind angel ineligibility) also has great synergy with Knight of the White Orchid, Angel of Serenity, Hixus, Prison Warden, Sunblast Angel, and Thalia's Lancers.

The only cuts I can see would be darksteel ignot and archetype of endurance... and even then idk. They're not bad.
Archetype is just a lot of mana and the hexproof doesn't save your board from mass removal. Targeted removal won't slow you down that much anyway. Ingot is just ok, its good fixing and indestructible is nice but meh..
Karmic Guide, Eternal Witness and Thalia's Lancers. Good to have a way to resurrect dudes from the graveyard and thalias lancers great for tutoring up legendy creatures. Plus its a 4/4 first strike anyway.

Hey thanks for reading
Really cool that this deck inspired yours :D I sticked to my devotion plan from the beginning. I tested the ramp with Extraplanar Lens instead of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx but i cannot fetch for it that easy like a Nykthos with Weathered Wayfarer.This deck is all about consistency, so everything that i need is at least a "6x" of in the deck. I also tested Endless Horizons. The problem here was the 1-devotion ramp and the zero boardinpact after entering the battlefield. An artifact removal could also kill nearly my entire mana base then. Forbidding Watchtower is a nice idea, but to trigger Emeria, The Sky Ruin more consistent, i stick to Basic Lands as much as possible. (Makes it even harder for common hate cards in modern like Blood Moon). I also tested Cloudshift: The pay-of was too small, with a Wall of Omens it's 1mana=draw 1card.With Thalia's Lancers it was more or less => Cloudshift=Any legendary card in the library.Cast Out is really good as a permanent removal, which i need but it's not really productive to the devotion plan. It has to be at least or even
The Modern format is a formate of hate. Hate to lock your opponent. There are many many forms of enchantment hate Back to Nature. This deck is barely hateable while spreading out cardhate like Nevermore,Runed Halo, etc

Also in regards to Celestial Mantle, it may be a bit taxing on the curve but its a great card, if you find it useful then go for it, or else it can be removed to make the deck more focused and consistent. Student of Warfare is a card I love so my heart says keep it, I would almost recommend dropping the Thalia's Lancers instead seeing how it is high on your curve and is, in my opinion, an overrated card.
And a suggestion I forgot to make earlier is Seraph Sanctuary for the mana base, it helps with angels.
