Trespasser's Curse Discussion
3 weeks ago
You said in your thread in the deck help forum that you wanted to get it down to 66, so that is 18 cuts.
Trespasser's Curse - Curses feel unnecessarily antagonistic and this one doesn't do much.
Curator's Ward - Unlikely to ever draw you cards.
Ashes of the Abhorrent - Not good unless your meta is very graveyard heavy.
Prowler's Helm - Not a very good piece of evasion equipment.
Wing Shards - Bad except against voltron.
Nightmare's Thirst - Hardly ever going to kill anything of importance.
Mana Leak - The type of games you are likely to play with this deck tax counters won't matter.
Convolute - See above.
Healing Grace - 1 shot small amounts of lifegain aren't worth a card slot.
Dark Ritual - Rituals aren't great in commander unless it is to ramp directly into a victory and you have no insta-wins.
Vampire Sovereign - ETB doesn't justify paying the price for the body in a non-blink deck.
Angel of the God-Pharaoh - 6 mana 4/4 isn't worth it just because it has cycling.
Diamond Mare - Going to gain you much less life than you think it will.
Underworld Coinsmith - Effects aren't strong enough.
Bonus round, these cards are all relatively weak and I really think that maybe you wanted angel tribal and didn't want to say it was a tribal deck.

In general, my feedback is that you have too many one-shot lifegain effects for small amounts (1-3 life). These don't do enough - you have to have multiple other cards on board before they really help you/hurt others.
Cards to cut:
- Angel of Mercy - Angel of the Dawn - Angel of the God-Pharaoh - Seraph of the Suns - Serra Angel - Urgoros, the Empty One - Vampire Sovereign - Dark Ritual - Healing Grace - Fountain of Renewal - Manalith - Prowler's Helm - Behind the Scenes - Ill-Gotten Inheritance - Trespasser's Curse - Dovin Baan
A few cards to think about adding:
Last, I'll just note that Oloro is already not a beloved commander, and you're playing a lot of counter magic. You might want to think about inserting some W/U pillowfort, cause everyone is going to be coming for you.

Trespasser's Curse is going to make you the target for the token player.

It's looking great...maybe you can find room for Trespasser's Curse ? I would main board Kingpin's Pet for more extort plus it's another flyer. Consider Pillory of the Sleepless to nerf a big threat and add to the loss-of-life effects.
on Need rats?

If i was going to to tune this for FNM I would play 4 Pack Rat some number of relentless rat 4 Typhoid Rats 4 Aether Vial and then the rest just needs to be hand disruption ( Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek ) and removal ( Fatal Push , Doom Blade , Dismember , ect.) I would't use any of the extra cards that you have ( The Rack , Bontu's Monument , Trespasser's Curse ) or anything over 3 mana. Modern is a brutally fast format, most decks can kill turn 3 and everything else can kill turn 4. You unfortunately cannot, so you need to be as efficient at disruption as possible. I also wouldnt use Bojuka Bog or Thespian's Stage . I would replace it with 3 Field of Ruin and swamps
also you deck is under standard so I can't suggest any of these. Good Luck!!

no offense but theres a lot of mistakes here. first of all, 20 lands is definitely too few if you want to cast stuff with cmc 5 or more. a mana cost of 5 is considered very expensive in modern, and anything costing 5+ is almost always mana-ramped into.
since you have no discard effects, theres no point to The Rack . what are you hoping to copy with Thespian's Stage ? cards like Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni and Trespasser's Curse that require your opponent to use certain types of cards, are too situational to mainboard. instead of running 1 or 2 of a bunch of stuff, pick the best ones and run 4
modern is a brutal format. a deck generally needs to be able to win on turn 4, or pack a ton of early interaction to stop an opponent. decks like burn, infect, storm, and grishoalbrand can win on turn 4, or even turn 3. tron plays a turn 3 Karn Liberated then a turn 4 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon . a player can even turn 3 Through the Breach into Emrakul, the Aeons Torn .
this decks best case scenario is the following:
T1: land, Aether Vial
T2: land, Pack Rat
T4: probably no land drop this turn since you only run 20. so vial in a 2nd Relentless Rats and cast the 3rd.
this empties your hand if you're on the play, gives no interaction with the opponent, and leaves you hoping/praying the opponent cant kill your rats.

Oh, also, if you add in Ajani's Welcome you can trigger that gain when you cast a new creature... pair it with Authority of the Consuls or Trespasser's Curse and you are gaining life ANYTIME a creature enters the battlefield.

The main deck looks better, I'd be tempted to add another sacrifice outlet Viscera Seer, probably just as a 2x, replacing Drana's Emissary.
Your sideboard, needs some work, possibly:
4x Invoke the Divine --> Anguished Unmaking (you have plenty of life gain)
