Vanquisher's Banner Discussion
4 days ago
Your average cmc is over 4, thats really high. I would recommend cutting 6 high cmc creatures for Talisman of Conviction Boros Signet Arcane Signet Boros Locket Fire Diamond Marble Diamond locket is bad but the 2 cards can help later in a pinch. Also try to find some lower cmc spells to swap for some fatties Maybe include Speaker of the Heavens and Bishop of Wings or other angel relevant clerics. Do you have a meta that supplies enough time for Burnished Hart ? I find it to be incredibly clunky, its 2 turns to play 2 extra lands. I would just add Myriad Landscape to the mana base and swap the burnished hart for Knight of the White Orchid Legion's Initiative can protect your team from a wipe. Leaving mana open is hard in Boros, but losing creatures with limited card draw is very bad. Eerie Interlude and Unbreakable Formation or Teferi's Protection can also protect the team if there is a board wipe. And now the important part. Herald's Horn and Vanquisher's Banner since your tribal red has wheels and impulse draw like Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel there's Mazemind Tome 4 scrys for 2 mana is a fair rate and if you need cards or have the mana open go ahead and draw. Stolen Strategy Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Rogue's Gloves Chandra, Torch of Defiance Mask of Memory can all get you cards just off the top of my head but Im sure scryfall or looking through some other gisela decks will render many more options as well. Cheers good luck with your Angels!

AceofRoses This deck works very well for me in my play group. I just updated the deck this evening to reflect some changes that I have made. As far as the comment about running the deck with out certain cards my opinions are as follows. Blood Moon is most definitely a luxury for a budget builds, before I shelled out for it I used the much more reasonable Blood Sun. Coat of Arms is another more luxury pick as well while the anthem buff is nice it is not a critical addition. Same with Door of Destinies they can easily be replaced with other selections. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is really amazing in this deck for his goading ability and his exile ability however, again for a budget build this could be swapped out with a more budget friendly goblin card. Helm of the Host This is where we start getting into some serious territory lol, Helm is such a great card in this deck, making copies of Krenko, Mob Boss that stick around, because they aren't legendary make this deck go bananas, as well as those copies having haste, NUTS!!!. In all seriousness this is one of those cards I would look at splurging on... Purphoros, God of the Forge is an amazing way to ping down all enemies so quickly and is indestructable. This is another one that I would advise trying to find a way to squeeze in, my deck goes off way more frequently after adding him than it ever did before him. Thornbite Staff is an easy combo piece and something that is not necessary but gives you more options for winning, and if you aren't planning on going the combo route then it isn't as big of a deal. Thousand-Year Elixir is another haste enabler for Krenko, Mob Boss as well as a combo piece but can be subbed out for another haste enabler that is more budget friendly. Finally Vanquisher's Banner is a great card in any tribal deck but again not strictly necessary in a this build, to be honest it is on my list of possible cards to cut when I acquire more combo pieces for this deck.

Hey, nice start, mono white can be tricky to build and play in Commander. You have Avacyn, Angel of Hope, make her the Commander? This is Angel tribal, but using Elesh Norn as Commander is strange...
No matter the Commander with Angel tribal Angels take up most, if not all, the high CMC spots in the deck because the best Angels have high CMCs. My advice is cut the majority of the other nonAngel high CMC (5 CMC or higher) cards. Ramp and Angels should be priority.
Cards to consider cutting right away because they're not as good as other cards or are redundancy you don't need:
- Beacon of Immortality
- Parhelion II
- Akroma, Angel of Wrath
- Bruna, the Fading Light
- Mass Calcify
- Serra's Guardian
- Seraph of the Sword
- Segovian Angel
- Curse of Exhaustion
- Moonsilver Spear
- Answered Prayers
- Serra Avenger
- Angelic Chorus
- Ajani, Wise Counselor
- Guardian of the Gateless
- Angelic Skirmisher
- Rhox Faithmender
- Vanquisher's Banner
This is 20 cards that doing a quick look over are subpar compared to the rest. The next 10 cards are cut to streamline by choosing the most important cards at different CMCs and cutting the others. Cards to consider cutting:
- Resolute Archangel
- Angel of Vitality
- Gisela, the Broken Blade
- Blinding Angel
- Linvala, the Preserver
- Platinum Angel
- Serra the Benevolent
- Cleansing Nova
- Angelic Accord
- Treasure Map Flip
The last four cards is where it gets difficult to make cuts, but continue to streamline:
Hopefully this info helps and I offer more advice especially if you change to Avacyn, Angel of Hope as Commander since there's several good interactions to take advantage of.
Good luck with your deck.

Love it! +1
Have you considered including some Vanquisher's Banners along with those Coat of Arms? Same cost to cast but especially in a strong tribal theme deck like this, that's an awful lot of card draw (card advantage).
That's about the only criticism I can see, that it looks like it plays out pretty quickly and then has no way of overcoming Topdecking afterward (except for that single copy of Moldervine Reclamation. A couple more of those wouldn't be the worst thing in the world either should you not want to drop cash on Vanquisher's Banners. Same casting cost but with color requirements, and no +1/+1 lord effect to help beef up your Rats simultaneously.
Fun-looking deck either way though!

2 mana for 1 Card Draw is not bad at all for Green, but unless you've got a way to return and/or recur Elvish Visionary in some way, it's not a massive benefit. I'm much more a fan of things like Vanquisher's Banner, Sylvan Messenger, and/or Regal Force since in each case you're dealing with more than 1 single draw (which especially if you're having reliability issues already; is just a roll of the dice).
I would definitely recommend factoring in 4x Priest of Titania. They're a little pricier than I normally like to purchase singles at, but it's not like they're ridiculous either (common rarity helps). There is simply no better (or cheaper dollar-wise) way to generate mana early-on in Elf Decks unless you're prepared to drop 50-100 dollars per single on something(s) ridiculous.
It looks like Ambush Commander could find a nice home here since you appear to use actual Lands more than my Elf build does. He'd add some additional synergy to the Elvish Pioneer/Sylvan Advocate theme you've focused on.
I can't seem to find a single Elf Deck that wouldn't benefit from Vitalize. It's instant speed, cheap cost, and just combos beautifully with so many different Elf Abilities.
I definitely feel that all 4 of your Overrun can be replaced with something better. Between both the mana cost as well as an identical (repeatable) ability on Ezuri, Renegade Leader, there's far better options here. Even something like Wirewood Pride could be a decent replacement...not only is it instant-speed to be used on either offense or defense, but its low cost means you can land early attacks in faster (I prefer to play it after blockers have already been declared and they've let some seemingly worthless 1/1 through).
I don't see a reason to use Druid's Deliverance here at all...not ton of Token generation going on here except from the 4x Elvish Promenade...and even then you're only paying 1 mana to Populate a 1/1 token. If you had better Tokens you could use Populate on, that'd be one thing but since it doesn't work on Non-Token creatures I think you could just as easily use Fog or something similar to save yourself a mana to cast.
