You could use some Land like Ghost Quarter if you play again tron or scapeshift valakut. I play these Colors a lot and i find Gavony Township and/or Vault of the Archangel pretty amazing!

Awesome BlackWitch, glad that it's working.

Griselbrand is my favorite Demons as well, it's awesome that he is not on the Duel Commander Banlist. Unfortunately for me he's on the Banlist. Just watch out for Mindslaver.

Vault of the Archangel is awesome, I found I wasn't utilizing it that often, 1 out of every 3 or 4 games, plus it slowed me down through turns 1 through 6. Once Kaalia of the Vast is on the field, you always have your mana untapped, which is why I like Restoration Angel and Archangel Avacyn  Flip (I know she kills Kaalia of the Vast too but usually flips the same turn that Kaalia of the Vast is indestructible anyway. Boros Charm too.

Your Kaalia of the Vast is a beast, people must not like coming up against you.

Hi Spirits

I just wanted to tell you, that this little bit of lifelink works just great in my deck. It helps me survive all the aggro crap of my opponents, till I can cast Kaalia of the Vast or attack with her safely.

Archangel of Thune not only gives me sustain, but also helps me much with keeping Kaalia of the Vast safe onto the battlefield from spells like Shock, Lightning Bolt or Umezawa's Jitte etc, which are real pain. It's a shame that I have never thought of this card earlier. I was convinced that it works only in decs with life gain.

And what is new. Now I find Griselbrand one of my favourite creatures. I was afraid of his high CMC but realized that Kaalia of the Vast is the best way to sneak him in ! Now he is all I need. Some lifegain and optional draw if needed. Better than Whip of Erebos

Vault of the Archangel also helps me a lot. Used to think that this 5CMC is a bit to much, but once I have Kaalia onto the battlefield I don't care about mana that much, so I can use it to activate this ability.

You're in the colors for Iroas, God of Victory, potentially an upgrade to Dolmen Gate.

Also seems like Chandra, Flamecaller could be a strong include - makes six power with haste or gives you a net positive wheel (for discarding creatures). Additionally, she's has a soft boardwipe.

Vault of the Archangel is a bomb in decks like this. Brutal Hordechief is an option, but is a dubious include because it looks like you're not trying to truly flood the board, which is where he shines. Also Sengir Autocrat is probably going to go into my Marchesa deck soon.

Shard Convergence- worth it? maybe a Cultivate instead

Darksteel Ingot swap with Chromatic Lantern or Coalition Relic

Lands could use a big update, and it dosen't need to be expensiveall the taplands (guildgates and gain 1 life lands) could be replaced with the tri lands from alara blockArcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Jungle Shrine, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel, and Exotic OrchardReflecting Pool is a better Rupture Spireyou could throw in a couple colorless utility lands and have you filter lands color fix you when needed. maybe add Vault of the Archangel, Reliquary Tower, Temple of the False God, Winding Canyons

Lurking Predators and Munda, Ambush Leader seem like best friends!

Captain's Claws makes ally tokens

Jwari Shapeshifter is the clone you want!

creatures that don't seem strong enoughGoblin Freerunner, Drana's Chosen, Drana's Emissary, Jori En, Ruin Diver (Not even an ally!), Zulaport Chainmage,

ally's you could addAkoum Battlesinger, Bala Ged Thief, Bojuka Brigand, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Grovetender Druids, Hada Freeblade, Halimar Excavator, Harabaz Druid, Highland Berserker, Kalastria Healer, Kor Entanglers, Makindi Patrol (change for Joraga Bard), Murasa Pyromancer, Oran-Rief Survivalist, Reckless Bushwhacker, Tuktuk Scrapper

Hey, I have a few suggestions. I recommend cutting: Vault of the Archangel, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, and Orzhova, the Church of Deals. Vault seems very mana intensive, I could see it's uses, but I feel it could be switched out. I suggest cutting the gearhulk, because a lot of the time your standard board wipes should get the job done. Also, sacrificing all your artifact ramp feels bad. If you are running it to stomp on artifact/enchantment heavy decks in your meta, add in Austere Command if it's not already in the list. Maybe even replace it with a Toxic Deluge! With all that life you have, you can take out any indestructible monster heading your way. In regards to the other land, as stated previously, I feel there are better utility lands, and would rather see a Wasteland or Strip Mine in that slot. Now for the super spicy and spiky recommendations. Since you are already running Vizkopa Guildmage, you should add in Children of Korlis, ad nauseum, and Angel's Grace. These cards together can win you the game on the spot, and also can be used to save you in a pinch if you're not going for the combo. You should check them out. I hope everything works out well for you, and I hope some of these suggestions might pique your interest. Thanks for posting the deck, mate! +1 from me.

Try and keep it at 60 cards to maximize your chances at good draws. I would move Scrabbling Claws, Kataki, War's Wage, and Sundering Growth into the SB. That'll put you at 58 MB. You definitely need basic lands so I'm trying to make room for 8-9 of them.

-2 Guardians' Pledge (Zealous Persecution basically has the same effect but not as mana intensive.)

-2 Doom Blade (Your other removal is just better. This seems excessive unless you see a lot of aggro.)

-4 Tidehollow Sculler (You've got a decent amount of hand disruption still without it and this is the weakest of your hand hate. Seems like you've got plenty going on on that point of the mana curve anyways.)

That gives room for 10 basics or 9 and another Vault of the Archangel.

Also, if you find yourself with dead cards/draws often, I would consider swapping a couple of Dismembers for Night's Whisper to help get you through your deck.

I've tested for several times and found that you are right. Sorin is good and I could change Vault of the Archangel into Overgrown Tomb.
