Wall of Omens Discussion

@ojmandias What I've been mulling over in my head for how I'm going to organize the deck when I can afford transition into a Bitterblossom build. My initial plan is the four Raise the Alarm's I currently run will become three Bitterblossom and a Secure the Wastes. As for the two spots occupied by the Wall of Omens, Those are lining up to be the first two major slots that cards will be swapping from main to sideboard. As for running creatures in those slots, I expect I'll likely rotate between Auriok Champion and Selfless Spirit depending on what's popular in my local meta.
That said, I think rotating Blessed Alliance to the main is possible as a replacement for the walls.

I really like the idea of this deck since i am building a kindly similiar deck.
Why no Wall of Omens

@DarkEclipse18 In modern, the game is decided by turn 5-6 at the LATEST. Infect can kill you by turn-2 or Bogles can get a 15+ power creature with hexproof, trample, lifelink, and first strike by turn-3. That doesn't even take into account affinity or Death's Shadow lists, which are the current top two decks in modern. I can guarantee that if you took this current deck to a modern event, it wouldn't take a single game over the course of the night. I know that I sound a bit rough, but my point is that this isn't a modern deck; it's casual.
Admonition Angel/Angel of Serenity are overcosted and inefficient. By the time you get one out, your opponent's threats will have already had upwards of three turns to pressure your board. By that point it's not even worth it to remove them, since you're most likely dead.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope: Indestructible doesn't really do much for you. Sure, it's going to prevent boardwipes, but by that time they're more than likely going to Path to Exile your Avacyn and wipe the board anyway. It's not worth the mana to cast a creature that doesn't immediately impact the board.
Iona, Shield of Emeria: This is the ONE angel in your deck that's worth running. It DOES impact the board upon entry and could be cheated out via Descendants' Path as early as turn-4! Your ramp package will need to be drastically altered, however. It doesn't do ANYTHING the turn you play it, giving your opponent a lot more time to improve their board unabated.

4x Flex Spots

You are welcome. Another card that comes to mind is Primeval Titan. And if i was to remove a card from your list, i would cut 4x Elvish Piper, since the only creature you have worth cheating is Avenger of Zendikar, and in a deck with so much ramp like this one, i think it isnt worth it. The piper, for max potential of its use, is usually paired with creatures that have really high cmc cost (Emrakul) or some difficult conditions to cast them (progenitus). So, while it can still be used here, i think you are wasting its potential and taking away efficiency from this deck.
Also, Congregation at Dawn is usually played in combo decks, which have a winning condition on the spot if they get the cards they need. Yours is more of a synergy deck, without any immediate wincon. So you may switch it for a card that actually gives you card advantage, and not just arrange you topdeck. For example, Wall of Omens or Harmonize.
It just occured to me that you could go the Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and either Ajani, Mentor of Heroes or Ajani Unyielding path and support them with Oath of Ajani. Not only it helps you ramp to play your PWs (though nissa is already cheap), but it also synergyzes well with your tokens. And there is a really nice endgame confunction between nissa's and ajani unyielding's ultimates, letting you take total control of the lategame by refilling your life and giving you a lot of card advantage.
If you have the money, Path to Exile will always be better than Angelic Purge. If you face against enchantments and artifacts, green and white are the best colors to get rid of them. So just add a sideboard card to you main board on game 2. PTE can also be used on one of your own creatures to get you another landfall (i can't think of a situtation where you would chose that, but it is an option nevertheless).
One last thought. If you want to emphazise even more on landfall, you could try cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder or Viridian Emissary/Primal Druid. And ofc, the opus magnum of landfall is Lotus Cobra, but it is a bit expensive.

The deck just performs overall badly. I haven't won a game against a legitimate Modern deck, and I can't seem to win against many of the fringe ones either. Maybe I'm shuffling badly?
