Maybe I am old-school with my Magics, but shouldn't Serra Angel and Voice of All be in here? I feel like they are some pretty key angels. Protection and Vigilance can be hard to deal with in most situations. Serra Avenger would be nice.
Maybe a Serra Avatar , too.

I don't think you can call this an Angel tribal deck if you don't play Seraph Sanctuary .
August 29, 2012 8:21 p.m.
Thanks for the suggestions everyone! It's helping a lot! I'm not gonna lie, I basically saw an angel - battlegrace, I think, and knew I had to have an angel deck. It's missing quite a few angels, some due to color constraints, others due to lack of space. I DID have serra angel in here, believe me, but she got edged out as more cards got added. I am adding a Seraph Sanctuary - I can't believe I didn't even think of that, haha!
I'm glad this deck is getting some help. I'll be honest, at home I play against a cancel/draw U/G MONSTER of a deck that never lets me do anything, let alone win. Do you guys have any ideas for white counter? Or ways to protect some of my permanents? So far I've gone with alot of return from the graveyard, thus Reya as my General. I usually play Linvala or Akroma.
August 30, 2012 10:12 p.m.
Silence and cavern of souls may be able to protect your stuff Idk though I don't play edh
August 30, 2012 10:34 p.m.
Take out your war priest and instead put in Return to Dust
August 30, 2012 11:37 p.m.
i'm a big fan of Disenchant because it's a sorcery, but in EDH games, i think that exiling stuff helps out more. recursion is easy in EDH. So i would recommend Revoke Existence instead. love the deck man. +1
August 30, 2012 11:45 p.m.
Also Caged Sun Gauntlet of Power and Extraplanar Lens are basic staples for any mono colored EDH see if you cant find anything like my Infernal Darkness from my om nom nom deck i would have linked it but it keeps going to some stupid mono green deck and not my edh :P
August 30, 2012 11:45 p.m.
Im sorry that i keep commenting but everytime i hit post i think of other cards for this deck, this is the last one for awhile i swear... and this is a nifty combo i love to pull in my scion deck. Final Judgment + Ghostway
August 30, 2012 11:52 p.m.
+1 for the deck, my man. Have you considered Moonsilver Spear though?
August 31, 2012 12:25 a.m.
This deck looks awesome! I love the angel tribe myself and there are definitely some unique cards that go well with it in an EDH format. Some such cards are Magus of the Moat , Moat , Peacekeeper and Ghostly Prison , which are great for slowing down opponents while you build up.
Enchantments like Concerted Effort , Light from Within , and Honor of the Pure (which I would replace Crusade with, so as not to give any opponent's white creatures +1/+1) are excellent for creature buffs. Angelic Renewal , Brave the Elements , Rebuff the Wicked , Holy Day , Silence , Story Circle , card:Martyr's Bond, Swords to Plowshares , Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots and Flickering Ward are also excellent for security. Also consider a kicked card:Marshal's Anthem.
Non-aura enchantments are generally excellent for helping to set up in the early turns of the game while you get your more expensive angels out later.
I would also recommend upping your land count to 36 or 38 for better mana consistency (especially considering the mana cost of some of your cards). Some useful (and inexpensive) lands you could add: Eiganjo Castle , Flagstones of Trokair , Forbidding Watchtower , Secluded Steppe and Sejiri Steppe .
Otherwise this is looking awesome! +1

Have you thought about picking up a copy of Twilight Shepherd ? That card is awesome when any sweeper is played. Basically lets you keep all your stuff around while everyone else looses theirs. And if you put in a flicker effect like Ghostway then you can reset her -1/-1 counter and use her again later. Also if you want to play more angels consider running a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck to get all of those awesome R/W angels, or Jenara, Asura of War to run some of the Bant angels and those two new awesome angels Bruna, Light of Alabaster and Sigarda, Host of Herons . Finally check out my deck Angelic Armada, it is an all angel Kaalia deck that is super fun to play.

you gotta watch how much life you attempt to gain at one time, False Cure could really mess you up
January 9, 2013 2:56 p.m.
is it ok if i use Avacyn as a commander because she is cheaper full art?
August 22, 2014 10:42 p.m.
Regular Tithe is fantastic as well, 2 plains at instant speed for 1w is great
June 21, 2015 5:17 p.m.
I don't know of anything specific to suggest to you and I honestly would love to help. I have my Avacyn, Angel of Hope deck still in the works if you would like to browse that listing on here.
I will say i definitely will be putting Belbe's Portal in my deck now. I never knew that was a thing. Being able to drop Iona for 3 instead of 9 would be AMAZING!
Forgive me since I don't know how to code the card names into the comment.
Personally I'm running Nevinyrral's Disk vs Magus of the Disk. Same effect just with an artifact.
I'm also running a Whispersilk Cloak just so no one can block the Worldslayer.
Also, Since you're running this much life gain I would HIGHLY suggest Serra Avatar. Its a 7 drop that's essentially Ajani Goldmane's Ult ability. And if it gets milled it shuffles back into your library.
Shepherd of Emeria from the new set is pretty cool as well. Landfall for reanimate.
You get a +1 from me and I'll be watching this just so i can see what other ideas you might come up with.
January 21, 2016 11:19 a.m.
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is pretty nice in mono-colored decks. You can pay 2 and call white, and an amount of mana is added equal to your devotion. I'd also suggest Weathered Wayfarer. Pilgrim's Kite feels slow, but it's saved me plenty in the past. Finally, Gift of Estates can catch you up with a player on land count if you're behind. Burnished Hart is good, too, especially if you can recur it every turn. In addition, Ashnod's Altar can turn your creatures into 2 colorless a pop. Hope that helps your mana situation buddy!
January 28, 2016 12:27 p.m.
Awesome! +1 Most of the good suggestions I think are already made, but just for grins... Call To Serve :D

Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant in an opening hand is great. Also, Concerted Effort is a great card to drop flying on everything you have, as well putting protection across the board with say, Etched Champion.
Another fun filled card of adventure for an angel tribal, Emeria Shepherd. I run a 5 color EDH semi angel tribal but it's around 50% white. I'd drop platinum angel though. Nicol Bolas Planes Walker, mind slaver, mind control....just too risky, especially with a lack of murder spells. Even creature removal is too happen stance against it. But that's my stance. Lol experienced it. Thought I had the win and a control swap stopped that real fast...

You already have Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal, meet Cryptic Gateway it so strong, and don't consume mana. Check out My Deck, it's fast (for an angel deck) and might give you some ideas to build up speed in your deck
August 27, 2016 12:47 p.m.
Great deck! I have one that's similar although I can't afford to buy Avacyn yet to keep my stuff alive so I just reset the game most times with my board wipes. I am looking into some flicker stuff too. Check my deck out! Commander of Angels.
+1 from me!

Nice deck. I'd recommend Sword of the Animist as a nice ramp card for it.

If you are playing mono white I really recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Myriad Landscape is also a good filter/ramp. I also would recommend to run an Angel of Serenity, she has good devotion for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and can get your angels back from the grave.
I also find Skullclamp really useful to ensure card draw since you say you are target no*1 after you've played some cards, better get some profit from your creatures dying.Hall of the Bandit Lord can also speed up your deck a bit, using the ability on Adarkar Valkyrie gives big value. Your deck could also really use a Grand Abolisher, he makes sure that you can do your thing during your turn and he is a good target for removal cause people hate him. This enlarges the chance of your angels sticking in the late game.
One angel I really love is Archangel of Tithes, she has such an huge effect for 4 mana and again good devotion. I would recommend to switch out Angelic Overseer, you don't run that many humans and she only really shines trough in human tribal decks.
If you're interested, here's my take on angels combined with humans: Odric, the Worldslayer
I really like the deck, mono white ftw!! +
