Description

Looking over how many Avacyn angel of hope decks are constructed it appears too many rely on her being castable at all times. Simple truth is some decks fall short of being strong enough to play without her. So this is my take on it. A token generating monowhite ramp with artifacts to make up for the weaknesses of white. With this construction Avacyn can show up as early as turn 4, and the token generation is a strength of white so fears of an overwhelming army can take the focus nicely away from Avacyn and potential boardwipes. It doesn't take alot to make an effective avacyn deck but it does take some thought to make one amazing.

I think your land base needs a lot of improvement. I would recommend going full tilt on the Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Enlightened Tutor plan.

Notes: Recommend adding Caged Sun to improve consistency of the plan.

As i'm sure you know Snow-Covered Plains are extremely useful with Extraplanar Lens's global effect turning off the competitions normal Plains. I love Expedition Map and Weathered Wayfarer in the deck but I would recommend only using extremely high impact lands to go fetch with it. Try not to dilute your speed/ramp.

I would take out all non basics except Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Homeward Path (Only if your meta has creature stealing), Kor Haven, Strip Mine, (Only if your meta is colour greedy and you can mana screw ppl eg. Kaalia of the Vast) and Buried Ruin. Obviously replace with extra snow lands.

I would recommend Scrying Sheets (insane card advantage).

Notes: Most ppl recommend 38 lands for EDH deck with normal CMC commanders. You might want to add 1-2 extra snow lands.

If you are happy with my feedback I could take a closer look at the rest of the deck. Cheers.

Livenoevil I would like you to play test this deck 15 times, use any deck you like to compare against it. This deck has been dominating in its random games against random players for quite some time as it is. I've found Caged Sun to be difficult to fit into the deck without losing key cards to help against opponent disruption. And each card has helped to improve the decks card flow and remain very consistant. The only card you suggested that I could consider is Myriad Landscape due to its ability to thin out the deck and put mana on my field. Great suggestions and thank you.
