The deck's simple enough, my own attempt at angel tribal. Main aim is to get out a Semblance Anvil or two, imprinted with a creature - Porcelain Legionnaire for preference, to get further anvils out cheaper. Deck is for a fairly slow, heavily multiplayer metagame.
UPDATE: -4 Plains, +4 Emeria, the Sky Ruin -2 Infiltration Lens, +2 Strata Scythe
So, with the advent of Avacyn Restored, there's quite a few cards that could improve this deck, to such a degree that this is no longer particularly budget - I'll be building this (admittedly slowly) with an eye on competitive play. I'm guessing it won't do hugely well, but for a tribal deck it should be reasonably strong.
Cards in: Baneslayer Angel (as it's no longer budget), Restoration Angel (a flashing angel for 1? Yes please) and Herald of War - forces my opponents to answer it, leaving my bigger hitters to push through.
Cards out (roughly): Shepherd of the Lost - as much as I want it in, it's not worth it the cost compared to other angels (which in itself is quite sad).
Emeria, The Sky Ruin would be awesome in this deck...
There's an equipment in Scars of Mirrodin, Strata Scythe that would also be killer here...

+4 Serra Avenger!!!
Also, I think you should have more removal in the deck in order to buy some time. Try -2 Serra Angel, -2 Infiltration Lens (with flying it gets harder to be blocked) and +2 Journey to Nowhere and +2 Oblivion Ring.
Best of luck! ;)

aeonstoremyliver: I like both those cards, and am not too worried about the conflict between less plains, and the scythe - even if I only have 20 plains in the deck, that could still lead to a sizeable boost. Cheers.
Deck_Master: If I could ever afford it, Serra Avenger would be in there in a flash, even though it has no synergy with the anvil ;) Unfortunately, I already have 4x Oblivion Ring, but if I need more removal, Journey to Nowhere will be my first port of call. Thanks
