I got you man. I hadn't really thought of it for this deck.
I guess I'm a little unsure which route I want to go. I am drawn to creature decks, see my Surrak deck.
I just want to build something that isn't just turning dudes sideways. Maybe this deck should remain midrange and I should focus the other aspirations on my Jaleva deck.

MegaMatt13, your list is really sweet too!
In an effort to keep my deck truly midrange. I think I not have the amount of pillowfort-type enchantments that both of your lists have. I am going to try and have my creatures do the work instead. I may have to stray from the theme a little to accomplish that.
I think you're right about Iona. I have only cast her 2x ever. It feels really good when she resolves though that's for sure. BUT.. 9 mana is a stupid amount.
I will make some changes to this either tonight or tomorrow.Please let me know what you dudes think!!
Thank you both again for the suggestions. This is exactly the reason I love tappedout.

Those are solid suggestions!!
I will check out your list.

Those are great suggestions. Thank you again. I hadn't even considered the Marauder and the Executioner. Fucking brilliant. I will work on those over the next couple days. I know I have marauder and some of the signets. Those alone should improve how the deck operates. The chromatic lanturn and the other one will have to wait a week or so. But I will highly prioritize them.

First of all, thank you for the upvote and taking the time to help with this.
To answer your questions:
Queen Marchesa gives me an early play in a deck where I have lots of top end flyers. She also is an easy way to have additional card draw (monarch). Plus deathtouch blockers. Kaalia is probably the better commander but the $35 price tag keeps me from picking her up. Its probably worth it but on the flip side.. I really do like Marchesa, she fits the secondary goal of the deck which is a hatebear/control strategy. Not exactly a "prison", "pillowfort" or "death and taxes" but similar (if that makes any sense). I want to control the board without having to just kill shit and blow stuff up. I would love to win without having it be just an all out brawl (I have Surrak for that). I would love for this deck to be more like that. I just already had the whole angel/demon thing going.
This started out as an orzhov deck with Obzedat, Ghost Council as the commander. The main reason I built it was because I didn't like white and wanted to force myself to play it. It soon became my favorite deck to play, then shifted towards angels/demons. I ended up adding red for primarily 4 cards Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Master of Cruelties, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, and Aurelia, the Warleader. They fit the theme and were too good to pass up.
I definitely want to keep the angel/demon theme intact but would love this deck to have more control to it. I have a hard time cutting stuff at this point. Everything is good, you know? When I saw your list I was like "Unholy fucking shit man this is disgusting! How do I implement something like this in my Mardu list?"
You bring up a good point on ramp. That is an area of the deck I have basically neglected. Thoughts on cuts in favor of the signets and other rocks (possibly even shit like Burnished Hart and Pilgrim's Eye)?

What an awesome decklist and write up!! +1 from me.
Would you please give some input on my queen marchesa deck (Hvis Lyset Tar Oss)? It's a midrange creature focused deck, but any advice is appreciated.

I really appreciate the input. I will definitely take that into account. Thanks again.

Thanks for suggestions dude-man.
As of right now I don't know if I will stick with dragons or not. I don't think its hurting the deck to have them. But on the flip side they take up space where better things would fit in... though I'm unsure what that will be.
You're right about needing more card draw, and more blue sources. That would definitely help keep things going.
What else would you recommend as far as more card draw is concerned?

Looking pretty good. I also have have a Surrak deck. You might find my list helpful.

Nope, but that is an awesome suggestion. Thank you!!

This deck-list looks weirdly familiar...

Since youre in white another card that is severely overlooked for recursion is Profound Journey. Its a lot of mana but it returns PERMENANTS, not just creatures. Plus rebound!! Sign me up!!
I sure do have a list for my Queen Marchessa deck. Check it out here: Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

Ravos, Soultender is nice in a deck where your graveyard matters.
I run it in my Queen Marchessa deck. I am alway happy to cast it. Does a lot of work.

Too many creatures. You need pump spells with infect so you can kill everyone fast and preferably at once.
Speaking of killing everyone at once. Look for cards with myriad. Blade of Selves comes to mind.
Darksteel Plate would be great here too.
