Aegis Angel

Creature — Angel

Flying (This creature can't be blocked except by creatures with flying or reach.)

When Aegis Angel enters the battlefield, another target permanent gains indestructible for as long as you control Aegis Angel. (Effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. A creature with indestructible can't be destroyed by damage.)

Aegis Angel and Sephara, Sky's Blade go together like peas and carrots.

Akroma, Vision of Ixidor stacks with each new combat.

Angelic Skirmisher likewise sees (and lends) a benefit with an extra combat step.

If you lean into extra combats then I would also suggest getting cards like World at War or Combat Celebrant.

Cards like Always Watching will allow for you to swing and still be able to block. Pair it with Angel's Trumpet to force combat and gobble up your opponent's creatures.

I also like True Conviction to keep your life total up during multiplayer games.

If you care to sneak a non-angel into the mix I like Archetype of Aggression for a trample enabler.

Saw that you were looking for help and this commander seems pretty cool. Not sure what your budget is, but I'm going to make some suggestions at different price points.

Here's some cards I'd cut: Angel's Grace, Cleric Class, Angelic Accord, Treasure Chest, The Book of Exalted Deeds, Panharmonicon, Arcane Signet, Marble Diamond, Campfire, Mass Calcify, Brave the Elements, Cleansing Nova, Everflowing Chalice, and Gift of Estates

I can provide more explanation on why, but generally these cards are low impact, less helpful than they may seem, or off theme a bit. Some of these are life gain or ETB payoffs but they don't have many ways to trigger them.

I'm seeing a wincon through combat with the deck as is. Giada is Ramp in the command zone but only for Angels, and the starting list only has 17 Angel spells. Turn 2 Giada and hitting all your land drops means we can send out 4 CMC angels turn 3.

I recommend Emeria Angel, Guardian Seraph, Angel of Condemnation

A lot of the Angel's are high CMC but you're running a lot of cost reducers. Due to this I think you need more lands and more Draw. Arch of Orazca, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Sea Gate Wreckage and War Room are all utility lands you can run in mono color that tap for colorless mana and help you draw.

That leaves seven more cards to add back in. I'd go with Karmic Guide, Twilight Shepherd, Battlegrace Angel, Angelic Sleuth, Herald of the Host, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, and Aegis Angel

Alright!

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.

Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.

Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.

Banisher Priest is good.

Blinding Souleater could easily be replaced by Law-Rune Enforcer, or, if you'd prefer an artifact creature, Burnished Hart is just better in general.

Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.

Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.

Consul's Shieldguard... see the Aegis Angel comments.

Court Street Denizen... see the Blinding Souleater comments, though this one is better so it's definitely worth keeping around if you want.

Drillworks Mole is a cool card. Basri Ket, Felidar Retreat, and Cathars' Crusade are good too.

Eldrazi Devastator is actually a card I used to run in my decks as a finisher. I would recommend something like Finale of Glory as an alternative that you can really sink your mana into.

Felidar Cub is nice, but War Priest of Thune is strictly better.

Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.

Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.

Inspiring Overseer and Knight of the White Orchid are good.

Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.

Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.

From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.

Toolcraft Exemplar is a really cool card that I have NEVER seen before. If it's working well for you, you should try out Serra Ascendant as well. It runs in a similar vein.

Welcoming Vampire is good too.

Celestial Flare could be replaced by Silence.

Dauntless Onslaught could be replaced by Charge, Bastion Protector, Benalish Marshal, Ethereal Guidance, Glorious Anthem, Guardians' Pledge, or Path of Bravery.

Divine Verdict could just be replaced by plain removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Conclave Tribunal, or Oblivion Ring.

Feat of Resistance is nice.

Gideon's Reproach - see Divine Verdict's feedback.

Gods Willing is good.

Kill Shot - see Divine Verdict's feedback. Actually, for the rest of these cards see that and Dauntless Onslaught's feedback.

Aligned Hedron Network is good.

Cloak of the Bat and Hero's Blade - see Dauntless Onslaught's feedback, but also Commander's Plate.

Spidersilk Net doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want another 0-mana artifact, look no further than Mishra's Bauble.

Font of Vigor - see previous comment

Siegecraft - Eldrazi Conscription is one of the best auras in the game, but Battle Mastery is nice too

Not Forgotten - Rest in Peace, Ashnod's Altar

Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned

Also consider Sphere of Safety.

I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Hey, good first attempt and decent budget version of Kaalia.

You have a few Angels/Demon/Dragons who are impactful when you cheat them onto the battlefield with Kaalia, but many could be improved to get more repeatable effects.

Some budget Angels/Demons/Dragons to consider adding:

  • Angel of Despair: destroy any permanent.
  • Emeria Shepherd: repeatable reanimate with Plains or recursion of nonland permanents with other lands.
  • Liesa, Forgotten Archangel: repeatable recursion of nontoken creatures you control that die and lifelink.
  • Sephara, Sky's Blade: protect Kaalia and all other flying creatures you control and lifelink. Pairs well with Aegis Angel to give Sephara indestructible to then have all flying creatures you control have this protection.
  • Bloodgift Demon: repeatable draw at your upkeep for the cost of only 1 life.
  • Steel Hellkite: repeatable destroy opponents nonland permanents.

On a low budget lands are last to think about, but there's a few more that are $2 or less to consider for some improvements:


Some changes to consider:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Might I suggest Mage Slayer. It's too fun to equip it to Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and hit for 10 to the face, another 10 if they don't have a flyer.

Also, I don't see Idyllic Tutor or Sterling Grove. Any reason why not seeing as they both can grab 25% of the deck.

Bastion Protector and Aegis Angel are fun ways to protect Jared Carthalion, True Heir.

Sigarda, Heron's Grace is sweet, as well as working in tangent creating ways to reuse Knight-Captain of Eos to help protect Monarch.

No Shielded by Faith? You are already running the other half of the combo in Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. Not to mention it also works well with Jared and Pariah pretty much making your life untouchable.

I run a similar deck to this, but focusing on getting out Sephara, Sky's Blade and then making her indestructible with Aegis Angel. It's a bit of a different take (and now I kind of want Watcher of Spheres or Stormscape Familiar in mine.) Skyblinder Staff is one of my favorite underrated tricks for flying decks. Makes your creatures unblockable except by reach. I play a lot of multiplayer casual, so my curve is a bit higher. It's here if you're interested: Sephara's Flock

Destroyerbirb thanks for the upvote and the comment!

I got the Boros BFZ Hero of Goma Fada deck as my first introduction. It’s not my all time favorite card (Aegis Angel was from my first booster back and has sentimental value) but holds a place in my heart.

Glad to see someone else got into the game around the same time! Hope you benefited from the primer!
