RambIe I added Aetherflux Reservoir and Angel of Destiny for more wincon and a few other cards lifegain and pay life in there. I think I am pretty happy with where the deck is at.

Cool deck. I've been interested in building Oloro and I like the direction you took it. I guess the creature spots are pretty tight since they all have to be big impact. Thoughts on Cosmos Elixir , Vault of Champions , Sea of Clouds , Morphic Pool , Angel of Destiny , Hullbreacher , Opposition Agent , Venser's Journal , Approach of the Second Sun , Soul's Attendant , Speaker of the Heavens , Drannith Magistrate ?

Elixir is just a phyrexian arena without the lifeloss with Oloro. Bond lands come into play untapped so thats nice. Angel of Destiny and Approach of the second sun are interesting backup wincons which might not be super necessary with the amount of wincons already in the deck. Hullbreacher and Opposition Agent are flash creatures that severely slow down our opponents ability to assemble their combos or wincons, while accelerating our plans even further. Vensers Journal is supercharging our lifegain and also works nicely with necropotences hand size. Speaker of the Heavens creates an army of angels by itself turn after turn to serve as good blockers until we get our combo pieces. Soul's Attendant is just another copy of soul warden, which is always solid. Drannith Magistrate locks out opponents from playing their commander, while we still get the benefit from our commander. The main thing is that its a threatening card and opponents will most likely remove it as soon as they can.

I really like this theme, I have a similar one called Angel cleric lifegain from which I’m drawing suggestions.

The way I see it your win-condition is “gain lots of life and then attack with Angel of Destiny ”. So you need to gain lots of life.

I would go 4-of Righteous Valkyrie and Speaker of the Heavens , and add 4-of Bishop of Wings as another method to gain life when angels enter the battlefield. Then, I’d consider some cards for gaining life. Revitalize and Renewed Faith are both good, but I really love Rest for the Weary because you can easily turn on your Speaker on turn 2 and then start pumping out angels.

Other cards to consider include Resplendent Angel to add another angel each turn, Boon Reflection or Rhox Faithmender to double lifegain, or perhaps even Entreat the Angels as an alternative win-con that will also net you life if you have one of the many “gain life with angels” out on the battlefield.

Hey there! I don't play around with white very often but it looks like an interesting deck. For the sake of having Elvish Mystic , I would get rid of them completely and swap the forests over to plains; just stick with mono-white. Speaker of the Heavens would probably be a good replacement. There's also a lot of high cost creatures. Kaldheim came out with a lot of interesting angel cards such as: Youthful Valkyrie and Righteous Valkyrie . Some cheap and early spells to help you make it to bringing out an Angel of Destiny that I think would be good are Pacifism , The Birth of Meletis and Light of Hope .

Hmm. Well, I'm no good with older cards, but they'd be expensive anyway. For a basic blue/white lifegain deck (which is an easy enough deck to pilot), Ajani's Pridemate is really good. Soul Warden is one of the best life gainers in the game, Sphinx's Revelation is really strong in the late game, but they're about $3 each. Felidar Sovereign or Angel of Destiny can give you an alternate way to win, but they aren't necessarily as good as they sound.

More recent good lifegain cards are things like Speaker of the Heavens , Angelic Accord , or Heliod, Sun-Crowned . Remember that you can put up to 4 of any copy of a card in your deck (except basic lands, of which you can have as many as you want). Typically you want as many copies of your good cards as possible.

There are plenty of other archetypes that fit into blue and white, but lifegain is a good one for a new player because it's pretty easy to use and teaches the power of synergy.

Ok, angels is workable. Most of the angels decks I've seen don't need cost-reduction from Dream Devourer because of cards like Youthful Valkyrie that come down early, or because they have removal ( Heartless Act , Eliminate , Banishing Light , etc) to last them until they get their bigger angels (usually around 4 CMC). I've seen a few Azorius (U/W) foretell tribal decks, but it really needs to be all-in, as does angels (usually Orzhov, W/B).

I'd encourage you to look at some current orzhov angels decklists and see what you like. Angels isn't top-tier or anything, but it'll get you up to plat in MTGA if you play it enough. Firja's Retribution is a strong one for angels, as it's a creature, removal, and win condition all in one card. Rampage of the Valkyries might be a two-of to discourage removal. Baneslayer Angel is just difficult to deal with outside of straight removing it. If you're going the lifegain route, Speaker of the Heavens is a good one. Angel of Destiny as a one- or two-of alternate win condition.
