Angel of Jubilation Discussion

I definitely like this deck, but Angel of Jubilation will prevent you from using the fetchlands that it contains, since those cards require the payment of life in order to use their abilities.

DigitlViking Angel of Jubilation it's my choice amongst those cards also. It hits fetches so it's probably the one that disturbs the most decks and at least it's and anthem when the disruption doesn't matter. Only cons, dies to bolt and the triple white pip can be annoying from time to time.
The mask might be unplayable, or it might be great, It's probably better in my head than it will be in reality, xD, so yeah, please share your findings and your thoughts! The more people playing and play testing this deck the better it will get! Good luck with the deck and most importantly, have fun!

darkmus Appreciate the thoughts. I happen to have the Mask of Memory sitting in one of these long boxes here I think, so maybe I will give that a go and see what happens. I do have a solid pile of angels here I could try swapping in and out to see where I end up with them. Given what some are playing locally, Angel of Jubilation might end up being a solid contender for the slots as well. That would likely be the most disruptive.
Once I get things sleeved up and a few games in I will hopefully be able to report back about the masks.

DigitlViking glad you like the deck! With an appropriate SB for the meta I am sure you can get a few wins with this deck, and more importantly have a ton of fun.
Archangel of Thune is our biggest finisher and we tend to want one as soon as we can cast it. That said it's a 5 drop and it's not like we can't win without her so I don't think there will be much problem going to 3 to save a few bucks. Lyra Dawnbringer is the second best choice for a 5 drop IMO for this deck, and they do quite similar things, so it won't make much difference if you go 3 Thunes and 1 Lyra. And in the future you may want to upgrade once tryed and seen why Thune has an slight edge.
About Shalai, Voice of Plenty , I think she's amazing, you are always happy to see her in your hand. She protects us and our hand super well and combos neatly with Giver of Runes. You feel safe with her on board. The only reason I don't run a 4 of is because she is legendary. But she doesn't really advance our win plan, so I assume that if you cut one of them our plan doesn't really change or gets affected, it's just a bit easier to disrupt.
About other options, the other best angel 4 drops are Archangel of Tithes, Angel of Jubilation and Linvala, Keeper of Silence. I already explained their their individual pros and cons more in depth in previous comments so check those out. But basically those 3 (may depending on the deck) disrupt your oppenents plan. But to have a card that my or my not disrupt the oppenents plan I'll rather have one that ensures that our plan doesn't get f****d. After all we are in white, every card is relevant.
Card draw is a huge problem so I've been thinking lately about testing a 2 of Mask of Memory and my main candidates to go were actually an archangel and a Shalai so you might want to be the one who gives it a try and tell us all how it went. I think that with such a cheap both cast and specially equipping cost and so many flyers in our deck it has the chance of being pretty consistent.

zapyourtumor I find Prismatic Ending to be pretty bad if you re only running 2 colors, that wouldn't remove even 1 of the things I care about (like ensnaring bridge or basically any planneswalker other than Wrenn).
Ive tried Vindicate but I don't find it better than Anguished Unmaking . Anguished doesn't hit lands but since I don't need it I'll rather have it be instant speed and exile the thing. The instant part is huge. Loosing 3 life is irrelevant in this deck. Non of the removals you suggested could remove Heliod for example.
How is Anguished not a great removal spell in practice? Its literally the best non conditional removal of the game next to vindicate. (which you recommended and is almost the same thing). 3cmc exile almost whatever you want, no questions asked.
I've tried Archangel of Tithes and its doesn't add much. 3 white mana some times can be a bit hard to have if you needed to declare cleric on Cavern to play bishop T2 or got a couple Seraph Sanctuaries early. Creatures in the deck tend to be big and gain me a ton of life so I don't mind being attacked, I can block or just let some damage trough. Also almost all my creatures fly so they can rarely be blocked. For that cost i'll rather play Angel of Jubilation . It shut's down fetches and some decks. But surprisingly Legion Angel turned out to be a MVP for 4cmc. Good evasive attacker that gives me card advantage (I am in white so I need whatever I can get, xD) and above all, ensures me 3 straight turns of triggering all my stuff, gaining a ton of life, putting angel tokens etc.
Thanks for the suggestions!

Since this is a new deck and a work in progress, I am going to post a large maybeboard here of cards that I will likely try out.

Oh man, Archangel Avacyn is the commander deck I've had for the longest! I was the original person building her, I had great success... This is my deck, for context:

Have you considered including some of the lower-cost angels which also act as hatebears? Such as Archangel of Tithes and Angel of Jubilation? I've noticed that you're running a lot of the "whenever this takes damage, it deals that much elsewhere" cards, have you considered Repercussion?
I'd highly recommend Blasphemous Act (you can drop Avacyn, give indestructible, then blow up the field for a single red mana), Flawless Maneuver/Teferi's Protection (they work great to dodge one of your own board wipes), andd Wear / Tear over Disenchant. Frilled Deathspitter seems like the most natural cut. Hope this helps! :D
