Flying, vigilance

Nice start.. Very casual playgroup I assume? Couple of issues I've noticed, Archangel Avacyn  Flip can't be used in a mono-white deck. Her red flip side makes her color identity W/R. Also, you can only have one copy of Luminous Bonds in the deck.

If you want to speed up the deck to get some of your angels out faster, you could take a look at my deck An Angel's Embrace. It will also give you an idea about some of the better angels to replace some of your not so useful ones.

Don't get discouraged. My deck at one time looked very similar to this until I realized that in order to compete with more experienced players and tuned decks, I needed more utility and deck speed.

I recently took both the Akromas out of my angels deck since while I feel like they are good beaters I felt that Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Angel of Serenity added a little more strategy to the deck. May bring back the white Akroma since she is great for all the keywords she has.

EDHRec is a great website to find cards that might be good in any specific archetype. Don't go adding all of their recommendations in willy-nilly though, make sure the cards you add contribute to what you want the deck to be.

My favorite angel is Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

I'm not sure if your playgroup has a special rule about adding colors, but if not, you cannot play Archangel Avacyn  Flip in this deck. Flip cards have a color identity that includes both sides of the card, so Avacyn 2.0 is Boros colors.

Sorry to be a buzzkill, man.

You're already playing Avacyn, Angel of Hope . Sephara is a downgrade and another high mana cost creature. Iona and Avacyn have high mana costs, but their abilities are worth all the mana. Sephara's is not worth it unless you can consistently use her replacement casting cost.

Consider Resplendent Angel ? Resplendent is the best lowest mana cost Angel, her ability is very good in multiplayer Commander and she's busted with Lyra. I think Baneslayer Angel and/or Archangel Avacyn  Flip also belong in place of other high mana cost Angels. Baneslayer is good with Resplendent.

So with the ban for Iona I need to find a new angel for my Aurrealia the warleader angel tribal deck.

Aurelia's Angelic crusade

My first thought are for some angels that give indestructible, but I’m open to suggestions.

Sephara, Sky's Blade is one that seems very good since it will act as a mini Avacyn.

Another I had some thoughts of and already have in paper is Archangel Avacyn  Flip since the flash indestructibility and lower cmc could be good to take people by surprise since a lot of resources tend to go into board wipes.

Also I meant to suggest Archangel Avacyn  Flip who flips into Avacyn, the Purifier .

Avacyn, Hellbringer

Legendary creature – Angel

Flying, haste

Permanents you control have indestructible as long as Avacyn is attacking.

Whenever Avacyn attacks, deal three damage to each other creature and each player.


In a booster box of SOI I pulled two Archangel Avacyn  Flip, which was my favorite card for a while (I mean, it was kinda overpowered for standard)
