Also, Archangel of Thune or possible Well of Lost Dreams.

sora719, Hi again! I'm so glad you've been keeping up with the deck since the start!

Funnily enough, 3 of the 4 suggestions you made I've been silently questioning myself over as well.

To get Vilis, Broker of Blood out of the way, assuming we use the same 8 mana for Debt to the Deathless, that IS a gain 24 life and a drain of 8 per opponent. As of now, I consider that a worthy value and will make the change.

I've done the math for Divinity of Pride and Archangel of Thune, and assuming I only have the given creature and Liesa out, DoP has more lifegain for the first 3 turns of combat. After that, AoT has the better lifegain rate, as it increases every turn. Notably, I have 17 possible ways to gain life in the deck, so it's likely I could make AoT buff even faster. My only worry is that a growing board/ growing Liesa will incentivise my opponents to kill it/her more than DoP ever would.

However Archangel of Thune is my favorite angel (after mistress Liesa of course), so I'm inclined to use it. Given the fact that it also isn't as color restrictive as DoP, I'll go ahead and make the change.

I have more than enough copies of Erebos, God of the Dead laying around, and the indestructible creature makes it very versatile, so I'll make that change too.

Finally, Heliod's Intervention. I did originally have it in the maybe board, but I couldn't find a slot for it. Anyone who's seen my Karametra, God of Harvests deck knows I love me some enchantment and artifact removal. That being said, I'm still not sure what I would remove for it.

I'll add it back to the maybe board, and hope I grow tired of some other card so I can make the switch.

Thank you so much for the comment and help!

Hello again man. First talking about the Vilis, Broker of Blood,I think he is a bit expensive for what we try to do, with all the other draw it´s a bit redundant, and he can´t be cheated from hand or GV.

Personally I don´t run him in my list for the same reason I cut Archfiend of Despair. Debt to the Deathless is good for the deck. Having at least one big X drain spell.

Second, I know Divinity of Pride is awesome and thicc, but I could easily replace him for something like Archangel of Thune, same cost and can make herself and Liesa really big. Even Vona, Butcher of Magan has more utility and impact but I haven´t tested it enough.

Lastly the easiest one, Tainted Remedy is super narrow, powerful in some tables but in general meh.Erebos, God of the Dead seems way better as it is indestructible and preventing them for gaining life is the most important part of the card. The card draw it´s just the extra and it´s wonderful,because it balances the card draw if you cut Vilis.

If I may say another recommendation, I run Heliod´s intervention on nearly every white deck I own, just amazing value, and the second part of the card is sweet in this deck.

Greetings

Are you committed to the artifact combo lines? Totally fine if you are, but those were a good fit for Teshar because he's mono-W and has artifact synergy. With a Selesnya commander like Hamza, you have access to more streamlined creature combos (and the good part about this is that they function as a backup beater plan much more efficiently). If you want to look into that, there's stuff like Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies infinite mana, Spike Feeder and Archangel of Thune infinite life and counters, and plenty more.

I recommend it because your commander automatically helps with those combos, and because green gives you access to creature tutors to help find them (or find beaters if you want to go that route).

Hi! I having been taking a look at Lathiel, and your deck, and they both seem pretty solid. However, I do have a few suggestions.

For counters, you might want to include Conclave Mentor, Iridescent Hornbeetle, Solidarity of Heroes, and Pledge of Unity.

I'd also recommend Whispersilk Cloak to protect Lathiel, and allow you to punch through your lifelink/commander damage.

To gain a massive amount of life in a turn how about Ajani, Mentor of Heroes?

The final suggestion I have is Spike Feeder, as it goes infinite with Archangel of Thune.
