Have you considered Baneslayer Angel, Emeria Angel, or Righteous Valkyrie? They seem like they could help to lower your curve a bit while providing some cool advantages.

golgarigirl on Akroma Keywords First EDH Deck …

I've built Akroma/ Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh before as well. I think Kamahl is probably the overall more powerful option and ramps/fixes/draws better on a budget, but Rograkh can come in early and hard. I've also seen Akroma + Tana, the Bloodsower to allow access to Red and Green for both Rograkh and Kamahl (and some fun things like Samut, Voice of Dissent).

Focus your early game on ramping and you should be able to fill most of your deck with defenses and do well just off your commanders. Other than ramp spells like Farseek, Cultivate etc and defenses like Akroma's Will, there are tons of creatures out there with many keywords. Budget end-game beater options include Baneslayer Angel, End-Raze Forerunners, and Archon of Valor's Reach.

This interaction is due to Baneslayer Angel 's first strike ability. Easy to miss among all those other words!

magiceli on Hallowed Priest triggers during combat

I was playing on mtga and my opponent attacked in with a 2/2 Hallowed Priest and some big Baneslayer Angel . I blocked his Hallowed Priest with a 1/3 Dawnbringer Cleric thinking that although the angel had lifelink all the damage would happen at the same time and the priest would still be a 2/2 when he hit my cleric. However, mtga showed me the angel hitting my face, lifegain, then the priest bumping up to a 3/3 to kill my cleric. Is this an error with mtga or does damage go sequentially like that? If it does, who decides the order that it goes in? Thanks for answers.

Hi Minousmancer,
sorry for my late response and thanks for your suggestions.
First: "exchange the Scoured Barrens with Shineshadow Snarl "
I've thought about it a lot, and you are right. I realy liked the aspect of getting one extra life with Scoured Barrens to trigger Cleric of Life's Bond when I don't have another cleric, or rather want to play Youthful Valkyrie . But it doesn't gives me as much tempo as Shineshadow Snarl gives me.
Second: "And I'd add more to the Baneslayer Angel s and Resplendent Marshal maybe taking out Orah, Skyclave Hierophant and Angelic Guardian s"
I swapped the one Angelic Guardian for one Baneslayer Angel - yeah, it's just the better card ...
And at the end I swapped both copies of Orah, Skyclave Hierophant for two additional copies of Resplendent Marshal . I guess Orah is for more cleric heavy decks and the mana curve looks way nicer.
Thanks again - I play this deck nearly every day and I'm really happy that it's now better than ever. :D
Have a good day~

I only have two, suggestions.

I would exchange the Scoured Barrens with Shineshadow Snarl s.

And I'd add more to the Baneslayer Angel s and Resplendent Marshal maybe taking out Orah, Skyclave Hierophant and Angelic Guardian s.

This is kinda sorta my take on an Angel deck: Anunnaki.
