Hey Saccox! Changeling Outcast looks good, a one drop is always good. Would you like to explain what synergy you have in mind between Changeling Outcast + Sigiled Sword of Valeron ? I like Etchings of the Chosen, seems like it would be good in pretty much any black and white tribal deck. It could possibly be swapped for Dauntless Bodyguard or maybe Brave the Sands. Lastly, I love Return from Extinction, to me, it feels like a direct upgrade from Unearth and it would also be great in a zombie deck that I'm building.

Since you're completely built around Stoic Angel, I'm surprised you aren't running more creatures with Vigilance! After all, her drawback applies to you too, meaning you can swing with a vigilant army turn after turn and save your one untap for a mana dork or whatever. There are plenty of solid budget options, including Alert Heedbonder, Tajuru Pathwarden and Taranika, Akroan Veteran. Of course, you can also just staple Vigilance onto your whole crew with something like Brave the Sands or the humble Serra's Blessing!

The other thing to consider is having a repeatable, reliable tapping effect. Bounding Krasis and Icefall Regent can tap a creature... once. But maybe something nastier shows up later - then you'd be better served by something like Icy Manipulator. Having more cards that can tap a creature on demand than just the mana-intensive Verity Circle is likely to keep your opponent down once the Angel is in play.

Oh, I like Chained to the Rocks a fair amount. Keep that one in.


As far as utility goes, you have some real winners. I like Berserkers' Onslaught and LOVE Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread. Iroas, God of Victory is excellent. I like Brave the Sands a lot too. I actually have a soft spot for Story Circle but i could see it staying or being cut.

I kind of like Deflecting Palm but Comeuppance may be better. Probably won't have room for them though. Feudkiller's Verdict I love for the flavor but isn't too great. I might be tempted to keep it though!

I love that Hammer of Purphoros is in. Haste matters a surprising amount when you're dropping huge creatures. You might want to include Fervor as well. I should have one on hand for trade. One more advantage for Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves. No wonder they're so ubiquitous!

Aurification seems like a sweet choice. I have a Ghostly Prison on hand if you want an added layer of defense. I run one in my Giant deck. Speaking of defense, Boros Charm is an excellent include. Make sure it ends up in the final list.

I would drop all the anthem effects. They aren't great when you're boosting two 6/6s up to 7/7s. They're for go-wide strategies like zombies, elves, and goblins. Spear of Heliod has the utility of destroying creatures, but leaving three mana open al the time is hard when you're trying to cast a bunch of 7-drops. Perhaps it could count as one of your Removal cards.

Damage doublers will be much more effective. I have a promo Dictate of the Twin Gods if you'd like. Furnace of Rath is good and Fiery Emancipation is insane, but they're pricey. I don't have either of them for trade. I do have a Gratuitous Violence somewhere that you can have; it's almost as good.

Along with Berserkers' Onslaught, I have Blood Mist and a Duelist's Heritage on hand. Rage Reflection would be great too because it works on defense too. I don't have one though. I have a Loyal Unicorn, but it's no giant. Nahiri's Machinations is a fun budget choice if you wanted to pick up an effect like that. I have a Dolmen Gate for trade as well. I adore that card and run it in many decks.

You probably aren't going to have much more room for utility cards if you want to keep your creature count high. I would recommend dropping every miscellaneous card not mentioned here.
