ok, cut the following:

Noble Purpose, Defy Death, Entreat the Angels, Angel of Grace, Angel of Sanctions (for Christs sake just run Path to Exile ), Avacyn, Guardian Angel, Serra's Guardian, Segovian Angel, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun (you're not going wide when you play one expensive angel a turn), Angel of Dawn.

Add more efficient angels, and add better removal/board wipes.

why so many wipes? with so many permanents what are they good for? just because Bishop of Wings would leave a few Spirits? it can't be that.

and what are the tutors for?

also what about Daxos, Blessed by the Sun or Metallic Mimic?

also don't you want Felidar Sovereign instead of Test of Endurance?

It's your boy Jason.

Here's a bunch of cards that should be less than $1 that I think could be possible additions. Feel free to ignore me. Also this is Zach: Zjadler and this is Stephen: icefrigi if you want to check out their decks.

I use Impassioned Orator in my MTG Arena Lifegain deck, as well as Daxos, Blessed by the Sun that you also are already running. Depending on how this deck plays (I've not tested it) you might want another creature with a similar effect.

Also, I've found that Sacred Cat is quite good synergy for Daxos in particular, since you can get 2 casts and 2 deaths out of each one you include (total of 4 lifegain triggers from Daxos, 2 from Orator).

Speaker of the Heavens seems like he'd be a solid addition here, and

Finally Light of Hope can be useful for getting to your activation count on Resplendent Angel, and it's got added utility as well for some enchantment hate and potential to save a creature from something like Shock tipping over the last damage to kill it off.

Reznorboy - Good day to you!

I am not really sure what benefit there is to playing Instants and Sorceries over creatures to produce tokens. I could see playing Saproling Migration over Emmara, but the effect is more or less the same.

One of the things I attempt to do with my decks is have them each possess a different game plan. I see the appeal of abusing enchantments, though I already have an Enchantress Deck in Karametra and, as for Bastion of Remembrance, an Aristocrats Deck in Adun Oakenshield. I am an aggressive player at heart, and this deck was meant to embody that. These game plans are fun, but the aggro style is distinct.

Now, however aggressive I like to be, I love secondary game plans. Carnival of Souls is a card I have wanted to abuse, though never got around to experimenting. It works well with the deck, given the horrendous number of tokens it spews, yet I do not have many solid cards in here with which I may spend all that mana. I am open to suggestions on that part.

Daxos seems rather fine, thereupon I may put it in the list, but I do prefer Gisela in this slot, merely due to her being an awesome card.

Yes, tutors. I own multiple Demonic Tutors, so perhaps I should add one...

Thank you very much, and I would love further guidance with Carnival of Souls. Black is more of a splash in this list, so I may need to rework most of it.

Have a lovely day.

I think that the Commander(s) you have is the best way to play Abzan in EDH in my opinion, and it's already pretty good, but I can easily see ways to improve it.

If you want aggro with tokens, here's what I would do (or at least consider): Play some more tutors so that you have regular access to Carnival of Souls, and play a few more lifegain cards, like Daxos, Blessed by the Sun.

Then, you can try to play fewer creatures, but more token producers, especially enchantments, like Bastion of Remembrance so that you can abuse cards like Argothian Enchantress.

Lastly, I would add black instants to be abused with Carnival of Souls.
