Door of Destinies

Some possible additions would be:

Flowering of the White Tree for buffing everything and giving your legendary creatures some protection.

Windbrisk Heights to help cheat out hopefully something big for doing what you're already doing.

Frontline Medic to help when you swing wide.

Boromir, Warden of the Tower to stop others from getting to cheat out spells in general.

Door of Destinies and Coat of Arms to make your army swol.

Vanquisher's Banner Path of Ancestry and Sylvan Library for some card advantage.

Maybe putting in Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Strixhaven Stadium as additional win conditions to take out players that can guard against you or pillow fort.

It looks like you're also running a counters matter sub theme so maybe Opal Palace has a place too.

YamishiTheWickedOne, well, I used to run Door of Destinies in the deck a long time ago, and the same with Herald's Horn. For me, The high mana cost of the door was just too big a block, and the fact that I kept dropping my vampires' CMC (or mana value I guess) made the horn less and less useful.

The Anointed Procession, though, I have found very useful. Doubling those tokens makes Purphoros and Impact Tremors extra good!

Vessiliana well I finally caved in and decided to try out Purphoros and... the results are much, much better than I expected even if he is just a glorified enchantment here. Thanks for the suggestion. As mentioned, Cover of Darkness is the next thing on my buylist for EDH. And like I said on your list, I cannot recommend Mirror Entity and Mavren Fein strongly enough. Though the best card in the deck might honestly be Sanctum Seeker.

I'm wondering if I should be running Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Vanquisher's Banner, Herald's Horn and maybe Anointed Procession. They all feel a little slow. Thankfully I did at least get procession while it was cheap.

Tinnuki on St. Celestine's Tithe Authority

BakingIsPunk13: No problem. Just a couple things I noticed that I thought I'd point out. Commander's Sphere is not something I'd put in a mono color deck. In my opinion, there's better options for mono-colored mana ramp that I'd rather include, stuff like Marble Diamond or the about-to-be-reprinted Pearl Medallion. Not to mention THE most important card in EDH: Sol Ring!

Why is Altar of Dementia here? Is the plan to sacrifice a bunch of angels to mill someone out? I'd think if you have that much power on the board, you should be able to win the old-fashioned way, no?

Unless I'm missing something, I'm not quite sure what Crucible of Worlds is doing in here. In the context of your deck alone, all it does is allow you to re-use Fabled Passage. Was there another use? General note about lands, since so many of your angels are a high mana cost, I'd definitely look into increasing your land count, even with ramp artifacts.

Some other random cards you might like:
Monologue Tax : Since you have Smothering Tithe
Swiftfoot Boots: Since you have Lightning Greaves
Moonsilver Spear + Seraphic Greatsword
Return to Dust + Disenchant
Door of Destinies
Luminarch Ascension
Path to Exile + Generous Gift
Mana Tithe + Rebuff the Wicked

Side note, you don't need to include Brisela, Voice of Nightmares  Meld  Meld as its own creature, since you have the two halves of it in the creature list. After that, I'm only seeing 97 cards + Giada. Might want to double check your list ;)

Rhadamanthus on Door of Destinies and shrines

The problem here is that Shrine isn't a creature type, it's an enchantment type. You won't be able to choose "Shrine" for Door of Destinies. The Shrine creatures (Go-Shintai of Shared Purpose, etc.) don't actually have any creature types, so Door won't be able to help them. I would have expected them to be Spirits but I guess it wouldn't fit on the type line.

Interactions like this will work for non-creature Tribal spells, like Bitterblossom, Tarfire etc. because the list of Tribal types is defined to be the same as the list of Creature types, so if you want to choose a Creature type that appears on one of your Tribal spells, you'll be allowed to do that (Door of Destinies was printed in a block of sets with a Tribal-type subtheme and this interaction was intentional).

No other forums have an answer to this that I've seen. Building a Shrine deck and I wondered if Door of Destinies would trigger when I can a Shrine spell that isn't a creature, such as Sanctum of All if I chose Shrine spells as the trigger since it doesn't specify when you cast a creature spell of the chosen type, simply when you cast any spell of the chosen creature type. Thanks in advance for the help
