I am surprised by the presence of Urza's Mine, Urza's Tower, and Urza's Power Plant as they only really work when all three are present and you lack any way to force them out. So kinda just left to hoping things shake out. I would suggest maybe changing up the lands a bit if you are staying with mono white to include like 2 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as your devotion to will likely be decent if you can get anything out, maybe like 2 copies of Windbrisk Heights to cheat out a high CMC angel, and maybe a copy or two of Emeria, The Sky Ruin to help in the late game. Just my two cents on the topic...

I have removed one Plains and one Swamp and replaced them with Orzhova, the Church of Deals and Scoured Barrens, since those lands have abilities that are useful to this deck's theme. It is true that the deck now has one less plains and swamp with which Castle Locthwain and Emeria, The Sky Ruin can synergize, but I am confident that the deck still has a sufficient number of both (keeping in mind Godless Shrine is both a plains and a swamp.

I also just realized that I forgot to put Homeward Path and The Immortal Sun in this deck, as those are cards that I have put in nearly every EDH deck that I make, but I cannot afford to make any more changes to this deck, so I suppose that they are not a major loss to it.

Hey! awesome decklist so far! only recommendation i'd throw your way is Emeria, The Sky Ruin free creature from grave is pretty nice for those longer games and easy to search up with an Expedition Map if you dont mind adding one. also noticed you're not running the best mono white ramp card Gift of Estates after the reprint it's super cheap now! even for the fancy versions. :D

Thanks for the comments and questions, Guerric!

Well, so far, I've only had Marshal's Anthem come up once in a game, but when it did, it was sweet. Of course, that was mid-game, and I had plenty of mana, so I was able to get back several angels. I do know, however, from long experience with the card, that it can be hit-and-miss. The thing I like about it is the potential for mass recursion in mono-. I do have my eye on it, though. I run Karmic Guide and Reya Dawnbringer and Emeria, The Sky Ruin already, but my Avacyn deck is hogging my Bruna, the Fading Light  Meld.

If it is a question of either-or, I would recommend Together Forever over Marshal's Anthem.

This deck is still pretty new, so I've not actually drawn Speaker of the Heavens yet. It has been good in my Avacyn deck for a while, though, and I can only think it will be better in Giada.

Victory's Herald is a blast for the lifelink, and Sanctuary Warden is a gem!

for your consideration: Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Inventors' Fair would add upkeep triggers to your lands too

Balaam__ I don't see any downside, so I'd say that sounds good!

I was also thinking of adding one or two Emeria, The Sky Ruin, what're your thoughts on that?

Ajani, Strength of the Pride

You could look at other planeswalkers too, but this Ajani seems to stand out the most.

This is pretty interesting deck, not going to lie. Though there are a few things about it that you could improve the deck with...

First of all is ramp, Mono-white absolutely sucks with ramp I know, especially with getting an 8 drop like Avacyn out, of course stuff like Land Tax and Archaeomancer's Map are good options, they may be a bit on the pricy side. Fortunately stuff like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, and Monologue Tax exist and are relatively light on the budget, Knight of the White Orchid and Keeper of the Accord are also good options for mono-white to help get her out sooner. Also, since artifacts are the main source of ramp for mono-white, why not slip in Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, or Semblance Anvil?

Secondly, there is a lot of removal in this deck, namely single target removal. Avacyn loves boardwipes and similar effects over single target removal as she can protect her allies from them. Worldslayer and Nevinyrral's Disk are great non-sorcery forms of boardwipe that work wonders for Avacyn and Fated Retribution can be quite the surprise. Speaking of, Vanquish the Horde and Hour of Revelation are very strong boardwipes in commander considering the chance you can cast them for cheap is very often. Also, since Avacyn will be a big target to everyone, consider adding in Swiftfoot Boots for redundancy with Lightning Greaves.

Next, the angels. For the most part, these are some pretty good choices, but there are a few issues I can see. Restoration Angel and Angel of Glory's Rise are the biggest whiffs in the deck. As of current, the only human/non-angel creature in your deck they could target/effect (excluding tokens) is Starnheim Aspirant, not bad, but both of these prefer to be in non-angel tribal decks, namely flicker and human tribal decks respectively. Aside from them, look through your angels and note any beatsticks, or angels that only exist just to hit face, and consider removing them, three of them that come to mind are Serra Angel, Seraph of Dawn, and Baneslayer Angel. Consider changing them out for angels like Angel of the Dire Hour, Herald of War, Emeria Shepherd, Serra's Emissary, or Angel of Serenity as they provide utility in addition to being a beatstick. Also consider switching Akroma, Angel of Wrath out for Akroma, Vision of Ixidor for some added oomph for your angels.

Your lands are also pretty solid, but you aren't running anything that can take advantage of all of those snow lands. You have The Book of Exalted Deeds, why not slip in Faceless Haven that can, technically, become an angel and thus receive the book's effects? Speaking of, Search for Glory and Scrying Sheets are great cards with these snow lands as one can tutor out either a snow land or a legendary card while the other works well with Herald's Horn. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is basically free recursion in mono-white while War Room and Bonders' Enclave are nice card draw options in a color that lacks it.
