Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Legendary Creature — Angel

Flying, first strike

If a source would deal damage to an opponent or a permanent an opponent controls, that source deals double that damage to that player or permanent instead.

If a source would deal damage to you or a permanent you control, prevent half that damage, rounded up.

I would cut:

Insufficiently on theme - these are good cards but don´t take advantage of your commander or what you´re trying to do. Magnetic Theft , Comeuppance , Electrodominance , Lapse of Certainty , Panic , Return to Dust , Teferi's Protection , Temur Battle Rage , Titan's Strength , Wear , Acrobatic Maneuver , Wheel of Fortune , Blasphemous Act , Day of Judgment , Empty the Warrens , Faithless Looting , Gamble , Kari Zev's Expertise , Wrath of God ,

Removal targets: Smothering Tithe , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

good cards you don´t really have the support for. Aurelia, the Warleader , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Cloudshift - the only solid target I see is Sun Titan ? same with Eerie Interlude

Paradox Engine was recently banned in commander.

Given that I cut more than the needed 16 I´ll point out a couple feather allstars you´re missing.

Aurelia's Fury - does so much. One damage to one of your creatures and you have repeatable tapping, removal, and combo protection. Intimidation Bolt - repeatable fog when targeting your own creature. Spawning Breath - this is your smothering tithe replacement, mana, creatures for Zada to target, and removal in a pinch all on an instant. Orim's Thunder - kicked is the best repeatable enchantment and artifact removal I´ve found.

I did have Gisela, Blade of Goldnight at one point, but removed her awhile back for some reason. And you're absolutely right about Teferi's Protection -- I have one in another deck but haven't gotten around to buying one because of the price and hate proxying. I honestly didn't even know Mana Tithe was a card lmao.

Very helpful! Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I looked at your decks and really like your playstyle. I plan on making some more thematic decks, the first being heavily occult-focused. Thanks!

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight should probably go in this right?

I expected to see Gisela, Blade of Goldnight in this deck. You might want to invest in a Teferi's Protection - I know plenty of people who will attempt to boardwipe. If you really wan to go towards the more competitive side of EDH then I suggest putting Mana Tithe in this deck. Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben are both good additions to the deck.

I hope my suggestions have helped! If you have some time, have a look at some of my decks. I am a theme builder but you never know if you find something you can use.

Nice deck! I have a Feather deck too - you might want to invest in an Anya, Merciless Angel and a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Parhelion II is also a fun addition to the deck. Anax and Cymede may also be handy in this deck. Angelic Arbiter will make your opponents' lives very difficult.

Hope these suggestions have come in handy!

multimedia on B/W ....angles??

An angle to consider is Mardu Angels :)

Kaalia of the Vast is a Commander to consider for Angels to cheat them onto the battlefield. Red is for Kaalia, haste for Kaalia and some red Angels such as Aurelia, the Warleader , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Planeswalkers and black reanimation can be a back-up plans if Kaalia fails. If you also like Demons then you can combine Angels and Demons if using Kaalia as Commander.

multimedia I need to update the deck since I do have a few of the cards you are suggesting and I need to remove and swap some stuff out.

I would like to keep Sorin, Grim Nemesis in the deck since it has just won me a game before.

Archetype of Courage gives my creatures first strike which is more to combo with Queen Marchesa for deathtouch.

I keep Protector of the Crown in in case I need to get the monarchy back and because it combos really well with Hammer of Nazahn

I like Torment of Hailfire but I could see removing it since I’m not playing mono black and don’t have a crazy amount of mana ramp.

I’ve been meaning to put in my Luminarch Ascension , Windborn Muse , No Mercy , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and Enlightened Tutor . I also have a Containment Priest so I should probably put that in since it also goes good with Kaya, Ghost Assassin

I would like to hear your reasons for making some of the cuts you suggest.
