Herald of the Host

Creature — Angel

Flying, vigilance

Myriad (Whenever this creature attacks, for each opponent other than defending player, you may put a token that's a copy of this creature onto the battlefield tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker he or she controls. Exile the token at the end of combat.)

Saw that you were looking for help and this commander seems pretty cool. Not sure what your budget is, but I'm going to make some suggestions at different price points.

Here's some cards I'd cut: Angel's Grace, Cleric Class, Angelic Accord, Treasure Chest, The Book of Exalted Deeds, Panharmonicon, Arcane Signet, Marble Diamond, Campfire, Mass Calcify, Brave the Elements, Cleansing Nova, Everflowing Chalice, and Gift of Estates

I can provide more explanation on why, but generally these cards are low impact, less helpful than they may seem, or off theme a bit. Some of these are life gain or ETB payoffs but they don't have many ways to trigger them.

I'm seeing a wincon through combat with the deck as is. Giada is Ramp in the command zone but only for Angels, and the starting list only has 17 Angel spells. Turn 2 Giada and hitting all your land drops means we can send out 4 CMC angels turn 3.

I recommend Emeria Angel, Guardian Seraph, Angel of Condemnation

A lot of the Angel's are high CMC but you're running a lot of cost reducers. Due to this I think you need more lands and more Draw. Arch of Orazca, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Sea Gate Wreckage and War Room are all utility lands you can run in mono color that tap for colorless mana and help you draw.

That leaves seven more cards to add back in. I'd go with Karmic Guide, Twilight Shepherd, Battlegrace Angel, Angelic Sleuth, Herald of the Host, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, and Aegis Angel

If you haven't considered them yet, I recommend checking out Silent Arbiter and Crawlspace as additional support pieces to your Exalted theme.

There are some creatures that hit pretty hard by themselves, or create tokens with Myriad. The tokens don't count against Exalted since they weren't declared as attackers:

I like the flavor route you went with your primer. Definitely makes for a more interesting read lol.

If you want to lean into Exalted single combat shenanigans, I'd recommend checking out Silent Arbiter and/or Crawlspace, and force your opponents to play closer to your terms. Crawlspace is a bit on the pricier side depending on your budget. That's mostly because it lacks reprints. Silent Arbiter might be a better fit for you.

If you want more Myriad stuff which fits with your Battle Angels of Tyr (a card I'm very excited to try in my Isshin deck), I'd also recommend checking out Hammers of Moradin, also from CLB. There's also Duke Ulder Ravengard which can give your stuff Myriad, and technically attack solo. I used to run Herald of the Host before upgrading to Battle Angels of Tyr.

In case you haven't seen it yet, Balor can also hit pretty heavily on its own. Another cool creature I'm interested in trying out is Zhentarim Bandit.

Hope some of those suggestions are to your liking.

Just wanted to drop a note of appreciation for your build here. I've been keeping pretty close track of it as soon as you started it, as well as used some early iterations on building my own Isshin deck - also gave you props in my build that I've posted here on TappedOut, 'cause that's the right thing to do :P So far I've only gotten two playtests, but the playgroup looks to be active this coming weekend - hoping for some action and at least one win on the day!

I'm particularly excited for CL2, because I completely agree that Battle Angels of Tyr is going to have much better synergy and value compared to Herald of the Host. I took a little bit of a vacation tho, so, I haven't been able to dig too much into New Capenna - although there does seem to be some promising things in there, so I might need to dig some more and perhaps convince my bank account that I don't hate it. =)

jybuckeyeThanks for the encouragement! While I'm not running Herald of the Host at the moment I do have it and it would be good, even if it is removal bait. Battle Angels of Tyr will be an auto-include and I've already ordered it! It will replace Emeria Angel in the list once it releases.

Phule451 I do think you make a valid point, and I am going to published a revised assessment of changelings in the deck soon. Stay Tuned!

I'm also hoping to slide Inspiring Overseer into the deck and to up my angel count by one. I'll have to cut a support piece for it, so I'll figure out which one is the best one to go.

Love the deck. Working on my own brew right now. Myriad seems pretty good with Giada's ability which makes Herald of the Host and Battle Angels of Tyr great options.

Herald of the Host and the new Battle Angels of Tyr fit perfectly in a Giada deck. You should definitely check them out!
