I also have a Shalai, Voice of Plenty deck. I am on the fence about including Starnheim Aspirant , but I don't see a lot of other decks running it. Seems good--might be able to help cast more than one angel per turn, and cast those Flash angels easier. Its Human subtype synergizes too with cards like Herald of War . How would you evaluate it for a deck like this?

Intro

  • Hm it doesnt seem to have a consistent plan nor a legit format. I would suggest to go for modern since it has a lot of cards in its pool and is the most common 60 cards format besides standard. I am an Angels Deck builder since 6 years, so i have a couple of suggestions. Of course that doesnt mean that you have to change something, i mean it is just a suggestion and all the mentioned cards wont fit anyway in a 60 cards deck. Try to make it more consistent if needed by playing 4-of or tutor effects.

  • Since you mentioned your friend plays burn, i will give you some cards that will make your winrate nearly 100% against burn. Burn has barely no chance against lifegain decks. Angels can be build in a lifegain way, which i am personally no fan of but many are, so here we go.

  • If you want to check out a non lifegain modern Angel deck, you can check out Devotion to White Angels.

Angelic Overseer, Herald of War (which plays well with your Cathar's Crusade, your Gavony Township and your Mikaeus) and Angel of Glory's Rise would be 3 non-humans I'd run in this deck for obvious reasons. On top of that I'd remove Benalish Marshal to add, if you really want to keep the anthem flavor, Knight of New Alara. Dire Tactics would also fit this deck quite well.

Why not some mana rocks?

suggestions right now are to get out all the low-impact 4-5 costed 'big' creatures that sit in your hand as a 1/turn spell even when you have 8 mana available and replace them with stuff that either has an actual impact or that helps big stuff come out faster and better.

in: Angel of Serenity, Kaalia of the Vast, Rakshasa Debaser, Dragon Tempest, Lightning Greaves, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Angel of Condemnation, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Herald of War, literally any land.

out: Bloodgift Demon, Demanding Dragon, Desecration Demon, Taurean Mauler, Nesting Dragon, Hoarding Dragon, Ambition's Cost, Conjurer's Closet, Idyllic Tutor, Memorial to Folly.

Also update the list so it has Graveshifter and not Gravedigger.

If you want to go to the angel sub-theme with life gain, then why are you not playing Lyra Dawnbringer? Pump the angels and give them lifelink. Herald of War can also help you get the board filled with angels.

Just too bad there is no cheap thing to prevent all your creatures to die from a single board wipe! Something in the form of a permanent that gives your team indestructible like Sephara, Sky's Blade! Too bad that there is no angel you can play for single mana just like Sephara, Sky's Blade with tapping a few creatures you made with something like Lingering Souls. Ow, wait there is a good one for that... !Sephara, Sky's Blade!

Something to think about is also Angelic Field Marshal & Ondu Inversion  Flip. Don't forget something like Day of Judgment :P

What I also think is that you are hard to attack well. You will have a field and you can hit hardback with revenge. Becoming the monarch is the way to get card draw. Court of Grace & Court of Ambition can help you with that.

You also have a life gain package. How about some payoffs for that? Vilis, Broker of Blood, Sanguine Bond & Bloodthirsty Aerialist can help you with that.

You are trying to slowly gain value, get a big board and kill your opponents over the long game. How about you stop others from gaining life with Erebos, God of the Dead.

If you play multiple colours you can use Field of the Dead :).

I love seeing mono-color decks! Thank you for your Angel-tribal deck, I had one of my own a few years back but it never really went off as well as I'd wanted. Hopefully, yours can do better!

Here are some cards I'd recommend:

Angel's Grace // Platinum Angel --- These cards are good for survivability, so your opponents don't sneak a win!

Speaker of the Heavens // Bishop of Wings --- I love both of these cards. While they aren't Angels themselves, they're best-friends with them!

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx // Herald of War // Pearl Medallion // Nyx Lotus // Caged Sun --- These guys all have a way of making your cards easier to cast, and let's face it, Angels cost a lot of mana!

Angel of Jubilation --- Badass

Angelic Skirmisher --- Badass

Archangel of Tithes --- Also, Badass

Test of Endurance // Felidar Sovereign // Approach of the Second Sun // Darksteel Reactor --- These are all ways to win the game without bringing your opponents' HP to 0!

I hope I was able to help in some way!
