lhetrick13 - Hi! Good to hear from you again! I've taken a look at Sucks to Suck and I have a few ideas/pointers. I've had similar problems with other +1/+1 counter decks that I've tried to build. I'll leave a comment with my thoughts on the deck during the weekend.

Also, I'm sorry for not replying to your last message. I had completely missed it. Like you say, Hour of Revelation isn't a particularly consistent combo and that's why I only run two copies. But it's a card that's just plain fun for me to play. And Hour of Revelation has helped me out in a few games. Being able to clear the board and rebuild faster than my opponent has turned a few games in my favour. However, if I feel like I need more lands Hour of Revelation will probably be the first card to go.

I've never played on MTGO but perhaps I should give it a try. I'll let you know if I do!

Yogei - Liking the changes to your Immortal Knights deck. Looking pretty potent! Hit me up on MTGO for a knight battle one of these days!

About the only cards I would question would be Hour of Revelation. The combo is definitely valid but my question is how often do you actually get to play the Hour of Revelation + Knight Exemplar combo? Knight Exemplar by herself is still great but Hour of Revelation is situational at best if Knight Exemplar is missing although since you are running Unearth you could take some losses and recover.

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.

Not saying put all of those suggested cards in I'm just giving you selection. With your cmdr being the board wipe I just don't see the reason for so many board wipe spells. Especially the ones that cost more to cast than your cmdr. Vanquish the Horde and Blasphemous Act and Hour of Revelation are the 3 I like the most, because you can use them early.

why don't you have Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots ? I'm sure they'd be useful in this deck. Also, I think the cost of auras are reduced with Killian, so you should add some auras. I'm not too familiar with auras, but a good one is Spirit Mantle . Grateful Apparition would be pretty great in this deck I think, seeing as to how you are using +1/+1 counters to make your dude strong. Something like Glimpse the Sun God would be good in this deck too. Also, Hour of Revelation is just a better Planar Cleansing . Finally, since you are doing a voltron strat, you should add Rogue's Passage since it would give your big swinger unlockable.

Anyways, I hope this helps a bit.

In the past few years, there have been a lot of nice new angels. Archangel of Tithes , Lyra Dawnbringer , and Emeria Shepherd are some of them. Smothering Tithe is a fantastic newer card. Generous Gift is a great piece of interaction. Hour of Revelation is a strong boardwipe that we got a few years back. I like Ondu Inversion  Flip, too, since it's a land and doesn't take up deckspace if you replace a plains. Akroma's Will can be a great finisher. Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn are great ramp for an angel tribal deck, if that's what you want to go for. If you're not hung up on angels, I'd say Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite fits the stax theme well.

Osbert you've just named cards that I've cut before haha. Helm of the Host is a good card, but very, very boring I found. I didn't take it out for power, I took it out because it was a boring win condition. When you don't have helm, Godo, Bandit Warlord turns out to be not that great outside of a dedicated equipment deck, which this deck has become less and less of. Same with Hammer of Nazahn , great in a dedicated equipment deck, pretty meh outside of one. The more non-equipment support Boros has gotten has made me move away from equipment (I have another Boros deck that focuses on equipment).

Brought Back is cute and could be good, but I don't have room in the deck for it. It's one I've got in the back of my mind.

I cannot disagree with you more about Fiendish Duo . Name another creature that costs less mana that doubles damage for my opponents. Any effect that costs less is not a creature. Being a creature is important in this deck, so Fiendish Duo wins over cards like Fiery Emancipation or Insult / Injury .

I also super disagree with you about Hour of Revelation . It's a hard board wipe that costs 3 mana 95% of the time. As with ANY board wipe, you don't play it if it hurts you, you hold onto it. The fact that it only costs 3 mana is huge though, it's one of white's best board wipes. Additionally, it's not uncommon to pull off a one-sided board wipe by pairing it with something like a Boros Charm .

As for Cavalier of Flame , I've been testing it (it says that in the deck description). So far it's been performing well. The thing that matters a lot about it is that it's 5 cmc. Boros has a LOT of good cards at 6 cmc, and seeing that my commander is also at that cmc I have to be really picky about that. So far, for the cmc that it's at, both cavaliers have been performing fine. Still in testing though, but I'm not cutting it for a non-creature OR a 6 cmc creature.

Didn't see the arena, lol. That said, if I ever need a Planar Cleansing effect, I like using Hour of Revelation in the deck. It's a very underused card in my opinion. Food for thought, just in case. =3
