You are Absolutely Correct! Removed and placed in Karmic Guide for better curve and better targets for pod.

EVEN-ELITE on Ghave That Bitch an Infinite Combo [Primer]

Thoughts on Boonweaver Giant? With a sac outlet, Saffi Eriksdotter, Reveillark, and Karmic Guide, you can fetch out every creature in the deck. This happens because Boonweaver Giant ends up searching for Pattern of Rebirth.

I'm unsure if you're against infinite combos, but if you're not you should definitely include Karmic Guide as it goes infinite with Reveillark as long as you have a sacrifice outlet that doesn't have an cost associated. Even without the combo in mind it's a card I would consider. I would recommend maybe adding one or two more sacrifice outlets that are conditionless as well, as you currently only have 3 and don't have a great deal of search options to ensure you reliably find one which can make the death triggers harder to land.

Wake the Dead is a decent card to consider, as you can throw a lot of creatures into play and get a lot of death triggers at instant speed, and you don't necessarily even need a sacrifice outlet online to get them. If you do have a sac outlet though, then Rally the Ancestors is equally potent and can end up being a lot cheaper if you're going for mass recursion. I've got a somewhat similar themed deck here if you want to look through it for card ideas. Overall a good looking deck though!

Hey, good first version, nice Avacyn, Angel of Hope.

Having some backup plans to cheat big creatures onto the battlefield can be helpful because you will not always control Kaalia. Reanimation and ramp are two straight forward backup plans to consider expanding on.

  • Rakdos, Lord of Riots: Demon who can reduce the colorless cost of creatures you cast.
  • Emeria Shepherd: repeatable reanimate any nonland permanent in your graveyard if you play a Plains or if you play any land then put that permanent into your hand instead.
  • Karmic Guide: Angel who can reanimate any creature in your graveyard.
  • Nahiri, the Harbinger: all her loyalty abilities are good, her -8 can tutor for any creature and put it on the battlefield.
  • Wayfarer's Bauble: land ramp that has interaction with Emeria Shepherd since it can get a basic Plains, repeatable with Shepherd for two mana.

Some changes to consider:

Some other upgrades to consider:

Some lands to consider adding to improve the manabase in place of some basic lands, the three Bounce lands, Wreckage and the two Scry lands.

If you choose to add Emeria Shepherd then some Fetch lands that can get a basic Plains are helpful because they give you two triggers of landfall.

Good luck with your deck.

Magewright's Stone is pretty good in Brion decks. Especially in mine. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Karmic Guide, and Reveillark is a potent grave recursion combo, Feldon also helps very well with it, as you have him in there already.

here is mine if you want a look. I took a slightly different path

Decent angel deck. You could add some utility creatures in there as well like Angel of Finality, Emeria Shepherd, Karmic Guide, Reya Dawnbringer, or Twilight Shepherd. I have a decent white control deck that uses a wide variety of mechanics that could find there way into this deck. I was attempting to stay on brand for your deck with my suggestions, but if you want some other ideas you're welcome to check out my mono white deck The Wrath

I think after this recent reprinting, Karmic Guide qualifies as pretty budget, and she is great enter-the-battlefield spirit fun.

Hey, Karmic Guide is a helpful budget creature with Alesha. Alesha reanimates Karmic and then Karmic lets you reanimate any creature and that creature doesn't enter the battlefield attacking. Karmic also gets back into your graveyard to reanimate again when you don't pay the echo cost at your next upkeep.

Sac outlets let you reuse creatures by getting them back into your graveyard to reanimate again with Alesha. This is important with Master of Cruelties to be able to cheat him onto the battlefield with Alesha again attacking. A couple of the better budget sac outlets are Goblin Bombardment and Viscera Seer.

If you add Murderous Redcap then you have a combo with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Alesha can reanimate this combo. Add Viscera Seer as the sac outlet who Alesha can reanimate for an infinite damage to opponents combo by repeatedly sacing Redcap and persist does the rest. Karmic Guide is helpful with combo like this because you don't want Anafenza or Seer to enter the battlefield attacking instead you just want to reanimate them.

You have a good package cards for looting as well as tutoring for creature putting it into your graveyard. Anger is a nice card with these effects to give Alesha haste.

Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Exotic Orchard, Furycalm Snarl, Shineshadow Snarl, Smoldering Marsh, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak are some budget land upgrades to consider.

Good luck with your deck.
