Lyra Dawnbringer occurrence in decks from the last year
Lyra Dawnbringer Discussion

Angel Tribal is something that I love to see done!
A few things I would add: Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer, Mass Calcify, Luminarch Ascension, Resplendent Angel and Seraph of Dawn. I have made a few Angel tribal decks in a few different formats (mostly edh), and I find that these cards work quite well with Angel tribal. Just my own opinion, of course. The deck is ultimately yours. Looks Great!

I have noticed that the mouse-over for my Commanders is behaving oddly. Sometimes it works properly (Emiel the Blessed, Kels, Fight Fixer, Lyra Dawnbringer) and sometimes only a small section of the card appears, blown up to fill the whole allotted area (Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Riku of Two Reflections, Meren of Clan Nel Toth). I have not yet gone through all of my Commanders, but I have not found a specific trigger for what makes it fail.

You have a couple lands that might come in tapped, but in my opinion Amulet of Vigor isn't giving you enough value, a blocker sometimes, or a mana sometimes. In playing, I would count the number of activates and utility. Did it untap a permanent (y/n), and did you end up utilizing that untapped (y/n). If yy <= 50% it should go.
What about a Bloodgift Demon for some extra draw, or good ole Phyrexian Arena since you need to refill your hand for Strionic Resonator. Demonlord Belzenlok I also prefer over either of those, since he ETB draws, sometimes 2 cards.
Hellkite Tyrant is really nice, can accumulate mana rocks.
The talisman's are very cheap, and the best 2-mana rocks Talisman of Hierarchy / Talisman of Conviction / Talisman of Indulgence, superior to the Signets (except Arcane Signet) and an upgrade to Commander's Sphere. Fellwar Stone also isn't bad, but Chromatic Lantern has it's upside too.
Hall of the Bandit Lord can give you another haste. It enters tapped, so it's not the greatest.
A tutor package would allow you to reduce the number of ADD, taking out the lower power ones, and tutoring the higher power ones, it creates a more consistent play, but also takes away the fun of that randomness.
Staff of Nin is high cost, go Phyrexian Arena CMC3, Necropotence draw a bunch or Bloodgift Demon CMC1 cheaper and can be free cast with Kaalia of the Vast instead. Bloodgift Demon is the slowest of the bunch.
Tyrant's Familiar doesn't trigger off the turn that Kaalia of the Vast plays him, since he enters tapped an attacking. So unless you hard casting for CMC7, your not getting the benefit from him and only hits creatures, there are a variety of other dragons that hit any target. Bogardan Hellkite. Theres the new M21 dragon Terror of the Peaks, he doesn't ETB himself (boo) although, but under a Ghostway could be a win.
Angelic Skirmisher doesn't trigger properly with Kaalia of the Vast, I could see it being a finisher perhaps the next turn, but if it's really connecting for value (2+ big creatures), is it just unnecessary mass overkill vs. something like a Hellkite Tyrant which delivers immediate value as an example. I'll often Wishclaw Talisman a Hellkite Tyrant with a Kaalia of the Vast trigger on the stack and steal back my Wishclaw Talisman.
Hope you find something helpful or to think about!

DemonDragonJ: I'm not feeling like Baneslayer is going to be overpowered. Afterall, we already had Lyra Dawnbringer, and while that was powerful it wasn't dominating standard the same way other cards we have seen printed recently are.
I guess the meta might have changed enough?

Hermit Druid is really good at filling up your graveyard and will keep you stocked on lands. I just saw that he has spiked like crazy in the past week tho..
I personally like Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty, as they can all are pretty good when you need to cast something. Shalai can protect your graveyard from Bojuka Bog and stops opponents from targeting Kathril before his ability resolves.

Hiya! Long time Boros player, hope I can help.
1) Your deck has almost no ways to generate consistent card advantage. Running practically zero ways to generate card advantage is not a good idea in EDH as you'll run out of gas and/or be blown out by a boardwipe. On top of that, a few more pieces of ramp would be really useful in the deck. How has Empowered Autogenerator been when you played it? In theory it doesn't look like a very good piece of ramp since it takes too long to get going. Unless it's been playing exceptionally well, I'd recommend replacing it with Thran Dynamo. If not, I recommend cutting something else for a copy of Thran Dynamo- the card is exactly what your mana-hungry deck wants.
2) The mana-curve of this deck is all over the place. I recommend you take the time to balance it out- it's really heavy in some cmc's and super light at other cmc slots.
3) You want it to be a human-angel tribal deck, but I don't see any tribal payoffs besides Herald of War, Lyra Dawnbringer, and Bishop of Wings. If you're going to restrict yourself to a tribal deck, might as well get some benefit out of it! You've got the angel count, now you're gonna want a way to take advantage of the fact that you're playing a bunch of big angels. I'd put in either more pay-off cards or more ways to tutor your current pay-off cards since Lyra Dawnbringer and Bishop of Wings are legitimately really good pay-offs.

I'd swap out Faithbearer Paladin for Lyra Dawnbringer in your maybe board if you already own it. They are the same CMC, Lyra adds flying and first strike, is a bigger body, and is an angel lord as well (which pairs well with your 11 other angels).

Hiya! Long time Aurelia player here, hope I can help out!
The first thing I see- you have 15 pieces of hard ramp in your deck, but only 31 lands. Especially considering your mana-curve, 31 lands is not enough. I suggest upping your land count to 38 and cutting a handful of ramp cards as you have so many. In particular, I don't think you need Seer's Lantern, especially considering you already have a copy of Sensei's Divining Top. I also don't think you need Walking Atlas as you don't have enough lands to support it consistently. In addition, if you want to pump out big angels, you'll want to have ramp that really puts you ahead. In particular, Thran Dynamo is an excellent choice to get you from 4 mana to 8 (provided you hit you land drop, which you want to do every turn).
The next thing- your deck's ways of generating card advantage aren't very consistent, they generate it typically in ways like getting lands to your hand, tutoring, making tokens, etc. Only 3 of them actually increase the amount of cards in general you have access to. You do have some of the best ones though like Mask of Memory, Magus of the Wheel, and Tectonic Giant (I typically count impulsive draw, the exile and you can play for the next turn as card draw since it practically increases your hand size). Mask of Memory is one of the best ways to draw cards in any aggressive deck- the problem is, you need smaller creatures to stick it on early so you don't have to wait- and the cmc of your creatures is really high. If you want to go angel reanimator with your deck, wheel effects is the best card draw for your deck. You already have a copy of Magus of the Wheel, you might also want to include Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate. The caution with Wheel of Fate is that it's awful late game. And of course, when you can afford it, Wheel of Fortune is the best- it's the original after all.
I would also balance your mana-curve. It's high in some places and really low in others.
Last of all, some cards I recommend. Winds of Abandon is one of the best pieces of removal for EDH that has been printed in a while. I definitely recommend adding it in. Heliod's Intervention is also incredible. If you need more tutors for equipment, Steelshaper's Gift is the best you can get. Lyra Dawnbringer is a great angel for angel tribal. Blasphemous Act is one of the best boardwipes in Boros colors for EDH.
Let me know if you need any more help! I also recommend DespairFaction. He has a YouTube channel known as Commander Replay and also has plenty of great decks here on tappedout.
