I enjoy mono white equipment vultron in edh. I have run many over the years starting from the forged in stone starter edh deck and this deck reminds me I need to update my current brew (balan is at the helm).

I'd recommend looking into ramp. Legion's Landing  Flip Windbrisk Heights Oketra's Monument Loyal WarhoundGauntlet of Power just to name a few.

I'd revisit which equipment you run. Example Godsend Batterskullis fun. But generally bad in edh in my play testing. Blackblade Reforged highly recommended

Removal. This is gonna be meta dependent you seem kinda light on removal. Another boardwipe might be good only especially is kinda rough. I'd suggest something like Balancing ActOndu Inversion  FlipTragic ArroganceDusk / Dawn or a power toughness based wipe that keeps your weenies. (Erase a better demystify)

Suntitan Nahiri, the Lithomancer or other recursion. I know you are trying to play the aggressive game but a long term plan is always good.

Meta dependent but running silence? Much better in1v1 unless you are using it to stop a combo or stop interaction with your combo.

Tutors perhaps to make a Xtra copy of a few of your cards Search for Glory or Thalia's Lancers would hit lands artifact and even elspeth

Perhaps more lands 30 is kinda low 34 is the lowest I go. If you can't find what to cut for it look onto the BFZ flip lands for utility that can also be lands like Ondu Inversion  Flip

Other cards I just suggest that I like: Dawn of Hope Brave the ElementsJazal Goldmane Crescendo of War

TheBubbaEA It really depends on your playgroup's meta when considering certain strategies. If your group has a lot of board wipes 3.45 will be too slow and hard to rebuild a board state if you are hard casting all your creatures. For me personally I like explosive turns so I find ways to generate a lot of tokens or cheat out a bunch of creatures near the end game (in my playgroup turn 10+). For example using effects like Omniscience , Rise of the Dark Realms .

If you do choose to go more aggro angels may not be the best option due to their avg high cmc. But if you do stick with angels a couple other cards worth considering would be:

  1. Herald of War
  2. Herald's Horn
  3. Oketra's Monument
  4. Warden of Evos Isle
  5. The Book of Exalted Deeds
  6. Thraben Watcher
  7. Righteous Valkyrie
  8. Valkyrie Harbinger
  9. (There are other cards with similar effect)
  10. Bishop of Wings
  11. Speaker of the Heavens
  12. Geist of Saint Traft

Some other cards I like, although may not be quite right for this deck:

  1. Basri Ket (For that -2) similar to Launch the Fleet
  2. Basri's Lieutenant
  3. Luminous Broodmoth
  4. Brought Back
  5. Storm Herd (Very high cmc but high reward when paired with Odric, Lunarch Marshal + Akroma, Vision of Ixidor )
  6. Well of Lost Dreams

Some white staples(some are quite expensive):

  1. Smothering Tithe
  2. Mangara, the Diplomat
  3. Esper Sentinel
  4. Land Tax
  5. Felidar Retreat
  6. Keeper of the Accord
  7. Archaeomancer's Map
  8. Verge Rangers

Sorry only white cards come to mind as I myself was building a mono white angels deck.

Grubbernaut, I see why you suggest Trophy Mage (tutor Oketra's Monument ). It's worth considering-- thanks!

Chandra's Incinerator is basically a one-sided board wipe

Young Pyromancer one of the best token generators ever printed, Mogg War Marshal isn't as good but still can be three creatures for two mana with reanimator synergy. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame gives temporary token but they still get the job done considering they are sac fodder.

Oketra's Monument , Monastery Mentor , Hero of Precinct One , Sedgemoor Witch , and Desecrated Tomb give back a bit of your commanders cost. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder generates 4 tokens every time you cast your commander since it counts as a creature spell with 4 cmc.

Zulaport Cutthroat and Cruel Celebrant are mini purphoros in this deck

Village Rites is just a good value card draw, same with Grim Haruspex .

Hey BrassLord! Thanks for stopping by with some suggestions.

Kogla seems like a very good card, I'm trying to find a place for it in my Atla deck as well.

Oketra's Monument is interesting, I think it just might find a home here!

I looked at the Shaman for a while in the making of this deck, and decided in the end that I would add it if I decided to splurge here. Definitely a good one.

Esika's Chariot is good but likely too slow. As much as I want more cat tokens in my life, I think that one's gonna be passed by.

When I do some play testing irl against actual opponents (still in the goldfishing phase atm), I'll decide if Myth Unbound will go in or not. It's certainly a good suggestion, I never remember that card!

The Ranger is another one I had to consider, still unsure on it.

I'd love a Great Henge or five, but if I do pick one up it'll probably go into Atla.

Not sure about Eldrazi Monument , it'd definitely do some work in the wincon category but it doesn't fit the current Overwhelming Stampede strat. I'll do some playtesting with it.

I always appreciate you making me think more about these decks I make, never ceases to expand my brain ;)

Cool deck idea! Glad that commander is getting some love!

Some interesting things to look at. Kogla, the Titan Ape has some interesting synergies with your commander. Oketra's Monument can help explode your board presence in the early game, and any of the token doubling enchantments seems equally good! It might not gel extremely well, but Shaman of Forgotten Ways is a mana dork that can also be a wincon. Esika's Chariot seems right up the decks alley, as it makes tokens and can copy your tokens as well! Myth Unbound also seems decent if you start running into targeted removal. Quirion Ranger also works with your tapping and untapping plan!

If it's in your budget The Great Henge goes really well with all your mana dorks! Also Eldrazi Monument seems like it would be good with your source of repeated creature making!
