Ranger-Captain of Eos Discussion

Mother of Runes is good for some redundancy and can help protect against exile effects or push through damage. I've actually enjoyed Hushbringer - made this korvald player a bit salty. Karn, the Great Creator - can be a combo piece or help you get key artifacts out of exile. Serra Ascendant - helps with early game pressure. Lastly, Ranger-Captain of Eos is a little guy Tutor with built in silence :)

Grand Abolisher can help a lot against control decks and suits the devotion plan as well. If you face control often, you can also include other anti control cards. Fell free to experiment with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Favor of the Mighty, 4x Cavern of Souls, Giver of Runes, Greater Auramancy, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Pristine Angel, Voice of All, Pentarch Ward, Spectra Ward. Control has always the upper hand over you, this helps to bind their hands.
Luminous Broodmoth it's not an Angel and you control not enough non flyers that are worth to keep alive. You can run a creature only strategy. I suggest you look at death and taxes decks and draw inspiration from there.
Angels do not synergize with anything. You play Angels only because you like Angels not for competitive reasons. There is an option for a lifegain Angels deck (I'm working on it right now) but it uses very different kind of Angels Angel of Vitality, Resplendent Angel, Archangel of Thune, Lyra Dawnbringer and a lot of 1 life passive trigger cards.
If you add another color or colorless, you destroy the devotion plan. Therefore you need another strategy to get Angels out. See "Other strategies" in description

Things that synergize with white's effects like counters with Mindless Automaton, lifegain with Well of Lost Dreams, and tokens or small dudes with Skullclamp, that or Sword of Fire and Ice for equipment strategies, Smuggler's Copter and Bonders' Enclave for other strategies.
And in white, after looking it up for Omniscience_is_life, here is my new, semi-educated package:
Land Tax, Mangara, the Diplomat, Alms Collector, Weathered Wayfarer, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Sram, Senior Edificer, Stonehewer Giant, Dawn of Hope, Puresteel Paladin, Mentor of the Meek, Bygone Bishop, Luminarch Ascension, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Sun Titan, Sevinne's Reclamation, Ranger of Eos, and Castle Ardenvale
Not to mention tutors being Weathered Wayfarer/Ranger of Eos being tutors, alongside Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Recruiter of the Guard, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Academy Rector, Arena Rector, Call the Gatewatch, Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Heliod's Pilgrim, Quest for the Holy Relic, Three Dreams, Boonweaver Giant, Auratouched Mage, Djeru, With Eyes Open, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Thalia's Lancers, Totem-Guide Hartebeest, Relic Seeker, Priest of the Wakening Sun, Forerunner of the Legion, Ignite the Beacon, Plea for Guidance, Kithkin Harbinger, etc.
Oh, and there is more, just look!

Have you considered cheaper payoff cards like Speaker of the Heavens over Bloodthirsty Aerialist? Maybe Ranger of Eos or Ranger-Captain of Eos to tutor some of your many 1-cmc creatures. Also I would think going into BW would be for more controlly cards, since im not sure how good Banehound, Blood Scrivener and Bloodthirsty Aerialist are. If you want extra removal, you can add Fatal Push. For extra tokens besides Spectral Procession, theres Lingering Souls. And for more hand control you could add Tidehollow Sculler instead of Thoughtseizes (since you can curve out a turn 1 SS and a turn 2 sculler)

Daveslab2022, very nice. I do have concerns about removing the playset of Ranger-Captain of Eos from this deck, especially in a control and burn heavy meta. My primary concern is with consistency, being a Death's Shadow deck means being able to reliability play him every game. Resolving Ranger-Captain means I am even less reliant on simple luck or statistical probability. I know four spells with double white Mana isn't the ideal situation in a aggro deck, but this guy is just a fantastic early and late game card; so much so that I consider it a staple.

The biggest critique I have for this deck is that it doesn't have Walking Ballista. If you're playing Heliod in mono white with Ranger-Captain of Eos, you should always play the infinite combo that goes with it. I'd cut Legion's Landing Flip for a couple copies since it's your weakest card, then fill out the playset if you are willing to shave some copies of other cards (probably Honor of the Pure since you don't have too many token shenanigans going on).
Next: cut one of each soul sister to play two more Auriok Champion. The card is extremely good in the current meta. Difficult to remove, great at blocking, etc.
