I love how no card goes to waste in this deck with exiling out your revealed cards for further value. Incredible build. I've run into Speaker a ton more while I've dipped my toes into Arena, and it's nasty with Resplendent Angel and Bishop of Wings .

I really like this theme, I have a similar one called Angel cleric lifegain from which I’m drawing suggestions.

The way I see it your win-condition is “gain lots of life and then attack with Angel of Destiny ”. So you need to gain lots of life.

I would go 4-of Righteous Valkyrie and Speaker of the Heavens , and add 4-of Bishop of Wings as another method to gain life when angels enter the battlefield. Then, I’d consider some cards for gaining life. Revitalize and Renewed Faith are both good, but I really love Rest for the Weary because you can easily turn on your Speaker on turn 2 and then start pumping out angels.

Other cards to consider include Resplendent Angel to add another angel each turn, Boon Reflection or Rhox Faithmender to double lifegain, or perhaps even Entreat the Angels as an alternative win-con that will also net you life if you have one of the many “gain life with angels” out on the battlefield.

trocroi Revitalize was my first choice but I settled for a non-instant speed option that’s why I picked Scroll of Avacyn because 5 health while having Resplendent Angel on the board and activating the artifact before my opponent’s turn ends immediately gives me an Angel. 80% of the time I have all the lands I need to activate it’s ability that’s why I picked the scroll over anything else. I’m definitely NOT adding the land, maybe Rest for the Weary but I need to figure out what to take out.

  • Hm it doesnt seem to have a consistent plan nor a legit format. I would suggest to go for modern since it has a lot of cards in its pool and is the most common 60 cards format besides standard. I am an Angels Deck builder since 6 years, so i have a couple of suggestions. Of course that doesnt mean that you have to change something, i mean it is just a suggestion and all the mentioned cards wont fit anyway in a 60 cards deck. Try to make it more consistent if needed by playing 4-of or tutor effects.

  • Since you mentioned your friend plays burn, i will give you some cards that will make your winrate nearly 100% against burn. Burn has barely no chance against lifegain decks. Angels can be build in a lifegain way, which i am personally no fan of but many are, so here we go.

  • If you want to check out a non lifegain modern Angel deck, you can check out Devotion to White Angels.

so i wanted to get everyones opinions regarding how wotc seems to be treating these 2 creature types.

the upcoming set Kaldheim has already entered spoiler season, and i've seen 4 different angels at cmc 3 or less. they are "renegade reaper", "youthful valkyrie", "resplendent marshall", and "righteous valkyrie". one had a cmc of 2. another was black. all within Collected Company range, and all benefit from the "dump as many onto the battlefield as possible" strategy that Collected Company provides.

the reaper fuels the grave for the marshal. the reaper and righteous valkyrie will both be gaining you life ensuring the valkyrie gets her anthem.

abzan angels company? its possible. pioneer gives us Angel of Vitality for even more life gain, and Resplendent Angel to profit off that life gain.

in the entire game, there are 14 angels that cost 3 or less. 10 of which are legal in modern, and 5 for pioneer. this is before kaldheim of course.

for dragons, there are 6 total. all 6 are in modern, but only 5 for pioneer. and most suck.

am i asking too much for dragons in Collected Company range? my favorite creature type and my pet card in one deck. if angels at cmc 3 or less can have 4 toughness, or 3 toughness while gaining +1/+1 counters (meaning they pass the Lightning Bolt test), then dragons should too.

i'd love to see a rare dragon like:

flying, first strike, trample firebreathing 3/4

there have been some dragon related cards spoiled, but no actual dragons just yet. what do you guys think? do we need more cheap dragons? how likely do you think it is we will get them?
