Resplendent Angel Discussion

Here's some stuff that caught my attention over the past few sets. Dreadhorde Arcanist, Wishclaw Talisman (looks like you can activate, hold priority, and sac it. May be something for a new eggs combo deck idk) , Charming Prince (saw brief play, but Im thinking maybe use it in a taxes shell to get an Akroma, Angel of Fury out on turn 3 using vial), theres a cycle of cards like The Cauldron of Eternity (of which this one seems like a great card to get a Metalwork Colossus out with), Fae of Wishes (which saw brief play in places but may be cool in a control shell), theres Elvish Reclaimer (which could go in a variety of shells, especially a Spreading Algae deck that I really want to see made).
I would also suggest trying to take a look at the changes that have been seen by modern such as the mox ban. Maybe something you could look at is making an affinity deck with Arcbound Ravager among other classic cards that no longer have a home.
Some decks that Im working on right now that you may also like to work on are BG Undying (which has been a lot of fun and felt very good), and Stompy (which is not the most compelling, but is very underrated, and got some new toys.)
Hope some of this is of interest for you.

Competitive as possible with no infinite combos isn't competitive.... Now, that i have that off my chest, i have several ideas to add power to this deck. Bishop of Wings + Divine Visitation = lots of life and angels. Fiend Hunter+Angel of Glory's Rise= protection from most board wipes. Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan = infinite sac for altars like Ashnod's Altar or Altar of Dementia. Birthing Pod + your deck = tutor for any creature. Karmic Guide + Reveillark = infinite reanimation plus one extra creature, i recommend Eternal Witness. Skullwinder is another copy of Eternal Witness but adds politics. Field of the Dead just for the free token it produces. Giant Adephage and Polyraptor, you'll have to find clever ways of triggering them but once you do enjoy. Other than that Mox Amber, Teferi's Protection, Finale of Glory, Kodama's Reach, Finale of Devastation, Smothering Tithe, Resplendent Angel, Crested Sunmare, Zendikar's Roil, Awakening Zone, Sandwurm Convergence. To be more competitive it's all about curve and interaction. The only spells you want to be more than 3cmc are spells you plan to win with. everything else should push you towards the win condition you pick. cEDH decks tend to be a combo, lots of fast mana, every tutor in the colors, and 23-30 cards of 'stop my opponents.' If i had to pick one route though i like running Bishop of Wings, Protean Hulk, Divine Visitation and maybe Reap. Reap is only if your play group loves black. but basically get Protean Hulk kill it. search for Bishop of Wings and Academy Rector. kill Academy Rector to fetch Divine Visitation then start gaining life and making angels. i would include the Fiend Hunter + Angel of Glory's Rise trick in it and grab a few more humans that interact well or do powerful things. This can go infinite if you have a sac outlet but it isn't complicated to explain, uses four cards to start in most cases, and will end a game when you do it. The earliest you could do it from what i can tell is turn 5 but it's more likely your games will end between turn 10-15 which should keep your play group happy.

Awesome looking deck, I'm trying to do a similar strategy with a fine balance of token generation as well as lifegain. How efficient would you say the deck runs, especially in the card draw category? I often find myself a bit short, even though I seem to have plenty of sources. Outside of the reanimation effects of Mimic Vat and God-Pharaoh's Gift I'm not seeing too much token generation. Do you find this at all fragile in your play testing? I've been considering cards such as Luminarch Ascension, Resplendent Angel, God-Eternal Oketra, and Rampaging Baloths.

Hey, nice version of Avacyn, but do you really need all those other Angels?
Smothering Tithe is fantastic repeatable ramp for mono white in multiplayer Commander. Lyra Dawnbringer has very good interaction with Resplendent Angel; repeatable Angels with lifelink. Rather than play lots of other Angels consider more pillowfort? The problem with mono white is you want a lot of turns to get going since Avacyn is eight mana. You want a very good opening hand with ramp, but if you don't get that then having ways to slow your opponents down can help.
Other cards to consider adding:
- Luminarch Ascension
- Land Tax
- Blind Obedience
- Aura of Silence
- Ghostly Prison and/or Windborn Muse
- Rule of Law and/or Eidolon of Rhetoric
- Linvala, Keeper of Silence
- Aven Mindcensor
- Hushbringer and/or Hushwing Gryff
- Spirit of the Labyrinth
- Rest in Peace
- Heliod's Intervention
- Hour of Revelation
Cards to consider cutting:
- Unquestioned Authority
- Angel of Condemnation
- Angel of Finality
- Angel of the Dire Hour
- Exquisite Archangel
- Angel of Grace
- Guardian of the Gateless
- Resolute Archangel
- Segovian Angel
- Sunblast Angel
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, your deck doesn't show an official Commander because you didn't add the CMDR tag after the Aureila text in the deck editor.
Aurelia, the Warleader *CMDR*
There's 2x Path to Exile here ;) Command Tower and Battlefield Forge are good Boros lands. Ancient Tomb is helpful when playing high CMC Angels. Ancient Den and Great Furnace are worth adding to help metalcraft of Puresteel. Mistveil Plains and Tithe have great interaction with Sunforger. Mistveil can put the instant you cast with Sunforger back into your library to cast it again and Tithe can be cast by Sunforger to tutor for Mistveil.
Consider expanding on control with more pillowfort, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric? More pillowfort is good with Luminarch Ascension which is one of the best Angel cards, a repeatable source of instant creatures for control. Law/Rhetoric can help slow the game down which is helpful with control and to buy time to cast Angels. Law/Rhetoric is very good with Ascension.
Arcane Signet and Talisman of Conviction are Boros mana rocks. Pearl Medallion can do a lot since the majority of cards and Angels are white. Knight of the White Orchid is nice ramp for Boros and it can search for Mistveil or Foundry.
Emeria Angel doesn't create Angels, but she does create fliers and that's good with control. Getting repeatable value without paying mana is helpful with control. Resplendent Angel, three drop Angel who's very good with Lyra Dawnbringer and another potential repeatable source of Angels that doesn't cost mana.
Good luck with your deck.
