NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: Initially, this was meant to be a Mayael the Anima deck all around; even conforming to newer; & better standards. Then, after several thoughts over her, I wanted to make a WAY better Mayael the Anima -Deck. Atla Palani, Nest Tender was just that. Saccing Eggs to find some of the Most Powerful that Mayael can also do. But I believe that after what I get after all this, Mayael will only be an Afterthought. Questions? Well, here we go...
Q1: In terms of Range of Power; The Magic No. is 4 Power. Namely Stuff w/ Great Effects; 4+ Powered Powerhouses, & just great effects. What do you think is the best out of the ones Printed as of currently? There are so many, I can't mention them all...
Q2: Oh, almost forgot. Assuming the Sac Engines needed to make Egg Tokens that create Monsters w/ incredible power, what exactly would you want to cut & proceed? Also: SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE. (As of this update: this has 127 Cards now.)
Q3: While I've an optimal amount of Instants, I have much fewer SORCERIES. Does this deck need anymore of them, or is it just fine?
Q4 FINAL: The whole purpose of this deck is to bring an entire army to the table in ONE TURN. Since this is /Naya/AGGRO, I want to know your thoughts for how to do it through sacking Eggs & bringing Fat to life in Adult Form. Based on these terms; how would you do this?
Finally, I have to ask: Am I doing too many Help Wanted Deck Help Threads? I'm just curious; that & I couldn't remember what I was initially going to say; that, & I'm apparently doing too little to help my case of trying all I can to help my problems; & from there, for such great people like you.
Hope this helps! :D

heyzeus_ It's been a while since I've updated this deck and asked for your advice, but this is the completed deck! I don't actually own all these cards. Those cards being Admonition Angel , Angel of Jubilation , Baneslayer Angel , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Cavern of Souls , and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Other than that i'm both sad and happy to have this deck be my very expensive baby. One problem though, I need to remove one card out of this deck and I don't really know what to choose. The one thing this deck does very well is ramp which is surprising for mono white. It also gains life very easily when there are angels out. But it didn't have card draw, which I'm hoping the artifacts fixed that problem. I don't want to remove any of the artifacts or enchantments everything else I'm open to. The only cards I can think of removing is Exquisite Archangel or Reya Dawnbringer .

Neat deck! I'm always impressed by good builds with a tight budget. You might consider trying these: Mantle of Leadership , Wall of Blood , Conclave's Blessing , Murder Investigation , Custodi Soulcaller , Woebearer , Regna, the Redeemer , Reya Dawnbringer , Mimic Vat (not sure if this one counts, but it is available on tcgplayer for ~70c right now)

Reya Dawnbringer can definitely go. Suuuper high mana cost & if you're relying on her to fetch creatures the game is probably over anyway.
Bruna, the Fading Light is also extremely high mana cost for a relatively weak ability (compared to cost anyway); and that'd let you drop both Gisela, the Broken Blade . Melding creatures are generally not optimal without a way to search your library for the other half. It's a lot of deck space and mana cost & you can easily win with your other angels well before then.
I'm also not a huge fan of Exquisite Archangel . Her effect is rather good, but I see this card playing better in a Two-Headed Giant game where your starting life is higher than 20. 20 damage is really not a whole lot, and if you're at a point in the game where you're using her exile ability to survive, it's not likely you'll be able to pull ahead even with an extra 20 life.
So, 1 Reya, 1 Bruna, 2 Gisela, and 1 Exquisite Archangel ~~ That's 5 cards freed up right there (as well as dropping some of your higher mana cost cards)

subiskier: Glad you like it! Yeah, getting Kaalia swinging quickly is definitely important, though I'm not really a huge fan of Hanweir Battlements , Slayers' Stronghold , and most other lands that give haste. Effectively paying 2 or 3 mana is a pretty big tax on getting Kaalia out, and I rarely find myself in a situation where I'm really wanting to pay it. I used to run Flamekin Village in the deck, but I swapped it out for Hall of the Bandit Lord which seems to work way better as you're not really paying anything extra other than it entering tapped. As for Fervor , I've actually been looking into slotting in Dragon Tempest (which is almost strictly better in this deck) but I haven't really decided what I'm willing to take out for it yet. Swiftfoot Boots is definitely a good card, and worth running alongside Lightning Greaves , but at a 5 mana investment I'm not too fond of Whispersilk Cloak . Thanks for the comment, and good luck to you too!
loricatuslupus: Thanks! I agree, I love creature decks much more than combos and Kaalia seems like one of the few that is aggressive enough to have a consistent chance at outpacing them. In my personal meta it's rather rare for there to not be any player without a flyer that Kaalia can safe swing at, so I'm not really too concerned about preventing blocking or damage effects with things like Dust Corona and Dolmen Gate . However, I actually have been thinking about adding Reconnaissance to the deck for a while (and probably would've already if I could find a copy locally) due to it's amazing value in both giving Kaalia safe triggers and pseudo-vigilance to all of my creatures. As for Chromatic Lantern , I actually used to run it in the deck (most of the maybe board is cards I ran at one time but later cut) but I just found that it wasn't very helpful. My mana base is stable enough at this point that I very rarely am in need of it's fixing, and at 3 cmc it doesn't really help me ramp Kaalia out. The initial goal of the deck is always have Kaalia swinging on turn 4 at the latest (ideally turn 2 or 3), and 2 cmc rocks like Sphere of the Suns just do a much better job at accomplishing that. Dark Ritual has done pretty well for me, I think. It allows for some pretty explosive early turns in either getting an extra rock out or ramping out Kaalia up to 2 turns earlier. Even late game I can usually find some use for it to stretch out my mana for more valuable turns. While temple lands are arguable some of the better taplands, I personally would not run them if I don't have to as taplands significantly reduce the speed of the deck and are detrimental to my plan of getting Kaalia out as quickly as possible. I used to run Reya Dawnbringer but I found that she was often either stuck without a target, or removed before she could do anything. I cut her in an attempt to shift away from effects like hers where you have to wait a turn to get anything out of them, and towards things that give immediate value upon entering/hitting. Also there's already enough times where I have Animate Dead or Reanimate in my hand with no good targets that I don't really think I'm in need of more recursion right now. Never really been a fan of Adarkar Valkyrie as her ability seems a bit underwhelming to me, especially when you have to wait a turn to use her as well. They're both alright cards, but if I ran them it would be solely for the synergy with a couple of cards like Razaketh, the Foulblooded that you mentioned, and that's not really worth it for me. Thanks for the comment and suggestions, and good luck with your own deck as well!

Hey just saw your deck and I like the theme you have going. I made my own version with a focus on cheating in bigger creatures and a flying sub-theme where I (hopefully) never have to pay full CMC for things. I thought a few cards that might be useful to you from there are Bladewing the Risen , Reya Dawnbringer , Exhume , Faithless Looting , Sensei's Divining Top . I plan to use your decklist for inspiration to adjust my own!
If you wanted to check mine out I would love the feedback, i can be your angle...or yuor demon...or ur dragon

Increasing Devotion is really fun in this deck. Liliana, Dreadhorde General gives me Krav fodder. Living Death is good recursion. Another fun card would be Oath of Lieges . If you want fast tokens and some fun stuff - Parhelion II . I think Reya Dawnbringer could be good in this deck. I do like this a lot - it is not my style but this is clearly well thought out.
If you want to see how I built them, check out my Forbidden Love deck.
