Totally on board with a non-Modern version! Personally I was going to build mine as a casual deck.

I saw your updated description, and unfortunately, Brave the Elements doesn't protect against Wrath of God, since Wrath neither targets nor damages.

A couple options that do work: Unbreakable Formation provides instant-speed protection when you need it, but at sorcery speed, it makes for a potent offensive card, with that permanent buff and vigilance. Unfortunately, between Formation and Wrath, that's 7 mana in one turn, which is pretty steep.

Frontline Medic is similar to Selfless Spirit in that, once it's out, it's a free activation to gain indestructible. There's obviously pros and cons to each — 3 mana vs 2, repeatable vs single use, waiting a turn to attack vs available the turn you play it, keeping the creature vs sac'ing it, restricted to combat vs instant-speed — so it cones down to your personal playstyle and preferences (or I guess, your partner's).

Gingervitis on Avacyn's Angelic Justice

Love the description and I love Archangel Avacyn  Flip as a card!

Also, I have noticed that there aren't too many ways of triggering Avacyn's flip effect. I do see that there is Selfless Spirit and you could do something with the tokens gained from Hanweir Garrison, but other than that I don't really see many non-Angel creatures dying.

There are a lot of self sacrifice cards that are red or white that can help you get that flip effect off, such as Generator Servant or Benevolent Bodyguard to name a few.

If you really don't care about getting Avacyn's effect off, then ignore this comment.

Heres my Voltron deck that does somewhat the same thing as this deck except it has more of a focus on equipping Avacyn and wrecking everything. Avacyn, the Commander

Cool deck!

Gadianten on Orzhov Inquisition (WB Cleric Tribal)

I am glad to be seeing more cleric tribal decks starting to show up, it seems the solid increase in cleric legendary prints has really helped. In my own experiments with tribal clerics, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim being my original cleric commander, have found that clerics excel in defense, resurrection and life gain but not offense compared to tribes like soldier and goblin tribal. That in mind I do have some recommendations to help maximize their potential.

Beat Sticks and offense: You have Doubtless One and Vile Deacon but don't forget to add Custodi Soulbinders and Mikaeus, the Lunarch to round out the heavy hitters. But there is more to offensive then just beat sticks, so I would consider Frontline Medic for no fear attacks and non cleric offensive aids like Reconnaissance, Dolmen Gate and Cover of Darkness to keep the clergy moving and Tymna earning her keep. From my experience in using Tymna you need evasion to keep drawing cards as trample is scarce in tribe. If you are feeling savage you can try Archangel of Thune and with the life gain available to the tribe it can get hilarious fast.

Card Draw: Most tribal decks I see have the same weakness and its card draw, even with Tymna the Weaver you can still get ground down to a halt, avoid that with some in tribe options to fuel the attack like Bygone Bishop, Custodi Lich, Twilight Prophet, Mangara, the Diplomat, Alms Collector, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Yawgmoth is a must have in my opinion as he removes the sting out of board wipes and allows removal if you really need it and can even discard one of your cards for reanimation abuse as well.

Defensive Options: Clerics probably have the best defenses out of all the tribes and at very low costs, some options I you should consider are Devoted Caretaker, Giver of Runes, Selfless Spirit and Songstitcher if fliers are a problem for you.

Tricks and Value Combos: An amusing combo I have played with before and found pretty funny was Hedron-Field Purists or Daunting Defender along with Pestilence. It can take a bit to assemble but is pretty funny when you do. Another value combo is Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Ancestor's Prophet.

Resurrection: To many options to list but I would recommend looking through the large amounts available and pack as many as you can in to increase endurance and grind opponents down. I can say from experience this can really clinch a victory.

Hey man, love the deck! Flyers are always fun, and the Monty Python reference is great. Anyways, here's some suggestions:

Inniaz, the Gale Force: Trade away your mana rocks for some sweet payoffs, play your opponents like a fiddle, and get in for big damage. Wheee!

Watcher of the Spheres: Discounts on your creatures, what more do you want?

Selfless Spirit: I know you've considered it, but seeing as you're a creature toolbox deck, it's nice to have some protection.

Also, sorry about not responding sooner, I've been studying for a big test. Hope these suggestions help, and as always, Happy Tapping!

Sultai_Sir card is meh and hasn't been relevant or good in a while tbh. I could play Selfless Spirit which does the same thing and is a spirit, but it doesn't help with the intended grindy playstyle or protect it from exile removal which is the bigger issue.

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit works well for persist combos. Selfless Spirit can be an early play that protects your team later and Heroic Intervention is another good protection card.
