Glad to see that the deck is working out well so far! It seems like it runs similarly enough to my Rule 0 Serra the Benevolent deck, so I know how the satisfaction from playing it must feel!

I did have another recommendation, though. While scrolling through cards for my WIP Isshin deck, I came across Herald of the Host. It's Myriad attack trigger will drop an angel token tapped and attacking EACH opponent. The tokens may die at the end of combat, but the counters that they'll add with Giada could be a massive tempo swing!

Serra the Benevolent feels like an auto-include in every single Giada deck.

Wow! I didn't know about Harsh Mercy, and I love one-sided board wipes. I'll definitely find some place to put that one. I also had planned to put Vanquisher's Banner in only to forget it again, so thanks for reminding me! Serra the Benevolent is one I thought about too since this is the natural commander deck to put her in, but it also slipped my mind. And Finale of Glory could be good. I was originally going to run Entreat the Angels and Starnheim Unleashed, and this is a third effect for those though we only get the angels at twelve mana, which is a lot. Thanks foe some great suggestions!

Incredibly well written as always, my friend! Giada is definitely a boon to angel decks and mono-white decks alike. She's definitely going into my Rule 0 Serra deck for sure!

The only suggestions I have are maybe Serra the Benevolent for her tokens and buffs, Finale of Glory (may be a win more card, though) and Ajani's Welcome as a third "soul-sister". Oh! And possibly Vanquisher's Banner?

@GofyTomcat1 I hear you. I like your suggestions a lot! This deck is kinda not really sure what it wants to be at this point.... i actually had the intent for this to be considered a "Midrange" build but it keeps becoming a bad control deck lol... Serra the Benevolent was/is supposed to be the center of the deck though!

Serra Angel.... or Serra the Benevolent?

In my opinion the power level of Magic has had peaks and valleys over the years ive been playing... Super powered sets like mirridion block... then there was the original kamigawa block (admittedly has powerful card in it but the block as a whole...sheesh!)...

But it seems ever since the M15/Magic Origins "reboot of Magic The Gathering" its just been constantly getting more and more powerful.... look at the cards that see play in eternal formats.... Granted Modern now has "Modern Horizons" sets/cards printed straight into the format now... but besides that many of the cards that see competitive play are pretty much pioneer legal cards.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury holds a special place to me because she was the first commander I built. There was just something engaging about an old school mythical being who came back as a planeswalker. I also love Serra the Benevolent so yeah, they have my number doing this : ) But, over time, I've also really come to appreciate how Freyalise plays in the game. She's not a flashy commander, and I have maybe strictly better ones like Selvala or Ezuri for the deck, but Freyalise has the unique place in the deck that she will always do what you need to do from the command zone. It's not uncommon to ult her from populate effects, and she makes mana, elfs, or can just be a Naturalize if you are in a pinch. Which, in a deck that burns mana like tissue paper, a five mana enchant/artifact removal in the command zone feels great : ) I love versatility, and maybe it was playing elfball that really made me that way.
