Authority of the Consuls would be pretty great instead of Hero of Bladehold because something that punishes opponents such as stax is great for a control deck, especially in Orzhov which is my color and I could also see Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Blind Obedience, or Smothering Tithe to really punish your opponents. I like the deck but it could do with some tweeks.

Plenty of good cards in your build. With Angel tribal you have a high avg CMC. 3.64 is slow, and I think you would benefit by having at least 3-4 more rocks in the deck. Urza's Incubator is great but your creature count may be too low to make good use of it. Consider the Talismans, Signets, and Medallions. I also like Smothering Tithe but it's a bit slow, but that's RW for ya. Almost nobody every pays to deny you the token. I love Repercussion - one of my favorite commander cards.

I would suggest adding more ramp and mana rocks. Things like Thran Dynamo, Armillary Sphere, Boros Signet, or Boros Locket would be really good here as you are in Boros. Smothering Tithe would be ideal, but it's rather pricey. I would also put in more removal. Generous Gift, Path to Exile, and Swords to Plowshares are all great options. Molten Disaster and Earthquake would be good board wipes as you do have a lot of flying. Also, is Shalai, Voice of Plenty legal in this deck? She has green in her text. Overall, solid deck for something that you must have just thrown together.

cfost827 You don't lose too much consistently without Scrubland. It shouldn't matter. I've tried Smothering Tithe a few times, and it's decent, but it's too slow for me personally. I'd include it with Revel in Riches if I wanted that package or if your meta is heavy blue/draw oriented. I also wouldn't skimp on Ophiomancer. I underestimated her at first, but if you play a few games of her, you'll see just how much value she pumps out with sac outlets. I play Blinkmoth Nexus because it's cheap sac fodder at best and a colorless land that can chump block at worst. However, the cool thing about aristocrats is that there's so much redundancy that any few cuts likely won't matter. You can customize the deck to your liking, especially since it's hard to say what's the absolute best. This isn't cEDH after all.

Thanks, shwanerz88. I think I agree on those two draw spells. I subbed in Force of Will and Cryptic Command. Now just need two more cuts, lol. Also thinking about bringing Smothering Tithe in, but would need another cut from the draw package. Thanks, again!
