Sunblast Angel Discussion

@king-saprolingThx for you suggestions!
, but these were replaced, by imo better options or because they tend to draw aggro, or kill my opponents creatures.
- Master Warcraft i think maybe i should give it another chance, though it's a oneshot.
- Masako the Humorless is somewhat antisynegetic, as the deck is more about getting the opponents to beat each other up, rather than doing this myself.
- Godsend as tempting as this card seems in terms of rattlesnake, i think this might be more seen as an offensive tool. Also i'm not really equipmentheavy.
- Lapse of Certainty not really a fan of this one, personel preferance.
- Bloodthirsty Blade is already ordered, still no clue what to cut for it.

I think you'd like Unquestioned Authority . Like Traveler's Cloak, it makes Brago unblockable and can be flickered with his ability for extra draw. These might interest you too: Curator's Ward (protects Brago and gives extra draw when he flickers himself! You can flicker the Ward as well, but be sure to leave 1 creature unflicked so the Ward has somewhere to land), Sunblast Angel , Heliod's Pilgrim , Totem-Guide Hartebeest , Flickerform , Coveted Jewel , Mulldrifter , Cloudblazer , Prophetic Prism , Azorius Signet , Fellwar Stone , Tsabo's Web , Nevermaker , Sovereigns of Lost Alara

I'd suggest you correct the tags to show that this is a Casual deck, not standard. That way people aren't confused when searching for the deck!
Below I've included a few suggestions that might help guide your deck building process:
Playing 3/4 copies of a few cards instead of playing 1/2 copies of many cards will help to improve your consistency. This will also aid in determining which synergies you should strive to focus on. For example; if wanting to focus on using life-gain as a means to pump your creatures, I would run 4 copies of Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin type cards, and cut cards that don't work well with them such as Duskborne Skymarcher . A card that I would also include if going this route would be Ajani's Pridemate .
When it comes to determining what your deck's focus is, be sure to only include cards that will benefit that plan. For example; following the previously discussed strategy of pumping creatures lends itself well to an aggressive style build. You are looking to attack your opponent each turn, and for that reason your creatures will be tapped more often than not. Due to this, running a card like Sunblast Angel will only work against you. Your opponents will try to leave their creatures untapped to block yours, and when Sunblast Angel enters the battlefield, it may only end up destroying your side of the board. For that reason I would shy away from playing cards like this, regardless of their individual power level. Cards I would suggest instead would be more copies of creatures like Vampire of the Dire Moon or Impassioned Orator , as they provide a means for additional "Whenever you gain life" triggers.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you need help with any more changes.

There is certainly power and some wonderful cmc heavy interactions you have here. Depending on what your matchups are you will do quite well, especially with those evasive angels. Even against my stronger decks I could see issues when squared up 1v1 with this if I couldn't lock you out with tempo plays.
how well do you find yourself operating during midgame? does it feel like you get punished for swinging in? how consistently can you play your opening hands? Does my removal always feel ideal/versatile enough for my matchups? Does my commander feel impactful enough?
These would be the questions I would use to hone cuts and additions by.
My personal thoughts: Since there isn't much in the decklist dedicated to pumping/protecting Jenara, Asura of War , I would heavily consider using Derevi, Empyrial Tactician in lieu of her at the helm. Birb lets you manipulate the tempo of the board, giving your angels pseudo vig, the ability to untap lands, and the synergy with a potential Sunblast Angel is hilarious. Always having access to derevi for 4 mana always feels good, lets you punish any crackback, and with efficient rocks can be used to great efficiency.
If you wish to keep Jenara, Asura of War as the mander, I would recommend some low cmc cards to give her battlecruiser like synergies and leave your favorite angels as curvetoppers. Pir, Imaginative Rascal , Hardened Scales , Animation Module , heck even Rancor can be devastating in an opening hand with Jenara. Most Jenara, Asura of War decks i have squared up against have been extremely punishing control decks that win almost exclusively with commander damage.
overall, for either case I would recommend these cards:
Garruk Wildspeaker almost never gets removed, acts as an aggressive rock with surprisingly more evasion than artifacts most of the time. the overrun will serve you well
True Conviction is an absolute all star in my buddy's angel deck. just deletes everyone with a stable board.
Greater Good could help you get some value out of your key pieces being spot removed.
Aura Shards even if you aren't using that many bodies, is always an extremely political and welcome topdeck in almost any game.
That being said I am almost certain the deck runs quite well as is, it is more dependent on what you find lacking as you play amongst your meta. Lowering the curve usually always helps smooth things out, but as long as it runs and you are having fun you gotta do you :)

Harbruin — Thanks for the suggestion! I added it to the maybe list. I think I'd prefer Icy Blast to Gigadrowse , though. Yes, it's less mana-efficient, but between Sunblast Angel and Gideon's Avenger , I'm likely to trigger Ferocious.

Nesting Dragon - Random wrath protector
Rapacious Dragon - Good ETB effect if you consider adding more blink effects or ETB Doublers.
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury - Can be a good Finisher depending of your board state, since you can pay his Dash cost.
Hoarding Dragon - It is an Artifact tutor. It is risky, but it usually pays off if you have the right targets.
Demons - Mass Board Removal
Demon of Dark Schemes - Reanimator and mass removal in a single card. Your creatures usually dodge his minus/minus.
Rakdos, the Showstopper - More Risky, but can be a one sided mass removal on 6/6 flying trampler.
Angel of Finality - It is really important to have Gravehate in edh.
Sunblast Angel - Conditional one-sided wrath.
ETB, triggers doublers
Panharmonicon - Double all your ETBs effects, including Kaalia. Can be deadly if you prioritize ETBs effects among your creatures.
Flameshadow Conjuring - Act as a pseudo Panharmonicon that can "attack" and trigger some leave the battlefield effects. I think this card is a hidden gem in EDH. There is other cards that do this, such as Minion Reflector and Mirror March .
Strionic Resonator - It doubles one of your triggers. It also works with combat triggers and die triggers.
Conjurer's Closet - It is kind of slow, but can generate a lot of value with Kaalia. Depends of the meta.
