Vault of the Archangel Discussion

cabal_patriarch I was going to go a bit in depth of why your suggestions don't really fit in this deck, but zapyourtumor gave you a really good answer, basically all your suggestions dilute too much the plan of the deck. I would only ad that I don't like multiple legendaries in a deck, that's why Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a x3. She used to be 2x but since is ability makes her the only possible objective she doesn't tend to stay around for long. Also combos with Giver of Runes making a nice look that essentially makes all my stuff untouchable. Plus she can be used as short of a counter spell with vial, which can be really handy even if you already have 1 in play and you have to sack it. Plus we want as many angel creatures in the deck as possible to trigger all our stuff.
I haven't tried Vault of the Archangel but I don't feel that it would make the cut. Not because of the card itself but because we can't afford more colorless lands because the Cavern of Souls are great, but all our creatures aren't angels plus the 4 instants... So essentially why have in a way already 8 colorless lands. I've tried Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Field of Ruin and those showed me that I can not afford more colorless/conditional colorless mana. Also I may be wrong, I don know without trying, but I think that my creatures are relatively to big to have death touch be really relevant, and already gain me enough life to make the life gain redundant. Flavorwise is amazing though, xD.

cabal_patriarch If you're casting avacyn angel of hope you should have already won the game by then. Aetherflux Reservoir is more for storm, it doesn't gain much life in this deck especially cuz of vial, and if you have 50 life you don't really need a wincon at that point. Also, there's only 8 token generators so I don't think anointed procession is worth it.
1x Vault of the Archangel maybe? Flavor is on point.

Are you sure you want this to be a modern deck? It could currently either be a modern or a pioneer deck, and you should probably choose one and stick with it.
If you choose modern, Doomed Traveler fits the theme of the deck pretty well. Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a powerhouse that gives all your creatures afterlife, doubles as removal, and is another instant-speed sac outlet. Honestly, she's the only reason I would consider playing an afterlife deck in modern. Xathrid Necromancer is another option that generates tons of tokens off of most of your creatures, and it works really well with Hero of Precinct One .
This deck definitely needs a playset of Fatal Push for removal which works in either format, plus maybe some Path to Exile or Vindicate if you choose to stick with modern. Mortify is bad in both formats so I'd cut it. 4x Kaya's Wrath is definitely overkill and might not be the best choice, since even though your board would have a bunch of spirits it would still wipe a lot of your creatures.
Giant Killer is just bad outside of standard. Athreos and Ethereal Absolution are also too slow, and I don't think Sorin adds enough to the gameplan to justify including him. Teysa Karlov obviously synergizes a lot but I'd take her out since she doesn't have any immediate board impact (while the other Teysa can have its abilities activated at instant speed to do a bunch of stuff in response). Not sure if Corpse Knight is worth it either. The other Athreos, Athreos, God of Passage , might be worth trying as a 1-of.

Hey lobsternips! Thought I'd jump in and give you my take on what you've got going on. Your noncreature spells look fantastic, not much I would take out, but if you can find a way to fit in some creature recursion in Rise of the Dark Realms or Thrilling Encore with your mass creature destruction in dictate or Killing Wave . Also bounce-type effects like Conjurer's Closet could make use of your etb effects, you'd definitely see some usefulness there. The only problem I see with this deck is its SUPER heavy into red, there are some non-red Goblins out there, but you'd basically be playing a Red deck splashing white and black for support. However, Goblins are funny and mean just like Negan.
Creature Suggestions Show
Goblin Recruiter : Very good for Goblin decks, worth an inclusion in my opinion.
Goblin Chirurgeon : Decent if you have enough Goblins in play. Protects your board from most board wipes.
Warren Instigator : Very good for this deck, basically free cast your Goblins when he connects.
Wort, Boggart Auntie : Really nice built in recursion on a creature. Would work really well considering the gameplan you have.
Goblin Sledder : You ever want to ride a Goblin?
Species Specialist : Nice little inclusion to draw your whole deck when the time comes.
Munitions Expert : Kaboom am I right?
Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician : Cheeky little Goblin man. Makes your 1/1s explode when they're blocked.
Goblin Tribal spells Show
- Boggart Birth Rite : Decent little recursion spell.
- Fodder Launch : Synergystic kill spell for Negan, Goblins and making your opponent mad.
- Warren Weirding : Good if you target yourself, and also good if you target your opponents.
- Boggart Shenanigans : Targets players and walkers. Very good when you're ready to wipe your own board.
- Brightstone Ritual : Not really a tribal spell, but very VERY good for mana ramp. Would work wonders with Goblin Offensive .
- Last-Ditch Effort : Funny card, fitting art. Killer with Dictate of Erebos .
Utility Cards Show
- Throne of the God-Pharaoh : If you're going wide, this is a fantastic inclusion. Swing in at everyone and then have them all lose a TON of life.
- Vault of the Archangel : I love Behind the Scenes so much. Very good inclusion. But what if they had Deathtouch and Lifelink for basically the same cost? Worth thinking about lol
- Talisman of Hierarchy : To complete your Talisman set!
Hope I helped some, I probably didn't seeing as I gave more inclusion suggestions rather than cuts. If you decide on doing one thing like "Go Wide" or "Go Tall", adjust your cards to reflect that. Aside from that good luck on your deckbuilding!

Either remove Terramorphic Expanse or add Evolving Wilds

Anything that lets you recast your vampires would be good. Palace Siege etc.
Depending on who you play you might need a couple things to give your boss hexproof or shroud. maybe protection from a color.

I'd put in Oath of Kaya if I had more than just the one Planeswalker.
