Not a bad start but I do have several suggestions for you. I'll try to keep things budget-ish friendly and break things down by category. If you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest cuts.

Finishers: Shared Animosity, Akroma's Will, and Reconnaissance (see my deck description for a recap on Reconnaissance, the card feels like cheating here it's so good) are all worth running. Purphoros, God of the Forge is amazing here. Each vamp you cast domes all opponents for 4 and provides the deck with some much needed non-combat finishing.

Card Draw: Skullclamp, Twilight Prophet, Plumb the Forbidden, and Dark Prophecy (if you have enough life gain) are all excellent options. The more the merrier in this category.

Board Protection: Boros Charm is worth it for the all permanents protection. Scapegoat is a neat hidden gem that let's you pseudo dodge exile, -X-X, etc. type boardwipes and if you run Purphoros, it can double as a finisher.

Vamps: Indulgent Aristocrat and Drana, Liberator of Malakir both deserve spots. I'll leave this category alone for the most part.

Ramps: Arcane Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy, and Talisman of Conviction are all worth running. If you get your cmc below 3 (which I highly suggest), I'd recommend dropping the Boros colored signet/talisman though.

Lands: Vault of the Archangel and assuming your playgroup is ok with proxies or gold border championship edition cards... Volrath's Stronghold.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration (and that explanation for Reconnaissance if you aren't familiar with the intricacies of the card). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Happy Halloween!


Each player creates a number of Food tokens equal to the number of creatures on the battlefield.

Vault of the Archangel and Gavony Township are among my favorites.

Archangel of Life and Death

Creature - Angel Nightmare

Flying, lifelink, deathtouch

, : Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control.

Yeah, probably Impact Tremors and Malakir Bloodwitch. You can swap a land for Vault of the Archangel if you feel you need the lifegain.

Some changes im thinking about

switching out Blighted Steppe, Shambling Vent and Vault of the Archangel for Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze and Reliquary Tower

Monologue Tax for Dark Tutelage

Words of Worship for Venser's Journal

and Brainstorm for Counterspell

overall these would lean the deck further into control and with the amount of card draw adds some needed increased hand size options

Hey, nice version on a low budget. You have good deck building skills on a budget.

Consider Talisman of Hierarchy as 99th card or an upgrade for a Diamond? Orzhov Signet is another mana rock upgrade for a Diamond. Commander's Sphere is upgrade for Cluestone. Angelic Accord is an Angel token source upgrade for Moonsilver.

Sigarda's Vanguard gives Liesa double strike when she ETB and when she attacks. Karmic Guide can reanimate any creature in your graveyard even a black creature. Emeria Shepherd is powerful repeatable nonland permanent reanimation when playing so many Plains. Pair Shepherd with Wayfarer's Bauble.

Liesa, Forgotten Archangel has lifelink, can shut down some opponent strategies and can be repeatable creature recursion. She's good enough to add some creatures who can sac themselves for value especially removal and protection such as Cathar Commando and Selfless Spirit.

Angel of Despair is powerful ETB removal. Angel of Sanctions exiles something when it ETB. Admonition Angel can be repeatable exile. Palace Jailer is more monarch as well as opponent creature exile. Vindicate and Dire Tactics are some budget removal upgrades to consider.

Caves of Koilos, Shineshadow Snarl, Shambling Vent, Temple of Silence, Vault of the Archangel are some budget land upgrades to consider.

Good luck with your deck.

Hi, your deck name neighbour here! You are being too hard on Thriving lands. They are some of the best tapped 2 color lands out there, definitely better than Snowfield Sinkhole ( I get it, you want to activate Nimbus Maize and make you plainscycling angel better, but thriving lands are just better if you don't want to buy Godless Shrine or esper triome). Vault of the Archangel seems like an odd choice too, especially taking into account that Sefris has been quite mana hungry from my experince. You should also probably cut crappy venture cards such as Displacer Beast and Eccentric Apprentice, virtually any card is better, especially after initiative came out. I also feel like you are playing too many Teleportation Circle effects, try cutting some of those.

Nice job building this thing on a semi budget. I do have a few suggestions for you though.

Hanweir Battlements  Meld and Ogre Battledriver both provide haste. Battledriver has the benefit temporarily buffing everyone including all your tokens.

Vault of the Archangel and just the THREAT of activation goes a long way... as does the life gained when you do use it.

Signal Pest and Soltari Champion are 2 cheap pumps that really add up fast. Both are evasive and pretty easy to keep alive through combat.

Last but not least is Devilish Valet. This guy will finish people out of nowhere thanks to built in haste and trample. 1 attack with Adeline out = 6 tokens which makes the Valet 64 power. Krenko or Mardu Ascendency with this can get out of hand. I made 23 tokens with Krenko and Adeline in a turn and this dude had over 8 million power...

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Overall it's not budget friendly but there's some in there. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Isshin - Army of Darkness

If you are looking for more lifegain sources Vault of the Archangel might be a nice add for this deck. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord gives everything lifelink during your turn.
