If you are adding Sun Titan you might as well put the selesnya recursion package in.

do you end up wanting to shift to etb heavy or are you just adding value pieces for titan to grab? my gf's main deck is a sun titan deck with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim at the helm and I have a core selesyna recursion package in my Marath, Will of the Wild deck. massive value and the ability to come back from wipes feels pretty darn good

I guess my main question is...what do you want this deck to do in these colors? there are countless options

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:

Quicksilver Amulet / Elvish Piper take land count/ramp out of the equation.

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

Angelic Field Marshal / Reconnaissance (use this after the damage step to untap your guys after they connect, silly ruling for a silly card)

True Conviction is an absolute all star in my buddy's angel deck. just deletes everyone with a stable board.

Chameleon Colossus and Mirror Entity are all star angels, even if not aesthetically pleasing ones :P

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.

and you can't go wrong with Sol Ring , Urza's Incubator , Coalition Relic and Ancient Tomb to hopefully make those opening hands smoother.

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 :)

well done!

it just depends on what you wish to do with it, your average cmc, the speed of the meta you play in, and the variety you want in deck.

more streamlined loves ton of mana sources and ramp. more variety needs the space sometimes. got a link?

I super appreciate that :)

we are gonna update our primer soon, getting our other decks on here and updated with primers first.

Restoration Angel , Ephara, God of the Polis , and Brago, King Eternal spring to mind...the deck would shift soo much if I had access to white...especially care package-wise( Return to Dust , Ojutai's Command possibly, Eerie Interlude most assuredly)

I dont have too much experience with etb angels, just whap/midrange angels (bruse/tymna). you cant go wrong by slapping a ton of mana rocks in and sneaking in Brago, King Eternal as an honorary angel and just keep dropping fun angels:p
