Some of the most popular theft commanders are Sen Triplets , Merieke Ri Berit , Rubinia Soulsinger , Empress Galina , Yasova Dragonclaw , Brion Stoutarm , and Marchesa, the Black Rose . I would say that Marchesa is the strongest one, but if you want to do them all, a good option is Sisay, Weatherlight Captain . She can tutor them all out.

How could I forget the BEST boardwipe you can run in Avacyn? Nevinyrral's Disk . Every turn. You're welcome

Also, Iona, Shield of Emeria got banned around a year ago, I think. The rules committee deemed it "unfun" to play against. Probably because it can completely lock out mono-color decks at times.

In the past few years, there have been a lot of nice new angels. Archangel of Tithes , Lyra Dawnbringer , and Emeria Shepherd are some of them. Smothering Tithe is a fantastic newer card. Generous Gift is a great piece of interaction. Hour of Revelation is a strong boardwipe that we got a few years back. I like Ondu Inversion Flip, too, since it's a land and doesn't take up deckspace if you replace a plains. Akroma's Will can be a great finisher. Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn are great ramp for an angel tribal deck, if that's what you want to go for. If you're not hung up on angels, I'd say Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite fits the stax theme well.

As for how good it is in EDH? I don't think it's good. Narset's Reversal is essentially the same thing while being more versatile since it can turn any instant or sorcery to your advantage whereas Redirect only works on certain spells. Keeping up for a situational counterspell isn't generally worth it. Deflecting Swat is mostly only used because it's generally free. If not, it can be cast in a pinch.

The best cards to Redirect would be extra turn spells. Nothing feels better than ripping off a Time Stretch . Redirecting removal targeting your stuff to someone else is a great way to unbalance a game in your favor, too. You can also steal Peer into the Abyss .

Sliver Overlord emphasizes quality, since you get to tutor. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim emphasizes quantity. I personally like Sliver Overlord as a commander because it lets you kill people with commander damage really easily. While your slivers go wide on one opponent, the Overlord can go for the commander damage kill on someone else. Just tutor up evasion one combat and then double strike the next. There are a lot of very great slivers from Harmonic Sliver to Dregscape Sliver so it's nice to be able to tutor for them. As for Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , he can't be any better than The First Sliver is at going wide, so he's not the best sliver commander for quantity nor quality. He does have one distinct advantage though. As terrifying as Golos is, slivers are more feared. So if you don't want to be killed on sight as quickly, I would go with Golos.
