Quote from Darkflame »Hey thanks for responding. I had considered Sigarda but found the issue being her protection from sacrifice ability almost never comes up (in all of 3 years running the deck its been a factor in a game exactly once.) What I do find to be a threat are spot removal/boardwipes alongside super fast aggressive strategies (not alot of all-in combo decks surprisingly), a few I can think of right off the bat being Purphoros goblins, Tuvasa the Sunlit, The Scorpion God, just to name a few. Usually by the time I'm dropping Sigarda(ususally turn 6-7 because I'm delaying my death) they've either got an answer or have alreay pummeled me to the point where she's useless and I die anyways. wasnt sure if i need to just answer that with my own removal or not, and I've been told most the "good" angels are in red/white, so I wasnt sure how I should run it.
Quote from Darkflame »@FunkyDragon I think the main strategy I had settled on was using more controlling angels like Angelic Arbiter, Archangel of Tithes, maybe "cough" Linvala, Keeper of Silence"cough" alongside some enchantments like Ghostly Prison, etc...
Quote from Darkflame »@3Drinks Like I said in my original post, Kaalia just gets auto-targeted because of her reputation for degeneracy, and I'm not all that good at playing archenemy.
Quote from toctheyounger77 »Without plugging directly for one of my lists, myself and ISBpathfinder have both had good success with mono white Bruna, the Fading Light. Neither one of our lists is strict angel tribal, although both run several. She's a really decent reanimation option with a fun second option in the meld ability.
Mono white is scary in terms of ramp and draw options, but building with this in mind mitigates that, and there's plenty of options for grinding out some good wins.
Quote from Mazyloron »My recommendation would also be Bruna, the fading light. Having a commander that has synergy with your deck is a lot more fun than simply having a generic beatstick that happens to be the same tribe.
Mono white is able to control and ramp reasonably well, so it should still fit your purpose.
On that note, I'm surprised that Lyra Dawnbringer hasn't been brought up.
Quote from Darkflame »@ISBPathfinder With running mono-white how do you deal with ramp outside of artifacts (I've shied away from artifact ramp lately because of all the artifact hate that people incorporated after C2018).

Quote from FearDReaper »Lyra, New Bruna and Kaalia seem to be the only generals with angel tribal synergy. Id personally go with Kaalia. Idk why people think it's so degenerate. Its good, don't get me wrong but there are far more degerate decks out there imo. As 3drinks said, there are ways to keep her around. Otherwise, just keep playing Sigarda or another strong angel without tribal mechanics like OG Gisela.
