I've been out MTG for about a decade and looking to get back in. I thought I could use my old decks as the base for some revamped decks but I've already dropped about $200 on this revamped angel deck (I never play in tournaments so I put the thread here). There's a lot of powerful angels out there with high mana costs and even higher dollar costs and I'm looking to get some feedback on angels that are worth it.
The deck is also a bit chaotic at the moment in terms of strategy. I guess I'm thinking about spending the early turns on the defensive as I ramp up my mana to play high mana cost angels. I used to run Ghostly Prison but I think Archangel of Tithes can fill in that role. I am also used to running some removal so was thinking of sweepers like Balance or Wrath of God. I'm not super content with my angels - I this is a good start but there's a few I'm on the fence about like Platinum Angel. For now the draft of my angel mono deck looks something like this:
Sol Ring is Limit 0 per deck in Legacy. I'd drop Karoo & Temple of the False Gods for two Cavern of Souls. I'd up basics till you hit 24 lands total. Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse since fetches are stupid expensive, no more the 6 total of those, drop plains or add 2 in, your choice.
Score some Swords to Plowshares, or at least Path to Exile. Wrath of God & Armageddon are always fun but stick with Wrath of you need field clear.
Akroma, Angel of Wrath is a fun angel. Are you cool with white/blue angels for Geist of Saint Traft
