First, I have been amassing Angel creature cards since I started playing MtG back in 2013. Once The Eldritch Moon I pulled both Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade. They sat in my collection for a long time as I continued to collect angels and contemplating how to build a deck with the meld in it. I was researching cards for another EDH deck when I thought of my meld. Low and behold, I could actually use the meld as a Commander. I grabbed all my angels and began building. (Sad face about Iona though... D: )

I have most of the deck built, but I have heard both ways on whether or not Brisela meld attack is considered Commander damage.

I am also open to suggestions for cards that can be added into the deck. :3

From the Errata:

Quote:
7/13/2016 In a Commander game, your commander may be Bruna, the Fading Light or Gisela, the Broken Blade, and the other may be in your deck. If they meld into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, Brisela will also be your commander; but if Brisela leaves the battlefield, only the card chosen as your commander at the start of the game may be put into the command zone.



Cards to consider:

Angel Specific
Angelic Accord
Angelic Favor
Answered Prayers
Devout Invocation
Entreat the Angels
Luminarch Ascension (this will make you a target!)
Parhelion II
Serra the Benevolent
Sigil of the Empty Throne
Moonsilver Spear
Seraph Sanctuary

Choose creature type/Commander creature type
Cavern of Souls
Path of Ancestry
Obelisk of Urd
Coordinated Barrage
Harsh Mercy
Herald's Horn
Urza's Incubator
Vanquisher's Banner
Konda's Banner
Shared Triumph

Hmmm with all the Angel tokens it would be good to add Anointed Procession. Thanks for the suggestions :)

There are a few threads on mtgnexus about Bruna as a commander in a control-style deck that I would consider excellent resources.

I think more than anything, Angels have steep casting costs, so you're probably going to need to run any land-to-hand cards you own like Tithe (if you can find a copy), Gift of Estates, Land Tax, etc. In my experience with mono-white generals that are costly (I used to play Akroma, Angel of Wrath), it's more about hitting land drops than leveraging niche ramp cards (though, you should probably include Knight of the White Orchid and Solemn Simulacrum).

Of the must-have angels aside from our meld pair, I think Lyra Dawnbringer is the only one I would want to insist on.

It might be worth looking at some of the recent Avacyn threads in the decklist further down in the decklists here. I don't necessarily endorse some of the mass destruction strategies, but they did run through mono-white support options.

I, too, am not keen on any Armageddon strats. But, definitely good information. The Mono-White Compendium thread is also very useful.

Don't forget some of the better value humans like Palace Jailer and Weathered Wayfarer. Bruna can reanimate them too.
