Here's my first EDH deck after weeks of lurking :D

Finally i managed to do a flavoured deck around magic beauties expecially angels, but i could not leave out Drana from there so i had to go BW :shock:
I know it'd be better to use selenia, dark angel as general but don't like her so i used teysa.
Mostly i packed what i had >.> but i already wrote a shopping plan to finish the deck (-----X means to exchange with the upper card).

Being a control johnny i tried to use cards to control the table as much as i can, i do not have a real win condition :( for now other than whiping the board and attack.

Obviously i'll be grateful for any suggestion.
I have to use this deck my local game (not cmpetitively but with seasoned EDH casual players) store where i never played so i'd like to have a decent deck :\

Strategy is made of:
card advantage using cards like sunblast angel or angel of despair
Tokens for general, skullclamp and throat slitter
versatile removals
and some minor nasty tricks like bouncing a sunblast/angel of despair etc with stormfront riders while producing tokens inthe meantime
or using 8,1/2 tails to sac black creatures or against enemy black creatures to doomblade them
Or again sacrificing tidehollowskuller as ETB with other 2 token to Exile a creature, a Card from opponent hand and produce a token

Well probably it won't be a strong deck but i hope it'll be fun

Yes,you declare where all your creatures are attacking at once

Cards to consider:

Storm Herd- Moar tokens! Especially in a 40-life format.
Return to Dust- Autoinclude in any deck that can assemble WW with any regularity. One of a handful of cards that permanently deals with Darksteel Forge (seriously, what were they thinking when they printed that card?)
Altar's Light- Strictly worse than Return to Dust, but only by a very small margin.
Revoke Existence- Moar artifact exile. Because really, there's no such thing as too much.
Mortify- Kills dudes. Kills enchantments. Solid all 'round.
Unmake- Exiles dudes with no drawback, aside from being WB.
Phyrexian Arena- Graveborn Muse that survives wraths.
Grave Pact- Makes sac outlets extra-sexy.
Nezumi Graverobber- One my my new favorite cards; wrecks graveyards, then turns into an instant-speed Rise from the Grave on legs.
Decree of Pain- For when you really, really need to reset the board. And see half your deck. (Also cycles for goodtimes.)

As someone who has used Darksteel Forge shenanigans more than a few times, I can say Return to Dust should be a high priority for your deck. It's really unfair for me, because I always have to keep counter mana up for it and just expect it to come out.

Altar's Light is still another good one, as the above poster mentioned. I don't know why I don't see it in as many lists though. Same 4cmc, instant speed artifact/enchantment exile. Just doesn't get the 2-for-1 if you cast it on your main phase.

Reveillark looks like it's sorely missing in your list.

You have an angel deck with no Akroma? That doesn't seem right.

Define "fair" :D Popping a Darksteel Forge while it's controller has Mycosynth Lattice out and a Nevinyrral's Disc activation on the stack is not only fair and balanced, but awesome and hilarious.

Seriously, though, the Forge is redonkulous in all kinds of ways; cards like that should never protect themselves (see Privileged Position, Greater Auramancy) but this one just says "all red removal that isn't Apocalypse or Decree of Annihilation need not apply. Same goes for all green removal that isn't Splinter or Titania's Song shenanigans. White- oh God frack it, White, why the hell do you have answers for everything?"

[/rant]

That being said, there's a couple more things you could add, depending on where you want this deck to go:
Darkest Hour. If you resolve this, it's basically a matter of picking a sac outlet/wincon. Ashnod's Altar for an arbitrarily large Exsanguinate? Blasting Station for an arbitrarily large amount of damage? Altar of Dementia for an arbitrarily large amount of mill? Or how about just pitching infinity Spirit tokens to Bloodthrone Vampire, the Gravestorming for 100,000,000,000 with Bitter Ordeal?
Butcher of Malakir is a nice budget substitute for Grave Pact; dirt cheap, and comes on a large body to boot. Doesn't survive Wrath, unfortunately, but ensures that nothing else will either, indestructibility be damned.

looks pretty solid for the most part. I would fit in Hallowed Burial and replace Doom Blade with Path to Exile. Sun Titan is really good because it can recur all kinds of stuff like Aura of Silence and Fleshbag Marauder. There was something else I was going to suggest, but it has slipped my mind.

I would add (or at least put on your wish list): Mortify, Vindicate, Reanimate, Return to Dust, Debtors' Knell, Godless Shrine, and then maybe some white token producers.

Akroma is listed as replacement for iona u.u cause i read is not fun to lock out from the game monocoloured players
I just found the DiviVSDem foil version :D this:http://www.cardkingdom.com/media/images/products/standard/126658_1.jpg
same for debtor's knell and butcher of malakir
Added Godless shrine and mortify.
I don't think i need that bad vindicate cause it cost a lot here...if i'll need i'll buy it also.

i have a copy of reveillark but i dunno how to use it i don't have that many target for it :|

all suggestion are really good there is just one problem >__<
i dunno what to remove @__@ lol i can't remove any hot girl creature, to keep the flavour of the deck >.<

that forge seems a little problematic >__> is there any artifact mass exile removal out there?

I would say remove Violet Pall, Brave the Elements, Crib Swap, Eyeblight's Ending, Cage of Hands, Death Denied and Revive the Fallen.
Many better options exist, for the later two Phyrexian reclamation or Grim Harvest would be an upgrade.

Lotus Bloom is a card i don't like in your list, cause it's an one-shot mana ramp. I would replace it with something else. (Darksteel Ingot, Gilded Lotus or Coalition Relic for example, if you want to keep it a mana artifact)

The only mass artifact removal I know of is in red- Decree of Annihilation, Furnace Dragon, and Apocalypse.

If ya still want more try Dust to Dust and Admonition Angel. (wich I think you want to play anyways)

You really want to run iona AND akroma instead of toggling between then. They're both pretty nuts.
