Sigil of the the Empty Throne creates an Angel Token whenever you cast a support other than itself. However Vanguard supports are not triggering that effect.

    Vanguard supports are generally not considered supports (except when they are).

    The smart thing to do would have been to make 'Vanguard' a type and not a subtype of support, but they didn't do that.

    “Support” is just an MtGPQ-construct that means “all non-creature, non-spell cards” (although now it seems we have creature supports to support party? I don’t know if these types show up on non-creatures in paper MtG). In the old days we didn’t have types and it was just any effect that stuck around. Now we have actual card types and I honestly don’t see why cards still refer to it. It’s just tech debt I guess.
