MEAT_TORNADO on Pillowy fortress.

You need ramp. Mono white is hard to be consistent in getting enough mana for late game unless you're running rocks and a doubler or two.

You need Sol Ring, no question. Worn Powerstone could be good too. You can probably afford a Caged Sun, maybe a Thran Dynamo, Doubling Cube or Gilded Lotus. They will really help your consistency. Solemn Simulacrum is an auto include, gets you a land and draws a card, Burnished Hart is also good. Any of those will help you accelerate and have more options. Bare minimum get sol ring and solemn in there.

Otherwise, "cheap" cards that fit your theme are Yosei, the Morning Star, Aven Mindcensor, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, Hushwing Gryff, Grand Abolisher, Karmic Guide, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Admonition Angel, Emeria Shepherd, etc

Could go big with an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite....

DarkStarStorm on Choral of death

@DarkEclipse18 In modern, the game is decided by turn 5-6 at the LATEST. Infect can kill you by turn-2 or Bogles can get a 15+ power creature with hexproof, trample, lifelink, and first strike by turn-3. That doesn't even take into account affinity or Death's Shadow lists, which are the current top two decks in modern. I can guarantee that if you took this current deck to a modern event, it wouldn't take a single game over the course of the night. I know that I sound a bit rough, but my point is that this isn't a modern deck; it's casual.

Admonition Angel/Angel of Serenity are overcosted and inefficient. By the time you get one out, your opponent's threats will have already had upwards of three turns to pressure your board. By that point it's not even worth it to remove them, since you're most likely dead.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope: Indestructible doesn't really do much for you. Sure, it's going to prevent boardwipes, but by that time they're more than likely going to Path to Exile your Avacyn and wipe the board anyway. It's not worth the mana to cast a creature that doesn't immediately impact the board.

Iona, Shield of Emeria: This is the ONE angel in your deck that's worth running. It DOES impact the board upon entry and could be cheated out via Descendants' Path as early as turn-4! Your ramp package will need to be drastically altered, however. It doesn't do ANYTHING the turn you play it, giving your opponent a lot more time to improve their board unabated.

Abres_Tenelles on Karametra Framework

A devotee of the land!

With all the lands Karametra, God of Harvests fetches, you might want some more landfall cards like: Seer's Sundial, Admonition Angel, Emeria Angel, Avenger of Zendikar or even Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer.

I know exactly what you're up to with Fleetfoot Panther and you may like to know there are more creatures that can do it.

Such as Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion. Erratic Portal will even let you do it with any creature. Particularly Avenger of Zendikar!

Reverse830 on Partners Landfall

I've been wanting to use Partner commanders and Thrasios, Triton Hero looks like an interesting possibility for a Landfall commander, since not only can his ability potentially get you more lands, triggering Landfall multiple times in a turn, but once you have plenty of mana, it's a great mana sink as well.

But who to pair him with? Given I'm set on a Landfall strategy, I know I want Omnath, Locus of Rage, so the other Partner has to at least be Red.

Would you suggest going Temur colors, whiteless, or blackless? I know both White and Black have some nice Landfall tricks of their own. White gives me access to Emeria Shepherd, Admonition Angel, and Terra Eternal, but Black lets me access The Gitrog Monster and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen.

These are angels you could add

Angel of Finality

Emeria Angel

Gisela, the Broken Blade

Stoic Angel

Sublime Archangel

Voice of All

Archangel of Thune

Baneslayer Angel

Blinding Angel

Karmic Guide

Radiant, Archangel

Shattered Angel

Sigarda, Heron's Grace

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Admonition Angel

Pristine Angel

Angel of Serenity

Angel of the Dire Hour

Akroma, Angel of Wrath

Empyrial Archangel

Reya Dawnbringer

I think you could take out Emancipation Angel, Illusory Angel, Guardian Seraph, Indomitable Archangel, Lightkeeper of Emeria, Malach of the Dawn, Seraph of Dawn, Avenging Angel, Herald of the Host, Patron of the Valiant, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Archangel, Angel of Salvation

I also think you could cut some lands, 38 is a good number. Bant Panorama, Seaside Citadel are good to add back in

Harsh Mercy seems good as well

you have very little enter the battlefield effects, maybe add Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff

It seems like your heavy hitters are 4 mana and up, so i think your ramp should cost less than 4. This way you're not decieding betweenn casting an angel or ramping for other angels. Maybe cut Explosive Vegetation for Rampant Growth. you could cut Belbe's Portal and Quicksilver Amulet for that same reasoning. You could add Simic Signet, Selesnya Signet and Azorius Signet for more ramp as well

Maybe cut Caged Sun for Mirari's Wake.

I think you need some card draw as well. maybe Rhystic Study or Distant Melody, Zendikar Resurgent

You could run some anthems to pump your team as well, I think Door of Destinies could be really good in this type of deck

Lurking Predators is the Quicksilver Amulet type effect you want i think. maybe take out Selvala's Stampede for it?

As someone who has played UW control competitively for a while,

(examples of UW control I've made Competitive Azorius Control on a Budget & A Guide On How To Be Boring)

I can give a few suggestions,

  1. Play 24 lands, it's standard for control decks and is the only way you'll be able to cast 6 drops consistently.

  2. Is this for budget? If so I think that AEtherling would be a better finisher then Admonition Angel, since you can protect it and play cards like Wrath of God. (It also means that you can have it as the only creature in the deck.)

  3. Vapor Snag isn't what you are looking for, as Condemn, Path to Exile, and Sunlance are all better options for removal. (I get you want to have the synergy with cards like Meddling Mage but those cards are pretty easy to deal with.)

  4. Render Silent should really be Mana Leak, if anything, render should be a sideboard card, since you can shut down combo and other control decks with it.

  5. Cut the oblivion rings for wraths like Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, or Day of Judgment, 4 D-spheres is more then enough to deal with what it needs to.

Hey, so I'm a big fan of white myself and there's a few things I'd consider:

Weathered Wayfarer is really indispensable to me, he always earns his keep. Might add in Deserted Temple as well but not absolutely necessary.

Land Tax and Scroll Rack are just awesome, I never regret having either.

I really think Sword of the Animist is really good, even though mono white isn't exactly the greatest for aggro it pays off big in longer games/slower metas.

Lastly I'd try and find a spot for Knight-Captain of Eos, Mikaeus, the Lunarch and Admonition Angel all of them are just fantastic.

Some cuts I'd consider: Emeria Shepherd she always felt to slow to me and Intrepid Hero isn't great imo. That's all I've got, hope it helps. Also you can look at my list if you want some other ideas, Getting Mono.

Hey I just want to throw out there Admonition Angel is one I rarely see but can be a beast, especially paired with green for ramp. I also wanted to say I pretty much agree with Abaques, I would go boros with the deck. Kaalia is actually not good unless you are in a casual group, in my playgroup someone brings her out occasionally only to find that she never sticks around long enough to do anything.
