Akroma's Memorial Discussion

True. I bring up ulamog because of pillow fort and control decks.
And I've been playing my mono green Savala since I pulled her in pack on draft night when conspiracy take the crown came out.
Followed by playingAkroma's Memorial and Shaman of Forgotten Ways. Then activating its ability to make my opponents life 0. I prefer this because it gets around lifegain and cards like Solitary Confinement and MacKenzie's ability.

I like what I see here. You definitely went for a more combo-centric Death and Taxes deck rather than going for an all out Darien Soldier Tribal deck. I like it!. It's definitely one of the better decks that I have seen and is definitely geared more towards winning. It's how you build a decent mono-white deck. DO NOT TAKE OUT YOUR STRONG HATE CARDS. They are the strength of this deck.
Cards I would consider taking out is Akroma's Memorial, Teferi's Protection (because your permanents phase out and it's a dead card in your hand most of the time), Comeuppance, Stoneforge Mystic and pretty much all of your equipment except protection like Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. I know it goes well with your Historic cards but to me, white is much better and going wide and bulking up that way then stacking equipment that your opponent can chump block for days. Plus your commander is a whimpy 3/3 for 6. You want the ability.
I would add in more removal like Wrath of God and Terminus to go all out control and lock the game out. More card draw so your big mana doesn't go to waste, you have more answers and you can win the attrition battles of trading 1 for 1 and out-value your opponents with board wipes. Angelic Chorus and Archangel of Thune would be neat additions as well. Cathars' Crusade+Altar of Dementia is a good finisher.Hero of Bladehold can provide some early pressure. Mother of Runes seems like it would be perfect with this deck. Iona?
Out (my opinion):
Hammer of Nazahn
Thran Temporal Gateway? Look at your mana curve. Mostly under 4 anyways.
Settle the Wreckage
Platinum Angel (Any removal spell kills it). Not worth 7 mana
In: 2 plains Wrath of God, Terminus, Cathars' Crusade, Knight of the White Orchid, Hero of Bladehold, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Staff of Nin, Carnage Altar, Archangel of Thune, Mother of Runes, Condemn Oblivion Ring, Cauldron of Souls
Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but I would not take your deck to tournaments. You'll be sadly dissapointed. It's not nearly as versatile as say Mono blue, mono black or Simic. Board wipes and removal kill you even with all the protection that you do have. All decks except blue are very open to Cyclonic Rift and we know that will always be a thing. Your deck is nasty don't get me wrong, but you are going up against 3 other players that aren't casual in tournament play. Try it for sure, but don't get your hopes up if you run into a Zur or mono blue Teferi deck.

Very true. I've been meaning to add in Liquimetal Coating, thanks :)
Thanks for pointing out those combos! I don't usually look for them, so it's interesting/fun when others point them out.
I might try another rock, or replace Dreamstone Hedron with a rock with a smaller CMC, such as Worn Powerstone. Usually, I'm OK with mana, but there have been some times where mana does become an issue.

mattmccrackin you are absolutely right but I'm quite unsure it it would fit in and both have a relative high cmc. But you gave me some ideas for one of my other decks with Akroma's Memorial, thank you!
Vlasiax I know, but i've never came into such a situation ^^' For now it will stay, since it reads very good and you and the others are probably right. I'll keep trying in having it on the battlefield one day!

Akroma's Memorial or Eldrazi Monument might be worth concidering. Wall of Kelp's token would work well with the monument. I am not sure if there are any other cards that create defenders/walls right off hand.
