Always Watching Discussion
1 day ago
Heya, I play a mono white as well, but control destroys it. After playing it for the season I cut Odric and added Gisela, the Broken Blade and Archangel Avacyn Flip. Both are getting cheaper. Also 2 great cards are Blessed Alliance Collective Effort. Always Watching is a good enchant and it works well with Stitcher's Graft
Do you play at FNM? how does it work out with the deck?

Looks good. I would personally go up to the full play set of Lambholt Pacifist Flip because a turn 2 Lambholt Pacifist Flip into either a turn 3 thali's lieutenant, Always Watching , Gryff's Boon, or Rishkar, Peema Renegade is very strong. Also, because you don't have anything to ramp into, I believe that Always Watching is probably stronger than Rishkar, Peema Renegade in this particular build. Have you thought about 2 Thalia, Heretic Cathar and 1 more Always Watching instead of Rishkar? Rishkar is a little awkward without the tribal synergy.
Also, powerhouse cards to consider are Blossoming Defense. It can blank an opponent's removal spell as well as chip in for extra damage. I also think that Natural Obsolescence is great in the meta game right now. Tireless Tracker would be another card that could take Rishkar's slot in this deck. If left unchecked, Tracker can win you the game on it's own as well as giving you that late game advantage/mana sink.

Thanks for the comment, Manga. It's a good point about Gideon being good enough to play after rotation. Sigh...saving money for 2 copies. If I can get to FNM this week I'll post update with more Always Watching and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar

I hate how expensive Bruna is, but Gisela is awesome, especially with Always Watching . I would get 2 Gisela and one more Avacyn. But remember, Gideon is a better card in almost every way. And when he rotates out of standard he'll be playable in Frontier so his value isn't going anywhere for a while.

Hey Magna, good questions. The games I won in the round were due to getting my early drops on board before the opponent had the land to play all three removal colors. Horribly Awry and Harnessed Lightning were the most effective against me.
It is a budget build, hence no Gideon =(. I'm not sure I'll get any b/c he's rotating soonish... still on the fence about 100+$ on the playset.
Collective Effort looked good with the +1 counters on a wide board and a trick I was considering Stasis Snare my own creature in response to Harnessed Lightning then Collective Effort on my turn to destroy the snare... was just a goofy flicker I had dreamed up. Never used it =p IIRC I left frag in the main because of the amount of artifact decks I saw. Otherwise my main is all gas to go wide and fast. Might need to be faster, like the other poster mentioned. Turbo human!
I agree there should be more Always Watching
A player at the LGS had GW humans and he won the FNM, so definitely looking to get out of mono white. I'm slowly building up the cards to make better, cohesive decks. Sometimes it is just patchwork that gets flattened by the experienced deck builders.

I have so many questions and so little to work off of... Questions: 1) The games you won each round, what game were they and why did you win? 2) Are you shooting for a budget deck? - if not why aren't you playing as many copies of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar as possible? 3) What are you playing Collective Effort and Fragmentize mainboard? 4) Why only one copy of Always Watching ?
5) Have you considered a GW Humans build? Renegade Rallier after you sacrifice a clue using the revolt trigger to bring back Thalia's Lieutenant is so dirty...
I ask all this because one of the guys at my LGS is running a Mono white deck pretty often and pretty well. It does well against the "two decks" and I could see you getting there with something similar but with your flair if you wanted. Either way, best of life.
