Anguished Unmaking Discussion
9 hours ago
Anguished Unmaking might do good as a one of for general permanent removal. Can't find anything to cut though.

@ojmandias The plan is to eventually transition into a Bitterblossom build right now. Of your four suggestions, two I run in the sideboard, one as a singleton in the main, and the last, Anguished Unmaking, I'd like to acquire for testing.

Some thoughts -
The 2x Dismember in the sideboard should probably be Anguished Unmaking.
Replace Tidehollow Sculler with Timely Reinforcements, you should have enough removal.
Replace 1x Fatal Push with Hero of Bladehold to give a bit more consistency.
Stony Silence in preference to Kataki, War's Wage.
I'm sure you know this, but you do want Godless Shrine over Caves of Koilos. Otherwise the modern event deck was actually fairly decent, though a 4th Inquisition of Kozilek wouldn't go wrong...

I used to run a raise the alarm build for a while until I transitioned to a bitterblossom build. In my experience, you don't need honor the pure to do well. I personally would use it as a flex spot to add some utility cards like Timely Reinforcements Blessed Alliance Anguished Unmaking Collective Brutality any of these would be a useful inclusion in the mainboard. Aside from that, your list looks good except for the wall of omens. Its an interesting idea but I personally feel like its waste of a T2 play. It doesn't give you anything that a token spell wouldn't. I'd replace with another sorin and some of the cards listed earlier.

Despise is not really a strong discard spell, I'd rather have Duress, as that usually hits the most dangerous cards. Of course Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are better than both. If you want to stay budget, which I assume, why not go for Tidehollow Sculler or Sin Collector? Both are really strong cards, even in competitive Modern.
i'd bring your landcount to 23. Try to get the full playset of Isolated Chapel. Concealed Courtyard and Caves of Koilos are affordable as well. Evolving Wilds is not great and would just be an emergency solution. Either way, you need more dual lands to have reliable mana.
I've seen some decks that run Tainted Remedy as the cornerstone to play cards that grant the opponent life. You don't have enough lifegain cards to make that a viable direction though, it's also much more vulnerable and combo-like.
I see what you are trying to do with Niblis of the Urn, but it is a pretty weak card overall. You should find another alternative for tap-effects, that one is a bit weak. Or just go with more removal, no tapping needed then. Luckily, Black and White have the best removal.
The appeal of Black & White decks comes from Lingering Souls in most cases, which is a pretty insane card. It will drive any Control player mad, as it is a nightmare to destroy with removal. I would highly recommend slamming it in any B/W deck, you almost can't go wrong there. It works well with Cartel Aristocrat, but that would go in a completly different direction I suppose.
Edge of the Divinity is a good, but problematic card. It makes your opponent's removal twice as good, but it offers a cheap and strong boost. I'd say only ever run Auras in Modern if you put it on a Hexproof creature. Even if you'd ignore that for now, this card wants to be played in a highly aggressive deck. Your deck is a bit too slow for that to work out, so I personally wouldn't run it.
I wouldn't focus your deck towards Alms Beast too much. Just use it as a finisher and your top-end card. You should decide which direction your deck should go. Either you go down on creatures, and instead increase removal and hand disruption, maybe add some Mana Tithe and play Orzhov Control with the Beast as your finisher. Or load up on creatures, cut your draw and removal and go aggressive, with creatures low in cost and high in power to go wider. Either way, both varieties would be stronger than what you have now, which is sort of a mix of both and that never really worked out as far as I know.
Good luck with the deck!

It looks like the white in your deck serves little purpose main board. Anguished Unmaking and Shambling Vent. The white sideboard tech seems redundant as well. Trespasser's Curse deals with Copy Cat Combo, so Authority of the Consuls and Gideon's Intervention are redundant.
As this is, you may as well be UB and be much more consistent. If you're stuck on Esper, out the Never / Return and a couple Murders for Cast Out, which is a much better removal spell in nearly all scenarios.
Include a couple grindy spells in the sideboard, like Planeswalkers and Hand Disruption. Your main has an abundance of creature removal as well as 3x Horribly Awry. What if your opponent is playing control? Half your deck will be useless. Grab a fourth Cancel sort of card and get a 1-2x Negate in to the mainboard. 2x Dispel in the side is basically mandatory if you ever want to win against opposing blue decks games 2-3. Also, have you tried Pull from Tomorrow? The card will blow your mind. Try a 2x and see what I mean.

Im not sure if Leyline of Sanctity is good in your sideboard. Your already really good against burn, and hand disruption doesnt affect you as much because your deck has so much redundancy. Even Scapeshift and Ad Nauseam can only do so much damage against you. Plus you have hand disruption against the combo matchups anyways. But i could see keeping 2 or so. I would suggest adding Rest in Peace for the Grixis decks and Dredge. Pithing Needle is a decent card overall. It can shut down fetchlands, Aether Vial, and troublesome planeswalkers. I think it can definately help your Tron matchup post sideboard. Vampire Hexmage also hoses planeswalkers but is more narrow. I like a second Sundering Growth over the Disenchant. Anguished Unmaking is a catch-all card that has little drawback in your deck, definately worth a try.
What does your local meta consist of? Maybe we could start from there. I hope this helps at least a little!

So a REALLY cool spell that i've been playing with alot is Sram's Expertise! Its expensive at 4 cmc but totally worth it with the crazy interactions you can get! Get 3 servos and 2 spirits? SURE! Get 3 servos and a Brimaz or another Intangible Virtue! Also the way I think of Anguished Unmaking is its Whites version of Abrupt Decay. If you are in white and black it is just a fantastic card and allows that color combo to keep up with black green.
