Anointer Priest Discussion
4 weeks ago
DemonDragonJ - Dawn of Hope's second ability is costed higher, because it combos with itself to draw cards compared to Mobilization. Cards tend to that. For example, Anointer Priest costs less when cast compared to embalmed, because it triggers itself.

You probably need more mana dorks if you are only going to run 33 land. I suggest the classic 1 mana elves. With an avg. cmc of 3.5 you may want about 36+ lands and 5+ dorks/rocks
Unfortunately, Blind Obedience has w/b colour identity, due to extort. You cannot use it in a Selesnya deck.
For a Trotstani deck, you lack a whole lot of token generation. Perhaps throw some in. Anointer Priest, Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor and Anointed Procession, can make some hella good token combos. Trotstani gives a 3 mana populate trigger, you can get some fantastic token spam. Especially with Rhox Faithmender as it doubles your lifegain.
That's if you want to keep Trotstani as your commander, the way you've built the deck, you may be better off with Sigarda, Karametra or Mirri as your commander at this point.
You'll need some reliable card draw too. White and Green have some great engines.

As someone who loves mono white builds. Death & Taxes if you will. I like where you are going with this. I've tried to find a home for Famished Paladin for awhile now. I'm not really sold on Ajani's Welcome though, or Fountain of Renewal. At least you can cycle fountain. They just seem underpowered, and dead draws in the late game. Same goes for Oketra's Monument. I think monument pulls you in a different direction as far as strategy goes. If you keep monument may I suggest playing something like Anointer Priest over Ajani's Welcome. It fits the life gain strategy and the go wide token strategy for Monument. I'm also not a fan of Fumigate in a creature heavy deck. I would pack in more creatures to make Monument even better instead of the wrath, or more lands. I think you're a little land light, but not by much. Maybe through in some Shefet Dunes for a good go wide alpha strike. Sorry if I seemed over critical, but these are probably some of the changes I would make if I played the deck. Other than that, I think this is pretty solid plus 1.

Your gonna want to run a lot more 2 drops then 3 drops. Militia Bugler and Benalish Marshal are keepers. I would take out the vampires in this deck besides Adanto Vanguard. The others don't do nearly enough by themselves and aren't supercharged by Oketra's Monument either. I would add more Benalish Marshal, Remorseful Cleric,Pride of Conquerors, and finally Anointer Priest. Ill explain. Benalish Marshal is going to be needed to pump your creatures up, it will basically be your main way to do that. Remorseful Cleric is a great 2 drop, and a broken 1 drop that deals with annoying graveyard strategies or is at the least a 2 power flyer. Pride of Conquerors is an amazing cheap pump spell that gets the job done, and gets better the more creatures you have.Finally Anointer Priest is amazing in any token decks in standard. Padding your life total in standard now is mindbogglingly good, cause every deck is stupid aggressive or drops down threats that are incredibly annoying. Would this deck be top tier? Probably not, but against any non red deck it has a good chance to win.

I know that Vanquisher's Banner is more costly than Radiant Destiny but I run both in my MTGA standard deck and they do fairly well against a lot of the RDW or Rakdos aggro, and keeps me paced with UW control. Also if you're worried about aggro decks that are faster run Authority of the Consuls cause it's so good.
I'm sure you're building this deck based on your play group but it looks like it's just trying to get out as many dudes as possible. At the very least, I HIGHLY recommend putting in 4x Dusk Legion Zealot. Don't want to run out of gas if you can help it. Speaking of which, put a Arch of Orazca in there to further make sure you stay gassed. You should have no problem getting blessing.

I think going large instead of wide is the better choice in the current meta, and this deck seems like it can get out of control pretty quick. I might recommend Anointer Priest since the extra life would give you an even bigger edge over aggro decks ... plus if you decide to bring in Anointed Procession, that priest can get crazy with the Embalm mechanism.
I'm also a huge fan of Shalai since she protects you against Settle the Wreckage which would be devastating to your board presence and graveyard (losing cat's to exile instead of destruction would hurt), so I would run another one of her in your mainboard, plus her +1/+1 ability is killer too (Maybe drop Shanna in favor of Shalai?).
Anyway, keep it up and post how some of your match-up go as you get to play this deck. +1 from me!
