You can't put in Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Powerstone Minefield when your commander is mono-white.

Four wonderful suggestions gdm1989! Thank you for taking the time to comment.

I really like the idea of Cryptic Gateway and Gishath, Sun's Avatar playing off of each other. Gishath attacks and puts some creatures onto the field then I tap those creatures to play the cards in hand for free.

Like the Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Selfless Spirit abilities so I will def add them to the maybe board and try play testing those out. It started as a tribal dinosaurs deck obviously, but if I can abuse the indestructible creatures by adding these two, that will help me cast my Star of Extinction more often than not.

Quicksilver Amulet is a good way to cheat them out same with Cryptic Gateway I used my toshiro umezawa deck against Gishath but his deck were using angels to double attack and cheat them out. I would also maybe Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Selfless Spirit

gigagloin on Does the colour of generated ...

I'm new to commander and would like to build a white deck using Thalia, Heretic Cathar as commander. I'd like to include Hanweir Militia Captain and am struggling to determine the correct color identity.

I know that the color identity of e.g. Archangel Avacyn is RW because her flip side is red. Hanweir Militia Captain, on the other hand, stays white but gains the ability to generate WB tokens. Is it's color identity W or WB?

Want sweet, sweet value from snapcaster? Try playing it along with Familiar's Ruse. Neverending wall of counterspell. Not really relevant for this deck (too few other creatures), but for the sake of describing the full range of snapcaster fun, it needed to be mentioned.

Also, as far as I can tell, tokens die. So Archangel Avacyn is still good.

Wall of Omens seems pretty good here, and possibly Remand as well. Maybe take out some Frost Titans and Archangel Avacyns for them? As for Opt vs. Serum Visions, Opt is instant speed, and lets you scry before you draw, so you're not drawing blind.

xyr0s Awesome, like you say Thing in the Ice  Flip works well with planeswalkers and that is the main focus, other creatures seem to weaken the value of both him and Supreme Verdict.

I think I will cut the Regents out, the Frost Titan seems like it give much more value for 1 mana more.

Mandalorian I do have two but they were in the 'for sale' pile. I am happy to put them in the deck however, and use them along side Ojutai's Command (The idea of returning Thing in the Ice  Flip to the battlefield on the back of countering a creature makes me smirk to myself)

Ahhh okay those examples you've both described make fetch lands seem more valuable, I thought they could only be played to fetch a basic land rather than a dual land, I can see why this would be an absolute must in decks with 3 colours.

I don't actually own Snapcaster Mage but I do have a friend who was trading 2x copys a week ago which I rejected. I will add these in.

Is it now worth keeping Archangel Avacyn ? Does her flip activate with creature tokens? If so it would be more encouraging to keep her.

Why Opt over Serum Visions ? Because of the 1cmc?

Thanks again :)

Sorry but Archangel Avacyn does not meet the color identity requirements of this deck. Unfortunately color identify looks at both faces of a dual sided card.
