Azor's Gateway Discussion

I like the idea, but you can cut the mana denial. It is almost useless in the current standard format. Simply add something like Gob chainwhirler, which is generically good. Legion Warboss might be worth it. I really like converting decks to other formats. Azor's Gateway Flip and The Immortal Sun could be really good. (Especially Azor's Gateway Flip+Banefire.)

The core of the deck looks pretty good, but I have a few changes that I would make. For a deck like this you'll want way more ramp. Try to hit 8-10 pieces of ramp, and since your mono color I also recommend the doublers in Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power. But you should include some combination of things like Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone Commander's Sphere for the sun titan interaction.
I would cut Codex Shredder, and Sands of Delirium and I'm a maybe on Perpetual Timepiece. You already have altar of dementia which will vastly out perform those cards. If you are interested in self mill Mesmeric Orb is ridiculous but expensive. Memory Jar is also solid in a deck like this, but again probably out of budget. I would also cut Mind's Eye its really only good in decks that don't tap out to play creatures in their main phase.
Mask of Memory is a nice way to get some card draw especially with the fliers. Endless Atlas is a nice way to get some card draw. Since you are running all of the find land cards (which are great) things like Azor's Gateway Flip and Scroll Rack are really good with those. But again those are pricey. Ive been experimenting with Treasure Map Flip for additional card draw...no verdict yet. Oh Thaumatic Compass Flip is sweet, it helps you make land drops and turns into ramp/protection when it flips over.
Id also like to see some additional removal in mono white I like to be at least 5 board wipes. You can pick the ones that best suit your needs. You'll also want Return to Dust and/or Crush Contraband.
I would cut always watching and add Odric, Lunarch Marshal in its place. 1 more mana for a lot more abilities.
hope this helps!

In response to the ability, opponent uses Merfolk Trickster on it.
What are the characteristics of the Sanctum of the Sun that results?

I hate that I love whatever this is so much that I want to try it out for myself.
It might be super weird and clunky, but a Helm of the Host may be okay in this deck?
Since you're artifact heavy to begin with, Damping Sphere would probably be a good sideboard card, along with some more flexible counter magic such as Negate, Essence Scatter, and Sinister Sabotage. Against aggro, Diamond Mare seems pretty solid. Silent Gravestone and Sentinel Totem for graveyard hate. Sorcerous Spyglass and/or The Immortal Sun vs Planeswalkers.

@goodair That's exactly what happen! I untapped Azor's Gateway Flip a bunch with Derevi, played Whirler Rogue and Judge's Familiar for a backup, then Shalai and beat face. My brother and I both love Derevi, art and all.
