Brave the Elements Discussion

mikeb388, well, I don't play against burn much, but if I were, the things that would help me the most are Brave the Elements, True Believer, and The Ozolith. I'd probably also sideboard in Nevermore and Elixir of Immortality. If I played against burn more often, I'd have a different sideboard. There are plenty of spells available in white. Also, if you use a bolt on my t1 creature drop, that's a 1 for 1 trade - so no one is getting any real advantage. If you target me instead of my creature on T1, then I have a decent chance of pumping that creature up to 4/4, which makes it harder to burn. I can also use Brave the Elements and Abzan Falconer to avoid many blockers. It's not the greatest deck ever built, but in the $100 range, it's a pretty solid list.

So, Divine Sacrament doesn't quite do much for the deck, as the lack of creatures and ways to fill the graveyard cause it to add a little power to the board. I would just add Rest in Peace for disrupting the opponents.
Emerge Unscathed, Gods Willing, and Brave the Elements are fine spells. They are a solid one-for-one, but they act best in decks that can draw lots of cards. Mono-White cannot do that, so things that trade with the opponents don't cut it. Lightning Greaves continuously protects, Fractured Powerstone accelerates your game plan, and Enlightened Tutor is fantastic utility.
Anent being bereft of many lands, Temple of the False God is oft a dead card. It is only active if you are serendipitous enough to hit five lands without having much card draw. Scavenger Grounds hits the graveyards as a bonus to just being a lovely land.
That shall be all from me. May fortune betide!

I would maybe drop 2x Indestructibility and 2x Darksteel Plate (or 2x Inviolability) for more land. Your curve is too high. Instead of Holy Day, I would go with Brave the Elements or Emerge Unscathed. You have a lot of combat defense, but could probably use a way to protect your creatures from unseen threats (like exile) or get them through.

Oh yeah this looks like a solid build. The only thing I would change up are Brave the Elements and Heroic Intervention. They have awesome effects but they are conditional, and often you will find yourself drawing one when all you really need is a creature. I would recommend some more proactive spells, I see Opt in your maybeboard, that’s always a good include. Otherwise I would go for some more counter spells, maybe even Collected Company since it hits most of your deck at instant speed. Casting CoCo in response and finding a spell queller to counter something usually solidifies your ending the game.

Nice to see different iterations of the white weenies! Soldiers seem like a good fit. I think you'd be better off cutting all the 4-drops and playing 4x Brave the Elements though.

I really like Flickerform, Gift of Immortality, Ephemerate, and Conjurer's Closet with Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves. Great ways of protecting him and getting reuse out of his enter the battlefield (ETB) ability!
I also really like Sword of the Paruns. Tolsimir usually wants you to play lots of wolves so that you can use his ability. You can use Sword of the Paruns to boost your wolves on defense when they ETB and fight!
I would recommend maybe replacing Gods Willing, Blessed Breath, Realms Uncharted, Unexpectedly Absent, Inspire Awe, & Stand Firm with Make a Stand, Unbreakable Formation, Rootborn Defenses, Brave the Elements, Swords to Plowshares, & Path to Exile
Heraldic Banner fits the deck really well! Some other good cards in that vein would be Marshal's Anthem, Leonin Sun Standard, Adaptive Automaton, Spear of Heliod, or Vanquisher's Banner. You could replace Shriekhorn, Mindcrank, Conjurer's Bauble, Ghoulcaller's Bell, & Grindclock with the recommendations.

I think you definitely got the right idea here with the changes. Lightning Helix is definitely better than Searing Spear. Have you considered Thalia's Lieutenant? It pairs really well with the Champion of the Parish on T2.
If you're leaning more towards the battalion route, I would suggest Akroan Hoplite (pairs great with Silverblade) and Hanweir Garrison. Though the Garrison can be a little slow (unless paired with the Mauler), it does pump the Champion and Lieutenant pretty consistently.

Nice deck. Have you considered playing Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip or Field Marshal? I have a build pretty similar to this one here: White = Life and Order. I think Mirran Crusader, and Fiendslayer Paladin are better sideboard options then main deck. Maybe for protection play two or three Brave the Elements.
