Wapulatus on Make Mono-White Great Again (Amonkhet Edition)

5 days ago

@Iron_Cube Thanks for the suggestions!

I think it might help me to cut back on the equipment subtheme, and focus more on tokens/creatures. I'll see what I can chop off from that side for some of these suggestions.

Angel of Invention is something I can't believe I missed. I'll definitely switch something out for that.

Mother of Runes was one I was sitting on for a while, and honestly I think I should slap it in. This deck gets hurt too much by board wipe and removal anyways.

Brave the Elements is prob going to be added for same reasons above.

Lone Rider  Flip looks good to me as well.

If the equipment theme is still strong after my edit, I'll throw in Sigarda's Aid as well.

If I need more creature slots I might go for the responder, however that depends if I can't find something better.

I'll test with the land, and see if it is worth the loss of tempo.

Cool deck. You should add Brave the Elements, Mother of Runes and maybe Aerial Responder. Angel of Invention also gives keywords, create tokens and boost your army. Lone Rider  Flip looks great.

With so much equipments (maybe too much ?) Sigarda's Aid would also fit pretty well.

I also think Sandstone Bridge is worth a try.

Have you considered Serra Ascendant, Mother of Runes, Brave the Elements, Ajani Steadfast, or Phyrexian Processor (which is legal, despite pooping black tokens)?

Also, if you don't mind checking out my deck, http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/hekkin-bull-beatdown/#c3009987, I'd appreciate it!

I think what's really missing here is the ability to go over the top. You seem to have great potential for board stalls with no way to punch through the final damage.
Brave the Elements - I'll second this recommendation, as this does exactly what you need in this. You can stop removal if need be as well.
Boros Charm - super effective in all modes here for you. You haven't lived until you've countered a Damnation..

I would try to normalize your numbers as well. In a deck that doesn't have a ton of draw tech, having 1-ofs just makes so little sense. I would probably go with 2 as a minimum quantity, but consider boosting the totals for useful tech.

Other than that, you mentioned that you've been losing with this. How did you lose? What would have won the games for you, if it was possible? That is key to finding a solid path for upgrades.

I think this is a decent start, but this deck definitely needs Path to Exile. The inability to interact with your opponent's gameplans is a definite weakness. I would also advise against Elite Vanguard - a vanilla 2/1 is not where you want to be. Fill out your playset of maindeck Thraben Inspectors instead - it gives you resilience. I'd also advise you try and sneak in a couple of Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip in here, as it has significant upside.

Brave the Elements used defensively covers what Make a Stand does in most situations, so I'd advise that you cut it. Gather the Townsfolk is a card that I advise you consider, as it has great synergy with Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant (not so much with Thalia herself, but that's why you can have it in the sideboard and bust it out when Thalia herself isn't helpful). Relic of Progenitus is mostly a better Tormod's Crypt for you, and Sundering Growth is mostly a better Disenchant.
