Brave the Sands Discussion

You'll want to tone down on creatures and look into getting some interaction into the deck.

Some enchantments like True Conviction for a game finisher , Dawn of Hope to make soldier tokens and for some card draw , or Brave the Sands to give your board some blocking power.

Second you have to have ramp. Use cards like Myriad Landscape , Burnished Hart , or Isolated Watchtower as the game goes on the player with the most mana is the most likely to win. Gift of Estates can secure you some land drops as well as Thaumatic Compass  Flip which becomes a good utility land later on. Also mana rocks like Marble Diamond , Hedron Archive , Worn Powerstone , and Mind Stone can be good. Also there is Heraldic Banner which will also be a boost for your team.

If you are trying to swing in every direction then Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer and Adriana, Captain of the Guard would be good for the high end of the deck.

Some of the living weapon creatures like Batterskull and Flayer Husk might be good to get that card draw earlier.

Brave the Sands may be necessary for the deck since with how her ability works the creatures may need to tap to gain indestructible.

Does Akiri’s ability require them to get tapped to get indestructible? If so then maybe Brave the Sands could be a good include.

ClockworkSwordfish on Mono-White Keyword Banding

If you're having issues with mana, then I definitely wouldn't extend the deck to three colours! Instead consider making room for the likes of Marble Diamond, Pearl Medallion, Worn Powerstone and Temple of the False God as well as the various white cards that can piggyback off your opponent's ramp, like Tithe, Gift of Estates, Knight of the White Orchid and Oreskos Explorer.

Also, I'm surprised you aren't running Errand of Duty! Having access to banding at instant speed is pretty handy. I'd also recommend Return to Dust over Ray of Distortion - it gets two targets for four mana rather than ten mana, and exiles them to boot - and something like Brave the Sands since banding pairs well with vigilance.

Another thing to consider is that banding is at its best when you have a scapegoat to soak up all the damage. That could be anything from Cho-Manno, Revolutionary to Seraph of the Sword to Darksteel Myr.

Colfenor's Urn is kind of a lot of elaborate work for a bit of a dubious payoff(it generally seems much worse than just having a counterspell to protect your creatures from dying in the first place, for example.). Mirror Shield is a hyper specific draft card, It's just not very powerful. Also, vigilance isn't really an important keyword for you, so Brave the Sands isn't really helping you much. I'm also skeptical of Sight of the Scalelords...your creatures are probably big enough on average that an anthem isn't really the most important effect for you, particularly not at such a steep rate.

I'd suggest they be replaced with just cheap cantrips and/or interaction, if there's no other cards that immediately are of interest for you. Beast Within, Generous Gift, Disdainful Stroke, Negate, Kenrith's Transformation are a few excellent and budget options. Effects like Rampant Growth or Mind Stone would also probably be fine and generically good additions.

Should I have that in addition to Brave the Sands?
