PookandPie on The Hits Just Keep on Coming

I'm not big on Master Warcraft in multiplayer, at least not against opponents who know what they're doing. Master Warcraft just says you get to control which creatures attack, not who they attack, so if you select certain ones to swing, oftentimes they'll just send them toward a different player, like you (and then which creatures you chose to block doesn't do anything if they didn't attack that player). So it'll oftentimes just be a 4 mana Holy Day.

Maybe Dawn Charm instead? It's a Sunforger classic; counter a spell hurled at your face, prevent combat damage, or save your Commander. It's a lot of flexibility and is easier to cast than Warcraft.

Also, Combat Celebrant works into your theme quite well, and I'm a huge proponent of Waves of Aggression for decks like these since it'll let you have more than just one additional combat step, and all you have to do is discard a land from hand and pay its mana cost (alternatively, World at War gives you two combat steps, straight up). They might be cards to look into in the place of Relentless assault.

cdkime That's what I like to hear!

So now, back to seshiro_of_the_orochi and some injudicious suggestions from an outsider:

Crystal Ball is, in my opinion, the best top deck manipulation this side of Sensei's Divining Top.

Since you want to get to 10 mana fast, Explore is gas. Rites of Flourishing is more budget, but also gives your opponent gas. (Juvenile humor FTW) Walking Atlas can also work, as can any of the ritual cards.

Control: Abrupt Decay is awesome but expensive, as is Maelstrom Pulse. Pernicious Deed is something to keep your eye on. The usual suite of Negate, Mana Leak, and Counterspell are all available.

Darkness and Fog are in. If you choose to add white, Ethereal Haze is the best option, and Dawn Charm can go in, depending on what else you have.

Recursion: for when things go bad, Eternal Witness, Noxious Revival, and Regrowth are all reasonably cheap options.

LOVE the idea. Some other cool angel cards:

Adarkar Valkyrie, Angel of Condemnation, Angel of Jubilation, Angel of the Dire Hour, Angelic Favor, Blinding Angel, Chancellor of the Annex, Devout Invocation, Iona, Shield of Emeria (<-- a MUST for this deck! :D), Karmic Guide, Luminarch Ascension, Moonsilver Spear, Platinum Angel (<-- another must, imo), Seraph, Silver Seraph, Twilight Shepherd...

Just a few cool angel themed cards.

I would suggest adding some more board wipes, especially Austere Command, and also maybe adding in a Path to Exile.Personally Id also think about Dawn Charm and Lapse of Certainty

I think this deck would work great if taken in an equipment-ish direction, since white has some great equipment tutors!

Find that HP altered Jitte FTW/trade ;)

In addition to Comeuppance, Settle the Wreckage is helpful, as are some cards to smooth out combat, like Reconnaissance, High Ground, and Serra's Blessing. Flicker cards like Ghostway can give you an out during combat, as well, but will drop your equipment. Mark of Asylum might be good.

Holy Day, Dawn Charm, Riot Control, Encircling Fissure, Harmless Assault, and Pollen Lullaby can nerf combat damage for a turn. Something like Fumigate or Descend upon the Sinful can save you and add some value other wraths don't (like Wrath of God and Day of Judgment).

W does not have a ton of card draw. Maybe Inheritance and Slate of Ancestry? Possible counters include Dawn Charm, Rebuff the Wicked, Inspiration, Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty.

Ajani Goldmane and Ajani Steadfast can speed up your damage with counters. Healer of the Pride can net you some life. Brimaz, King of Oreskos, is just over $10, but may be useful here.

You can also slow things down with Ghostly Prison, Rule of Law, and Worship.

Other protection spells and combos exist, but might be too narrow to use here. I do like Solemnity + Phyrexian Unlife + Force Bubble + Greater Auramancy or Karmic Justice.

Equipoise, Orim's Chant, Light of Day, Abeyance, Crusade, Disenchant, Swords to Plowshares(good for indestructible creatures), Bygone Bishop, Howling Mine, Dawn Charm, Illumination, Mana Tithe, Order of the Sacred Torch, Rebuff the Wicked, Sunlance

any circle of protection to start, not all great but are at least cheap to get.

Gather the Townsfolk seems pretty bad -- maybe Dawn Charm could prove a more versatile answer that helps in the same situation, but also has usefulness in others?

Also, dual lands and/or fetches would help with consistency a lot.

Awesome deck! +1 for Dawn Charm and Forsake the Worldly.

To make it stronger, consider a hidden gem in UW: Energy Arc! So good. First and foremost, it fogs. It also untaps any number of creatures, so it pairs well with Dismiss into Dream/Willbreaker, can uptap your glorious 5 toughness Sidar Kondo and others for further combat steps, and be political. Have an Arcanis player? Boom, draw three my friend. Have an elfball player? Here's some mana, sir. Have a Derevi player? None for you, you've had enough untapping. It can also help with an alpha swing, as you can save the blocked while ensuring damage. Besides saving your underdog allies, you could also help the dominant player who alpha swing'd you if he has something you want or just to show you are also capable of mercy. Energy Arc is either broken, or I have too much sentiment for it.

Also, I thought I should mention my similar deck, my phelddagrif group hug, to mention another strategy. I built this turbo fog deck to be political, combo-stopping to ensure a healthy game, have tons of ramp/draw for everyone! All the upkeep draw also syngergizes with my secret plan of Approach of the Second Sun, but there's only one wincon because I don't play to win with this deck. Any suggestions for this deck?

Anyway, here's a cool picture of phelddagrif :)

Tron is like 30% of my LGS meta, I will always think about:

"Will tron reck me? Yes? Ghost Quarters and Counterspells, in."

I am a mono white tribal player though, so my counterspells are limited to Mana Tithe, Lapse of Certainty, Dawn Charm, and Rebuff the Wicked

My first love was mono white soldiers, which evolved to mono white humans, a month before Five Color Humans became a thing, personally, I don't like the deck, not like Meddling Mage isn't a beast, alongside Mantis Rider and the likes, but Abzan Humans I will like more.
