Thanks for all the suggestions!

Yup, familiar with Wall of Blood and how it can combine with Rite of Consumption and Essence Harvest. With infinite life, those cards can definitely be useful. But for my deck, it seems somewhat inefficient as it requires two whole other separate cards (beyond the core combo cards) to pull off as compared with my current finishers Unspeakable Symbol and Vizkopa Guildmage.

I have a play set of Thoughtseize as of the moment, so the price is not really that much of a problem.

I find Tormod's Crypt is especially useful against the current legacy meta, so it might be difficult for me to replace it.

From your deck, Dawn Charm is certainly appealing and might be worth play testing. Also the land cards Karakas, Flagstones of Trokair, Godless Shrine are all definitely useful. And I like Grand Abolisher, and I am currently play testing it in tourneys. Seems to work well at times, but not yet completely sold on it though (given the two white mana cost).

Once again, thanks for the suggestions!

scapegoat_tom, I am already playing the playset of Predatory Sliver, but Dawn Charm does look interesting.

I like what you have here to start, I also think the green pump spells already suggested are good too. You can always add a little bit more sliver pumps by adding Predatory Sliver and I really like Dawn Charm as a utility to keep things interesting.

Love the deck. I am really partial to this style of play. It acknowledges that there are multiple players, and not all are your enemy at any specific point, especially if you play correctly. +1.

For some additional card ideas, you could check out my Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control deck. I have tried a lot of the cards in your list. In white, I would suggest that you consider Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty. Counterspells in white can really come out of nowhere. It goes well with Dawn Charm and Teferi's Protection . Also, it is worthwhile to consider cards like Silence, Abeyance, and Orim's Chant. They can be very powerful control elements that can allow you to dictate how turns play out. I would also consider Sun Droplet. It is a low CMC artifact that comes down early, and in multiplayer, it can buffer a lot of early attacks, even if it just decreases the total damage done without eliminating it. If you have the funds, Forcefield fits this category as well. When people are deciding between a decreased effect attack onn you versus a full effect attack on someone else, they frequently attack elsewhere. This is basically a 2 for 1 for you. And finally, check out Worship. It combines really well with your Near-Death Experience for a much easier to accomplish wincon and Pillow Fort all wrapped up in one.

Again, love the deck, and I can't wait to see where you take it. I may have to try out a mono-White Aikido as well. This looks great. I just might go with Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker instead.

Deck's Deadly I agree.. Since you can go for any color, I would like to suggest cards like Distortion Strike for a finishing strike. I would also like to advise for your sideboard like Skullcrack, why? Spell like Fog or Dawn Charm would waste the combo of the deck. A Kiln Fiend maybe? You might wanna check on Soulfire Grand Master, Imagine it with Mutagenic Growth.

Hey, love the risk of boros cause it is so hard to play. If I were you I would consider Sunforger. Best equipment and it lets you dodge boardwipes if you search for Boros Charm. Additionally it means that you do not need have any combat tricks as all of them are cheap enough to cast off of it except Resupply. Imagine the blowout of having an opponent swing at you with no cards in hand and you Settle the Wreckage + Sunforger them out of nowhere.

Additionally there are some reasonable instant speed targets to include with Sunforger in mind: Orim's Thunder, Comeuppance, Rootborn Defenses, Wild Ricochet, Return to Dust, and possibly Dawn Charm. Just something to think about.

There is also a shortfall in card draw effects in red and white so maybe Skullclamp would be good. Because you are going to be making a lot of superfluous 1/1 tokens.

I don't think that your life gain and single target removal would work that well in practice. Although I can see why you would include them as Resupply seems pretty on flavor for Ally tribal.

Very cool to see mill strategy in these colors.

Altar of the Brood might work well with any token production in these colors. Something like a Mycoloth might add pressure to that card.

Mesmeric Orb + Gaea's Blessing might be fun.

Maybe a Path to Exile?

If you want more pillow-fort effects or to save more players, you could add Fog effects in white like Angelsong, Dawn Charm, Holy Day, Kami of False Hope (great with Sun Titan), or Pollen Lullaby.

Finally, some blink effects (like Momentary Blink) or Wastes and other colorless-man-producing lands + an Eldrazi Displacer would make your Sun Titan super valuable through recursion of its ETB effect.

Have fun brewing!
