Desert of the True Discussion

+1 For the love of Artifacts and Mono-white! For draw/hand advantage (I know it's tough in mono-white, plus there are not many good options in pDH in general), I would recommend adding the cycling land from Amonkhet Desert of the True and Haunted Fengraf. Here's a few good cantrips I use in many mono-white pauper decks that you might want to try: Shelter, good protection for your commander. Expose Evil, not exactly a cantrip, but a little extra control, an artifact and a card when you need it, also Thraben Inspector for similar reasons. And a fog or cycle: Angelsong. Since you have heavy artifact synergy, Cranial Plating and Welding Jar seem like must-adds. Hope that helps a little. Happy pDHing!

This is a really unique deck! I love it.

I think Authority of the Consuls is better for the sideboard though. And you might want some other utility lands, maybe Scavenger Grounds and a few Desert of the True to go with it.

Amazing!! I love it! My only concern is the number of lands you are running. As this deck falls in the category of a control deck with a high top end cost it probably needs two more lands. I see how you need the deserts for deserts hold. But Im not sure I like shefet dunes in this. Have you considered Desert of the True or Scavenger Grounds.

Good luck!!

if it is in the budget Scattered Groves could be very useful, as well as the cycling deserts, Desert of the True or Desert of the Indomitable

Also to be more competitive you're going to need to fix your mana base. I would run 2 of each Desert of the True and Desert of the Indomitable. Then 4 Sunpetal Grove and 2 Scattered Groves and 2 Hashep Oasis and 2 Shefet Dunes Then 5 plains and 5 forests. Then in your sideboard I'd run at least one Scavenger Grounds to help deal with things like God-Pharaoh's Gift and The Scarab God of course that's only a temporary answer to Scarab God

Ouch... evil commander deck... +1 love mono

She might have a high cmc, but Avacyn, Angel of Hope can make those wipes single sided... not bad at all. Avacyn, Guardian Angel or Archangel Avacyn  Flip are good and cheaper counterparts.

More wipes? Mass Calcify for mono win! Wrath of God or Planar Cleansing for more hate and control...

You might like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Mistveil Plains for more land diversity and utility. Also perhaps cycling lands for late game, when you find yourself with too many Plains ; Drifting Meadow, Desert of the True and Secluded Steppe

have a good day!

I'm testing a Boros flyers version of this. Priest of the Wakening Sun needs to be a 4 of, the life gain and the tutor are both perfect. Raptor Hatchling should be a 4 of also. It stops them in their tracks so they don't face the early 3/3, its worse vs UB because they dont deal damage with removal. Sky Terror seems wrong for your big bodied plan. I'd swap the numbers of Kinjalli's Caller and Otepec Huntmaster the haste seems worth the mana. You've got the right Hautli in there I think. Settle the Wreckage and Sweltering Suns are good catch-up cards. 2 or 3 might fit. I've been running 4 Inspiring Vantage and I cut the Unclaimed Territory because it was holding back my removal. Maybe your list doesn't have that trouble with no double mana cost spells. I'm loving a set of Desert of the Fervent and Desert of the True but my curve is a lot shorter and I explore some so I like the cycling. +1 for you. Heres my list if you want to check it.
