Eiganjo Castle Discussion

Looks like a good start. I'll do my best to suggest older cards but most of the cards from portal 3 kingdoms where liu is from are either bad or super expensive due to its very limited print run in english. Here are a few initial thoughts:
I think the weak spot of the deck right now is card draw. EDH games tend to go on a lot longer than other formats. This means that you will soon run out gas in hand and be reliant on topdecks. White unfortunately has the weakest card draw/section of the 5 colors so your options are a bit limited. Mentor of the Meek is borderline as to if you should run it since with that card you want a lot of 2 or less power creatures. In terms of artifacts, The Immortal Sun, Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye can help. It has the potential to backfire really hard but if you are wanting older cards you could try Pursuit of Knowledge but it's really bad if they destroy it after you've skeipped a couple draw steps.
If you wanted to boost your commander, the cards he mentions are Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior and Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior. If you don't have either in play, guan has better stats and is arguably a better commander than liu as he's more consistent.Thalia's Lancers can help liu find his missing buddies as well as several other cards in the deck. (worth noting it doesnt just find creatures so it could also find the imortal sun or a land like Eiganjo Castle or Kor Haven if needed.
Right now i think a lot of your games will be won off of smacking them a few times with yor commander and dealing lethal (21) commander damage. This archetype is called voltron. If you're planning on going down this route, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, Strata Scythe and Battle Mastery among many others can help speed up the clock. If you go for this route, i'd recomend adding more mana accelerants to the deck to get liu out before turn 5
I'd also probably cut lifelink, i don't think it does enough for you here without much in the way of life gain synergy. Archagel of thune likewise isn't super synergistic but atleast she both gains life and rewards you for doing so on the same card.

So a few suggestions land wise,
Scrying Sheets (for a possible 2 mana draw and in the worst case scenario you see what your next draw is [obviously need to replace the basics with snow lands])
A few cards that should be in every white deck:

Just to follow up on the Eiganjo Castle- that has made a huge difference keeping my Gisela alive against lightning bolts and the like as well as the many creatures with 4 power.

On the landbase, switch out 4x Plains for 4x Flagstones of Trokair, they are legendary, but when you legend rule them away you get a tapped plains, and you can just tap the Flagstones of Trokair for a white mana before you drop the second to get value out of it.
Keep in mind that Flagstones of Trokair also doesn't say basic plains, only plains, so a one of copy of Mistveil Plains won't be too bad, along with a few fetchlands like 4x Windswept Heath to tutor it up or just a normal untapped plains and it works out well.
After that you aren't running Horizon Canopy, which this deck seems to want a two of for case of mana flooding. Other than that the landbase seems fine, but here is what I would have it as:
3x Shefet Dunes

Also... a few more legendary lands to tutor for when you NEED that color to play somehthing. AMAZING lands with upsides
Not tutorable but powerful with Sisay (due to search then shuffle) Mistveil Plains.
Geier Reach Sanitarium is a great land to get value from.
Not a land but powerful with Sisay (and just powerful to start with too) is Sensei's Divining Top. Look at your top three and hate them all? Search with sisay and then you get to shuffle! Same effect with your Sylvan Library and if you add Scroll Rack.

Eiganjo Castle is a great way to protect your Geists from sweepers like Anger of the Gods while also allowing it to attack or block creatures without losing it.
With Opt over Serum Visions I think 2 Spell Snare could be excellent here since if you have both in hand on the draw you can keep up your blue mana for either one whereas before you had to choose between cantrip or leaving up a counter.
I also suggest 1 Desolate Lighthouse as a way to filter away bad draws late in the game.
Izzet Staticaster is also excellent in the SB against small creature decks like Tokens and Elves.
Celestial Colonnade is a great win con as well.

I really like the deck Callmegkill. I have a similar deck that uses most of these cards and a few more that I will be buying this week. I think the major change from your deck to mine is the expensive lands that you have in your deck. I haven't replaced my tapped lands with better lands yet. Do you draw Eiganjo Castle or Flagstones of Trokair very often when you play? And how often do you use their abilities? I love the cards, just don't know how often they would be used. I really like how Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep synergizes with Tajic, Blade of the Legion. The possibility of a 7/7 with First Strike and Indestructible for 4 mana sounds scary. In my deck it could possibly become a 9/7 if I am attacking with 2 Honored Crop-Captains. I will definitely have to try and find some of those awesome lands. Any suggestions you would have for my deck would be greatly appreciated: Gideon of Destiny
