Eiganjo Castle Discussion

Have you considered Tolaria West to help search for Minamo, School at Water's Edge or Eiganjo Castle. Love the deck, love Ojutai! Got to say I didn't think of using Blessed Alliance to save Dragonlord Ojutai, I'll have to add a couple in my Esper dragon deck.

There is also a of legendary lands you could consider running as they are usually better than a basic of that color.
White: Eiganjo Castle
Black: Shizo, Death's Storehouse

I really like Unexpectedly Absent. It's a fantastic tempo play and has its moments when it works wonders. Instant-speed Planeswalker removal is also hard to come by in Mono-White.
It's also fun against Commanders! for "Return target Commander to the Command Zone" or the opponent losing a fresh card in their next draw is great.
Eiganjo Castle doesn't do enough. There's no reason to have a card that prevents only 2 damage to Sram when he's going to be suited up to always survive combat.

Something that you could try is 2 Thalia, Heretic Cathar over a couple of Blade Splicers. She slows down opponents very easily with all the fetch lands in Modern. And it effectively can buy you even more time against Tron. Another provides another target for Eiganjo Castle. Just a suggestion though.

With so many one ofs, have you considered turning it into an edh deck?
Here are a few other cards you might want to consider either way
Defy Death: self explanatory
Heroes' Podium: good with lots of legends
Herald of War: makes things cheaper

hoardofnotions: Oh, I missed your earlier comment! Lemme fix that now...
First post: Boros Garrison can bite you sometimes, but overall I'm pleased with it. I don't own an Eiganjo Castle or fetchlands, unfortunately. Inspiring Vantage is awesome. Sublime Archangel used to be better when I was playing more token cards like Monastery Mentor, but it's still pulling its weight (usually gives at least +4/+4 to my Exalted creature). Inquisitor's Flail is one of my most valuable cards, wouldn't leave home without it. Relic Seeker is much worse than Stoneforge Mystic obviously, but still very good (I need to see if Sram can make the cut as well). I'm not really a fan of Tithe. Lightning Greaves is generally a better card than Swiftfoot Boots BUT shroud isn't friendly in a Voltron deck. Mistveil Plains/Sunforger is not a combo I really like here, to be honest - it's better suited for a slow, grindy deck. Armory Automaton does not work very well with Argentum Armor unfortunately. I'm glad you're enjoying your Aurelia deck!
Latest post: I'm honestly not sure why I have trouble with colors in this deck, but I do. Perhaps I shuffle wrong? But for now I'm not willing to add more utility lands TBH. (Also, I can't run Cabal Coffers obv - what card did you mean?)
And with regards to Chaos Warp - if you Warp a commander, the top card of its owner's library still gets flipped. This is because the effect that puts the commander back into the Command Zone is a replacement effect, not an effect that makes the target illegal (in the latter case, the spell would be countered and the top card would not be flipped - for example, if the commander in question was sacrificed in response). However - in the special case of a commander being Warped - the commander isn't shuffled in and therefore the order of the library is unchanged before the flip occurs.
Does that clear that up? :)
I don't run Strionic Resonator or Rings of Brighthearth because both cards are disappointing - too little effect on their own, and too conditional. In 95% of cases, they are just dead cards. I've tried them and found they just didn't work in this build. (In fact, I find that Strionic Resonator sucks in general, but that's a longer conversation.) There are just too few triggered effects I'm willing to pay mana to copy. I could give you proper statistical analysis if you want, but it's mostly personal preference.
I don't personally think that Cauldron of Souls is worth 5 mana here, especially since it conflicts with my commander's CMC. I actually used to run Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant in here, haha - and I'm conflicted over him. He's amazing if I can drop him T3. He's really disappointing if I drop him T5 (because I'm frequently below 30 life at that point). I cut him due to reliability issues.
I hope this answers your questions!
