Pal00ka on Medomai Master Rewind

Hi! I'd be happy to look again. You can reach me like you did or just update/comment on here (linking my name will definitely let me know) and I'll be notified :)

Add 1 more land at least, Hall of the Bandit Lord for haste would be great since you want swing early and fast. I avoided investing in lands initially but honestly it's the best way to make a deck run well aka have fun with it (especially multicolor decks). It's more fun to buy spells that do something, but it's the truth. Your choice ultimately though.

They may not be "flashy" but add 8-10 artifact ramp spells. Sol Ring, Azorius Signet, Commander's Sphere, and co. are invaluable for helping your deck not only run well but let you get ahead on mana. Medomai costs a lot and will be killed. Ramp ensures board wipes and targeted removal don't ruin your plans.

Voltron is difficult because all of your plans hinge on 1 card. I would consider adding a few creatures who will be great Plan Bs to put your voltron equip on in case she is killed repeatedly. Sygg, River Guide, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Tromokratis are other common voltron commanders in your colors.

Thassa, God of the Sea is good to soothe out your draws and offer cheap unblockable. Speaking of draws you still need more card draw, Rhystic Study is always solid though you gotta pay attention to its triggers. You have a lot of auras so Sram, Senior Edificer will be awesome.

Voltron can leave you vulnerable so pillow fort cards can be helpful. Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, etc. get the job done nicely.

Sorry for the book :P It's looking better but a deck is never finished as I've found. Do an update and I'll check it out again :)

I don't think the card would read "greatest total amount" because the "greatest amount" combined with "this turn" and "by a source" (not "by a spell or ability", then it would be clear that it's only 2 dmg) implies that it is the total.

the key to this problem is that the "source" is the permanent purphoros, not the triggered ability.

It's the same with cards that give protection of a certain colour. Take Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and something like Lightning Crafter for example...you can make the lightning crafter (the source) white and give a creature protection (prevent damage from a white source) and the ability won't be able to damage that creature. The source is always the permanent the ability comes from, not the ability itself. This is also why you can't change the colour of an ability on the stack and stuff like that...

you missed the classic Master of Cruelties

Don't worry, he doesn't actually attack when put into play by your commander. Meaning that actually your commander makes him even better as you don't have the restriction of choosing whether to attack with him or the rest ;)

In combination with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails or Mother of Runes, you can even give him protection from the color you need in order to hinder your opponent to be able to block him, resulting in dropping down to 1 life before damage phase and ultimately you only need to push 1 damage through to end the game with any other creature attacking.

Cheers

Eight-and-a-Half-TailsSo, I have a pretty good Mono-White control deck. I've been thinking about adding the above card to it, I just don't know If it will work. I wanted It in order to defend my main beaters, mostly from path to exile and blue control.

KABUUUUMMMM (Mono-White Control)

I also thought Linvala, Keeper of Silence could help my deck defensively.

Hey I just read your primer over on MTG Salvation and I really enjoy your idea for this deck, so much so that I'm looking to build a deck around this Avacyn myself.

I might be biased in suggesting this because I love angels but I don't think a Deathless Angel would be amiss in a list like this. It's basically an Avacyn, Guardian Angel / Eight-and-a-Half-Tails but for indestructible. It's a bit mana-pricey but I think it fits the kind of theme you're going for.

Used Ancient Tomb before. At the time, I needed space for the cycling lands and I decided to keep Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx over it.
