Elspeth, Knight-Errant Discussion
3 hours ago
Well, unfortunately it's not a replacement. I wouldn't play it in an aggro deck but rather in control. I mean cataclysm works also good in control if you build around it but in aggro the best mass removals are land removals. If you aren't allowed to play that in your group you should probably replace your mass removal slots with even more aggro.
If you have problems in being the first and worst threat on the table, you probably need to reconsider your choice of creatures, ramp and pump spells.
Having played several games on Xmage with Arahbo today I can tell you a bit about what I felt were the game winners so far. Puresteel Paladin and Bloodforged Battle-Axe is absolutely ridiculous - it wasn't removed for very few turns and the paladin drew half of my deck! Elspeth, Knight-Errant is also a killer because of the additional boost and evasion, Umezawa's Jitte is deadly with the Hungry Lynx and also with Duelist's Heritage, Strionic Resonator won a game because it can copy so many important triggers for example eminence...on the other hand I wasn't impressed by Balan, mostly because I never got enough equipment to give him double strike, also Loxodon Warhammer did nothing in most games because it's too mana intensive. I even hesitated often enough when the choice was between playing swords other than fire and ice and something else...often these swords were held back in favor of other spells. Maybe this changes when I can test Nazahn and his hammer but the hammer hasn't worked online yet. Sigarda's Aid isn't worth the slot as a replacement, just not good enough.
Hope this helps in tuning your deck, although my build is made for much faster play with very few late game bombs.

Looking for some advice on this brew, I've been playing UW control exclusively lately and I'm trying to throw out some of the grindier/control elements for Geist of Saint Traft + Elspeth, Knight-Errant combo and Spell Quellers. Kind of like a Jeskai Queller deck without the red and some other neat blue/white cards. I don't know if 4 of each of these cards is correct, or the counterspells or, basically anything, but it seems like it has potential!

Hey Sorin! I actually just took them out lmao. I had 2x Anointed Procession in there, but traded them out for a second Odric, Master Tactician and a third Captain of the Watch. Your thoughts on what I should cut for them? I really did enjoy having them in there but it felt like I was giving up pressure and board dominance for a turn by having them. What are your thoughts on taking out 1 Captain of the Watch and a Devouring Light in exchange for the 2 Anointed Processions? My other thought was cut 1 of either Captain of the Watch or Devouring Light and both Thalia's Lieutenants for the 2 Anointed Procession and Elspeth, Knight-Errant

Fist of all, your mana curve is WAY too high for your land base, with this sort of mana cure, you should be at 22 lands at the ABSOLUTE least. Even with a drastically lower curve, you'd still probably need 17 lands at least. Either way, You really shouldn't be running anything over 4 mana.
Here's a list of quick and easy changes.
- Mirror Entity is an amazing finisher in a token deck.
- Devouring Light is some strong, extra removal.
- Smuggler's Copter gets you value for your value.
- Thraben Doomsayer is just better than Steward of Solidarity.
- Dragonscale General is strong in a grindier matchup.
- Gisela, the Broken Blade is the strongest beater below 5 mana.

Got to agree with the above. Vault of the Archangels is a 1x or 2x max. Windbrisk Heights and Spectral Procession are both very solid. Honor the Pure and Intangible Virtue would be better at 2x each, 8x risks flooding your hand with useless cards when you have no creatures out, maybe a 1x/2x Coat of Arms as it ends up being more efficient. Day of Judgment is going to be a dead draw for you most games, slap it in the sideboard or take 1x. Captain's Call or Pulse of the Fields are also decent considerations.
With your only black card and interaction being Tragic Slip, taking some more hand control and removal is definitely a good idea. Duress, Blackmail, Cry of Contrition, Go for the Throat and Inquisition of Kozilek are all budget options

I am assuming you are on a bit of a budget, which is fine. But otherwise, shock and fetchlands would help out your deck a lot. You do not need 4 Vault of the Archangels though, and I would swap some of those out for Ghost Quarters. Windbrisk Heights can also help a lot. Manabase aside, you need Spectral Procession, and targeted discard. Normally this involves 6-10 copies of a mixture of Collective Brutality, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Thoughtseize. Raise the Alarm is also much better than Gather the Townsfolk, and Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better than Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. Other walkers commonly found in BW tokens are Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Some lists have also been trying recently with Start / Finish. Here is the Primer on MTGSalvation if you want to learn more about the archetype.

Great deck! Monowhite soldiers was also my first EDH. Here are some recommendations that the ever-helpful tappedout community hasn't already given you:
Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant makes all of your creatures nigh-indestructible.
Mass Calcify is a decent boardwipe in a monowhite deck that's under a dollar.
Devout Invocation can give you a massive army.
Enlightened Tutor can get those useful artifacts and enchantments that you need to make everything huge.
For card draw, maybe look into Culling Dais. It's a janky card, but you have the tokens to spare and by the time you're topdecking you can probably refill your hand.

Your maybe board looks like one awesome deck. Your main would greatly benefit from including bits of it. Regardless, if you want to keep it under $50 I will try and offer some budget options you may not have considered. Quicksilver Gargantuan is a great Clone and pairs really well with Stolen Identity. Identity Thief is awesome with etb effects. I also like Sram's Expertise, Servo Exhibition and Raise the Alarm all solid token makers. If you start seeing some value in adding more instant and sorcery spells, Talrand, The Sky Summoner and Talrand's Invocation are both solid in that type of strategy. I did see the incovation in the maybe board but if talrand makes it in the invoaction is good too. Elspeth, Knight-Errant starts to get out of price range but is so good I had to mention her. A few good board wipes are Descend upon the Sinful Planar Outburst and Planar Cleansing. The cleansing makes your opponents so sad cause it hits mana rocks too. Judge's Familiar Spiketail Hatchling Spiketail Drakeling and Spiketail Drake are all good targets for copy effects and give that extra value since they are counterspells on a stick, and they fly! One last good thing to cover would be draw. Since you are lacking a little, Jace's Ingenuity and Opportunity are both great at instant speed and really net a lot of cards for the investment. Mind Spring is really good since it can dig so deep late game. Think Twice Catalog Artificer's Epiphany Tragic Lesson all instant speed and most do not require a discard.
