Elspeth, Knight-Errant Discussion
2 hours ago
I like your deck. I play a similar one.
How did Elspeth, Knight-Errant perform and how do you compare it to the two 4 cmc Sorins? (Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad) I would miss the lifegain of these cards, but Elspeth seems nice with Gideons.
I don't like the Ghostly Prison, since it can't protect the walkers and they are the heart of the deck.

Personally I find your deck better now than it was before, I really apreciate the shift to Esper, but I'll make some little changes:
I'd cut Rootborn Defenses, to get the synergy you need 7 mana, and what about if an opponent has a Remand? Obviously this isn't such big problem, but consider that Rootborn Defenses gives your creatures indestructible and puts only a 1/1 on the battlefield. If you really want to have that synergy in your deck I suggest you Make a Stand (because a +1 +0 to all creatures is better than a token), or Selfless Spirit.
Just one technical term: combo is something that goes infinite or that instantly makes you win the match (for example infinite mana with Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth or Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank , synergy is when two cards have effects that do really well when used both.
As for the lands think about Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, Flooded Strand, Glacial Fortress, Fetid Heath, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Irrigated Farmland, they are very helpful if you need specifical colours. In my opinion you should reduce them, I find 24 too much.
Think about Zealous Persecution. It could be useful to boost your creatures and make less stronger the opponent ones.
I don't know if you want to add some things that will make you see your opponent's hand and discard some cards (personally I'd put some), but here are some names: Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Tidehollow Sculler, Duress, Despise, Kitesail Freebooter.

I definitely think that Elspeth, Sun's Champion is a better inclusion than Elspeth, Knight-Errant as the former makes more soldiers, while also being bale to clear out your opponents bigger creatures. A rather rude combo that I run in my own Marchesa deck is Descent into Madness and Assemble the Legion since they're your triggers, you can stack them so you get your soldier token first and then everyone sacrifices or discards. This ensures that you get to keep your board other than the soldier tokens.

Actually, once Ixalan releases this weekend all planeswalkers past, present, and future do get the legendary subtype and the planeswalker uniqueness rule goes away, meaning I can have Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Elspeth, Knight-Errant on the field at once.
As for more stax effects I will have to add norns Annex and Sphere of Safety, however Propoganda and Ghostly Prison only work if they attack me, they do not protect planeswalkers.
Thank you for your comment and i'll be sure to look at some of your decks too!

I think other than Leonin Shikari (combat tricks with Equipment), Mirran Crusader (built in protection and evasion), and Puresteel Paladin (card advantage), you shouldn't be playing creatures that get a bonus only from equipping something (Auriok Glaivemaster, Auriok Steelshaper, Kor Duelist). My rationale is that they are going to be quite weak when played early, and that's not ideal. You need some resilient creatures in the first few turns, not creatures that become better on turn 4 when you equip something on them. Even if you cast them early, they are likely not attacking nor blocking anyway given they are basically vanilla 1/1s.
Therefore, some suggestions are Doomed Traveler (gives you an evasive spirit after dying), Sacred Cat (two lifelink bodies for a 1-drop), or Knight of the Holy Nimbus (tricky to get rid of), or Squadron Hawk (gives you more evasive bodies to hold the swords), or Auriok Champion (protection from more than one colour, goes well with the swords too). These guys will probably be better early-mid game.
I would also cut Quest for the Holy Relic entirely - it is a terrible top deck, objectively quite slow even if you manage to play it on turn 1, especially since your deck doesn't run that many creatures in the first place. And since that is the case, you may as well cut Argentum Armor, and play another sword or something like a Batterskull instead? Also, you can double up on Swords - Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Light and Shadow are objectively the best two swords and you can play two of each if you want.
I'd also suggest playing Gideon, Ally of Zendikar over Elspeth, Knight-Errant. He is more popular in midrange white decks ever since he was printed. I think his abilities are more relevant here. He can even animate himself and equip something if it comes to that.
Generally, I think 21 Lands, 4 Sorcery, 4 Instant, 2 Planeswalker, 6-7 Equipment, 22-23 creatures will work. Having only 19 creatures is quite risky, especially if you play against removal heavy decks like control (removal into Snapcaster buyback and/or boardwipes), Jund/Junk, etc.
