Thanks for the feedback Javyduarte. I guess I'm sort of trying to control things with the Banishing Light and End Hostilities but I can truly never go full on control because I like creatures to defend me at the same time.
I did make a couple of changes yesterday that I'm trying out. I removed the 2 Brimaz, King of Oreskos and put in 2 Prophet of Kruphix . I also removed 1 End Hostilities and put in another Elspeth, Sun's Champion .
Oh, the Theros Elspeth is trash in Modern. A six mana spell needs to literally win the game on the spot, which Elspeth, Sun's Champion doesn't necessarily do. By the time she could come down, a Knight-Errant made the same amount of tokens and has the opportunity to go much more aggressive. Six mana in general is too much in Modern.
OK. back to what i was saying. Whispersilk Cloak , Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm can be substituted for Preordain , Serum Visions . Trading Post , Goblin Rabblemaster , and Mana Geyser get DAS BOOT for Propaganda , Norn's Annex and Ghostly Prison . keep those attackers off you while YOU swing. Reconnaissance , Righteous Authority and Clout of the Dominus get cut for Foresee Assemble the Legion and Skullclamp . Muddle the Mixture as of right now does nothing youd want in the deck. Enlightened Tutor baby. And finally youre thinking "Chandra, the Firebrand copys my spell!!" which is fine. but you want planeswalkers that give you value on your turn and then the following. 1dmg to a target creature or player is bobo. replace her and Trading Post with Gideon Jura and Elspeth, Sun's Champion
See my deck here: Lingering Spirits
The main differences in our decks are that I have Brave the Elements where you have Tidehollow Sculler , and I have 1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion and 1 Sorin, Solemn Visitor instead of 2 Elspeth, Knight-Errant . I like Sun's Champion and Sorin a lot, I feel they are solid choices.
I also have 1 Spear of Heliod (repeatable removal +anthem), a set of Brimaz, King of Oreskos , and no Inquisition of Kozilek . So you have 6 more slots of hand disruption but I have more anthems, protection, and Brimaz. I think the amount of disruption you have is dependent on your meta, not saying my way is better than yours just different.

So Khans has really shaken up the price of standard. So much so that alot of people are worried about investing in any "Money Cards" at the moment not just from Khans, but from all standard sets. Let me take a moment to break down some solid investments choices for all you guys out there that like to not only play Magic, but invest in it like myself.
Khans - I have already posted a long thread in regards to what is happening with Khans at the moment. Please see that for more indepth review.
Buy - At the moment, not much really..... The only thing I would suggest scooping up right now from Khans would be playsets of Fetches as a long term investment, but waiting a few weeks would be a better option to get rock bottom pricing.
Sell - Anything you dont need..... Seriously.
Buy - Nothing really at the moment.
Sell - Nissa, Worldwaker Pretty sure she is WELL past her prime to see a dip very soon.
Keep - There is alot to hold on to from this block. Alot of people are hoarding some key players that will see rises in price in the short term for sure or will at least hold value. Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Keranos, God of Storms , Courser of Kruphix and Sylvan Caryatid are all prime examples. These guys are staples and will hold close to where they currently are. Hold and dump closer to Rotation. As for Longterm investment Thoughtseize currently in the $22-$30 range, will drop a bit over the next 6 months, but come post-rotation, this is an easy $50 bill. Similar statement can be said for Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver ($12-$16 Currently)
Buy - My assumption for the largest gainer over the next month or two is Solider of the Pantheon This guy is sooooo underrated at the moment. With the Meta so "Golden" this guy is covered in Win.
Well in a nut shell that should be your biggest gainers, losers and just plain dumps from the current Standard block in my own opinion. Please comment with your own thoughts!
Nice deck, thanks for being so conversational about it and comparisons to other decks!
Thoughts on Brave the Elements and Martial Coup ? I run 4x Brave the Elements as protection and finisher with good results. I'm Testing Martial Coup as a board wipe + finisher combination for when the board gets clogged or the game runs long. I've also seen the wrong side of Faith's Shield finish a game on the spot.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion v. Elspeth, Knight-Errant I don't understand the love for Knight Errant. She either gives you a token which you should already have or if you don't, won't last very long, or gives you a Giant Growth (because all your tokens already have flying). Is the lure of her ultimate? Seems unlikely that you'll get there. T4 I'd rather flashback Lingering Souls and play a second Intangible Virtue , or leave mana open to cast a combat trick.
