Elspeth Tirel Discussion

Cards like Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty seem like they should be making any nonblue control list since there will be some things you just can't reasonably deal with. Avoid Fate is nice against a meta filled with Assassins Trophy.

Adanto Vanguard? Radiant Destiny? I would take out Auriok Steelshaper because you have no Equipment. On the same note, I would also take out Auriok Sunchaser, Auriok Edgewright, Auriok Glaivemaster and Auriok Bladewarden. You may also want either Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth Tirel or Elspeth, Knight-Errant depending on your budget.

Why not some Serra Ascendant?
You have no removals, no counters and no draw cards spells, meaning you just play on the draw. In my personal opinion you are underestimating too much your opponent's deck.
Cards you could consider are: Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring, Auriok Champion, Archangel of Thune, Ranger of Eos, Sun Titan, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Spectral Procession, Martyr of Sands, Baneslayer Angel, Honor of the Pure, Chalice of Life Flip, Windbrisk Heights

Hi! As soon as you play tokens Intangible Virtue is a must. I would also recommend to concentrate on token generators: Elspeth, Sun's Champion,Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Precinct Captain, Attended Knight etc. Akroma, Angel of Wrath is a nice finisher. By the way Akroma's Memorial improves your creatures too. And you need something to boost your Soldier tokens, for example: Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Vanquisher's Banner, Obelisk of Urd. Good luck in brewing!

So, basically, you need to survive till you can cast an angel or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. And that's why you have added Ixalan's Binding, Luminous Bonds and Pacifism, right? In my opinion there is a better choice than the last two cards: Path to Exile.
Then, why don't you add more Cavern of Souls so you can find them easily? Same thing for Avacyn's Pilgrim and Birds of Paradise, since they help you having mana and you could also use them as blockers (are you scare and opponent would kill them? Well, better them than the angels. Or just use Sakura-Tribe Elder). If you want to spend money on it also Noble Hierarch could be a suggestion
You have Anointed Procession and Doubling Season. Could be an idea to add some token generator (Raise the Alarm, Timely Reinforcements) or some planeswalkers (Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Sun's Champion) to protect yourself for the first turns or make a big army in late game?
And, in my opinion, you could add Windswept Heath removing some basic lands. Fetches are always a good idea for me
Last thing, I understand Serum Powder is a really good card cause it lets you take a mulligan drawing 7 cards instead of 6, but I'm not sure about it's utility in the deck

shalai edh update number 2:
out :: 21
Azusa, Lost but Seeking is very expensive. I am very aware she is awesome, so I've added her to a maybeboard if I decide I want to further upgrade this deck. Flickerwisp and Glimmerpoint Stag are removed because I am largely removing flicker effects because the strat is not powerful enough in this deck.
Originally I wanted to take advantage of Shalai, Voice of Plenty's hexproof for planeswalkers, but I didn't make great picks on planeswalkers, and ultimately Karn, Scion of Urza, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion were really the only ones worth it. I can't reasonably afford Karn for this deck, so he has been moved to the maybeboard.
Flicker effects have largely been removed.
Flicker effects have largely been removed. In this case being sorcery speed makes them less valuable, because they cannot be used for avoidance. Fumigate is removed in order to make way for better mass removal.
It's just too expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty does the same thing, and I can just cast her from the command zone.
These are less valuable in a deck that is only 2 colors.
The first 4 of these are just bad, and the last 2 are being removed to make way for more plains.
in :: 21
Powerful spot removal that puts the card where the player can't get it.
Path of Ancestry is good for tribal. Reliquary Tower gives me no max hand size. Homeward Path protects me from effects that take my creatures. Emeria, The Sky Ruin lets me cheat back in dead creatures, and the Plains are added to support Emeria.
Cards for later
expensive, but maybe at some point:

Making some updates to address some of the concerns I have with the early version of this deck:
(no need to have an extreme mana base with this early of a deck version. Expect mana base to continue to change)
(no ETB )
(no ETB, cost reduction on turn 5 not powerful enough)
(expensive value negated by real ramp)
(too expensive for a 2 color deck)
