Emerge Unscathed Discussion

I have not played that one yet, just the mono white. I thought giving splash with red could give more aggro to the deck. I still have not bought the cards, so I thought coming here for some tips.

You can use Bonds of Faith instead of pacifism You can go x4 Favored Hoplite, same as Hero of Iroas You can also consider a bunch of instant to protect your creatures or draw some cards as it synergises also with "Heroic" if it targets your creatures, I personally suggest Defiant Strike and Emerge Unscathed. For the enchantements, you can go x4 Ethereal Armor aswell, maybe a bunch of Gryff's Boon and I greatly recommend (even if it's a little bit more expensive) Hyena Umbra

not about to tell you to get another deck or a "modern deck", since you already stated this is more a list of what you have to work with rather than a finished deck. I dont know how much modern matches you could observe until now, but modern is a very fast format that evolves mostly around the first 4-6 turns of a game. With that premise, you should start by cutting most of your mana expensive cards from the finished build, they just wont help you win in time or to stay alive. Things like Soul's Majesty, Hunt the Weak, Quietus Spike or Staff of Nin are far to slow to have an impact on your matches. The same goes for your "big" cats like Raksha, Jedit Ojanen and Taj-Nar Swordsmith. Little critters like Infantry Veteran are cheaply costed, but outclassed very easily and dont have enough of a usefull ability. If i were you i probably would drop the equipment/arifact based cards in the deck completely and go more in the direction of +1/+1 counters.
Try to ask around if someone has some Travel Preparations and/or some more Fleecemane Lion's for trade, or buy some of them at your LGS (they are pretty cheap) and up the number of Ainok Bond-Kin. Try to avoid Dragon Bell Monk and Student of Ojutai and try to get some Seeker of the Way instead. They have a better body for a lower cost, get the Prowess bonus from casting your +1/+1 counter spells and combat tricks as well as getting you some more life. Consider Prey Upon to go with them.
Overall advice: try to lower your mana curve so that you have a reasonable chance to play something every turn from t1 to t5, perhaps even mutiple spells from t3 onward, to get your opponent to 0 life as quickly as possible. If you want to stick with GW as your colors and want to use some of your cats, an aggro strategy (poissibly) with +1/+1 counter interactions would be the first thing you should look at. Also cheap, efficient spot removal in form of Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile and Fatal Push are some of the most played cards in modern. If you can do it, try to add something that protects your creatures, or gives you an advantage if they get removed. Something like Brave the Elements, Emerge Unscathed or Shapers' Sanctuary should be a fine solution.
I hope this is what you were looking for. If you have further questions, feel free to ask away.

consider rebound spells like Emerge Unscathed and Distortion Strike...ordeal auras are sweet too like Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea...... idk what the deal is with you Commander.... would you consider an alternate 5 color commander like Maelstrom Archangel just to at least have some kinda benefit/synergy?

21 Plains works, but you can add Secluded Steppe to cycle the flood every once and a while.
I guess Slash of Talons is more flavorful than Righteous Blow? I belive Sunlance is a better removal, but you can at least use them in the sideboard.Alley Evasion really benefits decks that have more ETB effects, you're better off with Gods Willing and Emerge Unscathed.
Expose Evil could be an upgrade to Djeru's Renunciation.
But, instead of that, let's captalize on the Griffin's Vigilance.Try Lashknife, Ramosian Rally and Orim's Cure

cheesewizcheesewiz The reasons I don't use Emerge Unscathed and Shadow Rift is because they don't have the Dragon Monk flavor. And while they are good cards, the theme of this deck isn't making my commander unblockable.
The same thing goes for counter spells. They slow down the tempo of this deck. And this deck is super cheap in cmc cost so this deck recovers very quickly from big removal spells.

eyessky,Akroan Skyguard is just so much better than Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.
But it feels really awkward to have all my creatures as 2-drops, I might try it because sometimes Trailblazer justs sits there doing nothing all game, but at least she dosen't die to bolt.
Yes, I often find myself empty handed. But when it happens my opponent is often so near death that any spell kills either by pinging with Firebrand Archer, direct damage ike Lightning Bolt, trampling with Temur Battle Rage or just giving protection from color allowing free passage with Emerge Unscathed.
If I find myself empty handed and my opponent is not near death, that's a lost game for sure.
