Ethereal Haze Discussion

I'm going to let you know from experience, you need to buy some turns. Mill needs time to work as it isn't quite as efficient as burn. With mill, single target removal simply won't cut it, especially with go-wide decks. I would put in some global effects that buy you some time. Darkness is my favorite and only costs 1. Crypt Incursion is another that gains you life most decks have a hard time coming back from.
Personally, I've splashed white in mine to open up a world of SB defensive cards, and dedicate one color purely to defense. I use Path to Exile in conjunction with Archive Trap, but it still needed more. Then I added Ethereal Haze as a fog effect, and the deck is an armored mill machine.
Remand is also a time buyer that replaces itself. Definitely one of my favorite utility cards to use with mill.

I'm not actually certain that you need green here. Fog is sortof a weak card, since it doesn't actually answer any threats, it only buys you a turn. Regardless, if it's an effect you want to have, white already has Ethereal Haze.
I also think Kitchen Finks and Thragtusk should be on your radar. A near way to go green would also be Glittering Wish to get a Verdict, Detention Sphere, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Fracturing Gust etc. from the board.

If your just getting into modern, here's my take to help you play a mill deck with a sideboard for the format modern.
Game 1 is full throttle wincon. Put enough disruption in to get the job done as fast as possible to see what you're up against. The sideboard is used to fill in defensive holes games 2&3. Mill catds shouldn't be included in the SB, they don't help you. You need to buy more time to make the deck work.
That being said, you need to drop from the SB the following:
These cards are too expensive and do too little, too late.
Visions of Beyond- (you already have 3 in MB)
I would suggest MB your Crypt Incursions, as well. These have done SO.MUCH for me, and many decks have a hard time coming back from your lifegain.
Consider for your SB, going Esper. Add like 5 plains, a couple Ethereal Haze, Darkness, Ghostly Prison (for go-wide decks) or Holy Day, to stop combat damage. Perhaps some Path to Exile to set up a free Archive Trap trigger. Seek can proactively find and remove GY reshufflers like the Eldrazi titans (Emerakul, Ulamog), and artifacts/enchantments like Leyline of Sanctity, Elixir of Immortality, and Wheel of Sun and Moon.

Mono blue has a hard time getting around aggro decks, without stuffing it full of cheap bounces, or saving all of your mana for one spell.
My suggestion? You may want to splash white land in your sideboard and put in 3 Holy Day/Ethereal Haze, and 3 Ghostly Prison for decks that go wide. You only have to minimize damage and buy time, so a 3+ cost boardwipe isn't necessary for this deck. You can then out in cards like Open the Armory to help find your Fraying Sanitys, and Path to Exile to not only help with removal, but to help set up a free Trap.
Alternately, you can splash black and go for Darkness, or Murderous Cut. This also opens up more mill potential with cards like Breaking and Mind Funeral and a few other interesting SB choices: Surgical Extraction and Extirpate are popular in mill.
Either way, mono blue probably won't cut it games 2-3 with this deck. You're probably going to have to splash another color.

Kill spells are OK, but if you're up against a deck that goes wide, you're in trouble.
I would suggest mainboard either Crypt Incursion, a card that most decks can't bounce back from; or Darkness, it works well with Mesmeric Orb. Mill fails because it needs time to work most players aren't prepared to invest. Buy the turns you need with boardwide damage stops.
I personally run Esper mill with Path to Exile as another Archive Trap trigger, and Ethereal Haze to fog combat and non combat damage. Also opens up a world of defense for the sideboard. Just, something to consider.
This looks like a solid build. +1 from me.

I have been running a mono white knight deck for a good 6-8 years. and it was me first ever actually good deck. here are my suggestions. first off put in Knight of the Holy Nimbus it is and incredible 2 drop that not only has a cool ability (flanking it also has free regeneration. second add in Kinsbaile Cavalier and Hero of Bladehold they really set the game in your favor.also replace your honor of the pure with things like Armored Ascension and Spirit Mantle the main purpose of those is to get your creatures around there blockers and to start hitten their face more often.then also add a card calledCathars' Crusade it synergies es nicely with Hero of Bladehold really makes a huge punch when you deal 6 more dmg to the opponent when they were not expecting it. also something that helps you survive much longer and simply win games more is a card called Martyr of Sands then add a few one of cards that will help but you dont need a lot of them to do so. Pariah synergises well with your Knight Exemplar.Lifelink you know for life. Ethereal Haze this is a good card for when your opponent has like unshockable stuff or even infect so you can use this and get your board state up while they waste their spells. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a god land in here and lets you drop your game enders sooner. Odric, Master Tactician is a good one of that also synergieses really well with Hero of Bladehold and allows you to make practically everything that turn unshockable.so to sum up-2 lands Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx-4 Student of Warfare+4 Knight of the Holy Nimbus-2Mirran Crusader-4 Honor of the Pure-5 2 drops pick the ones that you like though i would suggest Knight of the Holy Nimbus and half in half Knight of Meadowgrain and Knight of the White Orchid +4 Hero of Bladehold+4 Spirit Mantle+4 Ethereal Haze+3 Martyr of Sands+1 Pariah+1 Lifelink+2 Armored Ascension+1 Odric, Master Tactician+2 Cathars' Crusade

as for Intimidation Bolt, in the situation you have been overrun by creatures, you would be better off Boros Charm the face and cast a fog effect and untap and bolt the face again would be your best chance. for fog cards id look at Kami of False Hope, Holy Day, Ethereal Haze, Angelsong, Dawn Charm or Repel the Abominable. they are all very specific so carefuly read the text when desiding you fog (if you want one at all)
