Hi, looks like a fun deck!

Forced Fruition is a fun card in these types of decks, but is better in mill decks and doesn't really synergize with your self-mill wincon.

Consider Fatespinner as another form of pillow-fort. Maze of Ith is very good against many decks as well.

Leyline of Anticipation is another Vedalken Orrery.

Chasm Skulker is another threat you could run that builds up quickly. Toothy, Imaginary Friend as well, plus it draws you even more when it gets removed.

I don't get Evolving Wilds in mono-colored decks, it's just a tapped basic? Consider Myriad Landscape for ramp instead.

Good luck!

Whoah...Morophon is really cool. Best Werewolf commander to date! Plus you could now run white and blue prohibiting effects like Fatespinner or Eidolon of Rhetoric .

Hey man! So I know I said I'd look at the Infestation version of your Black Plague deck next, but when I went to your profile, this deck caught my eye and I had a couple thoughts.

  1. Would you consider changing this from mono-white to Esper Control? The addition of blue and black would give you some really great options for this type of "pillow fort" / stax strategy. Dissipation Field and Fatespinner are a couple cards that spring to mind, in addition to the obvious counterspell / removal / tutor options that those colors give you.

  2. You describe this as a "troll" deck, which tells me it's not necessarily meant for competitive play. In that case, would you consider changing the deck format to Legacy or Casual instead? Because then there's several cards I'd recommend that aren't Modern-legal but that I think would be great.

  3. I thought of a possibly very fun, stupid version of this deck! LoL. But really, you'd want to abandon Modern to make this most effective. Stuff the deck with enchantments that lock down the opponent, then on turn 7, cast Enduring Ideal , and spend the rest of the game sitting there tutoring and cheating out whatever enchantments you want. (Including Auras, and since they aren't being cast, they can actually be attached to creatures with Shroud and Hexproof!) Sphere of Safety will be one of your best cards, then! And even if you hate the idea of Enduring Ideal, you could still go enchantment heavy, in which case Idyllic Tutor is a must-include.

For some other white cards you might consider, there's Chronomantic Escape — 3 mana initial investment for full protection from combat every third turn. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker would also be a great include, particularly against burn decks, since they don't rely on combat, which is the main thing you shut off in the current version of the deck. Finally, include a single copy of Blazing Archon in the deck to have a good play as the game goes long.

Add Fatespinner as a way of keeping your opponents a half-turn behind.

Sorry if any of these are in the deck. I'm admittedly just copying and pasting a post I did for another Lavinia list.

Fatespinner (this card is amazing), Thorn of Amethyst , Sphere of Resistance , Defense Grid , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Torpor Orb , Kataki, War's Wage , Tocatli Honor Guard , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Rite of Replication , Winter Orb , Rising Waters , Stasis , and Static Orb are all options as you tweak this for your meta.
