Near-Death Experience , and my personal favorite, Divine Intervention .



Also, little tidbit: your Test of Endurance + Teferi's Protection isn’t sure fire victory upon phasing in. Test of Endurance and Felidar Sovereign both have intervening if-clauses, meaning an opponent can respond to the triggers and, by a method, get you below the required life total, the triggers will be removed from the stack instead when they try to resolve.

So I really like this deck and it seems like it is fairly resilient. A few things I would consider adding would be more cards that synergize with your life gain strategy and Trostani’s populate ability such as:

  • Angelic Accord More tokens for gaining life in a deck that wants to make tokens and gain life seems like a win to me.

  • Well of Lost Dreams Fantastic way to turn that additional life gain into card advantage.

  • Ajani's Pridemate I saw you already included Ageless Entity which this card functions very close to it so might be worth running both.

  • Congregate This is a nice card that works extremely well in Commander if you need a quick boost in life. Note Congregate reads target player gains 2 life for each creature on the battlefield. Many times, when I would use this card in a commander game I would easily gain 20 plus life off it.

  • Serra Avatar One way to read this card is play Serra Avatar with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice in play and double your life total. Even if you don’t have Trostani out you are still getting in most cases a creature that is well over a 7/7 most games for 7 mana which is a good deal.

  • Aetherflux Reservoir Can function as a secondary WinCon that you can pull out of nowhere. Trust me, play this card when you have an excess life total then instantly activate it taking the player that is the biggest threat out of the game. Also, don’t write off the first ability on the card. You would be surprised how quickly you gain life by just playing spells.

  • Growing Ranks A free populate at the beginning of each of your turns can be extremely strong in this deck.

  • Rootborn Defenses , Sundering Growth Both cards are similar to cards you are already running they just also include populate to further increase your board.

  • Advent of the Wurm 4 mana for a 5/5 trample is straight value plus this will work really well with populate.

  • Armada Wurm 6 mana for a 5/5 trample that also creates a 5/5 trample wurm token. 10 power for 6 mana plus gaining a token works with populate.

  • Glare of Subdual In a deck that wants to go wide this can quickly shut down opponents from attacking you.

  • Blade of Selves and Herald of the Host Both of these cards work extremely well with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice . How they work is you attack with either Herald of the Host or the creature Blade of Selves is equipped to and let the myriad ability activate creating a copy of the creature that is attacking your other opponents. Normally the tokens created off the myriad ability would be exiled at the end of combat but, if you use Trostani, Selesnya's Voice ’s populate ability during your combat phase you can create an additional copy of the token that will stay in play after the combat phase is over because, it was created using the populate mechanic and not the myriad mechanic. Even if you don’t populate the tokens that were created Trostani, Selesnya's Voice ’s life gain ability will still trigger off the tokens gaining you a lot of additional life. The myriad ability also works extremely well with creatures that have enter the battlefield abilities. Imagine this line of play, you equip Blade of Selves to your Terastodon then attack. The myriad ability triggers and you put two additional token copies of Terastodon into play attacking your other opponents. When those Terastodon tokens enter the battlefield they trigger their enter the battlefield ability allowing you to remove up to six other noncreature permanents (three from each of the Terastodon’s that came into play). Also imagine Blade of Selves attached to Serra Avatar you would be tripling your life total each time you attack as long as Trostani is out.

A few cards I would personally consider removing Thrun, the Last Troll , Primal Surge , Godsend , Strionic Resonator , Woodfall Primus , Rout (maybe consider replacing Rout for Martial Coup which seems more on theme for a token deck) Felidar Sovereign , (I get why you added him but winning with Felidar in commander seems like a cheap way to win.)

A lot of these cards really don’t seem on theme for either gaining more life or creating tokens. Personally, I would look at replacing a lot of these creatures with creatures that make tokens when they come into play like Armada Wurm that you can use to populate or cards that synergize with your life gain like Ajani's Pridemate .

One last thing your combo of Darien, King of Kjeldor + Trostani, Selesnya's Voice does not work exactly as you think. For Darien to trigger the damage has to resolve meaning that if a player deals more damage than your life total at once then you would die before Darien could trigger. As long as you have at least one life after damage resolves and both Darien and Trostani are on the field then your combo works, you create the solider token from Darien and, Trostani gives you the life from the token coming into play.

I'm thinking of challenging myself to build a mono-white EDH deck that can at least hold it's own. Doesn't need to be "competitive" in terms of cEDH, but I'd like to be able to hold against numerous opponents.

Haven't settled on a Commander or a theme yet, but I am looking into win conditions to actually close out the game. I'm thinking with enough prisons and such, I can kind of just bide my time. Between wraths, targeted exile, prisons and lifegain I think I can last long enough to play it out.

The win conditions that are reliable enough to make an impression that I know of are the following:

Are there other good ones?

No, I will not be running Aetherflux Reservoir . I personally am of the opinion that it is a terrible "win condition". That's a topic for another day, so let's not discuss it here, okay? I may consider it as a lifegain enabler, but I will not consider it as a win condition.


Also, I'd love to hear some ideas on who would be a good Commander. Should I just choose Oketra / Zetalpa / Norn just so I always have access to them, or should I go for someone cheaper or perhaps better in terms of protecting what I have, such as Avacyn, Angel of Hope ? I know white is very has no ramp outside of generic stones like Sol Ring and Mana Vault , but if I go the route of enchantments / prisons then I at least have access to Serra's Sanctum . That with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could be very beneficial.

So to reiterate, this thread is to discuss WIN CONDITIONS in mono-white, but if you have a decent suggestion on who should be at the forefront of the deck, feel free to share that as well.

Thanks :)

Pattern of Rebirth is another good tutor that can fetch Felidar Sovereign when your commander is destroyed. it's an underused card in my opinion.

Darth_Savage on Rider Life Gains

Pioneer is a fun format and the meta just received a shake up, but even so, the power level of decks can swing closer to Modern than Standard. Which I guess brings me to your deck, conventional wisdom is that life-gain for the sake of life-gain is not a good strategy. Normally a deck aiming to gain life will run Approach of the Second Sun or Felidar Sovereign a win condition based on what your deck wants to do. You're not running these though, instead you have a deck primarily made up of 2 CMC creature spells. That casting cost is relevant because, that's the cost that Fatal Push alongside others like Legion's End kill.

Don't get me wrong, Lone Rider is a cool card, but it needs better support. Healer's Hawk, is a cheap efficient enough creature, but Sacred Cat represents an easy 2-for-1. I'd swap Adanto Vanguard to Wall of Essence spending removal on a wall is a bad deal, but if your opponent doesn't it can gain you significant life. I'd run straight removal Declaration in Stone or Stasis Snare rather than Dromoka's Command. I'd also suggest you look at Blind Obedience this stalls your opponent and lets you spend extra mana. In green there is also Feed the Clan which might come in useful...

I hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Approach is used to go around having to do direct damage, alternate win con, feeds both Aetherflux Reservoir and Felidar Sovereign . But you're right, god-eternal oketra wants creatures to be casted repetitively. Any other creatures like stormfront riders that bounce more than one creature back?

Ok, so this thread kinda blew up more than I expected, so forgive me for the monster text.

To avoid a massive wall of text, I will divide my responses in spoiler blocks to ease the view.
