Creature — Human Monk
Geist-Honored Monk's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creatures you control.
When Geist-Honored Monk enters the battlefield, put two 1/1 white Spirit creature tokens with flying onto the battlefield.

Geist-Honored Monk Discussion

It all depends on the competitiveness you are going for. I am not the best helper when it comes to the competitive scene since i am more of a casual player, so i won't be able to help you make it really competitive if that's what you are going for with the build.
If you are a casual player, i would recommend running cards you enjoy and would love to use.
However i will come with my thoughts on the cards :) Depending on your budget i would run 2-3 copies of Geist of Saint Traft (Keep in mind the legend rule when playing). Selfless Spirit i think you are primarily running it for it's sacrifice ability than the body itself.
Eidolon of Countless Battles seems pretty fun as a one of could possibly be a big threat in the late game
For me Daxos of Meletis seems pretty solid to with just the first ability. Think of the combo between Daxos of Meletis and Invocation of Saint Traft or Eidolon of Countless Battles boosting him. Invocation of Saint Traft could be a possible suit for the deck to?

Ok, so my deck (from what I can tell) this deck seems to be very close to being done, what I am doing now is after some play testing for a while (now to be fair, my internet is out and I playtest on Cockatrice, so I had to playtest against myself and using the other deck I build and maybe 1 or 2 others) and I have found the top 4 cards that underpreforme the most in my deck
Now the first card I know I am not getting rid of is Path to Exile, It does come in use but either dosent pop up enough to be useful (Maybe I should add 2 extra) or I already have managed to get 30, 2/2 tokens with flying and vigalance, so it dosent seem to make the biggest difference.
Selfless Spirit does become kinda useless if I get him any other time I am not doing the finisher, sacfificing him to make all of my creatues invincable usually ends in me winning that turn, or the next one. But other then that there is not really any other time he becomes useful.
Now the two others, Drogskol Cavalry, and Seize the Soul are my final two, and are the two I do think can be replaced, or in the form of Drogskol Spirit, add something to it to make it stronger. Seize the Soul just has too high mana cost and dosent really shine. If there is a time i can cast him, there is usially two or three other spells I can cast that would help me more then him, even in the long run
Crested Sunmare- Would Replace Seize the Soul. I dont know how to feel about him. I know its not a spirit but him and Drogskol Cavalry could be a good match up. (if only Crested Sunmare created Spirit tokens))
Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts- Would Replace Seize the Soul or Drogskol Cavalry. This one is my absolute favorite on the list. She has protection from creatures and vigalance so as long as an ability says other wise, I can attack with her anytime. She also creates tokens when I get damage, so if I had 4 of her (or at least 2 or 3) then I would get 2-4 (with Anointed Procession)
Any Ideas from either the final touches, or the beginning of this deck XD, would be awesome. Thank you

You might want to fit in some more mana rocks/dorks to better support the paradox engine (and brago with the rocks). Derevi is very good with some of the bigger mana rocks that don't untap, such as Basalt Monolith, Mana Vault, and Grim Monolith. In addition, Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Progress, and Talisman of Unity are some great 2-mana rocks. Noble Hierarch and Birds of Paradise are some strong mana dorks. Some other strong mana dorks include Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways.
Some creatures that generate tokens on etb might be nice to synergize with Derevi and the flicker theme. Avenger of Zendikar is one of the best, and Geist-Honored Monk, Captain of the Watch, and Hornet Queen are some other strong options. There are some other good options that also have other nice effects. Knight-Captain of Eos can fog for a turn by sacrificing one of his tokens, while Whirler Rogue can make a creature unblockable by tapping down his spawn.
Your tap/untap shenanigan package is on the weaker side at the moment, but there are some nice options for you to consider. Nullmage Shepherd lets you tap your stuff to blow up artifacts/enchantments while synergizing nicely with tokens, and Adarkar Valkyrie protects your stuff and steal your opponent's. Reconnaissance is a great inclusion in any Derevi deck for giving your team pseudo-vigilance, but can also let you use an attacking creature's tap ability infinitely as long as its free. You can use this to generate infinite mana in the combat step with a mana dork, draw your deck with Arcanis, or activate Adarkar Valkyrie on every creature before wiping the board.

random comment as I stumbled upon your reaction somehow somewhere.... You can put all cards you consider in the maybeboard, this way it won't interfere with the deck stats and still show up with the rest of the deck.
Also, depending on your idea of the deck, I'd consider some more ramp. Cards like Basalt Monolith or Mana Vault go crazy with brago blinking them. I'd not run Geist-Honored Monk as it doesn't seem like it would give enough value. You should probably also run Eldrazi Displacer

Simple token deck, white seems like the way to go. Trying to minimize $$$ spent on this, I am just poor boy from countryside.
3 main elements:-Tokens - the triggerers - 14 token generating spells, notable instants Secure the Wastes and Raise the Alarm could come in handy in a pinch for blocking, especially if they can juice the Hanweir or Geist. Those flying spirits from Spectral Procession are also a nice little boost.
- Creatures - the triggerees - Geist-Honored Monk and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip are the obvious beneficiaries of all the tokens, they will pack the punch of the deck. Mirrorweave and Brave the Elements will let their armies punch through any defense. Mentor of the Meek is built for this type of deck also.
Suggestions appreciated! Inexpensive, don't you know.

Alright, I think I'll try cutting Geist-Honored Monk and Juniper Order Ranger as you said but I am not quite sold on Heirloom Blade and cutting Gisela, the Broken Blade. I just recently moved Heirloom Blade out my list because I just felt that it did not do enough to consider running it. As for Gisela I have come across the occasion quite some time that Gisela, the Broken Blade along with Odric, Lunarch Marshal have carried some Games single handedly. Cutting Heron's Grace Champion might still be worth a though and I am really interested how you would suggest to bring in the cards you mentioned in your first post since you got a point, some of those are really handy despite the limitations I mentioned. Another thing i'd like to hear your opinion on is whether I should keep running Always Watching , despite my list becoming somewhat more Token heavy, I still consider it a really good card.

All right. Edit one I would make: remove Geist-Honored Monk and Juniper Order Ranger and put in Cultivate and Kodama's Reach. You need the ramp and the monk and ranger are too slow. If you want to keep Geist-Honored Monk, use Crusader of Odric instead.
