Geist of the Lonely Vigil Discussion

Heya Foxy!

Based on what I've seen, I'd recommend cutting:

Dusk : This kills 48% of the creatures in your own deck.

Battlegrace Angel : with all your tokens and other angels, you'll rarely have anyone attacking alone.

Confessor : in a lot of cases, this guy won't do much.

Dawn Gryff

Geist of the Lonely Vigil

Ghost Warden/Angelic Page/Anointer of Champions : ditch 2, keep 1. they all do pretty much the same thing. Honestly, I'd axe all 3. There's cooler things you can put in their place.

Graceblade Artisan : not enough auras to make this dude worth it

Guardian of Pilgrims

Herald of Dromoka : there's only two warriors in the deck, so he doesnt have much combo potential

Moorland Drifter

Spectral Rider

Sublime Archangel

Territorial Roc

Weathered Wayfarer

Things I'd suggest adding:

Icatian Crier

Champion of the Parish

Elite Inquisitor

Benalish Marshal

Glorious Anthem

Commander's Authority

Seraph Sanctuary

Thraben Doomsayer

Mask of Avacyn

Ajani's Mantra


Always Watching

Intangible Virtue

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Unruly Mob

Crusader of Odric

Serra Avatar

Spear of Heliod

Ajani Goldmane

If you want more suggestions, lemme know and I can provide them. IF you need to trim down more creatures, try looking for things that are outside the theme of your deck. For example, it seems your focus is many small white creatures, life gain, big flyers/angels, and +1/+1 counters, so it would make sense to start trimming down by removing things that don't fit with that theme.

Good luck and happy decking! -Toothy

Since the secondary ability of Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs only works with deserts and I'm trying to modernize this deck, I found some potential replacements, as there's no point in including slow lands for a single creature.

Potential Walls

I really like Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch because of how bouncing enemy threats is a big theme of this deck, but I could also see Thing in the Ice  Flip being a replacement for both Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs as well as Striped Riverwinder though it doesn't get Hexproof. Thoughts, comments, suggestions?

Ah! A synergic deck with spirits! Nice! I'd only remove all the Geist of the Lonely Vigil because I don't think you'll be able to get delirium. By the way you could change the deck format to Modern, if I am not mistaken.

Use Tide Drifter over Geist of the Lonely Vigil as its way better for this deck.

The deck might be better off Blue/Colorless rather than white as its better for Eldrazi decks.

Adding some Colorless lands like Wastes, Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, Sanctum of Ugin, Ruins of Oran-Rief might be worth it over the plains.

Some cards worth considering are Dimensional Infiltrator, Mist Intruder, Ruination Guide, Warping Wail, Titan's Presence, Drowner of Hope, Eldrazi Skyspawner, Blinding Drone, Deepfathom Skulker. Most of these might be worth adding over some of your white cards.

I will edit my own blue/Colorless Eldrazi deck and share it with you later to see if you prefer something like it over a blue/white deck.
