I ordered a playset of Blessed Alliance for this deck. Probably swapping out Ghost-Lit Redeemer.

I think Wall of Omens would be very fitting to slow down aggro and get the ETB triggers with some draw power... otherwise perhaps Rest for the Weary/Pulse of the Fields, Pride Guardian/Ghost-Lit Redeemer could be some neat tools to consider for the main board..... then there is the obligatory mono-white SB tech including but not limited to Disenchant, Leyline of Sanctity, Pithing Needle, Rest in Peace. cool deck +1

Lyra Dawnbringer of course, very expensive though :p Shalai, Voice of Plenty is also a very powerful angel.

Pride Guardian and Seal Away defend well against aggro decks. Mother of Runes is a great defensive card for your sideboard.

If you want to be a bit more aggressive, replace the Inspiring Clerics and a few Knight of Meadowgrain for some Glory-Bound Initiates and maybe some Knight Exemplars and Consul's Lieutenants.

I think Cathedral Sanctifier and Pride Guardian are usually better than Ghost-Lit Redeemer.

You could run a Luxa River Shrine for some extra lifegain.

Good luck with the deck, looks awesome!

Just lower the mana curve for modern, u got to many win card and missing utility cards.all of this is only my opinion, your deck is already nice and spicy but i this there is to many pay and tap + instant at 2-3 mana

Invocation of Saint Traft is not super duper worth your time, I don't think. It's better here than most decks, as you've got a decent chance of slapping it on a hexproof creature,

If you want to play this in modern, get a modern sideboard. Pick up Rest in Peace for sure. I'd suggest some strong artifact hate too; Stony Silence is excellent, Hurkyl's Recall is respectable, and you can even stay tribal with Kataki, War's Wage. You have basically no draw, so Spirit of the Labyrinth is a strong option for certain matchups like storm and jeskai control.

If you want to play this in modern, you need a modern landbase. You can get away with buddy lands, and fast lands are fine. But frankly, it would be of enormous help for you to get Hallowed Fountain and Flooded Strand. I understand that might not be in your budget; still, consider it, perhaps as a long term plan. Fetches are as cheap as they'll get now, and tangolands like Prairie Stream will hurt you.

Most important of all, I think; the most played spirits in modern are tokens! Spectral Procession is very strong for you. If you want to splash a teeny bit of black, Lingering Souls is highly modern playable; fetches will help immensely there. I'd also consider Midnight Haunting and Beckon Apparition as being not terrible. Black also offers up options of discard support, which might help you survive in early turns, and also a few decent black spirits.

I'd second the suggestion of lower drop creatures. You will be dead before you can have a significant impact. There are some that are ok. Given how slow the deck is, I would legitimately consider Ghost-Lit Redeemer, Kami of False Hope, Will-o'-the-Wisp and Doomed Traveler. To be perfectly honest, some of them are better than your 3 drops, of which you have some stinkers. I'd also suggest topplegeist, which is pretty strong in conjunction with rattlechain's flash. It works well if you get a few more sorceries, which you should have, and a few more fetchlands, which you should also have.

Faithful Squire is not good enough. Likewise, Spectral Shepherd is almost certainly far too slow. Bygone Bishop is also borderline, as you may well be dead before you ever actually play the card you drew off of your clue token...if the shepherd even lives long enough to investigate.

I know you are trying to run all dual colored cards to trigger Nightsky and synergize with Edge of the Divinity, but I think you are doing yourself a disservice by playing Nip Gwyllion. I would cut it entirely or would recommend one of the following - Serra Ascendant, Martyr of Sands, or Ghost-Lit Redeemer.

Or you could just run Knight of Meadowgrain (also mono colored) since your deck is more aggressive.

I also like running Survival Cache to keep up the tempo and to give you another outlet to get life and card draw.

Some nice Spirit cards are Spectral Procession, Sovereigns of Lost Alara, Topplegeist, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Sky Spirit, Windborn Muse, Phantasmal Image (especially copying the Captain cuz then both get hexproof so it can't get targeted & sacrificed), Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Spectral Rider, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit

Get rid of Geist-Honored Monk, Drogskol Reaver because while really good cards, they are super mana intensive, you should already have the better board if you just flood the board with more efficient lower cost spirits

Azorius Herald does gain you life, but you really don't need it because you can end the game before that's an issue, also Azorius Charm, Cathedral Sanctifier, Ghost-Lit Redeemer, & Honor's Reward are all better options but you really don't need it.

Mindshrieker is super stupid, just no. It essentially costs 4 mana, its not worth it to leave it to fate to decide if the car is good

Latch Seeker is Ok, but there are better options, flying is just as good as unblockable and there are a lot of cheaper spirits that are less fragile and easier to cast, Topplegeist is better.

Doomed Traveler is good, but it has to die first to be useful. It by itself has a no synergy with the rest of the deck. Your opponent could just not kill it and let you hit them for 1 instead of blocking or exile it or something.

Get another Drogskol Captain, Call to the Kindred & Steel of the Godhead, they seem essential to the deck.


Bident of Thassa is too expensive to outweigh its benefit. Use something like 4x Accumulated Knowledge instead.

Instead of Vapor Snag, use Detention Sphere. It's a more permanent solution.

Add more Counter spells such as Mana Leak, Absorb, Dissolve etc. They can make the deck more flexible against random match ups. Make sure they are lower than 4 CMC, other wise they're not worth it... unless it's Ojutai's Command

Rogue's Passage is uselessly expensive, most of your spirits have flying, which is good enough. Use cards like Hallowed Fountain or even a simple Evolving Wilds. Evolving Wilds is good b/c using it basically takes out 2 lands from the deck (Itself and another basic), making it more likely to draw a spirit or something you can actually use instead of another land.

Also, is you take out the high CMC cards, you can cut the amount of lands to 20-22
