Hm, I don't know, man... but, the mix of creatures you're running seems really sloppy. I mean, what is the Isamaru, Hound of Konda good for? And the 4 copies of Cryptic Serpent and Delver of Secrets  Flip being bounced back to your hand due to the effect of Awoken Horror  Flip look a little out of place.

I love UW Control, and I play it myself as TrUWe Control. I know some cards are hella expensive, like Snapcaster Mage, Celestial Colonnade and Cryptic Command, but you have a lot of cheap options that are nearly auto-include in any azorius build:

  • Serum Visions - our one and only cantrip in modern.
  • Blessed Alliance - although this is not necessarily a 4-of, is aggro kryptonite and you need some.
  • Path to Exile - THE Removal for modern. Just had its third or fourth reprint, so it's time to get yours.
  • Detention Sphere - doesn't really seems like mainboard material, right? haha But, I've been using two and they're extremely useful.
  • Aaaand lands. You run so few lands. You'd might want to use some more, since you can't afford losing land drops.

But then you might ask yourself: "How the fuck will I win if I just take out all of my creatures?". Yes, that's though. Awoken Horror  Flip by itself is a solid wincon, but he gets Fatal Pushed very easily, so you can't relay solely on him to win. I'd recommend some planeswalker, like Gideon Jura (who is having a recent price spike) and Elspeth, Sun's Champion and even Narset Transcendent, but I don't know about your budget.

Anyhow, I hope my tips helped anything about your list.See ya!

Aethaleon I like the swap for Knight of the White Orchid for Loyal Retainers I don't know why it never crossed my mind. I like the card a lot but if I don't abuse it early on I always felt it was a dead draw so this should be a solid swap. I will playtest Gideon Jura for Rule of Law tonight when I hit up the shop!

Aethaleon Mind's Eye is good, and I have considered adding it. Card draw is great, but it isn't a priority addition. I have cards like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in this deck for game enders with card draw. If I play him, and he is not answered I win on the spot. Draw + 12/12 body + annihilator is just disgusting. I have enough cycling in this deck, and have played enough games where card draw is good, but doesn't need to be a priority. Currently my biggest priority is finding ways to add Gideon Jura, and Loyal Retainers as both cards could make this deck just painful to play against. Gideon Jura would work so well with Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Loyal Retainers would be insane due to the amount of pressure the legendary creatures in this deck force. If they are removed which of course players who play against this deck enough will be prepared to remove some of the big hitters asap, but Loyal Retainers adds an option to bring back cards that were answered. I really like Oketra's Monument, and I think I will just remove Pearl Medallion for it. Prototype Portal is interesting, and I will also give it a playtest. Thank you for the suggestions.

Aethaleon I really like the suggestions you dropped however the cards you suggest I remove also have cycling, and this is a mono-white deck, and card draw is needed. I don't plan to remove any of the cards in this deck with cycling. Ancient Den will 100000% be added, and Quarantine Field I will playtest but I will try to find a different card to swap out as Cast Out has flash + cycling. So if I was to remove something it would be Oblivion Ring instead but I am trying to add removal, not remove it so we will see how this plays out considering it is becoming insanely difficult to find cards to swap out because almost every card in the deck has a solid use. Currently the only somewhat solid card I feel I can swap out is Sword of Light and Shadow but even that is hard to swap out for something else. Thank you for the suggestions.

Mizzazzi great suggestion, and I will attempt to find a way to play test it as someone in the shop I play at just traded me for my Foil Hapatra for there EDH deck! As for the Gideon. Trials is solid but I feel Gideon Jura is the planeswalker that needs to be added if I add a new one because of the additions such as Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Authority of the Consuls and he is just a good planeswalker. So thank you for the suggestions, and I will look into adding the angel.

Looking for suggestions on what to add into my Mono-white deck. I am pretty deadset on finding a way for Loyal Retainers and Gideon Jura I think. They would be great additions but finding cards to remove for them or anything really has become difficult. Looking for suggestions on what to cut for cards from the maybeboard, and always open to other suggestions! Please suggest what to remove if you can!

RUST-O Yeah I really wanna fit Loyal Retainers and Gideon Jura into this deck both would be so good. War Priest of Thune also would be great! So hard to find cuts. Only worthy cut I can find is Linvala, the Preserver for Gideon Jura ._.

I dislike White Sun's Zenith - I think Secure the Wastes is better (and I would run 2 of them). You may have too many cantrips - I would run Serum Visions or Think Twice, but not both. A secondary win condition may also be in order - I'm partial to Elspeth, Sun's Champion, but something like Gideon Jura is also acceptable. I also like the Blessed Alliances maindeck in this era of Reality Smashers and Death's Shadows.
