Hey, looks good nice Extraplanar Lens :)

Consider more lands? 29 lands is low for a 3.6 avg. CMC. This low amount of lands also needs a low avg. CMC, not more than 2.0 which will be difficult to achieve unless you cut a large amount of high CMC cards. Consider 36 lands?

Consider more flying? Flying is evasion that you want to be able to consistently with Odric give all your creatures including Odric to do Commander damage.

Odric can give your creatures indestructible which is powerful from sources such as Gideon Blackblade or Bastion Protector . Precinct Captain , Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are creatures who can be repeatable sources of tokens. Legion's Landing  Flip and Adanto, the First Fort is a good land with token strategies. Hour of Revelation is a powerful board wipe for mono white in multiplayer Commander.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angelic Chorus
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Mass Calcify
  • Angel of Glory's Rise
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Skyspear Cavalry
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Dictate of Heliod
  • Norn's Annex
  • Ajani's Welcome
  • High Ground
  • Solemn Offering
  • Deploy to the Front
  • Sword of the Animist
  • Chitinous Cloak
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Riot Control
  • War Report
  • Hopeful Eidolon

Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:

You do also need some cards to add support which you have a few of but these three are pretty hefty; Iroas, God of Victory , Purphoros, God of the Forge and Hero of Bladehold .

You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .

Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:

I know your goal isn't to nessecarily win via commander damage but these two cards I find are helpful and threaten any opponent usually... Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice

Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs

Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

My first thought would be to reduce the number of lands you control that enter the battlefield tapped. They're a significant issue for this deck IMO, since WB doesn't have access to especially good acceleration as-is. Your enchantment suite is good, though I'd be cautious about Luminarch Ascension (I wouldn't run it without Cataclysm in the deck).

I find that Damnable Pact is generally a bad return on card draw; I'd run something like Vampiric Tutor to grab Skullclamp instead. I'm not convinced by The Elderspell here unless you play in a meta with a significant number of PWs (this deck isn't generally one where you want to eat your own PWs to get a boost in loyalty). Careful with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - he can sometimes backfire when you'd rather get the death trigger than the token. Swords to Plowshares is significantly better than Path to Exile in this deck. I'd cut one land for Fellwar Stone , probably. I'm surprised not to see Lightning Greaves in here, since it's good at protecting Elenda from the dreaded exile effects. The other glaring exclusion is Toxic Deluge , which is an INCREDIBLE board wipe for this deck (since you can tailor it to not kill Elenda under most circumstances, and immediately gain back far more life). I'm curious if you've considered Bolas's Citadel , since it works very well with Pox -style effects in a deck like this that can gain back life. From your maybeboard, I'd most highly recommend Fleshbag Marauder , Hero of Bladehold , Merciless Executioner , Reaper from the Abyss , and Sadistic Hypnotist .

Hope that helps! Deck looks pretty good to me ;) and I'm flattered by you linking my primer in the description!

You may want another anthem effect like honor of the pure. You could go with something like Benalish Marshal or Hero of Bladehold .

Have you considered Leonin Warleader instead of Hero of Bladehold ? Idk if it fits your deck better, I’m just curious to hear your opinions about it. Also, Divine Visitation would instantly make any tokens big threats.
