Honor of the Pure Discussion
1 day ago
I'd cut Hall of Triumph for Honor of the Pure or any of the other white enchantment anthems. Right now Vandalblast hurts you really badly, and not being completely dead in the water after a Vandalblast would help. At the very least Spear of Heliod is better.

I've played Esper Hatebears in Modern before and honestly it's just kind of "meh."
You basically mess with your opponent a bunch, they topdeck a large creature or win condition, and then you can't race them with your 2/2s. The issue I had was there really wasn't a way to pump your team up consistently. Little Kid decks have Gavony Township and Wilt-Leaf Liege. D&T has Honor of the Pure affect every creature you play.
It's not like you have Wasteland and Rishadan Port, either, to really make the most out of Aether Vial. You get your mana freed up so you can attack with Creeping Tar Pit and Shambling Vent more easily, but often those slow you down when you want to play Thalia, Guardian of Thraben or Geist of Saint Traft on-curve.
Then there's the whole not having Collected Company thing. You're also not a deck that plays blue or black's strongest cards in Modern. You get Fatal Push and Meddling Mage, which is nice, but Dark Confidant is too slow in the deck, Liliana of the Veil does almost nothing,Snapcaster Mage has too few targets, and Serum Visions isn't what you want at all. There are a plethora of useful planeswalkers for the deck, but at that point you'll just be wondering "Why am I not playing tokens?"
Go with Spirits, Bant/Abzan CoCo, Maverick, Little Kid Abzan, W/B D&T, or really any deck that isn't Esper Hatebears. The deck just doesn't have enough "oomph!" in it to close out games once you've locked your opponent down the way other hatebear decks can. You also can't outrace decks like Naya Burn or Zooicide, but at the same time, don't have enough hate to deal with so many different threats (like, you'll name Lightning Bolt with Meddling Mage and they'll just kill you with Lava Spikes anyway).

zephyr_chang you seem to have forgotten that they are not just 1/1's and 2/2's they get buffed from card like Wizened Cenn and Honor of the Pure and get protected with Brave the Elements. despite there lack of power i tend to have at lest 2 creatures out almost all the time and yes the opponent has some creatures as well but i can ether exile them with Path to Exile or make my team unblockable with Brave the Elements and if all else fails i swing in the air with Spectral Procession that can get buffs from Honor of the Pure.as for the lands, i am well aware that theirs is only 18 lands, this deck can not risk the chance of it getting mana-flooded, it needs to keep drawing gas or it will fizzel, yes not a lot of mono decks run fetches but with the life gain from Knight of Meadowgrain and the need to keep drawing gas i can afford it
I thank you for your interest in this kithkin deck, however this is my casual variant if you truly wish to asist in my competitive kithkin deck please check it out here: Kithkin's for the win 2.0

Great deck! Monowhite soldiers was also my first EDH. Here are some recommendations that the ever-helpful tappedout community hasn't already given you:
Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant makes all of your creatures nigh-indestructible.
Mass Calcify is a decent boardwipe in a monowhite deck that's under a dollar.
Devout Invocation can give you a massive army.
Enlightened Tutor can get those useful artifacts and enchantments that you need to make everything huge.
For card draw, maybe look into Culling Dais. It's a janky card, but you have the tokens to spare and by the time you're topdecking you can probably refill your hand.

I love Hero of Bladehold! But she's probably too high in Mana cost since I don't always get 4 land in a game. As for Accorder Paladin, I have him in a mono-white knight deck and he works great but I wasn't sure if he would have a spot in this deck. Not sure what I would take out for him. And I used to run Honor of the Pure but it doesn't work well with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben so I tried to make the deck centered around creatures.

AWESOME deck. I have several suggestions. Honor of the Pure would be a great buffer for your deck. Accorder Paladin would also fulfill this requirement. Also, you couldn't go wrong by putting in Hero of Bladehold.

Oloro: The plan was to hopefully have Honor of the Pure and Field Marshal out to keep my creatures out of lightning bolt range. While I'm not denying that Thalia's Lieutenant would be a great choice, I don't feel it necessitates cutting anything else for it.

Oloro and Reeljazz: Most of the soldiers aren't humans so I'm not really willing to cut for the Innistrad picks like Thalia's Lieutenant. They are really good picks but I just don't really feel like playing them ._.
My explanation for the Devouring Light is that it has convoke, and if all goes well I should have either enough creatures untapped, through either vigilance or token generation that I can cast it for free, or at least low enough that it makes it rather useful.
Arian: Metallic Mimic is great, but the issue with it is that both U/W Monument and Cat Tribal is a thing in Standard so its price is comparable to Field Marshal. I'll take the additional 1 to the CMC for a creature that gives +1/+1, first strike, and gets buffed by Honor of the Pure
Other than that I tried to mix everyone's recommendations into a decent blend, though I would really like more feedback!
