Honor of the Pure Discussion

I would start out with cutting a lot of those enchantments like, Crusade , Honor of the Pure , Divine Sacrament and Marked by Honor . Why would you want that many anthem effect on already "huge" bodies?

I dont know your meta, but at least in my playgroup i had the problem with mono w angel tribal that its just too slow, So i had to have more removal to even survive.

Cards that i suggest are (There are way more but these come to mind first): Emeria Shepherd - Just too good recursion, gets more out from your grave than Reya, Pearl Medallion - Helps with ramping, Angelic Arbiter - Makes opponents choose between casting or attacking, Guardian of the Gateless - make this guy indestructible and its a golden blocker against go wide decks, Hour of Revelation - Hits all nonland permanents, and in multiplayer game easy to cast for 3 mana, Return to Dust - One of the best spot removals, Brave the Elements - cheap way to protect your dudes from something nasty, Cleansing Nova - Mass removal that lets you choose mode, yes please, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Just way too good mana for mono colored deck,

I'd try to go with playsets. Like he mentioned, it will help with consistency and therefore power. You already have cards in the mainboard that having 4 of would be great. Raise the Alarm , Honor of the Pure , and Secure the Wastes are awesome. If you want to overrun your opponent, most of your offensive threats should be 3 converted mana cost or less. Anything above that should very likely be removed. Otherwise it'll be hard to race people. Legion's Landing  Flip helps here. I also love Spectral Procession . It's great. If you do go a heavy token route than Intangible Virtue is awesome. Also, if you want to keep the deck mono-white without splashing for black, then Signal Pest is good. Black offers options like Lingering Souls and Zealous Persecution .

Always Watching and History of Benalia do not play well together.

You are running mono-white, so why not use the typical staple Honor of the Pure ? Yes, you won't get vigilance, but it's cheaper than Always Watching and your generated knights will also get the boost.

Also, Gideon Jura and Gideon of the Trials don't really work as well as Gideon, Ally of Zendikar with History of Benalia . I would keep the Gideon of the Trials for the Gideon emblem though.

I think this deck has also no real reason for running only 2 Path to Exile . Run a playset!

So, suggestions: -2 Lightning Greaves -2 Inquisitor's Flail -2 Always Watching -1 Gideon Jura -1 Godsend

+2 Path to Exile +4 Honor of the Pure +2 History of Benalia

I think that splashing with black might be the way to go since it would give me access to the flashback feature of Lingering Souls . I like the idea of Priest of Forgotten Gods but I don't think sacking tokens would be a good idea without a way to get them back. I was toying with the idea of using Furystoke Giant as another possible win-con where I turn all the tokens into Shock essentially. Use Cloudshift to bounce Furystoke Giant to recreate the effect, but this would mean going a different direction as far as color splashing but it would open the door to Impact Tremors . The Furystoke Giant was my main idea when I started putting this together but I started looking into as many token generating cards as possible and red sort of worked its way out of the deck. Honor of the Pure seems like a must have card in this build as well as Anointed Procession , I knew there was a card like this out there and that you'd know what it was! I agree that Champion of the Parish probably is not the best fit here, most of the tokens generated aren't specifically human, at least not enough to make it a game changer. What do you think of the Furystoke Giant combo, any cards you think would tie into the general concept?

How to deal with Ratchet Bomb or other boardwipes - that's a big issue. While Brave the Elements does great against targeted removal, something that will prevent global effects will be much more difficult in mono-white. Mana Tithe comes to mind, but isn't particularly reliable. Something like Blood Artist seems like it could be good. If you decide to splash black, Priest of Forgotten Gods might add a second dimension to this otherwise straightforward build. Of course, splashing blue for Negate , etc would work, too. and with green, you'd of course gain access to Heroic Intervention .

It's probably a good idea to have a solid one drop spell to get things rolling on T1, but I have doubts about Champion of the Parish in that slot. Doomed Traveler seems like a better fit, and Soul's Attendant or Soul Warden are sure-bets.

In terms of non-token creatures, Thalia's Lieutenant might also be worth considering, but only to pump any tokens you have in play. At 2CMC, I think it would be competing for mana with your 2-drop token spells. That said, the 4x pumps Intangible Virtue provide won't be reliable. Honor of the Pure , while offering less value in many ways than both Virtue and Lieutenant, is still probably better than the Lieutenant here.

Probably needs at least 2x more lands, if not 4x more to reliably get the mana to cast Elspeth, Sun's Champion . Otherwise, it will likely be a dead card most games. I also suggest reducing Elspeth to 1-2x.

Spells to consider: Impact Tremors , Anointed Procession , Mentor of the Meek

If you splash red for Impact Tremors, Chained to the Rocks might be worth considering.

I'd drop 1x Disenchant for 1x Oblivion Ring , or add at least 3x Oblivion Ring s to the sideboard. I also suggest adding Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Revoke Existence , Teyo, the Shieldmage , and Nevermore to the sideboard.
