Horizon Canopy Discussion

Cool deck but I would definitely add Knight of the Reliquary and Voice of Resurgence and definitely some ramp in the forms of Noble Hierarch and Birds of Paradise. Your mana base should be improved with 4 Windswept Heath and about 4-6 more w/g fetches and possibly a Stirring Wildwood or two and a Horizon Canopy if you can afford it.its your deck but i feel you need these changes to be competitive.

I play all Death & Taxes variants, and go 3-1 and 4-0 in FNMs fairly consistently at multiple locations. Mono-White D&T, GW Hatebears, & BW Eldrazi & Taxes are very fun to play, and highly customizable. A few things you could change:
I'm personally not a big fan of Phyrexian Revoker. I can understand its use, but I feel like it doesn't do too much in the majority of matchups it comes in. I'd personally prefer a 1 of Smuggler's Copter for an early flying attacker that can help smooth out your draws and make your small creatures more useful.
Aven Mindcensor should never be run over a copy of Leonin Arbiter. Leonin Arbiter is core to the deck, and should never, ever dip below 4. The reason to run Aven Mindcensor is to have more search hate in addition to Leonin Arbiter.
Shefet Dunes can be very helpful to you to keep Eldrazi Displacer flickering creatures, as well as becoming a way to push for damage.
While this is a personal preference, I also think it is a current overall meta call. I prefer Kitchen Finks over Mirran Crusader for a few reasons. Kitchen Finks helps a lot against aggro, and it matches up better than Mirran Crusader against popular removal except for Fatal Push (which still isn't very effective). Not only this, but with flicker effects you can reset it so it can use persist again, and you can gain additional life.
I think that Horizon Canopys should also be in here optimally, but I figure that your choice not to include them is likely due their cost, so I can respect that.
For your mainboard, I think I'd do something like this:-1 Phyrexian Revoker-1 Aven Mindcensor-2 Mirran Crusader-2 Plains+1 Leonin Arbiter+2 Kitchen Finks+1 Smuggler's Copter+2 Shefet Dunes
Onto your sideboard, I'll preface this by saying that the sideboard of D&T is largely reliant on personal preference and your local meta. There are even different sideboarding philosophies and techniques. So you're welcome to take my suggestions with a grain of salt, but I'll give you what I think nonetheless.
I'm a HUGE fan of Burrenton Forge-Tender. It does so much. Not only does it slow down Burn's creatures, but even against decks where Lightning Bolt becomes a huge problem, you can protect your key hate creatures. You can also protect your whole team from Anger of the Gods, which will often get sided in when playing against noncreature red decks. I'd consider going up 1-2 of them.
I'm personally not a huge fan of Wrath of God. It often is just as bad for you. One card that might fulfill a similar role is Declaration in Stone. I use this card to slow down linear creature decks or just when I need to remove large creatures to pressure my opponent quickly. It also does away with tokens quite nicely. While it does give your opponent a clue, if you apply the pressure alongside it, it usually doesn't matter. This might also make it so that Blessed Alliance is less necessary, depending on how you like that card.
I'm not sure if you'd be able to find room for this, but 4 Relic of Progenitus has been incredible from the sideboard. The fact that you can find it pretty reliably every game and that multiples can just translate as a cantrip so that they aren't dead is amazing. It also plays well with Kitchen Finks. I'd highly recommend this option if you have room in your sideboard or are willing to even just test it out. It also slots into your deck well in place of Aether Vial which should come out against the grindy matchups anyway.
One other thing: I'd consider getting rid of 1 of your Eldrazi Displacers, just because they aren't always the greatest in multiples and you are pretty top heavy. One consideration is that you take 1 out and replace it with the Selfless Spirit in your sideboard to free up some sideboard space.
Anyway, these are just my thoughts on it. Looking back at all of this I'm sorry I just gave you a wall of text to sift through! I hope your experience with Death & Taxes is excellent, that you can do well, and that hopefully I could be some help in the brewing process. If you have any questions on what I'm talking about or further input, I'd be happy to help!

what do you mean you can't fetch for Temple Garden? if by "fetch" you mean fetchland, you absolutely can. you can use a Windswept Heath (which you should replace the Horizon Canopy with) to grab a Temple Garden. replace the Field of Ruin with Sunpetal Grove. once you do that, the only land you'll have that can't produce colored mana for noncreature spells will be the Cavern of Souls, which means you can bump it up to 4. its not about "needing the color fixing", its about having an answer to counterspells. you also made a typo when you said "you don't want lands that don't produce colorless mana". i think you meant "colored", not "colorless". also, Aether Vial isn't mainly about color fixing (merfolk certainly don't use it for color fixing) or etb's. it helps with those for sure, but thats not the main reason people use it. its biggest advantage is the fact that it helps you start pumping out multiple creatures per turn which is pretty much what every aggro tribal deck wants. furthermore your Noble Hierarch could easily be replaced by a Birds of Paradise to save you a ton of money. Nature's Claim should be replaced with Disenchant or Naturalize. you don't want to just give your opponent 4 life.
and you mean "pseudo", not "sudo".

Kappalauzius yeah there's a few things that make the budget tag look weird in this deck, most of them come from this version of the deck being made by me and posted on TappedOut quite some time ago. I originally had it under budget because it didn't have the playset of Horizon Canopy which was an 80$ card at one point (not anymore). Also, a lot of the prices of many of the cards in the deck have actually spiked in just the last few months with the recent success Bogles has been seeing in the competitive scene, as well as Leyline of Sanctity now being a 20$+ card when it used to only be about 12$.
