Timmmmey on Mono White Soldier, Help Needed

What do you think is wrong with your deck? This is your deck, not mine; here's what I suggest.

Throw in some Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish. They help give you an early lead in the early game.

I feel like Hero of Bladehold costs too much money and mana for what she does.

Are you sure you want to run that many planeswalkers? I run Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip because he is a cheap creature that can flip into a planeswalker. Plus I feel that Elspeth, Sun's Champion costs too much mana too late into the game to be useful as well. You need to lower your average converted mana cost.

If you want the deck to be cheaper run only Plains if you have to.

Daru Warchief isn't legal in modern btw.

Hope this helps!

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could be a good.

Definitely cut a Knight Errant for another Elspeth, Sun's Champion. I mean, she's jut the best :)

I'd cut one Daru warchief in favor of another Mentor of the Meek.

Knight-Captain of Eos is great in EDH. Might be good here.

Hope some of this helps! Take it with a grain of salt; I only play EDH lol!

no offense dude, but Student of Warfare is not a good card. you have to put 3 mana into it before it becomes a 3/3 with first strike. compare that to Mirran Crusader which is also 3 mana. you have too many noncreatures to be using Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. removal is too common in modern to reliably trigger battalion on Boros Elite or Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip. since the deck is mono-white, theres no reason for Flagstones of Trokair or any of the fetch lands. you're just paying life for no reason at that point. again no offense, but its not "perfect" like you describe. the land base should be 16 plains and 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, then you can use permanents that cost double white to keep your devotion up. Gather the Townsfolk is painfully slow, and Smuggler's Copter does not benefit from Honor of the Pure. cut the copters, and max the Honor of the Pure and Path to Exile.

Maybe consider Boros Elite. Maybe a Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip. Soldier of the Pantheon is a solid 1 drop.

Bonds of Faith can be a fun flavor card.

APPLE01DOJ on Ranking White Weanies...what would be ...

Soldier of the Pantheon can be quite relevant and while above is certainly correct about Dragon Hunter, Dryad Militant is also very relavent.

I prefer Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip.

Both Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip feel like they don't really do much in a superfriends deck, though Lili would be ok if you upped your creature count a bit. Nissa, Worldwaker also feels fairly weak without many forests. Thrummingbird is a great way to tick up your planeswalkers. Nevinyrral's Disk is definitely the best board wipe for a superfriends deck, since it basically destroys all nonplaneswalkers. Fogs get much better in superfriends, since you can protect them long enough to ult. Druid's Deliverance also proliferates, which can help them ult even quicker. Constant Mists is a great repeatable fog, as is Dawnstrider. Sphere of the Suns and Pentad Prism are some great pieces of ramp with Atraxa.

A very late thanks to everybody who contributed!

@ClockworkSwordfish: Thank you for the good suggestions. The level ups are slow, but if I need a late game, they're perfect. The Tithe would be great, especially in this lower-land deck, so it would be a good higher-budget addition.

@Mike94: This deck wants to be 1 cmc only, but Flickering Ward and especially Mother of Runes are great. I thought the Mother was a higher CMC, so I didn't include it.

@marcopollo: Limited Resources is a terrible, filthy card. It forces everyone to play my game, and having only 5 lands makes it hard for the enemy to get rid of it. Land Tax was in the original build for this deck, but I took it out because it was a little expensive. Zuran Orb would be nice, but... it's not 1 cmc. Faith's Shield looks like a really good card in a bad situation.

Benalish Hero looks like it could be good, but I don't know how banding works. You also said Defensive Formation works like Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip's flip, but I'm not seeing it. Launch the Fleet also seems like a great way to surprise someone in the later game.
