Light from Within Discussion

Callmegkill Light from Within just isn't quite fast enough even with the potential it provides for mid-late game. The trade off isn't worth IMO because you really don't want to get to mid-late game with a white weenie deck if you can help it. I like it in an EDH or more casual setting though, to be sure!

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, DespairFaction. I haven't really gotten in many situations where I've been hurting that badly on mana but more is always better. I certainly wouldn't get rid of Extraplanar Lens even if it's 2 color because the majority of the cards need way more white than they do red. In the games it has come out, it has been pretty dang beefy.
I'll agree that Wild Ricochet and Generator Servant have been pretty unhelpful and only really work in very specific situations. Reforge the Soul seems like a great card several turns in. As much as I love the draw from Knollspine Dragon + Sarkhan's Triumph it takes up two card slots and it kinda breaks with my theme of Angels and Humans.

Hey I play very similar style deck with Aurelia at the helm. You can check it out here: Aurelia Angels
Anyway as far as suggestions. First up you need way more mana. At least 38. This makes it so games without land tax, you can actually play magic. Next up for ramping, Thran Dynamo,Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus are where you want to be, Id cut the cluestone, and extraplanar lens since 2 color.
Instead of Konda's Banner try Light from Within
Cards that I would cut Wild Ricochet has never done much for me. Generator Servant seems real bad from card advantage stand point. A little more card draw would be good Reforge the Soul if on a budget, Knollspine Dragon + Sarkhan's Triumph is really strong.
Anyway let me know what you think.

Have you tried Light from Within in place of honor of the pure? Flavor wise it fits perfectly, but mechanically it may be worth a 1-2 of inclusion.

Consider Return to Dust instead of Revoke Existence. While aforementioned the deck's tax abilities, the ability to remove 2 artifacts (at instant speed can be 1 or 2!) or enchantments might be more worthwhile than just one. Why Revoke Existence Blightsteel Colossus when you can Return to Dust Blightsteel Colossus and Darksteel Forge(?!).

Thanks for advice! Let me comment on each of those:
- Elspeth, Sun's Champion is (at least in my opinion) too mana costly. I probably need something cheaper to use it earlier in the game
- Always Watching / Honor of the Pure - I used to have Honor in my deck, but now I prefer to throw a Knight that actually does something and now I've got even better boosts from Knight Exemplar. On the other hand Always Watching looks tempting, thanks for this suggestion :)
- Emeria, The Sky Ruin - one of this instead of Sejiri Steppe might sound like a plan. I think I've got enough Plains to utilize this, because you can count fetchlands and Flagstones of Trokair (aka. White Fetchland) as other Plains :D
- Godsend - I completely forgot about this card, looks promising. 3+3 cost looks awful but maybe after playtests I'll change my mind
About Light from Within - thing is, I used to use Elspeth, Knight-Errant but she gave me boost to only one creature, while Light gives a little less but to every knight I have. Also that little blocker sometimes wasn't enough so I buffed my royal army to use them as a shield, especially with spells like Brave the Elements
Anyway, thanks for help, I really appericiate that, hope you like this deck :)

Making sure you always have 3 creatures too attack with with Odric seems really important. Timely Reinforcements is perfect since you can go from no board to Odric attacks in one thing. Geist-Honored Monk Precinct Captain even cards like Sound The Alarm! and Servo Exhibition seem good enough although some are a bit slow. Also like Heliod, God of the Sun
Since Odric encourages go wide anthems seem great. Honor of the Pure Marshal's Anthem Glorious Anthem Spear of Heliod Dictate of Heliod and Archangel of Strife are classics. And if you want sneaky tech Light from Within works too.
Also if you're doing soldier tribal Deploy to the Front Catapult Master Daru WarchiefMartial Coup and Conqueror's Pledge are great. Bastion Protector Archetype of Courage and Intrepid Hero all happen to be soldiers. Don't forget those anything lords Metallic Mimic Adaptive Automaton Brass Herald and Coat of Arms are all nuts in tribal.
If you end up having enough tokens don't forget Anointed Procession
