Sorry About the Delay.

So far I have a few suggestions:

I hope that this wasn't too overwhelming. If you need any more help just let me know!

Thank you everyone for the comments. I appreciate all the help with this. I should say that mass and continual land destruction is frowned upon. I went "lighter" on the reanimation with a high probabilitly some thing will be "exiled" rather than just destroyed. That is the direction things seem to be moving.

@hkhssweiss - thanks for the input. I do use a Cataclysm + Faith's Reward Combo. This helps remove all the plainswalkers from the Atraxa deck.

@xaarvaxus - There is some light reanimation with the Sun Titan and Sword of Light and Shadow .

I do like the idea of Mistveil Plains and will be adding that in V2.

I feel the weakest cards in the deck are Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Linvala, Keeper of Silence .

I have to say Extraplanar Lens felt underwhelming as well. But, I know once Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is out I want all the white I can get. IDK maybe Caged Sun would be better here.

I do have a Teferi's Protection and I need to find a spot for it. I also feel a spot should be Tocatli Honor Guard as well.

So the next version 2.1 will be

Out: Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and 3 Plains .

In: Teferi's Protection , Tocatli Honor Guard , Mistveil Plains , Arid Mesa , and Marsh Flats

Thank you all for the tips and ideas!

Combo decks got you down? Hmm, well I'm not sure what kind of combos are running around in your play group, but perhaps Stranglehold can put a dapper on their plans. This card is just so back breaking against a lot of the more unfair decks. It even shuts down most ramp spells.

Alternatively Blind Obedience is great against stuff like Elves and Artifacts that just want to keep playing cheap mana sources and tapping them right away.

Then there is Linvala, Keeper of Silence who can just lock out some decks.

You of course could easily make room for a Bojuka Bog to help deal with graveyard strategies.

I would highly suggest having more instant speed interaction, at the very least include a Vedalken Orrery so everything becomes instant speed. Meren decks are slow engines that build up but often get taken advantage of by faster decks or those that can prevent graveyard play. Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, and Humility become major problems when you don't have a noncreature answer to them. as well as the mass multitude of graveyard hate like Leyline of the Void, Rest in Peace, Nihil Spellbomb... You get the point. If these cards are not prevalent in your meta you should be fine, but I still would advocate more instant speed interaction.

Assassin's Trophy, Beast Within, Crop Rotation (to fetch Bojuka Bog at instant speed to deny opponents graveyard plays), Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Putrefy, etc. These will make your deck more resilient to hate cards, faster, and more flexible over all.

So here is what I recommend taking out, Caustic Tar, Shadowborn Apostle, Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker, Pyretic Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Dark Ritual, Thoughtseize, Exquisite Blood, Angel of Glory's Rise

The reason we don't want these is because you don't have removal in your deck and we have no way of protecting Kaalia of the Vast Removing these gives us 17 open slots for removal, protection, and some better creatures

Now some recommendations, Kokusho, the Evening Star He is a really good blocker since you have no ways to sac him blocking is going to be your best bet to kill him, Lathliss, Dragon Queen I don't need to explain this one, Terminate Very good instant speed removal, Dreadbore More removal (also hits planeswalkers so that's a bonus, Iroas, God of Victory Sure you cant cheat him out but who cares look at that ability! Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Cause hes aids, Lightning Greaves We have to protect Bae otherwise she will be shot down on sight Vindicate Great removal, Swiftfoot Boots More protecting of Bae, Strionic Resonator So when Bae attacks we hit her ability with this and get double the triggers so now we put to bois into play Merciless Eviction You need a board wipe, Earthquake A board wipe that only hits your opponents stuff YES PLEASE! Liliana's Contract For the memes, Linvala, Keeper of Silence shes op, Oblivion Ring More removal. Swords to Plowshares Honestly the best white removal in commander, Anguished Unmaking Exile op op.

Mono white doesn't have many ways to draw cards. It's pretty standard for mono white to run more lands to compensate to ensure they can hit their big spells. I'd go with 36 or 37 lands. Weathered Wayfarer is great. Ancient Tomb is a must. Stuff like Mind Stone, Everflowing Chalice, etc. help. You want rocks that come in untapped and tap for mana with an upside at 2 CMC. If you're going to proxy, go with Mana Crypt as well. Scroll Rack is great, especially with Land Tax. Unexpectedly Absent is great.

Try to go up to 20 creatures. Cut your artifacts when necessary. Serra Ascendant, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Ethersworn Canonist, Magus of the Tabernacle, Hushwing Gryff, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Grasp of Fate, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Aura of Silence, Phyrexian Revoker, Tocatli Honor Guard, Alms Collector, Spelltithe Enforcer, Lodestone Golem, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, etc. You've got options.

Hey, consider Mistveil Plains and Tithe? Mistveil is a way to put a spell back into your library and then cast it again with Sunforger, you can loop the same spell. Tithe can tutor for Mistveil and best of all be cast with Sunforger.

Angels to consider adding:

Other cards to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Light of the Legion
  • Serra's Guardian
  • Subjugator Angel
  • Voice of All
  • Bruna, the Fading Light
  • Gisela, the Broken Blade
  • Whispersilk Cloak
  • Sword of the Animist
  • Fervor
  • Always Watching
  • 1x Plains

I would cut Bruna and Gisela. There's better Angels for their mana costs. The fun factor of playing them together is to meld, but it's not consistent enough without having many ways to tutor for Angels that you'll have both on the battlefield at the same time.

Good luck with your deck
