Could put a Gift of Immortality on the Loyal Retainers too, and equip it with a Skullclamp or a Deathrender . That gives me ideas...

Aethaleon I like the swap for Knight of the White Orchid for Loyal Retainers I don't know why it never crossed my mind. I like the card a lot but if I don't abuse it early on I always felt it was a dead draw so this should be a solid swap. I will playtest Gideon Jura for Rule of Law tonight when I hit up the shop!

Aethaleon Mind's Eye is good, and I have considered adding it. Card draw is great, but it isn't a priority addition. I have cards like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth in this deck for game enders with card draw. If I play him, and he is not answered I win on the spot. Draw + 12/12 body + annihilator is just disgusting. I have enough cycling in this deck, and have played enough games where card draw is good, but doesn't need to be a priority. Currently my biggest priority is finding ways to add Gideon Jura, and Loyal Retainers as both cards could make this deck just painful to play against. Gideon Jura would work so well with Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Loyal Retainers would be insane due to the amount of pressure the legendary creatures in this deck force. If they are removed which of course players who play against this deck enough will be prepared to remove some of the big hitters asap, but Loyal Retainers adds an option to bring back cards that were answered. I really like Oketra's Monument , and I think I will just remove Pearl Medallion for it. Prototype Portal is interesting, and I will also give it a playtest. Thank you for the suggestions.

Looking for suggestions on what to add into my Mono-white deck. I am pretty deadset on finding a way for Loyal Retainers and Gideon Jura I think. They would be great additions but finding cards to remove for them or anything really has become difficult. Looking for suggestions on what to cut for cards from the maybeboard, and always open to other suggestions! Please suggest what to remove if you can!

For my Mono-white deck mainly I am looking for suggestions on what I should cut for potentially some cards in my Maybeboard, and of course I am open to suggestions! I currently really really want to fit Loyal Retainers as it would fit well in the deck however I need some enchantment/artifact removal but finding cuts for those type of cards has become quite difficult.... Looking for any help I can get on that one. Please shoot me any suggestions/opinions/cuts/whatever!

As for my Boros deck I am currently just looking for improvement! Any suggestion/cuts are welcome!!!!

As for the budget. There is none right now, I currently have a very good friendship with 2 vendors who can basically get me whatever I need so when making suggestions please don't let a price tag matter I can find a way with my job + connections I got. Please if you make a suggestion on what to add find a card to cut for it as well. Getting suggestions is great but not much I can do when I have no clue what to cut.

RUST-O Yeah I really wanna fit Loyal Retainers and Gideon Jura into this deck both would be so good. War Priest of Thune also would be great! So hard to find cuts. Only worthy cut I can find is Linvala, the Preserver for Gideon Jura ._.

Its not on the list but if you're thinking of Loyal Retainers for recursion I think thats a good idea. Especially if you loose a valuable piece for whatever reason.

I suggest these cards in addition to that.

Defy Death is really good with angels. Yeah its 5 mana but well worth it.

Profound Journey is like a double defy death without the +1/+1 counters. But rebound is really nice.

War Priest of Thune seems really good here. Always good to have ways to get rid of a pesky o-ring on your stuff.

As far what to take out... you got me there. Everything in the deck has a purpose.

I have added some cards to my maybeboard since they have sparked my interest, and I feel some of them may be great additions to this deck. Looking for feedback on what others think. Me, and my friends think Loyal Retainers would be a great addition, and should be swapped for Pearl Medallion . Rest in Peace and Cast Out I also feel would be solid. Looking for other opinions, and feedback about my maybeboard. Wondering what others think about adding some or all these cards. Also what you would take out for some of the maybeboard cards, and why! Thank you!!
