So I notice you're making stax in WU. Maybe Hokori, Dust Drinker , Magus of the Moat and Magus of the Tabernacle ? Also, since you're running Azorius, why not piss them off even more by adding in about 8 or so counter spells, like Render Silent , Cryptic Command (although this deck might be a bit mana starved for it) and other classics?

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.

Really cool deck! Have you considered Sunder to slow your opponents down even more?
I see you don't run many creatures, so you could go for creature lock-down with cards like Magus of the Tabernacle, Pendrell Mists (passive boardwipe with Winter Orb) ,Dream Tides, Overburden, World Queller, Spelltithe Enforcer, Ward of Bones, Portcullis and Crystal Shard I think are worth considering.
I play a blue/white superfriends deck that prevents anyone from playing creatures so I feel like some of my cards may compliment your deck xD http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/grand-arbiter-and-friends/

In the Time Spiral block, three cycles of magi were printed: one cycle inspired by iconic lands (i.e., Magus of the Tabernacle), one cycle inspired by famous enchantments (i.e., Magus of the Moat), and one cycle inspired by famous artifacts (i.e., Magus of the Disk).
That leaves only a green magus left, so I now wish to speculate on what that magus shall be, and, more specifically, after what green instant or sorcery it shall be modeled.
As with the first four, such a magus will likely be modeled after a card that is on the reserved list or otherwise has not been reprinted in a long time, and also one that is both iconic and powerful; therefore, both Desert Twister and Tooth and Nail, for example, are not likely candidates.
What does everyone else say about this? What green instant or sorcery shall be used as the model for the final magus of this cycle? I eagerly await your responses.

I think you did a pretty good job for a first deck.
You seem to be running a combination of really good cards and out of place shitty cards. Unless there is some combo or synergy you have with them that I'm missing I think the following cards are garbage and should be cut:
If your opponents are going off way faster than you then you need to think about how to upset their early game with hate pieces. In combo heavy metas cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare and Glowrider slow your opponents down enough to let you gain control of the situation Kambal, Consul of Allocation also gains you life to stick around as they cast themselves to death. for creature heavy metas cards like Archfiend of Depravity, Ophiomancer, forced sac like Butcher of Malakir Dictate of Erebos and Magus of the Tabernacle can really fuck over a lot of decks. For pure control, stax is usually the best option in competitive EDH since relying on counterspells and spot removal to keep 3 other players in check isn't feasible. I also always recommend some graveyard hate in any deck Nihil Spellbomb Relic of Progenitus Grafdigger's Cage Rest in Peace Tormod's Crypt Crypt Incursion Silent Gravestone are all good and cheap to play. I also personally put Necropotence in every black deck, It's so good it honestly should be banned. other good general control cards are Force of Will Pact of Negation Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command.
I'm not really clear on the win con. Something like a Blightsteel Colossus, any of the preators, or a x mana life drain like Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, or Torment of Hailfire could kill of opponents once you've stabilized the game.

I do not know much about CEDH, I play primarily normal commander. I would agree, some of these magi are good alternatives to the OG card. Particularly:
Magus of the Tabernacle is 4 mana and can only be played in white decks, and is vulnerable to its own effect, compared to the colorless land which can come down turn 1. The only downside of the actual Tabernacle is the 4 digit price tag. Magus of the Mind is a good replacement or redundant copy to Mind's Desire but it has summoning sickness, so it cannot fire right away.
I agree the OG cards are too expensive. I for one do not like that Yawgmoth's Will is nearly triple digits. But they are also very specific, tailored to exactly one deck, so 99% of decks do not need these OG cards.
No data for this card yet.
