Let's see.

Assemble the Legion, Mycoloth, Avenger of Zendikar for token generators.

Sterling Grove, Sphere of Safety, Ghostly Prison for protection.

Aura Mutation and Artifact Mutation for removal AND gives tokens.

Marshal's Anthem for another Anthem + recursion.

Spear of Heliod for yet another anthem AND removal!

ZekeR, SirLag, hoardofnotions thanks for the comments you guys!!!!

Solemn Simulacrum will be replacing the cartographer next time I buy cards!

Risky Move seems too... perilous

hoardofnotions special thanks to you good sir!

I like those mana rocks! I'll probably pick some up to replace Fire Diamond etc.

Phyrexian Processor took the spot of Aetherflux Reservoir. I like to gain my life back.

Bloodshot Cyclops is in my sideboard, haven't really felt the need for him yet.

Gift of Immortality was nice, but cut for more aggressive stuff. Could find it's way back though.

Marshal's Anthem was cut for more card draw. Could also find it's way back it.

Actually, I was thinking that I'd cut the colossus for the Dragon! Read my mind!

Thawing Glaciers is slightly over my $5 budget, but it's on the radar for when I eventually upgrade this deck.

I thought spinerock world be great too, but I was wrong. I mostly exiled lands/mana ramp, and most of the creatures I'd want to cast would have to come after combat, thus making most of my creatures useless(say, Spark Trooper is the only good target, doesn't work). Anyway, I think I just don't have enough good targets for it, and got seriously screwed three times in a row.

Thanks again for the comment guys!

Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass could replace 3 mana rocks

If you liked kor cartographer you'll love Solemn Simulacrum

Aetherflux Reservoir can't find a home in here???

having Bloodshot Cyclops as redundancy seems good

Gift of Immortality wasn't good?

Marshal's Anthem could be good

Everflowing Chalice is another good mana rock

I really like the Knollspine Dragon in your maybeboard. maybe over crumbling colossus?

Thawing Glaciers is great for mana hungry commander decks.

What was wrong with Spinerock Knoll? seems great for you deck

I really like this deck! I like the lifegain subtheme (pssst, you forgot Felidar Sovereign). But I'm concerned that since the deck curves out so low, you'll run out of steam before that lifegain can really take effect . So I'd personally switch those for some recursion, card draw, or more big creatures to round it out.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin would be great in this deck with so many small creatures, as would Windbrisk Heights.

Land Tax and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite are staple investments for any mono-white deck.

As for non-cats to buff up your roster, Mentor of the Meek and Sun Titan are amazing and probably give more value than some of those common cats like Guardian Lions which really aren't worth the cost (you should be generating enough tokens as chump blockers, better to use something with a bit more oomph or something that helps Brimaz).

Coat of Arms, Dictate of Heliod and Marshal's Anthem are also great ways to buff your tokens (Marshal's being the most versatile).

Since Brimaz is your linchpin, but he's so vulerable, maybe consider more cards to protect him and stop him being blocked such as Whispersilk Cloak, Gift of Immortality and Infiltration Lens.

Good luck with the deck! :D

So, I was wondering why my deck consistently underperformed, and after reviewing my deck a bit I realized I somehow ended up only running 31 lands and a lot more high cost things than I should've been playing. I also realized I was running a bit of lockdown stuff, and I think wanted to tone that down a bit in favor of more tribal support. As this was the case, I decided to fix it up a bit.

Cryptic Gateway --> Birthing Pod

Azorius Chancery --> Hallowed Fountain

Selesnya Guildgate --> Sunpetal Grove

Favorable Winds --> Thieving Magpie

Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal are awesome for this style of build with a lot of high cost creatures. You can flash in your creatures on the end step, which is a pretty big deal, and paying 4 on turn 4 and 4 again on turn 5 is much different than paying 8 on turn 8 (assuming no mana rocks). I haven'tried explanar, caged sun, or gauntlet of power because my mana base is setup different. I use Coalition Relic, Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus and the 2 cost mana rocks.

Sunscorch Regent and Taurean Mauler are awesome definitely run Sunscorch if you aren't married to angel tribal. I don't care for Malignus that much, it really needs trample to shine, and it will get smaller as the game goes a long.

I have had the same problem with Marshal's Anthem where it sits in the hand. Reya Dawnbringer is good, but I haven't been able to get Emeria Shepherd into play with the right situation, but it seems good against board wipe heavy opponents. I haven't tried out Dawnbreak Reclaimer I am interested to check it out though, but it does seem situational.

For this style of deck I personally wouldn't run Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, orHellrider. Kalemne, dies too easily and doesn't have evasion, plus gets worse as the game goes long. Instead of Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder I would Duelist's Heritage you lose the lifelink piece but its much harder to remove. My problem with Adriana, Captain of the Guard is that you have to attack everyone to get max value, and that makes it so everyone at the table hates you. I haven't played with Adriana at all, but ive use the myriad cards, and its similar.

Tajic, Blade of the Legion is solid. If you gives a blocker against the big dumb creature on the board, and when you get battalion online it gets huge. Iroas, God of Victory seems reasonable, but may not be necessary with all the protection spells you have, but maybe you cut a protection spell for Iroas, he offers decent utility.

I haven't used Crown of Doom but it actually seems pretty good, I will need to check that one out as well.

It will interfere with your curve a bit but True Conviction is good for a deck like this, if the curve can support it.

How have Slate of Ancestry Tamiyo's Journal and Blinding Angelperformed for you?

Mana cards to check out Gift of Estates I run instead of Armillary Sphere its more conditional the mana savings is pretty big. Another interesting card is Oath of Lieges, I am still undecided on it, since its awesome if you are behind on lands, but a dead card if you are head or tied on lands.

Hello DespairFaction,

How do you find Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal work for you? I recently added Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, and Crucible of Worlds route and have been pretty happy with it. I was thinking they may be a little slow actually.

Recently I have been looking at lowering the curve. How do Sunscorch Regent & Taurean Mauler work for you? I have been thinking of adding them and Malignus.

In my experimenting with Marshal's Anthem in the past it always ends up a dead card in hand for me. Does it work for you? Have you tried Emeria Shepherd, Reya Dawnbringer, or Dawnbreak Reclaimer? Emeria is incredible with fetch lands. Yet I frequently find that there isn't anything yet in my yard to recover... and a beater that utilizes Aurelia's ability might be better.

I was thinking of going more towards the lines of Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Serra Ascendant, Galepowder Mage, Iroas, God of Victory, maybe even Hellrider.

You are absolutely right about Mask of Memory! I think I will replace some of the other high cost card draw with it, Rogue's Gloves and Sword of Fire and Ice . I might even add Markov Blademaster, Mirran Crusader and Oketra the True to double the triggers.

I totally will be getting a copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal. I was just looking at him actually. I just had had a chance to check out SteveSketches recommendation of Concerted Effort which was totally awesome! Thank you SteveSketches! Indestructible Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and a flying Iroas, God of Victory were rather awesome. excepts I was still obliterated that game. So I think the similar effect from Odric, Lunarch Marshal is going to be awesome as well.

I keep on wanting to add Karmic Guide but it is such a combo piece. I want to do it justice with more combo pieces but I usually find myself avoiding combos... usually ;)

I was recently looking at Crown of Doom, do you have any experience with it? I think it might be great with the double attack phases!

Thanks for the commenting! :D

Hey I am a long time Aurelia player. I like your deck, I have a build that is fairly similar. Anyway I have a couple quick suggestions for you.

Check out Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal they will let you cheat your big creatures down much faster, and at instant speed. Odric, Lunarch Marshal will spread your abilities around really nicely. Mask of Memory is amazing for card draw, and it doesnt draw nearly as much hate as sword of fire and ice. Maybe something like Karmic Guide or Marshal's Anthemto get some creatures back. Let me know what you think.
