Oketra's Monument Discussion

As a fellow Ephara fan the lack of Whitemane Lion is interesting. It is truly a workhorse in my Ephara build and when mixed with its partner in crime, Oketra's Monument you get to draw a card each turn with Ephara at the cost of 1 white mana and are left with a 1/1 vigilance for your trouble. God-Eternal Oketra also works wonders as making a 4/4 vigilance for every creature drop is great. Just suggestions though.

Some spells I think can just make the deck better are the following.
Finale of Glory You'll never use this for the X=10 part, but doing lets say X=4 will put 4 2/2s on the board which is 8 power total coming out of no where and they'll be ready to swing next turn.
Unbreakable Formation is amazing since it can protect you from a board wipe or be used as an offensive spell on your turn since it'll give your entire team a permanent +1/+1 bonus and leave them up to block after the swing. Make a Stand is similar, but much less effective. Faith's Reward and Eerie Interlude are great since they can dodge the scarier board wipes like Cyclonic Rift and Toxic Deluge
Decree of Justice is good for it's cycling ability. You'll draw a card for 3 mana and you can drain the rest of your mana into it to make that many soldier tokens.
Oketra's Monument is great since while not making soldiers it will give you cost reduction on your creatures and lets you have plenty of expendable bodies.
Marshal's Anthem is a card I use that is very underestimated. In the late game it will help you get some important creatures out of your graveyard and is a great anthem effect to boost your team.
Light from Within will give a good boost to all your non token creatures.

Oketra's Monument would be great for cost reduction as well as getting some extra bodies out when you cast creatures.
Burnished Hart is a great creature to have since if he can survive a rotation he can ramp you by 2.
Angel of Sanctions is one I've been meaning to test out since he doubles as removal.
Sword of the Animist is a really good source of ramp.
Eerie Interlude would be great to help you dodge the board wipes that Avacyn won't stop.

I really like Oketra's Monument in here. I would probably drop Fiery Emancipation (this may move too far away from your commander's activated ability being a primary strategy) and go with an anthem strategy overall as you acquire cards to slot in. Glorious Anthem, Gaea's Anthem, Dictate of Heliod, and, Beastmaster Ascension would all be solid in here. Other targets for removal for me would be Commander's Insignia and True Conviction. True Conviction can be great, but it seems a bit win more as opposed to just going wide and pumping through anthems. Beyond those, if you do lean into the anthem strategy, consider Mirari's Wake, Force of Virtue (can be a fun free play), Collective Blessing, and Spear of Heliod. You might even consider Intangible Virtue.
Have you considered Strionic Resonator to copy your commander's triggers?
Card draw seems light. Just some various options: Runic Armasaur, Mind's Eye, The Immortal Sun (anthem as well), Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious, and, if you want to play in further on tokens, Ulvenwald Mysteries.
I agree on getting the token doublers in here and I also agree they are pricey :). A more budget option would be Second Harvest.
For win-cons, if you decide to switch to a Timmy approach, Craterhoof Behemoth is an obvious choice, and Thunderfoot Baloth would also fit nicely. With all your anthems (assuming you go that route), Humility would certainly be fun. Doesn't see much play, but a janky win con requiring setup is pairing Touch of the Eternal with enchantment destruction on the last end step before your turn, plus you usually want some protection in there. Like I said, a lot of setup :).

Hello again. When it comes to your “toolbox” idea, I think you’ve probably got everything covered, just as long as you keep extra copies of these cards in the sideboard for once you know you’ll need specific ones. About the only card I think might be worth considering for this is Selesnya Charm, which to be honest I can’t believe that I’d forgotten about. In terms of what it counters, it gives you the ability to deal with huge creatures and even get around indestructible, which makes it particularly good against big Eldrazi, Dinosaurs or Dragons. But where this really shines is in its flexibility, since it can also be an instant speed blocker if needed, or a pump spell that gets a creature through to end a game. For two mana I don’t think you can get much better. I might also consider Return to Nature over Sundering Growth, since it also has the potential for very effective graveyard hate, particularly against decks using the Theros titans, or any big reanimation targets. With Adorned Pouncer being the only source of a good populate target (a 1/1 is never really a good hit), the value of Growth seems inconsistent, and most of the time it will be a more limited version of Return.
Unfortunately, G/W doesn’t have access to all that many tutors, especially not in pioneer, and even then the green ones only really find creatures, while white finds enchantments. Idyllic Tutor can help grab Anointed Procession, but that’s probably not enough hits. The green tutors I could find were more expensive, both in terms of mana and money, but are both very strong since they also get the creature onto the battlefield. Chord of Calling can be good since you can ramp it out with your wide board, as well as use it to tutor up a win con on your opponents end step, effectively giving it haste. Finale of Devastation is the other alternative, but I feel it’s strictly worse since you’ll never cast it for 12 mana to get the extra effect. However, I wouldn’t really recommend running any of these, they just seem too inefficient to me.
As you have pointed out regarding Huatli, Radiant Champion, unfortunately most card draw in these colours is reliant on you playing out creatures, since most of the time these colours produce creature based strategies. It is important to remember though that tokens would also trigger her ability, so a Leonin Warleader could attack and draw you two cards if you have the emblem, or even more if you have Anointed Procession. I find that tokens are he best way to exploit these effects for maximum value, and since your deck makes so many I think it would be a good effect to have access to.
I would not call Initiate's Companion a ramp card, especially not in this deck. If I used the card, I would mainly do so to untap my Pride Sovereign in order to get around the exert, rather than untapping a land, especially since it ramps you into two spells rather than into a single bigger threat. Even then, the effect is very disruptable, since it needs to hit the opponent first to activate the ability and has no eveasion built into it. As a 3/1, it is also very easy to trade into, so I think it will very rarely give you good value. In actuality, you do already have a form of ramp in the deck form Oketra's Monument, and I don’t think you anything more than that.
Lurrus of the Dream-Den is another very good card, provided that you have enough things that you can bring back. Since both Fleecemane Lion and Ajani's Pridemate, and even Adorned Pouncer can all be big threats, being able to just bring them back is really powerful, but it can also feel pretty bad if your graveyard is just filled with bigger creatures.
On a final note regarding how companion works, while your companion card starts the game in a zone where your opponent can’t touch it, you do still have to cast it and have it on board to gain the effects, and in fact you also have to pay three to move it from it’s starting zone to your hand. I wasn’t sure whether I’d fully explained how the mechanic worked, so I just thought I’d clarify.

I take no offense, I know you're trying to help me! <3
What about Revitalize? Lifegain and drawing a card for only two mana! I got rid of Fountain of Renewal and replaced it with Oketra's Monument. I just wanted it because it's a guaranteed +1/+1 each turn for my Ajani's Pridemate, and to replace the lifepoints lost to Temple Garden. Return of the Wildspeaker would be an amazing draw card, but the problem with it is that its mana cost is so high. I'd have to wait until my 5th turn, which on that turn I should be eternalizing Adorned Pouncer or casting Regal Caracal if I casted Anointed Procession on my fourth turn! I'm thinking about putting in Sylvan Caryatid as a ramp card, but then again, it's a creature, and I don't want too many creatures. At least Sylvan Caryatid is a hexproof card, so people won't classically 'bolt the bird'. With Sundering Growth populate would be incredibly useful with Adorned Pouncer's eternalize ability, or even multiple Anointed Procession and send a few 1/1 lifelink cats onto the battlefield, and Sundering Growth doesn't rely upon the player to take damage. I imagine that in opposing an aggro or creature-heavy deck I'll have a very hard time attacking the player himself, and if I have big cards, they might be deathtouched or destroyed or hated to death or countered. This is why I want a G/W Aqueous Form type of card, as when I get big creatures they can smack the player instead of the creatures. Do you know of any like that? Prowling Serpopard will be very useful against control decks, but I'm afraid to put it into my deck, as it costs 3 mana, and isn't that great. I guess i'm trying to make a cats tribal toolbox deck?!

ClockworkSwordfish Thank you for the suggestions! I've been upgrading this deck and never took out the Survivors' Encampment from a previous incarnation. I'll probably take out the Reliquary Tower and Survivors' Encampment and replace them with Emeria, The Sky Ruin. I like your idea of replacing a few of the more useless angels with Wall of Omens and getting some acceleration with Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone, and Oketra's Monument. I was also considering adding some copies of Divine Visitation to combo with Bishop of Wings and either Resplendent Angel or Angelic Accord. Your suggestions really helped out, Thanks again!
