dingusdingo on Counterpoint: White doesn't need ramp …

I totally agree. While it would certainly make mono white commanders far more viable, white already has enough going for it to make it a sought after color for wedges or dual colored commanders.

White sees lots of play in stax decks, as it packs the most hatebears of any color. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Leonin Arbiter Aven Mindcensor Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite Grand Abolisher Hokori, Dust Drinker Ethersworn Canonist Kataki, War's Wage are all cards that see competitive play. You have far more fringe cases like Vryn Wingmare Alms Collector Thalia, Heretic Cathar Loxodon Gatekeeper and others which are seen on the fringe. The hatebears become a secondary wincon for competitive by pressuring life totals while also stopping the game.

White also gets a BUNCH of incredible supporting effects for stax builds. Armageddon and the expensive Ravages of War close games. Smothering Tithe plays great under stax. There are also numerous enchantments are shut off combos or lines of play, such as Rest in Peace Stony Silence Leyline of Sanctity Suppression Field and all kinds of less effective variants.

White also gives some of the most efficient 1-for-1 removal. While you will fall behind with 1-for-1's in a 4 player pod, its still important to pack StP and Path. White also gets sweepers for EVERY SINGLE PERMANENT TYPE. You read that correctly kids. You can do A-lot-for-1 trades with cards like Wrath of God Austere Command Cleanfall Paraselene and others.

White also gets one of the best pieces of combo protection available, Silence . White has a few tutors that are playable, Enlightened Tutor Steelshaper's Gift Open the Armory Academy Rector Stoneforge Mystic . You get card advantage via effects like Land Tax Tithe Weathered Wayfarer and more.

True, white doesn't have very many cards with the word "Draw" explicitly on it. You're able to accrue advantage, but its mostly incremental. What white lacks in raw draw you make up for with value. The sweepers are the best example of this imo. The opponent may have drawn more cards than you, but trading 1 card for 10 creatures on the board is effectively 9 card advantage.

I personally enjoy most duals or wedges that include White + Black or White + Blue. I find it to be similar to Green, in that I don't feel bad with having it as a secondary or tertiary color, and that it solves a lot of problems and gives me access to cards I want to run.

What if somebody uses Paraselene or something? You'll be in trouble.

Looks like a fun deck!

I think you'll want more card draw. I'd recommend Enchantress's Presence and Argothian Enchantress and Mesa Enchantress and Verduran Enchantress .

Courser of Kruphix is a great enchantment that can also help you get some lands.

Starfield Mystic can give you some value if someone plays Paraselene or a similar effect.

Lastly, Standstill and Telepathy are some fun little pet cards of mine that could be fun in this deck.

Hope this helps!

Looks like a fun deck!

If you're worried about board wipes, you might want to run cards like Faith's Reward and Second Sunrise and Unbreakable Formation .

If you have an enchantment-heavy meta, try adding Paraselene and Back to Nature and Fracturing Gust and Patrician's Scorn .

Hope this helps!

If you’re having a problem with pillowfort decks then you can try out Austere Command and Cleansing Nova . A good budget option is Cleanfall , Leave No Trace , Paraselene , and Nova Cleric . If Ashnod's Altar is only in here to provide mana to attack through pillowfort than you’d be better off with a board wipe.

Ha! Back to Nature was actually in the first iteration of this deck with Heroic Intervention, but I replaced it with Paraselene and then just said screw it and replaced Paraselene and Heroic intervention with Primeval Light lol.

Thanks for the comment and upvote!
