Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

As Pentarch Ward enters the battlefield, choose a color.

When Pentarch Ward enters the battlefield, draw a card.

Enchanted creature has protection from the chosen color. This effect doesn't remove Pentarch Ward.

Icbrgr on Mono White Aura Heroic

I dig it. something to consider is Brave the Elements because it can save/provide evasion to multiple creatures... otherwise i think the biggest issue in mono-white is access to draw/cantrips.... perhaps Pentarch Ward can fit the them of auras as well as replace itself....maybe Bandage could help win some races by cantripping and triggering heroic?

Lanzo493 on WU Budget Blinky-boi (WIP)

I’ve also played Brago and there are 2 very good budget things you can do with this deck. 1, ramp. 2, draw. Brago basically doubles your mana from mana rocks, so if you have a lot of mana and a lot of draw, that is powerful. That’s why Rhystic Study and Smothering Tithe cost so much.

Let’s start with ramp. He can blink mana rocks so your mana rocks need to enter untapped. No Fieldmist Borderpost effects. Instead, you have Mana Geode , Darksteel Ingot , Prismatic Lens , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith , Peregrine Drake (he’s fun), and anything else you have. Sol Ring and what not.

Now draw. Mystic Remora is definitely worth the price. It’ll draw you a ton of cards and Brago will keep the upkeep cost to . Other good draw is Trial of Knowledge , Sea Gate Oracle , Unquestioned Authority , Traveler's Cloak , Pentarch Ward , Curator's Ward (you draw cards and can trenchant your commander!) Heliod's Pilgrim , and more. There are always permanents that help you draw.

Shoutout to Cloudform and Lightform for cheating everything into play. Should you want to keep your manifested a creature a 2/2 instead of blinking it (for example, it’s an instant) you only need to blink the ~~~~form enchantment. Also, Reality Acid and Nevermaker do great.

Also, planeswalkers. Add them if you’ve got them. Like Narset, Parter of Veils . She’s good.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves . You’ll need to protect your commander. Most people target Brago.

Those are my suggestions anyway. Now if you’re to take any cards out, I’d start with Serra's Blessing . Your commander can blink itself and all your creatures so they have pseudo-vigilance. I’d also remove instants and sorcerers from your deck that can be easily replaced with a blinkable permanent with the same effect ( Unsummon —> Nevermaker ).

for aggro I think Invisible Stalker could be a good choice of creature to enchant

Remand is really good to keep the tempo and protect against big stuff

Stubborn Denial is incredible in this deck

Steel of the Godhead is pretty good for 2$ and is a good budget upgrade (replace if you have 4 Daybreak Coronet , Ethereal Armor )

Geist of Saint Traft is a monster but cost 3 mana

Unstable Mutation if you want to be REALLY fast take this card

Gryff's Boon make the late game more fair

Path to Exile play 4 it's so freaking good

Hyena Umbra it's cheap and can protect Kor Spiritdancer

for sideboard

Stony Silence against tron afinity hardened scaled and artifact deck

Leyline of Sanctity against burn,storm,jund and black deck with discard

Rest in Peace against dredge, control, jund, storm and graveyard deck

card to cut

Bruna, Light of Alabaster incredibly slow card

Banishing Light is 3 cmc which is a lot in a agro deck (we dont want to trade 1 for 1)

Gift of Immortality is slow and pretty much useless because it doesnt bring back the counter or the aura

Pentarch Ward , Emerge Unscathed , Dive Down doesnt serve much because we like enchanting creature with hexproof

Grand Abolisher should be in the sideboard for control matchup

Open the Armory I love this card but it's sadly too slow for modern

This is a really interesting deck! Here are some ideas I have that I think would make the deck run better:

Hope this is helpful!

Flooremoji on Battlewise Hoplite Voltron PEDH

My COM died, but the way it was going, you were percived as the biggest thret and targeted early, you got screwed at 2 mana for the longest time (I think that was a fluke) then finally got the mana for Pentarch Ward to cancel out the Pacifism effects. Your creature was later destroyed by a Stormscape Battlemage , it looked like the game was going to go in Sludge Strider s favor after Stormscape Battlemage failed to get any creatures. I fail to remember what other deck there was.

Dete on Underworld Coinsmith Pauper Commander

you could use Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Cage of Hands, Shackles and Mourning for repeatedly trigger Underworld Coinsmith.

Ashes to Ashes, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Angelic Purge, Afterlife, Snuff Out, Unmake, Pentarch Ward, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Blessing of Leeches are all really good and serve you as card draw/ protection or control.

maybe think on adding something like Pestilence or Shrivel/Nausea for boardwipes like effects.

Disciple_of_Doran on Paint It Black

Painter's Servant changes all cards not in play and all permanents, so effectively everything. Only way around it would be things that give protection without targeting, like Brave the Elements or Akroma's Memorial. Some cards specifically give protection without removing themselves as well, like Spectra Ward or Pentarch Ward
