FWIW, here are some other examples where this has already been done:

Magnanimous on Making White great again

So white is a pretty under-powered color in both modern and pioneer and I want to build a deck focusing on white cards for either of those formats, likely modern, and would like card and/or strategy suggestions.

Here's a list of cards I'm thinking about to get started, I just really don't know how to fit them together: Porphyry Nodes , Flagstones of Trokair , Recruit the Worthy , Sky Hussar , Squadron Hawk , Battle Screech , Legion's Landing  Flip, Gift of Estates , Restore Balance , Generous Gift

Edit: I know the meta decks for white (D&T, Soul Sisters, Martyr Proc) and want to find a new W or Wx deck that uses weird mechanics and synergies specific to white in a semi-competitive way.

I feel like I should mention that I was working on a deck with Porphyry Nodes , Generous Gift , Flagstones of Trokair , Greater Gargadon , Restore Balance , and Electrodominance before I posted this.

Bitterheart Witch too tutor a specific curse with a sack mechanic such as Bone Splinters or Killing Wave or Porphyry Nodes or Spark Harvest

Changed the mainboard to have more combo cards notably cutting Arcum's Astrolabe which freed the manabase from having to run snow-basics.

The sideboard was completely reworked and now features 4x Leyline of Sanctity and allows a almost creatureless post sideboard game with Porphyry Nodes depending on the MU.

With the changes to SB and MB having 3 artifacts worth saccing for Salvage Titan became a bit farfetched witch is why he's no longer in the deck.

Emry, Lurker of the Loch is a great card but will most often be worse than Myr Retriever or Scrap Trawler in this deck.

I would love to squeeze in 4x Chromatic Sphere for another 1cmc card to bring back with Scrap Trawler triggers but it's hard to shave cards while running Locket of Yesterdays and the land count is about as low as it can get.

Love these builds. Nice job.

I like to run the 4x Spreading Seas

2-3x Runed Halo

2x Porphyry Nodes

Tron is everywhere right now. The seas is one of the best enchantments anyway because it cantrips.

no Starfield of Nyx ? since your strategy is to lock your opponent out, late game you should have enough enchantments in play to cast starfield and OTK them. Additionally it allows you to reuse Porphyry Nodes also allows you to take out your other win cons for more control.

Really cool idea to use fogs with the hunted cycle. I think Porphyry Nodes would be a nice addition as it plays well with the cycle and is more versatile (and cheaper) than Trespasser's Curse .
