Hexaflexagon on Red white aggro

Hey man! Nice idea. A suggestion for you and some cards to consider.

  • I would try and make this more focused and have more 3 and 4 copies of cards, and less 1 and 2 copies. What is your main goal? How does your deck win? Right now, it's a bit all over the place. If you want to, I could remake this deck into a deck that can stand its own at FNM, taking into account things such as sideboard and budget restrictions. If you don't want me to do that, I completely understand. Having someone else make a deck for you is kind of boring, and takes the fun out of deckbuilding.

Cards you might want to consider:

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

Got something similar in my mind, but why Rustwing Falcon,Healer's Hawk could make a better job.

Hey Wayneh73! Thanks for the comment.

I've been debating between Rustwing Falcon, Healer's Hawk and Hunted Witness for the 1-drop slot. I'm not high on Hunted Witness, and I think it's a metagame call for the birbs. If aggro is very prevalent or 2 power creatures aren't showing up, I would completely agree with Healer's Hawk. Even still, Mentoring Rustwing Falcon into a 2/3 flyer turns it into a solid attacker and defender, what with the Thorn Lieutenants, Ravenous Chupacabras and History of Benalia knights running around.

I will have to try Healer's Hawk out, though. Thanks!

You could swap the Rustwing Falcon with Healer's Hawk

It is cheap but I would drop some of the non-creature spells in favor of cheap creatures. Core 2019 has Rustwing Falcon and Novice Knight. Or any of the many white 2/1 creatures from various sets.

Moar Benalish Marshal

Bloodtallow Candle seems super slow because of the cost. Have you ever used it in a game?

You have 4 and 5 drop cards so you may want 25 or 26 land. Is this casual or standard? If casual, maybe consider Secluded Steppe to prevent mana screw and mana flood?

WurmMaster777, thank you for your suggestions!

Suntail Hawk is a definite no. I am already running Rustwing Falcon, which is an almost strictly better card (although the difference is rather small in this deck), and it's a card that I'm actually considering cutting from the deck.

Ethereal Armor is more interesting. I'm running enough enchantments to make it decently likely to grant a boost of more than +1, although I suspect it will often do +2/+2 at most. That said, I'm not entirely sure what to cut for it (if I even do), and how many copies to run.

I would cut down on the lands, as 26 seems a little excessive in monowhite. Invoke the Divine is good enchantment/artifact removal. Rustwing Falcon is a really good flyer and early game attacker. Militia Bugler is a great addition in any monowhite deck, as it gets you the creatures you need. Hieromancer's Cage is also good removal to have around, although I really don't know how much removal you want.

To improve suggestion quality, what's your meta like? Your meta (in case you don't know, if you do know I apologize) is the decks that you are likely to play locally in your environment.

Either way, I think this is a really nice first deck Firesong! Good luck improving the deck, and if you need any further help/suggestions feel free to ask me.
