Seal Away Discussion
2 days ago
I concur that Absorb 's life gain allows you to hedge against Rakdos which you would otherwise not stand a chance against G1.
I like your overall balance of spells and win cons. I don't think Seal Away is fantastic in Esper, the point of Esper over U/W is to gain better removal and your deck is all removal as is. I'd play some cheap card selection instead.
Although Opt is more standard, I think Radical Idea is actually a little underrated in a fair context. Turning a dead removal spell against a slower deck into another card, not to mention giving a little more value to Search for Azcanta Flip bins, can be more helpful in a longer game than a scry.

Thoughts on getting Seal Away in? Imo, you have enough counter spells to drop one or two and jam seal. Cheap cost gets you another head up on aggro, and the exile clause is super relevant against Phoenix / Find , and same argument for Syncopate over Sabotage (plus it hits some other nonsense ).
I'm on the fence for Disinformation Campaign but you'll have to let me know how it runs. I'd be more comfortable with just one/none, another Chemister's Insight / Search Flip and maybe even a Precognitive Perception . I could be totally wrong though, it could absolutely trash an opponents hand, so I'd love to hear feedback on its reliability.
Hype for esper control though, and from someone with very little wild cards, you're doing god's work by getting some firsthand testing in!

Probably tke out Defy Death and STW for Path to Exile , Glory-Bound is not great, I would cut it and add Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . Take out Fountain of Renewal , add Noble Hierarch . If thats a little on the WOWTHATSEXPENSIVE side, use Avacyn's Pilgrim . Seal Away is also probably worse then Path to Exile . ( Oust and Condemn are good replacements.) Aven Mindcensor could be a nice replacement for Cast Out , but not necesary.

@ Old_Man: Hmm, I was hoping that Seal Away and Kinjalli's Sunwing would hold down the fort for aggro matchups, protected by Siren Stormtamer of course. But in the sideboard I also have counters to bring in as well as Lyra Dawnbringer . Do you have any suggestions for the aggro matchup?

Did not even know about Vona, Butcher of Magan, I run a similar deck on Arena. The thing I did that isn't here is to run Divine Visitation in the hopes of popping all the tokens you get from vampire lifelinkers into angels. Even without getting that combo off, the deck is still strong. You need Call to the Feast for buffing the Pridemade.
If you go the angel token route, you will start to axe cards that don't contribute. I don't run Diamond Mare, Chupacabra. I do run Martyr of Dusk which fits your budget theme. Conclave Tribunal is better than Seal Away.

Luminous Bonds is a relatively cheap spell (moneywise and manawise) that you can maindeck to deal with powerful attackers and blockers, I think it will pay off in a deck with many small creatures where a strong blocker could become a problem.
However, it also deals with creatures that have triggers on block/attacks like Etrata, the Silencer (the RVN one), Star-Crowned Stag (albeit, I'll admit, I made 2 poor examples as those cards are seldom seen in the current metagame).
Slaughter the Strong can be useful in those same istances, but you usually want to save it for board clear against things like a kicked Verix Bladewing.
Seal Away In particular is really strong when you want to answer something during your opponent turn, as white usually lacks instant removal.
You should definitely keep Pride of Conquerors, I think, as a +2/+2 to all your creatures in a deck such as yours can easily be a game breaker.

Personally I think that History of Benalia is a must for any aggro deck, but I can definitely understand if you want to keep it budget.
As other cards you might or might not want to include in your sideboard, I suggest Adamant Will for combat tricks and Luminous Bonds or Seal Away. Ixalan's Binding could also work but of course you can't bring an answer to everything with aggro (and 4 mana can be taxing).
Hope this helps! If you are interested, I also tried to craft a monoWhite Knight aggro deck before GRN. The difference was mainly in the fact I focused on Knights to use History of Benalia third effect and to exploit the active ability of Valiant Knight.

CrimsonKing so I did have 2 Settle the Wreckage in the sideboard, but found that there was almost no matchup that I want to bring them in. My original thought was that it would be good against Izzet Pheonix, but between Seal Away, Vraska's Contempt, Profane Procession Flip and even Thaumatic Compass Flip, the only problem that I have against them are their sideboard cards (Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Firemind's Research, Ral, Izzet Viceroy and sometimes Sarkhan, Fireblood) and I usually leave Settle in the sideboard. Even against aggro decks I tend to not need Settle with all the maindeck removal/sweepers. I haven't played against a Carnage Tyrant deck yet and I will definitely try to find room for 2 Cleansing Nova in the sideboard, but right now my worst matchup that I absolutely need to improve is Jeskai.
