Yuri200X on Budget White Tokens

The greatest advantage of Mono White Tokens is that it can be all-out aggro.

Since you won't be using the Black cards from BW Tokens, you could take advantage of the biggest (and kinda only) advantage in going Mono-White: go aggro.

I recommend you replace creatures (most of them) for token generators such as: Midnight Haunting, Raise the Alarm and Spectral Procession.

And you can also be bold and use Leyline of the Meek and Honor of the Pure.

You could also use Windbrisk Heights to have some kind of card advantage. Also, Hero of Bladehold would go in nicely.

There are also cards such as Shrine of Loyal Legions and Timely Reinforcements that can be used.

There's also the possibility for Soul Warden and get some life out of it too.

And you might like Secure the Wastes, Promise of Bunrei, Martial Coup and Vessel of Ephemera.


Try to leave cards like Oblivion Ring, Stasis Snare or such to the sideboard since it might be a better plan to go all-out aggro.

For more sideboard, there is Disenchant, Blessed Alliance, Path to Exile and Condemn, as well as Pithing Needle/Phyrexian Revoker and Relic of Progenitus.

Ah, sorry. Thought it was since i'm running white. Will change to Secure the Wastes if that is the case. Thanks!

Maybe cut a couple Valorous Stance? You have other removal/ protection. The value from Outburst is hard to pass up, it's arguably better than Secure the Wastes

I don't think Jeskai Draw-Go is too poor of a choice. I'd say it's just as good as other control decks you could be playing, and has meaningful advantages over those other decks. If you build a Secure the Wastes version or one featuring Keranos, God of Storms, you get an extraordinary amount of inevitability that can be quite valuable. Of course, you aren't lacking for interaction with aggressive strategies, either.

Alex here, here's my advice

What should go:

Secure the Wastes

-Doesn't really fit the objective of the deck or get made better by other cards in the deck.

Aerial Responder/Lightning Angel

-You probably were already getting around to cutting this. It's good for a 60 card format, but not so much for EDH.

Wheel of Fate

-I feel like this might screw you over since you don't have a ton of recursion and you could be drawing your opponents into good cards. You're in blue, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding a replacement. I'd suggest Fact or Fiction and/or Steam Augury and if you'd like to spend a bit more, Rhystic Study is amazing (for you).

Isolation Zone

-Grasp of Fate is strictly better.

Mechanized Production

-A landwipe, mana rock, or control piece would do you much better.


Maybe-Cuts

Solemn Simulacrum

-Might be better to replace with a rock, since that land will probably get destroyed.

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius

-A bit hard to cast in three colors, perhaps replace with a draw engine.

Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper

-I see that you figured he can get the most out of your lands before they get wiped, but once your lands are destroyed, he'll be a dead card for the most part.

Treasure Keeper

-Not sure how useful this one can be, I think a more controlly creature would help you more. Replace with Windborn Muse maybe?


For Your Consideration:

Leonin Abunas/Padeem, Consul of Innovation

Ravages of War

Catastrophe

War's Toll

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs

Propaganda

Talisman of Progress

Sky Diamond

Marble Diamond

Mind Stone

Coldsteel Heart

Jeskai Banner

Gilded Lotus (Kinda pricey)

Tinker

Hoarding Dragon

Enlightened Tutor (Kinda pricey)

Mystical Tutor

Charmbreaker Devils

Sphinx of the Final Word

Arcane Denial

Dispel

Turn Aside


Also get around to upgrading your mana base. I'm sure you know how to do so but either way, the vivid, pain, and scry lands are great on a budget and there should be more like them. Keep it up bro

TheDeckMaker2300 on Alternate Win Conditions :)

hey i definately like this deck i was considering a alternate win deck.

you might thank me or not for this but im going to give you lots of potential cards for this deck that are budget/semi-budget (note some of my ideas will not work in this deck ofcoarse)(they will be catergorized by each win con)

almost all of them

  • Diabolic Tutor (just another plane old find anything you want card)
  • Last Chance or/and Final Fortune you just cast it when you have a win con from you list ready then at the extra turn upkeep you win (examples: epic struggle = 20 creatures, test of endurance with 50+ life.) and not to mention you have Platinum Angel in the deck if its out it will counters the you lose part of both of them when the turn ends. see for yourself http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/magic-fundamentals/magic-rulings/magic-rulings-archives/259040-final-fortune-platinum-angel
  • now lets begin

Azor's Elocutors/Darksteel reactor

Barren Glory

Biovisionary

  • Infinite Reflection
  • http://magiccards.info/query?q=ct%3Aenter+ct%3Athe+ct%3Abattlefield+ct%3Aas+ct%3Aa+ct%3Acopy&v=card&s=cname (the ones that can turn into creatures)

Test of Endurance/Felidar Sovereign/Celestial Convergence

Epic Struggle

Maze's End

Helix Pinnacle

Mechanized production/hellkite tyrant

Mortal kombat:pretty much any one creature from this list

Laboratory Maniac

Mayael's Aria

Near-Death Experience1.

hope this is to a help to you.

lagotripha on Hold dem gates! (Budget control with a twist)

Have you tested running some more Assault Formation alongside Natural Affinity for an unexpected win with Tower Defense or Hold the Gates? I feel like having a post-board state where the creatures appear from nowhere- Cobra Trap or Secure the Wastes style to deal with the inevitble Wrath of God coming in from sideboard could be good. It could also help free up those lower creature slots for some Languish and Yahenni's Expertise type area removal to deal with faster aggro. Might try putting it together to see what it would look like. Anyways, loving the deck idea.

What's the rationale for Indrik Umbra?

I would recommend finding a slot for Secure the Wastes. Hero of Bladehold also seems like a notable omission.
