Secure the Wastes Discussion

I agree with Sunbrosoulaire. The greatest improvement you can make to this deck is in efficiency. Rather than have a bunch of different instants/sorceries with slightly different mechanics, consolidate--figure out which one works best for your deck, and run 4 of those cards. I highly recommend adding more Anguished Unmakings to your sideboard.

Intangible Virtue might be a good card for you, given the number of token generators you have. Spectral Procession is another great token generator, and would be a good replacement for Secure the Wastes--most of the time, you will get three tokens for three mana (rather than 2), and they would have flying, giving them evasion.

I would suggest Bitterblossom but that's not budget.

Westvale Abbey  Flip is a solid land for the token deck. Def recommend it

Anointed Procession might be a bit too slow but a good card

Secure the Wastes also might be a bit too slow but worth suggesting

Not sure what would be better for Sorin but Sorin, Lord of Innistrad +1/0 and gives tokens. You can have both Sorins on the field too if you want to go that way.

Auriok Champion could be great in the deck. Especially in the side vs burn.

The lands definitely jump out at me as being not ideal. I'd Vivid Crag, Vivid Grove, and Vivid Meadow are almost always better than evolving wilds and terramorphic expanse. Rith's Grove is bad. I'd try out Krosan Verge. That's a must-play for me in white-green.

Seed Spark impresses me less than Return to Dust or Sylvan Reclamation, even considering that it's more synergistic with your deck.

I'd probably run Secure the Wastes over White Sun's Zenith. I've never been impressed with Dictate of Heliod. True Conviction also seems like a card that's not quite as good as it was when we started playing. It's also not as good with 1/1's; you need a pump for it not to be +1/+1.

Emeria Angel seems pretty low-impact, as does Requiem Angel. Farhaven Elf isn't the best option either. I think you really only want to run it if you're gonna be blinking it.

Random stuff that could be worth trying: Champion of Lambholt, Pathbreaker Ibex, Hornet Queen

Definitely add Cryptolith Rite and Rishkar's Expertise

This commander looks great.

Have you tested with Sanguine Bond to complement Exquisite Blood?

I also wonder about more token producers to work with your Anointed Procession. Cards like Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Carrion, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Liliana, the Last Hope, Plague of Vermin, Secure the Wastes, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, might help here.

Have fun playing!

If your playgroup is up for combos, Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond is often played in these colors. Aetherflux Reservoir is often played in life-gain decks.

Zulaport Cutthroat complements Blood Artist.

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos get better with more sac outlets. Have you ever tested with Disciple of Bolas or Viscera Seer?

Greed is a good source of card draw in a life-gain deck.

A lot of your creatures are too big for Sun Titan; maybe something like a Serra Ascendant instead for more life-gain?

You may also want more token generators to make Anointed Procession really pay off in a big way. Cards like Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Carrion, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Liliana, the Last Hope, Plague of Vermin, Secure the Wastes, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, might help here.

Happy brewing!

22 out of the 60 cards are instants or sorcery, and with all the cantrips and fetch lands I run I don't have too much trouble flipping Delver. They are fragile though they're easy to pick off with Lightning Bolt but they're quick and give the deck a bit of an aggro edge that most Control doesn't have so I'm going to keep them for now.

I swapped out two basic lands for Field of Ruin. I also ordered a full playset of Spreading Seas, I just don't know where to fit them in to either the Mainboard or Sideboard but I want to because this deck got wrecked by Tron.

I've got Elspeth, Sun's Champion az a wincon already and I'll look into Secure the Wastes. Thanks for the feedback! :)

Delver seems a bit too fragile (and frankly a bit hard to flip) for this deck. I'd consider something like Secure the Wastes or Elspeth, Sun's Champion as a win condition. They're relatively cheap money-wise, and they give you those big power finishers control decks like. I'd also strongly suggest you run Field of Ruin and Spreading Seas - they're your only hope against decks like Tron.
