It depends on your group. If they all tend to run easy combos, then yours should be fine. If not, perhaps run fewer tutors and include other win conditions. I've won with blinking Deepglow Skate with a Sorin, Grim Nemesis on the board.

Hi DarkStarStorm, Thank you for your kind reply.

I agree with most of your input. Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Vivien Reid can be easily replaced by other PW, but Ob Nixilis Reignited's -3 ability helped me a lot at removing big creature.

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Tezzeret the Seeker is in my consider list.

since i got a lot to way to filter(Sensei's Divining Top & Scroll Rack) and tutor my PW, not sure if i still need Arena Rector and Captain Sisay.

and im looking forward on a new PW at upcoming RNA block Kaya, Orzhov Usurper

Ajani, Mentor of Heroes only has one relevant ability for your deck, which is outclassed by Ajani Unyielding. He should be an auto include.

Will Kenrith seems like he would be outclassed by most planeswalkers. Dovin Baan, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, anyone.

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets and Sorin, Grim Nemesis deserve a spots in the deck, possibly over Ob Nixilis or Vivian Reid.

Settle the Score?

I realize that you have said that you're slowly building the manabase, insinuating that this is on a budget, but if you happen across a Captain Sisay, I would trade for or buy it.

Geralf_Cecani, already made the case for adding blue or green, I'm going to make a case for black or staying in mono white.

First off black actually has a straight up fog Darkness, splashing black also lets you use Batwing Brume to its full extent and the obvious Lingering Souls. Plansewalker wise you would have access to Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, both are pretty reasonable and more budget friendly than most. Note too that a new BE planeswalker is due for release with the next set.

This idea isn't really mine, I got it from foxinsox's deck Competitive Solemnity in Selesnya. This deck uses Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife to create a board state where you can't die. This is likely to work simply because enchantments are much harder to remove than other permanents. This is again a great way to stall out the board and frustrate your opponent. In the same vein so might Gideon of the Trials and white is the colour of tax cards like Rule of Law and Ghostly Prison...

Lastly, your card draw choices remind me of Owl-ing Mine, this deck uses Ebony Owl Netsuke to deal it's damage and cards like Boomerang and Remand to stall your opponents board. Again this isn't strictly my idea, as I got it from DaFerra's deck Owl-ing Mine.

Hope this was of help and give you some ideas...

I really think you should play Twilight Prophet, it's a Baneful Omen with card advantage. Also Sorin, Grim Nemesis is an Omen but with more options...

5th change:

Djeru, With Eyes Open for Toothy, Imaginary Friend

Shalai, Voice of Plenty for Oath of Liliana

Oath of Gideon for Oath of Jace

Demonic Tutor for Call the Gatewatch

Sorin, Grim Nemesis for Ob Nixilis Reignited

The cards I'm considering, but not sure what to remove: - Spike Weaver - Captain Sisay

Circle of Despair is a great card, but I don't have enough creature to make it work.

I love Oloro! I also play the life gain route, just not so much focus on tokens and more focus on taxing. I suggest Storm Herd, Martial Coup and Sorin, Grim Nemesis that seems to be in theme with your shenanigans.

i like the idea. the deck dose 2 things really well, drains life and keeps your opponents on the back foot. the other thing i need to be good at but is currently stuggerling with is evasion, as without solid evasion, tempo style control your going to struggle to utilise the ninjas to there best. some suggestions, a mix of vampire lords, general lord effects, some ninja staples
