Timely Reinforcements Discussion
6 days ago
You're very heavy on the 4-drop slot. I would recommend cutting the Approach of the Second Sun, since you should be trying to win by bringing your opponent's life to zero. Anointed Procession is cool, and can be powerful, but it relies on you following it up with other cards. THough pricey, this should be History of Benalia as this card does not depend on being followed up by another card and produces more Knights on its own.
You should be running 4 of the Dauntless Bodyguards in the maindeck, they should not be in the sideboard. You're going to be wanting to swarm the enemy in a flood of chivalry as fast as possible, and a few amazing 1 drops can help you out that way. Accorder Paladin, Knight of Glory, and Sigiled Paladin are all great 2 drop knights that help you out in attacking strong and early. Knight of the White Orchid can act as ramp, but is also a decent beater.
Mirran Crusader is extremely powerful and you should definitely be running 4 of this one.
Vona, Butcher of Magan is really cool and can give you an answer to nearly anything, and she helps pay for herself with that lifelink.
You'll also want to use some of black's card draw capabilities, since card advantage is definitely white's biggest weakness. Don't be afraid to spend a little bit of life to draw some cards with Dark Bargain, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, or Damnable Pact just to name a few.
For your sideboard, cards like Duress are very important if you're running black, I would recommend running 3-4 of these in your sideboard, since you have no other hand disruption. Celestial Purge is pretty popular, as is Timely Reinforcements. Vraska's Contempt and Anguished Unmaking can help you deal with opposing planeswalkers, and Unmaking hits any troublesome non-land, Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, and Zealous Persecution are very strong sideboard options as well.
Let me know if this was helpful or would like to know some of the reasoning's behind the suggestions!

As far as a replacement for snaps, you could try Mission Briefing. Also, why not do one Wrath of God and one Supreme Verdict to have separate names for gifts? Another good include, that helps you get to the late game, is Timely Reinforcements. It is great in the main board of gift decks like this.

First of all, what's your budget?
Other good token spawners, if you want to go that way, could be: Secure the Wastes, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Timely Reinforcements, Gather the Townsfolk, Beckon Apparition, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Things that help token are Intangible Virtue, Anointed Procession or Parallel Lives
If it's on budget I'd also suggest Voice of Resurgence

I also don’t think you have enough token generators. March of the Multitudes could be really good, as could a card like Hangarback Walker. Timely Reinforcements could really swing a game in a tight spot.

Monastery Mentor is also one of my favorite cards ever, so of course I'll recommend my guy. The problem with both is those are that they are 3-drops. Playing 3 of each plus 3-4 Spectral Procession is a super dense 3 spot.
A lot of the other white token cards just aren't very good... Raise the Alarm feels terribad most of the time. Gather the Townsfolk is just a worse RtA. If in tokens you get full value off of Timely Reinforcements you're doing it wrong.
Lingering Souls really makes the entire token archetype. Without Lingering Souls, you lack on the value aspect and then the next best path to go is Young Pyromancer. I think it's doable to do , but splashing is I think necessary. Even if it's just for Lingering Souls.

I feel like more sac outlets and more creature theft are a good plan, with a sideboard designed to swap in for those creature theft cards. Bazaar Trader oddly enough looks like it will underperform compared to a creature to sac to choker. I'd give some thought to Spawning Pit, Timely Reinforcements, then depending on what your overall list looks like, Ashes of the Abhorrent, Aven Riftwatcher, Witchbane Orb/Orbs of Warding and Pious Evangel Flip.

Ok so I shouldn't say it's better, but it is generally faster.
Very rarely have I had issues against Field of Ruin in particular. Decks like UW Control usually can't afford to turn-3 Stone Rain me if they're already low on life. Additionally, most people assume you have at least one basic, so normally they don't prioritize the Field until they see your decklist. If the game goes long and they start Fielding me, I'm probably in a bad spot already.
The Chancellors are there specifically for other aggro decks or turn-3 decks. In matchups where you'll draw about 3 cards, it is more likely to have it in your opening than to draw it naturally.
Spell Pierce is there to deal with opposing hate such as Collective Brutality and Timely Reinforcements. Since these cards make it that much harder to win, it's probably best to 1-for-1 the spell, even when you're on the draw.

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.
I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.
Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.
