Ooh how about a 1 of Vault of the Archangel ?

I'm not saying it's tier 1, but it seems pretty decent. You're sort of halfway between aggro tokens and hatebears. It's the best non-burn monocolored archetype I've seen so far, which is most of the reason it's so cheap. You could easily splash black for Thoughtseize , Tidehollow Sculler , Vault of the Archangel , and potentially even Lingering Souls , but then you're basically playing Tokens, and spending hundreds of dollars on land. I wish I could get away with the splash, but I feel like I'm not ready to invest that much into Modern just yet.

I actually remembered from Innistrad Standard days that Lingering Souls and Vault of the Archangel is pretty sick too, and the lifelink could be good if I want to throw down multiple Dark Confidant .

Vault of the Archangel gives your creatures a lot of pressure to create ... thus it provides only 1 instead of G or W but i assmue you will use the active of Stirring Wildwood only for blocking

do your 2v2 games tend to reach T6+? or are they relatively quick?

If lasting beyond the 6th turn, I would highly recommend adding more card draw and big late game bombs.

Here are my suggestions for doing so:

add 2-3 (I recommend trying to fit a 3rd) Phyrexian Arena s.

  • 1 life is NOTHING when you get to pop out an extra spell or two every single turn. Plus it'll get you to your Vault of the Archangel quick (which I suggest you bump up to 2 instead of 1)

Swap your current Elspeths for Elspeth, Knight-Errant . The constant token popper is more crucial then the life gain, this can help end the game quicker. It's ultimate is a game finisher while the current Elspeths may not be.

Find room for at least 1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion . She is in every single control deck containing White for a reason. 3 1/1s every turn until you end up with 9 3/3 Flyers for 27 damage just by her alone is essential.

Possible Take-out cards

Veteran's Armaments can be cool, but is underwhelming when faced against any type of board control. This card is more of a "Win-More" card.

Accorder Paladin seems he is too susceptible to removal. Plus given that he is SO weak, won would only get one turn of battlecry out of him before he dies. if you take him out, you have the room for at least 2 of the Phyrexian Arena which are much harder to get rid of and help you MUCH MUCH more.

Play around with some numbers, see what you can do.

My friends and I like playing 2v2. And the 2 I am against HATE it when the other and I play

Its a massacre. Basically the idea is one creates a complete shutdown while the other buffs a hexproof creature to insane dmg to win. Both the deck are very consistent so we win on average Turn 5 and they have next to no board state.

Try something like that maybe?

Create a pillow fort deck (usually U/W with Propaganda and Ghostly Prison type shenanigans) while the other builds an unstoppable army type deck. Price
