Need Help Taking Some Cards Out —Aug. 12, 2017

Have 64 cards and will need to take some cards out.

I think your mana curve is too high for the current meta, which is very fast out of the gate... maybe try taking out some of the 4+ CMC cards for a few 1/2 CMC cards.I'd probably suggest removing 1x Angel of Sanctions and 2x Angel of Condemnation in favour of 3x Selfless Spirit... these should also help against board wipes.

Your mana base also looks like it could use a bit of work, as a 50/50 split is probably not best for a primarily white deck... maybe something like 7x Island and 13x Plains would be better.

DragonEleven, this is made to be post rotation.

Fair enough... I was just thinking of a way to deal with your board wipe issue.

I'd still suggest lowering your mana curve though... the problem is there isn't much in the current standard that would fit with what you're trying to do.

The only other thing I can think of to suggest would be Adorned Pouncer... it's not got flying, but isn't bad for blocking in the early game, and works rather nicely with buff spells... plus, it can be eternalized in the late game, at which point it works rather nicely with Aven Wind Guide, making it a 4/4 with double strike, flying and vigilance.

Another quick thought... you could consider swapping out a few basic lands for Shefet Dunes.
