Upvotes are welcome and I will sacrifice an onion to honor those who give their +1s! Remember to write a comment, so I can correctly perform the ritual in your name! Of course, any suggestion and constructive opinion is taken into account, reviewed and appreciated. Cheers! SACRIFICE ONION
- T1: Plains + Hada Freeblade
- T2: Plains + Kazandu Blademaster
- T3: Plains + Kabira Evangel And swing for 6 unblockable.
- T4: Plains + Ondu Cleric and cast Cloudshift on it, gain 8 life, and swing for 12, unblockable.
BONUS TRACKS: Join the Ranks work just fine in your turn or in the opponent's, along with Kabira Evangel. Ghostway will trigger the ETB effects X times, where X is the number of allies you have when they all return to the battlefield.

BattleWalrus Thank you, I love being cheap...... wait what??
No but seriously, thanks. If you happen to think of some improvement or whatever, bring it on, I'll be happy to read it. Also if you need feedback with anything just ask! :)
Boza Yeeeeah! Also you got yourself an onion sacrificed in your name. The deck is indeed effective. When it starts gaining life, it's unstoppable. Thanks for the upvote man!

A thought just occurred to me, have you ever considered AEther Vial for instant speed Ally triggers and Pseudo haste?
March 17, 2014 5:07 p.m.
This Message Will be short, as I'm repying from a phone hahah
EKGwins Thanks! It is fun indeed... when the opponents start making funny faces or showing pain, it is even better. ;)
Ohthenoises It's an option, but what would you take out? Also, maybe just blinking could act that way, like activating a Kabira Evangel or similar. Suggestions are much welcome. The problem I see with AEther Vial is that I may not have allies in my hand to put on the battlefield... Maybe I should put a drawing engine first.
Thanks to you all again for your feedback !!
March 18, 2014 12:02 a.m.
Love the blinking of the Allies! +1!
The onion gods demand satisfaction. :)
March 21, 2014 1:15 a.m.
WHAT. I am in shock. It's so awesome, even without its amazing budget! W the budget in mind, I am just blown away. Puts my tribal deck Flash Flood to shame! Maybe you have some advice...hahahaha cool deck +1 from me, would like to give it +2
March 22, 2014 2:30 p.m.
JakeHarlow The gods had their will fulfilled. It was so emotive that I had to cry, very nice ritual <3. Thanks for passing by, much appreciated ;)!
Manapanda Hey! I'm gonna blush! Yes, the budget is one of it's features... I try to create my decks within the "cheap" and the "not-so-expensive" price range. My record, and also my most efficient deck would be Luxuria (RDW) with around 27 dollars as is. And it can be even cheaper.
I will check your deck Flash Flood and maybe we can think of something, don't know, will see ;)!
Thanks for the point, feedback and good words! Much much appreciated. Check my other decks if you are in the mood! See you around...!

Mirror Entity is an ally and everything else.
Also you can pump up creatures to a ludicrous power/toughness in addition to whatever 1/1 counters they have.
March 25, 2014 2:15 p.m.
Hey there Busse very nice deck +1
Cards that need replacement
Oblivion Ring i see no use for this card really.
Emeria, The Sky Ruin you have 20 mana in this deck... You need 7 for it too work also by that time someone most likely lost or won.
Fiend Hunter a blocker + exile target creature and bring it back... I think i just pissed my pants.
That's all i got - 40caliber
March 25, 2014 3:51 p.m.
Actually, I find Oblivion Ring works much better since it exiles any nonland permanent, whereas Journey to Nowhere only hits creatures. Also, Restoration Angel works well for flicker decks. And you might also want a Cavern of Souls in place of Emeria, and a few things that work well with humans, since pretyty much all the creatures. Something like Champion of the Parish .
April 2, 2014 6:10 p.m.
Just bought this super super budget version of your deck for 15 dollars on the dot.Very Budget Allies.
Thanks for the build man.
April 5, 2014 4:08 a.m.
All I did was.
-4 Ghostway (This one hure because it's such a great card in here.)
-2 Mirror Entity (Not that expensive but just personal prefference to not have shapeshifters in tribal decks haha)
April 5, 2014 3:34 p.m.
Has anyone suggested Restoration Angel yet? It seems like it might fit, but what do I know..
April 7, 2014 7:37 a.m.
Journey saves from board wipes as well.
April 10, 2014 2:08 a.m.
Consider 4x Hallowed Fountain to let you cast flashback for the Momentary Blink you have to get even more value out of their inclusion. They also count as Plains so it works for your Emeria, The Sky Ruin . Also, consider running a second one of those.
April 11, 2014 1:36 a.m.
Allies was the first tribe I played when I started during Worldwake. Great deck.
I agree with including Restoration Angel . It serves as an ally trigger plus you get a flyer.
April 26, 2014 9:12 p.m.
How well does this deck do against other common modern decks?
April 27, 2014 4:08 p.m.
April 27, 2014 4:20 p.m.
Sejiri Steppe might be a nice addition as a 2 of. I still really love this deck, white has always been my favorite, then black xD. Could you take a look at my reanimation deck. It needs a little tweaking and i just can't figure it out. I've been using this deck to test against it, and i just seem to run out of steam. I'm on the fence with my choice of using Grisly Salvage over Altar's Reap
May 12, 2014 3:57 p.m.
Love this concept! great work bro on putting this deck together. +1 from me.
May 12, 2014 10:09 p.m.
Nice ally deck. Come over myr to see the cutest damn creatures you have ever seen with Special Tribal: Come Myr Friends!

June 10, 2014 9:32 p.m.
How does this deck deal with discard like 8-rack or infect discard? Also how do you replenish your hand when you have a bad mulligan or two or are out of cards (like playing against control for example)? I playtested this a bunch of times and I tend to sit on my hands with nothing but lands for quite some time after turn 4-5 if they draws don't work.
June 13, 2014 7:09 a.m.
Hallowed Fountain seems like a must to make your blinking more efficient with Momentary Blink . Considering your complete lack of draw engine, I'd suggest a Mentor of the Meek or two. As with most fast mono white decks, I'd also consider running an Endless Horizons or two - the least it'll do is thin your deck when you don't want to draw any more land, and with the ridiculous life gain in this deck, I don't think this is a particularly slow play on turn four.
June 20, 2014 4:08 p.m.
Love it +1. Definitely gonna try running a variation of this deck! I'm gonna throw in a playset of Champion of the Parish since I have them anyway. I feel like if you don't get Hada Freeblade out on the first turn it handicaps this deck severely. At least if you get a Champ it won't completely ruin the tempo.
June 21, 2014 11:30 a.m.
June 21, 2014 11:51 a.m.
The only thing you are missing is a sidedeck. I recommend
June 21, 2014 2:50 p.m.
You should replace oblivian ring with journey to no where
July 27, 2014 1:39 p.m.
Why you opted for less creatures and more cantrips!? After some playtesting I noticed that this deck has more dead draws then it had before the change! You now always end up drawing hands that have too many blinks which become useless with only 18 creatures. Also without any sort of card draw, this deck folds to a lot of basic control shennanigans now.
August 24, 2014 10:55 a.m.
you lack 2 humans or allies to be a tribal deck. Tribal requires 20 of the same creature type. But otherwise very nice deck.
August 29, 2014 3:37 a.m.
If you feel like splashing another color, fetch lands and shock lands are a great addition (especially since you can often off-set the life lost form these cards with the life gain from clerics and or paladins.). I splashed blue for some draw power and a few cards such as Detention Sphere . Doing so also allows you to use the flashback on Momentary Blink . Green and Black might also have uses.
September 12, 2014 3:43 p.m.
Flagstones of Trokair is expensive but may be worth it.
Cavern of Souls Makes you Very good against control.
September 12, 2014 8:34 p.m.
gonna speak for him... but raise the alarm doesnt create ally triggers. join the ranks does.
September 19, 2014 8:15 p.m.
Military Intelligence would be great if you had some blue.
If anything Worship May come in handy.
September 21, 2014 2:23 p.m.
I run 2 copies of Mask of Memory in my build and they are great.
It's not hard to get in and hit with this deck. This has single handedly kept me in the game, specially with Ondu Cleric helping us stick around for the late game!
Kabira Evangel , also synirgises well with the mask allowing us to get in and punch to the face.
September 21, 2014 4:54 p.m.
BattleWalrus: Took your advice man, the Talus Paladin were too inconsistent. Added also some token-generating cards. And Sejiri Steppe has crossed my mind, but I'm not sure if the ETB tapped will cripple the deck a litte too much. And use Altar's Reap any time :)
40cal: Hey man, thanks! Always good to read your advice. After some testing, Oblivion Ring proved more useful in the long run than Journey to Nowhere , allowing me to deal with enchantments like Painful Quandary or complicated permanents like + . Also I'm tempted to splash blue... but my OCD doesn't allow me to hahahhah
See you around! :D
PS: The Emeria, The Sky Ruin is not a critical cog in this machine, it's niche is just anecdotal in the event that the match goes long... or in multiplayer where the others can take the pressure while I stay bakc ;)
OpenFire & Caraculiambro: The angel is useful, yeah... but I'd rather use a proper ally in that slot (in case I just have Hada Freeblade or a couple Kazandu Blademaster deployed (they'd lose the counters). Thanks for the love by the way!
Red-Skull: It has some weak spots against extra-fast decks like infects or RDW like Luxuria, but with the survivability that Ondu Cleric and Kabira Evangel gives, its chances are good against pretty much every midrange deck.
trf6: AWWWWWW YEAAAAAH!
Grimgrinner: decided to get rid of both hahahaha, thanks anyway!
Goulash91: Considered a lot using Endless Horizons but came to thinks that it is a litte too risky to put all the lands or most of them in one single card, subject to removals like Naturalize or similar... don't know, really.
KnowForever: Hada Freeblade in the first turn is not essential... a turn 3 Kabira Evangel and turn 2 Kazandu Blademaster are. Link me the deck to take a look at it! Glad to serve as inspiration sometimes. Have a good day dude!
dsagent: Sideboard noted ;)
Flagstones of Trokair are very interesting, as they are expensive... but someday... someday...
Worship is a sonofabitch, but considering that I run 4x Ondu Cleric it may be pointless (life never gets near 0 :D) Thanks for your support man!!
dandugg: As I said, my OCD doesn't allow me to splash anything in the official version of this deck... in the spin-offs, well... black and blue become serious threats indeed.
ambeault: 100% of the creatures are the same type... % enough to consider it tribal. Thanks for the love!
Funbar: It fuckin' is... thanks for the point man, you got yourself an onion-sacrifice.
seanobiwan928: see above, the ring helps against the less-creatures kind of decks.
Every up-voter got himself/herself an onion sacrificed, thanks for the amazing support! It's always a pleasure to read ya'll. I also invite you to check the other 4 mono-coloured decks in this series! See you around people!
September 22, 2014 10:33 a.m.
awesome deck! and spare that onion ;) they are ppl too
October 7, 2014 5:36 p.m.
Hey awesome Deck, just tested it and it works fine ".. Im a beginner but this is just amazing <3 +1
October 18, 2014 9:53 a.m.
wait... votes equate to sacrificing onions?
STOP VOTING, SAVE THE ONIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
no really this deck is bonkers
October 22, 2014 9:14 p.m.
DON'T SACRIFICE MY ONION!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, TO LATE!
wow, much budget, very win.
October 22, 2014 9:24 p.m.
Looks awesome, gotta love that price range as well
+1 from me
November 13, 2014 5:33 a.m.
Hi, in my playgruop there are several guys runing melira pod decks, and i have a hard time fighting them, what is a good sideboard card for this deck that helps the matchup?
November 14, 2014 8:20 p.m.
speaking for him, but Disenchant (to blow up pods), Surgical Extraction, Tormod's Crypt (to exile the finks or redcaps) are good options for a deck like this vs pod. Path to Exile (which is main boarded) also works well to exile melira and or seer.
November 14, 2014 8:24 p.m.
I'm curious as to why the name? is it bleach because its mono-white?
November 20, 2014 12:01 p.m.
So I think Mirror Entity is less useful in this deck. The activated ability does not add X/X counters, rather it converts all creatures you control to X/X, so using it on turn 5 would actually decrease the power of Kazandu Blademaster and Hada Freeblade. I just feel those two slots could be better used with maybe another Path to Exile and another Brave the Elements. Or since that would make this creature light, add another Join the Ranks and make sure to activate that turn 5 instead, leading to all your creatures abilities activated twice.
January 1, 2015 2:50 p.m.
Great deck +1You know that creatures with changeling are allies, too.
January 2, 2015 12:05 a.m.
January 2, 2015 3:42 p.m.
errr just realized Torpor Orb shuts your own deck down even harder, lmao. ignore that. Celestial flare is gravy in the 15 though.
January 2, 2015 3:48 p.m.
January 4, 2015 2:41 p.m.
hi i like your deck! can you guys check my allies deck allies its quite similar but i splashed green
January 17, 2015 9:50 a.m.
January 31, 2015 3:54 a.m.
My question is how the exile works with the counters. If you have a turn 3 Hada Freeblade that should have 3 counters on it, then you play Cloudshift does the Freeblade retain the 3 counters and enter with another one, or does it reset and only enter with 1?
Thanks for the help! Also, do changelings trigger the ally ETB effect on the other allies?
February 3, 2015 6:20 p.m.
- The counters would reset and it would enter with 1.
February 3, 2015 7:13 p.m.
+1 from me bro.I'm loving the budget, the mono white, and the relatively easy play style. And as for the onion sacrifice, holds out onion and sniffles, Take it you need it more than I do.
February 16, 2015 6:36 p.m.
I'm just here to say that Chlorite is spelled with an H in it.
February 27, 2015 9:38 p.m.
Dully noted. Fixed. The person responsible for that will be slapped.
February 27, 2015 9:50 p.m.
Have you seen the new DoT enchantment Mirror Mockery? I think with splash blue (which I already have for the Shapeshifter Ally and sb cards) it would work perfectly in this deck. Activates all the abilities every time you attack and you get a bonus attacker.
Only problem would be against some blue decks...if you activate protection against blue, the enchantment will disappear.
I'd put it into mainboard nonetheless.
March 12, 2015 10:35 a.m.
Oh...it doesn't say attacking or blocking token...so you won't have an extra attacking creature. But the ability trigger itself should be reason enough to use it.
And you can enchant enemy's creatures as well...pretty versatile card.
March 12, 2015 11:21 a.m.
How about Mutavault? ETB Ally triggers all day
March 20, 2015 5:47 p.m.
Mutavault doesnt create ally triggers. It is already in play when you can activate its ability.
March 20, 2015 7:21 p.m.
March 21, 2015 4:12 p.m.
if you had both Oblivion Ring and Journey to Nowhere you could essentially choose when to return the exiled card to the battlefield. You could exile a creature with Journey to Nowhere and then exile Journey to Nowhere with Oblivion Ring i don't know if that makes sense or would even work, kind of new to the game.
March 25, 2015 1:53 p.m.
March 25, 2015 1:57 p.m.
Obviously not my deck... but I feel I can probably speak for him in some matters.
@ reber88You interpretation of the interaction between O ring and JtN are correct. But the interaction is also super clunky if you just want "more control" over when an exile creature returns to play" Between Cloudshift and Ghostway he already does have a lot of control over the timing of the exiled allies re-entering play. And Ghostway only kind of removes counters from your allies. All your allies enter simultaneously as so they all triggers theirs and each others' triggers simultaneously. So if you exiled an Ondu Cleric, 2 Kazandu Blademasters, a Kabira Evangel, and a Hada Freeblade with a Ghostway, they would all exile until end of turn and then return to play at the end of turn. You would gain 25 life form the cleric, both blademasters would re-enter play and then gain 5 +1/+1 counters, You could give your allies protection from all 5 colors, and your hada freebalde would re-enter play and then again 5 +1/+1 counters.
March 25, 2015 2:18 p.m.
ah ok thank you for the explanation.. anyways like the deck a lot
March 26, 2015 1:10 a.m.
April 1, 2015 6:27 p.m.
it think Titanium Dioxide would have been a better name for a mono white deck
June 7, 2015 3:51 p.m.
Great deck. but I wanted to ask:
What's the exact purpouse of Path to Exile ? to Use on my own cards? How I make them come back then?
June 24, 2015 10:10 p.m.
did you call your deck bleach for mono white? just curious
August 4, 2015 3:24 p.m.
Great deck. Defiantly gonna pick it up. The new Gideon from bfz looks amazing.
How competitive is it? Newer player getting kinda discouraged from hanging a zero every week at fnm
