This is my mono white soldier deck focused on the idea of taking damage, then healing back with the synergy between Darien, King of Kjeldor and Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant and Suture Priest whilst gaining a ton of soldiers in the process.
I want this to become a sort of defensive/pillowfort deck which can bite back pretty damn hard, suggestions very welcome!
Now, onto the explanations:
Insane when you are having a load of creatures enter this is insane
Massively updated this deck to get rid of the budget options and add some pretty expensive yet incredibly powerful cards.
Still looking for suggestions and since price is no problem, anything is welcome!
Neither of them seemed to be that good in EDH due to the small affect.
This deck needed some ramp pretty badly.
Dolmen Gate - Lets me attack with my creatures without worry
Healer of the Pride - Another soul sister, albeit not as good
Ajani's Pridemate - With a soul sister he becomes a big threat
Kabira Vindicator - Another anthem
Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant - Protection for my creatures
Fiend Hunter - Removal on a body
Brave the Elements - Never seemed as good in EDH as it is only one turn of protection
Gilded Lotus - Seemed a bit pricy so i am dropping it for now
Mask of Avacyn - There are better ways to protect my commander
Throne of Empires - The effect is just not good enough for only one soldier
Evangel of Heliod - The effect is not good enough for the mana cost
Needed a good boardwipe that didn't totally put my deck out of action and Oust didn't seem very good at sorcery speed.
I cannot make card links on my phone so I apologize in advance. Staff of Nin may be worth considering. One sided card draw is nice and you can ping yourself for 1 to make instant speed chump blockers. Or you can do it during the person before you's end step to make a slow engine. The engine isn't the best but instant speed chump blockers and additional card draw in white may be enough to give it a shot.
Also, Daru Warchief and Strionic Resonator. Any time you take damage you can double the amount of tokens you generate with the Resonator.
I love the deck. Do you think you could find a place for a Dictate of Heliod ?
Hey evkede thanks! Will find room for the dictate, not keeping up to date very well.
I'm not sure if this has been pointed out but, Mentor of the Meek is anti-synergestic with any of your buffs (and you are running a lot of those) because with 2 or more static buffs the tokens will be entering as 3/3s or bigger. I think he is a great card when no buffs are on the field, but with as many as you run (I counted no less than 10) I don't see that happening very often.
And with no budget limit a decent amount of mana ramp opens up: Mana Crypt Mox Diamond Chrome Mox Mana Vault Grim Monolith all make mana the turn they come out albeit with a slight downside if you are willing to pay that.
Thanks for the comment redawk, i do agree with the comment about the mentor so i may take him out for some of the cards you said.
Some of the ramp i may put in too, thanks!
The path just doesn't seem to do as much good as it could as i already have plenty of buffs that are better and more effective, the sovereign and gatekeeper, however, are really good and may find a place.
Although not a soldier Ajani Steadfast could make a great addition to this deck. Not only can he buff a single creature but he can create a permanent "anthem" affect on your whole army of soldiers. If he does get his -7 you would lose a lot of token production but it can act as last line of defense.
Sorry for two comments in a row but I feel that Martial Coup is a great fit for this deck.
