Wow these are great. Actually playable preconstructed decks?!?! This is long overdue and awesome!

I would probably swap Chart a Course for Think Twice. The reasoning is simply, you don't have a lot of creatures to attack with and Think Twice being at instant speed means you can hold mana open for counters and then cast it EOT if you don't need to counter anything. Beyond that it holds value even if you have to discard it.

Dictate of Kruphix has it's uses but I feel like you would benefit more from Opt or Serum Visions as a form of additional draw. You really don't want to be feeding the opponent answers.

I would also suggest you drop Sphinx of Magosi, Cancel, and Oppressive Will from your SB completely as well as cutting Guile down to 1 copy. I can't think of a single match Sphinx of Magosi would be relevant in. Even then Staff of Nin is probably better for the mana. Cancel is overpriced. You really don't want to be boarding in additional 3 mana counters. They're just too slow for the format. Disallow works because you can stop fetches and other relevant activated abilities but Cancel doesn't offer much utility. Oppressive Will again is overpriced and conditional. I would instead add 1x Lone Revenant in place of the additional Guile. 4x Spreading Seas in place of Cancel. 3x Ceremonious Rejection in place of Sphinx of Magosi. 1x Telepathy & 1x Kraken's Eye, Disdainful Stroke, Summary Dismissal, or Reality Shift in place of the 2x Oppressive Will.

Idea for standard:

Don't play standard :)

Instead of Clash of Wills how about Condescend?

February 20, 2018 7:08 p.m.

This deck desperately needs some land destruction but with triple white demands and only 20 lands I'm hesitant to add colorless mana.

Timely Reinforcements is beastly, certainly not planning on cutting it. I am contemplating swapping Ensnaring Bridge for some Gideon of the Trials though; since they both kind of fill the same roll but Gideon of the Trials offers some other value. ...and this deck is all about value.

Yea, I don't really think Wall of Omenss is what my deck wants, was just trying to see if I was overlooking anything else.

So I have Godsend in for stuff like Reality Smasher and bigger threats but does any one feel its a good idea to just switch it over to Sword of Fire and Ice instead?

Sky Hussar is interesting. I just don't like that it's limited to your upkeep. Would be awesome even at sorcery speed.

So what I'm gathering is that Wall of Omens is pretty much the best draw option? (for my deck)

Thanks but no thanks Pieguy396. I'm sure your deck works well enough but I'm looking to play grindy board control not creature shenanigans.

As you can see the big glaring weakness is lack of draw and lack of ways to deal with lands.

What is the best mono white draw spell?

Also is there any land hate beyond the colorless lands?

February 20, 2018 2:59 p.m.

I a co-sign with above. My go to Selesnya hate cards are Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, & Suppression Field (planeswalkers, fetches, ScOoze, land destruction, manlands). Some other good choices are Timely Reinforcements, Wrath of God, and Mana Tithe.

Oblivion Ring is a good catch all. I'm a fan of a MB Soul Tithe as well for the same reason.

Marrow Shards can cause blow outs against Goblins does quite well against Tokens, Snapcaster, & Bob.

Play Control?

February 16, 2018 11:56 p.m.

Well I've only played 2 games with this deck so far. 1 being Control which was a draw due to time but it seems tokens and our value creatures are pretty solid in the match up. I think some land destruction and manlands would improve things but don't feel comfortable adding colorless to the mana base currently.
