Looks great I have always loved metalwork colossus :) Just a point you don't run much colour in the deck so would Powerstone Shard not be better than Manalith in this deck the pretty much do the same thing and powerstone has the chance of doing a bit more (especially with mirage mirror)

Hi I am running a similar deck at the moment and was looking at yours for ideas. Have you considered a Reliquary Tower or two? you don't need all that blue especially with Navigator's Compass x4. Also Sai, Master Thopterist is brilliant in a deck like this!

Hi I like the deck theme, I made one myself a couple of months ago :) I was surprised not to see Wizard's Lightning most of the time in this deck it casts for 1. I would recommend Crash Through and Warlord's Fury they work very well for making your wizards bigger and the draw 1 enables you to keep up the pressure. Run Amok could be a good alternative to Built to Smash due to your lack of artefact creatures.

Completely understandable, looks like a fun deck :)

Hey I like the deck :) I absolutely love hidden stockpile and will be sad when it rotates! I was surprised to see a board wipe in the deck, but if you say it works I'll believe you. Never//Return is a great removal card for a deck like this (even if only for the sideboard) kill spell (creature or planes walker), token generation and graveyard hate.

Loving it :) Metallic Mimic can be a horse depends if you are willing to remove actual horses for horse mimics. Also Spire of Industry could help with mana, especially if you are running the fake horse!

Good shout lava axe is just more efficient, I had them in my maybe board but had not really considered them. The only other point is that you can use banefire early game if you have a Flame of Keld and it is not wasted as if you draw flame lash early you are probably going to discard it. I will test out both :). Adding black is interesting all three black cards mentioned would add to the deck. It will be a shame loosing flame of keld though. Glint-Sleeve Siphoner is another option in black does not fit in with burn as well however it does give card draw and it does have menace. I have always loved Sword-Point Diplomacy and have put it in multiple decks. I think it would be an interesting interaction in this deck as you would more often than not be told to draw the cards (nobody is going to spend 3 life to discard a shock).

So I started making/playing a similar deck and got shutdown by Shalai, Voice of Plenty just as I was approaching kill range (especially due to his blossoming defence on Shali). Whilst it will not be a problem all the time, the hexproof gifting angel is becoming so popular I think a side-deck option is needed. Detection Tower seems like it would work (I have not had a chance to test it yet) and I might even run in in mainboard to keep space in the side. (although This will mean I will have to take out Goblin Chainwhirler)

I do love a good dino deck :) I'm sorry I have to break it to you but I think Rampaging Ferocidon is banned in standard. On a different note with the nice enrage cards you have in your deck Rile could be quite delightful.

Came for the title stayed for the deck :P I like the deck, I have been thinking of making a standard mill as it is becoming possible again and I am delighted people are branching out from sole blue. I would suggest Scavenger Grounds for a sideboard (probably not main board in two colours) it is a desert to help your mill and it deny the yard for people who profit from your milling (GPG ect). TBH I was surprised I did not see Baral, Chief of Compliance in your list. Making things cheaper is lovely and he will actually give you draw with the counterspells you are running. He is also not to bad at keeping some aggro at bay (1/3 for 2) Also if you are already in white Dovin Baan could be very good. He reduces creatures, prevents activated abilities, draws cards and if you get his alt (not likely) brilliant control whilst you mill away their will to play magic. I also understand that he is a planeswalker who rotates out in autumn so you might not want to commit to him.

Glad I could help! I//I really does work well in my current deck. Although my deck itself is too unreliable and requires me to keep a very fragile board state alive (although being able to deal 36 damage on turn 4 can be very fun :P) . So I may be moving it to mono red burn. Could you keep the deck updated I am very interested to see any other changes/ ideas you might make or have :)

Hey EpicBox75, Keeping it mono coloured will defiantly keep it more consistent. My recommendation came from my old WB zombie life drain deck (which is not what you are doing). P.s yeah I really should have seen you were running quite a few 1 drops before suggesting another :p Could you keep this updated with any changes I am curious to see how it develops as a deck :) Ed

Brilliant deck, I'm seriously thinking about making a deck along these lines now :) Although Flame of keld +Gutter Snipe +Shock= 8 dmg not 6 it is even better!(Shock=2dmg Flame of Keld (on Shock)=2dmg Guttersnipe(on Shock)=2dmg and Flame of Keld(on Guttersnipe)=2dmg) have you considered putting an Insult//Injury in the deck? It works well in my wizards burn blue/red deck (built around Adeliz, the Cinder Wind) Thanks for sharing the deck, Ed

Hi loving the deck. I can see the zombies really getting quite big.
One suggestion could be splashing a little white in the deck. I know it could mean getting some cards out onto the field (like graveyard marshal) a little more difficult. However, if you kept it to a bare minimal splash for Wayward Servant it could be quite effective. This splash could be made quite easily with Concealed Courtyards and or Isolated Chapels. Which would also enable you to put an Anointed Procession in there (double the zombies=double the fun :D)
if you do not like the idea of adding white Festering Mummy is quite a nice 1 drop I know it is not as big as Diregraf Ghoul but its death effect can be very useful especially against aggro decks. It also can still trade with an opposing creature with 2 toughness the same as Diregraf Ghoul. Sorry for the long post, I am excited to see zombies make a comeback :) Thanks for reading, Ed

Lovely deck :) I have just been putting one together myself (also not on TO). Very similar decks, although mine will now be taking some inspiration from yours (thanks :P). May I suggest Appeal//Authority from HOD I think it works great. I know it is a buff spell at sorcery speed but when I have lots of cats it really does not matter (trample) and when trying to race against other beat down decks the vigilance granting aftermath is useful as well! I have also been toying with Shanna, Sisay's Legacy but I have not tested her enough to recommend including her.

Hey Rednova5Qs, Love the deck idea I have not seen enough mono white standard decks around. I would recommend running a solitary "Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle" not the largest creature but it's ability to get back your creature cards to the battlefield is great! I know you don't have a huge amount of historics in the deck but you probably have enough (Shalai, Legions Landing, Triumph of Gerrard, Ajani[9 in total]) Also land wise if you have some sunpetal groves it might not hurt to run them just in case you can use Shalai's activated ability (but this change really might not be worth making) "Shefet dunes" are probably a better land than the sunpetal grove for you you will not be using their pain effect very often (most of the time you will use them for colourless) and the extra anthem effect can be brilliant. Sorry for the long post I just got excited about your deck! Hope I helped, Ed
