@ Gloglok I know card advantage can be very difficult in mono white (It works with card value). For me Arch of Orazca cost too much as a card draw engine. I can recommend you following to try out:

Lifegain plan: Swap all cards below 5 mana except Weathered Wayfarer , so you can use Dawn of Hope . Key cards for a lifegain plan would be cards like Resplendent Angel , Archangel of Thune , Auriok Champion , Serra Ascendant

Add blue or black: Kills devotion and then the deck goes into white-blue or white-black prison control (see death and taxes) with angels as some finishers

Artifacts: not really productive to the devotion plan but Tower of Fortunes is one solid card draw engine. A while back i tested also Tamiyo's Journal but it both of them were too slow for me. (You can still try it tough)

Next update i do: (Mana base adjustments) Goes in: 4x Flagstones of Trokair + 1x Ghost Quarter Out: Field of Ruin

Next tests i do: Serra the Benevolent , requires more flying creatures to work properly. Angel of Jubilation stops enemy fetchlands, phyrexian mana, and any pay life effect but not bolt proof! , Archangel of Tithes actually perfect for this deck, swap for boardwipe Gideon Blackblade , requires even more low mana creatures like Knight of the Holy Nimbus which is actually a 3/3 indestructible for double white

This is pretty similar to my Nikya deck, and one thing I think would improve your deck is more utility lands, which make for great mana sinks once you have Nikya in play. I'd recommend Arch of Orazca , Rogue's Passage , Kessig Wolf Run , and Mystifying Maze . Aggravated Assault is another mana sink to consider, which even has a slim possibility of going infinite alongside some creatures that untap lands.

Have you thought about using the Arch of Orazca ? It was interesting in my testings, easily reachable even as a 1-of with the wayfarers, and super easy to ascend in the games you need it

I'd add Scavenger Grounds for graveyard hate and Buried Ruin to be able to rebuy your artifacts. For this reason, I also like adding Expedition Map to be able to tutor up your spell lands. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea & Arch of Orazca could be considerations as well.

Finale of Promise from WAR may be worth testing.

No Pyrohemia ? Is it not explosive enough?

I did some more testing with the deck. I personally feel that Arch of Orazca is a good include because it lets me dump my mana into something when I have no other plays for the turn. I definitely try to find a spot for Beast Whisperer though. Thanks for the suggestion!

I like the deck concept really cool looking deck here are some cards that could help I run a few of these in some of my decks

Lifecrafter's Bestiary , The Immortal Sun is nice but it has doubled in price to $20 I was lucky got mine for $8 then pulled one on a random pack i bought to support the store I play FNM.

Land fetch sword when you attack can help Sword of the Animist or cheaper option at upkeep Into the Wilds

Arcane Encyclopedia if you want somethign to go with your kicker theme Illuminate

Land that you can draw with Arch of Orazca then there is one that lets you shuffle your library Madblind Mountain

Fungal Plots if you do not care about graveyard everyone gets extra Rites of Flourishing

There are some other ones but that is the major ones i can think off

Hmmm that is a much harder question :P

maybe try this:

-Sprout Swarm (just seems too expensive to buyback even with convoke)

-Alpha Authority (similar to boots but the cost is paid after and only works once)

-Channeler Initiate (bit out of place as there are better mana dorks, I know you can dump all the -1/-1 on a saproling but a 3/4 just does not seem worth it)

+Swiftfoot Boots

+Lightning Greaves

+Ashnod's Altar

another addition if you didn't mind going a little of theme is Winding Constrictor which would accelerate lots off your generation (even has synergy with oren-rief)

A couple of land swaps could work as well:

  • Bojuka Bog (this is just a nice utility card which will piss one GY recursion deck off :P)

  • Grim Backwoods (these two serve similar functions as they would replace the affect of Sprout Swarm whilst freeing up a card slot)

  • Arch of Orazca
