yeah, sideboard needs some rework. Have you thinked about adding cards like Dispel Ashes of the Abhorrent or Deafening Silence?? Also i would include 1 High alert and 1 Huatli for grabbing them with Fae of Wishes

My first thought is “How does this deck manage to function on barely 31 Lands and a total of 5.5 Ramp spells and 3 Mana Rocks?!”

Archons are a VERY expensive tribe to run; I would be cramming as mana Land tutors and mana rocks into this deck as I could, along with at least 37 lands.

I tried running an Elf tribal deck with 30 lands and always found myself wanting more lands after the first board wipe, and Elves average 1-4 mana each—I bumped that deck up to 36 and it’s much smoother nowadays. The Archons here average 5.8 mana each.

It’s not fun to sit there wishing you had more mana to play your big, bomb-y creatures while your opponents are doing stuff the whole game. I’ve been there more times than I care to remember.

If you don’t want to add more ramp and mana fixing, the other option is to go more heavily into stax and tax effects to slow down your opponents to give yourself more time to build up to your big spells. You have a couple in the deck already, but there’s tons of options, especially since you’re playing 4c and Archons just happen to be primarily in White and also just so happen to love creating stax effects of their own, AND they DO like Enchantments!

Mystic Barrier

There’s obviously more than this, but I’m on my phone and these are what came to mind.

I feel like Black Market should go on this list since it spits black mana forever at you for just seeing a creature die. This leads into similar cards like Ashes of the Abhorrent, Grave Betrayal, Moonlit Wake, Revel in Riches, Shadows of the Past, to name a few of my favorites in this vein

White has great 'prevention' cards. These prevent your opponent from doing anything. I'm coming from pioneer, and I'm sure there are a ton of other cards that aren't in pioneer that are like these.

I use these in my deck:

I love this design!!!

I really love the use of Ashes of the Abhorrent, but I think Ground Seal and Rest in Peace are much better unless you really need the life gain.

Take a look at mine

I like Ashes of the Abhorrent. Low CMC and I think its a powerful effect against decks with graveyard interaction. I would like to hear your thoughts.
