Cut down to 37 lands, I'd say. Probably...a Plains and a Forest?

Also. Hungry Lynx, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Bronzehide Lion, Fleecemane Lion, Leonin Warleader, Mowu, Loyal Companion, Ainok Bond-Kin, Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse.

You also need more removal. I'd recommend picking a few out of Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Nature's Chant, Return to Nature, Force of Vigor, Return to Dust. Those are single target creature/artifact/enchantment removal, mainly. You also need a bit of mass removal. I'd suggest something like Hour of Reckoning, Dusk / Dawn, Cleansing Nova, or Austere Command.

Very nice alternative. I must say I think your list of searchable demons is a little thin and not that much utility to get. It appears you mostly have demons that grant card draw in some fashion.

I would probably put in something like Archfiend of Depravity or Pestilence Demon for swarm control. And I do find Archfiend of Despair a very neat tech choice to wallop an opponent out who has taken a bit too much damage. Or Sower of Discord to either dissuade an opponent from attacking into you or to utilize damage against one player to swing against another.

While Reaper from the Abyss is a very nice card that keeps on giving, I find Overseer of the Damned to be a good alternative, as the effect happens immediately and can better be utilized to save your skin or deal with a problematic creature from an opponent.

Also I'm surprised to not see Secret Salvage nor Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker in your list.


All this being said I don't think I'll ever drop the Orzhov variants of Shadowborn Apostle decks.

The amount of value you can get with Black-White is well worth it in my eyes.

Cards like Aven Shrine or Remembrance are easily paying themselves back in short time.

Include cards like Immortal Servitude and Rally the Ancestors and if you're a bit more casual; Angel of Glory's Rise. Even if you only have a small slew of Apostles, you can use them again and again for quite cheap.

Of course there's the palette of removal that is accessible with white; Vindicate, Utter End, Anguished Unmaking. Merciless Eviction is also a favorite along with Austere Command.

And while we're at it, throw in a Smothering Tithe.

I don't love:

Acidic Slime Even with the low power high-ish cmc synergy, I don't think this gets there.

Polukranos, Unchained this seems like it just doesn't do enough, even with the free reanimate.

I like:

Satyr Wayfinder Makes you hit your land drops & fills your yard.

Migratory Greathorn All the cheapish mutate seem great as an additional way to trigger your general.

Syr Konrad, the Grim I like this guy. He does a ton of damage.

Sawtusk Demolisher Similar to Greathorn.

Eladamri's Call I love this in most w/g creature-centric decks.

Heroic Intervention Also much cheaper now. Nice to have up after getting a mutate.

Austere Command Really just need a few wraths. This could be subbed for any number of options.

Animate Dead Some cheap reanimate spells seem good.

Hi,

We like your deck! It looks fun to play and you have a decent all-around mix in here to make it relatively resilient. Here are some ideas we had:

We hope these suggestions helped you. If you like white decks, please have a look at ours. We have one based on Kemba, one based on Odric and one based on Avacyn.

Have fun brewing and playing! Many regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Hello fellow worshiper of Orah,

You can check my list out at Skyclave's Judgment , feedback welcome! My build focuses on max Orah value by loading up on 1 drops. Not sure if this is the right approach but its what I'm starting with. I've built a ton of Cleric tribal decks dating back to Onslaught block and am very excited for this commander.

I would look to increase your total amount of creatures and clerics specifically. In order to accomplish this, some cuts I can recommend are: Black Market(too slow/fragile), Debt to the Debtless (not enough ramp/coffers), Ghostly Prison (not necessary). These are all pretty good cards however I've found to make tribal synergy decks work its important to be fairly ruthless with the noncreature inclusions.

Removal wise I prefer Retribution of the Meek to Citywide Bust. I would swap out a couple single target removal spells for Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile, Unmake and Mortify perhaps. Austere Command is also a must include imo.

At the risk of making this post even longer, I think more card draw is important, 10 cards at least. Some possible inclusions could be:

Hope the above comments are useful and that I didn't go overboard. I welcome further discussion if you're interested.
