Brave the Elements


Choose a colour. White creatures you control gain protection from the chosen colour until end of turn. ((Remember the acronym debt.) White creatures you control can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything of the chosen colour. Anything of the chosen colour attached to your white creatures immediately fall off.)

Your primer description is basically what I have going on with my Saryth, the Viper's Fang deck. Just a mono-color showcase that somehow holds its own.

Brave the Elements seems like it could do some work here. An old favorite of mine from my earliest days play Mono white Allies. Dismantling Wave is also some solid removal.

Side note- I discussed your Ankle Shanker suggestion with my good friend, & I've decided to add it in. Might also add Vault of the Archangel & Kaya, Geist Hunter as some additional pieces to that package.

KBK7101 I really did think pretty hard about splashing the blue. Between Myrel, Shield of Argive and Brimaz, King of Oreskos pooping 1/1 tokens, and with Kayla's Reconstruction digging for additional cards, I just don't see the need for any of the blue cards. Brave the Elements is powerful enough by itself to protect creatures (instead of Zephyr Sentinel), and if I get Harbin, Vanguard Aviator on board and activated with 5+ soldiers it's basically just a "win more" card and I've likely already got the game in the bag. Were I to splash a color it would be green to get Collected Company, I think.

I do appreciate the thoughtful suggestions! They are good suggestions, but I just think staying mono-white is the cleanest version. Thanks for the comment!

Your deck looks solid! My only suggestion would be Brave the Elements as cheap mass protection piece for offense or defense.

Would Blacksmith's Skill be better then a 2 of Segovian Angel for protecting important threats. Or perhaps Brave the Elements for protection and sometimes getting in.

24 lands are too much for an aggressive deck, also you lack protection for your creatures.
to solve both I recommend cutting 3 Plains and adding 3 Brave the Elements.

Saw that you were looking for help and this commander seems pretty cool. Not sure what your budget is, but I'm going to make some suggestions at different price points.

Here's some cards I'd cut: Angel's Grace, Cleric Class, Angelic Accord, Treasure Chest, The Book of Exalted Deeds, Panharmonicon, Arcane Signet, Marble Diamond, Campfire, Mass Calcify, Brave the Elements, Cleansing Nova, Everflowing Chalice, and Gift of Estates

I can provide more explanation on why, but generally these cards are low impact, less helpful than they may seem, or off theme a bit. Some of these are life gain or ETB payoffs but they don't have many ways to trigger them.

I'm seeing a wincon through combat with the deck as is. Giada is Ramp in the command zone but only for Angels, and the starting list only has 17 Angel spells. Turn 2 Giada and hitting all your land drops means we can send out 4 CMC angels turn 3.

I recommend Emeria Angel, Guardian Seraph, Angel of Condemnation

A lot of the Angel's are high CMC but you're running a lot of cost reducers. Due to this I think you need more lands and more Draw. Arch of Orazca, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Sea Gate Wreckage and War Room are all utility lands you can run in mono color that tap for colorless mana and help you draw.

That leaves seven more cards to add back in. I'd go with Karmic Guide, Twilight Shepherd, Battlegrace Angel, Angelic Sleuth, Herald of the Host, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, and Aegis Angel

4 The Ozolith + 4 Ephemerate instead of Brave the Elements and some of the sorcery feels interesting, thanks !

Velomachus is very important to your strategy, so a few more ways to protect him would not go amiss. Some options like: Brave the Elements, Stave Off, Valorous Stance, Adamant Will, Blacksmith's Skill
