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.)

Pretty solid deck! I haven't made a mono colored deck in a while, but Red, White, and Black are the ones I'd probably take a shot at. Just a few quick ideas for stuff that might fit here:

  • Scapegoat and/or Brave the Elements are pretty cheap protection options.

  • If you're not opposed to Universes Beyond, Flowering of the White Tree could be an upgrade to Honor of the Pure. I've really liked it in my aggro decks that can run it. Mostly suggesting since I saw you already have Minas Tirith in your land base.

  • Fanatical Devotion could be a repeatable means of protecting your high value creatures by chucking.

  • More generally speaking, but I think one of the cool things about mono color decks is that you can run more utility lands like Volatile Fault or Scavenger Grounds than multicolor decks can typically get away with.

Best of luck with your deck if you've had a chance to play it irl. Ojer Taq seems ridiculous to get that creature token flowing.

A few things.

1st off. I think a soul sisters deck and angel deck are not compatible. Soul sisters make and want as many lifegain triggers as possible. Maximizing cards like Voice of the Blessed . Angels i believe want to maintain x life above your starting life and gain in chunks of 5 for probably the best angel Resplendent Angel. These seem simular but that creates tough choices in deck design.

Book of Exalted Deeds with creature lands is a combo with Mutavault some decks just can't beat this.

I think you want the card draw off of Shelter but I personally think that card sux. You would likely be better with a green splash for just Collected Company or run a cheaper protection spell like Brave the Elements or a better card draw engine Welcoming Vampire perhaps.

Speaker of the Heavens is a suprise op card i have a angel deck on mtga for historic and it is a great agro card angels needed.

You are light in 1 key piece of any deck. Interaction.

March of Otherworldly Light is a favorite of mine.

Path to Exile could be decent

Dawn Charm niche counterspell/ protect a creature

Surge of Salvation protection vs opposing aggro

I'd suggest looking at another decks sideboard to help build a better one Check out decks like modern d&t or soul sister or angels and see what you want. But be sure to cover a few things.

Graveyard hate like Soul-Guide Lantern Something to fight control many different approachesCavern of Souls Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Artifact/enchantment hate Disenchant

And something for decks that you think you need more help with and expect to face. Perhaps a boardwipe for decks that go wide Doomskar or any other archetype/problem that needs fixing.

I think if you have the budget, you need to at least upgrade the mana. Include 2x Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire, 1x or maybe 2x Castle Ardenvale, 1x Shefet Dunes (you'd be surprised at how effective that +1/+1 thing can be at istant speed!), and maybe 1x Cave of the Frost Dragon as a place to sink mana for attacking if you get wrathed.

Guardian of Faith also nicely fits your theme and is an underrated card that can be extremely useful. I get that you're trying to stick with humans, but I think there's already a really, really good humans deck, so I would exploit the vigiliance and worry less about the humans aspect (see below).

On that note, Reidane, God of the Worthy  Flip would be a solid addition, if at least for the sideboard.

While it doesn't have vigilance when activated, maybe Smuggler's Copter? Ha! I know, we're jamming it in every deck to see if it will work, but in this type of aggro deck it just might and it provides you a nice way to draw some cards.

Last suggestions for the main are Brave the Elements and maybe something like Temporary Lockdown or Ossification in the main board. I get that you have humans, but I think these are just better than Sanctuary Lockdown or Collective Effort. Even Get Lost would be a great addition, or possibly Declaration in Stone in the sideboard.

Your sideboard should probably include Rest in Peace to deal with Izzet Phoenix and Amalia Combo, and probably should have Damping Sphere to deal with Lotus Combo. Containment Priest is also another solid sideboard consideration.

Oh, a fun card that might be cool would be Rally the Ancestors (or Return to the Ranks, maybe). For surprise blocking? Just a thought.

Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

I see you already have it in your Maybeboard, but I think Flowering of the White Tree can probably replace Honor of the Pure in your mainboard. All of your non-Legendary creatures would get the same buff as Honor of the Pure, plus the additional upsides for all your Legends. I've had a chance to play it in my Isshin, and Burakos/Folk Hero decks, and liked how it played in both.

Brave the Elements and Scapegoat are both fairly cheap board protection effects.

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.
