Hey, first of all thank you for sharing this nice deck. What are your thoughts about Admonition Angel ? I really want to find a slot for it in this deck.

You are absolutely right with the competitive level in 2021. With more and more powercreep over the last years, white decks in particular got worse and worse. Here is an nice explanation of whats happening atm. White is not the color of removal. It was way more competitive in 2016-2018 but today it holds up pretty well and i think its the most fun deck i own to play.

Just checking in to say that your suggestions from our last discussion have proven to be very interesting!
Skyclave Apparition + Charming Prince is huge! The Prince replaces the Wall and is a human, the life gain/flicker options which are nice to have to complement the scry 2/draw of the Wall, plus its attack of 2 can sometimes dissuade some attackers. And the Apparition is a good replacement of the Oblivion Ring , with added devotion and the fact that they never get the card back (and the flicking with the Prince is just yummy!)
Emeria's Call Flip is great, always a positive as a one-of/two-of, and the small synergy with Lyra Dawnbringer and the fact that she is legendary has made me prefer her to Baneslayer Angel (or Linvala , as I don't have too many creature-based combos in my meta).
Mistveil Plains + Secluded Steppe are doing a lot more than I expected! Like you said, with the Wayfarer you can pay to draw a card, or to do it every turn, which in practice has been more interesting than the Arch for me. And finally, the Mistveil Plains are not only great with the Steppe, but also with any legendary angel an opponent would have destroyed/made you discard as you can bounce the Lancers with the Prince to get your angel back! It can really make the difference, and my angels have come back to play this way infinitely more in a few games than Emeria, The Sky Ruin has ever done.
Deck is very smooth now, a joy to play again! I won't pretend it's competitive in 2021's Modern state but I'm having a great time and you still get a fair amount of wins against non-control decks! Cheers :)

Maybe try to splash some black multi-colored lands for Yarok, the Desecrated, I know this is very competitive and he is only a 3/5 for 5 mana along with three different types of mana but he is seriously good with everything here, with Charming Prince to Wall of Omens or Resilient Khenra. Try him out, another suggestion if you put in Yarok, the Desecrated also I would recommend Tireless Tracker which is good in modern anyway. But this deck is mostly white so it would take some serious tweaking but it would help

Gideon of the Trials is a very versatile card on its own but i had to swap it out because Runed Halo has no synergy with any planeswalkers. Runed Halo showed to be just too good to be swapped out. (It only struggles if you always play against new brew decks)
Skyclave Apparition is an option i'm testing at the moment (Works quite good). It would fit way better if it were an Angel or Human though (for Caverns and Deck flavor). You would have to swap out Wall of Omens for Charming Prince then for the additional interaction.
Linvala, Keeper of Silence I keep her in here because i have someone who plays Slivers in my playgroup with a value combo Dormant Sliver and later Necrotic Sliver. If she enters the battlefield, it's game. Lyra Dawnbringer is really nice but its ability need a lot of Angels on the battlefield. She works way better if the Angels are cheap, like 2 - 3 mana drops. I've not seen a non lifegain Angel that low except maybe Serra Avenger
Giver of Runes is insane and would be a great addition, because i cannot deal with Path to Exile myself. I tried it with Ranger-Captain of Eos a while ago but somehow the deck got slow i lost one match after the other. Not sure how i could include Giver of Runes at the moment. I have a Eight-and-a-Half-Tails Sideboard against control which you can fetch.
Emeria, Shattered Skyclave is a must include for this deck even if you cannot fetch it. Every white deck i own has it now. Ondu Skyruins is not really needed, i included it because i play a lot of multiplayer at the moment.
Secluded Steppe + Mistveil Plains gives Weathered Wayfarer the ability to tap and draw a card for 4 mana (Activating Mistveil Plains cost 1 mana. At least some card draw engine, you can try Arch of Orazca if you like it more. I like the land fetch ability more XD).
What i really need for this deck is 3 drop removal better than Oblivion Ring. Grasp of Fate is strictly better but not modern. Banisher Priest and Fiend Hunter die easily to removal. I hope some day a set will bring something printed on an Angel

Making a few changes as possible, I would consider focusing on creatures entering the battlefield, since that's where your token generation is. Keeping a cheap budget in mind, I would suggest a few copies of Strionic Resonator and a few ways to bounce or blink your creatures, i.e. Cloudshift/Charming Prince/Flickerwisp to double up on the token generation. Also Baneslayer Angel has gotten remarkably cheaper in recent years. Hope this helps.

Well, there's no point in talking about a deck I can't use. -_- I have wishclaw as my drawing engine so that I can draw whatever cards I need to while trying to use everything against any opponent that I have. Flying enchantments that have 'draw one card' are good against any deck, especially flyers, and if it doesn't work out, I drew one card. There are very few Eldrazi I would run as they are focused on huge mana cost cards, unless I can somehow use a ton of 1 mana cards and make them ramps with Cryptolith Rite as well as other ramps like Pillar of Origins and lands like Unclaimed Territory and Wastes.
And any examples of other toolbox decks would be nice. I looked for 'toolbox deck pioneer' on Youtube, and nothing comes up. I'm not sure if anyone has come up with an idea like this, probably due to it being somewhat impossible to play, especially meta-wise.
Even if I have no synergy, if my drawing engine is working well, I won't have to focus my deck on a specific color or card combination or what-have-you for synergy. This Vannifar Deck did the same thing I'm doing, I think.
