So I found this on the worlds best source, reddit. "The only ones I found that allow you to flicker your own lands are Teferi's Time Twist and Oath of Teferi . So for the low price of 2 mana and a card, you can now turn Akoum Teeth into Akoum Warrior  Flip, a red 4/5 creature with trample and a +1/+1 counter from Teferi's Time Twist." So yes, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling could flicker Valki, God of Lies  Flip into the other side. You would also be able to choose an option with Charming Prince .

I forgot to mention this, but does a card like Charming Prince also work.

I've typically seen Orvar decks in U/R. This build is interesting, but there are some flaws both on the macro and micro level.

In the bigger picture, you don't really have a way to win the game. Ideally in an Orvar deck, you have a few creatures that work well when copied (in U/R this would be your Goldspan Dragon s and Sprite Dragon s), but there's not really anything like that here. At least, nothing that ends the game. I think the best possibility for that would be Elder Gargaroth , because if that gets copied it's basically game over.

On the smaller level, let's look at individual card choices. Selfless Savior can easily be replaced with protection spells like Shell Shield or Sejiri Shelter  Flip, which also fit the theme of targeting spells. Sea Gate Stormcaller doesn't actually work particularly well with the deck. Orvar won't trigger from the copy it makes, and you're copying pretty low-value spells in general. You have Professor of Symbology here, but no sideboard to learn from. Even if you do get some lessons, she's still not the greatest value and has little/no synergy with the deck. Charming Prince is generally a decent value card, but again, there's not really much synergy here. You don't want to be copying things with Orvar just for minor ETB value.

I think some better cards to copy with Orvar are big creatures like the aforementioned Elder Gargaroth or something that also benefits from being targeted/buffed. Maybe the new magecraft mechanic can help. Clever Lumimancer , Leonin Lightscribe , or especially Quandrix Pledgemage are all good creatures for that reason. All of these are also good independent of Orvar, though he does make them much better.

Don't know how well it'll hold up in the metagame - modern hasn't been my jam for a while, but Pyre of Heroes ?

Lets you grab thalia, run stuff like Charming Prince or Containment Priest and Drannith Magistrate as 1-ofs and free up sideboard slots?

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.

Then i would like to ask you, how the Skyclave Apparition & Charming Prince combination is played, and why you decided to put it in your deck.

Thank you!

@ Gloglok

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.

Hey Drcfan,

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.

  • I have taken out the Giver of Runes + Ranger-Captain of Eos as I find them kinda clunky to play or at least I don't like them as much.

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 :)
