Danitha Capashen, Paragon Discussion

Hey, good start on a budget version of Tuvasa.
Some budget cards to consider adding:
- Fertile Ground : mana.
- Setessan Champion : enchantress.
- Vanishing : protection for Tuvasa and auras she has.
- Overgrowth : mana.
- Verduran Enchantress enchantress.
- Wolfwillow Haven : mana.
- Stony Silence : opponent artifact disruption.
- Shielding Plax : hexproof for Tuvasa.
- Duelist's Heritage : double strike.
- Favor of the Overbeing : flying and vigilance.
- Stubborn Denial
- Open the Vaults : reanimate all enchantments.
- Seal of Primordium
- Kenrith's Transformation
- Archon of Sun's Grace
- Destiny Spinner
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Azorius Signet
- Lightning Greaves
- Selesnya Signet
- Simic Signet
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Chromatic Lantern
- Arcane Signet
- Reclamation Sage
- Llanowar Elves
- Danitha Capashen, Paragon
- Transcendent Envoy
- Herald of the Pantheon
- Starfield Mystic
- Kestia, the Cultivator
- Sun Titan
- Creeping Renaissance
Consider more enchantments, less mana rocks and creatures? Adding more land auras as well as more enchantresses could replace mana rocks, Sol Ring is the exception. With only Sol then Stony Silence could disrupt your opponents artifacts. More advice for cuts is to streamline the creature base. Use the other creature spots to add more enchantments.
Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Herald of the Pantheon , Starfield Mystic and Transcendent Envoy could be cut for more low CMC enchantments since you have more low CMC enchantments then higher CMC ones which makes these cost reducers subpar. To replace Greaves and Boots for protection for Tuvasa instead use some auras. Vanishing can be repeatable protection for Tuvasa and all auras on her from removal even board wipes. When Tuvasa phases out all the auras she has also phase out. When she phases in at your next untap step all the auras also come back still with her.
Good luck with your deck.

If you can afford it, I highly recommend Knight Exemplar for almost any knight deck. It makes even the smallest squires obnoxiously difficult to deal with, especially if you can get two copies in play. When I ran it in mono-white knights way back when, I found that I'd sometimes get into big board stalls, but Curry Favor on Smitten Swordmaster is a great way to win from such a position. You could also just try to go even wider with more Worthy Knight , History of Benalia , Call the Bloodline , Hero of Bladehold , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , The Circle of Loyalty , or some combination thereof. With enough knights in the deck, I'd want the full 4 of Tournament Grounds and possibly some Unclaimed Territory / Cavern of Souls if your pockets are deep. If I was cutting something, I think I'd start with the Basri planeswalker deck package. With the possible exception of the Lieutenant, those cards are just not that efficient.
As an aside, I love the cheeky combo with Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Colossus Hammer . It's probably too narrow to be effective right now, but I can totally see a world where that dream becomes a reality. Big dumb equipment like Helm of the Host , Moonsilver Spear , and Godsend supported by knights with equip synergy like Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Puresteel Paladin , Armored Skyhunter , Balan, Wandering Knight , and maybe even a Kinsbaile Cavalier for maximum overkill.

I see the deck doesn't look much like it did before. 2.4 advantage cmc is definitely decent. I would like to start by saying I'm really glad to see some staple tutors in your list, i know you were initially against them but a little consistency in your 99 card deck doesn't hurt. So I noticed you don't run any mana rocks, which i think is a bit of a mistake. Mana rocks help you power up by getting with equip costs when you don't have a better way of getting them onto your commander automatically. Sol Ring , Talisman of Conviction , Boros Signet , Mind Stone and especially Thought Vessel would be good includes to make sure you're able to ramp those equipment onto your commander. On that note Danitha Capashen, Paragon while not as good as stoneforge or puresteel, is very decent at reducing those pesky equip costs. Also, Spirit Mantle is unblockable and lets you draw a card. Other than that you may want to think about removal: Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , Generous Gift , and/or Chaos Warp are good answers. I'd also think about utilizing Sunforger because it can fetch any if your answer cards. I know most of these suggestions aren't really the "fun" cards to run, but it'll keep you in the game more often than not and help you stop your opponents from going off via combo kill.
I'd cut trusty retriever because if you need either of those effects then there's lower cmc cards that you could do that with. Blood mist good card, but it's not an aura or an equipment so even though it's a neat effect I wouldn't run it. Metalworker probably does pretty decent with all your card draw, but it's giving away a lot of information for a deck that's trying to win through combat. Sculpting steel, I've never really liked how this card ends up working, our not working in most cases lol. Thespian's stage, you're going to spend too much time and resources on it getting it set up for the pay off to be good enough. Spectral steel doesn't give enough of a boost and the graveyard ability it's really worth it either. Idyllic tutor I can appreciate the fact that you're running tutors, but you're leaning into the equipments and only running the cream of the crop of auras... So spending 3 mana to search for an enchantment isn't ideal. Kor cartographer is too much mana to only get 1 plains, if you really want that effect you could get Solemn Simulacrum so that you could search for a mountain if you really need to. Encroaching wastes I'm not a fan of land destruction, especially eye for an eye types, especially if you have to pay 4 and lose a land to do it. Sword of body and mind good protections, but the 2/2 wolf is not great and the mill can be actively bad against graveyard decks, especially when you don't have graveyard hate. Knight of the white orchid i love this creature, but it's limited possible land fetch that doesn't do much else, I'd suggest Keeper of the Accord because it's repeatable. Disenchant I'd suggest running Heliod's Intervention because it's more flexible and can be used for life gain if needed.
Besides that it's looking sharp, you've got some serious power in this deck. I really like wyleth and i think it's a very fun and powerful deck. Wyleth is an engine and a win condition in one, which is very hard to find. Again, don't take my suggestions as criticisms, it's just what i would do if it were my deck (honestly I'd trade that metalworker for a Mana Crypt , Teferi's Protection , and a Smothering Tithe lol)

Removals • Bioessence Hydra - Expensive for the cost and really only can pop if you’re out with a ton of planeswalkers. - Doesn’t truly allow to combo off or put yourself further in a win position • Vryn Wingmare - Just ok. Could levy into stronger creatures. • Martial Coup - An ok board wipe but there’s better ones out there. • Altar of Dementia - Not valid as sacrifice doesn't proc with totem armor • Really Good spread of Lands. Quick pace and some very solid duals that keep up your pace • Dovin Baan - Does not help advance your enchantment Mill objective. • Dovin, Hand of Control - Not great in commander as you have to activate it on your turn • Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner - You’re not hitting with large creatures. Mill is your objective with a subtheme of enchanted/totem creatures • Finest Hour - You’re milling, not attacking. You already should be having fliers anyway.
Suggestions: • Common theme that the deck needs to be built from a behind position. You have an easy commander to keep some BRUTAL pieces alive and well.
• Many of your creatures do not utilize tapping effects (which should be your goal with the commander).
• Will need some life gain enchantments to stay in the game
• Creatures that tap for mana and have totem armor. Easy ramp - Karametra's Acolyte
• More instant or sorcery spells that actually can mill an opponent - Maddening Cacophony
• Absolutely need some mana rocks

I'm fairly new to building land hate decks. The land destruction suggestions are very helpful.
I have a mono-white equipment deck that runs Sram, Senior Edificer, Danitha Capashen, Paragon, and Puresteel Paladin. Great cards, but I only have one copy of each for now. May work them in eventually. Trying to keep the decks from becoming too similar at the same time though.
Thanks again for taking the time to comment!
