Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

ShadowUmbreon She's worse at drawing cards than Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools and Liliana, Dreadhorde General . She's also worse at making tokens than Tevesh and Elspeth, Sun's Champion . However, her emblem is pretty unique and she's hard to deal with when we have a lot of creatures out. Since we're not really trying to attack people, I don't think the emblem is insane, but it's a wincon. If the rules work for multiple emblems, Teysa is the place where they're most easily obtainable. I'd probably play Tevesh before her, but she's competitive for the 3rd planeswalker slot. If you're a D&D fan or otherwise think she's cooler than Tevesh or Liliana, I'd go ahead and play her. She'll never be bad in any aristocrats deck.

Here is a list of cards that caught my eye.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion creates blockers and wraths big creatures.
Garruk, Cursed Huntsman creates blockers and destroys a creature while drawing you a card.
Ashiok, Nightmare Muse creates a blocker and bounces a creature while disrupting a hand.
Removal: Elspeth Conquers Death is just a good removal piece that returns a creature/planeswalker on the third chapter.

looks like a v solid deck. I'd definitely consider adding the Geist of Saint Traft also definitely the Vendilion Clique you might be able to ditch all 4 of your creatures for 2x of those, and then replace the card draw with Frantic Inventory or Serum Visions something. but everytime I've played against the giest it's been a real strong time-buyer for my opponent. Also the clique is super clutch for getting to run some hand snipes in a U/W control setting, without having to splash black.
Also as far as buying time goes, doesn't get much better than some of the gideon planeswalkers. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is insane, and of the trials is pretty good early pressure as well. I've played with Jace, Architect of Thought before and that card is straight trash let me tell ya
the Mission Briefing IMO fits better in a deck that runs some form of discard, I like splashing these in my B/U control along with Torrential Gearhulk for some graveyard play. You could maybe run Thought Scour and 1-2 Search for Azcanta Flip to get some graveyard pumping going.
Lastly, Elspeth, Sun's Champion is a pretty nice win condition but you could also go for some of those big 10 drop blue creatures (kind of like Thing in the Ice Flip you have sideboarded) or something like Shark Typhoon
oh also Day of Judgment pretty solid in white control decks.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos ... Bro-maz Soldier token swarms!!!
Mobilization , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Elspeth Tirel ..... Rhox Pikemaster , Field Marshal and Captain of the Watch and Veteran Armorsmith / Veteran Swordsmith and Crusade / Honor of the Pure .
There is a ton of fun and cheap support.

Ataraxey There are four dedicated board wipes ( Cyclonic Rift , Ruinous Ultimatum , In Garruk's Wake , Elspeth, Sun's Champion .). For targeted removal I run the following: Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker , Garruk, Apex Predator , Valki, God of Lies Flip(Tibalt side), Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , and as a last resort Cyclonic Rift .
These have been sufficient for most games I've played. I tend to be in slower playgroups that don't combo off on turn 2 or 3. But I'd be happy to include more if you have some suggestions on what to remove for them.

Preeminent Captain is a strong soldier staple since it can get in big threats like Captain of the Watch early. Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be one of those threats seeing as you have so much first strike and vigilance naturally. That could free up slots since he'd make Archetype of Courage and Brave the Sands potentially redundant. If you do go that route, some useful inclusions might be Aerial Responder , Fencing Ace , Adanto Vanguard , and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip. Otherwise, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a very efficient soldier, if a bit pricey, with some degree of lore connection to Elspeth. Finally, I'd probably include at least a singleton copy of Sunlit Hoplite for your walker to grab. It's not a remarkable creature, but then, Elspeth, Undaunted Hero isn't a remarkable planeswalker when compared to Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion . You may as well at least have the flexibility of recurring a Hoplite when your board state has been diminished and you don't have the luxury of going for the ultimate.

Your mana doesn't work for Counterspell . I'd include 4x Shivan Reef (cut 3 mountain 1 island). I'd also cut 3 swamp 1 island for 4 River of Tears . Obviously there's better lands, but I'm suggesting based on a low budget.
I'm assuming since you're playing casual, you can afford the taplands in Crumbling Necropolis . If your friends are running taplands as well, they're the absolute best thing in that slot.
Beyond that, Interplanar Beacon is . . . fine. I wouldn't run it in 3 color, honestly.
Also, Sarkhan the Masterless is the single best win con for a superfriends list. Actually, I used it alongside Elspeth, Sun's Champion in a deck as a one of to tutor with Fae of Wishes . I did have a few walkers, but that was mostly because it was a Oath of Nissa Narset, Parter of Veils deck.

another thought is the queen of tokens herself Elspeth, Sun's Champion .
