I'm personally a big fan of Steel Hellkite . Solid removal in EDH. Sure you run into it dying to removal or being countered or whatever, but honestly the threat of removal is real for all permanents. I don't play a game with the mindset of fear; I play the game to have fun. And besides, not every single opponent runs plenty of removal, and not every single opponent immediately has said removal at their disposal.
Argentum Armor is super based, if you can get it out. Works wonders in ramp decks.
Caged Sun is great for ramp, especially in mono-white.
Contagion Engine , but it requires a lot of setup to get true value out of.
Eternity Vessel is super based in mono-white. Run the full gambit of fetch lands and crack them when you're life total is too low. Use in response to it's inevitable removal for some last-second value.
God-Pharaoh's Statue will shut down combo and tempo players in their tracks.
Gonti's Aether Heart can land you infinite turns if you set it up right. You need to Ensoul it, then you want to clone it. You can use Spork Double (misspelled on purpose lol), Sakashima of a Thousand Faces , Mirror Gallery , Sakashima the Impostor or some other spells to do so. Once you're online, do something such as Followed Footsteps , Progenitor Mimic , Rite of Replication . If you're using Progenitor Mimic , you're already in green. So use token-doubling effects such as Doubling Season . You can even bypass all of this for Mechanized Production and Mirror Gallery . Regardless, once you're online you'll be able to exile one and take an extra turn, make another at the beginning of your upkeep and kick off another one. Boom, infinite extra turns. But again, lots of setup.
But I think, of everything, my pick is Mindslaver .
Hold up the mana and use it as the nuclear option. Nobody wants to mess with the man (or woman) who has their finger on the detonator.

I have a few suggestions that I forgot to put in the previous comment:
If you’re curious about eternity vessel magic defines life gain and life loss as the difference between one life total change to another so it would actually trigger Vito

qwikster I tried out Eternity Vessel for a few months in an older build a year and a half ago and in practice, it's too expensive to want to cast on your turn and there is always a better option in hand anyway. If you DO cast it, then that's basically your whole turn using your mana on an artifact that isn't going to do much when it comes out for another turn. It's just not worth it IMO and we have plenty of ways to gain life.
Zolt I know of the synergy Angel's Grace has with Ad Nauseam, but we honestly don't need it. Most cards are cmc 3 or under which means we can keep the ad nauseam train going pretty deep as is while being able to sac Children of Korlis or have an Ivory Tower ready to recoup life right after. If I were to turn this into a CEDH deck, I would include it to halt game winning combos early on, but I want to maintain this just under CEDH as much as possible. I'd rather have it's slot open for another card.

No, the counter ability on Eternity Vessel is a replacement effect, not a triggered ability. You can tell because triggered abilities always start with "when", "whenever", or "at". The landfall ability is a triggered ability fwiw.

So I came across a card that I think would work with Yarok but I’m still unsure.
It’s the condition with the life total I’m not sure about. When Eternity Vessel ETB would it get double the counters?

Khalni Heart Expedition is great in a landfall deck, since it enables instant speed landdrops, while being way cheaper than most fetch lands. Instant blockers with Omnath, Locus of Rage, instant speed stealing with Roil Elemental, instant carddraw with Tatyova, Benthic Druid, the possibilities are endless. Especially with Eternity Vessel it's a great way to not die by damage :D
