One of the most important part of deck building is making your deck consistent.

Pick a few great creatures like Healer's Hawk and Ajani's Pridemate and put 4 of them in your deck.

Leonin Vanguard is a great choice until rotation. Ajani's Welcome is a good easy left gain enabler.

Ajani, Strength of the Pride is a good planeswalker. Gideon Blackblade is another good planeswalker.

Put in some removal such as Prison Realm or Mortify

Just pick a few good creatures/spells/planeswalkers and grind for those.

I would stick to standard, modern is a very quick inaccessible format at the moment. The game is too quick for this deck approach, sorry. I do like the deck for standard though and i would keep it like that.

i think you could make this deck more competative if you ditched:

4x Ethereal Absolution 3x Open the Graves 1x Helm of the Host

they are quite slow and and you already have divine visitation making you vulnerable to amounts of enchantment and artifact hate.

Then by adding some very aggressive 3 drops : History of Benalia , Resplendent Angel Gideon Blackblade .

this is important because why you are setting up your divine visitation they have other problems to worry about.

Hey, looks good nice Extraplanar Lens :)

Consider more lands? 29 lands is low for a 3.6 avg. CMC. This low amount of lands also needs a low avg. CMC, not more than 2.0 which will be difficult to achieve unless you cut a large amount of high CMC cards. Consider 36 lands?

Consider more flying? Flying is evasion that you want to be able to consistently with Odric give all your creatures including Odric to do Commander damage.

Odric can give your creatures indestructible which is powerful from sources such as Gideon Blackblade or Bastion Protector . Precinct Captain , Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are creatures who can be repeatable sources of tokens. Legion's Landing  Flip and Adanto, the First Fort is a good land with token strategies. Hour of Revelation is a powerful board wipe for mono white in multiplayer Commander.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angelic Chorus
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Mass Calcify
  • Angel of Glory's Rise
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Skyspear Cavalry
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Dictate of Heliod
  • Norn's Annex
  • Ajani's Welcome
  • High Ground
  • Solemn Offering
  • Deploy to the Front
  • Sword of the Animist
  • Chitinous Cloak
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Riot Control
  • War Report
  • Hopeful Eidolon

Ok, so after playing with this for a bit I have made the following modifications. Removed 2x Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , 3x Disfigure 1x Mountain . Added 4x Knight of the Ebon Legion , 2x Shock and swapped 2x Plains for 2x Isolated Chapel in the mana base to compensate for the earlier black requirement. This was always meant to be an aggro deck to prey on the likes of Wilderness Reclamation so more one drops to start beating earlier seems natural. Disfigure might be a better choice than Shock for its combat trick potential but the added reach and ability to pick off low loyalty plainswalkers have swayed me towards the latter for now.

I have also removed Gideon Blackblade and Mortify from the side board, these were meant to help in the control match-up but I found you don't need them with the speed this deck can kill. I replaced them with a fourth Tocatli Honor Guard and Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded to help against Sulti Dreadhorde matches which I see as the worst match-up and potentially be good in the mono-red match-up.

Taking out Tomik at least from the maindeck is a good idea indeed. I will try Gideon Blackblade as well. Thanks a lot!

Here's what I've been playing for Mono-White: Mono White Aggro Feel free to use anything I have here.

I probably wouldn't keep Tomik in the mainboard as he is just a 2\3 flyer with a ability that isn't really relevant in the current meta. I would take out at least one Tomik and add another Legion's Landing  Flip. Or you can take both out and add a Legion's Landing  Flip and another History of Benalia . I would also have Gideon Blackblade instead of Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants as it helps with being more aggressive, and can exile anything on the board.

Hope this helps!

multimedia I agree that Gideon Blackblade is better than the one I have at the moment so I went ahead and swamped them. As Akroma's Memorial , I honestly have it in there because I already have a copy but I'll just have to find a new home for it. I also took out Mass Calcify , Deploy to the Front (to help with the cmc), and Spear of Heliod . I want to keep Helm of the Host if I can to satisfy my Johnny tendencies xD. So I added a little equipment with Stoneforge Mystic , Sigarda's Aid , Kor Outfitter , and Hammer of Nazahn . I'm also thinking of adding Puresteel Paladin but I'm not sure if I have enough artifacts to justify it. Maybe swap Spear back in for Honor of the Pure
