Serrated Arrows and Icatian Javelineers are good cards against aggro decks that also have good synergies with blink effects

What the guys above suggest is 100 percent great advice - however, keep in mind Balance is cool as long as you just run one...some groups may get salty if you run four..

I would also add:

2 - 3 Crusades to buff your little guys, playsets of Savannah Lions, Order of Leitbur, Icatian Javelineers and an Armageddon or two so you can slow down other decks that rely on more mana - just make sure you have a Plains or two in hand when you cast it so you aren't slowed down.

Looking through your stuff I think you could take out Devout Witness and Icatian Javelineers. Javelineers I don't think does enough and Witness costs a lot to destroy an enchantment. Considering most enchantments in PDH are auras, if you think you need more enchantment removal, you would probably be better off adding another piece of creature removal or more cards that grant protection to bounce the auras off.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of the designs. Here are some notes:

  • Having the peanuts design buff elephants, but not designing any elephants to go with it is a mistake of lack of cohesiveness. Otherwise, a fine card.

  • Fire eating does not represent flavorfully what fire eating is IRL - people are not making living bombs out of themselves. Should probably be rakdos colored.

  • Three rings is confusing on first and second read and gets super confusing if one or more of the three permanents goes away.

  • Magician is the best design, but certainly not an uncommon with that text box.

  • Circus Tent is a bit weird, but it works. Probably should be rare rarity to fit within the challenge and its design, but otherwise ok.

  • Feats of strength is a bit confusing, probably not rare as noted and a bit of a letdown at that mana cost and rarity. It is a Crash the Ramparts, a 23rd card in IXL limited, with minor upside, so unless your deck features Wild Onslaught as well, I think it is a pretty bad card, power-level wise.

  • Knife thrower does feel quite Rakdos too, undeservant of its mythic rarity, being an Icatian Javelineers with a better body. Also, after reading the design excerpt, being a literal filler in the holes of the design challenge is not a good place to be.

  • Ringmaster is quite alright - a decent commander, average to good draft pick that could be superb in the right deck, with limited constructed applications... wait. His effect is permanent? Well, that is a design oversight for sure.

Overall, if I was an average judge, I will have to say that half of your designs are not particularly good, while all of them suffer from being undercooked.

A problem for monowhite decks is cardadvantage (no real draw-spells), and mana dumping (it's hard to find any real good ones). But both of the lands I suggested soak up a bit of mana and give you more cards, so they would prolly be helpful.

I saw another monowhite deck recently, where the guy who made it swore by curving out at 5 cmc with 2 Angel of Invention. It actually looked pretty good. As he pointed out, the punch from his whole team being pumped was quite a game-ender, but he did have Aether Vial and probably went for vialing the fatty-angel in during opponents end step.

A one-drop that can be devastating in some metas (and almost irrelevant in others): Icatian Javelineers. Just point it at the first Noble Hierarch you see and let fly.

zephyr_chang, Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant are in my opinion cards for a very diffrent deck. They bring Human-based benefits, and I want to be flixible with what rase soldiers I can bring in. Plus, we already have a myriad of Human decks, I wanted mine to offer a diffrent feeling than the other (decks). As for Brave the Elements I don't feel the necessity of alpha-strike capability. The deck runs a lot of First Strikers, so the creatures are alraedy evasive.
ZorrosRage, Boros Elite is a fair contendor for the 1 drop slot, although I like the utility that Soldier of the Pantheon and Icatian Javelineers bring with themselves. Torpor Orb on a creature was good in U/R Twin and Melira Combo Pod meta, now it's not really necessary, especially when having a plethora of hate enchantments on the decks disposal post-board.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I appreciate all of them.

White weenie! Back in 2001 or so I ran a 60ish card deck with cards like Icatian Javelineers, Abu Ja'far, White Knight and Glorious Anthem(spent my lunch money on them). It was terrible but we all were back then.

I like the deck! How about Doomed Traveler? It creates flying tokens when put into the graveyard, which can be hard to deal with. Soul Warden is a cheap creature that adds life, could replace Icatian Javelineers. +1 Upvote from me!
