Being able to run Emeria, the Sky Ruin is one of the few perks of mono-white, you should try to increase the number of plains you have to be able to consistently get emeria active. you can prolly just replace these with basics

  • Terrain Generator - you dont really have the card draw to support this
  • Command Tower - effectively just a plains that doesnt count towards emeria, replace with basic
  • Kabira Crossroads - slow tapland that isnt worth its effect, replace with basic
  • Karoo - This land sucks, replace with a basic
  • New Benalia - a one off scry trigger is iffy for the slow land, rely more on repeatable effects like Path of Ancestry
  • Reliquary Tower - I'm not sure mono white has the card draw to justify this slot
  • Roadside Reliquary - colorless sac land for a one off draw can really fuck you over early in the game

Have you considered Revoke Existence? It's a great way to get around the indestructible.

Another card you may want to consider is Scroll of Avacyn for some card draw.

Lands you may want to consider for this deck are Kabira Crossroads, Sandstone Bridge and Scavenger Grounds.

Some other graveyard hate you can put into your deck are Calamity's Wake and Tormod's Crypt.

I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Inventors' Fair easy +1 and tutors for serious engine pieces.

Kabira Crossroads or Radiant Fountain quick +2 in a pinch.

Dust Bowl with that many basic plains is much better than Ghost Quarter/Field of Ruin. Flagstones of Trokair is great ramp with it.

Update!

Out: 1. Akoum Refuge 2. Bloodfell Caves 3. Boros Garrison 4. Kabira Crossroads 5. Orzhov Basilica 6. Rakdos Carnarium 7. Scoured Barrens 8. Wind-Scarred Crag 9. Opal Palace 10. Path of Ancestry 11. Well of Lost Dreams 12. Merciless Eviction 13. Fell the Mighty 14. Blood Baron of Vizkopa

In: 1. Plains x4 2. Mountain x4 3. Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire 4. Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 5. Farewell 6. Toxic Deluge 7. Welcoming Vampire 8. Flawless Maneuver

The land base needed to be refined a bit, so I got rid of anything that comes in tapped and replaced them with basic lands. I also added two legendary lands from Kamigawa, Neon Dynasty.

The board wipes, although decent, were replaced with two that have more flexibility in them - Farewell and Toxic Deluge.

Flawless Maneuver is something I'd like to play test in this deck, so it replaced Well of Lost Dreams since we don't really have a heavy lifegain strategy in this deck (and Necropotence is already in the deck).

Lastly, Blood Baron Vizkopa was replaced with Welcoming Vampire to benefit more off our token strategy with Eminence.

If I may make another couple of observations, I think those cards you should cut instead:

  • Chalice of Life  Flip is not worth the mana investment for such minimal effects.
  • Kabira Crossroads is deceitfully bad, as you will realise that being a turn behind in terms of available mana (especially in mono white) is not worth the 2 extra life, not even in a lifegain deck.
  • Anointed Procession is a powerhouse in a token deck, but in my opinion you do not have that many token-producing effect to make the most out of it, so I feel like often it will end up being a 4CMC do nothing permanent. Unless you experienced otherwise.

First off, love the concept as I have something played with a similar deck but it has diverged a lot from a its original lifegain strategy.

A few things I could suggest with my experience with mono-decks and cats are the following:

  1. Lands - Maybe add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as your devotion to white is going to be pretty high. Another possibility would be Extraplanar Lens as you will likely have a lot of basic plains and that is a good way to increase your mana pool in your situation. Radiant Fountain would be a great replacement for Kabira Crossroads as it does not enter tapped and you should have plenty of other ways of getting mana.

  2. The presence of Emerge Unscathed and Brave the Elements seems odd considering how much better Brave the Elements is.

  3. Ajani's Welcome would fit in nicely considering your heavy focus on gaining life to pump creatures or win.

  4. I would recommend dropping Spirit Mantle for more removal spells. it just seems pretty lackluster.

The last thing I would mention is that protection from a color is handy at times but it does not provide 100% protection. Board wipe spells such as Damnation or similar spells that do not have any particular target ignore protection. With that said, protection still does have its benefits but just keep in mind it is not foolproof.

Ok, here's a little bit of analysis to consider. Break it up into some comments to read. These are opinions based on experience, playing and watching lots of commander content over the years, doesn't account for your specific playstyle or how you have fun playing commander which are certainly as important of decisions, as is card selection.

Topic: Ramp

You are very low in the mana curve, 11 1-drop, 21 2-drop, 15 3-drop, 16 4-drop, and Orzhov () has lots of pips, but mana ramp is critical to getting your plan onboard as quickly as others, having mana available to advance board state/gain advantage and have interaction, and landing your larger threats sooner.

Sol Ring (CMC1 for 2 = +1 mana) is a must include.

Orzhov Signet I personally don't like (CMC3 for 1 = -2 mana) but also you're in which doesn't ramp as it's core strength.

Arcane Signet (CMC2 for 1 = -1 mana) is a must include, there are only a few archetypes I wouldn't play this in and usually only .

Talisman of Hierarchy (CMC2 for 1 = -1 mana) is a must include in .

Dark Ritual (CMC1 for 3 = +2 mana) this allows for explosive turns like a T1 Vampire Nighthawk .

I would start with that at least, some fringe ones I like are: Burnished Hart (creature/recursion), Commander's Sphere (draw), Mycosynth Wellspring (to hand, fringe), Pristine Talisman (lifegain, fringe), Solemn Simulacrum (ramp+draw!), The Birth of Meletis (doesn't help with , but ramp, 0/4 blocker, lifegain? it has it all!), Wayfarer's Bauble (ramp).

On a premise of battlecruiser/low/mid power 3-6 I DO NOT recommend these, but there are stronger options out there beyond 6: Phyrexian Altar (combo builds), Mana Vault , Mana Crypt , Chrome Mox , Smothering Tithe , Land Tax (Might not be bad in this build)

Honestly on a Avg. CMC 2.99 mana curve, I would likely have 10-12 ramp.

Some potential cuts for these:

Gorgon's Head you've got plenty of deathtouch already, it's not pairing with a Viridian Longbow strategy or anything, it's redundant, but also the worst. Easy cut. (We can get to Open the Armory / Steelshaper's Gift later)

Pierce Strider CMC4 for a 3/3 is just plain bad, the idea is play, do 3 damage, block/sac it, noone going to pay 3 to prevent it? but they will because it's going to do 3 anyway on return, and if your using recursion on this, your making the wrong play as it has no value engine on it. Easy cut.

Creeping Chill for CMC4 sorcery is not great, you're not playing a mill strategy so you're not really casting it for free often. It's not a strong play, we can find better ones, like ramping into Athreos, God of Passage sooner.

Font of Return for CMC6? Yikes. (CMC2+CMC4 for 3 creatures to hand is not great, we can get them on the battlefield for that high a CMC).

Angelic Gift hmm we have flyers, with deathtouch, it replaces itself (draw a card) but unless we flickering it ( Ephemerate or Brago, King Enternal something like that, it sets up easy 2-for-1 if an opponent has instand speed removal.

Topic: Lands! (Umm!)

Average Distribution Build: 38 lands

Average Budget Build: 36 lands

Average Expensive Build: 37 lands

Average Aristocrats Build: 35 lands

Average Reanimator Build: 31 lands (closer)

Your Build: 30 lands (Umm!)

No way you can run 30 lands, and 0 ramp in this deck. I wouldn't shuffle this deck with less than 33 lands, probably 34-36 if I'm playing enters tapped/utility lands. I might (maybe not) go to 33 lands with 9+ ramp spells, but even then, 34 would feel better.

Do you have a combo with Piranha Marsh like Worldgorger Dragon does, if not, just delaying yourself for little value (1 damage). Kabira Crossroads in this same bucket, it's just not work the tapped mana.

Reliquary Tower where are the cards coming from? The colorless is a detriment. Unless your playing a draw strategy Necropotence / Greed it will hurt you more than the rare occasion it might help.

Let's be honest, lands SUCK, they are too expensive! Here is a list of lands you should look at:

Lands I suggest: Godless Shrine ($9), Orzhov Basilica (<$1, slow ramp), Caves of Koilos (<$1 must have!), Command Tower (Umm!), Brightclimb Pathway  Flip ($4), Tainted Field (<$1)

Lands I don't suggest: Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse (<$1 fixed color), Scoured Barrens (<$1 fixed color), Isolated Chapel ($6, Not bad but not T1 land), Myriad Landscape (<$1, slow), Temple of Silence (<$1, scry/slow).

Forsaken Sanctuary only ever enters tapped so even Isolated Chapel is better, but there is also Orzhov Guildgate that does this too.

Have to head out, I'll review more topics and recs later, but here are some other cards can come out for mana. Gorgon Flail it's on theme and not bad, but let's get that Basilisk Collar or Quietus Spike instead. Soul Stair Expedition I would rather Animate Dead or Reanimate to the battlefield right away, not have to wait for lands (it still sacrifices itself). Not Forgotten we have better removal. Have to head out now! More later to read. :) If it's too much info, let me know!
