Oath of the White Orchid 1WW


For each opponent who controls more lands than you, you may search your search your library for a Plains card and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library afterwards. Then you may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield.

This is some where between Knight of the White Orchid, Land Tax and Cultivate. Its power level varies massively depending on turn order, but it can be anywhere from "play an additional land" and "search for three lands and put one of them onto the battlefield".

Damn ninjas...

Quilphin, thanks for the recommendations. I have to update this list but I've actually been running Smothering Tithe because it's just good, and Land Tax with Scroll Rack, Skullclamp and some token support to add draw power but it has been inconsistent. I'll definitely try slotting the wheels in.

This is a good start. Good number of boardwipes and removal.

Not knowing your desired budget, power level or intended way to win, I am limited in how I can help.

For now, I'll keep things budget, and mostly suggest cards from the two most important categories in EDH, Card Draw and Ramp.

Ramp: With the curve you have currently, you'll need more. We will also attempt to lower the curve while cutting.

And as she starts to build more decks and play more, a greater emphasis on 2cmc mana rocks over everything else will hopefully flourish.

Draw: Here's where you're really struggling.

Adding a bunch of these will let her have a way better time. More cards in hand = more fun.


  • Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero solid protection piece. Consider him as the commander.
  • Boros Charm another protection piece, with utility.
  • Extra combat effects.
  • Lower the CMC of your boardwipes.
  • Try to lower the CMC over all.

Cuts to consider:

  • Basandra, Battle Seraph
  • Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh
  • Dawnbreak Reclaimer
  • Fiendslayer Paladin
  • Hunted Dragon
  • Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
  • Phyrexian Soulgorger
  • Leyline of Combustion
  • Browbeat
  • Victory's Herald

Hope some of this helps!

If you can afford to get a Scroll Rack get one. Land Tax + Scroll Rack is outstanding! Plus they are both really solid cards on their own

For all the negative things I say about mono white, you built this commander well. Hedron Archive addressed both ramp and card draw which you need in the deck.

Kor Haven and Cavern of Souls are both good inclusions

Scroll Rack - To help you dig and very strong synergy with Land Tax.

I see that flash and felidar sovergn. You sneaky, I like!

so, after rigorous playtesting, I have come up with some cards to cut and add that will hopefully msk the deck better:


  • Alabaster Kirin This does absolutely nothing, has no prison effects, and is kinda useless here

  • Baird, Steward of Argive His prison effect is okay, but you can definitely slot in better options for not too much more money

  • Knight of Sursi Once again, just a vanilla card that doesn't do anything except get a small body on the battlefield, which isnt very good in commander, even if it is indestructible

  • Misthoof Kirin Only really okay in a morph deck, this is kinda useless here

  • Oreskos Explorer just a worse Land Tax

  • Segovian Angel a 1/1 with vigilance has to swing 120 times to win. just a terrible card all around.

  • Silver Knight Kinda bad, doesn't really do much .

  • Shepherd of the Lost this would be good if it have every other creature it's abilities, but alas, it's kinda terrible, especially because I'm smelling a voltron sub-theme around Avacyn

  • White Knight Unless your in a very black heavy meta, this is just bad, and is barley passable even if you have said meta

  • Journey to Nowhere a worse Pacifism

  • All your lands except basic plains. You need more utility lands, not just non-basics that do nothing

  • Wing Shards This one is debatable, although I don't see you casting a bunch of spells and having the mana to cast this, due to the lack of ramp you have.

  • Armillary Sphere bad ramp

  • Traveler's Amulet bad ramp

  • Orazca Relic have fun waiting 5 turns to get blessing and then only drawing one card

  • Take Vengeance crappy removal

  • Bishop of Wings I don't see this deck supporting an angel tribal

Potential Add-Ins

Thanks so much for reading my list, and I hope this has been some help to you. My main problem with this deck was it ran too much inefficient removal and bad creatures, but once these are added in, I think the deck should be a lot for mean. Have a great day! =)

@vediusmaps - that's an awesome idea! I never knew that card exist! Will definitely include it in the next major update of the deck.. Thanks for the suggestion!

@hamdeadly - yeah, i have been pondering on adding 1 more land, but I can't seem to find which card to replace it with.. Should I have more budget, I might include Land Tax .. thanks!
