Lapse of Certainty
Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put it on top of its owner's library instead of into that player's graveyard.
Lapse of Certainty Discussion

Noire_Samhain, You know,its funny. i have a bunch of Lapse of Certainty a card i feel if its not reprinted, will go up in price in a few years because its one of the few white Counterspells (youre right nobody expects a counter in white.) The funny part is how i obtained them: friggen dollar tree. yes, the dollar tree packs. I was curious and stupid, but maybe not..i actually pulled a Carpet of Flowers in one. so, its not all garbage. Thanks for the suggestions im definitely considering them! especially Benalish Marshal in place of Kwende, Pride of Femeref .

If you really want to throw people off, I can always recommend Mana Tithe , Rebuff the Wicked , and Lapse of Certainty (a card I need to personally seek out). White rarely has instant speed interaction, so being able to effectively counter spells is a good way to catch someone off guard. I don't know how budget your definition of budget is for the deck, but Rebuke and Tithe are ~$3 or less, and Lapse is very cheap.
Kwende really doesn't seem to do enough for any creature but your commander, If you have a Voltron sub-theme like my Tomik deck, that's alright, but only like 3-4 creatures have First Strike in your deck out of 30 total. Some sort of enchantment or creature anthem like Honor of the Pure or Benalish Marshal might be more useful?
Otherwise, I have no other recommendations. Stealing the inclusion of Emergence Zone to put in my mono-white deck, I hadn't thought of including it for surprise Instant-speed plays. +1 from me!

You might want to run Lapse of Certainty , Rebuff the Wicked , and/or Mana Tithe ; and/or protective spells like Dawn Charm , Unbreakable Formation , Selfless Spirit , Rootborn Defenses , Make a Stand , and those that give Protection from a color (I forget their names).
You really don't want to get blown out aftet swapping life but before you can attack.

It's not a matter of power level or flexibility, it's that counterspells are almost always blue. Off the top of my head, the only other exceptions are Mana Tithe , Lapse of Certainty , and Dash Hopes .

I agree with the above comment, your deck needs lots of card draw.
Boros Locket - Budget ramp and draw
Lapse of Certainty - Just fun with sunforger, no1 expects it. Just cute
Magus of the Wheel - Card draw
Wheel of Fortune - Expensive but better card draw
Wheel of Fate - Conditional wheel
Reforge the Soul - Conditional wheel
Scroll Rack - Cute with land tax and wheels.
Regarding your meta choices, keep in mind that adjusting to the meta is always a good and healthy thing. Putting in 1 card because it messes with 1 particular deck is another, not including the potential benefit it can give you. Moreover, MLD, even if it gives basics can still make people mad. Make sure your playgroup is ok with it. Not saying I would be mad, but you never know regarding some people.

Sunforger is so strong with Gwyn that I'd build more heavily around it. Stuff like Tithe to grab Mistveil Plains , Lapse of Certainty , Crackling Doom , Fork , and Chance for Glory come to mind. Toss in a Deserted Temple (to untap Mistveil) and Angel's Grace and you can take infinite turns by looping Grace and Glory. You'd need to fix mana first, but that's easy when you can loop Tithe to grab Sacred Foundry and Godless Shrine.

Nice! Weird damage loops are fun. You might like these: Gideon's Sacrifice , Saving Grace , Frilled Deathspitter , Lapse of Certainty , Gratuitous Violence (with this, if Reckoner has indestructible, he can keep targetting himself and each time the damage multiplies by 2. then when the damage is high enough he can target an opponent to one-shot them), Angrath's Marauders , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Quest for Pure Flame , Heartless Hidetsugu , Selfless Squire , Stonehewer Giant , Open the Armory , Heliod's Pilgrim

@king-saprolingThx for you suggestions!
, but these were replaced, by imo better options or because they tend to draw aggro, or kill my opponents creatures.
- Master Warcraft i think maybe i should give it another chance, though it's a oneshot.
- Masako the Humorless is somewhat antisynegetic, as the deck is more about getting the opponents to beat each other up, rather than doing this myself.
- Godsend as tempting as this card seems in terms of rattlesnake, i think this might be more seen as an offensive tool. Also i'm not really equipmentheavy.
- Lapse of Certainty not really a fan of this one, personel preferance.
- Bloodthirsty Blade is already ordered, still no clue what to cut for it.
