partana3 on Yosei, a Good Mono-White EDH Deck [PRIMER]

Pretty cool deck! Check out my mono-white deck Exodus. It is a good-stuff deck which is built around Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, which eventually wins with Auriok Salvagers + Lion's Eye Diamond or Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista (this is less common). I just have a quick question. What do you think about board-wipes. If you chose to exclude them, then how do you deal with massive board states? :)

Small Updates: Out - Ranger's Path, 1xForest, Llanowar Reborn

In - Fyndhorn Elves, Arbor Elf, Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth

This is just trimming and making some of the draws smoother. Ranger's Path was okay but slow. This deck really wants to be on 3/4 mana a turn early so taking out one land (we were flooding a bit so I'll keep my on on this) and a spell for two 1 mana dorks is a good call. This also helps us with things like Augur of Autumn and other effects that care about hitting permanents and creatures. Yavimaya over llanowar reborn also makes sense, there's only 1 creature that synergizes with the +1/+1 counter and it's far from keeping it's spot in the deck. Also with the inclusion of Yavimaya, our other non-forests become forests so you can do things like untapping Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx with Arbor Elf which is cute and pretty good. Also helps make sure Vernal Bloom a little better.

The closest thing (which is not in your budget) is Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, maybe - but 10 mana in modern should basically win you the game on the spot, if you want to be on-curve. By comparison, you could be paying full-price for Omniscience, almost any tron payoff, etc.

As for budget, I can't think of anything outside of tron for colorless.

The card slaps so hard in my Ashaya, Soul of the Wild deck. It allows me to untap Gaea's Cradle and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx with all of my planeswalkers and creatures.

     DawnsRayofLight: Thank you, great suggestions!

     I am running Counterspell, so I'm not quite sure what you mean about running Stoic Rebuttal over it. I've considered cutting SR a few times for Negate, but I always end up deciding against it, as it's nearly always another Counterspell. This slot is more likely to become Disallow and eventually Force of Will. =)

     Absolutely love AEtherize! Used it a lot in standard back in the RTR block; I should definitely find a home for it here! I think I'll definitely consider Aetherspouts as well. Propaganda is really good with the land control, but I always feel like without running a whole Pillow Fort package, it's an enchantment I can't tap for mana. Same kind of feelings for Dissipation Field, despite the strength of the card.

     Manascape Refractor is an awesome suggestion that I hadn't considered! Definitely going to look to make room for it. Field and Vale, though, I feel would just slow me down more than they would be beneficial in the face of some of my stax effects. I'd be more inclined to add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx back into the deck, I think.

     This deck honestly doesn't need more win-more cards. I used to have it very full of big value creatures like Darksteel Colossus and Sphinx of the Second Sun that I could turn up with Urza's active, which was fine - but I'd frequently find myself stuck with too many in my early hand, and was way more susceptible to being mana-screwed. At this point I'm down to one big fatty in Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. All that being said, I am planning to eventually cut God-Pharaoh's Statue for Blightsteel Colossus haha. =P

     Metalworker would be a great pickup too, but I'd definitely be more inclined to trade for than buy, and finding someone willing to trade one is easier said than done lol

     Thanks again! =)

Interesting to not see any Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in a devotion deck. Other than that, pretty solid use of my boy Gary

So, on the subject of a monoblack land base...Let's see...

4-8 fetches. As long as it can fetch a basic swamp it's fine.

6 swamps

4 Castle Locthwain

4 Mutavault

2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

if you can fit them, 1 Cabal Coffers 1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is ok if you can fit it.

total 23 lands is the sweet spot for your curve. Maybe 22 because Sorin can mitigate the costs of 4-5 mana vamps.

Speaking of Sorin, if you JUST want a really beefy vampire to drop with him the answer is Chancellor of the Dross. I really prefer Champion though.

Cavern of Souls is nice to have here just as mainboard blue hate, but it's not necessary. I run 2 because I own them irl.
