Gary is way to slow for modern, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord zips a great way to cheat out your larger creatures and very quickly. With the devotion this has I’d highly 1 or 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, it’ll help with extra mana needed for the malakir kicker and highborn extra pop. Inquisition and seize are crazy good right so 4 of is highly recommend. Use is just eh right now unless you have a sac engine to take full advantage, tho all the fetches could help get it online reliably.

Interesting build.

Icbrgr Thank you for your comment.

This was the intention. With a lucky starting hand this thing can be explosive af.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be great… but is that expensive and unfortunately i don‘t own a copy.

Nyx Lotus instead could be an option. But what dies not cut for it?

I already hesitate with Altar of the Pantheon, which makes gods to creatures a little bit earlier.

I love the flavor of this deck... it looks like just such a blast to play!...the only thing I can think of would maybe be Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Nyx Lotus?

Also, if you are mono-white, adding in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be a great way to potentially get a significant amount of mana to cast those big angel spells sooner given your potential devotion to white.

I saw that you're trying to keep this on a budget, so absolutely ignore as much of this as necessary.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Suture Priest, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Phyrexian Tower, Altar of Dementia, Phyrexian Altar, Pawn of Ulamog, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Nether Traitor, Ravenous Chupacabra, Brought Back, Tragic Slip

There's really a lot you can do, so I will leave it here for now.

No matter what you decide to do, I highly recommend cutting Temple of the False God and replacing it with almost any other land, even just another basic. That card is a dead land for the first 4 turns of the game and I personally feel that it's more productive to have something more reliable.

Unless I'm missing something about how this deck is supposed to play, you're running way too many lands here. Your typical commander deck has probably between 34-40 lands. My Lord Windgrace landfall deck (in which the lands are extremely important) only runs 42. The upside of this fact though is that it takes away some of what is the most painful part of tweaking my decks: deciding what to cut. You need to cut a bunch of forests. Also, I'm not sure why you're running Mirror Gallery. It doesn't look like you're trying to copy any legendaries

You could probably consider swapping one of them out for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. This is a great mono-colored commander land.

Getting a bunch of extra land drops in a turn is great with stuff like Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Exploration, but unless you're able to draw extra cards to replace those lands, you're just gonna wind up with an empty hand and hoping for something good from your top deck. Cultivator Colossus is a great way to dump some lands onto the battlefield and keep your hand full in doing so.

Cultivate is a great way to dig some lands out of your library, and there's other good spells that do similar things. Harrow, Kodama's Reach, Three Visits, and Nature's Lore among others can help you ramp up and thin lands out of your library. You may want to include some more of these types of spells.

Personally, I like to include some redundant effects along with my commander. Omnath can help you pile up mana, sure, but you'll lose it all if he gets zapped. Horizon Stone can help hedge your bets in case something happens to your commander.

There's lots of Nissa planeswalkers that interact nicely with your lands, most notably Nissa, Who Shakes the World. You should definitely look into some of those.

Lastly, given what Omnath can do and since you're clearly looking to produce absurd amounts of mana, it kinda looks like you're lacking a real payoff for all that production/retention. You need some outlets into which to sink all that mana so that you can close out the game. Finale of Devastation is a pretty popular one in these types of decks. You might also want to consider Helix Pinnacle as a surprise alternate win-con if you're sitting on a pile of 100 or more mana. Not to mention, being mono-green, there's tons of enormous and expensive creatures with devastating effects (I'm looking at you, Craterhoof Behemoth) you can run as well.

I hope this is helpful, I'd say you've probably got about 20 slots to replace forests with stuff that's more fun than basic lands. You say this is your first EDH deck, so in case you were unaware, EDHREC is a great resource for ideas while brewing your decks. Good luck!

Metroid_Hybrid - I know you said you had not updated this in years meaning you likley do not care to much about it any more but just two other thoughts. I noted you are mono white, if you stay with pure white may be worth adding in a few copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. If you wanted to be frisky, you could add a splash of red for Fervent Champion. He sticks to your human knight theme, has first strike to hit off Kwende, could attach any of the equipment you are running for free, and more!

Looks close. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Cabal Coffers, and more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth are great in mono B Devotion.


Rotting Regisaur is a nice 3MV creature in place of Mardu Outrider. I personally like Ayara, First of Locthwain for a creature, although Liliana of the Veil is probably the right card for the 3MV slot.
Liliana, Waker of the Dead or Gravelighter could be a budget option.
