I just gotta respond to that last comment otherwise i'll feel rude.

For the majority of my time playing mono-red, i was playing mono-red artifacts, which, admittedly might not the best way to play red. Red artifacts generally work off cheating them in out of the graveyard. Impulse draw in mono-red artifacts is a double edged sword which is why i didn't consider it as weighing as heavily as you do. It's especially risky near the start of the game when i need the draw most. "Amazing, i have exiled my Darksteel Forge and i can play it this turn but i only have 7 untapped mana, so now I've lost it for the rest of this game." Granted, as the game goes on, it becomes a lot better.

Looting/rummaging doesn't give card advantage and can have the same drawbacks as impulse in mono-red artifacts. The commander i mentioned, daretti, he enables rummaging. However, it sucks to do that with him in the situation i described above where people were running a lot of yard hate and i specifically wanted to pitch artifacts into my yard to cheat them out.

And white doesn't just have cantrips. Inspiring Commander, Mesa Enchantress, Losheel, Clockwork Scholar, Welcoming Vampire and Sram, Senior Edificer will double the value of white cantrips. Some only once a turn, but that's still better than nothing. Sage's Reverie can be amazing if youre playing around enchantments.

I might have been overvaluing spot removal a little, since it was one thing i didn't have much access to. I also was undervaluing red's ability to win before removal becomes that relevant. The commander i played the majority of the mono-red with certainly did no favors there.

It seems to me like that other guy who brought up how white doesn't have the greatest commanders is onto something there. That's an explanation which makes more sense than anything else. I guess the card draw is a little on the weaker side in general, and the lack of ramp to get bombs out before opponents is problematic, but since most of the ramp is colorless artifact based, and the most expensive white cards only take like, 3 white mana to cast and then like, up to 9 colorless or so, it's not too behind everything else in that department.

I see the problems now though. I think it's being overblown a little, but i can see it now.

Good luck on cuts and obtaining the cards. A few of these are perhaps more cute then good justto give you options. Sage's Reverie will be night and day for you I think. If you have more nonbasic lands I'd look at adding some in. Warping Wail is a colorless option if you want a counterspell.

IHATENAMES Great recommendations! Some of these I’ve actually picked up and I’m currently working on cutting them into the deck such as Kor Spiritdancer, Eidolon of Countless Battles and a few others, but I hadn’t thought of a couple of those! (Sage's Reverie is on my list to get, my local store just hasn’t had one in and I haven’t ordered it online yet). Thanks for the input!

Suggestions:

Kor Spiritdancer a better shram in the deck id run both

Eidolon of Countless Battles + for each aura

Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist moves auras especially for faith fetter type effects

Heliod's Pilgrim aura tutor

Boonweaver Giant aura tutor onto a body

Umbra Mystic Totem armor effects in general are good. One of the recent precons was aura based id look at that one for ideas!

Nomad Mythmaker recursion

Skybind interesting flicker effect for enchantment perms with sigardas aid out you can blink your lands to cast more auras next opponents turn. or flicker tokens etb creature ect.

Mistveil Plains return auras to re tutor for with your commander.

Homeward Path vultron doesn't like opponents taking their toys

Lost Leonin Infect if you choose is an option here is one to look at.

Flickerform Decent especially if you run auras that etb draw

Hero of Iroas cost reducer that gets a benefit when targeted.

Faith Unbroken removal aura

Sage's Reverie HIGHLY suggested card draw and powerful aura

Sphere of Safety If you want a late game plan this might give you time to do something else like Approach of the Second Sun

Hey! I think that you should use more Auras that draws a card when they enter the battlefield (e.g. Angelic Gift for flying, Grisly Transformation for evasion to non-Orzhov creatures, Sage's Reverie ). A card like Chosen by Heliod probably work better than Holy Strength , for example.

A card like Skeletal Scrying may help you drawing cards. You can use Auras destroyed by the first time Killian is removed to fuel it.

What do you think about Hateful Eidolon ? It can be a voltron beater and help you draw cards if Killian is destroyed. Scarab of the Unseen can also help you recovering Auras from a creature that is about to be destroyed. This with Auras that draws a card when they enter the battlefield may be a good card advantage play.

Maybe a boardwipe or two can help you in some situations.

SnakeByte77, I think I would remove Sage's Reverie to make room for Angelic Destiny , given that its abilities for draw and power increases are redundant through Kor Spiritdancer and All That Glitters , among other cards.

I think something people have forgotten to mention about card draw in white in this thread is that it has some pretty huge synergies with auras and card draw.

For example:

And there's tons of white aura support with graveyard recursion that stops aura's big downfall (2 for 1'ing a creature that's been enchanted with a Doomblade or something). So if you were running a white auras deck you wouldn't have any problems with filtering, card draw, or graveyard recursion. It actually plays more like a blue deck than anything else white has to offer. It's just been overshadowed by the bogles deck archetype for auras, due to its incredible strength and showing in competitive tournaments, which demands WU or UG as its colors. Basically, why bother with recursion when you can just pop auras on unblockable hexproof creatures and have a deck that can't be interacted with?

since you said 'I love the concept of "one creature that wins" ' i take it you put all the friendly aura's on your commander? doesn't your commander get removed with something like Swords to Plowshares whenever an opponent can to cause all of those aura's to be put in your graveyard?

anyway, what about bestow creatures like Kestia, the Cultivator or Eidolon of Countless Battles ? also Steal Enchantment can give you two enchantments for the price of one. and Control Magic is pretty good.

then there's Nexus Wardens , Yavimaya Enchantress , Celestial Ancient and definitely Sage's Reverie .

also multicolored aura's like Shield of the Oversoul , Shielding Plax , Favor of the Overbeing , Steel of the Godhead .
