Secure the Wastes


Create X 1/1 white Warrior creature tokens.

One of the newer token producers that I can think of is Charismatic Conqueror, but that's not necessarily guaranteed token production. It might be worth looking at more spell-slinger focused Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip or Jetmir, Nexus of Revels decks, since some of the builds I've seen irl tend to use spell-slinging based token production to support the token production on creatures that are mostly in the 3+ cmc range.

Yeah, Sov Okinec is a little confusing at first. You are correct in your 2nd comment. Let's say Sov Okinec attacks, and you have a Walking Ballista with 2 +1/+1 counters already on it. Sov Okinec would give Ballista another 2 +1/+1 counters, since Ballista's base power is 0. It will continue to balloon from there.

I currently run Sov Okinec and Kutzil in my Gylwain, Casting Director deck, since all role auras provide a baseline +1/+1 buff

This deck seems really fun! Great Build so far!

Rhys the Redeemed along with all of the token doubling enchantments such as Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Mondrak, Glory Dominus, Parallel Lives, would all do insanely well in here, as well as more spells with X in the cost like March of the Multitudes, Arachnogenesis, White Sun's Zenith, and Secure the Wastes.

I have a Rhys deck that works similar to this and specializes in creating an insane amount of tokens. You're welcome to check it out for more ideas! SO MANY ELVES!!

Lot of my suggestions are leaning into tokens because Blood Avatar clearly wants that, and if i can find a spell that makes tokens than Extus will be happy too. Thats my idea.

Big Score, Unexpected Windfall, Blood for Bones, Rakdos Charm, Fiery Confluence, Crackle with Power, Storm King's Thunder, Bonus Round, Sram's Expertise, Electrodominance, Jaya Ballard, Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Assemble the Legion, Secure the Wastes, Call the Coppercoats, Fury Storm, Ashnod's Altar, Prosperous Partnership, Divine Visitation

Let's take a short break here, because you need better creatures. Creatures that have VALUE as you recast them over and over, maybe even discard outlets. I hate to say it (and i'm not going to list them) but Aristocrat creatures are ideal here because they are cheap, and gain life which can then be used to cast wild stuff like Bolas's Citadel.

Dragonmaster Outcast, Viscera Seer, Cathar Commando, Leonin Relic-Warder, Mondrak, Glory Dominus, Lagomos, Hand of Hatred, Pitiless Plunderer, Mahadi, Emporium Master, Woe Strider, Ophiomancer, Mayhem Devil, Children of Korlis, Insolent Neonate, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sengir Autocrat, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Sun Titan

Also if this just ins't the direction you wanna go thats ight

Thanks so much Ben!

I've taken the Secure the Wastes card and put it in! Considering Divine Visitation

Solid build. I was in a similar boat with mono white being out of my comfort zone. I thought long and hard about building Mondrak but ended up going with the new Elesh Norn instead. Secure the Wastes and Grand Crescendo would be money in this deck plus adding some extra protection with crescendo. Also Divine Visitation feels like a must have. Doubling 4/4 angels is to good not to include

tjr3823 - I like the idea of this deck but wanted to ask how has it been performing?

In terms of some suggestions, Parallel Lives might be a great fit for this deck. I would also recommend if you are running Scute Mob and Scute Swarm to maybe drop Brass's Bounty in exchange for more ramp. These card due best when then you are hitting an extra land or two early on to accelerate their growth. Having said that, I do not think Scute Mob is a good fit for this deck as it does nto really hit the 1/1 theme. Welcoming Vampire or Mentor of the Meek might make a good addition to get some much needed draws to keep this deck moving. I would also think you would like something like Secure the Wastes due to its upside at token creation over Dragon Fodder.

ANyways, I hope that provides you some food for thought. Good luck and happy brewing!

Cool deck! Thalisse is a pretty fun commander. I am sorry to continue to beat a dead horse here, but I would also suggest the inclusion of Smothering Tithe. It's objectively one of the strongest cards in Thalisse (and most white decks to be honest). I see that you are worried about your opponents paying tax, but I want to re-frame it in this way: Smothering Tithe reads as "Either tax your opponents at least 2 mana or create at least 2 tokens on each of your opponent's turns". And that is just the baseline case. Any additional card draw continues to further tax your opponents mana base or advance your board state. The card is very, very strong.

Similarly, you might consider running Ophiomancer. You have enough sac outlets to reliably make tokens each turn.

I also found instant speed token creation to be very strong in my old Thalisse build. Cards like Grand Crescendo (doubles as board wipe protection), Inkshield (a fog that produces an instant army) and Secure the Wastes were pretty good.

One fun interaction that I used to run was Noosegraf Mob + Cathars' Crusade. It's a lot of mana initially, but it's such a dirty token engine.

Since you're looking to up the number of Angel tokens, Have you considered Divine Visitation? If you were to combine this with any combination of including, but not limited to, Alliance of Arms, Martial Coup, Pest Infestation, Secure the Wastes and Sylvan Offering, not only would the combo give you sizeable lifegain with Seraph Sanctuary on the battlefield, but also make Youthful Valkyrie huge.

One Angel Ramp card you should consider is Starnheim Aspirant. Another Angel to get for your deck is Segovian Angel.

Angel of Finality can give you some graveyard hate against decks with strong graveyard interaction.

Angel of Destiny is the must have alternate win card for an angel deck.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!
