Serene Master Discussion

Balduvian Rage

Monks need a couple Shrines/Honden's so look at those.

Do these monk's use weapons? Flaming Sword, Manriki-Gusari etc.

Master of Pearls, Serene Master, Soltari Monk

Monks scream "protection from creatures" to me so Unquestioned Authority, Spirit Mantle or Holy Mantle

I'm digging the invincible and destroy all mashed together. Creates strong board control and allows you to swing uncontested.

Fist, I've noticed you're running 46 lands, which is quite a few. I think you could cut down to 38 very easily, especially if you cut a few of the larger CMC spells in favor of cheaper alternatives.

So what would I spend those 8 land slots on? Tutors and ramp.

Enlightened Tutor Open the Armory will both help you find Darksteel Plate or Worldslayer

Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map tutor you to your special lands. Tithe can help you with card advantage.

Serenity could be a hot include too for more control. Porphyry Nodes works in a similar vein for creatures and probably combos better with your deck. Planar Collapse is another cheap wiper that can clear the board for you.

Knight of the Holy Nimbus works surprisingly well here too.

I don't think you actually want All Is Dust for this deck! Your commander flipped is a white permanent, and sacrifice goes through indestructible! One of the lower cost mass destruction ( Porphyry Nodes / Planar Collapse ) could easily fit this slot if you didn't use it to replace some plains. Fiend Hunter is also an excellent choice, as it lets you reuse ETB effects by wiping the board, or gives you spot removal on an opponents problem creature.

Not a fan of Omen Machine here either. Pretty expensive for a stax type piece, would much rather see Aven Mindcensor for flash blowouts + beats or more wipes or Spirit of the Labyrinth to keep draw-hate in your list.

Emeria Shepherd Adarkar Valkyrie and Palisade Giant could all be lower CMC creatures to smooth over your early game. Soltari Visionary could give some extra control elements, while Samurai of the Pale Curtain could help against graveyard strategies. Dust Elemental lets you reset your ETB creatures or can be flashed in at EOT before yours to prepare for a board wipe. Even Serene Master could be good for early game to help you get more to mid game!

@ninja988: Those are excellent suggestions! I'll definitely be including them in version 2.0. Serene Master is one of my favorite cards ever.

Serene Master + Crawlspace or Silent Arbiter? Perfect for aggro decks my dude

What are your thoughts on Serene Master? It seems like a good (and also flavorful) blocker for an Aikido style deck.

No monk deck is complete without Serene Master! (purely for flavor...)

I have a copy of Mantis Rider if you are interested, also have you thought about Serene Master
