I enjoy mono white equipment vultron in edh. I have run many over the years starting from the forged in stone starter edh deck and this deck reminds me I need to update my current brew (balan is at the helm).

I'd recommend looking into ramp. Legion's Landing  Flip Windbrisk Heights Oketra's Monument Loyal WarhoundGauntlet of Power just to name a few.

I'd revisit which equipment you run. Example Godsend Batterskullis fun. But generally bad in edh in my play testing. Blackblade Reforged highly recommended

Removal. This is gonna be meta dependent you seem kinda light on removal. Another boardwipe might be good only especially is kinda rough. I'd suggest something like Balancing ActOndu Inversion  FlipTragic ArroganceDusk / Dawn or a power toughness based wipe that keeps your weenies. (Erase a better demystify)

Suntitan Nahiri, the Lithomancer or other recursion. I know you are trying to play the aggressive game but a long term plan is always good.

Meta dependent but running silence? Much better in1v1 unless you are using it to stop a combo or stop interaction with your combo.

Tutors perhaps to make a Xtra copy of a few of your cards Search for Glory or Thalia's Lancers would hit lands artifact and even elspeth

Perhaps more lands 30 is kinda low 34 is the lowest I go. If you can't find what to cut for it look onto the BFZ flip lands for utility that can also be lands like Ondu Inversion  Flip

Other cards I just suggest that I like: Dawn of Hope Brave the ElementsJazal Goldmane Crescendo of War

FisterMantastic I don't know your build (I'll be happy to check it out if you want to share it), but this works quite well for me overall as long as I have good sideboarding plan. Is not like I am winning everything but overall I win more than I lose and I rarely get "completely destroyed".

I don't really know what to tell you about vial either, It makes God's work for me as long as I play it T1 or T2. Like in every deck, makes wonders against control, ensures I stay on curve, ramps, allows instant speed blocks etc. but also allowing some shenanigans like activating Resplendent Angel on opponents turns, explosive instant speed blocks and attacks with Righteous Valkyrie or Archangel of Thune, using Shalai, Voice of Plenty as some kind of counter spell... So there is not a chance in the world I am cutting that in my build, but if you don't feel like it works for you, cut it out.

Once again, I don't know your list and your local meta so I might be wrong, but assuming both are similar to mine, I've tried Soul Warden in the past and it adds very little value overall. I feel like both Giver of Runes and in a lesser extent Speaker of the Heavens add much more. We don't really go very wide to activate her multiple times per turn, and there aren't many meta decks that really go wide other than maybe affinity (which is not really strong anyway) ATM so you are not getting that much value from the opponents either. As a creature is too weak, she can't even block 1/1s. Having a T1 play to support your T5 play is not the best idea either if she's so weak, because she's rarely going to survive to that point, and adds barely nothing while in play meanwhile. She for sure will net activate Thune from time to time, but it is going to be rare and not as explosive as you might think. The most positive thing about her is not Thune activation but that she gives another extra play that leads to T3 Resplendent Angel activation (Soul Warden into Bishop of Wings into resplendent) and that she makes it quicker to reach 27 life for righteous. This decks makes really good use of Thunes ability but it's not build around maximizing it. If you want something to push in a big way Thune's ability you might want to check Linden, the Steadfast Queen but at that point you'll rather be playing souls sisters with thune as a wincon than Angel tribal.

I've never tried Windbrisk Heights because I never felt like it was really good enough here. First and most important, it might be a me thing, but tapped lands are a huge no no in modern IMO, don't ever let them get near me, xD. Also with my build I don't really attack with 3 creatures that often, many times I don't do it in the whole game (and not because I had a bad game, I might have easily won) so I feel that it will be very inconsistent. I think it's like Emeria's Call  Flip seems pretty good enough effect to take a small price to play the land, but in the end you get to use the "not land part" so rarely and of those times is so few of them decisive that any price on the land regardless of how small it is ends up not being worth it. Once again, it might not be true in your build, or even in mine because I haven't tried it and might be wrong, so if you try it let us know how it went!.

Good luck in the next FNM!

Hey, I tried to make this work out but at my FNM I just get completely destroyed in most all matchups. I never get to really use aether vial at all, so it seems like it ends up being pretty dead for me.

I've been trying to make angels work for the last 3 months to no avail, this friday I will be trying out the deck with some soul sisters for ETB effects for Thune, and potentially some Windbrisk Heights. Have you tried any of those cards out in this type of deck?

This list looks really fun! I like Legion's Landing  Flip in Teysa. I've overlooked it in the past because of the land's lackluster activated ability, but I'm just now realizing how strong a 1 mana land-ramp card is in white. Since you can easily flip it in a deck with tokens, it seems strong.

I've been looking over your decklist, and I have a few suggestions about what to improve. First off, you're a little low on death triggers. Since this is Teysa's main strength, you may want to include more. If I counted right, you have 13 death triggers plus 2 more that aren't doubled by Teysa ( Luminous Broodmoth and Nether Traitor ). This makes Teysa herself more inconsistent. Just playing some more tokens-on-death cards like Ministrant of Obligation instead of Lingering Souls can go a long way to help facilitate her first ability as well as your cards that don't trigger off of tokens, like Pawn of Ulamog .

Second, I'd be careful about counting scry-effects like Temple of Silence , Woe Strider , or Path of Ancestry as card advantage. Scrying doesn't net you any cards. It's more like card filtering or card selection rather than card advantage. If you want lands that can provide card advantage, I'd go for Orzhov Basilica or Windbrisk Heights . Similarly, Verge Rangers don't ramp you, they just provide card advantage.

Overall, really cool list. I like Field of the Dead , Inkshield , and Shadowspear . They add some spice in unexpected places. I'm interested in where this list ends up. Cheers!

I see you have Sword of the Animist already. Awesome! I also use Terrain Generator and Lotus Field in my Nahiri equipment deck for additional non-artifact ramp. It works really well. I've also been known to Settle the Wreckage several of my own tokens after moving the equipment to another creature like Balan, Armory Automaton , or Heavenly Blademaster . I've gotten 6 lands before on a single turn doing this! Also, I know you said you didn't want to run rocks but so many people don't know that Inspiring Statuary is ridiculously strong in equipment decks. Basically it turns all of your equipment into mana rocks! Windbrisk Heights is also another land-based way of cheating out a high mana cost card.

My deck if you're curious: Pure Nahiri

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.

Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.

Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.

Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.

Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound

Cheap Utility Doggos- Abzan Beastmaster Ainok Guide Bolt Hound Resolute Watchdog Selfless Savior

Some real cheap beefers could be nice considering they make a token, but could also see not making the cut- Wild Nacatl Loam Lion Leonin Vanguard Isamaru, Hound of Konda Sacred Cat

Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver

Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie

General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

cyeRunner on Brothers o' War - MonoW Tokens

ellie-is: here is the update from today:
- Game1 Esper Control: Got good starts in both Matches
- Game2 AspiringSpikes Jeskai Wildfire:
-- Match 1: Mulligand to 5 with still 1 Land -> Conceded turn 3 to opponents Teferi, Time Raveler with only 1 Land myself
-- Match 2, the good case happened: Got 4 Birds out of Battle Screech Turn 4 and won Turn 6 with them :)
-- Match 3, the bad case happened: Got my board cleared with Supreme Verdict, played but was not able to flash back Battle Screech afterwards and then lost the game to Cryptic Command + Mystic Sanctuary + Jace, the Mind Sculptor :(
- Game3 Temur Taking Turns:
-- Match 1: Opponent was able to keep his head above the water with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath's Lifegain and Cryptic Command-Tap my Team. Did not draw any "Virtues" and lost to the combo with 13 1/1 creature tokens onboard
-- Match 2: Opponent got down a turn 1 Wrenn and Six due to Gemstone Caverns and was able to ping down my early tokens, played an Anger of the Gods turn 4, slowed me down with Jace, the Mind Sculptor & Chandra, Torch of Defiance and won with his combo turn 7

Conclusion: the games where overshadowed by my lack of sideboard cards against control and not by Battle Screech alone and I need more playtests, do you have any suggestions ?
The MonoW manabase felt a lot better than the Orzhov manabase indeed

I don't think that cutting on the 2-Drops is a good idea due to the low landcount and Windbrisk Heights coming into play tapped (sometimes turn 3) , it would be possible to run a split between Battle Screech, Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls.
