Where are people putting their deck builds currently? Is this where they go? Dropped $50 on the game and had saved a lot of wildcards and gold going into Dominaria and this is one of the decks I have built. Good record so far with it but too early to tell. Just needing to tweak it a bit? Suggestions please?


It's Just a Flesh Wound! :fight:

2x Baffling End
3x Gideon's Reproach
4x Knight of Grace
2x Paladin of Atonement
4x Seal Away
4x Benalish Marshal
1x Danitha Capashen, Paragon
2x Desert's Hold
4x History of Benalia
2x Radiant Destiny
2x Call the Cavalry
2x Cast Out
2x Ixalan's Binding
2x Kwende, Pride of Femeref
2x Settle the Wreckage
22x Plains

Theme wise I also like the idea of:

Jousting Lance
Forebear's Blade
Shield of the Realm

I played against the orzhov version and the archetype looks great, I guess the Danitha misses a lot of the enchantments to shine a bit more, and I would toss Lyra in there just for the spikes.

Edit: great name! LOL :duel:

I think you're running a bit too much removal, some are gonna be dead cards in control match-ups.
I think the version without Radiant Destiny that runs some vamps is probably better, especially against control.

Try adding Skymarcher Aspirant and some Adanto Vanguards.
White pump the team deserts are worthwhile to swap a few Plains for.

This is a deck I'd like to try but I'm missing most of the cards...

Yes the Vampire knights are very good on this archetype, but there is no way I’m spending 4 mythic WC on the saga... on the otherhand it seems like that saga is a central piece on the Azorious control around Teferi that I’m building... though choices

I had a play white/green spell quest, so I put together a Mono-white mid-rangeish deck from the bits and pieces I've got in my collection. Then I went 3-0 with it... lol

I call it Mono-White Mess.

Creatures (22)
1-drops
4 Skymarcher Aspirant
3 Sacred Cat
1 Dauntless Bodyguard
2-drops
3 Adorned Pouncer
1 Knight of Grace
1 Adanto Vanguard
1 Glory-Bound Initiate
3-drops
1 Danitha Capashen, Paragon
1 Sunscourge Champion
4-drops
1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty
5-drops
2 Angel of Sanctions
1 Crested Sunmare
2 Regal Caracal

Spells (14)
2-drops
1 Baffling End
1 Seal Away
3-drops
1 Gideon of the Trials
2 Radiant Destiny
2 Oketra's Monument
2 Sandblast
4-drops
3 Cast Out
1 Ixalan's Binding
1 Settle the Wreckage

Land (24)
2 Shefet Dunes
21 Plains
1 Field of Ruin

Oketra's monument and angel of sanctions were instrumental in my wins. I played against Mono-white procession tokens (got a perfect curve and heavy cat beat-down action, but he actually dropped a lyra and 2 processions on me and I still won. Ended the game with 80+ life), mono-blue winds deck (which is a deck I want to build myself. I managed to exile his bombs and winds and out race him) and finally merfolks (Had to exile all sorts of nasty stuff like hadana's climb, deeproot elite and kumena. He got me down to 3 life, but I clawed back with lifelink and finished him with flyers and he luckily he never drew the merfolk that taps all my blockers).

It's not like I'm expecting anyone to play this mess, but it seems like white actually has strong, versatile mid-range deck potential. Can't say how good it would be vs approach (probably not very) but it has plenty of lifegain for rdw and exile effects a-plenty for scarab god nonsense. Against approach you can always exile PWs and have plenty of 2/1 1-drops to do plenty of early damage...

Could be a deck...

I have seen so many Baffling End misplays it's not funny anymore. I think a lot of people are getting it confused with 3 power or 3 toughness.

You'd think sealed away would replace Baffling End because of flash, even though it is useless against vigilance (and people misplay that too). Speeking of which, I got a path of Mettle from an ICR reward from a qc and I miss it from my pre-wipe boros deck. Still, I doubt that it's all that strong in the current meta.

I have started playing Mono White Procession deck. It has been fun. Normally destroys RDW, but withers to UW. Pretty good vs the rest of the field.

Mono White Knights has done pretty well when I have played against it.
