Why pacifism as a 1-of?
It's good Post-wrath value for sun-titan. even attaches to hexproof when returned.
This just looks like a UW version of Gerry T & MJ's list from last weekend, with Think Twice replacing Ravings (worse), and taking out a lot of options and versatility.


I don't know if anybody has tested their list, but seriously, the manabase is actually fine.


I think you should splash black for Unburial Rites and better spot removal + Forbidden Alchemy.

You should also be playing Elesh-Norn.

Why not Bonds of faith when it could potentially pump your Snapcaster and Blade Splicer, when it does the same thing as pacifism?

i don't run that many creature cards.  and besides, most of them are things i'd like to return with a sun titan.  moorland is just a little bit of late game when i need it.  otherwise, the ghost quarters are already putting me at a lot of colorless lands.

in other news, this deck has been testing pretty positively against a few things so far.  UR delver decks, RDW, solar flare (i think?), some white aggro decks, GW tokens, and some weird versions of wolf run white.

and yea, i'm sure this is a lot like gerry thompson's (latest) list, but i don't have that list, so i'm not sure what it looks like.  i just wanted to try something with the sun titan/phantasmal image set up, but i didn't want to play solar flare (because i still maintain that deck sucks).

blade splicer is pretty underrated, i'm noticing.  its 2 creatures for one card, which is already a good thing.  on top of that, its a creature thats both good against aggro for early defense and also really good at putting a fast clock against aggro or ramp decks.  late game revival with sun titan is icing on the cake.

Sun Titan, while recurring 3-drops + Images (therefore other Titans) makes the Doom Blade decks have to deal with everything.

Keep recurring a Ludevic Egg, and the guy is gonna have to deal with it everytime. Late game it's not hard to dump 10 mana on that thing in one turn and make the other control deck deal with it.

Plus, you need more threats on board to outplay your Control opponent, so Sun Titan is definitely good here.

It also beats Gideon. And it's just a good card against aggro.

Any white deck playing a long game or able to generate 7 mana reliably should be packing Elesh Norn, she's really nuts. Just run one of her is all you need, but she's well worth the investment.

Egg is good in terms of inevitability with the Sun Titan. Also, vigilance is something a lot of people don't appretiate. Dodging Gideon is good, but having a win condition in a control deck that stay back on blocks at the same time closes a lot of games.

maybe for norn, but i sorta feel like she's overkill.  like, i'm already doing that stuff well enough with other cards i'm running.  and a finisher like white sun is good against both aggro and control.

i feel like elesh is going to be a win more or an easy target.
