I've been a constant reader of your articles and fixes, but now I have my own! It's a little tier 1 quality deck they like to call MONO-WHITE CONTROL.

Based on what I've seen, this looks like a base for the deck: (using Cloudpost rather than Urzatron)

16 Plains
4 Cloudpost
4 Temple of the False God
4 Eternal Dragon
4 Exalted Angel
4 Weathered Wayfarer
4 Renewed Faith
4 Wing Shards
4 Akroma's Vengeance
4 Decree of Justice
4 Wrath of God
4 Mindslaver

(as you can see i have 4 of every card. you can change the amount of ANY card, except i'd like to keep 4 Mindslavers.)

Comments: Obviously MWC needs the massive mana accel. There's a few cards I wanted to add in, but they "conflicted" with other cards. The main card i WANTED to put in was Damping Matrix due to its horrific ability to shut down goblin bidding and Ravager Affinity. But it also shuts down my Weathered Wayfarer. So what should I do?

Do you prefer Clouspost or Urzatron? If you prefer Urzatron, CHANGE THE DECK! :)

Also, I've been struggling with a sideboard. In my area, the main decks that are played are Ravager Affinity and Red/Green LD. Could you make a "mock" sideboard?

Thank you so much for all your help.

Okay here is the deck that I built for Chad taking into account the cards he wanted to keep and the fact that he wanted to remain mono-white. The main issue I have with working on the deck is that Chad wanted to be able to play Dampning Matrix in the main but keep the Mindslavers also in the main deck. The problem with the Dampning Matrix going in is that you have Weathered Wayfarer and Mindslaver and both are affected by the Matrix. If you play against Ravager Affinity you really want in most cases to be able to drop the Dampning Matrix on turn three if possible. Well if you drop the Dampning Matrix on three that makes the Mindslaver and the Weathered Wayfarer pretty ineffective until you cast Akroma’s Vengence in which case you have pretty much wrecked Ravager Affinity anyway. So if you are going to play Dampning Matrix main I would pull the Weathered Wayfarer for sure. With the two decks that are most popular right now needing only three to four land to be effective you don’t get as much uses from the Wayfarer. So rather than just giving Chad one build I am giving him several small changes to several builds.

Build One (Heavy Control)

16 Plains
4 Cloudpost
4 Temple of the False God
4 Eternal Dragon
4 Exalted Angel
4 Oblivion Stone
4 Renewed Faith
4 Wing Shards
4 Akroma's Vengeance
4 Decree of Justice
4 Wrath of God
4 Mindslaver

One simple change to remove the Wayfarer and add the Oblivion Stone. This adds multiple ways to kill lots of permanent and set back both Goblins and Ravager based decks. It should be noted that although this build is only a four card change it is probably my favorite build of it.

Build Two (Harder to Play Control)

16 Plains
4 Cloudpost
4 Temple of the False God
4 Eternal Dragon
3 Exalted Angel
4 Dampning Matrix
4 Renewed Faith
3 Wing Shards

3 Oblivion Stone
4 Akroma's Vengeance
3 Decree of Justice
4 Wrath of God
4 Mindslaver

This version requires you to make a lot more judgment calls on when to play certain cards. Holding off on a Damping Matrix can be key if you want to be able to use your Mindslaver or Oblivion Stones. Not a version for the weak of heart.

Build Three (Slaver Less and not for the weak of heart)

16 Plains
4 Cloudpost
4 Temple of the False God
3 Eternal Dragon
3 Exalted Angel
4 Dampning Matrix
3 Renewed Faith
4 Wing Shards
4 Akroma's Vengeance
4 Decree of Justice
4 Wrath of God
3 Pulse of the Fields

4 Oblivion Stone

In a field with lots of goblins and Ravager Affintiy I really like this build. The extra life gain in pulse of the fields may be overkill but it can keep you going till you reach a mass removal spell. Once again the interaction of the Dampning Matrix and the Oblivion Stone is pretty bad but play it correctly and you can get around it.

 

Well those are the fixes that I have for the deck and I hope that this gives you a couple of ideas. If you are wanting to play a deck that I believe is really a better version of the deck.
