Divinity of Pride and Stillmoon Cavalier are good cards.

Idyllic Tutor, play less halo's and circles and add a enchantment toolbox.
(Endless horizon, Light from Within, Mobilization and O Ring are white options, you could ofcourse splash another color for more..)

Maybe some 2/2's like knight of the white orchid or knight of meadowgrain.

so you win by attacking with elspeth tokens, manlands or kitchen finks?

How do you win vs other control decks? It is not like they can't deal with those threats (if they couldn't they wouldn't be very controlling right?).

You need more powerful win conditions.

You definitely need at least one Endless Horizons!


Best card there is for mono white I would probably play more than 1.

Endless Horizons is garbage. >.< My opponent bounces it with Cryptic Command, and I lose my land. And since 5CC is /so/ popular, I think I'll leave that weakness out.



or here is an idea...
dont get all your lands?


And fae can easily stop your runed halo. They play cryptic command + other counters. As well as countering your wrath.

Bitterblossom is gonna kill you and is usually enough against control variants! I would suggest possibly running wispmare in the sideboard so you can kill bitterblossom before they untap! if youre on the play you can even hardcast it and chump with it later on.

In response to Verdo:

The only really thing other control decks can get over this one is a Turn 2 BB. If it's Turn 2 BB, I lose, just like every other deck out there against 5CC.

If they don't hit their BBs, it's a game. They can suck down their life with Bitterblossom, and I'll Wrath away their tokens, or Martial Coup them away, and have my own Soldiers tokens to beat in with. Path to Exile handles any big threats they may drop, and I can Story Circle BB tokens if I have to.

Against Fae, I just Halo and watch as they lose the biggest utility on their Mistbinds, and giggle as they tap themselves out.


I didn't say that you couldn't deal with their threats. I said that they can deal with yours, because they are control decks. They can deal with Elspeth, Kitchen Finks and Watchtower/Mutavault! And since you don't have card draw or disruption, you will lose the attrition war.

Maybe take out a story circle as they're redundant.

They're not good in the begining, but lapsing a Cruel Ultimatum is amazing.
