Welcome back to another week of testing Mono White Monument in Modern. Let's get straight to the videos and after, I talk about what changes need to made. 

As you can see that was an unorthodox deck but it seems the monument can hold its own against them. 

I actually liked playing against this deck. I mentioned I liked the build a lot, it just was not well positioned against the swarm that Monument is capable of producing.

Sadly I did not get to play against any top tier decks. However I can tell that the sideboard needs some work. For reference this is the list I am currently using.

I may try to squeeze two Selfless Spirits into the Main Deck, otherwise I am liking how it plays.

The first change I want to make in the board is getting Wrath of God in there. There are times the board can get cluttered and Wrath is just the cleanest answer.

I also do want to try to replace the Stony Silence with Kataki, War's Wage. I am honestly not sure how my Affinity match up is yet though. I will need to test it more.

Lastly I want to get a Planeswalker or 2 in the deck. I have not really faced any control decks yet but landing an Elspeth, Knight-Errant or perhaps a Gideon, Ally of Zendikar would be a great way to beat them. It is possible to just beat them with a monument because even if they counter your creature you still get the warrior token.

Overall I have been really enjoying this deck. I have two other Modern decks built as well. Next time I will try an aggro deck that features lifegain and even a card from Amonkhet!

Thank you for reading and watching, and until next time!

What about settle the wreckage. Either as a wrath against a swarm, or deck filtering on your part (Attack with tokens then exile them and pull out all basics from your deck, thus increasing the density of spells in your library).

Hmmm thinking Emeria Angel or Emeria Shepherd would be just insane in that case.

That is something to test and try out. Thank you!
