From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

Typically, base-white decks are very low to the ground, capitalizing on the power of small and efficient white creatures. These creatures are typically backed up by a small number of power- and/or toughness-boosting effects and cards like Brave the Elements. This deck shares much in common with that style of deck, but attempts to "go bigger" and takes advantage of the higher-mana-cost cards available to white.

The creatures in this deck are chosen to be effective at all parts of the game. Many of them have low mana costs so they can come down early and affect the game. However, they all have some ability that allows them to be relevant later on in the game. Soldier of the Pantheon may not be the most imposing creature, but no amount of multicolored permanents will stand in its way. Keening Apparition is excellent in a Standard full of enchantments. These creatures get support from Dictate of Heliod, which is an incredibly powerful card that is often gets left out of decks because of the demands for both five mana and a steady stream of cheap creatures.

Ephara, God of the Polis is part of the glue that holds this deck together. When you can consistently play creatures, Ephara will help you draw cards so you can get to higher-mana cards such as Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Dictate of Heliod without running out of creatures in play. This deck is also extremely capable of turning Ephara into a creature, with many cards that provide two mana symbols toward devotion to Ephara.
