    White Aggro

    So, I want to update my white weenie (which was standart at 8th edition) to a stronger version. It's a non-competitive deck, which plays in a aggro infested meta.
    Here is the current list:
    [spoiler]

    4 Tundra Wolves
    4 Deftblade Elite
    4 Auriok Glaivemaster
    4 Auriok Steelshaper
    4 Silver Knight
    4 Leonin Skyhunter

    4 Glorious Anthem
    4 Raise the Alarm
    4 Disenchant
    4 Bonesplitter
    2 Wing Shards

    18 plains

    [/spoiler]

    Aggro matchups usually stall and the bigger critters tend to break the equilibrium. So I'm choosing to upgrade. I thought about 2 options:

    1) Replace the soldiers with better scaling creatures and add quest pack searching for argentum armor

    Benalish Marshal
    Jazal Goldmane
    Odric, Master Tactician
    Knight of the White Orchid
    Quest for the Holy Relic
    1 Argentum Armor
    Swords to Plowshares


    2) Angels (Like Angel Stompy, but replacing Chalice and Trinisphere with mana acceleration for budget purposes, allowing a T2/3 big angel):

    Sol Ring
    Gold Myr
    Gisela, the Broken Blade
    Angel of invention
    Sublime Archangel
    Shalai, Voice of Plenty


    3) Forget about pure aggro white and move on to other color

    Ideas?

    Option 1 is probably better that option 2, as the angel deck would play a lot of cards that are not important and place too much importance on single, unprotected critters. A single Swords to Plowshares would be a blowout.

    What about Crusade in place of Glorious Anthem?

    I would replace the Tundra Wolves with stronger 1-drops, like Mother of Runes, Isamaru, maybe even Dauntless Bodyguard.

    You play 8 cards that care about equipment but only 4 bonesplitter, maybe add some Umezawa's Jitte (the best combat equipment)?

    The classic White Weenie strategy back in the day was creatures into Armageddon, but maybe this is too "unfun" for your meta?

    Actually Armageddon idea is a REALLY fun strategy, I didn't think about it, now I'll buy them.
    The only thing that's not fun is playing storm, because they don't have answers.
    Tundra wolves was just a lack of money and card availability at the time (2004), there are tons of better 1 drops now, especially Student of Warfare.
    About crusade, we have Honor of the Pure now, but I think that creatures like Marshal (less money) and Knight Exemplar put more pressure.

    I goldfished both options, and T1 Sol Ring into T2 Gisela seems so strong... But removal really is more distrupting against option 2 without Shalai at board.

    Re: White Aggro

    My white aggro:

    4 Judge's Familiar
    4 Whipcorder
    4 Knight of the Holy Nimbus
    4 Magus of the Disk
    4 Duskrider Peregrine
    4 Ivory Giant

    4 Beckon Apparition
    4 Darksteel Axe
    2 Darksteel Pendant
    4 Shackles

    22 Plains

    Card explanations:
    Judge's Familiar ... 1 mana drop, flyer, and the only little way to interact with combo maindeck.
    Whipcorder ... Help vs fatties, or just 2/2 attacker for 2.
    Knight of the Holy Nimbus ... Decent weenie, may survive Magus' reset.
    Magus of the Disk ... The key card. Resets the game, ideally just before suspends start entering the battlefield.
    Duskrider + Giant ... The backup. Excellent vs pre-ban Miracles control, killing planeswalkers etc.
    Beckon Apparition ... Creates 1/1 flyer. Nice vs graveyard strategies (e.g. Dredge, Flashback storm, Reanimation). In Legacy never dead card thanks to opponent's fetchlands.
    Darksteel stuff ... Survive Magus. Pendant generates card quality, Axe helps weenies considerably.
    Shackles ... Work well with Whipcorder and Giant, reusable after Magus.
    My decks from real paper cards:

    Emerald Horologe
    Simian Gorgon Sligh
    Blood Bats
    Magdisk White Weenie
