Banner Protection Against Patrols!
The Pillager Patrols can be somewhat annoying when trying to secure a safe area, especially when they can spawn in almost any biome that a normal mob can spawn but can do so in the day as well. If we have torches for defending against mobs who spawn at night, then there should be something that protects against the spawn of the Pillager Patrols. Since they do spawn a little bit later in the game and they are meant to be harder, then the item that is meant to stop their spawn (like torches) should be harder to attain. It should also be related to the patrol in some way.
If the Patrols carry the Ominous Banner, then by adding a special ingredient to a normal (potentially designed) banner, and placing the banner down or against the wall. Not only would patrols not spawn but they would also avoid the affected radius. This would only affect Patrolling parties and not illagers chasing from outposts or woodland mansions or illagers from a "Bad Omen" raid. This effect is meant so that a player can effectively secure their base if they choose to live far enough from a village, outpost, or woodland mansion.
Some ideas for some ingredients that are already naturally occurring: nether quartz, glowstone, even blaze rod dust (anything really from the nether point in the game), phantom membrane, ocean monument stuff. A good idea would be one of these items (glowstone, for instance) mixed with an ingredient that you would get when the Ominous Banner is ground up or smelted. (Ex. omen dust)
