    I see what your deck is trying to accomplish but it seems like it has a lot lot of control aspects to it at all times, where mine is just a little late game control. I don't know if my deck needs the control your deck has, but I won't know till I test it out.

    Ok so this is my idea for a Bant deck. It uses exalted but not as much as a lot of exalted decks.



    The idea of the deck is to have some early beats but also have late game control. The finishers would be the infiltrator or the Troll. Combined with exalted and Rafiq or Battlegrace is a deadly combo. It's even better with the Warhammer on them. The deck is definitly more white/green with a blue splash for some of the bigger cards.

    I think I need it tweaked a little though. And I can't figure out a good mana base. Any help would be apreciated.

  • posted a message on Rafiq is good? How so?
    My deck idea uses an ok amount of exalted guys combined with cards that are hard to deal with/have good avoidance. I plan to use Jhessian infiltrator, Troll Ascetic and Loxodon Warhammer to push through with the guys I am attacking with. On top of that I use Stoic Angel, the bant enchantment, and Battlegrace angel for exalted, and more controly aspects. Rafiq is a good finisher combined with unblockable though. And you really only need 3 to 4 creatures on the board at a time, especially with the Bant enchantment.

    And its not like you have to attack alone all the time, if its smarter to swing out, you should do it. A lot of people get the misconception that Bant shouldn't do that. I mean if they have 1 creature and you have 4, the obvious choice would to be swing out in most situations. It just depends on what needs to be done.

    For my deck Blue and Green are mostly the minor colors, helping to pay some creature costs for the most part. I mean I'm not 100% how my deck will work, but almost nothing in my deck costs more then 5 mana, and I wanna see how it works, I just need to finalize my deck list. But it definitely looks fun, lets just see how it plays out.

    There are plenty of guys you can use for exalted, take the 2/2 unblockable guy. And he's in Bant's colors also. It's not like there is no evasion for exalted. It's not like every creature you run has to have exlated on it. Plus the enchantment helps a lot also. Tapping a creature while attacking is good so you have more choice over who is blocking you anyway. And then Loxodon warhammer works really well with exalted anyway. It's not like there is no way around it. And most of the solutions are viable I would say.

    Card name is Magma Spray??

    Magma Spray - R

    Deal 2 damage to target creature, it can't be regenerated. If it would be put to graveyard this turn, remove it from the game instead.

    Enchantment - Uncommon

    2: Remove a card in a graveyard from the game and put a 1/1 saprloing into play.

    Is that it??

    I didn't mean to post here sorry...

    So heres what happened. I went 3-1 and got third out of 16 people.

    Round 1 I went 1-2. I was playing a mono green elf deck that closely mirrored mine, but he made a lot of tokens which is what killed me. First game I won with Garruk overrunning his board pretty easily. Game 2 was not even close. He managed to get a lot of tokens out fast with 2 imperious perfects out. Game 3 was close but he got a Garruk which allowed him to overrun for the win.

    Round 2 I went 2-0. I played a mono black aggro deck. First game I just got tons of good early drops and just ran him over easy. Game 2 I was a little slower getting stuck on 3 lands, but managed to draw the land and get Colossus out for the win.

    Round 3 I went 2-1. It was against some sort of Merfolk Colossus deck. Game one I ran over him pretty fast, where as game 2 I got him down to 2 life and I made some play errors that let him pull off the win. Game 3 I just ran over him again with a Garruk.

    Round 4 I went 2-0. I played a fast Land Destruction deck. Game one he controlled the board pretty well, and destroyed a ton of land, but when he ran out of cards in hand he was a sitting duck. He actually got me to 10 pretty easily though. Game 2 wasn't as fast for him, but I was stuck at 2 lands for a while then 3 after which he cast Deus. I managed to kill it with a 5/5 Twinblade and basically chump blocked the rest of his creatures. But after that Colossus came out and the game was over.

    So all in all I think the deck ran really well. For cards that helped me win a lot... I would say obv Colossus and Garruk. But Twinblade was amazing so often, and Bramblewood helped push a lot of damage through. Stonewood saved my butt more then once also. Least good card was prob the sentinels. I mean they were decent, but maybe not good enough. I plan to run it again next week, but any suggestions on changes if any??

    Ok so I am going to a Standard tournament tonight and I'm trying to tune my deck. I don't have a lot of money to spend, and might not have access to to many cards, but I want to see if there is anything I should do to tweak my deck. Please give constructive criticism. I don't want to play elves, I don't want to rework my whole deck, I just want to rework this deck the best it can be.



    Also any suggestions for a good sideboard. I would have liked to run firespout but my bro is using them all. I do plan on adding Vexing Shusher and Krosan Grip but thats all I can think of right now. Thanks for the help. And for some reason this is being dumb and not allowing me to put card tags around any of the cards in the deck...

    Sorry guys, I've just been busy and kinda hoping for another deck. If someone could take over for a little bit that would be great, school and work is killing me right now. I'll be back, and maybe even make a deck or 2 for some contests. Sorry about all of this, but I'm glad people are still trying.

    Well I like exalted with the Angel we saw that untaps 1 creature a turn, they will have very little blockers and if they do block its an almost guaranteed kill. Seems to be pretty synergetic.

    You can edit it if you wish. The decks aren't final until the votes are in. And I love the decks so far, lots of fun. And thanks for doing the points. Makes everything much easier. Right now I am just overwhelmed with the amount of work I'm doing. It's kinda funny but I might have more time come fall... school won't be as bad then as it is now lol.

    OK so the card is Tooth of Chiss-Goria" target="blank">Tooth of Chiss-Goria. Sorry I haven't been keeping up with the points, like I said earlier, if someone wants to take over that, that would be great. If not, we might just go by how the judges vote in general. Always get someone new anyway. Good luck to everyone.

    I'm fine with it for now I guess. If to many people come up with the sameish deck or not many decks are posted, then I will require a new card be picked.
