    Yep, that mardu charm is the signal we've been looking for. But let's keep in mind we may not want a lot of mardu cards, especially aggressive white ones. We look more like a controlling BRw version to me.

    Monastery Flock, for reasons I've mentioned before.

    That's a late hordechief.

    The pick is one of the creatures. The summit prowler is most likely to make the cut, but the green creatures are more useful than a vanilla four-drop.

    I'll vote for the highland game. We'll want it against aggressive decks.

    I like awaken the bear more than most. It's possible rush of battle is the correct pick. But I'll stick with my pet card for now, with the excuse that it's on color (we seem to be BGw, with no fixing).

    Ouch. The pick is between the banner and summit prowler... An argument could be made for one of the blue cards, but they're so bad that it's not really a signal they're still in the pack.

    The big monster gets the nod. It's efficient, enables ferocious, and can form the base of a deck trying to go big and fast. It does struggle to attack into unflipped morphs, however. Too many morphs outsize it.

    Realistically, we may not play any of these cards.

    Easy Snowhorn rider. More beef, please.

    The red two-drop is the only other consideration, but might end up being a bad fit in our deck, if we end up a slower base-UG version of temur.

    I don't plan to play any banners in this deck. We'll get all the fixing we need by playing duals and a high land count.

    Force Away is the best card in the pack, and is perfect for our deck.

    We're solidifying ourselves into UR spells, which is too bad, because a lot of the best jeskai cards are white. UR is still a viable archetype, but let's be ready to dump the leaping master for white, if we get the option.

    Alabaster Kirin. Efficient, vigilant fliers are good in multiples.

    The runner-up is sagu archers, but I'm convinced we want to limit our green exposure. There are more than enough warriors and outlast cards in WB. Green should be splash only. And while you can splash the archers, I'd prefer to take the evasive attacker.

    Jeskai is open. Wow!

    Nonetheless, I'm not going to give up on our excellent black cards easily. My thought would be to position ourselves into mardu, so we can play two thirds of all these amazing jeskai cards going around. That said, I'm not just going to jump into white for a feat of resistance when we already have a good red card and red fixing pointing us toward BR. Bring low is on-color, low-risk, and fits our removal + fatties plan.

    Sultai scavenger, and we cool it on delve cards for a bit. We need to start prioritizing cheaper creatures and effects, which all incidentally support delve. In fact, it may turn out in hindsight that mardu skullhunter was the correct pick here.

    Awaken the bear is good in an aggressive deck. Everything about our deck so far tells me bring low is a better pick.

    Abzan Banner.

    Seems like we're all of the same mind. Banners are bad, but there's nothing else in the pack.

    Since no ones mention it, I'll point out that defiant strike isn't really on color for us. We're BGw, and you'd never splash a card like defiant strike. In fact, if there were a good, splashable blue card, I'd take a hard look at it. It's easy to splash in BG, and I could see us ending up in sultai with a few white cards.

    Seems like we're either sultai or temur, both of which are blue wedges. Why are we not all slamming the Treasure Cruise? It's on-color, and the best card in the pack.

    It's not clear to me if we're WR or UR at this point, so monastery flock seems like a good hedge that will make it into any version.
