Let us replace some of these bad on theme cards with some good on theme cards.

Cards to cut:

  • Agent of Masks
  • Council Guardian
  • Council of the Absolute
  • Ghost Council of Orzhova
  • Lieutenants of the Guard
  • Treasury Thrull

There are other cards I'd probably cut, but these ones are the absolute worst in my opinion.

And while they are good cards; Drogskol Reaver, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and Sorin Markov don't seem to be on theme.

Suggestions of cards to add:

Also, there is no Crown of Empires to go with the Throne and Scepter.

I love helping out EVERYONE else as well. I have one big issue with the idea of letting them all do WHATEVER they want. Someone is going to ramp really fast into a table kill in my experience. I have moved more to a Group Hug meets police style. By this I mean you can all have EVERYTHING from your deck, but with the threat of if someone gets out of control I will politely F them UP! Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Torpor Orb, Maze of Ith, Time Stop (a must have against the combo player) and more. Notice I have tried to keep all of my removal tied to giving some form of a gift in place of having to deny their plans. Currently my deck is missing some of my cards on loan to another few decks, but my list is updated to what is in it over all the cards I personally have in it when they aren't on loan. PS don't overlook cards like Arbiter of Knollridge.

Christmas Hippo is here if you want to take a look. My goal is the same with no real attempt to win. If I do it is because they all ran out of cards. My only true wincon is Sphinx's Tutelage. Easily replaceable to have no win con.

MRDOOM3, I agree with taking out Hunted Dragon and Herald of the Host (not a super worth while non-Giant) as well as Blade of Selves (put in side board for potential multi-man since I only usually have a 1v1 or 3 for all). I don't like as Arbiter of Knollridge since my deck all things considered is a fairly early striker in comparison to my playgroup, so I would more or less be making my opponents gain life. Also due to my playgroup, Fumiko the Lowblood and Curse of the Nightly Hunt runs a risk of having myself overwhelmed quickly if I am not careful. For this reason I run Boros Battleshaper and some of the burn spells. I did take out Vivid Meadow and Vivid Crag due to the fact that I rarely lacked any needed colors between my land draw or my mana rocks. For that reason the coming into play tapped was more of a inconvenience than anything.

I naturally pulled Aurelia, the Warleader from a pack, so I definitely put her in. I have not had a chance to purchase Iroas, God of Victory. I really like the suggestions of Aurelia's Fury and Mizzium Mortars, but I would need to acquire them as well (once I figure out what to get rid of to add them). I have Hostility in my Side Board since it is not quite how I normally play but I can see it used in some circumstances. I had thought about trying Boldwyr Intimidator, but he was more expensive than his own good. I also realized he would work better in more of a Warrior Tribal deck when this is more of a pseudo Giant Tribal.

Thank you for the suggestions and if you have any other feedback now that I have made some post combat changes it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all the upvotes and comments, guys!!

Clay_Teapot, I do have both of the Tempt cards you mentioned in this deck already. Tempt with Reflections is especially fun when I copy something like Magus of the Vineyard. In a four player game, if everyone takes me up on my offer, each player gets 16 green mana at their first main phase. Hilarity ensues!

Ocelot44, Yeah, with Mirror Gallery out, I could Tempt with Shizuko, Caller of Autumn in a four player game and each would get 24 green mana every turn, rather than 16. Oh the humanity!!

RainbowInferno, I do have an Arbiter of Knollridge and considered it. It's a daunting mana cost though, and that late in the game, it would surely piss off whoever is about to win, so I don't know...

And finally...metalevolence, you sound like a fun guy, wound a little tight perhaps, but love your ideas on threat assessment.

I would take out Hunted Dragon, Herald of the Host, and probably Blade of Selves. Arbiter of Knollridge is too funny to be taken out, Fumiko the Lowblood and Curse of the Nightly Hunt proves to be good in situations where the opponent's deck does not like attacking. Vivid Meadow and Vivid Crag should probably be left in because, well, most every creature in this deck has a CMC greater than 5.

I would definitely put in Aurelia, the Warleader, since she gets along well with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. If you have an Iroas, God of Victory, you'd might as well put him in too, for the same reason as Aurelia. Meanwhile, 2 other cards I put in my Wade into Battle deck are Aurelia's Fury and Mizzium Mortars, since the deck can use more burn, especially if you plan of running Hostility. Boldwyr Intimidator may or may not come in handy for this deck, I haven't tried yet.

These are just some things that I did with my deck, hope they help to some extent.

Took out the double damage cards (Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath) because one of my friends in my weekly group plays Rakdos, Lord of Riots, and it would give him an unfair advantage. Also, I took out Thada Adel, Acquisitor because I'm like the only one playing blue xD. I put the card into the side board for my LGS.

I added some token generating cards so for exchange purposes, specifically Conqueror's Pledge and Increasing Devotion. Also added Arbiter of Knollridge because its hilarious.
