Its just for a casual local tournament.

I like War Oracle. Not quite the huge guns of doubtless one but I can use Mikaeus to bump him up.If I'm going to take Order of Whiteclay to recover cards then I will take Loxodon Mystic instead of Banisher Priest. It allows me to change my lockdown target if another priority comes along and I can get the Whiteclay tapped without putting it forward for attack.

I think I will forgo the bounce back of Aegis and Hallow and just rely on the Circles to see me through.

Thanks for the advice so far.

War Oracle for doubtless one and Banisher Priest for whipgrass? Order of Whiteclay for replacement for sigil. Hallow is a replacement for aegis, though it is 1 time only.

In my opinion, it's running a little light on removal right now, so you might consider mainboarding some things like Fiend Hunter, Banisher Priest and Path to Exile.

As you're running heavy on creatures, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben would hurt you relatively little, but that's definitely something to weigh before running.

Alternatively to Thalia, you might consider running some anthems, especially Honor of the Pure. It can get you hitting especially hard with double strikers like Mirran Crusader or Silverblade Paladin, which could definitely be considerations.

I don't see that Dromoka's Command is doing anything special for the deck right now, aside from being a good-ish card. You might also reconsider the inclusion of Gather the Townsfolk and Increasing Devotion, especially considering that you'll generally get more useful bodies for the same cost.

The last thing I would recommend is that you consider the meta modern decks when tailoring your "answers" so you're not left in the dust!

Looks interesting, good luck!

Well, if we have value humans, then we want Angel of Glory's Rise, and if we want that, then we want one or more combos. Honestly, I think the third combo is the only one worth playing, and most of the pieces are good enough by themselves. Inquisitor Exarch and Changeling Hero (which is replacing Banisher Priest in the combo) are not the best, but worth it? I think so.

The first combo requires having an equipment subtheme, and the second requires a trinket subtheme. The third combo is purely humans/angels, right up Bruna's alley.

Also, sorry if my ideas have been less than insightful recently, I've been going through a slump... However, I have tried to be more open-minded than normal. shrug

Nice work. One thing though - am I missing something with Banisher Priest in the combos? It can only target opponents creatures so I don't see how you can use to to flicker Sun Titan or Angel of Glory's Rise

kengiczar, thank you for the appreciation!

NarejED, lol, it's hard to RTFC sometimes lol. Replace all the Banisher Priests with Changeling Hero.

Gates88, oh I though he returned to the field, my bad! Yeah, you're right to replace Lotus Bloom with Lion's Eye Diamond.

Psst, @MagicalHacker: Banisher Priest only hits opponents' creatures.
