multimedia Yeah sorry about that, I'm still going back and forth between the cards trying to debate whether to have Call to the Feast and or to leave it out. Will have to look for Shefet Dunes. Thanks, now I know to switch out Queen's Commission for feast and Bishop's Soldier + lands to help. Thank you, helps out alot. :)

Thoughts: Paladin of Atonement - This card is here because it might, over time get probĺematic for red(it gets bigger and in dying gets me life) but i haven't tried it yet. maybe the deck would be better of with either Bishop's Soldier, Dusk Legion Zealot or Oathsworn Vampire

Jesse87 That looks a lot better. Also, good idea with Heartless Summoning. You could replace Sadistic Skymarcher with Bishop's Soldier. Costs 1 less and all you give up is flying. Add 3 of those and then replace the 3 Shalai, Voice of Plenty with 2 Lyra Dawnbringer maybe?

This deck needs more consistency. The best way to do that is to increase the number of cards to 3 or 4 of that card.

Also, the deck has too many cards at a high mana cost without the proper support. You either put in more cards to stall the game longer until you get to later turns or you remove several of the higher cost cards to make the deck run faster.

I built a deck based on some of the cards you chose and recommended several other cards.

23x Plains

3x Duskborne Skymarcher

4x Skymarcher Aspirant

4x Adanto Vanguard

2x Bishop's Soldier

3x Stormfront Pegasus

4x Legion Conquistador

2x Serra Angel

1x Victory's Herald

4x Vampire's Zeal

2x Slash of Talons

3x Impeccable Timing

3x Queen's Commission

2x Forsake the Worldly

Hi, it seems your deck is a little light on card draw and mana ramp. If I were you I would cut cards like Chaplain's Blessing, Bishop's Soldier, Duskborne Skymarcher and Rest for the Weary for Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, maybe Read the Bones or other card draw cards. I know it sound weird but you will probably need some board wipes to, try Hour of Reckoning. You might need to cut and a few more cards and add more card draw and mana ramp (suggested 10 cards of each, I know it sounds like a lot but it will help your deck run smoothly). I hope this helped, I love the deck.

Ok. Also, Gifted Aetherborn is better then Bishop's Soldier in my opinion. Amazing 2 drop with deathtouch, and I suggest you get a couple if you can

As you already said, this deck struggles against Control.

It also has problems against Aggro decks that can pump Creatures out faster than it.

Here are some suggestions.

Decommission would be better than Fragmentize - it can get rid of Torrential Gearhulk, and God-Pharaoh's Gift

Harsh Scrutiny is another excellent Sideboard card, but I don't know what it could replace. Keep it in mind if you find that one of the cards in your Sideboard is underperforming.

The way to address both Aggro and Control is to have more Creatures that come out earlier on your curve, and have better value.

At the moment you have a whole lot of 1/1 Creatures in the early to mid game. If your Opponent gets 2/2 Creatures on the board, or bigger, you can't hold them back.

Have a think about replacing Call to the Feast, Legion's Landing  Flip, and Queen's Commission with Gifted Aetherborn, Famished Paladin (excellent as an early blocker), Oathsworn Vampire (doesn't matter a great deal if it comes in tapped as you can't attack with it the turn it comes in - its recurrence is intensely irritating to Control in particular), and Bishop's Soldier.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose could also find a place in this deck. If you have more early Creatures it can easily replace Martyr of Dusk, which is really not that good.

Let me know if you make some changes, and I'll take another look at this.

Oh, I forgot some Bishop's Soldiers might help with early game blockers, and they have lifelink too!
