Blessed Breath Discussion

Nice deck. I like that you use alot of protections, what means you understand that opponents have point removals too =)
Also, i like tricky cards like Devout Harpist. This can be real headache for another voltrons.
I have some suggestions:
- Soltari Visionary considering you have bunch of protection, this can be nice removal, that is reusable too.
- Cho-Manno's Blessing better then 1 mana protection instants
- How about Standard Bearer instead of Coalition Honor Guard?
- Benevolent Bodyguard better than Blessed Breath or Stave Off, because it can be cast on turn 1 and protect Ace when he enter battlefield on turn 2
- Path of Ancestry because you have alot of humans

To change format hit the edit deck button. Next near the top of the screen to the right of the decks name there will be a drop down menu where you can select the format you want.
Here are a few ways to protect him.
To make sure he resolves/protect him against counter magic:
Once he's in play cast one of these on him to make their spells fizzle or just get them off the stack yourself:
Gain protection: Like the last category these can protect rafiq but they pull double duty by making it such that creature's of that color can't block him.
Plenty of other options too but those are the ones that i'd look at first. Run some of them and rafiq will likely stick around a bit longer.

I've always preferred Brave the Elements or Blessed Breath or Emerge Unscathed to Shielded Passage. Sorin's Thirst is ok if you see a lot of 2 toughness creatures, but personally I'd perfer something less conditional.Asylum Visitor/Call the Bloodline/Blood Scrivener, Imp's Mischief or Geth's Verdict, Night's Whisper, perhaps Plunge into Darkness to dig for answers in an emergency, Ratchet Bomb perhaps, Seek in the sideboard for that one guy playing emrakul, Smallpox perhaps. Tithe Drinker. Theres a lot of fun tools out there, you just have to pick the ones thta your playgroup will enjoy.

Removed 2x Detention Sphere from the main, added 1x Temporal Isolation and 1x Blessed Breath. Sphere is powerful but the 3 mana slot is already full. Isolation adds more protection against aggro (a meta call) and the playset of Breath increases the chances to trigger Tallowisp.

Have you considered taking advantage of the Splice onto Arcane mechanic, since Crack the Earth is a 4-of? My thoughts are Blessed Breath, Hundred-Talon Strike, or maybe even Desperate Ritual. This way, Crack the Earth can trigger Heroic, and you can still cast the other Spliced spell later.

I tried Daybreak Coronet in the non-budget version of this deck, and I must say it doesn't fit a lot. It's a win more card in this deck. It's a fantastic card, but I feel that this is not its right place.
Helm of the Gods is good, but has the downside of not being tutorable. Also, this is a tap out style deck, and if you want to win fast, you'll use all your mana in the first turns; also, if you manage to keep one mana open, you'll likely want to use it for a Blessed Breath instead of the equip cost of the Helm.
Retether is great, but unfortunately it doesn't work with Blessed Spirits. The Spirits trigger on the cast, and the Auras that Retether brings back are not cast. It's a pretty good card, but I don't know if I need it. I'd give a try.
Regarding Geist of Saint Traft, it's just a monster in this deck. It can become huge with a pair of Auras, but the most important thing is that it protects itself with the hexproof. Also note that giving him protection from a color with Blessed Breath will likely make him unblockable. greenwalk_, I made the non budget version of this deck with the Geist. If I remember correctly, I run 3 of them in that list and it's perfect. Feel free to check it out :)
