MaStCu Hahaha, Yes! I would love to tell you how the deck plays, that discription isn't too informative :)!

Step 1: Typically, you try to get out Tallowisp asap, but if you don't think it will survive, wait until you can do both Step 1 and 2 at the same time.

Step 2: Cast a Spirit/Arcane spell, search your library for Mask of Law and Grace . Enchant Tallowisp . Sometimes Inviolability /An Umbra works fine, but only in rare circumstances.

Step 3: Cast a Spirit/Arcane spell, search your library for Shield of Duty and Reason . Enchant Tallowisp . Now that that's done, your Tallowisp has protection from everything except white. (Kill white players first because of that)

Step 4: Look around the table, find the most problematic commander. Cast a Spirit/Arcane, search you library for an answer.

Against Disciple of Deceit , Shackles can work, but sometimes Reprobation is necessary. (Use reprobation sparingly, it's your best enchantment.)

Against a Voltron commander, Asha's Favor does the trick surpisingly well. (Assuming that they have hexproof, otherwise Pacifism works fine.)

Against Aggresive decks, Lifelink + Asha's Favor / Ethereal Armor makes it very hard for them to survive.

If you have Plow Through Reito , search up Empyrial Armor for the OTK.

Step 5: You can mostly just start making the rest of your opponents boards unable to attack, while finding Ethereal Armor . Keep in mind that if you need a cath all answer, Reprobation & Choking Restraints are your best bets.

You can also tutor up cantripping auras to make your spirits draw you a card, and give protection to your opponents creatures to make other auras fall off.

Hope this helps!

I recommend Choking Restraints, Inferno Fist, Ward of Lights,Bound by Moonsilver,Floating Shield.

If you want to try something spicy, try rummaging and wheeling with Planar Birth and Land Tax.

You can probable replace Choking Restraints with Bound by Moonsilver which can give a bit more utility.

I would say to switch them for Choking Restraints

WarrKing okay I think that should work. Balanced the mana out a little bit, added one more Glint-Sleeve Artisan, and one more Sram's Expertise. I still worry about removal and my opponent getting too big before I get to Westvale Abbey  Flip. Other than what Lascax suggested, neither of which I own yet, do you see a need for control? I was thinking Aura CC like Choking Restraints and Bound by MoonsilverOr possibly buff and attack with Rabid Bite and Hunt the Weak

Here's some things to consider.

I do agree with some of the other comments about mana ramp spells like Kodama's Reach and Cultivate.

I would remove the Oath of Ajani since you only have one planeswalker and the ++ counter isn't that great. If you're going to expand on the ++ counter theme, then look at Fertilid, Spike Weaver, or Spike Feeder and other cards to take advantage of those counters.

I would also remove the Arrest, Choking Restraints, Faith Unbroken, and Squirrel Nest as they don't really push your agenda. Garruk, Primal Hunter and the Sword of Body and Mind are good cards but they feel out of place in this deck. Consider removing Archangel and Serra Angel since they really don't have much beyond flying and/or vigilence.

Also consider Riftstone Portal to give all of your lands access to both colors of mana. Krosan Verge is a great card for this deck. With a Riftstone Portal in your graveyard, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds can tap for colored mana.

Cartographer or Tilling Treefolk work great with the Krosan Verge, Terramorphic Expanse, and Evolving Wilds. They also help with the Armageddon.

Jotun Grunt and Gurzigost could give you some graveyard recursion.
