No prob man. Most of those cards are in an established g/w aggro deck in modern already, they all are solid stats that have good functionality.

I forgot a few more you could use: Voice of Resurgence, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Authority of the Consuls, Legion's Landing  Flip, Loxodon Smiter, Gaddock Teeg

Black gives you

Castigate

Orzhov Charm

Lingering Souls

The looks good on paper:

Athreos, God of Passage

Blue gives you some upgrades and I guess counterspells if you want those.

Don't need Supreme Verdict

Or Detention Sphere

I'm fine with

Oblivion Ring

Wrath of God

Although Remand is always nice.

Green was really interesting:

Renegade Rallier

Glittering Wish

But it was tough to exclude a lot of good hatebears. But they don't work for this deck.

Qasali Pridemage

Loxodon Smiter

Red has

Lightning Helix

Boros Charm on a 6/6 Ascendant

I shift through the packs and I pick up some common lands that fix the mana, then I encounter a odd creature that I can't really make sense of, until I realize it can technically help me cast my bomb:

Jeskai Mind-Wanderer

Creature - Human Monk

Prowess

: Choose one: Target nonland permanent becomes a colour of your choice until end of turn or target land becomes a basic land type until end of turn.

Where mind is valued over matter, illusions become reality

2/2

((P.S.: What's up with text edit? Italic text I write just disappears and I can't make horizonatl separators anymore?)

The creature fits my deck just okay. It's a bear with two upsides, I'm going to pick it. I'm in my first game and won game one. Then I cast Silumgar again and I get blown out by an Abazan card I kind of forgot about. Design a card that has a similar triggered ability as Loxodon Smiter that hurts me quite a bit.

Tamiyo is by far my favourite planeswalker, maybe even my favourite card in all of Magic. I've fiddled with bant a lot but I never came up with anything viable in modern that can run Tamiyo and isn't just your generic midrange shell. Since bant already has a ton of amazing curve-outs into Tamiyo (Noble Hierarch into Reflector Mage or Loxodon Smiter; alternatively Serum Visions into Tarmogoyf into Thalia, Heretic Cathar are thinkable) I struggle a bit with making a creature up that fits this shell. Between Tarmogoyf, Reflector Mage, Loxodon Smiter, Spell Queller and so many others, Bant has an insane creature toolbox, Bant doesn't fail because of creatures, but because of the extremely weak interaction - Path to Exile alone is rather weak, and Blue's Draw-Go Approach clashes heavily with Green's Tapout philosophy. As such, I don't think I can create a creature that doesn't aleady exist in some way or form, and I'm intentionally going over the top here.


Johnny Baggins, Daydreamer

Legendary Creature - Kithkin (or Hobbit)

Vigilance, Lifelink

When Johnny Baggins, the Shire's Foulmouth enters the battlefield, draw a card.

, : Target creature gains indestructible and gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

, : Target creature gains hexproof and flying until end of turn.

, : Target creature gets +3/+3 until end of turn. You may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield tapped.

Dream, and you may just start believing. Believe, and your work may seem effortless. Work, and your dream may become real.

1/4


Create an absurdly agrissive creature of any CMC you'd like that fits into any aggro shell. It's super amazing if it works, but it has a brutal downside if it doesn't.

Loxodon Smiter is a good consideration... also maybe some landfall would be strong in here like Steppe Lynx or Grazing Gladehart?

Nice deck! As a Selesnya fan myself, I agree with your metagame thoughts. As far as your deck goes, few things:

I would actually prefer having Dryad Militant in the maindeck over Loam Lion. The Lion doesn't benefit from the bonus that Wilt-Leaf Liege provides and Dryad Militant can be a real pain for decks that rely on their graveyard (ex. Snapcaster Mage).

Sunblade Elf isn't a terrible choice, but I would prefer his spot be given to a creature that can help you speed up the game a little. Green doesn't provide much of a flying presence so having a creature like Birds of Paradise I feel takes care of 2 issues: it allows you a flying presence on the battlefield to deal with threats you wouldn't normally be able to deal with, and it also allows you to slap a Rancor on it for a nice attacking option as well (aside from providing me mana of any color!). This comes in handy more than you think, and having a turn 2 Loxodon Smiter can really turn the tide in your favor early on.

Also Voice of Resurgence is a fantastic card and I would highly recommend it, especially over a placeholder like Watchwolf. I'd also recommend playtesting with a Gavony Township.

That's all I'll say for now, as any more comments will have your deck looking exactly like mine, haha.

Modern Thursday 12/4/18:2-2: Testing Ensnaring Bridge and Nihil Spellbomb. They were both epic game changers!

2-1 GW Hatebears: Not the usual Hatebears build the plan for this deck was to play manadorks, then cast Lingering Souls and activate Gavony Township over and over. Game 1 The Rack was faster than them. Game 2, multiple Voice of Resurgence hit me for lethal the turn before I could stabilise. Game 3 was epic. Swamp into Rack, Swamp into Wrench Mind, Swamp into Bridge, Swamp into Soul's Betrayal killing 5 creatures, Swamp into Lily and Smallpox. It was just bad luck that they never saw a Loxodon Smiter or Qasali Pridemage.

2-1 Living End: Opponent saw 4 copies of Ancestral Recall in every game, yep they cast 12 copies...Game 1 their hand was ripped apart for an easy win. Game 2 the recalls found Living End while also always keeping up counter magic. Game 3 was a stalemate, Delirium Skeins turned off their recalls. Cryptic Command wasnt kept up for bridge and was wasted countering The Rack et, al. I sat behind two bridges and two Nihil Spellbombs for an easy win, cracked Spellbomb in response to Living End. They decked themselves. The best game of magic Ive had in a long time.

0-2 Infect: super fast infect deck. Geths Verdict is too slow. They played only the one creature game 1, I didnt see a kill spell, my discard turned on Become Immense, if I had been able to kill he creature or play a bridge it would have been different. Game 2 went similar to game 1, I saw a few smallpox and Geths but they always had an extra creature. Jace flipping was disastrous....

1-2 WUB Control: Game 1 was an easy win, which was bad as I didnt see much of his deck. I only saw Elspeth, Sun's Champion as a win con. Game two I side in needle and name Elspeth... They top deck and play Gideon Jura, and steal the game. Game 3 I dont see and needle or a bridge or a geths, and Jura steals it again (unfortunately I could only find and afford 2/4). I see this game as my mistakes losing he game not anything else.

Placed 7th out of 16.
