BudyWolfe, I have thought of Captain's Claws, but it seems like a hard fit into this deck. To make room for it probably means dropping some of the removal and/or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. I could take out some of the Always Watching and/or March from the Tomb, but those cards have proven to be extremely valuable to the success of the deck.

I'll tinker with Captain's Claws and see if there's a way to integrate it. Thank you for the suggestion!

Ok, this looks intesting. Drana's Emissary costs a little much, and needs to stay on the battlefield to have an effect, not great for winning or stalling.

You basically have two options with B/W allies at the moment- the traditional Hada Freeblade/Kazandu Blademaster/Champion of the Parish beatdown. Its pretty straightforwards, and has gained some traction running Collected Company, you'll find examples on this site listed under modern allies.

What it isn't, is budget.

I'd reccomend an etb/flicker deck, as the cards are cheaper, as the diverse common-rarity options keep the price low.

Expedition Envoy/Ondu Cleric/Jeskai Barricade/Lantern Scout/Cliffside Lookout/Cliffhaven Vampire/Kabira Evangel/Ondu War Cleric/Serene Steward/Bloodbond Vampire/Kalastria Healer/Zulaport Cutthroat as core creatures aiming to stall the game, then close out with flicker effects for a lot of etb/ltb effects.

March from the Tomb/Eerie Interlude/Rally the Anscestors/Ghostway/Momentary Blink/No Rest for the Wicked/Proclamation of Rebirth/Faith's Reward/Whip of Erebos/Flickerform/Graceful Reprieve/Return to the Ranks/Makeshift Mannequin/Marshal's Anthem/Stonecloaker to puch out in turns 5-7 with etb triggers.

Some dredge like Stinkweed Imp/Dakmor Salvage/Nightmare Void, Darkblast or Golgari Thug could help provide card advantage throught the 'yard, but would leave you grave-hate vulnerable. The main battle is going to be surviving through and battling against combo, which will always be a weak matchup- but a good sideboard could hate it out with 15 dedicated cards, or focus on other matchups and accept combo as lost.

If you're tempted to take it non-budget Fatal Push is versatile in a lot of other decklists and powerful here. For budget though, Bone Splinters will enable graveyard shenanigans.

All told, nice start and good luck tinkering. Hope this big list isn't too intimidating, almost all the effects are similar for your purpsose- just pick and choose the cheaper ones and test the proportions to make sure your hands look nice and have fun testing!

Thanks for the suggestions. I actually took out Drana's Emissary , Cliffhaven Vampire , Drana, Liberator of Malakir , March from the Tomb. Though Drana, Liberator of Malakir may be a decent add back.

Tragic Slip was more of a budget pick, I'd like Fatal Push, but I'm too cheap.

Stoneforge Masterwork is interesting as well.

Oh yeah, also Drana, Liberator of Malakir and March from the Tomb can be good 1-ofs for curve toppers. I'd also recommend a little removal like Grasp of Darkness or Doom Blade or Bone Splinters (Tragic Slip is also good). And if you're taking cards out to fit these suggestions, I'd start with Kalastria Healer, Bojuka Brigand, and maybe Expedition Envoy. Good luck! and let me know if I can do anything else to help.

Wolfrage76: I agree, Fact or Fiction is meh at best, it's just in there right now till I find something else.

chapman.luke27: I know I have a March from the Tomb somewhere. I gotta find it!

March from the Tomb would be a great add, your best allies are gonna die, you're gonna want them back.

I have found allies quite hard to run in Frontier. They are really weak to red burn. and they can be straight up outclassed by larger creatures. The only way i have been sorta successful is with Collected Company and Dromoka's Command. They are the Allies best friend. And Panharmonicon is amazing. I am trying the Rally the Ancestors card, but it exiles them after the next upkeep. Which kinda sucks, because March from the Tomb doesn't, but its limited to 8 CMC. I have found the best idea is to use all the creatures as blockers, then in one fail swoop, use March from the Tomb or Rally the Ancestors to make a huge one turn hit with Kalastria Healer. Also, Metallic Mimic is crazy good! make the allies bigger and trigger rally!

Check out my decklist for ideas, and shoot me an idea or two. :) Hopefully i got all the formatting correct! lol

And when you have the Kalastria Healer on the field or in your graveyard, you play March from the Tomb which triggers everything, giving you even more life, because everything enters at the same time!!!
