Mystic and Llanowar Elves are better than Grazer or Caryatid 99% of the time. The only downside is that Mystic and Elves are super easy to kill. That's the only downside, and while it's a big one and keeps them in check, it's not significant enough to make them worse than much else. The only things better than them aren't really good in Pioneer(Deathrite Shaman) or aren't legal(Birds of Paradise, Noble Hierarch, Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth).

Also, I can definitely see 1x TKS as a tutor target in a Vannifar Pod list. You can run 1 Blast Zone and some Yavimaya Coast as ways to have sources so drawing it isn't a problem. It's a powerful card, and being able to turn any Corridor Monitor or Bounding Krasis into a 4/4 that steals your opponent's best card forever is pretty darn good.

You don't have the support for blinking. If you're going Pod, you can't really be blinking anything. You don't have the slots, and it's a synergy that is only really good if you can jam Restoration Angel or Felidar Guardian, and then you only want 1-2. You can't do either of those here. You can't even use Flickerwisp.

Combat Celebrant isn't a combo with untapping. If you read the text, it says 'if it hasn't exerted yet', which kills comboing.

I'm officially on the hunt for a Carpet of Flowers to replace Noble Hierarch after seeing it in action a few more times.

Finale is busted and will usually close out games. That last screenshot was enabled by a Finale for 20, which then allowed me to untap Cradle and go ham. I'm leaving it.

I'm mainly running Roil for the flavor but he does provide an extra card draw engine late game. He could be busted with Tempt with Vengeance, though.

I'm considering dropping Noble Hierarch for Carpet of Flowers. Seems real good in a 4 person pod.

Hello! Thanks for the comment on my deck! I'll see what I can do.

Ok so I see a lot in the way of aggro and not a lot of answers to problems. Don't get me wrong, dedicated aggro decks can be devastating; but they need to be quick and those cards are almost exclusively in red. This deck looks like it kicks off around turn 3-5 so we want to be able to do stuff in the early game. Bant is a color scheme that lends itself well to defensive tactics rather than harming opponents; this can take the form of protection, buffing creatures, or stalling until our game-plan can get off the ground. Now at the end of the day that game-plan is still "turn creatures sideways", so we want to make sure that the creatures we select are aggressive; but, the control colors in our deck (white and blue) can provide us with a fair amount of answers to problems that we can use both early and mid game to ensure our victory.

So what we want from the deck is:

1) Board Control/Stall Tactics 2) Protection 3) Card Advantage 4) Aggressive creatures

Often times these categories can overlap. For example: a creature with hexproof. That fills the "aggressive creature" and "protection" categories so that means we're getting more value out of just that one card, which is what we want. Variety is both the spice of life and the answer to our deck-building conundrum. So we want to make sure that our card selection is refined. So lets break each category down.

Board Control/Stall Tactics

I love the options Bant gives us for board control. Green has a lot of artifact/enchantment removal, white has a lot of good spot removal in the form of "exile" which gets around that pesky indestructible ability, and blue often bounces things off the board or counters things. So what options are best? Honestly, its up to you. But remember that the more options that a card gives you the more value you get out of it. Here are a couple of my favorite board control cards in Bant:

Authority of the Consuls Bant Charm Cryptic Command Detention Sphere Disallow Dromoka's Command Exclude Krosan Grip Path to Exile Qasali Pridemage Remand Spell Pierce Unravel the Aether

That should give you enough options to play with and see which ones you like best.

Protection

Protection spells are many and can come in many different forms, but ultimately it comes down to making sure our permanents stay permanent. For us this is most likely gonna be about protecting our creatures. Some of my favorite protection spells in Bant are:

Fog Gods Willing Grand Abolisher Heroic Intervention Mark of Asylum Shalai, Voice of Plenty Simic Charm

The longer our creature(s) stay on the field the more likely we are to win.

Card Advantage

This can either mean card draw, digging through our library, or just straight up tutoring. Some good options are:

Ardent Plea Brain storm Curiosity Eladamri's Call Gaea's Blessing Impulse Serum Visions Wargate

By giving ourselves card advantage, we can find solutions to problems a lot faster.

Aggressive Creatures

And finally we get to the bread and butter of the deck, the creatures. Now the mechanic we're working with is the Exalted mechanic, which states that if the player attacks with exactly one creature, then each card with Exalted (including the attacker) will grant that lone attacker +1/+1. This aggro tactic minimizes casualties in battle but doesn't reduce the armies strength during the attack phase. So the more instances of exalted we have the more powerful our lone attacker is. Here are some cards worth looking at into for this combat style:

Finest Hour Invisible Stalker Knight of Glory Noble Hierarch Rafiq of the Many Sublime Archangel

With these creatures at our disposal, opponents will often find it hard to outgrow our aggressive playstyle.

Now keep in mind that the exalted mechanic itself is very aggressive and simultaneously acts as the "buff" aspect of our defensive tactics that mentioned near the top. So we need little in the way actual buffing spells like Giant Growth; that leaves much more room open for including a lot more control and card advantage spells. Ultimately what you pick is up to you but try using the cards I've listed above as the basis of your card selection and go from there. Cross reference which cards fall into multiple categories for the best options possible. I don't want to just straight up give you a decklist, I want you to choose the cards yourself and make a deck that's entirely your own. I hope my longwinded advice helped LOL happy deck building.

Unfortunately, you can't put Noble Hierarch in this deck due to color identity, it taps for white mana as well as blue and green. Try Maraleaf Pixie if you want the blue mana in addition to green.

The_Legionarre Yes i thought of that but consistency won.. :D

RNR_Gaming Yes its similar but with more cruelty in. ;) And it is not the only WinCon. I already have Waste Not on sideboard.

Ensnaring Bridge is vulnerable to artifact destruction so i don't prefer it for now.

Funeral Charm is good instant discard or x/1 creature removal for decks with Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch.

What do you suggest to remove for some copies of Charm?

Thanks both of you for your feedback.

Constant Mists with a Crucible of Worlds + Life from the Loam package is fairly thematic and effective. A Crop Rotation to snag up your Glacial Chasm will do wonders when facing down those pesky aggro decks. I'm also a big fan of Wilderness Reclamation and Quest for Renewal (assuming you can add in more dorks) Noble Hierarch, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Priest of Titania, Fyndhorn Elves and Avacyn's Pilgrim typically get the ball rolling consistently :)

rkjunior, wow, gg! How are you feeling about your inclusion of Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch? Does it feel more beneficial?

I have also considered Lithoform Engine or Strionic Resonator because I do love the trigger twice feature from Ancient Greenwarden and those will give another way to double a trigger.

unwucht, yeah, I’m pretty sure Finale of Revelation is going in at this point and maybe Pull from Tomorrow.
