Perimeter Captain Discussion

In that case, how about cutting one Fencing Ace, one Perimeter Captain and one Plains for the three Doomed Traveler? This replaces one defender with an effective blocker, and keeps all the three drops intact. The deck has a low mana curve, so it should run smoothly on 23 lands.

It looks like you're relying pretty heavily on your Ajani to gain life.

There's several cards you might consider, toward that end, such as Blessed Alliance, Congregate, Rest for the Weary, Perimeter Captain, and Healing Hands.

Rhox Faithmender would be a great asset as well. So would Sunbond and Archangel of Thune

I second what Steeven1 said above. Wall of Omens is a great card. Have you ever gotten Heroes Remembered out on the battlefield? I don't know if I have ever had a game go 10 turns. I would get rid of Lightkeeper of Emeria and Perimeter Captain. You have better creatures in your deck that you could max out instead. Platinum Angel is an awesome card that you have in your Maybeboard. I would have it in my Mainboard. +1 from me!

Thanks for the suggestion and nice words, Haarva91. I've considered adding white for Wall of Omens and Perimeter Captain, though I think it would destabilize my budget mana base. I've gone back and forth a lot over Traproot Kami - it's only better than a Steel Wall if I'm playing against fliers/if I get more than 4xForest down - but adding white would certainly make Traproot Kami much less viable. I've also been thinking about dropping Kin-Tree Invocation, dropping the splash of black and going with a w/g build. Maybe I'll explore that in a new build. Cheers!

Why not just run Lagonna-Band Trailblazer instead of Perimeter Captain? It's heroic, out of bolt range, comes down turn 1 and can hinder most aggro decks.

Hello, KingMoney! Thanks for your feedback.

Emerge Unscathed is indeed essential to the deck, since not only it provides with protection, but also triggers the Heroism ability of Fabled Hero and other heroes like Wingsteed Rider and Hero of Iroas, twice (since it has Rebound).

As for the cartouches, Cartouche of Knowledge is indeed a pretty good choice, and I'm torn between that or continue using the very similar Spectral Flight or One With the Wind (those last two are functionally the same). The other cartouche you suggested doesn't really seem that good for the strategy of the Deck: betting everything on a single super-buffed unblockable monster.

Regarding removal, I already run 1 Oblivion Ring, plus 1 other card that has the same functionally but with a different name: Banishing Light. This is to avoid being cut off by cards like Surgical Extraction, Meddling Mage and other similar annoyances. I also run a Journey to Nowhere as the 3rd targeted removal, since the Deck needs a low mana curve to be aggressive.

As for Perimeter Captain, I realize that's an odd choice for most players. Slippery Bogle doesn't cut it for me, because the deck is mostly white with a splash of blue and no green, and it doesn't further my strategy. Perimeter Captain doesn't either, but it's good for its purpose: warding off attacks to win some time to get Fabled Hero going. Otherwise the Deck would get shredded by aggro red decks. With a 0/4 body, they are hard to top early on, and with two of them on the field you can block with both to gain 8 life. Still, maybe there's a better choice available.

Unless Emerge Unscathed is crucial to the deck, I think Brave the Elements would be sweet in this deck! I would suggest putting Day of Judgment in the side. For your deck, I would suggest Cartouche of Solidarity because it pays for itself with a 1/1 and Cartouche of Knowledge because it has an instant payoff with its cantrip effect. I would suggest less of the instant and sorcery combat tricks to lock down on more aura effects. For removal for the deck, I would suggest 3 Path to Exile, 3 Dismember, and 3 Oblivion Ring because the deck is gonna need a solid base of removal. I would swap Perimeter Captain for 3 Slippery Bogle and a Hero of Iroas. I really like the idea of the deck, but if you wanna go the aura root, I would take a look at the / bogles list that SaffronOllive at MTGGoldfish played.
