T1: Plains, Yoked Ox, Ornithopter, Ornithopter, Ornithopter, Ornithopter.

T2: Forest, Assault Formation. Look at your opponent straight in the eyes. Swing for 16.

It is technically possible to swing for 16 turn 2 in standard!

Side board tech hint. Never against any matchup will you ever need to have 4 Negate and 2 Stratus Dancer in the main deck. So having 3 Negate in the side is pointless. If you want a negate in the mainboard than fine but drop down to only 2 Negate and 1 Stratus Dancer or 2 dancer and 1 negate. 4 total is good. plus add 1 more Disdainful Stroke

2x Disdainful Stroke

2x Display of Dominance

2x Encase in Ice

1x Negate

1x Pearl Lake Ancient

1x Resolute Archangel

2x Stratus Dancer

2x Surge of Righteousness

2x Glare of Heresy

For land you might be good with this

3x Flooded Strand

2x Forest

4x Island

3x Plains

2x Radiant Fountain

3x Temple of Enlightenment

3x Temple of Mystery

2x Tranquil Cove

2x Windswept Heath

You surely don't need 4 of each fetchland with only 7 lands that you can get with them.

Thanks for the suggestions TreeCat!

I didn't think about the advantages of deck thinning, that's a good point... also I could bring out Temple Garden since it is a Forest and Plains! Awesome, I'll add those to my Wish List!

While I love all of the effects of Wilt-Leaf Liege I'm trying to keep this deck strictly Humans with supporting Angels. A lot of my cards require synergy with other Human cards. So if there a card similar to Wilt-Leaf Liege but a Human instead of an Elf? If there is I might consider it!

Destrian on Avacyn, Angel of Boardwipes

Having played both Extraplanar Lens and Caged Sun, I strongly recommend against Extraplanar Lens. You're just throwing a Plains away against any competent player, and it sets you back to get you ahead. Avacyn likes having lands in play (under your control, at least).

You could consider cutting Caged Sun if it's a bit slow. I've done good work with it. Just replace it with something reliable like . . . just noticed you aren't playing Mana Vault.

I really need Ravages of War. Overpriced card is overpriced.

NikDa on WBU ...first attempt at a deck - Help Needed

First, you may want to narrow the colors you are using. I'd choose either B/W (Black and White) or U/W (Blue and White).

Then look for synergies. Cards like Ojutai Exemplars and Myth Realized get better when you cast non-creature spells (Instant, Sorcery, Enchantment, or Artifact) such as Pacifism or Secure the Wastes.

Generally, you want consistency in your deck, and you want to be able to draw your Win Conditions* in every game. This means that you probably want up to 4 copies of your important cards. This probably means that you will want to buy more copies of certain cards, which can be done on sites like Amazon and TCG Player, or at your Local Game Store (or LGS). The only cards you are able to have more than 4 of are "Basic Lands," which are Swamp, Plains, Island, Mountain, and Forest.

*Win Conditions are things that if your opponent isn't able to deal with, you are likely to win the game. (Exceptions do occur.)

bigguy99 on Need help with abzan kids

Let's get one thing straight: that's a Modern deck listed as Standard. Fix that.

As for the deck itself, there are way too many things you're trying to do. Abzan "kids" implies the curve topping off at Siege Rhino, so I don't know why you have 7 mana cards in there. Next, you need to decide if you're trying to do dredge stuff or just aggro - Grisly Salvage does not belong in an aggro deck since it, by itself, does not do anything but get you one card and get rid of four others that were more than likely gas so you're better off just drawing anyway. Unburial Rites is also pretty shitty here, as well as Treasured Find, but I do see the synergy you're trying to get at it with them. Lastly, you absolutely need basic lands - Plains, Forest, and Swamp, more specifically.

What you need to go look at is some successful Abzan lists and see what they put in, and more importantly see _why_ it's in there.
