Enchanted creature gets +2/+0 and has trample.
When Rancor is put into a graveyard from play, return Rancor to its owner's hand.

I saw Don't Touch my Spirits (Turn 5 Win) about a week ago to see what else you made and i would definitely consider trying that sometime soon. I love blue/black but I do like blue the most.
I played your deck against three other decks last night, i had my friend try my deathtouch first strike deck (my first deck lol) and the DT/FS didn't stand much of a chance because it could'nt come near 20 damage or get the Viridian Longbow out without being counterspelled before it got milled to death.
Then i had him use my previous favorite deck i own Fire Walk with Me which got destroyed for a very different reason. It was made by Skulloelegy not me and it's such a fun deck to use, so check his deck out too! :) If he used a Mimic Vat I usually could send it back to his hand with Cyclonic Rift or Into the Roil (depending on which i took for the game)and then use the opening from that do to play anything i want while he had to wait to bring the mighty Mimic Vat back next turn. Also Flamekin Harbinger brings a chosen elemental to the top of deck and when i see him do this i can mill even just one card that turn to make him not get the elemental he chose. Not to mention the fact that that deck has only 2 or 1 of most "power' cards so most games I simply accidentally milled his best cards lol.
The last deck was an VERY early game mono green aggro/combo infect deck that is my friends deck. I'd say it was about 50/50 on who won. When he did win it was usually because he would either make one of his creatures a 13/13 using things like Invigorate, Mutagenic Growth, Rancor, etc. on turn 2-3 and when that happened it was hard to win past that turn especially if he was able to give it trample too or i didn't have the counterspells i needed. But after that he would have to rely on using Apostle's Blessing to break through my defence unless i could save a Negate to use on it.
Well sorry for the long post, and I hope this helps! As you can probably tell im a little more new to Magic than you, started actually this summer, so we don't have "highly competitive" decks but that being said when your deck strats winnign it rarely can be stopped so im sure this could be competitive level. I'm on a budget as well and i'm very happy with my purchase, I'll test it against more "Meta" decks soon and i'll be watching your blue/white deck for the changes. Sidenote--- Altar of the Brood is my favorite card ever xD
Darksteel Plate would likely serve Autumn well.
Thank you! I like Rancor just clean forgot about it :) Your deck seems good too, I have taken a look at it and upvoted it :)
Nice! I love wolf decks! Make sure you try out Rancor, it's amazing.
This is my take:
Please let me know how it goes if you take the deck to FNM.
Stompy VS Zoo: game 1 Zoo was able to slowly overpower the force of the Stompy monsters. Game 2, Thrun, the Last Troll with double Rancor quickly put the game away. Game 3, Stompy had a large flow of creatures that crushed mine.
So that makes TristanTaylorsVoice your Champion, taking out me, TheGamer out in the finals. Congrats to you Tristan and your Mono Green Deck! I will post another forum in the Challenges and Articles Section, but I'm not sure if it will fire.
No Assault Strobe ? If not that, then maybe Battle Mastery . And you NEED Spirit Mantle . The only way your creatures will die is via boardwipes or (more commonly) combat. Get rid of the combat element, and you're golden. It doesn't boost your creatures, but it keeps them around.
And I would run more Silhana Ledgewalker , maybe even 4 of them. Sure, it comes down turn 2, but that evasion is almost impossible to pass up. Otherwise your Slippery Bogle with 2 Rancor on it just gets chumped by an elemental from Young Pyromancer . Sure, they lose 4 life, but you've lost tempo. But if you have a Ledgewalker out, it's practically untouchable (as far as I know, very few competitive tier 1 decks in modern run flying, save burn decks with Chandra's Phoenix and the like).
You've got a pretty kickin' deck here, man. Great job!
I think replacing 4 to 6 of the lands with fetches would actually make it THAT much faster and consistent. An Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth couldn't hurt either.
Liliana of the Veil would also be a powerful addition, but Smallpox could replace her in the meantime.
I can see this deck having issues with UR Delver, UWR Control, any turn 1-3 combo deck, Planeswalkers and Hexproof.
I keep wanting to add Green to this for things like Lotleth Troll and Rancor but I think that's just me.
However, if i were you, I would make some rather huge changes, and take out:
Nissa is bad, like really fucking terrible, even when she's played in an elf deck. Your deck is not even that, making her all the more horendos. All she will ever do for you is gain you a little bit of life, nothing else, not worth the mana, and by far the worst card in your deck.
All the ramp cards are of cause good card, but they does not support the synegy of an aggro deck.
and you just have better options than Quest for the Gemblades
Giant Growth is good, but I have a better option for you.
