Renounce the Guilds Discussion

I don't know how I feel about Renounce the Guilds... You could probably take it out for Konda's Banner, which pulls double duty in making cats and pumping cats.

A couple of different options instead of using Altar of Bone, because the way the stack works prevents the trick you want to use it for, are Fiery Conclusion, Collateral Damage, Renounce the Guilds, and Last-Ditch Effort. None of them quite give you the power of searching up any creature card in your deck, but all of them are quite good at removal, or, in the case of last-ditch, can actually just kill someone if you have enough tokens.

Looking at my previous comment, I don't know why I posted All Is Dust when I should have said Scour from Existence so it doesn't hit your stuff (and you only need to take care of Iona).

Other than that:

Renounce the Guilds for some cheap removal.

Revoke Existence, Return to Dust or Altar's Light for some target removal of problematic artifacts or enchantments.

Cloudshift or Long Road Home for some protection.

Warping Wail for about the only counterspell you can get.

What do you mean you don't have enough spells? Half of your deck consists in spells that will trigger Seeker of the Way! He'll work like a charm, trust me.

Regarding Ajani, Caller of the Pride, I'm pretty sure he'll be quite useful! I'd include him, and take out Renounce the Guilds. It's the only card that can become useless in some matches. See, Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares will work regardless of opp's deck colour. Renounce the Guilds will not. Plus, it cannot 'target'. So if an opp has multiple coloured creatures, you cannot choose which one to kill.

1x Dragon Bell Monk
1x Frost Lynx
1x Harbinger of the Tides
1x Man-o'-War
1x Quickling
1x Two-Headed Cerberus

That is a total of 24 cards. Start by adding 5 lands, any that don't come into play tapped. While you are at it, replace thse CIPT lands you already have with any other.

Overall, you want to lower your mana costs as much as possible. True, the CMC limit is 3, but you should not have any card that is above 2 in your deck, except your commander and few creatures.

Creatures (8):
Monastery Swiftspear
Stormchaser Mage
Niblis of Dusk
Mage-Ring Bully
Umara Entangler
Abbot of Keral Keep
Jeskai Student
Sanguinary Mage

11 cards left. We want to churn through our deck and deal some damage:
