Runed Halo Discussion

Sikter to be honest, I've played around 10 games in mtgo and lots of games against my own decks, so I can't really give any statistics about anything. I've had all my time go to my newborn so mtg has been cast aside for a while.
As for making it more competitive, bring in 4x Marsh Flats and 2-4 Windswept Heath (or other white fetch) and add Fatal Pushes. Don't up the Bunrei amount. Replace Day of Judgment with Wrath of God, Extirpate with Surgical Extraction. Also include things like Stony Silence, Runed Halo, Rest in Peace and Leyline of Sanctity in the sideboard (and further fine tune it).
I'm glad you like it and honestly this is a good base for building BW tokens, no matter which way you start to evolve it. Like straying from the wincons I got now, with cards like Bitterblossom and Dark Confidant together with Vault of the Archangel and Sorin, Solemn Visitor.

Thanks, ! Not a lot of great tutor options I can find, so I added 2x Tamiyo's Journal. That said, Runed Halo can target Manabarbs, so even though it won't force damage, it could be very hard for opponents to do anything.

I would recommend throwing two copies of Runed Halo into sideboard, maybe take out Izzet Staticaster and Wear / Tear. Also remove Disdainful Stroke and up the count on Surgical Extraction and Supreme Verdict. It looks like between the planeswalkers and instants, especially with Snapcaster Mage, you have a good bit of removal and counters, if you're looking for two to cut I would cut Lightning Helix. Granted I don't play much red but these are my thoughts. good luck!

This seems weak to burn since Lightning Bolt etc. isnt combat damage, maybe Leyline of Sanctity would be a good option. Even better than one turn damage prevention is pillowfort cards like Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety. you can mix that with cards like Ensnaring Bridge and Runed Halo, Nevermore and be alot more successful. Its a cool idea, and Azors elecutors is a neat card, but Azorious pillowfort decks might be a stronger direction to aim for.

I think mono- Pillowfort sounds like what you're looking for. Ghostly Prison, Gideon's Intervention, Runed Halo, and either Enduring Ideal fetching Form of the Dragon or Sigil of the Empty Throne to (eventually) win the game.

I'm not sure I would play the combo as there isn't much at this stage I personally feel needs to be dropped prior to testing. I would definitely test the combo though I think it would make the deck clunky and take away from some of the prison aspects.
For example, Nevermore stops a tron finisher, Grapeshot, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (you likely lose if this card is played), Empty the Warrens, or any number of finishers. I don't think a combo that may or may not be assembled is worth losing that but that is just me, as I said it is worth testing but the cuts you are making feel like the only options at this point before testing, though I feel Runed Halo is pretty much a necessity in the deck and something else would need to be cut, maybe 1 Luminarch Ascension and an Eidolon of Blossoms.
