Thanks for your comment, SaSSolino8! The Story Circles are a little slow, yes, but I can generally keep attacks down to 2 or 3 creatures maximum thanks to Ghostly Prison. Runed Halo has its uses, yes, but Story Circle's versatility makes me like it much more.

I run a similar build and was wondering: are the Story Circles a little too slow? You need to sink a lot of mana into them if the opponent attacks with multiple creatures.

Also wouldn't Runed Halo be better in almost any occasion?

Maybe Impact Tremors could become something more protective like Assemble the Legion, Ghostly Prison, or something like Oblivion Ring or Runed Halo. If you drop tremors, Norin could become Goblin Guide.

Have fun brewing!

Yeah i hear ya, but cards like Runed Halo can really help you catch up. Comes very handy vs Goblin Guides or other aggro 1 drops, plus with leyline youre getting alot of protection against burn. Prison on 3 can be too slow vs infect, sure, but i still think its a good card. I see your point tho. This deck is pretty interesting, I might take the basic shell and make my own version xD

Entrei, Suppression Field works directly against Story Circle, because Story Circle's ability is an activated ability that is not a mana ability. Stony Silence and Runed Halo are purely sideboard cards at best, and Aven Mindcensor is meant for hatebear type decks. theres a reason my Story Circle deck uses protection from colors. it simultaneously protects from removal spells and creatures, allowing me to block with impunity or attack unblocked. for example, why would i use Runed Halo to declare Death's Shadow when i could just play a Mirran Crusader and possibly block to kill it while remaining immune to the Abrupt Decay that would destroy the Runed Halo?

Hmm... you could go Story Circle, but instead of pro color creatures run Suppression Field, Stony Silence, Aven Mindcensor and Runed Halo

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, -Orvos-! 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.
