Seal Away Discussion
1 hour ago
There's a common deck building sympathy that you need AT LEAST 8 sources for each synergy that you're attempting (ideally 12). It looks like you're attempting a Mentor deck, so you need at least 8 Mentor sources and at least 8 Mentor targets. At present you only have Boros Challenger as a source and Swiftblade Vindicator as a target. I would add 4 Sunhome Stalwart and 3 Tajic, Legion's Edge as sources and 4 Healer's Hawk as targets.
You have a lot of cards with narrow applications in your mainboard. I would move Bounty Agent, Seal Away, Deafening Clarion, Response / Resurgence, Banefire, and 3 Gird for Battle to your sideboard. That would free up 15 mainboard slots, of which 11 would be filled by the aforementioned creatures. Use the final four slots on Lightning Strike, which is just an auto-include in any deck playing red.

Hey, KiroiSenko, welcome to TappedOut :) Conclave Cavalier is a good suggestion, the card is definitely strong, but it's not amazing enough to have to change the manabase for it's CMC. It's CMC is very difficult to consistently make. I'm playing Steel Leaf Champion he's a core Elf, many people including myself say he is the reason to play green in Standard. Even with Unclaimed Territory's help (Cavalier is a Knight) it's still too difficult to play both Champion and Cavalier in the same deck, is the problem. Adding Song of Freyalise back into the deck would help.
If I was going to add a card four drop to this deck it would be Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Ajani is very versatile being a counters engine or reanimation of Thorn, Emmara or Collector. He's very good with Collector and Emmara putting counters on either getting Collector closer to trample and giving Emmara more toughness so she can safely attack. I'm currently playing one Ajani in the sideboard, wish I could play more, but can't consistently cast cards.
Lava Coil is going to be a big problem for midrange decks in Standard. It's the card red aggro needed to combat Champion, Rekindling Phoenix and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip. If Cavalier get killed by Coil it's exiled and as a result I don't get the tokens. Loxodon also has 4 toughness, but I got value from him when he ETB since he gives all creatures used to convoke him counters. I'm less upset if Coil exiles Loxodon.
Pelt Collector is an amazing card and I've taken your advice and added a fourth copy cutting 1x Seal Away, thanks. I'm not willing to cut a creature to add a fourth Collector, but cutting 1x Seal is fine. Four Collector does make him potentially worse as a top deck later in the game, but it also increases the consistently, my chances of having him turn one which is more important for the strategy of this deck.
Adding blue for Bant will have to wait until Jan. 2019. Then all ten Shock lands will be in Standard and it will be a wild ride for brewing in Standard. When this deck has access to Breeding Pool then blue and Bant has potential for Negate and Hadana's Climb Flip. Mirror Image is an interesting suggestion, but I don't think it's good enough card to warrant cutting something else. Maybe as a one of.

Alright I'll maybe board both! Last question, Seal Away versus other 2 mana removal.

Thanks. I already have Cast Down as a maybe card. Assassin's Trophy already is a 2 mana destroy effect whereas Seal Away is more restrictive but 2 mana instant speed exile. I'm open to adding Cast Down if indestructible and legendaries aren't too much of an issue.

Hi! Thanks for the help. For you both.
Actually, I'm using proxys and I will play the pre-release to get some of these cards.
And I was wrong. Bounty Agent is not so good for a main deck, but for a side, it's a very good idea. Then, in its place, I decided to put 4 Haazda Marshal. Seal Away was a good idea too, so I'm gonna put 2, and remove 2 Gideon's Reproach. I need to test this.

Like the deck, first of all. When I saw the spoilers,this was the first deck that came to mind for me too. Just wanted to give some suggestions. Knight of Malice is better than Knight of Grace here, because you've only got 2 black permanents to "turn it on". Also, Seal Away is not as good as say Baffling End or Ixalan's Binding because the latter requires a tapped creature and your playing aggro. If their guy is tapped, your already losing. +1!!!

Yeah, it's hard to tell. Path of Mettle Flip is already a sudo Goblin Chainwhirler. Perhaps cutting 1 Seal Away in the Sideboard for 2 copies of chainwhirler where Warboss can still generate a ton of value each combat, guaranteeing an attacker than can act as removal if you have the burn in hand. Hard to judge, but good luck with the deck!
