Hey MegaMatt13,

Great to see you came by to check on my build. Sadly I was out of the country for a long while. So I was unable get back to you. But today I planned some free time and want to work on this deck too. Let me review what you commented;

I have been swapping and changing many equipments, also the less impact full. But after many games I felt that - and I see you are saying partially the same later on - that the low mana equips are not something I am willing to add. Just to storm through the deck. I believe that anything that should be added, should bring something extra to the battlefield.

Trailblazer's Boots and Unquestioned Authority both have been selected before, but I would like to give them a new try.

I am a huge fan of ramping, because more mana is also more options to play the deck faster. If you get some decent extra draws during the game, it would be nice to actually cast and equip them asap. Extra mana gives us edge. Don't you agree?

Thanks for the great imput!

Sram, Senior Edificer, Ghostblade Eidolon, Snake Umbra, Unquestioned Authority, Bow of Nylea, Spear of Heliod, Heliod, God of the Sun, Mother of Runes, Celestial Mantle, Grasp of Fate, Shield of the Oversoul, Dawn to Dusk, Archetype of Courage, Celestial Archon, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Nylea, God of the Hunt, and Spirit of the Labyrinth all work with this deck pretty well. I apologize if I am repeating suggestions, or missed it in your deck. I feel they're inclusion is intuitive however if you want me to elaborate on a card I would be happy to.

Hi, just saw your message on my wall :)

Yes, I have the deck in paper form and play it a lot. It's very effective. The main difference between our decks is that you have fast mana cards that are banned in my playgroup (Sol ring, mana crypt, etc.) if they weren't banned in my group I would totally play them.

My main suggestion to you would be to increase slightly the number of Sram triggers you have to keep the card draw engine humming. Trailblazer's Boots and Unquestioned Authority are two cards I find very helpful for getting damage through. I would also add some of the 0 cost equipment. These are great at powering through the deck, making it more consistent.

In terms of cuts: perhaps Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, and Fellwar Stone. Great rocks in most decks. Sram is so low to the ground they really aren't necessary.

Also I recently cut Argentum Armor. Very powerful but so mana intensive for this fast deck.

Hope this helps!

Debt to the Deathless is yet another huge bomb, the biggest problem with your deck that I see, is a high curve, and not vary much ramp.

Ramp cards I like to color fix (that you aren't running) are: Shard Convergence, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Coalition Relic, Prismatic Geoscope, Bloom Tender, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a good way to get more counters, Sovereigns of Lost Alara can be quite useful if you add a couple more auras, for example: Spirit Mantle, Indestructibility, Spectra Ward, Unquestioned Authority, and Holy Mantle are all great aura's that you should add, maybe even add the new Bloodforged Battle-Axe

So you seem to have a pretty solid deck here. I have some suggestions based on my decks Daxos of a hundred blades and Honorable Combat

For evasion and protection

Spirit Mantle pro creatures and a buff

Steel of the Godhead unblockable and lifelink

Unquestioned Authority pro creatures and a card

Shield of the Oversoul a nice secondary source of indestructible.


Fireshrieker or Duelist's Heritage was kinda surprised not to see double strike on anything else, it's useful enough you'll probably want it on hand if you can't keep Rafiq out.

Concerted Effort or Odric, Lunarch Marshal share all your keywordsInvocation of Saint Traft the timing of this triggers after your single attacker gets exalted so you get all those


Wargate I will often use to get Maze of Ith

Dueling Grounds this one messes up swarm decks like mad and prevents you from getting overrun by a few creatures slightly larger than your exalted support.

Spectra Ward is a little high on the curve, but it's one-sided and +2/+2.. hmm. Also very pretty.

Unquestioned Authority is perfect! guarantees a clean hit, totally on theme, and you even get a card. Might switch out my helmet for this.

Unquestioned Authority is a pretty solid card for licia. Evasion that replaces itself is fantastic
