To explain the deck. You use your draw/discard spells to throw anything you'll be needing later in to grave. I normally hit the refurbish turn 4 or 5 with GPG in grave. Then we start having fun.If you have the celebrant in grave, you reanimate and swing, declaring to exert him (if you have a minister on board, after the exert he will untap assuming you tapped him prior in turn, then before proceeding to next combat activate the minister again to hopefully get more celebrants in grave). Now once the celebrant is exerted you may take an additional combat step, so you get to activate GPG again, and with multiple celebrants in grave, you can get up to 5 extra combat steps! "So what you're telling me is that you made a STANDARD DECK that consistently hits turn 4 combos that include EXTRA combat steps?"Yes. Now if you know you can't win the turn you go off but have at least two combat celebrants on board, be sure to leave one of them untapped off the exert trigger so that way you can do it all again next turn. (Exert reads they won't untap but they untapped themselves). The SB has had a lot of thought put in. In this deck you don't want to side out of creatures so you must have multipurpose creatures. Chaos maw qnd cataclysmic for example are both boardwipes and creatures. Very nice!The Honor guard is something people at my lgs are questioning, and, well, I understand it stops my etb triggers, but it also stops hostage taker, kitesail freebooter, and energy cards from activating. And let me tell you; nothing sucks more than having a kitesail freebooter steal your refurbish and completely stop you. Or having a hostage taker steal your GPG. My worst match is consistently the esper GPG deck, and honor guard reduces it to a straight aggro match, which you win every time. And that's the deck! I hope you all have fun and remember me when you win your local FNM's! Feel free to hit that upvote button to spread the word!

So I've done testing at my local FNM and at PPTQ. The impression the deck left on ppl went more noticed than my record which 2nd at FNM consisting of 24 players, and unfortunately 11th at the pptq. Many of the ppl at my LGS have began asking me for permission to run the deck because it was "consistent" and "more aggressive than ramanup". Of course I gave permission. I was honored. They even went so far as to add small tweaks (saheeli). The only matchup I actually lost to was Esper GPG. Awkward, I know. But after fixing my SB to deal with the meta a little better, I feel I've come up with the perfect blend. Before I had too many spells SB and not enough multi-purpose creatures. I'll keep everyone and anyone posted on my future endeavor with this deck. I hope you all see me in the top 8 list at the GP in February.

So after the new additions, esper gift is no longer a problem. I have had no trouble against any meta decks. Not even their typical GPG side in helps.

Be sure to keep it so no one at your local FNM remembers Lost Legacy exists.

Actually, thinking on it, have you tried Nimble Obstructionist to replace Tocatli Honor Guard? You have to keep mana up for it, but you can flash it in and it doesn't counteract anything else in your deck; as well, cycling it for its ability gives you another creature to reanimate.

Watch out for that one guy that runs Dispossess in his sideboard. I got blown out running a gpg deck when he got it off really early.

So fun story, I actually got dispossessed twice at my PPTQ and just hard castes everything and still won. It was a long game but still lol and nimble obstructionist isn't a bad idea.... I like the way you think. Plus it's a flyer and the meta seems to hate flying right now.

I like it. I play a version that's a little more budget friendly and has had some good results.
