Arrest Warrant

Standard G/W/U (Bant) Humans

topshelf7710 Score: 8


Description

The Azorius Senate joins the fight alongside the humans of Innistrad. This is a re-imagining of my green-white humans deck that I've been running for the last six weeks or so.

The addition of blue helps to slow this deck down a little and mess with the opponent with detain.

Updates

Playtest Update — Oct. 8, 2012

I'm fearing that this deck has no long game to speak of. I was playtesting on Cockatrice earlier, and got run over by a deck running Trostani, Armada Wurm , Thragtusk , Jace, Architect of Thought , and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad . Once they got set up, it was pretty much over. I need to either speed this up so that the long game doesn't matter, or give it a little more range. I welcome suggestions to accomplish either. Thanks!

The one thing i dont understand are the 2 Mayor of Avabruck. Have you ever thought about Elder of Laurels? This is just my opinion, its pretty solid as is. +1 good sir

Oblivion Ring over Arrest . The ring can get rid of creatures or planeswalkers or enchanments. So much better at the same mana cost.

Oh and try to put in Rancor somewhere. It only helps.

I really like this deck idea. I am definitely interested in hearing how effective this deck is for you. I really like the idea of the detain mechanic. I feel like it could cause your opponent to really frustrated as well as clearing the path for a pumped up Champion of the Parish . A card you may consider adding is Inaction Injunction . It is a good way to slow down your opponent as well as get card draw. Perhaps if you need to drop a couple Gather the Townsfolk for it? Perhaps even Cloudshift to combine with Fiend Hunter to exile two creatures. A good blue card I would keep in mind for this deck is Arctic Aven . I think this card will be used a lot in the Azorius guild due to is getting the +1/+1 effect and possibly having lifelink. I would also consider +1 Mayor of Avabruck  Flip and -1 New Prahv Guildmage . The +1/+1 to all your humans is a very nice buff and I personally would want to draw him every game because of it. The only thing I really would be worried about is mass board clearing. card:Judge's Familiar in the sideboard for Doomed Traveler would probably be a good idea. +1 and keep my posted on your success!

If you want a faster win condition, then play Champion of Lambholt because constant human flooding/Rancor/Mayor gives all your creatures unblockable.

Ethereal Armor and Rancor on an Invisible Stalker cant get too much faster.
