Vampire Nighthawk -- Flying and Lifelink? Excellent. You want these guys summoned at turn 3 to be your main attacker. They could even be Deathtouch blockers against Flying if necessary, sticking around with Faith's Shield.
Faith's Shield -- I love this card. It protects my low-toughness creatures against direct damage, allows single attackers buffed by Exalted to get through defenses. And of course, it protects against control.
Oblivion Ring -- Yay, control! It's one of my three ways to deal with enemy creatures primarily, and other permanents too if necessary. (I'll O-Ring your O-Ring if you O-Ring my Exalted-buffed attacker!)
Rootborn Defenses -- Counter to sweepers and kill cards. Populate is kind of negligible since I'd probably only use it for another Exalted drop or another Typhoid Rats. (Thanks to user pumpkinsword for the suggestion!)
