I think Rancor would work better than Rhox Charger when it comes to giving trample. First, it can be cascaded into, while Rhox Charger cannot. Also, Rancor is a lot more resistant to removal than Rhox Charger is, and finally, Rancor 's +2/+0 power boost is better than the +1/+1 you'd be getting from Rhox Charger 's extra instance of exalted.
Oh. Rancor also costs 3 less.
@Jon1337 maybe. I like the card but Every card but lands in this deck have exalted.
@vishnarg If you read the deck description, I specifically went into detail about why I'm not running that card.
@aeonstoremyliver I hadn't payed attention to the cards I put in the sideboard lol. But I'm on the fence about Knight Exemplar . What do I take out for it? and The fact that it doesn't come standard with exalted is kind of eh. That and Not every creature is a knight. The Important ones are but not all of them. If it was available for cascade from Ardent Plea I would probably be more likely to run it but i'm not sure yet.
I think you need to focus less on exalted triggers and more on what would get you more wins quicker, I think Akrasan Squire and Ethercaste Knight are great but underwhelming cards. Running a set of Birds of Paradise could help get out expensive pieces a turn earlier. A couple Wall of Denial could really just make this deck unattackable. Bant Charm is also a great utility card at your disposal.
Giltspire Avenger seems like a really good 3-drop to have, I'd run it over Rhox Charger . Qasali Pridemage is also a modern staple card, very useful to deal with artifacts or enchantments, while still buffing with exalted, maybe put them in the sideboard.
I like running Jhessian Infiltrator in exalted decks as well, sure she doesn't have exalted herself, but she's a guaranteed unblocked swing which is great to have. Maybe Invisible Stalker is better with the hexproof, but they are something to consider. Artful Dodge might also have a place.
Stoic Angel is a pretty good card for exalted decks, though your 4 drop slots are getting a bit cramped, Silent Arbiter is also a really good idea. I think including one of these cards will help put your opponent on very uneven ground when It comes to attacking.
Okay so these are the changes madeMain board:
-4x Akrasan Squire -4x Ethercaste Knight -1x Finest Hour -1x Sublime Archangel -3x Rhox Charger +3x Rancor +1x Silent Arbiter +4x Birds of Paradise +2x Invisible Stalker (hexproof made it overtake Jhessian Infiltrator ) and +3x Qasali Pridemage
Thoughts on the deck now? It seems slightly slower to me but it will most likely hold up a bit better against a wider variety of decks. I'm wondering If I should remove Mana Leak from the sideboard and replace it with maybe 2x Bant Charm and 2x Oblivion Ring ?
