Please comment your thoughts.I need to adjust the sideboard and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I'm surprised with all the double strike that you only have the swords in the sideboard. Have you tried them main and just find that with Rancor and the archangel, you are simply better of with tons of dudes?
I love this. Only suggestions is to stick to playsets (Sublime Archangel , Birds of Paradise and card:Avacyn's Pilgrim). I dont particularly like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , i find she's better sideboarded, but i understand she may be there for lack of a 2 drop. also where is Thrun, the Last Troll ?
I like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben because she is awesome vs delver and is a first striker. I also only have 8 cards that she effects and her being able to be pumped with +1/+1 is awesome. I am not running Thrun, the Last Troll because I traded him away and dont feel like getting him back. The Aven Squire and Knight of Glory are decent but after talking to other friends we decided that they aren't that beneficial. Just like Cathedral of War is too slow for the deck too.
Ever consider Champion of Lambholt ? I'm in the process of making GW deck with that as the main win condition. It is pretty potent. I'll post my deck when it's done.
As for your deck, I'd definitely add Sublimes if I had them. Fungal Sprouting would be a killer in your deck though! +1
I have my own G/W/b exalted deck: deck:insert-clever-title. I have come to realize that there are two ways to build this, One involves what you are doing with Blade Splicer and Restoration Angel . The other direction involves a token approach which is amazing with Champion of Lambholt .
To those wondering about Champion of Lambholt 's absence, the reason she is not here (which I agree why you haven't added her senhor114) is due to the fact that Champion of Lambholt doesn't get big enough, fast enough, to matter. More than likely you are going to be swinging with the Golem token or Thragtusk (something expendable) and not going to want to be swinging with Champion of Lambholt .
senhor114, IMO you need more removal mainboard, 2x Dismember is just not enough. A good solution is Fiend Hunter . He doesn't cost more from Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and he can be bounced by Restoration Angel in a pinch to get rid of a bigger threat.
