I was tired of playing some of my other decks, so I decided to throw something together for an FNM win-a-box competition in Pioneer. I just picked some cards that I have enjoyed playing, like Always Watching, Lyra Dawnbringer, Declaration in Stone, and (my personal favorite) Resplendent Angel, and I built around them. I didn't expect to do too well, but I thought at least I could have some fun.

I went 3-1 and won FNM! Okay, full disclosure: there were only 13 players (and a couple dropped after the first couple of matches), and nobody played Lotus Breach or Dimir Inverter, so I got pretty lucky just with that. I beat mono-red (mostly goblins?) 2-1, I lost to a kid (11 or 12 years old) playing GW Sram auras 2-1 (he played very well, had a great deck, and just nut draws-- 4 copies of Ethereal Armor on turn 4 (!!!) during our first game; the kid knew his deck and how to play it-- good for him!), beat GW tokens, and then beat a very good GW Sram auras player/deck. Five people were 3-1, so instead of playing off, we just decided to split the winnings and I came away with 8 packs and I pulled Embercleave and Brazen Borrower, so I was just fine with this decision. Turned out I was the first out of that group, so first place overall! :-D

It's a fun deck, but I don't know how well it would do against Dimir Inverter or Lotus Breach. I had a lot of fun playing it and may play it again in the future. We'll see.

Some suggestions if you decide to play it:

Yes, I know it has 61 cards, and I'm fine with that. If it bugs you too much, probably trim a Benalish Marshal or pull Archangel of Tithes.

Archangel of Tithes would probably be better in the sidebaord and brought in against tokens or similar, replace mainboard with maybe Conclave Tribunal.

I really liked Benalish Marshal, but there may be better cards than this. I love the +1/+1 anthem effect, and it definitely helped, but I also sided this card out the most because all of the fliers were more effective in combat. Maybe only 2x Benalish Marshal and 1x Unbreakable Formation and an additional Lyra Dawnbringer (for 3x total) would be good.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty very seriously annoys opponents! Great card!

Probably add 3x Damping Sphere to the sideboard for Lotus Breach matchups.

Always Watching, Declaration in Stone, Resplendent Angel, and Gisela, the Broken Blade were the all-stars of the deck, pretty much in that order.
