Standard* Aggro Tokens

Description

Moral Support

A B/W tokens deck with an emphasis on Exalted.

An ideal game looks like this:

T1 = any land

T2 = white source, Knight of Glory

T3 = Cathedral of War, Honor of the Pure, swing for 5

T4 = Sublime Archangel, attack with Knight for 8

T5 = Any number of cards: Ajani, Caller of the Pride paired with Doom Blade for a double strike victory / Lingering Souls with a flashback for 4 additional Exalted damage / whatever the situation calls for.

Elspeth Tirel and Angelic Overseer are for the late-game, and the Angel of Jubilation / Honor of the Pure secure a full-swing win if exalted creatures are being spot-removed.

I'd like the sideboard to be able to kick the knights out and go more true tokens if i need to OR switch to Aven Squire if i'm up against token hate (aka Ratchet Bomb).

Comments / Suggestions please :)

trying out Vault Skirge, idea goes to My_ppl_eat_dogs :)

Since your focus is on tokens, i'd add in Doomed Traveler and Vile rebirth. I like the deck and its defintley inspired me so +1

the focus on tokens is purely to get 2-for-1 creatures out, and those cards both only give me one at a time. make sense? if i was running Intangible Virtue instead of Honor of the Pure i might try them out.. thanks for the input!

Looks Good.

I'm not sure about the Entreat the Angels for this deck. I feel it better suited for a deck with more ramp or a controll deck that stalls. Either deck will have more mana than this one.

How about card:Cathars' Crusade? I find it to be rather sick when you have multiple creatures entering simultaneously like from Lingering Souls .

yeah entreat hasn't worked out for me a single time, it was a friend's suggestion (i don't like it lol but i wanted to humor him). card:Cathars' Crusade would be sweet if it weren't so costly to get out, and it's a dead card if i'm not piling on the creatures. i love Angelic Overseer in the 5-slot because she lives through Day of Judgment , which is a common side against aggro/tokens. i'll def try a couple out though! thanks :)

Be careful when you switch your knights up. I'd hate for you to play Ajani and try to -2 Knight of Infamy

hahaha yeah, i've been thinking about that... same goes for if i ran Phyrexian Crusader , which was a thought..... i think since i'm running the Honor of the Pure s i might just need to find something else for the slot that works better. maybe even Aven Squire for Gather the Townsfolk , if people side in token-hate?

What do you think about Duty-Bound Dead ? He is one of my favorite one-drops of the set. Nice provider of exalted, plus a blocker late game.

see, i agree he's a decent one drop, but he's just not nearly aggressive enough for my taste. i think i might play him if my deck were a little slower and more mid-to-late-game oriented, but the thing is, after turn one, i'd rather see any other creature on the topdeck. thanks, though, and i really do appreciate the suggestion :)

i like the deck, but the one card im confused about is Essence Harvest . i would understand if it were instant speed so that it could do massive damage with exalted triggers, but to me it looks like, at best, 5 damage, if you have other bombs in play. while that is pretty good, I feel like it could be better served as something like Blade Splicer : its a human to trigger your Angelic Overseer , two bodies turn 3 to prepare for your Sublime Archangel on the next turn... and blade splicer is overall a great card in any situation.

that's the only thing I can see though, great looking deck!

hrmm, Blade Splicer could be really cool! the first strike makes a great blocker as well.. i'll have to check him out :)

to better explain Essence Harvest , it's designed for use in Main Phase 2: by turn 4 i can be attacking for 8, and by turn 5 i can swing in for 10 or 12 with just one creature (depending on draws of course). but if i have pushed 10-ish damage by that time, it doesn't matter if my 10/9 Knight of Glory gets blocked -- MP2 i play essence harvest for the win! it's only a 2 of because it's sort of an ace-in-the-hole, and not part of the general strategy. i do think i'll see how the splicer does, though -- thanks!

oh wow, I didn't know exalted lasted until the end of the turn... thats really powerful. I take back what I said about essence, thats... darn good haha.

but yeah, blade splicer would be a cool edition somewhere... just not sure where to fit it.

thundernick says... #12

oh haha yeah that'll do it :P splicer is strong (i playtested a few times) but like you said, not much space for it! i'll leave him for other decks, he's overplayed anyway ;D

If you're playing exalted, I would suggest taking out honor of the pure and adding something else, such as Duty-Bound Dead , as it is a 1-drop exalted.

i like the honor because it's a fallback if exalted isn't working out. for example, against a Fog Bank or a deck with tons of weenie chumps. i don't run Duty-Bound Dead because that requires me needing black on T1, and it doesn't work with my mana base. thanks, though :)
