Please +1 if you like the setup! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as well.
Sideboard is built to react to the other top tournament decks I have seen:
Control/Removal: -2 typhoid rats, -3 predators gambit, +2 Duress, +3 Faith's Shield
Reanimator: +3 Rest in Peace, - 3 Oblivion Ring
Mill: - 2 Typhoid Rats, -2 Vizkopa Guildmage, +2 Duress, +2 Unburial Rites
Boros: - 2 Duress, +2 Typhoid Rats
Planeswalkers (Jace, Taimyo): + 2 Pithing Needle
I updated this deck from the tournament I competed in yesterday. I finished 4th out of 20 with a few misplays that probably knocked me down from 2nd or 3rd. It's a good deck but it still falls victim to removal pretty easily.
Let me know if you think I can make any other improvements.
I like the High Priest and Frontline Medic combo. I don't use enough creatures to really implement this combo though. But I do appreciate the advice. I also updated the deck to the recent improvements I made after more tournaments.
Please +1 if you like.
What good is Deviant Glee going to do? I don't use red mana.
This deck is basically Orzhov Deck Wins (similar to RDW). I need speed, not control (Sphere of Saftey). I could maybe use one sphere of safety in the sideboard.
Thanks for the suggestions though. I do appreciate it!
I run B/W aggro as well, so I would highly recommend throwing in Tormented Soul . It's simply wonderful to see your opponents reaction when you place a Dark Favor on him followed shortly by Silverblade Paladin , Soulbound to him as well. Yes, I know that's a lot for something that can be torn down fairly easily, but if you draw well, you will have them down to 8 life on turn 3. Beyond my favorite little combo, it's a nice deck!
swap out Dark Favor for Blind Obedience , because: dark favor is not great, think about if they kill your creature before you swing, you just lost one life for nothing, while Blind Obedience can gain you life all game, (after 4 spells you will have dealt 4 damage and gained 4 life while the dark favor can result in just a loss of life, and 4 damage at most since no good deck will allow you two swings with a dark favor'd creature) clear a path for your creatures, and potentialy force your opponent to side in enchant removal.
yeah Dark Favor can give you a big attack but any good deck will clear it before you get a chance to really use it. there is a 3 cost b/w enchantment called Gift of Orzhova i would run over dark favor if you didnt like Blind Obedience
just my two cents
