Another Friday, and I believe I'm much more prepared to kick some ass at FNM with this build. It is more quick and aggressive now, and the beats just don't stop!

i would take out the revenges for 1 each of thragtusk and restoration angel. that combo with trostaniis just too good to only have 2 of each. then add 1 more of trostani and 1 wolfir. otherwise i like the ramp and potential bigness of this deck!! +1 from me

I hear what you're saying, but I can't escape the evidence that I keep seeing during playtesting: Revenge of the Hunted is the end of the game, with me as the victor... like, every time I use it!

Simply having a Silverblade Paladin bonded to a Wolfir Silverheart means that Revenge on a mana dork equals 30 unblockable damage!

My brain must insist that its really (6x2)+(8x2) = 28. I'm all for hyperbole as a persuasive instrument . . . but math is truth in magic.

I included the two damage the Arbor Elf would do after getting blocked by Hollowhenge Beast ... whistles

Nice catch though, math is king and truth is its crown. +1 to one of your decks, sir!

Seems very powerful. My concern from my few play tests is end-game you don't have too consistent card draw and mana dorks are near dead draws, Collective Blessing may make them useful, but only when you draw them. +1 though, and check out my deck deck:populate-everything

I would take out Collective Blessing . I don't see the magic word that starts with 'T'.

Heh heh, I believe you'll find that word on Revenge of the Hunted ... The Blessing is currently in there to try and make something of my mana dorks in the later game, and though it is very expensive to cast, my ramp can often get me there pretty easily.

I think that they will eventually come out, especially if I replace the Creature Ramp with Farseek and Selesnya Keyrune to avoid sorcery-speed removal that cuts my manabase.

LOL, thanks... it was pretty pompous of me to claim. Now I have to make a new deck to try with non-creature ramp, which might even work better!

Bad FNM, doing a major deck overhaul. This is the original deck, but I didn't play with four Temple Garden s, and I had mana problems. The Gavony Township colourlessness and the Arbor Elf s didn't work well together at all.

4x Arbor Elf

2x Armada Wurm

4x card:Avacyn's Pilgrim

2x Elvish Visionary

4x Restoration Angel

4x Silverblade Paladin

2x Thragtusk

4x Wolfir Silverheart

Land (22)

6x Forest

2x Gavony Township

6x Plains

4x Sunpetal Grove

4x Temple Garden

Instant (4)

4x Cloudshift

Sorcery (4)

4x Revenge of the Hunted

Enchantment (2)

2x Collective Blessing

Sideboard (18)

4x Rest in Peace

4x Selesnya Keyrune

2x Selesnya Charm

4x Farseek

4x Loxodon Smiter

Maybeboard (5)

1x Strangleroot Geist

1x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

1x Ground Seal

1x Mayor of Avabruck  Flip

I will archive this when I post the new deck.
