Really nice Idea! But I would protect the attacking creature a little bit better, maybe Ring of Evos Isle or even Swiftfoot Boots is better with hexproof than regeneration. I just think the few counters is worth the risk. Also, you could think about something like Goblin Tunneler . Make it unblockable (it still has less than 2 strength) and then attack and let all your exalted-abilities trigger. Nice Idea btw. Stacked Exalted abilities on a single creature is really nuts...

And I really would keep Sublime Archangel the Noble!

I didn't want to add the third color (red) for the Goblin Tunneler (that's why I put in the Tormented Soul s), but the Swiftfoot Boots does seem like a better option. Sublime Archangel was the original noble because it flies and essentially gives things double exalted (if I'm reading it correctly). But the Silent Arbiter is a good idea if people play with decks that just spawn a lot of creatures and try to swarm. And Battlegrace Angel is a flyer and gives lifelink if you couldn't get a Child of Night out.

Any thoughts on adding Double Cleave though?

Well, then I would add a 4th Tormented Soul ... and yes, you are right. Swarm decks yould be a problem, but you only attack with 1 creature, so you should be able to block if you really need to. Double Cleave is a very strong card in the deks I used it. I'd try it.

And yes, multiple instances of Exalted will trigger seperately. Means: If a creature has Exalted and gains an additional Exalted from Sublime Archangel it will give a single attacking creature +2/+2 until EOT (to be completely correct: +1/+1 and +1/+1) XD

Sensing a lot of DotP13 here. Have to admit, this looks pretty slick to me.

Maybe Duty-Bound Dead (No preview link, how sad.) could find a place here, I personally prefer them to Guardians of Akrasa . That's about the only change I could suggest for now, except for Tragic Slip but I might just be in love with that card.

The Duty-Bound Dead are in the deck as well. Since T/O doesn't have them up yet, I have Mountain s in their spot.

Oh and thanks for reminding me of Tragic Slip , I was thinking of replacing the 3 Castigate s in the side with something.

I feel silly now.

If you have red, then why not try Assault Strobe instead of Double Cleave ?

I don't have red. I play the Double Cleave using white mana. The hybrid split mana means you can pay either color. So I can play 1 and 1 red for Double Cleave or 1 and 1 white mana. Plus, Double Cleave is an instant. So if I have to attack with something besides Tormented Soul it could be blocked. If my opponent decides to just take the damage, then I can put an instant speed double strike on it to get in for more damage and possible end the game. Otherwise, I would just let them block, watch their creature die, and I can still hold onto my Double Cleave for a later use.

But it raises the question: Why do you have Mountains in there in the first place...? Did I miss something or are they unnecessary?

July 5, 2012 11:10 a.m.

Virlym says... #13

It's in the description "mountains = Duty-Bound Dead" T/O doesn't have the link for the card yet

Crivaro says... #14

I feel stupid now... :|

Virlym says... #15

lol. It's ok. Not many people actually read descriptions.

July 5, 2012 11:30 a.m.

Crivaro says... #16

Well, I read it, like most times I visit a deck. I did the mistake AGAIN, see the first post, so this is really embarrassing. But I don't read descriptions twice, so I thought I got everyting I need in mind - actually I didn't. But nice job on the deck, I like the idea.

July 5, 2012 11:35 a.m.

Virlym says... #17

Thanks XD

JamesHughes says... #18

I looked over the description but I didn't really understand the duty bound dead thing! Sorry! thought you were using red XD

July 5, 2012 12:26 p.m.

Virlym says... #19

Oh, sorry. I have 4 Mountain s in the deck as placeholders for 4 Duty-Bound Dead. A 1 drop, black creature. It's a 0/2, with exalted and regeneration for 3 and B.

wow, playing with Sublime Archangel in noble is too powerful. Plus you've got the 'common' Oblivion Ring s. White just seems overpowered in this format. I imagine your opponent will sideboard every removal he has and wait until you cast that Sublime Archangel , but It looks like the deck works quickly without the noble anyway
