The Noble can me interchanged with either card in the Maybeboard
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...

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.

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.
It's in the description "mountains = Duty-Bound Dead" T/O doesn't have the link for the card yet
July 5, 2012 11:27 a.m.
lol. It's ok. Not many people actually read descriptions.
July 5, 2012 11:30 a.m.
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.
I looked over the description but I didn't really understand the duty bound dead thing! Sorry! thought you were using red XD

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
