Tokens, Tokens Everywhere, and Not a Life to Spare


Uberryans Score: Unrated


Hello, and welcome to my first true attempt at a standard legal deck! All ideas and comments are welcome, however, I will say that I want to keep this deck rotation ready, so no scars or m12 please. Now onto the point of the deck!

My idea for this deck is simple: Tokens, tokens everywhere. We have many different cards to create them: Captain of the Watch , Captain's Call , Attended Knight , Geist-Honored Monk and Talrand, Sky Summoner . From there, we get some anthems out to make the creatures even worse. We have Intangible Virture, Captain of the Watch , and Favorable Winds . Some explanations of some card decisions follow.

Akroma's Memorial : Now Favorable Winds affects my Soldier tokens too! It gives me some other nice bonuses to boot.

Goldnight Commander : One drop of Captain's Call gives all my other creatures +3/+3. Not bad in my opinion.

Oblivion Ring : Some simple removal goes a long way.

Ghostly Flicker : Flicker in my Captain of the Watch , and look at all the creatures I have! Also, using this on Vessel of Endless Rest can help to counter the inevitable Golgari decks that will run rampant once Ravnica comes out.

Odric, Master Tactician : Oh look. I win.

Geist-Honored Monk : I initially had a Crusader of Odric to fill this roll, but the Monk here provided far more synergy with the deck. The simple fact that I now have more flying creatures allows me to use my Favorable Winds even more.

Haunted Guardian : One of the lowest drops I have in this deck. It is a great early game defensive item for me so that I can eventually get my tokens rolling without too much worry early game.

Again, let me know what you think. Thanks for anything!
