Hey, so I'm building a GW Human aggro deck similar to this, and I have just one question. Are the Kessig Cagebreakers working out for you? I've been debating putting them in, but I can't decide if they would be good or not
yes Superpack1 the cagebreakers do help quite a bit especially against control decks that that just destroy all your early game stuff.
Ahh I see, very clever, Sebastes. Have you ever though of throwing in Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to also slow down control decks? Also Silverblade Paladin would be great in your deck-imagine giving the Kessig Cagebreakers double strike, so double the amount of wolves come out every time they attack. And overall, Silverblade Paladin is great because then it can make more of your creatures threats, and double strike scales really well with +1/+1 counters from Gavony Township and Blessings of Nature . 2 2/2 double strike creatures (total of 8 damage), can become 2 4/4 double strike (total of 16 damage) in one turn if you miracle Blessings of Nature . So imagine how out of control that can get with Gavony Township and something like the Kessig Cagebreakers . That's pretty rad if you ask me.
Also, I've found Odric, Master Tactician to be pretty underwhelming. I used to have him in my deck too, but I found that he's pretty situational, and that he's a little too slow. Maybe you've had different encounters, and if you have, more power to you. But I think that maybe you should think about taking him out. Also, this happened to me a couple times at FNM: play Odric, Master Tactician and prepare for the next turn lethal unblockable strike. Opponent plays Zealous Conscripts , steals my Odric, Master Tactician and swings at me for unblockable lethal damage. Honestly, I just started laughing when this guy did that to me, but what I'm trying to say is that I don't like Odric, Master Tactician as a win-con anymore. He gets Pacifism on him or something like that, then you're thinking, "Well, shit." I personally like just smashing through everything the opponent has, hence the Silverblade Paladin , but that's just me.
Also, I'd love your input on my deck G/W Humans & Angels please!
Yeah most of what you say is true. If I had some silverblades I would probably put them in and odric is a little underwhelming. I have been messing around with a Maya version of this deck that is really fun and extremely fast, usually hitting for about 9 on turn 3. I'm using my phone right now so it's more difficult to link it but you can find it on my profile. :D take a look and ill look at your deck.
