Cheap mana cost creatures. Non-creature spells limited to Honors of the Pure (unless Oblivion Rings are subbed in from side board). Thalia is necessary to shut down counters/burn/sorcery/instants and allow initial creatures to last turn three. Optimal opening hand will have two-three one drops, at least one of which is a Champion of the Parish. Game should not last longer than four-five turns, unless board wiped, then Moorland haunts come into play. If game makes it to turn 5+, Hero of Bladehold should finish the job.
