So I had a bad idea the other day that I'm half convinced might work. The idea is to fill the board with tokens, sac one to any of the numerous sac outlets, and- with a damage doubling source like Furnace of Rath , flash in the general, Archangel Avacyn Flip for a fair amount of damage. Now there's a 6/5 beater on the board and all of my dudes survived the Conflagration thanks to her front side effect. Buff the tokens with Intangible Virtue and/or Glorious Anthem and the buffed army meets little resistance. So here's my question, has anyone run a deck like this and what was your experience? Anyone play against it and how was it?
It really isn't a bad idea. Some people will question your choice of colors but what you are talking about is an aristocrat deck with anthem effects. Aristocrats is a pretty common archetype using free sac-outlets and either lots of tokens or revolving door creatures. Yours is perhaps a unique approach but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I ran decks similar to that but in and . Honestly I'd add in for a few more aristocrat effects.
