I’ve played a number of games now and the deck is a lot of fun! This is the first deck (basically) of mine that has counter-magic in it, so I’ve had to reassess my playing habits, but otherwise it’s loaded with weird interactions that sort of pilot themselves. The commander is really important to get out there, as it will build you a 2/2 Army pretty promptly, and you need to draw a lot in order to get a good amount of theme on the table. Confessor matches up nicely with the draw/discard effects, and your first clue on your turn will get you two cards each turn. The color-hate (like Justice and Sanctimony) can be sort of feels-bad so a few of the games I’ve just sat on them (only justice, come to think of it). Library of Leng and Ivory Tower are always a great team, and Island Sanctuary is buttressed well by drawing on other people’s turns. The downside I hadn’t considered with that, though, is you’re still pretty weak to flying. I managed to use Abbey Matron in the best (only?) way, blocking and then pumping, which sort of felt like unlocking an achievement. Restore the Peace is great both against tokens that are beating you up AND against big baddies that block your 2/2s. Martial Law is one of the best answers to fliers and other trouble, almost like an Oblivion Ring that you can re-target every turn. This post is getting pretty long, so I’m going to wrap it up... but I think you get the notion ;p Thanks for asking MagicMarc!!

That being said, solid includes in general include Abbey Matron , Brightling , Ensouled Scimitar (probably too slow but hey, +5/5 is wicked), if you're up against someone going wide, Give No Ground could be good, Honor Guard is really not bad, Might of Oaks is wicked, Ornamental Courage is Giant Growth with a free untap, Shape the Sands is super Giant Growth, Shield Mate is a solid bluff, Steady Aim is super Titanic Growth , Thornling , and Abzan Beastmaster ?

entheogeneral on No. Stop it. Nope. F**k off!

Oh, I get it. Just like Abbey Matron. Luminarch Ascension seems good, I'll be fervently updating the deck for a few minutes.
