CamraMaan on MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Board Wipe Cards

Since you already have your list broken up into different categories, I don't see the point in excluding cards that don't save tokens, when you can just put them in their own list...

Also worth consideration are: Elspeth, Knight-Errant Flawless Maneuver Glorious Protector Akroma's Will

One of my pet decks is my Lavinia of the Tenth flicker deck. I love flickering stuff for value and oppression.

For win cons specifically, I use infinite spell/mana combos featuring Archaeomancer + Ghostly Flicker + Peregrine Drake .

There are redundancies of course, so you don’t have to use those only. Mnemonic Wall , Palinchron or Felidar Guardian + Gilded Lotus all work as substitutes.

There’s also the option of Glorious Protector infinite mana combo.

With any of these active, Brain Freeze wins, so do Aetherflux Reservoir and Sentinel Tower . For infinite mana, Capsize or Blue Sun's Zenith will make people scoop/lose. For infinite flicker combos, Venser, Shaper Savant bounces all opposing permanents and will make people scoop.

Lavinia flicker is my deck, though a bit out of date, might give you some good ideas.

I guess that's the part I was unclear about... Glorious Protector doesn't say if the creatures come back under their owners control or mine, and usually a card states one or the other...

Unfortunately, no.

While Glorious Protector will save all of these creatures from destruction, when the Protector leaves the battlefield, they will return under their owner's control, not your control.

Merieke will lose track of them when the Protector exiles them.

I read recently that Merieke Ri Berit can stack stealing creatures with a series of untaps in the mix on the stack (say with Pemmin's Aura ), all before she officially untaps (on the stack) to destroy those creatures. Assuming this is true, can I also use Glorious Protector in this mix to exile all the stolen creatures before Merieke officially untaps, allowing me to permanently bring them all back under my control when Glorious Protector leave the battlefield...? I assume I can, but what would be the proper order of actions to successfully keep the creatures?

Also, all of this relies on the concept that I can untap Merieke before her tap ability resolves, then tap her to take another creature, untap her, tap to take another, etc. But my own logic thinks this has flaws in the process. If I tap her to take a creature, but untap her before it resolves, then I haven't taken possession of the creature yet, right? It must resolve in order for me to actually take possession of their creature, no? If untapping Merieke prevents her tap ability from resolving, and therefore her 'untap-to-destroy' from resolving, then it should also prevent her from taking possession of the creature until it resolves, right? It seems that if she gains control of the creature, and I take possession, then it naturally comes over with her untap trigger stuck to it. And then by untapping her to take another creature, that her untap trigger will then be on the stack, no?

I really want this to all work, but I know I can't explain it all correctly to my playgroup at the moment. Thanks in advance! :)

I like Glorious Protector as a card, Reidane, God of the Worthy  Flip is good too, Sigrid, God-Favored is good as well. I think there are a handful of aggressive white cards that seem worth playing as well - Usher of the Fallen for one. I like the Angel sub-theme too but that's playing a cheekier deck for sure. Not sold on Halvar, God of Battle  Flip although I'm sure it's good in some cases.

The only things I know that are remotely similar are cards like Yorion, Sky Nomad that exile things and bring them back. There's Glorious Protector as well, but that's more situational.
