I was attempting to build an abzan midrange deck and was wondering what cards needed to be included and what should be in the flex spots

Well, start with the obvious - 4 Thoughtseize and any number of Abrupt Decay, Anguished Unmaking and Assassin's Trophy; and the quintessential midrange creature 4 Siege Rhino. Everything else will depend on what you want to do with the deck.

With that deck, you have 6 cards in there that are white. Is it not better to just go with straight GB? Run more planeswalkers instead of those and go straight as a Rock.

true. thats not the most updated version of the deck im running a few more white things now such as abzan charm and using white for painful truth. I really liked abzan in modern and was trying to make something similar in a less expensive format

I have provided some suggestions on the deck itself on how to go straight GB, but the gist of it is - add more planeswalkers. You want value and nothing generates value like walkers. The Dominaria Karn, OG Vraska and Kaya are cards, I would play over similar options.

I completely forgot the 1 mana planeswalker Deathrite Shaman, this should be a very good card here!
