exalted is an ok strat, but it's not worth playing bad creatures with exalted, like guardians of akrasa or aven squire...noble hierarch is an obvious one to include, sigiled paladin is good too

Thanks, I'm awfully tempted to get the Rafiq of the Many, for the double strike, but I don't dig blue

Shield is not being used to its fullest in this deck only fully effects 2 cards ( finks + teeg..) not worth running imo

Guardians of Akrasa needs to be cut as well as avensquire

possibly add bark shell blessing ( +2/+2 for 1, that conspires ... and you only attack with 1, so... )

path to exile could be an option as well

Stillmoon cav? Immune PTE / oring/ terror

well, if budget is not an issue, the blue adds so much to the deck, with rafiq, war monk, possibly cryptic command

Rafiq of the Many is by far the strongest card in an exalted deck.

I would suggest adding Noble Heirarchs, Bant Charms and Rhox War Monks.

You don't run cards because the have exalted. You run good cards and some of them just happen to have exalted (Like Hiearch and Rafiq).

I don't think the W/G little kid deck is good anymore. If you want to give it a spin, just run the best W/G cards plus Sigiled Paladin and noble hierach for the small exalted boost.


What Exactly do you mean with WG little kid deck?.-.

In a aggro-deck, you want to minimize the variations of your options and the gameplan needs to be in the singular. There is a Best Curve, and you want to have that every game. Each turn has a best drop, and that is what you need to play to maximize the chances of overwhelming the opponent.

So that many 2-drops and 3-drops in a aggro deck is pointless.

Which creature is the best 1-drop? Noble Hierarch or Akrasan Squire? The answer is Noble Hierarch. So run 4 of him.

Best 2-drop? Gaddock Teeg. Run 4 (ignore the Legendary drawback. You want to play it turn 2, and you need to maximize your possibility of getting one of him out of 8 or 9 cards).

Best 3-drop? Rhox War Monk. Run 4.

Best 4-drop? Rafiq of the Many. Run 4. Same reason as above.

So far 16 creatures. You need 22-25 of them in a deck like this. You use three colours, so you need cip tapped lands like Seaside Citadel and Vivid Meadow, which prohibits consistently having green for Hierarch as well as white for Squire. Concentrate the curve around the 2-drop segment instead.

Second best 2-drop is Knight of the Meadowgrain. Run 4. Second best 3-drop is Kitchen Finks. Run 4.

24 creatures. Time to have some backup for them.

You could have many types of backup in there. Cryptic Command, Negate, Bant Charm, Path to Exile, Loxodon Warhammer, Shield of the Oversoul, Elspeth, Oblivion Ring are all obvious choices. You don't need any of those to be 4-of, since they can and will be played later in the game than your creatures.

Great advice by Ved

But do you think you should still run Cryptic with Teeg?

And why not Sigiled Paladin over Meadowgrain, the difference being exalted vs. lifelink?

No you shouldn't run Cryptic Command as long as you have 4 Gaddock Teeg. 1UUU is difficult to balance along with the production of G turn 1, so maybe it is for the best that it is not played, despite its tapout function.

Only extensive playtesting will tell you if Gaddock Teeg is more important than Cryptic Command.

Exalted is an ok ability, but the lifelink has a greater impact on the game in most instances. While Gaddock is good vs control, Meadowgrain is good vs aggro and so they are a good team.
