ok, so i kinda suck at deck building here is a (probably failed) attempt at a bant deck

Qty Name
// Lands
8 Plains
3 Island
4 Bant Panorama
4 Seaside Citadel
3 Forest
//\\
// Creatures
4 Akrasan Squire
4 Guardians of Akrasa
4 Sigiled Paladin
2 Battlegrace Angel
3 Knight-Captain of Eos
2 Rafiq of the Many
3 Elspeth, Knight-Errant
3 Stoic Angel
2 Noble Hierarch
//\\
// Spells
3 Oblivion Ring
4 Bant Charm
3 Light from Within
3 Dispeller's Capsule

my plan is to get some exalted out in the first few rounds namely akrasan Squire and noble hierarch,

then for later in the game, knight captian+elspeth for damage control oblivion and bant charms for counter and remove

stoic angel to lock the board,

and rafiq as my win condition, played testing this deck has shown me its horrible, any advice would be welcome

ps i need a sideboard desperately...

I don't play much type 2, so I dunno whether an Exalted deck is even viable, but I'm noticing some problems right away with 2 and 3-of's. That's going to make your late game inconsistent.

Guardians of Akrasa seems a poor choice compared to fellow 3-drop Rhox War Monk, or even 2 more Noble Hierarch to keep in the Exalted theme. Rafiq seems better as a 4-of, probably replacing Knight-Captain or Battlegrace Angel. Light from Within is weak compared to Ajani Goldmane or Glorious Anthem. Dispeller's Capsule could be a meta choice main, but I dunno what you're hitting with it, so it seems better sideboarded.

4 Noble Hierarch
4 Shorecrasher Mimic

4 Rhox War Monk
4 Rafiq of the Many

1 Loxodon Warhammer

2 Elspeth, Knight Errant

4 Bant Charm

I think the best thing you can do is stop playing your deck in type 2 ditch the few bad cards I'll leave other people to point them out and the very few non block cards and start playing block instead.

really? No one is going to comment on the fact that Black1234 basically says, "I built a bad deck, I'm horrible at magic, I don't really care about advice because I'm gonna be bad regardless" and then gives a decklist?

If you believe you're bad and that your deck is horrible, guess what, you will be and it is. So why should people give you constructive criticism?

There is such thing as CONSTRUCTIVELY asking for constructive criticism.

Here's your mana curve

1cc: 7 (3 path to exile)
2cc: 6 (2 negate)
3cc: 14 (4 bant charm)
4cc: 10
5cc: 2

(39 cards)

and 22 lands, 4 of which is Bant "sucks" Panorama, 3 of which lets you play Noble Hierarch turn 1.
