Standard: Promellow!

Lands (24)
4 Sunpetal Grove
4 Wooded Bastion
8 Plains
8 Forest

Creatures (24)
4 Noble Hierarch
4 White Knight
4 Valeron Outlander
4 Great Stable Stag
4 Stillmoon Cavalier
4 Chameleon Colossus

Artifacts (4)
4 Painter's Servant

Other Spells (12)
4 Path to Exile
4 Harm's Way

Sideboard (15)
4 Celestial Purge
3 Gaddock Teeg
4 Pithing Needle
4 Burrenton Forge-Tender

1/3 of the deck is filled with pro black creatures. Just drop your dudes and a Painter's Servant naming black and your army just became unblockable, untargetable mean green/white fighting machines. Celestial Purge in the sideboard can start exiling lands if you have a Painter's Servant out but mainly is just good for getting rid of those Hellspark Elemental's ball lightnings etc. The BFT is for red of course, pithing for swans, planeswalkers and combo and teeg just to screw those cryptic commands and broken ambitions. it also helps in specific matchups. I have not found someone to test with yet but I would be glad to test on WebWizard my nickname is Mushmellow. I think you can get it at twinfeats.com and it works for Mac! Any comments theories or suggestions greatly appreciated. I really like this idea because it's fun original and has some flavor because it goes against the "dark side."!

How do you protect the painter's servant?

he does not die to fallout but pretty much dies to everything else. you can protect him with harm's way i guess but really its not that big of a deal. you sort of just drop him and then swing for the win on that turn let's say if your opponent is tapped out. it's an aggro deck so you don't need to run counterspells to protect him and such.

I reckon you could run a mass pump to speed the clock up.

Overrun/Garruk
Wilt-Leaf Liege
Ajani

Something to make the clock faster. Stillmoon seems out of place :S.
He's 1 more than the Valeron Outlander and he's 1 less power than the GSS.

Not at all. Once the servant came out, the sledge is black... and therefore cannot be equipped. The concept is sound, I just don't know if it'll be good enough against some of the Tier 1 removal (Martial Coup, Hallowed Burial, Etc).

If you donīt draw the Painter, you have jus a bunch of overcosted creatures. If you draw him, a opp. with brain will remove him.

Isn't the goal to make everything white and use Chaotic Backlash to win?

If I play you you probably won't remove him. Smile
