So I obviously wanted to stick with the legendary theme, but wanted some additional utility. In addition, I didn't want to blow up any lands or steal turns, so no Crovax, Ascendant Hero or Mindslaver. However, I did want to use some stuff that I hadn't played with yet, so Avacyn came into the deck.

Basically in the early game, you tutor up defensive legends to have people leave you alone, like Rune-Tail or Michiko. You can get Reki too if you need to start drawing. You basically turtle up until you can go grab your big guns. Survival of the Fittest helps out here as well.

The deck can draw a decent amount of cards, and has some recursion to help out. So it can play the long game if necessary. It doesn't have a ton of ramp, though, so you aren't going to typically be racing out of the gates. I had a bunch of fun with the deck though.

All right, a couple suggestions were brought up. The first was Seedborn Muse, along with Vedalken Orrery, Enlightened Tutor and Yeva, Nature's Herald. You have the possibility of tutoring a bunch of dudes and playing them too. The Muse is freaking awesome, but I just didn't want to go that hard core. That's a personal choice regarding power level that I made. Yeva is pretty good though, and I mention her in the deck tech video.

In addition, Thousand-Year Elixir and other haste enablers/untappers can help get Sisay online faster. However, I thought that these kind of cards were too specific to Sisay herself. I never hadcast Arashi, but they can only really help Mangara and Rofellos I think, also Ulvenwald Tracker. But the deck does have Lightning Greaves and Akroma's Memorial, and I think that was enough.

Finally, Qasali Pridemage is better than Viridian Zealot, but I just wanted to mix things up a little bit.
