Well, I've decided to make a new deck. My general will be Raksha Golden Cub. I chose him because I kind of wanted to make a monocolor deck, and he can lay down the beats. I don't even necessarily want to get in for 21 damage, just beat someone senseless with some cats. Meow!

Here's the list that I'm putting together right now.

General: Raksha Golden Cub


Academy Rector
Auriok Steelshaper
Benalish Commander
Bringer of the White Dawn
Catapult Master
Celestial Crusader
Crovax, Ascendant Hero
Crowd Favorites (secret tech?)
Darien, King of Kjeldor
Daru Warcheif
Dust Elemental
Eight-and-a-Half Tails
Field Marshall
Jareth, Leonin Titan
Leonin Abunas
Leonin Battlemage
Leonin Shikari
Leonin Squire
Myojin of Cleansing Fire
Savannah Lions (I had to... :lol: )
Seht's Tiger
Skyhunter Cub
Skyhunter Prowler
Taj-Nar Swordsmith (broken)
Treasure Hunter
Whitemane Lion

Enlightened Tutor (searches up most relevant things in the deck)
Decree of Justice
Hour of Wreckoning
Kirtar's Wrath
Miraculous Recovery
Ray of Distortion
Return to Dust
Roar of Reclaimation
Steelshaper's Gift
Stir the Pride (flavor, and wrecks people!!)
Storm Herd
Wrath of God

Aura of Silence
Sacred Mesa

Citanul Flute
Coat of Arms (FTW, no doubt)
Darksteel Forge
Extraplanar Lens (millions of mana 1/2)
Gauntlet of Power (millions of mana 2/2)
Konda's Banner (6/5 Double striking Savannah Lions?)
Kusari-Gama (doubly good with Double-Strike)
Leonin Sun Standard (plus Lens or Gauntlet)
Lightning Greaves
Loxodon Warhammer
Mind Stone
Nevirrynal's Disk
Scultping Steel
Sol Ring
Sword of Fire and Ice
Sword of Light and Shadow
Sword of Kaldra
Shield of Kaldra

Daru Encampment
Dust Bowl
Eiganjo Castle
Kjeldoran Outpost
Kor Haven
New Benalia
(25) Snow-Covered Plains
Scrying Sheets
Strip Mine
Temple of the False God
Thawing Glaciers
Mouth of Ronom

I think that this deck will have lots of synergy going. My main goal is to play creatures that pump each other, give each other retarded abilities (i.e. Raksha), or lay down mad beats in general. Also, I can make many tokens with my Enchantments, and lay down the beats with those.

I think I can get a good swarm of creatures going, and pump them up to put someone that is being a little slow down to fatal health. Also, yes, I added the snow engine for Scying Sheets. I need all of the card draw I can muster up. Also, It prevents anyone with random Plains benefiting from Lens.

Creature Pumps:
Auriok Steelshaper, Celestial Crusader, Daru Warchief, Field Marshall, Crovax, Coat of Arms, Gauntlet of Power, Leonin Sun-Standard, Konda's Banner

Comments or suggestions? (my main concern is not dying to Wrath/Vengeance effects)

Reasoning behind Roar of Reclamation? While flavorful, I don't see it being all that synergistic in this deck - it looks like a strictly defensive measure. I'd cut it.

With all the pump, a Whispersilk Cloak on Raksha could make a nice 1-2 turn clock. Just a thought.

Thawing Glaciers? Handy, sure, but (from my own experience) that card brought games with 40 card decks to a crawl. In this format, you'd best hope for some very understanding opponents, otherwise it's going to be "Dogpile on the Glaciers guy!"

I've pulled the Extraplanar Lens/snow trick before myself, to decent effect.

As I fear 6/6 dragon generals, I'd try to squeeze in more flying, but that might just be me.

Okay, since you're going with multiple basics and also some toolbox lands, I recommend:

Weathered Wayfarer
Land Tax
Gift of Estates

for some tutoring/card draw that can help power up extraplanar lens et al. Plus you can run the equipment Empyreal Plate to tutor up if you want - it can make guys pretty big.

Landwise, a Dark Depths for fun?

I see my ex-girlfriends. Well, not so much 'see' as 'watch'.
