PostSubject: Which BANT list to Run?   Fri Apr 16, 2010 10:29 am

Okay. I'm running Bant, but am torn between 3 variations:


1) Classic

2) Cascade incorporation

3) "White Power" - Honor of the Pure (bad taste for name choice...)



Each has it's own pro's and con's.


BIG NOTE: I only have 2x misty rainforests and 3x Jace Mind Sculptor and access to 2x Glacial Fortress.
We have no Rafiqs or Finest Hour, so the Mythic approach can't be done.

No Noble Hierarchs either (damn!)

I can't use Elspeth's or Day of Judgments this week either......

I know, the options are dwindling....

1) Classic: This one can already be eliminated imo, due to access of cards this week.


2) White Power BantScade (another terrible name)

CREATURES
4x deft duelist
4x rhox war monk
4x knight of the reliquary
4x baneslayer angel
4x enlisted wurm

PLANESWALKERS
3x jace mindsculptor

ARTIFACTS

ENCHANTMENTS
4x honor of the pure
4x ardent plea

INSTANTS

SORCERIES
4x captured sunlight

LANDS
2x misty rainforest
1x verdant catacombs
2x marsh flats
1x celestial colonnade
3x stirring wildwood
2x sunpetal grove
2x glacial fortress
4x seaside citadel
3x plains
3x island
2x forest
1x sejiri steppe

SIDEBOARD
4x summoning trap
2x path to exile
2x flashfreeze
3x negate
2x celestial purge
1x oblivion ring
1x bant charm

*I need to fit Great Sable Stag in the SB somewhere, but what to eliminate??? First guess would be the Summoning Traps.


The #'s aren't 100%, but you get the feel. I just went ahead and combined #2 and #3 idea together. It's garanteed to cascade into Deft Duelist or Honor of the Pure on the low end.

To save time, we'll start here.


Please disuss.

It seems interesting, using jace to set up your cascades is pretty nifty. Also you can put bad cards on top and shuffle them away with fetches and knight. It might be slow, but I'm not really sure that it is. This build is worth testing. The only thing I would change is replace Captured Sunlight with Bant Charm.

Cool. Yeah, I wasn't very sold on Captured Sunlight either. But I worry about cascading into a removal spell when I may not need it , or would rather hit another threat.

Another thing, while on Cascade. I have a very slight chance of killing my Jace, if I cascade into another......but that's only possible with enlisted wurm and having a Jace already in play. But I guess if Jace is out, then I should be able to brainstorm and ensure that doesn't happen.

Ardent Plea always hits a Deft Duelist of Honor of the Pure, and will grant the Exalted bonus I'm missing with from the Noble Hierarchs.

Yeah, I felt that in order to run Honor o.t. Pure, I had to maximize the White creature count and cut anything not white. So I had to drop Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra: basically the acceleration of the deck. But that's where cascade can reclaim some acceleration lost from mana dorks. I really hate not dropping RWMonk or KotR on turn 2, but I think at this point, it just needs testing.

I need some help finalizing the manabase, so I'll post my list and maybe I could get some help.
There are some lands in the first list that are poorly trying to replace my 2 missing Misty Rainforests....and I've noticed alot of Bant lists run quite a few ETB Tapped lands - which is something I'm not comfortable with, but what can ya do??

REVISED LIST:

White Power BantScade:

PLANESWALKERS: -3
3x jace the mind sculptor

CREATURES -20
4x deft duelist
4x rhox war monk
4x knight of the reliquary
4x baneslayer angel
4x enlisted wurm

ENCHANTMENTS -8
4x honor of the pure
4x ardent plea

INSTANTS -4
4x bant charm

LANDS -25
2x misty rainforests
3x seaside citadel
stirring wildwood
celestial colonnade
sunpetal grove
2x glacial fortress
1x sejiri steppe
island
plains
forest

SIDEBOARD -15
1x path to exile
2x celestial purge
2x flashfreeze
3x negate
3x great sable stag (only have 3)
4x summoning trap (exclusively for Control)

If you notice the manabase, I left what I was unsure of blank. The lands with #'s beside them are because that's all we have. More would be nice, but I should be able to manage without losing too much consistency.....I hope.

Bant Charm is really versatile getting rid of threats, killing artifacts and even countering a fog or removal spell. As for cascading into charm or jace you need to remember that cascade says you may play the spell, you can always choose not to if it doesn't help you. Since you aren't really looking to play anything on turn 1 and very little on turn 2 you can afford to run more citpt lands than most decks. I would keep the manland count at 3-4 since you have knight to search for them. I would run something like this:

2 Misty Rainforest
4 Seaside Citadel
2 Stirring Wildwood
2 Celestial Colonnade
2 Sunpetal Grove
4 Glacial Fortress
1 Sejiri Steppe
4 Plains
2 Island
2 Forest

This manabase should provide you with a fair amount of consistency. You should probably try to squeeze more fetches in somewhere, but it is a little tough when you don't have all 4 misty, or noble or birds.
