After drafting this set a bit this is my first go at Black/White exalted. I'm pretty happy with the result although with limited removal, no draw, and no fatties I'm definitely asking to get board wiped by Chandra's Fury or even a Planar Cleansing. I hedged a bit against both of those by sticking Ring of Xathrid and some discard but I think I missed a chance passing Duress.I know there were many other Divine Verdicts being passed. That definitely worries me more than Pacifism.As for the tough cuts to forty, I decided to run the least amount of lands I've ever chanced with 15 due to the low curve. I opted against Ajani's Sunstriker in favor of the evasive and slightly more aggressive (with tempo trade-off) Serra Avenger. Captain's Call also didn't make the cut as I think my deck chumps fine already. Should I make room for Servant of Nefarox? She seems unimpressive for this deck while getting blown out by Chandra's Fury. I'm pretty excited about War Falcon which is probably my favorite card in the set. I only have six enablers but I'm still stoked to roll with it.Decks I think B/W exalted doesn't want to see: Anything with decent red, blue fliers/krakens, or Fog Bank and Arms Dealer. Green/X is also not a great match but I think Angelic Benediction is key to shutting off their spiders. Thoughts?

Lol my first 3 picks ended up being such a waste as I ended up going neither Green or Black but went White&Blue instead with splash of Black. I really really don't know how I got 2 Phantasms First pack when the 2 guys just to my left were going Blue as well. I mean Pick 4 and 8 pack 1 is just rediculous for them. And last pack not sure how Intrepid Hero made it to 4th pick Also not sure how I got 2 Mind Sculpts so late in packs 2 and 3.PicksShowRound 1:Knight of InfamySentinel SpiderTimberpack WolfJace's PhantasmPacifismPacifismDivine VerdictJace's PhantasmKindled FuryDuty-Bound DeadKindled FuryGiant ScorpionDark FavorBountiful HarvestMountainRound 2:Serra AvengerKnight of GloryAttended KnightNicol Bolas, PlaneswalkerCaptain's CallHarbor BanditSlumbering DragonWar FalconSafe PassageDuty-Bound DeadRewindDownpourMind SculptSmeltIslandRound 3:Arctic AvenDivine VerdictKnight of GloryAven SquireRing of ThuneMark of the VampireDivine VerdictWarclamp MastiffPlummetFogMind SculptTricks of the TradeSmeltKraken HatchlingForestHeres my Deck, nothing higher than 4 cost wise and low on double mana in other than white.

BW exalted. Focused entirely on grabbing exalted creatures and creatures who work well with it: Mastiff, Tormented Soul. Grabbed the Gems for manafix so i wouldn't need a whole lot of mountains but then found that, with the low curve of the build, it probably wouldn't be necessary. So I decided to add a couple lands and incorporate nicol bolas who probably wouldn't see too much play but, is nice to have anyway. Cleaver riot made it in for versatility. If exalted isn't the most effective attack or I need to clear the opponents board, it's not bad. If exalted IS working, best case is +10/+10 and double strike to some creature. gives me the opening to play entirely defense if I need to until I see it. Who knows how it'll play out.It may have a couple of holes but, i figure for drafting, all-or-nothing strategies are hard to stop. Especially since I don't remember seeing any creature countering spells. Unsummon doesn''t really bug me. If burn shows a consistent problem, i can swap out some cards for some of the 3 & 4 toughness picks and disentomb.

And I think exalted is very strong indeed.P1P2: Duty-bound dead vs Healer of the Pride vs sentinel spiderThis was the "all in" moment. Healer is amazing. The spider is practically a serra angel. DBD though is very important to the exalted build.P1P6: Pacifism vs essence drainPacifism I think is slightly weaker than it was in M12 because pacifying an exalted creature doesn't switch off the exalted, and because there are a lot more utility creatures which can be problematic (Krenko, Talrand, Intrepid Hero). However, this deck wants to cast a creature with exalted and remove a blocker in the same turn, so the low cc makes this more appealing.P1P8: Ring of Evos Isle vs Giant ScorpionI think I called this right (even though I didn't run the ring and ran two scorpions). The Scorpion is a great attacker when powered up by exalted, and when not is still a great blocker. However against certain decks the ring will be hard to answer. The only reason I didn't start with it is because I picked up the black ring instead.P2P2: Multilate vs Knight of GloryTough one. I want lots of two-drops with exalted, and they are hard to find. But mutilate wrecks this deck so even if I don't cast it, not having to play against it tipped me in favour of mutilate.
Hi Everyonei went for a green black deathtouch deck no flying creatures but i think i can make up for that with creatures with reach, and unblockable creatures.ShowRound 1: Disentomb Sentinel Spider Giant Scorpion Giant Scorpion Blood Reckoning Deadly Recluse Serpent's Gift Giant Scorpion Tormod's Crypt Tormented Soul Disentomb Farseek Dark Favor Bountiful Harvest Mountain Round 2: Tormented Soul Sentinel Spider Giant Scorpion Serpent's Gift Spiked Baloth Ranger's Path Primal Huntbeast Naturalize Ring of Xathrid Bond Beetle Titanic Growth Plummet Naturalize Smelt Island Round 3: Serpent's Gift Fog Deadly Recluse Arbor Elf Tormented Soul Ring of Kalonia Essence Drain Mwonvuli Beast Tracker Plummet Serpent's Gift Disentomb Trumpet Blast Glorious Charge Plummet Forestsorry if this didnt appear correctly on the forum.

Those who fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do.
I've seen angels fall from blinding heights. But you yourself are nothing so divine. Just next in line.

Deck ended up pretty good. I ended up cutting the Lich as only two artificats is fairly tight. The Exalted mechanic is rather nice here, with Duty-Bound Dead or Tormented Soul providing excellent 1 of attacking. The rings and the shades make for excellent late game threats as well. Plenty of removal, reset with Mutilate, and Dark Favor making any of your small dudes must deal withs.

White/black exalted came together better than I anticipated. White was really deep in removal, and black had a bit of evasion and even more exalted.

This plays like most exalted decks, but two things to note. The combination of Giant Scorpion and exalted means that your opponent has to choose between letting some damage through or wiping out his entire board. If you need to reset with Mutilate, try to attack with something that your opponent can't kill easily (e.g. Warclamp Mastiff, Duty-Bound Dead, or the aforementioned Giant Scorpion) so that exalted will boost your attacker beyond what Mutilate will kill. Possible sideboard cards include Erase (for that Rancor that was going around) and Duress.

Thanks.
Round 1:Knight of Infamy this or switcheroo. Blue will probably get fought over more, and I feel like being aggroDivine Verdict Between this and sign in blood ,when in doubt take removal.Giant Scorpion This or guardians of akrasa. Looks like I'll have a controllish build. The scorpion is a threat as well as defense.Cower in Fear I was right not to underestimate this card. i,l always pick it.Pacifism Yes please. next best was ravenous rats. But it'S a 1/1 that make people discsrd land.Pacifism Yes please.Divine Verdict OMFGBBQ! Control it is.Giant Scorpion I want both this and the lion. But I'm going to be control so. might as well be dedicated.Disentomb Considered glorious charge but I am no longer aggro.Tormented Soul Umblockable guys are good in control I hear.Zombie Goliath I need at least one big guy.FarseekDark FavorBountiful HarvestMountain
Round 2:Ring of Xathrid This might seem questionable but if you think about it, most of my deck looks like it's going to be black (I have no white creatures so far) and every single creature I have wants to wear this. it wil be more useful then the 4serra avenger which I can race anyway. I have to let pacifism go but, it's not like I'm lacking removal.Mutilate I could cry of joy.Attended Knight first white creture. Control likes CA. Especially at that cost.Walking Corpse I need a 2 drop. And ring of Thune is useless to me.Crippling Blight Removal is popular this year.Ravenous Rats Another 2 drop, and it fits the deck's purpose.Slumbering Dragon I'm splashing this. Too bad for whoever let it go. Would have taken bloodthrone otherwise (mutilate + bash)War Falcon Hellion crucible would be pushing it.Tormented Soul I do need this. Might pckup and play a dark faor.Duty-Bound DeadDuressPlummet I am NOT losing my dragon to not hating this.Krenko's Command Nice card to hate.Kindled FuryIsland
Round 3:Prized Elephant This took some thinking. There is NOTHING that fits me in the rare or uncommon, and this is still a hill giant. The only one available in black OR white unless I miss my guess. So I take it.Divine Verdict Man, my opponents will cry.Bloodhunter Bat I probably should have taken knight of glory, but I have no flying creature, and there's some CA in it.Aven Squire yay, my first common white creature.Public Execution .........What more could I ask for?Liliana's Shade great card for this deck. Considered the muckwader though.Tormented SoulShow of Valor The deck had no tricks so far.Pillarfield Ox I may actually play this. Good defensive card.Goblin ArsonistDisentombTricks of the TradeGlorious ChargePlummet another break for my dragon (and aven)Forest
