My deck back when Alara and Zendikar was standard was something similar to...

http://www.mtgvault....x?DeckID=283216


Though I could compete, it wasn't a winner all to often

However, I loved it
And I'm still looking to make it work

With mirrodin, i was sincerely excited, followed by dissappointment
Many of the white creatures were dumpy and expensive

Though I did like the equipment

however, with innistrad, I'm really excited for a couple of reasons

1) Mentor of the meek - Some Solid Drawing capabilities I've been looking for
2) Champion of the Parish - with the right cards, this can be a 3/3 on turn 2 and a 6/6 or more on turn three
-though I need to rework my deck alot, I believe it would be worth it for proper rush down
3) Gather the Townsfolk - This is something that already exsists, but has been pretty buffed up by the 5 tokens with 5 life. This can be a nice last minute buff with champion If I play it right
4) invisible Stalker - Quietus spike is one heck of a card, and invisible stalker is just the right kind of creature to deal the damage
5) Stichers apprentice - Chump Blockers for days. I'm a big fan of always having a creature when sacrificing something else. also triggers "when comes into play" on some creatures. I definitly think its one of the better cards in the set
6) doomed traveler - after a day of judgement or wrath of god hits, I still have a creature. and with 2 honor of the pures out and 2 ardent pleas, it turns from a 1/1 to a 5/5
7) Mikaeus, the Lunarch - another pumper, similar to phantom nantuko except hits all of your creatures
8) Spectral Rider - Because flying doesn't always cut it when it comes to evasion :)



I probably still wont play standard until Infect has left
But I still am pretty happy with innistrad

You just now getting back into standard or something?

I freaking love Innistrad. I play on MTGO, I've got a really nice all white/green human deck. It wins tournaments, but it's still missing a few key cards that would just blow it right the fuck up.

Champion of the Parish is the best opener in the world. If you get your land, a champion, and 2 Mayor of Avabruck in your first hand you win. Then Angelic Overseer pops up sooner or later and destroys the world.

I've never lost with a starting hand like that.

Yeah, mayor looks solid, that along with
Champion
Elite Vanguard
Hamlet Captain
Gideon Lawkeeper
Mentor of the Meek
and then Melira for defensive reasons

looks damn good and allows you to have about 20 to 22 lands, maybe less

I just didn't like Mirrodin too much
THeres a few cards I liked, but for the most part I was pretty dissappointed : /

I run all of those but Gideon's Lawkeeper, I prefer straight removal to the whole tapping thing.

First time I ragequitted in a multiplayer game and also on the guys on skype. =_=; Would love to get to play the physical game some day but noone I know here is into it.
