Your mana base may actually screw you. Too many non basic lands might slow you down in what should be a fast deck.

not likely...

the land base is the way it is because this deck requires a vast amount of mana fixing...

when i had mostly basics in there i kept getting a decent number of land but not the right colors i needed...

also how is a turn 2 Giltspire, Rhox War Monk, Bant Charm, or Snakeform slow?

how is a turn 3 Rafiq, Elspeth, Wrath, or Cryptic Command slow?

sorry but i think the mana base is fine as is

Shorecrasher Mimic Buy is a must in this deck and makes it so much faster. I like snakeform in here but the wrath count is high. Broken Ambitions Buy is as good as mana leak in the early game. If you want to make the deck faster they could be of use.

You are playing white and you don't play Oblivion Ring Buy? Aurg, you must play that card if you want an out verse plainswalkers.

Best of luck and hope you enjoy life.

This isn't Bant Aggro!

Shorecrasher is amazing but its not the focus of this build.

Also Wrath is a must since there are so many aggro Decks being played this format.

Broken Ambitions is nice but again its not for this Deck.

And bro I have O Ring sided for a reason...

I think you should take thornling out. in the current meta, there are too many removal spells to make his indestructible ability valuable (not saying its completely useless) and his haste ability is just aweful. I think there are better fatties you can get (plus the artwork is bad). Besides that, its a pretty solid deck.

I can respect your opinion on Thornling but Thornling has proven himself time after time so he stays. Also he is amazing against Faeries. If they don't counter him he will never die!

well, let's start with mana base. i know where you are going, but try to smooth it out. get rid of treetop village. if you want a land that comes into play tapped, use Seaside Citadel. it's all the colors you are using and is invaluable with reflecting pool. toss the mystic gates and use only the hybrids that give green (wooded bastion and flooded grove) same goes for the pain lands. you need your green.

maybe think about Jhessian Balmgiver to give make your Cephalid Constable unblockable. also, put in more exalted. it's lacking in this mechanic. play Cold-Eyed Selkie for some card draw maybe. the wraths arent necessary if you can keep their board under wraps. cryptics are ok, but i would focus on removal like oblivion ring or path to exile because of the 3 blue you have to dish out.

get rid of shorecrasher mimic and maybe the thornling. make room for exalted creatures. court archers is a great defender. and dont forget guiltspire avenger.

your sideboard needs some work. forget the archmages and the cavaliers, even the cloudthresher. wraths are good in sideboard. need naturalize. forge-tender is great.

I have to keep Messing with the Mana Base to find that perfect one but I agree that Treetop needs to go. Shorecrasher is nice but too much of a combo card for my taste so I can also agree with that. Court Archers is crap, plain and simple. I need my other colors just as much as I need my Green so I don't agree with your Mana Base suggestions.

As for my Sideboard, Glen Elendra is amazing in both the Mirror Match and against Control Decks. Cloudthresher is for Faeries and B/W Tokens as is Stillmoon. Stillmoon is also great against Kithkin.

i might consider adding some spot removal like path to exile or oblivion ring because you have no ways to deal with a specific threat or painful card. otherwise it looks like a pretty solid bant deck. pls r8 my 5 color planeswalker deck
