Deck aim/playstyle

The aim of this deck is simple, build up a big mid-game flying creature presence and swing at your opponent's face. You really want to be finding either [[Empyrean Eagle]] or [[Archon of Sun's Grace]] on curve, both are brilliant. Once you have [[Archon of Sun's Grace]] on the board you want to be playing your enchantments on your flyers to not only buff their presence but also spam a load of 2/2 pegasus tokens.

Don't be afraid to play [[Staggering Insight]] on your cheap creatures like [[Healer's Hawk]] as the additional card draw will help you find the card you want.


Staple Cards

[[Staggering Insight]]

[[Empyrean Eagle]]

[[Archon of Sun's Grace]]

[[Elite Guardmage]]


Deck Strengths

-The continuous ramage of flying creatures can be very tricky for your opponent to deal with

-Very strong against aggro decks, if playing to curve you can have an excellent success rate against anything that is aggressive

-Cards like [[Staggering Insight]] and [[Elite Guardmage]] can provide great card draw


Deck Weaknesses

-This deck can be pretty poor at recovering from a low land start. Most of the creatures have pretty weak base stats so falling behind on land can be hard to recover

-Although the deck offers good sustainability through lifelink, it really struggles to provide a presence in longer matchups, especially against control decks


Key cards to add

[[Heliod, Sun-Crowned]] - This will allow you to pose more of a late-game threat through the continuous counter buffs you'll be giving your flyers every time you gain life

[[Dream Trawler]] - No doubt the best flying creature in standard at the moment! If you build into this 6 mana beast then it can offer a great win condition. The ability to keep in on the board by discarding a card is great, it also adds to your card draw ability and let's not overlook the fact that it's a 5/5 lifelink flyer!

[[Brazen Borrower]] - This handy little flyer brings a little more control into the deck. The ability to bump cards back to hand can really slow down and stall out big threats or aggressive decks.

Lands - If you have any White/Blue duo lands then swap these out for the basic lands.
