    Bant Retreat to Coralhelm

    This deck is getting too much attention on MTGSal to get any cohesive design push.

    The new card that is getting all the hype:


    This card is actually really cool. It does lots of things, from enabling you to pretty much 1 hit kill with Knight of the Reliquary to turning every mana dork in your deck into a Lotus Cobra. It also just lets you find good stuff easily with scry, or taps down defenders. A lot of different directions could be taken with this style of deck, but I think 2 important things are necessary for it to be good:

    1. The deck functions well without Retreat, and doesn't rely on any combo too much.

    2. The deck can spend the mana well if it does get a Retreat and doesn't rely on KotR to win.

    One of the coolest things a deck like this could do is Turn 1 Mana dork, Turn 2 Retreat to Coralhelm, Turn 3 fetchland -> 6 mana. I think building around this curve is necessary in the deck being good. We want 6cmc game changers. The one I'm thinking of is Primeval Titan since we'll already have a couple utility lands in the deck for KotR to work with.

    Aside from that you can turn 2/3 a Knight of the Reliquary and then next turn drop Retreat to Coralhelm and go through your entire lands in your deck

    The list I'm thinking of is something like this:

    4 Noble Hierarch
    4 Birds of Paradise
    3 Courser of Kruphix
    4 Knight of the Reliquary
    3 Dragonlord Ojutai
    3 Primeval Titan
    1 Eternal Witness

    4 Retreat to Coralhelm
    4 Path to Exile
    2 Negate
    2 Simic Charm
    3 Primal Command

    4 Misty Rainforest
    4 Windswept Heath
    1 Horizon Canopy
    2 Temple Garden
    4 Breeding Pool
    2 Stomping Ground
    1 Kessig Wolf Run
    1 Ghost Quarter
    1 Treetop Village
    2 Forest
    1 Plains
    1 Minamo, School at Water's Edge
    1 Dryad Arbor

    Where do you guys think we should take this deck? Sun Titans perhaps? It's pretty cool to have a deck that just has an instant win but plays like a normal bant deck until then.
