Deck Description

Standard, built with cards from the block Amonkhet (Amonkhet, Hour of Devastation)

Basic Idea:
The idea for this deck came while I was opening Hour of Devastation boosters and stumbling upon Dauntless Aven and Resolute Survivors. The first draft of this deck was white and red, green got added in the last second because I really liked Synchronized Strike.

This deck exists only on this site and has never been played against another deck. Regardless I'm open to all suggestions and ideas that may help to improve this deck.

How to Play

This is a real straight deck strategy: Play creatures, protect creatures if necessary, hit your opponent until dead.
The deck revolves around the exert ability, which allows you to deal more damage/ use additional effects but it won't untap on your following turn. To counter this drawback cards like Ahn-Crop Champion, Dauntless Aven, Act of Heroism or Synchronized Strike have been added.
The sideboard features Djeru's Resolve when playing against decks with many red-removals, Life Goes On when you're in trouble with your life too often and Nef-Crop Entangler when you need to get through a tough defence.
The drawback of this is that the deck lacks any possibility to interact with your opponent or his creatures other than combat.
