Deck Description

Legality:
Standard, built with cards from the block Shadows over Innistrad (Shadows over Innistrad, Eldritch Moon)

Idea:
Standard decks are always a challenge for me because I simply don't know the meta and don't know what my opponents could use. But after finding "Tireless Tracker" and "Bygone Bishop" in the same booster I simply know that I had to do something with it.
I started with adding 24 lands, which is an unusual way of starting a deck for me and an unusual high number of lands. But I knew that I would have to pay for many clues so I would need the mana.
I then looked for more 'Investigate' Spells and found some good ones: "Thraben Inspector", "Confront the Unknown", "Expose Evil", "Survive the Night", "Ulvenwald Mysteries" and "Weirding Wood".
Save for some removals I had everything I wanted and was looking for some strong finishers. I found "Bloodbriar" and as clues are permanents it fitted the idea nicely.
"Thalia, Heretic Cathar" made the list full though I don't know if there isn't a better card for this deck.

Tests:
Tough I own many of those card 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

Though not being a strong deck the clue tokens should help to get the cards you need to deal with your opponents.
If you manage to keep the balance between sacrificing clues and keeping them "Confront the Unknown" should really be devastating.
"Expose Evil" allows you to tap defending creatures your opponent controls to make way for your one ones.
