september 2018 update:
did most of my masters climb this month with this deck, and in the process tweaked the sigilbase/market with the help of ManuS.
from gold2 to diamond2 i went 23-10 with this list
but i went 19-20 in diamond 1 and had to switch to big combrei for the final push into masters (9-4)
the majority of those D1 losses were to FJS/JPS removal piles (Auric Runehammer) and big xenan/praxis killers
deck i made it to masters with in july
not the most smooth climb so i'm not particularly happy with it
but it turns out plate on aegis guys is still pretty strong,
with the addition of Copperhall Bracers
to the arsenal and a pet card of mine, Linebreaker's Shield fairs well against: Permafrost
, feln control, stonescar/removal heavy types, unitless control, chalice, aggro decks that can't get past fat endurance ageis guys
loses to: Hooru Pacifier
, praxis midrange, armory, some clockroach/echo decks, charge rod's that don't get frogg'ed, others i can't recall at the moment.
initially was trying to utilize Horde Plunderer
but the spellcraft effects I was exploiting didn't feel strong enough to justify just playing regular cards like Vanquish
and Finest Hour
influence awareness is also pretty critical

was almost never used by me, probably should be something else
