I wanted to start with this deck because I think it'll be the easiest to change. After NPH hits I'd make these changes.
-1 Adventuring Gear
-1 Sword of Body and Mind
+1 Batterskull
+1 Sword of War and Peace

This is just a small change to get the ball rolling. Other changes I could think of making involve (P) mana creatures that have flying.
