not sure what to say.

how has exalted worked for you ?

you've got 3 critters that are either not playable or won't work for your colors.
the wierd, boggle, and skullkin.

In general you lack the things the colors are good at , draw, discard , and graveyard manipulation.

Also your color fixing is really weak.

in all honesty if I was going to do an exalted deck I'd go with rafiq ..

exalted has worked well for me, even more so when people are forced to block with only one creature with Silent Arbiter

The point was kinda to not do the typical thing with the colors, just to try and operate on a different angel of attack :)

Blistercoil Weird is a blue or a red
Slippery Bogle is a blue or a green

So not sure why these are unplayable

And yeah Jawbone Skulkin is just a place holder card, because I didnt have anything else really that fit in the 1 mana curve spot

The bogle and weird are green and red, respectively, so aren't allowed by the deck building rules. Split and two sided cards face similar restrictions.

Sphinx of the steel wind is boss, but isn't legendary so can't be your general.

You can't quite abuse Sharuum the hedgemon right, but she's big and flying.

Dromar, the banisher is another big flying dude with a bit of control

ubw 1 vs 1. The choice is obvious. Zur the Enchanter. Even if you don't have the cards to build it already, auras are pretty cheap.
