Archetype of Courage Discussion

I don't like Phyrexian Rebirth , Martial Coup , Bant Charm , and honestly most of your creature base. Shalai, Voice of Plenty Nylea's Colossus Archetype of Courage Loyal Guardian Celestial Ancient and Yavimaya Enchantress seem pretty bad in particular. I dont understand the +1/+1 theme you have here, you only have 20 creatures.
I would add Crush Contraband and or Return to Dust . Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares are also no brainers. Three Dreams is another solid one, it can search for pumps like Eldrazi Conscription and even pseudo-removal like Control Magic or Faith's Fetters

Re:Leverd01 Thanks, I have been considering Archetype of Courage , but its effect is almost redundant with my commander (the only most-likely card on the board when Archetype is played) and First Strike doesn't go very far when you consider there are only going to be a couple of creatures out at a time, as many of them are easy to pick off. It doesn't go as wide as you think it should, but it could if you draw well and your opponents leave you unchecked. The strategy is to cheat out Sewer Nemesis or Nighthowler for the kill (especially if you can trigger Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion in the same attack), which should be an easy kill if Impact Tremors , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , and Kambal, Consul of Allocation have been chipping away at your opponent(s), not to mention any damage going through from Alesha and various other attackers you've brought back along the way. Cathars' Crusade and Flame-Kin Zealot help you to go wide, but First Strike doesn't help go for the throat the same way that even Menace or Deathtouch do. He's a great thought... but what ought go out to replace him?

How about Archetype of Courage ?

I really can't see any win-con off this. Have you considered trying using enchantment creatures like Archetype of Courage ?

Oh, also, if you need to shave dollars to stay in your budget, I would start with Archetype of Courage , Fiendslayer Paladin , Gift of Immortality , Kazandu Blademaster , Lingering Souls (It's not legal in your colors to begin with, so that should be cut regardless), Mimic Vat , New Benalia , Prototype Portal (What is this even doing here?), Return to Dust ( Crush Contraband is roughly as good and much cheaper), Rogue's Passage (only really worth it in a voltron deck), Seal Away ( Crib Swap and Stasis Snare are better and cheaper), Sigiled Paladin , Silverbeak Griffin (how is a card from an intro deck a dollar, anyway?), and Thalia's Lancers .

Here’s a few ideas for possible additions:
Karmic Guide combos with Reveillark and ashnods altar works good to fuel your skullclamp when you have a decent amount of tokens.

KayneMarco Hey, thanks for taking a look! I had Plea for Guidance in the deck for a while, but I eventually cut it to reduce the amount of tutors (I accomodated my playgroup by removing some power and consistency from the deck). It's definitely a great suggestion and a card I like very much, both in function and in flavour.
I'm a bit torn on the weapons of the gods. I can see myself slotting the spear as it's added protection and the anthem would allow me to play both Enchanted Evening and Starfield of Nyx at the same time, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to cut. The bow has been in the maybeboard for a while because of its versatility and synergy with Archetype of Courage, but I have the same problem in that I can't find a card I'd cut in favour of it. The bident would likely replace one of the enchantresses, but since I already have that very effect in the command zone at all times, I'd rather spread my avenues of card draw around a bit more (also lacking a mass haste enabler in these colours, so draw-on-cast triggers are quite invaluable).
They're all great suggestions though! I own those cards and will definitely be slotting them in some other EDH decks, as I feel there's still a lot of mythology to be covered in other colour combinations. Something U/G with lots of sea monsters, for example... I'll be a-brewin'. Thanks!
