Avacyn's Pilgrim Discussion
3 days ago
Some budget friendly suggestions (I have a very similar deck that I have been playing a long time)
- Spirit Mantle
- Cartouche of Strength
- Armadillo Cloak
- Birds of Paradise
- Avacyn's Pilgrim
- Nature's Lore
- Contested Cliffs
I have found haste not really as important as it would be in other decks. Unless you can get uril, get haste, and get auras on the same turn it doesn't help much. Xenagos is OK since he helps buff too.
I would remove Iroas, Helm of the Gods, reliquary tower, spirit loop, boar umbra, and kodama's reach to start.
Also shocklands would be a nice upgrade over some of those ETB tapped lands. Those a bit more expensive though.

because you're sporting both the shock and buddy land, you can run Nature's Lore which will get either. Farseek is another option - Three Visits is the end goal but that card is disgustingly expensive.
Sakura-Tribe Elder is a solid ramp card, hits the board and gives you a blocker until you crack it. Talisman of Unity is basically Selesnya Signet number two (but in some cases better). Priest of Titania works really well with Rhys and can potentially generate a lot of mana. Avacyn's Pilgrim is good in that it fixes off green. Birds of Paradise is a no brainer.
By combining these with even cultivate and Kodama's Reach, you will increase your chances of hitting early game ramp and will let you land your beaters much earlier. Because having 6-7 mana available on turn 4 is what aggro wants to do.

I enjoy a good budget deck, and so I know some of the cards. I would recommend focusing on one theme, as soul sisters encourages a swarm like deck while exalted gains very little from life gain. However, should you want to keep both themes which is possible, I would suggest making a more soul sister focused deck, adding some ramp creatures like Avacyn's Pilgrim and use Sublime Archangel to weaponize your small creatures as well as Lightmine Field to stave off aggrieved decks.

I'd be really afraid of board wipes and Ratchet Bomb so something like Faith's Shield might be useful - it can protect anything on the battlefield or even everything if you're low enough on life. Gods Willing isn't too bad, either. Heroic Intervention would be even better.
I feel like a bit of ramp might be useful - even dropping just 2x lands for 2x Fertile Ground would be worth it, but I'd suggest going for 4x ramp cards - Birds of Paradise or Utopia Sprawl being the staples, but even Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves or Avacyn's Pilgrim, etc would be useful - not just to reach your big 6+ CMC spells a turn sooner, but also as chump blockers and early targets for removal.

Overrun could be too demanding on your mana in a deck with 21 lands. Cast Out is just bad. If you want removal, pick a Path to Exile. Remove something other than creatures? Oblivion Ring. Draw a card... another Tireless Tracker. And Collected Company is a mainboard card, 4-of. If you want to occasionally speed it up a bit, you could also add Avacyn's Pilgrim.
My own GW humans deck: Humans +1/+1. A bit more focus on using +1/+1 counters for growing big, and no evasion.

Trifas, I am going to 2/2 Elvish Mystic and Avacyn's Pilgrim. I feel like one of the problems with the deck is I don't have ramp. I have stuff to get me the colors I need, but I don't have stuff to give me quantity. I want to put in the tron lands, but I can't afford to take out colors. I want to put in Hedron Archive but thats a 4 drop. I've also been thinking about Cultivator's Caravan but thats. a 3 drop. I need a cheaper drop, but not as expensive as Birds of Paradise. I am going to maybe board bird of paradise, and when I can afford them, get them.
