What about Aven Wind Guide? He is not a zombie unless embalmed, but he would give all my zombie tokens flying & vigilance..

I might remove the Thraben Inspectors and replace them with two Oketra the Trues for those reasons, redknight44. If I have Oketra, the Aven Wind Guide, and Odric out, all my creatures will have flying + vigilance + double strike + indestructible. The Inspectors are there mostly to give something early for Ulvenwald Mysteries to work with, but I think the Trail of Evidence will hold up in pulling out some clues.

As Jay said, Lord of the Accursed is a must, start considering embalmed and eternalised cards also, as the tokens themselves are zombies,

How about Sacred Cat to start with???

I'd probably have Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun over Aven Wind Guide but that's just me,

I'd also probably toss in some Unconventional Tactics because it's ridiculously good, word of advice, using the wizards card set archive on the main saite for scrolling through the sets, and picking out gems between the non-rares.

yea 32 lands is overkill, control decks only run ~26 and your an aggro-midrange deck with an average cmc of 2.44 ... 23 lands should be more then sufficient (especially with no real demands for leaving mana open) but you can get away with 24 if you prefer ... (i would drop 6/5 islands and 3 plains)

that being said, it feels like you have a main goal, then alot of filler cards that seem redundant or dont really do what you need them to do.

cards like Aerial Guide, Aven Wind Guide, Mighty Leap and Cartouche of Knowledge give flying to an already mostly flying deck, and Slither Blade, Fan Bearer and Cartouche of Solidarity are okay but feel like they belong in a different deck, with a different goal.

[dauntless aven] does feel like a good fit for the deck, and you can shift the deck to make cards like Aven Wind Guide more useful with cards like Oketra's Monument to make the ability more relevant, and Glyph Keeper as a solid finisher.

id also consider running some countermagic, even if its just Supreme Will, Turn Aside or Failure and maybe consider Cast Out.

cyclinggamer thank you so much on advice of Aven Wind Guide

Thanks! I made some changes based on what you suggested. Hopefully it's a little less of a mess now.

I couldn't add Declaration in Stone or Thraben Inspector because I'm adamantly avoiding any cards that rotate when Ixalan drops.

I'm also avoiding Anointed Procession for the time being because of money. I try to keep the cost of individual cards below $2-3 in most cases because it adds up quickly.

I kept the Oketra's Monument even though I made some changes because it does give more targets for Aven Wind Guide to grant flying and vigilance to.

Have you considered God-Pharaoh's Gift ? With Anointed Procession you get 2 4/4s on each of your turns and with Aven Wind Guide the tokens have flying and vigilance.

If you're already doing Esper and zombie tokens, check out Aven Wind Guide. Nothing like armies of zombie tokens flying at you.
