Here some suggestion:


Crib Swap (work well with the second ability of Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero ) and replace Celestial Flare

Condemn and replace Dispense Justice

Swords to Plowshares and replace Glimpse the Sun God


Ramosian Revivalist and replace High Sentinels of Arashin i think it will be better in youre Marath deck.

Mirror Entity and replace Hundred-Handed One

Changeling Hero and replace Pious Warrior

Theyre other humans you could replace for theses rebels. Keep them in youre maybebord for now Lawbringer Ballista Squad Lightbringer

Mana Ramp: (try other cards first, just put them in you're maybebord) Knight of the White Orchid Burnished Hart Gift of Estates

Humans: Crovax, Ascendant Hero and replace Salvage Scout

Angels: Reya Dawnbringer and replace Kytheon's Irregulars

Lands: ( replace 5 plains for those cards)

Mistveil Plains


Emeria, The Sky Ruin (that cards worth it money in a mono white)

Evolving Wilds

Terramorphic Expanse

I'd recommend Ballista Squad instead of shield bearer. Ballistas are wonderfully useful in a defensive deck and can be summoned by defiant vanguard and resurrected by the revivalist. And banding is confusing as heck.

It seems you missed one of the vows; Vow of Duty.

War Cadence can both be a bargaining tool, and make your opponents more enticing to attack.

War Tax is another Propaganda effect.

If you've got Felidar Cub on here, you might as well include Kami of Ancient Law, Ronom Unicorn, and Keening Apparition.

Perhaps Seal of Removal and Angelic Shield should be in there with the other seals?

Some pacifism effects only conditionally shut down the creature they're on, and thus can be used politically. Manacles of Decay and Gelid Shackles, for example.

Catapult Squad plus an ample amount of soldiers gives you incredible control over combat math. Players have to start asking you to let their creatures survive combat. Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile and Ballista Squad do similar work.

The thing is that I would normally not cast Ballista Squad directly, rather I likely usually put it directly from my library onto the battlefield using Defiant Vanguard, so the extra two copies wouldn't actually help me get it out. The only reason I have two is in case one is taken out with removal. I do tend to think that those couple are a bit weak, especially the Amrou Seekers, which is why I only run one of each, but not sure which rebels to replace them with.

No data for this card yet.
