Battle Screech Discussion

For a token deck, you don't make very many tokens.
The very best token producer in Pauper is Sprout Swarm. This card is often a win condition in even non-token decks because of how powerful it is. I cannot recommend this card enough.
Battle Screech makes many tokens for very little effort. Fliers are a great bonus, too. This is another one of the best token producers out there.
In terms of card advantage and having a sticky board, Cenn's Enlistment is extremely powerful. It can turn all your late game lands into 1/1s to reinforce your board.
Other decent token producers are Icatian Crier, Maul Splicer (good top-end), Miming Slime (good with pump effects), Penumbra Spider, Raise the Alarm, Scatter the Seeds, Selesnya Evangel, Slime Molding (good with populate), Sporemound, Triplicate Spirits, Wake the Reflections and Walker of the Grove. There are few other good ones, but these see more play.
Ivy Lane Denizen is a great choice for you. Most of the tokens you'll make will be green, which will in turn grow whatever creature you want (or it basically turns all your 1/1s into 2/2s, which is huge).
Rampant Growth could easily be Sakura-Tribe Elder, which is basically the same card but with a 1/1 body for free that you can attack and block with.
I understand you want to maybe cycle them, but Safe Passage can be a big blowout in your favour.
In terms of cuts, I would think about cutting a lot of the non-token stuff. The cards that tap down creatures seem like a good place to start, since ideally you are going wider than your opponent anyways. Ardenvale Tactician and Expose Evil are easy cuts. Next, some of the more vanilla creatures that would be better served as more token producers, like Aven Skirmisher, Healer's Hawk, Faerie Guidemother, Pilgrim's Eye (you don't need this when playing Green), Sedge Scorpion and Voracious Typhon. Then, in your enchantments Bonds of Faith and Squire's Devotion seem like weaker options. For protection spells, you could be doing much better than Flicker of Fate.
I hope some of this helps you!

Hey, since your deck is low budget consider adding more cards to take advantage of your best card? Your best card is Tymna :)
You have the right idea with wanting to add Kunoros and Kambal. Kunoros because of menace evasion, lifelink and it's a hatebear. Kambal because he can be a repeatable source of life gain. With Tymna you want more creatures who have evasion so they can more easily do combat damage.
White has many good budget flying creatures. Hatebears who fly and can also disrupt your opponents are good in multiplayer Commander: Aven Mindcensor, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Hushbringer, Tomik, Distinguished Advokist, Archon of Absolution. Flying creatures who can create flying tokens: Emeria Angel, Archon of Sun's Grace can be repeatable sources of flying creatures. You also want more repeatable sources of life gain to safely keep triggering Tymna: Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Wingmate Roc, Answered Prayers.
Cards that create flying tokens are nice to go wide which helps to attack more than one opponent. Spirit Bonds and Sacred Mesa can be repeatable source of flying tokens. Lingering Souls, Spectral Procession, Battle Screech, Midnight Haunting create flying tokens. Entreat the Angels can create a lot of 4/4 Angels. With more creatures with flying then you can play Sephara, Sky's Blade who has a powerful effect for flying creatures, has lifelink and other flying creatures reduce her casting cost.
Other budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:
- Lands: Command Tower, Tainted Field, Esper Panorama, Terramorphic Expanse, Ash Barrens, Orzhov Basilica
- Ramp: Talisman of Hierarchy, Dark Ritual, Heraldic Banner
- Fliers: Remorseful Cleric, Healer's Hawk, Vampire Nighthawk, Aerial Responder
- Tutors: Diabolic Tutor
- Removal: Swords to Plowshares, Kaya's Guile, Mortify
- Removal: Heliod's Intervention, Cleansing Nova
I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?
Good luck with your deck.

I take it including Martial Glory was an accident right? Also I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Westvale Abbey Flip can only be included in decks that have Black, because the card's color identity is black.
Also is Sephara, Sky's Blade your commander? You can designate which creature is your commander by putting *CMDR* after their name in your decklist (Sephara, Sky's Blade *CMDR*)
You might like these cards: Hanged Executioner, Midnight Haunting, Rousing of Souls, Spectral Procession, Battle Screech, Benevolent Offering, Spectral Reserves, Triplicate Spirits, Bygone Bishop, Mentor of the Meek, Archon of Sun's Grace, Emeria Angel, Serra the Benevolent, Windbrisk Heights

Obviously, not all of those belong in the same deck.

So white is a pretty under-powered color in both modern and pioneer and I want to build a deck focusing on white cards for either of those formats, likely modern, and would like card and/or strategy suggestions.
Here's a list of cards I'm thinking about to get started, I just really don't know how to fit them together: Porphyry Nodes , Flagstones of Trokair , Recruit the Worthy , Sky Hussar , Squadron Hawk , Battle Screech , Legion's Landing Flip, Gift of Estates , Restore Balance , Generous Gift
Edit: I know the meta decks for white (D&T, Soul Sisters, Martyr Proc) and want to find a new W or Wx deck that uses weird mechanics and synergies specific to white in a semi-competitive way.

I won't link the card leak here as I thought there was a rule about linking non-officially spoiled cards, but basically the new Elspeth is kind of unique.
She costs and starts off at 5, and she only has minus abilities.
Her -1 gives two creatures +2/+1 until end of turn.
Her -2 gives you two 1/1 white Soldier tokens.
Her -3 gives you 5 life.
She also has an Escape ability where you pay and exile 4 cards from your graveyard, and you cast her FROM your graveyard.
So this immediately tells me you want a graveyard full if cards to chuck. I think the best way to go about doing this is to build pillow fort. We can use instants and sorceries to fill the bin, spread the token love, and fuel our Elspeth engine for returning her.
What I'm thinking is that there are approximately 81 cards that fit this description.
We flood the board in tokens, fill the graveyard, use whichever minus ability is most adventitious and when she dies we pitch her to the graveyard and recast. This circumvents the commander tax and keeps our engine going.
For our Signature Spell, Battle Screech gives us the ability to further circumvent commander tax by using the flashback cost. We cast it for two Hawks, flashback it into the command zone. We now just cast it twice without tax. Additionally, as it sits in the yard it's effectively free fodder for Elspeth's Escape ability as it will go to our command zone. Not to mention two 1/1 flyers is great for harassment and pressure to keep other Oathbreakers bay.
Lastly, her +2/+1 on two 1/1 flyers = 6 damage in the air each turn. That's really good value.
Thoughts? Do you think she could be viable in pillowfort / white weenies? I know there are strictly better mono-white Planeswalkers out there, but I think her Escape ability could be interesting if we can figure out how to use it appropriately.
