Boros Elite Discussion

You might consider anthem effects instead, Lightning Helix, etc. Also: Boros Elite is a reasonable card, but does suffer a drawback in that it's not red for Denizen. Goblin Guide is a really good alternative, or even Mogg Fanatic.

Another way I can phrase that: You want Battalion to turn on ASAP, because Boros Elite and Legion Loyalist benefit the most from the buff. I want to do that turn 2 if possible (T1 Boros Elite, T2 two hasty 1-drop creatures), but never later than Turn 3. So having a deck with a whopping 16 cards at 3 mana and above just means that your time-to-win slows down. I'd keep only the best of your curve-toppers: Firemane Avenger, because it's evasive and is also Lightning Helix on a stick. All of your slower 2- and 3-drops, I would cut in exchange for either better aggression (Relentless Raptor, Sky Terror) or efficient removal like Helix finishers like Insult // Injury/Onward // Victory or more Boros Charm.
Despite that advice, I love this deck and the intent behind it! It's always refreshing to see such a thematic build!

You might want to consider putting a Child of Alara in there. Also, since I can see that you're going for a warrior synergy thing, you might want to put some cards with Battalion in there (ex. Boros Elite. Also, here's a couple cards I dug up; Rushblade Commander, Heroic Reinforcements, and Brawl-Bash Ogre

I tried to construct a pure battalion deck years ago, but I never did it justice. However, this looks like a lot of fun. Just from my experience I found Frontline Medic to be a really effective card since it adds survivability to your creatures while also serving as a counterspell option. Other than that though I would recommend other one-drop beaters like Boros Elite because it's so gosh darn good in a deck like this and maybe even consider Tajic, Blade of the Legion possibly over Aurelia, the Warleader since you can't get her out on the field until late game.

Windbrisk Heights could be useful, even though it enters the battlefield tapped. not too sure about Boros Elite, you have to jump through quite a hoop to trigger its special ability. Thraben Inspector, like someone else suggested would be a good replacement. Or maybe Harsh Mentor, since you have red mana abailable anyway.

no offense dude, but Student of Warfare is not a good card. you have to put 3 mana into it before it becomes a 3/3 with first strike. compare that to Mirran Crusader which is also 3 mana. you have too many noncreatures to be using Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. removal is too common in modern to reliably trigger battalion on Boros Elite or Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip. since the deck is mono-white, theres no reason for Flagstones of Trokair or any of the fetch lands. you're just paying life for no reason at that point. again no offense, but its not "perfect" like you describe. the land base should be 16 plains and 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, then you can use permanents that cost double white to keep your devotion up. Gather the Townsfolk is painfully slow, and Smuggler's Copter does not benefit from Honor of the Pure. cut the copters, and max the Honor of the Pure and Path to Exile.

I have been meddling around with my Modern GW Humans Deck, it's honestly a solid deck to play in the format, but it's far from complete, and lately it's not quite doing so well in the format, as it's been struggling to plow through against Grixis Death's Shadow Decks at my meta, and I'm wondering if there's any cards that might help deal with them better. Along with any cards that might finish other decks off faster.
My sideboard also needs a bit of a redo. It's been a while since I last played in modern and I'm wondering what cards the deck is better off with, Other than Rest in Peace. I'm also considering kicking out Boros Elite for something else like Thraben Inspector.
Lastly I'm thinking about adding humans of 1 more color to this deck, but as I've said in my deck description I don't intend to buy cards online just yet.
Here's the deck: Innistrad's Comrades (IRL Modern Humans)
