I wish Elspeth's soldier tokens were also human, because then Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant would get super beefy. I haven't added either of them to my deck yet, but they're very tempting.

I never said they didn't print powerful Human cards--to the contrary, I said that every rotation there's a couple strong Humans, but not a significant mass to make them a viable option in that particular format.

However, a couple strong cards a set builds on itself. Champion of the Parish might not have very many viable friends in its Standard rotation, but put him in a format with Meddling Mage, Mantis Rider, etc. and suddenly your Champion of the Parish is a terror to behold.

I did make one slight error in my initial post--Innistrad featured Humans as one of the supported tribes, juxtaposed against the creatures of the night. Still, besides a couple powerful Humans in that set, I don't think there were enough to make them all that competitive, but I'd have to do a bit of looking into that to verify.

Yeah, because Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish, two of the best 'tribal' cards, giving a huge amount of boost to a normally aggressive tribe, never were something that Wizards wanted to print.

As the title suggests, I’m looking for help with my mono-white Human Tribal deck. Any suggestions are appreciated, but keep in mind that this is for casual multiplayer games. Here’s the list: Casual White Human Tribal

Also, I don’t have the budget for Cavern of Souls and other expensive cards like that. I can go for Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, but I would rather not buy cards that cost much more than that.

Thanks for the help!

Still looking for input. Deck has been play tested in current format. Champion of the Parish is a nice addition. That makes 3 viable targets for Dragon Throne of Tarkir with Ajani's Pridemate and Crusader of Odric.

That would depend on what way you want to go. You could go more human route since most of your creatures are humans. If that is the case i would remove Earthshaker Khenra I previously suggested for Champion of the Parish or Non Human Goblin Guide would fit in here pretty well possibly in the angel spot to make it just more agro early turn.

Another good card to try to fit is Glory-Bound Initiate it can work as a good beater if needed in the Earthshaker Khenra it might be better but that would require testing.

I am not sure if I like Dauntless Bodyguard in here after second look it just feels slow since your a rush down deck. you need something faster. Guide in that spot works well as well as Glory-Bound Initiate

Personally I am not a fan of Cartouche of Solidarity as turn 1-3 that mana could be used for a creature.

You could also go lighter on the spells, and include Thalia, Guardian of Thraben which screws over a lot of decks that are heavy on spells.

Chained to the Rocks Could a be decent card if you have mountains consistently and face a lot of creature decks.

If you go heavier white and only use red creatures that have W and R you could use Honor of the Pure. If you go mainly red creature with only white have red also you could use Legion's Initiative

Path of Mettle  Flip COuld be fun to build around also if you use Goblin Guides and other things with haste, first strike ect

As for side Rest in Peace, and Stony Silence is good. If there is budget restrictions maybe can work on a more budget side. Tormod's Crypt, or Relic of Progenitus are both really good also and possibly better in budget. Abrade is also good side budget.
