with only 6 humans, I'm not sure Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant are the best choices. Also, any time counters are involved I like Champion of Lambholt

4x Champion of the Parish would help tremendously. so would Mikaeus, the Lunarch.

Hey, good start upgrading the precon on a budget.

28 lands is not enough land for an avg. CMC of 3.4 which is high. I recommend 36 lands and adding Knight of the White Orchid. First strike with a two drop Human is good with +2 pump from Jirina. You want to take more advantage of Jirina who's a four drop anthem effect for Humans. This means you want to consistently be able to play more impactful one drops (Champion of the Parish)/two drops (Thalia's Lieutenant)/three drops (Frontline Medic) to attack with the turn you play Jirina.

Tribal creature strategies in Commander fold to board wipes. To combat this play more repeatable instant speed indestructible protection (Etchings of the Chosen), creature recursion (Phyrexian Reclamation), reanimation (Alesha, Who Smiles at Death) and noncreature repeatable sources of Humans (Outlaws' Merriment).


Budget lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Hello Rorolith thanks for passing by :)

You're right about exalted and battle cry. Akrasan Squire are here to power up Champion of the Parish to put pressure on turn two. I have to try to replace Akrasan Squire by Dauntless Bodyguard to see if it's better. I already thought about Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip but don't know if it can fit on this deck. Sure he can be transformed as a planeswalker but will he survive ? At least Dauntless Bodyguard can save me a Champion of the Parish.

About Grand Abolisher it was in a previous version of the deck but as you stated it's a slower cast and if I have to choose I prefer receive a Lightning Bolt to an offensive card because it's the spirit for this deck haha. But I agree with you it's definitely a sideboard card.

bChulane doesn't really go with any of the tempo disruption strategies that Modern Humans has. It really feels like a normal edh creature deck, which just happens to use the same creature type.

Modern Humans is entirely based on Kitesail Freebooter's ability with Meddling Mage to shut out combo decks, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben's ability to slow them down and protect your board, and the Champion of the Parish, Mantis Rider, Thalia's Lieutenant setup to end the game at fast speeds with the otherwise weak hatebears. Adding in the rest of the deck you see that the goal of Humans isn't to combo with humans, but to be an anti-noncreature deck with hatebears, which use Aether Vial to get around counterspells, and then use Cavern of Souls as well as a tribal base just to pump out a bit more damage and consistency in the Modern format.

Drawing cards and playing additional lands as you speed through your deck of creatures isn't Humans, it's much more akin to Legacy Elves.

Yes, Champion of the Parish will trigger separately for each human entering the battlefield and the replacement effect from Hardened Scales will apply to each trigger.

The Champion actually gets 12 counters in this example. Reverent Hoplite is itself a human, and because it's on the battlefield when it triggers that means your devotion to white is 5, meaning a total of 6 humans enter the battlefield (Hoplite + 5 tokens).

Say I have Champion of the Parish and Hardened Scales on the board. I have a total of 4 devotion to white including the 1 from Champion of the Parish. Now, say I cast Reverent Hoplite which triggers a total of 4 white human soldier tokens to enter the battlefield. Are each of the 4 tokens considered a separate trigger for Champion of the Parish? If so does that mean that Hardened Scales also triggers for each of the 4 counters meaning that Champion of the Parish receives a total of 8 counters?
