Champion of the Parish Discussion

I wouldn't.

Try it out, see how it runs now. You might be able to cut back to 19 lands... maybe even 18, if you feel comfortable. If you do so, then replace those lands with Experiment One.

If you wanted, you could replace that last non-human (Cenn's Tactician) with Experiment One. With all human creatures Thalia's Lieutenant + Champion of the Parish always hit their triggers. Those two and Anafenza will be your star performers.

Also, Fleecemane Lions & Topan Freeblades could be cut to make room for Thalia's Lieutenant & Champion of the Parish. Lions are strong, but they aren't synergizing too much with anything else here.

Or you could test out different creature setups, see what you like best.

Hm. I would suggest Hardened Scales, Thalia's Lieutenant, Champion of the Parish and Dromoka's Command, for starters. And at least one Gavony Township. Maybe take out the 4CC creatures & add Collected Company?

I would go with Honor of the Pure > Path of Bravery. I understand the extra life-gain on attack but I like the idea of it dropping a turn earlier (and potentially be able to blow out affinity's 1 toughness creatures ;p). i would also look into Return to the Ranks > Immortal Servitude. While I do like Immortal Servitude you can get thinks like your Mentor of the Meek or Ajani's Pridemate back with Return to the Ranks. Not to mention you get to stack how they enter so Pridemade can become MASSIVE upon entry.There's another way you can go with the deck as well. If you get Thalia's Lieutenant, Champion of the Parish and Thraben Inspector with Ajani's Pridemate, Mentor of the Meek and Doomed Traveler you have a cool human synergy Soul Sisters deck for very little $$$$. Sorry for the novel, I just LOVE the Soul Sisters deck. A really good person to watch on youtube is The Rouge Deckbuilder. He plays SS competitively and has like 4 different builds of the deck. Good Luck and have fun!

Maybe if you are worried about getting mana flooded you can play fetch lands such as Arid Mesa? I was going to comment on your other land choices as well - Battlefield Forge is quite painful for you since only 18 out of 42 nonland cards in your deck has a colorless mana symbol; Temple of Triumph comes into play tapped unconditionally and Temples usually only see play in decks that need to search for a particular card (combo), or control decks.

And yeah sure, you are definitely right in saying that the combo in a self labelled combo deck is not the only way you can win. You only play 2 of each card, it's more like a gotcha! if you happen to draw them.

You sound like you place more stock in going down the aggro route hitting with weenies, maybe you'd want to try Champion of the Parish? He should grow pretty fast with the majority of your deck being Humans and with the Norin triggers. He can be Pridemate 5-8. Otherwise, the rest of your deck are 1/1s who are probably not getting through in combat. Wall of Omens seems odd in this deck - I'd imagine you can gain enough life without having to chump with it. Manamorphose is redundant if you can fix your colours through fetches - it is only a card draw since it replaces itself.

Felidar Guardian and Restoration Angel are good ideas for this deck. They also trigger Ranger of Eos for more card advantage. I'm going to try some number of those cards in my list. Cheers!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but you talk a lot about buffing Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant with Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Captain of the Watch but the tokens they produce are not human. They are just soldiers. Granted you have a lot of humans already and I don't think your deck will suffer too much over it, but it's something to consider.
