Collective Effort Discussion

This advice is for going full Human Tribal, so no soldiers and spirits.

Add the Bloodlust Inciter (link does not work) to the deck for faster actions on creatures when you play them. Also if you want to use the Metallic Mimics I would suggest the user of Collective Effort as it puts +1/+1 counters on all creatures target player controls.

Delta-117 on Atraxa - Ohhhh, you wanted to play Magic...

Okay here are my promised suggestions.

Take out Winter Orb for Winding Constrictor, Trophy Mage for Master Biomancer, Tangle Wire for Eternal Witness, remove Sun Titan for a Ajani Unyielding, Supreme Verdict for I believe As Foretold even though not covered in your list if you can acquire one of these I recommend it, otherwise add maybe Vorel of the Hull Clade.

Beyond this, swap Stasis for Hardened Scales, Shred Memory for Scavenging Ooze, Perplex for Thrummingbird, Peacekeeper for either Authority of the Consulate (Will explain why soon) or Corpsejack Menace if not, Narset Transcendent for Glen Elendra Archmage, Muddle the Mixture for Abzan Charm, Luminarch Ascension for Aura Shards, Kiora, Master of the Depths for Forgotten Ancient, Idyllic Tutor for Collective Effort, Humility for I think Archangel of Thune if you have or can get one easily the card works well when you have of course your commander and Authority of the Consuls if you choose to run that, or just Rishkar's Expertise, Fabricate for Crystalline Crawler, Aura of Silence for Prime Speaker Zegana.

You could always add in some hydras to this like Primordial Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, and Lifeblood Hydra. Some other considerations are Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel which I recommend one or more (I use both) so you don't ever have to worry about discard when you play Prime Speaker Zegana or Rishkar's Expertise. I also think you should try and add Inspiring Call which further supports having something for unlimited handsize. Oath of Ajani, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Abzan Falconer, and Chasm Skulker(good if you include all of that card draw) are a few other ideas.

When I can again I will try and help you find a place for Viral Drake and any others I missed/suggested additionally.

I highly recommend 4x Collective Effort and 4x Renewed Faith (AKH version) for the sweet Gideon art!

Flalafell Great point on the synergy. I am making a few adjustments now (searching for a better possible one drop, maybe we will get a great one drop exert creature). I still kinda like the Sram's Expertise though as it has great synergy casting Collective Effort and Ahn-Crop Crasher. Can't wait to see the rest of the cards and continue brewing!

Agreed, If you put Martyr of Sands in, then you would have to put Squadron Hawk and if you did that, you would need Honor of the Pure... now you have a completely different deck.

Instead here try this card people have not seen the power of.

Collective Effort currently in standard its mostly useless. However this is modern and you are playing Counters, Check. Its also gives removal with the same spell making it not just a junk counter card. The Enchantment removal will be doubtfully useful most of the time but you never know.

trav1405 on Ajani the Lion King

Alright, to start with Mother of Runes is not modern legal and a good deck will always have a mana curve. This means not having and equal amount of each mana cost, generally, you want to deck to be centered around one cost. Also, because you have several high costing cards, such as Loxodon Smiter and the monstrosity of the Fleecemane Lion it would be a great idea to run some mana dorks.

Here is a list of changes I would consider making:

Overall, to make a competitive deck it needs a solid game plan and an efficient way to execute it, decks want to fall into the category of either aggro, combo or control. A fast mana curve and a consistent mana base are the keys to making a deck like this work in modern.

And then of course there is Path to Exile... This is a must, no doubt about that. And also good duel lands, Temple Garden and Windswept Heath are possibly the best, but on a budget there are always alternatives. Sunpetal Grove for instance.

Wyrmweird on weenie white but it's standard legal

Heya, I play a mono white as well, but control destroys it. After playing it for the season I cut Odric and added Gisela, the Broken Blade and Archangel Avacyn  Flip. Both are getting cheaper. Also 2 great cards are Blessed Alliance Collective Effort. Always Watching is a good enchant and it works well with Stitcher's Graft

Do you play at FNM? how does it work out with the deck?
