Consecrate / Consume Discussion

Hellos and welcome back to Magic. Charming Prince and Consecrate / Consume could add some nice flexibility. Dawn of Hope can add some nice card draw for you. Gideon Blackblade and Linden, the Steadfast Queen could do some work here. Kaya's Wrath feels like a board wipe that would fit this deck. Severed Strands could also work as some decent removal here. Vampire of the Dire Moon will probably work better as a blocker than Daybreak Chaplain . Hope this helps.

Orzhov Enforcer seems like a very useful card. Cost of mana 2 with deathtouch and afterlife 1! Can't go wrong with deathtouch! Should I add this creature, or add more of Consecrate / Consume ? I think that the best creature I could add is Orzhov Enforcer !

Thanks TriggerTheTaco for the suggestion. I'll try putting 2x Tithe Taker . Instead for Finale of Glory i'm using it as a plan B, Divine Visitation works too well with it and Dreadhorde Invasion , also the afterlifes. What do you suggest for more spot removal? I'm gonna test it for checking if Consecrate / Consume results unhelpful.

Divine Visitation and Finale of Glory are way too slow. Tithe Taker is so good he should be a four-of. Consecrate / Consume doesn't really seem all that helpful. I think this deck needs to be way more aggressive with more spot-removal.

Thanks for the quick comments hydrothermia! I think Golden Demise is better than Cry of the Carnarium , but just for this deck, since I can get Treasures if I have Revel in Riches out and destroy/kill creatures rather than exile them. I agree about needing more draw. I do have 3 Consecrate / Consume , but I may try to get a few Revitalize in there too. It's just tough with no creatures, feels like I need to go wild on the defense spells (destroy/exile).

Blood Divination , Sovereign's Bite and Consecrate / Consume are all decent card and not useless by any means but I feel like they could all be cut down in number by 1 or 2. And in their place maybe add 1 Kaya's Wrath (or any counter) or a few more creatures.
But I don't have much experience with this type of deck so don't listen to my advice too much.

Interesting take. I have a similar but different Mardu aggro/tokens deck, but I ended up going much heavier on white and red, and using cards like Tajic, Legion's Edge , Boros Challenger and Swiftblade Vindicator for 2 drop aggro/utility.
I also only have Glass of the Guildpact as my "maybeboard" card. I see a lot of people running Benalish Marshal in this deck but it's kind of color restrictive for a multicolor deck. Glass of the Guildpact is a bit cheaper and to the point.
On the other hand, I have four Unclaimed Territory in the land section, and that is very helpful with mana fixing and curiously missing from your deck here. Unbreakable Formation also makes a good sideboard card at the least due to this type of deck's weakness to removal and burn, and the issue of getting through blockers. I actually ended up mainboarding it because of this.
The other major weakness of this type of deck seems to be a lack of card advantage or draw engine. There isn't a whole lot I thought of to address that other than a few sideboard options like Consecrate / Consume and Priest of Forgotten Gods .
Here is/was my take on Mardu Humans/Tokens: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/27-02-19-tajics-legion/
