Cultivator's Caravan Discussion

I'm brewing Traxos of my own too, right now. I think if you want to get Traxos out and beat with him, it's better to narrow down the deck towards Voltron strategy: less creatures and more equipments. Also, Aetherworks Marvel , Cultivator's Caravan and Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , doesn't fit that well with this type of deck, AM while a great value engine, it needs you to sac a lot to make worth it, and the vehicles want you to run a lot of creatures, without counting that there's many other better ways to get what they offer. Of course, that's only my opinion, good luck with the deck XD

Yes, abilities like Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice 's trigger and resolve on the beginning of combat step; steps and phases wait to end until all players have passed in succession over an empty stack; and you can activate abilities any time you have priority unless they say otherwise. The steps of the combat phase are:
Beginning of Combat
(possibly a second Combat Damage Step if any creatures had first strike or double strike)
End of Combat
Aurelia as I said before triggers and resolves during Beginning of Combat. You then get priority and can activate the crew ability of the Cultivator's Caravan . Attackers are, unsurprisingly, declared during the Declare Attackers Step and the Caravan will be a creature.

Its good that you are starting with making a deck based off a precon. Some of my best decks are based of Standard Finals Decks. Its one of the best ways to really get going. That doesn't mean, however, that you are always right and that I'm not going to give some advice.
While some cards are used in Standard against some matchups, when you play Modern, you have access to a much larger pool of cards. With this in mind cards like Cast Out and Harsh Mentor aren't really viable in Modern. Path to Exile is better than Cast Out in pretty much everyway, whereas there are better options for hate than Harsh Mentor .
If you are looking for some anti-graveyard cards, I'd suggest Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of the Void , Relic of Progenitus , Rest in Peace or Nihil Spellbomb . Any of those are better than Crook of Condemnation in their own way.
There are also some cards that just don't seem to fit. Why do you run Celestial Dawn ? Is mana fixing really that much of a problem for this deck? I just don't see it. And how much does Cultivator's Caravan really help? I mean, you just spent 3 mana and at least 3 power on a mana dork who is admittedly a 5/5, but still. I would look at maybe Smuggler's Copter just for the cheaper price and the ability to refill your hand.
All in all, pretty impressive for your first even Mtg deck. +1 from me.

I don't really like stifle-like cards, as they merely delay inevitable. Perhaps I can cut Incubation/Incogruity in favor of Chaos Warp , since pure anti-creature factor is not that important unless it's Avacyn, Angel of Hope I am dealing with.
Yes, those are good options to be removed. Perhaps, even Wayfarer's Bauble could be a better option than Cultivator's Caravan , since lands are harder to remove. However, I am not sure about Wolfir Silverheart - he is practically 8/8, and +4/+4 is a huge buff to anything - like Impervious Greatwurm which I am considering right now. 20/20 idestructible, with Surrak flashing for surprise, can be huge. It was demoralising for my opponents in every game of playtest to lose 15+ life in a single swoop (turning it into archenemy very fast).

Funny thing Luarviq, Deadeye/Peregrine( Palinchron ) combo not as bad as you would think. There are many ways to actually deal with it. Provided you have the mana on the time as well. Like in response to ETB trigger you can remove Deadeye, or response to activating soulbond.
Some cards that do this are:
In regards to Defense of the Heart , there should really be no reason why that stays on the battlefield longer than one rotation with it being active. There are several great removals that are cheap and decent, ex. Nature's Claim , Krosan Grip , Naturalize , Deglamer , Unravel the Aether to name a few.
I am a fan of tutors, because they lead to deck consistency, it does goes against the spirit of EDH but I am a competitive player so I like to win.
Cards you can consider cutting:
- Cultivator's Caravan - There are better rocks than this one
- Altered Ego - If your running a clone effect there are better alternatives
- Champion of Rhonas - It meh at best, not as useful when your ramping a lot
- Savage Knuckleblade - There are better options you can run than this
- Wolfir Silverheart - For 5 CMC there are better beat face creatures
- Berserkers' Onslaught - Same as above 5 CMC is a big investment
- Shamanic Revelation - I would run something like Hunter's Insight over this one
