What about mono W soldier stompy? Daru Warchief wants a home!

Additionally, I thought of a UB mill deck as a good aggressive deck. Glimpse the Unthinkable

For starters, this looks like a fun deck to play. Swarming the board with tokens is always an exciting strategy. I find myself agreeing with ZendikariWol though about swapping commanders. This kind of deck would probably prefer a commander that costs less than 7 because that's a lot.

Also, your mana curve is rather high. Lowering it means you'll have more to play on earlier turns more often.

Here are some cards I might recommend adding:

As a general comment, beware of symmetrical effects like Leyline of the Meek and Crusade.

Looks pretty tasty, and it's a great start!

I would take out Quest for the Holy Relic, Open the Armory, and Strength of Arm due to not really having that much equipment. I would add 3 more Plains (I would also try to balance your mana better, try less Mountains and more Plains). If that mana fixing becomes an issue, add in Evolving Wilds, Myriad Landscape, Warped Landscape, Terminal Moraine, Arid Mesa, Naya Panorama, or Terramorphic Expanse. I would recommend adding at least 3-5 fetch lands to help mana fixing.

If you take out Armory of Iroas, Murder Investigation, and Coat of Arms, you could free up the last two spots for the 38 lands.

I did notice that a lot of your soldiers have a synergy with equipment cards, yet you only run 2 equipment cards. I was a bit confused by this. I would recommend taking them all out and replacing them. I would also recommend trying to run 2 more soldiers (you are at that tribal sweet spot with all the soldier creatures, but Boros is known for being aggressive with instant/sorcery AND creatures). 30 creatures is great aggro. Here are some creatures I would recommend: Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Blaze Commando, Sunhome Guildmage, Preeminent Captain, Field Marshal, Daru Warchief, Ballyrush Banneret, Veteran Swordsmith, Rhox Pikemaster, or Catapult Squad. The cards I'd recommend to take out are Auriok Steelshaper, Auriok Survivors, Auriok Windwalker, Conclave Phalanx, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Relic Seeker, Fated Conflagration, Arrows of Justice.

You already have a lot of key cards. I do see that your mana is very unbalanced. I would add more Plains. If you just take out one Mountain at a time and switch it for a Plains until your Pie Chart for your mana is "perfectly" aligned. It won't always be there, but the closer the better. With this being a tribal deck, it would help to have cards like Cavern of Souls, but that's a make-or-break card for you wallet. I actually don't even have one (it's one of the last 9 cards I WANT for my Gishath deck). Soldiers won't really get a lot of heat at any of my play groups, so getting countered shouldn't be that big of an issue.

Here is what I would take out and add:

- Quest for the Holy Relic
- Open the Armory
- Strength of Arm
- Armory of Iroas
- Coat of Arms
- Murder Investigation
- Auriok Steelshaper
- Auriok Survivors
- Auriok Windwalker
- Conclave Phalanx
- Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas
- Relic Seeker
- Fated Conflagration
- Arrows of Justice

+ Evolving Wilds
+ Terramorphic Expanse
+ Naya Panorama
+ 3x Plains
+ Sunhome Guildmage
+ Brimaz, King of Oreskos
+ Daru Warchief
+ Rhox Pikemaster
+ Ballyrush Banneret
+ Field Marshal
+ Veteran Swordsmith
+ Preeminent Captain

Rebalance Mountains and Plains to match the Pie Chart

Sorry for the ranty post. I get a bit into it.

Timmmmey on Mono White Soldier, Help Needed

What do you think is wrong with your deck? This is your deck, not mine; here's what I suggest.

Throw in some Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish. They help give you an early lead in the early game.

I feel like Hero of Bladehold costs too much money and mana for what she does.

Are you sure you want to run that many planeswalkers? I run Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip because he is a cheap creature that can flip into a planeswalker. Plus I feel that Elspeth, Sun's Champion costs too much mana too late into the game to be useful as well. You need to lower your average converted mana cost.

If you want the deck to be cheaper run only Plains if you have to.

Daru Warchief isn't legal in modern btw.

Hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Timmmmey.

Maybe change Daru Warchief with The Immortal Sun from 'Rivals of Ixalan'.

Daru Warchief is an excellent soldier Lord.

Casual is fine, but I would suggest picking a format and building with it in mind. You have Modern selected, but cards like Daru Warchief aren't in it. If you do decide to make the deck modern however, I would suggest making it more aggresive with: War Falcon, Raise the Alarm, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Metallic Mimic, and more copies of Precinct Captain. Finally, if you need removal, Path to Exile is a great modern staple
