Declaration in Stone Discussion

As for the deck itself, I feel there are some better options than what you currently have. Don't worry, I'm not going to be that guy that says "you should play Gideon" and end the post. However, Gideon is a house and probably should be in the 75 somewhere (Either Gideon really).

Anywho, Expose Evil isn't worth a card slot. It should be actual remove like Cast Out, Stasis Snare, Declaration in Stone or even Shock. Heroic Intervention should probably be in the 75 but probably not the main deck. Look at Blossoming Defense instead for the main deck. Glory-Bound Initiate should be a 4-of as it's one of the best cards in the deck. Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip feels too slow and clunky. Plus he's not a human on the flip side which is unfortunate. Also Expedition Envoy isn't worth it if you're not balls to the wall aggro. You have a bit of both aggro and midrange which can work but can also, again, be clunky. Lastly, I think Combat Celebrant needs to have early haste in order for him to be actually worth it. Him coming down late with a Samut in play seems great but if you're curving out with him, not so much. Him having one toughness also really hurts and considering he's a 3-drop, you'll always play him off curve if you want to have him with at least 2 toughness with Always Watching .

Final Thoughts: If you want to do a human deck, I think it's best to go all out aggro with 16+ 1-drops with a curve maxing out at 3 or 4(Gideon). I think what you want to do, based on your card choices, is a midrange deck. I'm a midrange player at heart so I might be a little bias but I think, at least in these colors, midrange might be better in general. I've been working on a Naya midrange deck for a week or two now and it's really shaping up after a lot of testing. Check it out here. If you have questions about my deck, your deck or think I'm stupid, let me know!

Declaration in Stone might be a little better than Immolating Glare since you can get rid of their gods with it.

Unless they ban cat, I can tell you right now you almost certainly want Stasis Snare over Declaration in Stone and Blessed Alliance. Also, worth noting that red gives you access to Honored Crop-Captain, Hanweir Garrison, and Shock, tho I'm not actually sure if that is better.

Liliana, the Last Hope is just an amazing planeswalker. She will definitely shine more in match ups with lots of x/1's and will get boarded out against decks with big flyers which is why I have one in the main and one in the side. You should have no shortage of ground blockers for her which can often force opponents into bad attacks just to keep her from using her ultimate. Of course if you ultimate her are almost certain to win the game. If for budget reasons you want to take her out I understand but she definitely is better than Cemetery Recruitment which would take her spot as grave recursion. If I find in testing that I need more card draw I would definitely consider it though. Big lily seems amazing but 5 cmc keeps me from running more than the 1 with the low land count this deck wants.

I did consider Anguished Unmaking it just seems less efficient than my other included removal. If there are still a lot of problem artifacts in the upcoming standard I will definitely put a couple in the sideboard. Similar to putting Declaration in Stone in if there are tokens decks.

I ran a very similar list for a while, though I yours seems much more polished and versatile. I found one of my biggest problems was losing my counter generators to removal, especially Mimic. A sneaky option I found some success with was the land Ruins of Oran-Rief, as it can pair well with Hidden Stockpile.

Another was dealing with Walking Ballistas and Verdurous Gearhulks, and they're everywhere. That's why Declaration in Stone stayed in my mainboard.

I really like your list though... enough to give mine another try!

I think some of your card choices are interesting. I am not sure why you are running immolating glare over Grasp of Darkness or Murder. Also, I do not see the purpose of Thraben Inspector and Declaration in Stone except for maybe Scrapheap Scrounger. I think Anguished Unmaking is a sideboard card and Ruinous Path should be a 2 or 3 of main board instead. If you are running inspector for the clue to draw a card, I would think Painful Truths would be better if you added aether hub's to your mana base so you can converge for 3.

Heya, I'm working with a similar deck. I took out the creatures with a 1 toughness due to the amount of -1 counters about to hit standard. Glory-Bound Initiate and Combat Celebrant are exceptions, but Metallic Mimic and Expedition Envoy seems fragile. I don't think Inventor's Apprentice is worth it without mimic, but I could be way off. If exert turns out to be strong, I would favor exert cards over mimic, lieutenant (another 1 toughness creature), and apprentice. Or maybe the +1 counters work well enough to overcome the -1 counters that are going to be in standard.

I don't see enough ways to deal non-combat damage for Soul-Scar Mage to be utilized, but I can see using it in a deck with more damage spells.

Declaration in Stone seems to be a good card for white decks. Blessed Alliance is also a good white instant. Cast Out instead of Stasis Snare. By Force should be useful. Magma Spray instead of Shock against graveyard shenanigans.

Well, that's more or less how I'm changing my humans deck. It's mono white atm, but these red cards and exert make W/R a fun looking deck to build.

Hey there!

I'm always happy to give feedback about Standard decks.

I can see already that you've got some great things going on with this deck.

Nature's Way should be used by more people as it's amazing, and Declaration in Stone is definitely needed in the upcoming Standard.

I'll take a good look at your deck over the next couple of days and give you some notes.

Oh and to link your deck click on the "Download/Export" button just to the left of your deck list. It will show you the "slug" of your deck.

Write the slug between [ [ and ] ] with no spaces - [ [ the-revolting-revolt-deck ] ] (no spaces between any of the brackets and the slug - and you will get a link like this The Revolting Revolt Deck
