Devoted Druid Discussion

The average turn to win is around ~5, some can do it reliably as early as 4. You have a powerful top end of the curve, so granted you make it until T7-8, you can do some work. But Liliana of the Dark Realms is just too late and unreliable. I don't know what you tested your deck against, but I can guarantee you that any moderately competitive player is not going to let you get to that Emblem without paying a massive price at least. To illustrate that, there has been exactly one (!) deck in the last 3 years of Magic that had a legitimate tournament finish (16th) with Liliana of the Dark Realms in the maindeck, and it was a totally different deck that actually had 4 mana as their highest mana cost in the entire deck.
If you just play with a couple of friends and everyone is casual about it, cards like Odric or high-cost tutors like Rune-Scarred are absolutely fine. But in a format with Affinity, Burn, Zoo, Ad Nauseam, Scapeshift, Death's Shadow, Devoted Druid combo or Urza's Tower big mana, they are just going to ignore what you do and go for the kill before you assemble your massive board. Cards like Odric, Lunarch Marshal in particular are considered 'bad' in Modern as they are what competitive players would describe as 'win-more' cards. If you get a Brisela, Voice of Nightmare and/or a couple of other stuff onto the battlefield, shouldn't you already have won the game at that point? And if you don't have anything of that caliber on the battlefield, isn't he just a 3/3 for 4 mana that dies to Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt? Wouldn't it better to have more ways to cheat out your big creatures faster and gain the advantage than ways to turn an already big advantage into a bigger advantage? See, cards like Wall of Omens pay the off the second they hit the battlefield, no matter what. If your opponent wastes a removal spell on it, you already gained a big advantage, you can stonewall their Goblin Guide for days if they don't. Heartless Summoning sets up an early advantage, and nobody just happens to run a couple of Disenchant in their main deck to deal with it, so your opponent has much more difficulty to interact with it than with Lili.
I totally understand that you are somewhat skeptical about my opinion/advice on this matter, I'm just a random guy on tappedout and who knows I could be a noob, there are a lot of people on here that pretend to know more than they actually do. But if you want to make sure you get a bang for your buck, just try running your deck the way it is on XMage (URL is xmage.de, it is a free Magic client) against some human opponents. Take your time to learn the program, maybe with some youtube tutorials, and play the deck for 10-20 matches online before you spend your real money. See what kind of conclusions you will come to on your own before making the purchase, you'd might learn a lot more about the format, your deck and your cards in just 10 matches than you'd initially expect.

I unfortunately don't have the Devoted Druids to make that version of Abzan Company (hence the 'old version' label). However I'll start the tally with 1 vote each for Burn and Storm!
