Dust Elemental Discussion

This list is very interesting! There are a lot of cards here that I've never seen before. Do you own these cards or is this a list of things you are planning on using?

I think it's kind of fragile; especially given the amount of artifact hate in modern. Some one-mana discard would really help to make sure the opponent doesn't Lightning Bolt your Tocatli Honor Guard in response to your Dust Elemental and return your board to your hand. I'd be really afraid of that kind of blowout.
What about Ghastly Conscription as a backup? When you put them into play face-down, their ETB abilities don't trigger, and you can turn them face up for their mana cost.
I know it's off color, but tell me your opinion on Dubious Challenge. Due to its wording, the opponent's creature enters the battlefield first. So, if you reveal Hushwing Gryff and Leveler, they'll get the Gryff and you get a free 10/10; or they'll get a 10/10 that exiles their library and you get a free win.

Dust Elemental could be a super-Whitemane Lion here - with good evasion and a big body. I'd also consider adding Suture Priest for more of the same good thing, and Spectral Procession for all the ETB triggers.
Check out my Dusty Sisters, they are pretty similar.

I love this idea. +1. That said, I have a few suggestions:
Also, I think Dust Elemental could be a good backup creature to manifest. Plus, you can even cast it normally to bounce manifested cards you want in your hand.

Your deck is a beatdown deck that rely on big creatures to deliver massive damage.Sadly, white is a slow color in magic. So, maybe Quicksilver Amulet can help you cast big and expensive creatures.Another alternative would be big creatures with low costing, such as: Dust Elemental, Hunted Lammasu, and that Serra Ascendant.I think Odric, Lunarch Marshal is better than Angelic Skirmisher, Linvala, Keeper of Silence is better than Angel of Jubilation.Selfless Spirit can protect your other creatures from mass destruction spell.Adarkar Valkyrie would combo with Burnished Hart or Selfless Spirit, and she herself is flying, vigilance.Serra Avenger is a 3/3 flying, vigilance for 2 mana.

It's definitely a very good start. Cards to keep an eye out for:
Spirit of the Labyrinth. This is a must-have for hatebears decks. Halting your opponents from card advantaging you out is insane.
Aura of Silence: Again, tax your opponents. Also has an incredible rider on it.
Lodestone Golem: Big beater? Check. Taxes your opponent? Check.
Leonin Arbiter: Tax your opponents, yet again.
Ethersworn Canonist: Like above, except also beats for 2. A great inclusion.
Samurai of the Pale Curtain: While not as amazing as he used to be, still a beater that hurts graveyard based decks.
Nezumi Graverobber: Okay, stealing creatures from yards, stripping them bare AND beating down? This guy just isn't fair. Also, Faerie Macabre does well, especially if you have to get something out of a yard.
Voidstone Gargoyle: At 5 mana, less important, but he can lock your opponents out of their commander. Or a board wipe. Or really anything.
Acidic Slime: Cheap, good, repeatable, also just generally good. Did I mention that he was good?
Eternal Witness: Semi-expensive rn, but if you have to get something back, accept NO substitutes.
Qasali Pridemage: Me-ow.
Phyrexian Revoker: Legacy staple, also beats for 2.
Dust Elemental: Save 3 dudes, get a beater. All-in-all, a win-win.
Hushwing Gryff: While it does turn off many cards, it also turns off your opponents. Use at your own risk.
Stonecloaker: Just do it.
Oblation: Just do it.
Soul Sculptor: 'Tis but a silly card, and one that really hurts some decks. Very, very badly.
Arena of the Ancients: Opponents relying on legendary creatures? Well fear not, because this turns them all off!
Most of these cards are sub-$2, but they may be somewhat hard to find. Keep an eye out, and your deck will quickly become terrifying.
Also, maybe 5-6 more lands?

A little expensive, but would be great:
- Sigarda's Aid
- Golem-Skin Gauntlets (cheap to equip and buffs a bunch)
- Sword of the Animist and Explorer's Scope (both work as ramp)
- Angel of Invention (anthem + tokens)
- Obelisk of Urd
- Windbrisk Heights
- Forsake the Worldly (given the amount of enchantment/artifact trouble we can get into)
Kemba wants low equip costs:
- Stormrider Rig
Grafted WargearAll equip for free.
Dragon Throne of Tarkir buffs your army for you.
- Sigil of Valor buffs Kemba via her army.
- Haunted Cloak
- Empyrial Plate
- Chariot of Victory
- Dust Elemental (Saves things - it can return itself and 2 other creatures)
- Goldnight Commander or Valor in Akros
- Gideon, Martial Paragon (for the ultimate) ->
- Gideon's Resolve works as a tutor and Anthem

If you're open to suggestions, a card I found and actually LOVE is Dust Elemental Idk why NO selesnya decks play this card over Fleetfoot Panther another good card is Regal Behemoth I know you have it in here, but in my play testing it has been overwhelmingly more effective than say Zendikar Resurgent Another great card I've found usefull is called Cream of the Crop Its helps tremendously filtering your deck, another usefull card against any kind of black deck is Reclamation And I cannot stress enough how powerful Rogue's Passage is, in my deck I run Blightsteel Colossus and that land basically wins me the game. I was actually looking at putting Sandwurm Convergence in a slot within the 99, Since karametra gets so much mana so quickly it seems like it would be good.
