Falkenrath Aristocrat Discussion

You're not running Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Falkenrath Aristocrat or ... Talisman of Indulgence. You probably also want a By Force.... maybe a Vindicate.

Not sure if you're experienced in EDH, but Aggro decks usually have the hardest time. They do very well in the beginning; however, they die out late game due to stax and control deck, plus other opponents targeting you because you're chomping away at life so quickly. That's why I leaned more towards some power creatures in the deck. EDH requires a nice curve and all deck play them, including aggro decks. For quick beefy creatures Falkenrath Aristocrat and Mirri the Cursed are my two personal favorite aggro vamps. Cheap cmc and threatening.

Hope your deck does well!

MizzMizz, glad you were finally able to upload your deck! Looks pretty good! Here are some cards you may not have considered yet!?

Tribal synergies

Patriarch's Bidding (helps against a lot of board wipes, Athreos, God of Passage and is also very good for that)

Baron Sengir

Vanquisher's Banner

Feast of Blood

Coat of Arms

Cavern of Souls

Having a sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Ashnod's Altar or Falkenrath Aristocrat can be great with other Blood Artist effects if you wanted to also add Falkenrath Noble and Zulaport Cutthroat as well. Its also very good with cards like Insurrection.

You should check out any of the new cards from Ixalan too and keep an eye out for Rivals for more vampires. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Sanctum Seeker, and Legion's Landing  Flip are all great new additions

Dismember doesn't belong in black. It's basically a removal spell meant to be played in everything else ironically enough. If you're going black-red, you have access to a TON of better removal than what you have here. Fatal Push is among the best cards in Modern, as is Lightning Bolt, as is Terminate. I assume your budget is too low for Liliana 3 mana variants or Kolaghan's Command or Collective Brutality? Well, even without Liliana you can create a pretty cheap engine with Falkenrath Gorger, Stromkirk Condemned, Asylum Visitor, Bloodghast, Stromkirk Captain and Smuggler's Copter. You'd be so much quicker and more effective if you just ran these guys, and the only money card in there is 'ghast. Maybe toss in like Vampire Nocturnus, Captivating Vampire or Sanctum Seeker if you want more lords, or Heir of Falkenrath if you want extra beaters. Olivia, Mobilized for War could go in the deck too. There's an older engine that used Viscera Seer, Bloodghast, Kalastria Highborn and/or Blood Artist if you wanna try the Aristocrats route. Aside from Nocturnus, that engine now has Falkenrath Aristocrat and Voldaren Pariah  Flip to play with.

with the addition of Kitesail Freebooter will you be replacing Tidehollow Sculler ?

the upside of kitesail : easier to cast as it only requires / is a human so it can give Falkenrath Aristocrat a counter if need be. / has evasion with flying

the downsides: doesnt hit creatures / cant pull off the instant speed sac ability to exile a card on etb/ltb trigger / 1 less power

maybe just a bad Sin Collector. would love to hear your thoughts

Allepoca on Budget Modern: Mardu Tokens

Hi IlGuale thanks for the upvote and the comment I really appreciate that you took the time to comment on my deck. I feel that Start to Finish is a very powerful card and I will most likely run it as a 2 of cutting two Gather the Townsfolk. On the subject of why the deck is currently in red I added it to add Butcher of the Horde because I feel it is a very good finisher especially when we are falling behind to a deck like burn or zoo because the lifelink we can give it is very beneficial alongside being a very hard to deal with threat due to it not dying to Lightning Bolt and Abrupt Decay alongside an un revolted Fatal Push. Also I feel that the current 4 Drops that I am running Butcher of the Horde and Hero of Bladehold fit very well in the deck because they provide very good synergy with the token plan and are very good in a heavily aggressive shell thus I wouldn't want to cut either of them in order to run Falkenrath Aristocrat because it dies to almost any kind of removal and then I'm forced to sacrifice creatures in order to save it more often than not and while the fact that it synergizes well with all our human tokens I find that having a large beater which grows is a little less beneficial than having a smaller beater that helps us stabilize with lifegain. Finally on the note of Young Pyromancer I would definitely run it in a non budget build of this deck having both a four of for Young Pyromancer and Monastary Mentor as our main token generators but without being able to run Monastary Mentor I feel that going all in on the cast spells for value plan would be too slow to out race many other midrange decks so I decided to run Hanweir Garrison due to the fact that it is a lot more aggressive than young pyromancer due to producing twice the amount of tokens without using a spell and also having those tokens gain virtual haste would help make the deck more aggressive. Also I feel that having Hanweir Garrison in the three drop spot helps to balance out the curve so we can make the most of our mana each turn. Also I feel that it's worth mentioning that turn 3 Garrison into turn 4 Sorin, Solemn Visitor and using his +1 allows us to swing for 7 lifelinking damage which sounds like a pretty sweet synergy.

Thank you for taking the time to look at the deck and I will 100 percent add Start to Finish to the deck because having the ability to have one of our token generators double as a removal spell sounds amazing.

Hi there! I like your work because i am a budget player too and W/B tokens is one of my "wanna-buy" decks, so +1.

That said, i have to ask you why do you want to play Mardu instead of Orzhov. Is it for Butcher?

Also, i have some suggestions i hope you will appreciate:

1- Falkenrath Aristocrat is a payoff in your colours which has "natural" Haste, requires sacrifices only to survive removal and grows if you feed her with human tokens.

2- Young Pyromancer would be better with more than nineteen instants and sorceries, but it's worth noting that he is cheaper than Hanweir Garrison and generates tokens without exposing himself to chumpblock.

3- I found out that Start / Finish is a solid 2x in this kind of lists thanks to its solid Aftermath side.

A couple of suggestions with the goals you have in mind. Granted, they all aren't immediately obtainable.

Immediate vampires, however there are many other cards which create tokens to feed your self sacrificing strats,

eg. Zulaport Cutthroat
