Fiend Binder Discussion

griffstick on Tajic, hits with three

Well you currently have 2 Mausoleum Guard'S and 2 Raise the Alarm'S in the deck.

Fiend Binder you can take out.

Prophetic Prism you can take out

And Haazda Exonerator. These all seem like an easy cut.

I agree with the earlier comments; so rather than be redundant, here are the cards I think you should cut first when making upgrades (in no particular order)

Dearly Departed (You have no reliable way to get it into the graveyard), Fiend Binder, Elder Cathar, Midnight Guard, Cathars' Crusade (a bomb in EDH, not Modern)..

And finally, Loxodon Warhammer is strictly better than Butcher's Cleaver.. Basilisk Collar & Brave the Sands might be worth considering too..

With your limited card pool, I would suggest sticking to mono white weenies. This means cutting your big creatures (I would say anything over 4 cmc), and just sticking with the small creatures that are low to the ground. This strategy utilizes a "go wide" approach where you simply spit out too many creatures for your opponent to block. Things with flying are also very good with this strategy as once your opponent has creatures, they still might have difficulty blocking the ones with flying. The artifacts can also go. Artifacts generally cost a lot of tempo to both play and then equip. It is usually better to just play another creature. I would also consider adding the following cards from your collection: Bygone Bishop, Fiend Hunter, Bonds of Faith (acts as a pump if you need it, or pseudo-removal if you need it), Doomed Traveler, Steadfast Guard, Inspiring Captain, Steadfast Cathar, Kor Scythemaster, Kor Castigator, Mardu Hordechief, Fiend Binder, Elder Cathar, Dauntless Cathar, Cliffside Lookout, Nearheath Chaplain, Courageous Outrider, Sanctifier of Souls, Retreat to Emeria, Chapel Geist, Kor Bladewhirl. Serra Angel can be a good top end finisher. Most things with flying, produce tokens, and/or pump all creatures are good additions to a weenie deck.

I would up your lands count to 22, and I would try to have about seven 1-drops, about fifteen 2-drops, about twelve 3 drops, about five 4/5-drops. 22 lands will mean that you will hit your third land drop on turn 3 90% of the time when you are on the draw, and 85% of the time on the play. I would aim to have about 28-30 creatures creatures, and about 8-10 instants/sorceries/enchantments. This gets you to exactly 60 cards -- which is important. I could get into a lengthy mathematical explanation into why 60 cards is always the best -- but it essentially boils down to increasing the chances of drawing your best cards when you need them. It increases the consistency of the deck.

I like the look of this list so far! Innistrad block was great for humans, and I think this mono-white take on humans definitely has potential. I have a few suggestions that may be helpful. First, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip would be really strong in such a creature-heavy deck, and he's a human that creates other humans, which is sort of a nice bonus. Repel the Abominable works beautifully with this, giving you either a Fog or a way to wreck your opponent's creatures, depending on the circumstances. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar could be really strong here as well, since his +1 makes him an indestructible Human and his ult boosts your guys. My only other suggestion is Make a Stand, which can save your creatures from a boardwipe or allow you to swing in for a ton of indestructible damage.

I might consider taking out Fiend Binder. While having your opponent's creatures tapped can potentially be convenient, I don't think it's a strong enough card that you need it in your deck. Ideally, this deck should be able to handle your opponent's board no matter how many untapped creatures they have.

I hope this advice was helpful! I wish you good luck in all your future deckbuilding endeavors.

So my comment got deleted, but take out stuff like Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and Grand Abolisher for things like Fiend Binder and Oblivion Ring. You can perma exile with them and a blink card. Msg me on tapped out for details if you don't know how.

Thraben Inspector is a must have as far as humans go as the best 1 drop in standard atm allowing later card draw if the game draws out. Fiend Binder and Faithbearer Paladin feel a little slow and weak for their CMC. You might consider swapping them out for some control elements such as Declaration in Stone, Clip Wings or Stasis Snare

BioProfDude on Mono White Lives Matter!!!

In a mono color deck, there is absolutely zero need for Evolving Wilds. Just replace those with Plains. If you replace them with a Plains, every time you would have drawn Evolving Wilds you would instead draw a Plains.

I would try to make room for 4x Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip. That card is highly undervalued. You get a 2/2 for mana symbol 1mana symbol w, and it flips to be power/toughness equal to the number of creatures you have (including itself), and it generates a 1/1 human token each turn (which can trigger Thalia's Lieutenant). Maybe replace 1x Archangel Avacyn  Flip, 1x or 2x Collective Effort, and 2x Fiend Binder (a good card, but expensive converted mana cost compared to Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip).

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Soon as Sanctifier of Souls is available on here it will be replacing Fiend Binder possibly if the play testing with it goes well if not the fiend stays put.
