Gallows at Willow Hill Discussion

Gallows at Willow Hill is a nice hidden gem for Human Tribal. Thraben Doomsayer can generate more tokens so it's easier to pull off, and adds to the go wide strategy.

My deck goes on a semi different route than yours but if you'd like more ideas, have a look. Any other suggestions I would have would probably come from it anyway. Sigarda, Human's Grace - Hatebears Edition

Ok, I'm pretty happy with where this has ended up now. I purchased a couple of more expensive cards to add more utility in Aura Shards and Mirari's Wake . Also I have added in ramp package as I now have a few more expensive creatures. Finally I played around with the creature base a little by adding in Odric, Master Tactician in place of Baird, Steward of Argive , replacing Thraben Heretic with potentially more powerful Containment Priest , swapping Banisher Priest for Fiend Hunter as this opens up the possibility of permanently removing a creature with Gallows at Willow Hill and finally, removing Devout Chaplain in favour of Avacyn, Angel of Hope as I now have Aura Shards to fill that role.

I would like to find a way to fit Banisher Priest back in so I have both Oblivion Ring style creatures but have no idea what to remove to do so. My three drops seem pretty solid. After that I think it's just the mana base I need to look at as I have a few triple white cards to worry about and would like to add some utility in at this slot.

First off I’d say swap Adamant Will for Boros Charm, Disenchant for Wear / Tear, and Shattering Blow for Return to Dust

Gird for Battle seems weak,

Heroic Reinforcements doesn’t do much,

Gallows at Willow Hill should be an Oblation or Chaos Warp because Gallows is too slow

Maybe cut a land because your curve isn’t that high?

Haazda Marshal also seems weak

Truefire Captain and Boros Reckoner seem like nonbos with Tajic, but I understand why you’re running them

Looks like a sweet human tribal deck!

However, there are a few things that I feel don't really fit. Konda, Lord of Eiganjo feels like too much mana for very little impact. At 7 mana, I feel you want to be something game changing, not playing a decent blocker than can chip away at your opponents' life totals. Likewise, Angelic Overseer is a strong and resilient threat, but I'm not sure it does enough for its cost.

There are some really strong cards for human decks that I think you should consider. I see Angel of Glory's Rise in your maybeboard, but I feel there's not reason it shouldn't be included. It's such a powerful card, recurring all your humans and potentially being a huge blowout against zombie tribal. Gallows at Willow Hill is a great piece of repeatable creature removal that merely requires a 3 mana investment and tapping some humans.

I also feel like your deck is fairly light on ramp. There are some great mana dorks out there that are also humans. Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways generate tons of mana, for use only on creatures, while Avacyn's Pilgrim and Steward of Valeron are cheaper dorks.

Nissa, Worldwaker seems bad here. She only untaps forests and her other abilities risk getting blown out. Given how high your curve is maybe drop her? Card draw is also another annoying thing is G/W EDH, you can use Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Also, human tribal, makes sense to use Gallows at Willow Hill

Interesting deck idea. I didn't consider using Queen Marchesa for just the deathtouch and haste. I do like the Human theme. I've looked over your list and I have some ideas that might help.

First thing that kinda stands out to me is the mana base. Seems a little thin. I think you should bump it up to somewhere between 35 to 38 lands. I think 36 or 37 might be better.
These are the cards I would cut to make room for more lands.
Gallows at Willow Hill, doesn't seem efficient to tap 4 cards to destroy one target. That's 3 less attackers or blockers.
Divine Verdict, Ride Down, and Smite the Monstrous are conditional spot removal. There are better options for spot removal and trading a 1-for-1 card in hand for creature on the battlefield isn't that great in multi-player.
Dropping those would let you add 4 more lands. Now with more land drops, let's look at some of the other weaker cards.

Bituminous Blast is nice spot removal and the cascade can be nice but there could be times where the cascade just gives you something that doesn't help that much. Might be better to have something more consistent.
Disentomb is another 1-for-1 trade where you get 1 card out of the graveyard for 1 card from your hand.
Diabolic Tutor is another 1-for-1 trade where you get 1 card out of the deck for 1 card from your hand.
Death Grasp is an OK card when you only have one opponent. Not good for multi-player games.

Consider the following replacements:
Death Denied instead of Disentomb. Instant speed instead of a socery, X creatures instead of just 1.
Increasing Ambition instead of Diabolic Tutor. One more mana but the flashback makes it worth it.
Exsanguinate instead of Death Grasp so that you hit everyone at the same time instead of only one person.
Additionally, what about adding a Basilisk Collar or Gorgon Flail to the deck. That would allow your Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile to wipe the board of creatures attacking you.

Toxic Deluge is a tough call. I like it in 60 card decks like Legacy or Modern. Not sure about this deck.
Faith Unbroken, I'm undecided on this one. I see why it's in the deck. But wouldn't a Banisher Priest or Fiend Hunter be a better choice for the exile effect?

As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget. Feel free to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think.

On the humans theme, possible playablesInclude Gallows at Willow Hill, Hanweir Garrison, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Westvale Abbey  Flip, Westvale Cult Leader  Flip. I'm not sure these are worthwhile, but it looks like you have a lot of buffs that would benefit token?

Merieke is cool, but without a way to blink or untap her, will you get mileage out of her?
