MindAblaze, absolutely! Do you already have a gameplan in mind, or would you like suggestions for a deck direction from me?

Because either way, I'm assuming that the idea is to flip Kytheon as soon as possible (turn 3-4) and then spam board wipes after activating his 0 or +1 to protect him or other creatures.

If that's the case, you want two other creatures by turn 3-4 to attack with so that he flips. Those creatures will probably die (this is commander, after all), but a worthy sacrifice to get a flipped Kytheon, I think. Activate his +2, and I think 5 loyalty is a good place to be for turn 3-4.

Those two creatures can be two tokens made via a 2-3 drop (4+ drops are too slow!), and I have put them here for your convenience:

Fourteen is what we need, and fourteen is what we can get.

I think this is a decent start, but this deck definitely needs Path to Exile. The inability to interact with your opponent's gameplans is a definite weakness. I would also advise against Elite Vanguard - a vanilla 2/1 is not where you want to be. Fill out your playset of maindeck Thraben Inspectors instead - it gives you resilience. I'd also advise you try and sneak in a couple of Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip in here, as it has significant upside.

Brave the Elements used defensively covers what Make a Stand does in most situations, so I'd advise that you cut it. Gather the Townsfolk is a card that I advise you consider, as it has great synergy with Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant (not so much with Thalia herself, but that's why you can have it in the sideboard and bust it out when Thalia herself isn't helpful). Relic of Progenitus is mostly a better Tormod's Crypt for you, and Sundering Growth is mostly a better Disenchant.

I would think about switching out the Gather the Townsfolk for 4 Raise the Alarm. It doesn't have fateful hour, but the instant speed makes it much more competitive and versatile. IDK though because then it won't trigger Thalia's Lieutenant or Champion of the Parish

Growing Ranks is not a card you should be looking to play in modern. the earliest it does anything is turn five, and it barely helps you. same with Parallel Lives.

you should really be looking to go wide with a token deck. large tokens are very vulnerable to spot removal. Call of the Conclave might as well be a Kalonian Tusker for all your opponent cares. the only real difference is that tusker doesnt die outright to bounce effects like Vapor Snag or Cryptic Command. yes you can populate the token, but unfortunately Wake the Reflections is sorcery speed, so you can't even use it as psuedo-protection. xyr0s, 8 anthems is fine for a deck that uses them as a win condition. you should look up a few competitive token decks. they almost all run x4 Intangible Virtue, at least 2x Honor of the Pure (some run 4) and then depending on the deck's colors, they'll run Signal Pests, Accorder Paladins, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Zealous Persecution, and the list goes on. it's how the deck wins.

that said, you should be going wider, and running more anthems. you can easily make room by dropping Fists of Ironwood, and Wake the Reflections. Advent of the Wurm should not be a 4 of, but i can see that being an interesting threat in some situations. maybe lower it to 2? for tokens, Raise the Alarm is your friend. you could also consider Gather the Townsfolk and Spectral Procession. Midnight Haunting is decent too. for anthems Honor of the Pure is ideal, but to keep the price down, maybe try Signal Pest. if the budget allows, a single Secure the Wastes makes for an excellent late game mana sink to close out a game. they're touchy, though, in early hands; so i wouldnt run more than one.

hope thats helpful to you.

I'd go with Raise the Alarm over Gather the Townsfolk. Being able to cast it at instant speed can come in handy at times.
