Gather the Townsfolk Discussion

Always got a +1 for tokens! I made a couple of these myself, I would recommend Gather the Townsfolk instead of Timely Reinforcements. Also, Hero of Bladehold could probably replace Hour of Reckoning. Other suggestions could be Zealous Persecution (Maybe in place of tragic slip?) And if you want, Monastery Mentor and/or Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip.

As someone who played heroic in standard and loved it I have tried time and time again to make it work but I have not been able to make it happen. I found that it is just worst bogles and it makes me pretty sad. I would recommend a more go wide strategy that utilizes phalanx leader for modern heroic and avoiding enchantments as modern removal is incredibly strong and you will likely just find yourself getting 2 for 1'd. I really like Spectral Procession and Gather the Townsfolk for token generation and phalanx leader to pump them all as well as Intangible Virtue. That is just my personal opinion for budget heroic in modern. I think that 1 mana protection spells to keep your phalanx leader alive are also very strong, Ajani's Presence and Gods Willing come to mind but I am sure their others. that is my best idea to make a cheap competitive deck utilizing the heroic mechanic. Monastery Mentor is also a lot of fun in decks like that but I believe he is a few dollars a copy so it would raise the price of the deck. A normal sort of token shell and soul sisters with phalanx leader puts you in the position to run token synergy or human synergy if you like. Lots of possibilities and it really allows Phalanx Leader to shine. Been looking for a way to use my full art play set!

I like this deck a lot, I made a G/W humans deck my self. How does the deck go before sideboard with no removal? i would recommend Gather the Townsfolk over Servo Exhibition.

I like this deck a lot. One little tweak is a card called Gather the Townsfolk could do this deck good.

@LeaPlath Interesting. Though I have my eyes set on a few cards that do not meet with that decks style. Here is what I am playsetting: Thalia's Lieutenant, Tireless Tracker, Knight of the Reliquary, Monastery Swiftspear, Boros Charm, and Gather the Townsfolk.

And naturally I'd switch Raise the Alarm to Gather the Townsfolk if you do include the Champion of the Parish.
