Icbrgr on sideboard for bw tribal (modern)

I would say because you have an aggressive game plan i would put in cards in your sideboard that focus on evasion/attacking and preventing removal over shutting down an opponents deck/plan... Emerge Unscathed is pretty great in all of these categories.... Ensnaring Bridge is something that can stop you from attacking/slow you down so artifact removal of any kind its worth considering....Glaring Spotlight is also great for getting some of your own removal to work on thing like Geist of Saint Traft and or just enable easy damage to end the game.

Gotta love cat tribal!

How are you on pump spells? If you feel like you need a little more power to close out games, Alpha Status and Stoneforge Masterwork are some of my favorites.

If you find that you are having difficulty connecting your damage, I really like Primal Rage and Glaring Spotlight in agressive combat strategies.

Likewise, if you have people in your play group that run a lot of sweepers, you can run Creeping Renaissance, Faith's Reward, or even Wrap in Vigor to prevent/bounce back from your creatures dying. Of course, you could also use Teferi's Protection if you have the budget for it :)

Looks like a really fun deck! I don't know if you are looking to add any new cards but two of my favorite tribal support finishers are Alpha Status and Shared Animosity which might be useful in this deck too :)

How are doing getting your creatures through to your opponent's life? If you feel like you need a little extra to get through, you could also consider adding some mass evasion/reach cards like Primal Rage, Glaring Spotlight, Overwhelming Stampede, Overrun, or even Seismic Stomp and Gruul Charm.

Came by this deck while looking for budget ideas for my own Gwyn deck.

I'd say, leave the deck be if it's already doing alright in your meta and you're having fun with it. There are some things that stand out to me though:

You don't have boardwipes in your deck. These will help a lot in surviving the first 7 turns of the game, something you say you have issues with. Mythos of Snapdax, Divine Reckoning and Single Combat are my suggestions. At the bare minimum, get four boardwipes. You can cut some of your creatures for these. Don't forget about single target removal either, I put some in the suggestions below.

Looking at your mana curve: it's quite low, which is a good thing. This means you can cut down on some of the basic lands and go from 40 to something like 36/37. If you can, replace them with more signets or talismans, but cards like Boros Cluestone, Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are fine too. Try to go for eight mana sources which are not lands.

When selecting creatures to cut to make room for other cards, decide which cards will have an impact when you play them and which won't. As you play the deck, you'll learn more about cards which work and which don't (that's the fun of deckbuilding). I suspect Rimrock Knight won't have much of an impact (You'd rather have another equipment instead), Crashing Drawbridge can be replaced with an equipment which gives haste. In my own Gwyn deck I got rid of Bloodcrazed Paladin because I held on to it instead of playing it. Ardenvale Tactician doesn't look like it'll do much either. I think you'll be fine with somewhere around 25 creatures to make room for more equipment and removal.

You can ditch a card like Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage as well, you can replace the +1 ability with equipment. Don't play the planeswalker for the ult, as your opponents have four whole turn cycles to find an answer for it.

I've listed some more (budget) suggestions below, you'll figure it out: Evolving Wilds

Terramorphic Expanse

Buried Ruin

Mortuary Mire

Chariot of Victory

Murder

Thalia's Lancers

Mortify

Unlicensed Disintegration

Inquisitor's Flail (use only with first strike/double strike or when you have a way to make your creature indestructible)

Despark

Knights of the Black Rose

Glaring Spotlight (I think it might be a good card as a finisher, but haven't won a game with it yet)

Fireshrieker

Knights' Charge

Sign in Blood

Make them sac it! That indestructible hexproof unblockable 20/20 got you down? Good thing I have a Plaguecrafter or Diabolic Edict here to make them sad! You can even flash some of it in with Alchemist's Refuge, Winding Canyons, or a whole bunch of artifacts, enchantments, and creatures that let you do it nowadays so they learn their lesson not to swing at you.

There are also a good number of artifacts and lands nowadays that can get rid of that pesky hexproof. Detection Tower, Arcane Lighthouse, and Glaring Spotlight are your friends. And the lands don't even cost you a 'real' card slot, and are repeatable...my favorite!

King saproling! Thanks so much for the upvote and suggestions! lets start on the positives, Strata Scythe , Not of This World , Aphotic Wisps , Expedition Map , Eternal Thirst , Blade of the Bloodchief , and Sadistic Glee are all amazing! ill put them into my maybeboard for consideration! they all fit the theme of the deck super well, but the deck is kind of tightly packed as it is, so itll be hard to incorporate them. the other cards are alright in some cases, but the Glaring Spotlight i already have enough anti hexproof with the two lands and shadowspear, Hatred isnt honorable! it one shots my opponent, but then i paid a whole lot of life and i only kill 1 person, so eh. Necrologia for the same reason of paying a lot of life, and then Tsabo's Decree , Wail of the Nim and Manascape Refractor all feel a little underwhelming, but thanks for the suggestions! have a good one!

Shiki No Uta is a jam!! Check out the song "Books of War" by Omegah Red/MF Doom when you have a chance, I think you'll like it.

And nice deck, great choice of basic lands haha. These might interest you: Glaring Spotlight, Strata Scythe, Hatred, Necrologia, Tsabo's Decree, Not of This World, Aphotic Wisps, Wail of the Nim, Manascape Refractor, Expedition Map, Eternal Thirst, Blade of the Bloodchief, Sadistic Glee
