God-Pharaoh's Faithful Discussion

wanderingbard Thank you for your input. Remember that sideboard ir really important on a magic match, If I see a heavy creature deck after game one, I will most likely change 2 negates for 1 essence scatter and dissallow, and add also at leats 3 God-Pharaoh's Faithful. Dynos need the right cards to be able to play them quickly. Also thinking on adding Unsummon to the sideboard.

I think this idea of "high defense" creatures being so "cheap" or having other utilities is the reason why cards like Doran, the Siege Tower and Assault Formation are fairly rare. Making creatures able to assign damage from their toughness can warp the game in unexpected ways. Especially since you can transform creatures like Tree of Perdition and Tree of Redemption into 13/13 creatures for 4 mana, when you pair them with cards that allow you to negate the Defender tag. Or cards like Indomitable Ancients who are a 2/10 creature for 4 mana, Doran turns it into a 10/10 creature in essence. Even things like Yoked Ox and God-Pharaoh's Faithful become insanely strong as they become essentially 4/4 1 drop creatures.

If you're committed to the Consulate Dreadnought being in the deck, then you're going to want an easy way to crew it. Cards like Aerial Modification and Peacewalker Colossus really spice up the Dreadnought in some sneaky ways. If you don't know what to take out to put different cards in, your God-Pharaoh's Faithful is surprisingly meh in a competitive deck.

As you can probably tell, the main focus in this deck is white, or more importantly creature focus. Nyx-Fleece Ram, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, God-Pharaoh's Faithful, and a splash of Green, Treefolk Harbinger. I have given some thought to Disowned Ancestor, but it isn't really strictly better, in the sense that outlast isn't really a powerful ability and we would have to add in more black mana, which seems like a hassle, and wouldn't make the deck any better. If you would like to make this deck, I suggest sticking with white and green as the focus because they have more good toughness cards without defender. (aka a better selection.) Thanks for the suggestion anyway!

The new God-Pharaoh's Faithful is a strict upgrade to Yoked Ox. While it won't trigger often, occasionally gaining 1-2 extra life can be quite useful.
With regard to lands, 22-24 is where I'd want to be with your list. You have many cheap spells, but you really want to hit 3 mana every game, and playing 3 colors is another reason to make sure you have enough mana sources. Also, your enchantments can make use of excess mana.
As for lands you could add, I suggest 1-2 Shambling Vent or Stirring Wildwood. Colorless lands like Ghost Quarter or Gavony Township are great in many decks; here, however, casting Doran is top priority and colorless mana doesn't help with that.

Well, you can remove Fatal Push and use something like Dead Weight as that's the poor man's Fatal Push. Most of what you can remove with Push, Dead Weight can probably hit as well. You can remove Rhonas the Indomitable and Gideon of the Trials pretty easily and replace them with really anything you like that fits the scheme. I used to just run 4 copies of God-Pharaoh's Faithful in their place because you can drop your counters from Channeler Initiate or Exemplar of Strength. You can add Crocodile of the Crossing in as well.

The majority of the cost comes from Concealed Courtyard and Blooming Marsh which can be replaced with Foul Orchard or Forsaken Sanctuary if you want super budget, but they won't be anywhere near as good. Good lands are some of the first things I would recommend buying in a format, especially since these ones won't rotate until the end of 2018. Both of the lands are also used quite frequently in Modern, so they're a two for one.

You could also probably go down a few Solemnity if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend that at all. They're pretty cheap as is.

I recently took my version of this deck to FNM this last weekend. Got just straight up killed. My meta is mostly mono red agro-decks and mardu vehicles. Perhaps if you could stabilize with cards like God-Pharaoh's Faithful or Authority of the Consuls maybe it would work better.
