I like it! I've always been a fan of the Theros Auras.

I'm curious why you aren't running 4 of Hero of Iroas. It seems the cost deduction would be really useful to you as a whole.

The inclusion of Gods Willing is really good.

No planeswalkers because Unlicensed Disintegration makes them feel bad. Though Gideon is good anyway. And maybe Nissa is anyway too.

I finally picked up this deck, and added a bit of flair:

Flying Humans for the Win!

Standard jubale


It's extremely aggressive, doesn't care much about blocking or removal, and is ready to lifelink the win. Haven't seen a deck like this since heroic with Hopeful Eidolon enchanted a Hero of Iroas and Gods Willing protected it and brought home the lifelinking evasive damage. This is FUN!

Silence deals with counterspells. You play when you want to combo - like, when you have a puresteel paladin in your hand, some cheap equipment, and a silence. Silence goes first, if that is not countered, you have peace and quiet for the rest of the turn. However, Silence does nothing against removal - if you cast it after the removal is cast, it's still on the stack, and when you cast silence, your opponent gets to respond with instant-speed spells anyway.

Gods Willing should be protection enough from spot removal, like Path to Exile and Fatal Push. But you could add a couple of Apostle's Blessing, if you're really, badly afraid of removal.

Scrying is quite useful so that is understandable, and on that note I do believe that Gods Willing is a better card in this situation especially when compared to Apostle's Blessing since you get to save one mana(or two life) as well as the bonus scry trigger so that is a good call.

Nice, +1.

I'm a bit of a noob and have finished night shift, but 3 things: 1) is that Goblin really worth the $ to you (it also breaks Tribal Purity which is bugging me)?; 2) will your peeps get sufficiently pumped by the Lieutenant (I realize pumping your dudes may not be one of your tactics, but in one of my decks my creatures stayed too small and another Aggro deck smashed them); 3) any room/need for protection (Gods Willing perhaps)?

just saw your declist pop up somewhere and I do like what I see! Seems like it's really nice to play. Perhaps I might have a few interesting ideas for you:

Have fun with this build and an upvote from me. If you like to see my favorite deck, then click here.

I do in fact need more removal. My issue is finding good spots within the deck to fit removal. I see where you're coming from. Unfortunately, going for a more budget build, Monastery Mentor was dropped, even though he was in the original build. Spectral Procession is dropped due to triple white devotion. Technically I could pay 2 instead of a white, but at raises the initial CMC anyway, Gather the Townsfolk beats it through all standards of mine. It also allows me to run of of 2 lands (which has happened) without a severe consequence. I don't want to splash another color for several reasons. First being budget and landbase, next being room in the deck. One of the only decks I've made where I believe I have almost perfected the amount of removal as well as what to sideboard would be my deck The Last Revel (budget edition) where I spent hours getting everything pretty close. As for Gods Willing I simply still can't find room in the deck for any protection spells, regardless of their importance. Putting 2 more copies of Sram's Expertise costs me far too much mana. As for your suggestion on damage rather than token gen with my spells, I understand the potential, though most of the worthwhile burn spells are far to expensive. Though I appreciate all of the advice landstalker10

If it where me: I would drop your sorcery list as it currently stands.

Pick up 4 Spectral Procession, keep or re-add 2 Sram's Expertise, 4Gods Willing, 2Monastery Mentor

And honest to god I would splash blue at this point for card draw/control, personal favorite in B/W is Render Silent. But Tamiyo, the Moon Sage would be very valuable as well in a spell/token deck. I would focus on spells for dmg/cc and allow your creatures to spawn the tokens.
