Rugged Highlands instead of Gruul Guildgate, because gaining 1 life is better than not gaining 1 life.

I'd take out the vivids here for basics. I find that it is best to use no more than 10ish ETB tapped lands in any given deck if it is possible and you have 15. Other lands to pull for basics or something better would be Gruul Guildgate, and any of the life-gain lands. Putting in basics will enable your SOI hand lands and your tango land and keep the deck going fast.

Otherwise, this deck is looking to be back on the rise in our play group.

Cards that you should take out: Infectious Bloodlust (unless you add 2 more) Flamespeaker's Will, Ancient Grudge is waayy better, Great Furnace They are not modern! lol, Whims of the Fates its just not good, Gruul Guildgate, Nyxborn Rollicker a 1/1 for is not good in modern. Cards to Add: Burning-Tree Shaman its good as a 3/4 for 3 and can only get better, Temple of Abandon, Cinder Glade while these are not needed they will be nice. Sorry that this is kinda short, this is my second time writing this and I got a bit impatient.....

+1 Awesome idea, but is going to need A LOT of work if you want to make it anything other than casual.Firstly your Mana base, quite simply it is too random/sporadic to produce consistent, good land that your deck needs. I would reccomend removing:

Ancient Amphitheater - You only have two giants, and the probability of having both in your opening hand is ~0.175

Azorius Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Selesnya Guildgate, Gruul Guildgate, Izzet Guildgate - Basically all of your Guildgates. They are simply worse versions of lands you could be running, eg shock lands like Hallowed Fountain

Terramorphic Expanse - Again should be replaced with Fetch Lands, such as Scalding Tarn

Transguild Promenade - Takes land to use, so slows your deck down by an extra turn - ie it sucks

What I would say is: for a relatively budget deck running the Tri-lands are a good idea, also the Prairie Stream and other similar lands are pretty good for your deck. The best list of lands to use I have found is: running Taplands is a really good idea, as they are fairly cheap and go well with basic lands etc.

In terms of the spells the deck seems really cool, especially the line up of cantrips which act as control for your opponent. In terms of creatures I would add a play set of Ink-Treader Nephilim and Zada, Hedron Grinder (or maybe three as it's legendary).

Also having cards with the heroic effect such as Akroan Crusader will help create more creatures to draw, and also generally be good for the deck. Other than that I think play-testing, and stream-lining are the best way for this deck to move forwards.Good luck I would love to see this deck progress!

if I where u id take out Rakdos Guildgate for you have no use of the swamp and add 2 Shivan Oasis or 2 Gruul Guildgate and in your side board add 2Gravity Well to help defend against flyers for if you went against my

angel can be modern

Legacy* TazEragon


you could block nothing. I would also take out a few creatures and add a few more land most decks have between 20-22 land. for me id take out the goblins and Rakdos Guildgate and add 4 Gruul Guildgate and 3 Shivan Oasis but that's what I would do. so do what you think is best of your game style

Peace of Mind seems like a worse Words of Worship, Wolfkin Bond is easy to splash but if you can manage double green by adding more dual lands, Raised by Wolves is a little bit better.

Your whole deck has no... synergy, but for example your creatures are highly aggressive, but you also have counterspells. You have landfall creatures but no leaks searchers. I'm going to strongly suggest you make a deck, the majority of this is Naya token/landfall aggro.

I'm going to suggest a heavy dose of bounce lands, 1 of, maybe 2 of each Boros Garrison, Selesnya Sanctuary, Gruul Turf. Courser of Kruphix is a wonderful card, it kills in casual. A good way to get the mana you need AND to hit landfall is Gatecreeper Vine with Selesnya Guildgate, Gruul Guildgate, and Boros Guildgate, gives a nice blocker too. A great finisher is Avenger of Zendikar or if you prefer a smaller creature Rampaging Baloths. Sporemound, Dictate of Heliod, Hellrider, and Archetype of Courage are also amazing in these decks. Assemble the Legion and/or Brimaz, King of Oreskos is ridiculous for tokens. Also Raise the Alarm is similar to Dragon Fodder but at instant speed.

Hope this helped!

I know this is a budget build, but if it wasn't, I would do Stomping Ground over Rugged Highlands and Kessig Wolf Run over Gruul Guildgate, just cause it would make it faster and more powerful.
