I would change out Heron's Grace Champion and Banisher Priest as they don't search or seem as critical as some of the others. Mikaeus, the Lunarch is kinda slow I would consider Ulvenwald Tracker as for its cost its kinda mean. You seems to have alot of + power/Toughness effects and without a reliable sacrifice outlet you may not get much use out of Mirror Entity , although Saffi Eriksdotter I think is still a VERY good add with Angel of Glory's Rise or Sun Titan and more so if you add Altar of Dementia for unlimited mill. Don't know how I missed this but Serra Ascendant , its on theme with the angels and is a scary one drop I would replace Hamlet Captain for it.

I do not know your meta but I think a better swap for Spear of Heliod is Lifecrafter's Bestiary as it helps you power through rough games by helping to keep your hand full and filtering your draws.

So, I've spent the last few days tweaking the deck to lover the mana curve a little, add more utility spells and a few board clears that don't totally wreck my own board state. The last few changes I'm considering before sleaving this up and playing are to add in Yisan, the Wanderer Bard in place of Banisher Priest of Hamlet Captain and bringing in Ulvenwald Tracker in place of Avacyn's Pilgrim or Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip.

I like Aether Vial as a card and think it is worth a slot, however, in the latest modern protour if you look at the results the Collected Company variants actually placed overall better than the Vial lists for 5c Humans. I'm not saying you need to run a list similar to that, however, it does make sense. Drawing a CoCo on turn 4 or 5 is amazing, where as a Vial is just plain depressing... something to keep in mind.

One card that I do think you need somewhere in the deck is Dryad Militant. I get that she isn't a human, but she looks like on and she is very anti-control/Snapcaster Mage decks.

I understand the price barrier, but Noble Hierarch would help the aggressive nature of this deck. If you goldfish with her for a while, you should feel the power she holds as that one point of damage every turn adds up quick.

I see it is in your sideboard, so I won't say too much but Tireless Tracker also holds a ton of power. Drawing is a fun thing in magic.

All in all, I'd probably flip out the Gather the Townsfolk for CoCo, Hamlet Captain for Tireless Tracker, take out the Warden of the First Tree for one extra Thali and lastly add in a few copies of Dryad Militant in place of maybe... Mardu Woe-Reaper since that cards seems the weakest fo all the cards in the deck.

I like the build and the idea, but that is just my suggestions for it.

Also, Riders of Gavony is a cute card to consider. Best of luck!

More Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, less Hamlet Captain. That slows down deaths shadow decks quite well, as they run very little land, and many cheap spells. Also, consider either Aether Vial or Collected Company. Both are good at putting your guys into play, without paying fair amounts of mana. Could also consider exchanging Mardu Woe-Reaper for Thraben Inspector - that card draw can be important.

Soldier of the Pantheon seems like a sideboard card - not every day you need that kind of lifegain.

Squirrelbacon I like the suggestions. I may do a little experimenting with the Abzan humans using your recommendations. It seems easy enough to just alter the creature base to accommodate the tribe. Hopefully, they synergize and anthem as well. I like cards like Doomed Traveler and Hamlet Captain. Thanks!

The reason why I wouldn't use Hamlet Captain is because he is only going to get in maybe once before he dies I would rather have more creatures that can deal with cards like Death's Shadow because of their popularity and the fact that they are very good against decks like this. and the reason to only play two Grand Abolisher is because he is not great in every match up so have more than two takes too many slots. I've played a fair share of company decks since the card has came out. He is a solid card just not always the best.

Hello Guys, thanks for your comments and suggestions so far!

hullos Yeah thanks! I had her in mind, i do even own her already, but somehow i forgot about her

moodyman11 Are there good choices for lands, when u do not have any fetchlands (and yes i know i should get some). Chord of Calling is a really good idea. The Champ and will stay in for sure. Well i think i would stay with Avacyns Pilgrim because i do not need much other mana, neither do i own one Noble Hierarch. Why would you only play 2x Grand Abolisher? I think that this is one of the best cards to take advantage of your enemys away. The Auriok Champion is a good suggestion aswell. The Witness will be my choice, i have many of them. Wouldn't the Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip also power up my board? Why would you not play the Hamlet Captain? I think it is pretty powerfull, especially in the early game.

N4kk1 Thanks! You are right, the Path is a must, but why would you take out the Lancers completly? I think one or two would be useful to fetch a Sigarda at the late state of a game.

Keep going guys! :)

What do you think of the Odric, Master Tactician?

Vaan on Knights and Tokens

The current iteration of your deck focus on two different themes, tokens and knight tribal, so trying to find a middle ground is the first step to making this a smoother deck.

With that in mind, i would cut 2 Banishing Stroke, Ivory Mask and Juniper Order Ranger for 4 Selesnya Charm. Sadly, support for both strategies at once is very limited.

Swapping Always Watching , Anointed Procession and Intangible Virtue for a set of Honor of the Pure seems like a no brainer, the same is true for Cast Out and Authority of the Consuls for a set of Brave the Elements.

Cutting both Rhonas's Monument for a full set of Oketra's Monument seems like a clear upgrade since only Hamlet Captain is strictly .

I would also cut both Banishing Stroke and Captain's Claws for 2 Dromoka's Command and another Path to Exile.
