Honor of the Pure Discussion
17 hours ago
I would go with Honor of the Pure > Path of Bravery. I understand the extra life-gain on attack but I like the idea of it dropping a turn earlier (and potentially be able to blow out affinity's 1 toughness creatures ;p). i would also look into Return to the Ranks > Immortal Servitude. While I do like Immortal Servitude you can get thinks like your Mentor of the Meek or Ajani's Pridemate back with Return to the Ranks. Not to mention you get to stack how they enter so Pridemade can become MASSIVE upon entry.There's another way you can go with the deck as well. If you get Thalia's Lieutenant, Champion of the Parish and Thraben Inspector with Ajani's Pridemate, Mentor of the Meek and Doomed Traveler you have a cool human synergy Soul Sisters deck for very little $$$$. Sorry for the novel, I just LOVE the Soul Sisters deck. A really good person to watch on youtube is The Rouge Deckbuilder. He plays SS competitively and has like 4 different builds of the deck. Good Luck and have fun!

Bloodhall Ooze, Experiment One, Scavenging Ooze, and Predator Ooze are all reasonable cards for Modern. Necrotic Ooze is more of something you want to build around as its own deck, not necessarily toss into anything. Acidic Slime is also a good card, but the rest of your deck seems to be more aggro, making 5 CMC a bit high.
So of course, where does that leave you now that sylvannos has shown up and shit all over your idea?
For one, notice how much of a +1/+1 counter theme you have going on between Bloodhall Ooze, Experiment One, Scavenging Ooze, and Predator Ooze. Hardened Scales is absolutely bananas! That right there functions as your Intangible Virtue or Honor of the Pure. All of your oozes will just start doubling in size. Winding Constrictor is similar: it's a low CMC card that dumps a bunch of counters on everything. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar offers even more +1/+1 counters.
Second, you're in Jund colors. Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, Atarka's Command, Terminate, and Fatal Push are all good options here. You're basically a quick, low-cost aggro deck. That also means you can play Dark Confidant to further increase your draw power. Since you curve out at 3 (Predator Ooze and possibly Nissa, Voice of Zendikar), you'll only be taking 1 damage on average each turn. This also opens up the potential for Liliana of the Veil. You're constantly drawing and playing oozes, while forcing your opponent to discard cards.
Copperline Gorge is a good start, but you really don't want to have lands that always come into play tapped. Fetches and shocks are going to be your best options, along with the aforementioned Cavern of Souls. I'd also recommend Blooming Marsh, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Kessig Wolf Run.
Lastly, your sideboard. It should probably be some number of hand disruption spells (Duress, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek), artifact and enchantment removal (Destructive Revelry, Ancient Grudge), and general Jund sideboard tech (Fulminator Mage, Kolaghan's Command, Kitchen Finks, Maelstrom Pulse, anything that didn't get put in the main). I'm not sure what other cards you'd add that protect your plan of killing people with oozes. Hindervines? Skullcrack? I dunno.

I will put Mentor of the Meek on my sideboard, and see wich card i will replace for them.
I will think about the artifact, its nice too.

Mentor of the Meek would actually benefit you in this deck since the bulk of your creatures would fit into its triggered ability. It would also give you the chance to draw cards, and that is one of the most important tools to have at your disposal in a game based mostly on chance. Launch the Fleet could be easily replaced by Spectral Procession also. For three white mama you can have three 1/1 fliers as opposed to having to attack with three creatures, paying three mana, and creating three non-fliers. Banishing Light and the cards that are similar, are all good, but Path to Exile has no stipulations to it. Path to Exile has a negative effect, giving an opponent mana, but exiling a creature for one mana as an instant makes up for the negative effect. Honor of the Pure could replace Hall of Triumph since the majority of your creature spells are white to begin with. It's a cheaper card to cast as well. Godsend may be fun to try out in this deck as well. Since this is your first deck, you probably don't want to change too much of its focus, rather than just improve on it as time goes. So, that's really the only additives I have for you.

Other than Sorin's 2/2s all your tokens are white...Honor of the Pure x2 could do work. I think Raise the Alarm is a superior token producer to Gather the Townsfolk due to it's instant speed. Just a personal opinion though. Lastly, a sideboard suggestion I find kind of clever in this kind of deck is Surgical Extraction. Tron is kind of a big deal for us and while Tec edge takes down a land, I think Ghost Quarter is the better one to run main as it can be used before tron is active. When combined with extraction it is devastating to tron, titan shift, etc. Awesome deck +1.

I'd recommend something like Honor of the Pure to give your goats some more value and put some more pressure on your opponents. In general, some mass pump spells would be nice, otherwise your goats won't do all that much until you draw your Mirror Entity or Obelisk.
Adaptive Automaton could help as well.
