Put five 1/1 white Human creature tokens onto the battlefield. If Increasing Devotion was cast from a graveyard, put ten of those tokens onto the battlefield instead.

Increasing Devotion Discussion

Hello Kafkaesque_, please playtest Skullclamp thoroughly. It is hard to assess on the paper, but it does not work that well if your creatures get boosted somehow, because you do not get the card immediately (without sacrifice outlet). You basically need your opponent to kill it in combat, and opponent will not cooperate - they will wait to get rid of skullclamp first. It might work for you, though. It is a better card compared to other options by a sufficient margin to give it a try.
Anyway, take out Avacyn, Angel of Hope. It is too expensive to cast it fair way, and it will expose you to opponents Bribery and more notably graveyard recursion. Also Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip does not seem to do much for the deck. I would also take out Marble Diamond for a land - you do not need to accelerate that much and any mass removal for nonland permanents will set you back on mana. Ghostly Prison does not impress me much in this deck, too. You could chump block with tokens easily and Ghostly Prison does not protect your commander! Nomads' Assembly seems like "win more" card to me - if it works, it is excessive, and if it doesn't, it's useless. Either take it out or switch with Increasing Devotion or Conqueror's Pledge

Hey there, nice deck! A guy at my lgs used to run something similar back when I was playing my Affinity deck a lot. It wrecked me every single time.
I'm curious about your choice of Secure the Wastes. Have you considered Increasing Devotion? It gives you better token to mana ratio whether you cast it normally or flash it back. Being able to cast it twice helps for those games where you have to chump block for a number of turns or they are able to wrath the board. Also it has a great synergy with Snapcaster mage, allowing you to target it and get 10 tokens for 5 mana. Just a thought.

As someone who built a competitive humans deck in the past, I'd say this has a good start, but needs some more oomph to get there, so +1.
Accorder Paladin is probably the most aggressive human you could play for 2 mana, as being a 3/1 alone is already strong, but the fact that this card can give battlecry can make it insane with something like Silverblade Paladin.
Increasing Devotion & Ranger of Eos, while they may be solid cards in other white decks, you really want to be aggressive in these decks, so I'd cut them. I'd reccomend upping your Honor of the Pure and Gather the Townsfolk, as they will make this deck far stronger and more consistent.
You should be playing 19-20 lands, espeically if your curve stops at 3 cmc, I'd recommend moving Kytheon to the main, as well as getting path to 4 count.
If you want to look at something to upgrade this and/or look for help, here's a list I made for a friend a while back.

A few cards you could consider for this deck Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter,Master of the Wild Hunt, Increasing Devotion, Sprout Swarm Don't underestimate this card seriously, Precursor Golem, Blade Splicer, Master Splicer, Advent of the Wurm, Armada Wurm, Mimic Vat, and since you seem to have a lot of artifact and enchantment hate in your deck I assume it is a bit of a problem in your meta so perhaps you could try Nullmage Shepherd and Reclamation Sage.

I found some cool things when trying to find human solders. Brave the Elements could save your creatures from some hate, or a free blocking turn. you could also use Cloudshift to flicker Captain of the Watch or Ranger of Eos for extra triggers.

LeaPlath Aetherflux Reservoir and Boon Reflection play off of Anointer Priest and Increasing Devotion imprinted onto Panoptic Mirror and/or Isochron Scepter imprinted with any of the instants, the massive life gain Anointer Priest earns you from pumping out tokens through Increasing Devotion and Isochron Scepter constantly casting spells will give you an reasonable life lead to strike with Aetherflux Reservoir. Nightveil Specter and Sadistic Sacrament provide a way to mill out decks, sending them into exile prevents something like Elixir of Immortality from putting those cards back into play. Chromatic Lantern pairs together with Nightveil Specter to allow our mana to be any color and allow us to use any card in any opponent's deck, that way we're able to use the cards Nightveil Specter exiled. Elixir of Immortality is an extra layer of protection from all the important artifacts getting sent into the graveyard. Hedron Archive is an alternative to Palladium Myr since they're susceptible to spells that destroy creatures. Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a Trespasser's Curse for more spell-heavy decks that don't run many creatures to make Trespasser's Curse a real threat. Lightmine Field is an alternative to Norn's Annex for white decks where the Phyrexian/White mana isn't as much of a threat as decks without white. Path to Exile is for decks that keep pulling creatures from their graveyards. Staff of the Sun Magus is fodder for life gain since Isochron Scepter constantly casts white spells.
