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.
Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost Then exile it.)

Increasing Devotion Discussion
1 day ago
Thank you for your majorly helpful suggestion, NV_1980
I had instead switched out Increasing Devotion for Rhys the Redeemed because I feel that Geist-Honored Monk is more efficient with mana (the flashback cost..) + being a beater. I was reluctant to put in Ogre Battledriver from Samut, Voice of Dissent being readily available for that same purpose. Eventually, I figured some sort of anthem is better than a beater like Ulvenwald Hydra. With that being said, I instead switched out the hydra for Wilt-Leaf Liege. As for the land, I switched out Jungle Shrine for a regular mountain. I like having the idea of the luxury of not having to pay for the mana cost on a (hopefully situation permits) high costing spell that all three Hideaway lands provide.
You can expect me to have input on your decks. I enjoy seeing decks that are similar to the decks I build. Thanks again.

No Increasing Devotion or Coat of Arms? while not entirely low on the CMC, but help hulk up the humans. Wake the Reflections, Silence, Mother of Runes could also be useful in this deck for token bursting and protection.

I like the idea of the deck, but I would suggest adding more token fodder for the sac outlets than creatures that give a benefit when they die. While some of those are good, I think adding some cards like Spectral Procession and Increasing Devotion so that you can keep a huge board presence while still commencing the shenanigans. There are a few cards in here that have better, faster options as well. I would maybe focus in on what you want to do with the sacrifice outlets. Blasting Station can probably be cut entirely for one of the token things since it seems to have a lot less synergy with your deck, and all in all isn't that solid of a card. Also consider running the Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Kitchen Finks combo for an almost instant win. Hope these suggestions help!

Two options to generate tokens to buff your creatures are Gather the Townsfolk and Thraben Doomsayer. You could also consider Increasing Devotion, but it's a little on the CMC-expensive side. While the tokens aren't soldiers, they are humans, so they synergize with Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish. The only downside is that the tokens don't synergize with Field Marshal, who targets only soldiers, but all other buffs work on human tokens. Also, Gather the Townsfolk can help you flip Kytheon, Hero of Akros on turn two.

JesusLady nice deck. I am building a similar deck from four Ravenous Demon Flip but my deck will be on a tighter budget. I like that you are using Increasing Devotion & Gather the Townsfolk along with Champion of the Parish. I can see these cards adding up quickly and flooding the board with human tokens. I will be able to better to critique your deck after I finish my own and test it out a bit. Seeing your deck has motivate me and given me ideas. Thanks!

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.
