Intangible Virtue Discussion
6 days ago
I have more if you want to. But first of i want to ask what will be the focus of your deck? One big creature? lifegain stuff? Depending on what you want from your Deck there are better options for some of your cards. I would advise, to go wider instead of bigger. This would also help to generate even more tokens with March of the Multitudes and spiral out of control. that being said...
Also Intangible Virtue (although the vigilance is great) and Path of Bravery feel kind of not impactful. I think, when you play an anthem-effect it should possibly be a game ending threat like Beastmaster Ascension already is. For example the allstar Craterhoof Behemoth .
Are you on a budget? There are some good cheaper options in: Triumph of the Hordes , Cathars' Crusade . Oh and I don't understand your decision to include Elfhame Druid , because you have no kicker spells. how about Avacyn's Pilgrim instead?
Keep it up and please tell us how your deck worked in your league. And I am sorry for my bad english, I am not native.

I'd try to go with playsets. Like he mentioned, it will help with consistency and therefore power. You already have cards in the mainboard that having 4 of would be great. Raise the Alarm , Honor of the Pure , and Secure the Wastes are awesome. If you want to overrun your opponent, most of your offensive threats should be 3 converted mana cost or less. Anything above that should very likely be removed. Otherwise it'll be hard to race people. Legion's Landing Flip helps here. I also love Spectral Procession . It's great. If you do go a heavy token route than Intangible Virtue is awesome. Also, if you want to keep the deck mono-white without splashing for black, then Signal Pest is good. Black offers options like Lingering Souls and Zealous Persecution .

We focused a lot on the artifact aspect of thopters. Here are some cards that focus on the token aspect:
Anointed Procession <--EXPENSIVE

lagotripha I understand where you're coming from, this deck isn't a full fledged tokens aggro deck that can maximize on Intangible Virtue every single turn against every deck. However I strongly believe its superior to the options you listed for the following reasons:
Intangible Virtue is a permanent that's not a creature, that gives value to more than 1 card at a time. Generally they'll have to use the same removal for it that they would have to use for my PW or other enchantments.
Lingering Souls poops out immediate tokens, yes. However one of the main goals of the deck is to play Rest in Peace as soon as possible to not only combo with Kaya, Orzhov Usurper but also just to shut down a lot of strategies that are popular in Modern right now. So I have to discard the flashback ability. Spectral Procession might be a better option if I'm looking for immediate volume.
Myth Realized seems like a pretty bad option. You have to commit mana to it every turn, its strength is highly reliable on building up, and it's easy to answer since it doesn't have any sort of protection like Gideon Jura . It doesn't put you ahead in any way, vs dropping a random Intangible Virtue with 3 tokens out now you hit for 6 for 2 mana.
Luminarch Ascension doesn't fit this deck since I have so much self-inflicted loss of life. It doesn't matter what the source is, if you read the card closely.
Pack Rat is also another card that you honestly should build around an

Thanks for your second comment. I really appreciate how you have helped me past the required one comment.
I'm not a big fan of Intangible Virtue , as most of my tokens already have Vigilance, but I'll still consider it. I'm definitely adding Dictate of Heliod and Spear of Heliod for Coat of Arms and Luminarch Ascension . I'm also taking out some cards that I thought were not very helpful in this deck, which I'll say in an update.

Oh yeah I would say Helm of the Host would be amazing!! You get multiple triggers on the Oketra ability, so if you have three, one creature will get you 3x 4/4 Zombies. Definitely value.
I think if You want to go really hard into the angel theme, then Luminarch Ascension and Coat of Arms are great, but as you're focusing more on Oketra, I think trying to power her ability will be the best way to complement the deck. Spear of Heliod for example can be a great anthem with a secondary ability. Dictate of Heliod is good and at Flash speed. Intangible Virtue would actually work really well, too.
Because the Angel subtheme is secondary to the main "cast creatures, get zombies" thing, you can consider cutting it in order to streamline the deck :) But of course, that's up to you. If you want to do Angels, you could always sub in Lyra Dawnbringer as your Commander. :)

To fit your theme of Noncreature spells for dovescape and monastery mentor, I would suggest cutting Boros elite for Spiritual Visit , or maybe even Legion's Landing Flip. The elite hits a little harder, but the legion's landing makes a lifelink guy, a land (presumably pretty quickly in your deck) and the legend rule doesn't matter much since the enchantment doesn't matter as much as the token to you. Spiritual visit is a recommendation just because i think the colorless spirit token is very pretty.
I would also swap Cathars' crusade for Intangible Virtue . Coming down 3 turns earlier means you'll get a lot more out of virtue.

Thanks for the reply lagotripha! Care to explain why you think Intangible Virtue is a bad choice? It's the cornerstone of any tokens strategy, and having that alternative source of pressure to make your tokens more relevant seems pretty strong against decks that depend on long games.
Blood Baron of Vizkopa seems like it could be a strong SB card, good one! Also just a side note, he's still vulnerable to discard since text doesn't do anything until the card is in play.
