Joraga Warcaller Discussion
1 day ago
Hello and welcome! First thing, mind your budget: Affinity is relatively cheap compared to other Tier 1 deck, but you have to be prepared to spend a lot of money for playsets of its best cards like Mox Opal and Arcbound Ravager if you want to upgrade your budget list. Btw, if you are interested Magic Aids published a good Tempered Steel build, slightly different from the usual because it is mono-white and uses cards from Kaladesh and Aether Revolt which are easy to find in any LGS.
I would also suggest you to take a look at some alternatives i personally prefer to those you proposed and are competitive for their price:
-Mono-G Elves; upgradable in Elves combo, Gb Elves or Gw Elves. You won't snowball as fast without Collected Company, but the budget alternatives make you sufficently fast the majority of time. Only problem i had with it is i couldn't find Elvish Archdruid, Joraga Warcaller or Ezuri, Renegade Leader at my LGS because Elves are quite popular as a tribe and you too could have problem in that sense.
-Mono-Black Control; upgradable to Mono-B devotion, BG Rock, BR control, Jund and Abzan. A personal favourite, black already has removals, hand disruption, board wipes, card advantage and win conditions on its own. It can be built in a lot of ways from classic devotion (Budget Mono-Black Devotion) to Black Panharmonicon (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-83-40-tix-modern-mono-black-panharmonicon), through midrange Competitive Mono Black Midrange on a Budget or my little project Midrange? No, midnight.).
-BW Tokens or BW Aristocrats. These are both decks with a fairly cheap core and a solid upgrade path for the rest of the deck. Their competitive advantage in the current metagame is that they are resilient to removal and aggro strategies. Neither is a T1 deck, but sometimes someone takes down a tournament with them and they are fun.
-Mono-B vehicles; a sweet list proposed few months ago by SaffronOlive. Here is the article with the matches he played: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-84-50-tix-mono-black-vehicles-modern.
-Mono-U Hatebirds; another recent, juicy build by SaffronOlive. Article with matches is here: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-81-24-tix-favorable-winds-modern. Both lists revolve around one of modern strongest but less played card, Smuggler's Copter, to support an aggressive plan, able to race even with format's top tier. A problem you can have assembling this list in particular is that, after the article was published, Psionic Blast's price spiked. It happens every time Seth builds a succesful list and it is already going back, but you can still have some problem finding and buying copies, so i had to tell you.

You can check out my elf deck for ideas, it's less budget (I call it budget-ish) than yours and thus much more powerful. You can check out my elf deck for ideas if you want and you can always leave suggestions on mine and remember to +1 Upvote if you like it.

Anyway, suggestions for your deck, Ezuri, Renegade Leader and even Joraga Warcaller (It's, even more budget) as better win conditions on turn 4 or 5 than Craterhoof Behemoth also you don't really need Nissa Revane for lifegain, if you are able to gain a significant amount of life then you are just better off having a win condition instead and just winning. One Westvale Abbey Flip for like $3 can get you out of some tight scenarios and act as a win condition. Also Elvish Champion is more of a sideboard card.
Hope the advice helps and make sure to check out my deck too!

I made a few adjustments and replaced Imperious Perfect with Joraga Warcaller, which seems to be a pretty big improvement in speed. There's also some synergy happening between Bramblewood Paragon and Joraga Warcaller that results in Joraga entering the field with bonus counters, making him an alternate finisher if Ezuri doesn't come out.
I'm hoping to make this deck fairly competitive, and if possible around $200, but it's looking like it'll be more like $300!

Gelatinous Genesis and Secure the Wastes can't be hit off of cord or commune. I do like having a couple Helix Pinnacle in there, but consider an infinitely kicked Joraga Warcaller would boost your devoted druid allowing you to swing that turn for lethal. Hurricane would be a decent sideboard against fliers and as a tie for bad matchups, and Staff of Domination would allow you to life gain and draw into your finishers.

Yeah, Ezuri is great ;)
How often do you actually use Imperious Perfect's ability? This seems like a deck that would rather get damage in than leave their creatures back. As I said, I prefer Joraga Warcaller. Some other good cards are Coat of Arms, which is a bit slow for competitive modern but I don't know how competitive this deck is meant to bee, and Joraga Treespeaker.

filthyc4sual, thank you for the suggestions!
I swapped out the Champion of Lambholt for Ezuri, Renegade Leader and added more consistency with Collected Company and Summoner's Pact. So far I prefer Bramblewood Paragon mostly because of the Elf synergy, since he gets +1/+1's from Ezuri and other elves, but I'll try working in Joraga Warcaller.
I haven't gotten a change to play it against other decks yet, but in playtests it's been doing about 40 damage by turn 6, Ezuri was definitely a big improvement!

Joraga Warcaller + Immaculate Magistrate can really get out of hand. Elvish Promenade can also work at getting a bunch of elves that are much more expendable; I personally like to drop a late-game Overrun and win games that way with the tokens (although you do have Ezuri for that purpose, I guess)

I've never understood why people choose to play Nissa Revane. She's basically a slow Wellwisher that forces you to include a bad card. Some cards that I would replace those two with are Joraga Warcaller as a lord that scales, and Metallic Mimic. I also would try to make room for Heritage Druid and Immaculate Magistrate. Coat of Arms and Obelisk of Urd are a must-have in tribal EDH decks, and you seem to be missing a Sol Ring ;)
Great deck overall though!
