Kessig Malcontents Discussion

SynergyBuild on White Humans (Intro Deck)

The price was one complaint, the deck isn't good at teaching. I am still confused as to the point of Mutavault, and I had been playing for two months (1 month since I was introduced to modern). This is the deck I know the most about, having been playing mono-white soldier tribal for the majority of my time in modern. I have beaten plenty of decks with them, and I know that Mutavault isn't a good fit. Hanweir Garrison very well with Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, and then you can get Hanweir Battlements as well. Boros is great with humans (Thatcher Revolt) for buffing the Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, other than that in red think Kessig Malcontents, Riot Ringleader and much more.

There is much more than just the price I had an issue with.

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.

With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.

Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

In order for Evolving Wilds to be useful, there have to be basic lands in the deck. I'd recommend 10 Plains and 6 Mountain, and getting rid of Vault of the Archangel because this deck doesn't use black mana. Cloudshift seems like it would only be useful for Kessig Malcontents, so I would use fewer of each of those cards.

Hello slaftergames,

To counter Ghostly Prison or other annoying enchantments i have Demystify, and i usually dont get that much humans on the 'field to make Kessig Malcontents that much usefull.

Im not using Path to Exile because they are kinda expensive but im definitely getting a couple of Lightning Helix on the Sideboard since i alredy have 2.

Regarding Gather the Townsfolk and Honored Crop-Captain, I will consider adding them.

Thank you for your help!

You might consider: Honored Crop-Captain, Kessig Malcontents in the sideboard to answer stuff like enchantment prison, and Gather the Townsfolk if you want to increase the utility of cards like Honor of the Pure by putting more bodies on the 'field

Also Lightning Helix and Path to Exile could help the removal suite, but it looks like you're trying to focus more on your own creatures than on getting rid of the enemy's, so maybe they don't fit as well here.

Fiend Hunter is always a good idea in a white deck.

Throw in a few sac outlets like Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar and you can generate infinite mana with the Hunter + Angel of Glory's Rise.

Kessig Malcontents and/or Vigilante Justice turns that combo into a machine gun that kills all of your opponents.

Greater Good lets you put every creature in your deck into play (with Haste from Samut) at once by saccing the Hunter to draw one and then putting them into your bin to get brought back by the Angel.

Throw in Grand Abolisher so your opponents can't disrupt the combo once it gets started (also maybe Dragonlord Dromoka if your're willing to make the exception on Tribe) and then laugh.

I can see where this is going, and I like it, but there are two major hurdles to cross. One is that your curve drops a lot of creatures on to the battlefield a little late, and they don't have the immediate board presence to offset this loss- this isn't Gatekeeper of Malakir stuff- eternal witness is a great card but its just a bear the turn you play it, and that is unlikely to be enough to survive in this fast-paced metagame.

The second issue is unreliable mana- your lands are entering untapped which is essential for creature based aggro, but are not providing multiple colours, effectively leaving multiple cards in your hand blank.

I'd reccomend adding the following, and cutting the number of cards that don't have an immediate impact on the game.

Budget - Avacyn's Pilgrim Honored Hierarch Magus of the Vineyard Wild Cantor Bloodlust Inciter Boros Elite Doomed Traveler Ulvenwald Tracker Experiment One Knight of the White Orchid etc.

Less budget -Karplusan Forest Rootbound Crag Sunpetal Grove Clifftop Retreat Cryptolith Rite Inspiring Vantage.

Don't talk about the price - Noble Hierarch Knight of the Reliquary+fetches Horizon Canopy Blood Moon etc. Just look at tournament lists at this point. All lists including this type of card have been largely explored and optimised, so its not much worth mucking around with.

I'd reccomend cryptolith over prismatic, because you need the added acceleration if you're sacrificing a turn to play it in a deck that wants to be attacking and casting bigger stuff. That said, you could just play token spells in those slots or some more lands. It doesn't look as flashy, but it keeps the deck running smoothly without 'loosing' a turn.

You can make the deck a lot, lot more stable by leaving a colour to later in the game, only including a single basic and alternative ways of producing the mana, allowing you to reliably cast creatures turns 1-2-3. You aren't pumping out hoardes of goblin or elemental tokens or abusing flicker for impact tremors to be super effective, so leaving the only red spells as Kessig Malcontents as a finishing blow in an otherwise green/white list will be a lot more reliable. Swap kytheon and twin bolt main to sideboard- you might want to keep the impact tremors there if you face a lot of Fog effects.

Borderland ranger is too expensive mana wise for what it does- Harrow is an instant and leaves two lands untapped and better creatures are out there to fix mana. There are better cards for that slot.

All told, playtest, look at what other people are doing and most of all, have fun!

5 color?!? Now I know your crazy, but 5 color crazy? ;). Well I think you need to have equipments that are made for humans like Bladed Bracers, True-Faith Censer and Silver-Inlaid Dagger and if you like scarescrows Harvest Hand  Flip. Then we need some bad-ass humans. I'll just say one human per color to keep it simple. My favorite human/white is Elite Inquisitor, forget the protection, a 2/2 two drop with first strike and vigilance is tight. A great red would be Kessig Malcontents or Riot Ringleader. Green human could be Hamlet Captain or a super badass human Warden of the First Tree. Blue human Captain of the Mists. black human Village Cannibals. Those are just a few. Out of all honesty I think it might be a little ambitious to try 5 color humans m. 3 color might be a happy medium that won't leave you super frustrated trying to make it work ;)
