Sigarda, Heron's Grace could help out, be a human, but she protects them and poops out humans. The token outlet could maybe work with Kessig Malcontents.

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.
