Can I suggest splash green for Gaddock Teeg? That helps with a lot of bad matchups.

Possibly top your curve with Kinsbaile Borderguard

I have a few recommendations for this deck. Firstly, Cenn's Heir, Kinsbaile Borderguard, and Ballyrush Banneret seem like auto includes for Kithkin tribal. Cenn's Enlistment is a little mana intensive, but it gives you bodies of a relevant type, and can be recurred in the late game and turn dead land draws into bodies. Surge of Thoughtweft could be played strictly for flavor if that's something you're interested in.

Additionally, I feel like you don't need as many filler Kithkin like Amrou Kithkin and Kinscaer Harpoonist and could use more tribal staples like Kindred Discovery and Herald’s Horn , as well as a better control package of cards like Beast Within and Pongify.

This looks like a good start and I'm really interested to see where you take it, as I can see it heading towards either an Agro or Control strategy.

The top cards im considering for that spot in order are:

Kinsbaile Borderguard for the large creature and minions on death

Order of Whiteclay for graveyard retrieval

Augury Adept for card draw and life gain

Spectral Procession for 3 flyers

zephyr_chang Ya Wilt-Leaf Liege is an odd one, ive tried a few different cards (like Tarmogoyf and Kinsbaile Borderguard) it just always feels like its filler.Kinsbaile Borderguard is still one of my favorite options and so is Order of Whiteclayi dont want to put in Metallic Mimic because it is not protected by Brave the Elements, the same reson i stopped considering Tarmogoyf.

Metallic Mimic is an ok combo with Kinsbaile Borderguard too, and neither of them are terrible on their own in this deck.

SpiritoftheSands on Bolster this, counter on that.. oh, and a token!

id recomend replaceing him with Kinsbaile Borderguard or Brimaz, King of Oreskos, while they dont give counters to your other dudes, they spit out tokens like nobody business. ive found that general is only good if you tap all your creatures and have a way to untap them during your opponents upkeep

Thank you for your detailed comment! :)

I think Cloudgoat Ranger is to slow for my deck. I do run 3 coppies of Militia's Pride. I looked at Ballyrush Banneret but it would only affect Kinsbaile Borderguard and Militia's Pride since all the other cards dont have collerless mana.

Thistledown Liege and Zealous Guardian look realy fun to play thanks for pointing them out.

I replaced Dismember with Journey to Nowhere.
