Kytheon, Hero of Akros Discussion

Dude I love White Weenie decks. I play something similar, and it does decent on FNM.
I would defiently add a playset of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. It does wonders against control decks, and Storm.
I would also add a playset of Imposing Sovereign. This card does work against other aggro decks. It gives your creatures a pseudo haste. Which is something white doesn't have.
You can play Elite Vanguard if you want, but I would run something like Mardu Woe-Reaper, Soldier of the Pantheon, and only two Kytheon, Hero of Akros. Reaper and Soldier might not look like much of an improvement, but they give you more options. Reaper has saved me a couple times from people trying to go infinite by taking out a piece of their combo out of the graveyard. Soldier just can get through or block multi colored creatures all day.
Then I would add two more Brave the Elements. This card is bonkers. It's an I win now card, or a counter spell. It's literally why you would want to play the deck and what pushes the deck over the hump.
I would probably cut one of the Fiendslayer Paladin. It's actually a pretty good card, and something I haven't thought of. In a heavy burn meta that card is really good. The card that I run over him is Mirran Crusader, but both have their upsides and are definitely worth swapping out for the other depending on the meta. The reason I would only run two is because I try to keep my mana curve low. Before I switched to Crusader I use to run Silverblade Paladin. It's a good card that can win you the game on the spot, or give you the push you need to start winning. The only problem with it is. It was fragile and died to removal easily.
Yeah thats pretty much it. If you go to my site you can find the humans deck I was talking about for a good list.

Then, Deploy the Gatewatch, and "Oops! All Gideons!"
Cast Gideons earlier in the game with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Leyline of the Meek (goes well with Oath of Gideon or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar tokens). Get even more devotion action with Evangel of Heliod.
Do you think you'd need Mirror Gallery?
Ah, I don't know, don't take anything I say seriously. Like the deck, though.

So, after looking through gatherer, For a 1CMC aggro I would recommend in this order:
Kytheon, Hero of Akros - Because of possible resiliency against control, + in an aggro deck like this one, a real possibility of transforming if you don't miss a drop.Isamaru, Hound of Konda - Because it's a 2/2 for 1Dryad Militant - Because of Jeskai (specifically hating against Snapcaster Mage)Bloodsoaked Champion - Because it can come back (which is nice against control)
I would cut into the disruption for these. 6 discard cards is normal for midrange, but for aggro, you shouldn't run so many imho. You want to deal damage fast.

Just saw Kytheon, Hero of Akros? Seems to fit the resilient part..maybe?

So far none of these Ultra Budgets have been very competitive in modern, considering the speed of the meta I can't imagine them working to well. I want to build a more competitive one. I do really like the idea, and some (Like the elemental fling one) were still very good. The issue was that they were around 40+ dollars, rather than 20-10 dollar price range.
I tried to make one using the Heroic keyword, building it around cantrips that target creatures (like Bandage and Defiant Strike) along with good heroic abilities like Phalanx Leader and Favored Hoplite, filling the mana curve out with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Fabled Hero, and Vanguard of Brimaz, and it works suprisingly well, winning turn 4-5 on average, but I did have a game with a turn 3 kill, just because of the synergy that can be acomplished with the strive mecahanic of Launch the Fleet, targetting my two Phalanx Leaders, two Vanguard of Brimaz, and a Fabled Hero to get a board of giant (3/3 & 4/4) cats, and a giant Fabled Hero (5/5 Double Strike) for a big win.
Another Idea for a super budget is a combo deck, one that uses 2x Zombie Infestation & 4x Treasure Hunt, 4x Reliquary Tower and finishing the deck with 25x Swamp and 25x Island, I will let you imagine hoe the deck wins!
Another powerful budget deck is Kithkin! They have one of the cheapest good lords with Wizened Cenn and have Ballyrush Banneret, Rustic Clachan, Goldmeadow Stalwart, and a bunch of other great tribal elements at a cheap price. That kind of deck is also able to be easily upgraded for a still small price, with cards like Knight of Meadowgrain, Honor of the Pure, Militia's Pride, and Thoughtweft Trio for not extreme prices.
An easy deck to build is mono-white "2 for 1", its a deck I built a while back around just dropping cards like Expedition Envoy, Dragon Hunter, Dryad Militant, Mardu Woe-Reaper, Savannah Lions, Elite Vanguard, etc. backing them up by using Brave the Elements, and Honor of the Pure if you want. For a cheap version, you don't need to, and even for one that runs Isamaru, Hound of Konda and Kytheon, Hero of Akros, the deck cost less than 30 dollars.
The point of the comment is that I feel that though these decks are interesting and fun to play with, if competitive decks for a low cost are required, I think more competitive decks for a cheaper (or equal) cost are possible.
In the case of this deck (similar to neg counters), it requires the opponent to be playing creatures, and also be playing slowly enough, or with out removal, for you to steal them. This deck also doesn't have any way of dealing with the graveyard, has no sideboard, can't remove creatures, enchantments, lands, or artifacts opponents control, and though the deck is slow, it doesn't have the control elements like counter spells to support it, even though it is in the colors... It also can't speed the deck up with ramp or draw even though it is in the colors! Blue/green card draw could also help with Lorescale Coatl and ramp could make Nimbus Swimmer a seriously viable option.
If you do want ramp/draw, Explore is a super cheap option. More cantrip buffs could also help with the deck consistency, and I could go on and on, but it just seems like you didn't look at the deck for play-ability, but instead based on random cards you thought would be cool. I can't help look through every card to try and make this a viable option, because in the end I don't think it is an option, against pretty much any meta modern deck, where as my Heroic deck beats Naya Burn more often than not, and can stand to fight Affinity and Death's Shadow too. It doesn't stand a chance against Tron or make other decks, but this one can't stand against pretty much any.

Thanks for the comment Camrakul I do like Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip but feel he will be too difficult to flip, as i'm nearly playing creatureless, I also plan on keeping the 2 mainboard Wrath of God which he doesn't synchronize well with and when he flips into a planeswalker he doesnt have ability's that I would want in a control deck.
