Kytheon, Hero of Akros Discussion

The list looks pretty utilitarian and I'm liking it. Some humans I'll put to your consideration on the chance you may not have considered them are Accorder Paladin, Precinct Captain, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Militia Bugler, and a few that sit in the blurred line of budget-friendly: Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, Hero of Bladehold and Mikaeus, the Lunarch.
I built a soldiers tribal with mostly humans, it's not budget so it's just a theoretical build for me (I don't actually own Aether Vial or a number of the others). This is it if you're interested. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/meek-soldiers/?cb=1541883813
My version very much thrives on the CA provided by Mentor of the Meek so it doesn't use Honor of the Pure or Benalish Marshal, as they turn off the card draw from 2-power creatures. It's tricky but I was trying to minimize internal friction and maximize potential at the same time. Perhaps it's still better to include a couple of Anthem effects regardless.

I am not sure about Ghitu Lavarunner also. It will be hard to turn him on turn 2 - 4 with only 13 instants.
Earthshaker Khenra could be a good budget suggestion.
Dryad Militant is possiblly one of the best 1 cost 2 power creatures.

Preeminent Captain can't chain its ability onto another Preeminent Captain, so I'm not sure if you want more of those. You'll dump your hand a little faster but the lack of card advantage hits you quickly. If it was me building it I would drop the Kor Skyfisher and Armored Ascension in favor of more 1-drop creatures. Some for your consideration are Soldier of the Pantheon, Dryad Militant, War Falcon, Skymarcher Aspirant and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip. I would consider Light from Within and Return to the Ranks as finishers as well.

I am surprised no Heroes' Podium make them all power each other.
Others that could do some good are some of the low drop legendary mostly for the ones that effect half your board negatively. Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, Isamaru, Hound of Konda or Mikaeus, the Lunarch over Crovax, Ascendant Hero or Ascendant Evincar. I can understand if it is a price thing but the Podium is cheap.

@enpc: Oviya vs Rhys was the hardest decision going into this deck. In the end, I went with Oviya because I already had her as a prerelease promo, and Rhys sets forth a very different message and supports a different gameplan. I'd love to use Mikaeus, the Lunarch and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, but I wanted to build a 1-drop deck, not a Rhys deck. If someone else was starting from scratch I'd advise them to go with Rhys, though.

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.
I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.
Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.

You're going to need a lot more 1-drops. Remember, if you don't play anything turn 1, you probably won't be activating battalion until turn 5, which is far too late. Good options include Goblin Guide, Legion Loyalist, Champion of the Parish, Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, and Isamaru, Hound of Konda.
I'd consider cutting Make a Stand and Firemane Avenger. Make a Stand is a lot worse than it looks. It's only good in specific matchups, and very hard to get good timing with. As for Firemane Avenger, it's a 4-drop that doesn't give you immediate value and dies to bolt. That's a no-no in modern.

sergiodelrio: unless you're talking about Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, gideon can't be sacrificed to Liliana of the Veil's -2. lili's abilities can't be used at instant speed while a gideon planeswalker has turned itself into a creature "until end of turn".
