Kabira Evangel is also way better than Lantern Scout, so I'd go down 1 Scout for the Evangel. Evangel is also really strong with Collected Company, you can Company in response to removal or in combat and save your creatures this way.

How to fix up this deck to be Modern competitive on a budget:



Remove an Anointer of Champions, and drop two of the Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip' then take out the Expedition Envoys, Declaration in Stones, Consul's Lieutenant, and finally the Gryff's Boons. (15 total cards)

Add 4 Soldier of the Pantheons (better than Expedition Envoy), 4 Champion of the Parishs (like Thalia's Lieutenant but is a one drop, and half the abilities), 4 Gather the Townsfolks ((For Champion of the Parish, and Thalia's Lieutenant)), and finally a Plains and 2 Windbrisk Heights (Card advantage).



Remove all Silkwraps, Plains, Pacifism, Lantern Scout, and Eerie Interlude (11 total)

Add 4 Fragmentizes, 4 Path to Exile, 3 Rest in Peace, 2 Stony Silence


If you want:

Switch Always Watching (doesn't affect the Gather the Townsfolk humans, more expensive, but has vigilance) for Honor of the Pure (Cheaper, works on tokens, but doesn't have vigilance, and won't buff flipped Town Gossipmonger  Flip)

Switch Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon of the Trials, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Goldmane, Ajani Steadfast, or Gideon, Champion of Justice although I like Elspeth, all of them are great in their own right.

Quick ins and outs.

This deck is from MTGGoldfish Budget Mono White Servos Standard.

I tried to find cards that played similar to cards that I replaced. I will try to explain my thought process so maybe someone can either build on that or use that to correct my thinking. I'm ok with either.

Stasis Snare -> Cast Out

Stasis costs where Cast Out costs , both are CMC 3 and since this is a mono white deck this doesn't matter so cost is equal. Cast out also includes cycling which I believe makes it better than stasis as it gives more flexibility.

Blessed Alliance -> Renewed Faith

Blessed costs and Renewed costs , small negative here at first but the escalate cost of causes Blessed to take on a cost for usefulness, minimum. Renewed gets an immediate use cost of for 6 life then optional for 2, overall for 8. The downsite of Renewed is we lose the untap and sacrifce options of Blessed Might have to revist this swap out later.

Immolating Glare -> Sandblast

Losing cost advantage here first of all. Immolating is and Sandblast is . Not ideal. Second it only deals 5 damage and isn't a blanket removal. I don't like this swap out but this is the only thing I could find right now and will need to dig more.

Lantern Scout -> Anointer Priest

Cost advantage here, going from to but the use changes. We lose the lifelink ability and instead we move to an enter the battlefield concept. Since we are making a bunch of servo's the goal would be to capture that mass creation and use that to trickle life in. Plus if we really need it we can embalm the priest.

Make a Stand -> Inspired Charge

Bad gain in cost, Stand costs and Inspired costs . We also lose the indestructible trait as well which isn't ideal. Although the upside is we get a +2/+1 rather than a +1/+0 but this might be too insignificant for the cost and less effect. Might need to revisit.

Some idea's I had as well would be to add Oketra's Monument to handle some of the cost changes. I would go Aethersphere Harvester -> Oketra's Monument, still toying with this.

Well, white does the +1/+1 counter thing better than other colors (see Hada Freeblade, and Kazandu Blademaster), and can life life better than black (see Lantern Scout, Talus Paladin, and Ondu Cleric. But black is the only color that does loss of life. If you are super interested in those mechanics, I might suggest doing a rally build. Not rally as in the rally keyword, but Rally the Ancestors. It is a deck that focuses on getting allies into your graveyard through Halimar Excavator, and other self mill spells, and then slapping down a Rally the Ancestors. You wind up doing a lot of damage through Kalastria Healer, (and Zulaport Cutthroat/Blood Artist if you use sacrifice effects). Combined with hasty allies such as Akoum Battlesinger, you can win a variety of ways.

Aeradom on Sodium Hypochlorite (White as Fuck!)

I think this deck could use a little lowering of its mana curve. To accomplish this, I'd recommend dropping Ondu Cleric and Talus Paladin for Expedition Envoy and Lantern Scout. Lantern Scout is already taking care of the role Talus Paladin was filling and to give the deck a little more oomph up front I'm leaning towards the Expedition envoy instead of Ondu Cleric.
