Precinct Captain and Raise the Alarm are excellent cost-efficient ways to generate tokens to trigger odric, instant speed tokens is also strong as blockers or end of opponent casts so they can swing right away

Champion of the Parish gets really big, really fast here and is played on turn 1

Mentor of the Meek is excellent card draw as well Timely Reinforcements is an excellent sideboard card. Speaking of sideboard, you're going to need one to deal with modern meta decks.

Id recommend 2 or 3 Timely Reinforcements, 2 Stony Silence, 2 Rest in Peace, 2 Kor Firewalker, 2 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben 3-4 Leyline of Sanctity and 2-4 Path to Exile

Well if you want it to be competitive you can't pretty much cut certain cards like Blood Moon and Leyline of Sanctity. R/W Prison is not really best deck on budget. But before suggestion i have to know is it competitive deck or not.

If you want to buy time before you can play some of your tax spells you may want to look at cards like Remand, Boomerang, Muddle the Mixture muddle can be really good since you can fetch what you want with transmute if your not countering something.

Porphyry Nodes might be a good card against creature heavy decks but you kind of want a win condition also and that can kill your own stuff. Luminarch Ascension could be useful here as a late game finisher.

Leyline of Sanctity is the card by far to stop people looking at your hand or sending burn spells to your head.

Good luck with it all.

Xica on Why hasn't Mardu found a ...

So in response to bullshit like:
"Without "catch all" cards like Maelstrom Pulse/Abrupt Decay or Mana Leak - if the threat enters play...Mardu tends to loose."
"Mardu lacks a reliable, strong threat like Tarmogoyf. Either you go tokens and go wide, or you play a much more controlling style with higher top end threats."

I would be glad to present some cards that were printed AFTER the old Innistrad block
Anguished Unmaking & Utter End are as universal, as removal can get.
Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion do provide a beater that is always bigger than goys (8/8 > 7/8).
Yes it comes down later, but its not such a great problem, when your life total can't change. It also dodges a LOT of removal, from the top of my head its only hit by 3 cards that are more or less common in modern Path to Exile, Murderous Cut & Maelstrom Pulse.
(P.s.: drawing it off bob is only a problem if you don't have one in play, and you can easily run this 8 mana monster as a 2 of)

Lets also not forget that whit provides the strongest hate in the sideboard Rest in Peace; Leyline of Sanctity; Stony Silence.

The colors have fewer problems than most people think but they are not insignificant:1# Its not established - thus fewer people play it, because the wise spikes have tunnel vision - and the colors are at their best at midrange, thus there is no meta where this deck would beat the most popular deck, thus goldfishing victory.
2# It misses some modern "staples" that must be included in every deck - according to some people's thinking - Snapcaster Mage; Tarmogoyf
3# It has stuff that costs 4 cmc! and without "delve"! That is heresy.
As everyone knows modern games always end before T4, thus this deck auto loses to everything, as its too slow.

Also, by adding a convertible mana SB, you can not only throw your opponent off, but protect yourself from burn with 3x Leyline of Sanctity. It's the only hope you've got against burn, really. You don't even need to splash white if you can draw one on your opening hand (I've won several game 2-3's by mulliganing until I get one).

Go Esper, friend. You'll be so thankful you did.

If your just getting into modern, here's my take to help you play a mill deck with a sideboard for the format modern.

Game 1 is full throttle wincon. Put enough disruption in to get the job done as fast as possible to see what you're up against. The sideboard is used to fill in defensive holes games 2&3. Mill catds shouldn't be included in the SB, they don't help you. You need to buy more time to make the deck work.

That being said, you need to drop from the SB the following:
Belltower Sphinx
Grisly Spectacle
Psychic Strike
Psychic Spiral
These cards are too expensive and do too little, too late.
Visions of Beyond- (you already have 3 in MB)
I would suggest MB your Crypt Incursions, as well. These have done SO.MUCH for me, and many decks have a hard time coming back from your lifegain.

Consider for your SB, going Esper. Add like 5 plains, a couple Ethereal Haze, Darkness, Ghostly Prison (for go-wide decks) or Holy Day, to stop combat damage. Perhaps some Path to Exile to set up a free Archive Trap trigger. Seek can proactively find and remove GY reshufflers like the Eldrazi titans (Emerakul, Ulamog), and artifacts/enchantments like Leyline of Sanctity, Elixir of Immortality, and Wheel of Sun and Moon. Alternatively, you

If Affinity is found in your meta, I would try Hurkyl's Recall, or a bit more expensive card like Stony Silence.
