SufferFromEDHD, first off your username is awesome. I like the idea of adding Recruiter of the Guard , but its a pricey card that can only grab maybe five cards in the deck, so I don't know if its worth it. I really like Rishadan Brigand , so i might cut Elite Guardmage for it, thanks for that. Lumbering Battlement in honestly an amazing card. I added it on a whim, and it does a lot more work than you would think: it discourages and protects against board wipes and lowers the amount of blink effects needed for the most value. There's been times I've been able to tuck a few good creatures under it and blink it with Deadeye Navigator a couple times and completely take over the table. I try to only exile half my creatures with it, and I've found most won't bother wiping the board, since you'll still get value and have a better board state once they do. Try it, it might surprise you. Cheers.

Hey man, I absolutely love the deck!

I also noticed that you have a heap of ETB creatures and thought a combo could be fun and help you tutor up all the pieces you need to get those pesky Hedrons where they belong!

If you use Fiend Hunter , Lumbering Battlement , and something like Wormfang Drake you can get infinite ETB effects with any other creature on the field when you play them! This is probably pretty clunky and not awesome but hopefully it should be quite fun to pull off.

Also, if you are using Mycosynth Lattice , Karn, the Great Creator is PRETTY good.

Not sure how hard you want to lean into Rules Lawyer but he has some nice synergy with Planeswalkers and their counters. Karn cannot die for having 0 counters on him, so that's fun! And don't forget that tokens can now live in the Graveyard and in exile :D

Meteor Golem could be fun?

Lumbering Battlement could also help abuse the ETB triggers.

Thanks wallisface. You're right about two different decks. I was trying to make the Lumbering Battlement / Thud combo work in Standard, but wasn't really coming together and then got some Ephemerate in Modern Horizons drafts and thought about more blinking/ETB things. Result is a little unbalanced. I really wanted to make this work, but it may be too janky. I did a bit of an edit and added 2 Lightning Helix for a bit of life gain in early. In some play tests it's just hard to get to the Battlement/Thud combo, so perhaps this is destined to become a more quick damage sort of deck like you suggested. Trying to work with cards I already have makes it tough! I appreciate the feedback . . . going from a purely limited/draft player to constructed is a whole new world.

It feels like you’ve built 2 different decks and kindof fused them into one here.

Stuff like Impact Tremors encourages fast play by just swamping the board in as many creature tokens (usually gobbos) as you can, ending the game really quickly.

Lumbering Battlement typically wants to be in a slow controlly deck alongside things like Siege Rhino where you can just slowly grind down your opponent and prevent them being able to kill you.

So my advise would be to decide what you want here. And perhaps that means 2 decks, instead of 1.

If you’re going with quick damage, as Impact Tremors and Viashino Pyromancer suggest, then you just want to be hitting hard and fast. Lots of spells that make tokens, and then creatures that can buff em and win quickly. Nothing over 3cmc.

If you’re going with blinking creatures and gradual board advantage where the opponent is rendered helpless, i’d suggest going down the WBG colour route. Stuff like Siege Rhino , Satyr Wayfinder , Unburial Rites , and a decent amount of killspells, plus Lingering Souls to get you safely into the late game

Mistmeadow Witch can give you some good redundancy.

Stonehorn Dignitary could also be fun but might make some people in your playgroup mad lol.

Sunblast Angel can be wicked powerful in a deck like this.

Lumbering Battlement could also be fun in this deck?
