AdamChafee Ill throw in some Manticore of the Gauntlet too

Would cut Magmaroth and Manticore of the Gauntlet for Dynavolt Tower and consider running 2x in main Scavenger Grounds. Could potentially go creatureless and really upset your opponent with dead removal in hand.

So, you need more aggro here. 16 creatures is not enough especially when you're not running any removal aside from Cast Out. You should be running creatures like Plague Belcher instead of Manticore of the Gauntlet. Not everything needs to be -1/-1 counters either. I have found that going three colors with Solemnity is too rough, and have since gone to just B/W. I usually play Plague Belcher, Ammit Eternal, Dread Wanderer, Scrapheap Scrounger, and Gifted Aetherborn. You need removal spells instead of Lay Bare the Heart. Grasp of Darkness is still in standard for a month and Fatal Push is the best removal spell in standard, so you could definitely have a play set here. I do like the combination of Consuming Fervor with Solemnity, but at that point you're relying on having so many things go right. You need to have a good creature to land it on, Solemnity on board, and Consuming Fervor in hand. Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a good sideboard card but not so much mainboard. Bring him in against low creature decks. Invigorated Rampage is interesting, it's a good pump spell.

I would recommend having about ~20-24 creatures, ~24 lands, and the rest can be spells. In your sideboard you have so much to play with. Lost Legacy, Dispossess, Yahenni's Expertise, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Authority of the Consuls, Fragmentize, the list goes on. B/W have amazing sideboard cards for anything. I see you have Gideon of the Trials in your maybeboard so that could also be a good piece to add in to your main deck. I would add in two of them and test it out. <-- is the deck I'm currently playing with in terms of running mainboard Solemnity. Hopefully you can pull some ideas from there if it helps!

Zaueski I agree with both statements, it's a pretty nice common. For two mana, you can deal 1/10 of they're damage in health, and weaken / kill one of they're creatures. Plus, combined with The Scorpion God or any other creature you listed, it'd be pretty good. Also, they'res only about four red cards that give -1/-1 counters in soon to be standard since HOU isn't technically standard legal as of right now (The Scorpion God, blur of blades Manticore of the Gauntlet Soul-Scar Mage).

Im digging the deck, just put it together myself. Can you update the post with some lines you might look for or the general positions you want against control or aggro? Im sideboarding 4 Shock's just in case I need cheap small removal, they also go well with Insult / Injury for 1 mana 4 damage burn. What are you sideboarding? I also thought about putting 2 Manticore of the Gauntlet's in the sideboard just in case I need extra creature burn.

If youve been able to play some FNM's with this how did it go in your various matchups?

I have more Sin Prodders and Wolves of Devil's Breach if you want to trade for them. Also, I'd add more stuff that gives you benefits when they die. Stuff like Festering Mummy. I'd cut Falkenrath Gorger, Cursed Minotaur, Emberhorn Minotaur, Manticore of the Gauntlet, Nef-Crop Entangler, Scarab Feast, Nest of Scarabs, Fortuitous Find, edifice of authority, and Oracle's Vault to start doubling up on your other cards and putting in some cards that synergies more w/ sacing and discarding. Cards like Dread Wanderer, Bone Picker, bloodrage brawler, Flameblade Adept, wander in death, Miasmic Mummy, Fling. Those are only from Amonkhet. You've got all the madness cards from SOI block and I'm sure there's more from other sets in standard. Happy brewing!
