I agree with the earlier comments; so rather than be redundant, here are the cards I think you should cut first when making upgrades (in no particular order)

Dearly Departed (You have no reliable way to get it into the graveyard), Fiend Binder, Elder Cathar, Midnight Guard, Cathars' Crusade (a bomb in EDH, not Modern)..

And finally, Loxodon Warhammer is strictly better than Butcher's Cleaver.. Basilisk Collar & Brave the Sands might be worth considering too..

Also the combo idea is to enchant Midnight Guard with Presence of Gond and generate token while gaining life and removing life from the opponent.

frogkill45: I may just change the entire deck to fit around Famished Paladin instead of Midnight Guard. I never realized this and it could make this deck way better. Mega thanks for the suggestion and I'll start changing the deck pretty soon.

dalonewolf25 thank you for the advice! I really appreciate it!While I was adding in Presence of Gond I was actually aware of the infinite combo with Midnight Guard, however I stayed away from it, due to the fact that the chances if me hitting that infinite combo is very slim, and Midnight Guard would be a dead card in hand at that point, anyhow, this deck is more mean to slam people wide while turning big tokens sideways :)

At that point though isn't the Midnight Guard and Presence of Gond combo just more efficient?

I like the deck idea and it looks good to me, but since you are running Presence of Gond I would suggest also running Midnight Guard for the off chance you can draw both and combo off. Because everyone loves the army of elves that those two make together.

antacidbrn As I stated in the description, Gods Willing and Ranger's Guile can be used to protect Midnight Guard. As for the enchantment you mentioned, this is a Pauper deck (commons only) so no uncommons in the format.
