Hey mate,

Yes, my meta is a little creature light right now, lot of my local players are playing control, combo (like cheating out Emrakul), 8Rack or Death's Shadow. I'm also in a small city, so my meta isn't healthy to begin with. My latest consideration for my meta is to swap out something for Dimir Cutpurse and some evasion like Aqueous Form or Artful Dodge...

That said, when I was vs Humans, Werewolves, Elves etc, there was MB removal. I'd probably revert to Rattlechains and Topplegeist then too. Maybe Midnight Haunting, Beckon Apparition...their synergy with Nebelgast Herald is pretty good, as is Essence Flux. I MB'ed Essence Flux for a long time, it's well worth testing.

I'm currently finding (in my current meta), between Remand, Spell Queller and Nebelgast Herald (and the last 2 flash on their own), I can usually disrupt decently.

Curiosity is awesome on our evasive Spirits mate, can't recommend it enough. Even if it's on an early Mausoleum Wanderer or Selfless Spirit, even getting 2 cards out of it is huge tempo.

Thank for the help Blue_Flame

I like the Intangible Virtue, i might add 2 of those sinds i like Glorious Anthem because it gives my non tokens +1/+1 aswel, but the vigilance would be nice :3.

The Windbrisk Heights is a nice card but i went for lands that don't enter tapped.

And i thought about the Midnight Haunting's, true the instant speed is nice. but with Spectral Procession i get 3 instead of 2 but at sorcery speed.

Still thank for the comment :) really appreciate the help.

Pretty sweet deck you have going on here. A couple suggestions:

Intangible Virtue is a really sweet enchantment that you should run 4 of. Gives your dudes a permanent buff and vigilance, which is sweet.

You should play maybe 2-3 Windbrisk Heights if you can. You can actually activate the ability before damage, so you can play an enchantment or something to turn the tide of a battle. A really sweet interaction.

Lastly I'd play some number of Midnight Haunting. Instant speed cards are good, especially when you can flash in tokens at the end of your opponent's turn and kill them the following turn.

Happy deckbuildling!

If you are on a budget and want to be REALLY competitive, you might want to play Pauper instead of Legacy/Modern!

You can even do infinite tokens in Pauper, like Recover819 pointed... Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond

Besides that, the currently most played Tier 1 deck in Pauper is Stompy https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-stompy-22958#paper, which is a monogreen deck that aims to flood the battlefield with small creatures and hit as fast and consistent as possible.

Like said here before by Dr_Jay, Legacy has a very fast metagame, and you need very consistent (and expensive) mana base to that: fetches, shocks, old duals... And this is just for start, because the other cards are also kind of expensive.

But for casual play, your deck seems very fun and strong! Here are some tips of mine:

you should use Spectral Procession its just plain (get it, mono white, plains, ha) out better than Midnight Haunting unless you what to have it at instant speed but that is just not what your deck needs. you could also use Shefet Dunes as an extra buff.

The best way to circumvent the frustrations of slow acquisition is definitely to purchase singles online. If you have a card/paypal and $20 or so in the bank, it should be really easy to find what you need on TCGPlayer. If that doesn't work for you, checking game stores in your vicinity for singles is also an option, albeit a less reliable one. Some cards you might consider are Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Blisterpod, Advent of the Wurm, and Midnight Haunting.

Thanks Silver__Core for your insights! It indeed seems like a solid choise. I havent updated the deck in MTGo yet and I'll try both cards when I have time. Promise of Bunrei sure looks promising after your demonstrations! How many copies would you consider, and would you cut Midnight Haunting for them ? I also don't see the need for being instant speed, as all of my other stuff is always played on my main phases and I never really have mana lingering around, unless I SB the counterspells in.

Hey PeeBee and thanks for your suggestions. I don't want to go much over 100$ and havent come across any need for target removal yet, so Fatal Push is out of the question. Not Forgotten however has proven to be really slow, so I'll probably replace it with Midnight Haunting! Promise of Bunrei is new to me and looks really nice, I might have to look into getting those in the future. Doomed Traveler is an important 1-drop as I want to start building board from turn 1, unless my opening has a IoK. Lantern Kami could replace the Traveler but the traveler is stickier.
